Does realme, poco have bloatware?

Realme does have a bit of lockscreen advertisement but that can be disabled. It only has some nagware- Often useless notifications coming from Browser and has its own annoying App Centre. You can disable these apps, but not uninstall. So overall realme has No to Medium Bloat, but it is completely usable.

Poco has MiUi But from what i have seen, it has no bloatware. I need confirmation on latest status of ads on Poco.

The service centers for poco and realme is only handful in Bangalore.

On the other hand MI has so many service centers. That's the reason I was thinking of Note 10s

I think Mi and Poco has same service centres.

I dont know the case with realme though. There is a slight chance they may operate same service centre for Oppo vivo and OnePlus but not sure.
 
Redmi Note 10 Pro
Spend time disabling ads on MIUI. I did it on a relative, RN10 recently, works w/o any annoyance from what I know.

I bought the Note 10, as Note 10 pro is longer.

I cannot find the Mi mover in settings. How did you transfer from the old phone?
