The Xiaomi Mi 11X Pro is an excellent flagship phone minus the frill like wireless charging, IP 68 rating, and a QHD+ display.

It is the cheapest phone with the Snapdragon 888 processor and has a much better primary camera than the Mi 11X.

Overall for the price, it is an excellent deal, the only con is the MIUI which is not as refined as stock Android or Oxygen Os from Oneplus.
