Weekly poll results: Xiaomi Mi Note 10 excites, but chipset lets it down

Chip, 17 November 2019

We've got good news and bad news for Xiaomi. The Mi Note 10 and its penta camera setup headlined by that monstrous 108MP sensor really got everybody excited. We can't really remember the last time when a phone got just 10% disapproval rating, but that's exactly what the Mi Note 10 achieved.

The bad news is that many don't really think the rest of the hardware lives up to the standard set by the camera. The chipset was often brought up in the comments section - many feel a Snapdragon 730G is not enough at the 550 price point.

Xiaomi's own Mi 9T Pro offers a Snapdragon 855, while costing far less than the Mi Note 10 and people are having a hard time living with that compromise.

That explains why the most popular option in our poll was that the Mi Note 10 is merely a sign of things to come. One in every two people would love to get their hands on what they feel is the best camera on the market, but would need a more balanced product overall to pull the trigger. That could be a huge win for Xiaomi provided that some of its competitors don't beat it to the punch and puts the pieces together first.

A more certain victory, though are the 41 percent who find the Mi Note 10 a great buy as it is.

I'd like to say it's more like Alfa Romeo -- half price of the Ferrari, with a light body and provide smooth driving experience which has not a lot difference from Ferrari. But people complain its engine is only V8 but not V12,and compare its horsepo...
