Redmi Note Series: Touch & Display Issues
Following the launch of the Redmi Note 10 series, many users ditched their old devices for the latest premium budget offerings from Xiaomi. However, a few of them report touch responsiveness and display flickering issues on their units. Since Mi Community is banned in India, users took to social media platform Twitter to voice their concerns. You can check out some of the tweets right below.

Now, as you can see, most of the users are facing touch responsiveness issues. This means that when the users start typing on their devices, the cursor is going haywire without any touch input. Some users even report slowdown and unresponsiveness issues from time to time.
Replacement Didn’t Work Either!
One user stated that his friend faced similar problems with his new Redmi Note 10 and got a replacement device. However, he allegedly faced the same issues on the replacement device. He then took it to an authorized service center where the technicians told him that this is not a hardware issue. As a result, they told him to wait for a software update before replacing the device.

Redmi Note 10 Pro/ Pro Max Screen Flickering Issue
Apart from the touch responsiveness issues, many users are also facing issues relating to screen flickering. As per the user reports, the screens of the higher-end Redmi Note 10 Pro and Note 10 Pro Max devices are flickering for no apparent reason. Moreover, the flickering is reportedly is more noticeable in dark mode.
Further, one user states that he faced the screen flickering issue only when the 120Hz refresh rate is enabled. The screen works perfectly fine at a 60Hz refresh rate, which is disappointing.
@geekyranjit @Dhananjay_Tech I started using redmi note 10 pro today and I noticed minor screen flickering issues when on 120Hz but the same is not on 60Hz, are you facing the same or is it just me ? Also is it software or a hardware issue ?
