Oppo Reno 4 Pro 5G review: Design and key features

 now for me the oppo reno 4 pro was pretty much a case of love at first sight already first fondle because i love how slender and compact this thing is now versus the near 7 inch monsters that i've had to grapple with recently this felt a little beast definitely feels like an absolute breath of fresh air can you really see that something feels like a breath of fresh air now bollocks to it you can now so one-handed use is certainly a lot easier than with a lot of rivals apart from when you're trying to reach up to something at the top end of that display you do have some one-handed help here on the oppo reno 4 pro be unfortunately if you're using the old gesture navigation then that does make it a lot more awkward to activate the oppo reno 4 pro 5g is a good-looking wii bc2 reminiscent of many a samsung phone with its curved sides and those incredibly skinny bezels plus of course that seductive arse end you've got a choice of three different hues here you've got green glitter or galactic blue if you like a nice vibrant vivid finish otherwise if your style is a bit more batmany then check out the space black version instead and yeah that may sound kind of dull compared with the others but it's really brought to life with this rather spiffing rainbow effect and a subtle gradient pattern fades in and out of you as the light catches it just so and i can see that bit being rather love or hate i'm personally not a fan but it's hard to notice anyway now oppo seems to think that the only part of the radar 4 paw that's caught in a gorilla glass is the front end gorilla glass 5 just to help protect it from the elements stop it from getting scratched up although cordon who actually makes gorilla glass seems to think that both the front end and the back end is gorilla glass 5 well certainly it doesn't matter either way because that back end is proper durable the only damage so far is a tiny wii nick right down here at the bottom end of the phone and i've had it for a good two three months now and that's despite me whipping off the screen protector almost immediately and also i left that bundled condom case well alone just to see exactly how the oppo reno 4 pro would handle the elements and certainly it's been riding bareback and it has hold it up very well indeed sadly there isn't any water resistance here though so definitely don't go dunking it in the bath now boot up the oppo reno 4 pro 5g and you'll possibly be dispared to see that it's still running old android 10 even though we're now into 2021. a beta version of android 11 is now available for the oppo reno 4 pro though so hopefully it will actually start rolling out pretty damn soon and that should bring the lit's version of color os as well because we're still on version 7 here.

Oppo Reno 4 Pro 5G review: Software and features

 still old or otherwise i had no problems with the software here my apps all ran wonderfully and i didn't see any funny little bugs color os is still rather messy in places including the frankly terrifying settings menu but you do get some worthy bonus bits including some dependable face recognition to back up that in display fingerprint sensor and speaking of which that fingerprint sensor certainly isn't among the best that i've tested but i found it was generally all right as long as my hands weren't too dry or moist color aware still suffers from the usual foibles like that previously mentioned anxiety and juice and the messy settings menu but at least there's not much crap wear stuffed on this phone just the usual tools and that oppo relax app which can actually help you to recover after scouring the settings for something you need and i've got actually zero complaints when it comes to the media chops of the oppo reno 4 pro 5g beyond the irritating lack of a headphone jack that 6.5 inch amoled display is surrounded by super skinny bezels so the screen basically stretches edge to edge like with samsung's premium blowers that display does actually curve slightly around the edges just like with samsung's blowers as well and i did find that there were some sensitivity issues generally the oppo reno 4 pro 5g was fine when i was just browsing the web flicking through my various apps and everything my palm flesh didn't intrude on the screen and muck things up but i did find quite often when i loaded up the camera app and i was holding the phone in a horizontal position like so often but i tried hitting that shutter button it frankly just wouldn't respond until i adjusted my grip.

Oppo Reno 4 Pro 5G review: Screen and audio

 just so still that screen certainly pumps out stunning visuals the full hd plus resolution keeps images sharp and on vivid mode your eyeballs are full-on assaulted with pop-tastic colors although an srgb board is also on hand for more realistic hues if you need them the reno 4 pro screen is proper bright too so outdoor visibility certainly is not an issue and you can choose to have the renal for pro 5g boost up the refresh rate to 90 hertz whenever you're using a supported app or feature otherwise just leave it at that 90 hertz rate full time basically and certainly the super smooth visuals are an absolute treat albeit one you would definitely expect at this sort of price point and since it's an oled panel you've got full always on display privileges with a small selection of designs to choose between oh and a special shout out to this edge lighting feature which does this when you receive any notifications well golly gosh i think i may have just done a little accident and i gotta say i wasn't expecting too much from the stereo speakers setup here on the oppo reno 4 pro 5g probably just because it's so compact compared with a lot of premium rivals but bugger me blue did it do a bang-up job on top volume it's loud that earpiece speaker actually pumps out quite clear crisp audio also a tiny mess like on a lot of other rival smartphones with the so-called stereo speakers set up definitely great if you're just kicking back with a bit of netflix youtube whatever expert amaze fit is fast establishing itself as one of the leading brands when it comes to great budget friendly smart watches great stuff and i also had no issues whatsoever when it came to connecting a variety of speakers and headphones and whatnot via bluetooth 5.1 when i wanted to kick back with a blue music although admittedly i've had zero chance to actually stress test the sod when it comes to that side of things so hopefully it'll still perform well in a really busy public area once those become a thing again.

