Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite: Overview of the test results
Xiaomi offers its Mi 10T Lite midrange smartphone in two storage variants that are both accompanied by 6 GB of LPDDR4x-RAM. The model with 64 GB of internal UFS 2.1 storage is available for about 280 Euros (~$343) and that with 128 GB, for 350 Euros (~$429). The brand new Snapdragon 750G octa-core SoC, which provides the 5G capability to the Xiaomi smartphone, is also included. As our test shows, the Snapdragon 750G practically plays in the same league in terms of speed as the Snapdragon 765G, which is currently used in many midrange smartphones.
IPS Display with HDR10 and 120 Hz
The Mi 10T Lite measures 6.67 inches and uses an IPS display with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels and with HDR10 support. This is combined with a feature that is rather rare in this price range: The display refresh rate can be increased from 60 Hz to 120 Hz, which makes navigation of websites and menus noticeably smoother. On the other hand, the Snapdragon 750G also ensures that the operation remains smooth even in the 60-Hz mode.
In our test, the Mi 10T Lite, which is equipped with Android 10 and Xiaomi's own in-house MIUI user interface, also scores some positive points with the endurance of its battery. Its capacity is 4820 mAh, providing a long battery life to the smartphone even in the 120-Hz mode. During simulated web-surfing, the smartphone lasts for more than 18 hours, and when playing videos, even more than 20 hours.
The 64-MP camera, which uses four lenses (16-MP main camera + 8-MP ultra wide-angle camera + 2-MP macro camera + 2-MP depth sensor) leaves a good impression. In daylight, it creates decent photos and it can even handle bad light conditions fairly well. Only the ultra wide-angle camera is unable to convince completely, since the colors of its recordings turn out a tad too intense and are blurry on the edges.
Hardly any Compromises Despite the Affordable Price
The Mi 10T Lite achieves its affordable price through making some compromises. However, in sum those are not very grave. For example, there is no IP certification and it only has a hybrid dual-SIM. The sound from the stereo speakers is also a bit thin. While the WLAN module is supposed to achieve WiFi-6 speeds, it is unable to go beyond fast WiFi-5 speed in our test, so it is by no means slow.
