Best thing about the phone is that it gives great value for the money. There is very good battery life and overall performance is strong. And unique thing from others is its 3.5mm audio socket and notification LED.  One has to compromise on camera quality as it needs improvement.

Con is that it is heavy and bulky and it’s quite difficult to hold such a phone with one hand while using but yes it’s not slippery. Xiaomi doesn’t provide an option of 256 storage and if you will choose to insert a microSD card then you will lose the space for a second Nano-SIM and that’s a little disappointing.

Another worth noting point is its feature to repel water and dust which is not likely to be present at this price. Overall Xiaomi Mi 10i has the best performance if you are ok with camera quality and size. You should surely go for it.
