I already have the Redmi Note 8T for some months. The reason for the purchase was mainly the good camera. I can also confirm this. The camera makes very good and sharp pictures. It still has weaknesses in darker rooms. But this is a problem most mobile phones have and will probably become better and better in the next generations of cameras.
The mobile phone is also suitable for beginners. The installation is very easy. The security features are ok, the fingerprint sensor I use works great.
All in all it’s a phone for the average user who doesn’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on one model and is hardly better. I appreciate the mobile phone during my hikes, where I have already taken many great pictures. I was able to retire my digital camera because of it. During my last hikes I recognized a problem and blamed it on a defect of a sensor. The display got dark at times when I wanted to take pictures in landscape format. What could this be? There is an app in the software of the phone where you can report problems to the technical support of the manufacturer. I did, but until today (about 10 days) no answer.
I have therefore contacted the technical support of Amazon. All respect to that. I immediately got an answer with several tips, the service employee wanted to call me back the next day if I was successful. This is what I understand by service. Thanks to Amazon and its good service.

Leider the tips did not eliminate the annoyance, so I searched intensively on the net and could read about a possible cause. In fact, not the mobile phone was the cause, but my sunglasses. These have a so-called polarization filter which caused this effect. This is also a tip for other sunglasses wearers and also for the technical support.
The mobile phone is definitely worth a recommendation.

So far I was sceptical about buying smartphones for less than 200 Euro. Nevertheless I wanted to test a Smartphone from Xiaomi, because I have read a lot of positive things so far. Therefore I bought the Redmi Note 8T. First of all, a thank you to Amazon for the super fast delivery.
I received the Smartphone yesterday. In the scope of delivery the phone is included and a charging cable. If you expect headphones, I have to disappoint you, they are not included. The mobile phone makes, for this price, a very high-quality impression. It is quite big, but nevertheless it lies very well in the hand and it runs quite fast and can be set up quickly. The only thing I noticed negatively so far is that the 4 cameras protrude on the back, that is at least 3 mm, which even a protective cover cannot secure properly. Here you have to take care that you put the mobile phone down carefully.
Whoever is looking for a mobile phone for normal demands, i.e. surfing, phoning etc. is best served with this mobile phone.

I had the Sony Xperia XA2 before. Its camera was relatively weak despite 23 MP. The camera of the Redmi Note 8T is super for my needs and much better than my previous photo. It shoots sharp photos in daylight. Only at night the quality decreases significantly. But I can’t complain about the price of 191 Euro.

I ordered the Redmi Note 8T which is rated here after intensive research. It offered me an excellent price/performance ratio. It was delivered quickly from an EU warehouse.
After unpacking and one charging process it was directly supplied with my apps.

Most of it worked quite well, but I sent it back after a week for the following reasons:

1.
The range of the Bluetooth function was completely insufficient and was only a few meters. The connection to a MiBand 2 (our own product, mind you) broke down after a few meters distance as well as to a modern BT headphone.
All coupling and decoupling attempts didn’t bring any improvement as well as several changes of location outside and inside the building. My previous Honor 6X always had a reliable BT connection, even from the ground floor up to the 1st floor.

2.
The screen rotation function is very sensitive. Simply placing the device on the table, for example to write a message, directly resulted in rotating the display.

3.
In operation when viewing a simple internet page, the message ‘No service’ was suddenly displayed and my SIM was deactivated. This happened about a dozen times within a few days.

I unfortunately cannot recommend the device. Working with it and taking pictures is otherwise really fun !

Try to clean your sim card with alcohol or use the other sim cards slot. Had the problem also once with a Samsung, there a cleaning helped. 🙂

I’ve had a Huawei P20 Pro before, therefore I was a little bit worried about the downgrade. The camera is alright, with a sturdy hand and a non moving object it can take quite good pictures.
The overall speed is considering the price difference of similar phones really good, though you will need to empty the cache and memory quite often by yourself in order for it not to come to a complete standstill.
The utilisation of the notch is quite bad in some apps, if you black out the area around the notch in the settings, most apps will not recognise this and you will be missing a portion of the screen.
The battery life is excellent, I am a heavy user myself and I usually have to charge the phone once a day.
If you leave the screen on for a while, for example in a game where there is a button on the same spot all the time, it will burn into the screen and you will be able to see it when browsing through the menu or so.
Overall my experience is really good though. I have had flagship phones for the past 6 years and using this Xiaomi now feels like a little downgrade but taking the price into account it is the best value for money I can imagine.

Good mobile phone for the price. The face recognition leaves a little bit to be desired, but the fingerprint sensor is good for that.
The latest Android version is loaded up which is handy if you always download new apps.
The battery performance is very good and the functionality is the same as with any other Android phone.
Where you notice a difference is the weight of the phone. At the beginning it seemed very heavy to me. But you get used to it quite fast.
All in all I am very well satisfied with this cheap alternative.
Had always bought Sony phones before because of the good camera. But this one can surprisingly easily keep up

Because of the many good reviews and the good test results, I decided on the Xiaomi. Unfortunately, it was not convincing at all. The first phone I received constantly shut itself down and restarted. Back to factory settings, the error persisted. All updates pulled no change anyway. So I sent it back and received a replacement model. As usual via Amazon no problem at all. The replacement phone actually ran great for a few days until the battery times under 20 percent much. The subsequent charging actually took 2! days until the battery level was back at 100 percent. Strangely enough there were no problems when charging over 20 percent, the battery charged normally. As soon as it was below 20 percent again, however, the problem with eternally long charging times arose again. Typical problem solution with reset to factory default, all updates loaded etc. tried, no improvement. I didn’t want to start a third try and decided to use a different phone.

Fast delivery, detailed information on how to set up the Xiamoni phone was neither included nor available on the Internet. Therefore very high expenditure of time necessary.

If you look at the advertisements for new smartphones nowadays you get the impression that these are photo cameras that you can use to make phone calls. But those who are looking for a smartphone that is fast and reliable and also has a good price-performance ratio will find it in the Redmi Note 8T. Why spend a lot of money if you can get a great device for a measly 180 euros? But if you need a status symbol for your smartphone, you have to look elsewhere.

What can I say the part is simply good.
I don’t regret buying it, the smartphone is an announcement to the expensive manufacturers, cheap is not necessarily worse.
Clear purchase recommendation.
Ah yes, the led notification’s ad is missing, I personally don’t care because I look at the clock anyway more often 🙂

For this price, the phone is really recommendable, the battery ust persistent, the display good. The performance is not on the top level, but it is enough to play a few games and a smooth display.

Obviously, the note 8t comes with a lot of good specs for the price. However,
– bluetooth connectivity is bad (stops for no reason, etc.)
– the device is quite heavy compared with competitors
– customer support is super unfriendly.
