Recently, Xiaomi has launched its new Redmi Note 8 device. We get it that the brand wants to bring dozens of options in the same range but balancing it is tough.

Keeping that in mind, is it a worthy buy at this price point? Let’s check out in the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 review below:
The Redmi Note 8 is just an affordable model of the new Note 8 Pro. It is not a much affordable model though. On the front, this phone looks like the Redmi 8 and Redmi 8A. There is a thick chain on the bottom packing the brand logo. It is a 6.3-inch screen with a water-drop notch at the top. The device is available in three color variants: Neptune Blue, Moonlight White, and Space Black.
The rear of this phone is packing a camera strip in one corner. The back and front of the device are protected with Gorilla Glass 5. The back looks glossy and is having a gradient finish. Although, it is very difficult to keep smudges and fingerprints away from its back. You can get a Great Discount and Deals on Electronic items online using Gonoise Coupons.

The Redmi Note 8 base variant fares against the competition at Rs. 9,999. But, what about the higher variant? The company has played smartly with its RAM and screen resolution. Yes, you get Realme 5 or Vivo U10 for less but you won’t get the same RAM configuration.
