OnePlus 11 5G Brings Value And Performance To An Affordable Android Flagship

    There’s little question that the average selling price of high-end Android phones has been creeping up over recent years, though this current launch cycle seems to have softened a bit, likely due to the uncertain economic climate. OnePlus has historically lead the charge with respect to bringing top-end “never settle” specs and features to a reasonably-priced flagship offering, though the company’s more recent releases were inching up in price as well. Fortunately, with the OnePlus 11 5G, the company has returned to its value-oriented roots and in doing so has delivered what I feel will be one of the better Android flagship phone values this year, starting at $699.

    High-Level Specs: Killer Display, Redesigned Camera Pod, Powered By Snapdragon

    Let’s start with the vital signs here. The OnePlus 11 5G is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, which, in my opinion, is one of the best mobile platforms the company has delivered yet, with both strong and sustainable performance across a wide variety of phone workloads. More on that in a bit.

    The back of the device is sheathed in Gorilla Glass 5, and the Eternal Green color you see here is gorgeous, and resists fingerprints well, but is super shiny and slippery. It’s a shame to cover it up, but OnePlus makes some great cases and I’d highly recommend strapping one on to protect this gemstone finish. The front display is covered in Gorilla Glass Victus for a bit more durability.

    Speaking of the display, the 6.7-inch 3216×1440 resolution OLED LTPO panel OnePlus brought to the table sports a 120Hz dynamic refresh rate that can auto-switch to lower refresh rates when not needed, to conserve power. This is one gorgeous, bright (1300 nit), punchy OLED display that has a slight waterfall curved edge to it that blends perfectly to the contour of the phone’s aluminum side rails. And yes, ladies and gents, the OnePlus alert slider is back, allowing you to drop the phone into vibrate mode or DND with a simple flip of this edge-mounted switch. Why others haven’t adopted this simple, thoughtful feature is beyond me.
