Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro Review

62

If you’re looking for a new smartphone with the latest 5G connectivity, look no further than the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro. It offers excellent design, solid performance, and a decent camera at a competitive price.

Its 108-MP primary camera is a significant upgrade from the base model, and it cuts a good figure in both bright and dim light. But its 8-MP wide-angle sensor is a bit of a letdown.

Camera

The Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro has your typical mid-range triple camera setup on the back. It packs a 108MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultrawide, and a 2MP depth camera.

While the camera doesn’t scream out a re-upgrade over last year’s Mi 10 Pro, it delivers better photos in bright light than before and performs better in video capture. Its images are surprisingly good and look even better than other phones.

We also like that the camera stretches to 5X optical zoom, an excellent option for taking close-up photos of your subjects without compromising on detail or clarity. However, the digital zoom mode doesn’t offer lossless zoom and is prone to oversharpening in some lighting conditions.

Battery

The Mi 11 Pro has a 4,600mAh battery that offers good power to run all the features. However, it doesn’t last as long as you expect from a phone in this class.

While this isn’t a deal-breaker, you must be conscious of how often you charge your device. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro charges quickly, with 55W wired and 50W wireless top-ups allowing you to go from empty to full in around half an hour.

In addition, the Mi 11 Pro boasts some interesting battery tech, incorporating silicon-oxygen anode batteries instead of traditional lithium-ion ones. It’s a new technology that enables the batteries to be thinner and charge faster than usual.

Performance

The Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro is a flagship-class phone that’s very easy to use, with excellent performance and an impressive display. It comes with a Snapdragon 888 processor and 8GB of RAM, which makes it one of the fastest Android phones you can buy today.

The display on the Mi 11 Pro has a high resolution and fast refresh rate, which make it an excellent choice for watching videos and playing games. It also has many useful features like screen HDR and different brightness modes.

The Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro is a top-tier smartphone with a great camera, a long battery life, and fast charging. It’s also great value for the money.

Design

Xiaomi has a long history of creating a joy-to-use smartphone. And the design of the Mi 11 Pro is no exception.

Despite the fact that it is a little chunkier than the Note 10 Pro, it still feels comfortable to hold in one hand thanks to its 164.2 x 76.1 x 8.1mm dimensions and squared edges. And, unlike the OnePlus 5T, it doesn’t get quite as smudged by fingerprints thanks to a matte finish.

It’s powered by a 5nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chip and 12GB LPDDR5 RAM for outstanding overall performance when opening apps, flipping through menus, or running home screens. It also features 128GB/256GB storage to store your contacts, photos, and apps.
