In Brazil you can find the Note 11s for more or less R$ 2,400.00however on Aliexpress, which is where we buy it, you can find it for around R$ 1,250.00.

Graphics & Concurrent Configuration

The Redmi Note 11S, like the normal version of the device, is an entry-level one, so all 11 games that we will show you today are in the minimum graphics. By the way, there will be no Fortnite again because the game is not compatible. Finally, who will compete with the 11S in this dispute is the POCO M5, a smartphone with a very low price and that has a very similar level processor (subtly superior, if I’m to be completely honest).

Asphalt 9

The game that opens our list of the day is, as always, Asphalt 9. Here, the Note 11S scored only 30 frames on average, as the device does not release more than that, with an optimal stability of 99%. Its autonomy was 2:50h, but honestly we are very suspicious of this result, in fact, of ALL the recent battery estimation results here on the board. Because of this suspicion of inaccurate data, we won’t talk about them anymore, so if you want to know about the smartphone’s battery life, you can check it out at in our battery test, or you can wait until the end of the video where Potato plays COD for 1:00h and writes down how much the cell phone has discharged.

Anyway, the POCO M5 also scored 30 frames on average, with 94% stability.

IT IS ⚠️Wheel Seal ⚠️ for both smartphones.

Mobile COD

In the CODzera test the Note 11S left us a little disappointed and I’ll explain why. The performance was not bad, the thing is that the device does not allow us to go to a graphics quality above “average”, which is a shame. As for raw performance, it scored 40 FPS on average, with stability at 99%.

The POCO M5 had a very similar result, with 40 frames too and 98% stability.

⚠️Wheel Seal ⚠️ for both cell phones.

Free Fire MAX

Ready for the heaviest test of the video, which is running Frifas? You can rest assured that, with all expansions and assets downloaded correctly and graphics at the lowest, the Redmi Note 11S scored an average of 59 frames, with stability at 98%.

The POCO M5 barely outperformed the competitor, scoring the 60-frame rating, with 100% stability.

Both smartphones will receive the ✔️ Seal smooth wheel✔️.


In PUBG Mobile you already know exactly what happened, right? Well, the classic 40 frames are back. The good part of this is that the Note 11S was better than the regular Note 11, which only scored 30 frames. Anyway, the result of the 11S was 40 frames at 100% stability.

POCO M5 reached the same rate of 40 FPS at 100%, ⚠️Wheel Seal ⚠️ for both.

Genshin Impact

The results in Genshin were very far from each other, check it out. The Redmi Note 11S only scored an average of 32 frames at a stability of 85% with graphics at a minimum, a very low number indeed.

The POCO M5 put on a show, allowing us to have super fluid gameplay with 43 average frames at 89% stability.

Life After

The Note 11S almost got there, but it couldn’t outrun the competitor. It was in the area of ​​58 frames on average, with a stability of 98%while the POCO M5 reached a very high 89 average frames, with a stability of 100%, a more than perfect result.

IT IS ✔️ Seal smooth wheel✔️ for both smartphones, but the one who got the best was the POCO M5.

Apex Legends

The Battle Royale with the most absurd graphics on our list is certainly Apex Legends, and here the Note 11S was not bad at all, I’ll tell you the truth. Even with the lowest graphics, the game is still very beautiful and with the average framerate locked at 40, with 99% stability.

POCO M5 positioned itself at the same level of performance, with 40 FPS at 97% stability, a little below the competitor.

⚠️Wheel Seal ⚠️ for both devices.

Battle Prime

In Battle Prime the Note 11S didn’t get the best possible result, but it was definitely better than the Note 11 in the normal version, with its measly 30 frames on average. The 11S scored 45 average FPS, with a sharp stability of 100%.

POCO M5 also reached 45 frames, but with stability at 99%, giving a little variation here and there.

✔️ Seal smooth wheel✔️ for both smartphones.

Immortal Diablo

Once again Diablo Immortal didn’t release us more than 30 frames, a sadness. The Redmi Note 11S took the 30 pinned frames, with 99% stability.

The POCO M5 also scored the exact same: 30 FPS at 99%.

Honestly I don’t think 30 frames in a game like this is acceptable, so officially in Roda Liso both get the ⚠️Wheel Seal ⚠️but in my heart, it does not rotate.

Mortal Kombat

You’ve heard me say this a lot here in this Roda Liso, but I’ll say it again: I expected more from the Note 11S. In Mortal Kombat we tend to have much higher frame rates, but that’s not what happened, since the device was only in the 68 FPS zone at 94% stability.

The POCO M5 raised the bar, hitting 75 average frames, with 95% stability.

💎Competitive Wheel Seal💎 for both, but the one who came out ahead was POCO M5.

Tower of Fantasy

Since Tower of Fantasy came to the channel, it has been surprising us with the frame rate, since the game limits performance to only 90 FPS, giving room for a lot of fluidity and also variation of frames, which is what we saw here . The Redmi Note 11S scored 51 FPS on average, but with a stability of only 75%resulting in stuttering gameplay.

The POCO M5 was also fickle, performing 43 frames, with a measly 45% stability, an absurdity. ✔️ Seal smooth wheel✔️ for Redmi Note 11S.


With the ambient temperature set to 24°C, we played an hour of mobile COD to check both the heat of the smartphone and the battery drain. Redmi Note 11S, after this period, warmed up 🔥18°C🔥, an extremely high variation, considering that the cell phone in question is an entry model. At the end of testing, he lost 18% of his total charge, ending up with 82%.


We’ve already gone through the normal version of the Note 11 and now the 11S, what can you learn from all this? Well, the 11S is great value for money and overall it’s a good device for those who use it for everyday activities, such as social networks, videos and photos. Things go sour when we analyze him in games, first because the smartphone is an entry-level model that is naturally weaker than the others. The second point is that there are other phones, such as the POCO M5 itself, that perform better and cost less than the Note 11S.

If you are looking for a smartphone specifically for gaming and that is cheap to the point of costing less than R$1,000.00, opt for the POCO M5, since your processor is more current and the device is cheaper. But if you want something more casual, with a more stable performance in the vast majority of apps, stay with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11S, Selo Roda experience.
