Battery and Performance
The Xiaomi Mi Note 10 is packed with a large battery capacity 5260mAh which is a big challenge for even the flagship phones. Xiaomi claims the battery would last as long as 2 days. The charger included in the box is a 30w fast-charging brick. Xiaomi also claims that the phone is charged from 0% to a full 100% charge within just 65 minutes which is a good deal to be true.
In terms of performance, the Mi note 10 and 10 Pro is not so good at all. With all the good features including the camera and the huge battery, the chipset is pretty weak. From a smartphone with the best camera, we would expect a great chipset in order to perform well, but that’s not the case with the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 or 10 Pro.

Xiaomi Mi Note 10 and 10 Pro include Xiaomi’s own MIUI based on Android 9 Pie which is soon to be upgraded to Android 10 in the near future.
