The Impressive Xiaomi 10i mi review

Xiaomi 10i mi

Xiaomi Mi 10i comes with a KES 25000 price tag and a 108 MP camera. 

It sports a blue and peach color, 5G capability, and a big battery that makes it undercut the competition from Samsung M51

Xiaomi expects the Mi 10i to make the brand more enthralling and approachable this year. 

Xiaomi Mi 10i Specifications

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G processor
  • 6.67-inch full HD+ display with 120 Hz refresh rate
  • 108MP+8MP+2MP+2MP camera
  • 16MP camera
  • 6GB or 8GB RAM + 64GB or 128GB storage
  • 6.67-inch full HD+ display with 120 Hz refresh rate
  • 4820 mAh battery with 33W fast-charging

The Mi 10i combines blue and peach to bring forth a unique color that mirrors the pacific sunrise. This might not be a cup of tea for many Kenyans who prefer their phones to stand out with elegant black or white colors.

I, however, found the half-blue and half-peach color exciting and enough to die for. 

Xiaomi Mi 10i creates variety with the plated glass at the back. But remember, this blend is prone to fingerprints that may make the overall look appear dingy if not cleaned. 

The slick phone boasts a dotted camera right at the front. An accurate fingerprint scanner is plated beneath the home button ready to shower you with accuracy.

The 6.67-inch display made it difficult for me to use the phone with one hand. The display size encouraged me to grab the phone between my two hands, carefully taking in the android experience that Xiaomi promises.

While watching a movie with my phone in portrait mode, the camera bump at the back wasn’t anything to smile about. 

The impressive 108 MP camera 

The soothing 108 MP camera makes Mi 10i intimidatingly impressive considering that it only comes with a price tag of Ksh 25000. The celebrated camera resolution allows you to take excellent photos in well-lit rooms. Contrary to its predecessors, the camera lights up quickly without annoying drag. 

While taking photos outdoors, the camera didn’t fail to shout its shine. The photos, as seen below, popped out, giving me more reasons to take photos using night mode. Clicking photos in selfie mode will certainly guarantee you stunning photos. And if you wish to capture amazing shots and you comprehend your daughter as not being a steady subject, worry not for the Mi Ai will have you covered.

The Mi 10i is a 5G smartphone with Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G. If your glare isn’t fixed in the future the 5G network won’t be of much importance since we won’t be able to seize the added advantages of 5G in Kenya for some time. 

Using the 6GB variant for review, I realized that the performance was faster than greased lightning. I’d switch between social media apps without my hands heating up beneath the device. 

Battery life

Mi 10i packs a 4820 mAh battery that allows you to use your phone without having to worry about when to recharge it.

The phone comes with a 33W charger nestled in the box, an improvement from Xiaomi Mi 9. This appealing smartphone will reach a full charge in one hour. Inside, you’ll see a Li-Po 4820 mAh, non-removable battery. 


Xiaomi has embedded MIUI 12 which pilots new features such as floating notifications. This was particularly more to my taste since it offered me the space to reply to WhatsApp messages without having to switch to the main application. 

It’s worth noting that the screen appears too reflective when you use the phone under the vibrant Nairobi sun.

Despite Xiaomi advertisements claiming not to include add popups on their phone, it’s worth noting that more often than not, the mi 10i might annoy you with ads.

A blaming finger can be pointed to the fact that Xiaomi relies on the advertisement business as a way of offsetting the cost of the hardware. That mentioned, you shouldn’t be surprised when you come across a low-budget Xiaomi phone. 


The phone will guarantee you a grand musical experience, thanks to its stereo speakers. You can tap on the advantages of listening to crispy music with its 3.5mm jack-earphone.

Repairs and spares in Nairobi

The device comes with a major downside in that after rebooting it, the icons will disappear from the home screen for a short while after which they’ll reappear. 

I also noticed that the proximity sensor doesn’t function perfectly in this device. The phone is a universal version.

In the event your Mi 10i gets damaged and demands a repair ranging from screen replacement to software problems, you can reach out to the Xiaomi repair center nestled in Moi avenue, Bihi towers 5th-floor room 9. 


This is a phone worth buying if your budget is below Kes 30,000. I give it 4 stars since the phone is slathered with an impressive performance, 120hz display rate, big battery, and 108 MP camera.
