Oppo F11 Pro - Specification, Price, Pros and Cons

After OPPO has solved its notch design problem, there has been an expectation for more interesting innovations and yet affordable device from the global smartphone maker. With the launch of its latest smartphone, the OPPO F11 Pro it seems like our expectation is already here.

The phone comes with an amazing feature and design, and not only does it incorporate a rising front camera mechanism, but it also substituted the notch for an edge-to-edge screen and a VOOC charging for an affordable price. The device is available in two variants, a 4GB and 6GB Ram priced differently.

At a time where smartphone innovation is at an all-time high, the OPPO F11 Pro tries to stands out from the crowd. The device which is currently aimed at the Indian market is an instant eye-catcher. It's not about selfies anymore. But the selfie is quite impressive, there also many other impressive features that come with the device.

First, let's take a look at the specification of the OPPO F11 Pro.

OPPO F11 Pro - Specification Summary
  • Network: 2G/3G/4G LTE
  • SIM Type: Dual SIM (Nano-SIM, dual stand-by)
  • Display: 6.53 inches LTPS IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen

  • Battery type: Integrated 4000mAh
  • Weight: 190 g (6.70 oz)
OPPO F11 Pro - Design and Display

One can easily believe that the OPPO F11 Pro is expensive because of its amazing looking design. It is poetic how the 6.5-inch screen of the phone achieves a 90.90% screen-to-body ratio. The phone is designed with an LCD panel with a Full HD+ resolution and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. This display is free from bothersome obstructions as the selfie camera is neatly packaged into a rising unit at the top of the phone

The F11 Pro has either triple-color or dual-color gradient depending on which model you opt for - Thunder Black of Aurora Green. The large 6.53" display is free of any cutouts and with the bare minimum of bezels. While the initial OPPO F11 itself has a waterdrop-like notch, this Pro model is all about the full-screen experience, and that's why Oppo has moved the selfie camera onto a motorized pop-up.


A pop-up selfie camera is no longer new, it is a familiar concept as seen Vivo. Also, the screen is not truly bezel-less. Even, none on the market is. This allowed OPPO to fit in the earpiece on the top bezel. And the one on the F11 Pro is super thin and long.

The device, however, has just one loudspeaker, and it's at the bottom. The top part of the frame has a noise-canceling mic and the ambient light sensor. There are two proximity sensors on the Oppo F11 Pro, but we can't really tell where - probably behind the screen.

At the back is a vertically stacked 48MP+5MP dual-camera setup is centrally placed at the rear and is perfectly aligned with the rising selfie camera unit. A fingerprint scanner sits just underneath the cameras in a position that is ideal for easy access. All this contributes to a gorgeous looking handset that exudes a sense of symmetry that is absent from many other phones

OPPO F11 Pro - Performance, Storage and Camera

With the OPPO F11 Pro, you get a MediaTek Helio P70 chipset running on the hood. This chipset has already proven to be very popular in the mid-range smartphone segment, and OPPO has taken it a step further with all the under-the-hood optimizations it has invested in for the F11 Pro.

The Helio P70 CPU has an octa-core processor with 4x A73 cores at 2.1GHz and 4x A53 cores are running at 2.0GHz. This means that you can expect nothing less than a high-performance quartet that is just 100MHz higher than same on the Oppo F9 Pro and its P60 chip. The OPPO hasn't changed the GPU since the P60.

The most obvious of these is the redesigned UI with the brand’s latest ColorOS 6.0. This F11 Pro is the first Oppo smartphone we have seen running on the latest Color OS 6, the ROM is based on Android 9 Pie and features a lot of improvements with more discreet optimizations for good user experience and smooth performance while gaming and multitasking with the device.

And for the storage, the device has an internal 128GB for the 6GB Ram version and 64GB internal storage for the 4GB version. The storage can further be expanded using a microSD card up to 256GB allowing you to save more files. However, you can online use either the dual SIM without a MicroSD card or a single SIm and a MicroSD card. The choice is yours.

