Let's focus on the cameras first. F11 Pro is one of the first with a massive 48MP sensor with f/1.79 aperture, 1/2.25-inch sensor size, 0.8µm pixels, and 6P lens. Like other big camera sensors, it uses the pixel binning tech that combines the information four pixels into 1.

The result? A clearer and sharper 12MP output than a 48MP output. Obviously, the 12MP output also saves more space as it has the lower file size.

OPPO F11 Pro also has a secondary 5MP sensor with 1.2µm pixels designed for portraits. OPPO even claimed that the F11 Pro is a phone that is designed to shoot "brilliant portraits" with DSLR-like bokeh background blur.

However, unlike other new mid-range phones, it doesn't have a 3rd lens at the back for ultra wide-angle mode.

For selfies, we also noticed that the camera sensor is down to 16MP f/2.0 from the 25MP f/2.0 selfie camera its predecessor, the OPPO F9.

On the software side, OPPO improved the camera UI of F11 Pro. Auto AI recognition and auto HDR are also switched on by default. It also comes with new features such as the Chroma Boost and Nightscape.

As the name suggest, Chroma Boost will improve the colors. On the other hand, Nightscape is OPPO's own interpretation of Huawei's Super Night Mode.

Promising right?

In case you are intrigued on how its cameras performs, let's take a look at some of our first few snaps.

Quick thoughts

OPPO F11 Pro is a great mid-range camera phone right off the bat. Thanks to its pixel binning technology, I like the 12MP output produced by its legit 48MP sensor.

You can also switch on to the 48MP mode using the Ultra HD feature on the camera settings when you want. But, the file size will be bigger. Shots are identical with the default 12MP mode as well.

Moreover, you cannot use cool features such as the auto HDR, AI scene recognition, Chroma Boost, and Nightscape mode.

Going to the picture quality, F11 Pro shoots images with plenty of details and and accurate colors. Dynamic range is decent. But it could be better if you will turn the Chroma Boost mode on.

We also noticed that it shoots great portraits with clean background blur even on some against the light shots. It can even focus on some close-up subjects like the Double Down chicken sandwich.

The Nightscape night mode also works. On auto mode, shots comes decent amount of sharpness and clarity. But, noise and loss of detail and colors are evident. But when the Nightscape mode is on, low light shots comes with less noise, better colors, and wider dynamic range.

Nightscape shots are not overprocessed and 
oversharpened compared with other night mode implementations. The output the we got is close to what we saw with the more expensive R17 Pro.

Selfies taken using the pop-up 16MP camera are also okay. Though there's nothing too special about it. But at least, it is wide enough to fit several people in one frame.

The selfies that we took also has good amount of details and accurate colors without the face beauty mode on.

The portrait mode with face beauty is just fine. However, it made the color of my skin a bit redder. We also noticed that the edge detection is not perfect yet.

Overall, it is a good camera phone regardless of the price.
