Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, the time for endurance tests finally arrives

For Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra the time has come for the JerryRigEverything durability tests: the American YouTuber has subjected the most prestigious device of the Chinese manufacturer’s 2020 range to the now-classic triptych of scratch, burn and bend test – probably just a few weeks after the presentation of the heir. The device gets along very well: the ceramic back cover protects the smartphone well from scratches, while of course on the display side everything is as expected.

The burn test is a bit of a surprise, because the part of the display exposed to the flame resets quickly after just a few moments – typical behavior of LCD displays, while OLEDs usually remain damaged forever. Finally, the bend test: despite the possible concern about the structural weakening of the immense camera module, Mi 11 Ultra flexes just a little, in both directions, without however reporting permanent damage.

Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra represents one of the most peculiar and courageous proposals of the manufacturer in recent years: in the gigantic rear module there was even the space to integrate a secondary display – not just anyone, but that of the previous year’s Mi Band 5. No compromises – not even as regards the price, which is well beyond the “psychological threshold” of € 1,000. Let’s summarize the main technical specifications:
