Xiaomi, the Chinese brand that has made it big in Southeast Asia and India, has finally released its new flagship device, the Redmi Note 11S, just in time for the holiday season. Not only does this phone come with amazing hardware, but it also comes at an affordable price. Let’s take a look at what you can expect from the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11S!


Although it doesn’t have bleeding-edge specs, Xiaomi’s latest budget flagship offers a lot for its $240 price tag. The Note 11S has a 6.43 inches display with a 1080 x 2440 resolution and an aspect ratio of 20:9, making it perfect for watching a video or doing other productivity tasks. Inside, there’s a 12nm – MediaTek Helio G96 chip, paired with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. For more local storage, you can add up to 128GB via a microSDXC (dedicated slot) card. There are Quad 108 MP, 26mm (wide) and 8 MP ultra-wide, a 2 MP macro, and a 2 MP depth sensor. cameras on both sides of the phone — great for capturing selfies — and there’s a Li-Po 5000mAh battery inside to keep things juiced up throughout your day.


The design of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11S looks great. The matt back and curved edges create a comfortable feel in your hand, which is further enhanced by an ergonomic shape. With a front-facing camera above the screen, earpiece on top, and sensors below it, there are no buttons or ports on Xiaomi Redmi Note 11’s front surface. That means you have to get used to opening up a flap on the right side of Note 11S to access the SIM card tray and microSD card slot (up to 256GB). While you can use either space for dual SIM cards or storage expansion, only one of them can be used at any given time.

The new display on Note 11s has an 18.7:9 aspect ratio and is a notch at it. It’s a 6.3-inch display with FHD+ resolution (1080 x 2440) and a pixel density of 403 pixels per inch that translates to crisp visuals and great color reproduction. It also comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 which makes it sturdy and prone to scratches less than other handsets in its price range. The AMOLED panel provided by Samsung Display, coupled with a 90Hz refresh rate, ensures that images are more vivid, sharp, and lifelike without any lag while scrolling or switching between apps. As far as multimedia consumption goes, the Note 11s is truly worth its weight in gold.


I am very impressed with the phone's camera specifications. Xiaomi Redmi Note 11S is equipped with a Quad-camera module that includes a 108 Megapixel camera on the rear. Color, detail, and fine-level dynamic range are accurately captured, which makes the image quality good for its class. Night mode pictures, on the other hand, do not provide as clear pictures as they may convey photos with muddy details.

Moving on to the secondary camera setup: it includes an 8 MP ultra-wide, a 2 MP macro, and a 2 MP depth sensor. We now have a quad-camera system. Each lens has its unique characteristics and works with the image processing unit to the best of its abilities. However, you won't have a big impact if you don't use the native camera app's extensive customization features. The results using the primary camera should be satisfactory to most users.

There is a 16 MP front camera with a wide-angle that makes group selfies easy. The colors and sharpness of self-portraits are nice, but the noise in low light can be an issue. With a rear camera, videos can only be taken in 1080p@30fps, so they are not extremely sharp and stabilized. Overall, I would rate the camera as good value for the money.


One of our favorite parts about Android One phones is that they run stock Android and get monthly security updates. With MIUI, you can’t uninstall a pre-installed app (though you can hide it), and both Apple and Google allow you to disable or delay security updates. You don’t need to go all-in on Android One if you just want clean software, but stock gives it an edge. If nothing else, running stock makes us feel less icky about recommending MIUI phones when a version of Android 11, MIUI 13. we trust isn’t available yet in your country (or at all). It feels good to know that your phone will get monthly patches for bugs and vulnerabilities.


The 6.3 FHD+ AMOLED display on The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro offers great color reproduction, high brightness levels, and solid sunlight visibility. Even at max brightness, the text is crisp enough to read in direct sunlight which made it easy for me to navigate around with ease. The 90Hz refresh rate along with a 1ms response time also makes gaming a joy as there are very few blurs or smudges while playing games or watching videos. There’s also no lag while scrolling through your social media feeds even when multitasking either. Overall, I was very impressed by its display performance!

Battery Life

This phone packs a massive Li-Po 5000 mAh battery that will last you all day. The 12nm – MediaTek Helio G96 chip inside also does a fantastic job of keeping power consumption to a minimum. This means that even with heavy use, you can easily get 8 hours of screen on time from one charge. That’s impressive for any phone and still more than most phones in its price range can offer. You can keep your light notifications on at night, connect Bluetooth devices, and stream music during workouts without worrying about losing battery life during an important meeting or client call.

Value for Money

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11S comes in at just $ 258.00 / € 240.00, which makes it one of (if not THE) cheapest phones you can buy with a screen that tall. For $219, you get a massive 6.39-inch screen, 64GB storage, MediaTek Helio G96 chip, up to 8GB RAM, and Li-Po 5000 mAh battery. Granted it's got some shortcomings like no expandable storage or memory card slot, but these don’t detract from what is an amazing phone for under $240. If you’re looking for a big-screen budget smartphone without having to compromise on features and build quality – look no further than the Redmi Note 11S.
