The Dimensity 920 also uses four Mali-G68 GPUs which should provide a lot of power for a mid-range smartphone. Memory side the device is available with 6/8 GB of LPDDR4X RAM e 128/256 GB of internal storage memory UFS 2.2, but as we have already seen there is also the possibility of expanding the memory via Micro SD. On the connectivity side, the smartphone supports the new generation 5G networks (dual 5G), NFC and Bluetooth 5.2.

We have been using this smartphone for several weeks, it is in daily use no problems whatsoever were encountered as a bug or crash. The smartphone also performed well on the gaming side. The device is equipped with a cooling system LiquidCool Technology 2.0 which allows not to overheat too much and to maintain an average temperature even if under stress.

As for the software we find on board theto MIUI 12.5 (April patch) along with Android 11, even if Xiaomi promised the update to MIUI 13 soon. We know the user interface of Xiaomi very well and it is practically the same seen in the younger brothers.

The MIUI 12.5 allows a myriad of customizations and always results fluid and easy to use. There is no shortage of special features such as: Game Turbo, Video Tools, Center Camera Assistant, Pop-up Windows, Second Space and Lite Mode. As we have previously seen for the extensive customization of the always on display, the same thing goes for the home screen and for the themes and wallpapers.

Cameras

If there is a sector where Redmi Note 11 Pro + 5G is in line with other mid-range smartphones, it is the photographic one. Overall we are talking about one good quality camera. The sub-fund consists of 3 bedroom configured as follows:

  • Main from 108MP f / 1.8
  • Ultra wide angle from 8MP f / 2.2
  • Macro from 2MP f / 2.4

With the 108MP main cam i overall results of the shots are good. The quality of detail, the management of lights and colors has been largely exceeded, especially when we talk about day shots. The results are better than other Redmi Note 11 Pro smartphoneswhich had instead fallen short of expectations. At night the main cam performs well, thanks also to the Night mode which significantly helps the sensor. There lack of a zoom lens is felt, but on the other hand it was difficult to ask for more from this Redmi. However, the digital zoom reaches up to 10X with satisfying shots.

The ultra wide angle cam delivers average shots, without infamy and without praise. With a lot of light the images are good and enjoyable, while with low lights the noise increases and the image quality decreases. Overall it’s an ultra wide angle sensor that it makes sense in this smartphoneas opposed to the latest 2MP macro sensor. The selfie cam mounts a Sony IMX 471 sensor from 16MP f / 2.4. The shots are excellent seen on the screen of the device, the same thing goes for the publication on social networks. Selfies with portrait mode are also good.

The camera software is the Xiaomi classiceasy, intuitive with the ability to improve the camera experience, especially for users who are already familiar with MIUI.

Videos are recorded at the maximum resolution in 4K at 30 fps. The general quality of the shots is excellent, as is the color balance, the detail and the sharpness of the images. Even the focus did not give any kind of problem. Video side a notch above other mid-rangers on the market. Do not miss the slow-motion, the short video mode and the VLOG mode.

Drums

Redmi Note 11 Pro + 5G mounts a 4,500 mAh. We are not talking about a very high capacity, but certainly this condition is healed by the fast recharge that reaches i 120W. So far, no mid-range smartphone on the market has such fast charging. Redmi Note 11 Pro + employs only 15 minutes to go from 0 to 100%. Despite this plus, the autonomy of the smartphone is goodsafely reaching the full day of use.
