The most compelling arguments in favor of purchasing the Oppo Reno 7 Pro 5G are the eye-catching Startrails design that can be seen on the device's rear, as well as the phone's generally sleek appearance. In spite of having 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage space, the Mediatek Dimensity 1200 Max CPU is not a flagship level performer. However, it is sufficient for getting through everyday work. When it comes to color, you have the option of selecting between Starlight Black or Startrails Blue. Starlight Black has a somewhat more muted appearance, which some people could find more appealing. You will find a clear plastic case, an accompanying USB-C cable, and Oppo's unique 65W fast charging brick inside the package when you purchase this product.
One of the most impressive looks that we've seen on a smartphone so far in 2018 can be found on the Oppo Reno 7 Pro 5G. Despite the fact that the design is still a primary focus of the Reno 7 Pro, it unequivocally breaks away from the Reno series' traditional persona. In example, the curved edges, which had been featured on the Reno 4 Pro since its release in 2019, have been replaced with a design that is more boxy and flat. A blue notification light that surrounds the bump that houses the back camera can be seen on the Reno 7 Pro, which is another distinctive design element that is not seen very often these days. The device's thickness of 7.5 millimeters makes it feel excellent in the hand. The rear of the gadget has laser-etched lines that provide a little of grip, and the absence of fingerprints is not at all a problem with this device. Despite this, the device's actual notification light stands out as the most innovative aspect of its design.
A 6.5-inch AMOLED display that runs at 90 Hz can also be found on the smartphone. While this isn't the nicest display we've seen in this price bracket, it's also not a deal killer by any means. The fact that a tablet of this price range does not have a refresh rate of 120Hz is disappointing, but the display is capable of displaying HDR10+ video. Casual games might be played on the gadget despite the fact that it was not designed to handle intense gaming. Sideswipe works wonderfully all the time. It is important to note, however, that the Mediatek Dimensity 1200 Max SoC is not a new innovation; rather, it is a feature that was included in the Reno 6 Pro from the previous year.
During the course of the Oppo Reno 7 Pro 5G's marketing campaign, the device's camera setup has been one of the primary areas of emphasis. There is a triple camera configuration located on the rear of the smartphone. It consists of a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 wide sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 2-megapixel macro lens. We've installed a 32-megapixel Sony IMX709 RGBW self-portrait camera on the front of the device. During the day, it is able to snap photographs that, to no one's surprise, have a fantastic appearance. These photographs have a color palette that is neutral, and they have an outstanding dynamic range. And despite the difficult low-light conditions, it is still able to keep stray highlights under control. The portrait mode of the camera allows for a great deal of personalization. You may change the degree of blur to get an appearance that is more realistic. If you turn off the default smoothing function, the 32-megapixel selfie camera offers fantastic photos with realistic skin and color rendering. However, this is only the case if you disable the feature.
A battery with a capacity of 4500 mAh can be found built within the Oppo Reno 7 Pro 5G, and the 67W Super-VOOC charger can be found in the device's packaging. The phone unquestionably lives up to the company's boast that it can charge from 0% to 100% in little more than half an hour. Under typical circumstances of use, you shouldn't ever have to be concerned about the amount of time the battery will last.
SOFTWARE AND THE PROCESSOR
Oppo's Color OS is the one and only area in which the company should really consider making improvements. Oppo's proprietary skin on top of Android 11 is now in its 12th edition and is in desperate need of a thorough spring cleaning. Color OS itself is bloated and lacks the flair that comes with Samsung's elegant One UI, despite the fact that the company's goal is to provide customers the flexibility to personalize their devices to the greatest extent feasible. The animations are sluggish, and vibrations during the process of exiting programs may occasionally be seen. This particular device that we are evaluating comes equipped with a Mediatek Dimensity 1200 Max (an enhanced version of the Dimensity 1200 that is featured in the Reno 6 Pro), 12 Gigabytes of Random Access Memory (RAM), and 256 Gigabytes of storage space. RAM Expansion is a feature that sets the RAM management system on the Oppo Reno 7 Pro 5G apart from other similar systems. The options for the RAM Expansion may be found by going into the device settings and navigating to the 'About Device' menu item from there. The default 12GB of random access memory (RAM) on the device may be expanded here.
Simply said, the Oppo Reno 7 Pro 5G is a respectable smartphone for the middle of the spectrum, but it comes with a hefty price tag and a gorgeous design. The Reno 7 Pro 5G is clearly outclassed by competitors in the same price range when it comes to specifications, despite the fact that it will provide you with the dopamine rush you want and get gushing praises for its appearance. Although some of the offered characteristics represent a nice improvement over those of the Reno 6 Pro from the previous year, the hardware package is not competitive when compared to the absolute best that is now available. The Reno 7 Pro will be up against even more formidable rivals.
