Xiaomi Redmi 10 smartphone review: Good budget phone with NFC and 90 Hz

A lot of smartphone for little money. The Xiaomi Redmi 10 starts at less than 200 Euros (~$231), but that doesn't keep it from packing a punch in terms of features: A 90 Hz display is included with the 6.5-incher as well as NFC, a 50 MP camera, a 5,000 mAh battery, and stereo speakers. The MediaTek SoC Helio G88 even ensures good everyday and gaming performance.

Xiaomi is being very competitive with the Redmi 10, because the 6.5-inch smartphone can be purchased for less than 200 Euros (~$231). The Redmi 9's successor has a solid configuration with the MediaTek Helio G88, 4 GB of RAM, up to 128 GB of storage, and a 5,000 mAh battery that supports 18-watt fast charging. We reviewed the 64 GB version, which is offered by Xiaomi in its online store for around 180 Euros (~$208).

The Redmi 10 doesn't support 5G, but it offers two features that want to set the smartphone apart from the masses: A 50 MP main camera and a refresh rate of 90 Hz. However, these aren't unique selling points in the low-budget segment, which is why Xiaomi has to compete with strong rivals right from the start. Read on to find out how it performs in the test.

Case - Gorilla Glass 3 for the Redmi 10

The case of the Redmi 10 is made of plastic, but it's very well built and has a higher-quality look and feel than its price would suggest. Stability is also good, since the smartphone withstood twisting attempts without a sound in the test. Only the back cover can be slightly pressed in at the center. However, none of this reaches the display, because no image artifacts are caused.

The front of the Redmi 10 is protected by a layer of Gorilla Glass 3, and it houses an 8 MP selfie camera in a punch hole. The back cover is not very susceptible to fingerprints thanks to its matte surface finish. At the same time, it offers fingers a slight resistance, so that the smartphone can be held quite securely in the hand even without a protective case.

At 181 grams, the Xiaomi weighs slightly less than many competitors that feature the same form factor. The Redmi 9 predecessor is noticeably heavier at 198 grams. Because the quad-camera setup with its 50 MP main camera protrudes a few millimeters from the back cover, it's recommended to put the smartphone in the included transparent case, because it will otherwise wobble quite a bit when placed on a table.

The Xiaomi Redmi 10 is available in three color variants: Carbon Gray, Pebble White, and Sea Blue. It does not have an IP certification.

Software - Android 11 and MIUI 12.5

The Xiaomi Redmi 10 runs Android 11 and Xiaomi's MIUI 12.5 user interface. During our review period, the smartphone received an update that brought its Android security patches to the level of October 1, which is very up to date.

Out of the 64 GB of our review sample, only about 42 GB of storage space was still available after resetting the device, but this can be quite sufficient depending on the type of use. Those who need more space can delete the few preinstalled third-party apps like AliExpress and TikTok. App data can't be stored on the microSD card.

Communication and GNSS - Fast Wi-Fi, accurate GPS

The Xiaomi Redmi 10 supports Bluetooth 5.1 as well as NFC, making it suitable for mobile payments. It provides solid mobile coverage with 12 LTE frequencies, but it's not a smartphone for globetrotters. However, the majority of frequencies relevant for the EU region are supported.

In terms of WLAN, the smartphone communicates via Wi-Fi 5. In combination with our Linksys Nighthawk AX12 reference router, it also achieves the corresponding transfer rates and manages up to 333 Mb/s. Good: Data transfers are very stable both when sending and receiving data.

GPS (L1), GLONASS (L1), Galileo (E1) and BeiDou (B1) are the satellite navigation systems that the Redmi 10 uses to determine its current position. This works very quickly in the test, both indoors and outdoors, and an accuracy of up to one meter is achieved.

Accuracy remains high even in motion, making the Redmi 10 a very good navigation device when you're on the move. The Xiaomi smartphone tracked the route almost as accurately as the Garmin Edge 500 professional navigation device on a nearly 10-kilometer long test route.

Telephone and call quality - VoLTE and VoWiFi

The Redmi 10 performs solidly in terms of call quality. Voices sound natural, and they remain intelligible in both directions even in hands-free mode. Phone calls can also be made via VoLTE and VoWiFi, provided that the network provider supports it.

Cameras - Quad-camera setup with 50 MP

Photo taken with the main camera
Photo taken with the main camera

The Xiaomi Redmi 10 is equipped with a quad-camera setup that takes up a lot of space on the back cover, making it look quite important. Unfortunately, the reality is somewhat different. The centerpiece of the quad-camera setup is the 50 MP main camera (f/1.8), which combines four neighboring pixels into one via pixel-binning and therefore takes 12.5 MP photos. However, you can also shoot with the full 50 MP in the "50M" mode.

As long as there's enough light, the main camera takes reasonably sharp and detailed pictures. However, they often lack a good amount of dynamics, which often makes the photographed colors look dull. The camera doesn't do a particularly good job with zoom shots, either. You can still get some details out of the subjects in low ambient light using Night Mode, but the overall low-light performance is weak. Due to the lack of image stabilization, videos are pretty shaky and, like with the selfie camera, they are limited to 1080p at 30 frames per second.

The uppermost and largest lens in the camera ensemble is an 8 MP wide-angle camera (f/2.2). It covers a 120° field of view and is activated as soon as you set the zoom factor to 0.5x. If a video is being recorded, however, it's no longer possible to switch between the two lenses. The wide-angle camera uses a slightly different white balance than the main camera and leaves us with a slightly better impression than the main camera. It takes solid pictures and doesn't distort at the edges of the picture as much as some other smartphone lenses.

