Xiaomi Redmi 10T Pro Review 

              Xiaomi has been trying hard to break the mold of a budget smartphone manufacturer for some time. The company has tried to bring its premium Mi series model on several occasions, and the latest is the Mi 10T Pro. It is the successor to the Xiaomi Mi 10, but comes at a slightly cheaper price of Rs 39,999. However, has Xiaomi just cut the price? We put Xiaomi's latest flagship to the test to find out.

Design and Look

Xiaomi  RedMi 10T Pro looks and feels premium. Lift the device and you will immediately feel its 218g weight, which is heavy. Compared to the Mi 10T Rs 44,999 (review), some changes have been made to the Mi 10T Pro, the most important of which is the display. You will no longer get a curved AMOLED panel; Instead, there is a flat LCD. The display is 6.67 inches and has a camera hole in the top left corner. While the flat LCD panel may seem like a downgrade, Xiaomi has increased the refresh rate to 144Hz. It displays animations smoothly and provides a browsing feel through the menu. There is also support for HDR10.

Corning Gorilla Glass 5 is present on the front, back and camera modules, which helps prevent the smartphone from scratching. The Mi 10T Pro's frame is made of metal and feels cool to the touch. Xiaomi has opted for a side-mounted fingerprint scanner on the right, and is easy to access. The volume buttons are also on the same side and can be accessed single-use. Xiaomi offers the Mi 10T Pro in two colors, Lunar Silver and Cosmic Black. I had the latter for review and it seemed to me more gray than black. It is also a fingerprint magnet.

The camera module on the Mi 10T Pro expands substantially, putting the device on a table on its back. The rear panel curves at the sides which makes this phone comfortable to hold. The top and bottom of the frame are fairly flat, so that it can be erect, although you may not really want to do this. The SIM tray is at the bottom with a USB Type-C port and bottom-firing speakers. At the top you get an IR emitter which is a common sight on Xiaomi smartphones, as well as additional microphones. Xiaomi also offers stereo speakers on the Mi 10T Pro, which is a tidy touch. There is a small LED that sits between the display and frame that lights up for incoming notifications and when you plug the smartphone in to charge.

Xiaomi has packed a 5,000mAh battery in the Mi 10T Pro, which is the reason for it coming in bulk. The smartphone ships with a 33W fast charger in the box but I couldn't find one with my review unit. Also, while Xiaomi Mi 10 was Fast 30W wireless charging at Rs 44,999, the Mi 10T Pro missed out completely on wireless charging, which could be another way to keep costs down.

Specifications and Features

The Mi 10T Pro has a full-HD + resolution in a high-refresh-rate LCD. It has a nice LCD panel with decent viewing angles, and it gets quite bright when you're outside. However, the colors are not as porous and the blacks are not as dark as they would be on the AMOLED panel. You have the option to select different color modes and also customize the color temperature of the display. The Mi 10T Pro allows you to set the refresh rate manually. You can choose between 60Hz, 90Hz and 144Hz. I set it to 144Hz which made the scrolling appear smooth.

While the switch from AMOLED to LCD is a big one, the internal features of the Mi 10T Pro have remained mostly unchanged. It is powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor as the Mi 10. You get 8GB LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB UFS 3.1 internal storage. The Mi 10T Pro has dual nano-SIM slots, support for 5G and dual 4G VoLTE. Other connectivity options of this smartphone include Bluetooth 5.1, Wi-Fi 6, NFC and four navigation systems.

In terms of software, you get MIUI 12 loaded on top of Android 10.. The UI feels familiar and is quite featured-packed. The Mi 10T Pro was running the September Android security patch when I found it, but later the October patch was updated which is acceptable. I found some apps preinstalled on the device, such as Zilli, Amazon, Facebook, LinkedIn,, WPS Office, Mi Store, Mi Picks, Mi Pay, and Mi Credit. Some apps such as Themes, Music and GetApps continued to push notifications, which caused a bit of trouble. Given that Xiaomi is trying to present it as a premium smartphone, it would be a good idea to keep a tight control on spam related information.

The Mi 10T Pro also offers a Game Turbo feature that clears other apps from memory, restricts gestures, and gives you the option to take incoming calls for free during gaming. You can also customize some settings for each game.

Software and Performance

Looking at the hardware of the Mi 10T Pro, I have no worries about its performance. The phone was quick to load apps, and transition animations made at high refresh rates appear super smooth. I didn't have to wait long to load apps, and with 8GB of RAM, I could switch between multiple apps without waiting. The side-mounted fingerprint scanner is super quick, and illuminating the display can unlock the face recognition smartphone.

