The recently released OPPO Reno 11 series continues to explore the ability to shoot portraits, shouting the slogan of “SLR-level portraits, what you see is what you want”. The protagonist that IGeekPhone is going to test now is this OPPO Reno 11 Pro.
1. Top flagship technology devolves Reno’s best screen ever
Since recent generations, OPPO has continued to delegate many technologies from its top flagship Find series to the Reno series.
OPPO Reno11 Pro uses the same dynamic light and shadow screen as Find X6. It also has photon matrix display technology and Pro XDR technology. It can be said that it is the best screen in the history of the Reno series.
2. 2X focal length is the only standard feature in the entire series within 3,000 yuan.
This time OPPO Reno11, including the Pro model, is equipped with a 32-megapixel SLR-level portrait lens.
The equivalent focal length of this lens is 47mm, which is one of the most classic portrait focal lengths for professional cameras. It has a distortion-free viewing angle close to that of the human eye and is very suitable for shooting full-body, half-body, and close-up portraits.
Moreover, the 2x SLR-level portrait lens equipped in the OPPO Reno 11 series can be said to be the only standard mobile phone for models under 3,000 yuan.
Next, let’s take a look at how OPPO Reno11 Pro performs.
Design & Appearance
OPPO Reno 11 Pro uses a 6.74-inch 3D hyperboloid screen with a resolution of 2772×1240, 445PPI, 120Hz refresh rate, supports three-speed 60/90/120 intelligent dynamic switching, peak brightness up to 1600nit, and 2160Hz high-frequency PWM adjustment Light, eye protection can also be taken into account in dark environments.
OPPO’s own photon matrix display technology is worth mentioning. Unlike the HDR mode on other models that improve global brightness, this display technology records 12 million “photon dots” information that describes the light and shadow information of the screen when taking photos. , increase the brightness of the part beyond SDR, fully restore the light ratio and dynamic range of the shooting scene, and bring a more realistic viewing effect. It can achieve up to 8 times of brightness excitation, while ordinary solutions can often only achieve 4 -5 times.
The color of OPPO Reno11 Pro is inspired by four gemstones with different brilliance. This obsidian black color scheme, as the name suggests, is inspired by obsidian, which can show a unique shining light at different angles and when the light changes. OPPO Reno 11 Pro continues its thin and light gene, and the middle frame is further narrowed. The 74mm handshake curve design brings a more fitting holding experience. It is only 8.19mm thick and weighs about 190g, which fits perfectly in the hand. There is no obvious falling feeling, and it is more friendly to users with small hands.
OPPO Reno11 Pro has a 32-megapixel super-sensitive cat-eye lens on the front, which supports an RGBW pixel array, which can further increase the amount of light.
OPPO Reno11 Pro divides the three rear lenses into two oval modules. Above is a 50-megapixel main camera and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and below is a 32-megapixel SLR-level portrait camera.
The top and bottom are equipped with conventional microphones, speakers, SIM card slots, USB-C jacks, etc., and the infrared rays of the previous generation are also retained. The package comes with a gray soft case, charging head, data cable, instructions, and card pins.
In addition to the main 32-megapixel SLR portrait camera, OPPO Reno 11 Pro’s rear image also forms a three-camera combination with a 50-megapixel main camera + an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, covering four focal lengths of 0.6x, 1x, 2x, and 5x to satisfy users It can perfectly handle the shooting needs of most scenes, whether you want to shoot objects or people.
Thanks to the 47mm focal length of the portrait lens, the perspective effect is more natural, allowing users to ignore the cluttered background and bringing a more convenient composition experience. Even if you don’t know how to take portraits, it can ensure that you can easily take pictures.
Even in a backlit environment, the blur effect of the background is natural enough, there is no problem of wireless accidental damage to the edges of hair, and there is no overexposure problem on the main body of the character.
It does not simply and crudely raise the dark parts, but uses its own super light and shadow image engine to capture more light and accurately restore the true light and shadow relationship based on algorithms, making the portraits more natural.
