Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro debuted on 13th February with a superb combination of versatile cameras, cutting-edge video recording technology, gaming-friendly processor and many more advanced features. On the same date Xiaomi has launched another flagship phone Mi 10. Though both smartphones look almost similar, the ‘pro’ version overwhelms with some exclusive features. The Xiaomi Mi series happens to be the flagship phone line of Xiaomi Corporation. Headquartered in Beijing, this prominent Chinese electronics brand has acquired worldwide reputation for manufacturing top quality electronic products since its establishment in 2010.
Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro comes with 6.67-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen. It features amazing image quality (1080 x 2340 pixels with 386 ppi density) with comfy resolution (19.5:9). Xiaomi has applied Gorilla Glass 5 to build this flagship mobile handset. Not to mention, 89.8 percent of screen-to-body ratio makes this gadget more attractive. Xiaomi’s other flagship mobile Mi 10 also shares the same configuration.
The 180 Hz touch sensing technology of Mi 10 and Mi 10 pro will offer you smooth user experience. Moreover, these flagship Mi smartphones come with HDR10+ technology with 500 nits brightness, which will certainly make the gaming interface and movies more realistic.
Are you curious about the gaming performance of Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro? Good news is both Smartphones are blessed with Adreno 650 Graphics Unit which will deliver marvelous graphics quality whether you play games, movies or video clips. Furthermore, both smartphones are equipped with the Qualcomm SM8250 Snapdragon 865 processor (7 nm+), which can run the advanced online games with superb fluency. What is more? The Android 10 Operating system (MIUI 11) makes these Mi phones highly compatible to operate with the up-to-date apps, programs, and software.
And, thanks to the manufacturer for providing huge storage in these flagship Mi phones. Both Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro come in three versions. Their RAM capacity ranges from 8GB to 12GB. Starting from 128 GB, the storage of Mi 10 ranges up to 256GB; whereas, the Pro version reaches up to 512GB initiating from 256 GB. These Mi hotshots literally out win their predecessors with the LPDDR5 RAM technology. This is certainly a bonus for the crazy gamers.
Both phones are equipped with the latest version (UFS 3.0) of Universal Flash Storage technology. However, none of these Mi phones has a card slot insertion option for memory expansion. But this doesn’t seem a huge issue at all, as the provided storage capacities seem enough for regular use.
Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro comes with a standard power pack of Li-Po 4500 mAh battery. This is the only point where Mi 10 surpasses its ‘Pro’ counterpart. The battery life of Mi 10 will last slightly longer utilizing its Li-Po 4780 mAh battery. However, in the battle of quick charging, Mi 10 Pro is the winner, as it comes with 50W fast battery charging against Mi 10’s 30W capacity. Both phones are capable of 10W wireless charging, which is certainly an added advantage for the people who are always on the move.
Like the ancestor Mi Note 10, 108 MP prime camera sensor is available in both Mi 10 and its Pro version. It won’t be overwhelming to say, you can start professional photography with these hot shot camera phones. However, we have found contrasts while comparing the camera sensors of these phones. Mi 10 is provided with a 13MP ultra-wide sensor aiming to capture landscape views. But Mi 10 Pro’s ultra-wide camera steals the show with 20MP sensor.
If you want to shoot at a long distance target, go for the Mi 10 Pro. Its 8MP Telephoto sensor with 10x hybrid optical zoom is a gem for outdoor/bird/wildlife photography. Furthermore, the Pro version’s 12MP portrait sensor is blessed with double zooming capacity, which is no less than a windfall for those who love to capture moments every now and then. On the other hand, Mi 10 would be great for detailed photography by virtue of its macro and depth cameras both featuring 2MP sensors.
These Mi Flagships won’t disappoint the selfie-lovers. Both Mi 10 and the Pro have 20MP front camera (selfie). However, we have found this configuration in some other competitors, like Galaxy S10 Lite. What makes both the Mi 10 and 10 Pro out stand from their similar priced competitors is their 8K video recording feature. Only expensive competitors like the Galaxy S20 series have such an opportunity today.
Xiaomi didn’t provide any 3.5mm Headphone Jack with the Mi 10 and the Pro Smartphone, which may dishearten many Mi fans! These Mi phones come with Stereo Speakers. The latest 5.1 Bluetooth technology keeps both Mi 10 and the Pro one step ahead from the competitors. Adding to these, taking the advantage of USB 2.0 type-C port of these Mi phones you can transfer data at terrific speed.

