Redmi Note 11 is an attractive and tempting device

Redmi Note 11 is available in Pakistan at a reasonable price 

Stylish and solid

Redmi Note 11 looks like an expensive smartphone because of its construction. The device is available in three color variants– Twilight Blue, Graphite Gray and Star Blue.

.Smartphone users will like its expressive, distinctive camera frame. Flat sides of housing add character and elegance.

The casing is also practical. One can hold the phone with comfort. The casing has been made with a material that gives you the feeling that it is stiff and light.

Display

Although we are talking about mid-range a smartphone launched in Pakistan,. The smartphone has an AMOLED Dot Display. Considering its features it will give you rich, intense colors and perfect deep blacks.

The display covers the DCI-P3 color palette and offers a high contrast of 4,500,000: 1. The technology used also ensures high screen brightness – that is, the convenience of using it in bright lighting, on sunny days.

The typical brightness of this display is a solid 700 nits, but thanks to a special “solar” mode, it can periodically increase up to a thousand nits if necessary.

The screen has a size of 6.43 inches, which is a reasonable compromise between the size ideal for multimedia consumption, and a compact form ensuring the portability of the device.

The display matrix refreshes the image with a frequency of 90 Hz, which makes moving images much smoother and more pleasing to the eye than on standard screens.

Redmi also cares about the condition of our eyes. In addition to the high degree of refreshment, Note 11 uses a system of eye protection against flickering and harmful blue light.

Power Performance for any challenge

The Redmi Note 11 uses the proven Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 processor produced in 6 nm technology. This system is supported by LPDDR4X operating memory and the internal UFS 2.2 carrier, which, if necessary, can be expanded with a removable microSD card up to a terabyte!

The built-in application that allows you to clean the memory of unnecessary files and optimizes the use of device resources in the full way takes care of the optimal performance of the smartphone at any time.

The device also uses the Write Booster technology, which facilitates saving large files, installing applications and accelerating access to data. Thanks to these solutions, we can be sure that, regardless of the usage scenario, our smartphone will always work quickly and smoothly.

This processor is not only fast and powerful, but also runs on the energy-efficient 6nm process to give you high performance while improving battery life. Faster loading speeds with UFS 2.2 and accelerated writing with the Write Booster — effective high-speed app installation, initiation and file cache functions, as well as large-file reading and writing.

Battery

33W Pro fast charging with 5000mAh massive battery Charge to 100% in around an hour with Redmi Note 11’s 33W Pro fast charging*, enabled by Redmi Note’s all new MMT technology. Experience the life-changing benefits of fast charging. *Tested by Xiaomi Internal Labs. Actual results may vary.

There is no shortage of energy

Speaking of energy – we have enough in Redmi Note 11. Thanks to the aforementioned optimization mechanisms, a 5000 mAh battery is enough for up to two days of quite intensive operation of the smartphone. Translating it into concrete facts – we are talking about 43 hours of continuous conversation or 22 hours of continuous watching movies. If we wanted to listen to music using Note 11 – we can do it for up to … 215 hours! If necessary, the energy reserve can be efficiently replenished, because there is a fast-charging system working with a power of 33 W. Thanks to it, we can fill a completely empty battery in an hour. A suitable charger is included in the set – which is not so obvious these days …

Friendly, convenient interface

Redmi Note 11 works on the basis of the proprietary, based on the Android 11 system and the MIUI 13 interface. It provides not only an intuitive, simple layout of individual elements, but also a number of proprietary applications that support the user when using the phone. In MIUI you will find convenient gestures to improve navigation through the interface, as well as functional widgets that allow you to personalize the device. The interface also gives us a “sidebar”, which allows you to access all your favorite applications in floating windows with a single gesture. The system also includes a number of background functions that continuously optimize the system as well as conserve energy.

Security is an important thing

A smartphone is the most personal device that surrounds us. We store a lot of information, photos and data that are important to us, the phone is often also our wallet and banking platform. That is why the degree of protection it provides is so important. In Redmi Note 11, a proven solution was chosen: a classic fingerprint reader located on the side of the housing. Using this reader is convenient and intuitive. The sensor is also fast and reliable, but if we prefer to unlock the smartphone using the image of our face – we will also have this option. Thanks to the option of cloning applications and creating a “second space” for applications and files, Redmi Note 11 will allow us to efficiently and effectively separate our private zone of the phone from the work one.

Xiaomi has a problem: the flood of smartphones has stopped working

In the fourth quarter of 2021, Xiaomi has nothing to smile about


Xiaomi certainly imagined things differently: In the fourth quarter of 2021, the Chinese manufacturer will be treading water, while Apple and Samsung will be the winners. For Xiaomi, the question arises as to whether the previous strategy still has a future. A commentary by Kaan Gürayer.

