This phone has top-notch features that are found mostly in high-end phones. From a huge almost bezel-free screen display to 48-megapixel primary camera and unique sleek design, Oppo F11 has almost everything that you would wish for, from a mid-range price smartphone.
Design and display
Oppo F11 features a sleek design and gradient color finish that makes it very attractive. A single LED flashlight and a fingerprint scanner sit just below the pill-shaped dual camera. Both the primary camera and the fingerprint scanner have a golden touch. The Oppo logo also is printed towards the bottom side of the casing. This smartphone also features a waterdrop notch that hosts the earpiece grille and the front camera. The side and top bezels are thin, but the bottom one is slightly thicker. This phone supports the nano sim card that is inserted on the left side of the phone. The power and volume buttons are also located on the left side of the phone. Both the volume and power buttons are sturdy and very responsive. Primary microphones, 3.5mm audio jack, micro USB charging port (fast charging) and speakers are located at the bottom side of the phone. The corners of the smartphone are slightly curved to enhance user comfort.
The Oppo F11 comes with 6.53 inches (16.51cm) LCD capacitive touchscreen with a screen resolution of 1080 by 2340 pixels. The Oppo F11 has a 19.5:9 and 90.5% screen to body ratio. This is quite impressive because it means that the bezel surrounding the display is minimal. The Oppo F11 display quality is also very impressive, with plenty of vibrant colors. Its screen is bright enough for both indoor and outdoor use. It features an auto-brightness feature that automatically adjusts light, allowing users to view the displayed content clearly. This phone also allows users to adjust the screen color temperature between three tones (color, default, and warm). Other display features include night shield and font size.

App load time is also fast. The Helio P70 can run multiple apps on the background without affecting the performance of the smartphone. This smartphone also comes with a 4GB RAM, which is more than enough to handle day to day functions and storage space of 64GB. This smartphone also supports a microSD card of up to 256GB.

The selfie camera, on the other hand, features a 16MP camera with a waterdrop notch at the top of the display. The 16MP front camera features an f/2.0 aperture that delivers superb selfie pictures.
Battery and charging
Apart from the sleek design, powerful performance, and clear camera, the battery is also a considerable strength of the Oppo F11. This phone has a powerful 4020mAH battery which can last a whole day for heavy phone users. Most smartphones within the Oppo F11 price range usually come with a 3000mAh battery. The fact that Oppo F11 features a 4020mAH battery means that the manufacturer went overboard to ensure that users have a seamless experience when using the phone.
In addition to that, the Oppo F11 also features a VOOC Flash charge 3.0 that allows the phone to reach full in as little as 1.5 hours. This means that you don’t have to wait for many hours as it is usually the case with other smartphone brands to use your phone. Even a 5 minutes charge can enable you to talk for more than 2 hours.
