What is the difference between Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro? Which one should I buy?

As Xiaomi ’s first flagship phone that really impacted the high-end market, the Xiaomi Mi 10 series, whether it is product power or a starting price of 3,999 yuan, as Lei Jun said, has achieved “impressive, kind-hearted pricing” and is worth starting.

This time, the Mi 10 series directly released Xiaomi Mi 10 and Xiaomi Mi Pro 10 products. After the conference, many people wondered what the difference between the two phones is and which one to buy. Let’s take a look at what is different between the two.

The first is the difference between cameras. Both Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro have 100-megapixel quad cameras, but the lens specifications are different.

The four lenses of Xiaomi Mi 10 are: 108MP custom main lens (1/33 inch light sensor, OIS optical image stabilization, 1.6μm large pixel 4 in 1 super large pixel, f / 1.69 large aperture, 7P lens).

13MP super wide-angle lens (f/2.4 aperture, 123 ° super wide angle);

2MP macro lens (f/2.4 aperture, 2-10cm macro);

2MP fine depth of field lens (f/2.4 aperture).

The 108MP main lens of Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is upgraded with an 8P lens, and the ultra-wide-angle lens is changed to 20 million pixels (f / 2.2 aperture, 117° ultra-wide angle).

At the same time, the 2MP macro lens and 2MP depth of field lens were replaced by 8MP telephoto lenses (supporting 10X hybrid optical zoom, OIS optical image stabilization, 1.0 μm, f / 2.0 aperture), 12MP portrait lenses (2X optical Zoom, 1.4-micron large pixels, 2PD dual-core focus, f / 2.0 aperture).

It can be seen that Xiaomi 10 Pro is mainly superior in telephoto (10x hybrid optical zoom, 50x digital zoom) and portrait shooting.

In addition, in the special camera function, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro has super wide-angle super night scene, 960fps slow-motion shooting, 960fps macro slow-motion shooting, moon mode (requires AI camera), and the video super image stabilization has been upgraded to the PRO version. Stronger anti-shake capability.

This is also the reason why Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro can get DxOMark mobile phone photo with 124 points first.

It should be noted that the 30W wireless flash charging of both mobile phones must be matched with Xiaomi’s 30W vertical air-cooled wireless charging accessory (this accessory must be purchased separately), as well as the data cable and charger in the package.

Both phones have the same appearance, size, and weight. The height is 162.6mm, the width is 74.8mm, the thickness is 8.96mm, and the weight is 208g.

The screen is basically the same, 6.67-inch AMOLED hyperboloid screen, 90Hz refresh rate, 180Hz sampling rate, resolution 2340 x 1080 FHD +, screen brightness 800nit (HBM) / 500nit (typ), contrast 5000000: 1, 100% coverage DCI-P3 And sRGB color gamut, Rheinland Low Blue Light certification, Corning 5th Generation Gorilla Glass.

The only difference is that Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro supports HDR10 + high dynamic range image display.

The core configurations of Xiaomi 10 and Xiaomi 10 Pro are exactly the same: Snapdragon 865, LPDDR5 high-speed memory, and UFS 3.0 high-speed storage.

In addition, both phones use dual 1216 ultra-linear speakers and dual Smart PA loud speakers. The Xiaomi Mi 10 is equivalent to a 1.0cc x 2 super large sound cavity design, and the Mi 10 Pro is equivalent to a 1.2cc x 2 super large sound cavity design.
