As a series, the Redmi Note has always stood for value, offering more features than its Redmi predecessor yet remaining affordable for most people. When compared with other budget models, you’ll find the screen to be large, the battery to be plentiful, and the processor to be powerful, giving these models a bit of aspirational appeal. Earlier this year, Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 10 series, and the top-end Redmi Note 10 Pro Max features a 108-megapixel camera. The Redmi Note 10 Pro Max has just this one distinct difference from the Redmi Note 10 Pro, but are these differences sensible for mainstream phones? The answer will be revealed soon.
Redmi Note 10 Pro Max Overview:
Redmi Note 10 Pro Max design
This generation of Xiaomi phones represents a slight shift in design. The small design touches that the company collectively refers to as the ‘Evol’ design language can be seen mainly on the Redmi Note 10’s frame and camera modules. There aren’t many differences on the front, which is almost all screen with narrow borders and an embedded front camera that’s relatively small and embedded right at the top. A very sleek silver ring surrounds this camera for some reason, which is quite distracting, and making the hole smaller is something that seems counterproductive.
There is a fingerprint sensor embedded in the power button on the side, but it’s not recessed and it’s also not any larger than a standard button. Located just above it are the volume rockers, which cause the phone’s frame to expand in thickness. This bulge is molded into the glass rear panel to create a slick appearance.
The backs of the Mystic Bronze and Glacial Blue colour options are frosted, while the Dark Night option is glossy. Both finishes had some fingerprint issues, and I was able to examine both finishes. There were also a few scuffs on the frosted glass, but not so bad to cause concern.
An exceptional 108-megapixel camera is surrounded by a bright silver panel on the back. Two tiers are present in the module to accommodate the thick camera and allow the two low-resolution cameras to be next to each other. Unfortunately, this means the phone isn’t very steady or easy to use when it’s lying flat on a table.
A Corning Gorilla Glass 5 screen protector is pre-applied to the front, with Xiaomi using Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It has a 3.5mm audio jack, but it’s located in an unusual place on the top of the device. In addition, you’ll find a speaker cutout; the earpiece functions as a second speaker for better sound transmission. Also included is an infrared emitter for controlling appliances. It has a USB Type-C port and a primary speaker on the bottom. Two Nano-SIM slots and a microSD slot can be found in the tray on the left.
Redmi Note 10 Pro Max performance
Redmi Note 10 Pro Max’s display is one of the many things that makes it stand out. Its Super AMOLED screen is bright and crisp, with a sleek appearance. There is good contrast between the blacks and the colours, and the colour scheme pops nicely. If you’d like, you can override the colour temperature manually. There are three colour profiles to choose from. Video in HDR looks very good. Refresh rates are not adaptive, and are set to 60Hz by default.
The shiny ring around the front camera is the only thing that detracts from the video experience. As it stands, the always-on display actually does not always remain on. You have to tap the screen to turn it on, and it doesn’t stay on for more than a few seconds, so it is essentially the same as your lock screen. A stereo system is nice, but the sound is not very detailed or rich, and the bass has a distinct lack.
Despite its size, the fingerprint sensor works quite well, but it is also very easy to hit unintentionally. In addition, you can set up a shortcut to perform an action or launch an app with a double-tap. However, you might want to slip on the included case to improve grip, since the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max has a large screen. Miui 12.5 is expected to ship soon, and I’m hoping that the GetApps and Themes apps do not send promotional notifications.
With everyday apps, you won’t have any problems. Even heavy multitasking wasn’t an issue with the 6GB of RAM in my review model. AnTuTu gave me a score of 2,71,830 points, and Geekbench 5 gave me 563 and 1,703 points in its single- and multi-threaded tests. The Sling Shot Extreme test scored 2,734 points, while 3DMark Wild Life scored 1,118 points. According to GFXBench, the T-Rex and Car Chase scenes ran at 82fps and 17fps, respectively. Heavy games such as Call of Duty Mobile and Asphalt 9: Legends ran smoothly, but after a few minutes the back gets a bit warm.
A 5020mAh battery can last you for a whole day, with a little bit left over for the next day. In spite of playing games, streaming media, taking photos, and taking videos a lot, one charge should last a full day. A 17-hour, 1-minute test of the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max’s battery life showed how long it can last when watching a HD video loop. In 30 minutes, it went from zero to 44 percent and in 60 minutes, it went from zero to 84 percent when the charger is plugged in.
Redmi Note 10 Pro Max cameras
The main attraction of the camera is the 108-megapixel sensor. Based on the same Samsung HM2 sensor as the Mi 10 i’s main camera, but with different optics, such as an f/1.9 aperture and 6P lens. For an effective resolution of 12 megapixels, this camera combines nine 0.7um pixels into one 2.1um pixel by default – though you can change this.
It is interesting, though, that the camera boasts a 5-megapixel macro mode, as well as two-times magnification. As a result, you should be able to take macro shots from further away than usual. A standard 8-megapixel wide-angle camera and a 2-megapixel depth sensor complement the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max.
The Camera app has quite a bit to offer, including some modes that the Redmi Note 10 doesn’t have. With Vlog mode, you can combine graphics, background music, and even effects into a single clip by tapping the shutter button a few times. The clone and dual modes, as their names suggest, let you create multi exposure shots and superimpose videos from the front and rear cameras, respectively. Additional modes include Document, Panorama, Timelapse, and AI Watermark.
The app has some odd features, such as the fact that you have to open the Settings submenu to access the macro camera. In addition, you’ll find a Tilt Shift filter here, which might have been considered another separate mode. You can choose how many pictures you want to take at what interval, as well as frame and object tracking options. There could be some improvements to the user interface, in particular the way that labels are cut off. In addition, Xiaomi has decided not to impose a tasteless and obtrusive branded watermark on users anymore.
