Review of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G - Almost too good for a Lite smartphone·2021-05-19 14:00

Even though the 20-MP front-facing camera has trouble with the Bokeh effect and sharpness, it still produces decent selfies under good lighting conditions. Both the colour reproduction and the exposure are quite good for a mid-range smartphone.The main shooter, which is located in a square camera module on the back, features a 64-MP image sensor from Samsung (GW3). Under good lighting conditions, it produces sharp images with slightly oversaturated colours. The main camera produces colour-accurate photographs under controlled lighting conditions. The white balance is off in our photographs of the ColorChecker Passport, though. Enabling AI image optimisation significantly improves the white balance. The 64-MP shooter with an f/1.79 aperture produces rather blurry pictures. However, with steady hands, you can take sharp pictures even without optical image stabilisation. Under poor lighting conditions, the Mi 11 Lite 5G does not produce good images. Because the Xiaomi smartphone does not have a telephoto lens, it has to rely on digital zoom, which is why it produces very poor photographs when using zoom. The 8-MP ultra wide-angle lens has a very wide 119° field of view. Pictures taken with this camera look very good. However, images are marred by processing artefacts and excessive blurriness, especially in the corners. Under low-light conditions, the ultra wide-angle camera takes very poor pictures. Videos recorded with the Mi 11 Lite 5G do not look very impressive. The video stabilisation can be described as decent. However, the overall video quality is quite poor. The main camera can record 4K video at 30 FPS. The front-facing shooter and the ultra wide-angle lens can only shoot 1080p video, though. Users cannot switch between cameras while recording.
