Reasons To Buy

Premium Build Quality

The Mi 10T series comes with premium glass back with aluminum alloy frame. It also has Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on the back and features a side-mounted fingerprint scanner while back housing only new camera module.

Mi 10T

The phones come in Cosmic Black color that offers Ceramic finish and in a Lunar Silver color option also that offers Matte frost finish.

On the front, there is a small punch-hole in the big display that offers a immersive experience and makes it a premium looking phone from the front also.

Big 144Hz Display

The devices sport a big 6.67-inch Full HD+(2400 × 1080 pixels) LCD screen with up to 650 nits brightness and HDR10 support. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

The screens come with 144Hz refresh rate and have an adaptive sync variable refresh rate feature to switch between 144Hz, 120Hz, 90Hz, 60Hz, 50Hz, and 30Hz modes. It also comes with MEMC motion compensation technology.

Snapdragon 865 Processor

These are powered by Snapdragon 865 SoC with 5G SA/NSA support via Snapdragon X55 modem and with Adreno 650 GPU. The phones also come with liquid cooling.

These pack up to 8GB LPPDDR5 RAM with 128GB UFS 3.1 storage. The latest type RAM and the fastest storage will make the phones more powerful.

108MP/64MP Camera

These sports a quad camera setup on the back. The Mi 10T Pro has a 108MP Samsung sensor with support for OIS and a 4-in-1 Super Pixel tech to capture detailed pictures, even in low-light conditions. The Mi 10T comes with a 64MP Sony IMX682 sensor.

These phones come with 13MP ultra-wide-angle lens and a 5MP super macro camera. These sports a 20MP front camera with Samsung S5K3T2 sensor and f/2.2 aperture.

The cameras support Dual Video feature which lets you shoot from front and rear cameras simultaneously.

Big Battery & Fast Charging

The devices pack a 5000mAh battery with 33W fast charging support that can charge the phones up to 100% in just an hour.

Reasons Not To Buy

Not so compact

Since the phones come with a premium build quality but if we talk about one hand usage, these are not so compact and you might feel a little difficulty while using them with one hand. The thickness of the devices are 9.3mm and their weight is over 200g. Also, the large display will make it even bigger for one hand.

No 3.5mm jack

As we keep saying, the need of 3.5mm headphone jack in a flagship cannot be ignored. If you are offering all the essential ports with your phones and also the phones are not even quite slim, so the 3.5mm jack would not have been a much problem to include.


This is exactly not a big reason not to buy these new phones as some users like the custom UI from Xiaomi. However, for those who like a more clean and near stock Android UI on their phones, might find this an issue.

Wrapping Up

With such features, you can see these phones compete in the affordable flagship market in India against the likes of Realme X50 Pro, iQOO 3, OnePlus 8 or the recently launched OnePlus 8T. So, if you are looking for a flagship level phone while you’re tight on budget, you can surely consider these Mi 10T series phones.
