Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro Review | Trusted Reviews

 

Xiaomi's Mi 8 Pro makes a splash in the UK with flagship hardware, an eye-catching transparent-backed glass body and a sub-£500 price.

Customisable software ; Eye-catching design ; Excellent camera ; Nice screen

Poorly optimised performance ; Underwhelming battery life ; No wireless charging ; Big notch

Look past the fact that the brand is still an unknown quantity in markets like the UK and the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro packs an undeniable punch.

Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro review: a confident debut in the UK for Xiaomi

 

Top-level specs and a winning camera for not much money

Top-notch performance ; Very decent camera ; Solid design and build quality

No wireless charging ; No waterproofing ; Hit-and-miss software

Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro review: Xiaomi comes out fighting

 

Great design ; Flagship hardware power ; Smooth and stable software

Camera not the best ; No 3.5mm headphone socket ; MIUI adds bloat and advertising ; Speaker performance is weak

While there are some flagship measures against which the Mi 8 Pro won't stand - it's launching into a competitive space and Xiaomi's challenge is to convince you to buy its hardware over a OnePlus or Huawei - it delivers power and performance, combined...

Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro review

 

Xiaomi goes for Pro - and largely pulls it off

Notch and in-display fingerprint sensor are peak 2018 ; Top-end internal hardware and super-quick performance ; See-through rear glass is next-level cool

A few missing features that would have made it truly ace ; Android skin not as slick as others

There's so much to like about the Mi 8 Pro: a capable camera, stand-out design and cutting-edge tech

Hands on: Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro review

 

There's a new affordable flagship in town

In-display fingerprint scanner ; Cool transparent look

Design not as premium as rivals ; Camera isn't the strongest

The Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro has great features for its price point, but the main hurdle for it is the OnePlus 6T which seems to beat it in a few areas. However, for those looking for an affordable flagship that's a little different to the norm, the Mi 8 Pro is...

Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro review: Watch out OnePlus

 

Xiaomi arrives in the UK with a bang – its Mi 8 Pro is nearly as good as the OnePlus 6T and matches it on price

Great looks ; Flagship processor ; Same price as a OnePlus 6T

No microSD expansion ; Lacks water resistance ; MIUI is ugly

The camera isn't quite as good for image quality as the OnePlus 6T's but, on the flipside, you get proper 2X optical zoom where the OnePlus' second camera is limited to depth-mapping, portrait creation duties. And if you like your smartphone to look...

Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro review: More competition in the affordable flagship sector Review | ZDNet

 

The Mi 8 Pro is a competent flagship-class smartphone at a good price, although a few compromises have been made in pursuit of affordability.

Transparent back with view of internal circuitry ; Plenty of internal storage ; Dual SIM ; Good performance ; In-screen fingerprint reader

Battery life could be better ; Poor speaker ; No IP rating for dust/water resistance

Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro review: Pro ambitions, amateur mistakes

 

The Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro is packed with all the things that we liked about the Mi 8, but aside from a stylish transparent glass finish and a minor RAM bump, it doesn't really earn its "Pro" moniker. Yet, if you can look past the unreliable in-display...

Eye-catching transparent design ; Impressive camera ; High value for money

MIUI 10 is a mixed bag ; Awful in-display fingerprint sensor ; Poor battery life
