Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G Review: Biggest Performance Upgrade Ever


Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G also brings several upgrades, greatly improving its overall strength. Like the flagship 67W flash charge, it only takes 45 minutes to charge the 5000mAh battery, and it takes less than an hour to charge and play. It is no suspense to call it the king of fast charging at 2000 yuan.

The external sound quality is now also one of the selling points of the Redmi series of mobile phones. Redmi Note 10 Pro also continues the previous stereo dual-amp audio configuration and has passed the JBL audio certification. It also cooperates with Dolby for deep tuning, bringing a shocking experience to both games and audiovisual.

Last year, Redmi Note 9 was popular with a few excellent LCD screens at the time. This year’s Redmi Note 10 Pro also continues this tradition, bringing a top LCD screen to everyone.

It has a high refresh rate of up to 120Hz and supports 6-speed variable speed adjustment, which can adapt to various scenes, bring smooth pictures, and save power. More importantly, the color of this screen is also greatly improved, supporting the DCI-P3 color gamut display, which can provide more vivid colors. LCD’s inherent advantages of no flicker and more delicate RGB arrangement definitely represent the top performance in mobile phone LCD screens.

Although it is a pity that there is no 100MP rear camera, the performance of the Redmi Note 10 Pro with 64 million pixels is not disappointing due to the improved ISP performance of the Dimensity 1100. It can be extremely excellent in both day and night scenes. The filming rate is high, the picture is pure, and it has a good tolerance performance. The wide-angle + macro sub-camera is quite satisfactory and can meet the needs of more scenes.

Ancestral infrared, NFC 3.0 with better compatibility, side fingerprint recognition, and other standard equipment. It is worth mentioning that the X-axis linear motor that Redmi Note 10 Pro is equipped with is also exceptionally well-tuned. As we all know, the X linear motor is large in size but how the manufacturer presets the vibration shape and adapts it to different scenarios is more important. The vibration response of the Redmi Note 10 Pro is fast, and the vibration feels clean and neat. It is no exaggeration to say that Redmi Note 10 Pro may be the best vibration adjustment among the new Redmi machines in recent days.

In addition, this release is also released with the Redmi Note 10 Standard Edition, which is positioned as a 5Gentry, equipped with Dimensity 700, 90Hz 4-speed adaptive LCD screen, 5000mAh battery, and 18W fast charge. The price is only 1099 yuan, which is also a good choice for users pursuing the ultimate price-performance ratio.

In this evaluation, we will focus on the Redmi Note 10 Pro with the most interesting parameters. Next, let’s see how Redmi Note 10 Pro, the biggest performance upgrade in history, performs.

Design & Appearance

The front styling of the Redmi Note 10 Pro hasn’t changed much. The center-mounted digging hole is the best solution for the current full screen that considers beauty, practicality, and selfie effects. Because of the LCD screen, the chin can not be narrowed to the limit, but it has achieved the best level of the hard screen.This time’s back shape is exceptional, using a stereo grating process similar to the Mi 11 signature version, giving the surface a unique 3D stereo texture. Although it is not a glass back cover, due to the improvement brought by the new injection molding process, the surface texture is more compact than the traditional back cover, the transparency is also higher, and it has a glass-like texture.

However, the new 3D stereoscopic back cover will only be used on the two-color schemes of Moon Soul and Fantasy Blue. If you want a more traditional look, choose star sand with a solid black as the main color.

The backup close-up, the design ID also continues the style of this year’s K series; the main camera has a unique silver surround decoration. The main camera of the Redmi Note 10 Pro is 64 Megapixels. Below are 8 Megapixel wide-angle lenses and 2 Megapixel macro lenses, which can meet the practical needs of most daily scenes.

Both the upper and lower speakers have independent openings to ensure excellent external sound quality. In addition to the microphone, you can see the ancestral infrared remote control at the top, and there is only the Type-C interface at the bottom, and it is a pity that you do not see the 3.5mm audio interface.

Redmi Note 10 Pro uses a fingerprint recognition scheme with side fingerprints. The new generation of fingerprint recognition modules can be perfectly integrated into the power button, and the frame does not need to be widened. Later, the fingerprint power button will also unlock the quick start function with two taps. The SIM card slot is on the other side and supports two SIM cards insertion.

The standard 67W charger is compact, compatible with 15W charging, and can output up to 67W flash charging.

Hardware & Performance

The Dimensity 1100 equipped with Redmi Note 10 Pro this time can be described as an out-and-out flagship chip. Compared with last year’s most cost-effective flagship chip Dimensity 1000+, the process has been upgraded from TSMC 7nm to TSMC 6nm, and the large core architecture has also been upgraded from 4×A77 to 4×A78. The overall energy efficiency ratio and performance will be improved.

