Xiaomi's phones have long been known for their exceptional value proposition. You can always find the latest specs and features in a Xiaomi flagship phone, and it won't cost you an arm and a leg. It's something you don't often see these days when $1,000 has become the standard price for high-end hardware. That's not how Xiaomi rolls, though. With the Mi 11, Xiaomi has one of the best flagship phones on the market, offering killer specs and a great value, unless you happen to be in the US.

The Xiaomi Mi 11 construction is typical of a Xiaomi phone. It has a bezeless design with a hole punch in the top left corner. The Mi 11 has a curved screen, but instead of the classic left-right edge curve, they went for a quad curve. This puts a slight curve to the glass at the top and bottom of the screen, as well as the sides.

I find this quad curve to be a bit nicer for swiping up for home and down for notifications, so I'm willing to take the risk.
The display on the Mi 11 is a 6.81-inch 1440p 120hz AMOLED display with 10-bit color. The 10-bit display means it can output 1.07-billion colors compared to the 16.7-million colors of an 8-bit display. The 1500 nit peak brightness put it on par with the S21 Ultra, making it one of the brightest displays on the market. The Mi 11 also has a 480hz touch sampling rate. This should make everything, especially games, feel more responsive. I honestly couldn't tell the difference between the 480hz on the Mi 11 and the 240hz on phones like the S21 Ultra, OnePlus 8 Pro, or OPPO Find X3 Pro.
The build quality on the device is pretty good. The chassis is fully glass and aluminum—no plastic frame like the OnePlus 9. The Mi 11 feels about as premium as most flagship phones, but still not as solid as something like the Galaxy S21 Ultra or iPhone 12 Pro.
