The one thing that has let all the Xiaomi phones down that I've used since the mi 5/6 is the haptics, and even these weren't as good as alot of other phones.
According to a few other reviews I've read, this phone is up there with the best in this respect, yet (unless I've missed it) this doesn't even get a mention in the review.
Iany users here care to comment.?
gsmarena, you are wrong to say not to shoot in 108M. Just compare the tree right of entrance on gsmarena_025.jpg. On 25M (AI on and off) it looks like every branch was wrapped in protective bag. For some reason this it the effect on many phones. Based on your sample photos (I don't own this phone, so cannot say) I would would always shoot in 108M and downsize as needed later (maybe already on the phone, but after taking photo).
Mi 10 to much expensive similar phone category ..Not worth more then I thik 40k range

taghack, 09 May 2020Since the question of rating has come up a few times in this comment section, let me just note... moreHi and thanks.
Yes I have read the two reviews pretty thoroughly hence my comments, not only about the score but also about the two phones performance. I truly appreciate your reviews and they have helped me in my three previous purchases. Now I am a bit confused choosing between a high end phone vs midrange.

Peter Ph, 06 May 2020Good features but Ugliest back design. So sad! Xiaomi never level up! What are you talking about hehehe Xiaomi is 3rd place already on sales (up even to Huawei) and in Spain for example, is better sold than Samsung and Apple, nobody cares about the prettie look, if you have good price and specs

While we have a very thorough system of individual scores and categories that ultimately make up every score, subtle details and differences understandably get lost in the final math. A phone will score lower in one category, then higher in another. Hence, we sincerely hope that you take the time to read the actual review or watch our review video, instead of just relying on a score.

What about pixel size.... Gsmarena shows different pixel size.. And official mi website show different pixel size
Amir , 07 May 2020Missing of (1080 960 fps) in mi 10 was a terrible mistake SD865 by default supports 960fps recording without the need of DRAM.

This sensor is newer but that doesn't make it better sony's imx586 48mp sensor. Mi phones always produce over exposed pics no matter what. Their is point of having a newer sensor if your image processing is a shit.
Syuser, 06 May 2020At that time yes that was the point. This processing is the same at that time on Sony on a few... moreThe point is that Sony phones of the past produced far noisier skies. This phone has a much bigger sensor than the old Sony phones. Given the same megapixel count, how can a small sensor produce less noisy images than a large sensor?
Here is the Z1 review to jot your memory:
Look at how bad the skies are rendered.
BrendonF, 06 May 2020Its there on the Indian website of Xiaomi. Except on the website from their country of origin, they don't put 5G.
As far as I can see, you rate this phone (score) a fraction lower than MI Note 10 (4,2points). Even though the processor in 10 Pro is far better than in the Note 10.
On the other side, the Note 10 has 3,5mm jack, bigger battery and penta-cam on the back.
When I compare PHOTO on GSMArena between the two models, the MI Note 10 seemes to have better quality all over; good liht and low light.
Any comments on this, GSMArena?
