I have been using it for about a week now. First off let’s get through the unboxing real, quick sliding the sleeve off. When you open the box, you’re greeted with an envelope that houses the sim ejection tool, a safety guide, a quick guide, we can see all the 4g lte bands that are available here, including glue 4g bands. 28. We have a transparent, cpu case, let’s, keep it to the side. For now you have the smartphone wrapped in plastic. Let’S take this out and the sticker on the back. This is the fantastic purple color. It also comes in fluid black and crystal silver there’s. A screen protector already applied i’m. Just going to take this out. I always say this: you should replace it with a tempered glass let’s. Try on that case, oppo’s proprietary cases that come in the box are unique because, aside all the necessary cutouts and protecting the camera bomb, they’re also raised on all sides to protect the display too definitely slam boy certified in the bottom compartment. We have a hefty 30 watt fast charger, a usb type c cable and a pair of earphones pretty much the same ones that shipped with the a93 on the front. You have a 6.43 inch full hd plus oled display with 20 by nine aspect ratio on the top left corner. It has a punch, hole cutout that houses the 32 megapixel camera on the back. You have a 48 megapixel quad camera setup with flash and some oppo branding at the bottom on the left.
You have your volume rocker and a three in one tray that holds two 4g lte nano sims and an sd card on the right. You have a power button on the top. You have a microphone on the bottom. You have a speaker, a usb type c port, a microphone and a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack. The renault 5f has a super slim design that is carved all the way into the frame. They all blacked out wide camera layout makes it easy to tell it, apart from the pro model, and also the renault 5s back and frame are made from plastic it’s relatively lightweight, it shares almost identical dimensions with the a93. However, you cannot use the same case on both because of the slight shift in the power button placement, this fantastic purple, color catches, all kinds of reflection, but mostly blue purple and green. I think it’s a little too hippy for me, but you guys love colors right on the front. This phone has a tiny bezel, but not tiny enough. The display is brilliant, colors pop off and it is bright outdoors and could get very dim indoors. All the range we want only thing missing here is faster refresh rate for smoother scrolling, as this gets the standard 60 hertz. The renault 5f comes with 128 gigs of storage and 8 gigs of ram. You get about 112 gigs of available storage. We are running on android 11, with color os version 11.
1 slapped on top of it. You have your usual bloatware and most of them can be uninstalled. I have shared a lot about colors in my past oppo phone review, so let’s get into what’s new. With this version, the quick settings have gotten even busier. We get an app lock feature which is as easy as selecting whichever apps you’d like to add an extra layer of protection to it works with your pin, fingerprint and even your face. So if you set up your phone to unlock with your face, you get very little delay, while opening apps, as you can see here now, let’s try it out facing it away from my face and then on my face by the way the oppo a93 has gotten The android 11 update and colos version 11 pushed to it, so it also comes with new features which is accessible right here from your quick settings. The renault 5f uses the mediatek helio p95 octa core cpu, clutter 2.2 gigahertz and is the same one. On the renault 3 pro and the a93, this processor may not be the latest and greatest in 2021, but it is such a reliable, mid range, chipset and it’s a class ahead of the hello g80, having used it as my daily driver, the renault 3 pro, and Now my secondary phone, the a93 – i can say with certainty that the integration is so good. Apps may not open the fastest, but it runs pretty smoothly.
We don’t get lag and slowdowns while your favorite apps are up and running. The fingerprint sensor is situated underneath the display and oppo claims it’s an improved version. 3.0. However, the accuracy seems about the same as the oppo a93. What i think improved is the speed with which you can lock and unlock in quick succession. Like you, just locked your phone and immediately decide to unlock it, that’s where the renault 5f is actually faster. So if you’re a very impatient person, you may notice this type of improvement. The face unlock is devilishly fast and devilishly, accurate in every type of lighting when it comes to security. There’S such a thing as too much of a good thing, because it will also unlock with your side view, and that makes it less secure, here’s how the speaker compares side by side, the oppo, a93s Music. When it comes to gaming. As usual, i played pop g on hd, graphics and high frame rates, the highest pop g setting for this phone. I also tested game space where you have a couple of features i use the highest setting, because why not? You can also call up whatsapp or facebook, messenger record, screen, etc. Pubg actually ran smoothly, and i averaged around 30 fps. I think people playing on phones with higher refresh rates and touch sampling rates, like the pro models, are probably going to smoke you because they clearly have the advantage. The renault 5f is powered by 4 310 milliamp hour battery, which is a little above average in 2021.
