Redmi Note 8T app freezing

I bought my wife a Redmi Note 8T for xmas, and unfortunately it's been an absolute nightmare to operate ever since she received it. It works perfectly after a reboot, but after a few hours or perhaps half a day of use many of the apps on the phone refuse to open, they just display an all white screen or sometimes the logo of the app, but never open fully. You can close them, or press the home button to go back to something else but that app will not open unless you reboot the phone again.

I did multiple factory resets and re-set everything up but the problem always comes back. I ended up returning it to the retailer (I'm in Australia but the retailer was overseas), but they insist they couldn't re-create the problem, and refused to tell me if they were actually using the phone for a few hours before trying the apps...they seemed to be only ever trying it out after a reboot. I won't name the retailer but their customer service is extremely poor and I certainly won't be using them again. In the end I asked them to send the phone back to me, at which point they demanded $70 to return it as "there were no issues found". I paid it, got the phone back and then cancelled the charges on my credit card just to annoy them.

Anyway...I got the phone back a couple of days ago and set it up again from scratch, MIUI 11.0.5, added my wife's google account, installed half a dozen of her apps (FB Messenger, Whatsapp, Bring shopping etc)...she used the phone for about 2 hours then Messenger and Bring refused to open with the same problem. I can only imagine it's some kind of CPU or RAM issue. It's the 4gb/64gb model so it should be very capable of handling such a light load. Model M1308C3XG.

I figured I'd cut my losses so went and bought her the Mi 9 Lite from a local retailer yesterday morning and it's been working perfectly ever since. Cost twice as much as the 8T but at least I'm not copping an earful any more!

So...I have a new 8T that's has nothing to do....figured I might unlock the bootloader and try TWRP, see if it makes any difference. Did the unlock last night but it tells me I gotta wait 168 hours. Sigh. Anyone got any ideas in the meantime feel free to throw them my way.

Hi Bro.

Me also facing this problem. I am using redmi note 8 (Indian verison)4/64GB variant

I faces the the same problem u mentioned above.

Me also reseted the mobile but the problem still occurs.
Also me unlocked the bootloader and installed the original fastboot flash ROM. But still the problem occurs.
I don't know how to solve this problem.
If you got some solutions suggest me....

Note 8T

I never did get it solved mate, but you know what's interesting is that I can't recreate the issue without a SIM inserted in the phone. I transferred the SIM into the new Mi 9 Lite and it's working fine, and I have been playing with the Note 8T without a SIM...the issue hasn't come back. So my guess is this is a fault with the GSM hardware in this model of phone...it might only happen if you're using a certain frequency which is why not everyone has the problem?

Hi, I'm having exactly the same issues, even though I changed ROM. Seems like a hardware issue. Did you manage to fix it?
