Is this an all time low price for the RN8? How good is the camera?

I've been using a Redmi Note 5 Pro for 2 years and I've been quite happy with it.

I ordered the new Redmi Note 9 6GB for myself for $330ish last month, but I might consider the RN8 for the kids. Not expecting to receive my Note 9 until August at earliest.
I would definitely pay the extra $40 for the Xiaomi vs Umidigi.

One caveat is that all these China phones will have poor reception in rural areas / cottage country.

Would the poor reception in rural areas for Chinese phones apply to all carrriers?

From my experience, yes, most of these China phones lack the 700 mhz Canadian bands.

Owning the A5 Pro, i would stay away from Umidigi. Garbage camera and poor support. Definitely go with Xiaomi.

How is Xaomi on the security update?

Umidigi has power security updates if that is important to you.

doesn't work with this promo. Price goes back to regular (240$) when you apply coupon. Coupon for using app for 1st time doesn't work either.

I can confirm that my note3 pro could not get LTE connection while my LG phone have no issues, using the same sim card. Tested in Toronto, Winnipeg and Saskatoon.

I think starting with the redmi note 6 /xiaomi a2 the cameras are quite good, way better than note 4 or note 3.

The umidigi has more LTE bands so should have better coverage

Bang good ships from China so it's like aliexpress but worse since less protection if something is wrong

48mp cam? that seems misleading, the photo quality does not measure up to 48mp.

Yes, 48mp is kind of overpromising and only true on a technicality if I recall. That said, the camera is pretty good.

No, the price is $129 USD, $178 is the estimated Cdn price with currency conversion.

It's actually better because Banggood accepts Paypal.
