Oppo F11 Summary

The OPPO F11 along with its sibling OPPO F11 Pro are the latest buzzwords in the mid-range smartphone market right now. While both of them come packed with a 48MP camera sensor on the rear, the OPPO F11 is slightly cheaper than F11 Pro, considering a price tag of around Rs. 19,990. Despite the difference in pricing, they share almost similar specs when it comes to hardware (on paper, at least). So, what you can get when choosing an OPPO F11 instead of an F11 Pro?

OPPO has put a lot of effort into bundling the OPPO F11 with a bunch of good stuff for users who are looking for the best smartphone under Rs. 20,000. With OPPO F11, you can take advantage of a powerful battery, reasonably good cameras, and a reliable processor. As long as your expectations are not too high like what you can get from flagship devices, the OPPO F11 will never make you disappointed.


The 6.5-inch smartphone features a waterdrop notch, where not only the front camera but also the earpiece grille is located on. With a display resolution of 2340x1010 pixels, the phone establishes a 19:9 aspect ratio while enabling a 90.5 percent screen-to-body ratio.

The bezel parts surrounding OPPO F11 are pretty thin, but the bottom ones are a bit thicker than the rest. You’ll be able to see its fingerprint scanner with golden borders and a single LED flashlight nearby the camera sensors. The manufacturer has balanced out the color proportion design of OPPO F11 by printing its logo toward the bottom with the golden accent, too.

The OPPO F11’s display screen is equipped with a screen protector, of course. Speaking of display quality, the device is able to produce punchy and vibrant colors. The graphical interface looks very crisp and it’s hard to find any pixelation even when you use the device in a close range. Overall, the display department of OPPO F11 is good enough to receive some compliments.

The power and volume buttons give users amazing click feedback when being pressed owing to that they’re well incorporated with the device and feel sturdy. The top of OPPO F11 houses the secondary microphone for noise cancellation, while the bottom edge features the speaker grille, microUSB charging port, a 3.5mm audio jack, and the primary microphone. One disadvantage of this device is that people would love to see USB Type-C for charging rather than getting along with the outdated microUSB port.


As we all know, the performance of a phone mainly depends on the chipset, so let’s take a quick look at the MediaTek Helio P70 processor that powers the OPPO F11. Despite the fact that the Helio 70 isn’t considered as a promising choice for any smartphones in this price segment, things appear to be really different in real usage as compared to specifications on paper. Generally speaking, the manufacturer has made many efforts into optimizing the overall performance of this device. In our benchmark tests, the OPPO F12 scored 149569 on AnTuTu, meanwhile having 1552 and 6014 in single-core and multi-core tests on Geekbench 4, respectively.

The Helio P70 chipset is capable of handling every type of daily tasks with ease, including making phone calls, watching videos and photos, texting, browsing, etc. It’s also should be noted that the phone isn’t affected too much in terms of performance as it manages to run some apps in active mode in the background. What’s more, the process of switching between these apps is nothing but smooth and fast, not to mention that the load time when opening an app usually sees no delay at all. Putting the level of flagship smartphones aside, OPPO F11 and its Helio P70 processor can show you all the things you might expect.


Under the hood, OPPO F11 sports a 4020mAh battery, which can achieve 100% of power from zero after being charged within 1.5-2 hours as the phone supports VOOC fast charging technology. In another test, it remained approximately 96 percent of capacity after a night without usage in normal conditions. The smartphone takes around 1.5-2 hours to charge from zero to 100 percent. As such, the phone doesn’t struggle with any battery drain issues. Some features are also designed for battery optimization, such as Smart Power Saver mode and Super High Power Efficiency. For example, the device will show a pop-up message to notify you about the “Deep Power Down” setting whenever the battery level reaches 20 percent. Once enabled, the device will automatically disable the background sync, switch off the screen if it detects an inactivity period of 15 seconds, and reduce screen brightness as well.


As mentioned above, OPPO F11 and OPPO F11 Pro have similar camera specs. For your information, these smartphones sport a dedicated camera setup that includes a 48MP primary camera lens (f/1.7 aperture) and a 5MP camera lens (f/2.5 aperture) on the rear. In the meantime, you’ll get a 16MP lens with f/2.0 aperture for selfies. Thanks to this camera setup, the OPPO F11 is good at taking high-qualities photos without any hassles.

You can find the camera app on OPPO F11 easily to start taking photos or recording videos. To activate the 48MP resolution, you will need to turn on the 4:3 (Ultra HD) setting option because the camera resolution is 12MP by default. If you’re a photography lover, you may be a bit disappointed due to some drawbacks on the phone, for instance, OPPO F11 doesn’t support additional modes like Burst Mode, Chrome Boost, Zoom, or HDR. With that being said, the Ultra HD Mode appears to make up for several limitations – in comparison with the normal mode, it can capture images with more details although you will hardly be able to see the differences between them.

As for the Night Mode, the OPPO F11 doesn’t produce good outputs as there is a lot of noise in the photos while details go missing. Coming to the 16MP selfie camera sensor, it always results in clear and sharp photos in every lighting condition. It’s safe to say that the f/2.0 aperture helps it a lot, and the screen flash additionally works well in low-light conditions.
