Reviewers from ndtv have found the following***:
In low light, the large primary sensor in the Mi 11 Ultra does a good job with details and colours. 120X zoom is great for bragging rights, but just like the Galaxy S21 Ultra's 100X, it's not particularly useful in most cases. The camera app does tend to artificially brighten images at times, which doesn't always look true to the scene, but noise is kept at bay in darker regions.

Pros
  • High-refresh-rate display
  • Excellent build quality
  • Good battery life
  • Decent performance
Cons
  • No 5G support
  • No microSD card slot
  • No headphone jack

Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra runs Android 11 with Xiaomi's MIUI 12 on top. It has its quirks, but the interface is generally very well matched with high-end hardware. Xiaomi hasn't yet enabled video capture with the secondary display, which, in my opinion, would make this the definitive phone for vloggers. The phone is priced at Rs. 69,999, the same as the OnePlus 9 Pro.

Pros
  • Excellent performance
  • Excellent battery life

Cons
  • No microSD card slot
  • No telephoto camera

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following***:
The Mi 11 Ultra is a top-spec, extremely powerful smartphone. Battery life from the 5,000mAh cell is much better than om the Mi 11. The 50MP main camera takes excellent photos, and I really like the video performance. The screen looks amazing, but there are still touch-sensitivity issues.

Pros
  • Top-notch camera performance
  • Excellent battery life
  • Very fast charging
Cons
  • No IP68 rating
  • No wireless charging

Reviewers from gsmarena have found the following***:
Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra takes better pictures and video than the Galaxy in virtually all scenarios. Galaxy has the better selfie camera, but the Mi's rear display renders that a moot point. OnePlus 9 Pro is evenly matched - INR70K for 12GB/256GB. Oppo Find X3 Pro maxes out at 2x optical zoom, but has a microscope camera.

Pros
  • Fantastic build quality
  • Good battery life
  • Good cameras
Cons
  • No IP rating
  • No stereo speakers or IP rating

Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is one of the top 5 camera smartphones in the market for 2021. I loved the telephoto lens and overall the level of detail displayed by each of the camera module's sensors. My only disappointments were the night mode and digital smoothing that kicks in too often in low light conditions.

Pros
  • Excellent camera module
  • 120Hz refresh rate
  • Good battery life
  • Fast charging
Cons
  • No wireless fast charging
  • No IP rating

Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following***:
Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is a flagship smartphone that can go toe to toe with the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and the Oppo Find X3 Pro. The Xiaomi smartphone features very fast UFS 3.1 memory, but the internal memory could have been faster. The stereo speakers, which were tuned by Harman Kardon, sound very good for a smartphone.

Pros
  • Bright 120-Hz display
  • Fast UFS 3.1 memory
  • Long battery life
Cons
  • Mediocre camera

Reviewers from t3 have found the following***:
Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra has a large 5,000mAh battery which is certainly promising. Running MIUI 12 OS, it's based on Android 11 so feels familiar and intuitive. Built-in dual speakers are tuned by Harmon and Kardon and make for a loud warm sound. There's no point in having a fast phone if its battery isn't up to scratch.

Pros
  • Incredible performance
  • Bright, vivid display
  • Long battery life
Cons
  • Second display isn’t as responsive as the first
  • Camera module is a little bulky

Reviewers from techradar have found the following***:
Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra has three cameras: a 50MP main, 48MP ultra-wide and 48MP telephoto snapper. On the front there's a 20MP camera for selfies. Photos are bright and bold, with plenty of detail. Ultra-wide pictures look good, with relatively little distortion, and 120x digital zoom is just as fun to mess around with as you'd expect it to be.

Pros
  • Top-spec, high-res cameras
  • Good battery life
Cons
  • No IP68 water resistance
  • No 120Hz display

Reviewers from techradar have found the following***:
Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra runs Android 11 with the MIUI user interface laid over the top. As we've seen on other Xiaomi phones, MIUI can be great and annoying in equal measure. It's fairly good-looking, and has quite a few customization options to allow you to personalize the look of your phone. MIUI is also fairly buggy – there are visual glitches in the swipe-down menu, notifications are sometimes sent multiple times, and you can get ‘phantom' notifications.

Pros
  • Powerful Snapdragon 888 processor
  • Great 120Hz display
  • Decent battery life
Cons
  • MIUI can be annoying
  • No wireless charging

Reviewers from tomsguide have found the following***:
Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is a powerful phone that's either going to be the smartphone bargain of the year or repakcage what the Xiaomi Mi 11 already offers. Xiaomi has successfully balanced the straightforward stock Android experience with its own exclusive features, such as floating windows, always-on displays, and an attractive look. The only new feature worth mentioning is the options menu for the rear display, found within the special features section.

Pros
  • Top-notch cameras
