In the set with Mi 8 we get a transparent silicone case. It resembles the cheapest of possible models, it is a pity that Xiaomi decided not to attach better protection. On the plus side, it certainly does not turn yellow as fast as the cheapest transparent covers available on the internet. Xiaomi offers in its stores the opportunity to purchase a much better model and this is the official case for Mi 8. Outside silicone, in the middle, suede. There are three colors to choose from, and I have opted for a black variant.
Original case for Xiaomi Mi 8
Traditionally, Xiaomi modeled itself when packaging the product from a company from Cupertino. Same box, same closing from the back. In the Apple product, however, you can definitely extend the tray from the case inside and "feel" if it is nice to touch.
Silicon case for Mi 8 is nice to the touch, greatly improves the grip. There is no risk that the phone slips out of your hand. The phone fits perfectly inside. In retrospect, the purchase of the black Mi 8 black case was not the best choice. The fingerprint reader does not look very good. You can always seal it, unlocking your face works very well.
The only minus of the case is easy "catching" dirt.
Original case for Xiaomi Mi 8 I bought on AliExpress.apart from black there are two more colors - red and navy blue. If someone likes to carry the phone in a protective case, then a dedicated model from Xiaomi will be a very good choice.
