|Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra: Xiaomi Is Trying To Kill Samsung by abatically(m): 11:05pm On Apr 12|
Its no longer news that Huawei were gunning for the top of the smartphone food chain before the US placed a ban on then. Ever since they have left a hole which Xiaomi is trying to exploit. I'm not a Xiaomi fan, I just appreciate good phones and I think with the Mi 11 Ultra, Xiaomi has thrown everything they have. This isn't just trying to be a good phone, its trying to be the best phone money can buy. Its is prices similarly as the Samsung galaxy S11 ultra with similar specs, but its got even more. Although arguably the S11 ultra looks a bit better physically (which is subjective) but that's where it ends. The design reminds me of Samsung early days when they were trying too hard to impress and end up going too far with the design. The S21 ultra looks more matured, not many people would like the design of the Mi 11 Ultra. Plus its a finger print magnet, the S21 ultra on the other hand has a very beautiful matte finish that doesn't attract fingerprint. But the phone is bold and in ur face kind of. The huge camera module isn't just huge for nothing as it has a second screen embedded there.
1. Display: Samsung phones have been known to have the best displays on the market. Xiaomi might have just broken that with the Mi 11 ultra ironically using a Samsung made panel. Both phones have 6.8 inch amoled quadHD+ 120 HZ, Gorilla glass victus adaptive panels display. Wow that's much. But Xiaomi goes even further maxing out at 1,700 nits vs 1,500 nits of the S21 ultra making it the brightest phone display on the market. Its got a 480hz sample rate vs the 240 on the Samsung. It also displays 10 bits color vs Samsung's 8 bits. Plus the Xiaomi has 2 Amoled displays, there's another one at the back of the phone in the Camera module. This might look like a gimmick but it is something that could be a potential game changer.
2. Battery: Both phones come with 5,000 mah battery, but Xiaomi goes further. It comes with a 67w charger and its even included in the box. Samsung on the other hand charges at 25w and charger is not even included in the box. Samsung is trying to copy Apple and thank God Xiaomi includes a charger that is even way better than Samsung's. S21 Ultra charges from 0-10 in 70 mins, the Xiaomi takes 40 mins. Also while it takes 120 mins for the Samsung to wirelessly charge from 0-100, it takes 40 mins for Xiaomi,that's 3 times faster. Mhen XIAOMI IS EATING SAMSUNG FOR BREAKFAST.
3. Speakers, memory and speed: Both phones have stereo speakers, but Xiaomi is louder. Plus while Samsung's base memory configuration is 12/128gb, Xioami's base model is 8/256gb. Plus based on tests done by Mrwhostheboss, The Xiaomi is faster in every benchmark tests. Although u can't really see the difference in normal usage.
4. Camera: This is the area where Samsung normally win, well this year its no longer an easy win as it used to be. Mi 21 ultra has 3 cameras and the main camera's sensor is 20% larger than the Samsung's already very large sensor. This help's in taken better shots in very dark environment and also better cinematic video. While the S21 ultra's camera is still regarded as one of the best cameras on a phone, the Mi 21 ultra's camera trades blow with it. The slow motion videos is not only better but also twice as slow and all 3 lenses shoot 8k videos. The Ultrawide camera is also better. Samsung has better macro shots, but the Mi 21 ultra is currently the zoom champion with 120x scumbag zoom (even though anything above 30x zoom is somehow unsueful). But the wildcard here is Xiaomi allows the use of the 3 main cameras for selfies with the help of the second screen.
In fact it looks like the reason the Mi 11 ultra exists is to beat the Galaxy s21 ultra. To continue what Huawei tried to do before the US ban. If Samsung doesn't buckle up Xiaomi might just over take them in the not too distant future. I still don't like MIUI though, I think Oneui is still more polished and matured while MIUI still looks childish targeted at younger people.

