System Performance

System performance of the Mi 11 should be great given the new Snapdragon 888 SoC as well as the 120Hz screen. Of course, between different device vendors we can see slightly different variations as each company tunes their software stack different, so it’ll be interesting to see how Xiaomi fares compared to what we’ve seen in the S21 series devices.

PCMark Work 2.0 - Web Browsing 2.0

In the web, test the Mi 11 fares excellent and keeps up with the best performing devices in the market, signalling that the SoC is tuned quite aggressively in lighter workloads.

PCMark Work 2.0 - Writing 2.0

In the writing sub-test however, we’re seeing that there are more differences in the stack and the device doesn’t differentiate itself too much from most other Snapdragon 865 devices last year, trailing the new S21 phones.

PCMark Work 2.0 - Photo Editing 2.0

The photo editing score is in line with the S21 Ultra and its Snapdragon 888, both posting almost identical scores, which are a bit lower than that of S865 devices.

PCMark Work 2.0 - Data Manipulation

The data manipulation score is single-thread bound and the Mi 11 also comes in as one of the top-performing devices, even though there’s small variations.

PCMark Work 2.0 - Performance

In the overall performance score in PCMark, the Mi 11 ends up with a great result.

Speedometer 2.0 - OS WebView JetStream 2 - OS Webview

In the sustained Javascript browser benchmarks, the Mi 11 lands equal to the Snapdragon 888 S21 Ultra, although for some reason not in the JetStream 2 test.

WebXPRT 3 - OS WebView

Finally in WebXprt 3 which is more sensitive to performance latency (how fast a CPU ramps up), the Mi 11 takes the lead amongst all other Android device, albeit only by a small margin.

Overall performance of the Mi 11 is excellent and is clearly a 2021 flagship device. The Snapdragon 888 SoC along with the 120Hz screen signify that you’ll have amongst the best performing devices in the market, there’s really not much more to add to that.

    What a well thought out reply. Thanks.

    I still use galaxy s9 as my current phone.
    Curved edge screen sucks.
    It also less durable.
    My screen replacement also costed ~$100 more than flat s10e

    Preach, brother.

    Curved edges: Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.

    Curved edge means more likely to break if dropped
  • ballsystemlord - Wednesday, March 10, 2021 - link

    Shouldn't it be less likely because of the force vectors involved?
  • RSAUser - Thursday, March 11, 2021 - link

    No due to how the glass is folded, force distribution is worse. Also getting cases that work well is more difficult.

    In theory, but the main problem is the total inability to fit a full-coverage screen protector.

    X-T30 83mm photo seems to give a 404 on the first pic in the HDR section (green bike)

    Is Mi 11 using it LTPO OLED?
