Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE review
A familiar triple-camera setup
As we already pointed out, there's no difference in the camera hardware between the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G and the New Edition. The same 64MP main camera with f/1.8 aperture, 1/1.97" sensor size and 0.7µm pixel size leads the pack along with a common 8MP, f/2.2, 1/4.0", 1.12µm ultrawide camera. The 5MP f/2.4 macro shooter with autofocus is here to stay too.
Selfies are shot using a 20MP camera with f/2.2 aperture, 1/3.4" sensor size and 0.8µm pixels.
And even though the ISPs are different in the previous and the new edition, Xiaomi has made sure consistency is on point. We didn't find any difference in how the 11 Lite 5G and the 11 Lite 5G NE handle daylight and low-light scenes. We didn't see any discrepancy in the Night mode's performance too.
That's great news because we were pleased by the standard 11 Lite 5G's camera performance in the first place. Still, we have some daylight and low-light camera samples for you to enjoy. For the full assessment, you can refer to the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G review.
Here are some daylight samples with the main camera, 2x zoom crop from the main camera, ultrawide and, of course, macro.
Can't go without some low-light samples as well.
The 2x zoom mode supports Night mode too.
The ultrawide quality can also be improved by using Night mode.
Here's how the primary camera on the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE stacks against the rest of the competition in the controlled environment of our Photo Compare Tool.
And here are the video samples using the main and the ultrawide cameras. The ultrawide caps at 1080p while the main one can go up to 2160p@30fps.
Once you are done with the real-life scenarios, take a look at our video compare tool to see how the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE stacks against the other phones we've reviewed.
