Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G review

Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G


Xiaomi has mistaken even us for the sheer number of mid-estimated cell phones it’s delivered in the course of the last 12 to year and a half. The Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite, the Xiaomi Mi 10T-Lite, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro, and the Xiaomi Poco F3 all hide around the $400/£300 value point. 

The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G may address a little leap up in cost, yet it very well may be the most tasteful mid-officer of the parcel. Indeed, it was for a very long time, until the Mi 11 Lite 5G NE came out. This gadget has a superior chipset, arrives in another shading, and has a couple of more camera modes – and that is it. 

As a reasonable option in contrast to the leader Xiaomi Mi 11 (and the extravagance yacht that is the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra), the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite is intended to mirror the line’s intense 2021 plan revive, just as motion at a portion of its specialized headways, yet for an undeniably more pocket-accommodating sticker price. 

It figures out how to do exactly that with a smooth plan that is however thin as it seems to be light. It may have a plastic casing, however, the Mi 11 Lite 5G’s glass back looks and feels reassuringly costly. 

We’re additionally intrigued at how quick the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G ends up being. By utilizing another Snapdragon 780G chip, the telephone approaches 2020 leader levels of speed. Portable gamers on a tight spending plan will need to observe. 

While a 90Hz presentation may appear as though the previous specs, closer assessment uncovers the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G to have a marvelously lively AMOLED board. It easily outperforms section-level 120Hz presentations. 

The Mi 11 Lite 5G’s camera framework doesn’t play out any Pixel-like supernatural occurrences, however, it is driven by a competent 64MP primary sensor. Xiaomi’s keen picture preparation guarantees brilliant, adjusted shots in great lighting, and acceptable night shots. However, it’s a disgrace the 8MP super wide is so fair. 

Somewhere else, the Mi 11 Lite 5G’s endurance is strong as opposed to breathtaking, while MIUI keeps on intriguing with its customization choices and disappoints with its bulge. 

By and large, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G is a huge advance forward from the Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite and Xiaomi Mi 10T-Lite in three key regions: execution, plan, and show. This consequently makes it probably the best telephone accessible at the cost. 

Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G cost and released date: 

  • Declared March 29, 2021, delivered April 16 
  • Just out in the UK – far-fetched to come to US or Australia 
  • Estimating £399 (generally $550 / AU$755) 

The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G was declared on March 29, 2021, and it arrived in UK shops in April after a reasonable level of postponement and vulnerability. 

It costs £399 (around $550/AU$755) for the sole model, which gives you 8GB of RAM and 128GB of interior stockpiling. 

This places the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G into direct competition with the OnePlus Nord range, just as the Pixel 5a/Pixel 4a, the Samsung Galaxy A52 5G, and surprisingly Xiaomi’s own Poco F3. It’s a cutthroat field okay. 


  • Glossy plastic edge and intense, outwardly engaging glass back 
  • Incredibly slim and light at 6.8mm/159g 

The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G’s plan is an extensive improvement over the conventional Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite, while it carefully keeps two or three bolder components of the Xiaomi Mi 10T-Lite. 

Xiaomi has astutely discarded the dated tear selfie camera of the Mi 10 Lite and has moved its poke hole elective over to the left-hand corner, similar to the full-fat Xiaomi Mi 11. The encompassing bezels are genuinely insignificant, though marginally thicker around the jaw, which is an indication of a more reasonable telephone. 

One more pointer of the telephone’s lower sticker price is the thick dark plastic support between the level screen glass and the sparkly plastic edge. The last seems like to a lesser extent a trade-off than at any other time, considering that all things being equal called lead telephones like the Samsung Galaxy S21 and the OnePlus 9 are rediscovering the expense cutting delights of plastic. 

However, it’s the point at which you flip the telephone onto its front that the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G truly offers its expression. The silk finish glass back, striking tones (our Mint Green model looks reasonably new), unpretentious yet intelligent logo, and unmistakable camera module closely resemble they have a place with a significantly more costly telephone. 

