The Redmày chú ý series has become ubiquitous to lớn high performance and good cameras, all under Rs 15,000. While there’s no telling if this price barrier will be breached next time, Xiaongươi managed to paông chồng in even more fire power & four cameras with the new Note 8 Pro without increasing the price of the entry variant. It’s the second Redngươi lưu ý Pro smartphone khổng lồ launch in 2019 in India. If Realme và Samsung indeed put a dent in Xiaomi’s top spot in the Indian market, the Note 8 Pro is the company’s answer lớn snatch it bachồng. But with so many options now in the mid-range segment, is the Redmày Note 8 Pro the best mid-range điện thoại thông minh to buy right now?

Performance

*

Let’s start with the hardware under the hood. Ahy vọng all the Note series smartphones launched by Xiaongươi in India, the chú ý 8 Pro is quality in one way. It relies on a flagship MediaTek SoC instead of a Qualcomm mid-range processor. Xiaomi hopes that should give the phone an edge over the others in gaming performance, which is what the MediaTek Helio G90T powering the phone, is meant for. What’s more, the base variant of the Note 8 Pro comes with 6GB RAM while the top-kết thúc has 8GB RAM installed. The storage ranges from 64GB to lớn 128GB, making the Note 8 Pro a cut above sầu the rest in the sub-15k range where 4GB RAM & 64GB storage is still commonplace.

*

On benchmarks, the MediaTek G90T scores the highest in AnTuTu with 222904 in the mid-range segment, beating the Redngươi K20’s Snaprồng 730 by a good margin. cảnh báo that the Redmày K20 is priced much higher. On Geekbench 5, the lưu ý 8 Pro scores 352 & 1374 on single-core và multi-core CPU tests respectively. We compared the scores against the Exynos 9611-powered Galaxy M30s & they stood neck-to-neck.

*

During the course of testing, Geekbench updated the tiện ích khổng lồ Geekbench 5, a new version of the benchmarking tiện ích. Scores from Geekbench 5 are not comparable lớn those from Geekbench 4.

*

The Helio G90T sports a Mali G76 MC4 GPU that shares similarities with the GPU used in the Samsung flagship phones. On 3DMark Slingshot, the lưu ý 8 Pro scored 2378, beaten only by the Realme X with 2690 points. The rest of the competition fail lớn match up lớn this score indicating that the graphics rendering is indeed much better on the cảnh báo 8 Pro.

But that’s just the benchmark numbers. In the real world, the Redmi chú ý 8 Pro works without a hitch. There’s no lag whatsoever in the interface while the apps và coming from the OnePlus 7 Pro, I couldn’t feel a big difference in speed. Apps don’t take much time khổng lồ launch, especially the heavy ones lượt thích PUBG Mobile and gọi of Duty: mobile. The camera, however, takes a little longer to lớn initialise, but once ready, it takes baông chồng to bachồng shots without any shutter lag.

Gaming on the Helio G90T is a charm. This is the reason why Xiaomi chose to go with this chipset và in games lượt thích COD: di động and PUBG sản phẩm điện thoại, you can see the difference in unique in textures, draw distance, smoothness and the likes. For one, the G90T can max out the graphics settings for all the Android games we tested.

(Temperature in Degree Celsius)

A word about overheating. We earlier noted that the device might heat up a lot during longer gaming sessions. Having put the phone through an hour long session of PUBG Mobile & hotline of Duty: Mobile each, we noted that the surface temperature never went beyond 45 degrees, with the transparent case on. Unless the temperature goes beyond 50 degrees, the device is not overheating. However, in comparison, the Realme 5 Pro when put through the same duress never went beyond 41 degrees. So, relatively speaking, the cảnh báo 8 Pro does run a little warmer than its immediate competition, but it’s nothing that you should be concerned about. One thing that most enthusiasts were concerned when Xiaongươi announced switching khổng lồ MediaTek was the laông xã of development. However, we can confirm that Xiaongươi has indeed worked with developers và you can root the lưu ý 8 Pro & flash it with custom ROMs. Gcam for lưu ý 8 Pro is available which requires no root.

