The color temperature of the show is a little bit too cool for me, and the Studying mode makes it too heat.

Redmi Eight isn’t a lag-free cellphone

The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 chipset and is available in Three GB RAM and four GB RAM variants. I used to be utilizing the latter. I discovered the cellphone freezing a bunch of instances whereas launching a brand new app or when a number of apps would run within the background on the similar time.

However as soon as it did, gameplay was fantastic. I needed to play the sport on barely decrease graphics settings, however truthfully, I didn’t thoughts that. There have been additionally some body drops once in a while, however they didn’t make the sport unplayable.

Redmi Eight digicam is okay

On the Redmi 8, you get a 12 MP f/1.8 + 2 MP twin digicam on the rear. Up entrance, there may be an Eight MP digicam for selfies.

The colors are fairly near pure tones and the general footage additionally look nice, however if you zoom in you will note that the pictures don’t have a number of element to them.

Whereas the rear digicam comes with autofocus, I did discover the cellphone scuffling with the main target typically. In case you are somebody who likes to click on footage on the go, then the Redmi Eight isn’t for you. You’ll be able to blame the smartphone’s efficiency and the sluggish autofocus for that.

Daylight selfies are fairly first rate. When you maintain your cellphone very regular, additionally, you will get good particulars within the selfies.

The Redmi Eight permits video recording at as much as 1080p decision at 30 fps. At this decision and body price, the movies look good, with ample quantity of particulars and good colors, nevertheless, they critically lack stability.

The colors and particulars in it, nevertheless, are fairly good.

Curiously although, I additionally briefly in contrast the Redmi 8’s digicam with the Redmi 8A’s, which I discussed is a grand cheaper.
