The Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi continues its growth course in Europe and wants to score in the Christmas business with smartphones of the upper-middle class, above all the Xiaomi Mi Note 10.

With a big leap in innovation in the camera industry, many a challenger has already attracted the eye and rolled up the allegedly saturated Android market.

Xiaomi continues its expansive course towards Germany and, in addition to the budget model Redmi Note 8T with the Mi Note 10, is launching a sensational photo specialist on the market.

The price clearly undercuts the established brands. The upper-middle-class model sports five camera units on the back, one of which dissolves an awesome 108 megapixels.

But with this camera highlight, the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 has not yet fired his powder.

Xiaomi Mi Note 10 shoots with up to 50x zoom:


The five-megapixel Telecamera (f / 2.0) of the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 optically zooms in fivefold and in a hybrid combination with digital image enhancement even tenfold.

Pure digital, a 50-fold magnification is possible. Such a high optical telephoto range still offers few smartphone models, such as the Huawei P30 Pro (test).

Instead of just one, the Xiaomi model also has two Telecameras in stock. If a lower zoom level is sufficient, a twelve-megapixel camera (f / 2.0) with dual telephoto is available.

The standard wide-angle of 82 degrees covers the 108-megapixel main camera (f / 1.69). Such a high resolution has only been available with conventional professional cameras with significantly larger sensors.

A test will show how the smartphone-typical tiny sensor in the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 can master the noise behaviour of densely packed pixels.

For difficult lighting situations, Xiaomi recommends reducing the output to 27 megapixels, whereby the device uses Pixelbinning to calculate four pixels and then output the file as RAW for better postprocessing.

Xiaomi has developed the high-resolution sensor together with Samsung - which raises expectations.

The Penta camera of the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 complete an ultra-wide-angle camera (f / 2.2, 117-degree field of view, 20 megapixels) and a separate macro camera (two megapixels).

With the latter, objects can be in focus at a distance of two to ten centimetres. The camera app's operation settings cover many trend modes.

These include a night mode, a portrait mode with bokeh simulation and macro slow-motion at 960 frames per second.

Selfies can be captured with a 32-megapixel camera (f / 2.0). It also serves as a sensor for Face Unlock, which is not considered to be particularly secure due to the lack of a second camera or a ToF sensor.

Xiaomi Mi Note 10 is Zoom-King at DxOMark:


The DxOMark imaging experts have already tested and found the camera qualities of the virtually identical model Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro Premium Edition to be extremely good.

With a total score of 121 points, the Xiaomi unit shares the top spot of the benchmark with the previous champion Huawei Mate 30 Pro.

The Xiaomi smartphone scored a record in the Zoom section with 109 points. In the video category, it points to the previous leaders Google Pixel 4 (test) and Samsung Note 10+ (test) with the highest score of 102 so far.

Bokeh simulation and night mode also perform very well. Weaknesses were noted by the experts about partially eroded lights in high-contrast situations and, in rare cases, minimal colour casts.

First impressions from the camera:


Our own first impression is mixed. Photographing a subject with five different focal lengths is extremely convenient.

However, the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 takes a pause after each photo to save the file. An update fixes that hopefully.

To capture spontaneous opportunities is limited. With the macro camera, we can not shoot close-ups that are close to the official press pictures.

No bokeh, no depth effect. Is it up to us or the camera? We'll keep checking that. Besides, the colour reproduction on the OLED Display has an exaggerated effect. In the detailed test, we will deepen this impression.

The large, but not very bright 6.47-inch display:


The large, 6.47-inch diagonal display offers plenty of space to view the photo output. Curved edges to the right and left, an extremely narrow frame, a small Notch and a very compact chin make for a seemingly "limitless" visual impression.

The fingerprint sensor has Xiaomi trendy placed under the display glass, so it does not bother the even look in the back or front. The fingerprint sensor responds quickly and accurately in the first test.

Because Xiaomi has an AMOLED panel installed, it offers crisp colour reproduction with deep black. In the photo presentation, the colours seem a bit too much lifted in the first impression.

The resolution of FullHD + (2,340 x 1,080 pixels) is typical of the class. The screen is not particularly bright.

Typically it illuminates with up to 430 nits, in a particularly bright environment with 600 nits. To the bright stars of the industry such as the Samsung Galaxy S10 + (test), Xiaomi does not come up.

Reading the display outdoors in moderate sunshine is easy. Designed as an always-on display, the screen also displays selected information in standby.

Superior computing power for gaming:


Under the hood comes Qualcomm's new mid-range SoC Snapdragon 730G. The 7 Series brings top-notch features like Artificial Intelligence for camera tasks to affordable smartphones.

The suffix "G" can be read as an abbreviation for gaming in this chip variant. Because the computing unit manufactured in the eight-nanometer process should score especially in games with high performance and economical energy consumption.

For upscale graphics performance, the Kryo 470 eight-core main processor has an Adreno 618 GPU at its side.

The memory of the SoC has a reasonable six gigabytes of LPDDR4x RAM. In an otherwise identical version with pro-name addition, even eight gigabytes are available.

The Flash memory of the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 does not fall out normally with 128 gigabytes of the type UFS 2.1, although not small.

Who deposits many media or large apps installed, but should be annoyed that the memory can not be extended by a micro SD card.

If more memory is needed, the handle to the so-called pro version, which has 256 gigabytes onboard, is also recommended here.

The strong battery is thick:


For plenty of energy during extensive photo tours and gaming sessions, the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 is to provide a generous battery with 5,260 milliamp hours.

After Xiaomis internal and not further executed calculations this should allow a running time of two days.

If the battery then eventually has to insert a socket-stop, it can be quickly recharged with a 30-watt power supply from the package.

The lush energy storage takes up a lot of space and weight. That's why the case of the Xiaomi Mi Note 10, available in black, white or green, weighs a bit heavier than usual and weighs 208 grams and 9.68 millimetres thick.

We have a real chunk in our hands! Whether this interferes with everyday life or remains inconspicuous, we check in the detailed practical test.

After all, the slightly thicker housing still leaves enough room to accommodate a USB-type C port as well as a 3.5 mm jack.

MIUI 11 puts Android in the background:


Our test device is powered by Android 9 - not the current version of Google's operating system. An update to Android 10 should follow, however, as soon as the devices come on the market.

For other, already available models such as the Mi 9T Pro can download the update to Android 10 since yesterday.

Much of Stock Android is not seen either. Xiaomi's current interface MIUI 11 covers the operating system very extensively with its controls and adds productivity features.

These include wireless printing, a to-do app for tasks and notes, and a viewer app for office documents.

The Always-On display informs you of new messages instead of a Notification LED with animated dots and dynamically displays the clock with kaleidoscope dials.

At first glance, MIUI 11 looks smooth and intuitive. Our everyday experiences follow in the detailed test.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Price and availability:


The Xiaomi Mi Note 10 will cost 549 euros in Germany. A version with more RAM (8 gigabytes) and flash memory (256 gigabytes) will market Xiaomi as a Mi Note 10 Pro.

Its price rises to 649 euros. Both devices can be ordered from November 11 in Germany. When they are then delivered exactly, did not call Xiaomi yet.