Although the performance has not been significantly improved, the storage support of Dimensity 1100 and ISP have been upgraded. For example, it supports the latest UFS 3.1 storage, which can take photos with larger pixels, and the computing power has been enhanced. In general, it is 2021—the year’s Dimensity 1000+ improved models.

Compared with the Snapdragon 750G used in the previous generation, the Dimensity 1100 is much more advanced. Let’s take a look at the Redmi Note 10 Pro performance from the theoretical performance test.

Theoretical performance test
1. Master Lu

In the performance test of Master Lu, Redmi Note 10 Pro scored as high as 808513 points. More than 77% of other mobile phone users have already entered the flagship queue without any suspense and interacted closely with many flagship phones released in recent years.

2. Androbench

Redmi Note 10 Pro is equipped with UFS 3.1 flash memory, with a continuous read speed of 1745.84 MB/s and a continuous write speed of 1216.54 MB/s. Since the encryption algorithm of the Snapdragon platform will limit the continuous write speed tested, the results of the Dimensity and Orion platforms under the same flash memory will be greater, and the experience will not be much different.


Use Geekbench 5 to run the score to see how the Dimensity 1100 CPU has improved. Redmi Note 10 Pro has a single-core performance score of 762 points and a multi-core performance score of 2896 points. For reference, the previous generation of Snapdragon 750G single-core only has 658 points and multi-core only 1977 points, which is a 16% increase in single-core performance. , Multi-core performance is increased by 46%, and the performance improvement is huge.

4. GFXbench

Compared with the Snapdragon 750G, the performance of the Dimensity 1100 GPU is more than doubled. In the past, the Note series can only barely guarantee the smooth running of the game, but the current Redmi Note 10 Pro is definitely capable of high-frame mainstream games without pressure.

Game measurement

The Peaceful Elite

“Peace Elite” has not yet adopted the high refresh rate mode for Redmi Note 10 Pro, so we chose the smooth image quality and 60 frame mode for testing. The game has only one freeze during the whole game, and it runs stably at full frames at other times.

Ace Warrior

“Ace Warrior” is adapted to the high frame rate mode, which can stabilize 120 FPS during the game.

The original god

“Yuan Shen” was tested according to the established route. Under the highest image quality, it is difficult for Redmi Note 10 Pro to stabilize 60 frames, with an average frame rate of 52.9 FPS throughout the entire process. However, there is no problem with the stability of 30 FPS throughout the process.


Redmi Note 10 Pro is equipped with a 1080P LCD screen. For enthusiasts, the LCD screen has no flicker and is well known for its more delicate advantages. Everyone chooses LCD screens because they feel that it is more eye-friendly. The display effect is excellent, so there is no need to entangle the differences in various pixel arrangements.

Based on the inherent advantages of the LCD screen, the LCD screen of the Redmi Note 10 Pro also has outstanding features, such as a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz, and supports 30Hz | 48Hz | 50Hz | 60Hz | 90Hz | 120Hz 6 levels Adaptive adjustment, the color gamut of the screen is also very good, support DCI-P3 color, can bring gorgeous display effect to the LCD screen.

Adaptive adjustment of refresh rate

In addition to the common 120Hz and 60Hz switching, Redmi Note 10 Pro will also adjust the refresh rate of 6 gears adaptively during daily use. For example, system animations such as multitasking will be displayed in 90 frames. When the same screen remains stationary for a long time, the system will automatically reduce the refresh rate to 50Hz to save power. And 30Hz and 48Hz appear more in video scenes, corresponding to two common video frame rates of 30 frames per second and 24 frames per second, respectively.

Screen brightness

In daily use, the maximum brightness of the screen is 400nit. Using strong light to illuminate the screen, the excitation brightness can be measured as 483.93nit. Generally speaking, the excitation brightness of the LCD screen can reach about 600 nits, but we are limited by the intensity of the light source in our hands. We can only measure the excitation brightness of 480 nits.

Screen color test

Redmi Note 10 Pro provides three color schemes in the system: adaptive, vivid, and standard. We also tested the color gamut and color accuracy of each mode.

Vivid mode

Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G uses a DCI-P3 color gamut by default in vivid mode, and the color gamut coverage can reach 93%. In the past, the DCI-P3 color gamut coverage of LCD screens can only reach about 85%. This time, Redmi Note 10 Pro has a lot of improvement in screen color.

In terms of color standard, the average color standard is 0.37, and the maximum is only 1.29, which is very good. Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G can ensure that each color can be accurately restored, and the human eye will not see obvious differences.

Standard mode

The standard mode is the sRGB color mode. The screen’s color gamut will be limited to the sRGB color space, covering up to 96.7%. The color gamut volume is only 104.9%, ensuring that the colors will not exceed the sRGB color gamut too much and appear oversaturated. Case. In addition, the color accuracy is not bad, with an average value of 0.38 and a maximum value of 1.93. No obvious color difference will be seen in daily use.

