Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra review

The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra has a huge screen, world-first camera technology, and incredibly fast charging. But is it the phone for you?

Our review

As incredible as the Mi 11 Ultra is at being a technological showcase piece, it doesn’t quite deliver across the board. The design feels super-premium and its screen and speakers are truly sensational, but the handset doesn’t quite make the cut in terms of battery life and UI polish.

Pros

  • Powerful camera with excellent zoom
  • Sharp, bright, smooth screen
  • Class-leading fast wired and wireless charging

Cons

Xiaomi is a relatively new entry to UK phone shops, especially when compared to established players like Apple and Samsung. If you’re after a budget phone, you’ll be hard-pressed to find more for less than a Xiaomi-special like the Redmi Note 10 Pro, with its pin-sharp 108MP camera and bargain price. The brand does make high-end phones too, and its latest, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, takes things to an extreme, with not one but two screens, over 150 combined megapixels across its four cameras, as well as top-tier power and performance.

Perhaps the most exciting thing about the Mi 11 Ultra is its 50MP main camera. The camera introduces a system that’s never been seen on a smartphone before and delivers a higher specification than many dedicated compact cameras. This means the Mi 11 Ultra can take photos that are loaded with depth, even in darker environments. In fact, it’s safe to call the phone a landmark device from a technology point of view – edging smartphone photography closer to DSLR photography than ever before.

Where Xiaomi’s Mi 11 Ultra is less likely to succeed than its camera is its software. Past Xiaomi phones have always looked good and delivered from a performance point of view. That said, they haven’t been as polished as Galaxys and iPhones in day-to-day use. Can the Mi 11 Ultra break the Xiaomi flagship curse and deliver fantastic user experiences as well as top-tier specs?

What is the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra?

The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is the most suped-up smartphone around. It combines a huge screen, world-first camera technology, and incredibly fast charging. Xiaomi’s pulling no punches in taking on the best from Apple, Samsung and OPPO, but can the Mi 11 Ultra really compete with the polished iPhone 12 or the pen-toting do-it-all Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra?

The Mi 11 Ultra’s specs suggest it more than competes with the competition. From its ceramic design and water-resistant body through to the power within, Xiaomi’s checking all the right boxes. It also introduces a brand new camera sensor, the likes of which have never been seen on a smartphone. With its additional size, the Ultra’s camera sensor makes certain photos shot on the phone look like they were captured on a DSLR.

Far from a one-trick pony, Xiaomi adds stereo speakers to the mix, a top-tier, silky smooth display for immersive listening and watching, as well as plenty of storage space and the best Android processor on the market.

What does the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra do?

  • Plays back the best from Disney Plus and Netflix in all its HDR glory
  • Sounds fantastic thanks to stereo speakers and Harman/Kardon tuning
  • Weighs you down – at 234g, it’s one of the heaviest phones available
  • Captures fantastic photos thanks to its world-first camera tech
  • Records up to 8K resolution video for future-proofed home movies
  • Plays back games fast and furiously with flagship power inside
  • Feels premium thanks to its ceramic finish, despite being unwieldy
  • Controls your TV with an infrared remote control at the top

How much is the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra?

The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra retails for £1,199 in the UK.

Is the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra good value for money?

Based on the fact it packs every spec under the sun, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is indeed good value if specs are your thing. It outclasses phones like the iPhone 12 Pro with its razer sharp, silky smooth screen and betters the OnePlus 9 Pro with that fantastic zoom camera.

If you think you’ll binge-watch on its massive screen for hours, capture photos day and night with its flagship camera and revel in taking selfies using its rear selfie screen, the Mi 11 Ultra will tick your boxes. After all, we can’t argue with the hardware Xiaomi crams in.

Despite all the things it gets right, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is overkill for most. Its day-to-day experiences aren’t quite as compelling, compact or polished as simpler options like the Google Pixel 5, for example. Practically speaking, therefore, the Mi 11 Ultra is a niche phone that is made for tech enthusiasts happy to haul a beefy device around if it means they get to wield a true spec SuperPhone.

Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra features

There are two sides to the Mi 11 Ultra: on the one hand, it’s loaded up with flagship features everyone will enjoy – that screen, those speakers, and its camera. Then there are the specialist elements that make it ‘Ultra’, and in turn, more niche – the huge camera bump with a second display, stacks of power few will push to its limits and the mighty fast wireless charging that requires a specialist charging pad (sold separately).

