Oppo Reno 3 Pro Review: A Mid-Range Smartphone That Focuses On Its Six Cameras
The smartphone was launched rigidly in China last year, bringing 5g support but it’s important to note that the Indian model will only support 4G. Other specs are going to be nearly identical to the Chinese model, though, like the 4 rear, mounted, camera sensors and large notch lists AMOLED display, but first got my attention was the beautifully simple design language. You have four cameras stacked on top of each other in the upper left hand, corner and it’s balanced by Sun Oppo branding in the bottom right corner. Behind. All of that is what Oppo is calling the auroral blue gradient. That, I think, looks great in my opinion. Even if the design of the phone as a whole is fairly boring, this gradient helps provide some special pizzazz. The phone does have a tall 20 by 9 aspect ratio, so it fits comfortably in one hand, but some people may have issues reaching the top of the display with one hand, since it is on the taller side. There are no frills like curved edges, but we do have a headphone jack that’s, pretty refreshing to see these days. To be honest, we have a large 6.4 inch Super AMOLED display with a 1080 by 2400 resolution and a maximum brightness of 800 nits there’s. No, not we do have a hole punch cut out for the world’s first 44 megapixels selfie camera with a 2 megapixel depth sensor. There are some good viewing angles. You know. Content appears sharp and vibrant it’s, not the most vibrant display nor the smoothest, since it only has a standard 60 Herz refresh rate, but for the price it’s not too bad at all.
There is an in display fingerprint scanner, but the phone will prompt you to use face unlock when you set it up. It’S, not the most secure method of unlocking your phone. So do keep that in mind, but one little aesthetic I really like about face unlock is that they’ve added a glowing effect around the camera cutout when you unlock the phone and speaking of the cameras, four of them protrude from the rear of the phone there’s, a Main 64 megapixel camera sensor with an F 1.7 lens, a 13 megapixel F, 2.4 2x telephoto sensor, an 8 megapixel F, 2.2 ultra wide and a 2 megapixel Chrome sensor. I’Ve had this phone for over a month, but I wanted to hold off on the review until the final camera. Software was updated and pushed out on March 5th. Now that the final software is installed, I will say the camera app does run fairly well, I haven’t noticed a ton of lag when swiping through settings we’ll see that we have the options of ultra wide 1 X, 2 X, 5, X, 10, X and 20x zoom And, to my surprise, image quality is fairly sharp all the way up to 5 times. Zoom 20x zoom is isn’t as sharp, but it’s still impressive, considering the chickens or our chickens, you see here in my backyard, are probably about 40 to 50 feet away. I think the best zoom to quality ratio would have to be 5x zoom.
You can still get some pretty good. Looking shots main camera images come out looking sharp and properly exposed. In most cases, although there were some shots that were noticeably more washed out – and I did have to override the auto mode a few times because it tended to over – expose the subject, but you can see the sky is well exposed. In the background of some of my outdoor shots, which is something that many low to mid tier smartphone cameras have a tough time doing where the cameras do struggle is in low light. You’Ll see some subjects become increasingly noisy. As light becomes scarce, I will say you can capture some pretty good, looking selfies with this selfie camera. I think the lens could be wider, but images themselves have plenty of detail and they look sharp and clear. The portrait mode does a pretty good job filtering the foreground from the background, but it does tend to make images appear more contrasted like my hair is darker in this mode for some reason and the software really tries to smooth out your skin, whether you like it Or not, you can you can crank the setting down. It still feels like there’s some artificial smoothing going on here in the software overall. The cameras are very impressive for the price. On the software side of things, the phone is running a very heavy skin of color OS 7, which some may welcome, as it typically means more features than what pure Android offers.
But I generally see it as more things that can go wrong and need to be tweaked. The UI is very two dimensional with square icons, there’s a system wide dark mode and a bunch of miscellaneous features in the settings drawer, like a multi user mode and a doc vault, which is a secure way to access documents. It was actually launched to support the Indian government’s digital India plan that helps bring government services to citizens electronically, so that’s kind of cool, especially since this phone is launching in India and in terms of power, the mediatek helio p95 processor, with 8 gigabytes of RAM. It helps keep this phone running well overall, but it won’t provide as much power as something like a oneplus device like the oneplus 60, which is coming in at a similar price. It feels like the heavy software skin is keeping this phone back from running as smooth as some other devices I’ve used. It definitely doesn’t feel slow, but it also doesn’t feel blazing fast and there will be some little software hiccups here and there. The battery life has been able to last me all day with typical, moderate usage of check and social media and internet browsing. It features a four thousand 25 milliamp hour cell that’s, definitely on the big side, and it supports 30 watt fast charging that can charge the phone up in just under an hour. The only major con I see in this department is that there’s no support for wireless charging at just over 400 and destined for India.
The Oppo Reno 3 Pro sits right between the premium flagships and the entry level devices, while the performance and display may not be as well rounded as something like a oneplus device, and the software can be a bit much for some users. Oppo clearly nailed the cameras and the battery life to features that often get neglected in phones in this price range I’ll place a link in the description if you want to learn more about this device, otherwise I’ll do my best to answer your questions in the comment Section down below, as always, I’m Bo HD from phone calm thanks for watching. I hope you enjoyed this video and I’ll.
