About the look of Xiaomi Redmi 10, we can also say that it looks as clean as possible from unnecessary elements. Almost the entire front panel is taken up by a screen. The device weighs just over 180 grams, making it comfortably light and suitable for younger users.

For more ruggedness, the manufacturer has provided Gorilla Glass 3 protective glass. While it is not the latest generation, it will protect the screen from scratches.

Underneath the beautiful exterior of the smartphone, which can be blue, gray or white, lies the Mediatek Helio G88 chipset. It is ample when playing simple games. The graphics is assigned to the Mali-G52 MC2.

Xiaomi Redmi 10 is available in three modifications according to the memory - 4/64, 4/128 and 6/128 GB. If you need more internal storage, you can use the separate memory card slot. This way, you can work with 2 SIMs and additional memory without sacrificing convenience.


Modern smartphone users are often most excited about the photo capabilities of their prospective new device.  In the Xiaomi Redmi 10, we see a basic 50-megapixel module. The sensor is the Samsung ISOCEL JN1 and was unveiled in early summer`2021. Back then, the focus was on its compactness.

Xiaomi Redmi 10 also has three auxiliary modules. One camera measures the depth of the frame, another is a macro module, and the third is an ultra-wide angle.

The photo quality with the main camera, considering the price, is at a basic level. With more practice and using the different shooting modes you will get good results. By default the shots are slightly paler and colder. It is recommended to add saturation and brightness to them using an editor.

In insufficient light or at night, a special shooting mode is activated. It is adapted for static photos. Capturing objects in motion without them blurring will be difficult.

With Xiaomi Redmi 10, macro photos will be passable, especially if you provide enough light. The ultra-wide-angle module, which is 12 MP, offers acceptable quality. The software processes the photos and they become more vivid and bright. This makes the shots look more natural and pleasing.

As for the front camera of Xiaomi Redmi 10, it is typical for the budget price segment. You get a single 8-megapixel camera that can take expressive pictures. With it, videos are recorded in 1080 resolution at 30 frames per second.

The Chinese manufacturer has spared no expense on the charger. A 22.5W charger comes with the device. Since no superfast recharging procedure is provided, the battery charges from 0 to 100% in 2.5 hours. In half an hour you will have a new 30%.


Xiaomi Redmi 10 is an example of an actual budget device in 2021. It has a number of positive qualities. Among them are a beautiful look, quality workmanship, a screen with a refresh rate of 90 Hz, a powerful processor for this class of smartphones, a good main camera - 50 MP, and a large battery capacity - 5000 mAh.
