Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G review: Budget 5G smartphone with large battery

Abundance or redundancy? With the Redmi Note 10 5G, Xiaomi introduces another inexpensive smartphone that aims to score points with a generous set of features. A modern SoC, fast storage, microSD support, an IR blaster, a large battery, and an audio jack are included in the list. Does that mean you can be blissfully happy for less than 200 Euros (~$239)?
Daniel Schmidt, 👁 Daniel Schmidt, Brian Burriston (translated by Stephanie Chamberlain), 🇩🇪 🇳🇱 ...

With the Redmi Note 9T 5G, the first smartphone of the model series that supports the modern mobile standard was introduced at the beginning of the year. The Redmi Note 10 5G isn't that different from it, and it offers an identical storage configuration as well as a 5,000 mAh battery, among other things. The Note 10's display is slightly smaller, but it supports 90 Hz. In return, a somewhat weaker processor and the older Gorilla Glass 3 have been installed.

At the same time, the Poco M3 Pro 5G is identical in terms of specs, but it costs even less and only differs when it comes to its design. The competition is usually more expensive, but the realme 8 5G and the Galaxy A32 5G are strong alternatives.

Case - Lots of colorful plastic without looking cheap

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G's design is simple, and most accents are set by the colors of the plastic backs, which are available in Aurora Green, Chrome Silver, Graphite Gray, and Nighttime Blue. The front is protected by Gorilla Glass 3 and covered by an additional protective film.

The build quality of the Xiaomi smartphone is good. The gap dimensions are both tight and even, and twisting attempts are rejected by the device. However, the additional plastic frame around the display immediately reveals the phone's price range based on its looks, especially since the frame is also encased in plastic.

The card slot has a plastic cover that has the same color as the frame and sits flush with it. The hybrid slot provides room for either two nano SIM cards or a microSD card instead of the second SIM. The Redmi smartphone doesn't have an IP certification.

Connectivity - The Redmi Note 10 5G almost has it all

No real points of criticism can be found in terms of the Redmi Note 10 5G's connectivity; the only thing that isn't particularly generous for a 5G smartphone is the 4 GB of RAM. Users who want to save a few Euros can opt for the 64 GB version, which costs 20 Euros (~$24) less.

The USB-C port operates according to the 2.0 standard and supports OTG, meaning that external peripherals and storage devices can be connected to the smartphone. However, wired video output isn't available.

Otherwise, the Redmi phone is pretty complete with Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, an IR blaster, an analog radio receiver, and an audio jack; only a notification LED is missing.

microSD card reader

Nominally, microSD cards up to a size of 512 GB are supported, and the exFAT file system doesn't pose any problems for the Redmi Note 10 5G either. However, a memory card can only be used as auxiliary media storage; the smartphone doesn't support storing app data on it or formatting it as internal storage.

The microSD slot's speed is at a good level in the Cross Platform Disk Test, but the Note 10 5G proved to be very slow in our copy test with our Toshiba Exceria Pro M501 reference card.

Software - Android 11 and MIUI 12.0 for the Xiaomi smartphone

Android 11 is used as the operating system, and Xiaomi runs its in-house MIUI 12.0.8 on top of it, which is equipped with security patches at the level of May 1, 2021 at the time of testing and is therefore up to date. The smartphone sports the "Android Enterprise Recommended" badge, which means that it will receive Android security updates for a minimum of three years. However, Xiaomi hasn't provided any information regarding major updates and the updating frequency.

The UI, as such, is very strict in its use of resources. Users who don't set exceptions for apps will quickly have to deal with them being restricted in the background. Besides its own apps, Xiaomi also preinstalls several third-party applications, but all of them can be uninstalled by the user.

Communication and GNSS - Good positioning capabilities and 5G

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G can access the Internet using all current mobile standards, and it also has a good frequency coverage. 5G SA is supported, but Xiaomi doesn't state for which bands exactly. The smartphone doesn't show any issues in terms of connectivity.