I ran my standard set benchmark to see where the Mi 10T Pro stands and the results were not surprising. In AnTuTu, the Mi 10T Pro scored 573,614 points, and it also managed to score 10,079 points in PCMark Work 2.0, which are very close to the same test as the OnePlus 8T ₹ 42,999 (review). The Mi 10T Pro managed 910 and 3,395 in Geekbench 5's single-core and multi-core tests. These scores are higher than the OnePlus 8T. In the graphics benchmark GFXBench's T-Rex and Manhattan 3.1 tests, the Mi 10T Pro scored 5,915 in 50fps as well as the 3DMark Slingshot test.

I noticed that the Mi 10T Pro would be warm to the touch when inserted under load. Using the camera for loans and even gaming put the smartphone under a bit of stress. I played Call of Duty Mobile, which oddly defines medium graphics quality and high frame rate. Bumping the settings to too high had no effect on performance, and the Mi 10T Pro can handle the game on these settings as well. It warmed up though, and there was a 4 percent battery drop at the end of 20 minutes of gameplay.

The 5,000mAh battery on the Mi 10T Pro lasted about a day and a half with my usage, and the refresh rate was set to 144Hz. You should be able to achieve a slightly better battery life by lowering the refresh rate. In our HD video loop test, the phone ran for 16 hours, 38 minutes which is an acceptable score for smartphones packing Snapdragon 865 processors. I could not find a 33W charger in the box to do a charging speed check. Xiaomi claims that you can get full charge in about an hour.

Camera and Image quality

The Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro is packed in a triple camera setup with 108-megapixel primary sensor with OIS and f / 1.69 aperture, 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with a 123-degree field, and a 5-megapixel There is a macro camera. At the front, it has a 20-megapixel selfie shooter. The camera app has several shooting modes that can be accessed instantly. Swiping with the shutter button reveals some additional modes including 108-megapixel mode that lets you take shots at full resolution.

There is no macro mode, and strangely, Xiaomi has implemented it as a button in the second submenu, which can be a bit confusing. There is a quick AI toggle that you can enable while taking a shot. The Mi 10T Pro was quick to find out what its purpose was, and set the camera accordingly.

The Mi 10T Pro shoots 25-megapixel pixel-binned shots by default using the primary camera. The daylight shots had a nice detail but the output overshaper appeared, something I've seen with other Xiaomi smartphones as well. There was also some noise in some shots which I did not expect. The wide-angle camera does not capture as much light as the primary one, and I found that the photos were taken under similar conditions to be a bit darker. The edges also had noticeable distortion. Pictures shot at full 108-megapixel resolution offered good detail, but there was some grain in the shade. The Mi 10T Pro does not sharpen photos taken at full resolution.

The low-light camera performed well, and the phone's AI camera was quick to set up. The Mi 10T Pro keeps noise under control but still speeds up output. To take a shot in night mode required about 4-5 seconds and I noticed that the output was of high resolution at around 27 megapixels. Night mode helps capture finer details than regular mode, but you'll need a steady hand to avoid blurry output.

I found the close-up shots to be very detailed with well defined edges and a soft blur for the background. The macro camera manages crisp shots with good detail. AI can detect pets using portrait mode, and I can also determine the level of blur before taking a shot. The Mi 10T Pro had trouble focusing quickly on moving subjects, but once it managed to lock up, there was a good separation between the subject and the background.

The Mi 10T Pro took a good selfie in daylight as well as in low light. Photos were sharp with good details. You have the option to shoot in portrait mode, and the phone lets you set the level of blur before taking a shot. The selfie camera gives you full-race 20-megapixel output.

The primary rear camera for the selfie shooter and video recording for 1080p topped 8K. There is OIS for the primary camera which helps stabilize the output. VIdeos shot at 4K and 1080p was also stabilized in broad daylight. The Mi 10T Pro smooths out the footage nicely even in low light, though occasionally flickering. I could also shine a bit of lens, but this was not a major issue.


While the Mi 10T Pro offers powerful hardware, it does not cost as much as the Xiaomi Mi 10 (review) at launch. This move makes the Mi flagship series more accessible to consumers. However, the lower price means there are some compromises, such as LCDs instead of AMOLED displays, and a lack of wireless charging compared to the Mi 10.

You get a 144Hz refresh rate LCD, and the 108-megapixel primary camera on the Mi 10T Pro gives an edge over competitors like the iQoo 3 at Rs 29,990 (review) and the Realme X50 Pro 5G at Rs 34,999 (review), which are priced similarly. While the Mi 10T Pro is a better choice than both of these smartphones, it may not be as easy to recommend the popular OnePlus 8T (Review), which offers a cleaner software experience, 120Hz AMOLED display and 65W fast charging for a bit of charging. is. more.
