After the great success of the OPPO F11 Pro, the global smartphone manufacturer has come up with an impressive variant of the series in its new OPPO F11. The new device might have three fewer letters in its name, but that does not make it any less formidable a proposition, especially when you add the fact that it actually is priced at a much more pocket-friendly Rs 17,990.
At this price point, users get an unmatched display experience. In fact, the very first thing that will strike you about the OPPO F11 is that display a 6.53-inch brilliant display with a full HD+ resolution of 2340 x 1080, and a dazzling pixel density of 394 ppi, which makes fonts appear razor shop and graphics stand out. Thanks to the presence of a waterdrop display, bezels have been reduced to almost thin lines on the sides, giving the phone an astonishing screen-to-body ratio of 90.7 per cent. A contrast ratio of 1500:1 and brightness of 500 nits means that this is easily one of the very best displays not only at its price point, but even some of those above it. The display handles colours very well and that extra shot of brightness makes it visible even in bright sunlight.
And if you think the front is impressive, wait till you see the brilliantly crafted back, which will you really love. Beautifully textured, it seems to switch shades of colours as light falls on it, giving it the sort of premium finish that will make it the envy of just about every other device out there- even the fingerprint scanner on the back with its golden accents looks beautiful. The OPPO F11 is not a phone to be kept in your pocket – it is meant to be held and flaunted, whether you opt for the Fluorite Purple or Marble Green variant.
The hardware housed within the device is no less. The OPPO F11 is backed by the super-powerful Helio P70 processor that was seen in the OPPO F11 Pro as well, paired with 4 GB of RAM, ensuring that it will fly through pretty much any task assigned to it, be it editing images to watching videos to even playing high-end games. The phone also comes with 128 GB of onboard storage, and if that does not meet your requirements, there is 256 GB of expandable memory. And making sure that all this keeps working for a while is a massive 4020 mAh battery, which not only gets charged in a jiffy thanks to OPPO’s VOOC charging, but also comes with a 20W charger, ensuring that you get fast charging right out of the box, without investing in an extra accessory!
Cap that with 4G, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, as well as a 3.5 mm audio jack, and you can see that if those looks scream style, then the hardware means business. Especially when you add Android 9.0 to the mix, with OPPO’s feature rich Color OS 6.0 UI on top of it.
We left the very best for last – them cameras. The OPPO F11 Pro had made waves with its excellent 48 megapixel and 5 megapixel dual cameras, and the new variant comes with the same combination, right down to the large f/1.79 aperture, which means that you will not only capture terrific detail and colours, but also amazing low light shots. The camera app comes with a number of shooting options as well, allowing you to innovate and experiment if you so feel inclined – and believe us, you will feel like trying out stuff once you see what those cameras can do. The second camera ensures you get beautiful, creamy bokeh for those portrait shots that make eyes pop. And of course, this being an OPPO, you get a fantastic selfie camera – a 16 megapixel shooter ensconced in that waterdrop notch, which is capable of taking utterly realistic or totally designer selfies, depending on your feels and mood.
All of which combine together to make the OPPO F11 easily one of the best options for anyone looking for a phone in the Rs 15,000-20,000 price belt. It has the looks, the hardware, the software and well, last but not least, the cameras. Mega performance, mega dazzling design, megapixels…and you do not even need megabucks to get it.
