The Xiaomi Mi 8 is a flagship you might not have heard of, but that should change, as this has the specs to compete with any other phone out there and comes in at a much lower price than most high-end handsets.

There are a lot of highlights to the Xiaomi Mi 8, with the most obvious perhaps being its big 6.21-inch screen. It uses Super AMOLED, just like flagships from Samsung and Apple, meaning colours are rich and contrast is strong. It’s also sharp at 1080 x 2248 and takes up almost the entire front of the phone, other than a notch at the top.

The Xiaomi Mi 8 also has top-end power, thanks to an octa-core Snapdragon 845 chipset and a massive 6GB of RAM, a combination which matches or beats just about every other phone available.

The cameras are a real highlight too. This phone has a 12MP dual-lens camera on the back, with both telephoto and wide-angle lenses, making this suited to most scene types. You should be able to get some great shots too, as it uses AI to adjust the settings for what you’re shooting and optical image stabilization to keep subjects in focus. There are plenty of shooting modes too, plus 2x optical zoom and the ability to shoot 4K video.

And Xiaomi hasn’t skimped on the front-facing camera, as for that you get a 20MP lens with an AI-powered portrait mode and various beautifying tools.

The Xiaomi Mi 8 also has a striking design, thanks to a curvy glass body and a tough 7000 series aluminium frame.

Other highlights of the Mi 8 include both facial recognition and a fingerprint scanner, dual-frequency GPS for more accurate navigation than other phones offer, a 3,400mAh battery and 64 or 128GB of storage. So there’s a lot to like, and all at an even more likeable price.
