To this day, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is a monument to smartphone brilliance, having been released in April of 2021.
The Mi 11 Ultra is a top-tier smartphone in every way, from the materials used to the design to the components and the performance.
Like the Mi 10 Ultra, the Mi 11 boasts a 5,000mAh battery that can be charged to 100% in around 40 minutes.
For those who prefer wireless charging, the Mi 11 Ultra is capable of charging to 100% in less than an hour.
Even before we get to the rigorous camera set.
Those cameras are still the best you can get on a smartphone after seven months. 1/1.12-inch Samsung’s GN2 is the largest commercially available CMOS sensor with 50MP (technically smaller than the 1-inch type in the Xperia Pro-I, but the Mi 11 Ultra uses all of its imagers).
Periscope zoom cameras are mounted on the front of the phone’s smallest ultrawide, which is just 12mm wide, and the phone’s largest, which measures a whopping 1/2.0-inch.
It’s also acceptable to take a selfie.
While the Mi 11 Ultra’s camera hardware necessitates the construction of a stunning camera island on the back, the front is a complete contrast.
An AMOLED display of 6.81-inches at 1440p with sloping edges on all four sides gives the Mi 11 Ultra’s front an uninterrupted pebble-like look.
The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra has a Snapdragon 888 processor, up to 12GB of RAM, UFS 3.1 storage, and a display touch sampling rate of 480Hz, making it one of the quickest smartphones on the market.
It’s the best phone out there, no matter how you look at it.
Xiaomi did not cut any corners in the development of this device, but they also charge a hefty price for it.
As a result, you’d think it’d be worth it.
Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra has been my daily companion since its launch, and I’ve taken it for walks in the summer and fall as well as on long workdays.
Because you can’t use this phone in a case, I’ve taken a lot of photos and films with it, and regrettably, it has a few scratches.
This smartphone is a work of art in itself.
Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is the best phone this reviewer has ever had the pleasure of using.
However, despite my preference for a black phone with a matte back panel that I can put into a basic rubber case and leave alone, I find myself enjoying the Mi 11 Ultra despite my better judgement.
It’s first and foremost that I don’t utilise a case. Because of this, I’ve got a heightened awareness of my grip, which is something I can’t say I particularly appreciate.
The Mi 11 Ultra, on the other hand, necessitates careful handling due to its tendency to slide about in your hand.
Since the razor-thin frame is sandwiched between two slabs of heavily curved glass, there’s no way to grip it when you’re lifting it from a table.
It is the most impressive exhibition in town.
I look for three things in a phone: a good screen, good cameras, and a long battery life.
If you’re looking for a phone for the first time, look no further than the iPhone 5.
What About Its Display?
With a 6.81-inch 1440x3200px AMOLED display that refreshes up to 120Hz, HDR10+ support and a brightness of 940 nits, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is one of the brightest smartphones on the market.
Regardless of how you intend to use it, the display has a lot of power.
It’s a joy to navigate the operating system and view videos on this device.
Stable auto-brightness controls. Even when I’m using the device in a dark room, the screen is never too dim.
MIUI is a slick, configurable, and useful platform.
Mi 11 Ultra is now running MIUI 12.5.10 based on Android 11 as of this long-term evaluation.
Xiaomi is currently beta-testing Android 12, so the Mi 11 Ultra may get it before the new year.
Getting acclimated to MIUI can be a challenge.
From the beginning, neither the icon design nor the way things were set up didn’t appeal to me.
The OS doesn’t include an app drawer by default, so all of your apps appear on your home screen.
As a result, all of the stray apps on my phone are stored in an app drawer instead, which I prefer.
What About The Camera?
The best camera equipment on the market.
Finally, we’ve reached the most important part of the phone. Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra’s cameras are what kept me from upgrading to an iPhone or a Pixel, and not the Galaxy S21 Ultra.
The Mi 11 Ultra’s technical genius is undeniable, no matter how subjective the camera output may be.
When it comes to the phone’s specs, the Mi 11 Ultra includes an ultrawide 12mm camera, a 120mm wide-angle lensed lense, and a 50MP primary sensor, which is the largest and most common in a smartphone today. f/2.0 and f/2.2 apertures on two of the three lenses make them relatively bright.
