Xiaomi has always impressed phones with extremely affordable prices but possesses top specifications, the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro is exactly such a product.
In the past, devices from Xiaomi were usually about 80 – 90% of the quality compared to Samsung and Huawei, but the price was only half. This year with Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro, Xiaomi even surpassed that 90% figure.

Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro has two outstanding features: 144Hz screen and 5,000 mAh battery. Both of these are also available on the standard Mi 10T. There is also a 108MP main camera with 1 / 1.3 large image sensor size, similar to that on Mi 10 Pro.
In terms of design, Mi 10T Pro is equipped with Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and back, aluminum alloy frame. The silver version impresses with a glossy finish, attractive, but prone to fingerprints. Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro has a fingerprint sensor located on the side along with the volume keys.
Behind is the main camera with an ISOCELL Bright HMX 108MP sensor made by Samsung. This is the same sensor that Xiaomi used on the Mi 10 Pro, while the Mi 10 Ultra has switched to the newer custom 48MP OmniVision sensor.
On the bottom of the extremely large main camera is a 13MP ultra wide-angle camera and a 5MP macro camera, one flash.
On the front is a 6.67 inch LCD screen, 144Hz frequency. Xiaomi equips this monitor with a technology called “AdaptiveSync”, which means it automatically switches between seven different refresh rates: 30/48/50/60/90/120 / 144Hz, depending on the What the application needs.
Inside is a Snapdragon 865 processor, 8GB of RAM and a 5,000 mAh battery. This year Xiaomi has also improved a lot in terms of price contact feedback, speakers and some other small features to bring a more complete experience.
Mi 10T Pro runs on Xiaomi’s MIUI 12 on Android 10, likely to receive the Android 11. update soon. MIUI is a heavier UX interface if compared to OxygenOS from OnePlus or Samsung’s One UI. This interface has many cool effects like when you delete an application, the application will explode, creating a small shock wave to surrounding applications. However, the installation page is too complicated and difficult to navigate.
Overall, in terms of interface Xiaomi has never been appreciated. If you like something simple, OxygenOS will give you an interface close to native Android, if you like an eye-catching interface that’s still light, with lots of cool features, One UI is definitely doing well. that.
By default, the primary sensor of Mi 10T takes excellent 27MP photos with natural depth of field thanks to its large 1 / 1.33 ″ sensor. There’s an option to shoot in 108MP mode, which is great in good lighting, as it allows to crop more detailed photos. Compared to before, Mi 10T Pro seems to have done better in terms of the sharpening algorithm.
At night, the main camera of Mi 10T Pro is capable of capturing light not really well, but if you turn on night mode, it will fix the problem.
In terms of zoom, even though I don’t have a telephoto camera, with 108MP resolution the digital zoom is not bad at all.
The 20MP and 13MP ultra wide-angle selfie cameras are both good quality in full light, but in low light the ultra-wide camera produces pretty bad quality. And this happens on most smartphones, except the Huawei P40 Pro.
With a starting price of $ 700 for the base 128GB variant and $ 760 for the 256GB version, the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro is one of the best priced in terms of what it offers.