The camera of the F11 Pro is the most enticing feature. The primary configuration at the back of the device is comprised of a 48MP+5MP imaging setup. To make impressive low light portrait photography possible, this camera offers an impressive f/1.79 aperture and a 6P lens setup to capture more light.

Furthermore, the camera can even be adjusted to take 12MP shots using a 4-in-1 pixel binning method to achieve better details, especially in dim lighting. Also, OPPO brings you Ultra Night Mode that combines the benefits of an integrated AI Engine and Ultra-Clear Engine to capture crisp photographs. This mode essentially allows for a long exposure shot with optimizations for image stabilization, multi-frame noise reduction, skin brightness and more.


The OPPO F11 Pro's secret weapon here is its ‘Pixel-grade Color-mapping algorithm’ that is capable of restoring and enhancing brightness and colors. This mode also makes use of a noise reduction system so that you get just as good results in low-light. These AI-based enhancements on the rear camera of the F11 Pro also make scene recognition possible. A total of 23 scenes can be recognized by the phone’s camera to allow automatic optimizations to the image after it is taken.

And coming to the F11 Pro’s selfie camera, it has a 16MP lens hidden in the rising mechanism at the top of the device. A lot of the same AI-based enhancements found on the phone’s rear camera is also used here to make sure optimal image quality. With that said, the average selfie enthusiast is more concerned with beatification options, and the F11 Pro has those in spades

OPPO F11 Pro - Battery and Other Features

A long-lasting battery is what buyers crave for. Besides, what’s the point of a smartphone with powerful features with a poor battery that can't even last a whole a day at least? Well, the massive 4000mAh battery of the OPPO F11 Pro ensures its user will not have much to worry about the device running low every now and then.

Also, it offers Oppo's own solution called VOOC Flash Charging that requires using the bundled 20W charger and a proprietary microUSB cable, which can be limiting. At least, it offers great speeds. The 20W adapter can bring the Oppo F11 Pro battery from 0% to about 40% in around 30 minutes, which is quite rapid. It takes about 85mins for a full charge.

The OPPO F11 Pro is a dual-SIM smartphone that accepts Nano-SIM cards. Connectivity options on the device include Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G, and 4G, while the sensors on the phone include an accelerometer, proximity sensor, and fingerprint sensor.

OPPO F11 Pro - Price and Availablity

The phone is currently available for order both offline and online. For the price, it costs INR 24,990 in India, the OPPO F11 Pro is currently not available in Nigeria and it went on sale in India starting from 15th March and will move to other parts of the world later.

OPPO F11 Pro - Pros
  • Captivating design and you can't really tell if it's plastic or glass
  • Full widescreen with superb contrast
  • 4G LTE support for fast internet downloading as compared to 3G
  • Large battery capacity with super fast charging support
  • Excellent camera quality for a photo enthusiast
OPPO F11 Pro - Cons
  • Notchless design
  • No 4K video recording (available via third-party apps though)
  • No MicroUSB NFC reader
No doubt, OPPO is not a popular brand in Nigeria but it is definitely a good phone. In terms of performance, the device offers a good performance powered with a powerful core processor and up to 6GB to ensure no nagging or slowing down under any heavy usage.

And if you crave for a quality camera, the device comes with an amazing camera. However, it is needless to say that this device fulfills all expectations of the users. But, if the budget is not the issue here, then it is a good device to purchase.

Nokia 9 Pure View - Specification, Features, Pros and Cons

Nokia is a well-known brand in the industry, and the company is back again in 2019 with a new smartphone, Nokia 9 Pure View. The new device from Nokia comes with many impressive features, the device might just be everything you are looking for if you fancy high-quality camera smartphones.

Nokia has refused to follow the notch design trend on its latest smartphone even in 2019 when almost all the brands are adopting full notch design.

