Well, the me 11x pro is now here to challenge that status quo. So the mi 11x pro is essentially a souped up variant of the may 11x. With a better processor and better cameras, of course, and so is the ico 7 legend when compared to the ico 7., so which one of these two phones is the best phone under the ps4000, my name is ashad you’re watching my smart price, and this battle is Going to be legen, wait for it, dairy legendary, but before we move on, i hope you guys are staying safe, staying inside and taking care of your loved ones as well. And if you have to head out for any reason, don’t forget to wear that mask and just to make it easier for you guys. We have a list of articles where we’ve collated, the best resources for you guys on our my smart price blog so go check. The links in the description below and while you’re at it consider subscribing the channel by hitting the red subscribe button and the bell icon right next to it, because we want to get 100k really soon. The 11 x pro is identical to the may 11x. I wish there was some form of distinction in design somewhere. After all, the 11x pro is the superior phone look at how aiku has managed to create a distinction with the seven legend, regardless i’m, really glad that xiaomi sent over the celestial silver variant of the male 11x pro for review.
Although i must say that name is a ruse it’s anything but silver, it is a gradient that changes colors when the light falls on it from different angles. It does look pretty unique compared to the 11 explorer the ico. 7 legend is fatter and heavier, but not by a lot. Both the phones are equally ergonomic and when it comes to the design, i have a soft spot for the ico. 7 legend thanks to the matte white finish. Furthermore, it feels more premium, as it includes an aluminium frame instead of a plastic one on the me11x pro another distinguishing factor of the design of the two phones is the raised camera module. However, on the ico 7 legend, the protrusion is all but a mere blip. On the contrary, the pump is more pronounced on the 11x pro. Therefore, the 11x pro also wobbles a whole lot more. In comparison all that said, the 11x pro does have a couple of functional improvements. It has a proper stereo speaker setup with grilles up top and you get the now famous infrared scanner as well there’s. One thing that is a letdown on these phones, and that is the use of a far slower, usb 2.0 type c port, but then again, xiaomi uses the same tech on a more expensive me11 ultra. Now, when it comes to the design let’s call it a tie. I think that the ico 7 legend is more attractive and premium looking, but the mi 11 x pro definitely has functional advantages and, of course, the fact that it also comes with ip53 rating, the mi 11x pro and the ico 7 legend both use an amoled panel.
A little over 6.6 inches in size, you also get support for high refresh rate 120 hertz setting hdr 10 plus and 1 300 nits of claimed peak brightness in hdr playback. Like i mentioned in my previous video of the ico, 7 legend, you do not get hdr playback on netflix, the mi 11x pro has it plus the 11x pro has another ace up its sleeve and that is memc using the video toolbox. Both the phones offer a nice and accurate color tuning. The me 11x pro does it in the natural mode, whereas the ico 7 legend does it in the professional mode fun fact. If you want to know the actual colors of the camera samples from these phones use. These modes to check it out, you get a nearly true to source representation. I ran my regular brightness test with the slider push to maximum on both the phones. Both are almost equally bright, touching close to 700 nits at peak, although in my hdr peak brightness test, the b11 x pro definitely pushed the brightness higher than the ico 7 legend, but these are merely standardized tests in real world hdr video playback on youtube. I couldn’t tell the difference between the two phones with my naked eyes. Both the phones were equally good at controlling the highlights and the shadows. However, the ico 7 legend does have one ace up its sleeve. It uses the haptic engine as a pressure sensitive trigger in games somewhat, like 3d touch on apple phones of the past, and it does work like a charm in call of duty mobile.
I mapped the triggers to crouch and jump and it really helped up my gaming experience, although i still feel that the ico 7’s memc display with upscaled 120 fps in call of duty is actually a better perk compared to the pressure sensitive. You know triggers on the ico 7 legend. I consistently was performing better in ranked matches on the ico 7 than any other phone. In fact, this has now become my call of duty phone talking about gaming. The mi 11 x pro offers a touch response rate of 360 hertz. The ico 7 legend can hit 300 hertz with an instant touch sampling rate of thousand hertz. All of this just means that you get great gaming performance now. The ico, 7 legend also uses an in display fingerprint scanner, as opposed to the side mounted fingerprint scanner on the power button of the m11x pro. Obviously, the physical scanner on the m11x pro is faster at unlocking the phone now rounding off. The multimedia experience is the speaker setup and the mini level x pro with its you know, true stereo speaker setup actually sounds louder and slightly fuller as well, but the ico 7 legend is no slouch. You can actually take a listen for yourself, Music, Laughter, Music. The one thing that clearly distinguishes the mi11x pro from the mi 11x is the 108 megapixel primary camera sensor, and it has an eight megapixel ultrawide for a secondary camera, along with the third five megapixel macro.
