Redmi Note 11 review: Xiaomi smartphone with a 90 Hz OLED display and 1,000 nits at an absolute bargain price

Display reference for devices under 200 Euros (~$214). For a price of less than 200 Euros (~$214), the Redmi Note 11 features a very interesting technical configuration. First of all, the very bright AMOLED panel including its 90 Hz refresh rate and excellent calibration is a unique selling point. Read on to find out where users will have to compromise with the Xiaomi phone.
Redmi Note 11 smartphone review

Although the Redmi Note 11 belongs to the low-priced mid-range, Xiaomi really excels when it comes to the display. The most affordable model of the Redmi Note 11 series, which was introduced in February, has a 6.43-inch AMOLED display with a 90 Hz refresh rate and a maximum brightness of up to 1,000 nits. 

It's powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680, which is accompanied by LPDDR4X RAM and UFS 2.2 storage. You can choose from the following model variants:

Redmi Note 11 | 64 GB | 4 GB RAM | 200 Euro (~$214) (MSRP)

Redmi Note 11 | 128 GB | 4 GB RAM | 230 Euro (~$247) (MSRP)

Redmi Note 11 | 128 GB | 4 GB RAM | 260 Euro (~$279) (MSRP)

The built-in 5,000 mAh battery supports 33-watt fast charging, and an appropriate 33-watt charger is included in the box. To round off the Redmi Note 11's features, there's a side-mounted fingerprint sensor and an integrated 3.5 mm audio jack.

Redmi Note 11 smartphone review
Redmi Note 11 smartphone review

The 179-gram Redmi Note 11 is available in three color options. Although the build quality is very impressive for this price range, the Xiaomi phone doesn't feel premium. Both the back and the frame are made of plastic, which is noticeable. The high-gloss finish of our Star Blue review sample barely hides fingerprints. However, users who choose the black version will get a satined plastic surface.

The IP53-certified Redmi phone features a flat OLED display at the front, which comes with a wide "chin". However, the competition in the affordable mid-range doesn't offer a much better ratio between the display and the front of the device, either. About 84.5% of the Redmi Note 11's front is dedicated to the AMOLED panel.

Connectivity - Redmi Note 11 with 3.5 mm audio jack

Given the price level of under 200 Euros (~$214), there are no real points of criticism for the Redmi Note 11 in terms of connectivity. The device comes with Miracast, UFS storage, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and an IR blaster. Moreover, the internal storage can be expanded by up to 1 TB via microSD cards. In addition, external peripherals and storage devices can be connected via the USB port, but it only supports the 2.0 standard.

microSD card reader

The Redmi Note 11 has a triple card slot, which means that two nano SIM cards and one microSD card can be used in parallel. With our Angelbird V60 reference card, the speed is at a decent level. The SD card reader gets good transfer rates out of our storage medium in the Cross Platform Disk test, and the copy speed of about 25 MB/s is satisfactory as well.

Software - Xiaomi phone with Android 11

Xiaomi combines the Android system with its in-house MIUI user interface on version 13. According to reports, the Redmi Note 11 will still be provided with security updates at 90-day intervals until 2025. Besides the upcoming upgrade to Android 12, it should also get an update to Android 13. We were unable to find official information from the manufacturer. At the time of our review, the Xiaomi phone is not up to date due to it running Android 11 and security patches from January 2022.

In MIUI 13, the Redmi Note 11 makes use of a redesigned MiSans font, a variety of new widgets, as well as support for Google's "Material You" design. What's somewhat unnecessary are the ad banners or ads displayed within the MIUI 13 interface, such as when an app is installed. However, these so-called MSA (MIUI System Ads) can generally be disabled quite easily. The existing bloatware, such as games or Netflix, can also be uninstalled.

Communication and GNSS - Xiaomi smartphone with NFC

When it comes to communication modules, Xiaomi uses an NFC chip for contactless payments via Google Pay as well as Bluetooth 5.0. Furthermore, the Qualcomm chipset in the Redmi Note 11 allows accessing the mobile Internet over 4G. The X11 modem doesn't support the 5G standard.

The Xiaomi phone covers a total of 12 LTE bands and all the relevant LTE frequencies for the German-speaking region, including the LTE Band 20 and the Band 28. However, the budget Redmi model isn't recommended for a trip abroad, e.g. to the USA, since it doesn't have bands 13 and 25.

