Honor 50 Pro vs Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G

Honor is coming back to the global market with the Honor 50 series: a lineup of devices ranging from the budget segment to the upper-midrange one which includes three variants. The Honor 50 Pro is the most advanced one but, despite it is a Pro variant, it is not a flagship. As mentioned above it is an upper-midrange phone with 5G support, and that is exactly the reason why we decided to compare it to the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G. While waiting for the global launch of the new premium phone, you can now discover the differences between Honor 50 Pro and Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G.

Honor 50 Pro vs Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G


The design is one of the strongest points of the Honor 50 Pro. It is a very elegant and original phone. It is pretty thin and lightweight, and it comes with a great curved display at the sides and two round camera modules, as well as an amazing finish for the rear cover. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G is one of the thinnest and most lightweight phones of 2021: it weighs less than 160 grams and it is just 6.8 mm thick! It is even more compact, but the Honor 50 Pro remains a more beautiful device due to its curved screen and great finish. The Honor 50 Pro wins the design comparison, but if you want a more compact device that fits better in a pocket, choose the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G.


With Honor 50 Pro and Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G, you can get two of the best displays you can find in the midrange segment. Both are able to show up to one billion colors, and currently, it is almost impossible to find such a feature on midrange phones. Further, they are both OLED panels with a Full HD+ resolution. I personally prefer the Honor 50 Pro because it has a higher refresh rate (120 Hz) and an in-display fingerprint reader, as well as a wider diagonal. Unfortunately, despite having an OLED panel, Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.

Specs & Software

The Snapdragon 780G mobile platform found on the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G and the Snapdragon 778G found on the Honor 50 Pro are quite similar processors, but as you probably understood by reading the processor names, the Snapdragon 780G is slightly better. Further, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G has a faster UFS 2.2 internal storage. It runs MIUI 12 out of the box, while Honor 50 Pro runs Magic UI 4.2. In the global market, the Honor handset will come with Google Mobile Services since Honor is not a Huawei company anymore.



The rear camera of the Honor 50 Pro is way better than the one found of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G because it has a superior main sensor: we are talking about a 108 MP camera that is able to record 4K videos at 30 fps. Even the front camera department is a lot better than the Honor 50 Pro as it is one of the best selfie phones out there. It has a dual front camera with a 32 MP main sensor and a 12 MP ultrawide lens.


Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G wins the battery life comparison simply because it has a bigger battery with a capacity of 4250 mAh. With the Honor mid-ranger, you get a smaller unit despite the bigger dimensions, but it has one of the fastest charging technologies out there with a power of 100W (Mi 11 Lite has just 33W).


You can currently find the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G for less than €350/$413 globally, while we still do not know the global price of the Honor 50 Pro as it is yet to be launched (it costs about €350 in China). Overall, the latest Honor premium phone offers more value due to its better cameras, faster charging, and amazing design, but Xiaomi Mi 11 LIte 5G has a bigger battery, a more compact body… and a micro SD slot.
