Design that is functional:

Talking about the design, the Xiaomi Mi 8 follows the iPhone Design aesthetics. To be more specific it follows the iPhone X design schema from the notch size to the speaker grill. There isn’t anything new about the way it looks. The Xiaomi Mi 8 has a reliable rear panel made up of Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It is shatter-resistant but doesn’t handle fingerprint smudges and scratches really well. Keeping that all aside, the Xiaomi Mi 8 is a gorgeous looking phone and is perfectly functional. It has elegant aesthetics and feels entirely premium.

Camera & Crispiness:

The camera could be the most striking aspects of the Xiaomi Mi 8. The device offers dual-lens setup with 12-megapixel sensor on the back and freaking 20MP front-facing camera. On the rear, the main lens has an f/1.8 aperture while the other has an f/2.4 aperture. I’m glad that the Xiaomi Mi 8 offers Optical Image Stabilization rather than the EIS.

The camera outperforms most of the other players in this price tag. The pictures produced where rich in contrast with perfectly calibrated sharpness and dynamic range. Further adding cherry on top, the camera is capable of taking portrait shots with a bokeh effect generated with precision by the Xiaomi’s artificial intelligence. Undoubtedly the Xiaomi Mi 8 is the best camera smartphone in this price tag.

Display that strikes:

The Xiaomi Mi 8 offers a 6.21-inch AMOLED panel with a 2,248 x 1,080 pixel resolution and a 18.7:9 aspect ratio. Xiaomi uses the Sunlight Display or in other words, the HDR displays. This is majorly used in-order to maintain the color accuracy even under sunlight. Also the HDR displays instead of pumping up the screen brightness they tend to lighten up the dark areas on the screen thus saving up on battery power. In particular the display is beautiful and has amazing reproduction of colors.

The MIUI 10 Experience:

The Xiaomi Mi 8 runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with MIUI 10 Update. Although the MIUI 10 brings in a lot of flavors from the Android Pie which adds the cherry on-top. Usually I’m not a fan of custom ROMs but the MIUI 10 looks gorgeous. The user experience is fluid and packs in a lot features. MIUI overall feels very simple.
