Mi 11 Lite Gaming Review: Design & Build Quality
The design, about which Mi 11 lite is the most talked about. As I told you that this is a very thin phone whose thickness is only 6.81mm which looks quite attractive to look at.
When I first took this phone in my hand, I thought that there can be no better phone than this.
But slowly I realized that I am not able to hold it properly. If you look at this phone carefully, then the width of this phone is slightly more than most of the phones.
And if you look at the corners of this phone, then you will find its corners a bit sharp, and this is the reason why holding it seems a bit difficult task.
If the corners of this phone were slightly rounded then it could have been easily held.
Apart from this, if we talk about its back, then its back is made of glass along with matte finish, which gives it a better and attractive look.
Overall, I did not find any shortage in its material, if you also look at the price, then you can consider it much better.
Some of the ports you will find on the bottom side of Mi 11 lite are as follows –
- Sim card tray
- Type-C port
- Speaker grill
Whereas on the right side of the phone you have been given the power on / off button which also acts as a fingerprint scanner as well as the volume buttons are also there.
On the top side of the Mi 11 lite, you can see the IR blaster and noise canceling microphone.
So these were some of the design and build quality details of the Mi 11 lite that I noticed while using it.

Mi 11 Lite Gaming Review: Mi 11 Lite BGMI Test
If we first talk about the graphics settings of BGMI in Mi 11 lite, then we get maximum (HD + high) settings.
First thing first, we will play TDM on (smooth + ultra) settings in which we will also check its Gyroscope after which gaming test will be done in its high settings also.
First of all, if we talk about Gyroscope, then I have set full sensitivity and I do not see any kind of delay in its Gyroscope which is quite a good thing.
Overall, I played a few TDM matches and I didn’t see any frame drops or lags in it.
During classic matches, we got to see frame drops which are a bit annoying.
When you jump off the plane, the first thing you see is frame drops, and if you land in a place like bootcamp where there are a lot of players landing, you’ll see a lot of frame drops.
Apart from this, whenever you take a fight with a player during gaming, then you also get to see frame drops.
I tested the Mi 11 lite even in the maximum setting (HD + high) by gaming and I got to see better performance in it.
Overall, the Mi 11 lite gaming review concludes regarding the graphics that we get to see better performance in the max setting (HD + high).

Mi 11 Lite Gaming Review: Battery Drain Test
As you might know, the Mi 11 Lite packs a 4250 mAh battery which I found much better considering its size. Because it has often been seen that when a company makes a thin and lightweight phone, it uses a very small battery in it.
But the Mi 11 lite is just the opposite. Large battery has been used in this, although you will not get the support of ultra fast charging in it, but it supports 33W fast charging and you can easily take out the whole day in single charge.
The things that have been done for better gaming testing in Mi 11 lite are as follows –
- Full brightness
- Full speaker sound
- Background screen recording
With all these tasks, I did a gaming review of Mi 11 lite and it took about 3 hours 40 minutes to come from 100% to 5%.
As per the 4250 mAh battery, you have got a battery backup of about 4 hours while gaming at full brightness, which is really amazing.
You can easily assume 5 hours of battery backup for gaming as I had turned on full brightness and screen recording.
In short, the Mi 11 lite gives very good performance in terms of battery.
