The Redmi Note 10 is a budget smartphone that one would call an all-rounder since it does well at covering at the bases of what a good budget smartphone under 15K should offer. The phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 chipset, a mildly-upgraded version of the Snapdragon 675 SoC. It brings other lucrative features in the sub 15K price segment such as a Super AMOLED display, a 48MP primary lens, a large 5,000mAh battery, and an elegant design. The screen’s resolution is Full HD+ and it is 6.43-inches in size. You also get an 8MP ultra-wide camera which some phone manufacturers tend to skip at this price point.

The large 5,000mAh battery is powered by a 33W fast charger included in the box.
