Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro vs Mi 10T Pro: Are Both Of Them Pro?

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

You shouldn't have to pay much more for the Mi 10 Pro, but it's the smartphone you should pick.

It comes with a better display and more internal storage (256GB vs. 128GB).

What else stands out?

The Mi 10 Pro also comes with an AMOLED, Always-On display, better outdoor brightness, a telephoto lens (+81 mm), faster-charging speeds (50w vs. 33w), wireless charging, and reverse wireless charging. But with the Mi 10T Pro, you can get a higher refresh rate display.

But how much more will I have to pay for the Mi 10 Pro?

If you're going off-contract, it'll cost you around $120 more.

Is the Mi 10 Pro still worth getting in 2021?

You shouldn't ignore the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro at all, even in 2021. Sure, you can take a peek at other devices like the Mi 11, but we should acknowledge this device, as it has good performance, a good camera, good battery life, tons of storage, optical zoom, and fast charging.

Is it still worth buying the Mi 10T Pro in 2021?

Don't let its age scare you. The Mi 10T Pro still is a fantastic device as we go thru 2021. You can thank Xiaomi for its good performance, good battery life, fast charging, and 8K recordings. Although you can also check the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE.

Read on to know more about them, how they compare to similarly priced rivals, and how the industry is scoring their specs.

Introduction

Xiaomi introduced its Mi 10T Pro model in October of 2020. Meanwhile, Xiaomi's Mi 10 Pro started to sell in February of 2020.

In this article, we see how the Mi 10 Pro and the Mi 10T Pro compare to each other to help you decide and see which one of these is the right one for you.

Even though both phones have similar prices, the Mi 10T Pro should be more affordable. Although sometimes a promotion might appear and change that. Keep this in mind when comparing both of them.

Look out for a "Tek-Score" in every section of this article. We evaluate all quantifiable specifications to help you quickly identify how much they are far apart. We'll also provide a global score for comparison if you're interested in other than these two.

The weight of each section

That score is research-based. It's from Globalwebindex.com about what people want from their next smartphone. But don't let that daunt you. You can set it based on what matters to you. You can check this out now, or just keep reading until you get there.

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 compare with other smartphones with similar prices.

Which One Has The Best Performance?

Geekbench 5 scores the Mi 10 Pro 3% ahead of its sibling in the multi-core ranking. In real-world usage, the difference between them isn't significant.

Are you looking for the quickest phone around? The Mi 10T Pro is clearly above the average for its price range. The average score is 2384, but it got 3232.

It's safe to say that both of them can be tagged as high-end.

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

They also share the same graphics chipset: last year's Adreno 650.

At least you'll get the Android 10 and MIUI 11 on the Mi 10 Pro, and the Mi 10T Pro has Android 10 and MIUI 12 at its core.

Which Phone Has The Best Display?

The Mi 10 Pro is the title-holder here, and the difference is considerable.

They both share the same (AMOLED and LCD) display size: 6.6". You'll likely have set your preferences already on the display type and size. Most people seem to prefer AMOLED for its saturated colors and higher contrast.

The Mi 10T Pro has a higher-resolution 1080x2400 Full HD display, and the Mi 10 Pro makes do with a 1080x2340 Full HD panel.

Just a tiny drop may shatter your phone, so it's essential to know what kind of glass protection they have. Both displays are protected with a Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

There's a phone with an Always-On display here, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro.

If you don't manually set the screen brightness, the Mi 10 Pro can go up to 860 nits, but the Mi 10T Pro can go up to 230 nits below that.

Both phones do support HDR10+ videos.

If you're looking for high refresh rate displays, you should pick the Mi 10T Pro with its 144hz over the Mi 10 Pro that only has 90hz.

Considering the Mi 10 Pro, you should know that 86% of its rivals can play HDR content. Plus, all have an AMOLED screen, and 95% have an Always-On display.

For the Mi 10T Pro, as a reference, 92% of its rivals can play HDR content, 96% have an AMOLED screen, and 81% have an Always-On display.

Which Phone Has The Best Cameras?

By DXOMARK's standards, the Mi 10 Pro is also roughly 85% above other competitors from its price range. That's why between these two, it should be your choice too.

