GPU Performance

GPU performance of the Mi 10 Pro is something we’ve alluded to in recent few reviews we’ve published (OnePlus 8 & LG V60), as we’ve had a group of Snapdragon 865 devices which all seemingly performed near identical in terms of their peak and sustained performance numbers:

Basemark GPU 1.2 - Medium 1440p - Off-Screen / Blit GFXBench Aztec Ruins - High - Vulkan/Metal - Off-screen GFXBench Aztec Ruins - Normal - Vulkan/Metal - Off-screen GFXBench Manhattan 3.1 Off-screen GFXBench T-Rex 2.7 Off-screen

Indeed, you’d have a hard time distinguishing the Mi 10 Pro from the performance of the OnePlus phones or the V60 as seemingly all four phones exhibit the same benchmark results. Thermal throttling essentially doesn’t exist on these devices as the thermal dissipation systems are more than up to par to be able to keep temperatures of the SoC and the Adreno 650 GPU in check, with the Mi 10 Pro barely hitting 40°C under prolonged load tests.

Overall, thanks to the higher refresh screen, big battery and excellent performance of the chipset, the Mi 10 Pro should be an excellent gaming device which offers a great gaming experience.

    If you actually read the review instead of immediately spewing hatred you will read that I say it's not worth for 999€, however the Mi 10 can be had for 560€ which is a great value.

    "Overall, is the Mi 10 Pro worth it? It depends on the price, there’s no bad products, just bad prices. At the launch MSRPs of 999€ the 10 Pro I think certainly wouldn’t be worth the price as there’s other better alternatives out there such as the OnePlus 8 Pro. Currently the Mi 10 Pro however does go for around 760€ "

    I'm sure you meant "Mi 10" and not "Mi 10 Pro" in the last sentence. But you should also revise the first one to say something like "Overall, are these phones worth it?"

    My comment was shorter than your review and you didn't bother to read it entirely before leaping to a conclusion so speak for yourself. I specifically pointed out the headline is laughably disconnected.

    The comments section is for posting opinions first, and (maybe) reading later :P

    A recursive photo (photo of a phone displaying the article, including that phone) would be a great cover image for your photo review. A little more work, but more fun.

    I had high hopes that they would work on their mistakes (From the Mi 9. I use one) but looks like they have not. Their phones are absolutely stellar but whoever decides or manages their software implementation are a bunch of retards. It took almost a year for them to correct a simple self timer feature on the stock camera app, to bring it up to the industry standard 10 seconds. The options were only 3 and 5 seconds which is almost useless. No matter what you do, the camera software simply can't stay off skin tones. It has to interfere. Then there are random marketing advertisements that pop up. Some can be inappropriate. Why screw things up with a flagship device? For as long as you have such flaws, you can forget about more people buying your top tier phone. I'll probably keep buying their phones cause I am cheap but you're missing out on a large part of a consumer base due to some serious, though easily addressable flaws.

    I'm not sure why people would choose this with all the data collection issues with Chinese products right now.

    The unit Reviewed was on MIUI 12 ?

    Fudge China.

    I do not see how this can be considered good value even at the street price of 760 euros. For a flagship phone and at 760 euros, I would expect top-notch cameras and a better display. There are so many better alternatives to consider at this price point.
