Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G impresses in DxOMark tests and ties with the Google Pixel 4a at the top of its price segment
DxOMark has been getting to grips with the camera equipment of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G smartphone and has been seemingly impressed by the overall performance of the mid-range device. The Mi 11 Lite 5G was awarded a total mark of 111, which leaves it in a middling position in the complete chart (headed by the ultra-premium Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra), but it is a good enough score to permit the new Xiaomi smartphone to rest at the top of the “Advanced” price segment alongside the Google Pixel 4a.
The rear-facing camera system of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G consists of a primary 64 MP main sensor (f/1.79 aperture), 8 MP ultra-wide angle lens (119° field of view), and a 5 MP macro sensor, with a 20 MP lens situated at the front (the 4G variant has a 16 MP lens here). An LED flash is available to light up scenes and the video utility is capable of shooting 4K at 30 FPS. The testing by DxOMark discovered that the Mi 11 Lite 5G wasn’t particularly good when it came to producing night-time shots (underexposed) or keeping details when zooming in on a subject.
However, the Mi 11 Lite 5G was able to compete well in the tests for its video performance, with its good color rendition and effective image stabilization. In still shots, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G earned its high score by once again offering pleasing color reproduction, and it managed to control noise in images although its autofocus could have been better. However, for a Snapdragon 780G-based phone that costs around US$399 (£399 official price in the UK; €399.99 in Europe), buyers should be satisfied with its overall good camera performance that can rank alongside the highly praised Pixel 4a's cameras.
