While the Find series from Oppo deals with those with fine tastes and those who desire luxury and sophistication, the Oppo Reno 11 phone has now arrived to take the banner and highlight the company’s efforts in trying to make a difference in the middle class. Interestingly, the phone is not only a cheap alternative to the company's leading phones, but it has also succeeded in borrowing a great feature from those more expensive phones, becoming one of the very few phones in this price category that includes a telephoto periscope camera.
This is certainly decent, and it certainly gives the Reno 11 a clear advantage over the rest of the competitors in this crowded price category. However, on other fronts, the Reno 11 finds itself on the back foot, with rivals offering faster performance and so on. With such strong competition, can the phone represent a bargain for users? Or is it just a lone phone that can't keep up with the race? Let's explore this together by learning about the specifications and price of the Oppo Reno 11, along with everything you want to know about the Oppo phone, in addition to its advantages, disadvantages, etc. This comes after we spent several hours trying out the phone, which led to us forming a fair impression of it.
Oppo has designed a beautiful phone, although it somewhat shares many features with the previous phone, and it also has a curved design similar to another phone, which is Honor 90, with a high screen-to-body ratio.
There's a nice glass back panel here as well. It has a shimmering finish that not only sparkles in the light – even in this dark “silver grey” color – but also seems to protect the phone from scratches. I can't quite speak for that, but I can attest to the fact that the phone I tested today is as it was the moment I first took it out of the box.
The Oppo Reno 11 features a decent 6.7-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 2412 (FHD+) and a refresh rate of 120Hz. These specifications alone mean that the phone's screen directly outperforms many other phone screens such as the Pixel 7a and Galaxy A54 5G, although it is much less than the wonderful Honor 90 screen. But that's also the case with a lot of flagship phones.
Color accuracy is good here, if not top-notch, and there is HDR10+ certification. It's not the brightest screen ever, but it's incredibly cheerful and certainly tempting to play games on, watch videos and movies on.
We've become accustomed to mid-range phone makers prioritizing a single camera sensor in an attempt to keep phone pricing at a certain point. We're used to this being the main sensor, not the telephoto one. In fact, it's very rare to find a $400 phone with a dedicated 2x telephoto camera like the Oppo Reno 11.
The company's most prominent phones in the mid-range category run on a mid-range MediaTek Dimensity 8200 processor, which provides good performance in all daily tasks in terms of running applications, games, etc.
Although there are other phones with more powerful chipsets, I had few complaints about the performance of the Oppo Reno 11 in my opinion in areas of daily use. It unlocks quickly (via the reliable in-display fingerprint sensor), and makes the 120Hz display work smoothly for general navigation.
The app startup time isn't the quickest, but that's something you'll only likely notice if you're coming from an expensive phone, which most people won't. Switching between apps is fast and reliable, helped no doubt by the generous 8 or 12GB of RAM, and 256 or 512GB of internal storage.
One thing I will say about the Oppo Reno 11 is that it remains remarkably cool and solid under the rigors of heavy use. It doesn't overheat under stress, such as when playing graphically demanding games, and its performance remains consistent over time.
Oppo has provided the Reno 11 phone with a 4800 mAh battery that supports 67W fast charging. This cell results in a strong endurance capacity that will help you spend a day of moderate to heavy use without much worry, and in the end the matter varies depending on the usage pattern. Every device owner.
The price of the Oppo Reno 11 phone is $350 for the standard version 8 + 256 GB, the 12 + 256 GB version is priced at $390, while the top version 12 + 512 GB comes at a price of $420.
The phone was unveiled on November 23, 2023 and is available exclusively for the Chinese market only. The global version of the phone will be launched, which will reach the Middle East and the rest of the regions later, and this article will be updated as soon as that version is announced.
Oppo knows how to make a good phone, and the Reno 11 is exactly that. From its sleek and serene design to its solid display and impressive rear camera, it meets a lot of expectations for all users.
This phone works great under pressure and intensity of use, and will handle playing videos and games without consuming a lot of battery power. I also appreciated the provision of a 67W fast charger in the box, which isn't the kind you can take for granted anymore. All of this leaves you with a versatile mid-range device that probably won't be anyone's first choice. This phone is simply the perfect alternative to flagship category phones.
