OnePlus 11 5G: powerful smartphone with good value for money
OnePlus offers a particularly powerful smartphone here thanks to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. We love its smooth navigation, good battery life, LTPO screen that refreshes from 1 to 120Hz, and its price as the OnePlus 11 5G is available for less than $1,000. Euro.
