Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro, video analysis:
Design (almost) perfect for the new Redmi 10 Pro
The physical aspect is one of the things that first enter our eyes when buying a new phone. On this occasion, this new Redmi 10 Pro seemed like a very nice smartphone within sobriety from his body. A phone without eccentricities but that complies.
We have a rear with this finish that is becoming so popular that, depending on where you look at it, it lets us see a lighter or darker tone. A rear that, by the way, will be available in three colors: gradient bronze, glacier blue and, the one we have analyzed, onyx gray. A color that, in bright light, seems beautiful and elegant to me.
The only thing that will catch your attention about this rear part, for better or for worse, is its camera module. A double height rectangular shaped module that houses the 4 lenses of which I will give you more details later. But what is negative about it? Well, as it already happens in most phones on the market, it protrudes a lot from the body generating an important step in the back. This makes it practically impossible to use it resting on any surface. Although, as usual, placing a cover on the smartphone solves the problem.
On this occasion, the sides of the Redmi 10 Pro seem to me to be better cared for than those of other phones in its range. The finishing of the edges is better achieved and they make the union of front and back a little more continuous, which I appreciate. In addition, on these sides we find key elements such as the dual speaker which has a great power and with a correct sound, the USB-C connector, a 3.5mm audio jack or the power button itself that includes the fingerprint reader inside. A position that, more and more, many manufacturers are choosing.
And accompanying this unlocking system, we also have the system of facial recognition. A pack that works quite well, recognition is done very quickly and without hesitation. Regarding face detection, we do not have the most advanced system on the market, but it performs perfectly in its performance.
Turning now to the front, here we find a great novelty in the Redmi Note family. We are facing a 6.67 ″ AMOLED panel with a wide aspect ratio of 20: 9, which includes a refresh rate of 120 Hz and the central hole in the screen to house its only front camera. A panel that looks incredibly good in any situation, with the typical vibrancy of this technology and deep blacks. An important leap in quality to be able to enjoy playing content on this large screen.
In addition, this high refresh rate makes the feeling when moving through the menus, options and navigation in general is a joy. So much so that, if you then try a phone with a lower rate, it will give you the feeling that it is going on pedals,
I tell you from experience.
Although, if I had to take a negative point from this frontal, I have to say that blame the hole. Going into a detail that only affects a few of us, and which is not alarming either, the edge of this camera is surrounded by a silver ring that draws a lot of attention. But the real “problem” is that this is not centered in the gap hole on screen. For those users who are “affected” by symmetry, at first it will shock us a bit.
Power and battery for the most demanding
Now that you know the Redmi Note 10 Pro well on the outside, it’s time to introduce you to what it hides inside. The smartphones of this range are becoming more competitive, and the usual trend of lags and slowdowns is far away. Of course, this new member of the Redmi family was not going to be less.
This phone comes with a very versatile pack in the hardware section, including the processor Snapdragon 732G as a brain and different storage and RAM possibilities:
- 6 GB of RAM + 64 GB of internal storage.
- 6 GB of RAM + 128 GB of internal storage.
- 8 GB of RAM + 128 GB of internal storage.
In our case, I have been testing the intermediate model of these three and I can tell you that its performance meets any type of use. From browsing the internet, using social networks or playing powerful games like Asphalt 9 or Call of Duty mobile, I have not noticed any jerk, lag or lag. And not any kind of overheating after prolonged use. So, as I already told you, whatever the task you need it for, this smartphone will fulfill without problems.
Another aspect that I have enjoyed the most about this new Redmi is its autonomy. This set of components comes accompanied by a battery of 5.2020 mAh that, even for demanding people like me, it will arrive at a day or day and a half of use without problems. Only in those ultra-specific cases in which I have gone through the gaming sessions have I had to go through the charger but, yes, after a full day of use.
In addition, thanks to its 33W fast charge (included in the box) we can fully charge your battery in just under 1 hour. It is not the fastest charge on the market, but the truth is that there are many mAh to “fill”.
But you already know that it is useless to have the best components if it is not accompanied by a good operating system. The Redmi Note 10 Pro arrives with the latest version of MIUI 12, which is based on Android 11.
A customization layer that we have already told you about on many occasions. It comes with a good handful of pre-installed apps (some can be removed), options and customization settings to suit the tastes of each user.
The truth is that MIUI has evolved a lot in recent years and is becoming friendlier for all kinds of people, in addition to having impeccable performance. But, as we always tell you, if you are looking for an experience very close to pure Android, this one still has a way to go.
At this point, it is time to talk about one of the sections that matters most to many users: the cameras. And, if I had to describe this Xiaomi phone in one word, I would call it polyvalent.
Doing a review for each of the lenses that we find around his body, we have 5 in total:
- Main sensor 108 MP, with an aperture of f / 1.9 and Pixel Binning technology which Xiaomi has dubbed “Super Pixel”.
- Ultra wide angle sensor 8 MP, with f / 2.2 aperture and a 118º angle of view.
- Tele-macro sensor 8 MP, with aperture f / 2.4.
- Depth sensor 2 MP, with aperture f / 2.4, to improve portraits.
- Sensor in selfie camera 16 MP, with aperture f / 2.45.
A set that, a priori, seems very complete, but how does it behave on a day-to-day basis? Well, the truth is that it is quite correct in most cases.
Of day and with good light the results that we can get with all its cameras is very good. Obviously, its main sensor stands out above the rest, then the wide angle does drop a bit in quality, but it is still very usable. The results have a good representation of the colors and a correct contrast, although sometimes photographs can be a bit dull.
What I would like to highlight in a very positive way is the macro photography that can be achieved with this Redmi. This double use of the tele-macro sensor leaves some high-quality captures, in which we can get very close to objects to capture very close-ups with great clarity.
Then, by the night, we will notice that the quality drops as usual in this range of phones. The sharpness is less, although the colors hold up well. To highlight, I was pleased to see that the noise is very contained for a telephone. Normally, most mobiles tend to raise shadows to compensate for the darkness and, automatically, a significant grain appears. In this case, although it is not miraculous, it makes up for it very well supported by a night mode which will allow us to retrieve some information from the shadows.
And, regarding the selfieIt is a sensor that performs well but without much fanfare. The quality is correct but, in my opinion, it goes a bit with the extra sharpness that it applies.
With respect to video, I have bittersweet sensations. We will be able to make captures with a maximum quality of 4K at 30 fps. When the mobile is completely still (leaning somewhere, for example) the captures are very good but, at the minimum that we move a little, the trepidations do not take long to appear. Xiaomi includes a digital stabilizer to try to solve this a bit but, the truth is that the result of this does not finish convincing me.
A phone that will be hard to resist
Now, we have to talk about the price of this Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro. This will arrive, as I mentioned before, with different memory configurations with a cost from 279.99 euros for the most basic model.
Taking into account the set of features that it offers, with a careful design and a pack of cameras that will adapt to a large number of situations, little more can be asked of this smartphone. The new member of the Redmi family arrives to compete in one of the most complicated ranges of phones on the market. Although, yes, it has all the weapons to be among the best of this.
If you want a smartphone that is around 300 euros and that, of course, complies with all sections, you should take it into account when making your purchase.
