You know those phones that look like glass but when you tap them, you realise they’re probably plastic? That’s the Redmi Note 10 Pro.
A sleek design with a high-gloss back rounds off into curved sides and a relatively flat top and bottom. The phone has a stepped camera bump which houses its four sensors, while up front is a big, 6.67in AMOLED DotDisplay. It’s attractive, if unremarkable.
Design highlights include a fingerprint scanner/power button combo which is curved to match the side of the phone. It feels slick to use and the general in-hand feel is great. The Note 10 Pro is weighty, without being Mi 11 Ultra levels of cumbersome – and its still curvy enough to not be clunky.
The screen is a Full HD panel that’s sharp at 395 pixels-per-inch and pops brilliantly thanks to AMOLED tech. A peak brightness of 1200 nits means the display shines nice and bright, but what really edges it ahead of the similarly priced competition is its silky smooth 120Hz refresh rate –outperforming £400+ 90Hz phones like the OnePlus Nord 2.
Whether you’re streaming videos or gaming on the Redmi Note 10 Pro, the viewing experience is virtually indistinguishable from many phones double its price. When you add stereo audio to the mix (plus a headphone port), losing yourself in a Disney Plus or Netflix series is a very real risk.
