    Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T review

     50     

    The Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T is the European version of the popular Redmi Note 8 and the latest addition to the budget series.

    The Redmi Note lineup needs no presentation - it has always delivered good smartphones with sustained performance and long-lasting battery life on a bargain price. The Redmi Note 8T is an enhanced version of the Redmi Note 8, and we very much believe the 8T will repeat the Note 8 success.So, the Redmi Note 8T is a Note phone done by the book - it has a large 6.3 IPS LCD screen with a small notch, a promising Snapdragon 665 chip, some whooping camera count on the back, and a beefy 4,000 mAh battery within.Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T specsUnboxing the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T

    So, the Redmi Note 8T is a Note phone done by the book - it has a large 6.3 IPS LCD screen with a small notch, a promising Snapdragon 665 chip, some whooping camera count on the back, and a beefy 4,000 mAh battery within.Naturally, the Redmi Note 8T uses a dual Gorilla Glass 5 shell and its back is painted in some trending gradient colors - Starscape Blue and Moonlight White, but you can also opt for a more traditional Moonshadow Grey that is not as casual and is easy on the eyes.The Redmi Note 8T adds NFC option over the regular Note 8 and comes packed with an 18W fast charger (up from 10W). It runs on Android 9 with MIUI 10, and while MIUI 11 is coming at some point, it's not available just yet. Body: Gorilla Glass 5 front and back, plastic frame, splash-resistant nano-coating, 190g. Display: 6.3" IPS LCD, 1080 x 2340px resolution, 19.5:9 aspect ratio, 409ppi. Rear camera: Primary: 48MP, f/1.8 aperture, 1/2" sensor size, 0.8�m pixel size, PDAF. Ultra wide: 8MP, f/2.2, 1/4", 1.12�m pixels. Macro camera: 2MP, f/2.4, 1/5", 1.75�m Depth sensor:2MP; 2160p@30fps, 1080p@120fps, 720p@960fps video recording. Front camera: 13MP, f/2.0 aperture, 1.12�m pixels. 1080p/30fps video recording. OS: Android 9 Pie; MIUI 10. Chipset: Snapdragon 665 (11nm): Octa-core (4x2.00 GHz Kryo 260 Gold & 4x1.8 GHz Kryo 260 Silver), Adreno 610 GPU. Memory: 3/4/6GB of RAM; 32/64/128GB storage; dedicated microSD slot. Battery: 4,000mAh; 18W fast charging. Connectivity: Dual-SIM; LTE-A, 4-Band carrier aggregation, LTE Cat-12/ Cat-13; USB-C; Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac; dual-band GPS; Bluetooth 4.2; FM radio; NFC. Misc: Rear-mounted fingerprint reader; 3.5mm jack; single down-firing speaker.The Redmi Note 8T box contains the usual - the phone itself, a USB-C cable, and an 18W charger. This is a bit different from the Note 8 - it is bundled with a slower 10W adapter.There is also a semi-transparent silicone case in the box, which is appreciated. What's not on the Redmi Note 8T is a factory-applied screen protector. Maybe it will come with extra shielding in some markets. Maybe it won't.
