One of the fastest growing cell phone brands in recent years, the Chinese

Xiaomi

, began taking its

first steps officially in the country

with three models of its cheapest family:

Redmi Note 10 5G, Redmi Note 10s and Redmi Note 10 Pro

.

The equipment is part of the catalog that 

Xiaomi

introduced in recent weeks, after

announcing that it will begin to manufacture its products in Tierra del Fuego

, as part of the alliance with the national holding company

Etercor-Solnik

, which will also be in charge of the distribution to through various official sales channels.

The main differences

between the Redmi are in the size of the screen and its technology

.

Although they share the same DotDisplay FHD + technology, the Redmi Note 10 5G and the intermediate model Redmi Note10s differ in the size of the display -6.43 against 6.5 inches- and the refresh rate of 90Hz

 plays in favor of the cheaper version of the series.

For its part, Redmi Note 10 Pro has a

6.67-inch AMOLED panel and a refresh rate of 120Hz

, like that of the recent iPhone 13 Pro Max.

This means that the screen is updated 120 times per second, whether you are playing or scrolling through the content of an internet site, so the look and feel of fluidity is extreme.

Another fact to take into account is the

processing speed

of these smartphones.

While one can infer that the top model Redmi Note 10 Pro is the fastest with its 8GB of RAM, its Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G chip loses to the Mediatek Helio G95 of the Redmi Note 10s in comparison.  

In the section of

the cameras,

the point in favor, obviously, is for the prominent member of the family.

The 108 megapixel camera of the Redmi Note 10 Pro captures images to stand out just by

activating the night mode

and its macro lens makes images more accurate with up to 2 centimeters away from the object than the rest of the Redmi Note.

It also has an interesting

"Clone" function

that can be used to create composite images or videos.

You just have to capture the same subject and replicate it in different parts of a scene, giving the feeling that there really are several.

However, this feature is not as easy to use as it sounds:

it takes a clean background and steady hands

to try good shots.


Finally, a very important section for the average user who is used to giving the phone multiple uses:

battery performance

.


In the case of the Pro version, the

5020 mAh battery life

provides up to two days with normal to low usage.

Those who use to generate content on networks, watch videos and play with their cell phones will see it reduced to just one day or less.

Of course, the standard 33 W fast charge function 

helps to recover 59% of charge in just 30 minutes

.

For their part, the Redmi Note 10 5G and 10s models, whose batteries are 5000 mAH, can deliver 496 hours of standby, 16 hours playing, 178 hours of music and 22 hours of video with normal use.

The growth of Chinese cell phones

According to the research firm "Counterpoint", the smartphone shipments figures during 2020 showed that the Chinese companies

Huawei and Xiaomi remained in third and fourth place in Latin America,

scoring a market share of 7.5 and 6, 2 percent, respectively.

During the second quarter of 2021, the general shipment of smartphones to Latin America showed an increase of 41.8 percent year-on-year, and the premium version "MI" captured third place with 11.4 percent, while in the same period the previous year was 4.9 percent.

This allowed the brand to become the third most important actor in the Latin American region, where it has been gaining admirable ground in some countries such as Peru, where it has positioned itself as number one;

and the second place in Colombia and Chile.

In Argentina, Samsung and Motorola still account for 90% of the smartphone market

.

Industry analysts agree that Chinese teams, due to their value for money, are attractive to entrepreneurs who, due to the situation of the pandemic, have had to learn to use digital commerce tools to promote their products, especially through social networks.
