Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite

Another smartphone alternative that you surely need to consider buying if you are interested in owning one with excellent photo results is Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite. This was announced and released in September 2018 and believed to be better than the Mi 8 Pro in several aspects. For sure, the cameras are not the only point of consideration that makes this handheld a great choice. Its performance is also awesome when it comes to mobile gaming such as PUBG and Asphalt 9. In general, we agree that this product is lite, but it is clearly not lightweight.

Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite Specs

Via MIUI 10, Mi 8 Lite comes with Android 8.1 (Oreo). Surely, the Xiaomi’s MIUI 10 allows you to enjoy various features including full-screen gestures, Mi Drop, Dual Apps, and many more. The good news is, the vendor provides the users of Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite with useful updates especially to fix bugs. To support its performance, Mi 8 lite uses the 14nm Qualcomm SDM660 Snapdragon 660 octa-core CPU. This allows you to do multitasking and gaming activities smoothly. The smartphone comes with 4GB of RAM or 6GB for another model and 64 GB of internal storage or 128 GB in some models. The card slot can take up to 256 GB, inserted in the SIM 2 slot, to extend the storage. In addition, the non-removable Li-Po 3350 mAh battery can last long enough to enable you to use the 6.26-inch phone.

Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite Camera

As stated previously, Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite is a great alternative especially for you who wish to have a mobile phone with awesome cameras. The dual main cameras provide you with 12 MP and 5 MP lenses that feature LED flash. Of course, when compared to some of its competitors like Lenovo Z5 Pro, this phone may not provide you with better details especially due to the fact that the selfie camera is only a single one. However, still, this can be much better since the front one is 24 MP which means excellent for taking a selfie and doing video call.

You may even expect better photos and videos than Lenovo Z5 Pro’s 16 MP and 8 MP front lenses. In fact, we recommend this for you who love to create a bokeh effect, the effect of blurring the background of the object you shoot. Another thing is that this phone provides you with an Al mode, a software trick that allows you to apply color pre-sets.


Well, those are several details that you can consider about the Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite as one on your hunting list of smartphones to buy. For sure, you need to compare it to other products including the Lenovo Z5 Pro, Honor Magic 2, Apple iPhone XS or Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) just to make sure that you only buy the right handheld based on your interests and needs at the right budget.
