The Redmi Note 10T is the latest line of Android-based smartphones from Redmi, a subsidiary of Xiaomi Inc. This new series was introduced in march 2021 worldwide and in India in October 2021. It competes with the existing Redmi Note 9 line of smartphones, which came in 2021. However, it has a few differences compared to the earlier models, the first generation of which was equipped with Android Kit Kat 4.4 and it is powered by the Exynomembrane technology. In this review, we’ll take a closer look at the features offered with the new handset.
Like most other high-end smartphones available on the Indian market, the Redmi Note 10T has built-in image editing software, though the software offered with the device is not that sophisticated, having only basic image editing features. The only feature that is advanced is the camera, where the phone facilitates dual cameras – one for general use and another one for low light situations. However, the camera software has some limitations; for instance, it does not support live panning and is limited to taking a still shot.
The front and back cameras of the red note 10t 5g are of high quality, though they are a bit large and protrude a little. This can be considered as an acceptable trade off, as the large camera is clearly visible. When it comes to video recording, the user has two choices – the front cam and the rear cam. Both have auto focus, though the former does a better job at it and is able to capture videos in higher resolution and clearer images.
Like many other handsets from the recent Redmi series, the red note 10t 5G offers an excellent screen and viewing quality, though it is slightly smaller than that of the iPhone mi note 10t 5g 5s. It features an 8.2-inch display, which are slightly bigger than that of the iPhone and the size of the screen affect the resolution of the photos displayed. However, even with a slightly smaller screen, the battery life of this smartphone is sufficient, and hence it is considered as a suitable replacement for the iPhone, especially for individuals who want high-end features at a cheaper price. The phone features an ionic air liquid touch screen, which is said to be responsive to touch and a nice alternative to capacitive touch screen that is present on the iPhone and many other similar smartphones.
The camera of the red note 10t 5G is also of high quality, with a clearer lens and reduced noise in the image capture process. Apart from that, the connectivity options on this smartphone are great, with a tri-band GSM base, Bluetooth, and Dual SIM. As far as the user interface of this handset is concerned, it follows the typical android design, with smooth icons and a navigation bar at the top, with white on white icons and text boxes below them. One major difference with this handset over the others in the same series is the lack of any USB port, which makes it unsuitable for use on the international carrier networks. On the other hand, the feature rich Android operating system runs on the device, which is evident from the heavy usage of the operating system by the developers. The device comes with Google Play app, and many other apps that are preinstalled, and it is capable of browsing the web via the browser, as well as viewing YouTube videos.
The camera of the red notes 10t 5G is quite impressive and comes with optical zoom, while the iPhone has it as an option as well. In fact, the red note 10t has a lens with 20x optical zoom, whereas the iPhone has a lens with only six.5-inch optical zoom. It comes with a self-cleaning auto-closing shutter and has an accurate focus, flash control, and image stabilization for taking photos of great quality. The battery life on this device is quite long, lasting up to twenty hours, though some users have reported life-time up to thirty hours. The camera, like most high-end mobiles, is not capable of recording videos directly, but the good news is that the phone can record videos in a similar way to the iPhone, using the feature known as video recording mode.
