What happened to the Redmi 11 series?
Looks like Poco and Redmi is doing dragon ball fusion lol, then again they are
Asthmatic Otter, 18 Nov 2022Read again, I said 6000mah for "6.7 inch". For 6.4 inch or below, 5000mAh is okay.
... more> "𝘙𝘦𝘢𝘥 𝘢𝘨𝘢𝘪𝘯, 𝘐 𝘴𝘢𝘪𝘥 6000𝘮𝘢𝘩 𝘧𝘰𝘳 6.7 𝘪𝘯𝘤𝘩. 𝘍𝘰𝘳 6.4 𝘪𝘯𝘤𝘩 𝘰𝘳 𝘣𝘦𝘭𝘰𝘸, 5000𝘮𝘈𝘩 𝘪𝘴 𝘰𝘬𝘢𝘺."
No, for a 6.7 inch display, 5000mah is a sizable capacity with moderately long battery life. I obviously won't complain if it was 6000mah, I'm just saying 5000mah on an HD or FHD display is plentiful for the common user. You have to be thankful they didn't go with a 4000mah battery.
To me, this is what it looks like:
4000mah - decent at best, but most likely not enough to last a full day.
4500mah - decent most of the time. Lasts the entire day.
5000mah - The ideal capacity. Can last for two full days at very most. Above average, but not outstanding.
6000mah - A powerhouse of a battery, can last for several days.

As you already understand, resolution is also a factor. Even at 6.7 inches, 5000mah with a 720p display would at least ensure 2+ days worth of battery life (because of less pixels). So what meaningful difference does it make if you bumped it up to 6000mah? Sure, you get even longer battery life, but this additional gain isn't a necessity for most. It's a benefit, but it's not a necessity. Same thing with the jump from 120hz to 144hz.

And? That's all you can think of? It sounds like to me such phones are only just a few. When OEMs find a way to make the battery capacity more dense, yet retain the same thickness, that's when it makes the most sense to see more 6000mah phones.

LMAO. It's funny you say that, because I'm usually the one who focuses on bang for buck value. You think I enjoy that companies downgrade their specs and settle for less? I've been making the same kind of criticisms against companies like Xiaomi, just not towards their battery capacity. Even I know that 5000mah is a generous capacity for a 720p display.

This is clearly a baseless opinion, but sure, whatever you want to believe.
I will just say this: do not misunderstand me as saying companies shouldn't adopt 6000mah, because that's not what I'm saying. All I'm saying is your criticism that 5000mah isn't enough for this Redmi 11A is unjustified. I would also love to have 6000mah too, but there's really no need to raise your fists at Xiaomi for not including it, because realistically 5000mah is already enough for it.
I already disagreed when you said Vivo X Note's battery wasn't big enough, but at least that made sense (huge QHD display). But this phone? You've got to kidding me, there's no way you make sense here 😂
Besides, you focus way too much on numbers like battery capacity. For long battery life, software optimization is also equally important, and phones that don't last long despite having a 5000mah battery obviously fail in this regard.

Yeah, everyone knows the relation between resolution and battery consumption. I never claimed the opposite of what you are saying on this point.
For a phone of this size, 6k battery isn't overkill. It is a fair deal. Check out Redmi 10 India edition. Such phones already exist and aren't the rugged ones you speak of.
These companies create multiple versions, in the same shell, purposely, to milk every person in every segment. Then we have "genuises" like you who defend their practises and go around telling people to settle for less.
Sandwich, vegetables, whatever, it is upto the consumer. We won't praise companies for putting small batteries inside an large phone body.

2) It isn't a different debate. Battery life and screen resolution are very related. The lower resolution the more battery life.
Therefore lower resolution screens do not need as large of a battery as high resolution screens. Therefore low resolution screen on a massive battery capacity is simply overkill.
3) Your way of thinking is flawed.
By your logic, you would also tell the subway employee to put as much vegetables as they can in your sandwich, because A) it's free and B) by your logic the more the better bang for your money. Do you not see how ridiculous that sounds?

720p or 1080p is a different debate.
It isn't about "enough". We want the best bang for our hard earned money.
Asthmatic Otter, 14 Nov 2022"large 5000mAh" 😑
For 6.7 inch phones 6000mAh is the norm. They have plenty of room. > 6000mAh is the norm
This phone has a freaking 720p display.
5000mah is more than enough for such a low-res display. We're talking days of usage without charging here. You have no idea what you're talking about.
"large 5000mAh" 😑
For 6.7 inch phones 6000mAh is the norm. They have plenty of room.
I won't buy this if it has the same chipset again...
zaryan, 13 Nov 2022either it is unisoc t616 or helio g25it would be a first xiaomi device with unisoc cpu.
you have to suffer, 13 Nov 2022sd695 would be an overkill for 100 euro phone.
also the sd810 is almost 8 year old chipset. w... moreMan yea but SD695 will make sense it will outsell anyphone with pricetag under 150. or even 200.
And SD810 was meant for fun.
SD810 have a lovely history of overheating issues.
AnonD-731363, 13 Nov 2022Man it will be SD810. The worst CPU ever made.
It would be fun if it will be SD695 5G. sd695 would be an overkill for 100 euro phone.
also the sd810 is almost 8 year old chipset. why would anyone use that worst cpu??
either it is unisoc t616 or helio g25
Kontoloyo , 13 Nov 2022So what the soc, unisoc or mediatek ? If mediatek please no more g25/G35.Man it will be SD810. The worst CPU ever made.
It would be fun if it will be SD695 5G.
Anonymous, 12 Nov 2022Obviously this SoC has A73 or A75. Another e-waste. Since is meant to be budget phone for people who needs just the most basic its fine.
But feel free to make SD 8 gen 2 device with pricetag under or around 100 and make profit on it.
Kontoloyo , 13 Nov 2022So what the soc, unisoc or mediatek ? If mediatek please no more g25/G35.if a xiaomi phone comes with unisoc chipset, its a weird decision. almost no models use unisoc/spreadtrum. mostly snapdragon and mediatek
it could be a helio g70 that are found in realme C3, maybe helio g80.
Anonymous, 12 Nov 2022Obviously this SoC has A73 or A75. Another e-waste. it must be some helio like g70 or g80.
who knows? there might be more rumours.
socs that have 8xA53/A55 are considered e waste. cortex A7X are still capable of daily use. even moderate gaming.
So what the soc, unisoc or mediatek ? If mediatek please no more g25/G35.
Anonymous, 12 Nov 2022Obviously this SoC has A73 or A75. Another e-waste. a73 and A75 at this price point is really good. it will handle day to day activities with ease.
