Oppo Reno 4 Pro 64w Fast charging review

  

Oppo Reno 4 Pro 64w Fast charging review

Oppo has operated two leading camera phones since the brand launched its smartphone line in Europe in 2019: the Reno 10X Zoom and Find X2 Pro.  

Both camera phones are excellent, impressive with large zooms, and Find X2 Pro even began to show Sony's brand new sensor, the IMX 689 when it was launched in early 2020.  

Although it cost £ 699 (about $ 900), the new Reno 4 Pro 5G is not a 'flagship'. Instead, it is a premium mix of high-end and midrange, intended for anyone who values ​​style more than students at high cost.

Launched next to the Reno 4 and Reno 4Z, the Reno 4 Pro sits at the top of Oppo's latest lineup. It packs a beautiful, large screen, among the thinnest designs on any current phone, and a large nippy charger - 65W, which translates to a full tank in less than 40 minutes.

What the Reno 4 Pro also sports is the midrange processor, the standard (most) camera sensor, the IMX 586, which has been around for years, and the 52mm phone camera - nothing like 5x here.  

Without flagship specs across the board, would its premium design be high enough to prove its value of £ 699; or is Oppo getting too punchy for its prices?


Design and screen

At 7.6mm thin, the first thing that strikes you about the Reno 4 Pro in its size - thin, light, and tall, it sounds like a solid glass sheet for a smartphone. Weighing in at just 172g, with the Gorilla Glass 6 curved front and rear, in hand, the Reno 4 Pro feels surprisingly different from most released phones. That means its formula is standard: front glass, rear glass and metal frame.  

The style is reminiscent of the OnePlus 7 Pro, only refined and thin, and available in Galactic Blue or Space Black. The Space Black version we have is a finger magnet, but if you opt for the Galactic Blue Reno 4 Pro, its matte finish protects the champ-like smudges.

At the bottom of the phone, the USB-C port is fitted with a SIM slot and speaker. Back to back, the two-sided camera cabin looks delicious, and on the front, with the exception of a small hole-punched camera, the Reno 4 Pro is all on screen.


Curved on both sides, the 6.55-inch screen has small side bezels and has only top and bottom bezels. With a resolution of 1080 x 2400, the 20: 9 aspect ratio follows the long 2020 phone trend. Most notable for the decision is the screen tech itself.  

Oppo has installed the AMOLED panel with HDR10 + support and a 90Hz refresh rate on the Pro. Likewise, the colors are zingy, the blacks are inky and the rolls and swipes look very smooth - it's a beautiful screen.


Cameras

 The main camera of the Oppo Reno 4 Pro is built with a 48MP resolution IMX 586 sensor, paired with f / 1.7 aperture and 26mm focal length. This is a very common currency, and we have seen it from Oppo many times. In addition, for now, it has been compared to OIS, laser AF, and PDAF, which suggests that image clarity will be on point.

There is also a 52MP phone camera with a length of 52mm and, also, OIS, and the ultrawide camera sensor is 12MP Sony IMX708 Sensor.  

With a 120-degree viewing field, it holds a lot of frame, but is also doubled as the main video camera, so sports AF, something that is often absent from ultra-wides.

With the resolution of the 32MP front camera and f / 2.4 lens, combined with a concentrated width, but not ultrawide 26mm, it captures molded, high-res images that fit 5-6MB each. The main camera shoots video up to 4K (30fps), while the front camera video comes out in Full HD (30fps).


Camera performance

The Oppo Reno4 Pro games are a standard set of shooting modes, including pro mode that offers shutter speeds of up to 32 seconds and a maximum ISO of 6400.

Data from Reno 4 Pro is not a problem. Its focus is usually on the money and its images look sharp, providing plenty of space to invest in them. Reno is no better than the pictures, which we love. In fact, Oppo has got a good color balance earlier in the Find X2 Pro, and we're glad it's moving beyond the cameras on the Reno 4 Pro - all three.

Where the IMX 586 tends to fall after a certain race the strongest range is in the dark sometimes - especially in the dark areas of shooting. Black cat fur, mahogany tables, and common black items can meet. The Reno 4 Pro may be the best launch of the IMX 586 we've seen, but the problem persists from time to time.  

The sound is well maintained in the port, and there is a night mode that does a good job, but calling the Reno 4 Pro a high-end camera phone is a stretch, with phones like the P30 Pro now costing around £ 599.

The ultrawide camera on the Reno 4 Pro is a strong image editor, clearly falling behind a large camera, but taking it out of the video park. Stabilization is excellent, sound management is decent and the EIS holds the interior space well together with a smartphone. 

 In fact, Oppo is taking another level of stability with this phone. Even if the pictures don't look clear a preview of the screen is kept together like glue, giving you as a photographer more confidence in your image.


As for the selfie camera, sharp, blurring in portrait mode and shooting video in Full HD, there is not much more you can say about this. With the exception of autofocus or 4K capture, it is not a visual one but completely competitive anyway.


 Additional specs

Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G, the Reno 4 Pro is able to do its best, without having to maintain high standards for the most important gaming consoles. The 765G is a midrange chip, available on Realme X50 5G (£ 299) and OnePlus Nord (£ 379).  

That said, you'll also find it on the Motorola RAZR 5G 2020 (foldable 1,399). For casual users, there are real benefits to the midrange chip - better battery performance and reduced costs to name a few. That said, right away, if you are a power hungry consumer, the interior of the Reno 4 Pro might leave you.

What will not get you out of the Reno 4 Pro is its final capacity. Moving with 256GB as usual, there is something to be said over the phone that may not give you a low storage warning. Additionally, 12GB RAM supports Snapdragon 765G from the operating viewing area.

With 5G mobile data speeds, future phone authentication, and Android 10 usage, app support is excellent. Stereo speakers join the power of an amazing screen to bring a great multimedia experience, and if you are installing an oil-soaked interface, the Reno 4 Pro is a pleasure to use. 

Battery

As for that battery, with a capacity of 4,000mAh, it stays a day of easy operation, and a full day if you use it carelessly. If you play with it, take a large number of photos or videos, or stream a video, the day will be stressful though.  

That said, charging very quickly - 35 minutes gets you from zero to 100 percent thanks to Oppo's 65W Super VOOC 2.0 technology. In context, the pricier iPhone 11 takes more than three hours to charge with a dedicated 5W charger.

Verdict

 The Oppo Reno 4 Pro is the only beauty. After all, it includes premium build, beautiful screen, stable performance, amazing fast charging, and decent camera, even if it’s not one of the best camera phones of 2020.

The $ 699 / £ 699 Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G is similar to the Reno but incorporates the power of a real flagship - the Snapdragon 865 with a sharp screen, wireless charging, and an IP waterproof rating.

For $ 100 / £ 100 less than the Reno 4 Pro, you can get the Pixel 5 5G. Google Phone pulls the telephoto camera, charges faster, and suspends half of the storage, but it adds wireless charging and, like Pixel, adds water resistance to this combination.  

It also incorporates Google's magic integration into image software that makes a point of shooting and shooting.

None of the above phones have Reno style though. If it had a slightly stronger or less expensive camera, it would have been a bit of a hassle, despite its midrange power.  

As it stands, its punchy prices will make it a perfect phone for some kind of user who ignores the specs and has an excellent camera, and more about design and good on all board smartphone information.
