Inside the box you have the following items: NOTE 10 Pro unit, SIM Ejector Tool, Warranty Card, Clear Protective Jelly Case, XCLUB XGOLD Voucher, USB-C Cable, USB-C Charger, and Tempered Glass.

There’s no earphone included in the box so if you don’t have one you may need to buy one as they mostly cheap nowadays.


It’s a huge good-looking phone and if you didn’t know the Infinix NOTE 10 Pro has won an iF Design Award 2021 last year.

For our review unit we got the 7°Purple color as the back panel gets a remarkable two-tone design effect. You get this nice shimmering patterns and texture on the top half while the bottom gets this “polygonal vertical grating” stripe design with an Infinix logo.

The overall frame of the NOTE 10 Pro is made of metal while the front panel offers a slight curved glass and a glossy cover back panel combined with glass and durable polycarbonate material. The back panel is prone to fingerprint smudges so you may want to use the included protective jelly case.

It has a rectangular camera module design on the top left that holds its quad cameras and the LED flash.

Located on the right side are the volume rocker and power button with side-mounted fingerprint sensor while the SIM card tray on the left. At the bottom you have the USB Type-C port, speaker grille, microphone, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Throughout the front display panel you get a slim top and side bezels but the bottom chin are a little bit thicker. Housing the front camera is a punch-hole design. The earpiece is located between the display and top bezels. Good thing this phone has a front-facing flash for low light conditions that’s partly hidden at the right of the top bezel.


Aside from the aesthetics, the display of the NOTE 10 Pro is probably the first thing we’ve notice immediately.

It has a large 6.95-inch FHD+ Super Fluid display using an IPS panel making the whole screen to deliver vibrant colors, nice contrast and sharp text. It gets a smooth-looking motion with the support of a 90Hz refresh rate and the 180Hz touch sampling rate for improving the recognition and movement of your fingers on the display.

Overall, the NOTE 10 Pro’s display offers good viewing angles and with the large size of 6.95-inch Full HD panel makes it perfect to watch your favorite movies or play games.

On the sound quality of the speakers they do offer fairly good stereo sound but aren’t balanced though as the bottom-firing one is a bit louder than the earpiece above. We find the bass lacks a little punch, vocals are clear but you get more high-pitched sounds coming from the speaker.

You have DTS Sound mode letting you switch to the sound according to the scene like for music, video or game. You can opt to the smart mode so the device will automatically select the scene. If you want to further tweak the sound there’s an equalizer option to toggle or adjust the settings.


One of the main highlights of the NOTE 10 Pro is the built-in processor which uses the latest MediaTek Helio G95. MediaTek claims that the Helio G95 is optimized for a good performance in video games and the utilization of high-definition content on all platforms.

For storage, the NOTE 10 Pro last year had a 128GB storage Infinix upgraded it with a hefty 256GB storage enough to store more games, photos, videos, music or other files plus you get 8GB RAM to smoothly run more apps in the background without slowing your phone down. If the 256GB is not enough, you can magnify your storage further up to 512GB via a MicroSD card.

Here are our benchmark scores on the Infinix NOTE 10 Pro.

  • Antutu V8 – 373,235
  • Geekbench – 472 Single Core / 1536 Multi-Core Score
  • PC Mark – 10,237 Work 3.0 Performance Score
  • 3D Mark – 1,492 (Average frame rate – fps: 8.90)
  • A1 SD Bench – Read 528.11MB/s and Write 396.28MB/s

I tried playing Call of Duty and Mobile Legends on the Infinix Note 10 Pro with the default graphics set to the HD or high preset and high settings for frame rate. After a round that lasted 35 minutes, I noticed that it had a 10 percent decline in the battery level.

Both games was playable at these settings, the display gets a nice vibrant color with sharp details and I did not experience any lag or stutter. What we also noticed is the phone was slightly warm to the touch. You can all access your games with the pre-installed Game Zone app with a few selection to block incoming messages or calls while playing.


In terms of software, the device runs on XOS 7.6 based on Android version 11. Some good features on the Infinix software are these nice stylized geometric icons for a simpler clean look.

For added security, you can hide your banking, social media apps and personal photos with Xhide. Theft alert will sound an alarm in case your phone is unplugged. If other are snooping at your screen Peek Proof can obscure your phone’s display. Lastly, Kid mode sets the limit of usage and customize the apps you can only allow.

