Oppo Find X2 Pro vs Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro: Which Is Better?

author Luis Silva (December 2020 Updated: May 2021 - 8 min. reading time)

You'll spend more on the Find X2 Pro, but it also is the better device of the two considering their specs.

It gives you better glass protection, a better display, and water-resistance. But the Mi 10 Pro adds a glass back and better battery life.

Anything else?

The Find X2 Pro also comes with a higher refresh rate display and more RAM (12GB vs. 8GB). But with the Mi 10 Pro, you can also get wireless charging and reverse wireless charging.

But how much more will I have to pay for the Find X2 Pro?

If you're considering a new and unlocked smartphone, you'll have to spend approximately $350 more.

Is it worth buying the Find X2 Pro in 2021?

The Oppo Find X2 Pro is clearly worth buying in 2021, even if there are better phones out there. Sure there are other devices like the Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max, but we should acknowledge this device, as it has good performance, a good camera, tons of storage, excellent glass protection, optical zoom, and fast charging.

Is it worth buying the Mi 10 Pro in 2021?

Just because the Mi 10 Pro was released last year doesn't mean I won't recommend it. You'll love it for its good performance, a good camera, good battery life, tons of storage, optical zoom, and fast charging. It doesn't mean you can't take a quick peek at the Mi 11, though.

Just keep reading if you want to know everything about them, how they stack up against their rivals, and how the tech experts evaluate their specs.

Xiaomi launched its Mi 10 Pro in February of 2020, while Oppo's Find X2 Pro arrived at stores one month later.

We've run down the specs, design, price, and much more in this guide to help you choose between the Find X2 Pro and the Mi 10 Pro.

You'll rarely (if ever) find these two with the same price tag. Keep this in mind when comparing both of them.

Look out for a "Tek-Score" in every section of this article. For a quicker analysis of how far they are from each other, we'll consider all their specifications. The global score will help you compare them to other phones if you aren't sure about these two.

The weight of each section

That score is research-based. It's from Globalwebindex.com about the most desired smartphone features by consumers. But you'll be able to define how the global score is composed based on your personal preferences. You can go there right now, but I encourage you to keep reading.

For additional information regarding our smartphone comparisons, check this FAQ.

There's a colored progress bar next to some items. It's for you to know how well they rival its direct competitors.

Which One Has The Best Performance?

Geekbench 5 scores the Mi 10 Pro 2% ahead of its rival in the multi-core ranking. Basically, you wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

We can classify both of them as high-end.

Both share the same SoC (the previous generation's Snapdragon 865), which means you should expect the same performance.

Not surprisingly, they also share the same GPU: last year's Adreno 650.

At least you'll get the Android 10 and ColorOS 7 on the Find X2 Pro, and the Mi 10 Pro has Android 10 and MIUI 11 at its core.

Which Phone Has The Best Display?

The Find X2 Pro is the winner here, and that's as clear as glass.

Would you prefer the 6.6" AMOLED display of the Mi 10 Pro or the larger 6.7" AMOLED panel of the Find X2 Pro? It all comes down to personal preferences for both the display type and size. AMOLED has perfect contrast and viewing angles, but its whites do hurt the battery life.

The display of the Find X2 Pro has a resolution of 1440x3168 Quad HD. The Mi 10 Pro, in its turn, has 1080x2340 Full HD.

No one likes to look at a shattered screen, so you need to know about their glass protection. The Find X2 Pro display is protected with a Corning Gorilla Glass 6. The Mi 10 Pro with a Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

One feature that I do value is the Always-On-Display, and they both have it.

If you set your brightness to auto, there isn't that much of a difference here. Both can do around 871 nits.

These two are capable of displaying HDR10+-compatible media.

If you're looking for high refresh rate displays, you should know that the Find X2 Pro does 120hz, and the Mi 10 Pro only does 90hz.

Given the Find X2 Pro, just know that all of its rivals can play HDR content and have an AMOLED screen, 75% offer you more than 60hz of refresh rate and have Gorilla Glass 6 or better, and 81% have an Always-On display.

