Xiaomi’s Mi 10 Ultra is the New DxOMark King

Ahead of its official launch, DxOMark revealed its official scores for the Mi 10 Ultra, and Xiaomi’s latest premium flagship offering is crowned as the new top dog with its overall score of 130. Its score is two points higher than the Huawei P40 Pro and six points higher than the Mi 10 Pro—despite not having a 108-megapixel main rear camera.

To round up, the Mi 10 Ultra’s quad-rear camera setup consists of a 48-megapixel f/1.85 main camera with PDAF EIS, 20-megapixel f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle camera with PDAF, 48-megapixel f/4.1 periscope camera with 5x optical zoom, PDAF, and OIS, and a 12-megapixel f/2.0 portrait camera with 2x optical zoom and Dual Pixel AF.

Checking through the scores, the Mi 10 Ultra scored an incredible 142 for Photo. For the sub-categories, the Mi 10 Ultra aced it at Zoom with its 117 score. That high score is credited to its 48-megapixel periscope camera, which boasts of a 5x optical zoom and a 120mm focal length equivalent.

Paired with a 20-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens that has a 12mm focal length equivalent, the Mi 10 Ultra has the most versatile zoom range in any smartphone. DxOMark mentioned that the Mi 10 Ultra’s periscope camera has one of the best image quality for a telephoto lens, citing only some loss of texture and slightly increased noise levels at the long end and at the ultra-wide-angle end.

Aside from photo, the Mi 10 Ultra also set the benchmark for Video with its 106 score. For that score, DxOMark commends the Mi 10 Ultra’s performance at 4K60 video recording, citing that it is one of the best phones DxOMark has tested for video.
