Xiaomi Redmi Note 10S Review

Xiaomi redmi note 10s is a smartphone with a gaming processor, a perfect screen and a 64-megapixel camera. It is also equipped with an NFC module. All this gives it the right to fight for the user's attention. The smartphone offers a balance between features and price. In addition to all this, we should mention a solid internal storage, a large battery and support for fast charging technology.

As a result, Xiaomi redmi note 10s has turned out to be quite interesting. This is due to its housing and fresh design, which will be discussed in the next lines.


In appearance, the Xiaomi redmi note 10s completely repeats the familiar look of its predecessor, the redmi note 10. The camera unit and the rear panel are similarly designed. Differences are seen only in minor details. On its right side, you will find the fingerprint sensor. This solution is convenient and well-established over the years. The sensor itself works quickly and precisely. Next to it is positioned the volume control button.

Xiaomi redmi note 10s is compact in size and thin, just 8.3 mm. You will enjoy using it. The back cover is glossy and made of plastic. With the help of a case, you'll save it from accumulating finger marks. The glass on the front is covered with Gorilla Glass 3.


The smartphone comes with a quality AMOLED FHD+ screen with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels. The viewing angles are good. Good news for users is the availability of the DC Dimming feature. It is tasked with reducing the impact of light from the screen on vision.

With its 6.43-inch diagonal display, this Xiaomi model will give you pleasure no matter what content you are viewing. The screen is large enough to play games, read articles and use a bunch of apps. Compared to the entire front panel, it occupies 83.5% of the area. Corning Gorilla Glass 3 coating is provided for added protection. It's not the most advanced, but it provides more resistance to drops.


Unlike the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro, here we have an upgraded MTK Helio G95 processor. The improvements in it are visible in tests. Taking into account the optimization of the processors, the performance of Xiaomi redmi note 10s is enviably high. You can count on smooth and fast performance with various apps and games. The ARM Mali-G76 3EEMC4720 MHz is responsible for the graphics. This processor is capable of meeting the high demands of a number of online games, including Call of Duty: Mobile, Fortnite, Shadowgun Legends and Mobile Legends.

Xiaomi redmi note 10s runs on Android 11 operating system and MUIU proprietary interface. Already at launch, it offers the user to transfer the data from the old device to the new one.

The smartphone is available in the market in several modifications. You can choose between 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of storage. The latter can be expanded using a microSDXC card, for which a separate slot is provided.


One of the strengths of the Xiaomi redmi note 10s is the rear Quad camera with a 64 MP main sensor. Unlike a popular model in the market like the Poco F3 with its 48 MP camera, here we see a more advanced sensor. We are talking about the OmniVision OV64B 64MP (f/1.79). As additional sensors are used 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle Sony IMX355, 2-megapixel macro camera GalaxyCore GC02M1 and a sensor for measuring the depth of the frame also 2-megapixel.

A 13-megapixel OmniVision OV13B10 sensor is used as the front camera. You'll be able to take decent selfies with it, and the more you exercise the modes with it, the better they'll get.

Autonomous operation

Xiaomi redmi note 10s runs on a 5000 mAh battery. The manufacturer has bundled a 33W fast charger. With moderate use, you can count on a day and a half - two. Any more serious use of the smartphone will discharge the battery within the day.

With fast charging technology, you can charge 32% of the battery in just half an hour.


Finally, we have to say that Xiaomi redmi note 10s is quite an interesting modern device. It impresses with high performance and the presence of a version with NFC.
