  • *BOUGHT IN 2020, STILL IN USE* Wow.

    It's honestly a great phone. Of course, it's been in use for +2 years, so there are some down sides; the battery life has decresed (in 2020, it could last me for almost 2 days! Now, I need to use battery saver and it can last me for a day or less). It overheats more than previous months, but the performance is still doing great. The camera is okay, could be better. There are some tiny details like the flash, screen brightness and HDR quality in pictures that sometimes can be annoying, but for the price and time used, it's a great phone. Would I buy this phone now? Not really. Would I have recommended it when used it in the first year? Definitely. Worth every penny.

    Pros
    • Battery life in the first 2 years
    • Fast charging
    • Good performance
    • Great landscape pictures
    • Overheating at times after 2 years
    • NFC, unlike in Redmi Note 8
    Cons
    • Not the best flash for central camera
    • Screen brightness quality
    • HDR quality
    • No 5G

  • Great for anyone who wants good phone that works well and takes nice photos.

    I'll be honest, I had it and I think it's brilliant for people who doesn't need an ultimate spec beast. It's like one of the best Redmi budget phones you can get.

    Pros
    • Battery
    • Daytime photos
    • Good sound
    • Macro cam
    • Dual SIM + Micro SD
    • Fast fingerprint sensor
    Cons
    • No 5G
    • Not the fastest charging
    • Nighttime photos

  • Redmi Note 8 pro...

    is worth every single cent. Bought in 10/2019 & still using it every day. The battery should be changed next time because I am a power user. But it even fast charge in 1hr 30min from 20 to 100%.
    In 09/2020 bought a second one 4 my daughter. It was a 170€ 6/128GB "no-brainer".

  • Nice phone, when pixel experience ROM installed

    Begonia Pixel Experience(PE) Android 11 works a treat on this phone and extends the life of the phone beyond Xiaomi's miserable 2 major updates up to MIUi 12.5/Android 11, so to Android 12 and beyond. Stock PE camera works fine but does not give access to rear wide angle cam. Installing GCam from APK does however work fine with wide angle although takes a bit of work to find the right combo of APK/config file and can be slower to respond than the ROM cam app. GPay and banking work 'out of the box', Play Store is certified and widevine L1 is present giving proper resolution in Netflix etc.

    I have seen comments here re rubbish battery life after a few years, but I am getting about 8-8.5 hrs SOT per GSAM from this (bought used eBay) which I think is veeery good.

    All in all an A1 buy, used, and ROMd up.

    Pros
    • Size
    • Weight
    • Screen is just fine
    • Pixel experience ROM upgradable
    • Build quality
    • Nippy performance
    Cons
    • Low light cam
    • MIUI- some dislike

  • Perfect daily driver

    Been using for second year (bought new) - absolutely no problems out of the box. Probably best mid range phone I had so far, up to this one all of Chinese phones had some illness - if everything was great, there always was issue with something. However this phone - no complains.

    Pros
    • Clear screen
    • Long lasting battery
    • Happy with photo quality (wide angle and macro)
    • Great sound quality on call and mic
    Cons
    • 4G reception seems to be weaker, compared to others

  • A solid sub-$200 phone that you should consider. It punches above its weight even with its few flaws.

    In the one year I've used this phone, I'd say its sufficient and am ready to use it for another year. It's fairly good. I played COD on this device and boy/girl does it handle it effortlessly. The major con is that it can heat up to the point of getting uncomfortable more so if you use mobile data instead of wifi. I've got two major android and a few more security updates. It will not be getting any more major updates which is a bummer IMO. It's a powerful device that can easily handle Android 12 and even 13 and 14 in the future...but it's a shame 11 is its last. It's a recommended buy below the $200 mark. Just go for it.

    Pros
    • Good day time pics more so with the 64MP cam
    • Powerful enough even today. Handles games well
    • Solid screen quality
    Cons
    • Can get really hot under duress.
    • Battery can die fast with heavy use
    • Feels a little heavy in hand.
    • Teardrop notch can be an eyesore

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.
