FIRST IMPRESSION

Mi 10 is a very impressive smartphone on paper, it has got almost all the features, powerful processor, Quad cameras, 90Hz display, very very impressive stereo speakers, great display, all of that. But when you look at the pricing of Rs 49,999 then you realize that at this price it should have had Quad HD+ display, IP rating, Telephoto Lens, Bigger camera lens than 2MP one.

At this price its main competitor is OnePlus 8 pro (https://gadgetlens.com/one-plus-8-pro-specification/) which is better than Mi 10 in almost every aspect be it camera versatility, IP rating, Brand value, Better user interface. I even see people opting for OnePlus 8 (https://gadgetlens.com/one-plus-8-specification/) and save up to eight thousand Rupees. The Point is- In my thinking the price of Mi 10 and also people’s less reliability on MIUI due to Ads and other personal data breach cases have ruined the play. It will be very difficult for Xiaomi to get great sales figures for this phone.
