The "1-Minute" Review

Verdict

A fair camera, nice screen, and slim design are things that other mid-rangers have already conquered for a cheaper price tag. If the price isn’t a concern, however, the phone offers a great user experience.

What's good

  • Superfast charging
  • Great design
  • Decent performance

What's bad

  • Too expensive
  • No wireless charging
  • No water/dust resistance rating

The Oppo family of mid-range phones is making a big splash. The Oppo Reno4 Pro, Reno4 5G and the Reno4 Z all have similar features with a different twist for each design. So is the Reno7 Pro best for you? Here’s how it stacks up.

Design

The most significant part of this phone’s design is the glass and metal chassis, which lends a decidedly premium feel. Reviews noted that it’s also incredibly thin and light.

However, reviewers said that using the included case was essential for making sure the phone stayed put when set down as it’s quite slippery. The back has a vertical camera bezel closer to the side than the middle but isn’t overly large or problematic.

If you like to customize your phone, the Oppo Reno4 Pro 5G is available in two colors: Galactic Blue and Space Black.

Display

Measuring 6.5-inches, the phone’s 90Hz AMOLED screen features Gorilla Glass 6 treatment for excellent scratch and crack resistance. Reviewers noted it’s not the sharpest screen. The “vivid” color profile it ships with is also quite oversaturated. However, switching to the gentle screen mode received better reviews.

As long as color accuracy isn’t essential, the screen gets good reviews. It has excellent contrast and more than enough brightness for most environments.

Performance

The phone impressed reviewers with its pairing of solid processing power with a high refresh rate display. While it doesn’t have the most up-to-date processor available, it is still quite snappy and responsive, thanks to the 12GB of RAM. It should handle gaming, multi-tasking, and more with no problems.

Software & Storage

The Oppo Reno4 Pro runs ColorOS over top of Android 10 for extra utilities and easy to get to shortcuts. However, Oppo chose not to include an option for storage expansion, such as a MicroSD slot, which is an odd choice given the phone’s price.

Cameras

The three-camera bump on the phone’s back houses 48MP primary, 12MP ultra-wide, and 13MP telephoto lenses. When tested, the camera did well enough as long as you had steady hands. Any shaking would distort images -- especially in night mode with its extended exposure timer.

Reviewers said that without the right lighting, the photos could become washed out and lack contrast. Also, the ultra-wide lens fits more in a shot, but at the cost of overall quality. Still, with a good eye and a steady hand, this is nothing a little bit of photo editing couldn’t fix.

Battery Life

While the battery size may come in lower than many high-end smartphones on the market, the super-fast charger makes up for it. The 65W charging is speedy and, when tested, brought the battery from dead to full in just 30 minutes.

If you’re a light-to-moderate user, there shouldn’t be any issue getting through the day with the Oppo Reno4 Pro 5G. But if you like to play a lot of games or crank up your screen brightness, you might want to keep your charger handy to be safe.

Audio

The Oppo Reno4 Pro comes with two speakers on the top and bottom. While reviewers note they get loud enough and perform okay, you may still want a Bluetooth speaker or headphones for better quality. Since the phone doesn’t include a headphone jack, you might want a USB Type-C to 3.5mm adapter as well.

Specs at a Glance

  • Aluminum and glass chassis
  • 6.5-inch AMOLED display
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor
  • 12GB of RAM
  • Android 10 with ColorOS overlay
  • 256GB of storage
  • 48MP,12MP wide-lens, 13MP telephoto lens camera
  • 4,000mAh battery

Bottom Line

The Oppo Reno4 Pro feels comfortable in hand and performs well. With small highlights like clever shortcuts and button placement, there were a lot of wins. But reviewers were less thrilled about the price, with some saying the extra tweaks didn’t offer enough to justify its pricing. A fair camera, nice screen, and slim design are things that other mid-rangers have already conquered for a cheaper price tag. If the price isn’t a concern, however, the phone offers a great user experience.

Tech Radar says, “With its sleek looks and well-rounded feature set, the Reno 4 Pro 5G seems an appealing mid-range option until you look at the price tag. Aside from best-in-class 65W fast charging, nothing about the Reno 4 Pro 5G stands out in a fiercely competitive market space.”

Slash Gear stated, “While the performance of mid-tier devices has been catching up to high-end premium phones, especially in the 5G department, their photography performance still leaves a lot to be desired.”

What the Critics Are Saying...


IT Pro

With the Reno4 Pro 5G, Oppo has released an exquisitely-manufactured smartphone that’s fully capable in terms of its performance and photography, sitting between devices in the conventional premium and mid-range brackets.

On contract, this is a superb choice, if £30pcm was my max budget this would be one of my top choices. The SIM-free price is ridiculous when you can get almost the same performance from the Find X2 Neo for over 20% less money.

If you are in the market for a smartphone that has a premium build, looks good, and is comfortable to hold with many of the features associated with more expensive handsets, the Reno 4 Pro 5G is certainly worth splashing the cash. The AMOLED display shines and the cameras produce good results, relia...

DxOMark

The Oppo Reno4 Pro 5G offers very high-resolution 32 MP selfies characterized by stable and consistent focus with fairly good detail if you keep your face close to the screen. It’s fair to say it doesn’t really trouble the best mid-range front cameras we’ve tested for overall image quality, though....

DxOMark

Oppo’s latest headlining Reno may well be a premium mid-ranger smartphone, but when it comes to audio, it is only an average performer. That said, the 4 Pro 5G is extremely consistent, delivering an average performance in almost every sub-category of our Audio protocol. Its main weakness is a lack o...
