Vivo X60 Pro+ and Xiaomi Mi 11 are astonishing phones in terms of design. Both are made of premium materials including a glass back and an aluminum frame, and both come in a variant with an eco leather back. They also come with curved displays. In my opinion, the Xiaomi Mi 11 is a bit more stylish thanks to its less invasive camera module, but the Vivo X60 Pro+ is actually more compact and suitable for one-handed users. It is also more comfortable for your pocket. In each case, you get a punch-hole display.
Talking about the display, Xiaomi Mi 11 is a superior device. The main difference between these panels is the resolution: the Xiaomi Mi 11 has a higher Quad HD+ resolution with 1440 x 3200 pixels. With the Mi 11, you also get a higher peak brightness (up to 1500 nits) and one billion colors. But you should not underestimate the Vivo X60 Pro+ which still comes with an amazing AMOLED panel including a 120 Hz refresh rate and the HDR10+ certification.
Specs & Software
With the Xiaomi Mi 11 and the Vivo X60 Pro+, you get exactly the same hardware department. It consists of the Snapdragon 888 mobile platform by Qualcomm, up to 12 GB of RAM, and up to 256 GB of UFS 3.1 internal storage. Both are flagships and both are based on Android 11, but with different user interfaces. When it comes to the hardware, it is basically a draw and you will hardly notice the differences between their performance. With the Xiaomi Mi 11, you can choose between three memory configurations: 8/128 GB, 8/256 GB, and 12/256 GB. The Vivo X60 Pro+ has just two configurations: 8/128 GB and 12/256 GB.
Vivo X60 Pro+ is the best camera phone in this comparison and one of the best in the whole market. It includes a 50 MP main sensor with laser autofocus, OIS, and a bright f/1.6 focal aperture. It also offers an 8 MP periscope sensor with 5x optical zoom, a 32 MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom, and a 48 MP ultrawide sensor with gimbal stabilization. Xiaomi Mi 11 has a great main camera, but it lacks telephoto and periscope sensors: this is what makes the Mi 11 just a mid-range camera phone.
The Xiaomi Mi 11 has a bigger 4600 mAh battery and it provides a longer battery life in a lot of scenarios, but not always. The Vivo X60 Pro+ has a more efficient display, so the energy consumption is lower. But at the end of the day, the Mi 11 should be a superior battery phone. Unfortunately, the Vivo X60 Pro+ lacks wireless charging, while Xiaomi Mi 11 has fast wireless charging and reverse wireless charging. On the other hand, Vivo equipped the X60 Pro+ with a faster charging technology (up to 55W).
Xiaomi Mi 11 is priced at about €605/$730 in China, while the Vivo X60 Pro+ carries a €640/$711 starting price. Despite the Xiaomi Mi 11 has a better display and wireless charging, the Vivo X60 Pro+ offers a slightly higher value thanks to its amazing camera department. But not every user cares about having the best cameras, that is why the Mi 11 looks like a better option for certain people.
