I know there’s a lot of models out there, but this one for the price point that it is currently selling for around about 160 euros does actually offer a lot. So we have a 60 hertz amoled screen with a brightness up to 700 nits. The helio g95 is powering this one. My particular model here has six gigabytes of ram at 64, gigabytes of ufs, 2.2 storage, 5, 000 milliamp hour battery 64 megapixel main camera. It has an ultra wide and a front 13 megapixel camera for the price. It’S actually got a lot on offer here. So in this in depth, review i’ll go over what i missed out from the unboxing video as well as some camera samples battery life charge tone. Will also be covered in this video, the build quality for the price. It is all plastic gorilla, glass, three on the front of it, and it is plastic frame all around the sides. We have a sim tray which will take two nano sims and a micro sd card. You don’t have to give up on one of the nano sims, which is great for that micro sd card down the bottom. Here we do have a type c port loudspeaker microphone. 3.5 millimeter with very good audio quality up the top they’ve given us again, another ir transmitter and this more budget orientated phone secondary mic and the second speaker there too. So dual speakers, which is really quite good to see on a phone at this price point i’ll, take that certainly – and here we have our main 64 megapixel camera to two megapixels – which i really wish they’d stop this trend of adding these basically sticker cameras, because that’s Really what they are, they don’t really add too much so one for depth, one for macro, 8, megapixel ultra wide and the aperture on this one.
The main camera is f 1.8, it does say here ultra premium. I don’t know why they need to put that on there. They could have just put 64 megapixel. If 1.8, i think, would have been a little bit better. Read me marking there and then the ce that they need to put on there for the global version by laura. Of course, the chinese models will not have this text in that part they’re about the non recyclable battery, so fingerprint reader. This it does work quite good on the side, so it’s capacitive always on you simply just tap it and it unlocks and the speed is not the fastest out there, but the accuracy does tend to be quite good. Now. I have noticed that now we’re running here with miui 12.5, that the gestures triggering them has been very, very good. Everything has been very fast and fluid, and apparently they have one thread dedicated to the gestures now with miui 12.5, and this is why it has improved things and i’ve noticed this compared to same ui 12, that it does actually seem to be a little bit better. Now the general ui performance 60 hertz, of course, with this phone. If you want the 90 hertz, but in ips screen, then you get the note 10 5g that’s covered in that first video that i posted and with our notifications everything’s showing up there and all up the wrong performance, i think, is average.
Occasionally. I do see a few little frame dips with this one here now the haptics does feel reasonably good on this model. It is actually better than the note. 10 5g i’ve noticed more of a strong vibration that one is very, very weak here, so different, haptics motor in the 10s model. Now this rom does have a bit of a bug, even though it’s miui, 12.5 it’s, the latest now global version. Here, what happens? Is the phone doesn’t want to wake from a deep sleep? I have to press the power button various times to get it to wake up, we’ll see if it happens now, because i’ve intentionally left the phone for one hour. So i press the power and the fingerprint unlocking button see how nothing happened. I am pressing that right in there we go. It has finally woken up now, so it does take a while there and hopefully xiaomi can address this bug, which is probably the only bug so far that i have encountered. So when you get the phone you will find. There are quite a few bloatware applications on here, so just go into settings and apps and uninstall, and i removed some 22 different applications about 2.2 gigabytes worth of what i consider to be junk that they have pre installed into this model here. So, with the 64 gigabyte version here occupied when you first boot it up is 18.4 gigabytes. You don’t have a lot of free space to play with, but it does, of course, have the micro sd card support, so the security patch level is from march, and i am on the latest version here at the time of making this video, there was a patch That came later on after i took the screenshot, so it doesn’t look like it’s the latest, but i am on it and it didn’t fix.
Sadly that little bug i pointed out. So this is the battery life it’s, not bad at all. For a 5 000 milliamp hour battery you’re, looking at around about a realistically on screen, timer general standard kind of use, light use of around nine to ten hours, and this result here of 13 hours is a fixed looping test. With the display calibrated to 200 nits, which is not a bad score, although i think a qualcomm, the snapdragon 732g would probably get around a 15 hour mark or 14 hours do a little bit better. I find them to be slightly more efficient than the helio g95. We have in this particular model now just ignore this red bar here about the battery health that’s, because this application doesn’t detect the faster charging so with the 33 watt supply charger in the box and using the stock cable. Of course, you have to use them together to get the exact result here. It did take 86 minutes, so that is one hour and 26 minutes to go from six percent to 100. Now it sat at 99 for about nine minutes, and i don’t know why that was but hey i’ll just give you the final result, so it could actually be a little bit faster than this. I don’t know why it was stuck at 99. Just had a little bit of trouble there, detecting things so widevine security level, one that is present so that’s great to see and camera two api support is level three.
