2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 13+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Super stylish design - the gradient color on the back adds the touch of flair, and plays with light in interesting ways - and then there is the 'tear-drop' notch - there are no two ways about it, the Vivo V11 is a striking-looking device
  • Being polycarbonate (as opposed to the more common metal/glass designs of today), the phone is pretty light too, and likely more durable over the long term
  • Another key USP of the phone is the in-display fingerprint scanner - it works just fine - although, like other such scanners - it's not quite as fast a physical scanner - but even to include such cutting edge tech on a phone at this price is quite an achievement for Vivo
  • Vivo has improved its infrared face unlocking too, using 1024 facial feature points to unlock your device, even in the dark
  • The V11’s shiny polycarbonate back panel collects fingerprints very quickly

Display

  • Great, tall AMOLED screen, with the tiny teardrop notch - manages to achieve a fantastic 91.3 percent ratio of screen/body - that ensures that even at 6.41 inches of display, the V11 never feels like a large phone - also colors are rich, the contrast is great, the blacks are suitably deep, and the V11 gets plenty bright enough outdoors - there is also an always-on display option in the lock screen settings that you can use

Software

  • Vivo’s FunTouch OS UI is pretty decent, looks a lot like iOS and delivers a lot of additional functionality - including gesture navigation, app privacy, duplicate apps, gesture shortcuts, and custom shortcut for long-pressing the volume down button

Performance

  • Solid all-round performance backed by the efficient Snapdragon 660 and 6GB of RAM - it's butter smooth throughout

Camera

  • Good set of rear dual cameras, especially in daylight (although low light performance is also pretty decent) - the AI chops help, bokeh shots come out good, and overall picture quality is pleasing - all in all, the V11 camera performs admirably for a mid-tier device
  • The selfie camera is good too
  • Video recording is decent but could have been better with image stabilization

Audio

  • The single bottom-firing speaker next to the micro-USB port is loud and sounds pretty decent, with generally crisp, clear highs and decent mids

Battery

  • Very good battery - the 3400mAh battery on the Vivo V11 lasts at least a day, with heavy use, and a day and a half with more moderate use
  • Quick charging support - Vivo’s Dual Engine Fast Charging tech fills the V11 up in less than an hour and a half
  • Micro-USB charging (instead of USB-C) is a bit of an odd thing for a phone that is otherwise on on the cutting edge of tech

More

  • On the whole, in the fiercely competitive mid-range market the V11 manages to have a bunch of stand-out features, and is a pretty strong choice - there's not another phone out there for that price to offer under-display fingerprint scanner and a characteristic waterdrop notch - add those gradient paintjobs in the mix and it makes for a very good all-round phone - the phone will compete with the Oppo F9 Pro (it swaps the OLED for an LCD panel, and doesn't have a in-display scanner, but keeps the waterdrop notch, and is cheaper) - of course, there is also the Poco F1 to consider, and if you value sublime performance over stylish looks, then it's a no brainer - but overall, the V11 Pro is still a very good phone on it's own and one with some surprisingly legitimate A.I. smarts
