The launch of the Xiaomi Mi 10 series should be a grand launch event. However, although the press conference was changed online and used pure online live broadcast, it has no effect on the popularity of the Xiaomi Mi 10 series. This is due to the strong product power of the Xiaomi Mi 10 series, as the flagship of the Xiaomi brand, and at the same time, It is also the flagship model of the domestic brand for the beginning of the year. The flagship configuration and experience of the Xiaomi Mi 10 series is enough to allow it to take the lead.
Lu Weibing, vice president of Xiaomi Group, once said on Weibo that the Xiaomi brand’s competing products are Huawei, and the Xiaomi digital series is benchmarked by Huawei’s P series. So today we will take a look at how the newly released Xiaomi Mi 10 series mobile phones perform.
What we got this time is the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 8 + 256GB version, and the Xiaomi Mi 10 series is divided into Xiaomi Mi 10 and Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro. The general configuration is the same, but in some details, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro configuration To be even better, it can be said that the positioning of Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is also the top flagship in Android phones.
Design & Appearance
In terms of appearance design, the first impression of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is exquisite. Compared with previous Xiaomi phones, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is more careful in polishing details, such as a narrower forehead and chin, and a lighter and thinner metal. Frame. To a large extent, this exquisite feeling comes from the addition of hyperbolic screens. The hyperboloid screen not only makes the phone look thinner and lighter, but also uses this edge to bend inward to disperse the weight of the phone in the user’s palm to the greatest extent, improve the grip, and squeeze it into the valuable body space. More components.
When it comes to weight, we must not talk about the grip of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro. The weight of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is 208g. Compared with Xiaomi Mi 9, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro has a clear “thickness” when held, but there is no Xiaomi. CC 9 Pro is so exaggerated. Considering that the inside of Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is packed with Snapdragon 865 and external 5G baseband, and it contains a large battery of 4500mAh and liquid-cooled VC and other space-consuming components, the overall weight, and thickness of Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro are also expected. in,
Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro has two color combinations of starry blue and pearl white. Both use AG frosted glass. The body of this frosted glass is smoother and more delicate in touch, with less damping, and due to the increased haze on the glass surface. which can effectively reduce fingerprint stains on the body. We got the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro in the starry blue version. The blue color of this starry sky is relatively light. Compared with many blue mobile phones, it is much more “elegant”. There is no pure blackness and stark blueness in the starry sky. It is like the evening of the summer, the deep layer of the blue ocean and the junction of the sky. Mist, but the light spot on the surface of the phone is very obvious, which is more suitable for boys. The camera layout design on the back of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro and Xiaomi CC9 Pro can be said to be exactly the same, with the camera module protruding from the phone.
The center of the bottom of the back of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is Xiaomi’s Logo and a 5G logo. In the layout of the phone buttons, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is also going to rough and fine this time. There are no buttons on the left, and only the volume and power buttons are reserved on the right. There is also an optical fingerprint button hidden under the screen, and it uses an ultra-thin design. The Z-axis thickness is only 1/10 of that of mainstream optical fingerprints, leaving enough space for the internal battery stack to unlock efficiency and fault tolerance. There are no problems with it.
The screen of Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is a 6.67-inch Samsung custom hyperboloid AMOLED screen. The hyperboloid design makes the borders on both sides look very thin, the upper and lower borders have been further narrowed, and the overall appearance is more refined. The front camera’s hole drilling is more to the right than the mainstream position. On the desktop and application homepage that is not the first screen, there will be a time display next to the hole drilling to ensure that the status bar is more balanced. It is a pity that this screen does not use 2K, but maintains a resolution of 2340X1080P. But in other respects, its quality is still very hardcore.
For example, this screen has a refresh rate of 90Hz and a sampling rate of 180Hz. It is very smooth in daily touch operations and system animation. It’s perfect for brushing iGeekPhone and spicy food. The screen itself uses the latest E3 luminescent material, which can achieve a peak brightness of 1120 nits, and the bright light excitation brightness can reach about 800 nits. With the front and rear dual photosensitive units, it will also intelligently display the content under strong light. The contrast is enhanced to make the screen clearer.
On the color of the screen, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro has DCI-P3 color gamut display, 5000000: 1 contrast ratio, HDR10 +, and professional factory screen color calibration. The average Delta E of the screen is only about 1.1 to meet the requirements of screen color standards. The more unique point is that Xiaomi’s advanced color mode allows users to customize the RGB color space, HVS color space, and contrast, gamma, and other options. This is rare in mainstream friend products. In general, the look and feel of this screen is much better than its predecessors, especially when there is no obvious color temperature change when the color style is switched, which is relatively rare. Of course, the primary color mode is still as warm yellow as Apple’s primary color display.
In the display adjustment of Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro, many rich and practical options are also provided. For example, the screen refresh rate can be switched back and forth between 60Hz and 90Hz, the user can choose whether to turn on DC dimming, or use the dark mode to make the screen more power-saving, browse the phone at night to protect the eyes, and even allow users to set which applications are full-screen individually. A show which apps have bangs turned on. An adaptive status bar like we do a very good application, naturally, there is no need to display bangs.
