  1. This is a nice phone, the 13MP selfie camera + 48MP main rear camera, 4GB/6GB RAM + 64GB /128GB storage are definitely the selling point of this device. And the prices of the device variants are not bad, still value for money.

  2. Another powerful one from Xiaomi, I’m rooting for the phone to be a big hit just like it’s predecessor…
    Having different variant makes it more interesting, it’s also good to note that the series inherited the gorrila screen.

  3. Honestly, this Redmi Note 8 smartphone is indeed a great smartphone packed with great specs and features… 👍👍. The 4000mAh and the 4GB RAM got me attracted to the phone.
