Xiaomi Redmi 10A: An Affordable Phone in Pakistan

Great news for Xiaomi phone lovers as the company has launched another affordable smartphone in Pakistan. Yes, we are talking about the Redmi 10A. Its design is upgraded massively as compared to its predecessor Redmi 9A. But is there any other difference? Let us see it in this detailed Xiaomi Redmi 10A review. 

Xiaomi Redmi 10A: Design and Display (D&D)

A Classy Design

The design of Redmi 10A might be similar to the other latest Redmi devices, but it is quite different from its predecessor Redmi 9A. The camera module is large and in square form. This budget phone in Pakistan comes with 9mm thickness just like its previous model. Fingerprint sensor is placed at the backside inside the square of the camera module. Perhaps not the best of places for a fingerprint sensor.

Large Display

Display of Redmi 10A is the same as its predecessor’s with a large 6.53-inches IPS LCD. The resolution is HD+ though. Bazzles around the screen are noticeable and the chin is on the larger side. There is a notch in its display.

Xiaomi Redmi 10A Camera

Just like the Redmi 9A, this device has 2 rear cameras and 1 selfie camera. The 13 MP primary camera produces reasonable results, given the phone’s price. There is also a depth sensor so you can capture better portraits. Front camera has the same 5 MP sensor.

Xiaomi Redmi 10A Performance

The only upgrade in this department is the operating system. Redmi 10A runs on Android 11 and MIUI 12.5. All the other specs are the same. This device is okay for normal usage. It is not a gaming phone in any way. This is disappointing as the company could at least introduce a better processor in it.

Xiaomi Redmi 10A Features 

In terms of features, the only addition here is the fingerprint sensor which was not available in Redmi 9A. It is placed on the backside in the camera module square. You still get a micro USB instead of a type C port in it. Same is the case with the battery and charger that are not upgraded from its previous model.

Xiaomi Redmi 10A Price in Pakistan

Here is the price of Redmi 10A in Pakistan.

Xiaomi Redmi 10A Price in Pakistan
4GB RAM and 128GB ROM: Rs.26,500
3GB RAM and 64GB ROM: Rs.22,999

Given Redmi 9As price, this price might seem a bit higher but this is because of its higher RAM and ROM. Also, the USD rate is at an all time high in Pakistan so that impact is also added to it. 

However, you may buy Xiaomi Redmi 10A at a lower price from the retailers.

Final Verdict

Well, Xiaomi has brought some upgrades to this device as we have seen in this Xiaomi Redmi 10A review. For example, there is a fingerprint sensor, updated OS, and the design of the device is also upgraded. However, there are many other things that are almost the same as its predecessor’s. Looking at its affordable price, we can say that the specs and features are okay but the processor could be upgraded.