The Note 11 offers solid transfer rates over Wi-Fi 5 networks. In combination with our Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 reference router, the Xiaomi phone is on par with the low-priced mid-range competition. Nevertheless, stability is quite low in our measurements.

In order to assess the device's tracking capabilities in practice, we log a route with the Garmin Venu 2 for comparison purposes. The Redmi Note 11 determines its position via GPS (L1), GLONASS, BeiDou, and Galileo (E1). The satellite fix outdoors is fast and has an accuracy of about 4 meters. Even indoors, the Xiaomi phone determines its position quickly and accurately.

The deviations in the path are small, meaning that the routes are often identical for the mid-range phone and the smartwatch. The detailed GPS log reveals minor inaccuracies in the Redmi phone, though, especially when changing directions.

Telephone and call quality - Redmi Note 11 with dual-SIM feature

The dual-SIM phone supports two nano SIM cards as well as VoLTE. Call quality is at a good level, and even in speaker mode, the budget mid-range phone allows the participants in a video call to communicate intelligibly.

Cameras - Xiaomi smartphone with 50 MP

Selfie taken with the Redmi Note 11
Selfie taken with the Redmi Note 11

The 13 MP camera, which is located in the punch hole at the front, takes solid selfies in Photo mode. The Samsung S5K3L6 sensor reproduces subjects slightly softly and quite dully, and exposure could be better tuned as well.

The Redmi Note 11's rear-facing quad-camera system consists of a 50 MP main sensor from Samsung (S5KJN1), an 8 MP ultra wide-angle lens, as well as two 2 MP sensors for macro and depth photos. The Samsung ISOCELL JN1 has a sensor size of 1/2.76 inches, and it has an aperture of f/1.8 in the Redmi Note 11. By default, photos are taken in pixel-binning mode, so the images are 12.5 MP instead of 50 MP. 

The results are more than decent for this price range - we really like the pictures taken with the affordable mid-range phone in very good light conditions in particular. The colors are also compelling with a vivid but not over-saturated representation. We can't determine any major deviations (DeltaE deviations >10) in our measurement with the ColorChecker Passport. However, image sharpness suffers with very distant subjects, and the dynamic range is rather low as well. Clear compromises have to be made in low light, although subjects are rendered much sharper than with other smartphones in this price range that are equipped with the Samsung ISOCELL JN1.

With a field of view of 118 degrees, a lot of image content can be captured with the ultra wide-angle lens that includes the GalaxyCore GC08A3 sensor. However, we see a lot of room for improvement in terms of quality here. The photos have many image errors, and the sharpness level is low. Nonetheless, the quality of the ultra wide-angle lens is still slightly above average for this price range.

Videos can only be recorded at up to 30 fps in Full HD quality with the Note 11 - this is a limitation of the Snapdragon 680, which doesn't support a UHD option. However, the device's poor stabilization doesn't exactly make the Xiaomi phone suitable for recording videos, either. Switching between the wide-angle and ultra wide-angle lens when filming isn't possible with the Redmi phone.

The Redmi Note 11's 33-watt charger

The low-priced mid-range phone comes with a modular 33-watt charger, a data and charging cable, a case, a SIM pin, and a Quick Start guide with warranty conditions. In addition, a screen protector comes installed by default.

The manufacturer grants a 12-month warranty on its phone.

Input devices and handling - Xiaomi smartphone with 180 Hz

The capacitive touchscreen detects inputs quickly and with precision, and the Gorilla Glass 3's gliding properties are equally compelling. At the same time, the built-in AMOLED panel is responsive with a sampling rate of up to 180 Hz, while it offers a refresh rate of 90 Hz, which makes animations and scrolling look pleasingly smooth.

An active fingerprint scanner that is integrated into the power button provides biometric security. It operates quickly and delivers good recognition rates. Unlocking the device with facial recognition via the front-facing camera is just as fast, but this 2D method is less secure.

Display - Redmi Note 11 with AMOLED display

Subpixel grid
Subpixel grid

The Redmi Note 11's 6.43-inch Dot Display is based on AMOLED technology. You can set its refresh rate to either 60 or 90 Hz. Adaptive control, such as the one observed in flagships, is not available here.

