Among them, Xiaomi mobile phone is naturally the absolute focus of the game, and is the biggest cake for Xiaomi's 8th anniversary celebration. Xiaomi 8, Xiaomi 8SE mobile phone has already been reviewed, and Xiaomi 8 Explorer Edition is not yet open for sale.
However, due to time reasons, the previous Xiaomi 8 evaluation did not explain some of the features in place, so after a week of heavy use by the author, decided to supplement the detailed experience of Xiaomi 8. Let's talk about Xiaomi 8, and then test the various projects of the machine.
Xiaomi 8 is the first digital jump upgrade for Xiaomi's mobile phone. From Xiaomi generation 1 in 2011, Xiaomi’s mobile phone has never missed other numbers. This jump jumped directly to 8 on the one hand because of the 8th anniversary of its establishment and the other. The aspect also reflects that the status of Xiaomi 8 is important enough.
But frankly speaking, the appearance of Xiaomi 8 basically can not see the design, whether it is a positive Liu Haiping or a vertical double camera back, I believe users see more of the iPhone X's shadow. However, it would be completely wrong to deny Xiaomi 8 in this way.
First of all, we know that Xiaomi is not the first mobile phone to pay tribute to the iPhone. It is as big as the appearance, small as a system, and most domestic mobile phones are moving closer to the iPhone.
Secondly, Xiaomi’s mobile phones have been innovated in the past, such as the need to consume huge costs, do not hesitate on the yield rate to make ceramic back covers, and cantilever beam piezoelectric ceramic sound guides to get rid of traditional mobile phone handsets and so on.
Therefore, we should not regard him as a poor student because of a good student's copy of the question. Although we do not know why top students need to copy questions, and from the current configuration of Xiaomi 8, Xiaomi 8 definitely belongs to the flagship mobile phone in China.
Next, we began to perform tests on the Xiaomi 8's infrared face recognition, GPS signal, charging and battery life, self-timer, and MIUI 10.
2. infrared face recognition and GPS signals
Xiaomi 8 uses 6.21 inch Samsung AMOLED screen, support Always On Display, can display alarm clock in real time in daily use, first used Liu Haiping design, but bangs area is even larger than the iPhone X, should be the largest flagship mobile phone .
In addition, Xiaomi 8 joined infrared lighting originals and infrared cameras in Liu Hai. These two components can provide infrared face recognition technology for Xiaomi. Although this technology is less structural than 3D, it is simpler than domestic mobile phones. Use the camera to unlock, infrared all-weather to unlock a lot easier.
This time, Xiaomi 8's infrared face recognition tests its dark light environment and its level of security.
a. Dark light environment

It can be seen that the Xiaomi 8 with infrared face unlocking is more advantageous in the dark light environment, and the brightness of the mobile phone can be adjusted to the minimum to recognize the human face. It seems that the infrared has no high requirements for light.
It is also worth mentioning that Xiaomi 8 supports lifting and awakening. After the author used it for several days, Xiaomi 8's infrared face unlocking can completely replace the back fingerprint. So that the Internet has been covered with back-printing Xiaomi 8 mobile phone shell.
b. Security level
Face safety test
According to the author's own photo print, Xiaomi 8 successfully maintained the lock screen state, and did not unlock the photos. However, there was still a gap between the relative 3D structure light, and it could not complete the face-lift and other higher-level functions, but it could achieve infrared This point is also not easy, after all, the domestic mobile phone in the dark environment is basically a failure.
However, for the security of infrared face unlock, it is still worth studying because it is the first infrared face unlock technology mobile phone, I decided to enter the CIT mode of the Xiaomi 8, and then use the infrared camera to take pictures and unlock.
↑↑↑Infrared Photo Face Safety Test
Infrared photos are printed out in black and white using a printer, and Xiaomi 8 still has not been successfully unlocked. But when the author cut the picture out of humanoid avatar, Xiaomi 8 successfully unlocked.

The unlocking of Xiaomi 8 does not mean that its level of security is not enough. The first thing to know is that infrared face recognition security does not have a 3D structure and is only suitable for unlocking. What's more, you need to call Xiaomi 8 need infrared camera photo cut to use the crack, compared to other domestic use of the camera to unlock the face of the phone, in the security is really higher.
c. GPS signal
In terms of GPS, Xiaomi 8 has adopted the dual-frequency dual GPS super-precision positioning technology for the first time in the world, which is quite a surprise. The built-in Broadcom BCM47755 GPS chip has a 3-5 times improvement in accuracy compared with ordinary positioning. However, I believe that this kind of technology will increase in the future, because Broadcom chips are sold, and if anyone buys it, Broadcom will sell it.
Simply put, Xiaomi 8 uses L1+L5 dual-frequency dual positioning, which can release two GPS signals at the same time. Whichever density is stronger, choose where to reduce common ionospheric delay and building reflection interference.
After the author's test records, in the high-speed rail driving, Xiaomi 8's dual GPS performance is excellent, even if the railway intensive route, there has been no positioning failure.

