[deleted post]Lol, true. At least they have cheap phones. You can get one each 6-12 months without losing too much money. But you need to basically throw away your last one, as nobody wants it anymore for being obsolete.

Their hardware is ok for couple of months, because is cheap. But as soon as the next set of models arrive, is bye bye phone. You need to update also. Not to mention, the reselling procedure of a Xiaomi phone is very hard, because nobody is interested in second hand Xiaomi phones. Unless you are willing to sell it for nothing.

Andrew 65, 26 Jan 2021For what?? Mi 10 in 865 that 870 is the same!!! Jesus!!😶😶Not exactely, the sd 865+ is about the same as 870
But even if comparing 865 with 870, It doesn't worth even if someone play on Emulators like EGG NS or damon os2 or dolphin......
Or high end ANDROID games "pubg and cod are not high-end"

Anonymous, 26 Jan 2021even BBK have phones with IP68 like Oppo Find X2/X3 pro ... moreWho cares ? If it is water resistant, and it is surely is
Then there is no need to pay, for nothing
Maybe it is not water proof but it won't be either even if it is bcuz you will have to pay if it stop working bcuz of water
50$ of a name "ip68" will make a big difference between someone who has "X" budget, and someone who has "X-50$"
If we take X as the same price of the phone
I love my logic

I'm done with Xiaomi with their unfixed bugs to order phones but busy releasing hardware after hardware. It's true you only buy hardware from Xiaomi without software support.

Mi 10 (SD870) is better than Mi 10 (SD865), with improved performance (SD870 is better than SD865Plus) and comparable thermal.

If you have Mi 10(SD865), you have no need for this upgrade. But if you are interested in Mi 11(SD888), this is a viable alternative. You can expect some significant discount at the upcoming 6-18-2021 Shopping Festival for Mi 10 (SD870).

This also serves as a reminder for Xiaomi smartphone buyers: Better phones are just a few weeks away, and significantly better phones are at most a few months away.

Only Mi 10, Mi 10Pro, and Mi 10Ultra will be considered the proper members of the Mi 10 family. All others are either adopted children, or the "servants" of the family. Mi 10 (SD870), as a better version of Mi 10(SD865), will the real 4th child of the Mi 10 family. It is intended for those who are not happy with the thermal performance of Mi 11(SD888), offering slightly less performance than Mi 11(SD888) but better thermal.

By the way, Xiaomi has just lowered the price of Mi 10(SD865) from 3800CNY ($585) to 3400CNY ($520), to compete against Honor V40 (3500CNY, $540). This new Mi 10 (SD870) will be similarly priced at 3400CNY ($520).

I'd love an SE refresh too, it's starting to show it's age with the processor a little.

ericwang, 26 Jan 2021Qualcomm stop selling vanilla Sd865 now,and Xiaomi run out ... moreFair point. But if the hardware spec for Mi 10 refresh is not any different than the existing SD 865 Mi 10, I see no reason to upgrade.

My mi 10T Pro has no such problems that this guy is claiming.

So Mi10 refresh is just a Mi10 with Sd870...

Can they refresh the Mi 9 SE with an 870 or 765? I was on a Xiaomi kick for a while, but I've decided I'm never buying another phone wider than 72mm. I never carry them daily. Xiaomi is basically dead to me at this point.

Why comment so shitty
Sd870 have no real difference compare to Sd865,just name and frequency change
Xiaomi just want to keep on producing Mi10 to fullfil the price gap between Mi10Lite(and later Mi11 Lite) and Mi11.
And since Qualcomm stop selling Sd865,Xiaomu just put the Sd870 on Mi10 and call it Mi10 refresh/Mi10S
No real difference between those two phone.