So look later on for gcam ports. If you wanted to improve on the camera quality uh with this one right here now the wireless speeds you can expect out of this, it maxes out about 180 megabits per second and right now, where i am away from the router it’s got to go through a Very solid wall about 100, it sometimes dips down below 100. Even though my signal strength here is almost maximum, i found the wireless speed to be well expected really for the price tag of this phone and gps. I wanted to do a live gps test for you right here, which i don’t normally do. I normally take a screenshot, so this one accuracy gets down to one meter currently i’m indoors. Obviously, here filming and it’s, two meters, which is pretty good there, we go even one meter of accuracy and the signal strength. The average here, which is really the most important i have found to be normally in the green 30s there and it will see quite a few satellites, so the gps performance forget about the old mediatek gps, which was absolutely terrible, it’s a lot better now and getting Accuracies that are better than the qualcomm chips and as i posted in the first video, which is the unboxing of this one, the n22 score. So this antutu score for the helio g95 is pretty much what i expected – and these are the ufs 2.2 internal storage speeds.
So there’s been a 64 gigabyte model. These speeds will be lower than the 128 gigabyte version, so with this 6.4 inch amoled screen, we do have a very good peak brightness this one peaks at for me with my measurements at 700 nits. So it is very bright. You can make it out in daylight, and the touch response is excellent. Now this panel also does have dc dimming now having dc dimming in a phone at this price is very, very good, considering that even some of the samsung flagships do not have dc dimming and they’re, costing three four five even times more than this phone here without Dc dimming seems crazy, so the whites are uniform. There are no dimmer pixels around where the cutout is for our front 13 megapixel camera around the edges either there’s a very good screen. It is yes only the 60 hertz now, if you want a 120hz panel and a panel that is just as good even better. In fact, then, i would go for the redmi 10 pro that has a really nice flagship grade screen in it, but this one is still excellent for the price point. So your typical options in here you get you’ve got your color scheme, which you can adjust everything. So you change the saturation, the white balance, color temperature great having all of these options and this the anti flicker mode. I will turn that off the dc dimming and you will probably notice now when i turn it off that the screen did change a little bit there so regular.
And if i turn down the brightness, which at the moment is about 200 nits, you see now the banding coming through and if i flick it on that, banding will stop. So that is why it’s so great to have this option on a phone at this price. Point is amazing, really, i think this phone has very good audio fill the price point of it. So we’ve got fm radio 3.5 millimeter out support with good quality, nice and clean there’s, no static, there’s, no annoying hiss or white noise, or anything like that. And then this dual speakers, so i have noticed that the top speaker is a good 30 quieter than the bottom loudspeaker. That has a lot more noise coming out of it and overall for dual loudspeakers. I think they’re, okay, they’re, not the best out there. They’Ve got a little hint of bass but here’s a sample of them at 100, Music Applause onto a gaming performance now to test out. How does that helio g95 handle popular titles here like pubg, so this pubg is loading up right now and it does. Let me set this smooth and extreme frame rate option, so check on the performance frame rate is looking very good, it’s, nice and smooth, and you can swipe here from the left, to bring up their game turbo and you can see the frame rate is a constant 60 frames per second, which is what we want here, so that means it’s supporting the maximum refresh rate, and it does feel very, very smooth, well someone’s, shooting at me already.
That is clearly a bot because they’re just doing burst shots, and i should be dead by now, anyway. Okay, so really good performance. Looking down the scope here, that is still a very, very smooth 60 frames per second continuously with pump g here and a demanding title, which is gen. Chin impact is playable. Now i have it set to the lowest possible settings and 60 frames per second, but, as i swipe here, you’ll see that really it only does about 34s. The maximum i’ve really seen so it’s a little choppy and leggy at times casting spells. You will see a few frame dips, additional frame dudes there with that. So at least the game is playable it’s, just you’re not going to be able to get. You know the best absolute performance. I recommend a flagship phone for this game, so what i’ll do now is play for one hour, a bit of jenshin impact, some pubg and we’ll see just how warm the phone is going to get okay. So, looking at our temperatures, we are getting up to 46 degrees after one hour of gaming here on the front and on the rear. There is a hot patch just around where the camera module is, which is near the chipset, and that is 43 degrees, so 46. Max after one hour of gaming, isn’t too bad moving over to our cameras now, so this is the front facing camera here, which you can shoot at 1080p.
