Xiaomi's Redmi Note series has offered the ideal price-performance ratio over the past few years, and this situation has been repeated this year (despite the confusing entries) for the Note 10 collection. Redmi Note 10 Pro is one of the most attractive phones in this series, which was introduced in March 2021 along with three other models, namely Note 10, Note 10S and Note 10 5G. The Redmi Note 10 Pro was introduced in the Indian market under the name of Note 10 Pro Max, except for one difference, the absence of NFC in the Indian version, no other differences can be seen between them. Despite not supporting 5G, the Note 10 Pro has attracted a lot of buyers thanks to its advanced OLED display and 108-megapixel main camera.
We will discuss the relationship with this phone and its strengths and weaknesses, but first of all, it is better to get a little more familiar with this phone and its specifications first. The Redmi Note 10 Pro is an interesting mid-range phone that, while its Snapdragon 732G processor (in the presence of more advanced processing solutions offered for this category) does not look great, but in almost all other parts (at least on paper) Appears at the level of the best in the market. The screen of the device is a 6.67-inch AMOLED model with a resolution of 1080 2400 pixels, which offers a contrast of 4,500,000: 1 and its maximum brightness reaches 700 nits (1,200nits in dot mode); Although this panel is not 10-bit (and in this category it is not expected to be 10-bit), it has a refresh rate of 120 Hz and the touch removal speed in it reaches 240 Hz. Despite being OLED, the fingerprint sensor screen is located on the side of the phone.
The phone has a Snapdragon 732G processor with 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of expandable UFS 2.2 internal storage (via dedicated microSD slot). The battery capacity of this model is 5,020mAh and its fast wired charger is 33 watts. Other features of this phone include IP53 (resistance to gentle water splash), headphone jack, stereo speakers, infrared port, dual-band Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 5.1.
With this relative familiarity with the Redmi Note 10 Pro, it's time to review the opinions of various sites about this phone. GSMArena
Review of GSMArena, which was originally written for the Max version but for the same reason The presence of these two models can also be generalized to the Pro version. This phone has undoubtedly been mentioned as one of the hottest offers this year, and it is difficult to find a similar model for it. By including a 120Hz OLED display on this phone, Xiaomi has finally put an end to the difficult dilemma of choosing between 60Hz OLED or 120Hz LCD displays, making it easier for users to access the best possible choice.>
Strengths and weaknesses of the Redmi Note 10 Pro from the GSMArena point of view include: High charging speed Very good stereo speakers Reliable performance without overheating Good photo and video quality of all cameras in daylight MIUI 12 on Android 11 Infrared port - 3.5mm headset jack - FM radio - Memory card port - NFC (in Pro and not Pro versions) Max) The presence of a higher-end chipset could have been more exciting. Speaking of quality in daylight; Where a lot of detail can be seen even on hard subjects like tree foliage and the dynamic range of the images, while far from the best, is excellent and acceptable. Low noise and close contrast and natural colors of the image are other positive points mentioned about the performance of the Note 10 Pro main camera in daylight. The only downside mentioned in this section is the slight sharpening of some parts of the image, which is taken by taking a photo with a full resolution of 108 megapixels and then resizing it to 12 megapixels. According to GSMArena, the 108-megapixel photos of this phone are not great and are affected by image artifacts with small details. According to the GSMArena, the 8-megapixel ultraviolet camera is also very high quality in daylight, and the high detail (of course, in terms of the resolution of this camera), smooth corners, accurate colors, low noise (within its class) and dynamic range can be Accepts. The phone's 5-megapixel macro camera thanks to autofocus allows you to shoot subjects from a distance of 3 to 10 cm and offers good detail and vibrant colors. This camera especially needs very good light to create acceptable images.
Lack of optical image stabilization has led to poor performance of the main camera at night; In this case, the camera uses very high ISO numbers (7,000 and above) and at the same time reduces the shutter speed to low values (about 8.1 seconds). In this case, although in ideal conditions brighter photos with better colors can be taken, hand shaking may completely affect the final result. Night mode on this camera takes about 2 seconds, resulting in less noise and a little more detail. The effect of hand shaking in this case is less despite the 2-second harvest time, according to GSMArena! Night mode is not available for the ultraviolet camera, and we are faced with dark and noisy images, which, of course, still have good detail and acceptable colors.
The main camera shoots at a maximum resolution of 4K/30fps, and macro and ultraviolet cameras can capture 1080p/30fps video. 1080p/60fps resolution is also available for the main camera only. The camera's digital image stabilization is only available at 1080p/30fps for all cameras. GSMArena is satisfied with the high quality 4K videos of the main camera in daylight in providing high detail, low noise, smooth image and good performance in terms of sharpness, color quality and contrast, and in low light, despite the more noise, still good quality. It speaks to rivals. The 1080p images of the ultraviolet camera are also excellent and work well in terms of color detail, contrast and dynamic range. One downside to this is the low bitrate of the sound in all cases, which is only 96 kbps, and although it has virtually no major negative impact on the final result, it could have been even better for an intermediate. Techradar
In the repeated review of the Redmi Note 10 Pro, which is entitled "a top phone with a low price", this model is mentioned as one of the best Android phones, provided that 5G does not matter to you. Is; Where a great screen, fast performance, long battery life and a solid camera for less than $ 300 await you. The two main downsides of this phone are the lack of 5G, followed by the lack of 5G camera shake at a resolution higher than 1080p, and passing through these two points, the rest of the points related to the Redmi Note 10 Pro seem quite positive.
Points positive and negative Duplicate features include:
High-definition 120Hz stereo speakers Large and bold 5G Battery life No shaking mechanism for 4K videos
Duplicate of the phone's main camera images "The Redmi Note 10 Pro's images in standard mode, especially considering the price, are very pleasing in general," he says. The Pixel 4a handles HDR image contrast a little better, where we see some smoothing in image information in brighter areas and a bit of blur in medium tonnage areas. "But it [really] only applies to relatively complex subjects." Criticizing the camera's HM2 sensor, Takradar described it as one of Samsung's many other high-resolution sensors, but the end result is not as advanced and high-level as it looks on paper. Of course, the price range of this phone leaves no room for criticism and complaints. Takradar also praised the result of the main camera in night mode and spoke of more details appearing by activating this mode. Unlike GSMArena, Tekradar is not very happy with the result of the ultra-wide camera, which the media says benefits from the presence of the Sony IMX355 sensor, and considers it to be the least attractive among the device's cameras. Tekradar points to the lower level of detail and dynamic range of this camera compared to the main camera, and mentions the low level of software optimizations and the unavailability of night mode as other negative points for it.
The ultra-wide camera of the phone is said to have a Sony IMX471 sensor, which has the right hardware and more than enough resolution, but there is still room for improvement in terms of dynamic spectrum optimization. The media mentioned the good quality of 4K videos of the main camera, but the lack of image stabilization for this camera is a factor in making these images useful, for example, when walking. Android Authority
The Android Authority review once again emphasizes the high specs and low price of the device from the very beginning, and thanks to such things as a responsive display, powerful battery and all-round design as a fully justified choice for the price. Payment is mentioned. Of course, this media, while pointing to the intense competition in the middle of the market, has paid attention to the not-so-excellent processor of the device, and has added the inconsistencies and inhomogeneity of the software part of this model to its disadvantages.
The pros and cons of this phone from the point of view of Android Authority includes:
Versatile 120Hz Display Body Design Fast battery life Sturdy support for dual SIM and memory cards (simultaneously) Cost-effective cameras Heterogeneous performance Moderately weak sound "The main camera is good for a phone at this price point," Android Authority says of the quality of the phone's main camera. The basics of photography such as focus and lighting are generally good. If we do not consider other [negative] cases, this phone tends to have less light in some frames, which leads to a loss of detail. "Some of those details can be saved when editing a photo ... the colors are a bit muted in my eyes, especially when shooting outdoors."
"The Note 10 Pro's ultraviolet camera is usable, although it has its drawbacks. "Even with the distortion correction settings on, I noticed a little more of the lens' optical distortion [which] means that smooth lines appear as a slightly curved horizon." The author of this article then points out the presence of unwanted noise in more than one image of this camera, which, although still acceptable, is not extraordinary. The result obtained from the telemacro camera of this phone, according to the Android Authority, depends on the situation where if you have hands without vibration, you can take sharp photos with it, but the light is covered by the hands of users when taking photos with this camera and the point of the image and Loss of detail is what makes it difficult. Pocket-lint
Pocket-Lint's review of the Redmi Note 10 Pro, which bears the title of an unbreakable affordable phone, concludes: "... Redmi is becoming a It is a key disruptor in the low-cost handset market.

