Xiaomi Mi 10i 5G Review – Launched in India, Specifications, and Price In India.

Xiaomi Mi 10i 5G is the latest addition to Xiaomi’s Mi 10 lineup and is also the cheapest Mi 10 available buy as of now, and it borrows all of its specs from the recently released Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G, with the only difference being that the Mi 10i is manufactured in India as part of the Make in India initiative.

Here is a Detailed Specification Overview and Review of the Xiaomi Mi 10i 5G.

Design and Build Quality

mi 10i

The design same as that of the Redmi Note 9 5G, it has the same circular camera module at the top center, which houses a Quad camera setup with flash being out of the circular camera module and the Mi branding at the bottom center.

The Design is very, and the Pacific Sunrise model is even equipped with Anti-glare back which doesn’t retain any fingerprint on the back, but the other black and blue model, have a glossy back, which is a fingerprint magnet, on the front we have a punch-hole display, with the punch-hole at the center, which is the not the best position to put the punch-hole it would have been excellent if it has been placed at the top left corner.

The Build Quality is good, the front and the back are protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5, and the frame is made of plastic.

The Phone is heavy at 215 Grams and is also thick, so it’s not comfortable to use if you have small hands, but the Build quality is surely top class.


Mi 10i has a 6.67-Inch IPS-LCD Display, with ~90% Screen to Body Ratio, a native resolution of 1080X2400 Pixels, a 20:9 Aspect Ratio.
With a pixel density of 395 PPI, the display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5, supports HDR 10+, and has a 120Hz Refresh Rate Panel
and Widevine L1 certified for your HD streaming needs.

The Display is great, and with Adaptive sync, it can easily switch between 60 and 120Hz.


Mi 10i is powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G 5G, It’s an Octa-Core SoC with 2×2.2 GHz Kryo 570 & 6×1.8 GHz Kryo 570 coupled with Adreno 619 GPU.

The 750G is an excellent SoC, scoring over 340000 in the Antutu benchmark, for comparison the SD 765G scores round 320000 in the same benchmark, so there will be no issues in performance, at least for the next 2 years.

Memory and Storage

Redmi Note 9 Pro has two memory options, 6/8GB of LPDDR4X RAM, and two storage options 128/256GB of UFS2.2 storage.


Mi 10i has a Quad Camera setup.
108 MP, f/1.8, (Wide Lens)
8 MP, f/2.2, (Ultrawide Lens)
2 MP, f/2.4, (Macro Lens)
2 MP, f/2.4, (Depth Sensor)

Video Recording Options include
[email protected], [email protected]/60fps

For Selfies, it has a 16 MP Shooter.

The 108MP Lens in pixel binned at 9:1, so the shots from the primary lens come at 12MP.
The shots from the primary camera are excellent, they are very close to the original Mi 10 in normal lighting conditions.
In Low/Night light, the performance is good, the colors were accurate and sharp, but it’s nowhere near the Mi 10.

The Ultrawide shots are also excellent, they are crisp, sharp and very detailed, one of the best in this price range

Selfies are social media ready, there is always some skin smoothing happening in the shots, so there not close to the original and looks edited.


Mi 10i has a 4820mAh battery with 33-W Fast charging.

It will easily last you for around 2 days with moderate usage, and with the 33-W fast charger you can go from 0 to 100% in under 60 mins.


Stereo dual speakers
Hi-Res Audio certification

The Audio is great, volumes are loud, and the vocals are crisp, but start to distort at very high volumes.
