Affordable and good-looking: The Xiaomi Redmi Note 10
With the Redmi Note 10, Xiaomi delivers a successor to the Redmi Note 9 that not only looks good but also offers enough performance for everyday use.

The build quality of Xiaomi smartphones has been very good for a long time, and the manufacturer has always kept up with the times in terms of design. But we really like the looks of the Redmi Note 10, and that despite the fact that the back is only made of plastic. The front is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass, and there's finally also an IP certification.

With IP53, this only reflects the protection against dust and splashing water, but it's no longer just a promise from the manufacturer. Another very good thing is that the dual nano SIM slot doesn't get blocked even when a microSD card is inserted.

The new Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 is intended to provide enough performance. It only performs slightly better than the MediaTek Helio G85 in the Redmi Note 9 in our test, and it even scores worse in some individual disciplines. In addition, the Redmi Note 10 is only available with 4 GB of RAM. In return, however, variants with 64 GB or 128 GB of internal storage are available.

The 48 MP main camera provides good snapshots. Nevertheless, Xiaomi could have omitted the 2 MP macro sensor in the camera setup, which consists of four sensors in total, since it offers virtually no added value. On the other hand, the front-facing camera delivers good portrait shots with its 13 MP.

Besides a 5,000 mAh battery that ensures a very long runtime, the manufacturer also equips the Redmi Note 10 with an infrared sensor. This turns the inexpensive smartphone into a replacement for remote controls at home, for example. However, NFC has not been included.

Our review shows what else the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 has to offer.
