Probably no one doubts that Xiaomi with its series of flagships My 10 made a big qualitative leap. However, the most advanced mobile hardware today has asked for its tax, and that is the higher price.
In addition, every euro is justified in the case of the Mi 10
The manufacturer presented the Mi 10 not only in a top design, but also equipped smartphones with the best mobile hardware today. Of course, this increased the price of the smartphone to over the value of € 500 / CZK 12, and we have not been used to such prices with Xiaomi smartphones so far.
Xiaomi Mi 10 curved screen costs $ 90, and other flat screens are only $ 30. In addition, Xiaomi's 108MP sensor costs $ 50 and 48MP costs $ 13. Snapdragon 865 and 5G basebands cost twice as much as 855!

However, if we take into account the production costs of a smartphone, we will find that every euro above is justified and perfect equipment requires higher costs. Famous leakster with a nickname Ice Universe on twitter, he mentioned only three basic elements of the Mi 10 equipment, which significantly exceed the costs compared to conventional mobile hardware.
The most expensive is the processor, the display is tight
The Mi 10 smartphones feature a 6,67-inch curved AMOLED perforated display that costs approximately $ 90 (83 € / 2 094 CZK). The cost of a conventional flat panel display is usually no more than $ 30 (28 € / 706 CZK).
The Snapdragon 865 with support for 5G mobile networks is similar. The cost of purchasing this element is double that of the previous SD855 model. The estimated price of Snapdragon 855 was around $ 50 (46 € / 1160 CZK), so a new 865 can cost up to $ 100 (92 € / 2325 CZK).
Last but not least, the price was also significantly increased by the 108 MPx photo sensor from the Samsung workshop. Its acquisition costs are the least $ 50 (46 € / 1 160 CZK). This is compared to a 48 MPx sensor for about $ 13 (12 € / 303 CZK) almost four times more.
As you can see, the equipment of the new Mi 10 is really expensive and therefore the higher price of the new flags is justified. In addition, due to the company's low margins and their pricing policy, the Mi 10 costs significantly less than competitively equipped smartphones.
For all of them, we will mention only the basic Galaxy S20 model, the price of which starts at € 899 and has some parts of the equipment weaker than the Mi 10, such as the 108 MPx sensor.
