Main test results
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro 64GB arrived on the market with Android 9, so there are no problems for safety and compatibility with apps and other devices.
This mobile phone is the new version of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 that we have previously tested. In comparison, the screen size is larger, the camera resolution is higher and the processor is faster.
The 6.5″ screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels looks better than that of other models and is also very quick to react to commands.
One of the strengths of Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro 64GB is its good battery life: in our usage scenario, its 4500 mAh allow it to reach 36 hours, which is above average.
The 64 GB of memory declared may be enough to store our data, if not we can use an SD memory card to expand the phone memory.
It suffered some minor damages in the drop test, but passed it well and can therefore be considered quite robust.
Models in this price range are usually powerful, and this phone is among the best: therefore, it can be used without problems even for tasks that require high performance, such as some video games.
Among the most interesting functions are: being dual SIM (two SIM, two numbers, can work simultaneously) and the presence of the fingerprint reader.
This model is compatible with 4G connection.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro 64GB has four rear cameras (the main one is 64 Mp) which allow you to get good quality photos, except in situations with little light where they are really poor.
