Note 10, pro that’s, all under lock in key, but what i can do is take you on a full on tour of the hardware. The software show you exactly what to expect and i’ll be bringing you my full review very shortly and from all that it’s, the greatest tech. Please do poke, subscribe and ding that notifications bell cheers. So what you got in the box is one xiaomi. Redmi note 10. Pro the ever dependable condom case this time with a frosted finish, got a chunky: ass user guide, a proper beefy charging adapter and a bit of type c, usb shenanigans. So quite a generous little package, now let’s check out the phone now. This right here is the onyx gray model of the redmi note 10 pro, and i got ta say it looks very smart and stylish i’m definitely liking the camera array, even though it does form quite the bump. On the ascent of the redmi note, 10 pro there’s. Certainly a lot going on right now, i’ll be exploring the camera tech in a bit, but apparently it is both ultra and also premium and thankfully xiaomi has opted for minimal branding around the back end. They haven’t done a poco and going crazy slapping logos about their anything, just a dinky little redmi in the corner there, the xiaomi spec sheet, the only materials listed on the design, were gorilla glass 5, but i reckon that’s just the screen, because that back end certainly Feels like plastic to me: it’s definitely got a bit of flex to it, but yeah, but a gorilla glass, 5 action.
You got pre installed, screen protector on the redmi note 10 pro as well, and then that bundled condom case as well so yeah. If you’re the kind of handed constantly dropping their phone or whatever, then no worries and no official ip rating for water resistance on the redmi note, 10 pro, but that’s pretty standard once you get down the sort of budgeting end anyway, anyway, it looks like we’ve got Some juice in that battery already so get the the redmi note. 10 pro all set up and i’ll. Take you on a full on tour, the rest of the hardware in the software, oh and good news when you’re slapping your sim inside the redmi. Note 10 pro. As well, because you’ve got dual sim support and also a separate slot for your microsd memory cards, okay, then the redmi note 10 pro is all set up and ready for action, and what you get here is the latest freshest android, 11 os, but as usual with The xiaomi smartphone you get a nice bit of miui 12 slathered on top 12.01 to be precise and as any long term textbook viewers will know i’m really getting on with me. Ui in this latest incarnation, it’s got more of a stock android vibes you’ve got the likes of the google feed when you swipe this way. Uh you got your apps tray by default thank christ, but you do also have a few little bits of me.
Ui flair such as, for instance, the rejiggered recent apps menu, and i really like that new control center as well, which you can get to by swiping down the right side of the screen, like so it’s, 100 cribs from apple. This one, but it’s you know, makes a change because normally it’s them cribbing from android and if you dive on into the settings you’ll see that the redmi note 10 pro has all of those great miui features that we love very much, including the likes of the Video toolbox and the game turbo feature. The video toolbox is absolutely brilliant. You can drag this out on the screen whenever you’re running a supported, app the likes of youtube, you can record the screen screenshot and one of the best options. Is this one player video with the screen off now? This is bloody brilliant. If you’ve got like an audio book or a podcast, or something on youtube that you’re watching you want to just like go outside, you want to slip your phone in your pocket and continue listening. All you need to do is turn that feature on and if we turn up the volume you’ll see the video is still playing in the background and that game turbo feature is fantastic news for anyone who likes spattering strangers brains across a virtual wall in the likes Of call of duty and pubg, as you can see, it adds a variety of gaming related features and if you swipe out the little game, turbo menu as well you’ll see you’ve got access to plenty more features besides, including the ability to block your calls and notifications And all that good stuff, you can record uh your screen as you’re blasting people to bits you can open up various apps in a little mini display, uh just so.
For instance, if you’re trying to look up a walkthrough for whatever level you’re stuck in in a game, that’s pretty damn handy no and by the way i apologize for the state of my hands. I know that even worse than usual that’s, because i’ve been out in the god and ripping down ivy, i haven’t been in a fight or anything. Last time i was in a fight. I was like 14 years old and actually had hair still other features here. On the redmi note 10 pro include an edge mounted fingerprint sensor, something that’s massively back in fashion in 2021 and uh so far, just from uh preliminary testing. This seems all right, of course, now it’s not gon na. Do it is it there we go working, absolutely fine and the redmi note 10 pro also supports face recognition as well, which again seems to work really well. You’Ve got uh rears to wake support and, as you can see, the face recognition is nice and nippy and the redmi note 10 pro sports. All of the other features that you would hope for and expect in this kind of smartphone, including a bit of nfc action. Uh, which is great and that’s fully google pace certified, so you can use this for the contactless payments and, as you can see, they’ve got 128 gigs of storage on board a fair chunk of that already taken up with apps which were pre installed. Although i have chucked a few of my own on there now, but that is still my primary beef with xiaomi smartphones is the fact that you get so much crap lumped on here likes a tick tock and everything gets installed on there without you even wanting it Got sodden facebook, ebay, all kinds of shenanigans now one of the undoubted highlights of the redmi note 10 pro is that 6.
