Mi 11 Series

What's up Xiaomi Fans!

I had a great time testing the Mi 11 Ultra for a couple of weeks. I wish I could get one for my own but it was too pricey for me. Don't get me wrong the phone is perfect.

Now I have this Mi 11i as known as Mi 11x Pro in India and here are my thoughts on this phone.  Alright let's get started with the unboxing.

Inside the box we can find the
  • Sim ejector Pin
  • User guide and warranty card
  • Protective case
  • Type-C to 3.5 mm Headphone Adapter
  • Mi 11i
  • USB Type-c Cable
  • 33w power adapter

First I want to talk about is the design. It is very light and thin which only weights: 196g and thickness: 7.8mm, the height: 163.7mm and width: 76.4mm.

This is the cosmic black and I must say it is very reflective.  At the back you can  find the camera panel which houses the triple rear cameras with the flash and microphone. The back is a little curve on the side which easy to hold and grip.

The Front screen is flat corning gorilla glass 5 with a tiny camera Dot. An yes the Dot is very tiny. I usually prefer curved screens but this is beautiful. The bezzle are not too thick which give you a good view of the screen.

At the side we have we have the volume buttons and the arc side fingerprint sensor.

At the bottom we have the speaker, microphone, Type-c port and  dual nano sim tray. Same as the other Mi 11 series this does not come with an sd card slot. At the top we have the speaker , the IR blaster and microphone.

This is an IP53, dust and splash resistant and pre-installed with the Android 11 with Miui 12.

The Mi 11i has been call 'All STar Display' and let me show you how good the display is
  • FHD+ 6.67“ AMOLED DotDisplay
  • with Samsung E4 light emitting material
  • 2400x1080 resolution
  • TrueColor display
  • Wide Color gamut
  • Peak Brightness of 1300 nits
  • Smooth refresh rate of 120 Hz
  • with a 360 Hz touch sampling rate one of the best responses when gaming

It has Dual speakers offer superior surround sound. For the first time with Dolby Atmos® technology, bringing you an immersive audio experience.

The Mi 11i also runs with the Snapdragon 888 same as the Mi 11 Ultra and also with the same CPU  and GPU with a 6th Gen AI Engine and X60 modem for super fast 5G connectivity so don't have any doubts on its performance with an Antutu Benchmark score of 683,031. The one I have here is an 8 RAM  with 256GB internal memory. It also is a LPDDR5 + UFS 3.1 for fast file transfer and saving. This phone can withstand heavy gaming and everything you throw at it.

It has been raining here in London for the past weeks but still manage to get some great shots. These are just random point and shoot pictures but still pretty good.

The main camera is 108MP main camera with f/1.75 with 0.7μm, 9-in-1 binning into one large 2.1μm pixel and 1/1.52” sensor size and 7p lens.

8MP ultra-wide camera, f/2.2, FOV 119°

5MP telemacro camera, f/2.4, AF (3cm-7cm)

Click here to see the full review video with video samples.

It also has the fun camera feature like the Mi 11 and the Mi 11 Ultra
  • One-Click AI Cinema
  • Magic Zoom
  • Slow Shutter
  • Time Freeze
  • Night Time-lapse,
  • Parallel World
  • Freeze Frame Video

At the back it also has a powerful microphone which brings us to another feature, the Audio Zoom.

The 20MP front camera takes impressive quality with its f/2.45, 0.8μm pixel size, 1.6μm 4-in-1 large pixel.

It also has a Bluetooth 5.2, X-axis linear motor, 360° ambient light sensor and Color temperature sensor.

This is a great choice and it is already a perfect all around phone without spending a huge buck.
