Samsung Galaxy M11: Design
The Samsung Galaxy M11 is the latest entry-level smartphone from Samsung and it looks a lot like the Samsung Galaxy M21. The device has a plastic polycarbonate back panel with a triple camera setup at the back along with a fingerprint sensor.
The entire front of the smartphone is dominated by a 6.4-inch IPS LCD screen with HD+ resolution, protected by a 2.5D curved tempered glass. The display offers good color reproduction and has a punch hole or Infinity-O design giving the device a modern look.
Samsung Galaxy M11: Hardware Performance
The Samsung Galaxy M11 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 octa-core processor along with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage with a dedicated microSD card slot for additional storage expansion along with dual nano-SIM card slots with support for 4G LTE and VoLTE.
The Samsung Galaxy M11 can handle normal day-to-day usage like browsing social media apps, watching videos, and making calls and sending messages with ease. Similarly, the device can also handle some light gaming, especially with titles like PUBG Lite.
Samsung Galaxy M11: Camera Performance
The Samsung Galaxy M11 has a triple camera setup at the back with a 13MP primary sensor, 5MP ultra-wide angle lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. At the front, the device has an 8MP selfie camera with features like 1080p video recording.
In regular lighting conditions, the Samsung Galaxy M11 can take good photos and videos with both the primary sensor and the ultra-wide angle lens. However, the photos taken on the ultra-wide angle lens are not that sharp due to the lower MP count and the depth sensor does work well while taking portrait shots.
Samsung Galaxy M11: Price To Specs Ratio
The Samsung Galaxy M11 retails for Rs. 10,999, which makes it one of the most affordable Samsung smartphones with a punch-hole display. Not just that, the device does offer improved connectivity features like Bluetooth 5.0 and dual-band Wi-Fi.
The smartphone does feel a bit expensive, especially when considering the fact that it just has a 720p screen. Other than that, the device does offer competitive features when compared to the contemporaries and not to forget the brand name associated with the device.
Samsung Galaxy M11: Important Features/Highlights
The Samsung Galaxy M11 has a massive 5,000 mAh battery and the device does support 15W fast charging via the USB Type-C port. Not just that, the device also has a dedicated 3.5mm headphone jack that improves the overall music consumption experience on the Samsung Galaxy M11.
In terms of software, the smartphone ships with Android 10 OS out-of-the-box with custom OneUI skin on top.
