The Xiaomi Mi 11 uses the Qualcomm SM8350 Snapdragon 888 CPU with 2.84GHz+2.42GHz+1.8GHz×8(OctaCore). The memory capacity is 12GB. With a CPU of quite high performance, it has processing capability way above normal smart phones. It is hard to find cases where its performance is lacking from the perspective of CPU performance, and you can even say it is excessive. In addition, it has way more memory compared to normal smart phones. From the perspective of memory, I don't think you will ever feel there is not enough memory. Conversely, it is way too capable for uses such as searching the Internet and messaging.

Review of the product design of the Xiaomi Mi 11

Assessment of user-friendliness and ease of handling

It is important to consider the ease of using the phone in one hand. It can be said that it would be very useful if it is easier for you to send emails and instant messages or answer calls using one hand while cooking or using your computer. Here, we have reviewed the Xiaomi Mi 11 by focusing on the ease of using it in one hand and the ease of typing in letters.

The weight you feel when using the phone with one hand

The Xiaomi Mi 11 feels too heavy to operate with one hand, so the device wouldn't be a good choice even if you are just going to use it for a short period of time. We suggest that you hold it tightly with both hands as it may hurt your hands if you use it with just one hand for an extended period of time.

The size of the buttons on the App

The buttons on the Xiaomi Mi 11 are displayed quite large. Because of this, it is difficult to press something by mistake and it feels very easy to use. Even with games that use small buttons, it's difficult to press something by mistake making it very easy to play.

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

For people who use their smartphone on a daily basis, high performance is a rather important factor. When the performance is not good enough, then, for example, applications don't work as they should or the screen is difficult to see, and this causes stress. This review looks at whether the performance of the Xiaomi Mi 11 is suitable for making phone calls, messaging, or using SNS.

The size of the letters and the ease of operation

Because the display of the Xiaomi Mi 11 is much larger than ordinary phones, characters are displayed quite large. Therefore, it is suitable for reading long bodies of text and exchanging long messages while doing research.

Ease of reading sentences

Since the Xiaomi Mi 11 displays characters smoothly, it can display them beautifully. Even when viewing small characters, the jaggedness of the character outline is not at a level seen during normal viewing and is displayed very naturally. Because of this, it is difficult for your eyes to become tired and make the phone suitable for reading long bodies of text.

The beauty of the overal screen

The screen of the Xiaomi Mi 11 can display pictures and videos quite vividly. This makes it great for enjoying videos and games dynamically. It has a very beautiful screen.

Ease of writing sentences

The Xiaomi Mi 11 has enough screen space even when typing and the screen is hidden by the on screen keyboard. Because the sentences being typed can be seen clearly, the phone's screen size makes it suitable for typing and editing large bodies of text such as office documents.

Does it have sufficient performance to make calls and send emails?

Whether it be a phone call, mail, or during a chat, the Xiaomi Mi 11 provides smooth performance. Even when using the phone in demanding situations, you can use the phone comfortably since there will usually be no lag.

Does it have sufficient performance to search for things and using Social Networks?

If it is just SNS such as Facebook and Instagram, and some internet searches, the performance is enough. As a result, you will hardly ever find yourself frustrated or annoyed when using this phone.

Does it have sufficient performance to do other tasks while searching for things and using Social Networks?

Even if you start multiple apps at the same time or switch between apps frequently, you will have smooth performance. It can be said that the performance is more than enough if you just do research and SNS.
