Despite not being actually made out of metal, the Note 11 Pro feels quite solid in the hand. It almost feels like the phone just sits in the pocket of your hand, which is quite a refreshing feeling. It’s a bit tall for some, but you don’t feel like you need to play finger gymnastics just to hold the phone. At the edges, we have a USB-C charging port at the bottom of the phone, flanked by a speaker grill on the right and a 3.5mm headphone jack on the left. You won’t find any buttons, leaving just the SIM card slot on the left side of the frame. Instead, the volume and power buttons are found on the right side with the latter doubling as a fingerprint scanner. The phone weighs 209 gms.
As for the display, Infinix has implemented a 120Hz refresh rate and even with this LCD panel, it looks much better than expected. This massive 6.95-inch panel only has one small interruption, and that’s the hole-punch cutout at the top for the selfie camera. Other than that, we have an almost bezel-less display, which is quite vibrant and punches above what you would expect. You can opt to have the phone use 120Hz all the time, 60Hz all the time, or automatically switch based on what you’re doing. The display is good under direct sunlight and you will be able to chat well with zero interruptions. The display is large compared to Infinix Note 11 X663.
The main camera setup on the Infinix Note 11 Pro is unquestionably one of its more unique features, housing a 64MP, f/1.7 Quad Bayer main camera, with PDAF, a 13MP, f/2.5 telephoto with autofocus and a 2MP, f/2.4 depth sensor. For selfies, you get a 16MP fixed-focus snapper. The default camera app is well-organized and has a surprising number of options and additional features. There is a potent AI scene detection system, which not only automatically detects and switches between modes but also sometimes suggests switching camera modes outright There is a mode carousel on the bottom, as well as a slide-out menu and plenty of settings to fiddle with. Photos and videos taken on this phone are pleasing and perfect for social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram.
There are a couple of features Infinix embedded to ensure that the Note 11 Pro delivers unquestionable performance with whatever you throw at it. Infinix uses “dual swap partition technology” and “hot and cold pages identification algorithm” in the swapping mechanism which marks hot and cold according to the memory page activity level and stores them in different swap partitions to reduce the erasure of storage devices. Performance is sustained through long periods of gaming without the back heating up as the Note 11 Pro uses the embedded 3D-layer graphene film to keep the heat at manageable levels.
The Infinix Note 11 Pro is backed by a 5,000mAh battery and comes with a massive 33W charger in the box. Battery life lasts an entire day on light usage. You may even be able to get two days max if you are not streaming or gaming on it. Usage here includes lots of browsing on Chrome and listening to music, typing on docs and using other photo editing apps.
