Should you buy Redmi 10 Prime?

The Redmi 10 Prime is currently the cheapest phone in the Redmi 10 series from Xiaomi. Its specifications may be underwhelming for its price point, especially when you consider what the Redmi Note 10 was offering at its launch price of Rs 11,999. However, with the Redmi Note 10 getting several price hikes, the Redmi 10 Prime is the only decent option you have between Rs 10,000 to Rs 13,000.

In our Redmi 10 Prime review, we said that the phone “has all the specs you can expect from a budget Redmi device such as a large battery, decent performance, and a high utility display, though the shooting prowess does leave one wanting. However, pricing the device so close to the Redmi Note 10, which is a better phone for the price, seems odd.”
