Like many flagship devices, the Xiaomi Mi 11 comes with an optional 120Hz refresh rate that allows the display to refresh up to 120 times per second for maximum brightness. Users can turn the refresh rate down to 60Hz to prolong battery life.

In terms of responsiveness, the Xiaomi Mi 11 has a 480Hz touch input rate. This allows the display to scan for fingerprints 480 times per second and improves the overall responsiveness of the handset.


Two storage options are available with the Xiaomi Mi 11: 128GB and 256GB. However, many UK stockists seem to focus on the 128GB version, so customers may have to settle for that storage option after looking at Xiaomi Mi 11 comparison deals.

There is no microSD card slot on the Xiaomi Mi 11, meaning customers will either need to be content with the device storage capacity or supplement it using cloud software. Bear this in mind when calculating overall monthly handset costs.


The design of the Xiaomi Mi 11 is in keeping with many flagship handsets. It comes with Gorilla Glass Victus on the front and rear and has an aluminium frame for rigidity.

On the rear of the device, each camera lens protrudes at a different level while still being a compact camera unit.

Two colours are available in the UK: Midnight Grey and Horizon Blue.


Is the Xiaomi Mi 11 worth the price?

The Xiaomi Mi 11 is not the most expensive device in the Mi 11 series and offers a flagship experience without some of the more premium features seen in more expensive devices.

It includes a 120Hz refresh rate, high responsiveness rate and a 108MP main lens, although it does lack features such as a telephoto lens for ardent photographers.

Does the Xiaomi Mi 11 have a good battery?

There have been some complaints about the battery on the Xiaomi Mi 11 not lasting close to a full day due to the demands of the hardware. The impact of this can be reduced by switching off features such as the 120Hz refresh rate, but customers looking for a long-life battery should compare Xiaomi Mi 11 mobile phone deals alongside other devices to find the best options.

Is the Xiaomi Mi 11 waterproof?

No, the Xiaomi Mi 11 is not waterproof and does not have an IP rating. This means it cannot be near water and may not be resistance to any spills or splashes. In addition, it may not be resistant to dust either.

If water resistance is important, compare Xiaomi Mi 11 deals to more expensive flagships and premium devices.

Does the Xiaomi Mi 11 have a good camera?

The camera on the Xiaomi Mi 11 includes a 108MP main lens which has been a core feature of Xiaomi cameras for several generations. However, software optimisation has improved the final products so photographs on this device will look better than on its predecessor.

Including a 5MP macro lens with the Xiaomi Mi 11 also allows users to get closer to their subjects and still produce quality shots.
