Redmi Note 10 5g Review
Redmi Note 10 5g
The Redmi Note 10 series is one of the exciting mid-rangers from Xiaomi. The smartphones out there cater to a wide variety of users with very affordable prices. The Redmi Note 10 5G that we’re reviewing today appears to be a flagship proposition. It gives you access to 5G networks at an affordable price, but there’s a lot more to it.
The affordable Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 gets a 5G 90Hz 1080p LCD screen. Three rear cameras, multiple connectivity options, a big battery, and a decent chipset that can handle gaming on the go. . What to catch? That way, we know if there is any.
The Redmi Note 10 is powered by MediaTek’s Dimension 700 chipset. Which powers 5G and usually comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of UFS 2.2 storage. We like Xiaomi which retains the microSD slot, even though it’s a hybrid space. In fact, the Note 10 5G packs a lot of fan-favorite features like a 3.5mm jack, FM radio, IR blaster, NFC. However, there are no stereo speakers.
The Redmi Note 10 5G isn’t a device for everyone like the RealMe 8 5G because it doesn’t have the fastest or best camera in this price bracket. But it also brings the Redmi Note series into this new 5G era. And anyone who wants to experience a faster 5G network – can make do with 30 230 or less.
Redmi Note Gg Space
We know this has been said more than once, but these days we believe that every phone. No matter how clumsy, should offer some basic penetration protection – IP53, water-sealed dock, dehumidifying coating – Something that might make it even more durable. In life. Unfortunately, the Redmi Note 10 5G is not one of them. And we feel that this detail is not in the paper.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G I Unboxing
The Redmi Note 10 5G is a packaged box that looks like vanilla. It has a 22.5W charger, USB-C-to-A cable, and a transparent silicone case.
This case’s USB-C port has a cover, which is a nice touch as it keeps pocket dust out. But it’s a little better to open it whenever you need to charge your phone.
Lastly, the Redmi Note 10 5G uses this thin screen protector made at the factory. But it has a large magnetic smudge, which we removed immediately after unboxing.
Design, Create, Manipulate
The Redmi Note 10 5G is your regular smartphone – it has a mirrored front. While the frame and rear panels are made of plastic. There’s no ingress protection, and although the bundled case seals the USB-C port, it still exposes the 3.5mm audio pad.
Usually, such cheap phones try to impress you with their attractive paintwork and this Redmi is no different. It has a cool matte finish on a reflective rear panel. Which leads to a slightly mysterious flashing light from the camera system and outcrop.
We have the Night-Time Blue model, but the effect is the same across all versions. Chrome Silver, Graphite Gray, and Aurora Green. Of course, if the light is reflective.
So, the Redmi Note 10 5G’s 6.5″ IPS LCD screen with expanded 1080p resolution has a small aperture in the middle of the panel – here’s an 8MP selfie camera.
There are thin bezels on top of the earpiece grille. The bottom bezel is huge, but in line with what is on offer in this category.
The entire front has Gorilla Glass 3 flat piece armor—hard to break. But slightly more resistant to scratches than newer modifications.
The back panel is made of plastic and curves slightly towards the frame. It has a matte finish, which improves handling, but if you expect stain resistance – we shouldn’t let you down. While fingerprints are not that hard to clean, they are plentiful and clearly visible.
When the back is clean, you should be able to set up the camera and feel the lighting effects when you go outside. The RealMe 8 5G actually has a similar backlight. chance?
However, setting up the camera is the only aspect of interest in the back. It’s generally not big for the original trio of snappers – there’s a 48MP main shooter, 2MP macro game, and a 2MP depth sensor. Flash It may look like dual-LED or dual-tone. But it has a single LED under it, the other hole is a dummy.
You may have noticed that there’s a third hole here, as it’s another ambient light sensor. The top screen bezel is hidden, which is another. Together, these ensure 360-degree ambient light detection and can adjust the brightness up to 4096 different levels.
The camera lenses are a bit removable, but the Redmi Note 10 5G doesn’t budge much at uncomfortable levels.
Now let’s talk about the law. It is flat around the top and bottom and curved elsewhere. Above is the 3.5mm audio jack, microphone, and IR blaster, below is the USB-C port, speaker, and speaker.
The hybrid-SIM slot is on the left and the volume and power keys are on the right. The power/lock button doubles as an always-on fingerprint reader. It’s reliable and very fast, but because of its position – you can hold it in your hand more often. Even if you don’t want to open the phone. And this will cause the phone to hear the PIN more often than usual. If this is a problem for you, you can go into the fingerprint settings and change. The reader trigger from touch to press.
The Redmi Note 10 5G measures 161.8 x 75.3 x 8.9 mm and weighs 190 grams. It’s very similar to the RealMe 8 5G, but somewhat heavier than the 5g.
We have positive records of our time with the Redmi Note 10 5G. It is easy to handle and operate with solid construction and enough grip for use without a case. Although very bright, the back is easy on the eyes. So, it can fit in any setting – be it casual or formal.
We only need to improve on one thing if we can – the creation has to be splash-resistant. Siomi knows it can be cool, but they don’t advertise it, so people don’t deliberately float around with their phones. However, the official IP rating is more questionable than the budget price.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G 6.5″ IPS LCD screen has a small aperture at the top.
The Redmi Note 10 5G display supports a 90Hz dynamic update rate. However, HDR10 is not supported.
