From an Attractive Design to Best-in-Class Specifications, the OPPO Reno11 5G Checks All The Right Boxes. Here’s How

Here are the top reasons why you should consider the OPPO Reno11 5G as your next smartphone.


OPPO is one of the very few brands that has been consistently thinking out of the box when it comes to pushing the envelope in terms of innovation. Its latest launch, OPPO Reno11 5G, is a testament to the brand’s commitment to the Reno series ethos of delivering an exemplary combination of design, camera, and raw power.

With a stylish and fluid design inspired by nature, the best-in-class immersive display, an unparalleled camera setup, and raw performance with an all-day battery, the OPPO Reno11 5G has everything. We took the smartphone for a spin, and it exceeded our expectations in every single aspect. So, without further ado, let’s delve into how OPPO Reno11 5G sets the bar for design and performance.

Design That Never Fails to Make You Look Good

We loved the hand feel and looks of the Reno11 5G as it comes with one of the slimmest profiles in the industry and stunning finishes that never fail to grab eyeballs. The smartphone follows the Reno series ethos with two stunning color options: Wave Green and Rock Grey. With these hues, OPPO has ensured that it has a model for both sets of consumers — those who like flashy design and those who prefer classy design.

We prefer the Wave Green variant for its elegance and unique hue. But no matter which color you pick, OPPO Reno11 5G is excellent to look at whenever you pull it out of your pocket.

The OPPO Reno11 5G not only looks good but also feels good in the hand because of its sleek and lightweight build. We found the Reno11 5G’s 3D curved design to be highly ergonomic and easy to hold. At just 7.9mm, the Reno11 5G is incredibly thin and weighs only 182g, making it comfortable to hold longer. So, whether we were playing our favorite game on the device or streaming the latest movies, we did not experience any wrist fatigue.

Multimedia Lovers’ Delight

The Reno11 5G mesmerized us with its truly immersive display. Combining a massive 6.7-inch AMOLED display with an almost bezel-less curved panel featuring an impressive 93% screen-to-body ratio, the viewing experience on this device was great. The 120Hz refresh rate ensured our interaction with the screen and scrolling was buttery smooth.

Adding to the whole experience is the fact that the display is a 10-bit panel which means the smartphone can show 1.07 billion shades for accurate colour reproduction on display. The icing on the cake is the HDR10+ compatibility and Amazon Prime HDR Certification, which offers a more natural-looking color when watching high-resolution videos on platforms like Netflix, YouTube, or Prime Video. Throughout our usage whether watching HD content viewing applications or editing documents, the display impressed us as it held on to its clarity and color reproduction.

The visual prowess of the Reno11 5G makes it a binge-watcher’s dream, but the buck does not stop here. We finally tested the thumping audio offered through 300 percent Ultra Volume Mode and stereo sound from dual speakers with OReality Audio. With a display that blends seamlessly into the sleek design and powerful audio, the Reno11 5G takes you on a truly immersive audiovisual journey.

Cameras That Take Your Creativity to New Heights

The OPPO Reno series is known for offering camera phones that can replace any point-and-shot camera in the biz. The Reno11 5G follows the trend and has a trio of powerful cameras on the back with advanced software innovations like Portrait Expert Engine.

The Ultra-Clear Portrait camera module that integrates seamlessly into the sleek design houses the best-in-class portrait lens, powerful primary camera, and a 4K Ultra-Clear camcorder. The camera system is helmed by a 50MP Sony LY600 primary sensor with a 1/1.95″ sensor, f/1.8 aperture lens, OIS, and 26mm focal length. The secondary camera is a 32MP Sony IMX709 portrait lens with 1/2.74″ sensor, f/2 aperture lens, and 47mm focal length. Lastly, there is an 8MP Sony IMX335 ultra-wide sensor with an f/2.2 aperture lens, 112-degree FOV, and 16mm focal length.

OPPO’s Reno11 5G is a portrait expert with a 32MP portrait lens and pro-grade Portrait Mode and Portrait Expert Engine. We were impressed by the fact that the camera offers two optical points – 24mm and 47mm. This way, whether you are clicking a solo subject or multiple, the separation from the background is brilliant with an aesthetically pleasing bokeh that gives the picture a very natural look. The Portrait Expert Engine helps with various aspects like portrait and ambiance merging, great subject and scene separation, skin tone protection, facial clarity, etc.

