Xiaomi Mi 10t Lite is equipped with a screen with a diagonal of 6.67 inches. This is a typical size for a modern smartphone and is suitable for any content - photos, videos, texts and more. Xiaomi Mi 10t Lite in terms of dimensions offers compactness and convenience (165.4 x 76.8 x 9 mm). Its weight is a little higher, but it's not much of a negative. The frames around the screen are small. Only at the bottom they are slightly thicker. The upper part is nicely shaped. There you will find the front camera. Looking at the back panel, we see that it is made of glass. The rounded edges contribute to comfort during work.

The Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite is definitely a smartphone you'll want to show off. It has a pleasant vision, and there are almost no traces of use on its body.


One of the things that impresses most about the Xiaomi Mi 10t Lite is the display. It is incredibly bright, colorful and contrasting. The maximum screen brightness in manual mode is 600 nits. Automatic mode can increase this figure to 800 nits. Even in direct sunlight, it will not be difficult for you to read information from the screen.

The fingerprint scanner in the Xiaomi Mi 10t Lite is located below the screen, at the bottom. It works quickly and accurately. As an alternative to this security system, facial recognition has been proposed. We can also say that it works quickly and without error.

If you are looking for the maximum level of protection, use both systems.


The Xiaomi Mi 10t Lite pays special attention to gamers. A well-chosen processor is responsible for excellent performance, and for each game you can individually adjust the sensitivity to pressure, select areas where the sensor is turned off, and more. In addition, engineers have improved the image. It is more contrasting, more cinematic. Xiaomi Mi 10t Lite is able to artificially increase the detail during the game.

Under the body of this Xiaomi model lies the Qualcomm SM7225 Snapdragon 750G 5G chipset, which includes an 8-core processor clocked at up to 2.4 GHz. The graphics accelerator is Adreno 619. The processor is made of modern 8-nm process technology, which has a positive effect on autonomous operation and heating.

With the Xiaomi Mi 10t Lite in hand, you can count on a device that will provide you with optimal working conditions for at least a few years. You will find it on the market in two versions - with 64GB / 6GB RAM or with 128GB / 6GB RAM. The manufacturer has not provided an option to expand the internal storage with a memory card.


The Xiaomi Mi 10t Lite's camera, given its budget nature, is simpler than the flagships and camera phones. You will feel the difference the moment you shoot in imperfect conditions. For example, in less light. In typical conditions, the photos with the main camera are detailed and with correct color rendering. As a basic sensor, Xiaomi has offered a 64-megapixel module, complemented by an ultra-wide sensor, a macro lens and a depth sensor.

The camera interface has been significantly redesigned. It is now much more convenient to select the mode you want and adjust the settings. Video capture is possible up to 4K at 30 frames per second. There is also a 1080 pixel mode at 60 frames per second.

Autonomous work

Xiaomi Mi 10t Lite is equipped with a non-removable battery with a capacity of 4820 mAh. Battery life is not a strong point of this smartphone. However, you can count on a day of active use. If you are more economical, you will need to recharge in two days.


Xiaomi Mi 10t Lite is definitely interesting and will satisfy the requirements of many users who are not interested in flagship features. The device is based on a normal chipset, has a satisfactorily large display and a stylish appearance. To this we must add enough RAM and internal storage, NFC support for contactless payments and good photo quality. Both the front and rear of the model are protected with Gorilla Glass 5.

This smartphone is perfect for everyday use. On it you can listen to music, watch videos and play games.