Starting with the basics, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra runs Android 11, the same smartphone operating system phones made by better-known brands like Samsung and Sony. The Mi 11 Ultra has no app restrictions, making it easy enough to load up with the latest games and services, from Amazon Prime Video, through to Candy Crush and Spotify.

With top-end flagship power, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra can also play the very latest 3D games, including Genshin Impact, at maximum graphics settings. While there’s plenty of power to turbo-charge stunning 3D graphics, the phone also gets warm when gaming for long periods. Accordingly, if you’re a gamer above all else, you might want to consider the Asus ROG Phone 5, which runs significantly cooler.

The degree to which the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is a dream multimedia device can’t be overstated. Its high-resolution screen is pin-sharp, bettering the best iPhones and matching the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra’s crispness. The result is vivid, crisp episodes and movies in your palm. With AMOLED technology, it’s also fantastically vibrant, bright, and matches great looks with responsive interaction for snappy swipes and taps.

If you’ve heard of Harman/Kardon, you’ll know the company makes high-quality sound solutions (and is also the brand behind JBL). What does that have to do with Xiaomi? The Mi 11 Ultra’s speakers are Harman/Kardon tuned, making for an expansive listening experience to complement that A-grade screen.

Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra battery

On paper, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra shouldn’t have any issues lasting a whole day on a single battery charge, and if you’re using it moderately – WhatsApp fired up, occasional picture taking one or two bouts of gaming, or movie watching, it should go the distance.

The large 5,000mAh inside the Mi 11 Ultra doesn’t quite last as long as we anticipated it would in the real world, though. This is especially true once you start ramping up demanding tasks that require the screen to stay on for long periods. There are also a few features the phone supports – super-smooth scrolling and a clock that displays on the front and rear screen even when the phone’s asleep – that we found ourselves having to turn these off in order to make it from morning to night.

There are other ways to save power on the Mi 11 Ultra if you don’t fancy manually dialling back features. There are two battery saving modes in the settings within the Battery and Performance menu: Battery Saver and Ultra Battery Saver. The second option limits background processes and mobile data to deliver almost a month of battery life, albeit while turning your futuristic flagship into a glorified Nokia 3310. Snake anyone?

What the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra does do is charge incredibly quickly. In fact, it’s the only phone around to power up wirelessly as fast as it does. Fast wired and wireless charging means even if it doesn’t always last a full day, topping up its tank needn’t take too long.

Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra camera

Given the size of the camera bump on the back of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, you might think it has five or six cameras – but no. Just like the much more demure iPhone 12 Pro, it sports just three rear cameras – one wide-angle (standard field of view), one ultra-wide angle (that fits more in frame), and one telephoto camera (also known as the zoom camera).

At the helm of the phone’s camera squadron is a high-resolution 50MP camera. Yes, it’s has a lot of pixels, but it’s the physical sensor size that really makes the Mi 11 Ultra unique. The bigger a camera sensor, the better it’s able to capture clear photos even in dimly lit scenes. In turn, the Mi 11 Ultra’s class-leadingly big camera sensor is a boon for night time photographers. The phone also includes two 48MP cameras, one with a 5x zoom and the other with an ultra-wide field of view – not too dissimilar to a GoPro.

With such high-resolution cameras, all three can shoot video at up to 8K, which is significantly sharper than the resolution most mobiles record video (Full HD or 4K). With the phone’s big sensor, it’s also a great video camera in a range of scenes, from dimly lit environments, through to bright, sunny days. And with optical image stabilisation (OIS), across two of its three cameras, very little handshake makes it through to your footage, so the Mi 11 Ultra captures beautifully steady video.

Photography fans can expect to be equally impressed by the Mi 11 Ultra’s camera system as video enthusiasts. Another benefit of a camera featuring the biggest sensor on the block is DSLR-like background blur. Therefore, shots taken on Xiaomi’s new flagship deliver a richer depth than virtually any other smartphone, without the need to switch to a special mode (like Portrait Mode on an iPhone). Very impressive, and potentially reason enough to pick one up.

Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra design/set-up

If you’re thinking about buying the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, you need to be okay with the idea of a huge smartphone in your hand and Not only is the phone large, heavy, and built like a shiny, fancy tank, its camera bump pretty much has its own centre of gravity, jutting out by around half a centimetre from the back of the phone and occupying the whole upper quarter of the back panel. There’s a good reason the Mi 11 has so much junk in that trunk, and it’s that second screen.