The price of Mi 10 starts from $573 for 8GB/128GB storage. For 8GB/256GB storage price hits at $616. The price maximizes $673 for 12GB/256GB storage capacity. To put the Mi 10 Pro (8GB/256GB) in your pocket you have to spend a minimum $716. Pushing the budget a little further ($787), you can get better internal memory (12GB/256GB). However, if you need more space, take Mi 10 Pro’s top-of-the-line item featuring 12GB/512GB storage capacity, which costs around $859.
Samsung Bangladesh has launched the Galaxy S20+ and S20 Ultra, Flagship powerhouses which pack unprecedented specs with cameras that will rewrite the history of photography.
Two models of Galaxy S20 series will be available from today (Sunday) for pre-order: the 6.7-inch Galaxy S20+ and the 6.9-inch Galaxy S20 Ultra.
Each features revolutionary design that is topped off by the latest innovations of Samsung’s mobile display leadership and mobile camera craftsmanship.
The smartphones will be available for pre-order in two eye-catching colors. Galaxy S20+ will come in Cosmic Black and Cloud Blue, whereas Galaxy S20 Ultra will come in Cosmic Grey and Cosmic Black. The Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra are offered at a price of BDT 99,999 and BDT 129,999 respectively.
Samsung on Tuesday unveiled a new foldable phone, the Galaxy Z Flip, its second attempt to sell consumers on phones with bendable screens and clamshell designs.
The company announced the phone at the start of a product event in San Francisco. The new phone can unfold from a small square upward into a traditional smartphone form, and will go on sale Feb. 14 starting at $1,380.
Samsung's first foldable phone, the Galaxy Fold, finally went on sale last September after delays and reports of screens breaking. The Fold, which carries a price tag of nearly $2,000, folds at a vertical crease rather than horizontally as a flip-phone design would. Motorola has also taken the flip-phone approach with its new $1,500 Razr phone.
The foldable phones represent manufacturers' attempt to energize a market where sales have slowed. Many consumers are holding onto old phones longer, in part because new phone features offer increasingly marginal benefits. But these foldable models come with higher price tags and are likely to appeal for now mostly to tech enthusiasts and others at the forefront of technology.
For everyone else, Samsung offers its S series. As the 2020s kick off, the South Korean company showed off the Galaxy S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra at an event in San Francisco, skipping directly to the 20s from its S10 series.
The S20 phones are designed to take high-quality pictures in dark settings, Samsung product manager Mark Holloway said. The phones can take both video and photos at the same time, using artificial intelligence to zero in on the best moments to capture the still images.
Samsung's renewed focus on the camera follows Apple, whose iPhone 11 phones last fall offered an additional lens for wider-angle shots and combined multiple shots with software to improve low-light images. Google's Pixel phones also offer a similar low-light feature.
Samsung's S phones already offer the wider angle and some features for low-lighting — but Samsung says the new phones will focus on high-resolution photos and the ability to zoom in 30 to 100 times, depending on the model.
The S20 phones are expected to come out in March. Samsung didn't immediately announce prices. Last year's main S10 model went for $900 in the U.S. at launch. For all models, Samsung plans to make versions compatible with next-generation cellular networks, known as 5G, though it's still an early technology that consumers typically won't need yet.
As people packed into San Francisco's Palace of Fine Arts for Samsung's launch event, they passed a team taking remote temperatures in the security line, likely a precaution to check for the coronavirus. Samsung also offered hand sanitizer stations and face masks inside the event lobby.
Grabbing a smartphone at far cheaper than official rate can make you feel like a champ. However, before gloating over this winning deal, check whether your Smartphone is original. Currently, the branded Smartphones are being ‘cloned’. As fake phones ask for cheaper price-tag, many consumers are falling into this trap. If you don’t look carefully, you can hardly discern a fake Smartphone from a real one. Read this article to learn some easy ways to recognize fake or clone smartphone.
The clone Smartphones will try to enthrall you with their dashing appearance. So, don’t buy any Smartphone without proper research. Go to the internet. Choose the best Smartphone that complies with your needs. Next, know the precise specifications of that Smartphone from its official manufacturing website. When your research is done, go to the shop, pick your pre-chosen model and check what features it does offer. If its specifications don’t match with the information provided in its official site, the seller Smartphone is certainly a duplicate.
Though clone Smartphones almost replicate the look of the original ones, you can feel the difference looking closer. You can start with the phone’s display. Check whether it is made of standard glass material as mentioned on its official manufacturing website. You can check out some other factors like, screen to body ratio, screen resolution, video quality, brightness, etc.
