Xiaomi Redmi 10C

Xiaomi Redmi 10C is one of the entry-level mobile phones Xiaomi has released under the Redmi 10 series. The Redmi 10C comes in a plastic case. A tactilely noticeable diagonal pattern runs through the matte-gloss back, which hides fingerprints fairly subtly. Color options available are blue, green and gray. The case is built very solidly with very small gaps, and Gorilla 3 glass protects the screen. The Redmi 10C features a 6.71-inch LCD screen with HD+ resolution of 1500 x 720 pixels, a water drop screen design. The 60Hz screen is easy to use and sensitive in corners. The fingerprint sensor is unusually integrated into the camera module. It is a little harder for lefties to reach it with their index fingers than for righties. Even in standby, the scanner reliably unlocks the smartphone after a short wait. The Redmi 10C's screen is bright enough for everyday use, and users can even get very accurate colors on the screen when they choose "Standard" as the color scheme. The response time will be too long for gamers, but no obvious flickering is observed.

As for performance, the Redmi 10C is powered by a Snapdragon 680 processor. The device offers users up to 4GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 64GB and 128GB of storage. For extra storage, it has a microSD card. As for the operating system, MIUI 13 based on Android 11 is already pre-installed on the Redmi 10C. The security patch is from early June 2022, so it's still fairly up-to-date. In terms of cameras, the Redmi 10C stands out among its peers. It is equipped with a 5MP front lens , while the rear camera is equipped with a 50MP rear main camera and a 2MP depth-of-field lens. Video can be recorded at up to 1080p and 30fps. Brightness adjustment work is slightly delayed, but overall good. Autofocus works well too.

The Redmi 10C has a 5000mAh long-lasting battery and supports 18W fast charging, giving users enough power for a full day. However in the packaging, only a 10-watt charger is included in the package. With the included charger, a full 5,000mAh battery takes well over 2:30 hours.  With a faster charger, users can reduce the charging time to around 2 hours. NFC for mobile payment services, as well as Bluetooth 5.0 are installed. In addition to 2 SIM cards, a microSD card reader can also be used. In conclusion, the Redmi 10C is a budget smartphone with a fairly high system performance in its class. It is a good looking smartphone too, which makes it a very good option for anybody looking for a budget smartphone.

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

70.43%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
