That's because they usually round off the number in marketing. It just sounds neater to say 8MP

That's weird that they say the smaller the number,but still some photos still show 8.0mp,some 8.5mp,I guess it can variate between photos ?

Sounds like you are looking at file size?? MB's not MP's. That can vary with compression. Resolution will not vary.
