not as much, but still there is a difference. Discuss

An expert of the Mobiltelefon.ru channel in a YouTube issue spoke about the pros and cons of Xiaomi Redmi Note 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro 5G and 11S smartphones.

If we talk about the characteristics in general, thenthe differences between the devices of the Note 11 line are in the screen size, refresh rate, processors, RAM, cameras, charging power, weight and dimensions.

The equipment in all cases is almost identical.Together with each of the devices you get a power supply, a cable, a needle for opening the SIM card tray, a case. The protective film is also already pasted on the screen of smartphones. However, despite the fact that Note 11 and 11S have the same power supply (33 W) and the same battery capacity (5000 mAh), the 11S charges up to 100 percent faster: in 70 minutes versus 85 minutes for 11. The same situation with 11 Pro and 11 Pro 5G: the first is fully charged in 60 minutes, the second in 57 minutes (67 W power supply).

Devices are also discharged in different ways.Although there is a 5000 mAh battery everywhere, the Redmi Note 11 holds a charge longer than the rest (in two hours of using YouTube, it lost 11 percent of its charge, and also 11 percent in an hour of playing SuperTuxKart). In second place is the autonomy of 11 Pro 5G (lost 12 percent and 14 percent, respectively), in third - 11S (the charge decreased by 12 and 16 percent, respectively). Worse than the rest, the Note 11 Pro lasted: its charge was reduced by 15 and 16 percent, respectively.


As for the displays, according to their characteristicscan be divided into two groups. The first includes the screens of Note 11 and 11S, the second - 11 Pro and 11 Pro 5G. The former has a refresh rate of 90 Hz and the touch is 180 Hz, the latter has a refresh rate of 120 Hz and the touch is 360 Hz. The maximum brightness is the same in all cases. The screens differ from each other in color reproduction, but these differences are quite insignificant.

The main camera has 108 MP for all models except Note 11. In the regular version of Xiaomi Redmi Note 11, the resolution of the main module is only 50 MP. You can see all the characteristics of the cameras below.

If we talk about the quality of pictures, then at nightthe shots noticeably lack detail on the Note 11. The 11 Pro produces the sharpest photos in this mode, but at the same time, the smartphone seems to lack dynamic range. Basically, the difference between the pictures from these devices lies precisely in clarity.

It is also interesting that only 11 Pro can shoot on a wide-angle camera in night mode (examples of photos are below).

In general, 11 Note in all cases produced pictures worse than other devices, or about the same. Most often, the 11S and 11 Pro 5G were in the lead in terms of quality.


Record video smartphones on the main cameracan maximum in Full HD 30 fps. Stabilization works well at the same time on 11 Note, 11S, 11 Pro. There is stabilization on the 11 Pro 5G, but for some reason, rattling is noticeable during shooting.

Among the processors on Redmi Note 11 is Snapdragon 680, on 11S and 11 Pro - MediaTek Helio G96, on 11 Pro 5G - Snapdragon 695.

You can see the results obtained in benchmarks below. In general, the Note 11 is better than the rest in terms of stability, and the Note 11 Pro 5G in terms of performance.



All models in the Note 11 line have powerful maincharacteristics. These are, for example, an AMOLED screen, a high refresh rate, a fast touch, the presence of an ultra-wide-angle lens, etc. To understand which smartphone is right for you, you must answer five questions. They are related to the size of the diagonal of the screen, the frequency of hertz, triple (on 11 and 11S) or double (on 11 Pro and 11 Pro 5G) tray for memory cards and SIM cards, a powerful processor for games, fast charging, cameras. In general, it is very difficult to say which device from Note 11, 11S, 11 Pro and 11 Pro 5G is better.
