Long term review of the Mi Note 10, to see if it’s still worth snatching up in 2020 after Xiaomi’s fresh new flagship smartphones have launched globally. I never got around to featuring this 6.5-inch 108MP monster originally, so here’s my tardy Mi Note 10 verdict, complete with camera tests and all you need to know.

First up, yes, that crazy megapixel count was the headline grabber here. But this mighty mobile has a lot more to offer, from dependable battery life and a gorgeous OLED screen to that updated MiUI 11 software. An apps tray, at last, huzzah!
I’ve actually found that the Mi Note 10’s camera tech is a bit hit-and-miss, with the telephoto and ultra-wide lenses not matching many mid-range rivals. Of course, the zoom lens is kind of unnecessary anyway, as the 108MP mode means you can crop into photos and still get a sharp picture.
Sadly the Snapdragon 730G platform means performance can be stuttery, especially when using Xiaomi’s more powerful camera features. But the good news is, you can happily game on PubG Mobile and other 2020 titles without a single stutter.