67 inch oled display it’s an amoled panel and i’ve swapped to a lighter background. Now so you can see that there’s actually pretty skinny bezels surrounding it, but it is a perfectly flat display as well, which is good news, obviously for gamers and the like. Now this is a full hd plus panel, which means nice crisp, fine detail when you’re checking out your photo collection when you’re just kicking back and saying it i’m, just going to watch a good bit of netflix bit disney, plus whatever a while away a merry afternoon, Because this is an oled panel, you get really deep blacks, which means nice, sharp contrast. You get really poppy colors as well, especially when you go into the display settings and bump the color scheme up to saturated those colors just slap you right in the ruddy chops. You got nice wide, viewing angles as well: another benefit of oled and the brightness levels as well. Super super bright on that top level, so you’ll have absolutely no worries. Seeing this thing, even on a really bright day, you dive on into the display settings. You’Ve also got the likes of the reason board uh, which makes things easy on the eye when it’s half to in the frickin morning, you’re still wide awake, despite the fact that your body is utterly exhausted, good old anxiety, can’t beat a bit of that, and one Of the other amazing things about the redmi note 10 pro is the fact that you’ve got a 120 hertz refresh for it and on an oled display.
That is uh. Definitely no main feat. Just look at those freaking iphones, which cost the best part of a grand. If not more and still only offer the bog standard, 60 hertz and because you’ve got that oled screen you’ve also got the benefit of an always on display feature as well as you can see there so overall, very stunning stuff. Indeed, let’s have a shifty at the audio smart here on the redmi note, 10 pro and xiaomi has shoved on a stereo speaker setup, so you don’t just get that bottom mounted speaker. You also get media pumping out of that top earpiece speaker as well. Let’S. Just try bumping up the volume, see what the performance is like launchers, or anything like that. This is as close as you’ll get to virgin stock android outside of a pixel smartphone, and that stereo output is really not bad at all. The ep speaker isn’t quite as powerful as the the bottom mounted speaker, as is off to the case, but it’s, not a tiny piece of crap either and on that top volume. Not super super loud and powerful, but it should be all right for just enjoying a bit of youtube, netflix whatever in a fairly busy noisy environment. But the super good news is: you do get a dedicated, headphone jack as you’re doing most budget blowers. These days you can plug in when you want to enjoy a bit of music. Otherwise you’ve got the usual bluetooth smarts and all that good stuff.
As well. Let’S move on to performance and the redmi note 10 pro is powered by qualcomm snapdragon 732 g chipset, backed by six gigs of ram that’s, the same platform that powers the poco x3 nfc, an absolutely fantastic budget, smartphone, definitely check it out if you’re looking for a New blower around that sort of 200 pound price point and the performance so far here on the redmi note 10 pro seems absolutely fine, a few little judders here and there as i’m zipping through android really fast, but overall the performance is solid. Unfortunately, xiaomi has put a block on geekbench uh from running, because this is pre release. It hasn’t even been launched yet in fact, but you can expect similar sort of performance to that poco x3, which scored pretty well in geekbench 569 for the single core and 1712. For the multi core, however, the snapdragon 732g does not support 5g. I know a lot of people still aren’t, really that bothered about 5g it’s, not particularly widespread in a lot of countries here in the uk it’s starting to roll out, though so, if 5g is something that you’d be interested in uh, certainly it should be coming to Most areas in the next couple of years here in blighty. Well, you might want to jump on board with the xiaomi mi 10 t light. Instead, on the battery front, you’ve got a 5 020 milliamp cell, stuffed inside the redmi note 10 pro that 20 milliamps obviously makes all the difference got the usual battery saver and ultra battery saver modes on board as well.