Despite the device's fast connection in terms of mobile networks, it only supports Wi-Fi 5 without MIMO antenna technology at best. The data rates with our reference router, the Netgear Nighthawk AX12, are correspondingly low. The standard actually has some room for improvement when it comes to sending data, but stable data transfer is more important.

The Redmi smartphone can communicate with the GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, and the SBAS supporting system satellite networks (all single-band). The satellite signal is obtained very quickly outdoors, and it's also very accurate with a precision of one meter.

The Note 10 5G has to face a comparison with the Garmin Edge 500 on a short bike ride. Although it does have its flaws, it usually determines the position better than the bike computer.

Telephone and call quality

The Redmi Note 10 5G has a hybrid SIM slot, so it can either be used in dual-SIM mode or with a single SIM and a microSD card. An eSIM isn't supported in Germany, nor is Wi-Fi calling or SIP accounts. However, VoLTE is on board.

The call characteristics are good. The user can be understood well when the device is held to the ear. Sound reverberates audibly over the speaker, but the microphones have a good range, so that the user talking doesn't need to remain in the immediate vicinity.

The Xiaomi phone is only average in terms of noise reduction. Minor noise is filtered out, but if you're sitting in close proximity to an AC unit, for example, you'll have to put up with it being audible during the call. Strong background noise is always audible, and the user's voice is transmitted understandably in that case, but it sounds very muffled.

Cameras - Redmi Note 10 5G with triple-camera setup

Selfie taken with the Redmi Note 10 5G
Selfie taken with the Redmi Note 10 5G

The front camera has a resolution of 8 MP, and it comes with a lot of settings for selfies. Although a Portrait mode is included, all options are already available in Photo mode. The difference is whether the background should be blurred or not. Photos are well lit, but selfies already look very soft with the default settings. Videos can be recorded in Full HD (30 FPS) at best, and they have a fairly high crop factor.

The main camera offers 48 MP (probably a Sony IMX582 sensor) and is equipped with electronic image stabilization. This enables decent photos during the day, but they look a bit oversharpened and lack dynamic range. The lens still captures enough light in the dark, but the autofocus no longer works properly, so that many details become blurry. If you want to zoom in, you have to do it digitally, which works quite well up to a 2x magnification; beyond that, however, you won't be able to achieve decent results. In addition, a sensor for depth information and a macro lens are included. The latter has a low close-up limit of about three centimeters, and it produces very oversharpened and somewhat washed-out looking pictures. We recommend using the digital zoom, since it delivers more pleasing results.

The main camera is only capable of capturing videos in Full HD (30 FPS) as well. It's a pity that Xiaomi doesn't take advantage of the sensor's potential here by allowing 4K videos at least.

Accessories and warranty - Protective case and power adapter included in the box

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G comes with a modular 22.5-watt power adapter, a USB cable (Type-A to Type-C), a SIM tool, a silicone protective cover, a leaflet with safety instructions, and a quick-start guide.

There's only a 12-month warranty that can't be extended, but the retailer's warranty remains unaffected by this.

Input devices and handling - Note 10 5G with side-mounted fingerprint scanner

The capacitive touchscreen of the Redmi Note 10 5G has good gliding properties, and it responds to inputs quite quickly and reliably. However, the pre-applied protective film has a higher gliding resistance and shows smudges very quickly as well. Moreover, Google's GBoard is set up as keyboard layout, but it can be replaced with any other app from the Play Store.

The customizable vibration motor can be quite strong if desired, but it feels a bit spongy. At least it's pleasantly quiet. The fingerprint scanner is integrated into the power button; it's able to recognize stored fingerprints reliably as long as fingers aren't too damp, and it unlocks the smartphone at a pleasing speed. Alternatively or additionally, two-dimensional facial recognition can be configured using the front-facing camera, making for a much faster but less secure solution.

