This is going to be, i think, my last video on this channel i’m, going back to my hindi channel, chill it’s, okay, starting with the design, the meat ni, comes with a matte frosted glass finish, which actually looks quite stunning, just like everyone else. We have also received the pacific sunrise, color variant, which gives this phone a dual gradient. Look. You get two more color options: atlantic, blue and midnight black. The device has a flat chassis with gently curved corners, which we have seen previously in many xiaomi phones, but people with small hands will find it a little difficult to reach the corners of the display. The good part is that the device weighs 198 grams and is 9 millimeters thick, which is perfectly balanced numbers.
In our opinion, we had a good run with the ergonomics of the device, as it offered comfortable grip to hold on for longer durations talking about physical overview. At the bottom, you get the usb 2.0 type c port primary microphone, speaker grille and the good old headphone jack. At the top. You have the ir blaster, along with a secondary noise cancellation mic on the right side. You have the power button, which also acts as the side mounted fingerprint sensor, and you have the volume rockers. All of them offer a tactile feedback and the fingerprint sensor quickly unlocks the device on the left side. You have the hybrid sim slot the earpiece acts as a secondary speaker enabling a dual stereo output and there is a notification led embedded inside it. Lastly, on the rear side, you have a circular quad camera setup at the top, with the me logo and the 5g branding at the bottom. The rear of the phone is protected with gorilla glass 5. and before we forget, the meat ni comes with ip53 rating making. It splash proof just like the fingerprint sensor, the face unlocking on this device works very well without any hiccups. Overall, we found the meat and eye design quite appealing. It takes all the essential design and build elements which one should expect from their smartphones. These days, the mi10i comes with a 6.67 inch, full hd plus ips lcd display, with a dot notch that houses the selfie camera.
This is a 120 hertz refresh rate panel with adaptive sync technology that enables automatic adjustment of refresh rates as per the content on the screen. Switching to high refresh rate mode does help in improving the user experience. The ui animations become very smooth and in app scrolling becomes way more seamless. This is a pretty good ips panel, which has been tuned very well for a good viewing experience. The colors look rich and vibrant. While watching content on youtube and ott platforms, you can watch hdr content, but only on youtube for otd platforms. You can enjoy content up to 1080p resolution with the wi fi l1 support. The maximum brightness of this display is 450 nits, which makes it adequate for using outdoors. You also get the option of using sunlight mode and control the night mode brightness for indoor usage. The display also comes with tuv rhineland blue light certification and is protected by gorilla glass. 5.. Talking about audio the dual stereo speaker setup on the meat ni is pretty loud and clear for both indoor and outdoor conditions. We had a good time while watching our favorite content on this device, as we could clearly listen to the dialogues and enjoy a good audio experience. These speakers also prove to be effective while listening to your favorite music here’s, a quick sample, audio support which can be enabled from the audio setting menu. If you have a good pair of earphones, just plug them in the headphone jack, and you will not be disappointed with the audio output, you can also choose an audio preset to customize your audio experience and also use a built in equalizer for wireless audio.
There is support for sbc, aac and aptx hd codex in terms of call quality. We did not face any call drops. We use this device with airtel 4g sim and the network reception was rock solid. All the time the earpiece can get really loud for taking calls at crowded areas. The device has the x52 5g modem, which supports millimeter wave and sub 6 gigahertz 5g spectrum. You also get support for dual 4g dual volt dual wifi, calling native video calls and call recording do note that you will receive the ivr prompt after switching on the call recording. You also get support for 5 gigahertz wifi and bluetooth 5.1. The meat – and i is a 5g smartphone running on qualcomm’s latest mid range chipset, the snapdragon 750 g. You get three different ram and storage variants: 6, 64, 6, 128 and 8 128. All the variants have lpddr 4x ram and ufs 2.2 storage. This is the second device after redmi 9 power to feature ufs 2.2 storage standard. The snapdragon 750 g is a powerful chipset for the mid range smartphones. If you look at the benchmarks, you will notice that there is minimal difference between this and the snapdragon 765g on antutu. We got a score of 3 lakh 28503 on the meet ni. We do not have the geekbench score because the app kept crashing on the smartphone, the meat ni works flawlessly during day to day usage. We did not notice any lags and the ram management was pretty good.
You can play all kinds of graphically heavy games like cod and shadowgun legends at high settings on this phone without noticing any lags or stutters. The vibration motor provides good haptic feedback, both in daily usage and while playing games in terms of software. You get miui 12.0.3, based on android 10 out of the box. The overall user interface has been optimized very well for the 120 hertz refresh rate display the app animations look very smooth and the multitasking has become way more seamless, it’s good to see that xiaomi has replaced the default apps with those of google like dialer messenger and Contacts, but you still have a few unnecessary applications. You get all the proprietary, android 10 features like dark mode, navigation gestures and dual apps xiaomi has announced the rollout for android 11 beta and we hope to receive the update for meet ni and other devices as well. Overall, we don’t have any complaints with the performance of this device. Now let’s talk about the major highlight of the meet ni. The device features a 108 megapixel quad rear camera setup. The main 100 mp lens comes with the latest samsung hm2 sensor. That features nine in one pixel binning and has f 1.7 aperture. There is an 8 megapixel ultra wide angle, lens with 120 degree field of view, a 2 megapixel macro lens, with 4 centimeter focal length and a 2 megapixel depth sensor for shooting portraits. It would have been better to include a 5 megapixel macro lens anyways.
