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.

    Deffo not, only like the s21 ultra is. If it was, it would have adaptive sync

    Does MIUI support 10 Bit SDR with Adobe RGB display?

    I hope anandtech can test bt2020 / adobe rgb / DCI-P3 color gamut of smartphones.

    You don't need AdobeRGB on phones, DCI-P3 is better since it's more geared towards content consumption like videos

    All much of a muchness now. It's all down to nitpicking really.

    No 18 GB RAM option!

    Not available in the US. This is obviously some uncommon use of the word "globally" of which I wasn't previously aware.

    Hey, you're the one that voted for MAGA. The result is that even the Nazis in Great Britain have it better than you.

    You have no idea the bubble you live in.

    In most European countries, Bernie Sanders is right wing. Even in the UK he'd be a centrist, at best.

    Hey! That sort of language is unacceptable, and preposterously untrue. There are no "Nazis" here, and if that's a snide side-swipe at Brexit it's not even relevant - people voted here on far more complex sovereignty issues than intolerance of foreigners. Thoughtless insults like that are extremely offensive to citizens of a country that fought real fascists in WW2.
