System and applications
Mi 10T Pro works under the control of Android 10 with the MIUI 12 overlay. This interface significantly changes pure Android and is clearly inspired by Apple smartphones - for example, the top bar is divided into the notification bar (on the left) and the quick shortcuts bar (pulled down) on the right side of the screen). Of course, this can be turned off to download the bar "normally", just locate the "Control Center" tab in Settings. Inspiration with the iPhone can also be seen in the appearance of the buttons - they are large, with rounded corners. By default, it is also set that all icons land on the home screens, without the application menu - this can also be modified through the settings. People who switch from iPhone will find themselves here quickly, for Android smartphone visitors it may be less intuitive.
Of course, the system has a lot of additional functions that cannot be found in pure Android. You can use gesture control, themes are supported, which can also change the appearance of icons, there is the possibility of one-handed operation, Game Turbo mode and a second space, a function useful especially when the phone is used both for business matters and as a private device. Xiaomi has also added some more or less unnecessary applications (e.g. AliExpress, Netflix, WPS Office) and several proprietary tools. It is worth adding that it supports the Widevine L1 certificate, i.e. it allows you to play recordings in Full HD quality from services such as Netflix or Disney Plus.
