Can the Redmi 10 Prime be a budget gaming phone?
I certainly think so because this phone has a very nice performance capability at quite an affordable price.
It comes with a 12nm class MediaTek Helio octa-core (2.0Hz Arm Cortex-A75 x 2 cores + 1.8Ghz Arm Cortex-A55 x 6 cores ) chipset with with 1000MHz ARM Mali-G52 2EEMC2 GPU backed by Android 11-based MIUI 12.5 OS, 4GB/ 6GB LPDDR4x RAM, 64GB/128GB eMMC 5.1 storage (expandable).
The interesting thing about the Redmi 10 Prime is that users can bump up the physical memory with up to 2GB for the 6GB RAM model and up to 1GB for the 4GB RAM variant. No other rival branded phones support this feature in this class. This will help boost the speed of app loading and operating tasks on the phone and it delivers the goods.
The Redmi 10 Prime performs smoothly in terms of day-to-day tasks such as browsing the internet, reading news feeds on social media platforms and operating a camera.
Even while recording videos or playing games, the phone managed to control the heating of the back panel. It never went off the mark.
The new phone houses a mammoth 6,000mAh cell and truly lives up to the hype. It consistently offered more than two days of battery life under normal usage. Even under extreme usage including bingeing of videos for long hours, it still had juice left in the tank and lasted a half-day the next day.
It comes with a 22.5W charger, but for now, it is limited to 18W charging. It takes a little over two and half hours to fully charge the device.
Also, it supports 9W reverse charging capability to power up your friend’s or family member’s phone. This is another really handy value-added feature.