Oppo Reno 4 Pro 5G review: Performance and battery life

 now while some rivals like the oneplus 8 offer qualcomm snapdragon 865 at this price point the oppo reno 4 pro sadly makes do with a more budget-friendly snapdragon 765 g although it is backed here in the oppo reno  4 pro 5g by frankly ludacris 12 gigabytes of ram which is again something i'd expect more from a oneplus smartphone that 765g sadly isn't as future proof but as with google's pixel 5 i had no problems when it comes to performance multitasker with two apps is still a smooth experience and you can blaze your way through any android game out there including popular fare like call of duty on high detail levels while that display supports 180 hertz touch sampling so your frantic jabs and swipes are instantly registered owen oppo's game space tool is tops as usual offering all the usual features like notifications blocking so you've got no excuse beyond being a bit poor at games when you get your face blasted off by some damn dirty kid who should be bloody homeschooling just bear in mind that you can get a snapdragon 765g smartphone for half the price of this bad boy right now so performance is key for you you don't have to splash the cash and while you do have dual sim support here on the oppo reno 4 pro sadly it's only the first sim card that actually has 5g supported on it and that just appears to be sub 6 as well not millimeter wave the second sim is 4g only no beef when it comes to the storage though you've got a mighty 256 gigs rammed into that slender chassis so i'm nowhere near filling that up but just yet so i'm not really that bothered that there's no micro sd memory card support the oppo reno  4 pro's 4 000 milliamp battery seems kind of meager compared with many rivals but thankfully i found it was more than sufficient to get me through a long day almost every time a full charge normally delivers around seven to eight hours of screen on time that's with plenty of media streaming and all that good stuff as well i found that the only time the oppo reno 4 pro 5g almost ran dry before bedtime was when i made a lot of use of that camera especially during the likes of skyping and zooming and of course when the reno 4 pro 5g is fully drained you've got a super 2 point or 65 watt fast charge intake which will give you a full battery again from absolutely nothing in about half an hour just over but there is no support for wireless charging which is a bit of a shame if you're already on board with that.

Oppo Reno 4 Pro 5G review: Cameras

 now the triple lens camera slapped there on that rainbow ass is headed up by 48 megapixel sony imx 586 sensor and this can snatch good looking photos in pretty much any conditions from dawn to dusk complete with natural looking colors and plentiful detail even on those default 12 megapixel settings you've got a color boost mode that adds warmth to your photos at the expense of realism plus a portrait mode that delivers some sleek looking bokeh action and there's also a night mode that definitely helps out when the lighting is a bit cack the auto mod does a decent job in low light to be fair but the night mode does produce more detail and tempers lighter elements like a lot of premium smartphones these days you also get a telephoto shooter on the oppo reno 4 pro as well in this case a 13 megapixel effort that offers a three times optical zoom or a five times hybrid zoom at the three times zoom level everything still looks crisp but you will see some fuzz and grain appear at the five times level and the zoom lens is definitely best used in good lighting as night time use brings out even grainier photos and the reno 4 pro also sports a 12 megapixel ultra wide angle lens using a custom sony imax 708 sensor which like most rivals can't offer the same accurate color capture as that primary shooter when you're shooting video in daytime the reno 4 pro serves up just as good results as that photo mode at 4k resolution you can expect crisp visuals while audio pickup definitely gets a thumbs up too when it's darker you've got a special night mode which you can activate although this basically just morphs your footage from grainy and dark to rather bleached out so it's definitely much a case of out of the frying pan and into another just as burnley frying pan and you'll get very similar video results from the ultra wide angle lens as well despite the sensor reportedly being designed for nighttime video use last up that 32 megapixel selfie cam performs well in daylight and photos don't look too soft once you move indoors although i did find that my indoor portrait snaps came out weirdly grainy and outdoors the illusion wasn't quite perfect either but it's not too janky .

so that right there's my full review of the oppo reno 4 pro 5g as you can see it's not quite a perfect premium device it's a shim it does have a bit snapdragon 865 stuffed in there instead of the 765 which you can find on smartphones about half the price point but apart from that very few complaints that camera tech's really good the display is gorgeous the design is lovely and actually fairly compact of course at this sort of price you can also get the likes of the samsung s20 fan edition which also has the 5g support you've got the likes the oneplus ears of course pixel five you've got some very strong competition indeed so a lot of it sort of depends on how much you love up or how much you love color os but anyway that's my thoughts it'd be great to hear your own personal thoughts down below if you've been using the oppo reno 4 pro 5g definitely let me know how you begin big but but definitely let me know how to speak because apparently i've forgotten how to a please do poke christ please do pork subscribe ding that notifications bell and have yourselves a lovely week and i'm gonna go have a bit of a lie down frankly i think cheers everyone love you you.