The selfie camera is a 16 megapixel unit. As far as videos are concerned, you can shoot up to 4k at 30fps from the rear camera and up to 1080p at 30fps from the selfie camera. You get the option to shoot slow mo videos up to 960 frames per second at hd resolution. You can shoot time lapses from both the main and ultra wide angle lens, but the main lens can capture 4k time lapses, unlike the ultra wide angle lens that shoots at 1080p. Lastly, you get the options like vlog mode, dual video and long exposure. Now let us talk about the image quality and take a look at the video samples. If you live in delhi ncr, you would have also noticed continuous showers over the weekend, anyways starting with the daylight shots in this first image. The colors have turned out to be almost true to source. What i mean by almost is that the color of the building grass and the trees has been captured accurately. But if you look at the swings, the blue color has been captured with a lighter shade in real life. This platform is dark blue in color, and the dome structure is light blue in color, but it has been captured at a darker shade. Also, the image looks a tad bit over sharpened, which is nothing major. Switching to the 108 mp mode massively improves the sharpness and details. You can see that the happy new year board is now a lot more readable.
The trees on the left now look much better, but if you look at the top left corner and compare it with a 12 megapixel image, you will notice that the chimney and the building look a lot sharper in the 12 megapixel photo in terms of color reproduction. We notice the presence of a greenish tint on the building and towards the sky. Otherwise the colors of every other part in the image looks true to source. The ultra wide angle lens captures a lot of area due to the 120 degree field of view, but the images turn out to be a little contrasty and the details are also not very impressive for your information. The distortion correction feature is enabled by default, so you don’t have to do that before you start. Shooting switching the hdr mode leads to a slight improvement in terms of exposure in the dark areas, but in this image you can see that the color of the building and the sky looks a little saturated compared to the non hdr sample. But yes, the highlights have been maintained nicely coming to the close ups. In the first shot, you can see that the sharpness and the details are quite impressive. The exposure is well balanced and the colors look true to source in the second image. The subject has been focused very well and the natural bokeh effect looks nice. The sharpness and the details of the flower look good. The texture of the petals has been captured nicely, but the color of the flower has not been captured accurately by the camera it’s.
Actually, a red colored flower in real life. Talking about rare, portraits, the images come out with accurate color reproduction once you zoom in you will notice that the bottom portion of the subject has not been separated from the background. Otherwise, the cut out looks nice in the remaining part of the subject. The 2 megapixel macro lens can shoot decent quality images with accurate colors. You also get the option to shoot macro videos at 720p resolution coming to the indoor shots here. Also, you will notice accurate color reproduction, the color of every book cover, looks true to source and the sharpness is also quite impressive. The exposure looks well balanced too. The low light images turn out to be decent, but you notice a good output. Only after switching the night mode, it helps in improving the exposure, especially at the bottom and left side of the image, but it seems that the light flaring has not been effectively controlled by the camera in the second shot. You can see that the tree behind the gate looks better due to the improvement in exposure levels. The highlight controls look nice, especially in the center portion of the gate, which displays the name of the society, but still there is visible light flaring in this panel. The shape of the light looks much better, but the flaring around the corners ceases to exist. We are very impressed with the daylight selfies. The skin tones look accurate and there is lot of facial details being captured by the 16 megapixel lens, the color of my clothes and that of the plants in the background, looks true to source switching to the portrait mode.
You will notice that my beard and my hair has been trimmed very slightly due to the cut out, which is still fine. But if you focus on my shoulders, you will notice a lot of inconsistencies in terms of background separation. Otherwise, there is almost no color disparity when compared to the regular selfie for low light selfies. You will get the most decent results only after turning on the screen flash feature, the night mode does improve the exposure, but the sharpness level takes a toll so guys. I am shooting at 1080p 30fps on the new me 10i and you can also shoot at 1080p 60fps. You can also shoot at 4k 30fps. So let me know in the comments. What do you think about the stabilization? The audio quality, video quality let’s? Do a quick pan so that you get some idea about the dynamic range yeah guys. This is a quick sample of the ultra wide angle, video from the meat ni. You can shoot at 1080p 30fps. The stabilization looks decent. I believe oh it’s, actually good! Is it? Let me know in the comments it’s a 120 degree field of view, so you get to capture a lot of area with the help of this lens. Overall, this is a good camera setup that gives you images with great color reproduction, the 108 mp camera. Surely improves details and sharpness and images, but there are some issues in terms of color accuracy. Nonetheless, it’s good to experience this camera setup in the mid range segment powering this entire setup is a 4820mah battery.
You get a 33 watt fast charger in the box. That can charge this phone from zero to 100. In 56 minutes. To be precise, you also get support for usb power delivery. We tried charging this phone with an 18 watt charger and it took two hours to get fully charged. We can safely say that even after keeping the 120 hertz refresh rate turned on, you can easily get a day’s worth of battery life. We got 4.5 to 5 hours of screen on time. After using this device extensively, we took a lot of video calls used, social media did multitasking camera usage and an hour of gaming. We are satisfied with the battery life on the meat ni and you can extend the battery backup by switching to 60hz refresh rate so that’s it guys. This was our full review of the xiaomi meet and i do let us know in the comments. What are your thoughts about the smartphone? We think that this is a good smartphone that comes at a very competitive starting price, but we will suggest that you should always go for the variant that comes with more storage, because this phone does not come with a triple sim card slot. You get a hybrid slot in all the variants uh. We would suggest that you should choose the 8gb ram and 128gb storage variant. Let us know in the comments: what are your thoughts about this phone and we will be back soon with another video till then my name is porosh.
