Company Xiaomi unveiled a new flagship Mi 10 in China. The company planned to introduce a global version of the phone at the event MWC in Barcelona, but because of the recent newsrelated to the cancellation of the exhibition, Xiaomi has decided to present the global version later in a separate presentation. The phone was good technically and is comparable with the Galaxy S20, but many do not appreciate the cost of new items. If earlier the flagship line of Xiaomi was considered the best in terms of the price, today this statement can be put on the discussion, because Mi 10 appreciated significantly more expensive than last year solution. However, everything in order.
Last year Xiaomi introduced Mi 9. It was priced at 445 dollars for the version with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory. The version with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB ROM estimated at us $ 490, and the version of 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal memory offered to consumers for $ 595.
The phone at the time as a 10 Mi today, offered the flagship iron and was comparable with the S10 at the time.
Along with Mi 10 the company also introduced Mi 10 Pro. What good noviki? They offer the Snapdragon 865, at 6.67-inch AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of 90 Hz and a resolution of FHD+, with support for HDR10+, 108-Megapixel camera (her work complemented shirik 13 MP, 2 MP macro module and 2-Megapixel depth), fast charging, support 5G.
Mi 10 Mi 10 Pro and got 8/12 GB RAM type LPDDR5 and built-in memory UFS 3.0. Mi 10 Mi Pro is different from 10 extra 20-Megapixel wide-angle camera and 12-Megapixel and 8-Megapixel telephoto modules. In DxO test, the device got 124 points and took first place. And this is quite logical, given that in the directory of related yet Galaxy S20.
Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro support wifi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, dual 5G, NFC. The device is capable of recording video in 4K and 8K, has an optical and electronic stabilization. The back cover of the phone is made of glass, there are stereo speakers, a port of Type-C.
Mi 10 equipped with a battery 4780 mAh, fast charging in 30 watt and wireless charging all at the same 30 watts. Also it supports reverse charging at 10 watts. In Mi Pro 10 battery 4,500 mAh with fast charging at 50 watts, wireless 30 watt and reverse 10 watts. In S20 Ultra, for example, fast charging at 45 watts.
Technically all pretty standard, and expect something else in 2020 is not worth it. Another question — the price. Mi 10 for the version with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory is estimated at 573 dollars, up 128 dollars more Mi 9 minimal modifications. The version with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of ROM is 616 USD for 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of ROM will have to give 673 USD.
Want the best? Mi 10 Pro with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB of internal memory is estimated at 716 dollars, a version with 12 GB RAM and 256 GB of ROM is 787 dollars, and here for the version with 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB will have to pay almost $ 900 (859, to be exact).

Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro is too expensive
I think it’s clear that Mi and 10 Mi 10 Pro have become too expensive. OnePlus 7T estimated at 535 dollars, OnePlus 8 will cost about $ 600. Thus, if the difference between the flagship Xiaomi and OnePlus have been substantial, in 2020 they will cost about the same. Besides, the maximum modification with 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of internal memory the phone is valued at $ 900. For almost the same amount you can buy Galaxy S20 minimal modifications with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory. Don’t know about you, but I would probably chose the Samsung simply because the Koreans offer more high-quality software, including improved software and photo processing.
