Best 2 phone review
Xiaomi has confused yea us with the sheer number of mind-priced smartphones it’s released over the history of 12 to 18 months. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G NE, the Xiaomi Mi 10T-Lite, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro, and the Xiaomi Poco F3 all lurk around the$ 400/£ 300 price point.
The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G NE might represent a small jump up in price, but it could be the elegant mid-range of the lot. Well, it was for six months, until the Mi 11 Lite 5G NE came out. This device has a better chipset, comes in a new color, and has a beaucoup additional camera modes-and that is it.

As an affordable way to the flagship Xiaomi Mi 11 (and the luxury yacht that’s the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra), the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G NE is meant to reflect the line’s bold 2021 design refresh, as well as a gesture at some of its specialized advancements, but for a far more wherewithal–friendly price ticket.
It manages to do just that with a satiny design that’s as skinny as it’s light. It might have a plastic frame, but the Mi 11 Lite 5G NE glass back looks and feels reassuringly valuable.
We’re also impressed at how fleetly the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G NE proves to be. By using a new Snapdragon 780G chip, the phone approaches the 2020 flagship standings of speed. Mobile gamers on a budget will want to take note.

Flashed March 29, 2021, released April 16
. Only out in the UK-improbable to come to the US or Australia
Pricing£ 399 ( roughly$ 550/AU$ 755)
The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G was proclaimed on March 29, 2021, and it landed in UK shops in April after a fair degree of holdup and mistrustfulness.
It costs£ 399 ( around$ 550/AU$ 755) for the sole model, which gives you 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of the internal warehouse.
This places the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G into direct competition with the OnePlus Nord range, as well as the Pixel 5a/ Pixel 4a, the Samsung Galaxy A52 5G, and yea Xiaomi’s own Poco F3. It’s a competitive field all right.
Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G NE
Design of Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G NE
Shiny plastic edging and bold, visually enchanting glass reverse. Extremely thin and light at6.8 mm/ 159g
The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G NE design is a considerable breakthrough over the common Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite, while it wisely keeps a couple of the bolder essentials of the Xiaomi Mi 10T-Lite.
Xiaomi has sprucely done out with the dated teardrop selfie camera of the Mi 10 Lite and has shifted its punch-hole druthers over to the left-hand corner, like the full-fat Xiaomi Mi 11. The embracing bezels are fairly the lowest, albeit slightly thicker around the chin, which is a denoting sign of a more affordable phone.
6.55- inch 1080 x 2400 AMOLED screen
90Hz refresh rate
800 nits peak radiance, 500 nits typical. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G NE packs a6.55- inch display with a 1080 x 2400 resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate.
That’s lower and technically less fluid than the Xiaomi Mi 10T-Lite before it (which was6.67- height and 120Hz), not to mention the meaningful cheaper Poco X3 NFC. But the Mi 11 Lite has the added benefit of being an AMOLED panel. And not just any AMOLED, but one with 10- bit color depth support, which is suitable for outputting1.07 billion colors (64 times other than its prototype).
You also get the usual AMOLED benefit of being suitable to yield true blacks, which really comes into its own with the always-on display and subtle edge release lighting vitality…
64MP main detector takes good shots in daylight
8MPultra-wide is like bad
2x whir shots crop in, but look like good
. Night mode is a mixed bag compared to the prototype
The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G has a triadic camera setup on the reverse, which is one lower than both the Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite and the Xiaomi Mi 10T-Lite before it.
Not that we’re complaining-in both cases, two of those were nigh-on useless depth and macro detectors. Presently you just have the single 5MP macro detector to ignore.
Specs and performance
Snapdragon 780G approaches 2020 flagship degrees of performance
Together with stereo speakers, it’s a great affordable gaming phone
. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G uses an advanced grade processor than the plain Mi 11 Lite that’s available in some habitats.
Where the 4G-only model uses a Snapdragon 732G like the Poco X3 NFC, this 5G model that we’re testing adopts the new Snapdragon 780G. Despite what the name might suggest to you, this is an enormously more competent chip that’s been erected using the same processing technology and edifice as the flagship Snapdragon 888.
It Runs Android 11 with MIUI 12 on top
Bloated and sometimes unintuitive interface
Loads of useful customization options
The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G NE runs MIUI 12 on top of Android 11, just like its big folk the Xiaomi Mi 11. And while it’s still not the most tasteful custom Android skin on the demand, it’s one of the better all-around mimics.
It still suffers from way too important bloat though. However, let’s face it, we’re going to have to, If we’ve to write about our puzzlement at the presence of Xiaomi’s own Mi Browser alongside Google Chrome one else time … well. It’s presently, and it’s just as insane as ever.
Xiaomi’s own suite of apps stretches to include its own Music, Video, Gallery, Security, and Themes vittles. You also get a Soap for tidying up those memory-ruling apps and trains, which is handy, though we remonstrate to being shown a full runner release every time we do so. Those releases rear their vile heads when installing apps, too.
