Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G Reviewby elina John IT Expert
The Mi 11 Lite Duo 5G truly looks like a Lite version of the Xiaomi Mi 11 flagship. They both comprise similar design models. Both models consist of powerful chipset, high-end HRR OLED mobile screens, and camera setups with resembling capabilities.
Price and Availability
Design and Display
When I started testing the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite, the first spec I observed was its weight. It is 159g, which is one of the lightest smartphones you can get today. With makers adding larger batteries, metal designs, phones have become thick and heavier over the past three years. The transition from the Mi 11 Ultra, which is a giant 234g phone, to the Mi 11 Lite is refreshing. This is one of the thin and light-weighted phones in the market at just 6.8mm.

Battery and Performance
● Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 780G, 8GB RAM
● Software: MIUI 12 over Google Android 11 OS
● Battery: 4250mAh, 33W fast-charging
● Storage: 128GB/256GB, microSD
Battery life is the first thing that we estimated would not be long-lasting in the Mi 11 Lite Duo 5G. It is because Mi 11 Lite is very slim and light-weighted. But it’s not as it looks like. For beginners, the 4,250mAh battery is pretty good. It can easily last for 16 hours in a day with about 25% or more battery remaining. This battery life is sufficient enough for a person in a day for doing basic functions on the phone.
Well, we were unable to find a 5G signal location during testing because of lockdown and all that. So, whether a 5G signal would negatively impact battery life is still a matter of debate. However, there is a 5G option in the Settings app to toggle the connectivity off when it's not required. This toggling would increase the battery life of the phone.
