The Mi 11 Ultra we received was clearly an early engineering sample that had been flashed with the India-based MIUI12 ROM. This, unfortunately, led to a number of problems such as performance hits due to the Snapdragon 888 thermal throttling excessively, the display calibration being very unreliable and even the phone's best feature; its cameras, suffering from a laggy user interface. We're fairly confident that these issues won't present themselves in retail units, and if that truly ends up being the case, then the Mi 11 Ultra becomes a rock-solid alternative to the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, at just 60 per cent of the price. If you're wondering if you should get the Mi 11 Ultra or the OnePlus 9 Pro, then you'd be better off with the former as long as you can live with MIUI12. Even though our unit was faulty, the camera output was definitely impressive from all three cameras, especially the telephoto lens, which was usable even in low-light without having to switch over to the primary camera. It offers decent battery life which is aided by super fast 67W wired and wireless charging. Overall, the Mi 11 Ultra definitely feels like a flagship champ from Xiaomi.Read Full Review
