One of the main features of both smartphones is their respective displays, and each has a fair share of similarities and differences. The Mi 10 Pro 5G has a bigger screen size of 6.6.7-inch AMOLED FHD+ compared to OPPO Ace2’s 6.55-inch OLED. Second, the former is equipped with an AMOLED panel, while the latter only has OLED. However, both handsets have a 90Hz refresh rate, 180Hz of touch response rate, and supports HDR10+, which enhances the color and contrast of videos in its display.
Should you want to have a larger display in AMOLED, go for the Mi 10 Pro 5G. Otherwise, the OPPO Ace2 is for you.
Both with quad-rear cameras, the OPPO Ace2 boasts a circular camera module that houses the 48MP Sony IMX586 main, 8MP ultra-wide, 2MP black and white, and 2 MP depth lenses. Meanwhile, the Mi 10 Pro 5G has an elongated and rectangular camera module located on the left separating the 20MP ultra-wide from the 8MP long telephoto, 12MP short telephoto, and 108MP main lenses. The Mi 10 Pro 5G has a significantly higher main camera sensor, which remains the same in terms of punch-hole, front-facing cameras with the former having a higher 20MP shooter.
When it comes to battery, the Mi 10 Pro 5G wins with its 4,500mAh capacity, which is 500mAh more than the former’s 4,000mAh. But when we put into consideration the fast-charging features of both smartphones, the OPPO Ace2 excels with 65W SuperVOOC wired and 40W AirVOOC wireless fast-charging. This is 15W and 10W more than the Mi 10 Pro 5G’s 50W wired and 30W wireless fast-charging capabilities. Xiaomi, however, ships the Mi 10 Pro 5G with a separate 65W charger. Both devices also support 10W reverse wireless charging.
As both devices have Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 5G chipset matched with Adreno 650 GPU under the hood, expect a flagship performance when multitasking or playing games. Both also run on their respective custom UIs based on Android 10.
Memory-wise, OPPO, and Xiaomi listed their smartphones in two RAM configurations: 8GB and 12GB. The latter, on the other hand, uses both LPDDR5 for its configurations.
The OPPO Ace2 comes in 128GB and 256GB UFS 3.0 for storage. The Mi 10 Pro 5G, meanwhile, has 256GB and 512GB. If you have a lot of media files to store, then the Mi 10 Pro 5G is the best choice. But if it’s a bit overwhelming, the OPPO Ace2’s 128GB model is enough.
As 5G-ready smartphones that do more, both models feature dual stereo speakers for better and clearer audio, built-in cooling systems, in-display fingerprint scanners, and network acceleration capabilities. The MultiLink of Xiaomi allows the phone to connect on up to 3 networks simultaneously while the LinkBoost 2.0 of OPPO grants only up to 2 WiFi connection at the same time.
OPPO also added Breeno for the Ace2, a gaming voice assistant that allows gameplay screen recording and manages basic controls like adjustment of brightness, volume, and more, to the Ace 2. It also incorporates haptic feedback for a more immersive gaming experience.
As of this writing, both handsets are currently available in China. The Mi Pro 10 5G is more expensive, starting at CNY 4,999 for the 8GB + 256GB. Meanwhile, the price for the OPPO Ace2 8GB + 128GB and 8GB + 256GB variants are CNY 3,999 and CNY 4,399, respectively. When it comes to their 12GB + 256GB offering, the OPPO Ace2 is priced lower at CNY 4,599 than the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 5G at CNY 5,499.
The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 5G, again, is expensive at CNY 5,999 for the 12GB + 512GB model.
If you want ample storage, big battery capacity, and high-resolution cameras with excellent zoom capabilities, then choose Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 5G. But if you’re more of a gamer than a multi-tasker who finds haptic features, in-game voice assistant, and powerful charging a need than a desire, then go for the OPPO Ace2.
