Interested Mi 10T Pro 5G First Impressions

Xiaomi recently launched the Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro in India, just each day after the OnePlus 8T was unveiled. The timing of the launch doesn’t seem coincidental and going by the aggressive pricing and features of those new models, Xiaomi’s intentions are pretty clear. The Mi 10T 5G and Mi 10T Pro 5G share nearly equivalent specifications, with the sole major difference being the first rear camera.

Xiaomi didn’t send me the retail box so all I actually got was the phone, with none of the accessories. this is often the Cosmic Black color, which looks very flashy but is additionally a huge magnet for fingerprints. There’s Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on the display, back panel, and camera module, which is usually appreciated. However, having glass everywhere also makes this phone incredibly slippery without a case.

The first thing that grabbed my attention was the sheer size of this phone. I’m wont to large displays, but the Mi 10T Pro 5G is additionally quite thick at 9.33mm and really heavy at 218g. The camera module protrudes quite a bit, causing the phone to wobble if you’re trying to use it laying down on its back. However, the general build quality and finish are superb. If you are not a lover of the glossy back panel, the Lunar Silver version is claimed to possess a matte finish.

The Mi 10T Pro 5G has stereo speakers, an IR emitter, a fingerprint sensor embedded within the power button, and a dual-SIM tray. there is no headphone jack or IP rating. Xiaomi has also removed the wireless charging feature seen within the Mi 10 5G, possibly to save lots of on costs.

Xiaomi has mainly focused its efforts on the Mi 10T Pro 5G’s display. It’s a 6.67-inch LCD panel with a Full-HD+ resolution, and it supports HDR10 video playback. The display also boasts of certifications from JNCD and TUV Rheinland for color accuracy and low blue light emissions, respectively. the most feature though is its 144Hz refresh rate. Xiaomi claims that the Mi 10T Pro 5G can dynamically change refresh rates from 30Hz all the high to 144Hz, counting on the sort of content being viewed. So far, the Asus ROG Phone 3₹ 49,999 (Review) has been the sole smartphone with a 144Hz refresh rate display in India, so it’s nice to possess more options.

The display seems to urge quite bright and color reproduction seemed good within the short time I have been using this phone. The 144Hz refresh rate makes system animations and scrolling through menus feel more fluid, but I do not think there are many applications yet which will cash in on such a high refresh rate. Stay tuned for the complete report in our detailed review, arising soon.

One thing I didn’t quite like about the Mi 10T Pro 5G is the mild vignetting or color fringing that’s visible around the edges of the display and the cutout for the selfie camera. I’ve only noticed this in some system menus so far due to the white backgrounds, but it isn’t apparent otherwise.

Just like the Mi 10 5G, the Mi 10T Pro 5G uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC and is only available in one configuration, with 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB of UFS 3.1 storage. There’s a 5,000mAh battery and support for 33W fast charging, as well as NFC and Wi-Fi 6. The phone runs on MIUI 12 which is feature-rich, and thankfully, I haven’t encountered many spammy notifications yet.

The Mi 10T Pro 5G features a 108-megapixel primary rear camera, while the Mi 10T 5G₹ 35,999 features a 64-megapixel sensor. this is often just about the most difference between these two phones. the rear of the Mi 10T Pro 5G also has 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle and 5-megapixel macro cameras. The selfie camera features a 20-megapixel resolution. The camera features are almost like what we saw on the Mi 10 5G, which include 8K video, manual video mode, etc. there is a lot to check here, then far, the specifications look promising.

The Mi 10T Pro 5G looks like a well-spiced smartphone that checks most boxes for its price segment. More importantly, Xiaomi has brought it to India at a reasonably aggressive price. it’s cheaper than most other Snapdragon 865 SoC smartphones with equivalent amounts of RAM and storage, like the OnePlus 8T₹ 42,999 (Review), Realme X50 Pro (Review), and iQoo 3₹ 29,990 (Review).
