this problem is reported with curved displays only, thats why some people prefer Apple because its display has similar side and bottom bezels which is what is aesthetic, not curved, narrower sides=harder to hold and use, unless you hold with a hand and use another which is not what most people do.
As usual, a very thorough review. Looks like the Redmi 10X 5G will complicate matters with a faster SOC, telephoto capabilities, 5G and an equivalent, of not lower, price. I can't wait to see the team's review of that phone.
I received my Mi Note 10 Lite on 11th of June 2020. I have requested a refund yesterday. The volume UP button has stopped working. I read reviews about the build quality being very good. Therefore, I fail to understand how bad could it be for the button to fail in less than a week. Prior to this, I used a umidigi F1 for more than a year. Apart from freezing issues every 10 minutes, the umdigi phone seemed to have better build quality.
Even midranges of other brands are bringing better screen calibration than samsung flagships...
[deleted post]What made you even think that I don't understand that?
I just said that worse products with "better" (questionably) appearance is a bad thing and it's not OK for companies to make them that way.
after 5 years this will be xiaomi phone name : xiaomi bluemi note 10XYZ SE pro lite plus 6G

But that doesn't mean past iPhones didn't look good or people wouldn't use it as a fashion accessory.

"With inferior aesthetic, the manufacturer better hope they are like Apple." - LOL, so, is it OK to manufacture worse products if they have better appearance? I don't think so.
I said aesthetics is not important for consumer electronics, not in general. Though in any other area sacrificing convenience for aesthetics is just horrible.

With inferior aesthetic, the manufacturer better hope they are like Apple. Most people buy apple becos of the ecosystem, and they pretty much are out of choice.
Saying aesthetic is useless is as good as saying all the artist, fashion designer and phone designer are a waste of resources. If you are too plain to understand that
, then it's too sad for you.
How can be the Note 10 lite's endurance rating 23% better than the Note 10's? The measured hours are almost the same (33/12/22 vs 36/12/21), so does the hardware.

"Consumers are swayed by looks" - because they were taught to be swayed. How would companies use different looks to sell more products if it wouldn't work? So they made it work, e.g. through advertisement.
"Why modern smartphone don't come in simple colors or in plastic" - actually, some of them do; usually cheaper ones, because creating looks require paid work (even if it's a pointless work) and cheaper smartphones are easier to sell, because you don't need to convince people to spend big bucks, only to choose exactly your product.
And how to convince people to spend big bucks on more expensive products? Either to ensure you make that good of a product so it worth that money (as Apple does) or to make up some "premium" thingy that allegedly worth that money.. just because (as some of others do, e.g. Samsung with curved screens).

Most of it is screen (with notch so it's not so aesthetic) and black bar around it. Edges? They are just [not always] monotone colored metal. Back? It's just monotone colored piece of glass. In fact, most people wear cases on phones so edges and back aren't even seen. So, is there any appearance that worth mentioning as a reason to buy an iPhone?
And, yeah, I respect Apple for that, they don't make fancy appearances for most of their products; it even may be called "an absence of appearance", and that is great.

You can twist all you one, but it is a fact that many consumer are swayed by look. If look ain't important, then why are modern smartphone doesn't come in simple color or in plastic? Plastic has benefit over glass in many areas which I have stated.

People are just taught to think about "part of fashion" and such nonsense. Actually smartphones don't need to have various appearances as it doesn't give them more functionality. And customization (which by itself is kinda overrated) is possible through cases, vinyl skins, aerography, etc.

Btw, iPhones don't have curved screen - maybe because Apple understands (at least for now) something about convenience and practicality?

Smartphone or even phone for that matter has always been part of the fashion, otherwise you will only see one design. And if it is not important, smartphone will be better made with plastic, its cheaper, more durable and lighter than glass.
