Performance

The Oppo R11 was the first smartphone to utilize the Snapdragon 660 chip. Fast-forward six months later and the R11s is still among the very few to employ the upper mid-range 660 SoC. Considering the (un)popularity of the chip, we would prefer to still share some if its rather impressive specs.

The 660's processor a powerful octa-core housing Qualcomm's custom Kryo 260 cores - four of those cores are ticking at 2.2GHz, and the other four are at 1.8GHz. There is the Adreno 512 GPU which offers 30% performance increase over the 510 GPU inside the Snapdragon 653 platform.

Oppo R11s, just like the R11, has 4 gigabytes of RAM, while its Plus version will pack 6 gigs.


Geekbenching the Oppo R11s reveales the S660 superiority over the S625 inside the Mi A1, and the recent S630 inside the Moto X4 and U11 Life. The scores are not that far from the results of the flagship Snapdragon 835 inside the Mi 6 and OnePlus 5T.

The promised 30% jump in the graphics performance is there, alright, and the Adreno 512 is still our favorite GPU for the upper mid-range class. Sure, it's not match for the high-discontinue Kirins or Snapdragons, but it's superior to anything else.

Finally, we come to the compound tests, which we deem the most vital measures for a smartphone's performance. Here the Oppo R11s proves to be almost flagship-grade. Sure, it isn't as fine as the Mi 6 and 1+5T with the Snapdragon 835, but it's miles ahead of the rest mid-range chips.

Oppo R11s and its Snapdragon 660 are once again leading the upper mid-range class in terms of performance by a large margin. elegant Qualcomm did a wonderful job with the 660 chip and we can't but wonder why more makers aren't adopting the platform. Money?

Obviously Oppo has a noticeable edge over the current crop of mid-rangers and makes the R11s an easy pick when performance is concerned. Some of the Snapdragon 835 phones now costs close to the R11s, which may eventually become an issue and that's why we left the Mi 6 and OnePlus 5T in the benchimprint charts.

The S660 is manufactured at the 14nm process and is quite energy-efficient. We can applaud the R11s for keeping the shell cool even after going through various benchmarks for the better part of an hour.
