A better camera phone or an all-around phone? Which one should you pick? In this spec comparison we’ll be talking about two recently released phones that fit said descriptions in OPPO Reno 3 Pro and the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Pro.
First up on the list is the OPPO Reno 3 Pro. Probably the main feature of the Reno 3 Pro is its 5G connectivity. Not all phones currently have this feature and it guarantees greater speeds and stable connection than 3G and 4G.
Second phone in this comparison is the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Pro. Its best feature is its 5 camera set up at the back. Compared to the base unit of the Xiaomi Mi Note 10, the Pro version comes with an 8P Lens for its 108-megapixel camera. The 8P Lens guarantees even better image capturing compared to the vanilla Mi Note 10.
Which of these two smartphones should you get? Are you better off going for the phone with a great camera or are you better off going for the all-around phone? These are the questions we’re going to answer in this OPPO Reno 3 Pro versus Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Pro comparison.

In this NoypiGeeks specs comparison, the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Pro takes the cake. If you’re looking for a phone that has a great camera thanks to its industry first 108-megapixel main one, along with a bigger battery and memory — there’s no doubt that this should be the first choice phone for you.
Though, if you’re looking for an all around phone with a better processor, 5G LTE connectivity and a slightly lighter phone then the OPPO Reno 3 Pro should be your choice.
