OPPO R11F header

The OPPO Reno11 F 5G 2024 is a class-leading mid-range at a decent price. It has a 10-bit OLED screen, decent camera, good battery life, a 67W fast charger inbox and a 2+2+3 warranty/OS update/patch policy.

However, Reno fanatics may be confused as this is not a replacement for the popular Reno10. It is made to meet a price point. To put that in perspective, some parts of the world also get the higher-speced Reno11 Pro and Reno11. If you are interested, there is a basic specs comparison here.

For the most part, it is pretty good—5000mAh battery, 67W fast charger inbox (so many brands are charging more for that), solid tri-camera, 6.7” 120Hz 10-bit OLED screen (many use an 8-bit screen at this price point), decent MediaTek 7050 SoC, and 8/256GB.


OPPO even claims some AI generative AI for its photo processing. That includes AI Eraser, Portrait Professional, and Portrait Retouching.

Let’s say there are no downsides, but it has a mono-speaker, which is for clear voice only. So, use earphones for music.

New review format

We are experimenting with our review format. Where we used to put all the raw data in tables at the end, we will now break them up and briefly comment on the various parts. Why? Readers who want to know more will paw over the tables. Readers who wish to see if it’s a good phone can just read the comments. Of course, we still have CyberShack’s’ View and rating explanation at the end – do make sure you read that.

We use Fail (below expectations), Pass (meets expectations) and Exceed (surpasses expectations or is the class leader) against many of the items below. We occasionally give a Pass(able) rating that is not as good as it should be and a Pass ‘+’ rating to show it is good but does not quite make it to Exceed. You can click on most images for an enlargement.

We are also tightening up on grading. From now on, Pass, for example, means meeting expectations for the price bracket. We consider a Pass mark to be 70+/100 with extra points added for class-leading and excellence.

OPPO Reno11 F 5G 2024 First impression – Pass+

I love the shimmering Palm Green, but most will buy the magnetic particle finish Ocen Blue. It is nice that OPPO has used Panda Glass (Twice reinforced) for screen protection. In all, it feels great in-hand at 177g and is the perfect size/width with its 20:9 screen.

Screen – Passs+

A $599 phone with a 10-bit/1.07 billion colour screen leaves the Samsung A-series for dead. It is bright (1100 nits peak), colourful (100% sRGB and DCI-P3) and has a very high-frequency pulse width modulation (PWM) at 2160Hz that will not bother even the most sensitive PWM sufferer.

Comment This is a city and suburbs phone and reflects the MediaTek modem. OPPO’s new LinkBoost delivers up to 100% faster transmission power and 58.5% stronger reception, combining AI network selection and a 360-degree surround antenna (no visible antenna bars) or a stable signal and minimum downtime.

Battery – Pass+

This has excellent battery life, with 21 hours of video loop and 54 minutes of fast charge time. It is also quite an energy-efficient SoC under load.

The 67W SUPERVOOC charger is overkill, as the phone never charges above 9V/3A/27W. The charger outputs two channels of up to 11V/3A/33W each for OPPO phones with dual batteries. This uses a single LIPo pouch battery and only takes one charge.

Typical users will easily get two days of use, and power users well over 24 hours.

Comment The battery capacity retention rate is more than 80% after four years of use at a full charge-discharge once a day.

Sound – Mono – Pass

Perhaps the only downside is mono sound. When using it as a phone, the earpiece works, and when playing music or hands-free, the bottom speaker works. If you want to play music, use earphones.

How does it sound? – Passable

It is not fair to run frequency tests on mono devices, as their sole purpose is clear voice. But we did it anyway.

Deep Bass 20-40Hz Nil
Middle Bass 40-100Hz Nil
High Bass 100-200Hz Slow build to 1kHz
Low Mid 200-400Hz Slow build to 1kHz

Mid Treble 4-6kHz Steep decline to 8kHz
High Treble 6-10kHz Flat to 12 kHz
Dog Whistle 10-20kHz Steep decline to 20kHz
Sound Signature type Mid-centric for clear voice. It lacks all the important bass, which makes it muddy, and missing all the important treble means there is little character and directionality. In short, it is dull and thin for music.
   Soundstage Mono
Comment Suitable for voice but not for music

Build – Pass+

OPPO consistently punches above its weight on phone finishes, and this is no different. I love the Palm Green for its subtly shimmering finish. But most will go for the Ocean Blue with its magnetic particle finish. We found a teardown that shows how OPPO’s sandwich design is very easy to repair. OPPO also torture tests its phones to ensure a long life.

