Xiaomi Mi 10 launched will flop in India – My Raw Thoughts

by birtanpublished on January 25, 2021

Hi there this is Ranji than in this video let's talk about the Xiaomi meet 10 which was just a launch yesterday in India and I just want to give you a brief background about it in fact Xiaomi did what do you say this session with us about two weeks ago regarding this device and it was supposed to be this even was supposed to happen about seven days ago and we got all the info about this device except the pricing and as usual at the end of this somebody say what you will search in these days because of the lockdown video-conferencing they said that the pricing will be decent that's what

Generally Xiaomi devices are so many of us it's not just me many other tech reviewers were there also and yes we thought like the pricing will be good or whatever mentally many of us actually thought it will be around the forty thousand I personally thought will be about forty to forty three thousand in fact if you guys recall just two three days ago we did a live broadcast with B bonnets on Bieber's Instagram channel and we talked about the pricing and he was v1 was a request from B bond was suggesting the price of about forty thousand for this when I was saying

About forty four ish or something like that so we thought that the pricing would be very aggressive and in fact I had already made a video about this product earlier as the briefing was done almost 14 days ago so I had shot the video about ten days ago and I was very enthusiastic in that video because I had a certain pricing segment in my head of this product but yesterday when this product was finally launched in India they launched it ACTA here as you can see at 49,999 for the 128 gigabyte million and once I saw that price I was like what the hell is wrong with these

Guys yes they say import duties taxes etc all that stuff that is fine but when you have a different competing product for example the 1 + 8 Pro at 55,000 does this make any sense I was fine with that so I just deleted that old video because it simply did not make sense so and I thought I won't post anything about this one now in fact I did one treat when the pricing was and as you can see it's on the screenshot this is why my Twitter handle and in fact this got almost about one lakh 30,000 views the street actually got fatter – and generally whenever like we

Create stuff and all those things brands representative messages and stuff so one gentleman from again Xiaomi message me about it about the pricing hence and excitement and I was very blunt I like to be very blunt with people I said that the product is good but I feel the pricing in India is wrong and this product will simply not send and we had a little bit of chat and he said that day he appreciates my opinion Frank opinion about that and the topic was closed fine nothing and I didn't decide to put another video about it and that was okay

But later again yesterday if you see the street around almost seven o'clock I tweeted about this one that is of the poco f2 Pro and this is the tweet where I said that I was disappointed with the me tense provides Inc and what happened after this one is that another Xiaomi official actually messaged me and wanted a little bit aggressive in the conversation of water and wanted an explanation why do I think the pricing was bad and trying to sort of defend the product first thing is that guys show me guys this is my Twitter handle and I can post what I want to what they and if I

Am posting stupid things are wrong people will bash me but 95% of people were also saying that the pricing is strong about this product so it's not just me and again second thing I don't have to take any permission from you before posting what I fought so yesterday night I was like disappointed about this I slept over at it let's forget about this one but some of you were still asking about the meetin Vidant opposed to media but to me then so this morning just I ran this poll for just about 20 minutes guys as you can see the stats

Got over 1800 votes and about almost 70% of you my raw thoughts of the meeting so here are my raw thoughts about what I feel about them me 10 specifically that was launched at 50,000 in India first let's talk about the good things from aspects part of you as you can see here are some of the general spec the journal specs are good obviously it is running on the snapdragon 865 soutache phi g support and i like the camera setup the main camera sensor is that 108 megapixel and then we also have ultra white that's a 13 megapixel but the other two cameras

At the back it has a quad camera set up on what just that 2 megapixel for what do you say depth and macro instead of that if you would have given a telephoto zoom lens it would have made lot more sense because you can do that other stuff you are using those lenses also and other brands are actually doing it so just because you wanted to give quad camera the other two cameras are seriously Kim McKee it should have have the what is it telephoto lens this is the same problem I have even with the 1+8 rate low variant they really give the rear facing camera and here also I

Feel everybody's just hyping that 109 8 megapixel but other two cameras those 2 megapixel I simply does not make sense it should have got the telephoto lens I really like the fact that initial in the briefing and that happened almost two weeks ago I was also surprised when they announced that this will have 30 what Val is charging and even reversed and what shining so that's actually a really nice move because one is charging this expensive to implement and they're going with it really fast 30 watt even Samsung flagships do about just 15 watt or wireless

