Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro

11.12.2018
Oh, these backs…!

Summary

Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro can astonish, but is not free from flaws. Among them we can count the lack of waterproofness and wireless charging, the lack of minijack and the low quality of the adapter, lack of an FM radio and a wide notch, which prevents from displaying notifications icons. We can complain about the quality of panoramic photos and the work of the fingerprint scanner. The battery could have been bigger, and the absence of the memory cards’ socket can be bothersome as well.

But the rest… The rest is great. The phone takes good photos and videos, it has a good display and a great facial recognition system, and what is more – a high-class housing. The efficiency is great, just like ergonomics and interface. I am hesitant to say this, but the stylization of Mi 8 Pro is simply perfect.

You can ask, is it better to buy Mi 8 or Mi 8 Pro?

The price difference is not high. I can pay more for effective looks and a bells-and-whistle (though sometimes irritating) scanner without a hesitation. Who said that we cannot surround ourselves with pretty things…?
