This phone has more powerful hardware than the Redmi 9 Prime, but it also costs more. Even though it does a lot better than its predecessor, the cameras aren\’t as good as they should be. You will enjoy the screen\’s quick refresh rate and battery capacity of 6,000mAh, which are both good for casual users. If you start with a price of Rs. 12,499, this phone will have to compete with the Realme 8s, which has better specs on paper. It costs a little more than the Redmi 10S and the Redmi 10T 5G.But, the Redmi 10 Prime is about the same price as both of them, which have better hardware.

Xiaomi Redmi 10 Prime Camera
On the Redmi 10 Prime, there are two macro cameras and two depth sensors. The main camera has 50 megapixels, and the other three have 8, 2 and 2 megapixels respectively. The main camera has 50 megapixels, the ultra-wide angle camera has 8 megapixels, and the depth sensor has 2 megapixels. The software for the camera on the phone is almost the same as the software we\’ve seen on other Xiaomi phones.
A Pro mode lets you control all of the camera\’s settings. You can quickly switch between HDR and AI, and there is a mode called \”Pro.\”Most of the images we took with our Redmi 10 Prime were taken when it was cloudy. Photos taken during the day turned out to be okay, with just enough clarity. The edges of these were too sharp, and we personally didn\’t like them at all. The outside edges of the frames were also a little rough. When we took pictures with the ultra-wide-angle camera, we found the quality to be significantly lower.
Selfies taken with the front-facing 8-megapixel camera were OK in bright sunlight. They looked good. In addition, the output looked like it had been sharpened, with the black levels being very high. Portrait photos had good edge detection, and the phone was able to get enough blur in bright sunlight to make the background of the picture a little more interesting.
Xiaomi Redmi 10 Prime Battery
The Redmi 10 Prime has a battery that is 6,000mAh big. This device can only charge at 18W, even though you get a 22.5W charger in the box with it. It also has 9W reverse charging, which means you can use this phone as a power bank to charge other things while you\’re still on the go.
The large 6,000mAh battery has enough power to last for more than a day and a half of continuous use without having to worry. The phone can run for 16 hours and 24 minutes during a high-definition video loop test. With the charger that comes with the phone, it takes 30 minutes and 50 minutes to charge it to 24% and 50% of its capacity.
Xiaomi Redmi 10 Prime Performance
The Redmi 10 Prime has a MediaTek Helio G88 chip that isn\’t very powerful when it comes to speed. If you look at GeekBench 5, it gets an average score of 370 points for single-core performance and 1210 points for multi-core performance on average. Compared to phones with processors like the Helio G95 and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 in the Realme Narzo 30 and Redmi Note 10, these scores aren\’t very good at all.
However, you can play both COD Mobile and BGMI at decent-medium setting. Also, even if the device has support for a 90Hz refresh rate, it is improbable to get that during real gameplay tests.
Xiaomi Redmi 10 Prime Design
Even though the device is made of plastic, there are bezels all around the screen, which makes it hard to read. As far as looks, Xiaomi has made the sides of the gadget a little more round so that it is easier to hold in one hand. A punch-hole has been cut out of the front panel to make room for the selfie camera. It\’s in the middle of the screen, near the upper part of the screen. When compared to other phones, the punch-hole is pretty big. Some people might find it annoying because of this.
In the power button on the right side of the device, there is a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. It is built into the button. On top of the power button, there is a volume control button. There is a SIM card slot on the left side of the phone. Apart from the IR blaster on top, we also have the headphone jack and speaker holes on top of the phone. The USB Type-C port, the main microphone, and the loudspeaker are all on the bottom.
Xiaomi Redmi 10 Prime Display
The new Redmi 10 Prime is equipped with an IPS LCD screen that runs at 90Hz and has a big punch-hole in the top. To make it easier to see, the company has kept the bezels around the screen as small as possible. Even though the overall resolution of the screen is full HD+ 1080p, this is the very least that you can expect at this price.
With this LCD screen in this price range, the brightness levels are enough for outside use, and the colour reproduction isn\’t as bad. There will still be a few stutters, though, because it is still a cheap phone.
