Xiaomi Mi Note 10: A Compelling Device

Considering the specs and the price it is hard to believe that Xiaomi Mi Note 10 has come up with so many good features. Experts are saying that it's a solid offering for the price. However it does have a few flaws you must know about.


Design and display quality

Let's start with the good stuff. The Xiaomi Mi Note 10 looks and feels well constructed. The phone feels solid in the hand, and its glass surfaces blend seamlessly with the metal frame. The only disturbing bit is the humongous array of cameras sticking out, but slapping the free silicone case bundled with the phone makes it look much less distracting.

The Mi Note 10 pro doesn't have fancy features like wireless charging or an IP rating for water resistance, but it does offer a headphone jack and an IR blaster for controlling appliances like TVs and air conditioners.


Other features 

The software, based on Android 9 Pie, is quick and responsive. There is a mid-range Snapdragon 730G chip inside the device, paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

Xiaomi's custom interface comes with helpful features like a screen recorder, a virus scanner for the apps you install, and a gaming mode which can hide all notifications and record your gameplay.

But certain peculiarities are more confusing than useful. For example, there are two web browsers for some reason, and a placebo app pops up from time to time to "optimize" the phone by clearing app cache and RAM.
