Xiaomi Redmi Note 10S: A consistent OS would have been nice

Does not offer more performance than the predecessor: the Redmi Note 10S

The Redmi Note 10S ships with Xiaomi’s proprietary launcher. However, Xiaomi's software is not very consistent.

We have reviewed all of the smartphones in Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 10 series (Redmi Note 10S, Redmi Note 10, Redmi Note 10 Pro, Redmi Note 10 5G). The Redmi Note 10S is that the latest device that we have reviewed. Over the course of our reviews, we learnt a few things about the differences in hardware. We also learnt about the behaviour of the software.

The Redmi Note 10S, which comes with the MediaTek Helio G95, ARM Mali-G76 MP4, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory, offers the same level of performance as the predecessor model Redmi Note 9S.

When compared to the Redmi Note 10, the main distinguishing feature of the Redmi Note 10S is an NFS chip. The Redmi Note 10 Pro has a considerably better camera system than the Redmi Note 10S. In terms of price, The Redmi Note 10S, which costs about 220 Euros (~$263), slots in between the Redmi Note 10 and Redmi Note 10 Pro.

However, all models feature the same software. They run Android 11 with a custom launcher known as MiUI (12.5). While the Redmi Note 10 displays advertisements when installing applications via the File Manager app, the Redmi Note 10S does not. The Redmi Note 10 Pro feels very responsive. There are security prompts when changing system settings.

The Redmi Note 10S failed to run some of our benchmarks because it was unable to connect to the servers of the benchmark providers. It appears as though Xiaomi has intentionally blocked some benchmarks from running.

The Redmi Note 10 did not exhibit this sort of behaviour. However, the Redmi Note 10 5G did. System-level restrictions seem to limit the ability to run benchmarks on some Xiaomi smartphones. We do not find this to be a particularly good development.

I carried out my first IT experiments with a 386-based system and a whole 4 MB RAM. This was followed by work on various PCs and laptops that I maintained and repaired for friends and acquaintances. After training to become a Telecommunications Systems Technician and gaining a few years of experience, I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering. Currently, I pursue my fascination for IT, technology, and mobile devices by writing reviews and articles for Notebookcheck. I have also worked for Gamestar, Netzwelt, and Golem, among others.

I am a big fan of technology, which is why I try to keep up with it. Among my other passions are literature and writing, and so it should not be surprising to anyone at all that I have a four-year bachelor's degree in philology. However, my interests are not limited just to the world of technology, or, for that matter, the world of literature. I am also interested in people and the stories they have to tell. And more recently, I took an interest in artificial intelligence.
