Here we get a Snapdragon 450 which is a power efficiency concerned entry-level octa-core processor. This is built for basic and regular tasks, handling less intense work and light gaming. There is the power to handle the OS, UI, and works such as internet browsing, media consumption, and official apps. This processor is mediocre and not that powerful. There are two models of this handset. One has 3 GB RAM with 32 GB storage and the other one has 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage. The only differences are memory and storage size.
At the front, there is a 6.4″ LCD display with a standard 60Hz refresh rate and HD+ resolution. People like a big screen for watching videos and surfing the web. It has a hole punch on the left side like the Samsung Galaxy M40. The placement of notch, size, and punch hole position is the user’s choice. Some people like hole punch on the center while some like it on the side. Some also find side hole punch to be less disturbing while some find it radically asymmetric.
Camera and Other features
Galaxy M11 comes with three camera modules at the backside. The first main one is 13 MP standard with f/1.8 aperture. Then there is 5 MP ultrawide sensor with f/2.2 aperture. At last, there is a 2 MP depth sensor with f/2.4 aperture. The main back camera of Galaxy M11 can take videos at 1920×1080 at maximum. This is a good combination for a budget phone. The setup on this device has a good priority order. It is always good to have a main wide sensor then have ultrawide and finally a depth sensor.
On the front side, there is an 8 MP selfie camera with f/2.2 aperture. It is inside the hole punch of the left side. The front camera can also take 1080p videos. The feature set is also quite good in the M11. There is USB Type-C connector, 15W fast charger, 5000 mAh battery, and rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. Rear-mounted physical scanners are still the best and fastest biometric security options. In addition, there is face unlock available as well.
Takeaway and Comparison with Galaxy A20s
Samsung Galaxy M11 is a smartphone that focuses on people’s needs. It offers a big 5000 mAh battery with fast charging. There is a 6.4″ screen, triple camera on the back and it has new One UI 2.0 on board. The RAM and storage are also good for the price range. For more storage, there is SD card support up to 512 GB. On the inside, it runs on Snapdragon 450 which is a power-efficient processor. Therefore it is not that powerful as it should be for the price. Next thing is that the screen is LCD and not OLED. Customers like to have brighter and better Samsung’s OLED screens because they are much better for watching videos and movies.
Overall, Galaxy M11 is a good smartphone at this price. But we have to consider that there is Galaxy A20s in the same range. That phone is very similar to this and offers slightly different specs. The A20s has a 4000 mAh battery and a 6.5″ LCD screen with the same resolution. Except these all other things are the same including the cameras. We only see the screen size difference to be a deal maker. Comparing everything, Galaxy M11 is a better value phone just due to that battery size. But it is better to get the M21 instead of this by adding a bit more.
