[Review] How happy are you with your Mi 8

I've been using Mi 8 for about 7 months now and has been a good companion. However I feel there is a lot of rough edges that could be better, not entirely happy with camera software neither with lack of proper software updates. Hardware wise Mi 8 is great but it lacks proper software support.

Hello,

What is missing from software side and why you are not happy with camera?

Regarding the camera it feels like its not optimized, no 60fps, limited slow motion options... regarding the software itself there's the problem with notifications not staying in left side of notch, cant even hide notch now. No widevine l1 support, Ok Google doesnt work, lack of AOD customization, the design of search app didnt took in consideration the MI 8 notch (theres no gap between notch and search bar, if you use a screen protector it might block 1px width).. global stable is very slow with releases and when there's a new update it's a very simple one. MI 8 has a lot of to offer and the software should push it's limits to make it an even better phone.

Seems the new global version released today (10.3.1) will fix the problem with notch and 4k 60fps recording. Just in time :)

Happy with it. Google camera app helps to take pictures with low light...
On the other hand, everything works flawlessly.

Yes, it is fixed, and the battery percentage is visible on Always On Display :-)
