The OPPO Reno 11 F is part of the Reno11 family of device which the Reno11 F marks one of the latest in the line up. Based on the specs alone, this is targeted towards those who wanted a balanced of casual photography in mind, but still can uphold in terms of daily performance.

We will just have a quick review on it, since we have covered the OPPO Reno11 Pro before, including the software and core features, so here goes my overview, results and verdict.


The OPPO Reno11 F goes on a similar approach when compared to it’s higher end Reno11 series. First off it just have some minimal changes to it, especially on the material, the Reno11 F uses a simpler Natural Aesthetic Design but still elegant when looked at it with the marble like design with texture that is smooth to the touch with an exchange of a downside, fingerprint magnet for sure, which is why OPPO provided a translucent casing for that reason.

I am OK with the overall material being used since this is meant to be slated as an affordable mid tier category range of devices and sure enough, they hit their objective there with some beauty that does attract some of the segments with IP65 Water and Dust Resistance rating, showing some durability too.

Display & Audio

Borderless dynamic 120Hz AMOLED, HDR10+ certified, Widewine L1 certified and 100% sRGB coverage are the highlight in this department. These feature alone are enough to tell someone that is actually above decent for the price point. Apart from that it can also peak up to 1000nits in brightness which is visible even under bright sunlight and while it can show things up with good color accuracy and contrast on most media consumption and navigating the browser, the twice-reinforced Panda Glass keep the display safe and sound, able to resist light drops, although such glass is not the top of it’s class, but still it can offer some sort of protection.

You get some and you may miss some, although the OPPO Reno11 F sounds good for the most part, it lacks stereo firing speaker which isn’t really a bummer, since it still can offer good audio ranges from multiple music genre we tested, and our experience is still pretty good for a single speaker setup. On top of that you still can use your own USB C headphones or Bluetooth earbuds, along with some OReality customizable equalizer settings.


The camera setup in the OPPO Reno11 F can be termed as decent and at most situations, able to perform as a compelling point for the phone. Let’s get in to some of the key specifications. For starters it has a 64MP main lens with PDAF, 8MP Wide Lens and 2MP Macro Lens. Front Camera wise, it has a 32MP wide angle camera which can take wide angle selfie images.

Now on to our finding and the experience. The OPPO Reno11 F is able to take on well during day time without much effort, and it is fun to use although a slight downside is missing the OIS capability to start. However that being said so long you have steady hands, good lighting and the results is as good as any similar tier mid rangers out there with the additional AI features that could make post processing better by analyzing surroundings effectively, this happens when photo is being taken and after its being taken. Since I mention about the lightning, during night time, it can perform as long there has to be some light surrounding it, and for the most part it does able to perform as it is, with some noises in the images here and there and pixelation is minimal. I have not much complain over the portrait mode, works well out of the box up to 2x zoom

Video camera recording can go up to 4K at 30FPS and it is indeed able to capture good footage with some stutters towards certain fast movements on subjects, and should you need an absolute smoothness, 1080P 60FPS is there for capturing higher frame rate video with better stabilization and good pacing.

Performance summary and Benchmarks

I will keep things short here, the OPPO Reno11 F is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 7050, which is a rebadged, slightly improved version of the Dimensity 1080 along with 12GB of LPDDR4X RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage with option for expanding storage via MicroSD Card slot, should you expand your space you will also lose the 2nd SIM Slot since OPPO made it as a shared slot, but for the most part, it should be sufficient.

As of the experience and battery life, the supplied 5000mAh battery can easily lasts you more than a day even if you are using it mostly for all your social photography as a main shooter phone along with all your usual activities as a typical smartphone user. OPPO still supply a 67W SuperVOOC charger in the box (which most manufacturer stops doing that) and with that said, it can charge up to full in less than 1 hour. Android 14 with ColorOS 14 is there same as the Reno11 Series and Find N3 series, and if you want to know more about ColorOS 14, Click Here to find out since I have covered it before.

Benchmark shows that there is some slight improvement from the original Dimensity 1080 and on par with most of the mid tier phones out there.

Verdict & Conclusion


The OPPO Reno11 F is fun to use, lightweight and still maintain most of the bells and whistles that it’s higher end Reno11 Pro features had in mind. In the end of the day the Reno11 F only lacks a few hardware stuffs here and there but with a price tag of RM1399, I am still quite amazed that OPPO is able to just compromise a little, and my view and experience on this device is still worth a shot to take on judging on the balance on it’s aesthetics, specifications and some take on the rear camera capabilities, again I will comment once more, you don’t really lose much by choosing this phone.
