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 4000mAh 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
  • Gorgeous design, with some eye-catching color combinations for the (plastic) back panel
  • Very good build quality and finish
  • Fast fingerprint sensor, and face unlock
  • Good 6.3inch IPS panel, with a small dewdrop notch, and minimal bezels - it's sharp, decently bright, has high contrast, and accurate colors
  • Media playback is handled well, and videos are rendered with punchy colours
  • ColorOS 6 UI has a new, cleaner look, and is quite feature packed, including plenty of motion and screen gestures
  • Thankfully, unlike, its main competitor, the Redmi Note 7 Pro, there are no spammy ads in the UI
  • Class leading performance (especially in terms of GPU) with a Snapdragon 710 at the core - everything from daily use to complex games like PUBG is a breeze
  • The phone also doesn't heat too much even after prolonged gaming sessions
  • Excellent camera package - mostly on par with the leading camera phone of this price bracket, the Redmi Note 7 Pro
  • Packs the 16-megapixel Sony IMX519 sensor with an f/1.7 aperture - this is the same sensor used in some premium phones such as the OnePlus 6T - there's also a secondary 5-megapixel depth sensor for the phone's Portrait mode
  • In daylight, the the Realme 3 Pro captures very good details in landscape shots
  • Macros are sharp and well detailed too
  • The phone's AI scene recognition is quick to recognise most common objects such as flowers
  • Night photography is pretty decent too - and the the phone's Nightscape mode comes in handy here - it takes a second or two longer than usual to capture your shot, but the end result is a sharper image with much better detail
  • The depth sensor does a very good job with edge detection, and even in low light, you can get a very pleasing bokeh effect
  • Good 25-megapixel selfie camera too - selfies from the Realme 3 Pro pack a lot of detail and noise is kept in check - colors are excellent as well
  • Selfie portraits are quite good too, even though they don't get the benefit of a dedicated depth sensing camera - subject separation is very competent, there are no clipped ears and blur is natural-looking as well
  • Good video recording performance too - with good overall footage quality, and nice color reproduction
  • The single speaker gets loud enough for media playback
  • Excellent battery life - the combination of a large 4045mAh battery pack, an efficient processor, and Realme's optimizations means that this an easy 2-days battery life phone, even beating out (slightly) the excellent Redmi Note 7 Pro in battery life tests
  • Super fast VOOC fast charging using the bundled charger is again class-leading - it can top up the battery from zero all the way to 90 percent in about an hour
  • Overall, the Realme 3 Pro is absolutely great bang-for-the-buck, and is pretty neck-to-neck with the other top phone in this price bracket - the Redmi Note 7 Pro - while the Redmi Note 7 has a more premium glass build, and the modern USB Type-C port, the Realme 3 Pro has an edge in terms of a bundled fast charger, a slightly better processor, and cleaner (ad-free) software
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
  • Realme continues to pre-install quite a few third-party apps such as a Webnovel, NewsPoint, ShareChat, etc (though most of them can be uninstalled)
  • Video stabilization at 1080p could have been better though
  • Uses the old microUSB port, instead of the modern USB Type-C port
