Design

The devices belonging to the Mi 10T series are phones we expected to be very appealing, and the devices have not failed to meet up with this expectation.

As expected, the touchscreens of the phones are protected with the Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

But not only do the phones feature the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 in their fronts, their rear sides also feature the Corning Gorilla Glass 5. However, as for their two sides, aluminium is used to protect these two sides.

But while the use of the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 in both the front and the back of the 10T phones is one of the major contributors to their appealing designs, the build quality of the phones, the colours of the phones, and the form factors of the phones, are also big contributors to their designs impressiveness.

And as regards how similar the devices’ designs are, the front-camera and rear-camera placements of the 10T Lite and the 10T are what mainly makes them different. As for the 10T Pro, it shares the same front and rear camera placement as the 10T.

Computing Hardware

The work Xiaomi did in the aspect of computing hardware of the three phones, is a good job.

The manufacturer included the right kinds of chip, in the phones, so computing power of the phones is the last thing you’ll have to complain about.

Giving details about the computing hardwares of the phones, the chip which powers the 10T Lite is the Qualcomm SM7225 Snapdragon 750 5G.

The Qualcomm SM7225 Snapdragon 750 5G is of course not one of the best Qualcomm chips out there, but hey, do not underestimate the chip.

The chip’s processor features two 2.20 GHz Kryo 570 Gold cores and six 1.80 GHz Kryo 570 Silver cores. The Kryo 570 Gold cores are based on the ARM’s Cortex A77 core, which implements the ARM v8.2 A instruction set.

In short, when it comes to performing some heavy tasks, this core won’t disappoint.

But while the Kryo 570 Gold cores of the chip’s processors are based on the ARM’s Cortex A77, the Kryo 570 Silver cores of the chip’s processor are based on the ARM’s Cortex A55 core.

The Kryo 570 Silver core also implements the ARM v8.2 A instruction set, although it can’t perform as fast as its Gold counterpart.

The Qualcomm SM8250 Snapdragon 865 is what powers the 10T and the 10T Pro. Giving details about the Qualcomm SM8250 Snapdragon 865, this chip is loaded with an octa-core processor made up of one 2.84 GHz Kryo 585 Prime core, three 2.42 GHz Kryo 585 Gold cores, and four 1.80 GHz Kryo 585 Silver cores.

The Prime core and the three Gold cores form the performance cluster of the processor, while the four Silver cores form the efficiency cluster of the processor.

In other words, when there’s a lot of work to do the Prime core and the three Gold cores are what run. But when there isn’t much to do, the four Silver cores are what run.

Back to the Mi 10T Lite, when it comes to its graphics processing, the GPU responsible is the Adreno 619 GPU.

When it comes to graphics processing power, the Adreno 619 is not as good as any of — the Adreno 630, the Adreno 640, or the Adreno 650.

But in this present age, the Adreno 619 will easily handle the majority of the graphics processing tasks thrown at it.

As for the 10T and the 10T Pro, the GPU handling their graphics processing is the Adreno 650.

The Adreno 650 is one of Qualcomm’s most impressive GPUs, so you have absolutely nothing to worry about, when it comes to the graphics processing of the phone.

For a phone like the 10T Lite, 6 GB of RAM, is the optimum RAM needed, to get the best out of it.

And with 6 GB of RAM being exactly what Xiaomi equipped the phone with, it’s safe to say the manufacturer did a good job in this aspect.

As for the 10T, 8 GB of RAM is the optimum RAM needed. And with 8 GB builds of the phone available, we can also say Xiaomi did not disappoint in this aspect.

But note that if you want to own an 8 GB RAM of this phone, you’ll have to pay a little more than the amount mentioned earlier on.

The 6 GB RAM build of the phone are rather what sell as the price mentioned above. 8 GB of RAM is also the minimum size of RAM needed for anyone to get the best out of the 10T Pro.

And since 8 GB of RAM is what Xiaomi equipped the phone with, Xiaomi can further be considered to have done a good job in this aspect as well.

Display

For a phone like the 10T Lite, an IPS display with a pixel density not less than 360 PPI is what we expect.

