We’re seeing the same result from our Galaxy S10 Lite vs Mi Note 10 comparison on this one. Although the Galaxy Note 10 Lite outshines the Mi Note 10 in some areas, the latter has other features that make it a great alternative to the former.

One of the biggest leads of the Samsung device is its powerful Exynos 9810 processor. This is the same chipset that powered the flagship Galaxy S9 series and Galaxy Note 9 from the last generation.


Meanwhile, the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 settles for a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor. We’ve already tested this chipset before and it handled everything we threw at it well. Although you can definitely get better performance from the Samsung device.

What makes the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite special is the features it inherited from the more expensive Galaxy Note devices. The main one is the S-Pen, which is now more powerful and comes with new tricks up its sleeves.


There’s also the large 6.7-inch display with the new Super AMOLED Plus panel. We also prefer the Infinity-O cutout on the middle-top for the selfie camera. Although we still appreciate the notched 6.47-inch AMOLED screen on the Mi Note 10.

Despite its bigger screen, the Galaxy Note 10 Lite has a smaller footprint than the Mi Note 10. It’s only 8.7mm thick, that’s 1mm thinner than the Mi Note 10. It also only weighs at 199g (versus 208g). It makes the Note 10 Lite more compact and portable for everyday carry.


Clearly, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite is for those who want to own a fancy device. A device that can handle every task they throw at it without breaking a sweat. And with the help of the S-Pen, allows them to be more productive or express their creativity.

Its price is yet to be announced, but in true Samsung fashion, we already expect it to be priced higher than its opponent. So if money is an issue, then you’re better off with the Xiaomi Mi Note 10.


Priced at only Php25,990, this one has the title of being the first to have a 108-megapixel primary camera. The best part is, it comes with four more cameras. There’s the 12-megapixel portrait, 20-megapixel ultra-wide, 5-megapixel telephoto, and 2-megapixel macro cameras.

Those clearly overpower the three 12-megapixel shooters on the Galaxy Note 10 Lite, at least on paper.


Besides its killer cameras and price, another ‘big’ feature of the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 is its large battery. This thing comes with a 5,260mAh capacity with a complementing 30W fast charging. That clearly overpowers Samsung’s bet and its 4,500mAh battery.

The Xiaomi Mi Note 10 is now available in Mi Authorized stores and Mi Zone kiosks nationwide. As well as in their official store in Lazada. Meanwhile, the official pricing and availability of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite in the Philippines are yet to be announced.
