Comparing the Xiaomi Mi 11 vs the Samsung Galaxy S21, two of the biggest smartphones of 2021, but which is best? Here's a side-by-side testing the camera tech, speed, battery life, specs and features - and my full reviews are live right now.
The Xiaomi Mi 11 has just launched globally, while Samsung's new Galaxy S21 hit the UK a couple weeks earlier for a slightly higher price. Both sport a triple lens rear camera and here you can see how they compare for photo and video quality, including a zoom test, night results and more.
Grab Xiaomi's phone from here, and UK peeps can use the code SPURTMI11 to get some cash off:

For performance, the Mi 11 uses Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888 chipset while the Galaxy S21 goes for Samsung's own Exynos 2100 platform. Xiaomi's handset wins the speed test and offers smoother gaming, while the battery life is also better (helped along by the bigger cell).
Overall the specs are stronger on the Xiaomi Mi 11, vs the S21. You get a QHD+ display, compared with the FHD on Samsung's smartphone. Still, both handsets are strong on the media front, among the best you can buy in 2021. My full review of both phones are live, and you can see my unboxing of that Galaxy plus comparisons versus the Pixel 5 and S20 FE.

They cost about the same, but there's a world of difference between the pleasingly compact S21 and the beefcake Mi 11. Which one's your favourite, definitely hit me up below 😘

@Subham Kumarwhat are you talking about? it happens all the time. Companies release a phone without throttling to get a good geekbench score then add throttling with an update to correct thermals.

It is much more user friendly, but knowing that there is a difference between SD and Exynos, it's killing a deal-breaker. I found out only after buying my S10+ Exynos version 😕

@LeboTheBaker I`ve had my mi Mi 11 for a week now,and it`s an amazing piece of smartphone! I use it A LOT,and i have not been bothered with burning my hands :-D I almost bought a Samsung,but the s21 Ultra is almost twice the prize of the Mi 11 here,so for me it was not hard to choose.Coming from the Mi 9 the software was familiar but updated of course.And the scree,its amazing!

There is a company in Sweden called PiezoMotor Uppsala that will take smartphones to a completely different level when it comes to camera functions. So my advice is to wait a little while with both of these mobiles

I don't understand why people talk about privacy on smartphones, none of them have any privacy from iPhone to Samsung every single smartphone out there have backdoors or trackers that we're not aware of. If you're gonna buy a a smartphone buy it because you like the way it works, period.

I dislike Samsung phones. An unusual personal choice I know. But having used a great Huawei P30 Pro for the past 2 years, I'm holding out to compare the Mi11 Pro with the OnePlus 9 Pro. I use the telephoto lens quite often so struggling to find a non Samsung future proof flagship with a Huawei beating camera.

Isn't Samsung's flagship phone s21 Ultra? Craftmanship differs the prices everytime, 1/2 price won't get me interested in the competitor over samsung. Agree with exynos lower performance but they need to keep using/making the chipsets until they beat snapds.
Marko Max
Marko Max 个月 前
So in short straight to the point Samsung has better display quality (color reproduction sharpness despite lower res screen), has better software than Xiaomi, has better camera overall (zoom shots, color precision, saturation levels), Samsung has a bit weaker loudness level on stereo speakers but better balance than Xiaomi (honestly it is a tie), on the other hand Xiaomi has better battery capacity, higher battery charging support (both wireless and wire charging) AND HAS FAST CHARGER INCLUDED (SAMSUNG SHAME ON YOU), louder speakers, much better chipset performance, I call this a "tie", it is all up to you, what you mostly preffer (better camera capabilities, reliable and fast software, or better spec overall, and better performance)...
