  • Eye-catching design.
  • Good camera output from the primary camera.
  • Good display and great battery life.
  • CONS
  • Disappointing gaming performance.
  • Ultra wide camera has poor low light performance.


The Redmi Note 10 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 chipset, a mildly upgraded version of the SD675. This yields a gaming performance metric that lies well below the threshold of what competing devices have set. By itself too, playing games like CoD Mobile and Asphalt 9 saw a lot of janks and frame drops, despite the phone not getting warm. Where the phone does perform well is with respect to its primary camera, and even the macro camera if you can get the shot in focus. Users will love the display and the large battery too.
