Xiaomi's Mi 11 Lite seems to be one of the best camera smartphones in the mid-premium price segment or, at least the new DxOMark score suggests so. The recently launched Mi 11 Lite received a total score of 111 and has tied with the Google Pixel 4a. Both these smartphones sit on top of the "Advanced" price segment. It's worth mentioning here that the score has been given to the 5G variant of the Mi 11 Lite which is yet to be launched in India.
The 5G variant of Mi 11 Lite is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 780 processor and costs 399 Euros in the global market. Xiaomi has only launched the 4G variant in India and had priced it quite aggressively at Rs 21,999. It had said that the 5G variant of the phone will be launched later if the demand picks up.
Mi 11 Lite still sits in the middle of the DxOMark chart which is topped by Xiaomi's own flagship Mi 11 Ultra. The DxOMark testing revealed that Mi 11 Lite did well in video performance, with its good color rendition and effective image stabilization. It received a high score for still images because of a pleasing color reproduction. The camera was able to control noise but autofocus could have been better.
The testing by DxOMark further discovered that the Mi 11 Lite 5G wasn't particularly good when it came to producing night-time shots or keeping details when zooming in on a subject.
To recall, the smartphone comes with a triple rear camera setup which includes a 64-megapixel main sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle lens, and a 5-megapixel macro sensor. There is also a 20-megapixel lens at the front on the 5G variant while the 4G variant gets a 16-megapixel lens.
