There's an IR blaster on the top edge of the handset, and the MiRemote app can control any IR device you want -- provided you add the relevant data into the handset. The app walks you through this process. I didn't stuff this app into that file-and-forget folder. The Qualcomm Snapdragon G chipset with 6GB of RAM is a mid-range platform, which benchmarking bears out: Geekbench 5 returned average three pass scores of multi core and single core , which won't win any speed records.
The Xiaomi Mi A2 is good but it could have been great.
That said, the Mi Note 10 performed well enough when running mainstream workloads. I was unable to fully test the life of the 5,mAh battery, because the PCMark 10 battery rundown test refused to complete, bailing out at various different points on multiple attempts. This is a shame as the battery is considerably larger than most and comparative data would have been useful. Anecdotally, I managed to get through a day-and-a-half without recharging on lighter-usage days. That's less than I'd hoped for, but perhaps there will be a software fix that extends life further.
Fast 30W charging is available, but there's no wireless charging capability. The camera array is probably the Mi Note 10's most noteworthy feature, and the five rear cameras in particular.
Xiaomi Mi Note 10 review: Huge battery, 108MP camera, mid-range price
This provides plenty of 'zoomability' into finished images, which anyone who likes a bit of post-shooting tweakage should appreciate. Images zoomed to 50x on the handset are necessarily grainy, and shooting requires a very steady hand even with OIS. Getting around the camera app is more fiddly than it should be. Macro mode seems only available if you go into Pro mode and then scroll along the under-viewfinder options till the macro options becomes available.
Xiaomi Mi Note Best buy for camera buffs
I'd prefer it to permanently sit on the mode scroller beneath the viewfinder. Going via Pro mode is also the 'quick' way to switch into ultra-wide and telephoto modes.
Xiaomi probably needs to think a bit about the camera's interface to make accessing these options easier. For all that, and the problems with 50x zooming, this is a very capable camera suite, and especially impressive on a mid-range handset. The front 32MP camera also uses pixel binning, to produce 8MP images -- again, this could be useful for those who like to crop or otherwise play with their selfies.
Xiaomi has gone all out for an impressive camera setup with the Mi Note 10, and, with a couple of caveats, has achieved its goal. Access to some features can probably be made easier via a software update. However, the mid-range Snapdragon chipset might concern some, and battery life seems shorter than you'd expect from a 5,mAh unit.
