Hot! Redmi Note 8 Pro heats up playing PUBG wih extreme settings

Is it any surprise that Redmi Note 8 Pro heats up playing PUBG wih HDR and extreme settings for one hour? Here’s a test video test showing how it happened, plus a second test video of another PUBG test on the same phone.

Just this morning, Mister Mobility wrote about Xiaomi fans’ disapointment about the Redmi Note 8 Pro using a Mediatek processor. Well, someone is trying to prove that Xiaomi made a mistake doing that. He set up a battery drain test in which he plays PUBG Mobile at extreme settings for one hour.

Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 8 Pro uses the MediaTek Helio G90T processor and also has a liquid cooling system to keep temperatures down during gameplay.

What the tester did is play PUBG Mobile in full HDR + high graphic setting at full brightness and wit the back cover on. It sounds rather extreme..like an overkill. Sure enough, the phone heats up.

In response, someone pointed out that any phone would heat up under those circumstances. What do you think? Unfortunately, the video is not in English.

We have a second Redmi Note 8 Pro Retail unit PUBG test video, also not in English. Aaaargh!

Were you able to piece anything together from the videos? If you understand the language(s) spoken in the videos, do a translation for us, please.

But what do you think? Is it any surprise that the Redmi Note 8 Pro heats up playing PUBG under extreme settings, and is that abnormal for any gaming phone?

  1. He puts the phone under extreme test so, that should be expected. But the fact that the phone didn’t collapse despite the heat still shows that it’s a really good device. Yeah. It might need some upgrade soon but, I think any phone with such specs would also heat up same way, if subjected to the same level of pressure.

  2. That’s a very biased and prejudiced test..

    The question should be,if other devices are placed under the same conditions,what would be their performance compared to that of the Note 8 Pro?

    Until the other devices at comparable price point are tested,this video should not be taken at face value..

  3. They are saying that the phone is really overheating a lot. They are saying that the phone is heating so much that you can cook using that device. They also say snapdragon is a lot better, mediatek is a mistake. They overally criticize the phone saying xiaomi made a mistake by using mediatek SoC
