Xiaomi Note 10 Review Unboxing:
No substantial changes to the packaging of this Xiaomi Mi Note 10 review . The device arrives accompanied by:
- 30W wall power supply;
- Transparent silicone cover;
- Pinto extract the SIM;
- USB cable – USB Type-C.
Design and build quality:
Like all devices in the series, Xiaomi Note 10 also offers a different perspective – mainly given by curved edges – and noteworthy build quality. More precisely we find a feeling of general compactness given mainly by the weight – 208 grams – and by small dimensions ( 157.8 x 74.2 x 9.7 mm ) for a 6.47-inch display. In this sense, you will have to adapt to the “weight” of the device for the first time.
The superior quality of the materials used partly justifies the weight. In fact, we found a double-layered Gorilla Glass 5 on both the front and back with an aluminum frame strewn across it. As mentioned earlier, all inserts add weight while adding appearance and getting premium smartphone feedback.
Despite its weight of 208 grams, the slim design and aspect ratio of keeping the device at 19.5: 9 are not a problem. Setting aside the sheer constructiveness of the moment, you will be able to appreciate the design and aesthetics of the device, thanks to the full-screen display (87.8% of the screen to body ratio) and the curved edges, will provide a particularly immersive experience. Also, in all the variants offered, it blends elegance with novelty and fun, so you won’t get bored with your chosen color easily.
Xiaomi Note 10 tip on an AMOLED Full HD from 6:47 “ with curved edges. On the panel-perfect in nature-no special questions or complaints, we have to spend some time on the curvature of the display.
In fact, it will satisfy most people (our number one) from a purely aesthetic point of view, and from the point of view, it will cause trouble for your daily use. Your most common problem, especially when using a device with a cover, will be related to the use of full-screen gestures. Due to the bending, I had to repeat the unread action many times. At the same time, the hue sometimes “distorts” near the curve. However, over time, you will find that these types of problems are becoming fewer and fewer, and this is a detail that should not be underestimated.
Overcoming these deadlocks, you will find yourself in front of the display screen (recurring in the opening), which is especially immersive and fascinating, with bright colors, but never overwhelming. In this sense, MIUI 11 helps us like other OSes, and it increasingly uses AMOLED panels with different temporary settings.
In addition, Xiaomi Note 10 also implements some of the most popular features of the moment, such as the ID sensor under the display has been significantly improved compared to previous models, and the possibility of setting Always On Display is given by the AMOLED panel.
Software: Xiaomi Note 10 review
Note 10 will arrive with MIUI 11 based on Android 9.0 and updated to October security patches. As we often repeat, Xiaomi’s operating system is more than just the graphic design of Android. With so many custom settings available, you will actually get a unique user experience on your device.
Among the distinctive features of MIUI, we certainly find the drive towards the now all-embracing use of devices with AMOLED displays and with an aspect ratio of 19: 9. This intention materializes in the possibility on one hand of being able to access the settings with “Dark” mode by enhancing the AMOLED display and on the other in the now consolidated use of full-screen gestures.
After some time, then, the company has “solved” the problems linked to the notifications in the upper left: now you can view 5 different icons. As always then the MIUI is particularly careful to save energy, you can in fact customize the settings in this sense, managing the consumption of certain applications.
Hardware and performance: Xiaomi Note 10 review
As mentioned at the beginning, the device alternately records certain high-end device functions. The hardware sector in charge of dealing with the services of Mi Note 10 falls precisely into the second definition. Onboard the smartphone we find the Snapdragon 730G, Octa-Core solution ( 2 × 2.2 GHz Kryo 470 Gold & 6 × 1.8 GHz Kryo 470 Silver ) at 8 nm, accompanied by the Adreno 618 GPU, 128 GB of storage (UFS 2.1 memories) and 6 GB of RAM.
Despite the absence of a top-of-the-range SoC, you will not have the slightest problem in using this Xiaomi Note 10 review , partly also thanks to the use of the Snap 730G, a chipset produced in key performance. So, from a multitasking and gaming perspective, fundamentally, smartphone manufacturers are paying more and more attention to the device, so the device is definitely not enviable.