Xiaomi fails to increase smartphone market share
The numbers that the market researchers at Canalys have compiled for Xiaomi are oppressive: In the recently completed fourth quarter of 2021, the busy electronics group secured a 12 percent share of global smartphone sales – just as much as in the previous year . Gold and silver medals go to Apple and Samsung (Source: Canalys )

Notorious optimists, who always see the glass half full, would now object: “Neither improved nor worsened, it fits!” But things are not that simple for Xiaomi. The manufacturer seems to be bringing new smartphones onto the market every week , which are intended to attract customers with an even more aggressive price-performance ratio. Given that, these numbers are more than sobering, especially since things are not going well for smartwatches either .

With this “a lot helps a lot” strategy, Xiaomi is reminiscent of Samsung’s former business practices. Up until a few years ago, the South Koreans also flooded the market with countless, almost indistinguishable smartphones.

Model Samsung
However , the industry leader has got the curve , now relies on “class instead of mass” and has caught up massively, especially in the area of ​​software and ecosystem. Hardly any other manufacturer, apart from Google itself, delivers Android updates so quickly and so long. And the interaction of the different devices – from smartphones and tablets to smartwatches and in-ear headphones – is making enormous progress and is now almost as good as the big Apple model.

Smartphones are just a playing field of Xiaomi:

Xiaomi celebrates gigantic success with cheap Android phones

Redmi Note 10 Pro
Xiaomi has worked its way up to become one of the largest smartphone manufacturers in the world in recent years. In a few years, the Chinese company wants to become number one. Not only cell phones that have the Xiaomi branding have helped, but especially the cheap brands. Now a great success has been shared with the community.

Xiaomi celebrates huge success with Redmi smartphones
We keep reporting on new Xiaomi smartphones that offer surprisingly good value for money. These are often Redmi models. Xiaomi has been offering real price-performance hits like the Redmi Note 10 Pro with this sub-brand for several years now. But there are countless other models that sell extremely well. This is now also proven by the figures that the company has shared.

Xiaomi has now publicly announced that over 240 million Redmi smartphones alone have been sold so far . A gigantic success that the Chinese company is rightly celebrating:

Redmi smartphones are very popular because you basically get Xiaomi hardware, just a bit cheaper. And the smartphones are technically up to date with 120 Hz displays, fast processors, stylish designs, good cameras and large batteries. In addition, there is usually even a 5G modem directly, so that you are also secured in the coming years. MIUI from Xiaomi is also used as the interface.

XIAOMI BLACK SHARK 4S PRO MOST EFFICIENT IN DECEMBER 2021

For the third month in a row, the best phone in the AnTuTu performance test is the Xiaomi Black Shark 4S Pro . The father of the success of the giant Xiaomi is the Snapdragon 888+ processor and 16 GB of RAM.

Perhaps the list of the most efficient phones in the AnTuTu test would look different if the latest models with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor were taken into account. Unfortunately, due to too little data and too short time from the launch, the latest models with this processor could not yet be included. I wonder what the January comparison will look like when the Motorola Moto Edge X30 , Xiaomi 12 or Xiaomi 12 Pro enters the game . At the moment, the Nubia Red Magic 6S Pro is in second place . There is also Vivo iQOO 8 Pro on the box .

Flagship Android Phones Performance Listing for December 2021 www.antutu.com
Vivo iQOO Z5 is the leader among the “middle class” . Honor 60 Pro is second in this classification , and Oppo Reno7 closes the podium . Interestingly, all three of the best mediums have a Snapdragon 778G + processor.

Which Xiaomi smartphones will get MIUI 13 first?

Soon, according to information, Xiaomi is to release the latest version of its overlay, i.e. MIUI 13. The exact date is not yet known, but the network is getting more and more leaks, mainly regarding smartphone models that will get the update.

MIUI 12 debuted over a year ago, seven months after the premiere of MIUI 11. We expected Xiaomi to maintain a similar pace and release the next version of the overlay in the following months. It turned out not to be. The stable version of Android 12 has been with us for some time, other smartphone manufacturers have already boasted about their overlays, meanwhile Xiaomi is still delaying. Probably the premiere of Xiaomi 12, or at least this is indicated by rumors.

MIUI 13 – for which smartphones?
The latest ones, however, do not concern the presentation date, but smartphones that are to receive the update first. The new leak reveals that MIUI 13 will get the flagship smartphones Xiaomi 11 Ultra and Xiaomi 11. It shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone, just like the update for Redmi K40 Pro and Redmi K40 Pro +. These are the latest flagships in the manufacturer’s offer, although new generations of these series will appear soon.