In fact, in addition to the feel and the look and feel of the screen, the two most memorable experience improvements of Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro this time are the symmetrically designed ultra-linear dual speakers and the horizontal linear motor. The sound quality is much better than the previous Xiaomi mobile phone, and the vibration feel is adjusted just right, allowing people to enjoy the subtle touch brought by each vibration feedback. And the vibration and amplitude provided by different interaction behaviors are also different.
Hardware & Performance
Stacking is the biggest feature of Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro this time. Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor, full line of LPDDR5 memory, NSA + SA dual-mode 5G, minimum 8 + 128GB storage combination, UFS3.0 flash memory specification, support for 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 technology, equipped with 4500mAh battery and 50W flash charge, 30W Wireless flash charging, with multi-function NFC, horizontal linear motor, P2i level waterproof, infrared remote control and other functions.
The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is equipped with unprecedented heat dissipation specifications. The built-in 6-layer graphite structure covers the entire backplane. The graphene heat dissipation layer is also added in the middle of the double-layer motherboard structure. There is also a VC heat equalizing plate of 3000m㎡, which is equipped with a large amount of copper foil Thermally conductive gel to ensure that heat can be evenly dissipated everywhere in the phone. In short, the hardware and performance are definitely the focus of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro this time.
Snapdragon 865 processor, like Qualcomm’s new generation flagship SOC, has significantly improved the performance of CPU, GPU, and AI. First of all, it uses TSMC’s 7nm process technology. It has one A77-customized Kryo 585 Prime super core with a main frequency of 2.84Ghz, three A77-based Kryo 585 Gold cores with a main frequency of 2.42Ghz, and four more. Kryo 585 Sliver small core with A55 architecture. This 1 + 3 + 4 combination has a 25% increase in CPU performance and a 25% reduction in power consumption compared to the previous generation of Snapdragon 855 processors.
In terms of GPU, the new Adreno 650 graphics processor also has a 25% performance improvement and a 35% reduction in power consumption compared to the previous generation Adreno 650. In terms of AI computing power, the Snapdragon 865 uses the fifth-generation AI Engine computing engine, which has four times the computing power of the Snapdragon 855, and the overall AI performance is more than twice that of the 855 models. In terms of actual functions, the stronger AI performance allows Xiaomi Mi 10 to provide a better experience in terms of video blurring, image recognition, automatic scene optimization for photography, and voice recognition.
In addition, the improvement of 5G network performance is also one of the highlights of Snapdragon 865. Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro has a built-in Qualcomm X55 modem and supports SA + NSA dual-mode 5G networking technology. The frequency band covers multiple 5G frequency bands such as n1, n3, n41, n78, and n79. The theoretical peak download speed is up to 2.92Gbps. In terms of Wi-Fi, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro supports the new sixth-generation 802.11ax, which can implement 8×8 MU-MIMO multi-port access technology, soaring upload, and download speeds, and reducing network congestion during multi-device transmission. By the way, Shui Shui also measured its 5G performance. Due to the impact of the epidemic, I ca n’t go out, and the 5G coverage where I live is not very ideal. In addition, the water and water 5G package only supports the theoretical upper limit of 500Mbps. The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro ’s results were 625Mbps download speed and 41.7Mbps. The upload speed is in line with the level that 5G mobile phones should have.
In terms of running points, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro’s Antutu score is 526172 points, GeekBench single-core score is 3676 points, the multi-core score is 11,448 points, AndroBench’s read and writes speed is also completely UFS3.0 standard. So in terms of theoretical performance, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is definitely the first gradient.
On the actual game performance of Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro, the Peace Elite can turn on ultra-high picture quality and ultra-high frame count. The highest frame number in the game is 51 frames, the average frame number is about 42 frames, and the game consumes 8% of power in 30 minutes. Bad 3 With the highest picture quality and special effects turned on, the Galaxy Fleet MotoGP can also stabilize at 60 frames, the average frame number is about 58 frames, and 30 minutes of game power consumption is 9%. After running two games for 30 minutes, the temperature of the surface of the phone is basically between 35-37 degrees, there is no need to worry about the burning sensation caused by playing the game.
The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro series has also upgraded the experience of the game assistant this time. The Game Turbo technology on the hardware cooperates with the game acceleration to ensure that users can play with the best performance and network environment when running the game. In terms of software, the UI and functions of the game space have been further improved. Users can generate shortcut icons for game acceleration on the desktop and enter the game space to manage various games that have been downloaded at any time. You can also slide the prompt Bar in the upper left corner of the screen within the game, Call out the shortcut game toolbar, real-time modification of various settings and convenience features.