Next to the triple camera is a selfie display, so you can use the main cameras to take selfies and super-wide group shots with a visual preview of what’s in the frame. It is handy, though it is also a very small display, making it little more than a guide rather than a truly useful, detail-packed viewfinder. The second screen does also display, which is a bit useful, but generally speaking, the second screen is something we could take or leave.

The Mi 11 Ultra’s design is IP68 water and dust resistant, so it can handle a splash or dunk, and it does look very fancy. We love it in its Ceramic White finish, and it’s also available in Ceramic Black for a more demure aesthetic.

Setting up the Mi 11 Ultra is a simple process if you’re coming from an Android phone. You can use Google’s data transfer tool, quickly importing apps, contacts, Wi-Fi passwords and more. If you want something a bit more comprehensive that handles photos and videos, you can use Xiaomi’s Mi Mover app; however, this requires an install from the Google Play Store once the initial setup is complete.

Despite excellent app support and a generally sleek user interface (UI), the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra’s software experience is one of the few areas the phone feels less polished than the competition. For starters, if dark mode is activated, some button icons appear greyed out within third-party apps like Spotify. This makes it hard to see what you’re pressing and ultimately makes the interface feels half-baked. Additionally, the phone’s dark mode also inverted many of our contacts’ profile pictures, making them look like Nirvana album covers inspired avatars – not a good look.

Our verdict: should you buy the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra?

As incredible as the Mi 11 Ultra is at being a technological showcase piece, it doesn’t quite deliver across the board. Yes, its design feels super-premium. Yes, its camera is one of the best on any smartphone you can buy. And yes – its screen and speakers are truly sensational. That said, where the Mi 11 Ultra doesn’t quite make the cut is battery life and UI polish. Despite charging very quickly, there’s a very real danger Xiaomi’s flagship phone might not make it through a full day on a single charge. Add to that its interface niggles and that giant, oversized bod and camera bump, and while it’s a true marvel for tech fans, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is just a bit too niche for the masses after reliable, solid performance in the areas that matter the most.

Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro vs. Mi 11 Ultra: Big upgrades or just minor tuning? [Video]

Xiaomi’s impressive sales records in recent years have been built upon the back of successful flagship-level devices such as the 12 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra — but which is the better device?

We’ve seen a surge in the sales of all guises of the “Mi” series lineup over the past two years. While the lineup is no longer tagged “Mi,” it continues to live on with solid phones at various price points. Technically released earlier this year in China, the brand new Xiaomi 12 Pro is now available in global markets. It’s the first flagship-level Xiaomi of 2022, and it even stacks up incredibly well against the excellent Mi 11 Ultra released last year.

Like the Mi 11 series from early 2021, the 12 Pro may not end up as the highest-end device in the Xiaomi lineup for 2022. That said, is the Xiaomi 12 Pro, with more than a few bells and whistles, a worthy follow-up to the Mi 11 Ultra? Let’s see just what has changed.

Video — Xiaomi 12 Pro vs. Mi 11 Ultra

xiaomi, ultra, leaks, latest, miui, hints

The usage of the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor definitely favors the Xiaomi 12 Pro from a pure internal hardware perspective, but it’s a much closer battle here than you might have initially thought. There is a new LTPO AMOLED display being utilized by the 2022 flagship here too. Elsewhere things are fairly similar:

Size 6.81-inches 6.73-inches
Display 120Hz / Curved QHD / Gorilla Glass Victus / 515ppi 120Hz / Curved LTPO QHD / Gorilla Glass Victus / 521ppi

Front-facing camera 20MP 32MP
Biometrics Optical in-display fingerprint scanner Optical in-display fingerprint scanner
Colors Ceramic White / Ceramic Black Black / Green / Blue / Pink

Both devices include 120Hz refresh rate curved displays. This is great for UI smoothness and elevates every interaction with the benefit of the LTPO panel and smaller size favoring the 12 Pro slightly here. An LTPO display can dynamically drop the refresh rate on specific on-screen content to help reduce power draw. This might help as the battery size is almost 10% smaller on the newer model.

Toughened Gorilla Glass Victus is used across the duo, while this is said to be 2x tougher than Gorilla Glass 6, a curved screen is still prone to damage. It’s hard to tell the displays apart when side-by-side. At least on paper, the Xiaomi 12 Pro edges the Mi 11 Ultra. The Mi 11 Ultra is a heavily, chunkier handset though. In the hand, the 12 Pro feels positivity slender by comparison.

