So, which phone is better to buy up to 10,000 rubles?

Xiaomi Redmi 8 3 / 32GB

One of the hottest new products of the season is Xiaomi’s Redmi 8. This company is very well known in our market and is very successful..

Although Redmi 8 turned out to be relatively inexpensive, it looks like a device a couple of times more expensive – and that’s great, you see. But the place for the fingerprint scanner is not very well chosen – under the main camera, the glass can be stained. The camera itself is dual, it shoots just at its price.

Somewhat surprised by the presence of not the most powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 chip. On the other hand, there are no problems regarding the speed of the system. But the battery capacity was increased – as much as 5000 mAh! NFC in this model is missing.

But the case in this case is made of metal and this is great – the probability of falling out of hands is lower than if it were glass. And besides, metal pleasantly cools the hand. A choice of several colors, including gold or blue.

The smartphone is much smaller diagonal display – 5.71 inches, but because it turned out to be compact. But the processors are the same – this is MediaTek Helio P35 (MT6765).
