Redmi Note 8 Pro Review: World First 64MP Cameras Mid-Range Phone


Redmi Note 8 Pro is still familiar to me: excellent design in the same price, full-featured hardware, good camera strength, coupled with a staggering price/performance ratio, you What kind of bicycle do you want?

After the independent operation of the Redmi brand, it has emphasized and highlighted the “price-performance ratio”, “national mobile phone” and “good quality” labels. It seems that there are some ordinary propaganda points, but they have firmly grasped the third- and fourth-tier cities. , the middle-aged, pragmatic users and other major user groups. This time, Redmi Note 8 Pro continues this principle. What users need, I will give them what, the strategy is very clear.

Design & Appearance

Redmi Note 8 Pro does not use some “fancy” designs such as lifting, digging, etc., but chooses a very mature full-screen screen of water droplets. Lu Weibing said that this is based on user research. Taking into account the life of the lifting lens, the mechanical structure taking up space, etc., the Redmi Note 8 Pro uses a 6.53-inch 19.5:9 water-drop screen, and the COF process’s holding screen makes the ratio as high as 91.4%.

According to Redmi, this screen has also passed the TUV Rheinland low-light eye protection certification, support eye protection mode 2.0, and the color temperature adjustment level is upgraded from 32 to 256. In terms of details, redmi still has a lot of effort. The thickness of the screen left and right and lower borders are 2.05mm, 1.8mm, and 4.2mm. With rounded curved glass, the feel and visual perception are good.

This time in terms of value, redmi has done a lot of work. The symmetrical aesthetic design runs through the fuselage and is well received by obsessive-compulsive patients The chin part of the fuselage has a certain degree of narrowing, but it has little effect on daily use. Harmony symmetrical design, in the same price segment model, Redmi Note 8 Pro can be described as excellent in terms of color value.

If the front of the smartphone is now occupied by the screen, then the back of the phone becomes a perfect “canvas” that can be used for inspiration. Redmi Note 8 Pro has three colors of ice jade, mother-of-pearl, and electro-optical gray. We haven’t talked about the process. From the perspective of finished products, the value of this mother-of-pearl in our hands has won many colleagues. Recognition.

This color, which is between white and color, is not very easy to describe in words. Unlike the usual gradients, the white color of the Redmi Note 8 Pro is more like a white pigment with pearl powder. It looks unremarkable, but it can emit a different kind of light under the light, similar to “a colorful white.” The rear uses four shots, and the red meter cleverly places the fingerprint recognition area under the camera, and the position and feel are not bad. The only minor problem is that when the finger is unlocked, it sometimes accidentally presses the lens, so you need to pay attention.

The full screen of water droplets, 3D four-curved glass, narrow borders, and good color matching, together, continue to provide sufficient capital for the “smashing” of the Redmi series in the same price segment. For the user, I don’t care if the border is a few tenths of a millimeter wide, and I don’t care what advanced sanding process is used on the back, as long as the whole machine looks harmonious, beautiful, and feels good enough. From these perspectives, Redmi Note 8 Pro is doing very well.


In addition to the face value, Redmi Note 8 Pro has also made a lot of effort in the game. This MediaTek Helio G90T professional game processor is a gift from Redmi to users. In this price range, it is rare to be able to carry a CPU developed professionally for games. Want to be cheap and want the game to be smooth, Redmi said no problem.

In order to achieve a better game experience, MediaTek has carried out special optimization development for performance, network, and touch. The G90T uses a combination of Cortex-A76 and Cortex-A55 with a frequency of 2.05 GHz. The GPU is powered by the ARM Mali – G76 MP4 with a clock speed of up to 800MHz. The processor can provide up to 1TMACs of AI power. Having said so many parameters, let me see how the actual running scores are.

Judging from the running scores of Antutu, Redmi Note 8 Pro scored 284,835 with a CPU score of 97,500 and a GPU score of 81,510, which is a medium-to-high level. In theory, it should be no problem to deal with large games. To this end, we used the mainstream game frame rate test software Gamebench to test, the game selected is “running kart”.

