The Mi 10 Pro has earned plenty of positive reviews for its excellent rear cameras and audio performance, as well as for being competitive across the board. It would seem, however, that the phone has one major weakness, and one that may be a dealbreaker for some in the social media era.

The Mi 10 Pro is widely regarded as Xiaomi's first true flagship that can compete with the rest of the heavy-hitters. The phone has now made its way to DxOMark for an evaluation of its selfie camera, and it appears that's one aspect the Xiaomi flagship still lags behind the rest of the pack.

The Mi 10 Pro earned an overall score of 83. That's...a pretty poor score, worse than even the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (92) that was released in 2018. In fact, it's worse than just about every flagship phone launched over the past year, and is just on par with the new iPhone SE (85), Xiaomi's own Mi Mix 3 (84) that was launched in 2018, and the mid-range Samsung Galaxy A71 (83).

It's weird that the Mi 10 Pro performs so poorly here. By all metrics, it's a solid phone in just about every other metric. Its rear cameras are competitive with other flagship phones this year, and audio performance has been hailed as being the best of the lot this year.
