Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro, analysis: the perfect balance is also a lack of risk

The Redmi Note 11 family is one of the largest that Xiaomi has ever had . It is a very complete saga, and in which there are very few differences between some of its devices, beyond the name.

First of all, it must be taken into account that for Xiaomi the Redmi Note range is one of the most important, as the company announced during the launch of the Note 11S and Pro+ models, this family and has reached the incredible figure of 250 million units sold in the world.

a different design

Although the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 saga is made up of many models , each one is aimed at a specific audience, although they all share a very similar design line. In this case, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro has slight changes in the photographic configuration, where the main 108-megapixel sensor is the protagonist.

The body continues to offer a solid build and a good feel, despite being extremely dirty. In this case the color changes depending on the incidence of light. The finish of the device is composed of matte glass and

If we look at the right side we find the on/off and lock button. The fingerprint sensor is integrated into it. Next to it are the volume up and down buttons.

The upper part houses a microphone for recording videos , an infrared sensor, a multimedia speaker and the 3.5 mm jack, which despite being in danger of extinction, some manufacturers are still betting on it, which is very good news.

Finally, the USB type C is integrated in the lower part, accompanied by the microphone for calls and the tray for nanoSIM cards . It should be noted that it is a large device, which makes it difficult to manage with one hand. Its weight is 202 grams , although it has not been a problem for us on a day-to-day basis.

Xiaomi bets on good panels

Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro, analysis

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro has a 6.67-inch screen built on AMOLED technology . It is a panel that offers good colors, despite the fact that they are calibrated in such a way that they attract a lot of attention, but that do not correspond to reality.

It has a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz , which makes it possible for you to enjoy a very fluid experience when using the smartphone. The brightness is another of the great assets of this device, it reaches up to 1,200 nits , which means that you will not have to worry even when the sun shines.

The viewing angles are very good thanks to the fact that it is a flat screen. Of course, the automatic brightness is too aggressive and we go from having the maximum brightness to being so dark that if there is some light it is difficult to even see the content on the screen.

The touch screen works in a very agile way and the screen resolution is more than enough to be able to play all kinds of content. It looks sharp. As far as the audio is concerned, this has surprised us, since it is heard very well and has a high volume thanks to

No 5G connectivity, but enough power for most

Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro, analysis

The big drawback of this device is that it integrates a processor, specifically the Mediatek Helio G96 , which is a chip that is solvent enough to be able to run all kinds of games with average graphic quality, but it is not compatible with the 5G network .

In general terms, it works very well, in part because Xiaomi has also optimized MIUI 13 to the maximum so that it moves very lightly. We have played games as demanding as Asphalt 9 or Genshing Impact and although it is true that in Asphalt 9 with the graphics at half throttle it works correctly, in Genshing Impact we do see lag, jerks and the device begins to heat up, something normal considering its power.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro, analysis

Making use of social networks and games that do not require such great graphic power, the device has behaved really well .

Beyond performance, what we would like to highlight is that this is the same processor that mounts its cousin, the POCO M4 Pro 4G , and whose price difference is 80 euros . It is understood that the qualitative leap has been in cameras and in a better construction, but to discover it, we will have to continue reading.

MIUI 13 under Android 11

Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro, analysis

That the new generation of the Redmi note already comes out of the box with MIUI 13 is very good news . What is not so good is that they are based on Android 11 , the version of Android that is older than the one we find today. However, the vast majority of MIUI 13 features, including improved system performance, are implemented and make for a really good experience.

The main problem with the software, as is often the case with many Xiaomi devices, is bloatware . The mobile itself comes with many pre-installed applications and games that we are probably not going to use, and that can be uninstalled, but that have been taking up space since we took it out of the box.

Let's hope that Xiaomi updates the Redmi Note 11 family to Android 12 , despite the fact that, as we say, it is not a drama, but it would be nice if Android 12 reached the whole family.

108 megapixels per flag

Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro, analysis

Xiaomi loves to integrate sensors with a huge number of megapixels into its devices. This time they have been nothing more and nothing less than 108 megapixels . It is a fairly popular sensor in the smartphone world and with which he wants to give the last name to Pro to this model.

As we usually say, despite the fact that this model integrates a 108-megapixel sensor, the truth is that the captures we make are not made at such a resolution , but rather to take advantage of said resolution we have to use a specific mode that comes built into the camera.

The reason is that beyond the weight of the photographs, they use Quad Pixel technology , which is responsible for joining four pixels in one to offer more light. The results obtained are generally correct.

As in other phones in the saga, we can get good captures as long as the lighting conditions are adequate. The color variety and sharpness makes the photographs very well defined.

We have a shortcut to a 2x digital zoom that can be useful in some circumstances. It should be noted that the digital zoom is up to 10x.

10x digital zoom

In night situations, the shots improve a lot by using the night mode, although in this case we must activate it manually. The photographs taken with this mode offer much greater image sharpness, bearing in mind at all times that we are talking about night photography, in which noise can be seen .

It is worth mentioning that the depth sensor will be responsible for offering better results in portrait mode.

If we talk about the ultra wide angle sensor, this allows us to capture large elements or places from close up. A distortion is seen in the images that despite being smoothed by software, this is still noticeable.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro, analysis

At night it is a sensor that offers results in which a lot of noise appears , because it needs a lot of light to achieve good results.

It should be noted that the macro in this case has surprised us for the better, despite its low resolution, it offers very good colors. It is very useful to capture details of the day.

Selfies at a good level in all situations

Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro, analysis

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro has a 16-megapixel front sensor. It offers good daytime results, despite applying a slight porcelain effect . It is quite angular, so we will not have problems when taking photos with friends.

At night, the results that we can achieve with good lighting are quite correct, although since it is a night photograph, it is inevitable that noise will appear in the image.

A video at the height of the input range

This device supports video recording up to 1080p at 30fps . A sufficient resolution, but that can be fair to us on some occasion. It is possible to record both with the main sensor and with the ultra wide angle, but not to switch between them while we are recording.

During the day the results are correct, the stabilization is correct and the focus is quite fast. In general terms, it does its job quite well. Of course, the sound is canned and lacks fluidity.

At night, as with the rest of the photographic section, noise appears, stabilization worsens and sharpness leaves a lot to be desired.

Battery to get through the day without problem

Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro, analysis

The 5,000 mAh battery accompanied by a fast charge at 67 W is a winning combination . We can enjoy the mobile charged from 0 to 100% in approximately 40 minutes. The autonomy we have obtained is as follows:

  • 8 hours of screen using WiFi and without executing too demanding processes.
  • 6.5 hours of active screen using both WiFi and mobile data with the use of GPS, Bluetooth and social networks.
  • 5 hours of active screen running demanding games over mobile data.

In general terms, it is a fairly good autonomy, it also comes into play that it is not compatible with the 5G network because this means that the best available network does not have to be continuously , despite the fact that said network has not yet been fully deployed. .

Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro, the opinion of xiaomist

Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro, analysis

In general terms, it is a great option for those who are looking for a very complete terminal without the 5G network being essential. Now, the problem with this mobile is that it has war at home.

There are options that offer very similar features, such as the POCO M4 Pro 4G, and that have a lower price despite being inferior in terms of construction and photography.

The truth is that the Redmi Note 11 range is one of the largest in Xiaomi's history, so there are all kinds of options, despite the fact that the company increasingly wants to differentiate itself from the rest of the sub-brand through price, making that this is in the price.
