Xiaomi 11T Pro Review
The Xiaomi 11T Pro offers flagship mobile performance, with super fast charging speeds and competent cameras. This is what you will find in the Xiaomi newcomer.
- Before going into the details of what the new Xiaomi 11T Pro has seemed to us, it is convenient to know the positioning of the product, which is encompassed within a very capable upper mid-range that comes to compete with phones like the OnePlus 9 in price and features. .
- And the 11T Pro provides excellent hardware and top-level performance at a price that will be quite competitive. It is above the Xiaomi 11T, at a price of only $100 less compared to the Mi 11 at the beginning of the year.
Design And Build Quality
- Already at the time, we discovered that the Xiaomi Mi 11 is a fairly large mobile, but the Xiaomi 11T Pro is even bigger. At 164.1 x 76.9mm dimensions, it’s also considerably taller and wider than the OnePlus 9 (160 x 74.2mm), albeit 8.8mm thick.
- It is also frankly heavy, reaching 204 grams. In comparison, the Xiaomi Mi 11 weighs 196 grams and the OnePlus 9 stays at 192 grams. Its water and dust resistance rating is IP53, rather than the IP68 handled by flagship phones, it’s welcome compared to the Mi 11 which didn’t have any.
- As with the OnePlus 9, the 11T Pro adopts a fairly solid aluminum frame with a polycarbonate back cover. It is well built with finishes that can perfectly make you think that you have a premium terminal in your hands.
- The meteor gray finish of the model we tested is somewhat dull and glossy, with a brushed metal effect contrasting with a gloss that slightly attracts fingerprints. Perhaps the other two models, sky blue and midnight white will save you from this situation.
- Its fingerprint sensor is mounted on the side, guaranteeing according to our use tests, a frankly fast response speed. There’s no headphone jack, but there is a pair of Harman Kardon stereo speakers that sound loud and clear.
Xiaomi 11T Pro In Hand
- The curious thing about its somewhat thick design is that the Xiaomi 11T Pro does not house a particularly large screen inside, being a 6.67-inch panel, halfway between the 6.81 inches of the Mi 11 and the 6 , 55 inches from the OnePlus 9.
- This excellent Full HD + display shows blacks in all their glory, for a modern AMOLED panel. It is coated with a Gorilla Glass Victus protection, in order to guarantee high protection against falls or shocks.
- Its maximum brightness reaches 414 nits in normal indoor viewing conditions, and it will reach 800 nits in sunlight or high brightness mode, with 1000 nits if the terminal is exposed to the sun’s rays and you have the settings set to Automatic mode. It’s a great value for a mid-range phone. Xiaomi 11T Pro screen Color accuracy is also high, with gamut coverage of 99.8% sRGB, 85.5% for Adobe RGB, and 97.4% for DCI P3. As was the case with the Mi 11, this model supports a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a sampling rate of 480 Hz.
- You will have to resort to a phone considered a gaming range , such as the Nubia Red Magic 6S Pro to find a screen that is more sensitive to the touch, so game lovers should take note of this particularity.
Specifications And Performance
- When it comes to performance, the Xiaomi 11T Pro can compete with the most advanced mobile phones on the market, since it integrates the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 inside it, equaling the high-end phones of 2021, at least on paper. .
- In practice, an average Geekbench 5 multi-core score of 3495 places it 200 points behind the most powerful smartphones mentioned above, and comfortably ahead of the Samsung Galaxy S21 with Exynos chipset .
- However, a single-core score of 808 felt oddly low, as most Snapdragon 888 phones hit the 1100 mark. Maybe there’s something in the Xiaomi 11T’s power management or cooling settings that you need to readjust. .
- This processor is backed by an amount of 8 GB of RAM in the model we have tested, although you can also find it with 16 GB in certain countries . The same happens with the storage of 128 or 256 GB and without the possibility of using microSD.
- But beyond the benchmark figures , we see that we are talking about marginal gains and losses compared to other Snapdragon 888 phones. In the end, what really counts is how the Xiaomi 11T Pro feels in the hand and, in this sense, it is very fluid.
- A strange quirk with the GFX Bench tests prevented us from running the set of GPU-based benchmarks that we normally run. We will update the information when that is possible again.
