Hello all!

Mi 8 is Xiaomi’s 2018 Flagship device and reportedly, a perfect combination of aesthetics, ergonomics and groundbreaking technologies. Compared to its predecessor, we see huge upgrades such as larger camera pixels, uses flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, a larger screen-to-body ratio from Mi 6’s 71% to 86% etc. Mi 8 is also the first smartphone in the world to adopt the dual-frequency GPS. This means that the device supports the use of both Level 1 and a Level 5 frequency, making it the perfect device for heavy navigation users. The camera has also outdone many other cameras, receiving a 105 photo score from the camera benchmark organization DxOMark. Mi 8 has proven, on paper, to be an exceptional device. But how does it actually fair when it comes to user experience? Now, let’s dive right into step 1 of unpacking the phone: The Unboxing of the Mi 8!
