Xiaomi redmi note 8t cons

One of many

Recently, technology manufacturers are clearly lazy: nothing original in terms of design, the colors are the same, the form factor is the same, the arrangement of the elements is identical to the natural one.

xiaomi, redmi, note, cons

What is Redmi Note 8T in terms of appearance? It is a large rectangle with rounded corners, painted in the most common colors: gray, blue, and white. Of course, everything is done with gradients. Without this important design detail in 2019, you can not release smartphones. you will find yourself out of trend.

In the hand it feels very large and rather weighty, and even thick: 161x75x8.6 mm and 200 grams. However, surprisingly, using Redmi Note 8T is convenient and pleasant.

On both sides, the smartphone is protected by fifth generation Corning Gorilla Glass. It is impossible to verify whether this is so. The oleophobic coating is weak: the glasses are instantly covered with fingerprints and other traces. With a microfiber cloth, traces can be easily erased.

Memory, chipset, performance

This model has several modifications with 3/4 GB of RAM and 32/64/128 GB of memory. I had a 4/64 GB device on my review.

Let’s see what he has with the speed of RAM: 5100 MB / s. this is a weak result, usually smartphones in the price category 10,000. 15,000 rubles.

Built-in memory: for writing. sad 80 MB / s, for reading. 260 MB / s. Overall, very mediocre. It becomes clear that the manufacturer clearly saved on RAM and built-in memory. Think Vivo V17 with 8GB RAM and 5000MB / s speed.

Another strange moment. The model is equipped with 64 GB, but only 48 GB is available, with about 40 GB free. That is, buying a 64 GB smartphone, in fact, you get only 40 GB.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 is used as a processor: the announcement of the summer of 2019, 8xKryo 260 up to 2 GHz, 11 nm, Adreno 610 graphics. A platform for relatively affordable smartphones of the mid-low price category. Actually, this is where Redmi Note 8T comes in.

In the performance test Antutu Benchmark, the device gets about 180,000 points. In real life, Redmi Note 8T behaves without any lags or brakes. It copes well with games: the popular Call Of Duty runs great at medium settings, but at maximum you can feel a drop in frames, and a serious one.

Controls and connectors

For the first time in many years of testing smartphones, I saw a double microphone hole. Usually either one or 3, 4, and so on. The two holes look odd. Next to them is a 3.5 mm jack, and to the right are USB-C and a speakerphone.

On the right is the power button and volume rocker. Small in size, with a clear and confident stroke. On the left is a non-combined SIM and memory card slot.

Above is an additional microphone and an IR transmitter. I consider the last element an atavism, but apparently Xiaomi still has stocks of these sensors. Let them “mold”, we do not mind.

On the back there is a large module with 4 cameras. There was no attempt to beat him in any way or make him smaller. It seems to me that it was possible to mount this module more gracefully into a case with a thickness of almost 9 mm. However, I began to forget that

A selfie camera and a speaker are located on the top of the front panel. The speaker is not very loud, but it sounds clear, without any extraneous sounds.


Before writing a review, I decided to refresh my memory on the Xiaomi models. Oh, how I do not envy potential buyers, because they are faced with a very difficult choice: the same model can be presented in several versions, and the difference is literally reduced to trifles. Even worse, there are Xiaomi and Redmi smartphones on the Russian market. Some have the Note series and the Pro, T consoles, and others have everything the same.

For example, do not confuse Xiaomi Mi Note 10, 9T Pro with Redmi Note 8T, Note 8 Pro and so on. In general, tin, not naming: “It should be simpler! Simpler! Happiness is simple! “.

Actually, what am I talking about? At the end of 2019, a model called Redmi Note 8T was introduced. The company itself is positioning it as an affordable camera phone. I see her as a real fighter for the “best smartphone up to 20,000 rubles” award. The new product was installed with everything that users wanted: here’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset, 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of memory, in addition to 4 cameras with a “width”, “macrik” and a 48 MP depth-of-field sensor, and a 4000 mAh battery and NFC. Yes, I forgot to say that the device is equipped with separate slots for two SIM-cards and a memory card!