The author's environment GPS signal is relatively weak, after testing the Xiaomi 8 can quickly locate, and the accuracy is also much more accurate than the previous generation of flagship Xiaomi 6.
3. MIUI 10 experience
The author of this Xiaomi 8 is the engineering machine, pre-installed MIUI 10, the system in the appearance of the use of the full screen for a more in-depth optimization and adaptation, and further improve the love of students, for example, the user can complete the voice operation directly Ordering a designated train ticket simplifies the procedure.
↑↑↑Notched display adaptation
MIUI 10's adaptation to Notched display is still in place. There is no sense of isolation in the display area, especially the frame curvature. However, the author did not find the power display. Only the pull-down notification bar will have the power digital display. This is not very useful for domestic users. Friendly, maybe there will be improvements in the future.
For full-screen adaptations, MIUI 10 always makes me feel the iPhone X in terms of volume adjustment, but other aspects are very good, such as full-screen gestures, the overall situation can be right slip, compared to most of the domestic mobile phone Slip gestures are a lot easier. Task management has also been improved by using the vertical space of the screen to remove tasks in a horizontal slide and display more content.
In addition, MIUI 10 supports functions such as single shot blur, AI preloading application, white noise, etc. because Xiaomi 8 is not used here for the time being, and it is not explained too much.
In MIUI 10, Xiaoai was improved and optimized. For example, Xiaoai “Leading the Jingdou” and so on, the new Xiaoai training program was also added. After starting the driving mode, the user can click on the screen to release voice commands, navigate, and answer the phone. , WeChat and other operations do not need to use hands.
For MIUI, the author is not familiar with, because from the Android phone has been using the original or other OS, but after using a week later, go to use other mobile phones, always habitual left/right slide back, have to say MIUI 10 The full screen gestures are addictively convenient.
4. Charge life: PCMark10 hours battery life
In terms of battery life, Xiaomi 8 is equipped with a 3400 mAh battery, which is closely related to battery life, such as the screen size of the device and the power consumption of the chip. How will this 6.21 inch Snapdragon 8 equipped with the Snapdragon 845 SoC achieve endurance performance?
a. PCMark life test
The author here uses PCMark to test it, and the Xiaomi 8 turns on 30% brightness, 20% volume, connects Wi-Fi, does not insert a card, closes the positioning, and runs points.
↑↑↑PCMark endurance score
After running points, Xiaomi 8's PCMark endurance test score was 9 hours and 33 minutes. This score is quite satisfactory, but in daily use, the author found that it is still very power-efficient, and under normal use, Xiaomi 8 can guarantee a full day usage of.
b. Online video testing
The author once again uses the client to play the online barrage video, 40% volume, 50% brightness, and starts playing online from 42% of power for 30 minutes.

↑↑↑Online video testing
After 30 minutes, the remaining power is 35% and the power consumption is 7%. This power consumption can still be accepted, which is not much different from the Snapdragon 845 on the market.
Through the test, the author also found that when MIUI 10 played video in the horizontal screen, there was no round transition in the direction of the bangs of the fuselage. Although the follow-up system optimization was able to handle it, they still felt that such a low-level error was not a crime committed by Xiaomi. And here is to say about the power icon display, when watching the video need to slide down the notification bar to watch the video, more influential viewing experience.
C. Charging test
In terms of charging, Xiaomi 8 uses Qualcomm QC4.0+, but only with QC3.0 18W power supply, if you need faster charging speed, then you can only use a third-party power supply to support QC4.0+, here We use the included 18W power supply for charging test, turn on Wi-Fi, turn off positioning, and start charging from 5% power.
↑↑↑Charging speed curve
After testing, Xiaomi 8 took 95 minutes to fill, which is a normal level of 18W fast charge. The charging temperature is normal and there is a big step up compared to the charging temperature performance of the Xiaomi 6Xiaomi 6 .
5. Conclusion: Innovation may be late but never absent
Although I was not a Mi fans, the stunningness left behind by Xiaomi MIX was still vivid, so I was looking forward to the 8th Anniversary conference of Xiaomi, but in the end I was a little disappointed with Xiaomi's mobile phone. I thought carefully, what innovation did Xiaomi have in the end? ? Whether it is the unlocking of infrared face or dual-frequency GPS, it is a third-party technology, and it is somewhat disappointed with Xiaomi's press conference.
However, after experiencing Xiaomi 8 seriously, it made the author's mentality reversed. Infrared face unlock, Snapdragon 845, Xiaoai voice assistant and so on, these functions seem to be the function that Xiaomi should have. Actually, these functions are the highlight of any mobile phone manufacturer.
Xiaomi 8's flaws are real, such as appearance and some system UI similar to iPhone, system optimization is not enough place.
However, the above shortcomings appeared to be soft and weak in the face of the selling price of 2,699 yuan. When I took Xiaomi 8's face and unlocked it in the evening, I sighed conveniently on the one hand, and on the other hand echoed the words of Ray's boss, “Everyone can enjoy the technology.” Yes, this man did.
The Xiaomi/Redmi mobile phone has definitely made many users feel the joy of technology with an absolute price/performance ratio. For example, Xiaomi 8, the lowest Snapdragon 845 mobile phone with a price of 2,699 yuan, and an infrared face unlocking function.
Finally, some people may think Xiaomi 8 is not innovative, but Xiaomi 8 is really a kind of mobile phone, so I believe that Xiaomi's innovation may be late, but it will never be absent.