This is a truly simple telephone to live with as well. At simply 6.8mm thick and gauging an insufficient 159g, it’s ecstatically unassuming when sat in a pant pocket. Try not to misunderstand us, it’s anything but a minuscule telephone like the iPhone 12 small. You’re actually getting a huge 6.55-inch show and the standard impression that involves. Be that as it may, it seems like sweet alleviation after the weight of the Xiaomi Mi 10T-Lite. 

Like that last telephone, you’ll need to acknowledge a unique finger impression sensor inserted in the force button on the right-hand edge. It’s a less clearly premium choice than the in-show arrangements normally preferred for lead and mid-range telephones, however to this current essayist’s brain it’s desirable over the back-mounted spending plan elective. You can get to the telephone without getting it, for a certain thing. 

Xiaomi’s execution is appropriately quick and solid, regardless of whether we lean toward the recessed button of the Xiaomi Mi 10T-Lite and Sony’s Xperia range. 


  • 6.55-inch 1080 x 2400 AMOLED screen
  • 90Hz invigorate rate 
  • 800 nits top brilliance, 500 nits common 

The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G packs a 6.55-inch show with a 1080 x 2400 goal and a 90Hz invigorate rate. 

That is more modest and in fact less liquid than the Xiaomi Mi 10T-Lite before it (which was 6.67-inches and 120Hz), also a lot less expensive Poco X3 NFC. However, the Mi 11 Lite has the additional advantage of being an AMOLED board. Also, in addition to any AMOLED, however, one with 10-digit shading profundity support, which is equipped for yielding 1.07 billion tones (multiple times more than its archetype). 

You likewise get the standard AMOLED advantage of having the option to yield genuine blacks, which truly makes its mark with the consistently in plain view and unpretentious edge warning lighting activities. 

On balance, we’d take this more extensive mix over the apparently quicker LCD elective. 90Hz is still bounty sufficiently smooth, and you will not see the shortage except if you have a 120Hz telephone to hand for an immediate correlation. Truth be told, one next to the other, we discovered the Mi 11 Lite’s presentation to feel more responsive than the 10T Lite’s, basically partially on account of its 240Hz touch inspecting rate. 

A pinnacle splendor of 800 nits lets you know that this is anything but a high-level OLED (you can practically twofold that with the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra), however, a commonplace brilliance of 500 nits makes for open to survey. It’s prepared for HDR10+ content as well. 

This is a dead level presentation, which again indicates a lower sticker price, however it benefits from Corning Gorilla Glass 6 for additional sturdiness. Some extensively more costly telephones, similar to the Oppo Find X3 Neo, are as yet utilizing Gorilla Glass 5.


  • 64MP primary sensor makes great efforts in sunshine 
  • 8MP super wide is genuinely terrible 
  • 2x zoom shots crop in, however look very great 
  • Night mode a hodgepodge contrasted with archetype 

The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G has a triple camera arrangement on the back, which is one less than both the Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite and the Xiaomi Mi 10T-Lite before it. 

Not that we’re grumbling – in the two cases, two of those were near on pointless profundity and large-scale sensors. Here you simply have the single 5MP large-scale sensor to overlook. 

Your primary consideration will be on the 1/1.97-inch 64MP wide sensor, which includes an f/1.79 gap and a 6-component focal point framework. Naturally, this catches 16MP shots by utilizing a 4-in-1 pixel binning method. 

These shots can look incredible in great lighting. On several radiant spring days, we had the option to catch some really striking shots of blossoms overflowing with lively shading, with that wide opening yielding pails of normal bokeh. 

The 8MP 1/4-inch super wide sensor truly isn’t up to anything like a similar norm, regardless of whether you’re discussing point of interest levels or shading balance. Shots taken with this auxiliary sensor will in general look dinky and unmistakably ailing exhaustively, with packs of soft clamor towards the edges. 

