Oppo F11 Review: Design and Construction
OPPO F11 doesn’t stray away from the F11 Pro because both has practically the same model, but it comes with different color options. The things to be noted is that, Oppo F11 has a notch for the front camera instead of a pop-up mechanism. The back still comes with glossy polycarbonate material with a metallic frame, but the phone still looks awesome and attractive with purple color.
You will get the same 6.53-inch screen at the front. To make the screen more immersive and for a better viewing experience there is pre-installed screen protector while the bezels are pretty slim. The volume rocker and the SIM tray that accommodates the dual-SIM cards in a hybrid set up are on the left side, and on the right is the lone power button. both buttons are clicky and tactile which is excellent as well. I also like the green strip inside it which adds a nice touch to the phone’s aesthetics.
The noise-canceling microphone ia at the top while as 3.5mm audio port, primary microphone, micro USB, and loudspeaker is a the bottom. It’s 2019, and in my point of view OPPO could have just put USB Type-C port in their phones instead for best reasult and better job. Still, I understand that Oppo have not yet fully implemented the VOOC charging capability on the said USB port.
You’ll see the dual 48MP and 5MP cameras at its back, while as top middle part of the phone has LED flash, and fingerprint scanner.
Overall, both Oppo F11 and F11 Pro feels same but without the pop-up camera mechanism. It has this extra and well-built feel, with having a glossy back its main problem is its smudge and fingerprint magnet. OPPO included a jelly case in the package so that somehow remedies the problem which is the good point of them.
Oppo F11 Review: Display and Multimedia
As I said before, Oppo F11 has a 6.53-inch FHD+ display with 2340 x 1080 resolution. The color reproduction is brilliant while viewing angles are great thanks to those slim bezels. This is a very suitable smartphone for watching movies or any videos because it has larger screen. Under direct sunlight, you still can navigate the phone without having any visual problems. There is usual glare issue, but, it can be repaired by putting the Oppo F11 at around 80% brightness or adjust it to the max.
Now coming to audio quality, the bottom-firing speaker can fill a small room. However, just like with the Oppo F11 Pro, the bass is pretty lacking, so I suggest that you plug in a headset or use a Bluetooth speaker instead.
Oppo F11 Review: OS, UI, and Apps
Oppo F11 runs on the ColorOS 6.0 UI based on the Android 9 Pie operating system. The user experience is quite pleasant as the whole interface is easy to understand. If you want quick access to some apps regardless of any applications that are running there is smart assistant sidebar for your easiness. You can also enable a feature that allows you to press the power button for 0.5s to quickly access Google Assistant which is neat.
Since the Oppo F11 is practically the same as the F11 Pro, it also has the same features and functionalities. By default, your apps sit in multiple home screens but you can also opt for an app drawer. Pre-installed apps include ORoaming where you can purchase data packages abroad, Game Space tp optimization the games on your device, Music Party, iReader, and the usual Google applications.
Oppo F11 Review: Cameras
OPPO F11 feature dual-rear cameras, consisting of a 48MP f/1.79 main shooter and 5MP secondary for depth sensing. Oppo F11’s interface is identical to the F11 Pro’s UI, so the features such as HDR, AI scene recognition, digital zoom, and filters are the same. By default, the photo ratio is at 4:3, but you can opt for a Full Screen, 4:3 (48MP), and 1:1 depending on your photography style.
Oppo F11 has ultra night mode in camera so you can shoot in low-light and still get decent photos which is the main highlight of its camera. Quality-wise, the images have good detail and sharpness. As for the low-light shots, it is indeed good. It’s not perfect since noise is still evident, but good enough for social media uploads. For the front cameras, nothing’s changed with the quality of the photos as compared to the F11 Pro and also has the AI beauty mode where you can adjust selfies manually by digitally editing your facial features live.
Selfie photos are pretty great in good lighting, but I got some doubts with the portrait mode as it doesn’t capture the hair detail perfectly. Nevertheless, the overall quality of the selfies is awesome and decent which I have expected from an OPPO smartphone. Oppo F11 has the capacity of recording up to 1080p at 30fps, but it doesn’t have any stabilization so I suggest that you use a tripod or you can keep your hands steady instead.
Oppo F11 Review: Performance and Benchmarks
Oppo F11 and F11 Pro both has the same MediaTek Helio P70 chipset, a 6GB of RAM, and Mali-G72 MP3 graphics. When it comes to daily tasks such as social media browsing, video streaming, file transferring, and even multi-tasking, With this configuration, you’ll have a smooth and responsive performance. Unlocking phone by fingerprint only takes less than 0.5 seconds which is fast while I can say that the company mastered its face unlocking technology already based on how accurate it is even in low-light conditions. Check out our benchmark scores below.
- PC Mark – 8,027 (Work 2.0)
- Antutu v7 – 148,769
- Geekbench 4 – 1,548 (Single-Core), 5,976 (Multi-Core), 5,451(Compute)
- 3D Mark – 1,289 (SSE – OpenGL ES3.1), 1,265 (SSE-Vulkan)
- AndroBench – 303.63 MB/s (Sequential Read), 188.55 MB/s (Sequential Write)
Gaming-wise, Oppo F11 pretty much can handle games from light-to-heavy graphics at high settings. Games like Mobile Legends and PUBG Mobile run smoothly here especially when you turn on the game optimization in the Game Space app. Asphalt 9 and Honkai Impact 3 pushed the device to the limit as I felt the rise of the temperature at the back of the phone. It didn’t reach a point where it is uncomfortable to hold it, so it’s all good.
Oppo F11 Review: Connectivity and Battery Life
Oppo F11 has typical connectivity features like dual-SIM but with a hybrid setup, 4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, and GPS. I never had problems with using navigation apps such as Google Maps as they are pretty accurate. Calls are also loud and crisp which is good.
As for its batter performance, Oppo F11 carries a 4,020mAh battery, 20mAh more than the F11 Pro, but it seems that it makes a remarkable difference. When tested in the PC Mark battery test, it yielded an 11 Hours and 6 Minutes battery life while our video loop test (1080p movie, 50% brightness, 50% sound, airplane mode, with earphones) lasted for 21 Hours and 42 Minutes which is significantly longer than the F11 Pro’s playback time. It only took us around 1 Hour and 45 Minutes to charge the phone from 20 % to fully charge which is fast, and thanks to its VOOC 3.0 fast charging technology.
Oppo F11 Review: Conclusion
Given that the OPPO F11 almost has the same specs as the F11 Pro, I’d say that I prefer this device over its Pro sibling, especially if I have a limited budget. They both sport the same good viewing experience, performance, camera quality, and battery life. I still have reservations, however, due to its micro USB port, as well as, its inability to produce 4K videos given its camera set up.
This phone is the better pick if the pop-up camera mechanism of the F11 Pro doesn’t appeal to you. There are still rooms for improvements, but for now, if you’re looking for a premium mid-range smartphone then Oppo F11 is here for you.
