the bottom line

Crazy-good value for money with performance khổng lồ match the competition.


If there is another segment in the smartphone market that’s growing to lớn be as competitive as budget smartphones, it has khổng lồ be the budget flagship space.

A few years ago, the low-cost flagship would be considered premium. But that’s now down in the food chain after the launch of the $1000 Apple iPhone X. Premium just got real when it broke the $1000 ceiling, và the cost of premium smartphones, be it iPhones or Android devices, has only risen.

But with the rise of ultra-premium smartphones, this sub-Rs 45k segment seems to lớn be flooded with options from various brands.

Once dominated by OnePlus (in the good old “flagship killer” days), literally every smartphone brand out there now has a phone in this segment.

In fact, it has become so important that even Xiaongươi (that usually sticks khổng lồ budget smartphones) launched a premium Mi 10 (Review) around May. And now, it has also decided khổng lồ step down the ladder and followed up with a low-cost alternative sầu, without the bells & whistles.

But wait, isn’t the ‘T’ Model an tăng cấp to the existing model?

Not, really. At least, not in Xiaomi’s case. If the price tag is any indicator, this is the lesser variant to the Mi 10. It’s more of what a OnePlus 8T is to a OnePlus 8 Pro (low-cost vs premium), instead of what a OnePlus 8 is to lớn a OnePlus 8T (low-cost vs upgraded low-cost). And that’s where things get really interesting.

Xiaomày basically delivers a similar level of performance for Rs 5000 less. And this makes it rather confusing for a buyer; would that extra money spent on the premium Mi 10 be worth it?

But there’s another angle khổng lồ this interesting điện thoại thông minh. Even if Xiaomi does not market it as a “flagship killer”, it’s pretty obvious that it is turning out khổng lồ be one. It not only offers more value for your hard-earned money, but also does a pretty good job at being a flagship that’s worthy of its “Pro” title.

Practical design

Glass back & display? Check! Metal frame? Check! Hole-punch display? Check!

There’s really little to lớn complain about the Mi 10T Pro’s thiết kế. It’s got everything you expect from a flagship smartphone and it’s got plenty of reasons lớn be a bit chunky (at 218 grams) as well.

There’s a massive sầu 108 MPhường camera at the baông chồng, paired with two other cameras, an LED flash and a display RGB sensor. It rises from the curved baông xã surface quite a bit, but not as noticeable as the Galaxy lưu ý trăng tròn Ultra’s camera bump that looks like a plateau rising from a plain. Despite the chú ý trăng tròn Ultra’s angular thiết kế and larger footprint, it still manages lớn be lighter than the Mi 10T Pro by 10 grams. But the rounded thiết kế of the Mi 10T Pro does make it more comfortable lớn hold than the Note 20.

Some of the hardware adds to the weight, but I’m glad that these choices have been made, because they vày make the Mi 10T Pro a better-performing device. Image: Tech2/Sheldon Pinto


Then there’s the 5000mAh battery and a liquid-cooling system (plus a graphite pad) that will make the Galaxy S20 FE go Cloud Mint with envy. Let’s also not forget that this is phone comes with an LCD panel which takes up more space than a self-lit OLED unit.

Some of the hardware adds lớn the weight, but I’m glad that these choices have been made, because they do make the Mi 10T Pro a better-performing device.

What I did not lượt thích about the mirror-finish ‘Cosmic Black’ option, is that the baông chồng is a fingerprint magnet. Thankfully, these can be wiped off easily, but I’d suggest getting the matte, ‘Lunar Silver’ variant instead (whenever it goes on sale).

An LCD display in a flagship?

Yes! Many of us aren’t fans of LCD displays. Apple’s iPhone XR was laughed at with its HD Liquid Retina display, but it was a lovely one. The XR also turned out lớn be the best-selling iPhone Model that year. In short, one can’t really judge a book by its cover.

The 6.67-inch display on the Mi 10T Pro is flat và in line with what OnePlus and Samsung have sầu on offer in this price range, just that it’s an LCD. But what it loses in deep blacks lớn the AMOLEDs, it makes up for with its smarts.

Xiaongươi calls it an ‘AdaptiveSync Display’. That’s kinh doanh talk for an IPS LCD display with a variable refresh rate. This one hits it out of the park, with a 144Hz refresh rate, something that no other smartphone brand apart from Hãng Asus (ROG Phone 3), currently offers in India.

What makes it so smart is not its refresh rate, but the fact that it intelligently controls the refresh rate depending on what you are working on.

If you are watching a movie or streaming a YouTube Clip, it cranks it down to lớn anything between 30Hz-60 Hz. If you are scrolling through your Instagram feed, it hovers around 144 Hz (anything for the gram) và will automatically slow down khổng lồ 50 Hz a few seconds after you start reading someone’s lengthy post. Start scrolling again, and it quickly shoots up to lớn 144 Hz. Jump into the built-in Recorder app & it sticks lớn a steady 60 Hz, while a game of hotline of Duty: Mobile saw it locking up at 90 Hz. Now, all this nhảy around with 7 variations may sound taxing & nonsensical, but it works wonders for this phone’s battery life. Something no device with a 1trăng tròn Hz display can clalặng.

