You can find the full results of our battery performance testing below:
Overall Battery Performance
With an average price, of just over 220 EURO, the Redmi Note 11S is classed as a good Mid Tier smartphone, although one that you probably wouldn't want to play games on.
In our testing, Redmi Note 11S achieved the following test results:
Battery Performance Score – 50 out of 100
The overall Battery Performance Score is now a global score taking calculations from Battery Life, Power Efficiency and Charging Times.
Based on the battery performance testing results, this smartphone received a ViserMark score of 50/100. With this score, the Redmi Note 11S smartphone is ranked #30 overall achieving a satisfactory performance score, as seen in the ViserMark Smartphone Ranking 2021/22 table.
When looking at the Redmi Note 11S within the Mid Tier, it has reached 50/100 with its performance score. Even with its higher 5000mAh battery capacity, like the Samsung A32 5G with the same battery capacity, the Oneplus Nord CE reached 50/100 as well with a lower battery capacity of 4500mAh.
BATTERY LIFE - Days of Use
Based on the ViserMark test protocol, the Redmi Note 11S achieved a score of 2 days.
The Average Day of Use ViserMark score of a Mid Tier smartphone is “1.9” Day of Use which places the Redmi Note 11S just above the average and towards the top half of the Day of Usage table and gains a ranking of #42 for overall smartphone Day of Usage score.
The best smartphones have a lifespan of 4 days as shown in the table below. You can see that there is a range of manufacturers trying to achieve the Wiko Power U20 4 Days of Usage - it remains ranked #1.
The Redmi Note 11S joins many Mid Tier smartphones that have managed to reach 2 Days of Usage and joins a very competitive area of the Mid Tier, as highlighted below.
The Redmi Note 11S does offer a dependable battery life, although there are more powerful alternatives, therefore is well-positioned in ranking order of #42in Days of Usage.
CHARGING TIME – Hours and Minutes
CHARGING TIME - Hours and Minutes
The charging time to 100% was just 53 minutes. 66W SuperCharge is available.
The Redmi Note 11S finds well amongst the top ten fastest charging smartphones tested so far, as seen in the Charge Times Ranking table.
Having reached the under 1-hour charging barrier, it joins many of the OnePlus and Oppo smartphone manufacturers, all offering some very impressive and extremely fast charging times. The Redmi Note 11S gained an overall ranking of #14, a good performance, with an average battery capacity of 5000mAh.
The average Charging Time is 1:39 for a Smartphone within the ViserMark Mid Tier.
The Redmi Note 11S delivers 0.53 minutes of charging time, matching that of the OnePlus Nord CE and just ahead of the Realme 8 Pro.
The graph shown below shows the Charging Times as well as the battery Days of Usage. As you can see the Redmi Note 11S and the OnePlus Nord CE have the same performance results for both Charging Times of 53 minutes and 2 Days of Usage.
The Realme 8 Pro still achieves better Days of Usage with 2.5 days, despite having a slightly slower Charge Time of 55 minutes, while the quickest charging times are often hampered with lower Days of usage, as shown with the OnePlus Nord 2.
The Redmi Note 11S does offer 33W fast charging and is shipped with a power adapter, so you can charge it straight away. It does compete well as a Mid Tier smartphone and is in the overall Top 10 of fastest Charging Times -see our Charging Times Table
POWER EFFICIENCY – 5 Leaf Rating
There are several power-efficient processors, within today's smartphones, that can cope with the growing number of new applications and can support high-resolution displays without compromising battery life.
Power Efficiency is calculated using Battery Life and Battery Capacity. This is expressed in “Leaves", reflecting a rating between 1 being the least and 5 being the most power-efficient.
The Redmi Note 11S obtained an overall Power Efficiency Score of 1.0.
The average score for a Mid Tier smartphone is 1.6, meaning the Redmi Note 11S is just below the average in our power efficiency ViserMark Power Efficiency ranking table.
From the table shown below, we have taken the previous graph showing the Mid Tier performance results of Charging Times and Days of Usage and now introduce the Power Efficiency results.
These are highlighted in green.
The Redmi Note 11S does achieve 1.0, as many of the Mid Tier smartphones as a Rating for Power Efficiency. What is interesting to see, is the contrast between Charging Times and Days of Use.
From the graph shown above the Redmi Note 11S can perform considerably well, with 2 Days of Usage as well as a fast-charging time of 53 minutes. However, its predecessor the Redmi Note 10 matches both Days of Usage and Power Efficiency, the Charging Time was 1 hour and 17 minutes.
Therefore, to conclude Xiaomi smartphones, have made developments in design and performance as shown with the Redmi Note 11S. Although only maintaining, not improving Days of Usage and Power Efficiency, a much quicker charging time has been delivered.
Should I buy it?
In conclusion, the Redmi Note 11S is a good smartphone, with excellent battery capacity. Although perhaps a little overpriced, when compared to other Mid Tier smartphones, the Poco F3 provides the same offering with 49/100 Battery Score Performance, slightly slower Charging Times, yet less expensive.
Within the Mid Tier area, smartphones find it difficult to stand out above the rest, the Redmi Note 11S has seen improved Charging Times but has lacked to develop Days of Usage to be able to be competitive with several other Mid Tier smartphones that are regularly achieving 2 plus Days of Uasge.
