Redmi Note 11 SE smartphone has been recently launched in the Indian market, and it is really making a huge name for itself, because it is offering some high quality features at a very reasonable price. Is the Redmi Note 11 SE worth the hype? Or is it just another ordinary smartphone that does not fullfill its promises? Let us find out in this quick review that includes the major pros and cons of this smartphone.


Display & Design -One of the nicest aspects of the smartphone is the display quality. The 6.40-inch, 90Hz Super AMOLED display on the Redmi Note 11 SE has a maximum brightness of 1000 nits and a touch sampling rate of 180Hz. While the front is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3, the rear has plastic and the frame is made of plastic. The phone does support Widevine L1, thus you will be able to use OTT apps to view FHD+ content. The good news is that Redmi has been replaced with a 90Hz refresh rate, an improvement over the previous version.

Performance -The Mediatek Helio G95 processor is included with the Redmi Note 11 SE. It is accurate to claim that this CPU is one of the better options in this particular price range as a powerful 4G chipset. Additionally, the processor offers excellent gaming performance, the proper speed, and efficiency. The SoC is also equipped with a potent Mali GPU for outstanding graphics.

Camera — The Redmi Note 11 SE includes a 13MP selfie camera on the front and a 64MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, a 2MP macro sensor, and a 2MP depth sensor on the back. The front camera can capture videos up to 1080p@30fps while the back can capture footage in 4K resolution. Under ideal lighting conditions, the 64MP primary sensor produces some high-quality images. The 8MP ultra-wide lens is respectable and produces quality shots.

Battery — A 5,000 mAh battery with 33W fast charging capabilities powers the Redmi Note 11 SE. The 33W charger will charge from 0% to 100% in roughly 60 minutes. Overall, the processor should allow the battery to survive longer than a day, but ultimately, how you use your smartphone each day will determine how long it will last.


Audio Quality — While the display quality is amazing, the audio quality could most certainly have been better. Both the loudness levels and the clarity levels are a little less.

No Charger — Another problem with the smartphone is that it does not have a charger.

Looking at all its pros and cons, I feel that Redmi Note 11 SE is worth buying because it has a 90Hz Super AMOLED display, superfast 33W charging support, solid battery life, and even decent cameras, overall, it’s a good smartphone. What do you think?
