I was impressed when I got my Xiaomi Mi Note 10 lite; the excitement from un-boxing the Mi Note 10 lite, to an extent, made up for the loss of my Mi Note 10. However, when I decided to give the Mi Note 10 lite a try, I wasn’t sure it would be a great idea because I was attached to Mi Note 10. But I also didn’t have extra cash to get the Mi Note 10, above my budget. So, I decided to buy a mid-range version: the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 lite.

Mid-range phones are alternatives to flagship-level phones that aim to achieve the same quality for low-budget individuals. Xiaomi aimed to achieve the same quality as the Mi Note 10 and the Mi Note 10 lite, although Xiaomi made some minor cuts from the specifications to make it more affordable. Notwithstanding, Xiaomi Mi Note 10 lite was the best alternative for a flagship phone my budget of $450 can afford.
I got my Xiaomi Mi note-10 lite from Aliexpress, where I got the best deal for my budget Midrange phone. However, I must say that though Xiaomi built the Mi Note- lite to be a mid-range phone, it has attractive specs peculiar to flagship phones, and that was what caught my interest about Mi Note 10 lite.
Xiaomi built mi Note 10 lite to be a durable device compared to other phones within its range and class.

Conclusive verdict on the performance of XIAOMI MI Note 10 lite
My verdict on the XIAOMI MI Note 10 lite
WHEN a smartphone name contains ”lite”, it usually indicates variations and cuts in the ”non-lite” version.
