The Redmi Note 10 5G has been out in the Philippines for quite some time, with the base 4GB/128GB model priced at P9,990 (around $198 converted) and the 8GB/128GB variant going for P11,490 ($228).
Besides the RAM difference, both versions share identical specs, including MediaTek’s Dimensity 700 5G, which is also present in the POCO M3 Pro 5G and Realme 8 5G. Xiaomi‘s affordable 5G phone also carries a triple-camera system around the back with dedicated lenses for macro and portrait photography.
Its selfie camera is rated at 8 megapixels, which is pretty decent for outdoor shots. It’s also equipped with a beefy 5,000mAh battery that supports 18-watt fast charging over USB-C. We’ve been using the Redmi Note 10 5G for more than a month now, and here’s what we have to say about it (complete with benchmarks and sample pictures, among others).
Overall, the Redmi Note 10 5G is an excellent device for those who want 5G data without sacrificing performance, display quality, and battery life. The 48-megapixel camera is good, too, and portraits look great in daylight. Night shots leave a bit to be desired, though, and the lack of an ultra-wide shooter is somewhat of a letdown but expected.
While the Redmi Note 10 5G isn’t the most affordable 5G handset around — at least at retail price — it’s definitely an excellent alternative to the POCO M3 Pro 5G if you’re not a fan of the latter’s high-gloss rear panel.