miui didn't look childish is just depend on your own preference, for me i prefer miui over one UI , u can't force an iPhone users dat is adapt to iOS to lik one UI on Samsung it choice, miui look matured Nd it features more fun, it might not up to one UI in optimization but miui is still the best on it lane
|Re: Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra: Xiaomi Is Trying To Kill Samsung by bmdmix3: 11:28am On Apr 13|

Most of this spec is made by samsung and samsung won't release something for other brands and they won't be able to do better , it might be the best phone right now but the next samsung flagship phone will beat this MI , that's marketing strategy
|Re: Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra: Xiaomi Is Trying To Kill Samsung by dboyoji: 12:14pm On Apr 13|
The thing is Xiaomi is building its brand here. Samsung might actually be making more profit than Xiaomi from each unit of this phone sold.

SILENTandSMART2:Samsung for example reserves the best amoled panel for it's devices

MIUI is far better than One UI. I know what I'm saying.
You can't use MIUI and go back to another Android OS

MKBHD mentioned something about the camera app battery drain as being excessive. You should probably keep that in mind if you plan to shoot videos and pictures significantly.

Of course there is nothing this phone can do that samsung cannot do. But samsung is being conservative so they can have new things to show with upcoming phones. Or do u think apple can't make a phone with higher refresh rate? See how long it took them to add wireless charging and 5g, u think they couldn't add them early enough?
|Re: Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra: Xiaomi Is Trying To Kill Samsung by abatically(m): 3:02pm On Apr 13|
I guess it's a thing of personal presebse. I've used both and I prefer oneui, more matured and stable for me.
|Re: Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra: Xiaomi Is Trying To Kill Samsung by abatically(m): 3:44pm On Apr 13|
Xiaomi make very good phones, the redmi note 10 series however have some design flaw and they break really easily. I think they got it wrong with the glass back and plastic frame on amoled thingy. Redmi note 9 and other xiaomi phones have better build.
But this is not enough to not trust xiaomi. Iphone 6 had the bendgate issues and they survived it. Samsung has the infamous explosions on the note 7, they survived. I think xiaomi will get through this.
But I got to admit though, If the redmi note 10 was any trassion product with such failed durability tests, the way xiaomi fans for dey make fun of them for this forum eh, no be today.

That's it , i just always look at those mumu iphone users wey know nothing about tech , samsung is just boss they're doing almost all the main spec for some flagship phone
|Re: Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra: Xiaomi Is Trying To Kill Samsung by Meister(m): 8:43pm On Apr 13|
LoL, samsung and iphones that are trying to make as much profit as possible from every single device they sell. They don't add those stuffs cause it'll cost more money and reduce their profit nothing else
|Re: Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra: Xiaomi Is Trying To Kill Samsung by abatically(m): 10:05pm On Apr 13|
Samsung can afford to slow down innovation because they are already at the top. Of course they worked hard to get where they are and threw everything they had at it to get there. Back around 2010-2013 samsung where the king of innovations, trying new stuff, some worked, some were just gimmicks but they kept fishing out innovations after innovations. I could remember when they released the first galaxy note, it was so big and people made fun of them. Today the phones we have are bigger than that galaxy note. Oh and how can I forget the galaxy zoom, the phone with enoumous camera, I'm fact it was a camera with phone functionality. Samsung have done all the hard work and now they are just relaxing waiting to see what the oppositions bring. But they shouldn't relax too much, remember nokia and blackberry.
Xiaomi on the other hand are trying to get to the top, so it is no surprise they try as much as possible to make their flagship phones to try to beat Samsung. At the moment no matter how much they try samsung will still sell more flagship phones but if they continue they will eventually catch up.

That samsung makes displays for other oem's doesn't mean they must have the best display (even though samsung phones have been having the best displays for years). Sony makes camera sensors for many phones but sony phones don't always have the best camera (until the sony xperia pro but ridiculously expensive). Xiaomi used samsung's display and made it better. It has everything a samsung display has plus better peak brightness and dolby vision support and 480hz sampling rate.
