Samsung, OnePlus, and Xiaomi launched amazing flagship killers in the global market in the last period. Thanks to them, you can get a device with a top-tier performance at a very modest price. The flagship killers we are talking about are OnePlus 8T, Samsung Galaxy S20 FE, and Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro. People who know smartphones well appreciate these devices a lot due to their amazing hardware and very high value for money. This is a comparison between the latest flagship killers launched in the global market: note that the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE we are referring to inside this comparison is the 4G version because the 5G variant carries a higher price.

If the design is one of your main priorities, discard the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE: it has a plastic body and it is not built with premium materials. The OnePlus 8T and Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro both come with a glass back and an aluminum frame, so they are more beautiful and attractive. Among these two devices, I prefer the OnePlus 8T because it is thinner, it is lighter and it has a slightly higher screen-to-body ratio. In a few words, it looks sleeker and it is even more compact.
The Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro has the highest refresh rate ever seen on a phone (144 Hz), but it is not the handset with the best display in this comparison. The OnePlus 8T and the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE are actually superior because they sport AMOLED panels instead of the IPS panel found on the Mi 10T Pro. Further, they have a 120 Hz refresh rate and the HDR10+ certification. You should not notice big differences between the image quality of the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE and the OnePlus 8T, but the latter has a slightly wider panel.
The most powerful hardware department belongs to the OnePlus 8T. It is fueled by the Snapdragon 865 mobile platform just like the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro, but it in its most expensive variant it offers a higher amount of RAM: up to 12 GB. Further, the OnePlus 8T is the only one that runs Android 11 out of the box, customized by OxygenOS. On the other hand, you can expect three years of software support and major Android updates with the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE, so the fact that it ships with Android 10 should not represent a concern. But the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE has an inferior hardware department: it ships with a weaker Exynos 990 chipset and it lacks 5G connectivity.
Despite the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro packs an amazing 108 MP main sensor, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is a more interesting camera phone not only for its dual 12 MP sensor including an ultrawide lens and OIS but especially for its 8 MP telephoto sensor supporting 3x optical zoom and for its 32 MP selfie snapper. With normal photos, you can get superior quality with the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro (and you can even record videos in 8K resolution), but there is no telephoto lens. OnePlus 8T is the most disappointing with its 48 MP quad camera lacking a telephoto sensor.
Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro has a longer battery life thanks to its bigger 5000 mAh battery. OnePlus 8T has the fastest charging technology thanks to its 65W power. Samsung Galaxy S20 FE has a smaller battery than Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro and slower fast charging technology, but unlike its two rivals, it supports fast wireless charging and reverse wireless charging.
Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro is priced at €599/$700, just like the OnePlus 8T, in their base variants. Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 4G costs €669/$785. The waterproof design and wireless charging are unique features for a flagship killer, but the inferior hardware and the lack of 5G connectivity do not make the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE a device worth the money asked for everyone. OnePlus 8T lacks these features but comes with better hardware; however, it has inferior cameras. Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro has a bigger battery and great cameras, as well as an amazing hardware department, but it does not come with an AMOLED display. Which one wins the comparison? It depends on the users’ needs: which would you pick? I would personally discard all of these devices and spend a bit more on the 5G variant of the Galaxy S20 FE.