From the test results of Gamebench, Redmi Note 8 Pro maintains a frame rate of around 60 in the game. Even in the face of large 3D map scenes, there is no case of jamming or dropping frames. The picture is clear enough and smooth, and the hand is not bad. In order to achieve a better game experience, Redmi Note 8 Pro uses MediaTek HyperEngine and MI Game Turbo 2.0 dual-engine optimization. The game scene perception function can be analyzed according to the needs of the game scene, and the CPU/GPU frequency and the game frame rate are intelligently adjusted.

Not only that, but the Redmi Note 8 Pro also features an X-antenna design that ensures Wi-Fi signal strength regardless of the grip position used, and no network stagnation occurs during the game. If you feel that the screen is not comfortable, you can also purchase a custom version of the black shark gamepad. Redmi is also very hard to make users get better game experience.

Not only that, but Redmi Note 8 Pro also has a large 4500mAh battery, support 18W fast charge to support Qualcomm QC4+, MTK PE, and USB-PD and other protocols. In order to keep the phone cool all the time, Redmi Note 8 Pro also uses liquid cooling. The 3mm diameter heat pipe is liquid-cooled, and the power management chip has a larger heat dissipation area and better effect while covering the processor. A few games down, the heat control is good, will not become a “hot potato.”


Another heavy ring on Redmi Note 8 Pro is the flagship sensor GW1 that was jointly launched with Samsung. 64MP ultra-high pixels with a resolution of up to 9248×6936. In addition, the photosensitive area is up to 1/1.7 inch, which is one of the largest photosensitive elements on the market. Higher pixel and resolution also means greater post-creation space.

In the face of large scenes, Redmi Note 8 Pro automatically recognizes and suggests to turn on super wide-angle mode. This 8-megapixel wide-angle lens can help you accommodate a wider picture, even if you are facing a high-rise CBD. Sometimes looking up at the sky, you may find a different view from another angle. In the super wide-angle mode, the picture is more tension, not only the details are richer, but also the overall look and feel are better.

In low-light indoor environments, Redmi Note 8 Pro uses ISOCELL Plus technology to reduce light interference between pixels, reduce light loss, and improve color reproduction. In addition, this GW1 lens also supports DCG technology, which can intelligently adjust the ISO sensitivity according to the ambient light intensity to make the picture clearer.

Next, let’s take a look at the skill of 64 Megapixels. As can be seen from this picture, with super-resolution, even if the signboard in the distance is magnified several times, the font is still clearly visible. According to Redmi, the GW1 sensor is 34% higher than the 48MP product in both resolution and sensor area.

Want to know the flight model number of your flight? Don’t worry, open the Redmi Note 8 Pro’s 64MP HD shots, and zoom in and out of your eyes. This kind of anti-theft resolution can basically be used as a zoom. The ultra-high-resolution undoubtedly provides more space for users to re-create later.

In addition, a macro shot of 2cm distance can capture small details that are usually ignored. See the micro-knowledge, let you fully appreciate what is the beauty of the details. The Redmi Note 8 Pro is equipped with a 20-megapixel beauty camera with AI beauty algorithm to show your beauty more naturally. After the portrait mode, you can simulate the background blur effect of the SLR large aperture, so that everyone’s attention will always stay on you.

Finally, let’s take a look at the night scene. Nowadays, it is very common to have a night scene mode for mobile phone photographs, and most of them is to increase the brightness of the screen and increase the details of the dark part by long exposure and multi-frame synthesis. From the proofs, the screen brightness of the Redmi Note 8 Pro is excellent, and the noise control is also very good. In fact, in the actual scene, the picture is darker and the brightness is very low.

In addition, Redmi Note 8 Pro follows the principle of “natural” in scenes with large contrasts. Do not blindly pursue the picture as bright as white, but let the light and dark contrast natural harmony, how do you feel about this night scene?

As a mid-range model, the mission of Redmi Note 8 Pro is: I want everything you want. Fullscreen of water droplets, 64MP lenses, game chips, liquid cooling optimization, 3.5mm headphone jack, infrared remote control… As far as configuration is concerned, we can’t really ask for more Redmi Note 8 Pro. As a mobile phone for users, Redmi seems to have been able to read the user’s heart and tap into their innermost needs. This has never changed.
