INTRODUCTION

Xiaomi had an excellent 2019 between the Mi 9, Mi Note 10, and various Redmi devices, and it began 2020 with the Mi 10 series in March. These phones (save the Mi 10 Lite) have top-end Snapdragon 865 chipsets, 5G connectivity, 108MP main cameras, and decent AMOLED screens.

The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 5G is that the most premium of the bunch with a far better quad-lens camera array than the Mi 10, more storage, and faster-charging capabilities. There are relatively few differences between this and therefore the base device compared to, say, the Samsung Galaxy S20 and S20 Plus, but the Mi 10 Pro should still be the stronger device.

In fact, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro could find yourself being the company’s most premium phone of 2020, given precedent. Below you will find our first thoughts thereon.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 5G release date and price

The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 5G’s sale date depends on the country. It's launching on either April 7 or April 15 in various European countries, but it’s set to return to the united kingdom and other regions at an unspecified later date.

In terms of price, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 5G costs €999 (roughly $1,090, £880, AU$1,790), so it’s a decidedly premium phone - Xiaomi seems to be shrugging off the ‘mid-range’ mantle of its previous Mi phones.

As some context, the Xiaomi Mi 9 and Mi Note 10 from 2019 cost £549 (roughly $680, AU$1,120) and £459 (around $570, AU$940) respectively, which is certainly tons less, and that’s curious given the latter phone had many the features of the Mi 10 Pro 5G.

Design and display

The Xiaomi Mi 10 has many design traits in common with the aforementioned Mi Note 10. Its display is curved, although to not an equivalent degree as many top-end phones, and on the rear, there’s a reasonably prominent camera bump housing about one among the lenses (the other is in its own protrusion just below).


On the proper edge, there is a volume rocker and power button, both of which feel easily reachable without employing a second user, and there’s a USB-C port on the rock bottom of the device (although no 3.5mm headphone jack).



In general, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 5G feels pretty easy to use in one hand, despite the very fact its dimensions of 162.5 x 74.8 x 9mm aren’t exactly those of a ‘compact’ phone. It did feel a touch slippery, though.

The display may be a 6.67-inch AMOLED screen with a 1080 x 2340 resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. It’s choppy only by a punch-hole cutout within the top left corner, so its front-facing camera is within the same position because the Huawei P40, Oppo Find X2, and more phones, and this position seem to be a growing trend.

In general, the screen is sort of good-looking, and that we particularly admired the contrast ratio and color accuracy. We also noticed that the battery drain wasn’t regrettable when using all the bells and whistles of the screen, and therefore the always-on display didn’t draw the maximum amount of power as we expected either.

Features and specs

The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 5G features a Snapdragon 865 chipset, the foremost premium processor available to Android handsets at the time of the phone's release, and as a result, it’s a reasonably powerful device.



In fact, it nearly matched the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra’s multi-core benchmark scores, so it should perform similarly for demanding tasks like gaming and video editing.



You can devour the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 5G with either 8GB or 12GB of RAM, alongside 256GB or 512GB of storage.

The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is additionally a 5G phone, another perk of the selection within the chipset, although we didn’t get to check the phone’s connectivity speeds. Saying that how snappy a connection tends to depend more on the network than the device.


The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 5G’s battery is 4,500mAh, which may be a fairly decent size, although just slightly smaller than the bottom phone’s size. In our time with the phone, it felt well optimized to affect the fairly demanding screen technologies, as previously stated, although battery drain for gaming and watching content felt more in line with what we’re wont to in other devices.


Powering over here is completed with snappy 50W fast charging, which is certainly quick, as after only 10 minutes of charging the phone’s battery was 27% higher. also as that speedy wired capability, there’s 30W wireless charging and 5W reverse wireless charging, which allows you to jazz up other devices using the phone as a charging mat, although we didn’t manage to check these cable-free options.


The OS on the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 5G is Android 10, the newest of Google’s software, with Xiaomi’s MIUI 11 laid over the highest. like all Android overlays, MIUI is especially an aesthetic change with icons and options looking different.

Two of our biggest MIUI gripes are back here though. There’s quite a little bit of pre-installed bloatware, including multiple games and a couple of other apps like WPS Office and LinkedIn.

In addition, there’s no support for gesture navigation, and while your mileage thereupon may vary on other handsets, it’s certainly tons quicker than the standard three-button option.

One other issue we had is that the in-screen fingerprint scanner felt noticeably slower than others we’ve tested.

Cameras

The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 5G has four rear cameras, helmed by a 108MP main snapper. Backing this up maybe a 20MP wide-angle, 8MP telephoto (5x optical zoom) and 12MP portrait (2x optical zoom) camera.



While we didn’t get to check the phone’s cameras the maximum amount as we’d have liked (thanks to the UK’s lockdown), we did give them a quick whirl, and may also ask our experiences with the Mi Note 10, which has an almost identical camera arrangement, although software improvements may make the cameras on this newer phone slightly better.



The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 5G’s main camera takes shots that are bold with good contrast and accurate-looking colors, and this feels the maximum amount the work of the AI scene optimization because of the camera itself. However, this camera was a touch slow to specialize in compared to the most cameras on other flagship devices.



The ultra-wide camera took decent pictures too, with little to no distortion at the edges, and this snapper is additionally liable for the macro mode. Macro images looked excellent and came into focus very quickly, and we’re glad this shooter was utilized in place of the Mi Note 10’s dedicated macro lens.


We didn’t get to check the camera in the least, but this was perhaps our favorite a part of the Mi Note 10’s snapper array, so if nothing’s changed here it should be a hugely versatile and accomplished snapper.

We briefly tested the zoom camera, but not enough to offer any proper verdict thereon. It supports 5x optical, 10x hybrid and 50x digital zoom, although at only 8MP its sensor isn’t exactly high-res.



The front-facing camera is 20MP, and it took decent selfies, but in portrait mode, it really shone by accurately blurring backgrounds and highlighting the proper parts of the face.

Xiaomi made some extent of detailing videography elements of the Mi 10 Pro at launch too, so we took a glance at them. you'll shoot in resolutions from 720p to 8K, so this phone is now during all|one amongst|one in every of">one among many who can shoot in a resolution so high that the majority people won't have a tool which will properly display it. you'll shoot at 30fps or 60fps, although 8K only works at 30fps.

There are many options to tweak your video shooting experience, with a 21:9 mode (the ratio of movies), moving object tracking, beauty and color filters, and auto-stabilization. We were also pleased to ascertain the movie mode could shoot in 1080p, which is way from a given for several phones.

Early verdict

As you’ve probably garnered from this hands-on review, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is extremely similar in some ways to the Mi Note 10, and despite a couple of notable new features like 5G, the chipset and a far better display, it remains to be seen if the newer phone deserves to be near double the worth.


Saying that there do seem to be many features of the Mi 10 Pro which may show their face the more we test because the video shooting modes seem promising and therefore the battery optimization software and charging speeds promise to actually reduce the burden of regularly powering up the phone.


Stay tuned for our full Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro review coming soon, once we’ve properly put the phone through its paces to ascertain if it can justify its high price.
