Welcome to our full video review of the Xiaomi Mi 11i, aka the Mi 11X Pro in India.
We liked the phone in a vacuum – it has an excellent display, the very best chipset around in the Snapdragon 888, a dependable battery life with solid charging speed and very capable cameras.
There are some cut corners like the plastic frame, side-mounted fingerprint sensor and only IP53 splash resistance.
But the Xiaomi Mi 11i is only marginally cheaper than some sough-after flagships like the Galaxy S21 5G, which puts it in a tough spot, market-wise. Indian Mi 11X Pro units have a better going, price-to-rivals-wise, but they’re still hard to wholeheartedly recommend at their current price.
And if you want the full scoop on the Xiaomi Mi 11i, here’s our full written review, complete with camera samples, the entire competitors’ list and more.
