When it comes to affordable smartphones in the Android space, chances are that most consumers have in mind certain brands like Xiaomi, Vivo, Motorola, Realme, Nokia, and partially Samsung. However, one phone maker that people always overlook in the mid-range segment is the Hong Kong-based brand Infinix. This wouldn’t be wrong as they’re mostly focused on providing phones money can buy without interest in quality, unlike other brands. Fortunately, that has changed with the new Infinix Note 10 that introduces a whole lot of quality interesting features without many hikes in price.

Infinix has gone beyond innovation to improve the Note 10’s features while still maintaining the mid-range affordable price tag. The elements of a beautiful screen, strong bodywork, and the strength of the processors all come together to make the Note 10 a precise option for quality lovers. Now, the Infinix Note 10 has some heavyweights to face off in the market, but is it better than any of them?

The Infinix Note 10 has a gradient finish with a stripes pattern on the back that makes it look like a flagship device. With an absence of a fingerprint reader on the back, the rectangular camera module is positioned alone in the top left corner. The phone’s brilliant bodywork is followed by iconic flattering colour variants of Black, Purple, and Emerald Green.

The 2021 IF award-winning phone has a single appearance but two different battery colour designs that include symmetrical and polygonal vertical design aesthetics. All in all, the Note 10’s design looks pretty nice with a punch-hole display that’s surrounded by thin bezels with a marginally thicker chin.

Unlike most phones of this segment, there’s a side-mounted fingerprint reader that easily unlocks the phone within a second. It’s integrated within the power button and a design pattern we all love to have on our smartphones. Fortunately, you can choose to use the face unlock feature as your second security option which captures your face in the blink of an eye.

Nevertheless, the phone has the power button and volume rocker positioned on the top right side with SIM /SDcard slot on the left. Moving down to the bottom are the headphone jack, charging port, and stereo speakers. There’s no doubt this is a large device with dimensions of 173.2 x 78.7 x 8.8 mm. This paves way for comfy handling, especially to the advantage of those with large palms.

First things first, the 6.95-inch display is among the biggest in modern smartphones. For perspective, the latest Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra which is a flagship phone is slightly lower with a 6.8-inch screen. Meanwhile, while the size might be a turn off for those who detest large displays, we love it as it paves way for a wider viewing experience. Moreover, Note 10 has average dimensions that make it easy to flip inside your trouser pocket.

Meanwhile, the Infinix Note 10 has quality display features. The 6.95-inch screen is showing at Full HD+ (1080 x 2460 pixels) resolution with a 60Hz smooth refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling rate. However, if you want a 90Hz refresh rate phone that produces a smoother and more responsive experience, the bigger Note 10 Pro has all that but sells at a slightly higher price.

Overall, the Infinix Note 10 display has a perfect brightness level for indoor use, but you might struggle to view content under bright sunlight. Watching videos or playing games with this phone is a good experience because of its large display and smooth refresh rate.

On the camera side, the Infinix Note 10 features a triple camera setup on the rear that’s headed by a 48MP main camera, a 2MP macro lens, and another 2MP telephoto lens. The Note 10 camera performance is what you’d expect from a mid-range device. It performs great in a well-lit environment with a good portrait mode that maintains focus on the subject.

More so, the camera AI perfectly blurs the background without losing focus on the subject. However, indoor shots didn’t go that well, but it’s quite good for social media uploads. Upfront is a 16MP selfie camera with Beauty Mode and support for Super Low Light Mode. This is an average camera that’ll serve you decently in video calls and occasional selfies as it’s not the best in this category.

On the video side, the Infinix Note 10 can shoot quality 1440p and 1080p videos at 30fps. The phone provides an avenue for decent video shooting that’s good to upload on your different social media handles.

Performance and Software

The Infinix Note 10 comes with a MediaTek Helio G85 chipset that’s paired with dual RAM and storage options of 4GB /6GB and 64GB /128GB respectively. When it comes to normal day-to-day performance, the Note 10 showed no sign of lagging while switching between two apps and other more stringent processes like gaming. However, the phone heats up after long hours of gaming, but that’s normal in mid-range devices.

While we have quite acceptable performance, the same can’t be said for the phone’s UI. The Android 11-based XOS 7.6 software comes with a lot of bloatware apps and ads which hinders the smooth experience of the phone.

These ads are turned on by default once you have an active data connection, but you can dismiss them by swiping right. However, you can easily customize some tweaks and settings that come with the new Android 11.

Battery Capacity

The Infinix Note 10 is powered by a moderate 5000mAh battery cell that’s enough to get all your work done. However, this is regarded as a degraded battery since the Note 8 features a bigger battery capacity of 5200mAh. The Note 10 battery is integrated with an ultra power saving mode that gives you extra call hours when the battery is at 5%.

Meanwhile, there’s an 18W fast charger in the box that powers the phone from empty to full battery within 2 hours. However, the higher Pro model has an upgraded 33W charger in case you want something faster.