Any zoom you apply will be totally edited from that principle sensor, with no devoted zooming focal point to talk about. 2x shots really look very great here, be that as it may, because of the bounty of pixels available to it. 

There’s a representation mode, however, it’s not the most persuading model we’ve ever had. The defocused foundation impact looks somewhat unusual, practically like an artwork, and our subjects neglected to pop as they do on more costly telephones. 

Xiaomi’s 20MP selfie camera isn’t really awful, be that as it may, with a considerable lot of detail in great lighting. 

Night mode is somewhat of a mishmash here. We’re not anticipating incredible outcomes from a reasonable telephone, however, when we took a small bunch of indistinguishable low light shots on the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G and the Xiaomi Mi 10T-Lite, we frequently favored the cooler consequences of the last mentioned. The Mi 11 Lite’s shots looked debilitated yellow by examination. 

Nonetheless, the haziest – and along these lines generally testing – shot of the bundle was a lot more brilliant and better uncovered on the Mi 11 Lite. Make of that what you will. 

The telephone’s video offering is quite amazing for a reasonable telephone, with 4K at 30fps or 1080p at up to 120fps. The 4K film we took looked overall quite steady, with electronic picture adjustment (EIS) promptly applied, dissimilar to on the Mi 10T-Lite. 

Specs and execution: 

  • Snapdragon 780G methodologies 2020 leader levels of execution 
  • Along with sound system speakers, it’s an incredible reasonable gaming telephone 

The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G uses a higher grade of processor than the plain Mi 11 Lite that is accessible in certain domains. 

Where the 4G-just model uses a Snapdragon 732G like the Poco X3 NFC, this 5G model that we’re trying embraces the new Snapdragon 780G. Regardless of what the name may propose to you, this is an impressively more fit chip that has been constructed utilizing a similar preparing innovation and engineering as the lead Snapdragon 888. 

It addresses a gigantic jump over the Snapdragon 750G utilized by the Xiaomi Mi 10T-Lite too. A normal Geekbench 5 multi-center score of 2,922 for the Mi 11 Lite 5G totally destroys both the Mi 10T-Lite (1,931) and the Poco X3 NFC (1,755). 

Indeed, it gets stunningly near the Oppo Find X3 Neo (3,147), which is a considerably more costly contemporary gadget running on the Snapdragon 865. That was the go-to lead chip of 2020. 

The main thing that makes us begin to scrutinize the incentive of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G in execution terms is the point at which we contrast it and the Poco F3, which packs the unrivaled Snapdragon 870 (and a 120Hz showcase) for less cash. Yet, the distinction isn’t enormous, and Xiaomi wins out in alternate ways, like that smooth plan. 

Combined with a solid 6 or 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM, the Snapdragon 780G supplies a quick and liquid experience. Everything here, from home screen route to application exchanging, feels near leader level. 

The genuine hole between the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G’s Snapdragon 780G and the lead unit would seem to relate to its Adreno 642 GPU, which falls somewhat short of the Adreno 650 in the Snapdragon 865 and the Snapdragon 870. A 3DMark score of 3,120 falls around 2,500 focuses shy of telephones running the Snapdragon 888, similar to the OnePlus 9 and the Xiaomi Mi 11 itself. 

In any case, gaming execution is solid. Indeed, even with the graphical settings wrenched up to max, League of Legends: Wild Rift runs at a strong 60fps, with just the odd plunge. PUBG Mobile runs well at HDR Graphics and Extreme Frame Rate which are similar max settings we wrenched the OnePlus 9 too. 

Discussing gaming, you’ll advantage from appropriate sound system sound here, politeness of a couple of speakers. You’ll have the option to introduce every one of your games, music, and films onto a standard 128GB of inside stockpiling, and there’s likewise a microSD card opening for extension purposes. 


