Oppo Reno11 5G Review – Mid-Class Device With Good Camera

 Along with the recently launched Oppo Reno11 series, the Oppo Reno11 5G model smartphone also comes with a price offer said to be worth it for a mid-range device. The design is not much different but if tested in terms of software and specifications maybe the difference between Oppo Reno11 5G and Oppo Reno11 Pro 5G can be seen. Therefore, through this review article, I will share the experience of using the Oppo Reno11 5G for a period of one week.

The design of the Oppo Reno11 5G is basically the same as the Oppo Reno11 Pro 5G where there is a camera lens bump on the left side of the back of the device. The lens hump is admittedly quite large with an oval shape that extends downwards and looks a bit strange when compared to the average smartphone design on the market and next to the camera hump there is an LED.

Although it comes with a curved screen design with the sides of the screen slightly at risk of breaking in the event of an impact, it can be protected by installing the frame included in the box at the time of purchase. However, the back body panel of the device is different from the design of the Pro version where it comes with two color options which are Wave Green and Rock Grey.

The device I tested was Wave Green in color with a shade of sea green and a shimmering pattern like sea water under a clear sky.

Next, on the right side of the device is the power button and also the audio adjustment which is easy to reach and comfortable to press. Then on the top there is an infrared transmitter while the hole for charging, SIKM slot and speaker is on the bottom.

There is no 3.5mm audio jack built into the body of the device and the speaker also does not come with the Dolby Atmos system. But overall, Reno11 5G still has a solid build, looks premium, light (182g) and comfortable in the hand with a thickness of only 7.99mm which is very thin. Even after a long period of use, it still feels comfortable in the hand. Any waterproof standards are also not given which makes me feel a bit strange considering that the Realme C67 which is sold at a price below RM1000 passes the IP54 standard.


The 6.7" HDR10+ screen supports a 120Hz refresh rate and can be changed to 'standard' or 'high' settings according to choice and use if necessary. Overall the scrolling and display shown on the screen is smooth without any excessive time gaps. The use of an AMOLED type screen shows that the display quality is satisfactory enough for surfing the web and watching videos.

Despite this, the issue of clarity under the scorching sunlight was still experienced throughout the period of use. The screen is also curved so that the full-screen content display will overflow to the side of the screen. HDR10+ content is also supported allowing HDR content from Youtube and Netflix to be enjoyed without any issues so far.


The optical fingerprint scanner is placed at the bottom of the screen with an easy-to-reach position for scanning even when operating it with one hand. Fingerprint scanning can also be done quickly as long as the fingers are clean and not wet.


The ColorOS 14 operating system is used and it is based on Android 14. Therefore, various latest operating systems with various features available on Android 14 can be enjoyed. Accordingly, there are no serious issues or problems with the use of the device throughout the period of use. Application icons and display layouts look neat and problems such as excessive and annoying fat application loads are not encountered.

The Mediatek Dimensity 7050 processor chip used is quite powerful and equipped with a memory size of 12GB RAM and a storage size of 256GB. During use, the size of 12GB of RAM felt sufficient and able to allow various types of applications to be downloaded and launched simultaneously. If the size of the memory is still insufficient, the extended RAM feature is also provided with the ability to add up to 12GB of RAM. This feature can also be turned off if not needed.

My view regarding the memory size and ROM options provided by Oppo may only be suitable for normal and moderate use where Oppo should also provide 12GB RAM and 512GB storage options because 256GB can now be considered small.

What is more interesting about the ColorOS operating system this time is the presence of the 'Live Activities' notification feature as if it had already been available on the iPhone before. The Aqua Dynamic feature supported by the Grab application will allow users to monitor and track the location of vehicles that are heading to the user's location if making a Grab reservation. However, this feature only works on travel bookings and is not available for food and grocery bookings.


Here are the scores recorded by Oppo Reno 11 5G with Dimensity 7050 after benchmark tests using Geekbench 6, Antutu 3D and 3D Mark Wildlife Extreme were performed. The comparison is made with Realme 11 Pro+ and Honor X9b because each uses a Dimensity 7050 and Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 processor chip which is a mid-range chip and has almost the same price level.

Geekbench 6

Oppo Reno 11 5G – 797/2254

realme 11 Pro+ – 946/2382

Honor X9b – 926/2786

Antutu 3D

Oppo Reno 11 5G – 501800

realme 11 Pro+ – 562446

Honor X9b – 464060

Wild Life Extreme

Oppo Reno 11 5G – 2278

realme 11 Pro+ – cannot be tested

Honor X9b – 2386

The experience of playing first on the device is also good where the application can be opened quickly without having to wait a long time to launch it. Throughout the experience of playing the game using the normal resolution rate everything was very smooth and without problems. But when the resolution rate is increased to the highest level, the lag issue can be felt for several minutes after the first play.

Overall the ability is still good and the errors encountered are not critical or too disappointing. In my opinion if you are not a beginner gamer with high graphics requirements, the Reno11 5G is not for you because the performance of the Dimensity 7050 is only 25% of the performance of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 used in the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra and iQOO 12.


The main camera system consists of a 50MP wide-angle lens, a 32MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom and an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens. The selfie camera is 32MP. Daytime shots using the device's primary camera are good with vivid detail. In terms of color for shots in open areas as well as lighting that is too bright, the results of the photos appear a little faded compared to photos taken in closed spaces such as in a house or room with the results of photos and colors with a higher contrast value. Color saturation also stands out more with just enough lighting.

32MP for telephoto makes the picture detail with 2x optical zoom neat with detail that I can say is excellent. But, the rate of zoom ability that is more than that makes the picture taken no longer sharp enough.

But what I love about the camera capabilities of this device is the portrait feature available to make the photos taken look beautiful. However, the ability to capture portrait mode photos is not consistent because in some cases it fails to distinguish between the object and the background. In terms of color, there is no problem where the background color and also the subject are well differentiated and the color of science is not exaggerated.

The front camera with 32MP also provides clear and beautiful selfie results but the colors are slightly faded making the face look a bit pale. Overall, for a mid-range device I can say that the Reno11 5G has good camera capabilities and does not disappoint even though it is not perfect in some situations but the emphasis seems to be less on the front camera capabilities.


The device also comes with a battery capacity of 5000 mAh which in my opinion is a large enough battery capacity to last a day in normal usage. The time period for full charging takes around 45 minutes with the 67W charging support that is also included in the purchase.


The stereo speakers of the device are quite good and satisfactory even though it does not come with Dolby Atmos feature. To praise it excessively is not appropriate but the volume and clarity of the sound can still be played well while providing a satisfying listening experience. The 3.5 mm audio jack hole is also missing from the body and requires me to wear wireless earphones if I don't want to listen to audio directly from the speakers.

In conclusion, Oppo Reno11 5G is a mid-range device that feels compatible with the price and also the performance provided. Overall the experience throughout the period of use was good and smooth and no serious issues had to be faced. The focus is clearly on the camera's capabilities, which are better than other devices in the same class.

It's just the curved screen which in my opinion is more at risk if hit and the overflowing content on the sides only makes the video watching experience a bit of an error. The capabilities of the camera and the capabilities of the processor chip also complement the sophistication of this device. The price offered is RM1899 for 12/256 GB memory.
