Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra Review: Everything You Need to Know

On March 29, 2021, Xiaomi released the Mi 11 Ultra smartphone. A 6.80-inch touchscreen main display with a resolution of 1440x3200 pixels, a pixel density of 515 pixels per inch (PPI), and a 20:9 aspect ratio is included with the device. An octa-core Qualcomm processor powers the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra. It comes with 12GB of RAM. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is powered by a 5000mAh battery and runs on Android 11. Wireless charging and patented the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra also supports quick charging.

Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra has a 50-megapixel primary camera with an f/1.95 aperture on the back, a 48-megapixel camera with an f/2.2 aperture, and a 48-megapixel camera on the front. Autofocus is available on the rear camera.

The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is powered by MIUI 12.5 and comes with 256GB of internal storage. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is a dual-SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone with Nano-SIM and Nano-SIM card slots. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra weights 234.00 grammes and measures 164.30 x 74.60 x 8.38mm (height x width x thickness). It is dust and water-resistant, with an IP68 ranking.

Wi-Fi 802.11, GPS, Bluetooth v5.20, NFC, USB Type-C, 3G, and 4G are available on the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra. Accelerometer, ambient light sensor, compass/ magnetometer, gyroscope, touch sensor, and in-display fingerprint sensor are among the phone's sensors. Face-unlock is available on the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra.

Those specifications aren't just about checking boxes. All of them function as anticipated, with a few exceptions, such as the QHD resolution, 120Hz screen, fast 67W charging, and telephoto camera, providing class-leading output. However, how much Xiaomi wishes to charge for this model will determine its ultimate fate.

Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra Review Analysis: Design

From the front, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra could be mistaken for the standard Mi 11. Although the curved punch-hole display is attractive, it is indistinguishable from other Mi 11 versions and Android phones. All happens as you flip the screen over. The large rectangular camera bump that spans almost the entire width of the phone, as well as the top third of the rear, draws your attention right away. The three wide camera gaps, not to mention the secondary rear monitor to their right, seem ominous.

The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra has a rugged ceramic body that comes in two colours: black and white. Both colours are sleek, and the Mi 11 Ultra can be more scratch-resistant than a handset with a glass or plastic back. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra's front and back curl into the metal side rails, making it fit remarkably well in your palm and easy to use even with one hand. However, the weight of this handset will be apparent the moment you pick it up.

Xiaomi has given the Mi 11 Ultra a beautiful show. The 6.81-inch AMOLED display has a slight curve on all four sides to make it easy to grip and has a QHD resolution and a 120HZ maximum refresh rate. Xiaomi has made it simple to reduce the refresh rate and resolution if battery life is essential.

Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra Review: Camera Analysis

The Mi 11 Ultra prioritizes camera output over quantity, with just three rear cameras. The available ones have impressive specifications. The ultrawide and telephoto cameras all have 48MP sensors, while the primary camera has a 50MP sensor. The phone's telephoto camera is capable of 120x magnification, as text on the back of the phone warns you, but you'll be best off sticking to the 5x optical or 10x hybrid zoom levels instead.

The front camera on the Mi 11 Ultra is a 20MP sensor that almost doesn't need to be there. All of the rear cameras can be used for selfies, thanks to the secondary monitor.

The Mi 11 Ultra is equipped with a Snapdragon 888 processor, 12GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. There aren't many phones with better specifications, so be confident that the Mi 11 Ultra can handle any software or game you throw at it.

The Mi 11 Ultra scored 1,136 points on the Geekbench 5 app, which tests overall results, and 3,724 points on the multicore test. That puts it ahead of the OnePlus 9 Pro (1,126 and 3,685) and the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra (1,123 and 3,440). However, it is still behind the iPhone 12 Pro Max (1,603 and 4,111) and its all-powerful A14 Bionic chipset.

Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra Review: Charging and battery

The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra has a 5,000 mAh battery. The battery in the Mi 11 Ultra is unusual. It is made of nano silicon oxide, which allows it to pack more power into a smaller space than a typical lithium-ion smartphone battery.

The wired charging block is included in the Mi 11's package. According to the company's data, charging with one of these takes just 36 minutes to charge the phone entirely. That outperforms both the Galaxy S21 Ultra and the iPhone 12 Pro, which neither come with a charger.

Xiaomi holds the MIUI 12 spin on Android 11 for the Mi 11 Ultra because it's a successful one. Xiaomi has effectively combined the stock Android experience with its exclusive elements, such as revolving screens, always-on displays, and an appealing design with smoothly animated transitions.

The only new feature worth noting on the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is the options menu for the rear display, which can be found in the special features section. It lets you choose whether the monitor displays a clock, signature, or portrait, as well as the colour scheme, alerts that appear, whether you want to turn it on with a double-tap, and how long it stays on before disappearing. You can still totally uninstall it, which sounds like a waste of one of the phone's most valuable capabilities.

Final Verdict

The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is a capable handset that can either be the best mobile deal of the year or a repackage of what the Xiaomi Mi 11 already has to sell. Since Xiaomi was so generous with the Mi 11, which has the same main display and chipset as the Mi 11 while also providing professional imaging, the Mi 11 Ultra adds less value to the Mi 11 than, say, a Galaxy S21 Ultra adds to a base Galaxy S21. As a result, Xiaomi's decision about charging for the Mi 11 Ultra will determine if the phone succeeds or fails.

If you believe the extra monitor, 67W charging, and the strength of the rear cameras are essential to you, then buy a Mi 11 Ultra; you won't find these features anywhere else anytime soon.

Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is priced at Rs. 69,990 as of April 29, 2021, in India.
