Is it Worth buying Redmi Note 10S – better then Moto G40?
We already had three smartphones under Redmi Note 10 Series and now Xiaomi just added another device. The Redmi Note 10S is powered by MediaTek Helio G95 Processor, it also has 5,000 mAh battery with 30W fast charging support and FHD+ AMOLED display.
Before I talk about Redmi Note 10S, let me tell you India Price of Redmi Note 10s.
Now you know the price of Redmi Note 10S and as you can tell, it’s be pricey as compared to it’s competition. Look at Moto G40, it has Snapdragon 732G SoC and it’s available at only Rs 13,999.
Is it Worth buying Redmi Note 10S
No, Redmi Note 10S is not worth buying because it’s bit overpriced. We have lots of other smartphone with better specifications, so it doesn’t make any sense to buy Redmi Note 10S over Moto G40. In short, Redmi Note 10S should have launched at 12k but it didn’t and now, it’s not value for money device either worth the 15k price tag.
I hope, you get your answer and you can also check out the full specifications of Redmi Note 10S but before that let me show you it’s competition.

If you ask me, I would say, it’ better to buy Redmi Note 10 or Moto G40 over Redmi Note 10S.
Also, if you look very closely, Redmi Note 10S is almost identical to Redmi Note 10. Here you can say, Xiaomi just changed the processor and changed the 48MP sensor to 64MP and that’s it.
In short, you can save three thousand and buy Redmi Note 10 but if you don’t like MIUI then you can also check Moto G40.
As I Have said, Redmi Note 10s is not worth the Rs 14,999 price tag, it should have launched at Rs 11,999 price tag. Practically, Xiaomi can’t launch Redmi Note 10s at 12k because they already have Redmi Note 10 at 12k, so what does that mean?
Redmi Note 10S shouldn’t have launched in first place because Xiaomi already have best smartphone at every single price tag which includes Redmi Note 10 at 12k, Redmi Note 10 Pro at 16k, and Redmi Note 10 Pro Max at 19k.
Overall, from myside, don’t buy Redmi Note 10S, instant of that, go for Redmi Note 10 or Moto G40.
That was it from myside, do let me know, what you think about launched two or three smartphones by these Chinese companies, why they can’t just launch one good smartphone and that’s it?