What else is needed for happiness? That’s right. an adequate price! For the 3/32 GB version, they will ask for 14,000 rubles, for 4/64 GB. 16,000 rubles, and for 4/128 GB. 18,000 rubles. Personally, I would not save and buy the maximum configuration. The difference is only 4,000 rubles, but the memory gain will be obvious. However, you always have a non-combined microSD slot, so you can save a couple of thousand rubles on the 4/64 GB version.

Redmi Note 8T review: affordable camera phone


Redmi Note 8T is equipped with a 6.3-inch IPS display with a resolution of 2340 × 1080, covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The physical dimensions are 67 × 146 mm, the aspect ratio is 19.5: 9, and the dot density is 409 ppi. The bezel width around the screen is 4mm at the sides, 5mm at the top and 9mm at the bottom, the bezel is wide for today.

The front surface of the screen is made in the form of a glass plate with a mirror-smooth surface, resistant to scratches. Judging by the reflection of objects, the anti-glare properties of the screen are better than that of the Google Nexus 7 (2013) (hereinafter simply Nexus 7). For clarity, here is a photo in which a white surface is reflected in the turned off screens (on the left. Nexus 7, on the right. Redmi Note 8T, then they can be distinguished by their size):

The screen of the Redmi Note 8T is noticeably darker (brightness in photographs is 104 versus 114 in the Nexus 7). The doubling of reflected objects in the Redmi Note 8T screen is very weak, which indicates that there is no air gap between the layers of the screen (more specifically, between the outer glass and the surface of the LCD matrix) (OGS type screen. One Glass Solution). Due to the smaller number of boundaries (such as glass / air) with very different refractive indices, such screens look better in conditions of intense ambient light, but their repair in the case of cracked outer glass is much more expensive, since the entire screen has to be changed. On the outer surface of the screen there is a special oleophobic (grease-repellent) coating (better than Nexus 7 in efficiency), so fingerprints are much easier to remove, and appear at a slower speed than in the case of ordinary glass.

With manual brightness control and with a full-screen white field, the maximum brightness value was about 470 cd / m² under normal conditions, and in very bright light it rises to 630 cd / m². The maximum brightness is very high, and given the excellent anti-glare properties, the readability of the screen should be good even on a sunny day outdoors. The minimum brightness value is 1 cd / m², so in complete darkness the brightness can be lowered to a comfortable value. In the presence of automatic brightness control by the light sensor (it is located to the right of the cutout of the front speaker, very close to the top edge of the front panel). In automatic mode, when the ambient light conditions change, the screen brightness both increases and decreases. The operation of this function depends on the position of the brightness adjustment slider: with it, the user can try to set the desired brightness level in the current conditions. If you do not intervene, then in complete darkness, the auto-brightness function reduces the brightness to 7.5 cd / m2 (low), in an office illuminated with artificial light (about 550 lux) sets it to 100 cd / m2 (normal), and conditionally in direct sunlight the brightness reaches 630 cd / m² (maximum, this is how it should be). We slightly increased the brightness in complete darkness and for the above three conditions we got 15, 120 and 630 cd / m², this result was fine for us. It turns out that the automatic brightness control function works adequately and allows the user to customize his work for individual requirements. At any brightness level, there is no significant backlight modulation, so there is no screen flicker either.

This smartphone uses an IPS-type matrix. The micrographs show the typical IPS subpixel structure:

For comparison, you can see the gallery of micrographs of screens used in mobile technology.

The screen has good viewing angles without significant color shift, even with large gaze deviations from the perpendicular to the screen and without tint inversion. For comparison, here are some photos showing the same images on the screens of Redmi Note 8T and Nexus 7, while the brightness of the screens was initially set to about 200 cd / m², and the color balance on the camera was forced to 6500 K.

Note the good uniformity of brightness and color tone of the white field.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 8/8T review

The colors on the screen of the Redmi Note 8T have a slightly higher saturation than natural, the color balance of the Nexus 7 and the tested screen is different. The photo was taken in the case of the Auto profile in the screen settings:

In the case of the Saturated profile, there are no noticeable differences from the Auto profile, and when the Standard profile is selected, the color saturation is slightly less and the color balance changes slightly:

Now at an angle of approximately 45 degrees to the plane and to the side of the screen:

It can be seen that the colors did not change much on both screens, but on the Redmi Note 8T the contrast decreased to a greater extent due to the strong highlighting of black.

