The new version of the Xiaomi 11 Lite is presented in a white box with an 11 in gold letters with the version and color chosen at the bottom, in this case, 6+128GB and in blue.

Inside comes the phone, silicone case, 33W charger, USB-C cable, headphone adapter, SIM tool, and manuals.

One of the points that makes this phone “different” is its design, you can’t imagine how nice it is to carry a phone weighing less than 160g… it’s a joy!

This Xiaomi 11 Lite definitely surprises in all aspects: exaggeratedly light with a good size and a matte glass finish on the back and a metallic plastic frame that give it a premium look.

A little more in detail, we find a front with a very well used screen and fine symmetrical frames, with the camera in a hole in the upper left corner, and without notification LED.

On the right we have the volume control buttons and the power button, which at the same time acts as a fingerprint reader.
In the upper part we have the secondary speaker and infrared sensor, in the lower part the slot for the sim, usb-c port and main speaker and on the back we have the characteristic camera module of the 11 series, next to the Xiaomi logo and the description 5G.

“What do you think of his design? In my opinion it is one of Xiaomi’s great successes this year, not only is it one of the lightest phones today, it is also one of the most “premium” in the mid-range, so not bad! I personally give it an A+.”

These have been the data of the Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G but the important thing is how it behaves on a day-to-day basis and, in this section, there are several things to comment on:


During these 10 days of use, power has not been lacking at any time, the Snapdragon 778G is a very solvent processor, and although it does not reach the results of phones such as the POCO F3 or the Realme GT 2 NEO.

With it we have a good browsing experience through the system, with scrolling and fast scrolling. The same happens in social networks or viewing multimedia content.
The opening of applications is also very fast, and with it we will be able to play practically any game with a very good experience.

The experience has been very good with its two main cameras, which respond well in all conditions with clear photos, a fairly decent dynamic range, a very good portrait mode and a night mode that illuminates and “creates” very colorful photographs, although with noticeable noise in more complicated situations.

As for the wide angle and the macro, they are just decent, they don’t do a bad job but I wouldn’t highlight what they can offer either.

As for the video, the experience has been quite good in good light conditions and recording at 30 FPS. At 60fps the experience has not been so positive, we have a very poorly stabilized image and we can only record in FHD.

TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT… This Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE does not have a proximity sensor, this means that on specific occasions the phone does not recognize that we have it to our ear to make a call or listen to a voice note, turning on its screen and therefore both causing small errors. It doesn’t happen too much, but you have to take it into account.

“The 11 lite 5G NE is one of the most recommended mid-range phones this year, which is capable of fulfilling practically all sections, also offering a commitment to design that no one else offers. It is not a perfect phone, its battery can be a problem for the most demanding users. It is currently for €299, not bad!”
-Manu, Gruporeviews.

So far the review of the new Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE, yet another version of the Xiaomi 11 that bets on a balance between quality and price that few can offer. If it is true that we are not facing a revolution, this Lite 5G is a very good option for the mid-range.
