Review of the Oppo Reno 4 Pro 5G

The most popular model in the present Reno 4 series, the Reno 4 Pro 5G slots it into the top ten of the best phones made by the company in 2020. It is also a leader in design and innovation.

The Reno series has always put an emphasis on factors like camera design and design and the top of the latest batch including that of the Oppo Reno 4 Pro 5G and the Oppo Reno 4 Pro 5G not being an exception.

Oppo has surpassed what could as a roughly biannual release schedule for its Reno line, so the difference between the versions that are in the Reno 3 to Reno 4 (and in fact, the upcoming Reno five) Series’ will seem like a step back for those considering whether it is worth upgrading in the series from the previous generation or.

The case for Reno 4 Pro 5G, the Reno 4 Pro 5G specifically (notably an entirely different model from those running LTE on the Reno 4 Pro), Oppo has effectively mingled some of the best parts that it has gathered from the Find X2 and Find X2 Neo smartphones to create a device that makes up for the differences, while also displaying some more striking designs as well.

Design and construction

“Reno Glow” are two words that symbolize the final product of seven patents and six months of development and research The result is that Oppo is keen to inform people about the new surface finish that will be featured with the Reno 4 (styled as “Reno4” by the way) line in a massive way.

While the ins and the outs of its surface may be a bit too much of an extraneous detail for consumers to pay attention to but there’s no doubt about the truth that Reno 4 Pro 5G is an attractive phone.

While not included in Space Black, it is not present in the Space Black model (we’ll get the reason in a minute) both the colorway of the poster child which is Galactic Blue (pictured) – as well as The Pantone exclusive edition Glitter Green model, feature the unique look.

In terms of aesthetics, the rear is visually appealing, and the back of Reno 4 Pro 5G unquestionably is noticeable from the rest in the Galactic Blue guise. It has a reflective silver-to-dark blue gradient that runs diagonally across the back of the phone which has a nearly shimmering quality, paired with a (pulling from the public press announcement) “crystal drill technique (that) produces millions of micron-sized Prisma the formation of crystal pits.”

A long-story-short story, the Reno Glow look is strikingly distinctive and exclusive, and Oppo’s belief in the design is evident (to some extent). It also claims that it’s “fingerprint-proof,” which is an assurance indeed. Yes, oily fingers typically leave the rear side of Reno 4 Pro 5G unmarked this is awe-inspiring and confirms their faith in the effort they put into the job.

Space Black Space Black model takes the style of the phone in a new direction, using an essentially polished glass finish which does, unfortunately, does hold on to prints. To compensate for this issue the phone comes with the reflective rainbow finish that catches the light, and a subtle repeating pattern of ‘OP that evokes Louis Vuitton’s iconic Monogram prints on canvas, giving the phone quality.

There aren’t any boring color choices on Reno 4 Pro 5G. Reno 4 Pro 5G, basically, you have the option of fingerprints or the absence of fingerprints. If, of course, you choose to put on the transparent case that is flexible, which will make this decision a non-issue in the event that you’re happy with the additional thickness that the case will add.

Beyond its appearance beyond its finish, beyond its finish, the 4 Pro 5G offers an extremely slim appearance (just 7.6mm) which is assisted by the curvature Gorilla Glass on the back and front as well as the surprisingly lightweight of its hand (at 172 grams) given the size of the display.

The only notable omissions are any kind of IP-certified resistance to water, and the headphone jack, with the distinctive camera bump with three sensors on the back of the device, extends well beyond the case included.

Audio and display

The phone’s 6.55in wide display with a 20:9 aspect ratio is an absolute delight to behold in the context of consuming media. The AMOLED technology that is used (and the support of HDR10) provides you with great viewing angles and brightness, as well as vibrant colors, dynamic range, and a clear contrast, with authentic blacks.

A 90Hz refresh speed is a secret ingredient that makes make Reno 4 Pro 5G feel very fresh and with super-smooth images while navigating the phone’s user interface helped by the phone’s fast animations and a much more sensitive (than many sixty-second refresh rates) with a touch response rate of 180Hz that has the potential of giving gamers an advantage when playing fast-reaction games such as CoD: Mobile.

