Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro
Xiaomi has built a reputation for delivering impressive phones at affordable prices. However, it seems to have dropped one of these adjectives for the Mi 10 series in 2020, as the phones – and especially the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro – are not what most of us would consider “affordable”.
The professional’s high price offers many features that phone fans will love. The camera array consists of a 108 megapixel main snapper and two telephoto zoom lenses (one for long-distance photography, one for portrait mode) and an ultra-wide snapper. On paper and in real life, the camera is pretty good.
The phone has a lot more to offer, like quick charging, great “feel” (thanks to the slim back and gently curved screen), and some of the best speakers we’ve found in a smartphone that are just as good for music are like they are for games.
The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro
However, it’s hard to talk about all of this without mentioning the 2019 Xiaomi Mi Note 10 that came with many of these specs and design flourishes, but at half the price. Does this question the high price of the Mi 10 Pro? It sure does.

In general, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro appears to be a great phone at a questionably high price. If it’s been a while and the cost of selling or decreasing over time is definitely worth considering picking up.
Editor’s Note: We were unable to test the 5G features of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro because the corona virus lock prevented travel to 5G-connected areas.
However, 5G speed depends more on the network than on the device. Therefore, 5G performance is not necessarily an indication of the functions of a phone. We also had limited opportunities to test certain camera functions.
The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro screen has a diagonal of 6.67 inches, so it’s a pretty standard size for top-end phones in 2020, but as a super AMOLED panel with a resolution of 1080 x 2340, it can’t quite match the OnePlus 8 Pro or Oppo Find X2 Pro, both with 6.7-inch screens and a resolution of 1440 x 3168.
The display has a refresh rate of 90 Hz, which is quite respectable when many phones are still at 60 Hz, and it makes browsing through apps and scrolling on social media a bit smoother. With some of this year’s top-end phones, including the Samsung Galaxy S20 with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, the Xiaomi phone also remains somewhat behind.
