Primary Camera:
The main camera of Xiaomi Mi 10 5G is 108MP with 1.7 Focal length. This camera has a Samsung ISOCELL bright HMX sensor. Images taken through this camera are bright, well detailed, minimal noise with punchier colours. Seam recognition works pretty well. Fast OIS (Optical Image Stabilization), EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization) provide good stability. Only while doing outdoor photography you might see the sky colour being blown out. They are yet to fix this issue. 3X digital zoom available with this phone. This phone supports 8K shooting capability for up to 7mins.

Ultra-wide Camera:
Xiaomi Mi 10 5G has 13MP ultra-wide camera. Performance of this camera is similar to the primary camera. Skin tones produced are very well. It performs well in indoor as well as outdoor lighting condition. Also, closeup shots do a good job.

Macro and Depth Camera:
This is something questionable in Xiaomi Mi 10 5G as Macro and Depth cameras are just 2MP. Even a mid-range phone nowadays have 5MP then what made Xiaomi go for 2MP cameras. Instead, they could have given decent telephoto that is the zoom lens.

Front Camera:
Xiaomi Mi 10 5G has 20MP punch-hole design front camera. This front-facing camera is good but could have been better. White balance is slightly off but that doesn’t affect much in terms of camera performance.

Xiaomi Mi 10 5G is provided with absolutely stunning stereo speakers. This is not earpiece doubling but total secondary speaker which makes its sound output very full and rich. These Speakers resides at the top and bottom of the phone gives the best audio experience. Since there is no 3.5mm jack available for this Smartphone, Xiaomi has provided Type C dongle to connect headphones.

Xiaomi Mi 10 5G is equipped with 4780mAh battery which lasts for a day even after heavy usage. With 30W fast charger provided in the box, it goes from 0 to 100 in just an hour. This phone also supports Wireless charging and reverse charging.

Software and Performance:

Xiaomi Mi 10 5G comes with Out of the box MIUI 11 which is based on Android 10.0 and MIUI. Even after the latest OS and high price, you will be surprised to see bloatware on this phone. While setting the phone do disable these additional notifications otherwise these bloatware ads will keep popping in your phone.

With MIUI 11 and Snapdragon 865 SOC chip, this phone is very responsive. It gives a smooth experience for whatever purpose you might use. That is from day to day activities like messaging, chatting, Instagram to heavy gameplay. MIUI 11 is optimized for both fluidity as well as battery life. This phone supports variable refresh rate according to the requirements of the apps. Also, it is safe to use as SAR values are within limits.

Concluding Words:

Xiaomi Mi 10 5G has most of the latest features equipped with it. Latest chipset, User Interface, display, camera sensor, liquid cooling etc which makes this mobile one of the best flagship phone. Still, there are few things which lack in this phone like 2MP Macro and Depth camera, Bloatware etc.

Many techno-geeks expected this phone to be priced between 40000 to 45000. But this phone came with a price tag of 50000 INR which seems slightly overpriced for some people. With little more budget, you can go for proper Quad HD screen with 130Hz display. Only time will tell whether this phone will stand the competition with its opponent as other companies have lined up their phone for launching.

Let me know what are your views about this Smartphone. Will it stand the competition?
