Reviews for the Xiaomi Mi 10S

Source: Igeekphone English
Mi 10S is a very accurate sub-flagship. It upgrades the SoC, the core accessory that users are most concerned about in this price range, based on the Mi 10 standard version, while also reducing the price. This wave of increased volume and price cuts helped Xiaomi Mi 10 get stuck at the sub-flagship price and kept the bucket machine’s status.