Maximum 30 frames per. Second, it has electronic image stabilization, which is good to see. Now the crop is quite close, so this is my hand now fully extended out. So it is pretty close here and, as i walk ahead, you can see the stabilization is doing a good job and overall i do like this quality. I don’t think it’s bad at all, considering the price of the phone – and i wouldn’t expect to have 4k that we should have with the flagships which we don’t actually have with the flagships, with xiaomi, so overall good front facing camera quality i’ll swap over to the Rear cameras. Now this is a video sample here now, 4k 30 frames per second – and you see, as i walk ahead, that yes, it does shake around, and that is because it doesn’t look to have any electronic image stabilization with 4k only 1080p, only 1080p 30 as well. That supports it now the focus has been good. I haven’t really noticed too much of a problem at all with the 64 megapixel sensor, and i do hope they can add the electronic image stabilization with this, but it might not happen. They probably want you to get the note 10 pro. Instead, if you want the 4k with the electronic image stabilization, so a bit of wind noise coming through it’s, not that windy here, but i have noticed that these microphones are a little bit susceptible to that. And i can apply a little bit of digital zoom, so let’s look down the coast here, uh, where i often sometimes film there’s that little tower right there in the background and if i pull right back, i can’t swap over to the ultra wide.
So you can’t do that on the go. Unfortunately, this is a video now with the ultrawide camera electronic image. Stabilization looks pretty good to me a little bit of wind noise coming through on those microphones, and i just walk ahead to test how steady this 1080p footage is so no 4k, with the ultra wide just 1080p footage with this Music. So i found out in the first unboxing video i did post of this phone with the 5g version. So the note 10 5g is an inferior phone and i would definitely get the 10s over this one right here, so this model has a lot going for it. I know the market is flooded and they’re flooding the market with their own model, xiaomi almost competing with themselves. However, it’s got a lot going for it with the screen: the 700 nets amoled; okay, yes, it’s only 60 hertz. We have the helio g95, which can play pubg at 60 frames per second, a solid 60 frames per second. So if you game a lot and you game a lot of pub g, this phone, the performance is quite good. Now we’ll get up to the 46 degrees that i showed you. That was after one hour, which probably some of you are thinking thinking. How can 46 be good well considering i’m, seeing a lot of phones getting up to 50 degrees celsius 46 after one hour, wasn’t too bad? Yes, it has a complete plastic whole build we’ve got the gorilla glass 3.
In the front. We have fm radio dual nano sim micro, sd card support, 64 megapixel main camera does take an okay photo. I mean the portraits will were fine there if you want to see a little bit more on the photos. I did a comparison with this one here too. The note 10 5g now i would like to see from xiaomi the bug fix, of course, with the sleep problem this it really does not want to wake up it’s like you’re, trying to wake someone up in their bed, that’s taking too many sleeping pills or something You’Re there, like shaking them, come on it’s the phone’s, the same you’re gon na press that power button about three or four times before it then finally wants to wake up that’s when you leave it for like 30 minutes or one hour, it goes into a deep Sleep – and it just really has a lot of trouble to wake up there. So that’s one bug, the other, i think, is not a bug. I just think that they’re probably never going to add it is 4k. Okay, 4k video doesn’t have any electronic image stabilization, so it is a terrible shaky mess but good to see electronic image stabilization with the front 1080p and then the rear 1080p, but no 1080p 60 with stabilization it’s a shaky mess again there too. So all up for the price of about 160 euro euros. You can’t, really complain on what is on offer here.
It’S got a good build quality. This screen and everything else, so good value for money. Definitely you cannot deny that, but if you i can spend a little more, i do recommend going for the redmi note 10 pro. So the note 10 pro has a much better main camera. It is the 108 megapixel hem 2, which takes excellent photos and much better low light low light, and this one is very disappointing. 4K electronic image, stabilized video. If you take a lot of 4k video, then that’s the one to go for, and it also does have a much better screen and slightly better build quality. The screen on the note 10 pro is 120 hertz it’s an amoled as well, and it can even go over a thousand nits it’s very, very bright, and this one does pick up towards getting up to about say, 900 and in the room here. Under these studio conditions, i was measuring around 700 net, so it’s a very bright, but only 60 hertz amoled in this. So thank you so much for watching my review here. Of the redmi note. 10 s do check out the first video i posted, which is the unboxing of this, where i covered the charger: the build quality dimensions and weight and a bit of a comparison to the 10.
