The Quad-Cameras on budget phones are gimmicks; the primary camera is used for most images.
The Note 11 offers a 13MP punch hole camera with an f/2.4 aperture lens to take social media-worthy selfies.
Further, the mobile still runs on Android 11 (which is a bit old now, and some of the brands are already shipping new phones with Android 12); on top of it is the companies newly launched MIUI 13.
The phone promises all-day battery life and comes with a large 5,000mAh battery along with 33Watts fast charging support.
The device is not too thick and measures 8.1 mm, and weighs 179 grams.
Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v5.0, (IR) blaster, USB Type-C, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Lastly, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor surprisingly offers dual stereo speakers.
- Excellent AMOLED display.
- Fast Performance SD 680 and 4/6 GB Ram.
- Long Battery life and fast charging.
- Decent Primary camera and selfie shooter.

The selfie shooter has a 16 MP lens with an f/2.4 aperture lens.
The connectivity options are the same as the Note 11, and it also comes with a 5000 mAH battery and 33 Watts fast charging. However, since it is an expensive phone, the lack of 5G is a bummer because many other phones in the 15k to 20k range offer 5G.
