Vivo recently launched its mid-range smartphone, the Vivo V11 Pro. The Vivo V11 Pro brings massive innovative new features to the table. However, there are a lot of things hidden under the table which don’t look like big issues, but they mean a lot.

The best thing about the Vivo V11 Pro is its screen, which is almost a bezel-less display with a waterdrop notch design that makes this phone stunning. Actually, the display is vibrant, all thanks to its beautiful Super AMOLED display, which you can use in outdoor visibility stunning without any worry with all the viewing angles.

If you are a person who uses video streaming apps, then this device can disappoint you because you can’t watch videos in HD. It doesn’t come with the Widevine L1 DRM, which is necessary for playing videos in HD. It only supports Widevine L3, which is only capable of streaming in standard definition. This is disappointing for heavy multimedia users, and it can’t be fixed with an OTA update.

There is no doubt that the camera of this phone is awesome. The detailing of the front camera is optimized accurately for the front-facing camera, which results in accurate detailing in the image. But for low-light images, they are acceptable, including its video because this device doesn’t have any kind of stabilization. Considering the price point, it is not acceptable. The in-display fingerprint scanner is not as fast as its face unlock. It has IR face unlock, so you can unlock this device with a touch of light on your face.

Vivo compromised with its network because the Vivo V11 Pro supports LTE CAT 6. Under the price of 10,000 devices, they support LTE CAT 13. If we consider the price point, it should support at least LTE CAT 15, which is a cause of drop calls and weak connection. Along with the network, this device has eMMC storage, which is not acceptable because the price point of this device should have UFS 2.1, which is double fast than eMMC storage. This leads to a slow process in loading time due to eMMC storage.

So, now let’s talk about the performance. On paper, this device looks decent because this device packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC coupled with 6GB RAM.

Here are some benchmarks of Vivo V11 Pro.

We definitely don’t recommend this device. Instead, consider the POCO F1, Mi A2, Honor Play, and Asus Zenfone 5z.