Software

*

Despite Android 10-based MIUI 11 announced at the launch event, the cảnh báo 8 Pro runs on MIUI 10 based on Android 9 out of the box. Xiaomi has promised the update will be rolled out in December even though /older devices lượt thích Redmày Ktrăng tròn, Note 7 Pro, & the likes are getting it as I write the Reviews. While the Note 8 Pro’s interface will feel familiar to lớn every Xiaomi user over the years, a big addition this time is the Alexa integration. Thanks to lớn the G90T, the Note 8 Pro is able lớn support two wake words. So Google Assistant và Alexa can both be used, although not simultaneously. Having said that, the cảnh báo 8 Pro failed to recognise the Alexa wake word 5 out of 10 times I tried.

Then comes the question of ads in the UI. Yes, it’s very much there but not quite in your face as before. Instead, Xiaomi has now intelligently packaged ads inlớn its system apps lượt thích the ứng dụng scanner (which annoyingly gets triggered every time you tải về an app), or in the minus-one screen, or in the notification panel. The lockscreen wallpaper changes every time you unloông chồng the phone (which is done by a third-buổi tiệc nhỏ content provider), while the UI itself is riddled with apps & games that Xiaongươi recommends you tải về. Thankfully you can turn off recommendations in the Settings app.

MIUI is great for those looking for an attractive, hassle-miễn phí user experience, but with so many third-buổi tiệc ngọt integrations, it’s not a good option for privacy enthusiasts.

Battery life

*

It’s the first time that a Redmi chú ý điện thoại thông minh boasts of battery capacity more than the usual 4,000mAh. The Note 8 Pro comes with a 4,500mAh battery but if you think that extends the battery life longer than the Redmày Note 7 Pro, you’ll be left disappointed. In fact, the battery life is just as good as its predecessor, despite the higher capacity. The reason for that is the MediaTek Helio G90T. It’s based on a larger manufacturing process, and as such, tends khổng lồ consume more power than the Snapdragon 675 in the Redmày lưu ý 7 Pro. We noticed this during our gaming thử nghiệm where the lưu ý 8 Pro consumed significantly more power during our 15 minute PUBG sản phẩm điện thoại run than the Note 7 Pro.

However, because of the higher capađô thị, the percentage drop during our gaming sessions was largely the same. On watching 30 minutes of Breaking Bad on Netflix, the battery dropped by 6 percent, while 15 minutes of PUBG sản phẩm điện thoại drained the battery by 6 percent.

Camera

*

The cameras on the Redmi cảnh báo 8 Pro is a step ahead of the ones on the Redngươi lưu ý 7 Pro. At least on paper. The 64MPhường Samsung GW-1 is a much larger sensor và there’s even a wide-angle và a macro lens in tow in the Note 8 Pro. Clearly, there’s no dearth of options. But are they any good?

Well, photos from the 64MP. look more or less similar lớn how photos from 48MP. camera turned out, except you get 16MP resolution after binning instead of 12MP.. It’s definitely a good thing, but we won’t Điện thoại tư vấn it an tăng cấp over the 48MPhường camera. Not unless you’re trying to lớn zoom in to lớn read that signboard far away. The wide-angle lens works best in the day. At night, it’s not much of use. The Night Mode in the camera lets you giaithuongtinhnguyen.vnally zoom in by 2X but doesn’t let you use the wide-angle lens. The macro lens is a rarity in smartphones but I also found myself using that mode the least.

Here are a few photos we shot with the lưu ý 8 Pro highlighting the pros & cons of the camera —

Primary 64MPhường camera (f/1.89 aperture, 1/1.7” sensor form size, 0.8um px pitch)

*

The primary 64MP camera in the binned 16MPhường mode adds some màn chơi of processing to lớn the photos. As a result, contrast & saturation are often boosted. The photos vì come out quite sharp with fast shutter response & autofocus.

