This is ranjit and in this video let’s do the unboxing and have a first look at this uh xiaomi’s me, 11 xs, smartphone and guys you could say this is sort of a value flagship. This comes with the new snapdragon 870 and the base variant that i purchased guys from amazon is for 30 000.. This comes with six gigabytes of ram there’s, also one more variant that comes with eight gigabytes of ram that’s for 32, 000 and again guys i’ll leave the links of amazon in the description. So if you’re buying use my link so let’s open this up – and here as you can see, it says, it’s part by the snapdragon 870, it has a super ram unless that’s a 120 hertz screen and a triple camera setup, that’s a 48 megapixel that’s, the main We look at the camera because i’m a little bit skeptical, because after the camera performance of this oneplus 9r, this has to be one of the most rubbish cameras for 14000 let’s see if this uh camera is better than the oneplus 9r. In fact, i compared it with the iq7. The iq camera blew uh the oneplus out of the park anyways the battery is a 4520 milliamp hour battery it’ll be interesting to see how it handles, because what i have noticed is that even the snapdragon 870 chip is slightly on the hottest side. So we’ll see that let’s open this up and have a look so here it is, and it says, designed by xiaomi, of course, a sim ejector tool and we do get a case and what is this? This is something new, oh wow wow.
I did not expect this because we are not getting this dongle these days with almost any smartphone uh. Even the flagships have stopped moving so kudos to xiaomi for doing that, at least they are giving that so we even get a case so that’s nice actually because these days, otherwise the unboxing of the flagship, if you notice the iphones and stuff hardly there anything except The phone, so you get the case also it’s a. What do you say, plasticky, transparent case uh will do the job uh initially, but guys if you’re buying this phone invest in an under quality case. Frank opinion. Let’S just keep that, and here is the handset itself. I opted for the black one, guys, whatever i could order uh, i just clicked on it, and this is uh not mad. Guys it’s, like glossy in fact, looks like a glass back and you can look at it like a mirror, so very glossy. So if you use it without the fingerprint, what is the case will be a lot of fingerprints actually, but we have a triple camera here on it: uh 48 megapixel, eight megapixel ultra wide, then five megapixel dsl is a telephoto macro kind of a thing, but no Ois guys on this one and the big difference with the uh me11x pro is that that comes with the snapdragon 888 and it has a 108 megapixel main camera, but that’s, almost 10, 000 rupees, more so let’s see and we get uh this big brick guys.
So i like it – this is actually a 33 watt fast charger in the box. So i appreciate that at least giving the fast charger – and this will be your type – a to type c. Uh, cable use this k, cable for the fastest charging, so i’ll just keep these things to the side and let’s look at the handset itself now and uh first impressions. It does not feel heavy guys so looks like nice weight, distribution, guys and it’s 6.67 inch screen that it is having, and this one also supposed to have stereo speakers. So we have two vents over here and one is actually the ir blaster over here, so it’s. Hidden so it’s there and we have the volume rockers power on off button. The fingerprint scanner is here within this one and i don’t mind those guys after using a lot of smartphones, because what happens is in display fingerprint scanner if they’re not very sensitive it’s irritating. But this your finger just reaches here. So i personally don’t mind it, but some people want in display this does not have in display fingerprint scanner. Anyways bottom will be that second speaker uh your main microphone, your type c port and your. What do you say? A storage let’s see, i don’t think so it will have any hybrid or anything, but let’s see yes, no hybrid guys, but one thing is surprising. I don’t know if they’ll add that in the later part, as of now amazon, we have two variants.
One is six gigabytes of ram and other is eight gigabytes of ram, but both of them have just 128 gigabytes of internal storage. There is no variant of 256 and if you don’t have a micro sd card expansion, they should have also introduced a 256 gigabyte variant. In my frank opinion, but that’s what we get – and here we have nothing back as i have totally and again guys. This is already a fingerprint back, but, as i’ve told you it’s like a mirror, so use it with the case otherwise, within what two minutes. This is the situation, so let me just power this on and guys i’ll set it up, and then we will continue so guys. I have set up this device also taken quite a few sample. Shots used it for about two hours now runs benchmarks, so let’s have a closer look at the same now and again, i’ve installed some apps, for example, twitter i’ve just installed on it. Also there was one big ot update. I had applied that again guys follow me on twitter at geeky ranjit. If you want to know on background what’s happening, i post a lot of stuff over there and guys if you haven’t, subscribed to this youtube channel, hit that subscribe button and hit that, like button. Many experts told me i don’t say that enough, so anyways uh, so i’ve installed antutu, also and all those things and again, a typical miui stuff that you’re going to get you get the app tray.
I haven’t uninstalled any of the junk where that is installed android. I have installed adroad i’ve installed, but these are other apps, prime, etc were pre installed, and that way i would say not a lot of junk fare is there. There is some, but not too much of junk where that was pre installed on this smartphone. Some of the usual uh netflix and stuff, prime video and all these things, but these are sort of useful apps, not totally junk like tuk, tuk, pak and all those things. So that way – and yes this me credit me – pay you can’t uninstall, some of them so but again, if you’re buying a phone with the me ui, you’re gon na get this so that’s what it is uh, so let’s go under the hood over here, quick toggles And the thing is that by default i don’t know uh it sports that 120 hertz amoled screen, but it was set to 60 hertz. So i have set it to 120, so that’s, why it’s very smooth 60 hertz? I was noticing some uh jitters, but here i just went here and if i go to the refresh rate, i’ve set it to 120, and here i would say, it’s performing very well and again. If you go to about the phone already, i ran that update and right now, it’s on that 12.04 and roughly you should get about what you say: 23 gigabytes is now used because i’ve installed, some apps roughly about 21 gigabytes will be actually uh, uh used.
