It also comes with a cheaper price of 14 990 pesos, as i’ve mentioned in our unboxing video. This is the most affordable phone in the mi 11 series that you can get, but of course, it’s got a few drawbacks from its flagship grade, siblings and even to its 5g edition, so we’ve been using it for more than a week now and here’s what we Think, Music! Okay, when xiaomi said light, they probably meant it literally as well as this device is seriously lightweight at 157 grams it’s, even lighter than most budget smartphones today, which makes it a bit awkward to hold as someone who’s used to hefty phones. It takes some getting used to, especially if you have large hands, then again, it doesn’t give a cheap impression at all. Its frosted glass back and dazzling design gives off an elegant touch, that’s a lot similar to the other higher models in the mi 11 series. What sets it apart, though, is its flat structure, which doesn’t really bother us that much as its lightweight makes it easy to grip. We also like how it doesn’t attract a lot of fingerprint smudges. The unit we have is in the bubblegum blue colorway, and this 4g version is also available in boba black and peach pink, its camera module inherits the square shaped me11 design with a slim bump that can be fixed when topped with a case. It has three lenses in it, together with the led flash then at the bottom, part of the rear is some xiaomi branding for buttons and ports there’s, nothing on the left side, but on the right are the volume rocker and the slightly curved power button, which doubles As a fingerprint scanner up top there’s, an ir blaster and a secondary microphone while at the bottom, are the loudspeaker, usb type c, port main microphone and a hybrid card slot for either two nano sim cards or one nano sim, plus a micro sd card.
As you can see, there’s no 3.5 millimeter headphone port here, but we do get a free type c to headphone jack adapter. In the box focusing on display the xiaomi mi 11 lite is fitted with a 6.55 inch amoled screen with a resolution of 2400 by 1080 pixels and a pixel density of 402 pixels per inch. It doesn’t have some fancy curved sides like its siblings, but we do still get a 240 hertz touch sampling rate and up to 90hz refresh rate that you can tone down to 60hz. If you want to save battery life, noticeably the bezels all around are slim and on the upper right side, resides the selfie camera. Of course, on top of the display you can find the call speaker. We get corning gorilla glass, 5 for protection and i guess it’s worth mentioning that the 5g edition gets a layer of gorilla glass 6.. Also, this lte version supports hdr10, while the 5g one supports hdr, 10 plus so there’s. Some slight difference either way if we’re not gon na compare this amoled display looks vibrant on its own, with accurate, colors and inky blacks. It supports a 10 bit color as well, so it can display up to 1.7 billion colors, which is something that we can find in a few flagship smartphones. Today, in the display settings you can switch between the usual light mode or dark mode turn on sunlight mode to adjust the brightness to intense ambient light when the automatic brightness is off and you can even take advantage of the weaving mode which asides from reducing the Amount of blue light: it has a paper mode that gives an additional paper texture for your reading sessions.
You can also change the color scheme to the original, saturated and auto option that automatically blends the colors, based on your current lighting. The always on display feature is also available and it is packed with numerous themes that are all customizable. As for audio quality, its dual speakers can get loud enough for a medium sized room and it’s actually outstanding for a mid range device, there’s clarity and noticeable highs and mids. However, don’t expect much base on it running the software is xiaomi’s miui, 12 that’s based on android 11, and this one features a familiar organized interface that offers a number of customization options. It still comes with a few ads and pre installed. Apps such as google, facebook, netflix and some xiaomi proprietary apps that you can uninstall if you don’t plan on using them now, miui 12 also provides the option to use either the usual android drop down notification and control center format or the newer style that’s. A lot similar to the ios design, then there’s the usual option to navigate with gestures or the on display buttons, and you can also use an app drawer if you prefer by the way. If you want to keep things simple, you can turn on the light mode launcher in the home screen options with an ir blaster on board. You can use the mi 11 lite as a universal remote via the me remote, app that’s already pre installed. Meanwhile, other notable features include second space, video toolbox, floating window, one handed mode and digital well being and parental controls.
Out of the 128 gigabytes of eternal storage, we get a usable 111 gigabytes, that’s expandable up to 512 gigabytes through the hybrid card slot under the hood. This lte emi 11 lite is equipped with a qualcomm snapdragon 732g chipset, together with an adreno, 618 gpu and 8 gigabytes of ram. It is lower compared to other smartphones in the mi 11 series, but nonetheless it runs smoothly for basic tasks such as video streaming web and social media, browsing messaging and even recording videos for gaming. It can run heavy titles, such as genji impact asphalt, 9 and pubg mobile steadily, with some occasional frame drops every now, and then you can turn on the game turbo for a boosted gaming experience or switch the graphic settings to the lowest available for better optimization. If you want to see the results, we got in our standard benchmark, apps we’ll, flash them now, Music. As for biometrics, you can unlock the device via facial recognition and the side mounted fingerprint scanner, both work, snappy and reliable, but surely expect the physical fingerprint sensor to work faster connectivity, wise it’s, ready with dual sim 4g lte wi fi, bluetooth, 5.1, gps, android, auto screencast And nfc, with a slim form factor the mi 11 lite is loaded with a decent 4250 milliamp hour battery with 33 watts fast charging. It comes with a complete charger in the package that can juice up the device within an r from zero to a hundred percent.
We ran it through the pc mark’s battery test under a 90 hertz display, and it got a fair 12 hours and 54 minutes. Meanwhile, in our standard video loop test, which entails playing a 1080p video on loop at 50, brightness, zero percent volume and airplane mode turned on the mi 11 light yielded a very good 21 hours and 10 minutes. So this can last you a full day if you’re, not a heavy user, when it comes to cameras, unlike its mi 11 big brothers that have high grade camera systems, the mi 11 light gets a few trimming in this category. Its triple rear shooters are composed of a 64 megapixel main an 8 megapixel ultra wide and a 5 megapixel tele macro lens that promises two times magnification compared to normal macro lenses. As for selfies, it has a 16 megapixel front. Camera scrolling through the camera. App itself should be familiar for all time, android users – and you can still find here some of xiaomi’s quirky camera features such as short, video, vlog mode, dual video long exposure, clone and movie effects for those awesome transitions, quality, wise shots taken from the rear cameras. Often, look sharp with accurate, colors and decent dynamic range, especially under good lighting conditions, leaving the ai turned on gives off a small image boost that still maintains good color production. The standard mode also gives a depth effect, which is nice. You can zoom in up to 10 times, but if you want to see extra details, you can switch the picture quality in the settings to high or simply use its 64 megapixel lens.
The wide angle camera provides almost the same quality as the standard mode. However, it tends to have some subtle fish eye effects at times. Macro mode, on the other hand, works very well. We get good subject: background separation and high quality details for night photography, here’s what it looks like with the night mode turned off. It looks dark and grainy now here’s what it looks like with the night mode turned on honestly. It still looks shadowy, but the brightness did improve and we get lesser noise. As for its front, camera there’s no wide angle option available, but quality wise photos look natural. A bit smooth and fall more on warmer tones when you use the portrait mode, though it struggles in dynamic range. But then, if you use the normal selfie camera, the hdr works. Fine, it’s weird, but hopefully it can be fixed. With a software update. Talk about video quality, you can record up to 4k at 30 frames per second. However, you can only use the steady video stabilization for 1080p at 30 frames per second and being xiaomi. It comes with cool native video features like tracking moving objects, beautify and movie filters. Additionally, you can also use the pro mode for shooting videos – nice, alright, let’s.
