Redmi Note 10T 5G vs Redmi 10 Prime

Redmi Note 10T 5G

Redmi Note 10T 5G seems to offer good hardware, on paper, for a starter 5G smartphone. There’s a capable MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor that’s built on a 7nm process and has an integrated 5G modem.

The smartphone runs MIUI 12, which is based on Android 11 and performs well in everyday use. It delivers two-day battery life with regular use. It also looks quite classy with a matte-finish polycarbonate back panel and Gorilla Glass 3 protection for its display. However, its main problem is that the cameras underperform when compared to the competition. Low-light performance is also not good. The quality of selfies is average at best.

Charging the large battery is quite slow at 18W. The competition offers much the same hardware at a lower price, and Xiaomi’s own 4G-only models boast better features.

Redmi 10 Prime

The Redmi 10 Prime carries the family look and sports a big 6.5-inch full-HD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate. It has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner that’s on the plastic frame and a quad-camera system at the back.

The smartphone is powered by a MediaTek Helio G88 SoC and has either 4GB or 6GB of RAM paired with 64GB and 128GB of storage respectively. The phone packs in a 6,000mAh battery and is capable of 18W fast charging. It runs MIUI 12.5 on top of Android 11.

The Redmi 10 Prime packs in a quad-camera setup consisting of a 50-megapixel primary camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, a 2-megapixel macro camera, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. Daylight camera performance was average but lowlight camera performance was below average. The Redmi 10 Prime offers better performance than its predecessor but does not offer the same value.
