Both phones have impressive specifications while being relatively affordable compared to flagship phones that use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Instead, these two phones use MediaTek, with the Xiaomi 13T using the Dimensity 8200-Ultra and the 13T Pro using the Dimensity 9200+.
I have the Xiaomi 13T in for review, and this will be live in the next week or two. In the meantime I have done some basic benchmarks to see how the Dimensity 8200-Ultra competes against other chipsets.

It comes as no surprise that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 outclasses the Dimensity 8200-Ultra by a considerable margin. Looking online, the Xiaomi 13T Pro with the MediaTek Dimensity 9200+ achieves a score of 1,322,572 which almost matches the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
As for the Dimensity 8200-Ultra it achieves an excellent score, though it is only fractionally ahead of the Realme GT Neo 3 with the Dimensity 8100.

For some odd reason, I can’t get Geekbench 6 to run on the Realme GT Neo 3.
In Geekbench 5, the results are good, but with it being limited to the Cortex-A78, it lags behind the relatively old Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. However, it is arguably better than the Google Tensor chipset, with a much higher score for multicore.
It then has a small advantage over the Dimensity 8100 with a score that’s 4% higher for the single performance,

The 3DMark Wildlife reveals impressive results. Of course, it can’t compete with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, but it compares well to all other chipsets. Even when you look at the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, due to the superior thermal efficiency, the score is more stable, and the low score is only 3% less than the Snapdragon. Again, due to the lack of thermal throttling, the Dimensity 8200-Ultra is a superior chipset to the Google Tensor on the Pixel 6 Pro for prologued gaming sessions.
In comparison to the Dimensity 8100, the high score is 19% better, and the low score is 9% better.
The Dimensity 8200-Ultra is an excellent upper mid-range chipset that will offer a flagship-like user experience for most scenarios.
The Xiaomi 13T with 8+256G is priced at £549, which I think is a bargain considering the overall specification. There are not many phones at this price point with two excellent rear cameras. I’d say the package as a whole makes this a more appealing phone than the Pixel 7/8.
While I haven’t personally tested the Xiaomi 13T Pro it looks like the MediaTek Dimensity 9200+ will offer a similar level of performance as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. The base configuration of this phone comes with 12GB RAM and matches the 256GB storage, you then have Wi-Fi 7 support (vs Wi-Fi 6) and the 120W hyper charger.
The Xiaomi 13T Pro only costs an additional £100, and if you can afford that extra money, then I’d say there is enough of a difference with the Pro model to justify buying it over the standard 13T.
