    Looks like it's still a solid phone in 2020. Good for a user that wants excessive tasks to be done in no time. It's quick and responsive, has a loud speaker and the battery usually lasts after a day of usage. Although I got disappointed from the DAC after coming from a 10V Mi A1 which was at the same price-range 2 years ago. Maybe it's just that my headphones are made for amps to be loud enough and have bass. As for the quad camera it looks good but it needs modded gcam which sometimes requires root. Last but not least miui has a wonderful UI but it's bloated with ads, i had to flash xiaomi.eu to fix that.

    After 5 weeks of waiting I finally received the Xiaomi redmi note 8 smartphone.
    Just like the Redmi note 7 that I used until now, the Redmi note 8 is a Xiaomi 4G smartphone with an impressive value for money.

    In terms of performance, the Redmi note 8 smartphone is equipped with a SnapDragon 665.
    This SOC is mid-range oriented and allows fluid use of all the applications that can be found in the play store.
    Coupled with this SOC, we have the choice of having 3 or 4 GB of RAM and 32 or 64 GB of storage.

    Antutu Redmi Note 8: 173991 points

    The 6.3 inch screen is great, just a notch like drop on the top of the screen.
    The colors, the brightness, the viewing angles .... are clearly under control.

    The 4000 mAh autonomy of the Redmi note 8 smartphone is comfortable and can last between one to two days with fairly sustained use of the phone.

    The Redmi note 8 camera is really good.

What is a Ki score?
Ki is an automatic score based on the specifications and prices of devices. It is calculated using over 200 variables to rank smartphones, tablets and other devices from best to worst.
How do we calculate the Ki?

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:

  • Design and screen
  • Hardware and performance
  • Camera
  • Connectivity
  • Battery

Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.

Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.

Does the Ki score change?

The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
