Xiaomi 10T VS Xiaomi 11T


The main differences between the Xiaomi 10T and the Xiaomi 11T are the following:

  • Weight – The Xiaomi 11T is 13g lighter to carry and use as compared to the Xiaomi 10T.
  • Front Camera – The Xiaomi 10T’s front camera lens has 4 megapixels more compare to the new Xiaomi 11T’s front camera. This is an awful downgrade for the new the Xiaomi 11T as it will take less perfect photos or videos compare to the Xiaomi 10T.
  • Rear Camera – Firstly the layout for both smartphones are totally different. The Xiaomi 11T’s rear camera layout looks more elegant compare to the Xiaomi 10T’s rear camera. But when it comes to megapixels between the two smartphones, there are some mixed emotions. Yes, one rear camera lens for the Xiaomi 11T has improved by double the megapixels compared the Xiaomi 10T’s one rear camera lens. However, there is one camera lens of the Xiaomi 11T that has decreased in megapixels. This gives some mixed emotions for user, but I believe the 108 megapixel rear camera lens will convince more user to take the Xiaomi 11T.
  • RAM – The Xiaomi 10T has two RAM memory size options, while the Xiaomi 11T only has one. However, both smartphones offer the highest RAM memory size option.
  • Storage – The Xiaomi 11T has two on board storage memory size to choose from. Whereas, the Xiaomi 10T only has one on board storage memory size. Of course, the Xiaomi 11T offers the highest on board storage memory size and can store way more data and applications than compare to the Xiaomi 10T.
  • Battery Capacity – Both smartphones offer the same battery capacity size. However, the Xiaomi 11T charges its battery way faster in speed than compare to the Xiaomi 10T charge speed.

Overall: The Xiaomi 11T has improved quite a bit when comparing it against the Xiaomi 10T. It improved greatly in charging speed, bigger on board storage memory size and being lighter to carry. Yes, the Xiaomi 11T has also improved in its camera specs, but they also decreased in certain camera lenses. This question why Xiaomi did that and not keep the same megapixels or improved it. It is never good to let a product to go backwards. Overall, the Xiaomi 11T is a good smartphone to look out for.

 

Xiaomi 10T Pro VS Xiaomi 11T Pro


The main differences between the Xiaomi 10T Pro and the Xiaomi 11T Pro are the following:

  • Weight – The Xiaomi 11T Pro is 14g lighter to carry as compared to the Xiaomi 10T Pro.
  • Front Camera – Exactly the same as its Xiaomi 11T counterpart, the Xiaomi 11T Pro’s front camera lens is 4 megapixels less than compare to the Xiaomi 10T Pro front camera lens. Not good at all for selfie lovers.
  • Rear Camera – Both smartphones has the same circumstance as their previous smartphone counterparts. Both smartphones have different rear layouts and the megapixels are way different between the two. The Xiaomi 11T Pro will most likely take the best photos and videos for its users when comparing against the Xiaomi 10T Pro.
  • RAM – The Xiaomi 11T Pro has two RAM memory size options to choose from whereas the Xiaomi 10T Pro only has one RAM memory size option. The Xiaomi 11T Pro offers a faster RAM memory size option than compare to the Xiaomi 10T Pro’s RAM memory size option.
  • Battery Capacity – Like their counterparts, both smartphones offer the same battery size capacity. However, the Xiaomi 11T Pro’s battery recharges faster in speed than compare to the Xiaomi 10T Pro’s battery charge speed.

Overall: The Xiaomi 11T Pro basically is exactly the same as its counterpart, Xiaomi 11T. The Xiaomi 11T Pro just has a faster battery recharge capability and a higher RAM memory size option that can process data faster than compare to its counterpart and the previous Xiaomi 10T Pro.

 

Conclusion


The Xiaomi 11T series is bringing some good features for the smartphone industry. However, most of its features is already available in other smartphones and especially from its competitors.

