Mi 11 Lite first look (in pictures): how it compares to Redmi Note 10 Pro and OnePlus Nord CE 5G

While it’s remarkable how Xiaomi has managed to squeeze so much technology inside the Mi 11 Lite despite its slim and light profile, the software, and by extension the user experience on this phone, is perhaps its weakest link. While it might not show you ads like the Redmi Note 10 Pro, it’s surprising that a supposedly more premium phone like this is launching with MIUI 12 out of the box. MIUI 12.5 is coming soon, much like most of its phones in India. There is no clarity. No word. The Redmi Note 10 Pro is one of the very few phones in India to have received MIUI 12.5 which allows you, in addition to speeding up performance, removing duplicate and unwanted apps, reading bloatware for which all phones Xiaomi are infamous. Although, to be clear, this holds true for a lot of phones these days. For a phone like the Mi 11 Lite which is marketed as a lifestyle product, the software mess and lack of clarity about updates doesn’t paint a pretty picture. The form is good, but without function, everything is just fluff. Speaking of experience, not only does the Mi 11 Lite lack a headphone jack, but it also lacks dedicated haptics. It does, however, have two speakers with Hi-Res support. The Redmi Note 10 Pro has two speakers, a headphone jack, and Z-axis haptics. OnePlus’ main selling point remains its clean and pure OxygenOS software, although to tell the truth, it is also showing signs of aging. It has a mono speaker and no headphone jack.
