Phone provided by Xiaomi for review.


  • I'm a photographer. As of today, I've still never been impressed with photos taken with "any" phone camera. The only purpose for the camera in my phone is like, "Honey, is this the right cat food". Other than that, if I see something worthy of a fantastic, artistic photo, Im reaching for a real camera.

  • You may notice, google pixel 1 camera and photos are way better 😳

  • So nobody is gonna talk about how he said that the camera is the size of the moon just to move the phone and show a moon behind him? Sheeshhh

  • Android cameras always feel cheap for some reason

  • Yes I'd carry it.

  • When that phone is laying on its back, you could literally jump it with a bike...

  • Y'all outdid yourselves on that intro! So crispy!

  • The LG G5's Ultra-wide Camera is the widest Ultra-wide camera till date with a 135° fov (even wider than the Mi 11 Ultra's).

  • I would have liked to see a f 1.3 aperture on the main camera.

  • Check out flossy Carter's review on this phone. He shows how useful that second display is. Marques did not show it's everyday usefulness as Carter did. I really wish this was a phone that was carried by T-Mobile cause I'd pick it up immediately.

  • Which phone should I buy vivo x 60 pro plus or mi 11 ultra

  • This phone is looking like a beast, i love Samsung and they partner up, so yeah, i would use it.

  • The phone is lit. But the intro was fire

  • What about the Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 it has a full 1" sensor?

  • Satysfying intro 😀

  • 2:57 check out the ultrawide

  • Xiaomi is so good

  • Idgaf about Retro Tech

  • Would you?

  • This phone Is amazing

  • 1 lens on back 35mm equivalent fov bigger lens would be perfect.

  • Wow retrotech looks lit and sick! Lit!

  • Ngl phone looking kinda sus not gonna lie

  • Very picky on smartphone cameras sometimes I wonder if the average user can keep up with all the information. However very useful. Close to the phone off my dreams btw I'm off to save some 💰

  • Does mi 11 ultra have LTPO display?

    • @Ankit Jain Sorry, my mistake. I just sort of assumed it was there. I would love for the new iPhones to have high refresh though!

    • @namcicle mi 11 ultra does not have LTPO Display. Till now samsung s21 series, oppo find x3 and OnePlus 9 pro have LTPO display. Apple iPhone 13 is rumoured to have LTPO display.

    • Yes it does.

  • Apple and Samsung be like: *Write that down, hurry write that down!!*

  • 00:05

  • Am I the only person left on the planet who doesn’t give a fuck at all about the camera that a phone has? I take like 3 pictures a year. I would rock this phone in a heartbeat because of all the other features it has.

  • Dude how big are your hands exactly? I am amazed to notice the ease with which you Handle these big phones.

  • Can it film at 24 or 25 fps?

  • Hello Sir , 👏👏👏👏👏There is no one in this world to help me👏👏👏👏👏👏 I'm Bodiul Alom ..I'm from Bangladesh..I'm a Pubg lover..But i need hard device like this phone... i have a device..Xiaomi redmi note 7...This device capasity 4/64 GB .When i played Pubg Mobile this phone too lake,hot and this device already broke...I request for you,Can you give me a hard device?

PLEASE SIR Begging .Begging.Begging.Begging.Begging.Begging.Begging me I hope you help me.. Can you help me?

  • Yes I would

  • How's the software?...bloatware ?

  • Won't it get scratches on the carema?

  • Nobody cares about a sleek cell phone. Why don't they just put a bigger battery in there so it runs flush with the camera

  • 1:12 Missed opportunity: "Let's just jump straight into this camera, Xiaomi?"

  • I found the wallpaper from the Galaxy Fold 2 video search for Rite of Passage on Backdrops

  • About the camera bump - I don`t mind the look, but I`m really curious just how good (or "good") it`ll feel in your pocket... Although I think with a phone case it`ll probably be much less extreme too :)

  • Xioami Redmi Note 10 please

  • just send it to me 🤙

  • How come no one worries all China phones send data back to China anymore?

  • this smartphone is a SUS reference?

  • Let get into this camera. Xiaomi(shall we )

  • Xiaomi? no thankz.

  • Galaxy S4 Zoom: "Am I a joke to you?!"

  • @7:06 you can clearly see the switching cameras somewhat smoothly lol actually it's not even near somewhat smoothly lmao

  • I would rock if it didn't have a front camera

  • Just glue another camera on the back.

