Hi Guys,

So far I've seen 2 different "Mi 11 Lite 5Gs" and in terms of display couldn't decide which is better. Anybody can help me? Which one has a better display? One says "Vibrant OLED Dot Display" and the other one "AMOLED". Both are 10 bit and 90hz. Both are Global Versions. Though the other differences between these two are easy to identify, the display issue is a bit hazy...

Thanks.

These are two different phone models, not one model with two displays.
Eg, they have also different processors !

First was 11 Lite 5G - code name Renoir, later came 11 Lite 5G NE (NE = New Edition) - code name Lisa

Go to GSMArena and make a comparison between the two models to be aware of all differences

Also, if you carefully read all posts in this thread you will find more about their displays. Originally Xiaomi shipped 11 Lite 5G with one display (the worst), later the same 5G (still not NE) with another/better display, and finally 5G NE with the third display unit

I have 5G NE and display is ok.
Btw, I don't know if Xiaomi still produces 5G or they completely switched production to 5G NE (due to the shortage of processors for the original 5G) in which case you could only buy (if buying a new one) 5G NE

But be aware of something else: problems with the virtual proximity sensor (on both 5G and 5G NE and several other newer Xiaomi phones). That's really bothering me

Thanks for your reply and update.

Dealer offered me both, but I couldn't decide between two. Now it's clear and then I'll go with NE version. No risk.

Regarding your statement I think they have an old stock for non NE version (both are brand new by the way).

But first I really thought "Vibrant OLED Dot Display" could be better. Now I see I'm wrong...

Thanks again...

Hi guys, i have just purchased Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE (built 10.2021) and it has Tianma K9D 36 screen. To be honest it is a massive downgrade from Redmi note 7 i was coming from. Resolution of 11 Lite 5G NE is subpar and colors are pale for amoled display. Massive disappointment.

EDIT: After changing some display settings and using the phone for few days my eyes got used to the screen and it doesn't look that bad now.
Yes, that's the same case for me. Can u tell me which settings you have changed?

Lookks like I got the crappiest POLED of them all on my 2021.10 11 Lite 5G NE. The colors are horrible dull, and I cannot see anything in direct sunlight. I need to turn my back to the sun for checking the phone and it is completely useless for taking pictures.

Sunlight Mode 3.0? Really? it does not make a difference if I turn on sunlight mode. Could this also be a side effect of my bad POLED screen?

It seems my screen has broken. I have a corrupted horizontal line at the top of the screen that comes and goes. Mines the NE Tianma version.

    I bought a mi 11 lite 5G a few days ago, and it's a great phone. On the other hand, I thought the screen was not great, I felt like everything was blurry compared to my old Samsung A5 2016 (also having a 1080p amoled).

    After asking around on Reddit, it looks like Xiaomi is using two different screen suppliers, with two different technologies.
    The video below explains it perfectly well.

    So it is possible to come across a "PenTile" (or diamond) screen, a classic for AMOLED, or else a "RGB Delta" screen.

    The problem with the "RGB Delta" is that it is not as sharp as a "PenTile" because of its pixel layout. We can clearly see a drop in terms of definition and display sharpness. It is especially visible on the text (see photo below, Rgb Delta on the right)

    I'm really disappointed with Xiaomi, either you get a good screen or a not so good one... I tried to contact the support to have more information, but without more.

    After a bit of research I've found out that the Xiaomi 11 Lite NE (lisa) has exactly 2 types of panels - Tianma and CSOT. Comparison between the 2 can be found here. CSOT is from TCL and is supposed to be better than tianma, but I am yet to come across any lisa unit or user with CSOT. Most of them, including myself, are having Tianma.

    To check yours in MIUI, take a bugreport (settings > about > all specs > tap on cpu multiple times). It will be exported as a zip. Extract it, then extract the zip inside it, then you should see dumpstate_board.txt. Open it, and search for DisplayDxe.

    If you see
    Code:
    DisplayDxe: K9D 36 02 0a amoled dsc cmd
    Then you have a tianma panel.

    CSOT panel will show up as
    Code:
    DisplayDxe: K9D 42 0d 0b amoled dsc cmd

    Somewhere near that text you might also see
    Code:
    MDPPLATFORM_PANEL_K9D_CSOT_VTDR6130_FHD_PLUS_DSC_CMD
    Ignore this as its wrong, it shows the same even for tianma units.

    Another way to check is open the large text file bugreport-lisa***.txt, and search for
    goodix_get_panel_type. This is basically the dmesg of the goodix touchscreen driver. Tianma panel will show as:
    Code:
    [GTP-INF][goodix_get_panel_type:1054] This is TM Display Panel!
    While the CSOT panel will show:
    Code:
    [GTP-INF][goodix_get_panel_type:1054] This is CSOT Display Panel!

    Hope this helps!

    On a side note: Even though I have a Tianma panel, personally I don't notice any issues with it. Yes, text might be less sharper but I notice that only when I'm looking through a magnifying glass or a macro camera. Normally to my naked eyes, it looks perfectly fine. Perhaps the Tianma panel on lisa (NE) might be slightly improved over the Tianma panel on renoir (non-NE) after all.

    Edit 2: Tianma panels do have a bit of black crush. Not sure if CSOT has it too.

    Ok,I can't take better pictures with Iphone 8.Tianma display is 30% brighter and colour calibration is different and more yellowish(in the reality they are not yellow as on those black and white theme dialer pictures but they are still slightly different).Both displays are crisp and clear and I'm sorry I don't have a better camera to take a picture of it.Here are the pics...

    Hi. I got Mi 11 Lite 5G from Vodafone in UK. Black colour. Display is absolute disaster. Clarity is like in cheap phone 7 years ago. Additionally this display uses 3.8 TIMES more mAh in auto brightness then IPS in my Redmi Note 8 Pro causing much faster battery drain. It was in 90 Hz but now I'm testing in 60 Hz and it will be approximately around double what RM8 Pro needs for display.

    This is absolute joke Xiaomi. They sent reviewers good phones and scamming customers with cheap junk displays.

    For that reason I can't see any other choice than return this phone. I was so excited because of lightweightness and there we go... I feel Xiaomi scammed me. This is nowhere premium or midrange display. This is cheapest of the cheapest AMOLED. RN8 Pro IPS feels like Lamborghini compared to that junk. Mi Lite 5G screen is so unclear it causes huge discomfort for my eyes.

    Thanks for this thread.

    Just received my phone, ran the ADB command and found it's DisplayDxe: K9 42 02 0b amoled dsc cmd!! (Huaxing) :)
    Purchased it (the black color) on eBay from this USA seller page: https://www.ebay.com/itm/194143992052
