Xiaomi Redmi Note 10S

Representing the entry-level segment of the manufacturer, the Redmi Note 10S shares a good part of its technical sheet with the Redmi Note 10. Their common point: the design. We find a rather light smartphone (178.8 grams), with the same dimensions, the same front and back. On the screen side, it has the same 6.43-inch AMOLED panel displaying Full HD + definition. Some of you might regret the lack of a refresh rate higher than 60Hz, but the visual comfort is there. The screen offers good brightness, excellent contrasts and rather well calibrated colors.

An improved photo module

To continue in the comparison with the Redmi Note 10, this S version also offers a quadruple photo sensor located in the upper left corner on the back. This time, it is distinguished by its main photo sensor of 64 megapixels (instead of the 48 megapixels of the classic model). It is a much appreciated addition which will allow the smartphone to ensure a good quality of the shots when the light conditions are met. As for the other sensors, the ultra wide-angle, macro and depth cameras offer the same performance as on the classic version.

Surprising performances

Unlike the classic version, the Redmi Note 10S is equipped not with a Qualcomm chip, but with a MediaTek Helio G95 chip. In our test, he surprised us by running Fortnite with high quality graphics. A great feat vis-à-vis the Redmi Note 10 which did not go beyond the “low” level. This configuration therefore provides good fluidity on a daily basis, whether for multitasking or for running 3D applications and games. In addition, the MIUI 12 brand interface based on Android 11 offers a clearly pleasant and smooth experience.

As usual, Xiaomi puts the package on the autonomy side. The Redmi Note 10S Lite has a large 5,000 mAh battery. Despite a change of processor, the endurance of the device is not affected. The smartphone can be used for two days before requiring a full recharge and offers fast charging up to 33 W to quickly recover percentages: 50% in 30 minutes.
