Reviews for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 2021

68% Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 2021 review
Source: GSM Arena English EN→zh-CN
The original Redmi Note 8 from 2019 is one of the most successful models the company has ever put out, recently surpassing 25 million in total sales. However, the same formula that made it popular would no longer work as easily a couple of years later. Worse still, the Redmi Note 8 (2021) is arguably worse than its vanilla predecessor. The processor swap from a Snapdragon 665 to a MediaTek Helio G85 has resulted in the same performance numbers, plus an upgraded Bluetooth 5.2 radio, but 4K video capture is no longer available. Even Xiaomi itself already has better phones in the same price bracket, such as the Redmi Note 10 or the Redmi 10. It is absolutely possible that we might see a further decrease in the Redmi Note 8 2021's pricing or some aggressive carrier subsidies and that would help its desirability. That scenario, however, is the only one where we currently see ourselves recommending the Redmi Note 8 2021.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 (2021) – an updated bestseller with different chipset
Source: Laptop Media English EN→zh-CN
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 (2021) can be a decent daily driver – it feels somehow compact when compared to other budget phones from its class like Redmi 9 or Redmi Note 9. The overall performance is just fine if you don’t use don’t plan to use it for super-heavy multitasking. In addition, the main camera is spot-on and the battery life isn’t bad at all. The problem is that this Xiaomi phone can be cannibalized by another sibling from the same brand – the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9. The latter offers similar hardware and camera configuration, but it boasts a bigger display, a bigger battery, and goodies like reverse charging for almost the same price tag. But it lacks the eye-candy glass back of the Redmi Note 8 (2021) and for some, the Redmi Note 9 can be a bit bigger for comfortable usage. So, as usual, the choice is in your hands.