If you are just looking at the processor, the newer model is a far better choice courtesy of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip. However, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 is not too far behind, and because both devices use UFS 3.1 storage, performance levels in most cases feel very comparable. There is a definite gaming benefit to the newer chip, but it’s worth noting that the Mi 11 Ultra benefits from increased storage options. The base storage on the 12 Pro starts at 128GB versus 256GB on the Ultra model. There is no storage expansion, unfortunately, so it’s important to pick wisely.

Xiaomi’s devices now come with vastly improved haptic motors, meaning that haptic feedback is excellent and among the very best on Android. Crisp taps and touches are guaranteed with each and every interaction. Thanks to dual stereo speakers, the audio experience tuned by Harmon Kardon ensures that watching video content on either the Xiaomi 12 Pro or Mi 11 Ultra is an extremely enjoyable experience.

Software

xiaomi, ultra, leaks, latest, miui, hints

MIUI is easily one of the most feature-rich third-party Android skins available, and thanks to a recent update it technically comes in the same flavor on the Xiaomi 12 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra. That relies heavily upon the rollout of Android 12 to the Mi 11 Ultra — our own test device is still awaiting the OS update. There are also a few little differences courtesy of hardware changes.

Features Harmon Kardon dual speakersWireless chargingReverse wireless charging5G connectivityIP68 ratingIn-display fingerprint scannerRear-display Harmon Kardon dual speakersWireless chargingReverse wireless charging5G connectivityIP68 ratingIn-display fingerprint scanner

Android 12 is not quite the same as Google envisions its own OS. There are plenty of tweaks to the visuals, and there are more than a few areas where MIUI 13 still feels like a homage to iOS. That said, there is a true wealth of added controls and functions that many of the lighter skins from other OEMs simply do not offer.

Biometrics are provided by an optical, in-display fingerprint scanner. This is fast and accurate on both handsets with little UI tweaks to the animations that you can apply here too.

A neat but limited secondary screen on the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra adds a level of intrigue. It can be useful for checking notifications and even as a framing tool when wanting to take selfies with the rear camera setup. While this additional screen is by no means a reason to buy the Mi 11 Ultra over the 12 Pro, it helps differentiate the design.

Xiaomi now offers 3 years of OS upgrades and 4 years of regular security patches and support for its flagship lines after making the change in late-2021. Both handsets get security updates on a 90-day schedule, which falls far short of the likes of Samsung which offers monthly patches and full updates in a timely manner. Although the Chinese OEM made this added support commitment it seems that the Mi 11 Ultra is set to cease getting software support from April 2024, while the Xiaomi 12 Pro should continue to be supported until April 2026.

Battery and charging

xiaomi, ultra, leaks, latest, miui, hints

It’s hard to deny that Xiaomi has helped lead the industry in recent years with regard to device charging speeds. It also helps that the firm is not afraid to throw huge internal batteries into their devices. With power-hungry 120Hz displays, you want to be able to rely on your smartphone to last all day, and the 5,000mAh and 4,600mAh internal cells are more than enough for heavy days — even with the full resolution and refresh rates enabled.

You won’t need to worry about charging speeds on either device. While the Xiaomi 12 Pro comes with insanely fast 120W wired charging. The Mi 11 Ultra includes Rapid 67W wired and wireless charging while both handsets include the ability to reverse wireless charge at 10W speeds. The wireless charging rates are a little slower on the 2022 model, but 50W wireless charging is still a great option to have.

Battery size 5,000mAh 4,600mAh
Charging Speed 67W wired67W Qi wireless10W reverse wireless 120W wired50W Qi wireless10 reverse wireless

Despite an advantage in the internal cell size, the lifespan of both handsets is very close — especially when display resolutions are set to FHD. With the full-fat QHD resolution and 120Hz refresh rate enabled, longevity is still within close limits. That said, it’s important to note that this is anecdotal given that daily usage will vary from person to person.

Cameras

Xiaomi has been really pushing the idea that ultra-high resolutions are what we are all craving on our smartphones. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra easily beats out the 11T Pro in the sheer variety of focal length even though the newer handset has a higher resolution main sensor.

The brand new Xiaomi 12 Pro is the first smartphone to feature the Sony IMX707 1/1.28-inch sensor and, therefore, drops the popular Samsung ISOCELL sensor series for the main lens here. It also means we won’t see any 108-megapixel sensors which have been used on the Xiaomi 11T Pro and Mi 11 series throughout 2021.

