DxO further emphasized the stellar performance of the Mi 8 in its still photography category, returning an amazing score of 105 points in the photo category, which it attributed to a combination of exposures with an extended dynamic range in most lighting conditions, pleasingly rich and vivid color rendering with neutral white balance in bright light, and generally well-controlled artifacts. It also has fast and accurate autofocus and produces a pleasing bokeh with smooth blur transitions and a regular shape to highlights.
Finally, DxO awarded the Mi 8 a total score of 88 for video, the same score awarded the Mi 2S, it, however, commended the autofocus prowess of the device, which in its term is fast accurate and offers good tracking capabilities.
