Personally, we prefer the design of the 4G version over the 5G model in the Note 10. The back is made of plastic, and it appears that light is diverging from the camera module. In our opinion, the gradient finish on the Note 10 looked far better. There are three color options for the Note 10 Pro 5G: Magic Green, Moon Soul, and Star Yarn. The back panel is made of glass.
Concerning the display, Xiaomi swapped an AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 60Hz for an IPS LCD with a refresh rate of 90Hz. It features a 6.5-inch FHD+ IPS LCD panel with adaptive refresh rate. Depending on the content, the display can dynamically switch between 30Hz, 50Hz, 60Hz, and 90Hz. Choosing an LCD panel here, in my opinion, is a step back in terms of display quality and viewing experience.
The same is true for the Note 10 Pro 5G. A 6.6′′ FHD+ 120Hz IPS LCD panel with punch hole cutout is now available. The AMOLED screen will undoubtedly be missed in both of them. It has a typical brightness of 450nits, which is nowhere near the 1200nits of the 4G variant. Corning Gorilla Victus, on the other hand, guards the display. It uses the same glass as most flagship phones nowadays, which is a plus for the phone.
The Note 10 5G is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 700U 5G (7nm) processor, while the Note 10 Pro 5G is powered by a Dimensity 1100 (6nm) processor. Both CPUs support 5G. They outperform the Note 10 and Note 10 Pro 4G by a wide margin. The pro model has a quadruple cooling system with a vapor chamber, copper heat pipes, and graphite plates to keep the phone cool while gaming.
The Redmi Note 10 5G is equipped with up to 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.2 storage. The Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G has up to 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
The cameras on the Note 10 are essentially the same as the previous generation, with the exception of an ultra-wide sensor. It has a triple camera setup with 48MP+2MP+2MP lenses. The company has included an 8MP front-facing camera for selfies. The primary sensor on the Note 10 Pro 5G, on the other hand, is low in resolution. It now has a 64MP primary lens rather than a 108MP lens on the 4G version, as well as an 8MP ultra-wide and a 2MP Macro sensor, making it a triple camera system. For selfies, there is a 16MP front-facing camera.
Both have a 5000mAh battery. The Note 10 Pro 5G is compatible with 67W fast charging, which can charge it in about 42 minutes. It includes JBL dual stereo speakers for a high-resolution audio system. It also has a three-microphone array that helps with noise cancellation during calls. One critical difference is that the Note 10 Pro 5G lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack and micro-SD card support.
