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.
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.
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.
Right off the bat, the fingerprint sensor is side-mounted that also doubles as a power button.
Overall, it does well with the hardware it sports, the 48MP AI cameras perform as well as they can but ultimately fall short of similarly priced phones like its distant sibling Poco M3 Pro 5G.
