Understated. Since the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite is almost as powerful and equipped with nearly the same features as its high-end sibling Mi Note 10, the "Lite" moniker is more confusing than it is informative. Xiaomi has only touched the camera module, which still offers a respectable resolution at 64 MP instead of 108 MP. However, the Mi Note 10 Lite is also significantly cheaper - in this regard, the "Lite" addendum fits.
