Xiaomi Redmi 10 review

Xiaomi Redmi 10 review

Speaking of the specifications of the screen, you will find very good numbers, a 6.5-inch IPS LCD screen, FHD resolution with a frequency of 90Hz.

The most prominent update in the screen from the previous generation is the high frequency with the feature of automatic adjustment of the screen frequency to suit use and preserve the battery, but the lowest frequency that the phone can reach is not clarified.

Is higher frequency an advantage here? Certainly, the 90Hz is an advantage and you will feel some smoothness during browsing and a little softer animation, but the high-frequency feature will end here, this experience will not take further place like games and this is due to the processor and its capabilities in this price category, so do not wait for the addition of high frequency in the experience the games.

What about color and viewing experience?

The quality of the screen in terms of viewing pleasure and the colors are below average, the colors are not dazzling and do not offer anything special, and the brightness levels can reach 400nits, which is a good number, but when using the phone under direct sunlight, it will remain difficult and uncomfortable.

Turning to the lighting sensor, the experience here, unfortunately, is bad for estimating the light inside the house. It always made the screen lighting less than it should, so I turned to manually adjusting the lighting and not relying on the lighting sensor.

The conclusion is in the screen experience

The noticeable development in the screen is the high-frequency 90Hz, which we used to see only in Infinix devices in this price category, but through my experience, this category needed to experience a better screen and more enjoyable colors than the trend to high frequency and the lack of development in the quality of the screen itself, especially that The price of the Xiaomi Redmi 10 phone overlaps with the prices of other Xiaomi phones as well, but it offers AMOLED screens and better colors for sure.

Actual camera experience

Let’s agree that in this price category and with this sensor, you will get the best possible details, which can be provided by this powerful sensor, but when you move to what Xiaomi offers in image and color processing, you will not find anything new, we will find colors that are far from reality and dull, the dynamic range is weak in Various shooting conditions, and photos in soft (industrial) lighting.

Note that you should note that this is the normal performance of cameras in this price category, but what was indicated is that the new 50-megapixel phone camera did not offer anything superstitious or a noticeable development from the competitors.

Night photography is good in medium lighting with a noticeable improvement thanks to the powerful sensor, but also these results are less than expected from the phone camera.

Selfie photography also suffers from the same problems, colors are not the best, especially in low lights, and portrait mode puts a forced beautification.

The wide-angle camera performs well in strong lighting.

Xiaomi Redmi 10 Performance Specifications and Actual Experience

Moving on to performance, which is the most important factor in this price category, which determines the experience in general, as we saw previously, the performance can spoil you to experience any features of the phone, as we saw with the Redmi Note 9 in the past.

The Redmi 9, the previous version of the Redmi 10, was providing an excellent and stable performance experience, and here we find an improvement in the processor with MediaTek Helio G88 compared to the G80 in the previous version.

The G88 processor is more of a feature update than a performance update, as we will find its support for the 50-megapixel sensor and the frequency of 90Hz, and this is what we found on the phone.

As for performance, there was a slight improvement in graphics performance only.

Battery performance and charging speed

The mobile offers a battery size of 5000 mAh as usual, which lasts up to 8 hours, screen-on-time without games, in addition to a fast-charging capacity of 18W, which charges the battery in two hours and then a second.

Sensors and Networking Experience

Redmi 10 comes with a side fingerprint that works accurately and quickly without any problems, the phone also provides all the basic sensors and there is a real call sensor, not software, and it works perfectly.

Also, the navigation and GPS were excellent, in addition to having a compass that works very well.

The phone has an IR sensor to use the phone as a remote, and there is also support for OTG

This time the phone loses the absence of a notification light or NFC, in addition to the presence of an FM radio, but this time the feature of playing the radio without connecting headphones is absent.

Voice and mic call experience

The phone offers stereo speakers, which is a good feature in this price category, but in the actual experience, the phone speakers did not provide the loudest and purest sound, compared to the Redmi 9T, for example, it provided a better sound experience.

As for the call headset and the call microphone, they do not have any problems and provide excellent performance.

Interface and software features

Redmi 10 introduces MIUI 12.5 interface with Android 11

Absence of dislike features such as

  • No copy apps feature
  • No Second Space feature
  • It provides many features such as
  • The Video Toolbox gives you the ability to listen to YouTube videos with the screen off, and features in recording and taking screenshots of videos.
  • As for Floating Windows, which makes applications float on the screen and you can minimize them, like the Messenger’s head chat
  • The Lite Mode feature simplifies the phone experience by making everything larger and hiding complex settings, so it provides a much simpler experience for those without smartphone experience.
  • Also with the Casting feature, which is one of the most distinctive additions in Android destinations for other companies, from the easy controls and add-ons that they offer you to broadcast an image, video, game, etc.
  • In addition to the Themes store, which is one of the best and largest compared to other Android destinations, and how you can completely change the look of your phone.
  • There is also a fingerprint or password lock feature
  • One of the negative points here in the Xiaomi interface is the gesture navigation, which is one of the heaviest and worst experiences here and unfortunately it has not been improved with the new version MIUI 12.5

Redmi 10 copy price

The 4 GB RAM version with 64 GB storage space is priced at 2,700 pounds (exclusive to Amazon)
As for the second version, 4 GB RAM with 128 GB storage space at a price of 3000 pounds (the version that I try now)
Finally, the highest version of 6 GB RAM with 128 GB storage space at a price of 3400 EGP


Xiaomi Redmi 10 introduced developments in all aspects compared to the last generation, we find in the screen a higher frequency, in the sound, we find stereo speakers, in performance the new improved processor has been added with its new features, also in the cameras have been improved by a difference from the last generation, so the phone is a good mix in these Price category compared to competitors and previous generations of the same series.

But also the price of the phone has become more expensive, the previous versions started at prices close to 2000 pounds up to 2700 pounds for the highest copy, but now we are talking about the lowest version at 2700 pounds, and the highest version reaches 3400 pounds and puts itself in competition with other phones stronger from the same company and specifications Higher in performance and screen.

Therefore, the best version that you can buy from the phone is the 2700-LE version and the 3000-LE version, given that the Xiaomi Note 10 is not currently available in the market in the 3000-LE category, so the Redmi 10 at 3000 pounds is a good choice.

As for the 2700 version, it is certainly the best because of its lower price and its distance from competition for higher categories, but Amazon’s monopoly on this version may make us not see it permanently and its disappearance quickly, but we hope the opposite.
