With the Redmi Note 10 Line Up, Xiaomi has once again impressively proven who is the absolute king of the middle class. Led by the screen-wonder Redmi Note 10 Pro (for testing) via the all-rounder Redmi Note 10S and the normal Redmi Note 10, everyone has been convincing so far. So there is only one device missing in our test, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G has accompanied me through everyday life for the last 3 weeks. In this test you will learn everything there is to know about the Note 10 5G. In the Redmi Note 10 LineUp, the Note 10 5G is placed just above the normal Redmi Note 10 and below the Redmi Note 10S. Technically, the Redmi Note 10 5G corresponds 1:1 to the Poco M3 Pro. So if you have an eye on the device, you can get some practical impressions here.
Design and processing of Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G
With a size of 161.8 x, 75.3 x 8.9 millimeters and a weight of 192 grams, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G has a normal size and weight. The design differs somewhat from the Note 10 and Note 10S. A chic Xiaomi design with a plastic back and plastic frame awaits you in the colors silver, blue, green, and gray.
I used the gray version of the device and used it for over three weeks without a protective case. No sign of scratches on the back. The device diligently and quickly collects fingerprints. As a result, it unfortunately quickly loses its valuable look. The only thing that helps is regular cleaning or a cover. As we know from the Mi 11 series, the camera hill of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G is two-tone. A silver ring around two of the three cameras stands out from a black base. The fact that the cover of the camera hill has a small cut-out for the two-color flash is a bit negative here. We can’t really explain that and are a bit unhappy about the resulting sharp edge.
Otherwise, the camera hill only protrudes about a millimeter and is flush with the protective cover provided. However, it is also a bit thicker around the camera. The workmanship of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G is excellent, apart from the point mentioned. All transitions are cleanly executed, and nothing feels cheap in any way. The edges of the display are almost 3 millimeters left and right, almost 4 millimeters at the top, and the chin measures 7 millimeters. It is a bit thicker than on more expensive devices, but the Redmi Note 10 5G still looks very valuable.
Xiaomi arranges the buttons of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G all on the right side of the device. On the top, there is a 3.5mm headphone jack, an IR transmitter, and a microphone. On the left is the hybrid slot for two Nano-SIM cards or one Nano SIM + MicroSD card.
The Note 10 5G does not have a notification LED and the always-on display falls victim to the use of IPS vs. AMOLED in the Redmi Note 10. In addition to a transparent cover, the scope of delivery also includes a USB-A to USB-C charging cable and a USB-A EU power supply unit with 22.5 watts of power. A protective film is applied at the factory.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G does without some features that we are used to from the middle class and that the cheaper Note 10 brings with it. We would have liked a triple slot. We wouldn’t even have complained about the missing hybrid stereo if the Redmi Note 10 didn’t have it. Otherwise, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G scores with high-quality workmanship and a high-quality design. In addition, the great fingerprint sensor should be emphasized!
Display of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G Different
like the rest of the Redmi Note 10 squad, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G relies on a 6.5-inch IPS display. All other devices come with AMOLED screens. The Note 10 5G, on the other hand, relies on IPS with a 90Hz refresh rate. This ensures a very smooth user experience, but the color saturation and black levels are inferior to an AMOLED screen. The resolution is 1080 x 2400 pixels, which corresponds to a pin-sharp distribution of 440 pixels per inch.
We measured the brightness manually at 320 lux, in automatic mode the Note 10 5G managed up to 410 lux. Compared to the 780 lux of Note 10, this is not a good value. Even the Note 9T, which can more or less be considered its predecessor, manages 500 – 600 lux. In practice, in rainy Hamburg, I hardly had any problems with the readability of the display. However, the display is probably too dark for sun lovers. At least the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G gets really dark. We measure just 1 lux in the darkest setting.
The perfectly integrated front camera is a positive feature. There is no edge bleeding on either the camera or the edges of the screen. Speaking of positives, the high refresh rate is great. The 90Hz setting hides an automatic mode that automatically switches between 90 and 60 Hz if the content does not benefit from the increased frequency. In addition to high 90Hz for games and feeds, the display can be regulated down to 30Hz to save the battery. However, this function is not yet available and, according to Xiaomi, will be provided later via an update.
A free calibration of the display colors including reading mode is available as a feature. If you want, you can also switch on a “dark mode” (black/white reversal). Both modes can be terminated.
Otherwise, the Note 10 5G features Wide vine L1 for HD streaming and 10-point multi-touch. Gorilla Glass 3 is used to protect against scratches. Overall, the Redmi Note 10’s display is good for the price. Nevertheless, it cannot quite keep up with the rest of the Note 10 devices. In practice, the display is about on par with a Poco X3 Pro. It comes with 120Hz and is slightly brighter, but edge bleeding is a much bigger issue with the X3. Xiaomi has solved this excellently with the Note 10 5G.
Performance of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G
Let’s first clarify the competition with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G. There is the Poco M3 at the bottom for around 9000tk. That makes it around 210,000 points in Antutu. We would then have the two siblings of the Redmi Note 10 5G in direct price competition. The BDT.18,000 10S get 320,000 points in Antutu and the Note 10 gets around 210,000 points. Finally, we have to mention the performance monster in this price range, the Poco X3 Pro. The Poco X3 Pro manages an almost unbelievable 540,000 points and regularly costs around BDT13500- i.e. less than the Redmi Note 10 5G with an RRP of BDT 20,800. Enough of the torture, here are the benchmarks for the Note 10 5G:
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G fits in pretty well between its siblings. Far from the Poco X3 Pro, but still with respectable performance. Powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 700, the Note 10 5G has enough power for everyday use. The two Cortex-A76 cores with a clock rate of 2.2GHz in combination with six Cortex-A55 cores with a clock rate of 2GHz are suitable even for moderate gaming. Call of Duty Mobile runs consistently at over 30FPS on medium settings. The 7nm architecture on which the Dimensity 700 is based also helps the Redmi Note 10 5G to achieve strong battery performance. But more on that later. Multitasking is also no problem with the built-in 4GB RAM. Noticeable waiting times only occur when switching between demanding games. All in all, the Dimensity 700 offers a welcome performance bonus compared to the Redmi Note 10. Apps load quickly and, in combination with the 90Hz refresh rate, you almost speed through the system. Nevertheless, there is no increase in performance compared to the Redmi Note 9T.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G :System
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G currently runs with MIUI 12 on Android 11, just like all other smartphones in the series. If you want to learn more about the system, please have a look at the Redmi Note 10 Pro review, we’ll keep it a little shorter here.