One on the front is a 20 megapixel shooter in comparison, the ico, 7 legends main camera is the 48 megapixel sony imx 598 one. You also get a 13 megapixel ultra wide and a 13 megapixel telephoto for portrait, which is more useful. If you ask me on the front it’s, a 16 megapixel selfie camera let’s, get down to the camera comparison, starting with the textured details, there’s, not much to tell the two apart in terms of sharpness at the center. The fine texture detail is present on both the only advantage that the me11x pro has is sharp details around the corners, but overall, both the sensors are super sharp in daylight conditions when it comes to colors. The me 11x pro is more accurate in most scenarios, especially with the deep reds, as you can tell from the sample. The ico, 7 legend makes the iphone 12 case, look pink and the zip on the earphone case as well. Plus the chess foot is not the right shade of brown either. Also the ico 7 legend tends to make warmer images by cranking up the yellows in the picture. Anyway. These are unaltered jpegs straight out of the box, something that you should know while capturing hdr images. I had a slight problem in focusing on the mi 11x pro the calendar on the front was always out of focus in my testing shots, although the dynamic range performance is good on both the phones here in the second shot, when i tap to focus on the Calendar, you can see halo lines around the numbers on the b11 x pro shot, but then again the dynamic range performance is almost as good on both in ultra white shots.
The ico 7 legend has an edge with its 13 megapixel camera, and the look it creates is more natural. It would be my pick for the better ultraviolet shooter. The ico 7 legend does have an edge with its 2x optical zoom camera for telephoto, but the 2x digital crop on the b11xpro is not too bad. In fact, it looks equally good for the most part. As for the macro, as the ico 7 legend uses the ultra wide angle camera to go close to a subject, it does get really sharp and close, eliminating the need for a dedicated macro camera, not that the mi 11 x, pro’s macro camera is a bad addition. No, in fact, it is one of the best dedicated macro cameras on a phone, but when the same can be achieved with the ultrawide shooter, what is the need for a separate one? You can use a third telephoto portrait sensor, like the ico, has right so with human shots and shots of pets. I noticed that the ico 7 legend was way better with skin tones. The me 11x pro tends to shoot up the reds, as you can clearly tell from these two samples here. These are the shots. From the primary camera mind you, the same is true in portrait shots as well. The facial totes are closer to reality. On the ico 7 legend, the edge detection is similarly good on both the phones, though. However, the ico 7 legend has an advantage with its 2x ported camera, where you get some fabulous.
Looking portraits in regular non hdr selfies, the ico 7 legend renders a very appealing natural, looking facial tone. The mi 11x pro is not bad, but it has a contrasty look that ends up darkening. My t shirt too, but against the light the hdr selfie of the mi 11x pro looks superb. Also the mi 11x pro shoots, wider, selfies selfie portraits are equally good on both when it comes to edge detection, but the ico. 7 legend has natural details and a better looking facial tone, although low light selfies, whether it is night mode or not, looks better. On the mi 11x pro coming to low light shots, the imx 598 has better low light sensitivity in regular non night mode shots compared to the 108 megapixel sensor on the milan x. Pro plus, you get generally sharper shots thanks to ois and with light mode on the ico, 7 legend introduces green chromatic aberration in the pixel correction. I, like the natural look of the b11x pro, also in the second shot. The ico 7 legend has corrected. The blue tint from my tv screen to make it look more attractive and it does, but the me 11x pro is more accurate. Looking, for example, imagine if you want to shoot a warm looking image near a table. Lamp you’d be able to trust the m11x pro to capture the scene accurately, regardless. The ico 7 legends sensor offers better light sensitivity, but the look is not ideal in low light ultra wide shots, the mi 11x pro is way better.
It offers a cleaner image. Just take a look at the floor on the ico: 7 legends shot. It has created such dirty artifacts. You can shoot up to 4k 60fps videos on the phones, both don’t offer, eis or os. In the case of the ico, 7 legend, the details and dynamic range are equally good on both sound recording is better on the mi 11x pro and the colors are more true to life. On the iphone 7 legend, you can see that the crop factor is much higher here, but of course you get stabilization because of that, but yeah the dynamic range performance used to be better on the iphone 7 legend at 4k 60 fps uh, especially when you’re looking Into uh you know something that has extremely bright highlights so yeah. So this is what it looks like, but the me 11x pro has a major advantage, and that is, it can shoot hdr videos, albeit without stabilization and limited to 4k 30 fps. Both the phones can also shoot 1080p, 30 fps ultra wide angle, videos, but only the ico. 7 legend offers stabilization again. It is such a toss up between these two for video recording. If the ico 7 legend offers better stabilization, the mi 11 x pro offers better hdr and better sound. Recording the b11 xpro can also shoot hdr videos using the front camera, which offers better dynamic range and no stabilization at 1080p 30fps, even the sound recording is better, which actually means that you don’t get stabilization if you’re shooting in hdr uh, but still i mean that’s.
