Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 4G: The review results in overview

With a thickness of 6.81 millimeters, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 4G is one of the thinnest smartphones on the market.
With a thickness of 6.81 millimeters, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 4G is one of the thinnest smartphones on the market.
The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 4G is the cheapest model in the Mi 11 series, which also includes flagship heavyweights like the Mi 11 Ultra. The 6.55-inch Mi 11 Lite 4G starts at 300 Euros (~$356), and like its Mi 11 Lite 5G counterpart, it scores points with good performance and features but at an even lower price.

With its 2400x1080 pixel AMOLED panel that manages a refresh rate of up to 90 Hz and supports HDR10, its 64 MP triple-camera setup, and the Snapdragon 732G octa-core SoC as the control center, the Mi 11 Lite 4G is well-equipped for a mid-range smartphone.

Lightweight with 157 grams

However, its weight and dimensions are almost unique selling points. At only 157 grams, the Mi 11 Lite 4G is very light for a 6.55-inch smartphone, almost approaching the weight of an Apple iPhone 12 Mini, which is even lighter at 133 grams, but it's also considerably more compact at 5.4 inches. In comparison with its 5G counterpart, the Mi 11 Lite 4G wins once again: At 159 grams, the Mi 11 Lite 5G is a tiny bit heavier.

The Mi 11 Lite 4G starts at 300 Euros (~$356) in Xiaomi's web store. This gives you the base version with 6 GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 64 GB of UFS 2.2 storage. The smartphone costs 350 Euros (~$416) with 128 GB of storage. Our test device is the third storage variant with 8/128 GB, but it will likely not be officially available on the European market until further notice, which is why no official price is listed for it in this region. However, it should be available in online stores sooner or later. In the United States, for example, you can currently find it on Amazon for $368.

Solid performance, bright AMOLED panel

In the test, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 4G scores points with its solid performance, even though its Snapdragon 732G is quite a bit slower than the Snapdragon 780G used in the 5G version. In return, the Mi 11 Lite 4G scores better when it comes to the camera thanks to its visibly better low-light performance, which is probably due to a different camera sensor, but Xiaomi hasn't provided any information about this.

The Mi 11 Lite 4G shares its strong AMOLED display with the 5G model, which can exceed the manufacturer's specification of 800 nits in the test. With an average of 808.9 cd/m² and up to 842 cd/m² in the APL50 measurement, the 90 Hz panel offers a lot of brightness, enabling a largely unobstructed view of the screen content even outdoors.

My fascination for computers started with the C64. Since then, I’ve put everything that comes my way in terms of hardware through its paces. From the C64 to the Amiga 500 and the first PC with an 8088 CPU, my list of projects has grown increasingly longer. For more than 20 years now I have also turned my hobby into my profession and have been active in the mobile section of Notebookcheck since 2021. Before that, I worked as a hardware editor for IDG Media ( and VNU Business Publications (PC professional), among others.

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.
