For those who are hunting for large 6-inch smartphones, then you have two great choices: Oppo R11s and Huawei Honor V10.
Let’s begin our show today by taking a look at the R11s. It is based on the goodness of R11 but adds more stuff to it. Here you go with its specs:
- 6.01-inch Full HD AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 1080 x 2160 pixels, 18:9 ratio or ~401 ppi density
- Fullview Display
- Gorilla Glass 5 protection
- Fingerprint sensor
- Qualcomm MSM8956 Plus Snapdragon 660 chipset, Octa-core (4x2.2 GHz Kryo 260 & 4x1.8 GHz Kryo 260) processor, Adreno 512 graphics and 4GB RAM
- Dual 20MP primary camera (f/2.6, AF) + 16MP (f/1.7, PDAF) with phase detection autofocus and LED flash
- 16MP secondary camera with f/2.0 aperture
- 64GB internal storage + microSD expansion slot up to 256GB maximum
- Android Nougat 7.1.1
- Non-removable Li-Po 3200 mAh battery with Fast battery charging
- Dual-sim and 4G LTE
- November 2017 release date
- 2,999 Chinese Yuan or ~$450 USD price tag
The first thing that you will notice is its large 6.01-inch Full HD AMOLED screen that also comes with Fullview display. Most manufacturers are now moving to this new technology, as it manages to squeeze more resolution onto the same screen size.
This means you get to see more details on-screen, and lets you enjoy more. Then there’s the Gorilla Glass 5 protection to give you peace of mind.
Moving on to the performance, we can find the R11s somewhere in the medium-high range with the recently released Snapdragon 660 chipset, high-speed Kryo octa-core processor, good graphics and 4GB RAM. Great stuff indeed.
Camera-wise, here’s where we can find the R11s offering a dual 20MP+16MP primary camera that lets you have a fantastic time with the camera smartphone. You also get to experiment with the bokeh effect. Then there’s the 16MP selfie camera that makes the package complete.
The selfie camera also benefits from a built-in AI to enhance all your selfies. This is done by collecting data points such as age, skin tone, and facial structure; which then allows the camera to capture the best selfie every time automatically. It also encourages you to experience the power of the facial recognition system, which claims that it can unlock the smartphone in just 0.08 seconds.
Regarding storage, there’s nothing like 64GB of storage that lets you install all your favourite apps and games; and so much more. You also get to further expand it up to a maximum of 256GB via the available expansion slot.
Finally, the 3200 mAh battery is just nice to be able to supply enough juice for a full day while you are out and about.
With a week more to go for its launch, everyone is eagerly waiting for the Honor V10 to finally show its true colours. Here’s to what we know of it so far:
- 5.99-inch Full HD LTPS IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1080x2160 pixels
- Fullview display
- All-metal body
- 2.5D curved glass
- Fingerprint sensor
- Hisilicon Kirin 970 chipset, Octa-core (4x2.4 GHz Cortex-A73 & 4x1.8 GHz Cortex-A53) processor, Mali-G72 MP12 graphics and 6GB RAM
- Dual 20MP+16MP primary camera with phase detection & laser autofocus and dual-LED (dual tone) flash
- 8MP secondary camera with f/2.0 aperture
- 64GB internal storage with no expansion slot
- Android Oreo 8.0
- Non-removable Li-Po 4000 mAh battery with Fast battery charging
- Dual-sim and 4G LTE
- December 5th 2017 launch date
- 2,999 Chinese Yuan or ~$450 USD estimated price tag
For starters, Honor V10 will be sporting a large 5.99-inch Full HD LTPS IPS screen with Fullview display. An all-metal body and 2.5D curved glass found on the phablet, will give out a great look and feel experience to those who want that exclusive look.
Regarding performance, you can expect only the best out of its Kirin 970 chipset, a blazingly fast octa-core processor, great graphics and a whopping 6GB RAM. There’s nothing that will slow it down.
As for the camera, a similar dual 20MP+16MP camera will be found on the Honor V10. Only a camera showdown will determine the winner, but the difference wouldn’t be that far off between the two. The 8MP selfie camera then lets you take good-looking selfies with it.
One slight disadvantage about the Honor V10, is the fact that it will not have an expansion slot. That means you will have to make do with just 64GB of internal storage, which is still fine. Otherwise, you may want to turn to cloud storage or a USB on-the-go.
With Android Oreo 8.0 expected to be running on this phablet, you get the best of hardware and software combining well to give you the best of the best.
Last but not least, the 4000 mAh battery should be more than capable of powering up the Honor V10 for a day or two in between charging.
Oppo R11s is a great choice for those who want a large 6.01-inch Full HD AMOLED screen with Fullview display, great protection, medium-high performance, great dual 20MP+16MP primary camera and a great 16MP selfie camera to boot.
Oppo R11s had just been released for 2,999 Chinese Yuan or ~$450 USD and you get to choose Red, Black or Champagne.
Huawei Honor V10 gives the best hardware and latest software with the large 5.99-inch Full HD LTPS IPS screen with Fullview display, an all-metal body with 2.5D curved glass, excellent flagship performance, great dual 20MP+16MP primary camera, huge 4000 mAh battery and the latest Oreo 8.0 operating system is what you will get.
Huawei Honor V10 was launched last December 5th and it is available for 2,999 Chinese Yuan or ~$450 USD. There’s a lot of colours to choose from, so stay tuned for more updates.
