Stay with us to know the pros and cons of the Xiaomi Redmi 10.
Xiaomi Redmi 10 Full Review
The Redmi 10's new design is similar to that of Xiaomi's most successful innovation, Redmi Note 10 series. But it has its unique features to put a unique mark. The Redmi 10 measures 162 x 75.5 x 8.9mm and weighs about 181 g. It makes the phone more slick and pleasant to use. The front of the phone is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
The power button, which is integrated with a fingerprint sensor, is placed on the right side of the phone beside the volume rocker. It is easily accessible to users. On the bottom, there is a USB-C connector. Users will also get the necessary sensors included. The Redmi 10 comes in three distinct colors- Carbon Gray, Pebble White, and Sea Blue.
A 3.5mm audio port and microSD cards are the two handy items that general users would miss. A camera hump on the device's rear houses some massive lenses. The hump also contains a display with certain smartwatch functions.
The Xiaomi Redmi 10 features nearly the same screen as the Redmi standard. It is a 6.5-inches LCD display. It comes with an average resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. Having a 90Hz refresh rate, along with 405 PPI density and a usual 20:9 ratio, the display doesn't fall far from the market standard for a low-budget smartphone.
The display presented in the Redmi 10 is only a bit better version used in the Redmi 9. The brightness level is efficient in an indoor environment. To see something in bright daylight, users have to raise the level.
For the most part, there is nothing new when it's come to Redmi 10 display. But still, the color grading and display quality will give a better experience than most other Chinese breed handsets. Video and game lovers who want a great visual within a reasonable budget may find the phone suitable.
