I’ve been testing it for a few weeks. OnePlus 11, and as a OnePlus user from your model One Plus 7. I will tell you a little about my impressions of this versatile phone.

design and handling
The dimensions of the device are 163.1 x 74.1 x 8.5 millimeters and its weight is approximately 205 grams.
I have had to use this model without protective casing, since it did not come in the pack. In this edition, OnePlus again bets on glass and aluminum, it has a slight roughness that is not enough to deal with slips and falls. I have to admit that it has taken quite a few and it has not been as bad as other models could have been. But this only leads me to reaffirm that a phone of such a design and budget should include a case in its packaging.
The rear camera of the phone is quite integrated. It has 3 sensors and a light that do not overflow too much, and it does not make it too heavy (around 200 grams). It draws attention and creates a striking yet discreet design, the format they have opted for for the camera module. They stand out due to the change in material, a circle on a rectangle that, in a simple and subtle way, creates a difference with the rest of the camera modules that we are used to seeing.
Another very important fact is that it has infinite screen. Personally, it is something that does not convince me in phones due to usability. And it is that when you are holding it, when trying to navigate, the fingers with which you hold the phone can touch the screen, interfering with navigation and often making us have to perform the action more than once.
Display, interface and software
The screen of the device is quite similar to those of other smartphones on the market, being a AMOLED of 6.7 inches and infinite, with a resolution of 3216 x 1440 pixels and 120Hz refreshoffering a very good image quality. It has a coating with technology Gorilla Glass Victory, that we can confirm that it fulfills its function quite well (because of the falls that I mentioned before). However, sometimes it seems that it does not take certain movements or the fingerprint itself well.
Something I really like about these phones is the side rocket button to put it in silence, vibration mode or with sound just by moving a lever that is on the side. It is something that I no longer know much about Android models but that is greatly appreciated when you have it.
As for the software, it uses the version of Android with the cape OxygenOS Owned by OnePlus. With the latest update they have added some changes, such as the notification bar that looks more like Google’s proposal. Or the toggles that, as in other Android layers, take center stage those of WiFi and Bluetooth and then the rest, although the entire drop-down is configurable. The design is nice, and quick features like the Spotify player are integrated.
Performance and autonomy
Like the vast majority of high-end phones, the OnePlus 11 offers two hardware options, both with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, already offering great performance. The simplest configuration combines 8GB of RAM with 128GB of storage. On the other hand, the most complete version, which is the one we have tested, offers 16GB of RAM and 256GB internal memory, features that are more than enough to give it smooth use with management applications, RRSS, communication or photography.
As for autonomy, it has a 5000mAh battery, which has generally stuck with me until the end of the day. Like almost all the smartphones I’ve used, what drains the battery the most is the GPS of continuous use or video applications (using it continuously) like Twitch.
Cameras (photo and video)
Regarding the photography and video module, the phone has three sensors, all three Sony: the main 50 MP, 24mm focal length and f/1.8 aperture; one 32 MP telephoto lens and f/ 2.0 aperture; And a 48 MP wide angle with an f/2.2 aperture and a 115º field of view.
Applying it to the real world, I usually use the phone to take pictures of the figures I paint, and the truth is that I am very happy with the result. I already commented in the previous review of the Vivo X80 Pro that its photographic module was the core of that phone, but this section on the OnePlus 11 seemed quite interesting to me in this regard.
However, how much the photographs are to capture the environment leaves a bittersweet taste. Like most photos, it depends a lot on the light we have at the time. And although in general it does not take bad photos, it is true that it still has to improve in terms of sharpness.
As regards the front camera, it is quite basic, having a 16 MP sensor, f/2.45 aperture and no zoom capability. Enough to take selfies without being very demanding.
Regarding video recording, we can film in various qualities: 720p at 30/60fps, 1080p at 30/60fps, 4K at 30/60fps and 8K at 24fps. Here I don’t know if it’s a thing of the stabilizer or the video processing, that when
Continuing with the OnePlus speakers, nothing special to mention. At the power level they seemed very correct to me and they sound phenomenal in the shower.
However, to enjoy music well, the brand proposes the Airbuds Pro 2, a headset that is easily linked to the phone via Bluetooth.
The helmets are button-type, which I personally don’t like because they create a “plug effect” and isolate too much from reality. At the audio level they are very interesting because all registers are heard quite well, the treble and bass being quite balanced.
Let’s not forget that the buds also serve as hands-free, having integrated microphones. They have an integrated noise gate that filters sounds above 40dB, allowing them to be quite clear when we use them to talk.
They have 28 hours of autonomy and the charging station offers fast charging technology, through a USB-C port.
In conclusion, it is a very powerful phone in terms of processing and memory with good image quality and battery life that should last all day. The camera hardware could have been of better quality to have made this terminal more complete.
Excellent performance and processing, ideal for intensive use.
