Today, we will be talking about features of Mi 11X Pro, OnePlus 9R and iPhone 11 to let our audiences know which phone will be the best choice for them. Let us begin with comparing the design of all the three phones.
All the three phones have beautiful designs and look attractive. However, the OnePlus 9R looks stunning in the Lake Blue colour. Mi 11X Pro is the heaviest when we consider its weight but the weight distribution makes it feel lighter when held in the hand. We can say that OnePlus and Mi have done commendable job when it comes to weight distribution as compared to Apple.
Mi 11X Pro and OnePlus 9R both do not come with an IP rating or water resistance but Apple iPhone 11 comes with an IP68 rating. Apple iPhone 11 and OnePlus 9R both come with a front and back glass panel. On the other hand, Mi 11X Pro has an Anti-Glare glass panel. There are no fingerprint smudging issues with any of the three phones. OnePlus 9R and Mi 11X Pro both come with a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. Apple does not disclose which Corning Gorilla Glass has been equipped in the iPhone 11.
In terms of display, Mi 11X Pro has a 6.67 inches screen, OnePlus 9R comes with a 6.55 inches screen and iPhone 11 provides a 6.1 inches screen. Apple iPhone 11 has an IPS LCD screen whereas OnePlus 9R and Mi 11X Pro both provide an AMOLED screen. However, we can conclude that Apple iPhone’s IPS LCD display is no less than OnePlus 9R and Mi 11X Pro’s displays. MI 11X Pro has the brightest display whereas OnePlus 9R and iPhone 11 both have great pixel density.
The minor difference in all three displays is that Mi 11X Pro and OnePlus 9R provide a 120Hz refresh rate whereas iPhone 11 comes with 60Hz refresh rate. Mi 11X Pro and OnePlus 9R both come with a punch-hole camera but Apple iPhone 11 has no changes and continues to maintain its notch camera on the top.When we talk about haptic feedback and touch sensitivity, all the three phones are pretty smooth. However, you will notice that Apple iPhone 11 and OnePlus 9R are a little better than Mi 11X Pro when it comes to touch, scrolling, typing,etc.
When we consider the battery, Mi 11X Pro and OnePlus 9R both come with approximately 4,500mAh batteries which is almost similar in both the phones. On the other hand, iPhone 11 comes with a 3,100mAh battery. When we consider the screen on time, the award definitely goes to OnePlus 9R which gives a stellar performance of 7.5 hours. While on the other side, Mi 11X Pro and iPhone 11 both offer a screen on time of 5-6 hours.
When it comes to charging, OnePlus 9R still remains the winner as its 65W fast charging support charges the phone up to 100% in just 55 minutes. Mi 11X Pro takes around 1 hour 45 minutes to fully charge whereas Apple iPhone 11 charges fully in 3 hours with 5W fast charging and if you want to charge it faster, you can use the 18W charger which will charge the phone up to 100% in 1.5 hours. However, an 18W adapter is a bit expensive and you will have to shell out a few bucks for the same. Apple iPhone 11 supports wireless charging whereas OnePlus 9R and Mi 11X Pro do not support wireless charging.
Operating System (OS)
When we compare OnePlus 9R’s OxygenOS and Apple iPhone 11’s iOS, there is absolutely nothing to complain about as both are very smooth operating systems and offer a decent user experience. On the other hand, when we compare OnePlus 9R’s OxygenOS and Mi 11X Pro’s MIUI, MIUI’s bloatware may create a disturbance for the users with its unnecessary ads and notifications.
When we looked at the GeekBench codes, Mi 11X Pro has the highest codes but Apple iPhone 11and OnePlus 9R aren’t far behind too. Mi 11X Pro has the highest multi-core scores whereas iPhone 11 gave out the best single-core scores. When we actually implemented these scores while using the phone, the OnePlus 9R heated up a bit while 4K recording, heavy gaming video calls and other apps like Google Meet were being used.
On the other hand, Mi 11X Pro did not heat up at all. This can be observed because OnePlus 9R has a Snapdragon 870 SoC whereas Mi 11X Pro comes with the Snapdragon 888 chipset. Apple iPhone 11 gives an unbeatable experience when it comes to gaming and even day-to-day tasks.
Apple iPhone 11 comes with face ID and PIN unlock and the Face ID would not unlock the phone with a mask on. OnePlus 9R and Mi 11X Pro both provide a lot of security options like Face ID, Pin/ Pattern Unlock and Fingerprint Sensor. However, OnePlus 9R provides an in-display fingerprint sensor whereas Mi 11X Pro comes with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor on the power button.
Connectivity and Audio
OnePlus 9R and MI 11X Pro both come with 5G support where OnePlus 9R will support the N78 band and Mi 11X Pro will support N77 and N78 both bands whenever 5G gets introduced in India. Apple iPhone 11 does not support 5G. Moving forward to Audio, all the three phones have decent loudspeaker quality. All the three phones have dual stereo speakers and iPhone 11 has a good audio recording when compared to other two phones. Mi 11X Pro introduces the audio zoom feature which is unique and new for most of the smartphone users.
Mi 11X Pro has a triple-camera setup, Apple iPhone 11 has a dual-camera setup and OnePlus 9R comes with a quad-camera setup. However, when we compare the quality of images clicked on these phones, Apple iPhone 11 gives out the most natural tones. On the other hand, OnePlus 9R is higher on the blue tones and at the same time Mi 11X Pro has lighter blues.
When we look at the photography perspective, iPhone 11 provides a dynamic range and Mi 11X Pro isn’t far behind as well but OnePlus 9R fails to impress the audiences. Overall, when we talk about pictures, iPhone 11 gives the best photographs in terms of clarity, natural colour and dynamic range. OnePlus 9R results in clear and sharp images but it’s not great in getting the colours right. Mi 11X Pro gives out great colours as well but needs improvements in the areas of resolution. We can rank the Apple iPhone 11 as first, OnePlus 9R as second and Mi 11X Pro as third in terms of camera.
When we talk about video recording, OnePlus 9R and iPhone 11 come with 4K video recording whereas Mi 11X Pro has an 8K video recording alternative. OnePlus 9R and iPhone 11 both support background blur effects for videos. Video stabilisation is the best in Apple iPhone 11 whereas Mi 11X Pro and OnePlus 9R’s video stabilisation is almost similar.