*

*

Shot from iPhone 11 (for comparison)

The over-processing is more prominent in this image when compared against the same shot taken by the iPhone 11. Notice the iPhone is able to bring out the xanh colour of the sky just as well as that of the wall. The cảnh báo 8 Pro whitewashes the sky entirely while accentuating the colour of the wall.

*

Next, we looked at the dynamic range of the camera. Here too, the sky gets clipped completely while when the focus is on the wall. The photos from the 64MPhường mode has even lesser dynamic range.

Wide-angle lens (8MP f/2.2, 1/4", 1.12um)

*

Shot from 64MP.. primary lens

*

Shot from 8MPhường ultrawide camera

The wide-angle lens of the Note 8 Pro covers a much larger area than the primary camera, but the colour reproduction is vastly different. In both cases, the building was recognised by the AI and the necessary algorithms were put to gear, but even then, the photo from the ultra-wide lens looks quite different than the primary. The primary camera is also much sharper than the ultra-wide lens.

*

The cấp độ of distortion in the ultra-wide lens is also higher than we would like. The image has stretched out the person in the frame lớn make it look quite artificial. Considering this is taken after sunmix, the sharpness is also lacking, as compared to the shot taken using the primary camera.

Night Mode

*

*

The Night Mode is quite handy when shooting in low-light. Save for the fact that you have sầu to lớn wait a few seconds và can only shoot objects that are stationary, the night mode produces vibrant photos in low-light. This is one area where the cảnh báo 8 Pro is visibly better than the lưu ý 7 Pro. The resulting photos are sharp, vibrant & little to lớn no noise.

Indoor shot

*

Food photography with the cảnh báo 8 Pro is pretty satisfying, just like the sushi in this sample. The camera captured the image with high sharpness, & lots of details, although the focus around the edges seems lớn be a bit off.

Macro lens (2MPhường., f/2.4, 1/5", 1.75µm)

*

The 2MP. macro lens of the Note 8 Pro lets you go as cthảm bại as 2centimet to the object. As a result, you can take super close-up photos which earlier was not possible owing khổng lồ longer focusing distance in the wide-angle cameras. With a macro lens, while you can technically photograph objects by going super cthất bại, you won’t as much details as you lượt thích. The sharpness is much lesser than the primary lens and using it in low-light is not a good idea.

Design và Display

*

The Note 8 Pro has a good grip owing to the curved corners. The width of the phone is also just enough lớn use it one-handed. However, it is quite heftier than the lưu ý 7 Pro. We received the trắng colour variant for Reviews and it looks quite premium. Gorilla Glass 5 is present on both the front và the baông xã và you get a transparent case out of the box. It doesn’t come with a pre-applied screen guard, though. As far as điện thoại thông minh build & kiến thiết is concerned, the Redmi cảnh báo 8 Pro feels durable and premium.

*

The lưu ý 8 Pro also sports a larger 6.53-inch display. The resolution and aspect ratio remains the same, while the waterdrop notch has been shrunk ever so slightly. The welcome addition is HDR capability, although that only works in YouTube & in games like PUBG điện thoại. Having said that, we noticed that the display has a warmer tint by mặc định which can be corrected manually in the display settings.

Bottomline

The Xiaomày Redmày cảnh báo 8 Pro is an upgrade over the chú ý 7 Pro in almost every count. At least on paper. In the real world, there is a boost in gaming performance và display chất lượng while the added Alexa integration will be welcomed by some. The camera quality remains more or less the same despite a newer sensor, & that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Addressing a few burning issues, we initially concluded the Note 8 Pro might be overheating during longer gaming sessions. While the phone does run warmer than say the Realme 5 Pro, it doesn’t go beyond 50 degrees, which is what we consider overheating in smartphones. The battery life of the phone is just as good as its predecessor, despite a larger battery. By the looks of it, Xiaongươi took a bold step by choosing lớn go with a MediaTek flagship SoC and it seems khổng lồ have paid off. There’s no reason why shouldn’t buy the Redmi Note 8 Pro, save sầu for the pesky ads in the UI.
