OPPO Reno11 5G Review

OPPO is starting off the year strong as they released their latest Reno11 series. Today, we’re going to do a deep dive on the standard OPPO Reno11 5G. 

For the OPPO Reno11 Pro 5G version, you can check out that review on our website right here.

Design and Construction

The OPPO Reno11 5G has a metal chassis with curved sides and a glass rear. Our review unit is in Rock Gray, while its other colorway is in an interesting Wave Green if you want a splash of color.

It comes included with a gray rubber case, which should protect your devices from small drops, scuffs, and fingerprints, but you will not be able to see most of its color anymore.

Similar to what they did with the predecessor, Reno10, you can see the main camera sensor up top and the other two lenses below it. This time, with the Reno11, however, the LED flash is not together in the camera island, but beside them instead.

It’s a bit odd for them to not put the flash together with the camera island like its predecessor as there is space to put it there, but to each their own.

You have the main camera in its own space while the other two sensors are below it. We’ll get back to camera specs later.

For I/O, you’ve got the volume rocker and power buttons on the right side, USB Type C port for charging, a dual SIM card tray; one of the dual stereo speakers is at the bottom, while the top side has the other speaker and an IR blaster that can be used as a universal remote control for your home appliances.

No protection certification has been specified by OPPO so you might want to be careful with this device. Other than that, the Reno11 is thin and not too heavy to carry around. In general, it fits most pockets.

Display

Like its predecessor, the Reno10, the Reno11 5G has the same 6.7-inch Full HD+ AMOLED curved display with up to 120Hz refresh rate.  It’s also got HDR10+ support and dual stereo speakers, but only has a peak brightness of 950 nits.

Harsh sunlight may be a problem when watching videos with this phone compared to devices that reach 1000+ nits. Then again, for the most part, it’s still somewhat usable when we are under the direct sun.

Other than that issue, watching videos and viewing media is enjoyable especially with how thin the bezels are. Plus, the Reno11 5G is able to produce true blacks and give out vibrant colors with its AMOLED panel and don’t forget the under-display fingerprint sensor for biometric security is also present here.

As for sound, and mentioned earlier, you’ve got dual stereo speakers and they’re pretty loud. However, audio tends to lose its bass in higher volumes so take note of that. If that doesn’t bother you though, the Reno11 still gives a neat overall viewing experience even with these minor drawbacks.

Performance and Benchmarks

For hardware, powering the device is a Mediatek Dimensity 7050 – a chipset announced back in May 2023. It’s got an octa-core CPU which consists of two ARM Cortex-A78 that’s clocked at 2.6GHz with six ARM Cortex-A55 that has a max speed of 2.0GHz. It uses an ARM Mali-G68 MC4 for its GPU.

Oppo Reno11 5g Gameplay

Our config comes with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, but if you need more RAM, you can have up to 12GB of additional RAM through RAM expansion. A microSD card slot is also available that can support up to 2TB.

We played Genshin Impact and Honkai Star Rail on this and if you’re a light gamer who runs on low settings? You’d be fine with how the phone performs. But if you do want to amp up the graphics to medium settings or more? You can expect evident lag while playing those games.

Even with OPPO’s Game Engine turned on, I don’t see much of a difference with it on or not. There are slight moments of lag even with the game is on low settings.

Another thing I need to point out is how fast the phone heats up after a short time of gameplay.

Not too hot to the touch, but it warms up significantly. But hey, if you just want to do your dailies on this device, it can get the job done. Just don’t game too much on this smartphone.

For those interested in what our benchmark scores say about the device, our Geekbench 6 CPU test results got a Single-Core score of 966 while the Multi-Core garnered 2,462. The GPU OpenCL got a result of 2,387 and 2,394 for the GPU Vulkan score.

Meanwhile, our PCMark Work 3.0 performance got a score of 10,282 while our AnTuTu V10.1 test got 543,235.

Camera

Moving on to cameras, the OPPO Reno11 comes with a triple-rear camera setup that features a 50MP Sony LYT600 sensor with an aperture of f/1.8, PDAF and optical image stabilization. Along with this is a 32MP telephoto camera with an f/2.0 aperture, and an 8MP Sony IMX355 ultrawide lens with an aperture of f/2.2.

For the selfie camera, it uses a 32MP OmniVision OV32C front-facing shooter with an aperture of f/2.4.

Oppo Reno11 5g Front Camera

For video, it’s able to shoot up to 4K at 30 fps for both the rear and front cameras.

It’s able to capture subjects with good detail, which we appreciate. The cameras shine when it comes to taking photos in well-lit environments, but quality does drop a little bit in dimmer places.

The photos that come out the Reno11 5G are really good. Details in well-lit environment shots come out crisp and clear, but night photography lacks in that aspect as the loss of details can be spotted.

With portrait shots though? It’s able to capture the subject well and together with Portrait Mode, the background can be blurred out to focus more on the subject.

Its selfie camera is not that bad either. Though, it doesn’t have the whole bokeh feature that the rear sensors have, the device’s color reproduction for skin tones come out really well.

You can be the judge of it though. Here are our sample shots!

This is what the selfie camera looks like!

Here’s our sample video for the device’s rear camera!

OS, UI, and Apps

The Reno11 runs on OPPO’s ColorOS 14 based on Android 14. The phone, though, has a ton of bloatware. These apps can be uninstalled manually, sure, but you have to take note of that when you first boot up the device.

Besides features like split screen and floating windows, one feature I want to point out is the Smart Sidebar. This allows users to easily access different apps such as Photos and the Calculator and turn them into a Floating Window.

Smart Sidebar also has File Dock that lets users drag something they want to save to the Dock, making it easier to access the file. If you have other OPPO devices that support File Dock, you can sync them through your OPPO account.

Battery and Connectivity

For connectivity, it’s got a dual SIM, microSD card slot, and an IR blaster as mentioned earlier. It supports Bluetooth 5.3, 5G, WiFi 6, GPS and NFC.

The OPPO Reno11 runs on a 5,000mAh battery and comes with 67W SUPERVOOC support. It took about an hour and a couple of minutes to charge the device from 20% to a fully charged 100%.

The phone lasted the whole day and a half as we’ve used it to watch videos, scroll through social media, take photos and play games. That’s an impressive battery life!

Our video loop test where we run a 1080p video at 50% brightness with zero volume and in airplane mode garnered a result of 24 hours and 10 minutes!

Price and Conclusion

Before concluding this review, we need to talk about price. The OPPO Reno11 5G has a price tag of 24,999 pesos for the 12GB+512GB configuration.

Kind of a steep price, but the Reno11 has a great camera that’s able to capture subjects really well especially in well-lit environments and really good battery life. 

Oppo Reno11 5g Review Ph

If that’s something you’re into and you like watching videos on your device leveraged on 5G data connectivity, you can’t go wrong with grabbing this guy as your new daily driver.

But if you’re someone who likes upping the graphics in your mobile games and night photography, this might not be the one for you.

What we liked:

  • 120Hz AMOLED display
  • Battery Life
  • Color reproduction is decent

What we didn’t like:

  • Not the best for night photography
  • Playing graphic-intensive games will cause the device to lag
  • Bloatware
