In this review let's go to the discovery of Xiaomi 11t pro, which is one of the most anticipated smartphones of the year. And as you will see from the next lines, the device in question has paid off all the expectations of consumers and professionals.
In fact, it didn't happen to me to feel strong enthusiasm for a top of the range branded Xiaomi, from the presentation of Mi 8. In fact, the various flagships that have followed over time always had small or large defects that have not been able to make me fall in love, but with the advent of this device I must admit that my passion for technology has returned more stronger than ever. The reason for this statement I will tell you in this one Xiaomi 11T Pro review.
Xiaomi 11T Pro review: here is the whole technical sheet
As always, we start this journey to discover the new Xiaomi Mi 11T Pro, analyzing the contents of the sales package which is presented in a white color and the number 11 in gold on the front of the box lid. Little information so as not to spoil the surprise of the discovery of the device, while the content is composed as follows:
- Xiaomi 11T Pro;
- Pin for removing the SIM tray;
- Manuals and warranty;
- Transparent silicone protection cover;
- USB Type-C cable for charging and data transfer;
- Wall power supply with European socket and max output 20V / 6.0A - 120W.
Quick charge 120W - from 0 to 100 in 17 minutes
You read that right and it is not a typo, in the Xiaomi 11T Pro package it integrates a powerful 120W charger which will allow you to charge the device from 0 to 100% in 17 minutes only while with only 10 minutes of charge you will reach 72%. Dizzying numbers that will definitely appeal to all those who are careful not to stay dry during their day.
But don't think that such a quick charge is synonymous with low autonomy, as the flagship of the Chinese house counts on a battery from 5000 mAh, which actually consists of two units of 2500 mAh each, which give an autonomy of at least 6 hours of active screen, making the most of the hardware potential of the device, so you always take a working day home without having to resort with micro refills or other.
This is possible thanks to innovative technologies such as the double charging column, the structure of the two-cell battery, the MTW, the application of graphene on the lithium-ion battery and the Mi-FC technology. Battery safety is ensured by a TÜV Rheinland Safe Fast-Charge System certification, 34 battery charging and safety functions, and real-time temperature monitoring. Furthermore, although not advertised by the brand, Mi 11T Pro allows you to recharge other devices, thus boasting a reverse charging functionality.
Ok we have already addressed the theme of autonomy from which you will have already learned the goodness of this top of the range that responds to the name of Xiaomi 11T Pro, a device that does not offer particular iconicity on an aesthetic level but that knows how to be appreciated for its excellent construction and materials used.
We are talking about a glass body that tapers along the profiles and which is particularly pleasant even in the graphite color, whose painting recalls the effect of brushed metal. The only interruption on the rear is given by the photographic module, whose protrusion is considerably reduced compared to what we are used to with other terminals.
Dimensions and ergonomics
The surface is not slippery and theergonomics is really crazy, so pleasant as to allow the use of the smartphone even by a single hand net of not exactly compact dimensions.
164,1 x 76,9 x 8,8 mm for 204 grams weight are the identity card of Mi 11T Pro: abundant numbers on paper but which in the engineering optimization of the device are well balanced giving perfect ergonomics. The left profile of the smartphone is completely smooth while on the right one we find the volume rocker and the power key, which also incorporates the sensor for unlocking via fingerprints, whose position is perfect for performing the action both with the right hand. what a left.
A good choice by Xiaomi, that of integrating the biometric sensor below the power button, as the reactivity and reliability of the release is much better than the usual sensors used below the display. In the upper profile we find the IR transmitter, the second microphone and the second speaker that is accompanied by the Harman Kardon writing, the company that took care of the sound that comes out of Mi 11T Pro.
Audio at the highest level
The first speaker instead we find it in the lower profile of the device, together with the main microphone, the USB Type-C input for charging and data transfer, which also supports OTG but no video output, and finally the SIM tray. In this regard, there is no micro SD card slot but there are 2 SIM slots, in nano format, with support for the new generation 5G connectivity on both slots.
Personally I do not have a telephone service that offers me 5G and in any case where I live this technology does not arrive, but despite this I managed to obtain record speeds, with a 4G + signal that is always constant, a sign that the X60 modem provided by Qualcomm is really quality.
As for the stereo sound of Xiaomi 11T Pro, I have only praise to do, as the sound frequencies are well reproduced, with a good dose of bass giving body to the multimedia track reproduced, but above all the stereo sound is also usable in hands-free mode, with excellent performance even when you are traveling by car. Moreover, at the software level there is the Dolby Atmos support and if you encounter content with this technology, you will notice the difference with amazing results.
True top-of-the-range display
Another marvel of Xiaomi 11T Pro is the display, a 6,67-inch unit diagonal in 20: 9 format. The technology on board is AMOLED while the resolution of the panel is 2400 x 1080 pixels Full HD + with support for Widevine L1 and HDR10 + contents.