The NOTE 10 Pro has many preinstalled apps such as Facebook, Messenger, TikTok, Instagram, and a few of Infinix’s very own apps like XNote, XTheme, Game Zone and more. It comes with the AHA Games app which host a library of games you can download to play. You can try to uninstall or disable the app if you don’t want it to be there.

Another cool set of features on the XOS 7.6 are the Video Assistant and Thunder Back. Video Assistant lets you lets you swipe in from the side while you’re watching a video app like YouTube to do the following play in background, blocking incoming calls or notifications, taking screenshots and screen recordings. Thunder Back on the other hand enables you put the current app in picture-in-picture (PIP) mode so you can see another app running in the background just by double-tapping the power button.

The OS on the Infinix NOTE 10 Pro gave us a good and decent performance as it never slowed down especially with the installed apps which launched very quickly and we didn’t have to wait for long. Multitasking on the device was easy and I could shift between multiple apps with ease. The built-in fingerprint scanner is fast and making it easy for the device to unlock.


The NOTE 10 Pro sports a quad-camera setup in a rectangular-shaped module consisting of a 64-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera, a 2-megapixel depth sensor and another 2-megapixel black and white camera. There’s also an LED flash together with camera lens in the camera module as well. The front facing camera has a 16MP AI advanced selfie camera.

You get 13 Shooting modes available on the camera app like short video, video, AI Cam, beauty, portrait, super night, AR shot, slow motion, PRO, panorama, documents, super macro, and time lapse.

Other features found on the camera app are Google Lens an AI-powered technology that offers a   search engine to identify text and objects thru your camera. Eye Autofocus makes sure that you get clear sharp face with real-time eye-tracking accompanied by AI algorithms helps delivering more natural and studio-style pictures.

Overall, we like the photos we captured with the Infinix NOTE 10 Pro especially during daytime or bright conditions. It had good details, objects at a distance were recognizable, and decent dynamic range. On the device the colors on the photos are vivid but when we actually downloaded for a quick look they are not too saturated but gets good color exposure. You can still buff or toned the colors more once you edit it thru the photo gallery.

Using the ultra-wide-angle lens can shoot decent quality photos but these weren’t as crisp and detailed as it’s a little bit hazy than those taken with the primary sensor.

Here some few sample shots on the Infinix NOTE 10 Pro.

During low light conditions there’s an available night mode from the camera app. So far, on the primary sensor you get nice quality shots with less noise. With ultrawide on the night mode you get a fairly decent quality but we only noticed that it gets a bit hazy with less or fewer noise.

The selfies on the 16-megapixel front shooter during bright conditions were good and gets a fairly nice bokeh effect on portrait mode. Low-light selfies with night mode selected still gets you fairly good quality shots but with a little noise and the device crushed blacks by bumping up contrast in darker areas. Good thing they have a front-facing flash which helps lessen the noise when shooting in dark conditions.

For video recording the NOTE 10 Pro can capture 4K quality at 30fps, 1080p at 60fps or 30fps, and 720p at 30fps.

You have video stabilization or ultra-steady feature only available on 1080p @ 30fps. There are also some useful video enhancements like Video Beauty and Bokeh effect.


A massive 5,000 mAh battery is equipped to power the NOTE 10 Pro with 33W X-charge technology that enables for a faster-charging. The device does not support any wireless charging feature.

Charging the device completely took less than an hour and a half to fully juice up the large battery to 100 percent. A 5-minute charge will give an initial 7% charge but after 30 minutes it already goes up to 50%.

The NOTE 10 Pro is built with a unique hardware power-saving technology called Power Marathon that provides an additional 25% power once the battery runs down to 5%. It also has Power Boost and Ultra Power Saving feature extending more power to your battery. Other additional settings we find it useful are charging completion tone, battery percentage indicator and low battery shutdown warning.


After using the Infinix Note 10 Pro for a week, we are already loving the built-in features it offers.

First, the large 6.95-inch display gets a better use mostly for gaming and multimedia content with an available refresh rate of 90Hz.

Next, hardware is one more advantage of this device having a powerful MediaTek Helio G95 octa-core processor, 8GB RAM, 256GB storage with expandable options and a hefty 5,000 mAh coupled with a 33W fast charging feature.

Both rear and front camera can capture good and decent photos during daytime and you have a night mode you can rely on in case for low light conditions.

Lastly, the price couldn’t be better as well as the NOTE 10 Pro is priced for only PHP11,990!
