Xiaomi 11T Pro  First Impressions


The Xiaomi 11T Pro is a multimedia beast, with a true 6.67-inch 10-bit display capable of outputting 1 billion colours, Dolby Vision support, and Harman Kardon speakers that support Dolby Atmos. The display and audio are clearly going to define much of the experience with this phone.

This smartphone charges incredibly quickly. Xiaomi boasts that it can go from zero to 100 percent in 17 minutes, and keep in mind that this is a 5,000mAh battery. It's quite clever, because it removes one of the major drawbacks of using a smartphone with a large battery.

It also sports the same 108-megapixel camera as the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max, and the other two cameras would be unfit for a premium flagship; there is no optical image stabilisation (OIS) to help with video filming.

Although the phone has a vapour chamber inside to keep the Snapdragon 888 cool, little was said about its gaming potential. But that's been the case with most SD888 flagships so far, as the chipset has a propensity of overheating when used for extended periods of time.

It only has an IP53 rating for dust and splash resistance. It's Hi-res certified and includes a USB-C to 3.5mm converter right out of the box, and it'll set you back Rs 39,999.

The Xiaomi 11T Pro has a lot going for it, especially when you consider the pricing. It's a flagship killer like none of the recent OnePlus phones have ever been, and the features on offer are far superior than the competition right now.
