In August, Shiomi announced a rebranding and decided to give up the Mi brand name attached to its products, and replace it with Xiaomi, with the intention of establishing the company's presence and name around the world.

About two weeks ago, the Chinese manufacturer in Israel launched the Xiaomi 11T Pro, which is one of the first devices in the local market to give up the pair of letters Mi.



The new smartphone was launched as (another) the company's flagship device, and offers quite advanced specifications - such as a Snapdragon 888 processor, a screen at a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a full charge in less than 20 minutes - with a price tag of NIS 2,699.

Is it worth the money?

We checked.

Design and screen

The screen of the Xiaomi 11T Pro comes with a 6.67-inch AMOLED panel - which is a little difficult to operate with one hand - in Full HD + resolution and supports a high refresh rate of up to 120 Hz.

At the top of the display, inside a small hole, from the place of the selfie camera with a sensor with a resolution of 16 megapixels.



Like the company's other premium models, the device has a rounded, thin and slippery body and it's just a pleasure to hold on to.

The frame is made of glossy aluminum in part, and on the top right side is the lock button that also serves as a fingerprint sensor.

Overall, the structure of the device is relatively light - 204 grams.

The back of the device uses hard plastic, with the model we received coming with a rough finish in a unique color, in which purple, blue and white are mixed in metallic shades.

However, the material from which the back is made "absorbs" fingerprints excessively and luckily there is a cover that will save you from this suffering.



Anyway, the AMOLED screen does not disappoint and displays accurate and sharp colors that look great.

At the same time, the high image refresh rate of 120 Hz creates a smooth flow when navigating the interface, and if you have not yet used a smartphone with this technology, it will be very difficult for you to go back.

Performance and interface

In terms of hardware you get excellent performance here and a device that does not stutter.

The Xiaomi 11T Pro combines Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888 5G chip, Adreno 660 graphics processor, along with 12GB of RAM, 256GB of internal storage and NFC connectivity.



Overall, the use of the device interface was smooth and we did not encounter slowness (even with relatively prolonged use), switching between applications, browsing between applications and watching movies or surfing the web.

On the other hand, the device comes with Android 11 in the MIUI 12.5 shell - Shiomi's user interface, which is always revealed as an Achilles heel in the manufacturer's phones.



This is an interface that requires an adjustment period for those who are not accustomed to the company's devices - even for those who will make the transition from a Samsung device.

And it's not a slow or bad version, and in fact the problem lies with the manufacturer's load of its operating system in applications - alongside the decision to remove the app drawer.

Super-fast charging

The 11T Pro comes with a huge battery with a capacity of 5,000 mAh, which supports fast charging with a power of 120 watts in Hyper Charge technology.

Smart battery management can also be found here, according to the company, and in practice a day of use - which included videos alongside social networks - ended with 20% of battery.

One detail that may be a little disappointing is that you will not find wireless charging here.



The charger that comes in the package is huge and heavy - like another smartphone, but provided amazing results.

On paper (under laboratory conditions) Shiomi guarantees full charge (from 0% to 100%) in just 17 minutes.

In practice, I got charged from 3% to 100% in 20 minutes.

And let there be no doubt, this is an exceptional result, and the charging rate of the device depends on a long list of factors.

Charging speed by time

  • 10:54: 3%

  • 10:55: 10%

  • 10:56: 20%

  • 10:58: 30%

  • 10:59: 40%

  • 11:01: 50%

  • 11:04: 60%

  • 11:06: 70%

  • 11:08: 80%

  • 11:12: 90%

  • 11:14: 100%

Shiomi emphasizes that the smartphone is certified to the German charging standard TUV Rheinland for fast and safe charging, along with support for a charging system that contains 34 safety features that maintain the safety of the battery, device and charger.

The camera system includes a main camera with a 108-megapixel sensor, an lens with an 8-megapixel sensor for 120-degree photography, and a telephoto camera with a 5-megapixel sensor.

The front camera of the devices offers a sensor with a resolution of 16 megapixels.



The photographs are quite impressive, they are colorful - but not overly so with colors that are faithful to the original.

The level of detail, even of small objects, is very high compared to the cameras you will find in the mid-range models.

On the other hand, by default, the photo quality is not in full resolution as promised, and in order to shoot at 108 megapixels, you have to select this option in the settings manually.

Meanwhile, the sensor produces rich details even in low light conditions.

For example, at night the image quality was great and the lens absorbed a lot of light - often too much.

The level of detail when zooming in shows the objects well and you can get clear images without smearing.

Bottom line

The Xiaomi 11T Pro is a flagship in the full sense of the word, and combines some features you'll only find in the category - like an advanced processor, a great camera, super-fast charging and a quality screen at a refresh rate of 120 Hz.

On the other hand, you will not find wireless charging here and the busy operating system may disappoint some users.

Looking for a premium smartphone with a not very high price tag - this phone will do the job.
