More screen or better screen?

Little bit

Let's start talking about the panels that mount these two terminals. The POCO X3 Pro screen already surprised locals and strangers in its day, having a 6.67-inch diagonal, FullHD + resolution and very good performance thanks to a peak brightness of 450 nits.

However, although the Redmi Note 11 is smaller, the feeling is more complete, being able to raise the bet up to 1000 nits in some scenarios and 700 nits in HBM . The resolution is identical; the refresh rate, on the other hand, is somewhat lower, at 90Hz and 180Hz in touch sampling.

Redmi Note 11

It should be noted that each model proposes a different philosophy: the POCO X3 is an off-roader protected with Gorilla Glass 6 , while the Redmi Note 11 is more subtle and stylish: it opts for Gorilla Glass 3 and adds IP53 certification. Yes, we can take photos in full rain.

Comparison: how the POCO F3, X3 Pro and the Redmi Note 10 Pro differ

In terms of dots per inch density, the Redmi Note 11 has an advantage, in part due to its smaller inch: 409 dpi compared to 395 dpi. The rest of the elements —aspect ratio and behavior before HDR content— are very similar.

When the customization layer reigns: MIUI 13 versus MIUI 12

{"videoId":"x86mmkp","autoplay":true,"title":"MIUI 13 y MIUI 13 Pad: Todas las NOVEDADES y DISPONIBILIDAD"}

When we talk about updates, it is clear that the younger mobile "wins", since it has advantages. The new Redmi Note 11 mounts the latest version of MIUI 13 based on Android 11 , although it is possible that a future update will bring Material You features. In addition, Xiaomi has promised three years of security updates.

Beside him, the POCO X3 Pro pales, despite having MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition and very good performance in all usage scenarios . It is clear that if you are looking for "the latest", the new Redmi Note 11 is the logical choice.

Size (and weight) matters, and a lot

Models

The POCO X3 Pro (and the X3 NFC model, from which it inherits its aesthetics) is a heavy and ostentatious terminal for some users. Its measurements of 165.3 x 76.8 x 9.4 mm and its 215 grams of weight are above the average in the entry range.

An extra size that he takes advantage of to incorporate a little more battery – although, in practice, this does not manifest itself as a higher autonomy , since the higher refresh rate and the screen size work against him.

The Redmi Note 11, on the other hand, is a lighter mobile and comfortable at hand, very compact and with stylized and straight frames, with 159.87 x 73.87 x 8.09 mm and 179 grams of weight . While it's not as light as the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE , it does manage to feel very comfortable in everyday use.

And what about the camera?

{"videoId":"x80bbw8","autoplay":false,"title":"POCO X3 PRO ANÁLISIS tras primera toma de contacto - ¡ES LO QUE ESTÁS BUSCANDO!"}

Here we must speak clearly: POCO wins the game in the selfie camera, mounting a 20 MP f/2.2 sensor with good performance in dark settings. Compared to the 13 MP f/2.4 of the Redmi Note 11, the victory belongs to the first.

The rear camera is another story. In fact, we must reverse the accolade. The Redmi Note 11 is supported by a combo of four sensors led by 50 MP, an 8 MP ultra wide angle, 2 megapixel macro and another 2 MP depth sensor. The POCO X3 Pro has a sensor with smaller pixels, so it is able to absorb less light and achieve darker photos with more artificial contrast.

So you can improve the photos of your POCO X3 Pro, Redmi Note 10 and other Xiaomi thanks to the new GCam 8.4

And, for the rest, we could consider them brothers, as they both have Bluetooth 5, dual WiFi, dual SIM, infrared, UBS-C connection, identical fast charge (with charger built into the box), NFC connectivity and the beloved headphone jacks —We still do not have information related to the type of DAC that the Redmi Note 11 mounts, although we recommend you take a look at our latest analysis— .

Two phones, in conclusion, with an excellent value for money, almost unbeatable. And here lies the key: although the POCO X3 Pro is "more mobile" in some features, Xiaomi has known how to do its homework with a very combative Redmi Note 11 that tips the scales in its favor.
