The Redmi Note 10S has a quad-camera setup at the back, consisting of a 64MP wide camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, and a 2MP macro camera. The main camera modes can be accessed at the bottom of the screen (in portrait) and you can either choose to have the extra modes be hidden under a separate 'More' screen or swipe up to access all of them. Xiaomi still has its own app store, even though it has removed many of its apps over the years that simply duplicate existing Google apps.

The Redmi Note 10S runs Android 11 (security patch level at the time of our review: May, 2021) The 6.43-inch AMOLED screen has a native resolution of 2400x1080 pixels. Thanks to a 2-MP depth sensor, the 64-MP main camera can produce very detailed close-up shots. However, the corners look quite blurry and washed-out.
