Xiaomi 11T Pro Review: For buck bang

The next Gene Premium premium smartphones are here. Xiaomi 11T Pro, OnePlus 9RT and Samsung Galaxy S21 FE have all been launched in the last few weeks. They do not necessarily offer features that are not available on 2021 phones. 120Hz OLED display, Snapdragon 888 processor, 108-megapixel camera we all saw. In addition to the 120W fast charging on the Xiaomi 11T Pro. Needed? It depends on you. But the Xiaomi phone clearly offers more benefits than others.

The other thing that is used for it is the most powerful pricing. Xiaomi 11T Pro is cheaper than Samsung and OnePlus devices. The difference between 8GB RAM and 128GB storage difference is Rs 39,999 Rs, the difference between 8GB RAM and 256GB storage is Rs 41,999 and Rs 12,999 Rs and 256GB storage difference.

The question to ask is is it better to choose Xiaomi than the brands OnePlus and Samsung have created over the years? This is my take. We hope you find it helpful in your decision making.

Xiaomi 11T Pro Review: Charging Technology

Let’s start with something new. I have already encountered Xiaomi HyperCharge technology, the second smartphone to be found in the recently launched Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge and Xiaomi 11T Pro India. Simply put, the phone supports 120W fast charging. And, once again, you will find the compatible charger in the box.

The Xiaomi 11T Pro contains a relatively large 5000mAh battery from the 4500mAh package on the Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge. Therefore, it also takes extra minutes to complete. Xiaomi says the phone could go from 0 to 100 percent in 17 minutes. I tried a few times but the phone did not ring at that time. I got the best full charge in 18 minutes and 30 seconds, which is amazing.

Each time the device is fully charged, the charger and phone are slightly warmed. Although not shocking.

The battery is well upgraded for daily performance. I used the phone to view some YouTube videos, games, and images. The phone can last up to a day. If you do not play much, the battery will last longer.

Xiaomi 11T Pro Review: Performance

The Xiaomi 11T Pro holds the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC under the hood. Last year was the main chipset. Many people have asked me if it is worth spending on this chip or whether it is worth waiting for Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 phones to launch in India. In fact, the Snapdragon 888 processor is powerful enough to do any job. Smartphone cycles are so fast that we believe that a device or chip will age in a matter of months.

Anyone planning to run high-end gaming titles should opt for the 12 GB RAM variant. This was for review and I did not have any problems. I ran many games like Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI), Call of Duty and PUBG: New State. Mandatory Call Flight Mobile supports high frame rate and runs seamlessly. The games were not delayed.

No heating problems during the first 40-45 minutes. After that the phone warms up slightly.

Haptic feedback is excellent. Typing makes it fun. Overall UI and animations are just as smooth. The phone supports 135G band and Bluetooth 5.2. The phone has two single speakers on the top and bottom. These are modified by Harman / Cardon and support Dolby Atmos. They actually scream.

Finally, the phone runs MIUI 12.5 based on Android 11. It is a work in progress. MIUI came clean last year or so but it still comes with a few pre-installed apps. For the most part, they are not needed.

Xiaomi 11T Pro Review: Design

The Xiaomi 11T Pro feels good about the price. It is a premium-looking smartphone with a glass back panel and curved edges. I have found a celestial magic color variant for review which looks gorgeous. It is glossy and contains a few fingerprints. There are also moonlight white and metroite black options. They have a more subtle finish.

The phone weighs 204 grams, some may find it high, but it is well distributed. The side frame is made of plastic and has no premium. Holds a fingerprint sensor on top of the power key. This has become a common feature on flagship and budget Xiaomi phones.

The rear camera module is large. Xiaomi skips the headphone jack but sends the phone with a Type-C to 3.5mm connector in the box. You also get a silicone case to protect the device. In addition, the display has Gorilla Glass Victus protection and the phone is rated IP53-resistant to dust and spray. Xiaomi would do well to make the phone completely waterproof.

Xiaomi 11T Pro Quick Review: Display

The front-facing 6.67-inch OLED display comes with 120 Hz refresh rate and 480Hz touch sample rate support. Xiaomi uses a 10-bit panel that supports Dolby Vision and HDR 10+ certified. The phone comes with a maximum brightness of 1000 nits. A Widevine L1 certificate is issued to release HD content throughout the phone.

Again, Xiaomi could have used the Mi 11 Ultra QHD + display here like last year but there is nothing to complain about on the screen. The display is sharp, smooth and suitable for feeding. It has good viewing angles and is bright enough for outdoor use. The edges are also reasonably thin and balanced.

Xiaomi 11T Pro Review: Camera

The phone has a 108-megapixel front-facing camera, an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera and, expect, a 5-megapixel telemacro camera. I’m glad the Xiaomi camera isn’t paired with the same old 108-megapixel sensor. In fact, the world is no longer ready for anything. I also really appreciate the telecom sensor here. Better than macro cameras on most phones. It has a 16-megapixel autofocus shooter.

The camera app is Xiaomi with the usual options. The main concern in the camera department is the lack of optical image stabilization. Low light can be a problem when clicking images. Instead, Xiaomi has equipped the phone with electronic image stabilization or EIS. Ideally, the phone in this section should have OIS.

Here is what I thought about the camera performance.

– The main camera comes with well-defined images in a good dynamic range. The pictures look good, they are sharp and the colors are just as accurate.

– In some cases the camera can adjust the colors to make the images look attractive but they are usually controlled. The images are not over-drawn for more details.

-The condition of the portrait is amazing. It has good edge detection, gives good bookeh results and does not clean the background.

– The wide angle camera has a good viewing area, allows you to take good wide shots and is close to the main camera in terms of color accuracy.

– Macro sensor is the best in this price segment. It has flawless auto-focus, does not require stable hands and clicks some impressive images.

– Selfies are also good. The front camera does not interfere with skin tones. You can also click selfies in portrait mode.

Xiaomi 11T Pro Review: Final Judgment

A.D. In the first month of 2022, three new premium phones appeared in the country: Xiaomi 11T Pro, Samsung Galaxy S21 FE and OnePlus 9RT. Xiaomi 11T Pro clearly offers the best price. It has good display, powerful Snapdragon 888 SoC, loudspeakers, standard cameras and fast charging technology. Haptics is one of the best things I’ve ever had.

Xiaomi is probably the only thing missing is OIS support on the rear camera. OnePlus offers the same features as the OnePlus 9RT but is slightly higher than the Xiaomi 11T Pro. I think most users will be very happy to agree to that feature to save some money. Others, iQOO 9 or Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip phones will have to wait a while until they start.