Charging with the special charges so that is one thing I like and also they have the two reverse of Alistar I think I believe that is 10 watts so these are actually the good things about this device but again when we talk about the screen resolution still at 50,000 this is a stabbing of Full HD plus screen not a quad HD and many of the users if you're spending this much now they demand a quad HD screen other words 90 I don't care about it 120 but yeah it's a full HD screen and one thing that I like about this one is this new thing they were mentioning multi-link I'll

Have to check how well this works but this actually combines your Wi-Fi and even your mobile data both the 2.5 4 gigahertz to get you better data connection so that is something I like what they have implemented through the software but apart from that now let's talk about the pricing at 50,000 Xiaomi says that this is because of import duty taxes etc but does that justify for the end user what does the end user here he cares about a specific pricing I would say at 50,000 in India this is not gonna sell a lot of units yes it might sell a

Couple of thousand words but nowhere meaningful numbers and the reason for this is your nearest competitor that is the oneplus skate Pro is now available at 55,000 and it has that quad HD screen also has that 100 so refresh I'm not a big what do you say harping about that but yes it has harsh the higher refresh rate and that quad HD screen and also it has ip67 rating no it doesn't have that hundred and eight megapixel rear facing camera but it has a more useful telephoto camera so technically speaking in many of the specs and yes that ip67 rating also it has so it goes ahead in

Some of the key specs and oneplus if you recall they didn't make the excuse of saying the one flash international pricing if you recall the base variant was what nine hundred dollars and if you add that 18% GST etc do you what's coming to about seventy eight thousand or something like that but what did they do specifically for india they priced it at 55 thousand so they reduced their profit margins if this one plus eight pro would have been priced at about 65 or 70 thousand then this me ten would have made a lot of sense but now with just that five thousand bug price cap

Difference a person who is willing to spend this much will obviously move towards the one plus eight pro and this is what most of the users on Twitter were also saying and the simple fact is that the oneplus comes with oxygen OS and most people will prefer oxygen was over me UI let me actually run a pole over here which one do you prefer oxygen OS or me why and I would say the big reason for that is Xiaomi in the last two years has really destroyed the reputation of me why in India with what they are doing with their cretinous smartphones have been

Shouting about this I've made several videos about this for the past one one and a half years but they are not doing that in fact the odd situation and the crap has increased drastically so much that last month when you are swiping you were getting shady semi poon acts that the UI so if you're doing that what is the reputation you are giving for me UI but again the Xiaomi officials will say that this meat and is their premium product and it does not have that act it does not work like that my friend it's that reputation what do you have created from me UI and that is a big

Problem that you have guys have created for yourself so you just can't say yes on one version of our phones Mia we will not keep it very clean but on other we'll give shady ads and stuff like that that does not work the reputation what you have destroyed this of the me you why in India and I hope you guys fix that and somebody who's paying a premium of let's say over 40,000 these things matter or not to that person a brand image also and in fact because of this me you I act situation your brand image of a me product has also gone down quite a bit that is a simple fact and a person

Who's spending over 40,000 45,000 will definitely keep these things in mind so I feel this is where you guys are failing and you guys need to clean this what you have done with it don't get excuses the me you I – well like sector is clean we don't know what will happen and many users of existing read many phones are frustrated and you just can't do that ok in one version of our smartphones we won't have shitty ads but we will give it in one this is the problem that you guys have created for yourself within the me UI and that is a big question at this price point about

Who's spending more than 40,000 these things like what do you say the brand image what a product has and what is the UI is he confident about that UI is very important and end-user does not care about what taxes what import taxes etc he cares about end price because that is the price that person will be paying and if you have a very different product that is very close to that having better brand image etc users will simply opt for that so I feel people who are going to spend around fifty thousand might add that five thousand and go for the one plus eight provide won't say the one

Plus eight Pro is a perfect product but that is a simple fact that is going to happen in India I won't say that the meeting won't get any sales they might get a couple of thousand sales but again I don't expect this meet and to sell in huge numbers I feel this product as a flop Xiaomi should have been a little bit more aggressive in terms of pricing like what other brands are doing and also it's high time that you see I start to fix your new me why ad situation many people on social media are joking it as a device that is what the fact is and again let me run one more port this is a

Public poll that I'm going to run will you guys be buying this Newton at 50,000 yes or not anyways guys that's it for now thanks for watching this is Ranjit and I hope to see you in my next video
