In my opinion, the specs and features you get in this phone at that price point are amazing. it does have some cons, like the bezel of the phone isn’t flattering while viewing fullscreen videos. Likewise, the gaming experience isn’t that smooth. You can play high-end games both may find a little stutter while playing. The picture and video capturing are above average. but for a phone in this budget, you really can’t complain.
Overall, Redmi Note 8 is a value for money. You get everything you could in this price range.
