Redmi Note 10 Pro short review: Xiaomi's new midrange dynamo has a 120Hz screen
This is Xiaomi is brand new Redmi Note 10 Pro, which it has just announced at a global launch along with three other Redmi Note 10 phones.
Hey everyone, I'm Serena and I've switched to this phone the Redmi Note 10 Pro as My daily driver and I'm liking it so far, I mean it's really easy to like even its combination of price, performance and features.
In case you're not familiar with the ready note line it shall needs budget friendly champions that have at times outsold even Samsung and Apple globally With the Redmi note 10 pro Shami is gonna grab a bigger piece of the pie from Samsung galaxy 851, or even Apple's iPhone se.
So let's not waste any more time and dive right into the features for full transparency.
By the way, Shami usually sends me his phones ahead of their global launch so that I can review it.
Cover it somehow.
But don't worry this will not affect my thoughts or opinions on the device.
Now the note 10 Pro has a huge 6.7 inch OLED display with 2400 by 1080 p resolution A house's Qualcomm Snapdragon 723G chipset it also rocks 108 megapixel main shooter and has dual stereo speaker systems.
Now with a peak brightness of 1200 nits this phone is still visible even in some of the brightest Places,
But this is a budget phone after all.
And show me has made some sacrifices.
The biggest thing missing is 5g, which if you're gonna keep your read me note 10 pro for a few years, you'll want your next phone to have there's also no telephoto lens,
But these are emissions.
In my opinion, considering the read me note pro starts at $279.
By the way, if you're a fan of this lineup, there is a 5G version of the Redmi Note 10 up for grabs.
You can check out those details if you need them on my article on cnet.com and it's also linked in the description box below.
Now that you have an overall idea of the device, you're probably wondering about the camera now Xiaomi put an emphasis on the camera in its media paraphrase ngulia further read no 10 line And up.
For the 10 Pro at least, Xiaomi has bumped up the resolution of the main shooter which now has 108 megapixel wide angle lens accompanied by three others, an 8 megapixel ultra-wide with a 118 degree field of view, a 5 megapixel telemacro, and a 2 megapixel depth lens.
On the front There's a 16 megapixel selfie camera smack in the top center of the display.
During my hands on time the camera managed to capture crisp and vibrant photos especially in environments with ample light.
low light images were decent to this was taken with the Redmi note in my dimly lit living room.
Here it is in comparison with the much pricier iPhone 12 Pro max And you can see the photo taken with the Redmi Note, although not as detailed still does a good job in comparison.
And here are some tele macro photos.
This photo of my flowers was taken on Super macro mode.
Now here it is on default settings.
And now here's another photo of my sweats on ultra wide mode.
And here it is, again on Super macro mode.
So many details.
Now keep in mind there is no telephoto camera on this phone.
That means there is no optical zoom.
But there is 10 times digital zoom.
it zooms in pretty far but you can't count on it for capturing detail and faraway objects like these buildings, which resemble watercolor paint.
Now here's a two and a half times zoom example and this is much better.
One of the headline features of the Redmi Note 10 Pro is the Zippy refresh rate of 120 hertz.
That's actually the same speeds seen across Samsung's latest Galaxy S 21 lineup, including the 12 $100 a Galaxy S 21 Ultra As well as Xiaomi, his own flagship smartphone the Mi 11.
Now the Redmi Note 10 Pro runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 732 g processor, which is a cut above the 730 g chipset found on Google's pixel.
Although it isn't the newest or most cutting edge processor from Qualcomm stable you'll have to shell out for the Samsung Galaxy S 21 Ultra or the Mi 11.
For that it was more than sufficient for mining, Allowing me to sail through everyday tasks without a hitch.
Battery life was solid to lasting me about a day and a half with what I describe as mild news, that means I made a few short phone calls, watch Ticktok videos, wrote emails, read news, watch more Ticktok videos and took photographs.
But when you eventually do run out of juice refilling the Redmi Note 5020 milliamp hour battery doesn't take long, thanks in part to that 33 watt wired charger.
Based on my early tests, I hit a 30% charge in 15 minutes, about 30 minutes or so for a half charge and slightly over an hour for the battery to be fully revitalized.
And now before we wrap up, let's go over the ports and buttons on this phone because there are quite a few.
There's a fingerprint reader located on the right side of the phone and on top, you'll actually still see a humble headphone jack, just like the international version of the MI 11, the Redmi Note 10 Pro comes with a bunch of accessories including a 33 watt wire charger which I spoke about earlier, a USB C adapter and one plastic case.
So that about wraps my review video of the Redmi Note [UNKNOWN] 10 Pro but I'd love to hear from you.
