Xiaomi Mi 10/ Mi 10 Pro (the current photo king)

Xiaomi has released the Mi 10 and 10 Pros today

Like with the Mi 8 and Mi 9, the Mi 10 has flagship specs at a significantly lower cost than the competition

The 10 Pro had also received the highest score ever from DXO https://www.dxomark.com/xiaomi-mi-10-pro-camera-review/

While dxo provide detailed technical review of the smartphone camera capabilities, the actual photo (and its content) result is always subjective.

Just take a look at the results of 2019 camera blind tests by MKHD and Androidpit

I'm looking for a deal on the mi 10 or the pro too!!! That's why I'm looking here! The international version gets released 23rd Feb, hopefully we can buy the phones from AliExpress then.

When do we expect to see deals? 11/11 gets amazing deals, but what's a closer date before that do we expect to get deals?

What do you consider a good deal? This phone will be significantly more money than the Mi 9. I would expect the global pro to be around $1k

Yeah, you're right. And Mi10 will be $750-800.

At those prices, I will pass...I don't need 5G(yet) and 865 SoC.

I'm looking at the already released Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Pro, it seems to have even better cameras than the Mi 10 Pro.

https://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?& ... one1=10055

Everything else Mi 10 Pro is better, but only slightly.

For me camera's are the most important features for a phone. How can DXO rate Mi 10 Pro better than the note?

Note has a massive 32mp front facing camera

Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Pro:
108 MP (8P lens), f/1.7, 25mm (wide), 1/1.33", 0.8µm, PDAF, Laser AF, OIS
12 MP, f/2.0, 50mm (telephoto), 1/2.55", 1.4µm, Dual Pixel PDAF, Laser AF, 2x optical zoom
5 MP (upscaled to 8MP), f/2.0, (telephoto), 1.0µm, PDAF, Laser AF, OIS, 5x optical zoom
20 MP, f/2.2, 13mm (ultrawide), 1/2.8", 1.0µm, Laser AF
2 MP, f/2.4, (macro), 1/5.0", 1.75µm

Mi 10 Pro:
108 MP, f/1.7, (wide), 1/1.33", 0.8µm, PDAF, Laser AF, OIS
8 MP, f/2.0, (telephoto), 1.0µm, PDAF, Laser AF, OIS, 10x hybrid optical zoom
12 MP, f/2.0, (portrait), 1/2.55", 1.4µm, dual pixel PDAF, 2x optical zoom
20 MP, f/2.2, 13mm (ultrawide)

As you can see, the Note numbers are all higher, with even one more front camera.

details specs for the Note:

for a deal, i'd call 15% for a phone less than 3 months old good. For the Mi 10 Pro, if we get to see 20% to 30% off within 4 months, that would be amazing, i doubt that can happen.
If we need to wait for more than half a year, by around later this year, xiaomi will likely release another xiaomi or redmi phone that will rival the specs of this one, at a much cheaper price point. like the Mi 9T pro from last year.

Are you seriously trying to say more megapixels is automatically better? For that front camera, they're cramming in more than 50% more pixels on the Note with only a bit bigger sensor size.

For the other cameras, specs are different as well, and Xiaomi may have inferior image processing on the Note. Bottom line, specs alone don't tell you how good a camera is.

With the exception of the main camera module (which is the same) every other module is better on the Mi 10. Megapixels mean nothing.
