The ultimate 2021 Review of Xiaomi Mi Note 10
The Xiaomi Mi Note 10 is not a very recent model, having been launched at the beginning of 2019.
The overall quality of this smartphone is good; since the price is in line with that of the competitors, it is a good choice, but there are cheaper models at the same quality level.
The Xiaomi Mi Note 10 arrived on the market with Android 9. In the meantime it has received updates and Android 10 is now available. Although a new version of Android has just been released, this version is still fairly recent.
The 6.5″ screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2280 pixels looks better than that of other models and is also very quick to react to commands.
One of the strengths of Xiaomi Mi Note 10 is its good battery life: in our usage scenario, its 5260 mAh allow it to reach 37 hours, which is above average.
The 113.3 GB of internal memory measured (the announced is 128 GB) are many, certainly enough to store our data.
One of the weak points is the fragility: in fact it has not exceeded the drop tests.
Models in this price range are usually powerful, and this phone is among the best: therefore, it can be used without problems even for tasks that require high performance, such as some video games.
Among the most interesting functions are: being dual SIM (two SIMs, two numbers, can work simultaneously) and the presence of the fingerprint reader.
This model is compatible with 4G connection.
Xiaomi Mi Note 10 has five rear cameras (the main one is 108 Mp) which allow you to get good quality photos in all light conditions, even in situations with little light.
This mobile phone has a 32 Mp front camera, which allows you to take pictures of just enough quality, so selfies are not exciting.
- The screen quality is excellent
- Battery life is good
- The photos taken with the rear camera are of good quality
- The version of the operating system is quite recent
- Its performances are above average
- One of the weaknesses is the fragility
