Redmi Note 10

Announced last March 4, 2021, the new Redmi Note 10 quickly arrives in the Philippines with a starting price of only PHP 8,490. At that price, the new smartphone is looking to be one of the best value smartphones to arrive in early 2021.

The Redmi Note 10 features a rear camera set-up of a 48MP f/1.79 main camera, 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide camera, 2MP depth sensor, and 2MP macro camera with LED flash and 'ultra premium' branding.

Running the show is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 SoC, 4GB/8GB RAM, UFS 2.2, and 5,000mAh battery with 33W fast charging.

The included camera app features the following modes: Photo, Video, Pro, Portrait, Night, Short Video, Slow Motion, Documents, 48MP mode, Time-lapse, and Panorama.

The Pro mode allows for controls of ISO (100-3200), Shutter Speed (1/4000 to 30 secs), EV (+-4), White Balance, and Lens change.

The rear camera can record up to 4K 30fps and 1080p 60fps with image stabilization while the selfie camera can record up to 1080 30fps without image stabilization.

Let's dive in!

All three cameras are able to produce images with vibrant color and good contrast but only the 1x and ultra-wide cameras were able to produce naturally sharp images. The 1x camera produced highly dense and detailed images while the 2x camera's daylight image is noticeably oversharpened and flat (less micro-contrast).

In indoor situations, the images are the same as in the daylight images wherein all three cameras produce vibrant colored images with good contrast. However, the 2x telephoto image is noticeably oversharpened and somewhat flat (lack of micro-contrast).

When using all three cameras for close-up shots, we can see that the 1x and 2x cameras produce sharp images with pleasing bokeh and with pleasing focus fall-off. The in-focus areas are sharp while the out of focus areas are creamy. All three cameras also produce vibrant images as well.

Out of the box, the main camera and the ultra-wide camera were able to produce images that we normally would be found in more expensive phones. Our only gripe is that the 2x telephoto's images are underwhelming compared to the other two rear cameras.

In front is a single 13MP f/2.45 front-facing camera that is placed on the punch hole on the display. The new camera app features Photo, Video, and Portrait.

The camera is able to record up to 1080 30fps without stabilization with the selfie camera.

The selfie camera on the other hand is able to produce a decently sharp image with acceptable color accuracy. The selfie camera seems to oversaturate colors like Neil's skin tone and maroon shirt. Otherwise, the images produced have good contrast and the field of view is wide enough to include a significant chunk of the background inside the frame.

Out of the box, the selfie camera looks decent for the price. There are better-performing selfie cameras in the price range but this far from bad.

Quick thoughts

So far, the Redmi Note 10's cameras are able to produce images of mixed results. The rear 1x and ultra-wide cameras are able to produce images that are as good as a lot of more expensive cameras while the 2x telephoto is underwhelming. The selfie camera on the other hand is above average but could probably be improved even further with software.

We are excited to try the Redmi Note 10's cameras in more situations so stay tuned for our full review that will come soon!
