Xiaomi's Mi 10 Pro has the newest Snapdragon 865 chipset with 12GB of RAM. On benchmark tests, it stacked up well against other phones with the same chip. There's an always-on display and dark mode. Xiaomi's MIUI 11 is one of the more playful skins I've come across.

Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
, the Mi 10 Pro also supports HDR10+ and it offers a large color-space coverage. The high luminosity and great contrast make for a pleasant outdoor experience even in direct sunlight. The viewing angles of the OLED panel are excellent. Even from very steep angles, the perceived colors on the screen still look vivid and undistorted.

Sentiment Score[*] 77%
Reviewers from phonearena have found the following[***]:
The Mi 10 Pro has four rear cameras: a 108MP main sensor, a 20MP ultra-wide-angle camera that's also used for Macro shots and two telephoto cameras, one with 2x zoom and one with 3.7x zoom. The display is a 6.67-inch AMOLED with a resolution of 2340x1080 and a 90Hz refresh rate. Xiaomi's camera app and MIUI still need work, perhaps even an overhaul, before they can rival the best in the industry.

techradar[8]

Sentiment Score[*] 76%
Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro has some of the best speakers we've heard on a smartphone. You can power up the phone via 50W fast charging, or 30W wireless charging. The operating system is Android 10, with Xiaomi's MIUI interface laid over the top. There are quite a few preinstalled apps that you're unlikely to ever use.

Pros[**]
  • Gorgeous 90Hz screen
  • Great speakers
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Camera cut-out is annoying

Sentiment Score[*] 70%
Reviewers from tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The Mi 10 Pro 5G comes with Android 10 out of the box, though it also has MIUI version 11 installed over top of it. There's no app drawer, and so a swipe up from the shortcuts tray on your home screen brings up a page within Xiaomi's custom browser. Xiaomi's flagship is one of an endangered species of handsets in the modern era to feature an IR blaster.

Pros[**]
  • Excellent performance
  • Good battery life
  • Good cameras
Cons[**]
  • No IR blaster
  • No U.S. carriers

trustedreviews[10]

Sentiment Score[*] 85%
Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro runs Android 10 and runs MIUI 11. MIUI is a step in the right direction when compared to older iterations of MIUI, there are some things it gets right – finally, we have an optional apps tray. There is also a bit of instability. The camera shutter release occasionally wouldn’t register presses, and some touch sensitivity issues forced me to lock and unlock the phone to fix them.

Pros[**]
  • Excellent performance
  • Excellent battery life
  • Fast charging
Cons[**]
  • Middling cameras
  • No water resistance
  • No IP rating