  • I just wanted to know what's the name of the intro song

  • but still it can’t beat i phone 12 pro/pro max


  • Of course it’s made in the Shtty country so cringe 😬

  • may I ask why he is always looking up.. or is it a script or something?

  • Do you return the phone or it's yours forever

  • The retro-tech trailer though ❤️

  • Hi I got 1 question Can you create the perfect smart phone for the whole world with economy?

  • 11:20 just like crypto dips ..

  • Why even make a phone with 120X zoom? I have 100X on the S20 Ultra and barely use it. The highest I go is 50. If I go higher it's to just play around.

  • This man needs a hair cut

  • That intro though ✨🌏

  • Well Details Explains. In Mi Mobile must check the Low light video capability. In Note6, Note 8pro & 9pro worsted in low light video 😭😤.

  • NGL, a slideshow of small cute images would look good in that little screen. Like maybe a cactus, then a cap, then an emoji etc.

  • Samsung huawei Xiaomi phones with this type of dedicated zoom option is useless with blurred image output

  • What's that INTRO SONG?!

  • Mi 11= I have covered half of back by camera Mi 55 = My whole back is camera

  • DXO detailed testing shows it trumps every other phone camera on the market. That little screen on the back also shows you incoming messages and you can answer or reject phone calls from it as well, all with out picking your phone up off the table.

  • 7:50 Nickelback?

  • Ah ok so EST stands for Eastern Sharp Time, noted bro :D

  • what's the price in europe? also does this screen have PWM flicker problem like with Samsung phones?

  • The hardware has everything you want. But the software is something that's keeping me away

    • lemme guess ur an apple fan lmao

  • Witaj Czy możesz mi JEGO Podarować ? Pozdrawiam z Polski ..

  • Ok

  • A case will almost go flush. Everyone has a case on their phones now days. I see phones with big camera bumps as phone case built. If they made the phone thicker then a case wouldn't make it flush.

  • @mkbhd , What usb charging protocols this phone supports ? Usb-pd ? Qc4+ ? And is the interface usb3.0 or 2.0 ?

  • Bad bad phone in terms of data security. If you buy this phone your personal data goes for toss

  • Amogus

  • Would you cover iqoo 7 series phones?

  • Xiaomi is killing these days

  • hpne jen apik zakin

  • Awesome

  • yeah I'll rock it, if you gimme

  • MKBHD is always a legend in terms of his intros

  • I'll wait till samsung will implement it better in the next galaxy s22 ultra

  • Maybe a good camera phone ...but it is riskey, huge bulke giant camera setup with display 🧐 Don't drop this phone not even by mistake.

  • They might have added that screen on back because people will placing phone with screen as base ... Like upside down due to bump caused by camera.

  • Are you sure that stamps are correct on 4:42? Because the shot on Mi 11 Ultra seems to have a better exposure and light-control, look at the sky and the street with trees on left.

  • love from india....bro....😘😘


  • 7:50 every time I do, it makes me laugh

  • sus

  • Great opinions as always Marques, love the honesty. I hate camera bumps, so yeah i take the cheese part look with a bigger battery

  • Hand the phone to jerry...

  • It's a sarcastic review from you...May be it's not a perfect phone, but, please tell us which is the perfect phone now in your opinion to buy...You, the reviewers are making contradictory reviews and confusing the viewers...But, all the reviewers have one thing in common...They all like the Iphones the most 😁😁...Why?? 😂

  • This review does not do this phone justice. Watch other reviews to compare. Fact he didnt even point to the other uses u can do from the back lcd screen says it all. Check other reviews all. Also his take on the 120 zoom is vague beyond belief. Maybe he gets paid by Apple or Samsung listening to this review here especially seeing as this phone could be better than the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. U been warned!

  • I want to buy a new phone and kinda confused between Oneplus 9 pro and MI 11 Ultra. Can you please help me out in making a more informed decision ?

  • Waiting for Jerry to open up this Monster!

    • So excited.. Can't wait to see that one🤯

  • can u tell me please that what is the book in the background??? 1:20

  • If concerts were still going on like they used to I’d definitely get a separate Android just for the camera. I used to go to concerts very regularly so it’d be a good investment. Then I’d just have an iPhone for regular use.

    • these sample images is some of the worst I've ever seen.

  • This guy had more praises for iPhone 12 mini & iPhone SE2 than Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra.

    • Although I do prefer the two button navigation thing. Why was it quickly phased out and the harmless option completely removed?

  • I've been using Samsung last 2 years much better than MI phones, any which ways will not buy or even care any for Chinese phones or products
