Saw Frankie Techs video on Youtube, and I have to say the price goes to Redmi K30 Pro Zoom edition.
It is almost as good as Mi 10 and beats X50 easily, and comes with a really good price. Dont care about 60 hz panel..
If only it would cost those 700 EUR in Europe same as in China. For 1000 EUR it is just too much, it lacks IP 68 which we can find on pretty much every phone in this price range. Huawe's camera seems to be taking better pictures in low light and with ultrawide camera, has better zoom. Really, this is a good phone, but I can't imagine selling this in Europe very well.
Why was the night mode on the 5x zoom photos on the Ultra not used? with its night mode it would wipe the floor with other 2, very unfair.
As Techtablets on Youtube has shown on several Xiaomi reviews with global software you still get ads in Xiaomi's native apps.. so yes. Ads are present.
Compared to the Galaxy S20 Ultra, the Xiaomi is definitely the winner. But the P40 Pro's better detail clarity is hard to ignore despite the occasional odd colour reproduction and the obvious oversharpening effect on most photos. As for the 5x zoom and low light photos, I'm definitely not impressed with any of them but the Xiaomi is definitely the least bad.
So in terms of camera performance between the three, the Xiaomi seems to perform the best followed by the Huawei and lastly the Samsung. But does that make the Xiaomi THE best smartphone in 2020? Nope, not even slightly. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see if the OnePlus 8 Pro's camera performs much better than the Xiaomi.
Daylight camera performance is decent on all 3 phones' main cameras, though each one of them has a disadvantage that is unique to its own and I can't say which one does the best:
Mi 10 Pro - Strong lens distortion and softness around the lower left corner, some minor overprocessing
S20 Ultra - Oversaturation and excessive noise reduction
P40 Pro - Inaccurate representation of blue channels
In low light Mi 10 Pro surprisingly does well and surpasses P40 Pro in a few scenes, while S20 Ultra somehow becomes a lot noisier and less detailed than Mi 10 Pro despite having larger pixels which should put it to an advantageous position in low light.
I'm more impressed with Mi 10 Pro's night mode performance, however, since it doesn't sacrifice anything to achieve what it does (brighter scene with better dynamic range) unlike P40 Pro and S20 Ultra which softens the image/oversharpens everything and introduces tons of noise, respectively.
"The Galaxy's Night Mode photos are simply great"? If you can get past the mix of blotchy artifacts, luminance and chroma noise in the sky, awful edge enhancement ringings around buildings and occasional HDR halo, then maybe. But Mi 10 Pro is capable of capturing an equal or even higher amount of textures without such issues. Both Huawei and Samsung have a lot to work on in order to catch up Apple's and Google's territory when it comes to dedicated night mode.
Overall impressive camera performance by Mi 10 Pro, they mostly fixed what were considered to be issues on Mi Note 10 on this one. I'm now split between this and Find X2 Pro, which has a slightly worse camera and speakers but much better display. I can't wait for those phones to come to where I live so that I can finally make up my mind.
Anonymous, 22 Apr 2020Do not trust benchmark when it is from chinese phone.
All were caught cheating already. No one is cheating on benchmarks.
These phones by default switch to high performance mode upon detection of Benchmarking apps. That's why they get high scores.
The stoper for this excellent phone is only single SIM in European version. That is the real bummer
- Premium design and build quality.
- Top of the line chipset performance which is reflected in benchmarks as well as in the real
world. Added cooling to prevent any throttling.
- That 1.4 micron 12Mp portrait lens is great. It's the main sensor from previous years
- Ultrawide has autofocus too. Poor pics in low light can easily be fixed with gcam.
- Main camera is superb and with gcam this becomes a potent combination.
- Neither Huawei P40 Pro nor the Galaxy S20 Ultra can offer such impressive zoom photos
at night as they often prefer to do digital zoom over the main camera. Wow, just Wow.
- Screen is great with a bright display complete with Hdr certification unlike Huawei.
- IP68 is absent but you get the consolation trophy by it being splash proof.
- Fastest in display fingerprint scanner.
- best stereo speakers on the market with best rated audio so far according to DxOMark.
- Battery life is great with One of the fastest charging solutions on a phone (wired and wireless).
This is indeed a winner! Only turn off is the price.
Davy Jones, 22 Apr 2020So the mi 10 pro is best camera phone in daylightYup, likely it is. Thanks for the highest megapixel in pixel-binning mod. Cannot say the same about lowlight though.
jakov1, 21 Apr 2020I like this phone, but there's no way this deserves 4.4 stars unless OnePlus 8 Pro 5.0. It cos... moreIt is better than the one plus and the only thing one plus has over it is
Higher refresh rate
What is dissappointing about this Phone is content of retail package. You pay 1000 E and there is no protective case for the back nor any headphones included.
