OnePlus has just launched its latest flagship, and it absolutely destroys your pricey Apple and Samsung dream phones in a few areas. And then some more! First, this phone is capable of 100W charging, over four times as fast as the priciest iPhone, and over twice as quick as the best that Samsung serves in 2023.
Also, OnePlus won't charge you a convenience fee to experience all that raw charging goodness. The company actually bundles the 100W charging brick in the retail package. And yes, it's good enough to charge your MacBook and Windows-fueled ultrabooks. But wait, the OnePlus 11 ain't a one-trick pony.
Let's talk about the design, especially that beautiful curved side and the seductive matte finish on the rear panel. I'm not exaggerating here, by the way. That matte finish feels velvety to touch, but still offers a beautiful anti-slip grip. Also, it's protected by Gorilla Glass 5, just in case you're curious.
And yes, it does feel better in the hands than the iPhone 14 Plus or the Samsung Galaxy S23. I had a few of my friends do a feel check, and they felt the same about the OnePlus 11. Good job, OnePlus! The screen is a 120Hz OLED panel with QHD+ resolution and curved edges, with all the HDR10+ and Dolby Vision goodness thrown into the mix.
Inside is Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. I've played Call of Duty: Mobile and Diablo Immortal at peak graphics settings on the OnePlus 11, and everything was buttery smooth without the phone getting toasty.
At the back is a 50-megapixel main camera, and this time, I've found it producing natural colors with better HDR and a ton of sharpness. You also get a 48-megapixel ultrawide and a 32-megapixel telephoto camera, but alas, you only get 2x optical zoom output. The lights are kept on by a 5,000mAh battery, and in my usage spanning about a week, it can easily last a full day.
The OnePlus 11 starts at Rs. 56,999. The OnePlus Buds Pro 2 comes for Rs. 11,999.
