- Xiaomi 11T Pro 5G: Kamera im Test
The bar is high: the Mi 10T Pro, the predecessor of our test model, was recommended as a price hit a year ago. And the slightly more expensive successor? Xiaomi gives it proven strengths. This includes a comfortable 6.7 inch screen, which is surrounded by a flawlessly finished housing. The smooth, reflective glass back has a high-quality metal look that cannot hide fingerprints.
The 11T Pro, which incidentally does not have the suffix “Mi”, has become a little lighter with a weight of 204 grams and no longer tilts as much thanks to a camera unit that protrudes just under two millimeters. Xiaomi dispenses with extensive, certified protection against ingress of water and dust, as does a fingerprint sensor integrated in the display. It works in the on / off switch and releases the screen extremely quickly and reliably.
A lot has happened with the display: Here the Chinese are following the trend towards self-luminous OLED technology with deep black and strong colors – and of course the permanent information display when the screen is switched off (always-on display). The display, protected by Gorilla Glass Victus, uses a common resolution of 1,080 x 2,400 pixels.
It meets the high expectations in the laboratory and in practice. The dynamic refresh rate also contributes to this. When scrolling or playing action games, up to 120 Hertz are possible. Moving image content temporarily gains clarity without the battery life noticeably suffering.
Top system chip, more memory
As befits an upper-class representative, the 11T Pro promises plenty of computing power. This is guaranteed by a Snapdragon 888. Flanked by 8 gigabytes of RAM, Qualcomm’s top-class system chip also delivers the expected top performance. In the benchmark comparisons, other models with a Snapdragon 888 under the hood were able to achieve even higher scores in some cases.
Xiaomi may have chosen a more cautious vote in favor of lower case heating. At least the temperature increase in our test model was not too high, even in repeated benchmark stress tests. Fortunately, the available storage space has increased significantly. Over 231 GB are available and almost make you forget the missing slot for microSD cards.
Strong software package with a generous update commitment
The remaining 25 GB is occupied by a proven software combination of Android 11 and the Xiaomi user interface MIUI 12.5. This ensures short app loading times and extremely responsive operation. If you want to use your new smartphone longer than usual, you can look forward to an up-to-date system with the 11T series: The Chinese promise three Android upgrades.
Security patches have even been promised for four years. The list of typical Xiaomi extras such as the possibility of creating a second profile or cloning apps also includes an infrared transmitter (IR blaster) with a remote control app. The phone can also use it to control supported TV and audio / video devices.
Powerful stereo speakers
In the era of the Tru-Wireless earphones, the lack of a classic audio connection is put into perspective. The 11T Pro is definitely suitable as a music entertainer. A separate loudspeaker sets the tone on the top and bottom of the plastic frame. The audio specialists from Harman / Kardon are responsible for the powerful, appealing stereo sound.
The triple camera, which is only electronically stabilized, enhances video recordings with a third microphone on the back. With the audio zoom activated, the sound recording focuses more on the subject. In addition to the memory-intensive 8K format with 30 frames per second (fps), a 4K version with 60 fps is also available as the maximum video resolution. Both the videos from the powerful 108-megapixel main camera and the selfies from the 16-megapixel counterpart at the front offer a respectable image quality.
In terms of radio technology, the 11T Pro is state-of-the-art. Both nanoSIM cards can use 5G. With LTE of category 20, the phone can easily exhaust the maximum available download data rates in the 4G networks. Bluetooth 5.2, Google Pay-enabled NFC and WiFi 6 should leave nothing to be desired, even if the average WLAN transfer rates under suboptimal wireless conditions of 166.8 Mbit / s still had some room for improvement.
The USB Type-C interface is content with the older standard version 2.0. Nevertheless, our test lab measured an average of a very respectable 35.7 Mbit / s when exchanging data with external storage devices via the USB port.
Overall strong laboratory appearance
In the acoustic measurements, it was mainly the slightly low volume values in both directions that led to deductions. Top: The transmission and reception services consistently deserve the verbal grade “very good”. Earned wages: 100 points in the measured values category. In the final bill, the upper class novelty with top performance, convincing 108 megapixel main camera and high endurance inherited important advantages from its predecessor.
New additions are a great OLED display, more memory and high-speed charging via cable. Although, as expected, not all the equipment refinements are on board, the Xiaomi 11T Pro with a still very good price-performance ratio can – albeit just – leave its strong predecessor behind.
