A variation of the Redmi Note 11, Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 11S plays the difference on points of detail. But if it is slightly more expensive than its brother, the smartphone is not really more efficient.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 11S
Introductory price €249
Alternative to the Redmi Note 11, Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 11S is charged slightly more, but delivers a very comparable service. With an identical design, it also benefits from a successful Amoled screen, subject to being properly calibrated, and offers sufficient performance for everyday life. On the other hand, we note that the choice of a MediaTek Helio 96 chip weighs on its graphics performance and its autonomy, without however penalizing it disproportionately. Conversely, the integration of a 108 megapixel photo module allows it to deliver slightly more satisfactory shots. If an additional cost linked to an increase in image quality is justified, it is a shame that this gain is clouded by less power. But ultimately, it is clear that this Redmi Note 11S is a very decent mid-range smartphone.
- Nice AMOLED screen.
- Simple but effective design.
- Daytime wide-angle photos.
- Disappointing ultra wide-angle, especially at night.
- No 5G.
- Graphics performance worse than that of the Redmi Note 11.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 11
After a lackluster Note 10 series, Xiaomi is recovering with this Redmi Note 11. The entry-level smartphone from the Chinese firm is a good proposition for those who need a terminal that can do everything, without necessarily excelling. Without working a miracle, this model corrects a passable photo component in its predecessor and offers a good Oled panel. Finally, its autonomy is very correct in 60 Hz or 90 Hz.
