Xiaomi’s habits won’t escape you. The Chinese brand, number 3 in the world, is increasing its references to better occupy the market, regardless of the price of consumer interest. Among these smartphones, we see Redmi, a stamp designed as a brand in its own right, whose new batch includes multiple models. The Redmi Note 11 (from € 199.90), Redmi Note 11s (€ 279.90) and Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G (€ 369.90) have thus passed through our labs. Since they are sold at very close prices and offer technical sheets which are hard to find in a way, we suggest that you check the qualities and defects of each, to help you make the most options.
If you’ve been following the news, you’ve noticed that Xiaomi has announced two more terminals to complete this trio: the Redmi Note 11s 5G and Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G.

Ergonomics: Needs 5G, the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G wins the point
The Redmi Note 11 more or less shares a typical ergonomics. This should be the case with the Note 11 and Note 11s, which are based on the same case weighing 179 grams, each featuring a screen occupying 84.5% of its facade. Also to their credit, the combination of a 3.5 mm jack, a microSD card slot, a fingerprint reader located on their edge and an IP53 certification. Attention, this means that the dust will not scare them and that they will be able to withstand splashes, but not that they will be submerged. The Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G, which also has these features, also offers 5G support, making it a model of choice for those looking for a device that is most mobile network. However, it is bigger and heavier, with 202 grams in weight.

Screen: the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G on the front, thanks to 120 Hz
|Redmi Note 11||Redmi Note 11s||Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G|
|Maximum brightness||725 cd/m²||768 cd/m²||820 cd/m²|
|Minimum light||1.9 cd/m²||2.2 cd/m²||2.5 cd/m²|
As you can understand, the Redmi Note 11 and Note 11s share almost all of their elements, and this is for their 6.43-inch displays. Like the Pro model, they offer an Amoled panel, but deviate from it with their 90 Hz refresh rate (non-adaptive), when the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G goes up to 120 Hz (and benefits from a 6.67 inch ). Aside from this detail, these three smartphones provide a satisfying display, the 11 and 11s handling in excess of 700 cd / m², and the 11 Pro 5G reaching 820 cd / m². We also observed a satisfactory colorimetry, with the possibility, with a slight adjustment of the parameters of the three devices, to obtain a color temperature of around 6700 K and a deltaE between 1.3 and 1.5, indicating very low color drifts. In short, unless you completely stick to the 120 Hz refresh rate, there’s no need to go back to the most expensive of this Redmi.

Performance: Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G wins
If there’s one notable difference between the three Redmi Note 11s, it’s the chipset that drives them. The Redmi Note 11 relies on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680, the Redmi Note 11s on a MediaTek Helio G96 and the Redmi Note 11 Pro on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 (with 5G modem). Clearly they all provide a fairly consistent multitasking department experience and are comfortable to use every day. They stand out in terms of gaming, the 11 model is very good, capable of displaying an average of 46 fps, more than the 33 fps of the Note 11s. The Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G performs a little better (57 fps on average), actually, but at a higher price: so it’s a question of priorities.

The Redmi Note 11, all references combined, are not well -known photographers. They do very well, but don’t have to resort to the most expensive in the range to benefit from the most extreme consequences. With its 50-megapixel main sensor (f / 1.8 wide-angle optics), the Redmi Note 11 also makes the most usable shots, especially when the light is on, it should be acceptable. Despite its 108-megapixel main sensor, the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G is no better.

Autonomy: advantages of Redmi Note 11
All Redmi Note 11 series smartphones are equipped with 5000 mAh batteries, but the fastest charge (67 W) remains reserved for the Pro model, the 11 and 11S are “content” with a 33 W charger. autonomy, clearly the Redmi Note 11 is the most convincing, able to withstand 21 h 44 min using our Aim protocol. The Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G is unbeatable, with 19 h 50 min, and even the Redmi Note 11s (17 h 10 min) is one of the good students so far.
