This will be priced at above Rs. 25k

IpsDisplay, 12 Apr 2021Honestly this excellent battery life makes me even angrier ... moreIt's supposed to be thin and Lite as opposed to their bulky flagships offerings from the MI 11 series

A phone that lives up to the "Lite" Tag.

Xiaomi does it once again by providing an actual "Lite" version of their flagship without compromising on looks, performance and other things that usually get cut in the "Lite" versions.

Anonymous, 12 Apr 2021What is "OIS"??? OIS - Optical Image Stabilization.

It helps for both taking photos and videos. The shutter speed during photography can be longer and hence the sensors captures more light and you get a better photo. For video it makes it more stable without the same need for cropping with EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization).

It's not the end of the world to be without OIS if you primarily use your phone with a tripod, or other stand, or gimbal for photo/video.

Snapdragon 780G makes a lot of sense and fair balance between performance and efficiency. Apart from the missing IP rating, this phone is just so perfect. Well done Xiaomi! If given a choice, would still prefer IP and OIS of A52 but, this one is better. My preference for OIS and IP rating is personal and based on past experiences.

I wish the back was plastic. It could have looked the same, but be much more durable. The frosted finish could render minor scratches virtually invisible.

I know that solution but the phone will have nad battery and etc.

These 8mp ultrawides are making me mad, especially considering even the poco x3 has better one.

This might be my next phone IF the 4G model is around the same price as redmi note 10 pro. This is seriously a better proposition. Note 10 series users are already facing display problems with no proper response/solution from redmi.
IF 5G is around 20k with discounts in india, it ll sell like hot cakes.

does any body knows how much brightness they put on the devices while making this battery test

thanks in advance

Big thumbs up to Xiaomi for making a slimmer, lighter, slightly more compact footprint in the midrange.

Performance of the SD780G looks phenomenal - on a par with my SD855 Mi MIX 3 5G in Geekbench, slightly ahead in Antutu. What's more the Mi 11 Lite is almost 3mm thinner and 65gm lighter! 10bit display not to be sniffed at either.

Don't really have budget constraints, but the fact that I'd consider this in the same breath as the new Realme GT (also relatively compact) reflects well on Xiaomi's achievement here.

Great review guys, very helpful.