As a result, smartphones are particularly well-suited to “bearing” heavy loads, and it does not cause trouble in terms of performance, battery, excessive consumption and temperature even under stress.

Camera: Xiaomi Note 10 review
In the field of cameras, such a device has been arguing even before its introduction. Xiaomi Mi Note 10 is equipped with 5 cameras on the back and comes with a selfie stick. For your convenience, before continuing to introduce you to the photography industry, we will list its features.
- Main 108 mega-pixel f / 1.7 with PDAF, Laser AF and OIS;
- 12 mega-pixel f / 2.0 tele lens with Dual Pixel PDAF, Laser AF, and 2x optical zoom;
- 5 mega-pixel f / 2.0 with PDAF, Laser AF, OIS and 5x optical zoom;
- 20 mega-pixel f /2.0 Laser AF wide angle;
- 2 mega-pixel f /2.4 macro;
- Selfie Cam 32 mega-pixel f / 2.0.
As you know, the company’s focus on (rather than a bit) the field of photography is sometimes surprising. From this perspective, we have found a particularly balanced device: Xiaomi Mi Note 10 has passed a “test photo” with a perfect score, which can be used reliably in almost any type of lens.
According to light
Regardless of whether shooting under optimal lighting conditions or in low ambient lighting at night, the device will still return to noteworthy shooting. As you can see from the image below, in fact, the image quality is still very high, and the image retains true colors and most details even in a closed environment.
In this sense you will be able to see how the shots were taken using the optical zoom have no particular noise and – at the same time – the use of the wide-angle lens does not distort the ends of the images. The same goes for the selfie cam that confirms the goodness shown by the main sector.
In terms of photography, it is commendable that the company’s efforts have maximized the efficiency of the department from the perspective of hardware and software optimization, making Xiaomi Mi Note 10 one of the best camera phones, although it is better than the competitors are much cheaper. In addition, the device also offers the possibility to record video at 2160p @ 30fps, with a maximum recordable of 720p @ 960fps.
Audio and connectivity:
Xiaomi Mi Note 10 does not miss anything and this – certainly – is an advantage. We find in fact the presence of the IR sensor placed at the top, accompanied by a 3.5 mm jack, USB Type-C input, FM Radio, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0 (aptX HD), Wi-Fi Dual Band and the sensor compartment composed of accelerometer, gyroscope, proximity sensor, compass and GPS (Glonass, Galileo, BDS, A-GPS).
From an audio perspective, we also found a satisfying user experience. In addition to using the Bluetooth headset without any problems in signal reproduction and quality, listening, in this case, is also pleasing, clear and well-balanced.
Xiaomi Note 10 review Battery:
One of the great trade-offs of this device is the weight by virtue of a 5260 mAh battery. Contrary to what we expected, however, Battery is not among the strengths of this device. Despite the fact that Xiaomi Mi Note 10 arrives in the evening without any problem, in fact, a gigantic battery does not correspond to an equally important Battery.
That being said, some numbers will clarify the device’s performance in terms of batteries. Through normal use, which is characterized by the use of different applications in push notifications, and sporadic game sessions in Wi-Fi and in mobile and web browsing, Xiaomi Mi Note 10 manages to reach and exceed the 5 hour display time.
A result that will undoubtedly take you until the end of the day, while disregarding our expectations in terms of overall Battery. At the same time, thanks to 30W fast charge support you will be able to recharge the 5260 mAh in just under an hour.
Xiaomi Mi Note 10 – Conclusions:
Certainly, the renewed Note series by Xiaomi has not left us indifferent. The brand once again offers high-quality equipment at “smart” prices (though there are some flaws). In fact, the Xiaomi Note 10 costs less than $445 USD, thanks to coupons from the most famous Chinese stores, including Aurora Green, Glacier White, and Midnight Black.
At a modest price, you will be able to-therefore, giving your smartphone some interesting details, such as a 108-megapixel camera and a sophisticated design, which is the highest privilege (usually) in the series. A device we recommend to anyone looking for an effective and balanced smartphone.
