Xiaomi took the wraps off the flagship Mi 11 for the global market a few days back. The sole Mi flagship has now made an early appearance on JerryRigEverything’s durability test. The test gives us a hint as to the structural strength which the flagship possesses. Sure the Mi 11 looks good on paper and going by reviews, including ours, it sure looks incredibly good in real life.
The durability test, as usual, includes the scratch, burn and bend tests, all aimed at testing the physical strength of the display and entire fuselage. It begins with the scratch test and the phone scratches at level 6 with deeper grooves at level 7, thanks to the Gorilla Glass Victus slapped on top of the display. The sides of the phones are also made of metal and not plastic as noted on the scratch test. Also, the back panel is made from glass since the phone supports wireless charging. The panel scratches at the same level as the front screen even though it is covered by a layer of Gorilla Glass 5 instead of Victus.
The Mi 11’s 6.81-inch FHD+ OLED display is really quick at sensing the finger due to the 480Hz touch sampling rate. It also has o ther impressive features such as a 120Hz refresh rate. The display panel only withstood 20 seconds of heat from Zack’s lighter in the burn test before the display got a white patch and didn’t fully recover afterward.
The smartphone also doesn’t disappoint on the bend test. Even though it produces a minor creak when bent, the phone didn’t crack or become permanently deformed.
Overall, the Mi 11 is a pretty solid smartphone in addition to an impressive specs lineup and decent price tag. Check out our Mi 11 review video from below.
