Xiaomi Mi Note 10 review

Updated: Mar 9, 2021

Xiaomi may not be the foremost selling brand within the UK yet, but its well-priced smartphones have quietly been gaining more market share over the last year more or less. Offering handsets with flagship features at very reasonable prices.

That trend looks to continue with the launch of the Mi Note 10, whether or not Xiaomi has decided to dip its toes a little bit further into high-priced waters. It’s not Xiaomi’s cheapest smartphone by an extended stretch, but the Mi Note 10 has something that currently no other phone has in its possession: a high quality 108-megapixel camera.

What you need to understand about MI Note 10?

First Let's discuss a brand-new camera with its triple-figure spec while we are looking to find most of the upcoming smartphones with high-megapixel-count cameras launching over the following year, the Mi Note 10 has beaten the rest to the punch.

The new camera isn’t the be-all and end-all. If you’re already aware of the way in which Xiaomi has begun to garner significant interest within the UK, then the rest of the Mi Note 10 won’t come as any surprise: it’s largely proving the same concept of the rest of the Xiaomi range by providing high-end specifications with way less price than big brand rivals.

The Xiaomi MI Note 10 comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor with a healthy 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. There’s a 6.47in AMOLED screen (complete with teardrop notch) and it also benefits from an extra four cameras on the rear, including a 2x telephoto zoom sensor, a 5x telephoto, a wide-angle lens and a macro camera.

Price and competition

It has an edged screen of 6.47 inch with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels, 19.5:9 ratio (~398 ppi density), It’s clear that this can be one amongst Xiaomi’s finest screens yet. it would not match the brightness of Apple’s, and its FHD+, but no other phone at this price offers the same experience.

As this can be an AMOLED panel, contrast is equally perfect, and it’s still ready to reach a maximum brightness of 400cd/m2 – which is nice enough to stop you from squinting an excessive amount of brightly-lit environments.

Performance and battery life

The Mi Note 10 is powered by the new Snapdragon 730G which is a 2.2GHz processor that’s built using an 8nm fabrication process, so it’s noticeably within the upper echelons of the mid-range. It’ll come packing 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, although this can’t be expanded via microSD.Also, It comes with a really good battery of Li-Po 5260 mAh, non-removable that supports Fast charging 30W, 58% in 30 min, 100% in 65 min.
