This is the functionality test of the Mi 8. My phone usage is generally not so intense, I don’t play games. Here are a few points I gathered about the functionality of the phone.|

Firstly, battery life isn’t very long when you are constantly taking photos & videos. I didn’t fully charge it but the batter fell pretty quickly in my opinion if you are taking a lot of photos! I put it on airplane mode because on the way home, I didn’t want the battery to die out.
Secondly, I not sure if its psychological or theoretical but the phone does feel a lot faster and responsive compared to my other xiaomi phone. Apps closes faster, Apps open faster. Internet loads speeds depends on how fast your internet is. I’m sure its because of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset.
Third, I feel that the dual gps is not really a must-have feature for me. I feel that the camera features is more important. I saw the xiaomi advertisement video for the Mi 8, the car windows all covered with black – but how is this relevant to me? Not to say bad about it, but I really think the dual gps frequency is not really a highlight. The highlight of the phone is the good camera quality and the fast chipset!
Lastly, I have only been using this phone for slightly less than a week. Everything about it seems good so far. As per normal, sensitivity of the fingerprint scanner is extremely fast. Facial recognition is fast too, although it occasionally asks me to open my eyes wider. Speaker quality is alright – I can hear everything loud and clear. I usually use Bluetooth headphones so the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack doesn’t bother me. I think at this point of time its difficult for me to comment too much on it given how little time I have tried this phone. I believe only time will tell if this is a worthy phone to buy or not, and whether it can stand the test against my usage (and time)!
