Impressions

Redmi 8 and Redmi 8A are a definite upgrade in terms of design, battery, and charging. But no so much when it comes to other hardware like the processor. The Snapdragon 439 is weaker compared to Snapdragon 632 available on the Redmi 7.

Redmi 8 looks good but if you want more power you should look elsewhere. Redmi 7 which is more powerful than the Redmi 8 is priced at Rs. 14,999 (2/32GB) and Rs. 16,999 (3/32GB). So, we can see that Redmi 8 is a cheaper option but it a less powerful option as well. So, if you care about aesthetics much more than performance then you should go for the Redmi 8 otherwise the Redmi 7 is better.

Similarly, Redmi 8A is a facelift of the Redmi 7A. It uses the same processor but has a better design and bigger display. So, both of the devices are not a significant upgrade over it’s older counterparts.
