Just like choosing someone to settle down with, picking out the right phone for YOU is personal. 

The device you choose becomes a pocket partner that’ll accompany you everywhere you go, for better or for worse. And as there are plenty of fish in the sea, reeling in the perfect companion can be tricky.

Some might be too complicated to deal with, others may just slow you down, and no one wants to have an expensive gold digger around.

So today, we’re checking out Xiaomi’s latest lineup of “budget” Redmi Note 11 series smartphones that are contending to be a catch in the midrange market.

For starters, each of the four different models of the Redmi Note 11 series: the Redmi Note 11, Redmi Note 11S, Redmi Note 11 Pro and the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G, has its own quirks which set each apart from one another.

But to keep things from becoming too complicated, let’s just focus on the things that matter the most and what they bring to the table.

A refreshing perspective

The perfect partner is always someone – or in this case, something – that provides you with a different point of view and a refreshing outlook on the things that are right in front of you.

Three of the Redmi Note 11 series phones: the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G, Redmi Note 11 Pro, and Redmi Note 11S feature solid cameras with a 108MP sensor slapped on to em’. Meanwhile, the basic Redmi Note 11 model has a 50MP sensor.

Those should be more than capable of capturing clear and colourful images even in dimly-lit conditions.

The Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G, Redmi Note 11 Pro and Redmi Note 11S also come with a 16MP pinhole selfie camera on the front.

The setup could promise users quality shots making it a great choice to have for those wide, ultrawide or extra close-up pictures and HD videos indoors or outdoors.

Besides looking stylish with its slim and sleek design that comes in three attractive colours, the Redmi Note 11 series 6.67in or 6.43in AMOLED displays feature a high refresh and touch sampling rate.

Able to go as high as 120Hz and 360Hz respectively, the screen configurations mean that users can enjoy a smoother, lag-free experience while endlessly scrolling through the phones, and have more precise controls on their touch inputs when tapping on the devices while gaming or even editing content.

Pair that with the Redmi Note 11 series dual, top and bottom stereo speakers, the setup appears to be a decent choice for a crisp and clear audiovisual experience whether you’re streaming videos online or swiping right on those dating apps at any time of day.

Positive energy

Having a partner on the same wavelength that matches your own energy, intensity and interests are definitely crucial to avoid leaving you drained and dragged down.

Although in line to be this season’s “midrange kings”, the Redmi Note 11 series does come close to and can stand toe-to-toe with the more pricey “flagship” phones out there.

The Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G runs on a Snapdragon 695 octa-core processor. Meanwhile, the Redmi Note 11 Pro and Redmi Note 11S both rock MediaTek Helio G96 octa-core processors and carry up to 8GB of RAM.

This means that any of these budget phones, including the basic Redmi Note 11 model, are able to take pretty much everything you throw at it without being overwhelmed, slowing down or sucking the life out of the batteries.

All four Redmi Note 11 series models are powered up by a 5,000mAh battery, but the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G and Redmi Note 11 Pro does have a 67W turbocharging feature that can power them up from 0 – 50% in 15 minutes. Meanwhile, the Redmi Note 11S and Redmi Note 11’s 33W pro-fast charging capability can fully recharge the devices in as little as an hour.

The price & where to get one

The Redmi Note 11 series fits perfectly with the title of being the new midrange king in the market with a price set between RM799 to RM1,299 at official MI Stores.

But if you’re hoping to have a more up close and personal encounter with what might be your next pocket partner, make sure to stop by Xiaomi’s official roadshows happening at the Sunway Pyramid shopping complex in Klang Valley, the Queensbay Mall in Penang and AEON Tebrau City shopping centre in Johor from 23 – 27 February.

Purchase one of the midrange kings at the roadshows and stand a chance to take home limited gifts, vouchers and Xiaomi products worth up to RM457. But you need to be quick, gifts come in limited quantities and are only available on a first-come, first-serve basis while stocks last.

Meanwhile, other prizes and knickknacks are also available for those who participate in special on-ground events.

So why not drop by and see if the Redmi Note 11 series might be the perfect catch for you.
