Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Camera Review


The Mi Note 10 is the company’s newest flagship and brings many camera-focused features to the table. It also looks like the top-of-the-stack flagship, with an attractive screen and a premium design.

The big sensor and f/1.9 aperture mean the photos look fantastic, particularly in good light, with high levels of detail. It has a separate ‘108MP’ mode for those that want to extend the resolution even further.


The Xiaomi Mi Note 10 has a hugely impressive camera, one of the best. It boasts a 108MP primary sensor that is the first of its kind on any smartphone, and an 8MP ultra-wide, 5MP Tele macro, and 2MP depth sensor back it up.

It also has a hefty 5.260mAh battery that will comfortably last you all day. It’s a little heavier than the pricier Note models and doesn’t have a super-fast charging feature like the Huawei P30 Pro. Still, the battery life is strong enough to make the Mi Note 10 worth considering for those looking for a great-looking and high-quality phone.

The rear isn’t quite as attractive as the curved screen on the OnePlus 7T, but it is a beautiful piece of kit, with a 6.47-inch AMOLED display that offers punchy colors and deep blacks. It’s also protected by Gorilla Glass 5 and isn’t excessively auto-dim.


The 6.47-inch display on the Mi Note 10 is a full HD+ panel with AMOLED technology. The colors pop, the brightness is high, and the contrast is good.

It’s a curved screen – more on that shortly – and the rear of the device is rounded, too, making it feel comfortable to hold in your hand.

In bright daylight, the 108-megapixel sensor looks fantastic, and you can zoom in to get more details, but it struggles a lot in low light, and it’s best used for shots where texture is critical.

It’s a spec sure to attract attention, but you’ll need to take care of it. The camera hardware is a little buggy, and the software doesn’t match that of the top Apple or Huawei phones, so it’s not a perfect solution for all situations.


The Mi Note 10 is a fantastic value smartphone that offers top-notch cameras and a massive battery. It also features a headphone jack, and that’s a significant plus, as other smartphones don’t include them.

The 108-megapixel camera is very good, although it’s worth noting that it doesn’t have the same high dynamic range as the best Apple or Huawei phones. It’s also prone to light smearing – particularly when you zoom in – and can take a long time to process a picture.

Its telephoto lens also performs well, producing sharp 2x and 5x zoom shots. That’s pretty impressive for a phone that costs a fraction of the OnePlus 7T.


With the Mi Note 10, Xiaomi pushes what’s possible on a smartphone. The most eye-catching feature is its 108-megapixel primary camera sensor, the first of its kind in a mobile phone.

The Mi Note 10 takes excellent photos in various conditions and produces bright, punchy images with good detail. Colors look natural and vibrant, skin tones are accurate, and there’s a nice bokeh effect when shooting portraits.

The camera isn’t perfect and struggles to focus accurately in low-light situations. There’s a night mode but the results aren’t on par with rivals, particularly without OIS.

As you can see in the pictures, the 108-megapixel sensor takes fantastic shots in daylight, and the colors are rich and natural. However, the camera suffers from a massive loss of color detail when it comes to low-light shots.
