Realme Narzo 30 Pro 5G vs Xiaomi Mi 10i 5G

Xiaomi and Realme released amazing value-for-money mid-rangers in 2021. If you need the mid-ranger with the highest value for money, there are very high chances that you should opt for one of these two brands. In the midrange segment, Realme came up with the Narzo 30 Pro 5G delivering amazing specifications under every aspect, despite its affordable price tag. Its direct rival is the Xiaomi Mi 10i which has a lot in common with the Realme Narzo 30 Pro 5G and is sold in the same price range. This specs comparison will try to tell you which is the best between these two 5G best-buys.

Realme Narzo 30 Pro 5G vs Xiaomi Mi 10i


Do you prefer a modern look or premium materials? With the Realme Narzo 30 Pro 5G, you get a more modern design, as well as a more compact body. But the Xiaomi Mi 10i has more premium materials as it comes with a glass back instead of the classic polycarbonate which is often found on affordable phones including Realme Narzo 30 Pro 5G. I like the Realme Narzo 30 Pro 5G because its camera module is less invasive; further, it is a lighter phone. Both the handsets feature a side-mounted fingerprint reader and a pretty thick body due to their big batteries.


Realme Narzo 30 Pro 5G and Xiaomi Mi 10i 5G are equipped with IPS panels: they are not bad panels, but they are far from the AMOLED displays you can find in the midrange segment in terms of image quality. The Xiaomi Mi 10i 5G is slightly more interesting because it has the HDR10 certification providing a richer image quality, especially on streaming platforms. Realme Narzo 30 Pro 5G and Xiaomi Mi 10i 5G have a 120 Hz refresh rate (very good for gamers since they got a smoother viewing experience and more reactivity) and a Full HD+ resolution. The Realme Narzo 30 Pro 5G has a slightly higher typical brightness. Note that Xiaomi Mi 10i 5G has stereo speakers, while Realme Narzo 30 Pro 5G has mono speakers.

Specs & Software

Realme Narzo 30 Pro 5G and Xiaomi Mi 10i 5G are more or less at the same level if we talk about the hardware department. The Snapdragon 750G found on the Xiaomi Mi 10i is slightly more powerful than the Dimensity 800U of the Realme Narzo 30 Pro 5G, but the latter is built with a better 7 nm production process and it should guarantee a lower energy consumption. The memory configurations are the same: 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of native storage which you can furtherly expand through a micro SD slot, but the Xiaomi Mi 10i 5G has faster UFS 2.2 storage instead of UFS 2.1. Unfortunately, both the phones run Android 10 out of the box despite they were released in 2021.



Xiaomi Mi 10i 5G is a superior camera phone because it has a better main camera: we are talking about a great 108 MP main sensor which is still a midrange camera despite its resolution, but it is way better than the 48 MP camera found on the Realme Narzo 30 Pro 5G. It also has an additional 2 MP sensor for depth calculation. These handsets can record videos with a resolution of up to 4K and they are equipped with a 16 MP front camera for selfies.


Realme Narzo 30 Pro 5G has a bigger 5000 mAh battery and, given that its processor is built with a 7 nm production process, it lasts more on a single charge in a lot of scenarios. With the Xiaomi Mi 10i 5G, you get faster charging but a smaller battery.


Realme Narzo 30 Pro 5G is priced at Rs. 16,300 / $220 in India, while Xiaomi Mi 10i 5G starts from Rs. 21,999 / $295. The Xiaomi Mi 10i 5G is a superior phone because it has stereo speakers and better cameras, but with the Realme Narzo 30 Pro 5G, you can get a higher value for money without facing a lot of compromises.