More surprising is the fact that the leak also points to the mid-range Xiaomi 11 Youth Edition, which is also expected to get MIUI 13 in the first round. Earlier reports did not mention this model. Of course, now you can not be 100% sure, after all, this is not official information. We also expect that the list will also include other smartphones, such as the Xiaomi Mix 4, but we have to wait a little longer to confirm our guesses, because Xiaomi still has not specified the release date.

Xiaomi increases the energy density of batteries




Xiaomi not only builds many Android smartphones, but also develops existing technologies to make the end devices better. Now the Chinese company has achieved a breakthrough from which all Xiaomi smartphones should benefit. It’s about the battery life.

The batteries built into smartphones and other devices decide whether they can be used for a shorter or longer period. No matter how great the smartphone is, if the battery life doesn’t match, it’s a disappointment in everyday life. And here Xiaomi has made a small breakthrough. Thanks to a new technology, the Chinese company has been able to increase the capacity of the energy storage system by 10 percent without changing the size of the battery.

Xiaomi expects the runtime of smartphones to be extended by 100 minutes. The increase in energy density was achieved through a higher silicon content in the battery. 10 percent may not seem like much at first, but in everyday life they could decide whether a smartphone will last the whole day or fail shortly beforehand . If a smartphone previously had a 5,000 mAh battery, the capacity would increase to 5,500 mAh with the new technology. That really is a difference.

However, it is particularly important that Xiaomi has increased the energy density without changing the size of the battery. This means that users have no disadvantage in terms of design or dimensions. Xiaomi could easily extend the battery life or build thinner devices . Both options are now open to the group.




Xiaomi 12 Pro: Top smartphone should bring a real surprise



Xiaomi 11T Pro
Xiaomi will soon introduce some new high-end smartphones. Many details about the Xiaomi 12, 12 Pro and 12 Ultra have already surfaced. But now there is a new rumor that the Xiaomi 12 Pro has an additional feature that the Chinese company has rarely used so far. This would change the design of the smartphone significantly.

Xiaomi 12 Pro with sub-display camera?
A lot of information about the new Xiaomi 12 smartphones has surfaced in the last few weeks and months. The Xiaomi 12 Ultra should lose its second display on the back and get a huge camera in return. Then the normal Xiaomi 12 should get a smaller battery, which also doesn’t charge as quickly . According to a new source, the Xiaomi 12 Pro should now be equipped with a sub-display camera (source: XaiomiUI ).

That would be a big step for Xiaomi, because so far a sub-display camera has only been installed in the Xiaomi Mi Mix 4, which is only offered in China. The Xiaomi 12 Pro will most likely be launched worldwide and is certainly not a smartphone that you can experiment with. With a sub-display camera, the look of the front would be greatly improved, because you would basically get a borderless and interruption-free smartphone .

The only problem with under-display cameras is that the sensors, as the name suggests, are located under the display and the image quality suffers as a result . So far, no smartphone manufacturer has managed to even begin to achieve good image quality with a sub-display camera. If Xiaomi succeeded in doing this with the new 12 Pro, it would be a big and important step for the entire industry. To be honest, we doubt this rumor, but we are happy to be surprised by the opposite.

The Chinese manufacturer has already confirmed the processor for the Xiaomi 12.

Xiaomi 11T Pro – a successful smartphone with a phenomenal 120 W charging

Everyone dreams of a flagship smartphone but the high prices of flagship smartphones shatter our dream. Basically, we have two solutions to this problem. The first is to lower your expectations and look for a solid average. The second is to find a smartphone that does not give way to the flagship competition on paper, and we can easily buy it below within our budget. An example of such a device is the Xiaomi 11T Pro, which I had the opportunity to test in recent weeks. What can this model do? Is it worth considering buying it?

Benefits

Xiaomi has once again proved that it can make a great impression with the screen, speakers and performance in its smartphones. In addition, the 11T Pro model has a solid battery that we can recharge in the blink of an eye. When it comes to the weaknesses of this smartphone, the device gets dirty very easily, it also gets very hot.

Xiaomi 11T Pro – Technical specification

The smartphone is packed in an aesthetic, white box with gold inscriptions, very similar to those of the Xiaomi 11T and Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE . Inside you will also find a key for the SIM card tray, a simple, transparent case, a cable and an unusual charger. It is distinguished from the average accessory of this type by its size and weight – it is really big and heavy. As you can imagine, it may be related to the power of up to 120 W. There was also a protective foil that was immediately glued to the display.

Construction and quality of the smartphone.

