Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra looks pretty good in design with Mi 10T Pro, which I use for review during this period, but it comes with 4 cameras and a 120W wireless charging and 50W wireless. Xiaomi promises that the phone will charge (on wire) up to 41% in 5 minutes, and a full charge takes 23 minutes.

Warm impressions

Mi 10 Ultra looks and moves great. The drop-down menu in the top bar does not look like the usual Android one, but the iOS one. The screen is super bright, has good colors and high contrast, and in games it moves perfectly and has a sound to match. Speaking of sound, the Mi 10 Ultra has stereo speakers, an audio jack and sound 24-bit/192kHz. I played a Call of Duty match on it and the borderless screen feel is very pleasant. It feels big and heavy in the hand, it also has a silicone case included, and the screen is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. With the current operating system, adjusted for the Chinese market, it does not support Google services. To install applications I used the market APTOIDE.

By comparison, the Mi 10T Pro, in the same test, 3D Mark, Sling Shot Extreme, scored 6003 points.

I also made a short 8K video, but Youtube displays it at a maximum of 1080, and Vimeo in 4K.

See HERE a gallery with more photos taken with Mi 10 Ultra.

The camera is complete in terms of subject coverage (near or far) and has lots of useful or fun extra options. I noticed that it can shoot with any 2 cameras, out of the 5, at the same time and that it has several beautification / adjustment options. It can make you slimmer, for example. It also has some helpful options for short videos, which are usually found in apps like Tik-Tok or Instagram.

The price of the tested model, the version with 128 GB of storage, in China, is around 900 dollars. Currently, the Mi 10 Ultra is not officially available outside of China, but a simple Google search appears in the offer of a local store.
