The Mi 10 Pro is Xiaomi’s flagship for 2020 which is a worthy competitor to the other major players in the Android space. It relies on its 108MP camera to attract people’s attention, but the massive sensor doesn’t bring the massive gains in image quality people might expect.
The hardware package included: display, speakers, chipset, battery, all is excellent. Xiaomi hasn’t cut any corners with this model. But the same can’t be said for the software. The camera app and MIUI still need work, perhaps even an overhaul, before they can rival the best in the industry.
The design of the Mi 10 Pro is modern and predictable. It seems this year all the Android flagships are converging towards one look and this phone is no exception. Glass on the front and back, curved display edges, the hole-punch selfie camera on the front and four on the back.
The build quality is as good as any other flagship, no complaints there.
The display is a 6.67-inch AMOLED with a resolution of 2340×1080 and a 90Hz refresh rate. Yes, it’s not 1440p but even Samsung has its phones set to 1080p by default. The truth is, the difference is barely noticeable.
The display of the Mi 10 Pro is a joy to look at, and the software offers more adjustments than 99% of the users will need. You can manually adjust the white balance of the display or set it to automatic, which will adjust it based on your environment (like True Tone on iPhones), choose how saturated the colors are, and much more.
Cameras are what makes or breaks a flagship these days so naturally a big focus goes on them. The Mi 10 Pro has four rear cameras: а 108MP main sensor, a 20MP ultra-wide-angle camera that’s also used for Macro shots, and two telephoto cameras, one with 2x zoom and one with 3.7x zoom. The phone switches dynamically between the telephoto cameras.The 108MP camera is the main star of the show. By default, the photos it takes are 25MP; for 108MP you have to use the dedicated mode.
