Digital Camera World Verdict

The Xiaomi Mi Note 10 isn’t just a 108MP camera phone, it’s also a competitively priced handset in almost every respect, combining great design with a big battery, fast charging, and an in-display fingerprint scanner. You won’t get a sharper camera phone for the price; we can say that with confidence, but there’s no getting around the fact the phone’s power has trouble keeping the phone feeling snappy when processing those big-pixel-count images.

Vying for the title of best camera phone in 2020 is the 108MP Xiaomi Mi Note 10, an Android phone that costs the same as affordable flagships like the Asus Zenfone 6 and OnePlus 7T, despite packing groundbreaking imaging tech inside.

Xiaomi is no stranger to knocking our socks off with excellent value for money; the fantastic Mi 9T Pro delivers flagship power at under £400, and now, the Chinese phone maker has produced a world-first pixel-count smartphone in partnership with Samsung.
