Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite Smartphone Review


Simply good. Xiaomi's smartphone with the global ROM has finally come to the European market. The Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite is a good and high-quality smartphone that does not burn a hole in your pocket. Read our review to find out what you can expect from this...

good system performance ; very good cameras ; Bluetooth 5.0 ; a lot of storage space

average battery life ; no 3.5-mm headphone jack ; settings are partially restricted via always-online requirements and Mi account ; no NFC ; only supports L3 DRM

Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite review: Lite, but not a lightweight


It carries the "Lite" label, but that doesn't mean it isn't a capable device.

Solid performance from the Snapdragon 660 ; Great rear- and front-facing cameras ; Interesting camera software tricks ; Long-lasting battery

No headphone jack ; QC-compatible charger not supplied ; Fixed focus on the front-facing camera (a shame since it has a 24MP sensor) ; Cameras lack dynamic range

Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite review: Stunning value | Trusted Reviews


Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite Review: The Mi 8 Lite surprises with its premium design, solid performance and surprisingly capable cameras.

Superb value ; Dense, high-end feel ; Powerful ; Solid, responsive cameras

No app drawer option ; No theme store access in the UK/EU

We're only just into 2019, but the Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite might be one of the best buys under £250.

Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite review (hands on): The Moto G6 killer?


A low price matched with impressive core features, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite is a strong contender for the Moto G6's crown

We know it will be faster than the Moto. The big questions are whether the camera is any good and how long the battery will last in everyday use. If it can match or beat the G6 on both counts – and the latter shouldn’t be too hard to do – we’ll have a...