In terms of image performance, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro has adopted a 100-megapixel four-camera combination this time. The main lens uses a 1 / 1.33-inch oversized photosensitive element and f1.69 oversized aperture, and it is an 8P lens group, which supports OIS optical image stabilization. Such parameters are indeed rare on mainstream smartphones. The other three lenses are ultra-telephoto lenses that support 10x hybrid optical zoom, 12-megapixel 50mm focal length portrait lenses, and 20-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lenses. Among them, the ultra-telephoto lens also supports OIS optical image stabilization, the portrait lens has full-pixel dual-core focusing technology, and the ultra-wide-angle lens can achieve a large 117-degree field of view.
The software in the camera this time focuses on supporting three major features. One is Super Night Scene 2.0. When shooting dark light, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro will get more dark details based on the RAW algorithm. The second is AI scene recognition and new content. The perceptual deep neural network analyzes the brightness, color, and even composition of the picture in real-time, and then enhances the picture with “pixel texture” through global pixel-level image quality enhancement. Third, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro supports the HEIF photo format, which can ensure the quality Under the premise, save 50% of the photo volume and store more photos.
In terms of video, Xiaomi Mi 10 series has added Vlog video mode, which has built-in rich templates, auto-moving animations, transition animations, popular soundtracks, and real-time voice to text functions, which can help users easily create Vlog short videos. The real-time video blurring function can make the characters more prominent, and the user can manually adjust the blurring level to achieve the most satisfactory effect. The front camera is 20 million pixels and supports wide-angle panoramic mode. You can compose a wide-angle large panoramic photo by moving the phone position and taking three pictures.
Because of the recent epidemic and the bad foggy weather in Qingdao, outdoor proofs during the day are basically unavailable. Therefore, we analyze the performance of the outdoor night view part here, and please understand it.
First of all, in a well-lit environment, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro’s color performance is very good, it is true and not dense. At this time, the sky still has some mist, but the purity of the sky part of the picture is also good. The glare control is reasonable, and thanks to the advantages of high pixels, whether it is the dead tree branches near or the details of the doors and windows of the distant building, it is clearly identifiable.
On the corner across the road, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro accurately reproduced the scene at that time. The mist in the sky was yellowed by the warm light of the street lights. The ground just after the light rain looked wet. , Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro shows strong metering and exposure control, the text is clear but not exposed, and there is no overflowing light spot. In terms of color, AI scene recognition has appropriately increased some contrast, making the picture less gloomy.
Another example is this picture. Without zooming in, the color reproduction, sky purity, and noise control of Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro are all remarkable, and the edges and details of the text are sharp and clear.
Finally, let’s look at the performance under low light shooting. In the hand-held state, the night scene mode will have an exposure time of 2-3 seconds, but the picture does not appear blurring and image quality deterioration due to handshake. Then the camera will also increase the overall brightness of the picture through multiple exposures, thereby showing more details in the dark. As can be seen from the color of the lantern, the picture in the photo is brighter than it appears to the naked eye. However, some light sources in the room will appear color cast.
Even if you do not use the night scene mode, but shoot directly, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro will brighten the screen to a certain extent, and the overall look and feel are not much different from the night scene mode. However, as can be seen from the text of the door number on the left unit, the text will be slightly blurred due to insufficient exposure time and hand-held shooting.
Finally, take a look at its charging and battery life. Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is equipped with 4500mAh, and we has conducted a system endurance test for daily use scenarios. The test environment is: the system brightness is 50%, the volume is 50%, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are turned on. The test content and results are as follows:
- Talk for 30 minutes and consume 5% of power;
- Brush Taobao for 30 minutes in a Wi-Fi environment, power consumption is 8%;
- Brush WeChat for 30 minutes under a Wi-Fi environment, consuming 6% of power;
- Wi-Fi app “Home of IT” for 30 minutes, 5% of power consumption;
- Listen to music online with headphones for 30 minutes (screen display), 5% power consumption;
- Play the 1080P video of Bilibili online for 60 minutes and consume 10% of power;
- Play “Peace Elite” for 30 minutes and consume 8% of power;
- Taking pictures for 30 minutes consumes 7% of the power.
- 8 hours of standby time, 1% power consumption
- 45% of the remaining power
The charge, since the millet 10 Pro will upgrade to fast-charge standard 50W, and single-core dual charge pump electric charging schemes and practices with a power output greater fast filling head, up to 66W of output, it was 50% in 15 minutes, 83% in 30 minutes, and fully charged in 45 minutes. This result is quite powerful for a 4500mAh battery. In addition, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is also equipped with a 30W wireless fast charger, which can fill the phone in about 80 minutes. I guess there will be a corresponding fast charge accessory at the conference.
Verdict & Buy
Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro, as the heavyweight new product of the 10th anniversary of the Xiaomi Digital Series, is impeccable both in terms of stockpiling and performance. The system experience and camera quality of the phone itself also belong to the bucket style. Of course, the Xiaomi Mi 10 series still has some stability in design. Although the popular digging screens, curved glass and AG frosted glass and other technologies and designs are immediately available, they still follow a stable style. Shui feels that the only regret is that the 2K screen is not used. After all, it is commensurate with Pro, and the battery capacity is not small. Why not be more extreme?
