It seems that Xiaomi has completed its Mi 8 line up with the release of Mi8 lite. Xiaomi now has two leading models in the Mi8 family which are the Mi8 and the Mi8 Explorer Edition. It also has two other mid-range models the Mi 8 SE and Mi8 Lite. Today we are going to review Mi 8 by xiaomi.
Xiaomi has again made a tempting attempt by releasing another phone under the label of famous Mi 8 series. This release can confuse Xiaomi’s customers and head them towards buying a phone with the uninspiring specification. As in past few years, we came across fairly handful smartphones by Xiaomi which were not very impressive.
There is not the case with Mi 8 Lite as it comes with a very reasonable price as compared to its market rivals. With such a fair amount, it has efficient and skilful hardware, and its pattern is entirely different from its expensive siblings.

To present this phone with its price tag, Xiaomi had to minus a few attractions but, on the other hand, this phone possessed many worth buying features. One of such function is the large and taller display of the phone and considering the smaller notch, real estate of the screen should be kept in mind. Apart from this if you want a powerful mid-range Soc and you happen to be a fan of Xiaomi’s MIUI, this phone is the best option for you.
UnBoxing of the Phone
The phone gives you a great treat of essentials only, as can be expected by its price range. The box doesn’t have headphones. Since the phone lacks an audio jack, Xiaomi has included a USB -C to 3.5 mm adapter in case you already have a pair of buds or cans.
This phone also supports quick charge 3.0 v. USB-a to USB -c cable supporting 5V/2A is also included. This means a QC 3.0 compliant charger required for maximum efficiency of the battery.
