Overall, the camera strength is better than the Redmi K40 series.

The wired charging power of the Xiaomi Mi 10S reaches 33W, and the charging speed is not far behind the Redmi K40 series. But it supports wireless fast charging, which is more convenient to operate. In this price range, models that can do this are very rare.

2. Cons of Xiaomi Mi 10S

(1). Performance is at a disadvantage

The flagship models in the same price range, including Redmi K40 Pro / Redmi K40 Pro+ and Realme GT, are already equipped with the top “Snapdragon 888” processor, while Xiaomi Mi 10S uses the “Snapdragon 870”. In comparison, A little bit weaker in performance.

(3). The screen is inferior

Xiaomi Mi 10S uses Samsung E3 grade curved screen material, with a refresh rate of 90Hz and a resolution of 1080p like Redmi K40. However, Redmi K40 uses a new generation of Samsung E4 material, 120Hz high-brush straight screen. In contrast, the screen experience of the Mi 10S is slightly inferior.

(4). No earphone jack and earphones

Mi 10S not only does not have a 3.5mm headphone jack, it is also not equipped with headphones. In contrast, the practice of retaining the 3.5mm headphone jack on the TrueWo GT is more acceptable to consumers.

In fact, the cancellation of the 3.5mm headphone jack in the past two years has become the “basic operation” of the mobile phone circle. In the past few years, due to the high price of Bluetooth headsets, many users could not accept it for a while. Nowadays, the development of Bluetooth technology is becoming more and more mature, the market competition is becoming increasingly fierce, and the price of earphones is also becoming closer to the people.

Therefore, Xiaomi Mi 10S without headphones is not enough to be the key to influencing consumer decision-making, because even with a budget of A few hundred dollars, you can buy wireless headphones with good performance configurations. For example, the Green Link HiTune T1 that the professor is using uses the “Binaural Simultaneous Interpretation Technology”. The left and right ears can receive the audio signal simultaneously, and the overall delay is lower. And thanks to ENC environmental noise reduction technology, it can filter most of the noise, and you can get a clear call experience in a noisy environment.

Both Xiaomi Mi 11 and Redmi K40 are equipped with a telephoto macro lens, while the Mi 10S is still a normal macro lens and cannot be used for macro photography from a long distance.

3. Is Xiaomi Mi 10S worth it?

In summary, the biggest highlight of the Xiaomi Mi 10S is the sound quality. Of course, the performance in terms of camera and battery life is also good. The shortcomings are the performance and screen. Moreover, in the flagship new machine of the same price range, the comprehensive cost performance is not high.

As for whether to start, the key depends on personal needs. If you meet two of the following situations, you can focus on it.

  1. High requirements for sound quality, like playing music outside
  2. Don’t pursue the ultimate performance, don’t mind the weight of the phone
  3. Pay more attention to photo effects and battery life performance, and there is a demand for wireless fast charging
