Infinix has some cool specs on the Note 10 Pro, such as a MediaTek Helio G95 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a large 6.95in screen with a 90Hz refresh rate.

The first thing that caught my eye is the size of the Infinix Note 10 Pro. At 6.95 inches, the screen is huge and allows content to be viewed in landscape mode. One downside is that it is impossible to reach the top of the screen with a thumb while holding this phone in the same hand. This display has Full HD + resolution with 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sample rate. It also has a top center camera hole with a 16 megapixel selfie shooter. The earpiece is quite thin and is barely noticeable.
The Infinix Note 10 Pro’s frame is made of plastic and is curved on the sides, making it comfortable to hold. The top and bottom are flat. The Note 10 Pro has a 3.5mm headphone jack, main microphone, USB Type-C port, and speaker at the bottom, while the top is completely empty.
Infinix has opted for a side-mounted fingerprint scanner which is becoming the standard in this price segment. The placement is slightly higher than I would have liked. The volume buttons are above the fingerprint reader on the right and asked me to stretch my thumb to reach them. There are no buttons on the left side of the frame, only the SIM tray. There are two Nano-SIM slots and a dedicated microSD card slot for storage expansion.
The Infinix Note 10 Pro is 8.7m thick and weighs 207g. The back panel is flat but curves slightly to the sides to make the smartphone comfortable to hold.

The Note 10 Pro is powered by the MediaTek Helio G95 processor, with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. Infinix could have offered a lower RAM and storage option to position the Note 10 Pro in the sub-Rs. 15,000 price segments, but you might want to consider the Note 10 instead if that’s your budget limit. This smartphone runs on XOS 7.6 based on Android 11 and there is quite a bit of customization. My unit had the March Android security patch, which is slightly dated at this point. The Infinix Note 10 Pro also comes with a number of apps preinstalled, and some of them did push notifications while still feeling boring.