Aside from the notch, the  Nokia 9 Pure View comes with impressive features like superb camera, 2k display, ample storage, lag-free performance, etc., making it a suitable option as your next smartphone. It also has a water and dust proof feature that makes it a kind of rugged smartphone, suitable for outdoor activities

Let jump into the specification of this device;

Nokia 9 Pure View - Specification Summary

  • Network: 2G/3G/4G LTE
  • SIM Type: Single SIM (Nano-SIM) or Hybrid Dual SIM
  • Display Size and type: PureDisplay 5.99” QHD+ pOLED
  • Resolution: 2K HD
  • Dimension: 155 x 75 x 8 mm
  • Display Material: Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5
  • Operating system: Android 9 Pie (Android One)
  • Processor: Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 845
  • Ram: 6GB
  • Internal memory: 128GB
  • Rear cameras: 5 x 12 MP, f/1.82 (2 x RBG, 3 x mono)
  • Front-facing camera: 20 MP, display flash
  • Battery type: Integrated 3320 mAh
  • Weight: 172 g

Nokia 9 Pure View - Design and Display

The Nokia 9 Pure View offers the viewing experience you deserve, it features a 5.99” edge-to-edge pOLED QHD display with 2K resolution. With PureDisplay technology, you’ll experience accurate colors and improved sunlight readability.

The Multi-touch pOLED QHD display is equipped with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 screen protection for better durability. The device is water resistant (IP68) and dust-proof, which makes a suitable company for your next adventurous trip. The Nokia 9 is only available in a colour called Midnight Blue


The design is very sleek and beautiful for handheld, at the back of the device is the 5 back camera (which we think is the main selling point of the device), Nokia had designed the smartphone to have an in-display fingerprint scanner and a bright and colorful p-OLED screen. At the bottom of the phone are a USB-C port, in-call mic, and loudspeaker.

Just like most of the popular phones coming with notch design, the company did not adopt the notch on its latest smartphone, but we saw it on Nokia 8.1.

The Nokia 9 is certainly an attractive smartphone. There's no curve in the display's Gorilla Glass 5, but there is a beveled edge around the aluminum frame, which is made out of 6000 series aluminum. The exposed aluminum contrasts very well with the frame's semi-gloss finish.

Nokia 9 Pure View - Performance, Storage and Camera

No arguments, the Nokia 9 is powered by last year's Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. As a matter of fact, every image shot with this device uses information from all five cameras.

The smartphone is powered by two Kryo 385 quad-core processors having 2.8GHz and 1.8GHz clock speed. Those are seated on Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 MSM8998 chipset. Furthermore, the Adreno 630 graphics facilitates excellent gaming experience, while the 6GB RAM promises sufficient programmes to perform without nagging or hanging.

However, the performance is further enhanced with Android 9 Pie. The Android 9 Pie tailors a user experience that just gets better with time making the device an amazing device for gaming, streaming of videos and multitasking without issues of hanging or slowing down.

As for the storage, it comes 128GB of internal storage with no microSD card expansion. And unfortunately, it appears that this will be the only memory variant that will be available. On like the trend we have been seeing in 2019. However, with the 128GB, we believe you still won't run out of storage frequently.

Again, the Nokia 9 Pure View's camera is the most exciting part of the device. The five camera setup is aimed at photography enthusiasts. And this phone is made perfectly for those who like to tune their RAW photos in post processing - like opening up shadows, bringing back highlights, and applying just the right amount of sharpening.

All the cameras lenses have the same fixed focal length of 28mm. This camera doesn't have a wide angle camera, it doesn't have telephoto cameras, and it doesn't have any fancy shooting modes. Instead, all five cameras are 12MP each and have f/1.8 aperture lenses: two of the cameras are RGB and the other three are monochrome.

The images from all five (sometimes even a few photos per camera) are all stacked to produce a single image with a spectacular dynamic range - up to 12.4 stops of difference in a light which is as much as a real large sensor camera. Aside from letting 2.8x more light in due to the lack of a Bayer filter, the job of the B&W sensors is also to allow for a true monochromatic shooting mode rather than a mere desaturation of already color images.


The Nokia also has a front-facing 20MP F/1.8 camera. It supports Tetracell pixel binning so in low light situations, it can combine four adjacent pixels into one producing 5MP images.