When it comes to gaming, a feature of the screen that is likely to be a source of contention for the potential Reno 4 Pro 5G owners is the decision of Oppo to give the cover glass with a slight curvature.

On the other hand, it offers the most premium, cutting-edge design and feels nice under the finger while swiped, however, it also offers your fingers less space to hold the phone, which increases the possibility of accidental touches and missed taps that can be extremely frustrating when gaming.

The experience of viewing is enhanced with the help using the handset’s Eye Comfort mode, which is designed to decrease eyestrain and blue light emission, in addition to fine-grain control over general color temperature and representation of the color. You can select between “Vivid” viewing which is activated as a default (representing 100 percent of the DCI P3 color space) or ‘Gentle’ to get a more subtle view within the sRGB color range.

To achieve an elegant design, and with those metal edges that are thin there are fingerprint sensors, however isn’t readily apparent until you put your thumb on the lower area of the display. is.

The under-display biometrics function effectively enough to ensure your phone is safe by providing an intense white light shining on your thumb every time you need to unlock your phone. This isn’t the most efficient sensor, however, if you’re willing to sacrifice a bit on safety, RGB face unlock is an alternative that uses the camera on the front of the phone for a quick transition from sleep to the home screen in a flash.

For audio, we’ve spoken about the absence of a headphone jack, but Oppo has included a pair of USB-C white headphones in the box that come equipped with an integrated remote as well as a microphone. They actually produce decent sound quality for the in-box buds as well.

It’s also worth mentioning the speaker setup, which surpasses its standard 4G’s mono speaker, with stereo speakers that provide impressively full sound given how light the phone is.

This stereo split is a mirror for the majority of the modern dual-speaker phone configurations, with bass coming from the down-firing speaker, and treble pumped more directly from the earpiece’s loudspeaker. However, the balance is more unified with this model than it is on other smartphones that have this feature in the market.

The inclusion of one-handed mode, as well as icons pull-down to, is extremely useful for speedier access to the interface of the 6.55in screen one-handed. Plus, advanced users will appreciate features such as that Smart Sidebar for quick access to their favorite tools, apps, and multitasking with split screens.

There are a handful of preloaded Oppo applications that need to do a little more to justify their placement in your phone’s memory, however. Game Space helps direct resources and divert notifications during playing on the Reno as well as Oppo Relax is the company’s own mindfulness app, which comes with music, lights, and breathing exercises that help you relax and help you relax your day If you’re interested in that kind of thing.


Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G is undoubtedly to be one of the more intriguing mobile processors in 2020, in addition to being it’s among the most flexible currently available.

The Snapdragon 865+ isn’t the most powerful mobile silicon. That title belongs to Snapdragon 865+. Snapdragon 865+, for at the very least, until you begin getting phones sporting the recently-launched Snapdragon 888 on the market however the 765G is discovered in a range of phones from flagship models (Google Pixel 5 LG Wing), up to the boundary between budget and mid-range (with models such as those from the Realme X50 5G), and always delivers.

It’s capable of ensuring that the Reno 4 Pro 5G is like any PS1000or premium Android phone, aided by a plethora of memory, including the form of 12GB RAM (as tested) in contrast to 865/865+-powered phones, it comes with a 5G modem integrated to increase power efficiency as well.

Oppo Reno 4 Pro 5G benchmarks

For artificial benchmarks, it operates in a consistent manner against other devices with 765G power such as Oppo’s Find X2 as well as Lite as well as similar devices like The OnePlus Nord. It’s not as good at providing the same performance as the less expensive Reno 4Z‘s MediaTek chip, however, it does bring the heat in terms of graphics power.

The variations presented on paper by such devices don’t translate into actual-world differences at all, given being powered by the Snapdragon processor and huge quantities of RAM it comes with the ability to guarantee long-lasting, consistent performance for anyone looking for an item that lasts.

Battery and charging

Although there’s a calming equilibrium across the Reno 4 Pro 5G’s features set, one of the highlights is its ability to charge fast; using Oppo’s SuperVOOC 2.0 technology onboard, it can deliver the impressive 65W rapid charging speed.