Concerning the Mi 10 Pro, as a reference, 86% of its rivals can play HDR content. Plus, all have an AMOLED screen, and 95% have an Always-On display.

Which Phone Has The Best Cameras?

You should note that the Mi 10 Pro is in the neighborhood of 85% above its adversaries from its price range. Nevertheless, these two have similar scores, so...

What about its shooters? The Find X2 Pro's primary camera has a whopping 48 Megapixels sensor, with an aperture of f/1.7, a 25mm wide-angle lens, two flash LEDs, HDR abilities, and Optical Image Stabilization. Videos on its shooter have a maximum resolution of 2160p.

It also has a secondary 13 Megapixels camera with an aperture of f/3.0 and an astounding 129mm telephoto lens. And a third of 48 Megapixels (f/2.2) with a 17mm ultra-wide-angle lens.

Just so you know: You can take a 48 Megapixels photo, zoom in and crop, and get a sample with 12 Megapixels and 2x optical zoom.

There's also a generous 32 MP selfie camera with an aperture of f/2.4 and a 1/2.8" sensor.

DXOMARK tested this camera and gave it a score of 129. By including the telephoto and wide-angle lenses, it'll get 144 points. You can check their review if you click here.

I hope this helps: keep in mind that all of its rivals can record videos in 4K or more, have an ultra-wide-angle lens, and feature Optical Image Stabilization, and 94% feature a telephoto lens. Though none of them feature a macro lens.

The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro, in its turn, features a whopping 108 Megapixels camera with an f/1.7 aperture and a 25mm, wide-angle lens. Then it has three flash LEDs, HDR capabilities, and Optical Image Stabilization. It records videos at up to 4320p. Were you looking for a four-shooter smartphone? Here it is. The second shooter has 8 Megapixels (with f/2.0 and an astounding 94mm telephoto lens), the third has 12 Megapixels (f/2.0) with a 50mm telephoto lens, and the last one 20 Megapixels and a 15mm ultra-wide-angle lens.

Just so you know: You can take a 108 Megapixels photo, zoom in and crop, and get the same results as you'd get on a 27 Megapixels 2x optical zoom camera.

You can get selfies with 20 MP Megapixels. It has a lens with f/2.0 of aperture and a 1/3" sensor.

On DXOMARK's reviewing article, they gave this shooter 130 points. And if we consider the telephoto and wide-angle lenses, we end up with a score of 146 points. You can click here to check it out.

Furthermore, just to let you know, just like the other device, all of its rivals can record videos in 4 or 8K, have an ultra-wide-angle lens, and feature Optical Image Stabilization. Still, only 18% of them feature a macro lens.

If you're not a numbers person, we can tag these two as high-end.

Find X2 Pro Mi 10 Pro vs.

Who has the best frame?

If you're still undecided about them, the Find X2 Pro is a better choice based on its number of color options and water resistance.

Although they don't share the same height (165 mm / 6.50 inches vs. 162 mm / 6.38 inches), they share their width: 74 mm (2.92 inches).

They have about the same depth: 8 mm (0.32 inches) vs. 9 mm (0.35 inches).

The glass rear of the Mi 10 Pro makes it feel more like a premium phone. It weighs 208 g. (7.34 oz), while its rival is 9 g. (0.32 oz) heavier. If you want a big screen in a lightweight phone, the Find X2 Pro has a "weight to screen size" score of 3.0, which means it's kind of weighty for a 6.7 inches screen. Having said that, the Mi 10 Pro has 3.5, which suggests it's considerably hefty too.

If you like having color options, you can buy the Find X2 Pro in Black, Gray, Orange, Green, and Lamborghini Edition. The Mi 10 Pro, in its turn, comes in Alpine White and Solstice Grey.

These two share the same size, so there's not much to choose from.

What about a fingerprint scanner? Both manufacturers included it.

The Find X2 Pro is resistant to water up to 1 to 3 meters. Remember that it shouldn't be for over half an hour, and it's standby mode only. So don't take photos underwater.