  • Runs Android 11 with MIUI 12 on top 
  • Swollen and some of the time intuitive interface
  • Heaps of helpful customization choices 

The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G runs MIUI 12 on top of Android 11, very much like its older sibling the Xiaomi Mi 11. And keeping in mind that it’s as yet not the most classy custom Android skin available, it’s one of the better all-around entertainers. 

However, it actually experiences an excessive lot of swell. In the event that we need to expound on our puzzlement at the presence of Xiaomi’s own Mi Browser close by Google Chrome once again… indeed, let’s be honest, we must. It’s here, and it’s similarly as futile as could be expected. 

Xiaomi’s own set-up of applications stretches to incorporate its own Music, Video, Gallery, Security, and Themes arrangements. You likewise get a Cleaner for cleaning up those memory-hoarding applications and records, which is helpful, however, we object to being shown a full-page advertisement each time we do as such. Those advertisements reappear when introducing applications, as well. 

Talking of applications, any semblance of Amazon Shopping, Facebook, TikTok, and LinkedIn come pre-introduced as standard, if you need them. Furthermore, they’re completely packaged into a More Apps envelope through which Xiaomi likewise attempts to push a lot of touchy games at you. 

Bloatware aside, MIUI has developed to turn into an amazing interface. The capacity to part the warning sheet into double drag-down menus – one for notices, the other for control alternate ways – is gladly received, just like the way that it’s absolutely discretionary. 

For sure, customization is MIUI 12’s greatest resource. The Themes store is loaded with bespoke searches for your home screen, and a portion of the live ‘super backdrops’ is actually rather amazing. We went with a ring of Saturn subject that appears to dip into a new point each time we open the telephone. 

This force appears to come to the detriment of lucidity, be that as it may. Exploring MIUI’s Settings menu can be an irrational bad dream, with certain ordinary alternatives apparently having gone walkabout. 

Pondering where the choice to change the screen’s an ideal opportunity to rest is? It’s not in Display, where you may anticipate it. It’s in the different ‘Consistently in plain view’ menu. While a few different choices ended up being generally where we expected, we still by one way or another imagined to disregard them a few times. There’s simply something generally hazy with regards to Xiaomi’s menu plan. 

Battery life:

  • 4,250mAh battery isn’t the greatest, yet endures an entire day 
  • 33W charger packaged in 

The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G accompanies a 4,250mAh battery. That is not little using any and all means, but rather it is a reasonable piece more minimized than the 4,820mAh Mi 10T-Lite cell, and way not exactly the 5,160mAh battery of the Poco X3 NFC. 

Obviously, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G doesn’t need to stress over running a completely 120Hz LCD show. Its 90Hz AMOLED is an undeniably more prudent part, in principle. 

Fortunately, the telephone keeps going all around ok by and by, as well. A light day with three hours of screen-on time would in general leave us with a solid half still in the tank. A more concentrated period with 4 hours of screen time dropped that add up to 35%. 

Media utilization will deplete that battery somewhat quicker, obviously. Our typical battery test, which includes an hour and a half 720p circling video playing with the screen brilliance wrenched as far as possible depleted 11% of a full charge. That is superior to your normal 120Hz telephone, yet not actually astonishing. 

You get a 33W charger in the box, which is certainly not a specific stick out, yet it’s still eminently better than Samsung’s and Apple’s best can summon. Thirty minutes of charging got us from 20% to 82%, which looks good for those unrehearsed top-up circumstances. 

Media utilization will deplete that battery fairly quicker, obviously. Our standard battery test, which includes an hour and a half 720p circling video playing with the screen brilliance turned as far as possible depleted 11% of a full charge. That is superior to your normal 120Hz telephone, yet not actually astounding. 

You get a 33W charger in the box, which is anything but a specific stick out, yet it’s still prominently better than Samsung’s and Apple’s best can assemble. 30 minutes of charging got us from 20% to 82%, which looks good for those unrehearsed top-up circumstances.
