Xiaomi Mi 11X Review with Pros and Cons, FAQ, and More
Xiaomi is back with a bang, newly launched Mi 11X 5G has the best specifications around Rs 30,000 price tag in India and for now, there is no other phone that can compete with Mi 10X 5G.
Still, the Xiaomi Mi 11x 5G has some Cons which we gonna talk about but before that let me tell you the Indian price of the Mi 11X 5G.
Now, let’s start with Mi 11X 5G Review.
Xiaomi Mi 11X Review
Xiaomi Mi 11X offers everything that you can think of including powerful Snapdragon 870 SoC, fast charging support, 120Hz AMOLED display, solid build quality, 5G support but it doesn’t have the best camera setup. So if you can live with an average camera then Mi 11X 5G is the best option but if you can’t compromise then take a look at Vivo X60 5G which is priced at 35k in India.
Xiaomi Mi 11X Pros and Cons
|120Hz Smooth Display||Lack of 3.5mm Headphone Jack|
|Powerful Snapdragon 870 SoC||Average Cameras|
|33W Fast Charging||Only Two 5G Bands|
|Solid Build Quality|
That was the answers you’re looking for, now let’s go deep down and see what new Xiaomi has to offer with Mi 11X 5G.
The Xiaomi Mi 11X comes with 6.67-inches 120Hz AMOLED display with 1080 x 2400 pixels resolution. To protect display, Xiaomi has used Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
There will be some people who will say, can Snapdragon 870 Processor handle a 120Hz refresh rate? and the answer is YES. There won’t be any kind of problem while scrolling the display or playing games, everything will be buttery smooth.
We have seen a display issue with Redmi Note 10 series but that problem is not here on Mi 11X because of the powerful Snapdragon 870 processor.
Also, if you’re that person who uses the phone outdoors because of work then it’s good news for you, the phone has 1300 nits of brightness which means, you can watch or do anything on Mi 11X outdoor and everything will be visible.
Overall, Mi 11X 5G has the best display under Rs 30,000 in India. There is nothing to worry about about the display. Also, it does have Widevine L1 support that means you can watch FHD+ content on the OTT platform
Xiaomi Mi 11X 5G is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC which is built on 7nm architecture and it has Adreno 650 & Octa-core (1×3.2 GHz Kryo 585 & 3×2.42 GHz Kryo 585 & 4×1.80 GHz Kryo 585) CPU inside.
It’s running on MIUI 12-based on Android 11 and it does have ads in the UI.
I have tested two snapdragons that had Snapdragon 870 SoC including OnePlus 9R & Vivo X60 5G and both of these phones performed very well. That’s the same case with Mi 11X, I haven’t seen a problem in gaming or while using the phone.
As you can see on your left side, Snapdragon 870 is an overclocked version of the Snapdragon 865 SoC. So the performance will be the same. All in all, Mi 10X 5G is a powerful smartphone at 30k because this is the only phone which has Snapdragon 870 SoC at a 30k price tag.
I have also played some games like COD Mobile, PUBG Mobile, Fortnite, and many more and all the games worked best with Snapdragon 870 processor. So if you want to play games on Mi 11X then there won’t be any problem and also, it has a 120Hz refresh rate which will help you a lot while gaming.
Overall, Snapdragon 870 SoC is powerful processor and it can handle everything.
The Xiaomi Mi 11X comes with a 48MP primary sensor, 8MP ultra-wide lens, 5MP macro lens while there is a 20MP selfie shooter. The rear cameras can shoot videos up to [email protected], and [email protected] while the front can record up to [email protected]
Xiaomi should have gone with a telephoto lens instant of a 5MP macro sensor because the macro lens can be implemented in the ultra-wide lens.
That Macro lens won’t do much, you can call it add-on that’s it.
Coming to 48MP primary lens, it does take some good quality images but considering the price tag, it doesn’t have the best image quality. The phone also has dedicated NightMode but when you use NightMode, the images lose out on details.
Here I feel, Xiaomi needs to optimize the NightMode and 48MP sensor. By the way, the image quality is not that bad but at 30k, this is not the best one.
The phone also has an 8MP ultra-wide lens and this is the same as a 48MP sensor, it takes good images in good lighting conditions but when it comes with low light or at night, the ultra-wide lens loses out on details.
One thing to note, don’t use NightMode with ultra-wide, you won’t get better imager quality, use NightMode with the primary lens only.
Talking about a 20MP selfie shooter, if you’re that person who loves to take selfies or just post stories on Instagram then Mi 11X 5G could be a good option for you.
Now keep in mind, you won’t get natural colors but the details you get with selfie is good.
Overall, considering the price tag I would say, Mi 11X 5G has an average kind of camera and if I have to rate the cameras out of 10 then I would give 7.5.
The Mi 11X 5G comes with a 4,520 mAh battery with 33W fast charging support and that 33W charger will take around 62 minutes to charge from 0% to 100%.
The battery size should have been 5,000 mAh.
Talking about battery life, the Mi 11X will last for a day but if you’re a heavy user who plays a lot of games then the phone won’t last for a day, you have to charge it at around 6 PM.
I don’t say much about battery life because it depends on a user by user. In the end, it depends on you what you do on your phone every day.
The Xiaomi Mi 11X 5G has support for Dolby Atmos and Hi-Res Audio which means the sound quality will be the best and that is the case. It has stereo speakers and it’s the best one you can get on a smartphone.
So if you’re sitting outside of your home or walking around your home, you will be able to hear audio from Mi 11X 5G.
Also, the phone does have a secondary noise cancellation microphone that will help a lot in calling. I have tested my Airtel SIM & Vodafone SIM card, and I didn’t face any problem while talking to my friends & family.
Overall, the Mi 11X has good speakers and there won’t be any problem in calling too.
Conclusion: Buy or Not?
If your budget is Rs 30,000 and if you want an all-in-all best Android smartphone then there no better option than Mi 11X 5G but if you can spend 5k more then I would say, Vivo X60 5G is a good option.
I’m not saying you to buy Vivo X60 5G, what I’m saying is, if you can spend 35k then it’s better to go with Vivo X60 but if you don’t want to spend more than 30k on a smartphone then don’t look for any other smartphone, Xiaomi Mi 11X 5G is a good option.
Do We Recommend Xiaomi Mi 11X 5G?
Hell, yes. Mi 11X 5G is the best option you can get at 30k price tag. It has everything from Powerful Processor, fast charging support, solid build, good battery life, 5G support, 120Hz AMOLED display and much more.
I know it doesn’t have the best cameras but hey, you won’t get everything at 30k, to get everything, you need to go above 30k. Still, it’s not the worst camera but it’s also not the best camera, you can call it average cameras.
