The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro achieved a DXOMARK Camera score of 124, making it the new leader in the review agency's smartphone camera image quality ranking.
DXOMARK said in its review report that image results are quite similar to last year's CC9 Pro Premium Edition, but thanks to the more powerful Snapdragon 865 chipset and refined tuning the Mi 10 Pro's performance is excellent for Photo and Video alike.
When capturing still images, target exposure is stable and accurate. Color is excellent overall, with generally accurate white balance when shooting outdoors in bright light and in indoor situations.
The Mi 10 Pro is capable of capturing excellent detail and at 85 points, earns itself the new top score for Texture. Performance is again very similar to the CC9 Premium Edition, but the Mi 10 Pro has just an edge with a slight improvement that is most noticeable in low light.
The Mi 10 Pro also manages noise very well, but some fine luminance noise tends to be visible in the shadow regions of the frame, especially when shooting under indoor conditions.
With a Video score of 104, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is our new top-ranked device for moving image capture. Its 4K video mode is even better than the already excellent implementation on the CC9 Pro Premium Edition, with improved detail rendering and even more efficient video stabilization, the review said.
If anyone still needed convincing that Xiaomi is one of the top camera designers in the mobile business after the Mi CC9 Pro Premium Edition's stellar performance at the end of last year, the Mi 10 Pro should definitely cement Xiaomi's reputation.
Despite using very similar imaging hardware as the Premium Edition, Xiaomi managed to improve the Mi 10 Pro in several key areas, thanks to a combination of refined tuning and the processing boost of the Snapdragon 865 chipset.
The new device's camera delivers excellent (and sometimes class-leading) results in virtually all test categories, making it a top choice for any mobile photography or videography enthusiast, as well as a very deserving new leader in our DXOMARK Camera ranking.
