Oppo Reno 11 Pro Review; Incremental upgrades for the new mid-range With a brand-new design, bettered cameras and an upgraded processor, does Oppo Reno 11 Pro stand a chance in the Machiavellian decoration member in 2024, which consists substantially of smartphones launched in 2023? I have used Oppo’s rearmost Reno smartphone, and then is what I suppose.

Oppo Reno 11 Pro Review Price in India

The new Reno 11 Pro is priced analogous to last time’s model, at Rs. 39,999. Below it sits the Reno 11, which is priced fromRs. 29,999. Oppo hasn’t brought the Reno 11 Pro( from China) to India, which is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor this time. So, it’s unclear whether last time’s Reno 10 Pro will see a relief or whether we should be awaiting some Find X series action latterly this time to make up for Oppo’s peering void in its decoration member.

The phone is available in two homestretches, Pearl White and Rock Grey. In the box, Oppo provides a USB Type- C to Type- A charging string, an 80W bowl and a transparent TPU case.

Oppo Reno 11 Pro Review Design Just like the model it replaces, the Oppo Reno 11 Pro uses a blend of polycarbonate and glass to achieve this new Pearl White 3D- etched finish, which looks and feels a lot like marble. The 3D twisted glass around the reverse has a unique texture, which looks veritably ultraexpensive, along with the polished camera islet, which protrudes quite a bit from the flat hinder face.

The marble- suchlike finish feels nice to touch and does a fine job of defying dust and fingerprints, keeping the hinder panel clean and smirch-free at all times. I also like the flat textured insert at the top edge of the device, which also houses the visible secondary mic and infrared harborage.

There is a 3D twisted display glass on the front with an AMOLED panel which also curves into the sides by a bit. It has a thin bezel and twisted edges on the left and right sides that make the borders appear thinner than they actually are.

Using a polycarbonate frame also helps reduce the weight of this smartphone. importing in at just 181 grams, the phone is relatively slim, with a consistence of just7.66 mm( if you do not include the camera bump). This thin and light combination, along with its decoration marble- suchlike glass back, the 3D twisted sides of the hinder panel and the display, all advance this smartphone a veritably luxurious hand sense.

The common strike of a matte or soft finish is the lack of grip, and this phone is no different. The device can get really slippery, so it’s judicious to attach the packaged soft TPU case to the box to avoid any damage from accidental drops.

The phone still lacks an sanctioned IP standing but seems to have the necessary seals in place around the SIM card charger. This is a bit disappointing, keeping its price in mind and the fact that other decoration bias like the Samsung Galaxy A54 5G offer a proper IP67 standing. Indeed Xiaomi’s forthcoming Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G also has a proper IP68 standing and is priced lower.

While an IP standing doesn’t guarantee that the manufacturer will service your drenched device free of cost( it all depends on the company’s terms and conditions), it does bring some peace of mind that your device can survive a bit of rain or indeed a drop in a pool, depending on its pukka IP standing.

Oppo Reno 11 Pro Review Specifications and software

Unlike last time’s model, Oppo has switched to MediaTek silicon for its Reno 11 Pro. The phone has a MediaTek Dimensity 8200 SoC, which is erected using the 4nm fabrication process and is offered with 12 GB of LPDDR5X RAM and 256 GB of UFS3.1 storehouse. There is no room for memory expansion, but you do get space for two nano SIM cards with binary 5G buttress.

The phone has a6.7- inch AMOLED panel with a 120Hz dynamic refresh rate and a full- HD resolution laid out in a high 209 aspect rate. There’s an in- display point anthology, and I set up its performance to be dependable during the review period. Connectivity norms include Wi- Fi 6, Bluetooth5.4, NFC, an IR blaster and support for the usual global positioning systems.

Given its slim design, the phone still manages to pack in a 4,600 mAh battery. It can not be charged wirelessly, but Oppo does offer an 80W wired bowl in the box.

Oppo Reno 11 Pro Review; Incremental upgrades for the new mid-range

Oppo Reno 11 Pro

The Reno 11 Pro runs Oppo’s freshest serving of Android 14 in the form of ColorOS 14. While it appears enough much the same as the former interpretation of this software. There are a many minor changes that druggies who are familiar with the software will notice in some places.

There’s a veritably iOS- like global hunt bar that’s now located just above the docked icons at the bottom of the home screen. It’s still not as useful as Google’s hunt( which can find connections, exchanges and further) as it can only find apps installed on the phone or in Oppo’s App Market. Another visible change is the partitions for each item in the Settings menu.

Among the new software features, Oppo has introduced a handy new bone called train wharf. It functions in a manner that’s veritably analogous to the OnePlus Open’s Recent brochure( which is also available in the Smart Sidebar), letting you drag and drop particulars from a select number of supported apps by first opting an item and also long- pressing it to automatically summon the train wharf hole.

Once dragged into the train wharf, the item can be penetrated when demanded and also dragged into any supported app. The point works as anticipated and I could drag all feathers of images and lines between apps, but not all apps will support this gesture.

train wharf will need the Smart Sidebar point to be actuated first and also works well across bias if you be to have another ColorOS 14- powered smartphone or tablet, making the lines magically appear on other bias, handed you have logged into it using the same Oppo account.

Another cool point that works with train wharf is Smart Touch, which principally uses the three- cutlet swipe-down screenshot gesture. formerly in screenshot mode, one has to tap on the ‘ Excerpt content’ button, and also the system principally scans the screenshot for content, which can also be pasted onto train wharf for unborn use in other apps.

Smart Image Matting is yet another point which can pick up cutouts of people or objects from the images in the prints app that can also be pasted into train wharf( or away) for unborn use.

While it’s nice to see some handy new features in ColorOS 14, I was a bit disappointed by the number of preinstalled apps. While utmost of these can be uninstalled, FinShell Pay can not, and the same applies to a number of native apps from Oppo. To make effects worse there are several app doubles present in the app hole, like two messaging apps( dispatches dispatches), two train directors( lines My lines), and two web cybersurfers( Internet Chrome), which can get inviting to those strange with so important bloatware.

Oppo Reno 11 Pro Review Performance

Bloatware away, general software performance on the Oppo Reno 11 Pro is relatively good. Multitasking isn’t a problem, and apps remain in memory for a while as well. As for marks, the phone did perform a lot better than its precursor which was powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778GSoC.

The phone managed a estimable score of points in AnTuTu, along with 1,093 and 3,406 points in Geekbench’s single andmulti-core tests, independently. Graphics performance was also relatively good, but Oppo seems to limit it at 60 fps for all of the three GFXBench test suites we tried out, which included T- Rex, Manhattan3.1 and Auto Chase.

Given the conspicuous performance advancements over the former model, I anticipated the most demanding 3D games to work just OK without any interruptions, indeed at high plates settings, which was a problem with the former model.

Trying out Call of Duty Mobile( CODM), the phone managed smooth and pause-free gameplay with plates set to veritably High and frame rate set to veritably High, but with utmost goods turned off. Turning on all goods redounded in arbitrary cases of pause, with the phone floundering to keep up at times. Touch slice rate was just about fine indeed when used with Oppo’s Championship gaming mode, so this is not the ideal device for playing ferocious FPS games. It was also possible to play CODM at Ultra frame rate settings, but it’s limited to 90 fps.
