This is the entry level aka, the cheapest model of the 11 series and i’m going to run you through everything you need to know and if you enjoyed the video a like and subscribe, would be lovely so right now all the fuss is over. The flagship me 11 ultra, but the light is still worth a look, especially if you’re on a budget inside we have a clear case, a 3.5 mil adapter, so i presume no headphone jack and we’re also getting a usbc cable and a 33 watt fast charger. Now the problem is, for me at least, is that this isn’t coming to the uk, this 4g mi 11 light, is having a global launch, but not here in fact, we’re getting a me11 light 5g, which obviously is 5g and also comes with a snapdragon 780. So it’s a little bit more powerful than this, so with the mi 11 lite we’re, getting a 6.55 inch amoled full hd plus screen with a smoother 90 hertz, refresh rate, which is great to see inside. We get snapdragon g chip, nothing particularly special there, but capable enough, along with 608 gigs of ram and 128 storage around the back there’s, a 64 megapixel triple camera setup uh with a main ultra wide and a tele macro lens with a 16 megapixel selfie camera we’re. Also getting stereo speakers a side, fingerprint reader and a dual 4g sim card slot, although sadly no micro, sd support or a headphone jack, but with all that said, the highlight for me with the mi 11 lite has to be the design.
I’Ll. Tell you what, though, the first time you picked this up. You really are a little bit blown away by just how thin and light this is. It weighs 159 grams and it’s just 6.8 millimeters thick or, should i say, thin, it’s incredible. You really do have to pick this up for yourself to get a proper idea of how it feels in your hand, i know the cliche is it feels good in the hand, but it really really does and actually even putting in your pocket, you just don’t notice. It it’s so incredibly thin and light, although you do notice all the smudges and fingerprints on this mirror glass back, particularly in this black model, but it looks pretty smart it’s, quite a subtle design, but yeah bring a microfiber cloth with you or put a case on It as for the software we get xiaomi’s miui version 12 on top of android, 11 and it’s nice to use and with the faster 90 hertz refresh rate, everything feels really responsive. My only complaints really are the hefty amount of bloatware that we get pre installed. As for performance well, it’s, fine, the snapdragon 732g is about a year old now and actually in my geekbench five tests, it’s neck and neck with the even lower tier 720 g in the latest, realme 8 pro, and so i think, considering we’re getting the snapdragon 780 In the mi 11, 5g, and also phones, like the poco f3, get the brand new snapdragon 870 it’s a bit of a shame, we’re stuck with the older chip in here.
However, it is also important not to get too hung up on the specs and the different processors, because this easily handles call of duty, mobile with high settings and pretty much any game or app. I threw at it i’m also amazed that they’ve managed to cram in a 4250 milliamp hour battery into this body. There must be a little bit of magic there. I think you’ll easily get a full day of use out of this plus you can top it up with the fast 33 watt charger, but let’s talk about this camera and again like the battery. I do need a bit more time with this uh to get a good idea of how it performs in all conditions, but first impressions look good. The 64 megapixel main camera is pixel bend four into one, so we get 12 megapixel photos, although you can shoot in the full resolution. If you want, then we have an 8 megapixel ultra wide and a 5 megapixel tele macro for close up shots. So this really is just a very quick look at the mi 11 lite 4g, because didn’t send me any information about this at all and what it did send me was for the 5g model which isn’t that helpful, because it gets a different processor and isn’t exactly The same phone, so i’ve had to figure most of this out for myself just by using the phone, and so i do apologize. If i’ve made any mistakes, i will of course pin a comment with any updates or changes downsides.
Well, there’s, no headphone, jack or micro sd card support that snapdragon chip is also looking a little bit long in the snapdragon tooth we’re, also getting some adverts and bloatware on the phone, although most of those can just be hidden in a folder or removed. And finally, there is, of course, a lot of competition even from xiaomi themselves, so uh. It will be interesting how this stands out against those, but for now let me know what you think of this in the comments below for now. I only have euro pricing but it’ll start from 299.. Thank you.
