hey what’s up guys will here for flagship market with this new me 10s 5g it brings a 108 megapixel camera tech that mi made headlines with last summer as well as plenty of other premium features can he give Samsung and Apple a run for their money let’s find out in our full review with the me 10s 5g there’s no doubt that you’re gazing upon a premium device it’s made of gently curved Gorilla Glass 5 and it has a solid aluminum frame our 10s is in the Solstice gray finish for now the device comes strictly in matte color options while it isn’t so flashy it still looks great when they catches the light the finish feels great to silky smooth the phone is quite thin at the edges and the sharpness adds a bit of grip as well there’s something missing here as a flagship and that’s ip68 dust and water resistance there is some splash proofing in the design but you don’t get the same peace of mind you would with some competitors do me 10 pros screen is curved to be symmetrical to the back panel and it’s protected by the same Gorilla Glass 5 it’s a tall point 6.7 inch OLED with a tiny punch hole for the Silva cam up in the corner high refresh rate screens are all the rage these days and the me temp Rose fits the bill with this 144 Hertz refresh rate it makes moving element seems silky smooth to the eye the screen resolution however is only 1080p which isn’t quite up to par with the competition nevertheless everything looks pretty sharp blacks are super deep and you have lively colors which can also be said to be quite accurate in settings this display also has up to 510 mins and up to 816 it’s in auto mode when out in the Sun so on the visual side of things the experience is great on this device but Xiaomi has taken care of the audio side as well with its dedicated stereo speakers rather than having the earpiece as one of the speakers here you get an speaker on the top and bottom this means that they’re well balance and in tests the sound quality was the good that we’ve had on a phone so far the phone also scored very good in loudness. if you’d rather use earphones instead you won’t find a 3.5 millimeter jack here a USB adapter should come in the retail package or you can use USB C or wireless headphones unlocking the me 10 s is super easy it uses the latest generation of under display optical fingerprint sensor and it responds fast .
based on android 10 the interface is quite clean and blowed free at least in our global version of the phone as you’d expect from xiaomi there’s no app drawer so your apps will be on the home screen if you stick to this default launcher there’s a dark mode which looks snazzy and also can save you some battery on an OLED display.
you don’t get expandable storage on this device so you have to make deal with what’s onboard you do get plenty though with options for 256 or 512 gigs there are also a couple of other features worth mentioning there’s an IR blaster which you can use to control appliances with and there’s also support for NFC for connectivity or mobile payments as a flagship you’d expect nothing less than cutting-edge performance and the me 10 s doesn’t disappoint here it runs on a snapdragon 865 which supports full 5g connectivity benchmark performance is among the best out there and the gaming performance here is great especially with games that support the 90 Hertz screen refresh rate and while the phone does get warm after long sessions.
we didn’t notice any meaningful throttling powering all this is a large 4,500 million power battery it does an excellent job the me 10 s scored an excellent endurance rating of a hundred and one hours and hour battery life tests that was with the screen at 90 Hertz dialing it down to 60 Hertz resulted in the score of a hundred and five hours the comes bundled with a laptop grade 65 watt USB C charger even though the phone only supports up to 50 watts still we didn’t have any problems and we were able to charge from zero to 77% in just half an hour you also get support for fast wireless charging up to 100 watts which you can achieve with one of shammies proprietary charging pads then me 10s 5 G has a high-end quad camera setup on the back not unlike the one you’d find on the 10 this is a 108 megapixel quad bear main camp then there are 2 telephoto cans an 8 megapixel 5 x one and a 12 megapixel finally there’s a 20 megapixel ultra wide snapper with auto focus like we’ve done with some other phones with advanced camera systems here we’ll have more of a camera summary and we’ll have a full camera review in a separate video shots from the main camera come out in 25 megapixels and these are simply awesome among the best we’ve seen from a smartphone. yet plus the sensors large size means that you get a shallow depth of field handy for taking some artistic looking shots as far as zoom goes the 12 megapixel 2 x telephoto takes flagship grade photos which are not only high in quality.
5 times zoom and basically everything about these shots is great except that deep down we can’t forget that the camera has a 100 times zoom and crops the center of the sensor to achieve 5 times at night the main camera takes some really impressive shots even without night mode from closer examination however the details don’t appear as sharp as the competition the same goes for the ultra wide cam at night even more so and in general the 2 times zoom is done digitally in low-light instead of using the dedicated camera the 5 times zoom does work in low-light actually it’s photos are great they’re probably the best night time zoom shots we’ve seen yet they’re taken with the 20 megapixel quad bear selfie cam these are good but nothing too impressive as far as sharpness is concerned the me time s has a ton of video recording options including the ability to shoot an 8k at 40fps with a main cam but even if you had a means to play it back in his native resolution the HD footage isn’t that detail wise and it gobbles up storage like there is no tomorrow in contrast 4k video from the main cam 12 megapixel telephoto camera an ultra wide camera are great totally flag worthy the 8 megapixel telephoto with a 5 times zoom can be used to take video so that’s the me 10 s 5 G who would have thought that Xiaomi known for is more budget-friendly phones could offer one of the most cutting-edge devices on the market right now you get a beautiful build a high refresh rate OLED screen exceptional stereo speakers top-notch performance excellent battery life with fast charging and one of the best camera experiences you can buy basically the only things missing here are full waterproofing and expandable storage also the selfie cam is alright but not the best but still these are just nitpicks let’s talk price though at a thousand euros this is up there with the most expensive Xiaomi phones ever made but this is a flagship after all and it comes with the territory if you’re okay with that then the me 10 s definitely deserves a recommendation thanks for watching guys stay safe and see you on the next one. by kunal verma
