Xiaomi Mi 11 Review

The Xiaomi Mi 11 is perhaps of the best exceptional telephone you ought to think about purchasing, as it’s well-specced in pretty much every division: it has super-quick handling, a high screen goal with additional presentation modes, and a few camera modes and elements the opposition needs. It’s simply a disgrace that the shoddy battery duration and inconsistent unique finger impression scanners deface the experience.


From the front, the Xiaomi Mi 11 looks like numerous other Android leads, however, it’s as yet a looker. It’s separate by its quad-bend show, which gives the telephone a snazzy profile that gets the light appealingly.

The camera knock in the upper left corner misleads me, since its three-section structure looks jumbled, regardless of whether the adjusted square shape and silver ring around the primary focal point look the business in a good way.

It doesn’t help that the remainder of the back is plain beside logos and administrative text toward the base, which just makes it simpler for your eye to choose the cameras.

The Xiaomi Mi 11 screen’s made of Gorilla Glass Victus, a similar glass tracked down on the Galaxy S21, so you shouldn’t need to stress a lot over little scratches showing up unintentionally. You’ll be more cautious about uncovering the Mi 11 to water and residue however; while Xiaomi says the telephone is water-safe, it doesn’t have an authority IP rating.

U.K. customers have a decision on three fundamental tones: plain white, Midnight Gray, and Horizon Blue. The dim of my survey unit looks tasteful with its glossy silk style finish (besides every one of the fingerprints it gets), although I like how the blue and white add somewhat more visual interest to the telephone.

Cost and Release Date

You can purchase the Xiaomi Mi 11 with either 128GB capacity or 256GB – the previous expenses are generally $1,040, and the last option is around $1,110. A US discharge presumably isn’t on the cards, as Xiaomi doesn’t sell its telephones there.

For setting the Mi 11 Lite 5G expenses around $550, the 11T is about $690, the 11T Pro will hamper you around $830 and the Mi 11 Ultra kicks the ball way higher, costing generally $1,600.

The Mi 10 was sent off at generally $1,000 and the Samsung Galaxy S21, the Mi 11’s nearest contemporary adversary, begins at $799, so the Mi 11 doesn’t shift excessively far from what we anticipated.


On the off chance that the Mi 11 is an enormous telephone, you have the 6.81in the presentation to fault – or thank.

This significant screen is an AMOLED board with a thin bezel because of the quad-bending I’ve previously referenced and hindered exclusively by a little corner poke hole selfie camera.

With a 120Hz revive rate and WQHD+ goal (1440 x 3200, which nets a great pixel thickness of 515ppi) it’s challenging to blame the screen specs here, and it looks fabulous in most use cases. Furthermore, indeed, you can utilize that high invigorate rate and max goal all the while.

Colors are brilliant and dynamic, and the difference is strong as well, while HDR10+ support guarantees that it’s an able presentation for video playback as well.

Assuming that there’s one shortcoming it’s that maximum brilliance is somewhat low. This will not frequently represent an issue, however, I stress that in splendid daylight (which the UK hasn’t had quite a bit of recently) permeability could endure. It likewise keeps down HDR execution, with blacks imploding together a piece on occasion – anticipate that the HDR should be great, yet entirely maybe not extraordinary.

While the cameras address an unassuming redesign over the Mi 10, basically contrasted with the large updates in different offices, there are a couple of key changes that further develop the photography experience here.

The principal snapper is 108MP f/1.9 – this is the fifth Xiaomi telephone to utilize such a high-res sensor, and they’ve all pre-owned this equivalent Samsung one. That doesn’t mean photographs look the very same as in the past, however, as the aftereffects of our testing appeared to be somewhat better, with further developed contrast and a generally lighter tone. This is logical the aftereffect of further developed AI enhancement.

We took our best Mi 11 pictures in sufficiently bright conditions, and low-light photographs were somewhat loud but positively still usable. This is logical thanks to ‘pixel binning’, in which four pixels are joined into one, to make a 27MP camera that ‘sees’ all the more light. We’ve created an inside and out manual for pixel binning if you have any desire to become familiar with how this functions.

The optional camera is a 13MP f/2.4 super wide snapper, which we’ve seen Xiaomi use in its cell phones starting from the beginning of recorded history (all things considered, mid-2020). As in the past, it helps take to a greater extent a subject, and we found it took a more splendid picture as well. Photographs are lower-goal however, and frequently don’t have the difference of snaps from the principal camera.

