Product Code: OPPH-F11PROBK
Model No: F11PRO
This device’s display is basically ideal. It’s extremely bright, colorful, and it’s not interrupted by any silly front-facing cameras. There’s no notch, there’s no camera hole. It’s not as rectangular-edged as the Razer Phone series, but we’ll forgive that since this isn’t meant to be a gaming phone. Instead we get a slightly rounded-corner display with no interruptions, and no distractions.
This is the sort of display that I like best. There is no stylization for which I must atone. There is no sensor array. I do not use a front-facing camera more than once in a great while anyway – so I’m very glad to find this phone’s front-facing camera tucked away, physically.
There’s nothing here to distract from the 6.53-inch full HD+ LCD display (2,340 x 1,080 pixels), including a 90.9% screen-to-body ratio. That’s amongst the most extreme of said ratios in the industry today.
If you twisted my arm, I’d recommend that the bottom bezel could be the same width as the top. But my preference here isn’t necessarily an issue – certainly not a big enough issue to turn the phone down.
This device runs ColorOS 6 operating system on top of Android 9.0 Pie, which means you’ll have all the benefits of Android, with OPPO’s take on OS aesthetics. You can also choose to run any of a variety of Android homescreen replacement apps, but you probably won’t feel the need. ColorOS 6 is looking good, running swiftly, and keeps all the best elements from the basic Android build – so what’s not to like?
You’ll get a thin case in the box, regardless of model, but you might just want to leave it off. The color of the back of this phone is glorious. OPPO’s used a technique for color application that shoots well above its weight class. Looking at the back of this phone makes me feel as though I’m holding a premium piece of hardware. This does NOT feel like something that should be classified “mid-range.”
But the OPPO F11 Pro is priced like a mid-range phone, and it’s got a processor that seems to plant its abilities in the middle range. But by outward appearance, color, feel, and industrial design, the OPPO F11 Pro is an AAA device top to bottom.
NOTE: I’m talking about the “Thunder Black” version of the phone, with a gradient from blue to black to purple. Aurora Green is probably stunning too, I must assume, though I’ve not seen it in person to judge.
BONUS: This device is intended for India, where they still value the headphone jack – so there’s a standard headphone jack on this phone. There’s also micro-USB, not USB-C, partially because the charging tech OPPO uses here is based in micro-USB, partially because micro-USB makes more sense for the intended market for this phone.
The cameras on this device takes extremely nice photos. I’m mostly referring to the backside set of cameras – but the frontside camera is pretty OK, too. The rear camera array has the following: Camera 1: 48 MP, f/1.8, 1/2.3″, 0.8µm, PDAF. Camera 2: 5 MP, f/2.4, 1/5″, 1.12µm, depth sensor, LED flash, HDR, panorama, video 1080p at 30fps.
