2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 16+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Great-looking, well-refined and trendy "glass sandwich" design - the Twilight Grey looks vastly from metallic to blueish and even slightly green, depending on light and angle and the Coral Green looks even more visually pleasing
  • The fronts houses a gorgeous, modern curved edge-to-edge display with a single cutout for the selfie camera
  • The Mi 10 fits snugly and securely in hand, with the metal frame perfectly shaped to provide a little bit of extra grip
  • The useful IR blaster is on the top
  • The in-display fingerprint reader and face unlock work great, both snappy and reliable
  • The matte finish on the back of the Mi 10 is a real grease magnet - it is also very slippery
  • No official ingress protection rating
  • The two speaker grills on either side of the phone are easy to cover up while holding the device horizontally

Display

  • A stunning, punchy 6.67-inch, Super AMOLED display, which can stand its own in terms of quality compared to the competition
  • The 90 Hz refresh rate makes the visuals and animations, incredibly polished and smooth (though, more flagships are switching to 120 Hz panels)
  • The display is sufficiently bright for use in direct sunlight
  • Mi 10 is certified for HDR10+ and covers Widevine L1 DRM, meaning, you can enjoy all the HDR content, at maximum resolution from any streaming service you want and have a great experience while doing so

Software

  • The MIUI 11 on the Mi 10 is one of the more polished and refined Android skins around - you will get a plethora of customisation and features, the animations are fast and looks great with the 90 Hz display

Performance

  • Powered by the king of the hill in the Android world, the Snapdragon 865, this is about as fast as things currently get in the Android realm

Camera

  • A very good quad-camera setup - consisting of a 108MP primary lens, a 13MP ultra-wide, a 2MP macro and a 2MP depth sensor
  • In daylight, the Mi 10 makes great use of its potent main camera, shots come out with abundant detail, excellent dynamic range, and very mature colour science - the Ai mode can automatically pick-up and apply little tweaks for the detected scene, and works well
  • On a good sunny day, the ultra-wide camera does its main task of capturing more of the scene pretty well (though, quality isn't as good as the main camera)
  • The macro camera works well and the shots are perfectly usable, especially for social media, where they are likely to end up anyway
  • Portraits are great, even without the portrait mode, the primary camera is capable of producing very natural looking bokeh - portrait mode takes things to the next level, subject separation is on point and Xiaomi has packed the Studio lighting section full of interesting lighting effects
  • In lowlight, shots have plenty of detail, contrast, and nice colours - definitely a flagship-worthy performance
  • There's no telephoto camera, but the Mi 10 is still quite capable at capturing 2X zoom photos, thanks to the large 108MP sensor - images come out excellent in both daylight and low-light
  • The selfie camera is decent, it producing perfectly usable Instagram worthy selfies
  • Video recording is very good too, it is capable of capturing 8K video - you get video image stabilisation pretty-much all around, except at 8K resolution

Audio

  • Excellent stereo speakers - the Mi 10 sounds amazing

Battery

  • Excellent battery with the 4780 mAh battery inside - it can last up to 2 days of moderate use
  • The 30W fast charging is plenty fast - a full charge will take around 72 minutes

Verdict

  • The Mi 10 is a well-rounded flagship device and sits right between the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro and comes out as an excellent option if you're looking for some great cameras, excellent battery life and a stunning display
  • Having said that, OnePlus 8 offers better value as it has everything Mi 10 has at a much lower price, with an unmatched software experience, except the camera quality - and the OnePlus 8 Pro has the added benefit of the 120 Hz display and the same excellent camera quality
