Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite Review

The beginning of 2020 has been fruitful of new smartphones. The proposals of the Chinese company Xiaomi did not go unnoticed. As you know, it has the Mi Note series, which is subflagship. This means that the models have flagship features - cameras, software, etc., but the processor is simpler and the price is temptingly lower.


The look of the smartphone oozes premium quality. Its frame is made of aluminium. From afar, you can hardly distinguish the Lite-version from the Mi Note 10, but if you know that they are marketed in different colors, the problem is solved. The Mi Note 10 Lite has a gorgeous look, comfortably rounded edges and standard dimensions - 157.8 X 74.2 X 9.7 mm at a weight of just over 200 grams. It is suitable for use by both children and adults.


The Mi Note 10 Lite will win you over with a 3D-curved AMOLED display measuring 6.47 inches diagonally. It is protected by Gorilla Glass 5. The aspect ratio is 19.5:9 and the screen resolution is 1080 x 2340 pixels. The latter occupies 87.8% of the front panel, which is an excellent result. You will fully enjoy the content you are working with. The pixel density per inch is 398.

The maximum brightness level reaches 600 nits. Quite enough to work with the device to the fullest. The Always-on display feature is a welcome feature to save on battery consumption and keep you informed on essential matters without the need to touch the phone.


Mi Note 10 Lite is based on Qualcomm SDM730 Snapdragon 730G (8nm) chipset. The processor is 8-core and consists of 2 Kryo 470 Gold cores clocked at 2.2 GHz and 6 Kryo 470 Silver cores clocked at 1.8 GHz. The graphics is assigned to Adreno 618. You will find several memory modifications in the market including 6GB/64GB, 6GB/128GB and 8GB/128GB. No storage expansion option is provided, which is odd.

About the chipset, you should know that it is an improved gaming modification of the Snapdragon 730 with a power boost. With this smartphone, you won't feel any slowdown in your usual work, communication, internet browsing and gaming.

Mi Note 10 Lite runs on Android 10 operating system and MIUI 11 software. A fingerprint scanner is provided for added security. The device supports working with 2 SIM cards.


The Mi Note 10 Lite's photoblock is a modest version of the Mi Note 10's gorgeous 108MP camera photoblock. The main photosensor is a Sony IMX686 with 64 MP resolution, f/1.9, autofocus, laser focus and a decent amount of professional settings that will take top quality photos and videos. The other three cameras are an 8 MP ultra-wide lens, f/2.2, 1/4", a 2 MP macro lens, f/2.4, and a 5 MP portrait lens, f/2.4. This is an incredibly powerful photoblock that will be extremely useful to fans of mobile photography.

The front camera of the Mi Note 10 Lite is a single, 16-megapixel, wide-angle camera. With it, you can shoot videos at 1080 pixels resolution at up to 30 frames per second.

Autonomous operation

Mi Note 10 Lite has got a champion battery capacity of 5260 mAh. It is complemented by 30W fast charging technology. In terms of autonomy, this model makes a serious leap. It is comfortable for long trips and work commitments. Recharging it to 100% takes an hour. In 30 minutes, you'll be enjoying a new 58%.


We recommend you to buy Mi Note 10 Lite if you are a true photography connoisseur and looking for an affordable device. This device gives you access to a 64 MP resolution module and a bunch of professional settings. Moreover, you can enjoy it for up to 2-3 days of pleasurable intensive work. Be careful with the Mi Note 10 Lite - it's not waterproof. It does, however, come with a 3.5mm jack and a radio that music lovers will appreciate.
