    Xiaomi Mi 8 and Honor 10 are the phone of same price range above 30k. Both of them have their own pros and cons and you need to have a look at their detailed comparison once to decide the one that suits you. Xiaomi Mi 8 has a larger screen which is good for watching movies but at the same time difficult for one hand use. On the other hand, Honor 10 higher resolution cameras that surely wins the battle.