You can choose between 60Hz (Standard) and 90Hz (High) update rate options. The 90Hz option should be dynamic and provide automatic switching between 30Hz, 50Hz, 60Hz and 90Hz update rates depending on the content. According to the official website, support for 30Hz will be added later.
Dynamic High (90 Hz) Option – The UI is designed at 90 fps, as well as for all compatible applications. It will automatically revert to 50Hz when a still image is displayed. Or back to 60Hz when watching local or streaming video. As far as the budget chipset is concerned, you won’t enjoy many games with frames north of 60fps. In a future update, the update rate may be reduced to 30Hz for 30fps video.
Oddly, Android’s update rate indicator says that the update will be kept at 90Hz even if the image is stable. However, this could be a bug, a miscommunication between Android and MIUI. So, we cannot guarantee that it will not work as promised by relying only on this dev indicator. But we think that Siomi is more likely to deliver on its promise. Which is a misnomer from the RR overlay.
The Xiaomi screen is guaranteed at 1500:1 variation. With the usual 400 nits and a maximum brightness of 500 nits with a sunlight boost. We measured the brightness and the Redmi Note 10 5G lived up to Xiaomi’s promises. It reaches about 1800:1 contrast with deep blacks that are impressive for an LCD.
The manual’s maximum brightness is below average for an LCD panel, though—only 377 nits. It can reach up to 500nits of bright sunlight, so you can even see what’s happening outside the screen.
The smallest glow we achieved with white was only 1 night – awesome!
Xiaomi offers three different contrast settings for the Redmi Note 10 5G display, all of which match the SRGP color space. With Automatic Contrast set, there is a noticeable blue tint, and colors are faux and vibrant. The same goes for satiated desire.
SRGP color spacing has the best accuracy of a standard contrast system. We captured an average delta of 2.3 for color accuracy.
Lastly, the phone comes with White wine L1 DRM out of the box. You can enjoy streaming content at maximum Full HD resolution.
The Redmi Note 10 5G is powered by a large 5,000 mAh battery that supports fairly fast charging at 18W.
The Redmi Note 10 5G released the best result in our battery test at 121 hours of endurance rating. It did an amazing job on all the tests- video playback, calls, web browsing and showed good waiting performance.
Xiaomi ships the Redmi Note 10 5G with a 22.5W charger, although the phone can take a maximum of 18W. If you have other compatible devices. This adapter can charge quickly and should bring you one or a pair of chargers.
So, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G has a powerful 5,000mAh battery. But thanks to this 18W, it shouldn’t take long to recharge. In fact, the supplied charger will charge the battery from 0% to 33% in 30 minutes. Sure, it’s not interesting, but it makes sense given the sheer potential
There are three cameras on the back of the Redmi Note 10 5G, but the setup is very basic and imaginative. It has a 48MP main imager along with a 2MP macro snapper and a 2MP depth sensor. There is also a single LED flash.
Redmi Note 10 has a 5G high-res main camera. It uses a 48MP Omnivision OV48B1/2″ sensor with 0.8m pixels, quad-bay filter and PTAF. The lens is 26mm f/1.8. Night mode is available on this camera.
The macro camera uses a 2MP Hyunix Hi-259 sensor with a large 1.75µm pixels. The lens is f/2.4, while focus is adjusted at a distance of 4cm.
Lastly, there is the 2MP GalaxyCore GC02M1B monochrome depth sensor.
The selfie camera has an 8MP OmniVision OV8856 1/4″ sensor with pixels at 1.12 pm. Which sits behind the f/2.0 lens and adjusts focus.
The default camera application is to switch between the standard MIUI touch-switch by swiping left and right, and all available modes but macro are in this Rolotex. There are no zoom shortcuts here.
On the opposite side of the viewfinder, you have a flash mode switch, HDR switch, AI replacement, and a magic wand with cosmetic effects and filters. You can find several options on the back of the hamburger menu, including shortcuts to macro mode and settings. What you can’t find is the option to set the output resolution.
The main camera has Pro Mode. Manual 48MP photos are also optional. You can use shutter speeds of up to 30s and ISOs up to 6400.
So, the standard 12MP photos we took with the Redmi Note 10 5G’s main camera are absolutely great for this class. They’re sharp, there’s lots of resolved detail, colors are real to life and dynamic range is commendable – Auto HDR doesn’t trigger HDR mode even once. The noise level is also interesting.
The presentation of the leaves is not perfect, but we have noticed that it is even worse on more expensive phones, in fact. The Redmi Note 10 5G is better than we expected, and therefore Xiaomi is proud of the same image processing.
Xiaomi’s camera application offers an AI option in the viewfinder. It recognizes common scenes – buildings, sky, greenery, nightlife, pets, etc. and adjusts some parameters for the “best” look. So, if the fancy colors, lots of variety and highlights thrown in carry the best of your book, you should give it a try. Otherwise, we recommend you leave the matter.
Redmi Note 10 5G supports video capture up to 1080 @ 30fps using the main camera. 60fps shooting is also not available without 4K mode.
Video is recorded at 20Mbps bitrate, audio at stereo 256bps bitrate. Supports optional electronic stabilization and does an excellent job of reducing FoV loss.
Shots taken with the main camera have great colors and contrast and the dynamic range is very good. The level of detail is good for a 1080p display in this price range.