But the real feast for the eyes is given by the screen refresh rate which reaches 120 Hz while the touch sampling rate is 480 Hz, as well as being able to take advantage of a peak brightness of 1000 nits, all protected by a glass Corning Gorilla Glass Foods as well as from a plastic film pre-applied by the company.
All this to say that the reproduced chromatic fidelity is truly unique of its kind and that the on-screen viewing of contents is guaranteed even under direct sunlight, but above all that films, TV series and videos / images in general will be a delight for the eyes.
There are also dedicated settings and functions to not strain the eyes, but above all the refresh rate can be selected on values of 60 and 120 Hz, while a future update will bring the AdaptiveSync function which will automatically adapt the refresh rate based on what is viewed on the screen, thus allowing to save battery. The only negative is that the certification Widevine L1 it is not recognized by Amazon Prime Video.
The splendid design work of Xiaomi 11T Pro is also confirmed by the very small frames surrounding the display. These are symmetrical to each other and the WOW effect is guaranteed. There is no notification LED but this is because AMOLED technology allows you to take advantage of the Always On Display function with further graphic customizations dedicated to it, as for receiving notifications.
Finally, on the upper frame there is a large ear capsule, brightness and proximity sensor that both do their job very well, indeed I want to hearten all users that you will not find yourself in the call phase to push millions of keys with your cheek, because the proximity sensor is real, well calibrated and works like God.
Xiaomi 11T Pro muscles and speed
The time has come for Xiaomi 11T Pro to show its muscles and its power which is guaranteed by the processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, octa-core solution clocked at 2.8 GHz and 5 nm production process which is accompanied by the X60 5G modem and Adreno 660 GPU. Compared to other terminals that I have tried with the same SoC, Xiaomi 11T Pro keeps overheating at bay thanks to a vapor chamber cooling and in fact during my tests / benchmarks I have never noticed sudden temperature rises and above all the performances have always remained constant, with no lag, slowdowns and / or sudden freezes.
Performance also guaranteed by the presence of 8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM memory as well as 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage not expandable. On the market you can also find the variant from 8/128 GB and 12/256 GB but in Italy only the variants with 8 GB of RAM will arrive, which I believe more than enough to satisfy all the cravings of geeks and not.
In any case, with this equipment, the Xiaomi 11T Pro flies straight to the goal, taking every action required without batting an eye. Personally I am not a user attached to the technical data sheet of a terminal, but this Xiaomi 11T Pro is really appreciated for its equipment and it will be difficult for me to return to a simple mid-range of the past.
Excellent too connectivity, which offers in addition to the aforementioned 5G and IR transmitter also the presence of a Bluetooth 5.2, GPS, WiFi 6 and NFC for mobile payments and other functions. The only absent is the 3,5 mm jack input, but surely you will have TWS headphones with you, which will always remain connected and stable to the smartphone precisely because of the Bluetooth 5.2 to which also wearables and other appropriate accessories can be associated.
I will not mention anything about the software, which is expressed through the Android 11 operating system with customization via MIUI 12.5.5 Global Stable and security patches updated in July 2021. Mi 11T Pro will be one of the first to receive the new MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition as well as MIUI 13 therefore it makes no sense to retrace all the wonders of MIUI 12, although I would like to clarify that this smartphone seems to be free from the usual bugs seen on other terminals.
Professional photos and videos
One of the aspects that generally have failed in the past top of the Chinese brand is that related to photography and video, but Mi 11T Pro does not disappoint even in this area, being able to count on a 108 MP primary sensor, f / 1,75, 8, an ultrawide 120 MP sensor with 2,2 ° FOV, f / 5 and a third 2,43 MP sensor with macro function, f / XNUMX.
These 3 optics are inserted inside a rectangular block in which a dual tone LED flash and a microphone dedicated to the Zoom Audio function are also inserted, which will allow you to amplify the audio captured while zooming on a subject. Also surprising is the video recording that can go up to 8K at 30 fps albeit with a limitation of 8 minutes of capture. But both in this resolution and at 4K 60 fps we can also benefit from the HDR10 + mode, which will therefore make your videos even more professional.
Always at the level of functions we then find the cinematographic effects already seen on Mi 11 such as the Parallel World or the Magic Zoom just to name a few, but apart from that the result fully convinces, thanks also to a super fast and cinematic focus as well as an EIS stabilization that works so well it feels optical.
And the photos? Well, even the photos are worthy of the top-of-the-range title, with a wealth of detail and sharpness that are truly excellent and the results obtained in macro mode are equally good, which can also be used to shoot almost documentary videos.
Strangely, it is the night mode that doesn't excite, so much so that often the photos are better in the standard mode, but I think everything can improve with a future update. Even the selfie camera knows its stuff, giving shots that go far beyond social sharing and in fact the goodness of the sensor can also be seen in the video capture, with resolution up to 1080p 60 fps with the further benefit of stabilization.
