The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro's display simultaneously impresses and disappoints

While the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro has a great display, the Xiaomi smartphone lacks a 120-Hz refresh rate and 1440p resolution

In our review of the Mi 10 Pro, the Xiaomi smartphone shows strengths in a lot of areas that have traditionally been weaknesses of previous generation Mi phones. However, one thing is still missing from the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro ...

The Mi 10 Pro is Xiaomi's first creation that can actually challenge current high-end smartphones and it presents itself as an impressive smartphone with a great concept. The Mi flagship smartphone from the first half of the year has closed the distance to the established 2020 smartphone elite in terms of the camera, system performance and features. However, this comes at a price, even when purchasing the phone from the Chinese manufacturer in Shenzhen that is known for its good price-performance ratio.

The latest generation of the Mi series is the beginning of a new era. With a marginal sales revenue price of 999 Euros (~$1,086) in Europe, Xiaomi has not only closed the gap between it and the Huawei P40 Pro or Oppo Find X2 Pro when it comes to the features but also in terms of the price, which definitely warrants some criticism - the Mi 10 Pro does not offer top-notch specifications in every category after all. For example, we regret the absence of a 120-Hz panel with a 1440p resolution on the datasheet, even though its practical use compared to the installed 90-Hz Full HD+ display of the Mi 10 Pro remains in question. However, this is not an unreasonable expectation in light of the asking price of almost 1,000 Euros (~$1,086). Furthermore, even Xiaomi's own mid-range phone Redmi K30 exceeds the refresh rate of the Xiaomi flagship and the 1080p resolution is neither optimal for the Mi 10 Pro's display which measures almost 6.7 inches diagonally nor contemporary for this price class. Although the display still appears sharp, the lower pixel density can be noticed when displaying text and it may be bothersome for demanding users.

I have always been very passionately interested in mobile technologies, especially smartphones. Being a tech enthusiast means the half-life of my devices isn’t exactly long, and being the latest hardware is not enough to suffice as the manufacturer and operating system play a minor role – the most important aspect for me is that the device is state-of-the-art. After posting for Mobi Test I joined Notebookcheck in 2016, where I have been pursuing my enthusiasm for technology by reviewing the latest smartphone, tablet, and accessory trends.

Even in my youth I was already very enthusiastic about technology, and as a result I started building PCs, optimizing them, and writing programs while I was still in school. When dealing with the inevitable hardware and software problems associated with computers, I was always relentless in my search for the necessary solutions. The compact forms of laptops and smartphones introduced further challenges in this regard. In my reviews for Notebookcheck I try to communicate as objectively as possible how well a device copes with these hurdles.
