Yesterday Xiaomi presented the new mid-range for late 2021 and early 2023. The most interesting terminal is the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro, a device with some interesting novelties in the design and not as much as it may seem in the hardware.
Today we tell you 3 reasons why you shouldn’t buy the Redmi Note 11 Pro and 3 reasons why you should buy it. Of course, we compare the device with the Redmi Note 10 Pro, a terminal launched just a few months ago and still has a lot to say.
Do not Buy the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro for these reasons
There are several reasons why Redmi Note 11 Pro is not attractive enough to buy. Always, of course, comparing it with the Redmi Note 10 Pro, the counterpart terminal that has been available for several months in all markets.
A very similar screen with “a few” new features
The screen of the Redmi Note 11 Pro is very good, it cannot be refused. The “problem” with this screen is that it is very similar to the one the Redmi Note 10 Pro already has. The news that Xiaomi has included is quickly counted and there are not too many.
The new device’s screen has the same size, design, technology, resolution, and refresh rate. Xiaomi may have included a slightly taller panel, but the one on the Redmi Note 10 Pro is good enough not to consider the change for this section.
A fairly similar camera section
Xiaomi kept the camera’s main sensor on the Redmi Note 11 Pro. The 108 MP is shared between the two devices, and the sensor’s characteristics are identical. We don’t know if it’s the same sensor or if it’s a bit higher, but on paper, they should work pretty much the same.
The secondary sensors switch and shrink on the new terminal, although that’s not necessarily a problem. An 8 MP wide angle and a 5 MP macro are kept, but the depth sensor of the Redmi Note 10 Pro is lost.
These are similar cameras with some quality jumps that are probably not clearly reflected. It will be more interesting for you to install the GCam in a Redmi Note 10 Pro than to buy the Redmi Note 11 Pro.
Almost identical batteries and much faster fast charging
The drums This is another of the points where it is not worth opting for the new device. Its processor is more powerful and consumes more power, which also happens with the screen due to the high refresh rate of the touchscreen. It can be summed up in as Less autonomy for the Redmi Note 11 Pro.
We are not big fans of fast charging because we know it is harmful to use daily when it is extremely powerful. The Redmi Note 11 Pro includes a charger capable of charging it at 67W, which is more than double the 33W of the Redmi Note 10 Pro.
Is loading faster? Yes, will the battery degrade further after several months of use? Yes, now it’s up to you to decide whether to have a 33W load for specific occasions or a 67W load that you probably only need a few times a month.
Redmi Note 11 Pro: 3 reasons why you should buy it
All is not bad in this device or little novel. The Redmi Note 11 Pro has several interesting details that justify the purchase. Of course, you have to keep in mind that the device is not yet available in the west and will arrive at a price that is probably higher than that of the Redmi Note 10 Pro.
The best touch refresh rate for gaming
The Redmi Note 11 Pro has included a very cool feature for users who play on mobile. Now the touch refresh rate is not 240Hz, it is 360 Hz. This higher number increases the touch sampling rate of the screen and, as a result, the touch response improves.
It’s not outrageous, but it’s something most players should consider to get the most out of it. Many high-end mobiles don’t have such a high touch refresh rate.
MediaTek processor is more powerful than Qualcomm
Xiaomi didn’t use MediaTek just because of this device. The company wanted to reduce costs and increase power. The result is that the MediaTek Dimensity 920 is more powerful than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G. The analysis of nanoreview.com clearly shows that in almost all respects the new chip wins.
This means that you will perform better with the new device, although you should know that the Redmi Note 10 Pro is not bad. With both, you can run most games on Google Play without a hitch. Of course, you will do better with the new terminal.
New, more striking, and differentiated design
Likely, the main reason why users buy this Redmi Note 11 Pro will be its new design. Xiaomi has done a great job with the flat bezels and made a midrange mobile that’s very different from most.
Xiaomi made the difference with the Redmi Note 11 Pro and created the need for renewal for many users. The reality is that this is still a very similar device and beyond the new design it is difficult to recommend its purchase over the Redmi Note 10 Pro.
