Mention 3 Pros of your review device:
1. Design and build quality Design on the back panel is an Aura mirror design which gives different patterns when light hits it from different angles. It is a hefty device with good grip to it. It also comes with nano-coating which makes this device splash-proof, this is a rarity in this price segment.
2. Huge battery (5000 mAh) There was a time when only a few devices came with a 4,000 mAh battery and were considered battery powerhouses. Now 4,000 mAh is quite mainstream so Xiaomi here has gone an extra mile to go with a 5,000 mAh battery. This together with MIUI, which is very battery efficient, offers an excellent screen on time on this device. This device will easily get you through more than a day on a single full charge. The fact that the processor inside is quite less powerful, makes the battery performance on this device a handful. Moreover, the Redmi 8 comes with support for 18W fast-charging.
3. AI dual rear cameras On the rear side of the Redmi 8, we see a dual-camera setup with a 12MP primary sensor and a 2MP depth sensor. These come with AI portrait mode, AI scene detection and much more. The 12MP Sony IMX 363 Sensor is capable of clicking some life-like images.
Mention 3 Cons of your review device:
1. Average camera performance Even though the hardware is there, the camera software on the Redmi 8 lets it down. The images do not come out much sharp, and it suffers from a fair bit of lack in details. The portrait mode is not accurate all the time and if the camera is not your priority on the device, then you can consider this. However you should know that you are still getting an average camera which could get better in the future with further updates.
2. Average CPU performance The Snapdragon 439 is under the hood here which is extremely low-end even at this price point where there are phones with a similar price tag but better processors. Gaming will not be pleasant at all in this device and with time the phone might even slow down during normal application usage.
3. Spammy ads The famous user interface of Xiaomi called as MIUI sadly contains ads. Advertisements are represented in the UI which discomforts the consumer.

Your Smartphone's Camera Review
Redmi 8 sometimes took a bit too long to lock onto a subject, and didn't quite get exposures right when dealing with white subjects or bright backgrounds. At night as well as in portrait mode during the day, we often encountered a deep yellow tone in the viewfinder and in saved shots. We had to point away from our subject or restart the camera app to force it to calibrate its colour balance.
You can get some nice depth-of-field naturally using the camera in its default mode. Portrait mode shots looked botched in the viewfinder, like the phone was simply unable to detect edges, but the saved results were fine. The front camera didn't capture great detail in selfies.
The Redmi 8 is a good offering for its price of Rs 7,999 considering the big battery, and decent performance coupled with a stylish design. The weak point is the camera, which remains an issue on budget phones. The only problem is that given similar specifications, many users might prefer the Redmi 8A which is cheaper, runs the same processor and offers something very similar.
