First look at the Xiaomi Mi 8: unboxing the better iPhone

The Xiaomi Mi 8, perhaps one of the most anticipated smartphones of the first half of 2018, has finally arrived in the editorial office. But does the latest flagship from the Chinese company have what it takes to make us fall in love? We were eager to get our hands on it, and created a quick unboxing video to show you the contents of the official package.

While certainly not the most original design out there, the Xiaomi Mi 8 is an elegant smartphone that could convince many doubters. Of course, it has the same hardware as the other top of the range of 2018: Snapdragon 845, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory.

The AMOLED display with the now ubiquitous notch measures 6.21", boasts a FullHD+ resolution and extends over almost the entire front of the device. There's a dual 12MP camera in the back and the 3400mAh battery should be more than enough to get you to the end of the day.

  • Unless these phones come with "global" LTE bands, can't even consider it. The USA market is so "locked down" to the cult of Apple/Samsung, it's hard for pretty much anyone else to get into the USA with a phone. Then, you have the US government telling the FCC to tell the carriers "you better not allow Huawei"...or else. Oh they didn't do that...yeah right. You think at&t, verizon, sprint, t-mobile are going to even attempt to sell something the FCC says you better not? And if they bucked the FCC, you think they would get their mergers, buyouts of other carriers and what not?
    Makes a person wonder how much lobbyist money, was thrown at congress, from Apple/Samsung, to keep a lock on the overpriced phones in the USA market.
