A few days ago the Asian manufacturer introduced the Vivo V11 and the Vivo V11 Pro, the new Vivo workhorses that come to the market to dominate the mid-range.
Now we bring you a complete review of the Vivo V11 where we know all the details of its design and hardware in a phone that offers a price-quality ratio difficult to overcome.
Already with the Vivo V7 the manufacturer based good phone in showed that it was possible to buy an Android phone at a good price. And his successor is a new example of that.
And is that taking into account the price of the Vivo V11, a phone that does not exceed $350 for the version with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Also, here are new chipset Snapdragon 660 and built-in fingerprint reader.
I would like to note about a small notch at the top of the screen, and it looks much better than other predecessors. It is clear that it is one of the best options to consider. So, let’s see the main specs of Vivo V11.

Vivo V11: Design and Appearance
As in all our reviews, we will start with the design section. And in this case, although there is some detail that overshadows this section, it has to be said that the work done by Vivo with the Vivo V11 is really good in the test.
As for the dimensions of the Vivo V11, say that with 157.9 x 75 x 7.9 mm we are facing a fairly large phone.
It is normal considering that the screen of the Vivo V11 in our analisis is formed by a panel that rubs 6.41 inches, although the upper and lower frames of the front of the device make the dimensions are less restrained than they could be.
Of course, the phone is made of the glass body, but the plastic frame and it’s a big disadvantage, but the case itself strong.
It offering a really nice touch and a good feeling in the hand. And its weight of 156 grams makes using the Vivo V11 not uncomfortable.
Continuing with the design of the phone, on the right side of the device is where we find the volume control keys and on and off of the device.
To say that these components offer a more than correct touch and a good route. Already on the left side is where the nano SIM and microSD card slot is located.
The other negative point we find in the design of the Vivo V11 is seen in the lack of a USB Type C port, there is only the micro USB port.
But it pleases that the Vivo V11 phone has a 3.5mm audio jack, and you will not need to use adapters.
The same goes for the fingerprint reader located on the front of the device, which has built-in fingerprint reader into the display. Of course, in this aspect, you just need to get used to your system so that it is not a problem.
Continuing with the design section, say that the Vivo V11 has the 3.5 mm audio jack and the speaker at the bottom.
In general, the phone is well built, although it has some faults such as the position of the lector or the lack of a USB Type-C port, taking into account its price, the manufacturer’s work in this section is quite good.
Vivo V11: Display
And we can not forget its screen with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection consisting of a 6.41-inch SuperAMOLED panel with 19.5: 9 aspect and Full HD + resolution that reaches 402 ppi.
It offers an impressive image quality: the colors are vivid and clear, without a trace of saturation.
In addition to having more than correct viewing angles and a sufficient level of brightness to use it in any environment.
If we add to this the good quality of its speakers, the Vivo V11 is a very important option to take into account if you want to enjoy multimedia content.
Vivo V11: Hardware and Performance
Let’s move on to the technical features of the Vivo V11 in the analisis, a phone that shows muscle by offering hardware that praises it to that new mid-high range or premium range so fashionable.
On paper, we find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor along with an Adreno 512 GPU and 6 GB of RAM that offers excellent performance.
The phone can load any game or application, regardless of the graphical load that it requires, without major problems offering a great fluidity that nothing has to envy to more powerful phones.
Also, here is micro SD card slot up to 256 GB, so there will be no problems with the memory since it can be found on the Xiaomi Mi A2, which does not have a memory card.
There will also be a model with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory, we believe that it will be more than enough for the vast majority of users.
It must be said that much of the merit of this good performance is borne by the version of Android that uses the V11. And is that the Asian manufacturer has opted for Funtouch OS with version 4.5 to give life to the Vivo V11 and that is a great point in their favor.
Recall that Funtouch OS is the not stock version of the operating system of Google, so there is customization or junk applications preinstalled in the phone.
So, you to mention the fact that with this version of Android software updates are guaranteed but as long we don’t know.
Vivo V11: Camera
Little can we say about this section that we have not commented on the tests of photographs taken with the Vivo V11 camera in our test that we showed you a few days ago.
Recall that the Vivo V11 camera consists of a first 12-megapixel lens with f/1.8 aperture and a pixel size of 1 μm and a second sensor of 5-megapixels with f/2.4 aperture and for depth effect.
It was expected that this dual camera system of Vivo V11 worked really well in well-lit environments but we were surprised by the results achieved in low light situations, with some very good night shots where you can see that the noise level is minimal.
Part of the merit is the AI technology that the phone has, in addition to the automatic HDR mode that integrates its main camera. What if the Vivo V11 can record video in 4K at 30 fps, in addition to having slow motion mode.
Although the great surprise we see in the front camera of the Vivo V11, which climbs three steps from its predecessor.
To start with, it has 25-megapixels of resolution with f/2.0 aperture and AI that makes it capable of detecting the depth to take pictures with defocused effect actually achieved.
Vivo V11: Battery
All the weight of the phone hardware is supported by its 3400 mAh battery that offers quite normal performance.
If you give it a conventional use you will not have any problem in that the phone Vivo V11 endures one day on, although if you are a very active user who enjoys hardcore video games like the Asphalt 9: Legends at the end of the day you will have to load the phone.
Of course, the Vivo V11 has a fast battery charging that will allow you to charge the device quickly.
With FM Radio and NFC make points up to the Vivo V11, and they are considering the hardware that mounts the phone and the excellent user experience offered by the device.
Vivo V11: Conclusions and Reviews
The truth is that the camera of the Vivo V11 in our review is another of the great strengths of this phone that shows that you do not need to leave a fortune to have an Android phone with good camera.
In short, a complete phone that arrives at a breakthrough price: $350 for the version with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage.
But also it is worth noting a good appearance, which is made of glass on both sides, but there is a drawback this is a plastic frame.
Also, the built-in fingerprint scanner is a big plus for the middle-class smartphone, but you need to get used to it, and it’s better to use the face scanner.
And the last is short notch as a drop makes the smartphone unlimited frames.
Vivo V11: Price and Where to buy cheaper?
Officially, the Vivo V11 phone will be sold in September this year and at present Chinese stores do not sell the phone yet.
But as soon as we receive information about good prices, we will write, where you can buy at a good price or with a favorable offer of Vivo V11.