And since the phone comes with a 395 PPI IPS display, Xiaomi can be considered to have done an impressive job in this aspect.

And with the phone’s display measuring as high as 6.67 inches, people will appreciate the device even better.

As for the 10T and the 10T Pro, the display they feature is the exact same display the 10T Lite features.

But while such a display may be okay for the 10T, this kind of display isn’t okay for a device like the 10T or a device like the 10T Pro.

Xiaomi would have done a good job, had it been the display used for the 10T is an OLED or an AMOLED display.

And as for the 10T Pro, not only should Xiaomi have used an OLED or an AMOLED display for the phone, Xiaomi should have also made the pixel density higher than 480 PPI.

In short, the 10T Lite scores well in terms of display, the 10T is a little disappointing in terms of display, and the 10T Pro is a serious disappointment in terms of display.

Operating System

The Android 11 OS is a thing we’ve started seeing in some phones. And while it’s possible for Xiaomi to have equipped the 10T phones with this OS, we can’t consider Xiaomi to have disappointed.

The Android 10 OS is still a great OS at the moment, so even if the 10T phones never support it, the phones should still be fine for about 2 years.

But even though the three phones are powered by the Android 10 OS, it’s only a matter of months before Xiaomi rolls out there Android 11 OS to these phones.

In fact, it has been confirmed Xiaomi will also roll out the Android 12 OS to the phones, when it becomes available.

In short, in terms of OS, the three 10T phones are impressive products.

Storage

For a phone like Mi 10T Lite, 64 GB of storage is what is expected. And good enough, we have some builds of the phone coming with this storage capacity.

But not only do we have builds coming with 64 GB of storage, we also have some builds coming with 128 GB of storage.

However, when I say the phone should come with at least 64 GB of storage, I’m not referring to an eMMC 5.1 storage, I’m rather referring to a UFS 2.1 storage.

And since a UFS 2.1 storage device is also what Xiaomi equipped this phone with, Xiaomi can be considered to have done a good job in this aspect.

As for the 10T and the 10T Pro, since the 128-GB UFS-3.0 devices we expect are what they feature, without wasting time, the two phones can also be considered impressive in the aspect of storage.

Camera

The Mi 10T Lite comes with four rear cameras and one front camera. With the pictures I was able to take with the cameras, I can promise you won’t be disappointed.

However, don’t get me wrong, the pictures taken by the cameras can not be compared to those taken by some of the best phones we have there, but if we’re to judge based on the price of the Mi 10T Lite, you won’t be disappointed.

As for the Mi 10T, the pictures its front and rear cameras take are more impressive than those taken by the cameras of the Mi 10T Lite.

The cameras of the 10T will also compete with those of most phones in its category. So as long as you don’t expect something as good as pictures taken by the best Android phones, you won’t be disappointed.

The Mi 10T Pro has a lot of things in common with the 10T, and its front camera is one of them.

In other words, the quality of pictures taking by the front camera of the 10T is the same as those of pictures “the 10T Pro’s front camera” takes.

However, when it comes to rear cameras, the 10T and the 10T Pro are not the same. And not only do the two phones feature different sets of rear cameras, the set of rear cameras featured by the 10T Pro are also more impressive.

Final Words

The Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite, the Mi 10T, and the Mi 10T Pro are significantly apart in terms of their price in Nigeria.

So if you want to choose from the three, choose based on which of them you can afford.

Also, if you wonder whether to choose “the Mi 10T Lite” or “a phone from another phone series”, you can choose the 10T Lite.

However, when it comes to the 10T, you should also feel free to choose it over its competitions, although the phone is a bit disappointing in terms of display.

As for the 10T Pro, Xiaomi really disappointed in terms of display. Xiaomi disappointed in terms of display type and resolution.

However, Xiaomi won’t be the first manufacturer to disappoint; in other words, you’ll also find some competing phones which are disappointing in some aspects.

So if you are wondering whether to choose “the 10T Pro” or “some other competing phone”, simply ask yourself, “Can I live with the display of the 10T Pro?”.

If your answer is yes, then the 10T Pro should be a great device for you, as it has a lot to offer in other aspects.
