We as users and buyers have it increasingly difficult to choose a new mobile. Brands continue to adjust more closely to achieve the best value for money for their customers. Which leads us to be able to find different high-end terminals in the market with very seductive prices, as it is in this case with the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro and the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE .
Although, the good thing about this great competition that exists between different manufacturers is that we are at a time when devices with really good characteristics are found at lower prices compared to what happened just years ago. Therefore, we wanted to see the differences that exist between these high-end terminals from Xiaomi and Samsung.
Great competition in design and displays
If we take a look at its panels, we find both terminals have similar sizes, but it is the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro that has a larger panel, since it has 6.67 inches with a FullHD + resolution . On the part of the S20 FE, it reaches 6.5 inches, also with FullHD + resolution. And those are not the only differences between these two terminals, since the Xiaomi has a refresh rate of 144 Hz, compared to the 120 Hz of the Samsung.
Of course, both are protected with Gorilla Glass 5 , and in the frame / screen ratio, the Mi 10 takes the cake with a percentage of 85.2% compared to 84.8% of the Galaxy S20 FE. They also both feature a 20: 9 wide aspect ratio.
In terms of dimensions and weight, we also find notable differences. In this case, it is the Galaxy S20 FE that wins the featherweight award with its 190 grams , compared to the 218 grams of its rival. It also offers a slightly less thickness with its 8.4 mm compared to the 9.3mm of the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro.
Level playing field in performance
By lifting the hood of these terminals to take a closer look at their processors, we find that both have made the same bet. This is because both Xiaomi and Samsung have the power of the Snapdragon 865 , which became the most powerful Android processor of all 2020. Also, both phones went on sale with versions of 8 GB of RAM, having the option to choose between 128 or 256 GB of internal memory.
Although, the S20 FE is the only one that allows you to expand this capacity through microSD cards and also has a 6 GB version of RAM. And another feature in which they are also tied is in the faster file reading speed, since both are accompanied by UFS 3.1 .
While it is true that performance at the highest level is assured in both devices, the Xiaomi would be a few steps ahead of its opponent. If we take a look at its scores in a performance benchmark such as AnTuTu, we see that the Galaxy S20 FE has reached peaks that exceed 620,000 points and, on the other hand, the Mi 10T Pro touches 680,000 points . An important difference when we reach these performance heights, so in this matter the Xiaomi would clearly win.
Very different cameras
But where we find big differences between these two high-end phones is in their cameras. We can see how the Galaxy S20 FE sports a triple rear camera , with a 12-megapixel main sensor, an 8-megapixel telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor. While, the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro, it can boast a 108-megapixel sensor, a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor, as well as a 5-megapixel macro lens.
Once on the front, the two mobile devices come with a hole in the panel to house the selfie camera . In this case, it is the Galaxy S20 FE that can show more muscle with its 32 megapixels, compared to the 20 megapixels of the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro.
The options for configuring video recording are also different. Both have the ability to record video in 4K at 60 fps , however, only the Mi 10T Pro can do so in 8K resolution at 30 fps. However, the tables are turned with the front camera, since it is the S20 FE that can make video recordings in 4K resolution.
Connections and battery
Regarding the connections of these terminals we can rest assured, since none lacks something as important as compatibility with 5G . Also, both come accompanied with Bluetooth (5.0 in the S20 FE and 5.1 in the Mi 10T Pro), NFC and USB Type-C. Another similar detail in both is that neither has a 3.5mm headphone jack, but they do have a fingerprint sensor on the screen to improve security.
In the battery section, the S20 FE lags somewhat behind with its 4,500 mAh with 25W fast charging, 15W wireless charging and 4.5W reverse wireless charging. Since the Mi 10T Pro has the same charging capacities and has 4,780 mAh , but we must also add that it is accompanied by a charging technology of 30W for fast charging, 30W for wireless charging and 5W for wireless charging. reverse. Likewise, it is important to note that the two mobiles move with the last layers of their respective manufacturers.
An important difference in their prices
On the one hand, we have the 128 GB S20 FE, which can currently be purchased at Amazon for a price of 659 euros , while the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro with the same RAM memory is much cheaper, as we can buy it in the same portal. at a price of 499 euros .
We have seen several similarities and differences between the two devices , both at the camera level and even in the battery capacity or on their screens. So perhaps these differences are enough to know which device to choose and decide whether or not to pay for that difference in price.