In terms of capacity that is in reality, the battery lasts a long long time. I have high expectations from oppo when it comes to battery life, and i was not disappointed standby battery when idol is also great. I got 11 hours of screen on time with 9 left to spare a lot of that. Time was spent playing pop g and using the camera two activities that aren’t forgiving when it comes to battery life. The battery usage ui, however, needs to get back to its roots. I think i speak for everyone when i see users want to see the battery graph on the next colorways version. It took me 26 minutes to charge from zero to 60 percent and 56 minutes. For a full charge with the quick charger that came in the box, vogue flash charge 4.0 is no joke guys. So whatever you do, don’t lose that charger. The renault 5s camera comes packed with a lot of ai based filters. Pro mode time lapse, slow mo night mode, portrait, video and a new feature well new to oppo called the dual view: video which records from both the front and back cameras. At the same time, let’s see some photos, let’s start with the primary camera. The skin tones and texture is so rich. This camera makes you look more good looking without making the photo soft or blurry with portrait mode. The depth sensing is just too good to be true, or maybe i don’t have enough hair to challenge this camera.
You also get a few interesting ai portrait options. I used to go crazy for features like this, but now i don’t think i am the target market for it. The selfie camera has a well balanced exposure level, but it is also giving me over sharpened, processed skin tones and brown aesthetics. Very typical of mid range phones, portrait mode – is pretty average, plays it safe by not cropping my ear, but it doesn’t blow. The entire background by implication. Remember that extra hd feature on the a93 that basically combines pixels to give you a 108 megapixel image. Well, it’s. Also here – and i think it is basically doing the absolute most, however, images get as heavy as 18 megabytes and in most scenarios to the average user it would make a difference. Dynamic range on here is great and landscape images, look stellar saturated to perfection. Well, if you want a less saturated or flat image, there’s always pro mode to tinker with the wide angle. Lens looks pretty basic. The macro lens, however, is respectable. I don’t expect so much from macro lenses, but let it at least be decent let’s go inside i’m, not as impressed with the camera indoors, as i was with the outdoor shots. I think the selfie camera favors brightness over color accuracy and the primary camera needs some of that excess brightness from the selfie camera. The selfie camera could be the better camera depending on how much light is in the room.
They both need a lot of light to work properly. I used the selfie night mode with and without screen flash and also compared the night mode of the primary camera, with one of the best smartphone cameras in existence, the google pixel 5 and see how dangerously close it came. The night mode also has some interesting ai filters, which, for some reason, i thought astra will add some stars to the sky, because astrography mode on the pixel does guess not. It records videos in 4k from the back camera and 1080p from the front Music. So this is the ultra steady mode, so now we can see shake around run around yeah. So this is the front facing camera of the oppo renault 5f shooting in 1080p, with the front facing camera and i’m going to switch on the steady mode. So you can see what that looks like wow now, we’re using the ultra steady mode from the front facing camera and i’m just going to walk around or maybe should i run to show you guys so i’m currently testing out the portrait video mode. So this is what you get when you’re trying to take a video using portrait mode, basically just blurring out everything at the back and focusing on Music. So now we are testing out the dual view: video mode which basically uses the front camera and the back camera to record at the same time. So, if you’re, showing what you’re, looking at and you’re vlogging out and about honestly i’m, not sure how the oppo renault 5f fits into oppo’s mid range selection, considering that it shares a lot of the same specs as the oppo a93, it does charge up twice as Fast and spot, some extra camera features that a93 doesn’t have even after the update, but the a93 is better for taking in those selfies you’re wondering if you need to upgrade from the a93 or renault 3 pro.
The answer is no, because it is only an incremental upgrade at best, if you’re, already saving up for the oppo a93, then you can consider this instead. The renault 5 f is priced at 129 900 naira, which converts to 270 us dollars. If you enjoyed this video, please give it a thumbs up and share.