Which has the best battery?

At 4260 mAh, the Find X2 Pro is the owner of the smallest battery, while the Mi 10 Pro features 4500 mAh. And as claimed by GSMArena, the Mi 10 Pro does have an advantage here.

If you do a full charge, this is how the Find X2 Pro comes out of it:

  • For 1 hour of talking, 1 hour of web browsing, and 1 hour of video playback, you'll end up with 82% of the battery charge.
  • After 1 hour of talking, 3 hours of web browsing, and 1 hour of video playback, the battery charge will be about 65%.
  • For 1 hour of talking, 1 hour of web browsing, and 3 hours of video playback, you'll likely end up with 70% of the battery charge.

And these are Mi 10 Pro's patterns:

  • By talking for 1 hour, browsing the web for 1 hour, and playing videos for 1 hour, you'll still have 84% left.
  • From 1 hour of talking, 3 hours of web browsing, and 1 hour of video playback, you'll get down to 71% left.
  • From 1 hour of talking, 1 hour of web browsing, and 3 hours of video playback, you'll likely end up with 74% of the battery charge.

Just be aware that the Mi 10 Pro can also easily defeat most devices. Actually, it may even be on our best-of listing.

The Find X2 Pro features quick charging at up to 65w, but the Mi 10 Pro does it too, at 50w.

If you love wireless charging, the Mi 10 Pro can charge at 30w/hour.

A nice add-on to the Mi 10 Pro is the ability to charge any Qi-enabled gadgets at 5w.

Quick charging is reasonably speedy with the Find X2 Pro's charger. That's rare because phones from this budget usually stay at around 40w/hour.

Fast wireless charging on the Mi 10 Pro is likewise a nice plus. You don't get to see it that much at this price range.

Which has more storage?

There isn't a winner here.

Oppo put 12GB of RAM and 256GB of built-in storage on the Find X2 Pro. Memory cards aren't welcome here, but with that much space, who cares?

On the Mi 10 Pro, you'll find 256GB of internal storage and 8GB of RAM. It also doesn't have a MicroSD slot, but 256GB is enough for most of us. Furthermore, chances are that you'll have more RAM but less storage from most of its opponents. They'd give you around 143Gb of storage and 8Gb of RAM.

Internal (GB) 256GB
Micro SD No No

Which is the most connectivity-friendly?

These two do look alike sometimes.

When it comes to connectivity, both phones have Bluetooth 5.1. Both devices also feature the standard NFC module.

If you got used to counting on the good-old 3.5mm headphone jack, forget about it. You may go for an adapter as a last resort, but it really isn't the same. There also are other options out there if you're not really leaning towards any of these. You'd have to pick a smartphone like the Sony Xperia 1 II.

Both have a single network variant: (LTE and) 5G.

Are you curious to know what their global score is? Let me point out the average of its competitors. They're at 7.6 (for the Find X2 Pro) and 6.9 (for the Mi 10 Pro).

Verdict: What Makes the Oppo Find X2 Pro Stand Out?

Both are astonishing devices in their own ways. I mean, both have flagship-level performance, displays, cameras, battery, and storage. All of that at a reasonable price. What else could you wish for?

Still, there are some minor differences between them.

The X2 Pro has higher refresh rates, higher DPI (+129 DPI), slightly better glass protection, is water-resistant, has 4 extra GB of RAM, and lets you choose between ceramic or leather back.

The Mi 10 Pro, on the other hand, has a traditional glass back, wireless charging plus reverse charging too.

But there are a few things that I don't consider, like price, brand value, size, resell value, OS (iOS or Android), user experience, updates, RAM (included on performance), battery to phone size, display size to weight, network (LTE/5G), and biometrics.


Progress bars explained

#1: A big red progress bar means that this value is way below the average. In this case, it's 28.85MP, and the iPhone XR is 16.85MP below the average.

#2: In this example, the XR is just 0.36mm below the average, that's why the red bar is almost unnoticeable.

