2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Simply one of the best designed smartphones all around in the sub-Rs 25, 000 price segment
  • Sturdy and well built - the overall chassis looks so rigid that it is hard to distinguish it from the most premium flagship phones
  • Uses an aluminum mid-frame while the back panel is plastic that has been textured to give it the effect of a beautiful rich gradient finish
  • The design takes precedent not only on the back but also at the front - the Oppo F11 Pro has a stunning all screen, immersive design that does not have a notch or hole punch cut-out at the front - the Oppo F11 Pro's pop-up camera liberates space at the top of the display for a sleek, modern look
  • Very good 6.5-inch LCD screen with full-HD+ resolution - it is crisp and has good viewing angles - you also get the option to tweak the colour output of the display as per your liking
  • ColorOS 6 is certainly better than before, and Oppo has taken an approach that is like what Samsung did with its One UI recently - the whole user interface has been tweaked to resonate with Google’s Material Design with large white surfaces around every nook and corner
  • Other useful features include a gesture based UI, a new app drawer, and a specialized Game Space mode
  • Good overall performance with a solid Helio P70 at the core (similar to Snapdragon 660/675) - everything runs smoothly including complex graphics games like PUBG
  • Good set of dual rear cameras at the back - there is a 48-megapixel main camera paired with a 5-megapixel depth sensor
  • In daylight, Oppo F11 Pro takes images that are quite natural with even dynamic range and saturated colors
  • In the night, where you use Night Mode, the result is extremely bright (though not very accurate)
  • The portrait mode puts the secondary sensor to use to distinguish between subjects and backgrounds, and adds a good bokeh effect
  • Video recording is good too, and image stabilisation is available which helps deliver video without a lot of shakiness
  • Of course, the hero here is the unique pop-up selfie camera experience - the image quality from the front camera is good too, and it includes a powerful beauty mode
  • Very good battery life with a 4020mAh battery - will give you up to 1.5 days of use
  • Supports VOOC fast charging standard, which is quite good - you will go from 0 to 46 percent in 30 minutes
  • Oppo F11 Pro is a a great, premium-looking, all-round device if you seek differentiation - this is a phone that should be seen for its beautiful design and engineering and not specifications
  • Attractive, eye-catching glossy plastic rear panel with a beautiful multi-coloured gradient finish, that catches the light as you tilt the phone around
  • The front is sharp and modern with a 6.54-inch Full HD+ display, thin bezels, and a punch-hole camera on the top-left corner of the display
  • On the whole, the Z1 Pro is arguably the best designed phone of this price segment
  • Has a handy dedicated Google Assistant button
  • Large, sharp Full HD+ display, with good viewing angles, and sunlight legibility - you get an immersive experience while watching videos, playing games and consuming other multimedia content on it
  • Vivo's Funtouch OS UI is fairly feature packed, and aesthetically is similar to iOS
  • There is also now a ‘Dark Mode’ feature that turns almost all the popular apps dark
  • The Vivo Z1 Pro also has a gaming assistant and mode rolled into one called Game Cube - it offers functions like blocking background calls, blocking notifications, reject calls during gaming, turning on Esports Mode and other things
  • Excellent, class-leading performance with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 processor - you will get snappy performance all-round, and even high-end games will run effortlessly in their 'high graphics' settings
  • The smartphone also has good temperature control, so even with long times of gaming, there isn't much heating up
  • Good set of triple rear cameras (16-megapixel primary camera + 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera + 2-megapixel depth sensor)
  • You get some pretty detailed photos in most lighting conditions - the color reproduction and balancing is quite accurate as well
  • On the front, it comes with a excellent 32-megapixel snapper, which again does very well with details
  • Overall, this is a good camera setup for the price bracket, and only a bit behind the top cameras of the Redmi Note 7 Pro, and the Realme 3 Pro
  • Excellent battery life, with a huge 5000mAh battery - you will get a comfortable 2 days even with heavier use
  • Fast charging support - the device goes from 0 to 100% in 2 hours - which is pretty decent for the battery size
  • The Z1 Pro looks like a smart winner from the Vivo camp, with hardly any flaws, and an excellent performance to price ratio - if you value performance in a phone, or are into gaming, this is the mid-range phone to get - if you are looking for the best possible cameras instead, then the Redmi Note 7 Pro, and Realme 3 Pro have a slight advantage
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Slightly on the heavy side
  • Overall though, it's still not quite as clean as a stock Android UI, or quite as refined as the MIUI
  • Of course, adding a mechanical component adds the risk of early product failure - it is a moving mechanism and could get damaged by drops or by dust and grime getting into it (although Oppo does claim it's been tested well to avoid such long term issues)
  • No 4K video recording support
  • Uses the old Micro-USB port, instead of the modern USB-C standard
  • Having said that, there is a lot of great competition around - the Redmi Note 7 offers a faster processor at a much lower price, the Poco F1 and the Zenfone 5Z offer a much faster processor and more bang for the buck at a similar price
  • The Oppo F11 Pro also faces competition from a pretty similar pop-up selfie camera device, the V15 Pro, which is a bit more expensive but provides a more versatile camera experience, and a slightly better processor
  • Overall, the F11 Pro makes sense if you are looking for the novelty of a pop-up selfie camera or a 'true' full-screen design, and prioritise looks over other factors - if not, then you have better choices around
  • On the heavy and bulky side (thanks to the large battery it packs)
  • The display does not have a Widevine L1 certification - as a result, you can stream videos available on the over-the-top platforms such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Videos at a maximum resolution of only 480p — not HD or fullHD
  • For people who like a stock Android interface though, Funtouch OS may not be to their taste (once again, it's more iOS like in its aesthetic, and also packs some bloatware)
