Redmi Note 8 gets its power from the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor paired with 4GB or 6GB of RAM. The Snapdragon 665 is a mid-range processor but is quite decent. It can handle a lot of applications in one go, though it is not suitable for intensive activities. You can play games on this phone too but High presets can make frame rates drop. The phone does get a bit warmer during intensive work processes but not to an unnatural degree.

The camera stack looks brilliant on this handset too. In daylight, the pictures turn out to be quite decent. There is a little grain present in the images, but it can be ignored. However, when you are using it at night, the phone may end up producing poor shots which are dark and a bit grainy. However, you can still manage to pass them off as decent shots. The 48MP camera is a selling point for this phone, and it keeps it decent and attractive. On the front, you have a 13MP selfie camera which can keep the selfies quite decent.
The Redmi Note 8 gets its power from the 4,000mAh non-removable battery. It is a standard battery, and this size could be found in most handsets nowadays. It can easily keep the phone chugging for a whole day with light to moderate use. The phone also has fast-charging tech, which makes it pretty reliable.
The Redmi Note 8 is a great-looking phone with the primary USP being the 48MP camera. The camera shots are quite colourful and decent. However, the phone also keeps itself top-notch with its decent battery and brilliant performance. Overall, it is a capable phone and worth considering, if you are looking for a low mid-range reliable handset.
