Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 10 Pro is one of the best Android bargains you could ask for, considering its great screen, fast performance, long battery life and solid camera. It comes with a large 120Hz OLED screen, and its Snapdragon 732G ensures impressive gaming. The phone also has some of the best speakers available in its price segment. Let’s find out more about this smartphone.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro features a glass back and plastic sides. It is a relatively slim device and not too heavy either. It features a side-mounted fingerprint scanner as well. It is merely 8.1mm thick and weighs just 193g. The rear side of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro is a pleasant satin finish that reflects the light. Other colours available are off-white and orange.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro features a large 6.67-inch 1080 x 2400 OLED display with a 120Hz panel. The display delivers surprisingly good brightness and also supports HDR and a wide colour gamut. It offers incredible sharpness, excellent contrast, and deep colour. Its ‘120Hz’ refresh rate means the app drawer scrolling is super smooth, and images refresh faster than usual. It’s an excellent screen for such a reasonably priced phone.
The general performance of this phone is quite good and the games run quite well. It’s powered by a Snapdragon 732G, but the Redmi Note 10 Pro’s day-to-day performance pretty much matches phones three times the price. It has a generous 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB of storage, making using it a smooth experience. Its features make it a great gaming phone in its segment.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro comes with a 108MP f/1.9 primary camera sensor. It’s a fun-to-use macro camera with a solid night mode. Its 5MP f/2.4 ‘tele-macro’ is more or less one of the best phone macro cameras we’ve got our hands on in a while. The zoom and clarity it offers is nothing short of exceptional. The Redmi Note 10 Pro’s night mode is also commendable and can genuinely reveal new data in the darkness. The camera setup has an ultra-wide camera with an 8MP f/2.2 Sony IMX355 sensor, but one cannot use the night mode with the ultra-wide camera. The third camera is a low-end 2MP f/2.4 OmniVision sensor that works as a ‘filler’ camera, more or less.
The front camera is an incredible 16MP Sony IMX471. It’s seen in other phones like the OnePlus 7T that are priced much higher than this one. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro can shoot videos at up to 4K resolution at 30 frames per second but without stabilization. Stabilization is only available at 1080p at 30 frames per second.
The speakers on the Redmi Note 10 Pro’s are definitely worth mentioning. We think they are excellent for a phone of this price segment. They come with two drivers – one is on the bottom, while the other sits above the screen. The one on the top has two outlets, one on the top and one on the front. This maximizes the stereo sound field of the phone and makes sure it doesn’t get blocked out.
This phone packs some great stamina and can charge to 55% in just 30 mins. A massive 5,020mAh battery powers the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro. After a full charge, we were still left with a 35-45% charge by midnight after a moderate day’s use. It also supports fast charging and comes with a 33W power adapter to fire it up.
This phone is definitely worth recommending. One gets a solid 108MP camera with a suitable night mode, a long-lasting battery that can be charged quickly, a 120Hz refresh rate option, and an excellent user experience in a device that’s truly value for money.
