Xiaomi Mi 10T: Is it worth it?
The Mi 10T is still a flagship-grade smartphone, especially after a single glance at its specifications sheet. With its Snapdragon 865 chip and a large 5000mAh battery, this is a high-performance smartphone that mobile gamers should definitely look into. However, that’s not enough on its own. We have listed some reasons that you should keep in mind before you hit that “buy” button. Also Read - Redmi Note 10 Pro Max, OnePlus 8T, Samsung Galaxy S21: Phones with 120hz screen refresh rate
-The Snapdragon 865 chip is one of the highlights on the Mi 10T. Those who seek fast performance for at least the next two years will be happy using the Mi 10T. There’s no resource-intensive game and app that this chip can’t handle. And, that’s likely to be the case for at least two years.
-The Mi 10T supports 5G connectivity and even though 5G is yet to arrive in India, choosing this phone will future-proof your purchase. Whenever 5G rolls out, Mi 10T users can simply upgrade to a 5G SIM card to access 5G services.
-Another highlight on the Mi 10T is the 144Hz 6.67-inch display. Mobile gamers and tech enthusiasts will appreciate the responsive display while gaming or scrolling. However, this is an IPS LCD display and while the color tuning is the best of its kind, brightness levels are not on par with phones that use AMOLED displays.
-Battery life on the Mi 10T is good. We tried out the Mi 10T Pro and it lasted us over a day on average. The 33W wired charging system fills up the battery in under an hour. You don’t get wireless charging on this one.
-Unlike the Mi 10T Pro, the Mi 10T only has a 64-megapixel main camera sensor. Most casual photographers should find this camera adequate. The ultra-wide camera offers more versatility while the macro camera on this phone is more useable. The lack of a 108MP mode means you cannot get those highly detailed photos.
-The MIUI 12 interface is polarizing. Those who love customization and extra features will find the interface delightful, especially with the iOS-aping layout. However, there is third-party pre-loaded bloatware and the UI has a notable learning curve. Those who like a stock Android interface won’t appreciate MIUI’s presentation.
