As usual, Xiaomi continues to make groundbreaking smartphones with super-amazing features. The Mi 8 carries forward the legacy of the Chinese brand in the field of flagship smartphones. Be it the camera, display or performance, this big smartphone excels in every department. However, a slightly better battery would have made it the perfect choice to go for at this price.

Display and Build
The Xiaomi Mi 8 has a big 6.21-inch display that has a stunning aspect ratio of 18.7:9. Plus, the smartphone is close to being complete bezel-less as there is just a thin strip of a notch on the lower end and in the front camera portion.
The screen has a resolution of 1,080 x 2,248 pixels (full HD plus) and a stunning pixel density of 402 PPI. Apart from this, the fact that it has an AMOLED type display makes the viewing experience even better.
Configuration and Camera
The Xiaomi Mi 8 has a very powerful processor under the hood, which comes in the form of two Kryo 385 quad-core processors with 2.8GHz and 1.8GHz clock speed. The processors are assisted by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset and an awesome 6GB RAM. To handle the graphics, there is an Adreno 630 GPU.
The dual primary camera setup (12MP+12MP) has amazing sensors like Exmor-RS CMOS, Phase Detection autofocus, Optical Image Stabilisation and 1.8f aperture. Such a brilliant setup gives excellent quality images and videos on the output. The 20MP front-facing camera also appears to be a best-in-class feature.
Battery, Storage and Connectivity
Of course, with such an amazing set of features, anyone would expect the battery to offer a big back up. The 3,400mAh Li-polymer battery manages to provide the same, though the big screen requires a bigger number at that column. It supports quick-charging so that you can refill the battery at lightning fast speed. However, the 64GB storage is ample for the users, though an expandable memory slot could have given some extra benefits.
As for connectivity, there are dual SIM slots, 4G with VoLTE, advanced Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, Near Field Connectivity and a type-C slot.
