Xiaomi Mi 8 display review: just a notch above the MIX 2S

A good panel that keeps up with trends

Xiaomi has finally decided to rely on an OLED panel for its new top of the range. The IPS panel of Mi MIX 2S has always been, although pleasant and of excellent workmanship, one of the weak points of the smartphone (in my opinion) especially for the lack of an Always on display. With the Mi 8, Xiaomi used a 6.21″ AMOLED display with 18.7:9 form ratio and FullHD+ resolution (1080×2248 pixels).

Compared to the 18:9 ratio used on Mi MIX 2S, the display is slightly longer. Why is that? Because Xiaomi has followed current trends and introduced a notch. The screen surface ratio of Mi 8 reaches a value close to 84% which is definitely high despite there are smartphones like OPPO Find X that have broken through the wall by 90%.

Fortunately you can disable the notch from your smartphone settings even though I’ve never really felt the need on any of the smartphones with the notch used so far. The glass protection positioned above the display has been updated using the Gorilla Glass 5 not present on the MIX series smartphone.
