Design and display
Of course the design of the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite isn’t very new. It looks an extreme lot like its ‘bigger brother’ with the biggest difference the camera layout on the back. On the front you get the same big 6.47 inch AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass 5 to make sure it can withstand a beating. The only difference is that the display is a bit less bright.
Performance and battery life
Inside the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite you find the exact same chipset as in the its sibling. The phone is powered by the Snapdragon 730G and comes with 6GB or 8GB RAM memory, depending on the choice of storage size which can be either 64GB or 128GB.
Surprisingly, the phone also comes with the same battery. A huge 5260mAh battery powers the device and this should give excellent battery life as the Snapdragon 730G chipset isn’t a very power-hungry one. But even if you drain the battery, the 30W fast charge gets you up and running super fast.
Now comes the biggest difference with its sibling. The camera. Instead of the 108 megapixels camera unit you get ‘just’ 64 megeapixels. There is no telephoto lens but the phone does have a 8 megapixels super wide angle lens. It also comes with a 5 megapixel depth sensing camera and a 2 megapixel macro lens. The selfie camera also got downgraded but still has a whopping 16 megapixels.
The setup will give decent pictures but is no match for its bigger sibling. It’s in no way a camera powerhouse as the other one is.
Conclusion: The biggest reason to buy the Mi Note 10 has been removed in the Lite version
The original is most loved for the stellar camera performance and it’s sad to see that the company decided to make the budget cut there. It’s logical though, as the camera is an expensive part of the phone. Nevertheless it would have been nice to have the same camera setup in a much cheaper phone.