Nokia 9 Pure View - Battery and Other Features

The device has an integrated 3320 mAh battery capacity, that is not as massive as expected. But, Nokia uses an AI Technology that helps the battery Last longer from charge to charge with the Adaptive Battery. The Nokia 9 Pure View is Wireless charging enabled and USB Type-C for fast charge.

The Nokia is a Single-SIM  (Nano-SIM) or Hybrid Dual SIM smartphone. Connectivity options on the device include Wi-Fi, GPS, USB Type-C, 3G, and 4G, Hotspot etc. While the sensors on the phone include In-screen fingerprint sensor, ALS/PS, G-sensor, E-compass, Gyro, Hall sensor, Barometer, Haptic vibrator.

Nokia 9 Pure View - Price and Availablity

The Nokia 9 PureView is launched in the US in early March while Europe is expected to wait until April. Well, the wait will be shorter than expected. Several stores will ship the 5-camera flagship in mid-March and in one case the price is lower than the official cost over at Nokia.com (which still shows April shipping dates).

However, the Nokia 9 will cost $600 in the US and in the UK it's £550 for the phone and you get a pair of Nokia True Wireless Earbuds.

Nokia 9 Pure View - Pros
  • Powerful camera for quality photos and video recording
  • 4G LTE support for faster internet downloading and streaming as compared to 3G
  • Beautiful design and wide display for gaming
  • Supports fast charging with USB Type-C and wireless charging
  • Massing internal storage capacity
  • IP67 water and dust resistant
Nokia 9 Pure View - Cons
  • No MicroSD card support
  • Support just a single SIM
The Nokia 9 Pure View comes with a bunch of impressive features like 5 quality camera, 2k display, lots of storage, and wireless charging. We expected 5G from this device, but that is not a hug criterial yet because 5G is still in the infant stage.

The device is an amazing device for photo lovers.

The performance is also followed with a 1GB Ram size that brings smooth performance while switching between apps (multitasking). That said, the F2 LTE runs on Tecno's own HiOS based on Android™ 8.1 (Go edition) which makes it quite fast and smooth under intensive usages like when playing games, stream movies and browsing the internet

However, the performance is not that fast, but compared to the price, we are not disappointed. Along with the performance is an internal 8GB storage space that allows you to save important file, the device supports up to 16GB MicroSD card expansion that allows you to save more. The addition of a MicroSD card over 32GB may affect the performance of the device.

You can keep your memories alive with the 5MP front and back camera, the device supports both front and back camera that allows you to take pictures even in dark place. The camera really is not that superb as compared many devices but a smartphone at its price it is not a bad spec.

Tecno F2 LTE - Battery and Other Features

We understand how important battery capacity is, users, crave for long-lasting battery phone because they want to avoid regular charging. However, this device is powered with a 2400mAh battery capacity, if you have used devices with a higher battery you may find it difficult going for this F2 LTE.

Again, considering the price, we do not expect to see anything higher than this. Also, Tecno is very security conscious and have added a fingerprint scanner to this device. Within seconds you can unlock it with your finger. Other important and interesting features include the 4G LTE.

Tecno F2 LTE - Price and Availablity

The device is currently available for order both online eCommerce shops and offline shops. It is also available in Nigeria and the device is currently on sale at the price of 29,500 Naira (Order from Jumia)

Tecno F2 LTE - Pros

  • Has a dual SIM card slot that allows you to use two different or same network
  • Supports 4G LTE for fast internet browsing and online video streaming
  • Supports fingerprint scanner for top security and fast unlocking
  • Powered with a quad-core processor for better performance
  • Very affordable, under 30,000 naira

Tecno F2 LTE - Cons
  • 5MP front and back camera, the back would have at least be 8MP for a better quality
  • Depending on the usage, you may need to constantly charge the phone or carry a charger along. Battery capacity is quite small 2400mAh
  • The display is not big, so if you love smartphones with the large display then this is not for you (5.0 inches)

Finally - Considering the price, this is a device for people looking for an affordable or cheap smartphone with 4G LTE and fingerprint  scanner. It is actually one of the best choice for smartphones under 30,000 naira in Nigeria 2019