Another thing to check is the location, size, shape and placement of different buttons. Find the original phone’s image from official manufacturing website and compare. Do they look similar? If not, you are holding a fake phone!
Besides these, before buying any Smartphone, compare its dimensions and weight with the official information. And, navigate to your chosen model’s manufacturing site to check in what colors it is currently available. If the shopper offers you a new color option, which is not mentioned in the official site, don’t buy it!
When you open any original Smartphone, the screen will initially display its official Logo. If you can’t see the logo at start up, you device is undoubtedly a fake one. Another thing to remember is that each original mobile comes with the branded logo printed on its backside. Touching the logo, it is supposed to feel flat and smooth. In case of a replica mobile, the logo might feel rough and unsmooth.
Monitor the battery life of your current Smartphone to check whether it is original or clone. Usually, the fake Smartphones come with less powerful batteries. How to check a seller Smartphone? It’s easy. Just open the backside of that phone. If it is original, the logo must be printed on the battery. For instance, when the seller Smartphone is manufactured by Nokia, the battery must bear Nokia’s official logo. Otherwise, it is a clone device.

The original phones will never come with any spelling error. So, keep an eye on the language. Go to the specification of the seller Smartphone navigating to its settings option. You can also check the language on Phone Box, battery, etc. which comes with that phone. If you can remove the battery, you will find a sticker mentioning some specifications. Look closer. If there is any spelling mistake anywhere, then the seller phone is certainly a fake one.
Generally, the branded Smartphones offer exciting camera features. Before buying any Smartphone, take snaps with the provided cameras to judge their image quality and resolution. You can post the image on Instagram for taking opinions from friends. You can also compare the quality of image using Internet, where people have shared images taken by the same model phone. Usually, the duplicate Smartphones come with less powerful cameras with limited features. Furthermore, check the look and position of the cameras. Thus you can easily recognize whether the seller Smartphone is original or clone.
When you intend to buy a Smartphone, check out the IMEI number, which is printed over the box. Open the battery. There must be a sticker with IMEI number printed on it. To check the IMEI from any phone type “*#06#” using the dial pad. The display will show one or two IMEI numbers depending on SIM slots. If the seller phone shows no IMEI number, then it is a clone one.
However, some duplicate phones might have fake IMEI numbers. Now how to check it? You can either take a screenshot or write down those numbers. Now login to the IMEI website (https://www.imei.info/imei-checker/) and insert the IMEI number properly. If your Smartphone is original, the IMEI website will show you details specs including brand name, RAM, Processor, storage capacity, etc.
Before going to the shop take another Smartphone with you and install an app called CPU-Z Application. You can also ask your buddy to install this app on his/her phone and accompany you to the shop. When you enter the shop to buy a Smartphone, don’t hassle. Convince the shopper that you need some time to think, test and decide. Then, tactfully install the CPU-Z application from the old Smartphone to the seller phone through ‘Share It’ or Bluetooth. Now you can see the provided specs of the seller Smartphone and compare it with the information provided on its official manufacturing site. Any mismatch of information questions the originality of the seller phone.

The top Smartphone brands usually have some specific codes and tricks to define the originality of their manufactured products. For instance, you can easily check the originality of a Samsung Smartphone. Just go to the type pad and press “*#7353#”. If that phone is original, the system will pop up a menu showing all applications in the listed form. This service code is programmed by the Samsung Engineers, which won’t be available in any fake phone.
When you are willing to buy an Apple Smartphone, try to open the App Store from the seller Smartphone. If it takes you to Google Play Store instead of Apple App Store, then it’s a clear indication that the seller Smartphone is not original. Apple Smartphones are run by iOS instead of android, so it won’t work with Play store.
There is another trick. Before you buy an Apple Smartphone, take a laptop with you and install iTune app on it. Now, connect the seller Smartphone with that laptop. If the seller Apple Smartphone is a clone, it won’t work with iTune.
Nowadays one in every five smartphones comes as a duplicate. Especially, Smartphones built by the top brands like Apple, Samsung, Nokia, Redmi, Xiaomi, etc. are being cloned by the illegal manufacturers. A clone Smartphone can be distinguished from its exterior look, specs, logo, battery, language, etc. Therefore, it is wise to check a Smartphone thoroughly before buying. While you buy any Smartphone from dealers, small shop, or online, don’t forget to check its originality using our discussed apps and websites.