Xiaomi 11T Pro is a phone with large dimensions that weighs its own. Some activities on the smartphone with one hand may require some exercise on the part of the user. On the other hand, the smartphone is very well felt in the pocket and we will certainly find out if, for example, we forget to take it. The device is solid and well-fitted, only the back panel is slightly bent under the pressure of the fingers, which is not a particular problem, however.

The back of the device resembles brushed metal, which will be more to some people and less to others. In my opinion, the end result is good, although unfortunately, the smartphone’s backs collect dirt very easily . Only the frame around the device, which is matte, does not get dirty.

The bottom edge of the reviewed smartphone is occupied by one of the two speakers, a USB-C port and a SIM card tray. On the right side of the device there are buttons for adjusting the volume and turning on the phone. The switch also has a fingerprint reader, which is fast and accurate . The left edge of the Xiaomi 11T Pro remained blank. At the top we find the second of the pair of speakers. The Harman Kardon set could be slightly louder, but I must admit that it sounds good for the speakers in the phone, the sound is very clear, there are no noise or other distortions.

If someone does not like large islands with cameras, I have bad news for him – the one in the 11T Pro is really big and it is very noticeable . In my opinion, the island in Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE looks much nice . As for the front of the smartphone – the screen is surrounded by not very thick frames, and the manufacturer put on a round hole in the screen.

Screen in Xiaomi 11T Pro

The Mi 10T Pro had a 6.67 ″ IPS screen with a 144 Hz refresh rate. Compared to its predecessor, the 11T Pro model has a slightly lower refresh rate (120 Hz), but the display used is AMOLED . The resolution has changed slightly (2400 × 1080 px in the 11T Pro, 2340 × 1080 px in the Mi 10T Pro).

The screen of the reviewed smartphone deserves praise. The viewing angles are very good, I have no objections to the sharpness of the image and the displayed colors . Adjusting the brightness allows you to comfortably use the smartphone both in the sun and in almost complete darkness. The 120 Hz refresh rate is enough to make the content scrolling very smoothly.

A solid battery and phenomenal charging

The battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh is nothing to complain about. It is enough for 1.5 days of really intensive use , and many people will probably be able to reach 2 days without major problems

The smartphone can be charged to 100% in less than 20 minutes . Every minute, a few percent increases. This is a great result. Of course, to achieve it, you need to use the included 120W charger. A phone connected to a different charger or e.g. to a computer will charge much slower.

Xiaomi boasts the TÜV Rheinland Safe Fast-Charge System certificate and 34 safety functions. The battery should withstand 800 charging cycles in efficiency.

Photo opportunities

Pictures taken during the day are very nice, especially their colors are worth paying attention to. The photos are detailed and stay clear even when you bring them close. Xiaomi 11T Pro also deals with macro photos and background blurring.

Photos after dark also look very good at first glance. However, when we decide to bring them closer, it turns out that it is not perfect. We have to take into account some noise or other imperfections. Despite this, there is nothing to complain about, especially since we get the automatic Night 2S mode , which significantly improves the situation.

Xiaomi 11T Pro allows you to record videos in 720p, 1080p, 4K and 8K . In the case of 1080p and 4K, we can take advantage of image recording in 60 fps. There is also video stabilization, but it is possible to use it only when recording in 1080p and 30 fps. Of course, the best films are recorded during the day. They can look great, especially when we choose 4K resolution in combination with 60 fps. The Super macro mode is also noteworthy , as it allows you to record small objects up close in good quality.

Xiaomi 11T Pro software, performance and user experience

Xiaomi 11T Pro works under the control of Android 11 with the MIUI 12.5 overlay . In terms of interface and functionality, the phone is not surprising – it offers the same as other models from the same manufacturer. After downloading all the updates, the smartphone has the security patches from September 1 this year.

The combination of the Snapdragon 888 with 8 GB of RAM gives reason to believe that there will be no problems with using the Xiaomi 11T Pro. I must admit that the smartphone works very smoothly in everyday use. Usually, applications are launched very quickly, and the phone does not get out of breath when we run many programs in the background . Unfortunately, sometimes the smartphone heats up too much. It happens while fast charging or playing games. Speaking of games, it is worth mentioning that the 11T Pro, as predicted, has no problems with them, even with very high graphics settings. On the charts below, you can see how the reviewed smartphone performed in benchmark tests.

Xiaomi 11T Pro is undoubtedly another successful smartphone from the Chinese manufacturer. The device works great in everyday use, as well as in situations when we expect something more from it. Compared to the 11T model, it has such significant advantages as the Snapdragon 888 processor, Harman Kardon speakers and 120 W fast charging . We will not find this in an ordinary 11T. Everyone has to determine for themselves what their budget for a new smartphone is and how much they are able to pay extra for individual elements of the device’s equipment.