The huge new Sony sensor is great for light-gathering, image depth, and low-light performance on the Xiaomi 12 Pro, but the sheer flexibility of the Mi 11 UItra camera setups and its own impressive sensor selection means that it contends very well. While not perfect, the ability to get excellent results at up to 30x zoom, as well as the fun that comes with 120x zoom, is hard to be disappointed by. Digital zoom on the Xiaomi 12 Pro is still impressive but pales in comparison to the dedicated zoom setup of the 2021 flagship.

When you start to look beyond the main sensor, things are still tricky and it becomes harder to fully endorse the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra. The Xiaomi 12 Pro has a vastly superior selfie camera but the neat mini rear display is a great selfie-taking aid for the Mi 11 Ultra. No matter which setup you prefer, these are two of the best camera selections on Android.

The same camera app functions and features are present across both devices, minus some of the ultra zoom functions. This means that you can access things like the improved Night Mode, Dual Video recording, Long Exposure, Movie effects, and full Pro mode controls.

Xiaomi 12 Pro or Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra: Which should I choose?

About upgrading: 9to5Google often gives specific product recommendations. Sometimes, we may suggest not upgrading, due to various reasons including, but not limited to: increased device cost, negligible performance gains, or environmental impact. Whether to upgrade is always your call, but our aim is to help you make as informed a decision as possible.

Separated by a chipset, the Xiaomi 12 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra are two phones that compare very well despite being released almost a year apart. Despite not quite being perfect, the Mi 11 Ultra offers a compelling package, but for those wanting the latest and greatest, the Xiaomi 12 Pro might prove a better long-term buy.

The retail pricing is very similar, but now that the Mi 11 Ultra is a little older, it is priced at a more accessible point. If you are happy to pick up a 12-month old device, this has its distinct advantages. However, the Xiaomi 12 Pro is priced well at 999. Disappointingly if you’re in North American markets, you won’t get to decide between either of these fairly solid smartphones.

Instead, you might want to look at the Pixel 6 Pro or recent Galaxy S22 and S22 Ultra for a comparable smartphone experience. In global regions, the Xiaomi 12 Pro stands alongside the best in the business and is well worth a closer look. Ultimately the choice is yours, but with all of the above information, hopefully, you’ll now know all of the core differences to help you make the all-important purchase decision.

Where can I get the best deal on the Xiaomi 12 Pro or Mi 11 Ultra?

Unfortunately, if you’re in the United States it’s tough to get hold of Xiaomi products via official channels. However, the Chinese OEM does offer a limited selection of their products and smartphones via an official Amazon storefront. In some cases, we would advise against this due to certain devices lacking access to necessary cell network bands.

Alternatively, you can import the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra and 12 Pro from overseas retailers. You will lack official device support in this instance, which makes it hard to recommend unless you simply must have the latest Xiaomi handset.

Xiaomi Unveils Xiaomi 13 Ultra Design Ahead of Launch

Xiaomi fans are waiting for the launch of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra. It’s interesting to see Xiaomi officially releasing the phone’s design on its official Weibo handle just one day before launch. The detailed images confirm the renders that have been circulating online. They are showcasing the thick bump around the camera island.

Xiaomi 13 Ultra Design

The Xiaomi 13 Ultra will boast a metal alloy casing with a second-generation faux leather layer on top. This new leather-like material on the back of the phone adds a touch of luxury. It features an antibacterial coating, making it more hygienic and resistant to dirt for a fresh-look. Additionally, it has a special anti-yellowing coating, maintaining the pristine appearance of the phone over time.

One of the standout features of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra‘s design is the camera bump. The leather bit near the camera bump adds a distinct look to the phone, and the combined thickness of the bump and the leather is rumored to reach 15.6mm. This unique design element not only adds to the aesthetics of the phone but also serves a functional purpose.

Xiaomi has also paid attention to the ergonomics of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra, ensuring a comfortable fit. The top and bottom parts of the phone taper out, the resemblance of a traditional camera design, making it easier to hold and use the phone in landscape mode. This thoughtful design feature enhances the overall user experience, especially for those who enjoy gaming or watching videos on their phones.

The Xiaomi 13 Ultra is expected to deliver top-notch camera performance, as the official images reveal. The larger camera island houses three Sony 50MP IMX858 sensors, including an ultrawide, short telephoto, and long telephoto lens and a 1-inch IMX989 main unit. This powerful camera setup promises stunning photography capabilities, allowing users to capture professional-quality photos and videos easily.

To further build excitement for the Xiaomi 13 Ultra, Xiaomi has also shared a teaser video that displays the phone in its green color variant. The video highlights the sleek design and premium materials of the phone.