OS – Pass+ for ColorOS and Fail for bloatware.

The more I use ColorOS, the more I find it one of the easiest Android overlays to use. There are no buried menus (like Samsung UI) and a more logical settings menu. It is quite a light overlay on Android 14, and you will get 15 and 16 and three years of security patches.

However, my FAIL is more in protest at the enormous amount of bloatware it pre-loads. Fortunately, this now comes as a selectable option on the first install, and all are fully uninstallable.

Privacy can be an issue if you sign in for an OPPO (HeyTap) account. However, you do not need to do this; only use its App Market, Theme Store, and Game Centre. In any case, OPPO Global does not own OPPO Australia, and it stores all Australian data in a Singapore cloud.

We strongly suggest using Google Apps anyway, as it makes swapping to a new Android phone very easy. Even with this, you should review App permissions and only enable those it needs.

OPPO Reno11 F 5G 204 rear camera – Pass+

OPPO Reno11 F 5G 2024

It is a tri-camera – 64MP bins to 12.5MP, 8MP ultra-wide and 2MP Macro. If you add OPPO’s long-standing photography AI prowess, you get an exceptional camera for the price bracket. It has a 32MP selfie that bins to 8MP.

We will let the images show you the quality, but we were impressed with HDR in shadows and highlights. Its 10X digital zoom was clear (unlike many other smartphones), and it had excellent low-light and night shots.

One of our pet hates is inaccurate image preview – it happens on almost every 8-bit screen. OPPO’s 10-bit screen was colour-accurate – 10 points.

Video can be 4K@30fps but the sweet spot is 1080p@30fos with electronic image stabilisation. It has one of the better focus locks (locks onto a moving person or object).

It is a class-leading point-and-shoot camera.

CyberShack’s view – OPPO Reno11 F 5G 2024 is class-leading in most areas

I like the screen, battery life, charger inbox, camera, OPPOs build, hand feel, and 2+2+3 warranty/OS/security policy. My only disappointment is a mono speaker, but everyone uses earphones these days.

If $599 (which includes the charger) is your budget, go for it.


$599 Motorola Edge 50 Fusion (not reviewed yet) with Qualcomm SD7s Gen 2 and 12/256GB. It should have Qualcomm’s famed phone reception.

$599 NOTHING Phone 2a (not reviewed yet) with MediaTek 7200 Pro 12/256GB.

$549 Samsung A35 5G 128GB Exynos processor Samsung A35 5G 2024 – lots of great features at a low price (OPPO has a better display and camera)

$649 Samsung A55 5G 128GB Exynos processor Samsung A55 5G 2024 – this is the Samsung to get (OPPO has a better display and camera)

OPPO Reno11 F 5G 2024 ratings

Ratings New 2024 ratings – 70 is a base pass mark.
Features 80
This is not the successor to the Reno 10 5G – more of a pared-down version to bring it in at a price.
Value 80
It is good value with a 10-bit OLED screen
Performance 75
It meets or exceeds what is expected at this price.
Ease of Use 80
Its 2+2+3 warranty/OS/security is quite good.
Design 80
It’s sleek, and I love the rear panel colours. I’m taken with Palm Green, but Blue will be more popular.
Rating out of 10 79
Final comment If you were expecting the next Reno 10 5G, it is not. This is an economic model that meets or exceeds those expectations.
1 Good battery life and 67W fast charger inbox – most brands don’t include a charger
2 Bright/colour-accurate/120Hz, 10-bit OLED screen
3 Excellent quality build and 2+2+3-year warranty with local support
4 Front and rear cameras are excellent for point-and-shoot day or night.
5 Hybrid Micro-SD and virtual RAM expansion.
1 IP65 is better than nothing, but it is just splashproof
2 Mono sound – not class-leading
