Need a gift for your Marvel universe-obsessed friend/family member/yourself? Oppo has a pretty nice option: An Avengers-themed variant of its F11 Pro phone.
Oppo sent me a unit to check out, and it’s just what I expected: A beautiful device with just enough Avengers-related details to appeal to fans of the series. But its best feature is the price.
First, the basics: The Oppo F11 Pro Marvel’s Avengers Limited Edition (yes, the full name is a handful) is technically the same phone as the F11 Pro, which I’ve tried out in March. The F11 Pro comes in several variants; the Avengers edition is the same as the most powerful of those, with 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. For more details about how it performs and its features, check out that article.
Quick highlights: The phone performs well despite not having a top processor. Its camera is mostly alright, though bokeh shots are awful (in a recent update, the camera got several important upgrades, including HDR mode). Its biggest strength is the 4,000mAh battery, which charges super fast and lasts forever.
The Avengers edition, however, is all about that Marvel bling. The phone has a glossy finish on the back, with a cool hexagonal pattern and (part of) a red Avengers logo. With phones these days being quite similar, I’ve seen lots of attempts of making a phone’s design stand out, and not many have succeeded. Oppo, however, has nailed it — the back of the phone really looks cool.
In fact, it’s so cool that you’ll likely be hesitant to use the included case, which has a nice Captain America shield-styled kickstand but is otherwise quite bland. Perhaps a see-through case would’ve been a better fit.
Other details include an Avengers-themed box which also contains a collector’s badge, and a special software theme for the phone (which is just alright). Check out my quick unboxing below.
Generally, it’s hard not to recommend the F11 Pro Avengers Edition. It costs Rs. 27,990 ($400) in India, which is a decent price for this phone even without the Avengers branding. The phone is currently unavailable, though; there’s no word on when (or if) it might be back in stock.
