Mi 8 Lite review

    Mi 8 Lite review
    A low price matched with impressive core features, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite is a strong contender for the Moto G6’s crown
    Xiaomi has officially announced its arrival in the UK with the launch of a pair of phones at seriously tempting prices. The Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite is the cheaper of the pair and it comes in at a price of £259.
    At that sort of money and specification, it won’t trouble the OnePlus 6T like its pricier sibling, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro. Instead, the Mi 8 Lite has a different reasonably priced smartphone in its sights: the Motorola Moto G6, currently king of the budget smartphones.
