Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 5G was released to commemorate its company’s 10th anniversary as a smartphone vendor. Its price in Kenya is in the region of 101,000 shillings and 104,000 shillings. Find out in this review if it brings with it much to celebrate.
108 MP Quad Primary Camera
According to DXOMARK, camera performance – in both video and photography is best with Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro. The test on that link was done comparing it with the camera performance of Huawei Mate 30 Pro and Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max which have spectacular photography. The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 5G features a 108MP wide shooter as its main lens with an 8 MP telephoto, 12 MP portrait and 20MP ultra wide lens.
At the top right corner of this flagship’s display is an in-display hole punch where its 20 MP, f/2.0, wide selfie camera is. After this section this article focus on the display of Mi 10 Pro 5G and other features it has. Many tech reviewers agree that 8K video recording’s time is here. But at the same time featuring it on a smartphone isn’t really necessary. Nevertheless, Xiaomi included ( [email protected]) 8K video recording on Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 5G.
DXOMARK concludes after its tests that, “If anyone still needed convincing that Xiaomi is one of the top camera designers in the mobile business, the Mi 10 Pro should definitely cement Xiaomi’s reputation.” It has good detail and a well-balanced texture/noise. Images are accurate and exposure is stable. Depth estimation is also very precise and detail is great in bokeh mode.
Performance, Snapdragon 865
In 2019 flagship phones were powered by Snapdragon 855. But now, in 2020 SD 855 almost feels obsolete (Note – It is not!) after the arrival of Snapdragon 865 which Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 5G comes with. SD 865 is Snapdragon’s ultimate intelligent mobile platform that will extend the way people see, hear and interact with the world around them. Thus far only Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, S20 Plus and Galaxy S20 are phones launched with SD 865. This should show you what sort of a flagship Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 5G is. Read this article on this subject here.
A Snapdragon 865 chipset was extremely necessary for handling image and video processing of Mi 10 Pro 5G and for 5G network’s technology. You can either but this phone with 256GB or internal storage with 8/12GB RAM or the maxed out 512GB with 12GB RAM version. The Universal Flash Storage herein is 3.0, designed for the likes of smartphones and digital cameras. Before we all forget Mi 10 Pro 5G is powered by Android 10.0 with MIUI 11 and has an Adreno 650 GPU. Finally, there is no support to expanding internal storage externally with it which by now, we have gotten used to with top-tier smartphones.
Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 5G’s Display
Alright so let me mention some display features this phone has. These are the kind of features that make a phone’s display stand out and make the experience of viewing it pleasing. These are DCI-P3
HDR10+, 90Hz refresh rate,180Hz touch-sensing and up to 500 nits brightness. I mean what more could you ask for? Yet, there is more! Besides being a slightly curved display it is also a 6.67 inches Super AMOLED panel. And need I really introduce Super AMOLED? Therefore I will rest my comments at that. One of the best smartphone displays in available is that which Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 5G has. This you can take that to the bank.
Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 5G has a non-removable Li-Po 4500 mAh battery. Its is a decent capacity alright quite generous I must agree. But it seems a bit mismatched with the camera performance and display’s refresh rate, SD 865’s execution and so on. Mixed usage with it should give at least a whole day on charge, which by all standards is acceptable. Charging it is via 50W fast battery charging or (and for the first time) 30W fast wireless charging. You can also use Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 5G to power bank/reverse wireless charge other phones at 5W power delivery.
