Xiaomi 11T Pro review verdict: Everything you need, but still not enough?

With the 11T Pro, Xiaomi succeeds in creating a good high-end smartphone including a super fast charging function.

The Xiaomi 11T Pro high-end smartphone impresses with its blazing fast 120-watt charging speed. Nevertheless, the Xiaomi phone isn't perfect in terms of price-performance. Especially when you compare it with the Xiaomi Mi 11, the price of the 11T Pro is put a bit into perspective...

After having already taken a look at the Xiaomi 11T sibling model equipped with the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 in October, we recently reviewed the Pro variant of the 11T series as well. The 11T Pro is very similar to its sibling, but it sports a flagship 2021 SoC, the Snapdragon 888, including an 8K video option. In addition, the 5,000 mAh battery of the Pro model can be charged very quickly at up to 120 watts. However, in contrast to what many other manufacturers are doing right now, Xiaomi is still including the appropriate accessories with the 11T Pro, so that the extremely fast charging times can be admired by all users out of the box.

With a recommended retail price of 699.90 Euros (~$787), the 256 GB version of the 11T Pro approaches the 700 Euro (~$787) mark this year. This means that the successor to the Mi 10T Pro is about 50 Euros (~$56) more expensive, but beyond the spec sheet, Xiaomi is pursuing a completely new strategy in comparison to last year's T smartphone generation. The Chinese manufacturer has promised long-term software updates for its premium phone for the first time.

Nevertheless, there are some compromises that have to be made with the 11T Pro, even in relation to the Xiaomi Mi 11, which has dropped considerably in price in the meantime. Although the Xiaomi 11T Pro is positioned in a higher price range, it lacks certain premium features, such as a waterproof case, wireless charging, a 1440p resolution, or an optically stabilized main camera. However, the extent to which Xiaomi's update promise will also apply to the Mi 11 series is unclear so far.

Do you care a lot about fast charging in an Android phone? And are you looking for a high-end smartphone? If so, we recommend checking out our comprehensive review of the Xiaomi 11T Pro to get a detailed impression of the device.

I have always been very passionately interested in mobile technologies, especially smartphones. Being a tech enthusiast means the half-life of my devices isn’t exactly long, and being the latest hardware is not enough to suffice as the manufacturer and operating system play a minor role – the most important aspect for me is that the device is state-of-the-art. After posting for Mobi Test I joined Notebookcheck in 2016, where I have been pursuing my enthusiasm for technology by reviewing the latest smartphone, tablet, and accessory trends.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