But i wouldn’t expect you’ll need to touch those very often and imagine that this smartphone should keep you going all day long, even if you’re making ample use of that camera doing lots of gaming streaming lots of media all the good stuff you’ve got support for 33 Watt fast charging here on the note 10 pro as well, which really ain’t too bad at the sort of budget to mid range price. Point no wireless charging, but you generally have to uh bump up your budget to that sort of upper mid range to get that kind of feature now, let’s finish off this unboxing of the redmi note: 10, pull with the squint of that quad lens, rear camera tech And what you have here is a 108 megapixel primary snapper, though of course it doesn’t take photos of that 108 megapixel resolution by default. You’Ll have to jump into the special ultra high res mode in order to take advantage of that got to see it, though. The processing speed is pretty nippy, even at that ultra high res mode, as you can see there very little uh hanging about waiting for that image to be fully realized. You’Ve got the usual set of camera features, including xiaomi’s, ai camera mode as well, which can just assess the subject on offer and suggest switching to a different camera mode whenever appropriate and that’ll also tweak the uh. The camera effects as well, based on what you’re actually shooting at any point, you could also swap to the ultra wide angle snapper as well, which, as you can see, just offers a pulled out view and so far the color reproduction.
Everything doesn’t seem to take too much of a hit when you’re using this one and there’s, also, as you can see a two time, zoom mode as well, but that’s not actually using optical zoom that’s, just a basic digital zoom, helped along by that high resolution main Camera now proper telephoto lens would be in ask too far, even for the redmi note, 10 pro. Instead, the final two lenses slapped here on the back or a depth sensor and, of course, one of those ruddy macro lenses. You can swap to the macro mode at any point, with a little tap of this little icon up here and, as you can see, super macro modes, it just allows you to get in super close to your subject: take a picture of those cold dead, sparkly eyes. You’Ve usually got to get the distance just right, otherwise, you’ll end up with a fuzzy shot and frankly, with the 108 megapixel primary sensor, just take a picture with that and then crop in and you’ve got plenty of other bonus. Camera modes on here as well, including good, old, reliable pro mode, which allows you to mess around with the white balance. The shutter speed iso levels, all that good stuff to get a very precise kind of result. And if you scroll on this way, you’ve got that portrait mode as well, using that depth sensor just to add a nice bokeh style effect behind your subject, just to help them really stand out.
You’Ve got various cinematic effects. You can add so let’s add a bit of rainbow action to mr monkey here. Oh my goodness that is truly dazzling. This one appears to be the acid filter and you can also change the severity of the bokeh style background effect as well, and then, if you flick along to more you’ve, got absolutely tons of other stuff i’m not going to go into everything, we’ve got the lights. The night mode, which will just help with those low light shots and, of course, plenty of video bits as well i’ll, be fully testing this out for my in depth. Review of the redmi note 10 pro anyway. As for the video well, when you’re using that primary sensor, as you can see, there defaults to 1080p at 30 frames per second, but you can bump that up to 60fps or stick it all the way up to ultra high definition, 4k at 30fps and you’ve got Some good features in there, including the track movement object, one which i find is really really good. This only works at full hd, unfortunately, but certainly on the me 11. It really did the job and you’re trying to shoot a hyperactive young child jumping about all over the place off their tits on sugar. You can pan in them and basically just make sure that they stay in focus even when they’re running towards you away from you all over the place and last up around the front of the redmi note.
10, pro we’ve got a 16 megapixel, a primary lens which, as you can see, has full hdr support those ai smarts, all the good stuff. You can once again shoot a portrait shot as well. Even though you don’t have a dedicated depth sensor, and that seems to work nicely indeed and that’s not actually too terrible itself, we certainly know by my standards, and you got a bit of 1080p video action. If you want to get your vlog on as well, and that right there in a nutshell, is xiaomi’s redmi, note 10 pro definitely looks like a seriously nice bit of kit, especially that gorgeous oled display, with its 120 hertz refresh rate there’s no 5g support here. Unlike the m10t light, but apart from that looks like a solid bit of hardware and some pretty slick software overall as well, depending obviously on your views on me. Ui stay tuned for a full in depth. Review of the redmi note 10 pro once i’ve actually used it as my personal smartphone for a good few days, gotten a feel for it. I’Ll be testing out the camera, the gaming chops, all that good stuff.
