Infinix has practically made it to the big leagues. The Note 10 Pro, the company’s new smartphone, has a gigantic 6.95-inch display, one of the largest I’ve seen on a smartphone.
The single 8GB RAM, 256GB storage option of the Infinix Note 10 Pro (not to be confused with the Redmi Note 10 Pro) costs Rs. 16,999. 7-degree Purple, 93-degree Black, and Nordic Secret are the three colors available, each having an odd name. A 5,000mAh battery and a competent processor are also included in the large body.
Specifications and software for the Infinix Note 10 Pro
Many recent smartphones in the Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 20,000 price range is powered by the chip, including the Poco X3 (Review), Realme 8 (Review), and Redmi Note 10S (Review), to mention a few. This processor is said to be fantastic for gaming. Infinix could have released a 6GB RAM model, as it does in other markets. Infinix has also included a DTS-enabled stereo speaker system. Although most budget smartphones lack stereo speakers, this one takes advantage of the large screen for entertainment.
For storage expansion, the Infinix Note 10 Pro offers two Nano-SIM slots and a dedicated microSD card slot. The onboard storage of 256GB is more than plenty. The Android security patch for March was installed, which is a little out of date at this point. On the device, everyone gets a number of preinstalled apps, including Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, and a few Infinix-developed apps. The Palm Store is a Google Play Store equivalent.
The Video Assistant, for example, is one of the amazing features built into XOS 7.6 by Infinix. This allows you to do numerous things while watching a video in an app like YouTube by swiping in from the side. The best function is called “Play in background,” and it allows users to listen to YouTube videos even when the screen is turned off.
Blocking incoming calls and notifications, as well as taking screenshots and screen recordings, are some of the other Video Assistant features. This enables you to instantly place the current app in picture-in-picture mode in a corner, allowing you to see another app running in the background.
Cameras on the Infinix Note 10 Pro
A 64-megapixel primary camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with macro capabilities, a 2-megapixel depth sensor, and a 2-megapixel black-and-white camera are all found on the rear of the Note 10 Pro. It has AI scene detection, which detects what the phone is pointed at quickly. Daytime photos taken with the Infinix Note 10 Pro featured good detail and a nice dynamic range. Objects could be recognized from a distance, and text could be read. Close-up images looked better when the background had a natural-looking depth effect and the subject was sharp. Portraits had good edge detection, but I couldn’t change the blur level before shooting. For maros, the Note 10 Pro used its ultra-wide-angle camera, which produced clear images with good details. The resolution is superior to that of phones equipped with dedicated macro cameras.
The design of the Infinix Note 10 Pro
The Infinix Note 10 Pro has won an IF Design Award for 2021 for its attractive design. The Infinix Note 10 Pro is a large smartphone with a massive 6.95-inch display. It’s not quite tablet-sized; the smartphone has a 20.5:9 aspect ratio, making it tall and slender. It’s possible to hold it in one hand, but reaching the top of the screen with one thumb would be difficult. One can hold it with one hand, but won’t be able to reach the top of the display with a thumb. The edges of the phone have a small bezel, but the bottom chin is fairly big. At the top center of the screen, there is a large camera hole. Some people may find the hole bothersome due to its size.
The Infinix Note 10 Pro’s earpiece is very narrow and is wedged between the display and the frame. Surprisingly, this smartphone contains a front-facing flash that is tucked down close to the earpiece. Infinix has opted for a fingerprint scanner on the side, which is now standard on smartphones priced at about Rs. 15,000 and up.
The phone’s frame is comprised of plastic, according to Infinix. The sides are curved, while the top and bottom are flat. The SIM tray is located on the left side, while the 3.5mm headphone jack, loudspeaker, and USB Type-C connector are located on the bottom. The top of the page is empty. The two-step architecture of this module reminds me of Vivo’s newest smartphones.
During the review period, the Infinix Note 10 Pro delivered excellent performance and never slowed down. The display of the Note 10 Pro boasts good viewing angles, and the speakers are stereo. The Note 10 Pro received a score of 359,128 on AnTuTu.
After a week of use with the Infinix Note 10 Pro, it can be stated that, while the device’s size may not appeal to everyone, it is ideal for media consumption. The phone never seemed to slow down because of the strong SoC and 8GB of RAM. Infinix could have made a lower-specced edition of the Note 10 Pro available to make it more affordable. The cameras are average, and the lack of video recording stabilization may be a deal-breaker for some.
