Redmi Note 8 bestselling users disappointed with stripped-down MIUI 12 and Android 10

Just yesterday, Xiaomi began to distribute a stable proprietary MIUI 12 shell based on Android 10 for the best-selling smartphone Redmi Note 8. What was the disappointment of users when, after a long wait, they did not find many key functions in the shell.

Note that Redmi Note 8 users had to wait many months for the opportunity to try both MIUI 12 and the Android 10 operating system. Such a delay was especially offensive, given that the “related” models Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 9 received similar updates for a long time, and Chinese users of Redmi Note 8 got MIUI 12 already a few weeks ago.

According to numerous reviews, including in the official Mi Community, Redmi Note 8 users got the firmware without some of the features that are usually present in MIUI 12 firmware based on Android 10. For example, there is no navigation bar or new animation on the smartphone. no innovations of the “Gallery”, no floating windows, and so on.

The Redmi Note 8 smartphone debuted last summer and has proven to be very successful. In May 2020, the head of the company announced that international sales of the Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8 Pro smartphones exceeded 30 million units. 1 million Redmi Note 8 series smartphones were sold in the first month, 5 million in the first two months, and it took 3 months to reach 10 million since its release in August 2019.
