The Xiaomi Mi 8 is the best iPhone X-like Android phone yet


The new Android phone has a Face ID-like feature and gesture controls. Sound familiar? You betcha.

Xiaomi Mi 8 review: Big bang for your buck


This Chinese phone brand's flagship offers affordable power - but there are compromises. Here's whether this Xiaomi should be on your shopping list.

Good value for money ; Plenty of power ; Great design

MIUI software needs refinement ; Low-light shooting not the best ; Battery life could be better

There's a lot that the Mi 8 does right for its asking price. While there are compromises, the experience is positive overall. It's only really the more established competition from OnePlus that poses much of an issue.

Xiaomi Mi 8 Review


We review this wallet friendly premium smartphone with a standard wide-angle camera, 2x telephoto camera, and a fast SnapDragon processor.

The Xiaomi Mi 8 has a number of flagship features, including an impressively fast SnapDragon 845 processor, yet the smartphone has a price tag that is roughly half the price of many other flagship smartphones!
