The Controversy

People are not happy with the estimated price of this smartphone as Xiaomi has various performance and connectivity issues related to its phone and being a Chinese phone, the price is relatively high concerning the value that this Chinese smartphone gives to its users.

There is dissatisfaction since many smartphone companies including Samsung and Apple offer much more for the same price as Xiaomi Mi 10 and the quality offered by companies like Samsung and Apple is much higher.

A reason for the increased price of the smartphone is also because of its manufacturing in China due to which Mi 10 has to face Import duty and GST which overall increases the price of this phone.