Flip the phones over, let's start the cameras' battle. The Mi 10 Pro has a whopping 108 Megapixels camera with an aperture of f/1.7, a 25mm wide-angle lens, three flash LEDs, HDR abilities, and Optical Image Stabilization. It can record videos at up to 4320p.

You'll find three additional shooters: an 8 Megapixels with an aperture of f/2.0 and an astounding 94mm telephoto lens. Another 12 Megapixels (f/2.0) with a 50mm telephoto lens. And finally, another 20 Megapixels and a 15mm ultra-wide-angle lens.

For your information: If you zoom in and crop a 108 Megapixels photo, you can get the same shot you'd get on a 27 Megapixels shooter with 2x optical zoom.

Want to know about its selfie capabilities? It has a 20 MP (f/2.0) shooter and a 1/3" sensor.

DXOMARK tested this camera and gave it a score of 130. And if you take into account the telephoto and wide-angle lenses, you'll end up with a score of 146. For a thorough review, click here.

Before moving on, all of its rivals can record videos in 4K or more, have an ultra-wide-angle lens, and feature Optical Image Stabilization. Nevertheless, only 18% of them feature a macro lens.

With its whopping 108 Megapixels shooter, the Mi 10T Pro's leading camera has an aperture of f/1.7 and a 26mm, wide-angle lens. You'll be getting one flash LED, HDR capabilities, and Optical Image Stabilization too. You can record videos at 4320p. You'll also get two additional sensors, one with 13 Megapixels, an aperture of f/2.4 plus a 13mm ultra-wide-angle lens, and another with 5 Megapixels for macros.

Did you know? By zooming in and cropping a 108 Megapixels photo, you can get the same results as you'd get on a 27 Megapixels 2x optical zoom camera, just like the Mi 10 Pro.

On the front, there's an f/2.2 20 MP camera and a 27 mm wide-angle lens.

The guys over at the DXOMARK labs scored this camera with 121 points. And by adding its wide-angle lens, that score goes up to 132. For an out-and-out review, check their article.

Winding it up, just so you know, all of its rivals can record videos in 4 or 8K and have an ultra-wide-angle lens, and 85% feature Optical Image Stabilization. That said, only 12% of them feature a macro lens.

Considering this score, we can classify these two as high-end.

Who has the best frame?

There isn't a clear winner, so don't worry too much.

The Mi 10 Pro has a height of 162 mm (6.38 inches) and a width of 74 mm (2.92 inches). Xiaomi's Mi 10T Pro is a bit taller, precisely 3 mm (0.12 inches), and a bit wider too, about 2 mm (0.08 inches).

When it comes to thickness, there's no difference here: 9 mm (0.35 inches). Be aware that the Mi 10T Pro is indeed big. About 13% bigger when compared to other phones at nearly the same price.

They both have a beautiful glass body. The Mi 10T Pro is 10 g. (0.39 oz) heavier than the other, weighing about 208 g. (7.34 oz). But because screen size also matters, I've come up with an adapted "display size to phone weight ratio" score. The Mi 10 Pro got 3.5, showing it's kind of weighty for its screen size. The Mi 10T Pro, however, has 2.6, which suggests it's considerably hefty too.

You can purchase the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro in Alpine White and Solstice Grey. And you can pick the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro in Cosmic Black, Aurora Blue, and Lunar Silver.

What about a fingerprint scanner? It doesn't matter because both have one.

For an all-weather smartphone, perhaps you should also consider the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus.

Which has the best battery?

At 4500 mAh, the Mi 10 Pro is the owner of the smallest battery, while the Mi 10T Pro features 5000 mAh. But by GSMArena's standards, there's no real difference between them.

If you charge it up, this is what you'll find out about the Mi 10 Pro:

  • From 1 hour of talking, 1 hour of web browsing, and 1 hour of video playback, you should have 84% of the battery left for the rest of the day.
  • If you do 1 hour of talking, 3 hours of web browsing, and 1 hour of video playback, you'll still have 71% left for the rest of the day.
  • From 1 hour of talking, 1 hour of web browsing, and 3 hours of video playback, the phone will have 74% left for the rest of the day.

