Thaughts on Xiaomi Mi 10
This is a great phone, however i would have loved it more if the rear is protected by a Gorilla Glass 5 or 6. The absence of the Gorilla Glass makes it easy to scratch or shatter in the case of dropping it accidentally. But there is hope, you might consider using a case for it, all in all the Xiaomi Mi 10 specs are super dope.
