Its rival, Redmi Note 10S, flaunts almost the same display specs. The only difference is that the phone packs an AMOLED display of 6.43-inch, which is clearly a winner here. 

AMOLED panels feature better colour reproduction and viewing angles.

Hardware and Software Specs

The smartphones ship with Android 11OS out-of-the-box.

Battery Details

Redmi Note 10S packs a similar battery of 5,000mAh as Realme Narzo 30; the only difference is the fast charging support.