Definitely an advantage over here, which is something that you cannotice from the fact that it does do better when you’re actually shooting against the light and the dynamic range performance looks better. But but the ico 7 legends facial tones continue to be better and the me 11 x pro can also shoot non hdr videos at 1080p, 60 fps. I mean it is smoother yes, but the amount of exposure jumps that happen are super. Annoying plus the facial tones are better on the ico 7 legend, which is why you need to switch on that hdr mode, but this is what it looks like look at this sort of color. In the background, what i like about the iko 7 legend is the colors of my face, looks very natural from what i can tell after testing. The cameras is the ico. 7, legend has a more well rounded camera experience compared to the mi 11x pro, which does impress with its look and video performance. So we all know by now that the ico 7 legend comes with fun touch os, whereas the mi 11 x pro comes with miui 12., and in my previous video i had made it perfectly clear that you know. I actually feel that miui 12 feels slightly more refined and more feature rich compared to fun. Touch os note that i mentioned compared to fun touch os and it is very vital for you guys to underline those words, because there is a context to why i’m saying that so don’t go on storming those comments.
For example, i just pointed out two things: you can bulk delete, apps from the home screen and the search bar is placed at the bottom in the app drawer which is far more convenient. Then you have other cool features such as floating windows, edge lighting, etc. Although fun touch has evolved a lot and for what it is worth, it is far easier to do a simple command like changing a wallpaper on fun touch just saying. Try that on miui, as for the bugs miui 12, does have some notification issues with whatsapp, which is not present on fun touch, but then again bugs are present even on oxygen, os and ios. So by now, it should come as no surprise that i actually prefer miui 12 over front touch os, but only slightly so. In fact, i think that both these operating systems need to drop the bloatware a lot and, of course, also those pesky notifications should be stopped with you, what you get from get apps and the app store if there’s one thing, we’ve learned in 2021, testing phones with Snapdragon triple eight phones, not all of them are built the same way in benchmark scores. The ico 7 legend is ahead in antutu and it is pretty similar on geekbench. But what matters here is the throttling performance in cpu throttle test. The ico 7 legend is obviously more stable. The mil 11x pro drops very quickly now what’s more intriguing is that in my 3dmark wildlife stress test, the me 11x pro kept crashing the app after it reached a certain threshold of internal heat.
In fact, the ico 7 legend got equally hot, but it never crashed the app and it kept going. I had to cool down the devices to around 10 degrees and start the test. You can see from this course here that the ico 7 legend has far better stability and it doesn’t gain as much temperature as the male 11 x pro, but the difference is not a lot. I also noticed this in regular gaming, where the ico 7 legend was more stable in a game like junction impact compared to the me 11 x pro. It is not like the 11x pro is bad on anything, but it throttles sooner that’s it. If you’re only playing call of duty, then the melee explorer is equally up to the task. You need to know that these are just my new testing based differences most folks buying the mi 11x pro will be perfectly satisfied with the performance of snapdragon 8 on this phone. Having said that, i do still think that if you’re a gamer, you should go for the ico 7 legend purely because you get that pressure. Sensitive touch buttons. Interestingly, the ico 7 ledger has a smaller 4000 mah battery, but the battery life stats are very similar to the mi 11 x. Pro you get close to 5.5 to 6 hours of screen time on both the phones, but the iphone 7 legend has a huge advantage in charging times. You can charge the phone from 0 to 100 in about 27 minutes using the 66 watt inbox charger, which is way faster than the mi 11x pro, which takes over an hour.
As for the network and radio performance on 4g networks. Both these phones are equally good, plus you get support for 4g carrier aggregation as well, but i must say that in calls the audio quality through the earpiece or slightly better on you know the male 11x pro compared to the ico, 7 legend it’s, only the ico. Seven legend is bad it’s, just that the me 11x pro is slightly noticeably better and when it comes to 5g bands and that’s, something that’s very important for a lot of folks to make that consideration for purchase between these two devices, then the ico 7 legend obviously Feels more future proof because it has already enabled a lot more bands by default compared to the m11x pro right now so after using these two phones is the ipo 7 legend still going to be my first recommendation for a 400 rupees, 40, 000. Yes, but that’s after a very careful subjective consideration, it’s not going to be the case for everybody, and that will vary from case to case. In fact, i think for a lot of folks. The me 11x pro is going to be a great option. It’S got this nice and compact design and, of course, the multimedia performance is better than the ico. 7 legend and, more importantly, the me brand has existed for a longer time. Therefore, the service network is slightly more widespread compared to aiku, which is of course now under vivo, but there’s still a lot of work to be done now.
Why do i prefer the iko 7 legend, because i still think that this is the more attractive design and it offers better performance for sure and a more well rounded camera experience now notice. That i’m saying well rounded again underline those words before you storm the comments. Without context, in any case i’m, not dissuading you from storming the comments, in fact, i really want you guys to tell me what you think of this video and, of course, these two phones as well, and if you have any other questions which i can answer in The comment section below – i hope you guys enjoyed this video until next time. This is aisha from mysmartprice signing off goodbye and godspeed.
