Xiaomi 10 Pro Hands-on Review: New Experience New Starting Point New Challenges


[Bestbuy618 cell phone channel] affected by the epidemic, the first flagship Xiaomi 10 series on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of Xiaomi cell phone changed to a purely online live form of release, when Lei Jun explained the live applause sound effects were added later, I wonder if there are any rice fans with the same sour nose as the author.

The overall black and white tone, in addition to the yellow Hi-Res Audio audio certification in the upper left corner, can be said to be a long time no see, the deep color scheme also makes us more look forward to the real machine hands-on feeling. Take out the real machine, the first thing to feel is that the front digging hole is really very small, if you haven’t already watched the launch, the dark theme background may be really difficult to see. The Xiaomi 10 Pro has a 6.67-inch AMOLED “primary color screen” with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 and a refresh rate of 90Hz, as well as a touch sampling rate of 180Hz, possibly because the company knows that curved screens are bad for film.

The concept of “primary color screen” was already proposed in the Xiaomi 9 Pro 5G version, and this time Xiaomi 10 Pro has also made more precise screen color tuning. In terms of data, the key color tuning indicator for the Xiaomi 10 Pro is JNCD0.55, while the requirement for the iPhone 11 Pro Max is JNCD0.9, so there is no need to discuss color accuracy. For more general users who are concerned about brightness, the Xiaomi 10 Pro’s screen maximum brightness reached 1200nit, and the actual test phone screen in the sunlight is still clearly visible.

To say that the screen regret, it is estimated that many rice fans will be mentioned already in the Redmi K30 use of 120Hz screen. The rear camera module retains the familiar exclamation point design, and the Xiaomi logo remains in the same location as before, but with a new 5G logo. It is worth noting that the Xiaomi 10Pro does not feel heavy in the hand, thanks to the curved design of the front and back.

Since the company’s official entry into the high-end market, performance has become increasingly important. The performance of Xiaomi 10 Pro is naturally more anticipated as the domestic debut of Qualcomm’s 2020 flagship SOC Snapdragon 865. First and foremost, let’s review the key parts of Snapdragon 865. Snapdragon 865 as the main engine of Xiaomi 10 series super performance, with a maximum frequency of 2.84GHz super core, its new generation of Qualcomm Kryo 585 CPU performance increase of up to 25%, faster processing speed, higher efficiency; in the GPU, the new Adreno 65 Simultaneously, the new Adreno 650 graphics processor has a 25% increase in rendering speed.

The fifth-generation AIE artificial intelligence engine has 15 TOPS of powerful computing power and a quadruple-performance tensor gas pedal. As the standard core platform for Android flagships in 2020, Snapdragon 865 can be said to be built for the 5G era, supporting all key regions and major frequency bands, including millimeter wave and TDD and FDD bands below 6 GHz.

Furthermore, the platform supports both non-standalone (NSA) and standalone (SA) networking modes, as well as dynamic spectrum sharing (DSS), global 5G roaming, and multi-SIM support.

It is also worth noting that the Snapdragon 865 is the industry’s first mobile platform to support LPDDR5 memory, as a result of which the Xiaomi 10 series comes standard with LPDDR5 memory standard, supporting up to 5500Mbps rate transfer, which is approximately 30% faster than the previous generation, while power consumption is reduced at the same time. The Xiaomi 10 Pro comes with four cameras on the back of the body, from top to bottom: 10x hybrid zoom super telephoto lens, 12MP double portrait lens, 100MP main camera lens, and the new Write Turbo enhanced write technology. The official AnTuTu run score of 585,232 points, the actual test 568,221, there is not much error.

The 108M logo on the topmost lens should not confuse users; the third camera on the Xiaomi 10 Pro is the topmost 100MP main camera.

Furthermore, there is a laser sensor in the middle of the second and third cameras, that is, between the portrait lens and the 100-megapixel main camera lens, which can quickly focus and determine the color temperature, making the picture color more accurate. In short, the Xiaomi 10 Pro is essentially the same configuration as the Xiaomi CC9 Pro, with the previous standalone macro lens removed and replaced with a 20-megapixel ultra-wide angle lens.

Screenshot of 100 million pixel sample enlargement In fact, the high resolution of 100 megapixels has been fully felt in Xiaomi CC9 Pro as early as this review, so it is not convenient to go out and shoot too many samples. Furthermore, another promotional selling point of the Xiaomi 10 Pro is its support for shooting 8K video, and you can see the 8K logo on the top when you click on it. When 100 million pixels and the Snapdragon 865 collide, imaging speed has once again become the primary concern of the majority of users.

Aside from the long processing time of 100 million pixel samples, another issue that emerged in the Xiaomi CC9 Pro was that the samples were too large and inconvenient to transfer, which was also addressed in the Xiaomi 10 series. The Xiaomi 10 series supports HEIF format, which should be familiar to iPhone users. Simply put, it is more efficient compression while maintaining image quality, which is still very useful to alleviate the problem of oversized 100 million pixel samples.

However, some users have responded to some APP support for the format having some minor issues, but this is after all a trend, and the future is bound to improve. The 5G network power consumption problem has really concerned the user, and this Xiaomi 10 Pro in the range and charging again upgrade, built-in 4500mAh large battery However, the previously hot 66W fast charging did not appear on the Xiaomi 10 series, Xiaomi 10 Pro actually supports fast charging power 50W, but the box comes with a charging head marked 65W, and the official claim of 45 minutes to fill, the actual test power from 9 percent, charging half an hour to 70%, 44 minutes to fill, and the official data is essentially the same.

As the opening flagship of Xiaomi 2020, it is also the first launch of the domestic cell phone manufacturers under the epidemic, Xiaomi 10 series has been much attention from before the launch. The current environment, aside from the production capacity will inevitably be affected, consumer enthusiasm is also greatly weakened, coupled with the price from 3999 yuan compared to the previous a lot of enhancements, choose this time to market is undoubtedly a great challenge for Xiaomi. The Xiaomi 10 series has “broken the bondage of price,” as Lei Jun stated, but what is more important for the Xiaomi 10 series is to break the user’s cognitive bias and let the user know that 3999 yuan is not the end of youth, but the beginning of another period of youth.
