Let's start with the Front, the Front is mostly the same as the Realme 8 series, but the Note series has some borderlines along the edges and corners to differentiate It is ok in normal but while watching the videos it slightly distracts not that much if you, Note 8 Comes in Four Colour Variant: Space Black, Neptune Blue, Moon Light White, and Cosmic Purple - If you buy Space Black or MoonLight White you are free from the Stripes. Other than that the screen is perfect.

When we go to the back instead of placing the camera in the center of the back the camera is placed in one top corner. The camera bump is on the Rough side so the camera gets less damage when you place it on a table but the phone wabbles more due to the camera projection, but if put a back cover provided along with the back makes the camera projection less so there will be less wabbling. Both sides of Redmi cover Note 8 with Gorilla Glass 5 and coated to make it splash proof which is a welcome move by Xiaomi.

The bottom is provided with a Type C port and a 3.5mm jack, With a single speaker, The power button is in a perfect position and is reachable but the volume button on the right is slightly higher to reach. The fingerprint sensor is also placed in the right position. The SIM slot is placed on the left side.


Note 8 is provided with the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor as Realme 5 and Vivo U10 which is at the INR 10,000 category. But the performance is quite remarkable for normal usage. Display quality is quite remarkable and it best suits the people who love to see a movie on their mobile often. When it comes to gaming it provides a decent gaming experience like PUBG but not in HD playing the processor lags behind, but for the normal resolutions, the High Graphics game will need to say it's restricted to some limits, and light heat issues also arise.


The Problem is the Network that you can only use 4G networks for your usage Note 8 won't support a 3G network which will be a drawback for this price range. But it is provided with Bluetooth 5 version so your Bluetooth head/Earphone will get better connectivity. Even provided with a single speaker it performs quite well it is more than enough for a small room.


The Quad camera also performs better during the day with all its modes. But Night photography is quite a bit challenging. The Selfie camera is also Decent.


When it comes to the 4000mAh Battery it performs well in normal conditions with a backup of even one and a half days in normal usage the 18W fast charger is a welcome move it charges the Phone pretty quick.

  2. Night Photos bit challenging.

  4. Wabbling of Phone when placed on the table without cover.
