The ultimate 2021 Review of Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T 64GB
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T 64GB is a not very recent model, having been launched at the end of 2019.
The overall quality of this smartphone is good; since it is very affordable, it is definitely a good choice.
Main test results
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T 64GB has 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, already tested. In comparison this version has a faster processor.
The 6.3″ 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.
The Xiaomi REDMI NOTE 8T 64GB battery is standard: in our usage scenario, its 4000 mAh allow it to reach 32 hours, which is on average.
The 45.7 GB of actual available internal memory (64 GB 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.
Like most models in this price range, this phone is very powerful, so 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 at the same time) and the presence of the fingerprint reader.
This model is compatible with 4G connection.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T 64GB has four rear cameras (the main one is 48 Mp) which allow you to get just enough quality photos.
This mobile phone has a 13 Mp front camera, which allows you to take poor quality photos, so it is not possible to get good selfies.

- It is one of the most affordable models
- The version of the operating system is quite recent
- Its performances are above the average
- You can insert two SIMs at the same time
