As made obvious by its appellation, the Oppo R11s Plus comes with a couple more pros (a larger screen, for one) than its 6.01-inch R11s sibling, however, it suffers from the exact same cons as well. Leading its setbacks is its awkward lack of NFC capability , which is frankly a no-brainer kind of facet as of its 2017 release. Additionally, it comes with only 64GB of inbuilt memory and it supports a maximum of 256GB of external storage -- several of its high-class phablet rivals boast 128GB inbuilt storage caps and support up to 2TB's worth of top-up memory.
Also among its questionable specs are its 6.43-inch display, which, although way more expansive versus the 6.01-inch facade of the R11s , scores an amateurish 376ppi pixel density . Its FHD+ (2160 x 1080) screen resolution is also a slight letdown, knowing that several of its contemporaries sport QHD (1440p) screens.
Jumping onto the positive side of this pros and cons review, the R11s Plus, much like its little brother, is destined for our list of the best camera smartphones. It touts a 20-megapixel rear-facing camera crafted with night-time shooting in mind accompanied by a 16-megapixel cam for regular daytime photography, giving it one of the highest-resolution dual-camera solutions on the market (as of November 2017). Furthermore, its auspicious 20-megapixel front-facing camera pits it against the most-popular selfie smartphones out there.
This photography-first phablet is not all about cameras, though, since it also packs a punch hardware-wise. Revving from inside the engine room is a Qualcomm Snapdragon eight-core 2.2GHz processor that may not run fast enough to put the R11s Plus among the most-powerful Androids, but is definitely qualified to do the heavy lifting for a flagship-caliber smartphone. Its CPU is accompanied by 6GB's worth of RAM -- 2GB more than what the R11s offers -- and Adreno 512 graphics. Lastly, it replaces the R11s's so-so 3205mAh battery with a 4000mAh cell , though this puts it on the heavy side of the mobile spectrum, weighing 182 grams .
All said, the R11s Plus's pros and cons make it an imaging-driven flagship for shoppers who could also use some high-end multitasking capabilities and lots of screen space.
