Design and Build

On the design front, Oppo has done it again – fooled me into thinking that it was a glass back, even though it’s plastic. Maybe it’s the color scheme, that looks different even though it follows a triple-gradient color pattern. This, here, is the Thunder Black, which comes in a pretty unique color pattern – a blue, black purple blend. And this does look stunning. I liked it, but if I had my way, I’d definitely go for the Marvel Avengers edition, which is a tad bit expensive.
The rest of the design is pretty standard, though. A rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, volume rockers on the left and a power button on the right. There’s a headphone jack and a micro USB port. I disdain the micro USB port, but I don’t get it why the companies like Vivo and Oppo are still on it.
Build quality is pretty standard for a plastic phone. It’s got some heft, and an okay feel in the hands. The plus side, here, is the pop-up camera comes with a Fall Protection – if it’s out, it just slides back in case you drop it!


The design is one of the phone’s strongest suits. But here’s something it missed out – cameras. The F11 Pro packs a whopping 48 MP primary camera and a secondary 5 MP depth sensor. But while every other mid-ranger these days are packing an ultra-wide angle sensor, this one doesn’t. And, for a company that prides itself in having one of the best cameras around, they missed out on that. Is it deliberate? I don’t know. But I just think that they should have made some kind of upgrade from the Oppo F9. After all, the F9 had the same camera configuration.

Still, I had quite a bit of expectation from the camera. Too bad, I was somewhat let down. Don’t get me wrong – the camera is not that bad, it’s just my expectations, because when we did a camera comparison between the Oppo F9, Nova 3i, and the Vivo V11, last year, Oppo was the clear winner. But now, I doubt the F11 would perform the same way.


With the pop-up selfie camera, the display here is notch-less and bezel-less. There is a small chin at the bottom, but nothing I can’t live with. And as it is with these full-screen displays, it was fun to use. You get a lot of room to work with, for almost anything – watching videos to playing games, or just casual browsing.

The display is big, too. A 6.5 inch IPS LCD display with a 19:9 aspect ratio greets you and I’ve loved the sheer size of it. There’s just so much room. And with 90% of screen to body ratio, the phone does not feel so big in the hands. The screen has some good colors, great viewing angles, and ample brightness. The pixel density, is great too, but what I will say, though, is the competitors, in similar price range, offer AMOLED or at least OLED displays. This doesn’t and so…it feels like a letdown.


Now, let’s talk about performance. And here’s a bit of a downer. This because it still packs MediaTek Helio P70 processor, which can be compared to the Snapdragon 660. But the competitors like the Galaxy A70 is packing a Snapdragon 675. And that kinda bothers me.
Go by the benchmark scores, and you’ll find other phones with better benchmarks out there. Of course, the scores are not the whole story. Regular performance is snappy. Apps open and load fast, and you can also do multitasking with a lot of apps in the background. Gaming is also pretty breezy. It will handle all kinds of games unless you want to play PUBG in the highest settings, it’ll do for the most part.


Also, the battery is the phone’s strong suit. With a 4000 mAh battery, you can get 2 days of battery life easily with normal usage. And even under extreme usage, you can end up with about 25 to 30% battery left at the end of the day.

What’s more impressive is the charging times – the VOOC Charge 3.0 does a great job when it comes to charging. The phone charges from like 2% to 90% in under an hour. The only thing is, I’d have liked to see a USB-C port.


As it stands, the Oppo F11 Pro is a good phone, with respectable performance, a good display, okay cameras, great battery, and some great design choices. For a standalone device, it is a good phone, no doubt. But when you start comparing it with others, that’s when things don’t look so good. It’s rivals, in the same price category, offer many other traits – like AMOLED displays, better processors, in-display fingerprint scanners and one that I miss the most – an Ultra-wide angle lens.
So, this is something that you won’t go wrong with. It’s just that it kinda fails to transition from the traditional to the modern trend in some ways.
