Pros & Cons

Expert Score
Good things
The Mi 8 has an attractive design and an AMOLED screen with DCI-P3 as well as HDR10 compatibility. It has a fast processor, great front and rear cameras, and long battery life. There's 4K video recording at 60fps. Extras such as IR face unlock and Quick Charge 4.0+ make the Mi 8 an even more attractive option.
Bad things
4K video recording could've had better stabilisation and USB Type-C port could've had faster speed. There's no microSD card slot or a 3.5mm headphone jack. Its predecessor, the Mi 6 had an IP rating and stereo speakers, both of which Xiaomi removed from the Mi 8 for some reason.

Is it better than OnePlus 6 mobile?
Answer by bimalrajsubedi, 7 months ago
It depends. In the camera, face ID, and transparency, Mi 8 is above OnePlus 6. But in performance, OnePlus 6 is little ahead of Mi 8 although both have the same chipset and GPU. Also, Mi 8 is cheaper than OnePlus 6. So, it is wise to go with Mi 8.
Answer by nishudeep67, 7 months ago
If it launches cheaper than OnePlus 6, then yeah, it is better than OnePlus 6.

Is it upgradeable to upcoming Android version OS?
Answer by bimalrajsubedi, 7 months ago
Typically, yes, because Xiaomi updates security and Android version upgrade from time to time. But, please be aware that it is not a stock Android or Android One.
Does the charger of this mobile come with a round or flat pin socket?
Answer by bimalrajsubedi, 7 months ago
It comes with USB-C charger, which is an oval type socket and you don't have to worry about which part is up or down, as, in both ways, you are good to go.
Is this mobile scratch and waterproof?
Answer by bimalrajsubedi, 7 months ago
It has scratch resistant Corning Gorilla Glass. It survived tap water in some videos, but officially Mi 8 isn't publicised as waterproof, or it has no IP rating.