And this is where the Mi 10T Pro ends at:

  • For 1 hour of talking, 1 hour of web browsing, and 1 hour of video playback, you'll be at 86% of the battery charge.
  • By talking for 1 hour, browsing the web for 3 hours, and playing videos for 1 hour, you'll still have 75% left for the rest of the day.
  • From 1 hour of talking, 1 hour of web browsing, and 3 hours of video playback, the phone will have 74% left for the rest of the day.

The Mi 10T Pro's battery is well above other similarly priced devices. It lasts 9% longer than the average on these tasks.

For your information, both of them can also easily defeat most devices. Do check our best-of listing.

Both phones support fast charging. You can charge the Mi 10 Pro at a maximum of 50w/hour and the Mi 10T Pro up to 33w/hour.

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

The Mi 10 Pro can also wirelessly charge other devices at 5w. These additional features do make a difference.

If you fancy quick charges, you can count on the Mi 10 Pro. Smartphones from this price range can only do about 31w.

Quick wireless charging must be one of Mi 10 Pro's most-loved features. You don't get to see it that much at this price range.

Which has more storage?

The Mi 10 Pro, for sure.

In terms of RAM, the Mi 10 Pro brings 8GB. In terms of storage, it has 256GB. There's no extra storage here, but you wouldn't need that anyway, right? Be aware that at this price segment, others have more RAM but less storage. They average at 8GB of RAM and 143Gb of storage.

The Mi 10T Pro, in its turn, has 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM. It also doesn't have a MicroSD slot, but 128GB is enough for most of us.

Which is the most connectivity-friendly?

These two do look alike sometimes.

Both devices feature the standard Bluetooth 5.1 module. Both phones also have NFC, so nothing special here.

If you love good-old wired headphones, you're out of luck because none of them included a 3.5mm headphone jack. You can try an adapter if you want, but the wireless buds are the way to go here. You can have it anyway if you're not really leaning towards any of these. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite can give you a headphone jack.

You can connect them to (LTE and) 5G networks.

Which is more affordable?

You can say the Mi 10T Pro is cheap, and in this case, it's also more affordable, but you should stay on top of any deals or price drops. Who knows what you can find. It currently also is 7% more expensive than the competition at this price segment. You can find them for about $447. The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro does feel more pricey, but it doesn't mean it's overpriced. But you should be aware that its rivals usually are roughly 7% below it.

If you still aren't sure about any of them, let's check how much worth you can expect.

Are you also considering other options? The global score can help. Let me point out the average of its competitors. They're at 6.9 (for the Mi 10 Pro) and 6.6 (for the Mi 10T Pro).

Verdict: What Makes the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro Stand Out?

If you really want to own a Pro device, you should go for the Mi 10 Pro, as it can give you so much more. The Mi 10T Pro's display can indeed offer you up to 144hz of refresh rates, but 90hz is more than enough, especially if you consider everything else the Mi 10 Pro offers.

Let's start by mentioning its internal storage: 256GB will make most of us very happy. Not only that, but it also adds an Always-on AMOLED display, with better outdoor brightness and a fantastic telephoto lens. It also stands out in the charging department by charging faster and having wireless and reverse wireless charging.

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.

Formula deviation

Since the guys at DxoMark don't review every camera out there, I've come up with a formula based on the ones that they do rate, so I could get an equivalent score for the ones they don't review. After testing it against these cameras, I got the deviation between that and their DxO score.

Device: DxOScore Deviation
Samsung Galaxy A50: 88 -1
Apple iPhone XR: 104 1
Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro: 108 -7
Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro: 87 1
Sony Xperia 1: 99 -1
Sony Xperia 5: 101 1
Samsung Galaxy Note 8: 100 0
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus: 126 2
Apple iPhone 8 Plus: 96 -3
Xiaomi Pocophone F1: 92 -1
Apple iPhone 7 Plus: 90 -1
Apple iPhone X: 101 3
Apple iPhone 11: 112 -1
Samsung Galaxy Note 8: 100 0
Samsung Galaxy Note 9: 107 1
Apple iPhone XS Max: 110 -2
Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max: 124 1
Samsung Galaxy S10: 124 2
Apple iPhone XS: 110 -1
Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus: 120 -2
OnePlus 7 Pro: 122 0
OnePlus 7T Pro: 122 0
Huawei P30 Pro: 125 -1

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.

Nits

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.