The third and fourth cameras, the macro camera and the depth sensor, are rather superfluous. The latter because it only serves to create blur effects. And the macro camera, which can be activated in the photo options, can simply be left aside, since the digital zoom produces results that are at least as good.

Under controlled lighting conditions, the main camera is certainly able to reproduce colors accurately, so that better quality photos should be possible through software optimizations. However, low ambient light (lower color chart at 1 lux) overstrains both the camera and the software. The camera can only capture dark gray tones more or less accurately. Furthermore, the test chart, which looked sharp in optimal lighting conditions, is only dimly visible here.

Accessories and warranty - Protective case included

Xiaomi includes a 22.5-watt power adapter with the Redmi 10, even though the smartphone can only be charged at a maximum of 18 watts. The box also contains a USB-C cable (Type-C to A), a SIM tool, a transparent protective case, a Quick Start guide, and a warranty card.

The Xiaomi Redmi 10 comes with a 12-month warranty.

Input devices and handling - 90 Hz display and a fast fingerprint scanner

The touchscreen can be used smoothly due to its 90 Hz refresh rate. The panel will also adapt automatically to the content being displayed. For example, the display is set to 45 Hz when a static image is shown, while 60 Hz is used for video streaming, and the full 90 Hz is used for gaming or scrolling.

The Redmi 10 can be unlocked biometrically in two ways. The first is with the fingerprint sensor that is integrated into the power button, which works quickly and reliably. The second method is the less secure 2D face scan, which delivers equally good authentication results in good ambient light.

Display - IPS panel with 1080p resolution

Subpixel grid
Subpixel grid

The Xiaomi Redmi 10's 6.5-inch IPS display has a resolution of 2400x1080 pixels (Full HD+) and a pixel density of 405 PPI. The display doesn't support HDR, but it doesn't come with pulse width modulation (PWM), either, which is good news. Since the IPS panel controls its brightness without the help of PWM, the Redmi 10 is also perfectly suited for users with sensitive eyes, who would otherwise be bothered by this effect.

The IPS panel achieves a good brightness of 518 cd/m² on average. With evenly distributed bright and dark image areas (APL50) instead of a pure white background, the brightness reaches up to 535 cd/m². The Redmi 10 achieves a maximum of 439 cd/m² when the brightness sensor is not enabled. At the lowest brightness setting, we measure 1.34 cd/m².

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 20848 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The color reproduction of the Redmi 10 can be adjusted using three modes: "Vivid", "Saturated", and "Standard". In addition, the color temperature can be adjusted using a color wheel or the three presets "Standard", "Warm", and "Cool".

We get the most accurate color reproduction using the "Vivid" and "Warm" settings. In this case, the DeltaE deviations for colors and grayscales are within the ideal range (DeltaE ≤ 3), just like the color temperature of 6,450 K. The IPS panel also treats viewers with rich contrasts thanks to its low black level.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
28.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16.4 ms rise
↘ 12.4 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 67 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (23.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
42 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 22.8 ms rise
↘ 19.2 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 56 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (37.5 ms).

Since the Xiaomi offers quite a bit of brightness, it should actually be easy to use outdoors. However, the IPS panel's viewing-angle stability, which is not very good, poses a few challenges for outdoor use. The smartphone should be held as perpendicular to the viewing direction as possible, because even tilting the screen by about 45° is enough for the display to become noticeably darker. However, the panel doesn't darken any further at flatter viewing angles.

Performance - Solid everyday performance with the MediaTek Helio G88

The Xiaomi Redmi 10 is powered by the mid-range MediaTek Helio G88 SoC. The octa-core CPU is manufactured in a 12 nm size, and it uses two fast ARM Cortex-A75 performance cores that run at up to 2 GHz. This is accompanied by six ARM Cortex-A55 power-saving cores (max 1.8 GHz). The ARM Mali-G52 serves as the GPU.

The MediaTek SoC is supported by 4 GB of LPDDR4x RAM, which makes for a largely smooth everyday performance. However, minor delays can occasionally occur in the otherwise smoothly animated MIUI during multitasking.

Our review shows that the Redmi 10 is one of the faster budget smartphones with its MediaTek Helio G88. There's no way to beat the Motorola Moto G50 with its Snapdragon 480 5G, but the Nokia G20 and the Oppo A16s, which are both equipped with the MediaTek Helio G35, are clearly beaten by the Xiaomi phone.

The Redmi 10 is just as fast in the synthetic benchmarks as its predecessor, the Redmi 9, which even scores slightly better in the browser benchmarks at times. However, this isn't noticeable in terms of browsing speeds. Websites load quickly and can be scrolled through briskly.

Games - The 90 Hz display doesn't provide any advantages

The Xiaomi Redmi 10 runs games quite smoothly, and it accompanies them with stereo sound, but it can hardly take advantage of its 90 Hz display. Only in graphically very simple games like Subway Surfers is 60 frames per second possible. The fact that there are still brief drops in frame rates here shows that the hardware is more or less already working at its limit. The FPS limit is even much lower in graphically demanding games like PUBG Mobile. The Redmi 10 still manages to display the popular shooter at a practically constant 30 FPS even in the HD/High setting.

We determined the frame rates with the Gamebench tool.
