XIAOMI 11I HYPERCHARGE 5G REVIEW, 120W FAST CHARGING, BUT DO YOU NEED IT
In reality, it isnt a consistent speed and, more often than not, it will take more than 15 minutes to fully charge. Having said that, it is still the fastest charging phone. You can get your hands on in india at the moment, which makes it a great buy for people who demand better battery life and faster charging speeds. The xiaomi 11i hyper charge is the first phone in india to offer support for 120 w fast charging right out of the box and is only the second phone to be powered by the demensity 920 chipset. While it follows the mi 10i series from last year, the 11i hyper charge is actually based on the redmi note 11 pro plus, which launched in china in november 2021. We have seen fast charging getting speedier every year and, with the 11 eye hyper charge, xiaomi has set a benchmark for everyone else to follow this year. Whats more is that the phone is priced in the upper echelons of the mid range segment, which makes it a unique offering in the sub 30 000 rupees price bracket. We took the xiaomi 11i hypercharge through our usual set of tests to see how it holds up against the competition and whether the 15 minute charge claim does hold up in real life. The 11i hyper charge is powered by the mediatek demensity 920 chipset, which has an octa core cpu and mali g68 gpu. This is paired with six gigabytes. Eight gigabytes of lpddr4x ram and 128 gigabytes 256 gigabytes.
Ufs 2.2 storage to choose from the cpu comprises two performance cores running at up to 2.5 gigahertz and six power efficient cores clocked at up to 2.0 gigahertz. It runs on android 11, based my ui 12.5, which is set to receive my ui 13 based on android 12.. In my day to day use the 11. I hyper charge showed no signs of slow down or lags in any kind of interaction, and neither did i face a barrage of ads in the notifications panel. Something xiaomi has been criticized in past. Although the phone does come with some pre loaded apps, including linkedin, it largely remains clutter, free and is very snappy thanks in part to the 120 hertz refresh rate, the 11i hyper charge performed well in synthetic benchmarks, and we also compared its stats with the oneplus nord 2 samsung galaxy m52 and the only other phone which has demand city 920, the vivo v23 in the antutu benchmark. The 11i hypercharge got a decent score in comparison with phones like the v23 or galaxy m52. However, between the four phones, the nord 2 managed to get a lead of over 2 lakh plus points. That said, the demensity 920 on the 11i hypercharge still manages to catch up to the snapdragon 778 g. On the galaxy m52, we saw a similar trend in the geekbench single core and multi core tests, where the 11 eye hyper charge manages to beat the vivo v23 and goes toe to toe with the m52 and nord 2.
xiaomi 11i hyper charge battery and charging test. The 11i hyper charges fame to claim its 500 milliamp hours battery that supports 120 w fast charging and xiaomi claims that it can fully charge in just 15 minutes. Now we did put that claim to test, and surprisingly the 11i hypercharge did not live up to the hype, but theres more to it than meets the eye right out of the box. The first time i charged this phone from 0 to 100 without enabling internet or logging into a google account, it did take 15 minutes to fully charge. However, my subsequent attempts at charging this phone from 0 to 100 took around 20 minutes. On average, when switched on, the 11i hypercharge took 19 minutes to go from zero to 100, which is groundbreaking. Nonetheless, this was with the brightness set to the maximum with 120 hertz. Refresh rate, and always on display enabled i deep discharged the battery on the phone again for round two, and this time the 11i hypercharge took 21 minutes to go from zero to 100. When switched off. The xiaomi 11i hypercharge comes with a triple camera setup on the back headlined by a 108 megapixels camera, with an f 1.9, followed by an 8 megapixels ultra wide camera and a two megapixels macro camera. The rear cameras can record in 4k, uhd and 1080p at up to 60fps. Out of the three cameras, the main 108 megapixels camera is capable of producing some decent pictures that are color, accurate and detailed.
During the day and in ample lighting conditions, you will be able to get some good images from the primary sensor with a good dynamic range. Textures and natural depth of field effect. We also noticed some ghosting effects in pictures taken from the front camera, but its very rare and shouldnt be a problem for most users. Having said that, the phone fails to produce usable pictures at night or in low lighting conditions, while the main camera manages to enhance the brightness and details in night mode. It does not come across as natural and you can see signs of shabby post processing. The ultra wide camera produces average results with images having sharpness in the center, but as you tend to move away from the center, there is little sharpness and noticeable barrel distortion. Also, the color tone between the main camera and the ultra wide camera just does not match and is ever so slightly dull and warm. Similarly, the two megapixels macro camera can get really close to the subject, but the result is filled with grains and sometimes it gets tough to focus on the subject. Overall, the camera stack on the eleven eye, hyper charges decent and nothing groundbreaking its performances at par with other phones in this segment, sometimes better and sometimes worse. That said, it is common across this price point and if great cameras is a priority, then you may have to look elsewhere. The xiaomi 11i hypercharge has a plastic build with an anti glare matte finish on the back, which means that you wont have to keep cleaning the back off of fingerprints and smudges.
However, the matte finish is only available with stealth, black camo, green and purple mist colors, while the pacific pearl has a shining gradient finish. The phone also has flat edges, which arent sharp and has a comfortable grip. I, like the build design and in hand, feel of the 11 eye hyper charge. It is slim measuring 8.3 millimeters and weighs 204 grams, which dont feel hefty in the hand itll be safe. To say that you can use this phone without straining your hands in tasks like gaming or watching movies. The xiaomi 11i hypercharge features a 6.67 inch full hd plus 2400 by 1080 pixels resolution, a mold display that offers up to a 120 hertz refresh rate and has a tiny punch hole. Notch cut out for the 16 megapixel selfie camera up front. The display on the 11i hypercharge is great for watching videos or movies, and you can expect an immersive experience from the large and vibrant screen since the punch hole. Notch cutout is very small. It does not spoil the viewing experience and the screen can get really bright, even outdoors and in sunlight. The xiaomi 11i hypercharge sets a new benchmark with its 120w fast charging solution, which is capable of topping up the phones battery in no time while xiaomi claims that it takes 15 minutes to charge the phone fully. In reality, it isnt a consistent speed and, more often than not, it will take more than 15 minutes to fully charge.
Having said that, it is still the fastest charging phone. You can get your hands on in india at the moment, which makes it a great buy for people who demand better battery life and faster charging speeds.