Even if you turn on beauty, it will maximize the texture of the skin and the details of clothing, accessories, and scenes, without producing the flat feeling produced by the beauty camera, making portrait photos look more three-dimensional and vivid.
It should be noted that the 32MP SLR-level portrait camera will only be called in the portrait 2x mode. In this mode, the background space can be further compressed to highlight the subject of the character.
Thanks to the 1/1.56 sensor, F/1.8 large aperture, and OIS optical image stabilization, the yield rate of casual shots is still quite high.
When the shooting environment is well-lit, the first impression of the shooting style is that it is eye-catching, and the color palette is also full of “OPPO flavor”, which is transparent enough without appearing too saturated.
OPPO Reno11 Pro also has excellent resolution when shooting at night, without obvious noise or smearing, and the ghosting and glare problems of some flagship phones. However, it is recommended to avoid extremely low-light environments to increase the chance of producing photos.
Super wide angle
If you need to take photos of wide scenery or magnificent buildings, don’t worry. The ultra-wide-angle lens is very suitable. Although it has only 8 million pixels, its color-matching style is consistent with that of the main camera. If you don’t look closely, Almost the same as the main camera.
Hardware and Performance
As for the core hardware, OPPO Reno 11 Pro is equipped with a full version of the Snapdragon 8+ flagship chip using a 4nm process technology, supplemented by LPDDR5X memory and UFS 3.1 flash memory. It also uses aerospace-grade superconducting graphite for heat dissipation to improve thermal conductivity. 33%, theoretically the performance release level will be better.
We received the 12GB+256GB version. OPPO Reno 11 Pro scored 1,395,377 points on AnTuTu V10.
GeekBench 6, a one-way CPU test, achieved single-core scores of 1814 and multi-core scores of 4607.
In GFXBench, a one-way GPU test, Manhattan 3.1 can reach 180 FPS off-screen, and T-Rex can reach 450 FPS off-screen.
Judging from various results, the results of OPPO Reno11 Pro are the performance that Snapdragon 8+ should have.
For games, we use “Genshin Impact” for testing to check the frame rate, power consumption, and other performance of OPPO Reno 11 Pro games.
In the hardware killer “Genshin Impact”, we changed the image quality to extremely high, and based on this, changed the frame rate to 60 frames.
During the game, we will use the skills of the characters Yelan and Zaoyou to move quickly in the main city of Fontaine and conduct random running tests.
It should be noted that since the firmware we tested is a beta version, the default balanced mode locks the game frame rate at 45 FPS. Therefore, you need to manually change to e-sports mode in the game assistant and unlock the game frame rate to 60 FPS.
After 10 minutes of testing, the front game curve fluctuated slightly and stabilized to 50 FPS in the second half. The final result was an average of 53.4 FPS, which is within the normal level of Snapdragon 8+. Since OPPO Reno11 Pro uses a dual-cell series design, the power consumption needs to be x2.
During gaming, the average power consumption of OPPO Reno 11 Pro is 5.2W, which is not high and is also within the level expected of a full-blooded Snapdragon 8+. During 10 minutes of gaming, at a room temperature of 27.5°C, the maximum temperature of the chip area on the back of OPPO Reno11 Pro reached about 42°C, and the holding area at the bottom was 39.5°C.
Judging from the infrared camera, OPPO Reno11 Pro uses aerospace-grade superconducting graphite for heat dissipation. The heat distribution on the back is very even, and there is no heat accumulation in some areas. It feels only slightly warm in the hand and is not unbearable to hold. the point.
ColorOS 14 preloaded on OPPO Reno 11 Pro brings “fluid cloud” active services. These are AI functions supported by strong performance, bringing comprehensive experience upgrades to aspects such as intelligent integration and interactive design.
ColorOS uses a method of placing privacy-related calculations on the device side and privacy-unrelated calculations on the cloud side, ensuring that it can provide a personalized experience while also avoiding user privacy leaks.
The “flash cutout” function it brings is very practical. Even if there is no network, just press and hold to quickly identify the subject, thereby achieving accurate cutout, and the accuracy is also very good, such as people Details such as the edges of the hair, which are easily damaged by accident, are also smoothed out very naturally.
