The Mi 11 Ultra is the company’s first smartphone to come with an IP68 rating. This phone is protected from water and dust. The company claims that the phone can stay safe in water up to 1.5 meters deep for 30 minutes. We also tested it and this phone came true on this claim.

In addition to this, Xiaomi has provided some more fun tools, which make your experience better. When using the phone, you can set the video from standard definition to high definition and from high definition to WQHD +. This allows you to view older content in high resolution without losing quality.
Xiaomi has also given several sensors in the phone. It has a 360 degree ambient light sensor. This sensor helps when you are reading in the sun. It adjusts the white balance and color, so there is no problem reading.

If you do not want the app drawer, you can disable it by going to settings.
The smartphone comes with Super Wallpapers. These wallpapers zoom in every time you change the screen.

The photos taken by the main camera give tremendous clarity and sharpness. Also, show clear information and accurate colors. The photos show negligible opacity. The ultra-wide angle lens also performed well during testing. It also has no flaws and the photo comes with perfect white balance. Photos taken with 5x zoom also come with great clarity and good color. Photos taken with 10x zoom are also good, but you will find some errors.
Photos taken in low light and dark are somewhat mixed. The special feature of the camera is that it automatically accepts night mode during shooting. Even in a photo taken at night, the camera clearly shows many things.
Another special feature of the smartphone is that you can also take selfies using the rear camera. You can use the secondary display as a viewfinder and take a selfie with the rear camera.
A 20 megapixel selfie camera is also good. Selfies taken in the light come out clear and sharp. Portrait shots also come in handy.

However, if you use the display at 120 Hz refresh rate, the battery is likely to run out within 24 hours.
The smartphone is fully charged in 1 hour with 55 watt fast charging. Therefore, it is possible to charge faster than this with 67 watt fast charging.
