Hello Mi Fans,
**The Mi 10 Pro i'm trying out is a prototype;Unfinished product. Performance may change in the short future.
Before we go test the SoC let me explain a bit more about Qualcomm,
why they named their processer a Snapdragon and the relationship with Xiaomi.
Qualcomm x Xiaomi:
Inside the Mi 10 Pro
Qualcomm launched the SD865 in december 2019. This 'System on Chip' will follow up its predecessor which was installed in Flagship phones like the Xiaomi Mi 9 & Mi Mix 3 (5G Edition). The Chipset comes with a lot of improvements which should be noticeable when using the Mi 10 Pro.
Comparison specs Snapdragon 865 VS 855
To show you the differences you can check out the table below and see an actual comparison between the SoC's installed in the Mi 10 Pro & Mi 9
For pure tech fans it is amazing to see the technology advance in such a fast pace.
For the normal users, most important is to experience the improvements when using a new device.
To get a good overview of what the SD865 is capable of I will perform a few Benchmark tests.
To get an idea how much you will benefit from using the lastest SoC by Quallcom I will do a straight battle agains his older brother.
Benchmark Battle: Mi 10 Pro vs Mi 9
Mi 10 outshines the Mi9 in performance:
The Mi 9 still show great results in the benchmarks and if you would buy it today it still scores better than many other phones.
But as soon as you put the newer Mi 10 Pro aside...It will be NO MATCH at all.
The SD865 scores much higher on all assets except for the accuracy in doing AI tasks.
I do believe this will be optimized very soon as the model i'm testing is still a prototype.
Wifi Speedtest Mi 10 Pro vs Mi 9
To test if the Mi10 pro does benefit from the new modem I did a speedtest battle with the Mi9.
I did a run of 12 tests, one after eachother, on the same network.
Out of all tests the Mi 10 pro clearly got a better download speed.
The upload wasn't that exciting with little diffrences.
Any type of user will benefit from the power of the SD865:
I'm a type of person that uses his phone for almost everything.
It's my source to information, my guide for navigation.
It's my gate to home automation, music entertainment and worldwide communication.
I write content and compose videos as a hobby on my phone.
The only tasks i use my desktop for is editing pictures in photoshop and moderate, publish articles on Xiaomi's Mi Community.
As soon as the Mi 10 Pro arrived i took the simcard out of my daily driver and switched to this BEAST!
I notice the power inside this phone as everything works so smooth and fast.
Especially when using the video editor tool PowerDirector:
Adding large files goes much faster compared to the Mi9 (Who does a great job too, don't get me wrong).
Producing a video and export it saves quit some time.
Give the sd865 a task, it will handle it without a problem
I'm really impressed with its capabilities.
Do you like to play games, edit videos, checking out all kinds of (social) mediachannels...
No matter what's your purpose, you will notice improvements and clearly benefit from its performance!
