Xiaomi Note 8T: Not the Greatest Move From Xiaomi

Xiaomi Note 8T: Not the Greatest Move From Xiaomi

  • 6.3" IPS LCD, 1080 x 2340p Display
  • Primary: 48MP Camera, Ultra wide: 8MP Camera, Macro camera: 2MP, 13 MP Selfie Camera
  • Snapdragon 665 Octa-core CPU
  • Adreno 610 GPU
  • 3,4,6 GB of RAM; 32,64,128 GB Internal Storage
  • 4000 mAh Battery

The Note 8T is not a great phone. I would not recommend this device for anyone. 

Starting with the design, the Note 8T has large bezels, and one of the smallest fingerprint scanners. The device is on the heavy side coming in at around 200 grams. The display is a 1080 x 2340p LCD with pale colors, a dim max-brightness, and terrible contrast. 

The Note 8T's biggest weakness is its processing power. The phone suffered even while doing the simplest tasks such as opening applications, watching videos, and listening to music. You will experience lots of lag and freezing while playing games on the phone as well. 

The device comes with the MIUI interface with Android 9. The MIUI interface makes the phone look babyish giving applications soft corners and pale colors. The interface comes pre-installed with lots of bloatware and other unnecessary applications that just take up storage. 

The battery life on the Note 8T is not that bad, but it takes very long to fully charge compared to other devices with a 4000 mAh battery.

The only good thing about this device is its 48 MP camera. For starters, it is the cheapest phone with a 48 MP camera. The camera takes decent photos which is expected with a 48 MP camera but if it caused Xiaomi to cut down on other features, it was definitely not worth it. 

Overall, I would stay away from the Note 8T from Xiaomi. We do not sell this device but, you can find several other unlocked Xiaomi flagships at