The Chinese manufacturer doesn't officially advertise an HDR10 certification, but according to the "DRM Info" app, the OLED panel, which has a resolution of 2400x1080 pixels, supports HDR content. Considering the brightness of 1,010 cd/m² (APL18) that we measured, users should also benefit from this. Using a completely white background, the Xiaomi phone manages a peak brightness of 702 cd/m², which is just as outstanding in this price range. The very even brightness distribution of the Dot Display is also worth mentioning.

Due to its technology, the Redmi Note 11 uses pulse width modulation (PWM) at a low frequency of 90 to 171 Hz for brightness control. The OLED flickering in the Xiaomi smartphone starts at 55% of the maximum brightness and runs at a constant 90 Hz with a very low and even amplitude curve. We didn't find a DC dimming mode in the settings menu.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 171.4 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 171.4 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 171.4 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21805 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Series of measurements with a fixed zoom level and different brightness settings

When it comes to the display, the Redmi Note 11 doesn't lack any configuration options. Users can choose from three different profiles and customize the color temperature to their personal taste. However, individual display parameters, such as saturation or gamma, can't be tweaked.

In our tests with the CalMAN software and a spectrophotometer, the AMOLED panel proves to be very well calibrated, and it hardly shows any color deviations in the "Standard" profile. Due to the OLED technology, where individual pixels can be completely switched off, an "absolute" black is achieved, and contrast (theoretically) tends towards infinity.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.

Thanks to the high brightness, the Redmi Note 11 is also optimally equipped for everyday use outdoors. However, the automatic brightness feature should be activated here. Otherwise, the Xiaomi phone stops at 445 cd/m2. Screen content remains legible even in direct sunlight and under the accompanying reflections on the glass surface.

The AMOLED panel's viewing-angle stability is very good, and only at very flat viewing angles is a slight brightness loss noticeable.

The Redmi Note 11 runs smoothly most of the time in everyday use, but minor stuttering is always present. System performance is absolutely fine for this price range, and application load times are also pleasingly short. This is also due to the moderate read and write rates provided by the UFS storage. The write rates in particular are very good in the Redmi Note 11.

Games - Xiaomi smartphone achieves 60 fps

Although the built-in Adreno 610 is a bit outdated, the graphics performance, which we tested with our partner GameBench, should be sufficient for the occasional Android game.

PUBG Mobile can only be played at minimum details - the HD and UHD settings can't be selected - but the shooter is displayed at a relatively constant 25 fps. 30 fps can be achieved using the lowest detail settings.

Armajet, our second test game, is also limited to 30 fps, which is a bit surprising since the arena shooter theoretically supports 144 fps, and other smartphones with the Adreno 610, such as the realme 9i, manage 60 fps. The situation is better in League of Legends: Wild Rift, where a frame rate of 60 fps is possible with the Redmi Note 11. Except for a strong dip in Armajet, both games are rendered without major FPS fluctuations.

Temperature

Redmi Note 11 smartphone review

The Redmi Note 11 doesn't suffer from heat development. The case's surface temperatures are hardly worth mentioning in idle usage as well as under load. We measure a maximum of 33 °C (~91 °F) for the Xiaomi phone.

We also test the Snapdragon 680's stability with the GFX benchmark's stress test, which repeats the corresponding OpenGL ES 3.1 scenario 30 times in a row. Afterwards, the Note 11 has to prove its capabilities in the 3DMark stress tests.

The Qualcomm SoC's performance only throttles minimally in both test scenarios - but the Wild Life Extreme stress test couldn't be executed. Consequently, we can't determine a decrease in frame rates under high load.

Speakers

The Redmi Note 11 is equipped with a dual-speaker system that provides a sufficiently loud sound in addition to a stereo feeling - we measure a maximum volume of 89 dB. Furthermore, our measurements show a solid frequency response for the Redmi phone's mid and high tones. Bass isn't really present in the sound pattern. Nevertheless, there's still nothing to complain about for this price range.

The same is true for the audio experience via wireless or wired headphones. The Note 11 has a 3.5-millimeter audio jack that allows for a reproduction with more bass, and the noise level is within a good range with an SNR value of 80 dBFS. In addition to the jack, the device also features Bluetooth 5.0 with SBC, AAC, aptX HD, and aptX Adaptive, as well as with the LDAC and LHDC codecs.
