The Xiaomi Mi 11 flies through JerryRigEverything durability testing

The Xiaomi Mi 11 is the OEM's latest, Snapdragon 888-powered device. It has made its way onto the JerryRigEverything YouTube channel for its traditional bend-test. It ran this gauntlet with little bother, and with unusually high levels of praise for its low starting price and high-res main camera.

Some of the Mi 11's predecessors have not done so well in the hands of JerryRigEverything host Zach Nelson. However, the new 2021 flagship had the chance to turn things around during its turn on this popular teardown-vlogging channel.

And so it did: the new Snapdragon 888 vehicle started off by proving the quality of its Corning Gorilla Glass Victus by holding off damage until the "scratches at a level 6 with deeper grooves at a level 7" stage of the Mohs hardness picks stage of testing.

Then again, scratching the area over the Mi 11's in-display fingerprint sensor resulted in a little less functionality compared to a mint unit, whereas other phones have gotten off far lighter.

Similarly, its QHD+ OLED display acquired permanent defects in response to the traditional lighter-based portion of JerryRigEverything's testing, whereas other screens recovered completely.

Otherwise, Nelson found that the new Xiaomi flagship does indeed have a metal frame, although its pretty paint is susceptible to a razor blade: a hazard to keep in mind in case its Harmon Kardon-branded speakers ever get anywhere near one.

Nevetheless, the frame clearly kicked in for structural support when it came to the bend test in the case of the Mi 11. The phone did make some slightly ominous popping noises (possibly coming fromm internal clips that keep it attached to the display), but was appreciably resistant to breaking or warping.

Nelson also acknowledged its quality in relation to its low cost; then again, this starting price (cited at around US$600) might apply to the Chinese market only, and has since morphed into €749 (~$909, or even €799 (~$970) in certain markets) on its international launch.

All in all, the vlogger proclaimed it "a Pro in disguise". That acclaim might be subject to change should the real (albeit rumored) Mi 11 Pro show up soon.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