"There is more resolution here than in the near-rival Motorola handsets, the software is more stable than what we have seen in other MIUI 12s, and the 108-megapixel main camera is one of the most powerful units." On the less positive side, the media also mentioned the selfie punch camera, the lack of optical image stabilization and the protrusion of the rear cameras. At the end of the article, the Redmi Note 10 Pro is mentioned as the most complete and successful cost-effective phone that this media tested in 2021.

The downside of this camera is the lack of optical image stabilization, which makes it important to take pictures without shaking your hands. Pocket-Lint does not consider the night mode of this camera to be extraordinary either, and considers its final result in the absence of vibration, soft and with little detail. Notebook Check

Photos taken with a 108-megapixel sensor score for good dynamic range and attractive sharpness. Even in low light, the brightness of the photos is pleasant, but the sharpness decreases in the dark. "Although there is no dedicated telephoto lens, zoom shots with up to 5x magnification still seem quite appropriate." "The degree also provides excellent image quality, although photos taken with the [Redwood Note 10 Pro [Ultraviolet Camera] show imaging errors and prominent fringes on the sides. Both image detail and dynamics, as well as color reproduction, are satisfactory." CNET
CNET's review of the Redmi Note 10 Pro once again emphasizes an advanced low-cost experience, and the presence of a 33-watt charger in the box immediately after the title is also interesting.

120Hz OLED display with high resolution 108 megapixel camera Compared to the previous year, the feel and advanced appearance of the processor is sufficient for today. The battery life was high. The main camera is full of colors and glazes, especially in high-light environments, and low-light photos, according to the media, are valued for their remarkable price range. Due to the lack of a zoom camera in this phone, it is not possible to take detailed photos of distant subjects, and in practice, with a 2.5x zoom, the image quality begins to decline.