The brightness at an angle at the screens decreased (at least 5 times, based on the difference in exposure), and decreased approximately the same. The black field is strongly lightened when deviated along the diagonal, but remains conditionally neutral gray. The photos below demonstrate this (the brightness of the white areas in the direction perpendicular to the plane of the screens is the same!):

When viewed from a perpendicular view, the uniformity of the black field is excellent:

The contrast (approximately in the center of the screen) is high. about 1160: 1. The response time for the transition black-white-black is 21.5 ms (10 ms on, 11.5 ms off). The transition between gray tones of 25% and 75% (based on the numerical value of the color) and back takes 38 ms in total. The gamma curve, plotted using 32 points at equal intervals in terms of the numerical value of the shade of gray, did not reveal a blockage in either the highlights or the shadows. The exponent of the approximating power function is 2.18, which is close to the standard value of 2.2. In this case, the real gamma curve slightly deviates from the power dependence:

This device has a dynamic adjustment of the backlight brightness with an unobvious dependence on time and on the nature of the displayed image. As a result, the obtained dependence of brightness on the hue (gamma curve) may not correspond to the gamma curve of a static image, since the measurements were carried out with sequential output of gray shades on almost the entire screen. For this reason, a number of tests. determining the contrast and response time, comparing the black illumination at angles. we carried out (however, as always) when displaying special templates with a constant average brightness, and not single-color fields across the entire screen. In general, such a non-switchable brightness correction does nothing but harm, since a constant change in screen brightness can at least cause some discomfort.

The color gamut in the case of the Auto profile is slightly wider than sRGB:

When you select a profile, Standard coverage is compressed to the sRGB borders:

The spectra show (Auto profile) that the matrix filters moderately mix the components together:

At the same time, the humps of green and red are relatively well separated, which leads to some broadening of the color gamut.

By default, the color temperature is high, about 8500 K. However, in this device, when the Auto profile is selected, it is possible to correct the color balance by adjusting the hue by a dot on the color wheel or by choosing preset options. In addition, the correction is performed automatically when the Standard profile is selected.

The result in the latter case is good (see graphs below), since the color temperature becomes close to the standard 6500 K, and the deviation from Spectra of absolute black body (ΔE) on most of the gray scale is below 10, which is considered a good indicator for a consumer device. At the same time, the color temperature and ΔE vary little from shade to shade. this has a positive effect on the visual assessment of the color balance. (The darkest areas of the gray scale can be ignored, since the color balance there is not very important, and the error in measuring color characteristics at low brightness is large.)

In the settings, you can reduce the intensity of the blue component:

In principle, bright light can disrupt the circadian rhythm (see the article about the iPad Pro with a 9.7-inch display), but everything is solved by adjusting the brightness to a comfortable level, and there is absolutely no distortion of the color balance, reducing the contribution of blue meaning.

To summarize: the screen has a very high maximum brightness (630 cd / m²) and has excellent anti-glare properties, so the device can be used outdoors without any problems even on a sunny summer day. In complete darkness, the brightness can be lowered to a comfortable level (down to 1 cd / m²). It is also acceptable to use the mode with automatic brightness adjustment, which works adequately. The advantages of the screen include the presence of an effective oleophobic coating, no air gap in the layers of the screen and no visible flicker, high contrast and excellent uniformity of the black field, as well as close to sRGB color gamut and good color balance (after choosing the desired profile). The disadvantages are low stability of black to deviation of the gaze from the perpendicular to the plane of the screen. Taking into account the importance of characteristics for this particular class of devices, the screen quality can be considered high.

ИДЕАЛЬНЫЙ XIAOMI REDMI NOTE 8T �� Samsung, ПРЕКРАЩАЙ �� Huawei гребет бабло

Over the past year, Xiaomi, as usual, has released a large number of various smartphones, confused users with renaming and repositioning the lines and promised to revise the pricing policy for its top-end devices, which was not slow to affect the Mi Note 10 Pro, which appeared in the official Russian retail for unprecedented Xiaomi 45 thousand rubles, and later on the flagship Mi 10.

But still, no matter how the manufacturer tries to turn the tide, in the minds of millions of users, Xiaomi products are strongly associated with an affordable price. And it’s good that this is still true: Redmi Note 8T is just one of the very affordable smartphones, the price of which, moreover, has managed to drop noticeably in a few months. What this inexpensive mobile device with five cameras and NFC support is capable of, we will consider in this review.