Adaptive mode

The adaptive mode is a combination of the bright mode and the standard mode. Most of the interfaces will use the bright mode and switch to the standard mode display when browsing network pictures and videos.

From the test results, the performance of the DCI-P3 mode usually used is almost the same as that of the vivid mode. The color gamut coverage is 93%, and the color accuracy of 0.44 is excellent.


Although the quality of the 64-megapixel main camera is definitely not better than the previous generation of 100MP rear cameras that support 9-in-1 pixels, thanks to the improved performance of the Dimensity 1100 ISP, the actual camera performance of the Redmi Note 10 Pro is not inferior. At the level of the mid-range model, the filming rate is much higher than that of the Dimensity 1000+ model.


The enhancement of ISP performance can increase the filming speed and make the algorithm more powerful, perform more stack processing, and achieve better colors and latitude. Redmi Note 10 Pro’s film is more vivid, and when encountering high-light scenes, it can also make good use of the HDR algorithm to handle the brightness of the bright and dark parts.

The night photography of the Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G is also astounding. The color and noise elimination are different from the previous Dimensity series, the overall picture is much cleaner, and the brightness is also improved. With 64MP high pixels, it can even take pictures in night scene mode with 2x digital zoom.

However, due to the lack of optical image stabilization, the sharpness is slightly lower when shooting long exposures at night. Of course, the optical image stabilization of the main camera at this price is a luxury in itself, and the performance of the Redmi Note 10 Pro is already quite satisfactory.

Both the macro lens and the wide-angle lens have low pixels, so although the thumbnails look good, they cannot withstand zooming in. For a mobile phone at this price, the secondary camera outside the main camera can only play a supplementary role. The wide-angle lens and macro lens are sufficient to meet the needs of users in special situations.

Sixth, battery life and charging: the flagship 67W flash charge while playing and charging takes less than one hour

Endurance testUse Bilibili to play 1080P high bit rate video online for 1 hour and 05 minutes, the power consumption is 12%, and the average discharge current is 588mA. Although Redmi Note 10 Pro is equipped with a large 5000mAh battery, the average power is not low, and the battery life is basically in line with the mainstream performance.


Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G supports 67W charging. When the screen is on, the 5000mAh battery can be fully charged in only 55 minutes. When the screen is fast charging, the charging time can be shortened to 42 minutes.

The previous generation of Redmi Note 9 Pro is a bit like a partial student, pursuing the ultimate rear camera performance in the thousand-yuan Xiaojingang gear. Still, it ignores the performance, which is really against the consistent style of Redmi. Redmi Note 10 Pro is back on track and a step-by-step performance in terms of performance. The flagship Dimensity 1100 processor has a 67W flagship flash charger, top LCD screen, X-axis linear motor, and NFC3.0. With blessing, King Kong has taken a big step towards the flagship, and it can be said to be even more perfect.

Dimensity 1100 is more than the best. It may be the tail end of the new flagship processor launched this year, but there is still no pressure to hit a group of 7-series mid-range processors. Compared with the Snapdragon 750G used in the previous generation, the performance of the Redmi Note 10 Pro has improved like a takeoff, starting directly at 50%, and the fluency of the system is far more than before. The experience of this generation of Xiaojingang will be greatly different.

The top LCD screen of the Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G is also worth cherishing. The LCD screen itself is sporadic in the new machine this year, and the Redmi Note 10 Pro is equipped with a top-level LCD screen. 120Hz supports 6-speed adaptive refresh rate adjustment, with a 95% DCI-P3 color gamut LCD screen, brighter colors, high refresh rate, and adaptive refresh rate to improve performance. If you are a big fan of LCD screens, then Redmi Note 10 Pro is definitely not to be missed.

With a combination of 67W charging + 5000mAh large battery, the former can quickly recharge the battery, and the latter can ensure longer battery life in heavy application scenarios such as games. The LCD screen may not be as power-saving as OLED, but the fast charging and large battery of the Redmi Note 10 Pro can make up for this part of the extra power consumption.

Finally, I want to praise the vibration of the Redmi Note 10 Pro. Its X-axis vibration motor is almost the best among several new models of Redmi this year. I personally feel that vibration feedback is the best. Not as strong as possible, but to present a precise sense of vibration through vibration. The clean vibration feedback and the vibration shape that can be clearly distinguished in various situations are the meaning of the linear motor.

The Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G price is only 1499 yuan, and the performance is greatly improved, with better fast charging, better vibration feel, a new generation of NFC 3.0, and a better LCD screen. The improvement in hardware configuration is huge; absolutely, a Non-simple increase in quantity without price increase can be generalized. This generation of King Kong is still cost-effective and more perfect. It is definitely the best choice for LCD screen enthusiasts and performance parties.

The Redmi Note 10 Standard Edition price is more affordable, and it can be started at just RMB 1,099. If you value cost performance rather than pursue better parameters, it will also be a worthy choice for the 5Gentry.
