DxOMark has reviewed the Redmi Note 8 Pro, which is Xiaomi’s first phone with a 64-megapixel main camera, and it gave the budget mid-ranger an overall score of 84, which is a point below two 2019 mid-rangers: the Galaxy A50 and Nokia 7.2.
For its overall score, DxOMark noted that despite having a high-resolution sensor, the Redmi Note 8 Pro struggles in showing fine detail—which is more evident with indoor shooting. Dynamic range is relatively limited, as the Redmi Note 8 Pro struggles in handling high-contrast scenarios—there’s noticeable highlight clipping when shooting such scenes.
Despite those flaws, DxOMark noted that the Redmi Note 8 Pro has decent autofocus performance, good target exposure, and good subject isolation, especially in bokeh mode. As for videos, the Redmi Note 8 Pro exhibits the same problems with photos, evident with exposure and white balance instabilities when shooting in changing light conditions.
Overall, DxOMark said that while the Redmi Note 8 Pro cannot compete with flagship phones, its overall performance is still commendable for a budget mid-range device. You can read their full review here.
