Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro battery test: 90Hz and 60Hz comparison

The battery of the phone today plays one of the fundamental roles in the choice.And most manufacturers

equip their flagships with batteries with impressive capacities to ensure good battery life.Foreign bloggers conducted a test of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro battery: this novelty canto be the phone with the best battery life this year.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro Battery

As you know, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro receivedbattery capacity 4500 mAh. Apart from this, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro also has one of the fastest charging capabilities of any smartphone. This phone lasts a long time and it doesn't tie you to a cable for long periods of time, but how long does it last?

So bloggers use the same method toall the phones they test. They set the brightness to the same level to level the playing field using special equipment, and conduct tests in the same conditions.

Next, they begin to explore battery lifeworking with your browsing and scrolling test. And they ran the same test twice: once with the default 60Hz refresh rate, and then using the smoother 90Hz refresh rate option. 90 Hz — it's a frequency that makes a difference in gameplay but comes at a significant cost to the battery, especially if the phone manufacturer fails to perform proper optimizations.

So how did the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro perform? To say everything went well would be an understatement. Here are the results …

Comparison at 60 Hz and 90 Hz:

Test result 60 Hz — 14 hours and 12 minutes

Test result 90 Hz — 12 hours and 31 minutes

This is incredible!The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro easily takes the top spot in their own battery rankings, beating out heavyweights like the iPhone 11 Pro Max (almost 4,000 mAh battery) and Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra (5,000 mAh battery). What's interesting is that its 90 hertz ratings are about as good. Great job, Xiaomi!

And by comparing 60 Hz with 90 Hz, youYou notice that the difference between the indicators is 1 hour 41 minutes, which means that when you select the 90 Hz option, you lose about 12% of the battery life. This is not a small number, but not a huge one. For comparison, the 120 Hz option in the S20 series reduces battery life by about 25-30% compared to 60 Hz mode. While in the case of the Galaxy, many would have thought about a significant reduction in battery life, choosing the 90 Hz option is not difficult.

YouTube video streaming — this testmeasures what most people do every day: streaming videos on YouTube. The purpose of this test — give an accurate estimate of how long each phone will last for video streaming, given that there is a difference in battery usage compared to simply scrolling the Internet. Playing videos is more challenging, and the phone also uses the speaker, so the load on the battery is higher.

The good news is that Xiaomi MiThe 10 Pro does a great job on this test too, scoring a stunning 11 hours and 30 minutes. This beats the current record holder Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra by a full hour. To say that this phone lasts a long time — understatement.

3D games. And the last test for gamers.In this test we compare the battery life of phones for 3D gaming. Think about games like Fortnite, PubG, Minecraft, Call of Duty and others. Interestingly, in the 60Hz 3D gaming test, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro scored exactly 10 hours. That's just a few minutes less than what we got on the OnePlus 8, which is powered by the same Snapdragon 865 chipset with the same powerful Adreno 650 graphics chip, and given the same 1080p resolution on both phones, it makes sense that the results are similar.

Also curious to see how Xiaomi Mi 10 Procan significantly outperform the Exynos-based Galaxy S20 Ultra, and it also looks more energy efficient in 3D gaming loads compared to the iPhone 11 family.

Fast charge

Mi 10 Pro supports record charging speedsup to 50 W. Hearing numbers like 50W fast charging is incredible for smartphones that only a few years ago charged at 5W speeds. And Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro — one of the phones that pushes the boundaries.

The phone comes with a charger for 65Watts, which supports the Power Delivery standard, but the phone is limited to only slightly lower speeds of up to 50 watts. Interestingly, Xiaomi mentions that you can freely use this charger to charge a compatible laptop or tablet. A stand-alone charger with such power often costs from $ 50, so it's great that Xiaomi delivers it in the kit.

As always, fast charging speed for the phoneis 50 watts at the start of charging, while when a sufficient amount of charger is reached, usually around 70%, the speeds are reduced to much slower to protect the battery from wear.

Charging speed

in 15 minutes — charge 44%

in 30 minutes — 78%

in 47 minutes — full 100% charge

The Mi 10 Pro also supports extremely fast 30W wireless charging. This is faster than wired charging on many phones.