As for the display itself, it’s probably the best LCD display on an Android điện thoại thông minh today. No, it’s not going khổng lồ beat a good AMOLED display, because it simply cannot touch those deep blacks. But for an LCD, it does come quite cthua kém.

There’s a ton of colour schemes lớn choose from, và I eventually settled for ‘Original Colour’ as it gave me the natural colours I wanted. It’s bright enough khổng lồ handle direct sunlight, and is super-sharp despite its FHD+ resolution and 395 ppi px density.

But as smart as it is, it’s not flawless. There is some mild vignetting around the hole-punch camera và the edges of the display. The bottom edge also showcases a really mild yellow tone before it bends into lớn the noticeably thiông xã chin. I also noticed the display shifting lớn a svào yellow tint when watching HDR videos on Netflix & YouTube. This is possibly a case of bad calibration, but it shows up only when watching HDR content. Hopefully, there is a software fix for this coming soon.

Performance you can feel

With a Qualcomm Snaprồng 865 chipset inside, this phone is well-equipped when it comes khổng lồ multitasking apps or gaming, & Xiaomi’s MIUI software does play a vital role in this experience.

MIUI 12 is not updated lớn the lademo version of Android 11, but is stuchồng at Android 10 (and will be there for quite some time). Everything from the handy floating windows (that you can drag down from a notification) lớn the shockwave-like nudge of icons when you uninstall an phầm mềm, make this OS worth a try, even if you aren’t a tín đồ.

There"s also a handy Dual Wake feature that first showed up on the Redmi chú ý 8 Pro. It lets users summon Google"s Assistant & Amazon"s Alexa simultaneously when using voice commands. It worked flawlessly, accepting commands from both assistants after using the respective sầu hot word.

The camera interface, for instance, lets you change the ratio, framing, countdown và switching khổng lồ macro camera with just two taps. Everything is basically where you want it khổng lồ be, & it’s also quite customisable.

My overall impression is that the software does a really good job, và is also quite practical in day-to-day use. Image: Tech2/Sheldon Pinto


While you would expect such software to lớn blover well with a 144 Hz display, I did come across some random hiccups from time khổng lồ time. However, these were quite rare.

My overall impression is that the software does a really good job, & is also quite practical in day-to-day use.

I also like the Game Turbo phầm mềm that lets you adjust everything from the touch sampling rate of the screen to lớn the anti-aliasing for each game. One detail to note is that the per-game GPU settings won’t necessarily affect the game’s performance, as these controls are usually down lớn the developer. In most cases, it did not override the internal graphics settings found in the game menus. The touch sampling rate adjustment does help by a large margin, & makes the display more sensitive sầu to swipes, especially when playing graphic-intensive FPS games that demand a lot of accuracy. This is one setting you need khổng lồ kiểm tra if you play a lot of FPS games, as the mặc định per-game settings may not be as sensitive.

I won’t go on too much about the gaming capabilities of this phone, as it runs most games lượt thích every other flagship with a Snapdragon 865 chipphối does (which is top notch). What it does better than most other smartphones, is cooling. The Mi 10T Pro remained fairly cool even when gaming at the highest possible settings.

Whether I was playing Asphalt 9 Legends with 60 fps enabled at ‘High Quality’ graphics, or điện thoại tư vấn of Duty: Mobile with ‘Very High’ graphics and ‘Max FPS’ (with Anti-aliasing turned on), the phone remained quite cool. This is possibly down to the liquid-cooling system and the graphite thermal pad, which helps with dissipating the heat generated by the chipmix. While the games above sầu will never touch the 144 fps mark (or make use of that 144 Hz display) when maxed out, there are more casual titles like Neon Flytron that vị, và they look gorgeous!

The dual stereo speaker thiết đặt may not sound as balanced as the one on the Mi 10, but they still sound fantastic, và a lot better than anything in this price range (or higher). The baông chồng panel vibrates quite a bit. This makes the gaming experience on this device very immersive, as you can feel the power of the rumbling, turbo-charged, 4.0-litre V8 inside the Aston Martin Vantage GTE in Real Racing 3.

A brilliant camera… with a few shortcomings

The Mi 10T Pro gets you a slightly better camera setup compared lớn the Mi 10. There’s the usual 108 MP.. wide angle camera, a 13 MPhường ultra-wide and an upgraded 5 MP. macro. What’s missing is the 2 MP.. depth camera và that decision comes at a cost of not-so-great edge detection when shooting portrait photos. The 20 MP. selfie camera of the Pro may look similar khổng lồ the one in the Mi 10 on paper, but it’s a different camera.

In short, Xiaongươi has cut a few corners with the Mi 10T Pro. But will you miss out on much?

Not really. Not for most of us, at least.