Review of inexpensive smartphone Redmi Note 8T

Appearance and usability

Redmi Note 8T has not received an expensive design, this smartphone with a very simple body geometry, a plastic side frame and completely flat front and back panels looks exactly for its money, does not look more expensive than its level.

In the hand, a smartphone, even with such a chubby and rustic body weighing 200 grams, would be well held due to the wide side edges, which, thank God, did not narrow down here. However, the smartphone still turned out to be very slippery, because the plastic of the side frame is smooth and glossy. Why there is gloss is completely incomprehensible. The sides had to be made matte, non-marking and non-slip.

The block of four cameras at the back sticks out noticeably beyond the surface, so the smartphone does not lie stable on the table. The fingerprint scanner is located here, on the back, there are no complaints about it.

The front camera is hidden in a waterdrop-shaped notch in the screen. It takes up very little space, but there are users who are unnerved by even such a small cutout. But the fact that the device does not have a light indicator for notifications is a huge disadvantage. Especially considering the IPS screen.

The side buttons do not differ tactilely, but are well located on one sidewall, have a pleasant springy travel, there are generally no complaints about them.

The design flaws are partially compensated for by a three-slot tray, in which you can simultaneously put two Nano-SIM cards and a microSD memory card. Hot swappable cards supported.


At the bottom there is a speaker, microphone, USB Type-C connector and 3.5 mm audio output for headphones.

At the top there is an additional microphone and an IR transmitter. Among the preinstalled programs there is a Mi remote control for emulating the remote control.

Redmi Note 8T comes in three colors: white, blue and black (Moonlight White, Starscape Blue, Moonshadow Gray). The smartphone case did not receive full protection from dust and moisture.


Redmi Note 8T. the owner of the so-called “quad camera”, as it is now customary to call smartphones with four rear modules. However, two modules (with the same characteristics. 2 Mp, 1 / 5.0 ″, 1.75 μm, f / 2.4) are used only for measuring the depth of the scene and macro photography, so, in fact, there are only two main working modules. main and wide-angle, without telephoto.

The settings include manual, auto-HDR, panoramic, portrait, night, and slo-mo. There is no native ability to save images in RAW, but you can use third-party programs for this.

The main camera has a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 module (1 / 2.0 ″, 0.8 μm) and an f / 1.8 lens with a 79.4 ° field of view. There is PDAF phase detection autofocus, but no optical stabilization. By default, the camera shoots at a resolution of 12 megapixels with binning function (intelligent combining of 4 pixels in 1), and the maximum resolution mode of 48 megapixels is very convenient to turn on directly from the mode carousel without having to go into settings. We now see smartphones with 48-megapixel cameras very often, experience has been accumulated, and I must say that Redmi Note 8T is not the worst among its classmates. Small details in 48-megapixel photographs cannot be seen, they always turn out to be blurry, a little fuzzy. And a direct comparison with 12 Mp shots shows that 48 Mp shots lack more detail. Accordingly, there is no reason to shoot in this resolution, as it only “makes the picture heavier”.

All the pros and cons of a photo taken with a camera

The Xiaomi Redmi note 8T smartphone is not the latest model, but it doesn’t matter to me, the main thing is that the smartphone suits me, I’m not chasing new products.

OS Android 9.0, screen: 6.3 “, IPS, 2340 × 1080, processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 665, 2000 MHz, 8-core, FM radio, GPS, GLONASS, talk time, up to: 21 hours, in standby mode, up to: 251h, case included, RAM: 4GB, built-in memory: 128GB

The flagship provides the user with uninterrupted communication, Internet connection. It can be used for contactless payment instead of a navigator and control all appliances in the house. This is possible due to the large number of interfaces:

  • IrDA.
  • GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou.
  • Bluetooth.
  • Wi-Fi.
  • NFC.
  • 2G, 3G, LTE.
  • Big screen
  • Good camera
  • Dual SIM
  • NFS
  • Convenient charging socket
  • Durable charger
  • Handsome in appearance
  • Robust case

The smartphone is large enough, for me this is a plus, although many call such large smartphones a “shovel”, on the contrary, I like it.

