Xiaomi recently presented the Redmi 10, a cheap mid-range with a very exceptional design, which also has some features that differentiate it from its competition, such as its 5,000 mAh battery. Although it does so at the expense of the 5G connectivity it lacks.
From my experience, I can tell you that it is a balanced and exciting mobile, still a cheap device, but it hides more than it seems.
A 90 Hz panel to which to devote many glances
It has a 6.5-inch LCD screen with Full HD+ resolution, with which you can consume multimedia content without any problem at a good solution. However, as you surely know, it is essential not only the resolution.

It is an exemplary screen, although its maximum brightness level can be improved when it is hit by direct sunlight. In addition, it is not AMOLED technology, so its colors are not as saturated and vivid, although they are somewhat more realistic. In this sense, it is already a matter of taste.
It has a refresh rate of 90 Hz, making everything look more fluid, both in the interface and in compatible games. It would help if you kept in mind that this uses a little more battery.
Muscle enough for basic games
The Redmi 10 performs decently when running apps, although differences with slightly more expensive devices are noticeable. Even so, it is not a device that becomes difficult to use daily.
As for its performance in video games, it has no problems running undemanding titles, but slight jerks can be seen from time to time.
It cannot be said that the Redmi 10 is the ideal terminal if you are looking for outstanding performance since there are times when the device has some difficulties in performing relatively routine tasks. However, these are things that can indeed be solved by employing software.
This mobile has an option to activate 1 GB of virtual RAM, which will take internal storage space to use to manage multitasking in times of great demand.
MIUI 12.5: a guarantee in terms of software
The Redmi 10 has MIUI 12.5, which is a guarantee in terms of performance and usability. In addition, it has many exciting extras, starting with the integrated remote control application that allows you to take advantage of your infrared device.

They highlight customization options such as the selection of the refresh rate, the color scheme, or the style of the lock screen. From the settings, you can modify a large number of aspects.
The same thing happens in the launcher, and if you access its settings, you can choose between having an application drawer or not, displaying the Google page on the left side of the launcher, or changing the size of the icons.

Finally, there is a privacy protection section from which Xiaomi allows you to inspect your applications’ permissions so that you can manage them.
In addition, at the battery level, it achieves excellent energy management, which means that its 5,000 mAh can last all day, and even approach two days of use.
Matte touch and polished finishes
Redmi 10 in hand
In the design section, the Redmi 10 is a device that surprises for good since it has matte-touch polycarbonate finishes. It sits particularly well in hand and is not smudged by fingerprints. It is one of those mobiles that you want to carry without a case.
On its back, you can find a rectangular module for the camera, which is, in turn, inside a black box that frames it. In this one, the 50-megapixel sensor is at the top, as is an inscription next to it.

On its right are the volume and the power buttons, which work as fingerprint readers. In its lower and upper parts, stereo speakers make the audio section very interesting for consuming multimedia content.
Redmi 10 USB Type C and speaker
It should be noted that it is a mobile phone with USB Type C and an infrared sensor that will allow you to control rotating devices such as television or air conditioning.
