Redmi’s main highlight for most of its phones has been the main camera bump on the back, minimalist design, and long-lasting batteries that were better than other brands, probably a year or two ago, but most of them have now caught up.
This time we’re looking at the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G, a decidedly mid-ranged phone (going by its choice of cameras and chipset) but with 5G connectivity and 90Hz refresh rate. Is it any good? Should you buy it? Let’s find out for ourselves.
Design-wise, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G feels good to the touch, and after playing with it for a few days, a lot of interesting stuff came to light.
On the surface, the device comes with an impressive spec sheet. A few notable entries include a 90Hz display, 48MP triple AI cameras, MediaTek Dimensity 700 7nm chipset, and more.
Design & Display: Neat With A Little Touch Of Premium
One thing you should note is the weight because Redmi makes a big deal out of it. It’s a little heavier than Oppo’s Reno 5 Pro 5G device, weighing in at 190g because of the big battery.
On the front, there’s a 6.5-inch IPS LCD display that offers an encouraging 83.7% screen-to-body ratio.
There’s been a tremendous focus on taking a big 6.5-inch phone and not making it feel big, but the weight of the battery highlights how handy the device feels.
The phone packs a high refresh rate on the display, which can be enabled in settings.
There’s a dark mode, actually, there’s quite a variety of dark modes in here, depending on how dark you like it to be. The dark mode applies to third-party apps on the phone as well.
