Xiaomi Redmi Note 11, 11s or 11 Pro 5G: how to choose the best smartphone in this field?

5

Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 11 series comes in many references, including a Redmi Note 11s and a Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G. We have tested them and help you see more clearly among these affordable smartphones, and sometimes very similar.

Xiaomi’s habits will not have escaped your attention. The Chinese brand, number 3 in the world, multiplies the references to better enter the market, regardless of price interest to the consumer. Among these smartphones, we find Redmi, a stamp designed as a brand in itself, whose new batch includes many models. Redmi Note 11 (from € 199.90), Redmi Note 11s (€ 279.90) and Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G (€ 369.90) have thus gone through our laboratories. As they are sold at particularly close prices and offer technical magazines where it is difficult to find your way, we suggest that you take stock of each individual’s qualities and shortcomings, to help you make the best choice.

If you’ve been following the news, you’ll have noticed that Xiaomi has announced two other terminals to complete this trio: the Redmi Note 11s 5G and the Redmi Note 11 Pro + 5G. We will of course complete this file as soon as we have tested these devices. To see more clearly, find the complete technical sheets for these products below:

Ergonomics: 5G requires, Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G wins the point

Redmi Note 11 more or less shares a common ergonomics. This is necessarily the case with the Note 11 and Note 11s, which are based on the same box weighing 179 grams, each presenting a screen that occupies 84.5% of its facade. Also in their honor, the integration of a 3.5mm jack, that of a microSD card holder, a fingerprint reader placed on their edge and an IP53 certification. Note that this means that the dust does not scare them and that they are resistant to splashes, but not that they can be immersed. Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G, which also has these features, is the only one offering 5G support, making it a choice model for those looking for a device that gets the most out of mobile networks. However, it is slightly larger and heavier, with its 202 grams in weight.

Display: Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G front, thanks to 120 Hz

Redmi Note 11 Redmi Note 11s Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G
Maximum brightness 725 cd / m² 768 cd / m² 820 cd / m²
Minimum brightness 1.9 cd / m² 2.2 cd / m 2.5 cd / m²
DeltaE 1.3 1.4 1.5
Color temperature 6720K 6769K 6707K

As you will understand, the Redmi Note 11 and Note 11 share almost all of their elements, as does their 6.43-inch screens. Like the Pro model, they offer an Amoled panel, but differ from it with their 90 Hz refresh rate (non-adaptive) when the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G goes up to 120 Hz (and enjoys a 6.67 inch). Apart from this detail, these three smartphones provide a satisfactory screen, the 11s and 11s manage to exceed 700 cd / m², and the 11 Pro 5G reaches 820 cd / m². We also note a satisfactory colorimetry, with the possibility, with a slight adjustment in the parameters of the three units, to achieve a color temperature of about 6700 K and a deltaE between 1.3 and 1.5, indicating very low color drift. In short, unless you absolutely stick to the 120 Hz refresh rate, there is no need to turn to the most expensive of these Redmi.

Performance: Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G wins

If there is one notable difference between the three Redmi Note 11, it is the chipset that drives them. Redmi Note 11 relies on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680, Redmi Note 11s on a MediaTek Helio G96 and Redmi Note 11 Pro on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 (with 5G modem). It is clear that they all provide a roughly similar experience in the multitasking department and are comfortable to use on a daily basis. They stand out in the gaming area, the 11 model performs very well, with its ability to show an average of 46 fps, well above the 33 fps in the Note 11s. The Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G actually performs a little better (57 fps on average), but at a much higher price: it’s therefore a matter of priority.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 range of performance

Photo: almost perfect resemblance between the three Redmi

Redmi Note 11, all references combined, are not prominent photographers. They certainly perform very well, but there is no need to turn to the most expensive of the range to get the best results. With its 50 megapixel main sensor (f / 1.8 wide-angle optics), the Redmi Note 11 also produces the most usable images, primarily when the light is there, it must be admitted. Despite its 108-megapixel main sensor, the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G does not perform better.