#3: On the other hand, the SE 2 is 1.8mm above (hence, the green bar) the 26.2mm of average.

#4: Performance-wise, the SE 2 is well above the average (of 2512) for its price range. That's the reason the green bar is that long.


"Display size to phone weight" ratio explained

This indeed is a "display size to phone weight" ratio, but because every phone ended up somewhere between 0.0272 and 0.0421, I've amplified (adapted) those values so they would fit in a 0-10 scale. As of now, the best smartphone is the Samsung Galaxy A40, with 140g. (4.94 oz) for a 5.9 inch display. It got a score of 9.92. While the worse device is the iPhone 8 Plus, which weighs 202 g. (7.13 oz) and has a 5.5-inch display. It ended up with a score of 0.75.

Please, be aware that this score is subject to change if and when a new smartphone comes along that ends up being outside of this scale.


"Battery to device size" ratio explained

This score should give you an idea about the energy footprint of the devices you're considering. It reflects not only the hardware and the energy that it requires but also the amount of energy that the battery can deliver.

The major spenders on any device should be the display and the SoC. But everything from a notification led to its modems need to be optimized, or else, the OEM should simply include a bigger battery as a compensation. Unfortunately, it isn't always possible due to size limitations. But in the end, if a particular OEM can do a good job and give you excellent battery life on a small device, so should everyone else. That's why I've added a "battery to device size" ratio. But since the real scale went from 119 (for the Galaxy S10e, Snapdragon variant) and up to 164 (for the iPhone 7 Plus), I've decided to convert them so they would fit in a 0-10 scale, being 0 the worst device, (the iPhone 7 Plus) and 10 the one every OEM should look up to.

As an example, Apple did an excellent job on the iPhone 7. It has a score of 8. Despite having a small capacity, the hardware is well optimized, and it still gives you decent battery life considering its size. The iPhone 7 Plus, on the other hand, with those bezels shrinking its display size, clearly could've been the #1 in our top 10 list of best battery devices if Apple simply filled all that empty space with a bigger battery.

As a side note: I haven't included the dept of the devices in this formula because even if a device ended up being 1mm/0.03 inches thicker, it wouldn't matter that much to those who really value battery life.

Please, be aware that this score is subject to change if and when a new smartphone comes along that ends up being outside of this scale.



As of now, these are the rivals that were considered for each of them. They may change every time its prices are updated.

Battery results

The battery score is based on Gsmarena's endurance rating and is taken with a screen brightness of 200 nits and a refresh rate of 60hz.

Assumptions: The display is off during a call, there's a web page refresh every 10 seconds, and the video playback is in Airplane mode.

As you can see, most cameras sit between 1 and -1, while a few of them go up to 2 or -2. That means it's reasonable to assume other similar cameras that they don't review to, in the worst-case scenario, be anywhere from -2 to 2 points from the score that the formula gets.

For example: Given that the Pixel 4 got 117 points and that the Pixel 4 XL share the same year and camera specs, it's reasonable to expect a score of 117 too. But in reality, if they do review that camera, it may end up anywhere between 115 and 119.

Be aware that at DxO, they give a score based on their opinion, not based on any formula. That's why I think there's an odd difference of 6 points between the iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X. In theory, they should have the same camera.

I'm guessing that the Mi 9T Pro got a deviation of 7 points because they tested its Chinese variant (the K20 Pro).

Update: They just changed their protocol to include preview image evaluation and trustability. I'm keeping the old table (for now) for reference purposes, and I'll be adding a new one as soon as they review at least a couple of new mclass-range cameras.

You can expect the same (or a bit bigger) deviation for high-end cameras, but anything with a score below 100-110 should be taken with a grain of salt.

This is valclass for all cameras tested with the previous protocol. For those that they dclassn't test, the deviation may be up to twice as much.



With regards to AMOLED screens, sometimes OEMs claim higher maximum brightness. That's because an AMOLED screen can push its brightness progressively higher as its white area gets smaller.

These values are from the lab tests made by GSMArena, and their white test pattern takes up 75% of the physical size of the screen.
