The Mi 10 Ultra is Xiaomi’s 10th-anniversary flagship smartphone. This handset was unveiled in August 2020 and is exclusive to China.

Now, the device loses big time on DXOMARK Selfie by scoring only 88 points.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra DXOMARK Selfie

The DXOMARK team has finally published the selfie review of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra. According to it, the smartphone ranks distant 22nd by bagging 88 points. In other words, the front-facing camera on this phone is simply mediocre, as per the review.

The Mi 10 Ultra comes equipped with a single punch-hole selfie camera located at the top left side of the handset’s curved OLED display supplied by TCL CSOT. It is a 20MP 1/3.4-inch fixed-focus sensor with an f/2.3 lens capable of capturing images of up to 20 megapixels and recording videos up to a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels (FHD) at 30 fps.

Talking about performance, the device scores 86 points for photos and 91 points for videos respectively. The camera outputs pictures with accurate exposure (generally) on faces, and neutral white balance under most conditions.

But due to limited dynamic range, highlights are clipped in both photos and videos. Moreover, the images also suffer from noise (especially in low light), hue shit, flare, color quantization, inconsistent flash exposure, and unnatural blur effect in portrait mode.

As for videos, they have effective stabilization, well-controlled noise, accurate exposure, nice skin tones in both outdoor as well as indoor conditions, and good detail under bright light.


However, just like with the stills, the phone’s selfie camera also has several cons in video recording such as facial detail loss (especially in low light), occasional unnatural colors as well as skin tones, jello effect, and unnatural skin tones in low light.

All in all, the Mi 10 Ultra’s front-facing camera is no match for the competitors. But the smartphone’s rear camera setup makes up for it.
