Come and see my detailed review on Redmi Note 10 Pro!

Redmi Note 10 Pro falls into the upper budget segment and is the successor to the Redmi Note 9 Pro. It’s the most capable of the Note 10 series from Redmi in global markets and offers the most bang for the buck. Onboard you’ll find a solid Snapdragon offering with reasonable RAM and storage options, a high-pixel-count camera, and a large battery. 

Actually, things become a little bit confusing for the Indian market. Redmi Note 10 Pro in the region features a 64MP main camera as opposed to the 108MP sensor found on the global variant. The latter is instead reserved for the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max, which is for all intents and purposes the Redmi Note 10 Pro everywhere else but with an extra suffix.

The India version of the Redmi Note 10 Pro also loses the IP54 rating and NFC. The pricing reflects the regular Note 10 Pro in India and where appropriate we will discuss the pricing of the Indian variant. However, the vast majority of the analysis that follows is reflective of a Redmi Note 10 Pro Max review as far as the hardware is concerned.

The Note 10 Pro’s display delivers the right balance of performance and restraint. At nearly 6.7-inches from corner to corner, it’s a sizable screen that doesn’t come across as overlarge. The glass is set into a plastic sub-frame that is then set into the larger mid-frame of the phone. It makes for an extra millimeter of black bezel around the display. Redmi didn’t say what the screen-to-body ratio is, but there’s small bit of a forehead and chin. You’ll note the centered punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera. It’s small and innocuous.

About the phone’s configurations:

Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G
Adreno 618
64/128GB UFS 2.2 storage
The Remi Note 10 Pro doesn’t have the fastest horse in the Snapdragon stable, but it’s not running the slowest either. The Snapdragon 732G is a mid-range processor from Qualcomm that was first introduced to the market in August 2020. It’s an upgrade to the 730G that’s supposed to offer faster clock speeds and better GPU performance for an improved gaming experience.

Here it comes-the battery:

5020mAh battery
33W wired charging
33W charger in box
If there’s one feature the Redmi Note 10 Pro delivers in spades, it’s battery life. The 5020mAh power cell is more than a match for the Full HD display and Snapdragon 732G. With the phone at factory settings (Full HD at 60Hz), the phone pushed through one and a half days with ease despite under heavy duress from testing. I never found myself worried about running out of juice. If I used the phone sparingly, it sometimes lasted through nearly two full days.

To sum up:

Pros for Redmi Note 10 Pro include user-friendly design elements, such as stereo speakers, support for dual SIM cards and a memory card at the same time, as well as a headphone jack and the durable Gorilla Glass 5 display. The Redmi Note 10 Pro also scores well when it comes to the overall display quality and responsiveness. Likewise, battery life is good and the 33W charging is a step up over the Redmi Note 9 Pro.

Cons for the Redmi Note 10 Pro include the MIUI 12 user interface skin. The camera is plenty versatile and overall adequate, but for point-and-shooters, it can’t match the Pixel 4a. And while it manages everyday usability with ease, it doesn’t deliver scorching performance across the board.

All in all, Redmi Note 10 Pro indeed is a strong offering and a compelling choice for an upper-budget-tier smartphone.
