All the latest flagship smartphones launched from Xiaomi, Samsung and OnePlus come in more than one variant. Given the higher prices of top-tier flagships compared to a few years ago, these smartphone manufacturers decided to release different variants in order to meet the needs of the highest amount of potential customers. In this comparison, we compared the base versions of the Xiaomi Mi 10 and Samsung Galaxy S20 series which can be defined as affordable flagships. We also added the latest OnePlus flagship: OnePlus 7T Pro. We included the Pro version since it is the only 2019 smartphone and its base variant comes with inferior specifications. Is it better to choose one of the latest base variants from Samsung and Xiaomi or a 2019 Pro device from OnePlus? This comparison will clear your ideas.

Given that it is the only to feature a 120 Hz refresh rate and it comes with a high Quad HD+ resolution and a new Dynamic AMOLED panel with impressive image quality, Samsung Galaxy S20 is the device with the most interesting display. But note that you can use the 120 Hz refresh rate only with the Full HD+ resolution, while if you want to use the Quad HD+ resolution you will have to stick to 60 Hz. OnePlus 7T Pro takes the second place with a Quad HD+ resolution and a 90 Hz refresh rate. But Xiaomi Mi 10 still offers an amazing panel with a 90 Hz refresh rate, HDR10+, and a 180 Hz touch sampling rate.


Xiaomi Mi 10 and Samsung Galaxy S20 feature a superior chipset to OnePlus 7T Pro and, unlike the OnePlus 7T Pro, they support 5G (optional on the Galaxy S20). In its most expensive variant, Xiaomi Mi 10 has superior hardware to the Samsung Galaxy S20 since it comes in a higher-end memory configuration with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage. In each case, you get Android 10 out of the box.

On the paper, Xiaomi Mi 10 looks more convincing than Samsung Galaxy S20 when it comes to the camera setup, but we will have to test both thoroughly to make our definitive conclusions. OnePlus 7T Pro is inferior to both even if we talk about cameras.

The huge 4780 mAh battery and its efficient display with a lower resolution make the Xiaomi Mi 10 the king of battery life in this comparison. Xiaomi Mi 10 also comes with faster charging and wireless charging technologies, and it even supports reverse wireless charging.
