Xiaomi Mi 8 has passed almost two months since the official launch. I did not know what version I want to have, basic? or maybe wait for Explorer Edition. However, for a long time it was not known when exactly it will go on sale, only yesterday we know that this will happen in 5 days. The next days passed and I still could not make a decision, Mi 8, Mi 8 SE or wait. By chance, I found the promotion of the white version of 6GB RAM and 128 GB internal memory, I found that I was waiting quite a bit and clicked Buy now.
Xiaomi Mi 8 unpacking
After fourteen days of placing an order I received a parcel with a new flagship from Xiaomi. The smartphone is packed in a black box. It's good, but the series of frameless smartphones from Xiaomi, Mi Mix has a more exclusive box. On the front we can see a large number of eight showing the number of the model. A year ago was Mi 6, this year Mi 8, and where Mi 7? Xiaomi specifically resigned from 7, they decided to "catch up" with the company's age. This year Xiaomi celebrated its eighth birthday.
I am used to the fact that when I open a box with a new smartphone is the first thing that will be the newly purchased product. Xiaomi has disappeared from this in Mi Mix and the same is true of the new Mi 8. The first thing we will see is a cardboard card inside which other, not important accessories are hidden.
Inside the cardboard box there is a silicone case, Chinese brochures, a SIM card pull-out needle and an adapter - the smartphone does not have a headphone jack.
It's time to go deeper inside the box. When we pull the phone, there is a charger and a cable underneath. Everything that comes to us together with Mi 8, interesting if the Explorer Edition will contain something more.
Time for the most important aspect of today's entry, Xiaomi Mi 8 smartphone.
I do not like to carry the phone in a case, but some do not imagine that the phone does not have a case and protective glass. Whoever likes, I prefer to feel what I pay for.
The hardware device looks very good, worse on the software. Currently I have to wait 360 hours to upload Xiaomi.eu software which is definitely more pleasant to use. Does anyone know a way to speed up this activity? Impressions of friends on Mi 8? it looks just like the iPhone X, with the difference that it is over 2x cheaper and my version has 2x more internal memory. Mi 8 is cute. First impressions? Super performance, great camera.
I recommend buying the 8 Mi in the Gearbest.com store, mine arrived in equally two weeks and thanks to the Priority Line shipment I did not have any additional charges, which I received on delivery.
Currently in GB store there are nice promotions on Mi 8
Xiaomi Mi 8 6 / 64 GB for free Mi Band 3 for 1850 PLN
Xiaomi Mi 8 6 / 128GB for free Mi Band 3 for 2050 PLN
I recommend buying the 128GB version, only 200 PLN and twice as much space for data.