The primary camera shot some lovely photos (outdoors & indoors) during the day with a good amount of detail và excellent dynamic range. The sharpness is also just right. At times, the HDR imaging does go overboard, leading to lớn some visually great, but synthetic-looking photos.

Shooting fast-moving objects or kids can lead to a noticeable drop in detail indoors, and the lachồng of a dedicated depth sensor means edge-detection is not always spot on. The AI still pulls off a good job at edge detection when subjects are still or posing for the camera. But in most cases, I avoided the ‘Portrait’ mode as I was not happy with the results, & the larger 108 MP sensor delivered better, natural-looking bokeh thanks lớn the lens thiết đặt.

Cliông chồng here to see the camera samples:

Things did not change much in low light, and the camera delivers a good amount of detail, but falls short on sharpness và colour accuracy. Thankfully, there is an excellent ‘Night’ mode that gets the job done quite nicely, getting the colour tones right.

What I did not lượt thích was the ultra-wide. It took decent shots in broad daylight, but indoors, the photos were a murky mess. In low light, photos were not really usable, so it’s best to lớn avoid this camera as much as possible.

The 5 MPhường macro is an improvement over the 2 MP. macro camera from the Mi 10, with more resolution. It can go a bit crazy with the colour at times, but the output is quite sharp và usable when you want to lớn take close-ups of objects.

Switching to Clip, things look quite good. The stabilisation, sharpness và detail from the Mi 10 make it here, và it’s now all accessible at a lower price. 8K also makes it here, & the unique is surprisingly good, whether you are shooting in daylight or low light. After sunmix, things bởi vì get noisy, but the 4K footage did a better job at controlling the noise than the 1080p footage. This is strange & probably down to upscaling issues, thanks lớn the large sensor.

I also tried out the various long exposure modes, and they look và work great provided you have sầu a tripod. It’s just that they are shot at 12 MP (compared lớn the regular 20 MPhường binned output) và have sầu enough detail for that Instagram post with a bit of editing, but nothing more.

The 108 MP output is not as useful as it is on the Mi 10, as the photos don’t come out as sharp. The 20 MP. selfie camera takes sharp-looking selfies in daylight, but not as good in low light và even when using the ‘Night’ mode, so it’s best to turn on that display flash in dim lighting conditions.

Excellent battery life

Even with a 5,000 mAh battery inside, I did not expect great battery life from the Mi 10T Pro because of that high refresh rate display. Surprisingly, the display did an excellent job of keeping up with my demanding usage, which included an hour or more of calls, constant WhatsApp, Emails, at least 10-15 photos, an hour of đoạn phim streaming and an hour và half of gaming. I often ended up with trăng tròn percent left in the tank, which is pretty good for a smartphone with such a high refresh rate display. Xiaongươi does give you the option lớn stiông xã lớn 90 Hz (better battery savings) or 60 Hz (even better battery savings). But once you go 144 Hz, you never want lớn go baông xã.

I must note that my Review unit did not come with the advertised 33 W charger in the box, but I did have a 33 W Xiaomi charger lying around that was able khổng lồ juice up this phone in 1 hour. Image: Tech2/Sheldon Pinto


The phone also charges surprisingly fast, which is not what I expected with a 5000mAh battery & a 33 W charger. I must note that my Reviews unit did not come with the advertised 33 W charger in the box, but I did have a 33 W Xiaomi charger lying around that was able to lớn juice up this phone in 1 hour (may be a minute less at times). This is partly thanks to Xiaomi’s ‘Dual Split Fast-Charging’ system that charges the battery from two sides & is very different from what Oppo & OnePlus pull off by using two batteries instead of one.

Should you buy one?

It may not seem lượt thích a lot on paper, but I’d still piông chồng the Xiaomi’s Mi 10 over its Mi 10T Pro, because it’s a proper flagship & not a low-cost variant. It’s lighter, looks premium, features a classy curved 90 Hz curved edge OLED display with thin bezels all-round and even packs in 30 W wireless charging. There’s a better dual stereo speaker thiết lập và better imaging unique as well. And it’s priced eerily cchiến bại, with the 8+128 GB option going for Rs 44,999.

If your budget is limited lớn Rs 40,000, then there’s really nothing else that comes cthua khổng lồ the power và performance of the Mi 10T Pro. There’s also the 108 MPhường camera, 144 Hz refresh rate display & a 5.000mAh battery, that neither the OnePlus 8T nor the Samsung Galaxy Sđôi mươi FE can offer. They also cost a few thous& more and as of writing this review, neither offers a stoông xã (or almost stock) Android software experience either.

If you are upgrading from an older OnePlus or seek a slimmer phone, you will be happier with OxygenOS 11 (that’s upgraded khổng lồ Android 11, but not as stoông xã as it used to be) và the faster 65 W Warp charging on the OnePlus 8T. However, the camera performance may not be on par with the Mi 10T Pro, & that slimmer form factor, OLED display and faster charging does come at an additional Rs 3000. Still, it’s really hard khổng lồ ignore what you will be missing out on with the Mi 10T Pro, given the added features and the lower price tag.
