Conclusion & End Remarks

As we’re wrapping up the review, the question is of course if the Mi 10 Pro is worth the buy over other contenders?

In terms of design, the phone is quite a departure from its predecessors and Xiaomi was able to substantially improve its build-quality. It’s a quite contemporary design in the sense that it’s another glass sandwich with curves corners and edges, but that’s just the natural most ergonomic design – and Xiaomi does this one well. It’s to be noted it’s a quite thicker and heavier phone than past Xiaomi phones, although it hides its size quite well.

The OLED display comes at a rather conservative 1080p and 90Hz, but it’s still an excellent display that gets plenty bright. There are a few quirks with the colour calibration, however Xiaomi offers a ton of customisation options for users to adjust it to their likings.

The 90Hz refresh rate isn’t up-to-par with some of the 120Hz competition out there but I don’t think that matters to much as the Mi 10 Pro is able to simply have this enabled all the time without much concern of a battery impact – the phone’s battery life is outstanding thanks to the efficient SoC and the big 4500mAh battery. The regular Mi 10 has an even slightly bigger battery so results there are certain to be even a little bit better.

Performance of the phone is excellent and is amongst the best devices out there on the market, although it wasn’t able to distinguish itself all that much from the rest of the crowd. Thermals of the phone are excellent, and you’ll have a hard time seeing any performance degradations due to throttling.

On the camera side of things, I felt the Mi 10 Pro punched below its weight and that’s simply due to the processing of the phone which more often than not was a miss. It’s something the company can and should be able to address via software, leaving the only other gripe about the excellent hardware being the somewhat lacking optics system of the main camera sensor. Overall, it’s still a good camera, but can’t quite compete with some of the best phones out there.

 
 

Overall, is the Mi 10 Pro worth it? It depends on the price, there’s no bad products, just bad prices. At the launch MSRPs of 999€ the 10 Pro I think certainly wouldn’t be worth the price as there’s other better alternatives out there such as the OnePlus 8 Pro. Currently the Mi 10 Pro however does go for around 760€ which is something a lot more reasonable and represents quite a fair price for the phone, with its cameras really being the only big weakness. Another issue seems to be limited availability, as this variant of the phone just isn’t as easily found as the regular Mi 10.

For users who don’t care too much about the more expansive camera setup, instead of the Mi 10 Pro, they can simply choose the regular Mi 10. This variant retains everything the Pro variant has except for the two telephoto modules, and a weaker ultra-wide-angle camera. This variant of the phone can currently as of writing be had for a super low price of down to 563€, which is actually considering that you’re not losing anything else, a pretty incredibly good value deal, which I would be able to recommend easily.

    Between the increased cost of the SD865, 5G antennas, and the 108MP sensor, it was inevitable. There's still the Redmi K30 Pro / Poco F2 Pro for $500 affordable flagship Reply

    Or the Realme X50 Pro 5G, which has better specs than the K30 Pro and Poco F2, for a similar price-point. Reply

    Depends on the market, here Realme X50 Pro is way more expensive than Poco F2 Pro.

    The only similar price point here is the Realme X3 Zoom, that have 855 instead of 865 and without 5G.

    And also, if you into custom rom development, Poco F2 Pro is the better choice hands down.

    Realme notoriously make it difficult to do custom rom on their device, maybe to prevent them flashing better ROM like AOSP? Idk.

    Would have loved to have read something about this feature.
