Design

The most stunning design is the one of the Xiaomi Mi 11, in my honest opinion. Those curved edges and the original camera module make the difference. But if you take the leather variant of the Realme GT, you will see a device that is as beautiful as the standard Mi 11. However, the Xiaomi Mi 11 comes in a leather variant as well. The design is not the strongest point of the Redmi K40 Pro, but it has the IP53 certification, so it is protected from splashes and dust.

Display

There is no challenge: the Xiaomi Mi 11 is the display champion here. First of all, it is the only one with a Quad HD+ resolution, so it provides a higher level of detail and image clarity. Further, it is able to show up to one billion colors and it has a higher 1500 nit peak brightness. The phone also comes with a 120 Hz refresh rate, the HDR10+ certification, and a wide 6.81-inch diagonal. Right after, we got the Redmi K40 Pro featuring a 6.67-inch display with a Full HD+ resolution, a 120 Hz refresh rate, and HDR10+, as well as a high 1300 nit peak brightness.

Hardware/Software

All of these phones are powered by the Snapdragon 888 mobile platform which provides flagship-class performance levels. What changes are the memory configurations: with the Redmi K40 Pro, you do not get more than 8 GB of RAM, while Xiaomi Mi 11 and Realme GT 5G provide up to 12 GB of RAM. The software is exactly the same on Mi 11 and Redmi K40 Pro (MIUI), while you get a different user interface with the Realme GT 5G (Realme UI 2.0 based on Android 11).

Camera

Despite it is not a flagship camera phone, the Xiaomi Mi 11 also provides a better main camera: it is a 108 MP sensor with OIS. Redmi K40 Pro and Realme GT have an inferior 64 MP main camera and they lack OIS, so they can not be considered high-end camera phones, unlike the Mi 11.

Battery

There should not be huge differences between the battery life of these three devices, given the similar battery capacities and components. Xiaomi Mi 11 should have a higher consumption due to its bigger display with a higher resolution. On the other hand, it is the only one with wireless charging and we are talking about very fast 50W wireless charging. But the Realme GT is the fastest charging phone with its 65W SuperDart charging technology.

Xiaomi Mi 11 vs Realme GT vs Xiaomi Redmi K40 Pro: Price

Realme GT 5G is priced at less than €360/$424 and Redmi K40 Pro costs more or less €259/$305 in China, while you need about €517/$600 for the Xiaomi Mi 11. While the Mi 11 is the best phone in this comparison, the Realme GT 5G provides the highest value for money: I prefer it to the Redmi K40 Pro due to its faster charging technology, but if you do not care about it, the Redmi K40 Pro can let you save even more money.
