Earlier this year, a giant Chinese smartphone brand, Oppo launched two new smartphones in its F series, the Oppo F11 Pro and the Oppo F11. The Pro version quickly captured the attention of many due to its many outstanding features including a 48MP primary camera, bezel-free display, VOOC charging, and a pop-up selfie camera. The F11 pro is indeed a perfect choice for anyone who is looking for a powerful, stylish, and classy smartphone.
Oppo F11 Pro Design and display
F11 Pro is an instant eye-catcher, thanks to its unique, sturdy design. Oppo has a good reputation in making impressive gradients on its smartphones, and once again they did not disappoint on the Oppo F11 pro. This smartphone has dual and triple color gradients that are very appealing. The Oppo F11 Pro sim card (dual nano) is located at the right edge phone, and it is attached with a microSD card slot. The power button is located just below the card slot. The left edge carries the volume buttons. The pop-up camera and secondary noise cancellation microphones sit on the top side of the phone. The USB charging port, the microphone and audio jackpot sit on the bottom edge of the phone. The primary camera, fingerprint, and the LED flashlight sit on the rear side of the phone.
The F11 Pro features a 6.53-inch display (16.51) with a screen resolution of 1080 by 2340 pixels. Although the motorized pop-up camera was put to minimize the bezel, Oppo F11 is not 100% bezel-free. There are still some thin bezels on the left sides, the top and the right side. However, the phone has a 91% screen to body ratio, which is quite impressive. The phone’s aspect ratio is 19:9, which is ideal for watching videos and playing video games. The screen comes protected with a screen cover. The screen brightness is sufficient both indoors and outdoors. The F11 Pro also features an auto-brightness that automatically adjusts the screen’s brightness depending on the surrounding. Although the AMOLED screen is still superior in terms of color reproduction and outdoor visibility, the LCD screen that the F11 has is still good enough. It has attractive colors and is highly visible, even in brightly lit areas.

The Oppo F11 Pro has one of the best cameras on the market. The camera is one of its key selling points.
