Redmi Note 10 Plus vs 7+3+2+5+4

Redmi Note 10 Pro's design has been quite different to its 7-series predecessors with a slight bump in height due to the inclusion of a vertical camera hole on each side. It has a slightly thicker shape by comparison and is therefore a bit heavier at 8.67 ounces, making it slightly taller than the 6.53-inch 5G flagship device. The display, however, looks similar to the other models.

The Redmi Note 10 Pro ships with Android 12 OS (for more details see below) and comes bundled with 32GB RAM and 256GB storage. While there is no microSD slot available on the laptop, only 128GB variant gets an expandable storage via MicroSD card slot. You can choose between two refresh rates - 90Hz or 144Hz.

Both model are IP68 rated (maximum depth rating of 5 metres at altitude over 30 minutes). On paper, they feel pretty much identical, as both have wireless charging and NFC support. There are two rear cameras housed inside a housing sticking out slightly to the top left and right of the screen, giving easy access to all essential features such as Google Assistant and Siri. And their performance is pretty comparable with no significant differences.

On the flip side, there is also a fingerprint scanner on the bottom of the Note 10 Pro which makes unlocking a breeze. A few extra safety and security features include reverse charge for power banks, voice lock when using them, and multiple biometric authentication, which is quite unique since most devices provide just one. We'll be talking about a few of these features later in detail. Another interesting feature is the LiDAR sensor used in the device which helps keep a check on your surroundings. Finally, it may not be as sleek at 6.9 inches as some competitors, but the battery is still capable enough.

As mentioned earlier, the 665-mAh battery is sufficient for the majority of use-cases. But if you want to get the full potential out of the smartphone, then the 4,700mAh battery is the ideal companion option. While it does run flat out for a while, you can always go back to using at least some basic tasks and will return to the old version when you need it back. With the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset, the 3nm chipsets are fast and consume less energy. These can get up to 35W with higher bandwidth. So if you'd like to enjoy peak performance for your workloads, you need at least 40W-50W. As usual, these numbers have been taken straight from official sources.



While speed is an absolute necessity in most tasks, we do believe that the Note 10 Pro performs well enough for most tasks. I was able to complete 11 Chrome tabs open in total (with Chrome Extensions added), and the single app load times were below 2 seconds. While I do often find myself running slower processes, such as gaming, this device is very responsive while dealing with heavy data transfer. Overall, this device feels fairly solid for everyday productivity. Our verdict? The Note 10 Pro definitely lives up to the hype, making it a great choice for those who like a simple interface but aren't too keen to spend a lot of time customizing it. The best part is that it can fit in my bag without breaking down. If you're looking for a powerful machine, I'd highly recommend this phone for you.

What You Should Expect From It

A 16:10 FHD+ IPS LCD panel with Corning Gorilla Glass for high contrast and wide viewing angles to take full advantage of this large display. The Note 10 Pro uses a dual LED flash light source for video calls and social media, which allows users to see clearly even in dimly lit areas, though I found that I could hear a small amount of static noise at times. This is something any user will struggle with initially, but with time, it becomes easier to ignore and focus on the task at hand. For instance, my Note 10 Pro will start charging immediately the moment I touch the charger in case I have started watching a web page in Safari.

The Note 10 Pro works seamlessly with accessories such as wired keyboards, mouse, headsets, and a pop-up keyboard. Its USB connectivity can easily connect your mobile to laptops up to 8K displays. It doesn't support Bluetooth and Wi-Fi like many others which isn't really a deal for me, given how many of us today work in public spaces.

Other Features

The Note 10 Pro runs Android 12 out-of-the-box and comes pre-installed with MIUI 12 based operating systems and apps with over-the-air updates. Additionally, the device supports three different memory configurations: 64GB, 512GB, and 1TB. At launch, there are four different colour options in our stores, Blue, Black, Green/Red, White.

The Note 10 Pro comes with a dedicated nano SIM with the capacity of 3300, 5500, 6500, 7500, and 9500. Coming to the internal storage, you can pick between either 64GB/256GB or 512GB, along with a microSD up to 256GB. It will come with up to 25GB of RAM and up to 128GB of LPDDR5 RAM. Both internal and external memory is expandable via SD card slot, though the internal one cannot be removed. You can get up to twice the memory and twice the storage space with the expansion slot, so the system and applications can stay updated even after long battery life drains.

The Display Output Options

The Note 10 Pro sports a 120Hz AMOLED screen with 20Hz touch response. Despite being a large display, this device does feel premium with HDR10+ support and an adaptive gamma curve. It's a bright screen with a punchy kickstand for content creators with sharp images and detailed textures. To play music or download your preferred application, you can connect headphones directly to the system using stereo speakers. However, there is no built-in speaker in place of the one located above the screen (which we can assume will be around the center of the device).

The Charging Ports

The first port on the Note 10 Pro is a USB Type-C connection for charging both the device and its accessories. Other ports include HDMI, USB-C for audio output, V5.0 and V4.0 for communication and microphone, 3.5mm for pairing, LAN, and a Nano-SIM slot. Lastly, Bluetooth offers the connection to the smartphones’ hardware and software through an OTA-related code.

Battery Life

Coming to the processor, the 2.4GHz Cortex-A55, Octa-core CPU makes sure everything is done smoothly without bottlenecks and glitches. Not sure which apps use a decent chunk of RAM? Or what you've been running lately? Well chances are the Redmi Note 10 Pro can keep up even during intensive usage. That is thanks to its efficient GPU and speedy processors. Even though it struggles with slow loading speeds, it makes a great addition to any gadget lover’s box.

The Camera Setup

The main camera unit on the Note 10 Pro works just as it should. Pretty good quality pictures despite only having 720p resolution, but unfortunately, it is not as dynamic as the top-of-line flagship devices with 1,080p video. Either way, I was glad to experience the Full HD 1080p with HDR video support. Along with being an extremely useful tool for photo editing and capturing videos, you can utilise this with Zoom, Panorama mode, Time Lapse, etc.

For video calling, you can utilise the standard VoIP features offered on both desktop and iOS devices. But the standard VoIP support is rather limited. Apart from Skype for Business, Apple has a support package but it does not offer regular voice quality.

The Performance Factor

The overall performance and performance is excellent considering the cost. Since the primary purpose here is entertainment, I’d say this device would outperform other similarly priced devices like Xiaomi Mi 10T, OnePlus X Series and Samsung Galaxy S20. All the aforementioned devices have decent specs, apart from the fact that one of them has a bigger battery than the remaining of the list. Also, they are loaded with popular tech-heavy titles and will definitely do a better job keeping all users happy. My guess would be that this particular product will be capable of handling that kind of consumption without slowing things down, despite the poor graphics and low-light sensitivity.

At our price range, we expect a decent performance from both the upper mid-range models and the lower ones. For our purposes, the Note 10 Pro and the cheaper offerings from Xiaomi remain close to perfect. Still, don't hesitate to invest in a handset that you can own, especially when it comes to performance and battery. Keep your eyes peeled for the latest news about anything related to the Redmi Note 10 Pro, the Xiaomi Company, MIUI and Xiaomi devices, or any other company. Stay tuned!