Display - 90 Hz IPS panel without PWM

Subpixel structure
Subpixel structure

The 6.5-inch (16.51 cm) IPS display found in the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G has a resolution of 2400x1080 pixels that offers a high image sharpness. The refresh rate is set to 60 Hz by default, but it can also be increased to 90 Hz in the settings. The system can adjust the refresh rate adaptively between 90 and 30 Hz.

With the ambient light sensor activated, the panel achieves a good brightness that remains constant in the APL50 measurement. Users who choose to disable the automatic regulation will have a maximum of 440 cd/m² at their disposal.

Using a black background, the measured black level of 0.32 cd/m² is good and ensures a crisp contrast. With an even distribution of bright and dark areas, the black level increases to 0.46 cd/m², which reduces the contrast ratio to 1,196:1.

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 15366 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

We examine the display quality using the CalMAN software. The most color-accurate result is achieved when the "Standard" color scheme is used. The default is an automatic mode that adapts colors to the ambient light and provides a much cooler image.

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
29.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 14.4 ms rise
↘ 14.8 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. » 70 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (23.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
43.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 21.2 ms rise
↘ 22.4 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. » 64 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (37.8 ms).

On sunny days, it quickly becomes evident that the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G could have used a little more brightness. The display looks very dim in sunlight, and on top of that, it's also reflective. On the other hand, there are no issues when in the shade.

The Redmi Note 10 5G's viewing-angle stability is good in everyday use; only flat viewing angles lead to a decrease in brightness. We weren't able to detect color inversions or a glow effect in the IPS panel, and we didn't notice any screen bleeding in our review sample either.

Performance - Redmi smartphone is equipped with the MediaTek Dimensity 700

The Redmi Note 10 5G has a MediaTek Dimensity 700 at its core that can access 4 GB of LPDDR4x RAM. The SoC is manufactured in a 7 nm process, and it can make use of two Cortex-A76 performance cores (up to 2.2 GHz) as well as six less power-hungry Cortex-A55 cores (up to 2.0 GHz). The integrated ARM Mali-G57 MP2 handles graphics processing.

Xiaomi needlessly confronts us with problems when it comes to benchmarks, because some of them are blocked by the firmware and can't be executed, which is a known issue on UL's website, among others. In addition to 3DMark, GFXBench and the current AnTuTu are also affected. So far, Xiaomi hasn't issued a statement regarding this problem.

Nevertheless, we were able to run some of the blocked benchmarks. Performance is similar to that of the realme 8 5G, which uses the same SoC. In Geekbench, the realme smartphone is always a bit faster, but the competitor really outperforms the Redmi smartphone in the system benchmarks, which can be attributed to the different UIs and the extra RAM. In return, the Note 10 5G beats its rival in AIMark.

All in all, the 700 is slightly slower than the 800U, which is used in the Redmi Note 9T 5G, and it positions itself close to the Snapdragon 730(G) in terms of CPU performance, in other words, in the mid-range.

The browser performance leaves a good impression in everyday use. However, more complex sites sometimes require a brief moment to load completely. The Note 10 5G falls a bit short of expectations in most benchmarks.

* ... smaller is better

The UFS 2.2 storage in the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G promises high transfer speeds. As a matter of fact, these are actually much higher than in the rival realme 8 5G when it comes to sequential writing. However, a comparison with the predecessor model reveals that our test smartphone still has room for improvement, which also applies to reading and writing small data blocks. However, none of this is noticeable in everyday use.

Games - Not made for high frame-rate gaming

With our partner GameBench, we analyzed the gaming performance of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5G in more detail. The results are mixed: On one hand, popular games like Wild Rift run smoothly at 60 FPS even in the highest detail settings, while older games like Dead Trigger 2 run at a maximum of 40 FPS with numerous frame drops. In the demanding game PUBG Mobile, the HD setting can be selected at best, which then results in a fairly constant 30 FPS.

The sensors work properly, but the touchscreen shows a comparatively high gliding resistance, and the mono speaker quickly becomes blocked when the device is held in landscape mode. In this regard, the Xiaomi smartphone is certainly not aimed at enthusiasts but rather at casual gamers.
