    The performance Master
    :

    If you thought, Xiaomi could not do any better with its last release you will be proved wrong by the new Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 lite. A superb processor, massive battery, and a big screen all under 16,000 is a dream that the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 lite brings true.

    All round features within a decent pocket pinch
    :

    Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi is known for providing the best smartphones within a budget. For many years, it has been giving its customers smartphones with rounder features which other brands offer at a much higher price. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 10S is the fourth smartphone in the Redmi Note 10 series. Its price is exactly in between Redmi Note 10 (starts at Rs 12,499) and Redmi Note 10 Pro (starts at Rs 15,999). It is largely similar to the Redmi Note 10 but has a better camera and processor. It was officially released on 28th April 2021.

It offers some pretty good features starting from a super sleek design, an amazing quad-camera to a high definition display and a very big internal memory. It even comes with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor which provides extra security to your phone. However, the battery capacity and the performance could have been better at the given price. It comes with a warranty period of 1 year.

Moreover, there are smartphones of similar quality from other brands like Realme 8 and Moto G40 Fusion, Micromax IN 1 128GB, etc., some having a higher price and some lower.
