The Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G makes an interesting proposition, especially with the price tag it carries. It is one of the more affordable 5G phones in the market that comes with a few rare treats like a bright 120Hz screen. It also retains some fan favorites, like a microSD card slot and a 3.5mm headphone jack, while its battery life is something more expensive phones can only dream of.
Unfortunately, that otherwise tempting offer is marred by a few finer details that might give prospective buyers pause for thought. While the performance of the Snapdragon 695 5G isn't abysmal, we've also seen some better in this tier.
Camera performance is decent but lackluster, and the 1080p30 limitation is almost unforgivable. If you're not in the market for a 5G phone or aren't that particular about screen refresh rates, you might as well grab the more affordable Redmi Note 11S — though the latter model offers less, it doesn't overpromise and underdeliver.
The Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G has a starting price of $329 in the US, which gets buyers the 6GB/64GB memory and storage configuration. The price goes up slightly at $349 for the 6GB/128GB option and $379 for the 8GB/128GB configuration, but both options remain highly affordable compared to higher-end phones.
