Xiaomi is probably down to its last card for the Mi Series this 2020, launching the Mi 10T series and we got ourselves the Mi 10T Pro with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage which is the most premium of this series. The main highlight of this phone is definitely the Snapdragon 865 chip as well as its 144Hz of screen refresh rate which is candy to the eye for most gamers out there. Let us check out if this phone really is worth the hype.
The Mi 10T Pro did took a little stepback in terms of design for me, I was quite a bit accustomed to the curved display for flagship level phones. But this one went back to IPS LCD and a flat display. This is not really that bad when you take a look at it and using for more than a week now, I tried to compare it with my Mi 10 Ultra for a fair comparison, since they belong to the Mi 10 family. But after staring at both phones for a while, I tend to say not bad, the IPS LCD is compensated by the 144Hz screen refresh rate and probably Xiaomi used good quality IPS LCD on this one thats why you cant really say the difference is that far between this one and the Super Amoled in the Mi 10 Ultra.
The Snapdragon 865 definitely is a chip to beat this year, the best among the rest for year 2020 (probably a little lower thank the SD865+). This chip scored a 585k points on Antutu benchmark which is at par with the Mi 10 series. Multitasking was definitely a breeze on this one.
I can say that after testing NBA 2k20, Hungry Shark, PUBG, Mobile Legends and Call of Duty, these games did performed without a hitch. I didnt even feel framedrops while playing the Call of Duty. The cooling system is quite okay on this one, the hottest it got was 41 Celcisus which is after playing Call of Duty for 2 hours.
My favorite topic, this phone had a 108MP Triple camera, and yes its triple camera. Taking shots outdoors are great, but I cant really say the same indoors as its sometimes a little grainy, but give proper lights indoors, it can also perform.
I believe this phone is something worth your money, tho there were some major cutback on specs, but overall I can live without them after using for several days. Gone were wireless charging and the the Super Amoled display.