The last camera is a 5MP f/2.4 ‘telemacro’ camera, and it’s positively the superstar. Large scale focal points are utilized for close-up pictures of subjects, yet that ‘tele-‘ prefix indicates that the focal point is intended for snapping distant articles – set up that, and it’s a camera intended to take pictures of little articles from (somewhat) far away – it’s enacted when you turn on Super Macro mode.

This tackles a major issue with large-scale focal points on cell phones, which is that when you have sufficiently close to see the unpredictable subtleties in an item, you’ve hindered all the normal light with the actual telephone.

We had a great time taking gorgeous photographs of close-up subtleties on things like plants, staples, and textures we composed an entire component on it. Pictures are brilliant and genuinely all-around nitty gritty (at any rate, contrasted with pictures from other large-scale snappers on telephones), and the mode is exceptionally simple to utilize.

Xiaomi generally holds fax, or zoom, cameras for its ‘Star’ models, and that is the situation here, as there’s no focal point for optical zoom. You can carefully zoom up to 30x, however, the further you zoom the lower the nature of the picture, and past 5x pictures are excessively grainy.

The front of the telephone sports a 20MP f/2.2 camera for selfies, and this is one more snapper we’ve seen in past Xiaomi handsets. Pictures look great, however, you ought to likely Portrait mode with this camera, as this changes the contrast, helps features, and obscures shadows to make a seriously striking shot. ‘Bokeh’ foundation obscure in this mode by and large looked precise, even though pieces of our hair were now and again obscured as well.


the Xiaomi Mi 11 highlights a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. While you get the most recent chipset Qualcomm brings to the table, you just have 8GB RAM, which fails to measure up to the 12GB you can now find on top-performing Androids like the Galaxy S21 Ultra or Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.

It’s still enough for the Xiaomi to dazzle. On the Geekbench 5 general benchmark, the Mi 11 scored 1,112 on the single center area and 3,379 on the multi-center segment. The essential Galaxy S21 just oversees 1,048 and 3,302 separately.

The Galaxy S21 Plus, which utilizes a similar chip and RAM limit, beat the Mi 11’s single center score with 1,116, yet the Mi 11 defeated the S21 Plus’ multicore score of 3,300. The S21 Ultra effectively beats the Mi 11 on the two tests, however, enjoys a simple benefit thanks to 12GB of RAM.

  • Excellent macro photography
  • Above-average specifications for the pricing
  • Extremely nice curved QHD display with a customizable refresh rate.
  • Strong chipset
  • Temporary fingerprint scanner
  • The battery life is insufficient.
  • No telephoto lens

In 3D Mark’s Wild Life illustrations test, the Mi 11 accomplished a score of 5,676, which midpoints to 34 edges each second. That beat the Galaxy S21’s 5,504 point/33 FPS result while completing following the Galaxy S21 Plus (5,650/34 FPS).

The Mi 11’s 480Hz touch testing rate permits the showcase to respond quicker to taps than the typical telephone’s.

There’s likewise a fume cooling chamber incorporated into the Mi 11, which is the reason why I didn’t see the telephone heat up even in the wake of evaluating every one of the games I downloaded, or during the benchmark tests. In any event, energizing the telephone didn’t observably expand the temperature of the packaging.

Battery and charging

With a 4600mAh cell, battery duration in the Mi 11 is good, yet maybe not quite as remarkable as different components of the telephone.

It dependably endures an entire day of purpose, yet it’ll be showing low to the time it arrives, so you will probably have to charge the telephone every day. That is fine when it’s new, yet remember that with battery debasement almost certainly, inside a few years of purpose it will not exactly come to twilight so dependably.

The solace here is that charging speeds are remarkable. Xiaomi ships the telephone with a 55W USB-C charger in Europe (in contrast to in China, where it followed Apple in dumping the in-box fitting) and it figured out how to top the telephone up to 79% in a short time, with a full charge not taking significantly longer.

The Mi 11 likewise upholds 50W remote charging, yet remember that you’ll need to purchase the charger independently, and Xiaomi hasn’t yet affirmed the amount it will charge for a viable charging cushion to capitalize on the velocities – the quickest the organization sells in the UK right currently is a 20W cushion.

If you wouldn’t fret more slow paces, the Mi 11 is viable with existing chargers that utilize the Qi remote norm (regularly a lot more slow at 5W or 10W). It likewise offers 10W converse remote charging for earphones and different adornments.


The Mi 11 is a phenomenal piece of equipment at the cost. The quickest chipset around, a wonderful presentation, and solid cameras are bundled inside an exquisite piece of the modern plan.

Some will miss the IP rating, however, for me the greater disadvantages are the decision of a full scale over a zooming focal point, the main typical battery duration, and a product experience that falls behind the key opponents.
