Xiaomi just launched the Mi 11 in the global market, where it carries a very interesting price tag despite being the first handset with Snapdragon 888 inside. The listing price of the Mi 11 is actually closer to the street prices of the OPPO Find X2 Pro. The Find X2 Pro is actually a top-tier flagship but given that it was released one year ago, its price dropped at the same level as the Mi 11. But which one is worth buying right now? Mi 11 or OPPO Find X2 Pro? This comparison will clear your ideas in regards to this question and tell you the pro and cons of each of these flagships.

Xiaomi Mi 11 and OPPO Find X2 Pro are two devices with a premium design. I personally prefer the OPPO Find X2 Pro due to its materials: it comes in a ceramic variant which is the best-selling one and a leather variant. The Mi 11 has a leather version as well, but the “normal” edition is made with a classic glass back and an aluminum frame. Further, the OPPO Find X2 Pro is waterproof with the IP68 certification, while the Mi 11 does not offer any certification against water and dust. That is why the OPPO Find X2 Pro is a superior device in terms of build quality. Both feature an in-display fingerprint reader and a curved punch-hole display.
The displays of the Xiaomi Mi 11 and the OPPO Find X2 Pro are very close. Both are displays boasting a high Quad HD+ resolution and a high 120 Hz refresh rate, as well as the HDR10+ certification. And both are able to show up to one billion colors with their 10-bit panels. The Xiaomi Mi 11 has a higher peak brightness (up to 1500 nits), but the Find X2 Pro seems like the device with the best color accuracy. The Xiaomi Mi 11 has a slightly wider panel than the OPPO Find X2 Pro with its 6.81-inch diagonal.
Specs & Software
The king of hardware is the Xiaomi Mi 11 for a simple reason: it has a stronger chipset. We are talking about the Snapdragon 888 mobile platform, which is actually the best Qualcomm SoC for 2021. The OPPO Find X2 Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 865 mobile platform from 2019, built with an inferior production process (7 nm vs 5 nm) and with lower-end performance. But there is an important advantage with the OPPO Find X2 Pro: you get up to 512 GB of internal storage instead of the 256 GB offered by the Xiaomi Mi 11. On the other hand, the Mi 11 has a more recent Android version: Android 11, while the Find X2 Pro ships with Android 10 (already updated to Android 11 and ColorOS 11).
On the camera side, OPPO Find X2 Pro is the best and you should go for it without thinking twice. It has a triple camera with a 48 MP main sensor, a 13 MP periscope camera with 5x optical zoom, and a 48 MP ultrawide sensor. It even boasts laser autofocus and better optical stabilization. Unfortunately, the Xiaomi Mi 11 lacks optical zoom and it has an inferior ultrawide camera, that is the reason why it can not be considered a top camera phone. The OPPO Find X2 Pro beats the Xiaomi Mi 11 even when it comes to the front camera, with its 32 MP selfie snapper.
Due to its bigger 4600 mAh battery, the Xiaomi Mi 11 is able to provide a longer battery life in a lot of scenarios. The OPPO Find X2 Pro has a smaller 4260 mAh battery, but a higher charging power (65W). On the other hand, Xiaomi Mi 11 features wireless charging and reverse wireless charging, while Find X2 Pro does not.
Xiaomi Mi 11 debuted in the global market with a €749/$908 starting price. Thanks to online street prices, you can actually find the OPPO Find X2 Pro for less than €700/$849. Due to the IP68 certification and its better cameras, we consider the OPPO Find X2 Pro as a smarter purchase. The Xiaomi Mi 11 has a better hardware department, wireless charging, and even a bigger battery, but do you really need all the power of the Snapdragon 888 in a world in which mid-rangers can already do everything without issues? It brings definitely more value to have a top camera phone in your hands, if you need a great camera, naturally. If you do not need a top camera phone, then Mi 11 starts making more sense.