The kit included a charger, a needle and a case. Regular cover, black, silicone.

The smartphone itself is beautiful in color, on the front side the frame is black, on the back side the color is very beautiful, iridescent and 4 cameras.

“in its own” case, the smartphone does not look as attractive as without.

In principle, I don’t have many requirements for a smartphone, I wanted a more or less good camera, NFS, 2 SIM cards, and a strong battery. Before that, I used Honor 8X, they even look similar, but Honor 8x simply had no camera, although otherwise I was completely satisfied.

Xiaomi Redmi note 8T has a million times better camera, and it doesn’t even compare.

  • Slow motion
  • Video
  • Portrait photography
  • Panorama
  • Night shooting

I’m happy with the camera, given that the smartphone is relatively inexpensive. For example, I am attaching photos taken with the camera (of course, without color correction and filters)

  • Day Shooting Mode
  • Shooting in motion through glass

The ultra-wide-angle lens has 8 MP, and the additional ones have 2 MP each. They are used for macro photography, measuring the depth of the frame. The photos are of high quality, they can be compared with the frames obtained with a professional camera. Due to the powerful LED flash, the photos are high quality even at night. The built-in artificial intelligence system adapts to any shooting conditions. It allows you to choose one of the ready-made scenarios. Videos are shot in 4K format. They are smooth and accurate, which is ensured by electronic stabilization.

The front camera has 13 megapixels and HDR mode. She takes beautiful, vivid selfies and is used for face unlocking.

Xiaomi Redmi note 8T is quite heavy, and really at first the hand got tired of holding the smartphone. But after a while you stop attaching strong importance to it and you get used to it.

The smartphone supports two SIM-cards, which is very convenient, as well as NFS, which has also become a necessary and convenient function.

With regards to the battery, the charging is enough for almost the whole day (from early morning until evening). if you use only messengers and calls on your smartphone, then it is enough for almost two days.

And yet, when I was buying a smartphone, I was in a hurry, and ran into the first cell phone salon that I came across, there was not a great choice, and Xiaomi Redmi note 8T was presented in only two colors, so I took this one. And so, Xiaomi Redmi note 8T is simply in amazing colors


The RN8T display is manufactured using an LTPS matrix. It lacks the standard IPS flaw (displaying dark gray instead of black), but otherwise it is no different from it. The display provides excellent color reproduction, and the brightness of 596 nits is enough for working in direct sunlight even without a special anti-reflective layer.

FHD resolution allows you to see the clearest picture, but it uses up the battery faster. The matrix is ​​covered with 5th generation hardened Corning Gorilla Glass, which successfully resists scratches and can withstand drops from a height of 1.6 meters. The protective glass has a high-quality oleophobic coating to prevent fingerprints.

For the performance of the RN8T, the eight-core Snapdragon 665 chip from Qualcomm, made according to the 11 nanometer process technology, is responsible. Operating frequencies vary depending on the complexity of the tasks: from 1.8 to 2.0 GHz. A Qualcomm Adreno 610 coprocessor is working on the graphics, so the smartphone has no problems with running modern mobile games.

It uses LPDDR4X RAM modules, which are quite productive and energy efficient. The amount of preinstalled RAM depends on the modification of the smartphone: versions with 3 or 4 GB of RAM are available for sale.

The Redmi Note 8T uses an internal storage type eMMC 5.1. It is significantly slower than UFS, but still several times faster than the fastest memory card. The storage capacity of the smartphone varies from 32 to 128 GB. It is better to purchase a more advanced version, since there is never too much space.

Characteristics Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T smartphone is codenamed Willow. Release date. November 8, 2019.

Modification of the original Redmi 8 phone from Xiaomi. The model resembles Redmi Note 8, but differs in the presence of NFC and some other chips. And the appearance is almost the same and the back panel shimmers with all the colors of the rainbow. In terms of size and weight, it hardly differs from —— “classic” version of RN8.

The RN8T cameras provide great images both day and night, pulling in all the available light. The display has increased brightness and demonstrates high-quality color reproduction. The performance of the hardware platform is sufficient to run the most modern mobile games with maximum graphics settings.

The phone enjoys stable popularity as it looks much more attractive than similar products from competitors in the same price segment. The price is one of the indisputable advantages of this model, which has 3 or 4 GB of RAM.
