With the Redmi Note 10 5G, Xiaomi has another potential hit up its sleeve that attracts customers with its extensive features and low price. Here, we summarize the review's highlights for you.

Xiaomi's philosophy is to offer great prices, and this is also true for the Redmi Note 10 5G, which starts at an already low MSRP of just 230 Euros (~$274). In return, buyers get a 6.5-inch IPS display with a Full HD+ resolution and a 90 Hz ref, a fast MediaTek Dimensity 700 CPU with 4 GB of RAM, as well as 64 GB of internal UFS 2.2 storage, which can be expanded with a microSD card. An analog radio receiver, an audio jack, NFC, Wi-Fi 5, and an IR blaster are also on board.

However, compromises have to be made when it comes to the main camera. Although the 48 MP main sensor takes quite good photos, the remaining two lenses hardly offer any added value, and Xiaomi also restricts the video capabilities of the entire setup to the Full HD resolution. Furthermore, a notification LED is missing, and those who want to use a microSD card will have to give up the dual-SIM feature.

Battery life is very good in the test, and call quality isn't bad either. MIUI is certainly a matter of taste, but it's known for its discreet advertisements and strict power-saving policy. The Redmi Note 10 5G didn't show any major shortcomings in the test, and it offers a good price-performance ratio for its class.
