In this review I will be going to make a simple yet compact information of the World’s first 108MP penta camera.  Let’s accept the fact that we can’t really be satisfied with small things.  Now introducing to you the first and largest Mega Pixel smartphone camera.

This smartphone is packed with  Penta Camera with 108MP in its front camera, and Mi Note 10 is quite identical to its competitor the Huawei P30 Pro the design the curve of the glass, it’s quite similar and identical but this phone has 6.47” curve AMOLED display.

Camera Details of Mi Note 10

5MP telephoto camera

The next part of the smartphone we have to tackle is its 5MP telephoto camera.  This is very excellent, very accurate and precise.  The 5MP camera is 10x powerful zoom telephoto camera that you can adjust even the furthest object you want to shoot and it’s perfectly clear. This is because of 4-axis OIS that let your eyes see from a distance.

12MP Portrait Camera

If you think you still experience the previous phone you have, that will no longer happened with Mi Note 10 why? This is because, this smartphone has optimal quality portrait mode with 50mm lens with dual PD that enhances your object for you to have an accurate focus, ultra bright 1.4μm accurate laser auto focus and soft light for capturing beauty even in dark surroundings making your shoot from dark to light mode.

20 MP Ultra-Wide-Angle Camera

The 20MP camera helps your shoot and discover the tiny world into a huge camera. And that is in your Mi Note 10 Pro. This smartphone also has 117 degrees ultra-clear, and ultra-wide angle camera just by one click, you can view its panoramic view of your desired object. Vlog mode & Night mode 2.0 New Vlog mode, anyone can direct their own life First Mi Phone that supports the new Night Mode 2.0 and features RAW-based multi frame composition, let you take pictures without worrying about the dark.

32MP Camera Your Unlimited Selfie Partner

If you love selfie, then this is the right smartphone for you.  This smartphone has ultra-high resolution that is responsible of recording all the details of the small object from your face such as hairtips, eyelashes and your facial details while the post editing feature still do its job as high quality as before.

Maybe you will wonder why there are some similar features and looks if you compare to other smartphone the Xiaomi Phones.  This is because Xiaome phones is a customized version of ANDROID called the MIUI.  But this is not completely similar to Huawei’s devices.  But when it come with its apps.  You can still have your applications downloaded from your Play store.  But be very observant, you will feel the difference if you come from other android smartphones.

Xiaomi has no apps tray.  It’s the same experience when you have your iPhones with you.  You can still install applications but, it will placed on your home screen the same like with iPhone, you can’t find your notifications on the top of your screen.  If you want to know and see if you have notification? You have to scroll down your screen to see if you have notification. Including your text notification its really different.

If you are used with your android smartphones, MIUI is a strange thing for you.  Since MIUI is not the bit interface in this days. Even me, I have a hard time adjusting gadgets from Android to IOS to MIUI, this is really a total discomfort in your part as new user of this phone. At least you will open up your mind if you really want to change your old Android, iPhone or shift to another smartphone.  Remember, everything can be learn. If you’re decided to invest in this new smartphone that is now circulating in the market today. That pretty cool.

What interest me with Xiaomi Note 10 is its RAM.  Although there are other smartphone that has of higher processor like Oppo Reno 2 that has 8GB RAM, there is a bit difference with both smartphones. Xiaomi Note 10 has Snapdragon 730G with 6GB RAM. Though this won’t overpower the latest smartphones like Mi 9T Pro and Realme X2 Pro. This is still the cheapest phone for me.

If you are a Gameboy or a business person like me which half of my life is on my phone making business, Mi Note 10 can go with you without disturbance. Perfectly great in watching videos, browsing web and taking photos, fantastic.  This is the phone that I can recommend you to buy one.

Big battery and fast charging

5260mah super capacity battery has a longer endurance, with a built-in 30W flash charge, which can quickly replenish the phone’s power

Nobody wants delays, everything today is instant.  Not anymore with smartphones right this time, it is because the engineers and researches won’t stop looking for a way to make thing become real and instant. With Xiaomi Note 10 this had the largest battery so far.  5260mAh ultra-high capacity battery for more than two days of usage, in-box 30W flash charge, fast power recharging, and 100% charged in the shortest time of 65 minutes.  5260mah super capacity battery has a longer endurance, with a built-in 30W flash charge, which can quickly replenish the phone’s power.

Final Judgement

I will not overfeed you with information.  You have also your own like to whether to buy Xiaomi Note 10. But with the price of about $495.00 this is very reasonable price yet the item that you can get is very powerful and can compare to other smartphone brands. You can never find 108MP camera with smartphone today in this price.  But you can buy a smartphone that has high power camera.  And that is Mi Note 10.

Although we can’t be satisfied with what we have today, but learning to be contented with what we poses is the best choice to do.  If you have any very good comment and very good experience with Mi Note 10, please write your comment below and I will be very happy to read it.  Thank you very much for the time you spent reading this Review.
