After our Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G video review, in our latest video review, we are turning our attention to 4G Mi 11 Lite. It is € 100 cheaper in Europe than the 5G model, so does business-money save? Mi 11 will break down the pros and cons of Lite.
The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite goes for a dual-glass design with 4G, although this model brings a shiny return rather than the matte that we saw on the 5G model. As the name “Light” suggests, the phone is really thin and tips the scales at just 157 grams.

The 6.55 AMOLED display with 905 refresh rate and FHD + resolution provided a brighter and brighter experience here. It is important to note that the 4G model comes with HDR10 support instead of HDR10 + and Gorilla Glass 5 protection compared to the GG6 on the 5G version.
You also get a 16MP selfie shooter here, though we can’t really tell the difference from the 5G model compared to the 20MP snapper. The stereo speaker setup was very loud and functioned like the 5G model.
The biggest difference comes from the chipset department where we have the Snapdragon 732G SoC instead of the Snapdragon 780G. Performance in daily tasks is similar in both respects, although you can see the difference in more demanding game titles. Of course, 5G connectivity is another difference, but its usage depends on the quality of its implementation in your region.
