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
  • Beautiful, attractive, premium glass design (Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and back - a first for Realme), with a modern gradient finish at the back
  • The phone is also marginally smaller than the Realme X and is lighter too at 183 grams, which gives it a very balanced in-hand feel
  • The glass on the back is of the glossy kind, but it barely registers any fingerprints or smudges and it isn't very reflective
  • The in-display fingerprint sensor is snappy as is the facial recognition
  • Very good 6.4-inch FHD+ (1080x2340) Super AMOLED display with a dewdrop notch - it has vibrant colours, deep blacks, good sunlight legibility, and good viewing angles - one of the best displays of this price range
  • Also comes with Widevine L1 standard, which means videos on platforms like Netflix and Prime can be seen in crisp HD resolution
  • ColorOS is now more streamlined than before, and packs fast animations that helps the phone feel snappy - there are of course a number of add-on features too, compared to what you would get in stock Android
  • The UI also isn't ad-strewn as recent Xiaomi phones have tended to be
  • Very good performance backed by the powerful Snapdragon 712, which is one of the better mid-range mobile SoCs out there, especially for gaming - the Realme XT is able to run graphically intensive games like PUBG on default high graphics without breaking a sweat - of course day-to-day use is a breeze too
  • Thermal management is good too - the phone remains quite cool throughout gaming sessions
  • Excellent quad camera setup at the rear - 64MP primary + 8MP ultra-wide + 2MP macro + 2MP depth sensor - this is the first phone to launch in India with a 64MP sensor
  • Much like the popular 48MP sensor, the 64MP camera also works (by default) on a 4-in-1 pixel binning technology that combines four 16MP shots to offer one bright and detailed photo
  • The primary camera capture some really attractive photos in daylight, offering good brightness and clarity - with HDR enabled, the camera offers a wide dynamic range
  • The ultra wide-angle camera comes in handy if you want to capture a wider frame of view or want a different perspective on the subject (but there is some noise even in daylight conditions)
  • The camera also supports Nightscape (Night mode), which comes in handy in low-light conditions, and helps improve picture clarity
  • The Realme XT also does a good job when using Portrait mode - edge detection is excellent thanks to the dedicated 2-megapixel depth sensor and details are crisp
  • Decent video recording performance - image quality is good, and there is also stabilization at 1080p (but not at 4k)
  • Overall, this is now arguably the new camera champ of the under 20k category, coming out a bit ahead of the current leaders pack - the Realme 5 Pro, the Realme X, and the Redmi Note 7 Pro
  • Good speaker - verbal audio sounds clear enough even in max volume, and the audio is loud enough for you to hear the phone ring from another room
  • Very good battery life with a large 4000mAh battery - you will get about 1.5 days of moderate use
  • There is VOOC 3.0 fast charging support, which is great - you can charge up the Realme XT in about 80 minutes
  • Once again, like clockwork, Realme has launched another champion phone with the XT, that sets the benchmark for mid-range phones even higher
  • But more broadly, you won't go wrong with either of the current leading 3 Realme phones - Realme 5 Pro (cheapest, Snapdragon 712, but not a premium glass design, not a 'full-screen' display, not an AMOLED display), Realme X (pop-up selfie, and 'full-screen' AMOLED experience, but not a premium glass design, and 'only' Snapdragon 710), or the Realme XT (premium glass design, AMOLED display, best camera of the lot by a small margin, Snapdragon 712, but not a 'full-screen' display) - and you can chose one depending on your priorities
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
  • There is as usual some bloatware that comes pre-installed (but most of it can be uninstalled)
  • The macro lens is ordinary - you will be able to get really close to the subject, but detail levels in the images are low
