Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G, analysis: the real relief of both heavy and large mobile phones

Xiaomi has expanded its Mi line over the years, initially for its sole flagship. It has already settled with mid-range options, it diversifies and we have an example of this in the analysis of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G, the vitaminized alternative in relation to the 4G version of the Mi 11 Lite.

In his presentation, we saw that it was a similar gamble to the 4G version, but this time it does not go with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G, but with the Snapdragon 780 5G. So let’s see if the experience changes with this processor and how.

Along with the Realme 8 Pro, the Mi 11 Lite 5G is a breath of fresh air between bulky and heavy mobile phones alike. It’s a compressed version of the Xiaomi Mi 11 with that same carefree touch a light, comfortable and attractive phone.

It is noticeable that it is smooth, with no curvature at the back, and that with its matte finish nothing gets dirty, curiously the opposite of the experience we had with the Mi 11 Lite 4G in black. It doesn’t slip either and the only thing that might stand out is that if we wear it without a cover and let it rest on a surface, it can swing a bit, but overall the idea is that: a breath of fresh air from both thick and heavy mobile.

The Mi 11 Lite 5G is a relief for both fat and heavy mobile

The camera module is fairly unobtrusive, but having a rather minimalist aesthetic, in general, isn’t something that weighs too much on the whole. At the front, we see the front camera protruding from a hole on the left, so the frames are considerably reduced. And while we see the fingerprint reader on the side, it is so discreet that it doesn’t change visually from seeing a standard power button.
