#TechnologyforEveryone'

Great phone experience', is what you will think of when someone mentions the Mi Note series.

Xiaomi took its end 2019 Note series,
changed its camera setup and left out the laser focus to create an ultra modern but affordable device.

Apple resurrected their old iPhone 8 from 2017,
upgraded its processor and optimized the software and named it the SE.

Advantages iPhone:
The High end processor inside the iPhone SE is the same that's inside the iPhone 11 but somehow the performance is decreased.
Still it receive higher scores in Benchmarks compared to the SD730G. Wireless charging is present and the storage can go up to 256GB.


Advantages Mi Note 10:
Compare A big curved AMOLED screen vs a tiny LCD screen with a big bezel.
It is obvious which phone will catch your attention.
Xiaomi's Mi note 10 lite is superior to the SE in terms of screen size,Screen-Type, body ratio and pixel density!



A bigger phone means a bigger battery, and well...
Is it even fair to compare the iPhone SE capacity vs the Mi note 10 Lite?

You can almost fit 3 iPhone batteries inside this Xiaomi's device!!
Don't worry about the 'charging time', Xiaomi almost doubled the amount of Watts!

A heavy user, use a lot of APPs. To keep multiple applications run smoothly you need RAM.
The Mi note 10 Lite comes with a minimum of 6GB.
Need more? Choose for 8GB! The iPhone comes only with just 3GB!




The Iphone SE shares the same 16MP camera from the old Iphone 8.
The Mi Note 10 Lite comes with a 64MP Quad camera setup!

Made for fans!

Many people still love their wired headphones.
Xiaomi kept the 3.5mm alive in this model.
Along with an FM radio and Infrared remote you'll have extra options that's missing on Apple's budget model.

Honest Pricing

In Europe, the 64GB version of the iPhone SE is listed for 489 euro,
which is a great price for an Apple device.
As soon as you want more GBs to store your files the price will increase sky high.
The 128GB version will cost an additional €50 (€539),
while the 256GB comes with a price tag of €659 (+€170)!!

The 64GB variant of the Mi Note 10 Lite will be available for €349, which saves you €150 vs the SE.
Want another 64GB of storage and 2GB more RAM? Add an extra €50 and still stay under €400!



Mi Note 10 vs iPhone SE 2020
Now that I compared both phones and sum up their advantage I'm curious about your opinion:

Which of the two phones do you think gives 'more value for your money'?

Actually, in Switzerland the price of these two phones is practically identical. Additional bonus for Xiaomi buyers: the Mi 10 lite is the 5G version. 5G isn't fully implemented yet, but the provider are working on it.
