Modeled against the Samsung Galaxy A11 and on the heels of the higher-priced Samsung Galaxy M10, the Samsung Galaxy M11, a very formidable entry-level budget phone with an improved design. Compared to the Samsung Galaxy M10, the specifications are clearly a step-down. But for the price, is it the value king it is selling itself as? Let’s find out.
Design and display
The Samsung Galaxy M11 comes with a 6.4 inch IPS LCD capacitive screen with a left top-aligned punch hole cut out to accommodate the front-facing selfie camera. The 720p screen has a screen to body ratio of 81.6% and a PPI density of 268. The Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protected front panel blends into the middle plastic frame all the way to the plastic back. There, you find a triple camera set up and a center placed fingerprint scanner. At the bottom, we have a downward-firing speaker grill, a USB-C connector, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The phone weighs in at 197g and is 9mm, largely because of the large battery.
Performance and storage
The Samsung Galaxy M11 comes with the budget entry-level snapdragon 450 14nm chipsets, paired with the octa-core 1.8GHz Cortex A53 CPU and the Adreno 506 GPU. It comes with a 3/4GB of RAM and a 32/64 GB of ROM, with a dedicated microSDXC card which can expand the memory by an extra 512GB. The SoC is pretty decent, well optimized to handled average tasks, with little or lag. When it comes to extremely intensive tasks, the phone can drop a frame or two, but nothing embarrassing. The SD 450 is a widely respected entry-level chip and it should be worth the value it proposes.
The Samsung Galaxy M11 comes with a triple camera set up. The primary camera is a 13mp wide 27mm sensor, a 5mp 14mm ultra-wide lens, and a 2mp depth sensor. The photos are certainly basic, usable but not very sharp. It works great with well-lighted areas and in short focusing distance. Anything past ideal shooting conditions and everything can get grainy, noisy, and not well detailed.
The 2 extra sensors however make a whole lot of difference as this is certainly not your average budget camera. It can shoot full HD video at 30fps, with support for HDR and Panorama. The selfie camera is a decent 8mp wide shooter, capable of HDR and 1080p video at 30fps – see also Samsung Galaxy M10s
The Samsung Galaxy M11 comes with one massive battery, a 5000mAh nonremovable Li-Po battery, a far cry from the usual 4000mAh one. With a less power-draining LCD screen and a budget well-optimized chipset, this battery is certainly very big. It can easily push into 2 days without charge and still have some left.
On top of that, the phone comes with 15W fast charging, to help top up the unit in a little over 2 hours. The battery is inarguably the highlight of this device, offering virtually unlimited juice for the power user, for more than a day, guaranteed. That’s a great proposition!
The Samsung Galaxy M11 comes with Android 10.0 with Samsung’s One UI 2 straight out of the box. This is the latest and the best. The UI is visibly lighter compared to its earlier versions, promising a more fluid and cleaner experience, with no unnecessary bloatware overworking the otherwise entry-level SoC. This is a very wise move, making the phone fast, responsive, and certainly enjoyable to use.
The Samsung Galaxy M11is a great addition to the lineup of Samsung entry devices. The punch hole design, the bigger battery, and a Snapdragon SoC will certainly endear it to many users as it feels like a much more expensive gadget. The phone comes in Black, Metallic Blue, and Violet.
