Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 pro
Xiaomi launches the Redmi Note 10 series which headlines astonishing features. Take the 108MP camera sensor at 30 or 60 fps goes bigger with the 4K resolution at 30fps, all this at a 120Hz screen.
We know Xiaomi handicaps its smartphones with overbearing software, and the Redmi Note 10 Pro misses out on 5G, but it matters not if you are going to enjoy its HDR10 glory and snapping silly-resolution 108MP photos.
It’s one of the best plastic phones tested. The fingerprint scanner is curved to match the rounded frame, and it feels considered in the match with the stepped camera while the frame’s dual texture has a buffed flat top and high-gloss sides.
The Note 10 weighs around 193g, which is unsurprising given the huge battery fitted inside
The phone comes boasting a pre-fitted screen protector which is on top of a Gorilla Glass 5 display, and this has an IP53 resistance against dust and splash protection.
Along with the high-spec screen, the camera array also sets the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 aside from its rivals. A 48MP camera what you need to enjoy photos.
The 488MP (f/1.9) main camera works hand in hand with three other camera sensors, they include an 8MP (f/2.2) ultrawide lens, a 5MP (f/2.4) macro camera, and a 2MP (f/2.4) depth sensor.
At dusk when it is dark enough the Xiaomi once again will perform superbly, with clear punchy images, plenty of detail, and very little noise.
The front-facing camera is also very good and takes the most flattering for selfies. With the default setting which has some light beautification already enabled.
Enjoy the 44MP selfie camera for better selfie pictures.
The video performance is also solid it guarantees to record your videos at 1080p at an amazing 30fps. What's more, is the optical image stabilization is equipped that helps when the camera is moved or shaken.
The fingerprint scanner found behind your phone allows you to easily unlock your phone without touching the screen. It works sufficiently to secure your phone against third parties.
Software & Performance
The MIUI GPU can be intimidating but is jam-packed with cool stuff that makes the Android 11 better. The MIUI will rid of background apps by forcefully putting them on hold, with this you save more on battery. However messaging apps like WhatsApp will still come through without issue.
Despite even playing games over a long period of time you can still end the day with 35% power or more. The battery is amazing as with no gaming, enjoy one and a half days of power. Without a doubt, the battery performance is one of the strongest points of the standard Note 10. The included 33W charger quickly juices up that 5020mAh cell in around 70 minutes, though it’s no match for those speedy 65W adapters.
The phone will come with Xiaomi's proprietary tech charger and USB cable to make charging fast and efficient to pump out all the power needed to run your phone. With this, I mind avoiding using a third-party USB PD adapter as it may significantly lower the charging speed.
