After 2 Weeks With Xiaomi Mi 11 - 120hz Refresh Rate Or Nothing! by NEROSKY(m): 11:00am On Apr 03
let me tell you a brief history of me with Tech - Started with Tecno N3 or there about, the very first android phone officially sold in Nigeria, then I'm into Symbian phones full time, used much of Sony Ericsson & some Nokia - Hated Blackberry from day one till they died a well deserved death - I own a phone blog, now mainly blog for the passion, not for the money, cos google just dey frustrate us, stop monetizing 3 years ago for this reason.

So if i had registered in nairaland when I know about the site, we should be the first set, people coming online to talk rubbish about phones don't even know much about tech, they're just rookie trying to be relevant. In essence, I don't taye for this matter, my opinion on things are not the best, but know it that experience on things can't be bought. or should we talk about nairalist?

Well, lets get down to business.

Display
Brethren, this is my first 120hz refresh rate and i will never ever go back again (this might come as grand breaking innovation on iphone line-up) when is added on iPhone 13 or 14 which will be celebrated. Not knowing it has been on android since 2017. Bro, this refresh rate makes your scrolling so smooth, you would want to eat your phone


Battery & 55 wats (GaN) charger
It will last you a full day on normal or average use, it can even go better if you downgrade to 60hz refresh rate, cos 120hz drain a bit more battery. The charging speed is so fast, You won't notice you even plugged your phone to charge - This makes me wonder how Apple are so selfish, and why iPhone user are so sheepy!! Because this company is so selfish, their charging speed is capped, i used every charger possible on this useless iPhone 11, and the charging speed still remain the same, 2 hours to fully charger in this modern age? God forbid!! "Apple creates problem, then sell the solution to its user" cos they know they'll definitely buy. why I'm saying this? I feel the only charger that can charge iPhone very fast is Apple fast charger "ONLY" i still stand to be corrected.

Design
Personally, the only phone that looks better than this phone in real life is Samsung S21 (the phone wasn't looking all that good to me till i saw it in person, i was like wow!!- and that's that. - T

Camera
The Camera is very good, i feel the only camera better is s21, mi 11 pro and ultra, maybe can be compared with 12 pro max, pixel 5, oneplus 9 or p40

UI and Feels.
Honestly, haven't seen anything more cool on ä phone like this "MIUI Super Wallpaper" When you get the chance to feel it, you'll understand where I'm coming from - The Haptic engine is now upgraded, is now as good as the one on iPhone.

Inconclusion, why is it Xiaomi for me? I bought Poco f1 from China in 2018, phone that has snapdragon 845 for $350+ whilst Samsung with that chipset is around $800 on flagship - That's massive value for money, then Private album, Second space, ir blaster, security etc, I love Samsung but now i love MI more. The company meant it when they said "Innovation for everyone"

The 420k plus doesn't reflect on the body. Put an A52 5G with a 120hz refresh rate or even an A80 Samsung beside it. And wonder which the public will pick most. A very unappealing design I must say. I must commend Samsung for their good screen.
In summary waste of money

Good for you bro.

This MI 11 is another step forward for Xiaomi though.

All round it's a nice phone, they should work more on their design to make their flagships standout more.

Secondly, the camera is obviously good but then again they're better cameras out there, Samsung s21+ and s21ultra and Google pixel 5. MI 11 ultra may shock me sha bcoz I've not seen the camera review yet.

But as usual, Xiaomi offering great value for money. I can't really complain getting this device. Just look at the price of getting the Samsung s21 series, iPhone 12 series.

I'm not doubting the capabilities. What I have problem with is the design. It's extremely ugly and honestly if I don't know the phone. If i see it outside I can't buy it for 80k

Stop replying that nonentity, on the left side of his brain, there's nothing right, and on the right side of it, there's nothing left. It's one thing to be a marketer, it's another to be daft alongside with it.

It's an android thing, as phone got smarter, people no longer do research or read extensively. Iphone that's built to last minimum of 5 years to Android of 3 years.
The worst is when the start wailing about 120Hz. When iPhone debuted ProMotion Display since 2016. With the small battery capacity on the iPhone couple with last gen processor battery inefficiency, who in their right mind would put 120Hz display on an iPhone?

You always have something weird to say. You're on every thread that's says "Xiaomi" spilling trash. All your threads, "Xiaomi did this, they did that" Them collect your papa land? If you're a lover of good tech and device like you claim, why can't you just appreciate this piece of device? "It's ugly, the design is bla bla bla." Not to agree with you, but Google pixel fine? It's still a Monster. I don't see anything wrong with the Mi 11's design. But as a troll, you always find something negative to say.

Trash that analysis if you ever believe that - Apple always have a reason to keep the sheeple together and make them believe every reason, more like suffering and smiling, apple lacks innovation, one thing I like about them is, whatever they do, they do it very very well, take M1 chip on laptop for example, its the best any laptop can use, still no fan included , see no charger for example, for environmental reason, thats the biggest scam a company had pulled so far (hope you watched Mrwhosboss review on that, how they cos more problem than the solution they're trying to provide - which is a deliberate attempt to cash out big) - I have iPhone for practical purpose and it has become useless to me ever since my mi 11 came. if I'm back from Europe I will sell it one hand, less i forgot, it drains battery as much as the battery drain on other device. So forget that nonsense justification. what now happen to apple own fast charger? is stupidity a choice or something we become unknowingly??

Even with their slow charging their batteries don't last. This shouldn't be new as you can see people always asking for battery health before they buy their used phones. When person don ever doubt Android battery even after three years.
They never start to dey ask for 11 and 12 battery health, I give it till next year.
