Ergonomics: 5G requires, Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G wins the point
The Redmi Note 11 more or less shares a common ergonomics. This is necessarily the case with the Note 11 and Note 11, which are based on the same case weighing 179 grams, each with a screen that occupies 84.5% of its front. Also in their honor is the integration of a 3.5 mm slot, a microSD card holder, a fingerprint reader on the edge and an IP53 certification. Be careful, it means that the dust does not scare them and that they are resistant to splashes, but not that they can sink. The Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G, which also has these features, is the only one that offers 5G support, making it the model of choice for those looking for a device that makes the most of mobile networks. However, it is a little bigger and heavier, with its 202 grams on the scales.

Screen: the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G front, thanks to 120 Hz
|Redmi Note 11||Redmi Note 11s||Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G|
|Maximum brightness||725 cd / m²||768 cd / m²||820 cd / m²|
|Minimum brightness||1.9 cd / m²||2.2 cd / m²||2.5 cd / m²|
|Color temperature||6720 mm||6769 Χιλ||6707K|
As you will understand, the Redmi Note 11 and Note 11 share almost all of their components and this applies to their 6.43 inch screens. Like the Pro model, they offer an Amoled panel, but deviate from it with a refresh rate of 90 Hz (non-adaptive) when the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G reaches 120 Hz (and benefits from 6.67 inches). Apart from this detail, these three smartphones provide a satisfactory screen, the 11 and 11s manage to exceed 700 cd / m² and the 11 Pro 5G reach 820 cd / m². We also note a satisfactory colorimetry, with the possibility, with a slight adjustment to the parameters of the three devices, to obtain a color temperature around 6700 K and deltaE between 1.3 and 1.5, indicating very low color displacements. In short, unless you fully adhere to the 120 Hz refresh rate, you do not need to switch to the more expensive Redmi.

Performance: the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G wins
If there is one notable difference between the three Redmi Note 11s, it is the chipset that drives them. The Redmi Note 11 is based on Qualcomm Snapdragon 680, the Redmi Note 11s on MediaTek Helio G96 and the Redmi Note 11 Pro on Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 (with 5G modem). It is clear that everything provides a fairly similar experience in the multitasking department and is comfortable to use on a daily basis. They stand out in the field of gaming, the model 11 does very well, with its ability to display an average of 46 fps, well above the 33 fps of the Note 11s. The Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G does a little better (57 fps on average), actually, but at a much higher price: it is therefore a matter of priority.
Photo: almost perfect equality between the three Redmi
The Redmi Note 11, all references together, are not distinguished photographers. They certainly do very well, but you do not need to turn to the most expensive in the series to get the best results. With the 50 megapixel main sensor (f / 1.8 wide-angle optics), the Redmi Note 11 also produces the most user-friendly shots, especially when the light is there, we have to admit. Despite the 108 megapixel main sensor, the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G does not do better.

Autonomy: an advantage for the Redmi Note 11
All Redmi Note 11 smartphones are equipped with 5000 mAh batteries, but the fastest charge (67 W) remains committed to the Pro model, as the 11 and 11S are “enough” with 33 W chargers. Autonomy, it is clear that the Redmi Note The 11 is the most convincing, as it could withstand 21 hours and 44 minutes of use with the Aim protocol. The Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G should not be surpassed, with 19 hours and 50 minutes, and even the Redmi Note 11s (17 hours 10 minutes) is one of the good students of the moment.
