Reviews for the Xiaomi Redmi 10X 5G

83.8% Xiaomi Redmi 10X 5G Smartphone Review - Faster than a Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra? | Notebookcheck
The Redmi 10X is an affordable mid-range smartphone that scores with a beautiful AMOLED panel and the fast MediaTek Dimensity 820 processor. We were positively surprised by the reliable speed of the optical in-display fingerprint sensor, which is excellent for this price range and whose response isn't really any slower than the ultra-sound solution in the Samsung Galaxy S20 smartphones.

Xiaomi has released its Redmi 10X series recently, unveiling the cheapest 5G phones around. This new series includes the Redmi 10X and Redmi 10X Pro. Both phones are powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 820 chipset, bringing upper mid-range power and 5G connectivity to the table. In fact, it should be noted that Xiaomi claims the chip has an Antutu score of 415,672 points, which is not far behind the Snapdragon 855‘s 445,343 points according to the firm. In terms of GPU, the Redmi 10X has been equipped with a Mali-G57 MC5. As for the 5G capabilities, Xiaomi previously confirmed that the Redmi 10X series supports 5G + 5G dual SIM technology. This is definitely possible with the MediaTek chipset, as Qualcomm 5G chips do not support 5G + 5G just yet. Both phones differ slightly in their battery capabilities, with the Redmi 10X Pro being packed with a 4,520mAh battery and 33W charging, while the standard Redmi 10X carries a 4,520mAh battery that tops out at 22.5W charging. The Xiaomi Redmi 10X 5G comes in different colours: Blue, Gold, and Pink for users to choose from.

As far as the display is concerned, the Redmi 10X sports a 6.57-inch OLED screen with a 2,400 x 1,080 resolution (HDR 10+, 20:9 screen ratio). The smartphone also comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor. In terms of its camera, there is a triple rear camera combination on this device: a 48MP main camera, followed by an 8MP ultra-wide camera, along with a 2MP depth sensor. The selfie camera on the Redmi 10X has been reduced to 16MP  compared to the 20MP on the Redmi 10X Pro. Apart from that, an interesting addition to the camera setup has to be Xiaomi’s decision of bringing automatic watermarks to the phone. This will allow the phone to add watermarks depending on what is in the picture (such as a cat, children or others). While it is undeniable that Xiaomi’s existing device watermarks are divisive, this is nevertheless an interesting way to use them. It should also be noted that the Redmi 10X has IP53 splash resistance.

Other features that have been incorporated within the Redmi 10X include an accelerometer, a gyroscope, a proximity sensor, and a compass. In addition to that, the smartphone has also been incorporated with an Infrared port, USB-2.0 Type C, Radio with recording, and Bluetooth 5.1. The USB Type-C port allows data transfer and charging, thus improving the overall user experience. As far as the RAM and storage options are concerned, the Xiaomi Redmi 10X comes with either 6GB of RAM with 64GB or 128GB storage, or 8GB of RAM with either 128GB or 256GB storage options for users to choose from depending on their individual need and preference. Overall, this device is definitely a great option to be explored, but the choice of owning one remains subjective.
