6 Reasons Not to Buy OnePlus 11
1- Steep Price
The price of the OnePlus 11 starts at Rs 56,999, which is by no means a small amount. There are several other smartphones in the market that can do the same exact job as OnePlus 11 will do for you at a lesser price. You can even opt to go for OnePlus 10 to save a lot of money.
2- Poor Front Camera
The OnePlus 11’s 16 MP front camera is quite poor when compared to the camera of the iQOO 11 5G, which is a device available in the same price range. Even though the rear camera is brilliant for recording videos and low-light photography, the front camera fails in all of these aspects. The front camera is surely one of the biggest disappointments of the OnePlus 11.
3- Limited Storage
OnePlus 11 does not offer expandable storage, and you have to rely on the factory set 128 GB storage or 256 GB storage to store all your data. This means that even after purchasing the OnePlus 11, a buyer may have to buy extra cloud storage from Google or OnePlus itself. It will ultimately result in the buyer paying more for the device.
4- Lack of Colour Options
OnePlus 11 comes in only two colours- Eternal Green and Titan Black. On the other hand, other android devices and Apple iPhones are available in many different colours. People who are not a particular fan of black and green when it comes to smartphones should definitely look for an alternative that can match their persona and style.
5- Unattractive Design
The design of the OnePlus 11 is quite ugly from the rear, to say the least. We are not a big fan of the huge camera bump that the OnePlus 11 sports with Hasselblad printed on it. The smartphone does not give a premier look which a buyer certainly expects if he/she is willing to spend more than Rs 56,999 for a smartphone.
6- 120 Hz Refresh Rate
OnePlus has 6.7 inches Super-Fluid AMOLED display that comes with a 120 Hz refresh rate. On the other hand, the competitors of the OnePlus 11 have a 144 Hz refresh rate which gives the users an ultra-smooth experience while using the smartphones. OnePlus is surprisingly not providing a 144 Hz refresh rate display. We can’t think of any reason that may have compelled OnePlus to include a 120 Hz refresh rate display.
