Over the past year, the smartphone market has been revitalized with wonderful specimens. In November 2019, the whole world saw the sensational phone with a 108MP camera – the Xiaomi Mi Note 10. The Mi Note 10 and its camera was a wonderful debut for the company, and as a result, Xiaomi has given the green light for a new trend in the world of camera structure. But we should understand that this breakthrough was meaningful. As the saying goes: a quantitative result is not as important as a qualitative one. Our task is to figure it out.
Before buying a fresh and hot product, it is natural that we pay attention to the specifications of the model first. Xiaomi Mi Note 10, in terms of specs, doesn’t differ much from Xiaomi Mi CC9 PRO inasmuch as they have almost identical features, but there are still some differences, although not big ones. Except for tech specs, there is also a beautiful appearance which could earn a lot of fans.
The design is not new, but it does really impress with its beauty and elegance. The display is a 6.47-inch, curved, AMOLED with extended 1080p resolution. The body is made of an aluminum frame with installed Gorilla Glass 5. Corning, the company that developed this glass, showed in an experiment in laboratory conditions that Gorilla Glass 5 “survives” even if it falls from a height of 1.6 meters. Impressive, although it doesn’t justify the fact that Mi Note 10 is not waterproof. Most of all, I liked how neat and reflective the glass looks. However, the body is not the most interesting thing, let’s move further.
The sweetest and the most attractive element! The main camera should be proud of itself. It has as many as 108MP, which gives an improved image, with pronounced detailing of objects in the picture. But, unfortunately, it is very difficult physically to evaluate this camera; if you want to do this you need to display an image on a 5×2 screen (random size, but the screen should be very big).
We shouldn’t talk only about the main camera, since it’s a five-camera set. The next two cameras are 5MP and 12MP zoom snappers. They are responsible for optical magnification, the first one for 2x and the second for 5x. The Ultrawide camera, as Apple provided the trend of this year, also finds its place in this model and has 20MP. Of course, don’t forget about the 2MP macro. With these impressive cameras you take as many photos as you want, how you want, when you want, and where you want. The core motive is desire 🙂
The Darkside – Hardware
The internals of this model are not the best, but not the worst either. It might seem very strange that Xiaomi decided to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G for their hot flagship device. For those who like to play on the phone keep reading, it is not the worst option on the market. The reason for this awkward decision was the Mi Note 10 battery. The power pack impresses with its capacity – as much as 5,260 mAh. The combination of these features provides wonderful stamina for the smartphone. From a full charge the phone happily withstands 2 days of use. There is also a supercharge, but sadly there is no wireless charging, although I wouldn’t place so much attention on it.
High Time for wrapping up
There is a new flagship phone Xiaomi Mi Note 10, what will we do? Buy it or leave it? My answer will be positive. Yes, the issues with the hardware marks it down, plus the model’s memory capacity is only 128GB, without the possibility of enlargement with the help of micro SD, and this is a minus, because this penta-set offers the temptation to take pictures day and night. But in general, the device is not very bad, and it is well worth ts $500 for EU and $600 for the US price tag.