The Note 10 5G comes with 16 preinstalled apps, all of which can be easily deleted. If you want to clean up the system even further, just use this guide. Subtle advertising in selected system apps is also part of Xiaomi, which you can also get rid of with these instructions. What then remains is a highly customized, customizable system. At this point, however, there are also three weak points that I noticed.
Dark mode gave me quite a headache. MIUI automatically tries to adapt all apps to dark mode, which unfortunately sometimes looks horrible. Apps can be excluded manually, but the exceptions cancel themselves without any reason. The dark mode is not a useful feature for me. Furthermore, I had two system crashes within the three weeks, which led to a reboot. That’s too much for me for a short period of time. Last but not least, it takes an extremely long time to charge the device from 0 to 1 percent battery. If the battery runs out on the way, you need a quarter of an hour at the socket before the device even starts up again.
With regard to updates, a short warning at this point. We can well imagine that the Note 10 5G will be the most unpopular device in the Note 10 lineup. This is often reason enough for Xiaomi to stop delivering updates early on
The camera of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G
To start with, the Note 10 5G’s camera has a nasty surprise in store. Unlike all other devices in the range, the 5G version of Note 10 comes without an ultra-wide-angle camera. Three sensors are installed, the main camera, a macro camera, and a depth sensor. For us, at this price and with the competition, simply omitting the UWW is an absolute no-go and cannot be explained. But let’s take a look at the cameras that are there:
- Main camera: Omnivision OV48B, 48MP, f1.79, 1/2″, 0.8µm
- Macro camera: SK Hynix HI259h, 2MP, f2.4
- Depth sensor: Galaxy Core GC02m1b, 2MP, f2.4
- Selfie: Omnivision OV8856: 8MP, f2.0
We haven’t heard of the Omnivision OV48B from any reviews yet. The Redmi Note 10S uses the 64MP version of the sensor and has delivered good results. So let’s take a look at the shots of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G: daylight shots
Connectivity of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G is a dual SIM smartphone with a hybrid slot. This means that either two nano-SIM cards or a nano-SIM card + microSD card can be used. Coverage of all relevant frequencies ensures reception in Germany and the EU.
- 5G: n1, n3, n7, n8, n20, n28, n38, n40, n41, n66, n77, n78
- 4G: LTE FDD B1/2/3/4/5/7/8/20/28
- 4G: LTE TDD B38/40/41
- 3G: UMTS B1/2/4/5/8 2G: GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
You have already seen it, 5G is also included. Anyone who has asked about it now is left undecided. 5G contracts are still expensive, but the added value for private users can at least be discussed. In my opinion, 5G has no place in budget or mid-range devices. The SAR value of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G is 0.54 W/kg head and 0.895 W/kg body. VoLTE and VoWIFI are both at the start. The call quality is okay, but the auricle is a bit quiet.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G can be connected to 2.4GHz and 5GHz WIFI networks, the plastic back ensures excellent reception. Even on another floor and behind two walls, the connection hardly suffers. Bluetooth is installed in version 5.1, including aptX, aptX HD, LDAC, and LHDC V1-V3. In practice, the reception was stable and the range was okay. NFC is included, the chip is installed high up in the device, and mobile payment works quickly and reliably. A 3.5mm jack socket is available for friends of clear audio enjoyment and an FM radio app is also available. GPS, Galileo, Glonass, and Beidou locate the device with an accuracy of 4 meters. It can take up to 10-15 seconds for that to work. In practice, localization in the car, on foot, and on the bike was not a problem.
On the sensor front, there’s the standard package, which means a proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope, compass, and on top of that an IR transmitter. Stereo sound has to be dispensed with. It is simply unclear to us why Xiaomi does not install a hybrid stereo, as in the inexpensive Note 10 and 10S. At least the mono speaker is very loud and the sound quality is surprisingly good for the price. battery life
Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G: Battery life
The Redmi Note 10 was fully convincing in the battery test. The combination of AMOLED and economical processor ensured more than 15 hours in the PCMark battery test. The Note 10 5G, on the other hand, relies on IPS and a Dimensity 700. In practice, this ensures an appropriate result. In the PCMark test, the 5000mAh is enough for a strong 12 hours. A really good result, but the device is still 3 hours behind the normal Redmi Note 10. In a normal operation, 2 days with pictures, some gaming, and social media are possible. For me, 8-9 hours of screen time were possible.
Loading is one of those inexplicable throwbacks to the Note 10 series siblings again. The cheaper Note 10 manages 33 watts, and the Note 10 5G only 18 watts. The included 22.5-watt power supply fully charges the device in 2 hours.
It is a pity that the device weakens with other power supplies. My Aukey Omnia 60 Watt power supply usually charges everything really quickly, including other Xiaomi devices. The Note 10 5G, on the other hand, refuses to go into fast charge mode and takes 3 hours to get to 100%
