Can’t afford iPhone 11? Try any of these powerful options

Oppo F11 Pro

Gone are those days when mobile phones are bought primarily for the purpose of making calls and receiving messages. Nowadays, users, while purchasing phones, look out for key accessories like the camera, operating system, battery life and the user interface generally. New phones are produced and launched into the market almost every year with new features that will captivate users’ attention. CobraReview is here to reveal some mobile phones that you can buy to replace the ridiculously expensive iPhone 11!

Of course you can’t get the rave and pizzaz that surrounds the iPhone but if functionality or specific features is the issue, then the Oppo F11 Pro for instance has (almost)everything the iPhone 11 has, please let me take you through the features of three special and affordable phones that can make you happy by giving you almost everything you can get on an iPhone without the name, prestige and perhaps ruggedness of the Californian phenomenon.

1. OPPO F11 Pro

Guangdong OPPO Mobile Telecommunications Corp., Ltd, commonly referred to as OPPO, is a Chinese consumer electronics and mobile communications company headquartered in Dongguan, Guangdong, in China, and known for its smartphones, Blu-ray players and other electronic devices that are made in China. A leading manufacturer of smartphones, OPPO was the top smartphone brand in China in 2019 and was ranked No. 5 worldwide.

On Friday, April 26, it launched its “upper mid-range” phone, the F11 Pro in the country. The OPPO F11 Pro first launched in India last month. It’s selling point is its “rising” selfie camera which has a 16MP sensor. OPPO also unveiled the F11 Pro Marvel’s Avengers Limited Editon too.

2. Huawei P30 Pro.

The Huawei P30 Pro was announced alongside the smaller, and cheaper, Huawei P30. Is it the top Android phone you should be buying this year? Get your hands on one of Huawei’s most powerful handsets, complete with three lens rear camera package, a fantastic OLED screen and an impressive battery life. Enjoy the greatest companion with their fitness watch, the GT Watch, free. There are three main cameras on the Huawei P30 Pro’s rear, headlined by an all-new Super Sensing 40-megapixel sensor with an f/1.6 aperture and 26mm focal length. While all those megapixels result in ridiculously detailed shots, the real star is that Super Sensing moniker. Instead of the typical RGB sensor (that’s red, green and blue) found in rival phones, the Huawei P30 Pro uses RYYB – or red, yellow, yellow, blue.

3. Vivo Nex 3

Vivo has taken the wraps of its Nex 3 flagship smartphone that’s available with 4G or 5G, a triple camera module, and a screen that stretches over its curved edges. The Nex 3 smartphone comes with Qualcomm’s top-tier 5G Snapdragon 855 Plus and features Vivo’s ‘waterfall’ curved 6.98-inch display that drips over the edgesVivo boasts the phone has a 99.6% screen-to-body ratio and no iPhone-like notch.

Due to the screen reaching across the edges, there’s no room for physical buttons, which Vivo has substituted with a vibrating or haptic feedback system called ‘Touch Sense’ that’s built in to the Nex 3’s waterfall display. It’s also got an in-screen fingerprint scanner.

As the new 5G phone on the block, the Nex 3 could compete in Europe with Samsung’s Galaxy S10, the Galaxy Note10 Plus, the Huawei Mate 20 X, the OnePlus 7 Pro, and the 5G phone from Vivo’s sister brand, the Oppo Reno. The new 5G smartphones are being promoted by carriers in the UK.