We also loved the shots taken by the primary camera with OIS, which were crisp and vibrant no matter the time of the day or the type of shot (handheld or tripod). One thing that stood out in the photos that were captured on the primary camera was the details. The Reno11 5G manages to capture well-detailed pictures, by using the full potential of the 50MP Sony LY600 primary sensor. The fast aperture and OIS ensure that pictures and videos shot using the Reno11 5G always turn out to be super sharp. The primary camera can also record cinematic ultra-clear 4K videos at up to 30fps. The secondary 32MP telephoto lens with in-sensor zoom technology for up to 5x zoom took professional-grade portrait shots during both day and night with a beautiful natural bokeh.

We love both the images and videos shot by the OPPO Reno11 5G. The daylight images are crisp and vibrant, with an accurate dynamic range in most lighting conditions. Thanks to the fast aperture, the camera does not crush the shadows and produces a detailed image even in low light. With more light intake and lower noise, the pictures taken after hours are stunning too. We were also impressed by the clarity of the 4K video shot from both front and rear cameras.

Talking about the selfie prowess of the Reno11 5G, the smartphone lives up to the brand’s reputation. It comes with a 32MP selfie camera with an OmniVision OV32C sensor that captures flattering self and group portraits. The camera can also shoot 4K videos at up to 30fps for high-clarity vlogging. With AI Portrait retouching and a powerful sensor, we could click stunning selfies that are Instagram-worthy right out of the camera.

A Power-Packed Performance

We were impressed with the performance offered by the hardware and software combination of the OPPO Reno11 5G. It is a powerful workhorse with an unparalleled performance in this segment. Despite using multiple applications and a heavy workload there was no lag or jumps. The device operated smoothly and maintained consistent speeds.

We believe the ColorOS 14 based on Android 14 is the cherry on the top. The software offers a stable and lag-free experience. The software has features like Smart Image Matting to create instant JPGs from images to add that personal touch to the chats. The File Dock feature allowed us to drag and drop images or videos on a sidebar and share them across apps. OPPO has also introduced a Smart Touch feature. It allowed us to copy text within the image, which is a very handy feature.

The device comes with Link Boost— OPPO’s self-developed network optimization engine —that combines AI network selection and a 360-degree surround antenna design for the most stable signal possible with minimum downtime. What this essentially translates to is getting back online up to 87 percent faster compared to the competition. We experience stable signals after leaving an elevator, even in a fast-moving vehicle, at crowded markets, and in basement car parking.

The smartphone has the powerful MediaTek Dimensity 7050 SoC at its core for swift multitasking and snappy responsiveness. The 2.6GHz processor is built on the 6nm fabrication, which balances performance and efficiency well. It has two performance and six efficiency cores for smooth performance and impressive power management. With a powerful processor, ample onboard memory, and a stable operating system, you can trust the Reno11 5G with everything but the kitchen sink you throw at it.

We never felt the pinch of RAM shortage because the Reno11 5G offers 8GB RAM and up to 8GB Dynamic RAM with ColorOS 14 Trinity Engine for effective RAM and storage management. The Trinity Engine freed up to 19GB of memory from 128GB/256GB storage. If the device storage gets over, the Reno11 5G also supports expandable storage of up to 2TB using microSD cards.

A Long-Lasting Battery Even with Heavy Usage

We were truly impressed to see the all-day-long battery life of the OPPO Reno11 5G. It has a massive 5,000mAh battery with an impressive capacity retention rate of over 80 percent, even after four years of usage. Then there’s an exclusive Battery Health Engine that optimizes the battery system for long-lasting durability.

What was even more impressive for us is the fact that the Reno11 5G also offers best-in-class 67W SUPERVOOC™ fast charging technology. The phone can swiftly charge to 33 percent in just 10 minutes and 100 percent in 45 minutes. It means we could juice up the device in a jiffy while getting ready in the morning.

A Complete Package and Then Some More

In a nutshell, the OPPO Reno11 5G is a must-buy for those who wish to have an all-immersive viewing experience, unparalleled camera prowess, innovative features, powerful performance, and a fast-charging battery that lasts long – all in one, sleek and stylish package.

So without any delay, pick your OPPO Reno11 5G from Flipkart, OPPO India’s online store, or mainline retail stores.
