Design

Since they are all high-end smartphones, all three Mi 11 models are built with premium materials. In it, Mi 11 and Mi 11 Pro have a glass back, while Mi 11 Ultra is made of ceramic.

However, it is difficult to understand that the Mi 11, despite the cheapest price, has a back surface made of sanded glass, creating a “trendy” feeling, professional, and more importantly, a lot less dirt. with the glossy glass back of Mi 11 Pro and ceramic back of Mi 11 Ultra. After only a short time of use, the back of Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra will appear full of fingerprints of users, while this situation is very difficult to see on the regular Mi 11.

If Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra often experience dirt, then the regular Mi 11 with a matte glass back does not have this problem.

And yet, due to the potential zoom camera and larger battery, the Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra are also significantly thicker and heavier than the Mi 11. In which, especially the Mi 11 Ultra with the camera cluster. Convex a lot and weigh up to 234g, giving this machine a pretty rough appearance, plus a relatively uncomfortable feeling when in the pocket of the pants.

The Mi 11 Ultra is a thick, heavy, and pretty coarse machine.

So, as a whole, we appreciate the design of the most popular Mi 11, despite being the cheapest of the Mi 11 series.

Configuration

All three models Mi 11 are equipped with the new and most powerful chip of Qualcomm today is Snapdragon 888. Users have two capacities of RAM to choose from is 8GB or 12GB. In terms of internal memory, the Mi 11 Ultra has a version up to 512GB, while the maximum capacity of the other two models is only 256GB.

All three Mi 11 models are equipped with the Snapdragon 888 chip, the Mi 11 Ultra has a 512GB internal memory version

The screens of the three machines are also almost similar when they are 6.81 inches in size, 2K resolution and Super AMOLED technology. According to the parameters, the screen of Mi 11 Ultra has a maximum brightness of 1700 nits, which is higher than 1500 nits of the other two models, but during actual use, there is not too much difference that users can realize.

The screens of the three machines have similar display quality

All three models also support today’s advanced 5G network technology. In terms of Wi-Fi connectivity, Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra are slightly better thanks to the Wi-Fi 6e standard, compared to the Wi-Fi 6 standard of Mi 11. However, due to the number of new Wi-Fi 6e enabled routers Only counting on the fingers, so this strong point of Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra does not make much sense at the moment.

Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra support the latest Wi-Fi 6e standard, while Mi 11 is Wi-Fi 6

To summarize, all three Mi 11 models are equipped with the current top-class configuration. Although Mi 11 Ultra has a better screen brightness, maximum internal memory capacity and standard Wi-Fi connectivity, but the difference is negligible and most users should not consider them as a reason to Make a purchase decision.

Camera

If the configuration is the factor that all three Mi 11 series models are very similar to, the camera is the factor that the most obvious differentiation.

Camera is the factor that shows the biggest differentiation between the three models

First in terms of the number of cameras, Mi 11, Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra all have 3 cameras. However, the number does not tell everything, because besides the main camera and the super wide-angle camera, the Mi 11’s third camera is the macro camera, while the Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra and the zoom camera. The fact that the macro camera is quite useless and is often just a trick of the manufacturer to increase the number of cameras. So the zoom camera of Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra is a lot more useful.

If you are a person who often shoots objects at a distance, it is clear that the Mi 11 is usually the machine that needs to be eliminated first. At this point, you will have to choose between Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra. Both have telephoto cameras with periscope lenses that allow 5X optical zoom, however this camera on the Mi 11 Ultra has a resolution of 48MP, compared to the 8MP of the Mi 11 Pro. The higher resolution sensor allows Mi 11 Ultra to have a maximum digital zoom of 120X, while the Mi 11 Pro is only 50X.

Mi 11 Pro supports up to 50X zoom, while Mi 11 Ultra supports up to 100X

Not only zoom further, but Mi 11 Ultra also has the advantage in detail. At the same zoom level of 50X, the Mi 11 Ultra can be seen for a higher level of detail than the Mi 11 Pro. Depending on your needs, you will make your own decisions. The Mi 11 Ultra zooms further, but is also thicker, heavier, and of course, pretty much more expensive than the Mi 11 Pro.

At the same zoom level, the Mi 11 Ultra (right) is significantly sharper than the Mi 11 Pro (left).

Not just zoom, another fundamental difference between the Mi 11 models is the main camera. If the Mi 11 has a main camera with 108MP resolution, the Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra are 50MP.

Mi 11 has a 108MP camera, while Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra are only 50MP

Thinking that a higher number of dots will help Mi 11 take better pictures than the other two models, but in reality the opposite is happening. The 108MP sensor on the Mi 11 is essentially Samsung’s old generation HMX sensor, while the 50MP sensor on the Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra is the latest GN2 sensor. Not only is the technology newer, but the sensors of Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra are also larger than Mi 11, which significantly supports the ability to take pictures in low light conditions.

Thanks to the new sensor, Mi 11 Ultra offers significantly better night photography than Mi 11

If you are someone who considers the smartphone camera to be a tool to record everyday moments, the camera of Mi 11 is more than enough to make you satisfied. But if you are someone who cares about image quality, especially the ability to zoom and take pictures in low light, then the upgrades of the Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra are absolutely worth it.

Equipment

The Mi 11 has a 4600mAh battery, while the Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra are 5000mAh. In addition, the Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra are capable of fast charging with a capacity of 67W, while the Mi 11 is 55W. In fact, the difference in battery life and charging speed between these three models is relatively small, and difficult to discern under normal usage conditions.

One worthy device of the Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra that the Mi 11 does not have is water resistance. If the Mi 11 is not water resistant, the Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra are water resistant according to IP68 standards. This will help users be able to use the camera when it rains, or take some pictures underwater at a depth of 1.5m.

However, the most interesting equipment is probably the secondary screen placed on the back of the Mi 11 Ultra. This 1.1-inch OLED screen allows users to take selfies with the rear camera. In addition, users can customize it to display the time,% battery or any image / logo they want. This is quite an interesting and unique item, but practically speaking, it is not really useful for the majority of users.

Price

At the time of this video, Mi 11 has both genuine and portable with prices ranging from 16 to 18 million. Meanwhile, Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra are currently only portable products from China, and there is no information about whether Xiaomi will distribute this duo in Vietnam or not. In the portable market, Mi 11 Pro has a starting price of 20 million VND, while Mi 11 Ultra is 26 million VND.

summary

Out of the three models in the Mi 11 series, we believe that the regular Mi 11 is still the one worth buying. This machine inherits up to 90% of the technology of the other two models, while the price is significantly cheaper and the design is somewhat more elegant. At the present time, users who buy Mi 11 also have many choices both genuine and portable.

Of the three Mi 11 models, we think the “regular” Mi 11 is still the one worth buying.

The most missing thing on the Mi 11 compared to the other two models is the zoom camera. If you don’t zoom often, then obviously this shouldn’t be a problem. But if you are a hobbyist, the Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra models are well worth your consideration. If the Mi 11 Ultra is an expensive smartphone with a ridiculous design, the Mi 11 Pro proves more balanced in design and price, while still giving users value for use in the 8MP potential zoom camera. .

The Mi 11 Ultra is packed with the most tech, but its high price and ridiculous look make it not that appealing.

Obviously, if you do not care about the downsides of the appearance and instead want to get the best and most unique, the Mi 11 Ultra with 120X zoom camera and rear secondary screen is easily the choice for you. However, at a price range of up to 25 million VND, users should consider referencing Samsung’s Galaxy S21 Ultra, which is also equipped with many attractive features like Mi 11 Ultra but has the advantage of the brand “to cheeky “more.
