The Xiaomi 11T Pro is a cheaper spin-off of the company’s Mi 11 flagship there. Like this phone, it has a 120Hz display and a 108MP main camera, but the former has a slightly lower resolution and the latter uses a smaller sensor, so there is a clear compromise compared to the original camera. There is a big upgrade called 120W fast charge. This is enough to fully charge in just 20 minutes.
Xiaomi 11T Pro is not a semi-annual increase in specs for Xiaomi Mi 11. It’s a very powerful upper-midrange smartphone that competes directly with the OnePlus 9 in terms of price and features. That said, much of my admiration and criticism of the Xiaomi 11T Pro’s ring is eerily well-known. It offers excellent hardware and top-notch performance at a very competitive price but is somewhat hampered by nasty software and hardware quirks.
The general look of the phone matches the Xiaomi Mi 11i better than the stylish Xiaomi Mi 11 and Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite. Please note that the Xiaomi Mi 11i is a very generic-looking phone and is not a compliment comparison, as there are at least two similarities in the broader Xiaomi family.
Despite its understated appearance, the Xiaomi 11T Pro is a very sturdy and easy-to-use phone. The fingerprint sensor mounted on the side is very fast and responsive, but it makes a humming noise every time you touch it, so there is no doubt that it is too underexposed. At the top and bottom of the is a pair of impressive volume and clear Hardon Kardon tuned stereo speakers. However, there is no headphone jack.
Not surprisingly, we’re talking about the slight gains and losses compared to other Snapdragon 888 phones. The important thing is how the Xiaomi 11T Pro feels in your hand, which is very smooth.
