Reno 11F

Oppo Reno 11F review; Good performance and battery life

OPPO launched the Reno 11F 5G smartphone in the Kenyan market sometime last month. The device is an addition to the Oppo Reno 11 series which was launched earlier in the year.

We managed to get our hands on the Reno 11F 5G which we took out for a spin, and these are our thoughts.


The Reno 11F 5G measures 6.34 x 2.94 x 0.30 inches and weighs about 177 grams, I generally found it to be comfortable in the hand. It comes with a polycarbonate back that has a matte finish giving the phone a premium look.

The Reno 11F 5G comes with a 6.7 -inch AMOLED Display screen with slim bezels giving the phone a screen-to-body ratio of approximately 89.8 per cent. It has a high definition 1080 X 2412 resolution, 20:9 aspect ratio which translates to 394 pixels per inch density. This coupled with a 120 Hertz refresh rate gives you a crisp display that you will definitely enjoy.

The screen has Panda glass cover for protection, and it is also has a IP65 rating for dust and splash resistance. It has a screen protector out of the box, which will at least protect the device from scratches.

The selfie camera is located at the top of the screen with the top edge featuring a stereo speaker, microphone and infrared port, the right edge features the volume up and down rocker and a power button. The bottom of the phone holds a sim tray that can house two nano-SIM cards, a microSD card expansion slot, a stereo speaker, Type C charging port and a microphone.


The phone is powered by a Mediatek Dimensity 7050 processor, the chipset is built on a 6 nm process node technology and has a maximum CPU frequency of 2.6 GHz. For gaming, it uses the Mali-G68 MC4 GPU which is adequate for games which are not very graphic intensive.

It has 256GB of internal storage and 8 GB of RAM and Android’s virtual memory extension that enables the phone to increase RAM by an extra 8GB by taking space from the storage.  Given these specs, I did not experience any lag while using the phone be it while streaming, switching between apps or even playing games like PUGB and Asphalt 9.

The Reno 11F 5G runs on the Android 14 operating system straight out of the box and a ColorOS 14 interface.


Oppo Reno 11F 5G comes with a triple camera setup at the back, 64MP wide+ 8MP ultrawide+ 2MP macro and the 32MP selfie camera with HDR to create some visually appealing photographs which are sharp and detailed.

The phone comes with Night mode for those instances when you have low light conditions. There is a tripod mode within the Night mode that uses longer exposure for better results. Pro mode enables you to play around with settings like ISO, exposure, white balance, manual focus, and shutter speed for the perfect photo.

It also rocks other features such as Portrait, Panorama, Slow Motion, Time Lapse and Text Scanner ensuring that smartphone photography enthusiasts are spoilt for choice. What’s more, the main and selfie camera can shoot videos in 4K up to 30 frames per second.

The Reno 11F 5G features a 5000 mAh non-removable battery supported by an 67Watt flash charging power brick. This means that it can fully charge the device in just under 50 minutes which can be convenient on a busy day.

A user gets a full day’s heavy use from a fully charged battery, so everything from listening to music, to reading and browsing as well as gaming is possible.


The Reno 11F 5G is a definite buy if you are looking for a phone with good performance, battery life and awesome cameras. The Reno 11F 5G is retailing at Ksh. 49,999.