The only main feature that stand out for me of the Xiaomi 11T series smartphones are the following:

  • The extreme battery fast charge capability. It is the fastest smartphone series that can charge their batteries full in a short amount of time. Just concerned about the batteries quality though if they won’t reduce the capacity more quickly due to this fast speed. Just make sure you never recharge this smartphones series overnight. Only the amount it requires.

The only concern I have for the Xiaomi 11T series is its camera specs. Yes, some have camera lenses have improved in megapixels, but some camera lenses has decreased in megapixels as well. It is always a concern when a smartphone goes backwards in its specs and not welcoming to many users.

Overall, the Xiaomi 11T series smartphones look like a decent big smartphones and will satisfy many users. However, they have many competitors that offer the same similar features besides the extreme rapid fast charging option. Thus, I believe the Xiaomi 11T series smartphones will attract more users that need their smartphones charged to full power capacity in short time periods.

  1. Woah! Really impressive charging method this phone has, but since it seems like it charges the phone in such a short time, does that mean that the charge will not last long? This phone does have some impressive features like the cinematic portrait that the camera will feature plus the overall look of the phone seems fairly durable. I haven’t had any of these phones before, but who knows? Maybe a little change can go a long way.

      If a charger charges so fast, there is always that possibility the charger itself will get faulty quicker than expected and it will force you to buy another charger. It is my only concern about about the charging method plus I would not recommend to share the charger to a different smartphone as the quick surge might damage an other smartphone.

      The other features are also good, but I believe the fast charging is the main feature that Xiaomi 11T series brings to the market. I hope you might consider to try one of the Xiaomi 11T series smartphones. Thank you for taking the time to comment.

  2. One thing I’ve come to appreciate with time on a smartphone is a quality camera. Sometimes I go through my collection of photos and realize the many memorable life moments I’ve captured over time. Some that I’d have a hard time remembering clearly. The camera on this 11T release seems not to live up to your expectation. A camera, to me, is one of the main selling points and should not be overlooked. Though for budget devices, I know some things have to be compromised.

      The camera specs on a smartphone has become a critical point in smartphone sales for a long time. Like you said, users want to capture beautiful photos and videos by their smartphone. You see hardly users still using a physical camera or video camera to capture those memories, cause smartphones have the same or even better capabilities.

      The Xiaomi 11T series camera specs are good. However, I always get concerned when some specs go backwards or become less. Yes, it is good for a budget smartphone user. However, if the price of the Xiaomi 11T is high, then you will see less users to be interested for it. Thus, I would say depends on the price of the Xiaomi 11T and how it stands out compare to other smartphones that offer similar features.

  3. This looks like an awesome phone! I love, love, LOVE the 17-minute charging time.  I am also interested in the night mode and cinematic mode as I make videos using my cell phone to post online.  I have never heard of this brand, though.  Is it available in the US?  And is the phone compatible with any video editing apps?  I look forward to hearing more about this phone!

      I also love the quick charging time to make the Xiaomi 11T series smartphones full power. It is amazing, but I do question if the charger will last long. The camera modes is also interesting as the iPhone 13 series is also introducing these features. 

      Xiaomi smartphone brand is available in US market and Xiaomi is actually the second best smartphone brand worldwide currently. Thus, I would recommend to look at their products. Yes, this smartphone is compatible with any video editing apps.

  4. Thanks Burnheart for very profound review on Xiaomi 11T series. I’ve been iDevice user for 10 years. The reason is quite simple, I’ve all my tools and data in Apple ecosystem. However I like to read reviews like yours and know for sure that there are technically better mobile phones than iPhones. But changing ecosystem feels just too much of work and it will be probably a big hassle.

      You are so right when it comes to changing from one platform to another. If you worked almost entirely on one platform and need to change, you will experience some applications or data will not pull through to the new platform you want to try out. It is even worst if everything you use is on one platform and now one change causes the rest not to be in sync with each other.

      That is why I wrote about different smartphone platforms to ensure everybody knows the difference of all smartphone platforms. Glad you are viewing other smartphone platforms and compare it against the smartphone platform you have now. I think you might find the iPhone 13 Series article I wrote interesting. Thank you for compliments and taking the time to comment.
