If you can ignore the phone’s camera and software experience, Infinix Note 11s is a solid offering in the budget mid-range segment. At a starting price of about €180 (approx. $186), it’s safe to say that the phone is value for money. The phone’s overall camera performance is mediocre, though it’s not outright horrible. It has a 50 MP wide-angle camera with PDAF, 2 MP macro, and 2 MP depth sensor camera on the back. For selfies, the device features a 16 MP camera on the front. The device’s feature includes Quad-LED flash, HDR, and panorama.
On the subject of video recording, the rear camera set-up can do so in 1440p@30fps. The front camera is limited to video recording at 1080p@30fps. The software experience isn’t great either. This is because the XOS 10 isn’t the most user-friendly Android skin you’ll find, and the device is filled with Bloatware. Infinix Note 11s runs Android 11 out-of-the-box and is powered by the Mediatek Helio G96 processor. The Mali-G57 MC2 GPU handles the phone’s gaming requirements. Its overall performance is good, even though the processor is capable of turning in a much better one.
What’s also decent is the phone’s display quality. Infinix Note 11s has a massive 6.95-inch FHD+ IPS LCD screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. While you could find similarly priced phones with AMOLED screens, the device does feature a segment-rare refresh rate of 120 Hz. On paper, the phone can go up to 650 nits of brightness. In reality, however, the results are acceptable, but they could have been better. The stereo speaker performs surprisingly well, and it greatly improves the multimedia experience. The 3.5 mm headphone jack is expectedly present, and Infinix has done quality work in the design department.
The phone has a plastic back and frame, but it’s sturdy. Its plastic back panel does a good job of resisting fingerprints. However, the phone is tall and heavy, as a result of which it isn’t very easy to maneuver. For reference, the phone measures 6.81 by 3.09 by 0.34 inches and measures 212.5 grams. At this point, it’s safe to say that you don’t need to worry about its build quality. For colors, the options are Haze Green, Mithril Gray, and Symphony Cyan. Infinix Note 11s provides a battery life of around 1.5 days on average use, which is incredible.
It has a 5000 mAh Li-Po battery with support for 33W fast charging, both of which are among the segment’s best. Speaking of charging, the phone supports USB Type-C 2.0. Connectivity options include dual-band Wi-Fi, Hotspot, Bluetooth, GPS, FM Radio, and USB On-The-Go. As for the sensors, the device has an accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. Infinix Note 11s comes in five ROM/ROM combinations. These are 64 GB / 4 GB, 64 GB / 6 GB, 128 GB / 4 GB, 128 GB / 6 GB, and 128 GB / 8 GB. Memory is expandable by using a memory card. Besides a memory card, the device has support two Nano-SIM cards and connections up to 4G.
