In the line of the rest of the brand's terminals, this Xiaomi Redmi 8 is made of plastic. However, the firm has endowed it with a beautiful shiny back cover, which gives the feeling of holding a glass one. It is light and soft to the touch.

His physical appearance is unbeatable. It has rounded corners, as well as a slight curvature in the body to increase support. This means that taking it is comfortable and gives a feeling of firmness. Its weight is 188 grams, perfect for transport.

  • 2019 bang for the buck budget phone

    Got it for about 112USD in a local ecommerce platform flash sale back in December 12, 2019. The performance of the processor, 3GB RAM and 32GB internal are good enough for almost all basic mobile tasks except graphic heavy mobile games. Dual sim mobile signals, dedicated microSD, wifi, bluetooth, GPS, IR, front/rear cameras, microphone, and speakers are all working OK. The wireless FM does work without headphones unlike the Redmi Note 8 which still asks for a headphone to be plugged in the 3.5mm jack. The big battery takes a while to drain so it will last a full day of moderate usage like a champ!

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.