So that’s, regarding the storage that you are getting and this we have the fingerprint by default guys you have to actually press it, but you can change it to just if you put your finger it unlocks and, as you can see very responsive. So that way, i would say it’s a very responsive, fingerprint scanner that – and i i don’t, have any complaints, guys and it’s too early to judge about ram management and all those things. But i also tried to run some benchmarks and let me actually show you uh. The strange thing was that i also installed this geekbench and the problem with geekbench is that it runs it, but when it tries to show the score, the app just crashes and it’s, just not me, some other users also have complaint, but luckily antutu i could uh Run on this one – and i also have the oneplus 9r, iran and q2 even on that one, to give you an idea um here – and this is the iq7 – not the legend regular, i could seven all of these have the same processor guys so let’s see the Scores and uh here, as you can see uh. This is the me11 11x. This surprisingly got in the middle, i would say the score: if we look at it, this is in the middle. The oneplus r got the least score and in fact the oneplus r, if you notice this, is important, guys notice this.
Let me increase the brightness uh when i run the benchmark heat it up the most to 5.5 degrees celsius. This is the me 11x. This increased by 4.5 degrees celsius, but when i run the same benchmark on this iq7, this increased only by 3.3 degrees celsius and this actually got the highest score. Uh cpu, actually uh. The one plus 9r got the highest second, this. Third, this but other areas, as you can see, uh uh these two actually got better scores than actually the one plus r so that’s regarding the android scores that we got. But i don’t like the fact that xiaomi is doing some trickery and when i try to run this geekbench 5, they are artificially crashing it so that we don’t know this course. I could run geekbench on both the oneplus and even the iphone 7 without any issues. So that’s what it is and within the ui again no lag that i’ve noticed and guys again it’s a xiaomi smartphone. So you get that initial screen of personalization and all these things to disable everything user experience. And all of this, i did that and also it still has this annoying thing known as gets app. So it will send you notifications, but let’s. Try to locate that gets app here and click over here go to the app info and from the notifications by default. It’S, yes, please disable this. Otherwise you will get unnecessary notifications to install this app that app, so just remove that and it’s been just two hours.
I did not get any notifications or stuff like that. This is antutu adroid i’ve installed and again it has some stuff, for example, this cleaner and all this. These are typical, xiaomi stuff and you can go to the more settings and show you can remove these notification. As you can see here all these things so by default, you will have to do it because it’s running on our miui, as i’ve told you and it’s uh miui 12 uh running on android version 11 that we have an android security update is april. So that way, it’s nice, so typical me, ui and within the ui guys i haven’t noticed any lag yet and let’s also check the weight because, as i’ve told you, i feel the weight balance is good on this smartphone let’s see yeah let’s see how much does It weigh so 196, so that’s, actually nice, guys relatively less than 200 grams, so that’s actually a nice thing, but i mean that is a fingerprint magnet and now let’s also look at the. What do you say, camera i’ve taken some sample shots against uh, stay tuned and uh have a look, but here is the camera interface by default. This photo and you can go to the wide angle, it’s actually pretty wide that’s. What i like about this one – and this is digital zoom, guys and again we have the portrait mode. What i also like about the front facing camera is, if you notice how wide it is this front facing camera.
That was a big surprise to me, uh, because i was also testing the oneplus 9r and in that one the front facing camera is simply not that wide. So let me do one thing: let me actually show you some sample shots that i’ve taken with this one. So these were the samples taken with the rear facing camera and semi indoor conditions. As you can see, this was taken in artificial lighting in my office. This is a regular shot, and this was with that ultra wide angle. Again, this was a regular shot, and this was with that ultra wide angle. Now moving to human subjects, this is in the balcony natural lighting uh. This was at the portrait mode, but indoors. I felt that the sharpness was not there, as you can see uh. This is with the ultra wide, very soft again. This is an artificial lighting, not that great. These are taken in my office situation and again you notice that softness in the picture not super sharp, but you could just say decent gets the job done, but i also had the oneplus so let’s compare these were taken in my office and when we zoom in The mi 11x is certainly sharper, as you can see. This was taken in the normal shot. Both are very close to each other, but when we move to the portrait mode, i feel the mi 11x is more natural. The oneplus 9r picture looks artificial. This was taken in dull lighting conditions and both did a very average job, but when we zoom in still the mi 11x has slight more detail in this indoor shot.
Both of them did a very average job, but certainly the mili 11x is way sharper, so guys uh, that’s it for now for the unboxing and first look at the same 11x, i would say certainly an interesting device and guys regarding 5g, i completely forgot the variant That is officially sold in india, supports just two 5g bands, much better than some of the other phones. For example, the oneplus 9r supports only one band, but again it’s. Just two 5g brands want to be very clear about the same so for the price you can get it for about 28. 000. If you use the credit card, it’s, not a bad phone, but again, i would say, have realistic expectations in terms of camera. I would say the iq 7’s camera is better than this one. But, overall, if you are okay with this miui stuff, then i would say it’s a fine phone, but again guys. I will be testing this one a little bit more because i have heard from users that this wall also has some heating issues. If you stress it, so i need to test that so again, stay tuned to my channel and guys, if you’re still not subscribed to the youtube channel hit that subscribe button, anyways, guys that’s it for now take care catch.
