The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite launched in the global market in two variants: Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite and Mi 11 Lite 5G. The latter is the first phone ever with the all-new Snapdragon 780G: the best Qualcomm’s offering for the mid-range segment. But the chipset is not everything on a phone and having such a great SoC does not necessarily make the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G the best midrange out there. For this comparison, we chose two of the best mid-rangers sold in the global market in order to establish if the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G is able to compete for the title of best mid-ranger of 2021: POCO X3 Pro and OPPO Find X3 Lite. Let’s discover who is better on the paper through a specs comparison.

The design of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G is very attractive because it has one of the thinnest and most lightweight bodies in the whole smartphone market. The OPPO Find X3 Lite is another incredibly thin phone and it is even more compact than Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G, but the Xiaomi’s mid-ranger is thinner and lighter. However, I personally prefer the OPPO Find X3 Lite due to its premium materials. The POCO X3 Pro is bigger, uglier, and thicker than both its rivals, so it loses the design comparison.
With the Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite, you get the most advanced display on paper. The AMOLED panel of this phone is able to show up to one billion colors, it supports the HDR10+ certification and it has a 90 Hz refresh rate. The OPPO Find X3 Lite comes right after with an AMOLED panel providing a very nice color reproduction, high brightness, and 90 Hz refresh rate. Unfortunately, with the POCO X3 Pro, you get an inferior IPS display with less brilliant colors, but you have a 120 Hz refresh rate. However, an IPS panel like this can not compete with the AMOLED displays of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G and the OPPO Find X3 Lite.
The most powerful hardware setup belongs to the POCO X3 Pro which packs the high-end Snapdragon 860 processor paired with up to 8 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of internal UFS 3.1 storage. However, the POCO X3 Pro is the only one of the trio to lack 5G connectivity. If you want the most powerful phone with 5G, then you should go for the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G powered by the Snapdragon 780G paired with up to 8 GB of RAM and UFS 2.2 internal storage. It has less impressive performance than a flagship killer like the POCO X3 Pro, but at least you get 5G. All the phones are based on Android 11.
The best camera phone of this trio is the OPPO Find X3 Lite. On the rear side, it has a quad camera including a 64 MP main sensor with bright f/1.7 focal aperture, an 8 MP ultrawide camera, and a pair of 2 MP sensors for macros and depth. Even the front camera is better with its 32 MP resolution. The silver medal goes to Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G sporting a 64 MP triple camera with the best macro sensor, as well as a 20 MP front camera.
The POCO X3 Pro packs the biggest battery (the capacity is 5160 mAh) and it provides the longest battery life. But with the OPPO Find X3 Lite, you get a faster charging technology with 65W power and the support of reverse charging.
The price of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G for the global market is €369/$435, OPPO Find X3 Lite costs €499/$589, and POCO X3 Pro costs €279/$329. The winner of the comparison for most of the users should be Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite due to its impressive display, good value for money, great chipset. But if the price of the OPPO Find X3 Lite drops, it may represent a better choice thanks to its faster charging technology, better cameras. Despite its huge battery and amazing hardware, the POCO X3 Pro loses due to the lack of an AMOLED display and a 5G modem. But its price is a lot more affordable.
