Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro: The test results in overview
Similar to Samsung, Xiaomi offers something suitable for almost every smartphone price range. The Mi 10 series is at the very top of the lineup. It offers flagship performance and AMOLED displays.
The Mi 10T smartphones are one step below. They are cheaper than the top models because they are equipped with IPS panels, but they aren't necessarily slower. The best example for this is the Mi 10T Pro, the best model of the Mi 10T series. It's on par with the Mi 10 Pro flagship in terms of performance because it uses the same SoC with the Snapdragon 865. The smaller 128 GB version of the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro costs around 550 Euros (~$671), while the Mi 10 Pro costs around 900 Euros (~$1,099) and even over 1,000 Euros (~$1,221) during the Christmas rush.
108 MP camera with optical image stabilizer
Besides its strong performance, the Mi 10T Pro also convinces with its 108 MP camera including OIS in the test; its Samsung HMX sensor is also used in the Mi 10 Pro. Not only does the smartphone take good pictures in daylight, but even in low-light conditions, it's still able to extract a lot of details from the photo subjects thanks to the fast sensor and the available night mode. Nevertheless, the manufacturer has cut corners here, because the Mi 10T Pro doesn't have an optical zoom.
Other plus points are the enduring 5,000 mAh battery that gives the Xiaomi a Wi-Fi runtime of almost 20 hours in the test. As a result, the smartphone should easily last a whole day of intensive use in everyday life.
Besides the IPS display, which does a very good job, by the way, there are only a few compromises in the Mi 10T Pro judged by high-end smartphone standards. For example, it lacks an IP certification as well as the possibility to charge it wirelessly. Overall, however, the advantages clearly predominate.
