With an overall score of 99, the Mi 8 shares the 4th place with the Galaxy S9+. DXOMark’s review of the Mi 8’s camera says, “Xiaomi might not be the first name to think of when looking for a high-end smartphone, but the Mi 8 offers camera performance that is up there with the best. The Mi 8 camera is capable of super-fast and accurate autofocus, along with excellent exposures and detail rendition under a wide range of lighting conditions. It has good dynamic range and a genuinely usable telephoto option with good quality 2x magnification, as well as an effective simulated bokeh mode. The Mi 8 is also a solid performer in video mode — all of which, when put together, make for a highly attractive package and a good value proposition.”

Xiaomi launched the Mi 8 smartphone in China on May 31, 2018. The company also announced the Mi 8 Explorer Edition and a smaller Mi 8 SE model.