Although our battery tests have seen the phone occasionally linger at 99% a long time, it’s still able to keep the battery at 99% to be precise, for all purposes, you’ll be able to fill your Reno 4 Pro 5G’s cell within half an hour flat, and you’ll be at two-thirds of its capacity after only fifteen minutes.

In our tests, a total duration that was 11 hours, 50 minutes was impressive, but real-world screen-on times came in at just five hours. This is still enough to make it through an entire day with a good amount of time to your credit even if it is the case that you do notice that your battery is getting anxious in, we’ve shown that it only takes a few minutes to fix the problem of “low power” because of the lightning-fast SuperVOOC charging.


The triple camera configuration on the back of the phone is flanked by the long-running Sony IMX586 camera – it’s a 48Mp snapper that takes the 12Mp resolution of pixel-binned stills, by default. The Reno 4 Pro, comes equipped with OIS (optical image stabilization) as well as laser autofocus.

There’s also a 12-Mp (IMX708) ultrawide, whose ties are actually in video capture thanks to a unique native aspect ratio of 16:9. This rear-facing array is completed by the 13Mp telephoto snapper with 2x optical zoom but allows 5x hybrid zoom (and up to 20x lossy digital zoom).

If you’re looking for stills to shoot, Oppo has accomplished a superb job in getting the most value from the aging IMX586 with great detail, appealingly rich colors, and an impressive dynamic range when shooting standard photos.

The first step is to get the detail to be lost in dim lighting, however, even in low light, the results aren’t as bad in the same way as they are on similar phones, and Oppo’s Night mode can be used to restore some fidelity to these photos.

There’s a significant difference in the science of color work on the main sensor and ultrawide which is why it’s necessary to correct the color in post-production for those who want to include photos from both sensors in one album.

In terms of video, it is possible to expect smooth footage that has the capability to eliminate shake to a remarkable extent with the help of the nearly-GoPro-like ultra Steady mode. OIS for this camera (which is available on the Oppo Find X2) would have boosted things a less, but instead, it’s accomplished through EIS (electronic stabilized image) just – however that’s the place where some of the extra cash that the X2 requires from you be spent.

Another feature of the sensor includes Ultra Night Mode, which also allows Night modes stills can create situations that the majority of phones would throw in the towel on but are still taken, edited, and posted on social media. The more expensive iPhone 12 Proline is able to capture such a fascination in this segment of mobile videography, which makes Reno an outstanding alternative at least in this particular aspect.

The phone’s face unlock feature is made possible by a front-facing camera of 32Mp that is situated in the corner of the display. It’s adequate for selfies and doesn’t mess around too often with regard to edge detection. There’s a significant drop in the color of videos with this front camera, however, which stands in Reno 4 Pro 5G. Reno 4 Pro 5G is more than rivals due to the rear camera’s capabilities in the video.

Prices and availability

While Oppo released their Reno 4 line into its local market of China in June however, it wasn’t until late October that phones began to be available in other markets and into Europe as well as the UK.

It’s Reno 4 Pro 5G sits at the top of the Reno class and, it comes with an RRP of just PS699. In its brief period of existence, the device is already receiving discounts, such as PS50 off both as well as Amazon at the moment of writing.


In the absence of context, you could be fooled into thinking that the Oppo Reno 4 Pro 5G is as good an absolute flagship as any PS1000+ phone. It’s pretty for looking at and pleasant to use has a powerful processor, is equipped with a powerful three-camera setup and most recent features, including high-resolution display, 5G connectivity, and charging at 65W.

Although the PS699 price seems at a competitive price and not a necessity unless you’re certain you require this exact formula of design and performance you don’t need to sacrifice anything to get important savings.

For a surprisingly low price, the Find X2 Neo offers just a slight reduction in-camera capabilities and a more modest 30W fast-charging option, but it still offers almost every other feature of the Reno 4 Pro 5G.

If you’re not looking for Reno’s ability to capture video and you’re looking for a more affordable alternative, the OnePlus Nord doesn’t skimp on performance and provides what’s likely to be a better user experience, in the form that of Oxygen OS, for closer to half the cost.
