Flagship smartphones crossed to the an Rs 1,00,000 mark a long time ago and there seems no bar to the price. However, companies like OnePlus or Xiaomi do try to keep a check at the big players, by releasing flagship-grade smartphones like the Mi 11 Ultra at a much lower price point.

At Rs 69,999, the Mi 11 Ultra comes with everything the Rs 1,05,999 Galaxy S21 Ultra have to the offer and then some. But keep in mind, even though the spec sheet might seem better, but it does not guarantee real-life performance. That it is what we will be taking a look at below.

DESIGN Or BUILD

Most flagship smartphones these days, apart from the foldables are metal glass sandwiches. Xiaomi have been tried to break this monotonous look with the addition of a quad curved display or a secondary quick view display on the back.

For the front and the rear display, the company have been used Gorilla Glass Victus, which is the latest and most sturdy glass that Corning have been a offer as of now. Over that, the company has also used Ceramic to cast the back instead of glass, making the phone a bit more durable. This is a also provides us with a much more premium feel.

The back camera module on the Mi 11 Ultra have been one of the largest camera modules we has been to date. One of the reasons behind this is the secondary display, other reasons include two large 2-inch sensors, a 1.12-inch sensor and a 120x digital zoom telephoto setup.

The phone does feel quite bulky weighing in at 234 grams. Surprisingly, the phone, which I felt would be top-heavy due to the massive camera module, was not so. The device was the very balanced, with it is not tipping to either side when held. This level of detail is appreciated and welcomed.

I received the Ceramic Black variant for review, which looks nice, but it is extremely reflective and a fingerprint magnet. The Ceramic White variant would has been the fared much better.
