Redmi note 8 pro

The people who love the budget-friendly smartphones here are good news from the Xiaomi they have launched the new smartphone called Redmi Note 8 pro. This smartphone is another beast from the Xiaomi company that is suitable for your budget.

This is a review of the Note8 Pro. Which is the bigger brother to the Redmi Note 8. It is the classier version in this lineup sort of and, I will talk about my usage of this device as well as what I will consider the pros and cons of using it.

The Redmi Note 8 Pro is point 2-3 inches bigger than the Redmi Note 8 and also shares the same Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and back of it, which gives them quite the premium feel as far as budget devices go.

In the box, you will get a sim ejector tool, warranty card, and clear soft case with relevant cutouts. And you also get an 18w fast charger with type c USB cable. If you are looking for headphones then you will not find this in the box.

You also get other specs that it comes with.64MP High-Resolution camera among 4 other cameras, Liquid Cooling Tech for which TheRedmi Note 8 Pro was the first device to use with this processor and it dedicated to gaming. In fact, when you check the teardown, you'll get to see the Heat sync pipe for gamers more about that.

Color options for the Redmi Note 8 Pro include Mineral Grey, Forest Green, and of course Pearl White. Then, of course, we've got the 4,500 mAh Battery with 18W fast charger out the box and the regular Note 8 comes with a10W charger in the box but both of them are capable of 18W fast charging.

Design Overview

My first impression on the build quality of the Redmi Note 8 Pro is that it slightly heavier than the regular Note 8 and of course the side of the device feels very flush in the hands when holding it. On top of the Note 8 Pro.

 We get an Infrared sensor remote for controlling appliances like air conditioners and a microphone port, on the right side, it the power button and volume rockers while on the left we get the hybrid sim slot which is not like the dedicated slot from the regular note 8, but if you want to expand your storage by 256GB, it will beat the cost of an extra sim. 

On the bottom, we get a headphone jack, USB c port which is also capable of reverse charging. We get another microphone port and speaker grilles. The front of the Note 8 Pro gets the 20MP Selfie camera, with the earpiece right above it and the charging indicator. On the back Just like Note 8, the camera bump here is more prominent and it gets an extra layer.

On the back of the Redmi Note 8 Pro, there are 4 cameras a 64MP wide-angle camera, and similar to the Note 8, the 3 other cameras are for 8MP ultra-wide and dual 2mp, except one is for ultra macro shots and the other is for depth sensing. the back of this device is actually very attractive especially the Pearl white version. The way it reflects looks really nice and I also like the fact that its glass too.

It did weight quite well heavy in the hand and putting it on a scale shows that it 199 grams compared to 190 on the regular Note 8 and this is not too much, however adding the case on the Note 8 Pro, the weight goes up to 220 grams.


  The device brings us to MIUI 10.4.4 based on Android 9 and I got a security patch update for the Note 8 Pro for10.4.5, it sadly wasn't available on the Note 8 though that only got an MIUI 10.3.5. The Processor of the Redmi Note 8 Pro is a specific one. The Redmi Note 8 Pro is the first device to come shipped with the Helio G90T Gaming Processor.

And, of course, it comes with an Octa-core processor of 2.06GHz with Mali- G76 GPU for Graphics, and I did play some games. All the games played on the device had no lags and it did hold up well. In my experience with the Note 8 Pro, gaming did stress the phone battery a bit and I did notice the phone getting warmer after a while but it did cool up pretty fast, intact, much faster than the Redmi Note 8. This can be attributed to the liquid cooling system I mentioned earlier.

My version here is with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage and the highest available one from the brand has the same 6GB of RAM but 128GB of storage but of course, a 256GB micro SD can enlarge the device storage. This ram will definitely give you the best experience of this phone while you are doing multitasking on this device.

Note 8 which has Bluetooth 4.2, this has Bluetooth 5.0 so you can do this like sharing wireless audio.


Screen resolution on here is Full HD+ at 1080 and. It got a decent contrast ratio of 1500 to 1 for an LCD display so better color accuracy, supports HDR and it very viewable outdoors. I found streaming videos to be very clear although it capped at 1080p, it still did look plenty sharp and intact, it streams in HDR as well and the colors were just beautiful to look at.

Now the cameras of the Redmi Note 8 Pro, wow. Well, just like the Note 8, we also get 5 total cameras on the Redmi Note 8 Pro. There is a 20MP f2.0 aperture sensor upfront for selfie photos and videos which records at a maximum of 1080p and also 720p, both in 30fps The main 64MP sensor on the back has an aperture of f1.89 and it doubled the ultra-high resolution camera. The second camera is an 8MP 120-degree ultra-wide lens, followed by a 2MP macro lens and a 2-megapixel depth sensor separated from the sides.

The back camera records in 4k at 30 fps. In the camera app, we get slow motion which shoots at 120, 240, and 960 Frames per second, we also get short video mode, and you can even add music to it while recording but it's a maximum of 15 seconds.

You even get Panorama for the front selfies as well, no night mode in the front of course but we have portrait mode, no 64MP mode, but we get the rest of photo video, short video, and no slow motion. The back camera gives you a total of 10x in terms of digital zooming.

One part of the video quality of the camera on this Note 8 Pro in terms of the camera is the stabilization. Both the Note 8 and 8 Pro as far as I know don't have stabilization.

Battery Specification

In terms of battery life though, we've got a 4,500 mAh built-in battery on this and after gaming on the device for 30 minutes battery went down by 15%, from 35% at the time to 20%.In terms of medium to heavy daily use, I couldn't really drain the battery to 0%, I usually ended in 20-35% approximately at the end of the day so I'd say its pretty impressive battery life.
