About DXOMARK Display tests: For scoring and analysis in our smartphone and other display reviews, DXOMARK engineers perform a variety of objective and perceptual tests under controlled lab and real-life conditions. This article highlights the most important results of our testing. Note that we evaluate display attributes using only the device’s built-in display hardware and its still image (gallery) and video apps at their default settings. (For in-depth information about how we evaluate smartphone and other displays, check out our articles, “How DXOMARK tests display quality” and “A closer look at DXOMARK Display testing.”)
- Faithful colors in most lighting conditions
- Good brightness management in low light and low flicker
- Smooth touch interactions and absence of frame drops when gaming
- Altered image rendering and lack of details under direct sunlight
- Low details in dark tones and a green cast on some HDR10 content
- Occasional ghost touches, especially in corners
The Xiaomi 11T Pro showed many strengths in DXOMARK Display testing, providing good readability and reducing eye strain thanks to good brightness management and a high flicker frequency (the higher the frequency, the less noticeable the flicker). Colors are very accurate in most viewing conditions, and motion is smooth when gaming. On the downside, image rendering looks unnatural and detail is lost in bright sunlight, so images and videos are best viewed indoors or any other less extreme conditions.
The Xiaomi 11T Pro is comfortable for reading in a low-light environment and when the blue light filter is on. But it lacks detail and brightness in indoor conditions. Outdoors, the brightness has been measured over an impressive 1000 nits, but an awkward picture rendering deteriorates the experience under sunlight, as shown in the sample illustration below.
The scatter chart on the right shows the Xiaomi device’s strong shift toward green when holding it at different angles.
The Xiaomi 11T Pro’s video brightness is well adapted for watching HDR10 content, in comparison the other devices are all a bit dim which can be disturbing in such low light environment. On the other hand, the Xiaomi 11T Pro contrast is somewhat low on mid-tones and details are missing in dark content. The device also has a bit of a green cast that is noticeable on skin tones.
The Xiaomi 11T Pro device shows many frame drops at 30 fps, as shown below, but surprisingly only a few stutters at 60 fps; however, no frame drops are visible when playing games. When played back, the 11T Pro pauses before resuming on some of the tested videos.
While gaming, corners are touch-responsive and the device is fairly accurate. The device could be smoother when browsing, however, and a few frame duplications are visible when swiping in the gallery app.
The Xiaomi 11T Pro is the best device in our database in terms of screen reflectance, reaching a 4.2%. It is particularly useful when under intense ambient lighting.
The Xiaomi 11T Pro flickers at 486 Hz, which is a high frequency for OLED displays. Moreover, the device has a flicker-free feature that works very well.
Although the 11T Pro is too responsive to ghost touches, especially in the corners, this does not detract from the gaming experience, and the device manages aliasing well as you can see on the crops below.
Overall, the 11T Pro reached a respectable Display score for its price segment. Its versatility will provide most users a satisfying experience.
