Redmi has consistently brought some of the best phones into the market and is one of the few brands to do so continuously. Their latest offering, Redmi Note 11 Pro plus 5G is The latest and greatest to this lineup. But the mobile market has changed a lot from when the company first took the country by storm. Can it compete with the likes of Realme 9 Pro and Moto G71 to be the Best Budget phone in India? Read more to Find out.
Redmi Note 11 Pro plus 5G – Overview
Redmi Note 11 Pro + 5G is the latest mobile phone from Redmi, Xiaomi’s spinout for the budget market. But the Phone offers non-budget specs, build and design. For a price of about INR 20,000, The Phone has many Class-leading specs, as well as many features such as an IR blaster, 3.5 mm jack and NFC which makes it, even more, feature-rich than its competitors.
The phone starts at 18,999 including introductory and bank offers, for the 6/128 GB model, and goes up to 23,999 for the Highest end 8/256 GB version. it comes in three Colours. It packs a triple back camera system including a 108 MP Samsung GN2 sensor, and a 16MP selfie shooter . The Redmi Note 11 pro + also comes with a snapdragon 695 5G processor, 5000 mAh battery and 67W charging (you do still get the charger inside the box )
The best part about Redmi’s new offering is its display. It is an almost flagship display, with 120 HZ refresh, 1200 nits peak brightness, and full DCI-p3 coverage, that puts it on par with the displays used in Samsung galaxy s10 series mobile phones, and the only thing it lacks on the display department is the LTPO technology, and it is too much to ask for. It can create solid vibrant colours, vivid images, and deep black, thanks to the AMOLED display. gaming or scrolling through apps will not be an issue, as the 120HZ refresh rate and 180HZ touch sampling will be there to take it to the next level.
This is not the first time that redmi packs a 108MP camera module into their budget phones, But the images are getting better and better each time. and if the trend continues, this might produce the best images among the mobile phones below 25K, and given how redmi improves the battery backup with updates, it might also gett better. the selfie cam is also a standard 16Mp, much like the redmi note 10 pro max, and will also deliver a imiliar performance to the now generation old phone.
The Phone is equipped with an octa-core snapdragon 695 with Adreno 619 GPU. Perhaps, the only shortcoming of this mobile phone would be its processor. To be clear, this phone is not a sloth, it is fast enough for Most People, and will deliver a fluid and smooth experience across games, social media apps and media consumption. and most of the other phones in the market come with SD 695 too, like the realme 9 series, Moto G71, Poco m5 pro etc. But it cannot compete with the dimensity 900 or Snapdragon 778G, especially on the graphics, which are offered for very similar prices, starting from 24K.
The phone comes with MIUI 13 out of the Box. while MIUI is not known to be the smoothest of OEM skins for android. It s=certainly is a complete OS with a large r of features, customisations and optimisations. and as Redmi mobiles get upto 4 MIUI (2 android) updates, we can expect the phone to get upto MIUI 17 on android 15. There will be some bloatware for sure, but with a few minutes worth of work, we cn uninstall, disable most of thee features, so it will not be a problem.
the phone is available in 3 variants, 6/128, 8/128 and 8/256. The 6/128variant will be the best option for a majority of the people. it is UFS 2.2, which is almosst as fast as a UFS 3.0 in various scenarioes. This also means that the phoen will benefit additionally from the Extended ram feature provided by MIUI.

The Redmi Note 11 Pro, is INR 1500 cheaper across the board, and packs in an helio G96 processor (4G). Most of the remaining Specifications are the same, so if you don’t fancy 5G, it might be better if your budget is low.