ColorOS 14 also brings a new cross-application content transfer method “transfer station” function, which is Android’s first super temporary storage space that integrates preview and sharing. ,
In OPPO Reno 11 Pro, you can easily put the graphic information, files, etc. in the application into the transfer station, and support quick drag and drop to other applications, eliminating tedious steps and achieving efficient cross-application in just one step. Content flow.
ColorOS 14 also brings a new interactive experience – the “fluid cloud” function, which can provide intelligent, efficient, and low-interference display based on the user’s current usage status and the priorities between different applications and information.
For example, when you receive a link shared by a friend, it will automatically recognize the content after copying it, and use the form of a card to remind you whether to use the corresponding APP to open it; when using the alarm clock, it will also display a capsule in the notification bar. The timer starts in the form, allowing users to get important information at a glance without switching apps.
To ensure the security of privacy, ColorOS has obtained many high-level authoritative certifications in the industry such as MDFPP, ioXt Android Profile, etc., allowing users to create all-round, full-link security and privacy protection, and establish a data link from device to system to transmission. Full-link security management and control make data knowable and controllable, allowing users to enjoy the convenience brought by AI with peace of mind.
Reno 11 Pro has a built-in 4700mAh battery and supports longevity version 80W super flash charging.
According to OPPO, this industry-exclusive longevity flash charging and built-in battery health engine can slow down the loss of battery capacity, making the number of battery charge and discharge cycles far exceed industry standards. After 4 years of use, the available battery capacity is no less than that of the factory. 80% of the time.
It also introduces the industry-leading extreme cold mode, which can still preheat and charge for high-power charging even in extremely low-temperature environments of minus 20°C.
In terms of charging speed, the charging speed of the OPPO Reno 11 Pro is still very fast. It only takes 10 minutes to charge to 50% and 25 minutes to 99%. It takes a total of 27 minutes to reach full capacity.
For the battery life, we use the professional battery life testing tool – Battery Dog produced by Kuai Technology for testing.
For the test items, we chose the extreme battery life test and checked all test items including CPU high voltage, CPU multi-threading, AI recognition, picture browsing, video playback, and web browsing to simulate user usage scenarios and restore the real load to the greatest extent. Infinitely close to the real power consumption situation.
We turned off the automatic brightness of the OPPO Reno 11 Pro screen, changed it to 50%, and changed the refresh rate to automatic.
When the power is consumed from 100% to 20%, it can provide 8 hours of battery life, which translates into a total battery life of about 10 hours.
We can also see from the discharge speed. Compared with the flagship products we have tested before with a discharge speed of 0.15~0.2mAh/s, its performance release is still very restrained. The highest is only 0.13mAh/s, which is a lower discharge. Speed can bring longer-lasting use time to the mobile phone.
OPPO Reno 11 Pro continues the previous generation’s focus on portraits and its thin and light positioning. This generation uses a lot of Find’s unique technologies, which shows us that it is sincere enough to provide users with the best portrait images. experience.
This 2x portrait lens, coupled with a super light and shadow image engine, uses more calculations to achieve fewer calculation traces, thus bringing portrait performance comparable to that of anSLR. Even in backlight environments, the subject of the figure is guaranteed to be clear and accurate. The light and shadow information is retained, greatly improving the film yield.
This also allows us to see Reno’s ultimate pursuit of portrait experience. It combines this portrait lens with the algorithm of its own Find Top flagship to achieve a portrait experience comparable to that of an SLR.
Coupled with the same dynamic light and shadow screen of the Find series, users can also feel the most realistic light and shadow at the moment of shooting on the screen.
OPPO Reno11 Pro is also equipped with the Snapdragon 8+ flagship chip in an 8.19mm slim body, which ensures strong performance and brings a smooth experience to users in daily life and games. If you want to play “Genshin Impact” in your free time, 》No problem either.
The 4700mAh battery can provide up to 10 hours of battery life, so users don’t have to worry about battery life anxiety.
To sum up, if you want a mobile phone that is thin, light, and has excellent portrait shooting effects, the OPPO Reno11 Pro is well worth owning.
