This is your early BER-months budol!
Christmas might be a few months away, but it’s never too early to give yourself a gift. And, it’s very timely that realme released another phone series— the realme 11 Pro+ 5G which is priced at just P24,999. Honestly, this might be realme’s most stylish phone yet.
Realme 11 Pro+ 5G Unboxed
The realme 11 Pro+ 5G comes in the signature yellow and black box. Inside, we found:
- Pre-supplied Type C charger
- Sim Ejector Tool
- Safety Guide
- Realme 11 Pro+ 5G device
Sugbo.ph got a closer look and feel of the newest addition to realme’s phone series. Here’s what we think.
Appearance and Design
Let’s delve first into its appearance and design. This model has got to be the most stylish one yet.
The most noticeable design difference is the circular lens that houses the triple rear camera system. Instead of a horizontal placement, the lenses are in one large circle.
But what makes the phone classier is the leather-type back panel. This is much different than the usual glossy and matte finish of realme phones. From afar, people would think the phone already has a case, but it’s actually just the back design.
Personally, I think the leather back panel makes it easier to grip the phone, along with its round edges. It won’t easily get scratched, too. However, if you purchased the realme 11 Pro+ 5G in Oasis Green or Sunrise Beige, the downside is it can become dirty quickly.
Buttons and Ports
Both volume and power buttons are on the right. Meanwhile, the USB-C port, speaker, and SIM Card slot are at the bottom. However, there is no audio jack available.
Display and Multimedia
The realme 11 Pro+ 5G is equipped with a 6.7-inch AMOLED display responsible for the vibrant colored images. We tested out the phone by watching videos, scrolling through the device, and playing different mobile games. And as expected, the experience went really smoothly because of the phone’s 120Hz refresh rate.
The phone also houses loudspeakers, just as you would expect from an Android phone.
The realme 11 Pro+ 5G’s best feature is the 200MP main shooter. The model has a triple rear camera system and is equipped with an 8MP ultrawide lens and a 2MP macro lens. The front camera, on the other hand, has a 32MP shooter.
Here’s another camera that’s quite a trickster. When you shoot a photo, it looks like it will be pixelated. However, when you click and review the photo in the gallery, it produces a beautifully captured, clear, and crisp image.
Video-wise, the realme 11 Pro+ 5G lives up to expectations. The back camera can shoot up to 4K@30FPS. This phone also has a camera feature that’s great for those who love to film and create content. The phone has an Ultra Steady mode that can shoot up to 1080P@60FPS.
Performance and Charging
We tried using this phone for mundane tasks such as scrolling through social media apps, taking phone calls, and doing video calls to see if it lags and heats up quickly. The realme 11 Pro+ makes a great work phone because while different apps were running in the background, it still functioned smoothly.
For gaming, the realme 11 Pro+ is quite decent. We tried playing our favorite CODM using this phone, which met our expectations: no lag and no heating for quite a long time.
In terms of charging, the device comes with a pre-supplied charger that allows ultra-fast charging. For context, I charged the phone at 15%, and after 5-8 minutes, it reached 40 already.
Aside from the classy design, the realme 11 Pro+ 5G is quite a great phone for everyday use. It can run smoothly even with different tabs open, which is perfect for those who will use it for work. It’s also a great beginner camera phone for content creators. It also has a long battery life and fast charging, so you won’t have to worry about charging it all the time.
