 It seems that OPPO releases new iterations of its "Reno" series of middle-class phones very quickly, about every five to six months at the pace of a new series! In April 2019, the first Renault phone series appeared, then the Reno 2 series appeared later in August. Then came the launch of the Renault 3 series in March 2020, and roughly five months later, OPPO announced the worldwide launch of the new launches of the Renault 4 series of phones. In each version of the series, although the use of chips differs, all the phones have multiple rear cameras with several image enhancement features, which strengthens the phones of the Renault series as phones that focus onIn addition to the design and shape, more on imaging performance, along with everyday use performance as well. The hallmark that OPPO strives to retain in its various devices.
For smartphone manufacturers, the availability of internal phone modules, such as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 700 series chipset and Sony's IMX586 imaging sensor, has become a double-edged sword. On the one side, these components have the advanced features and functionality you find in the middle class, from flagship phones to phones. But the sudden proliferation of these phones in the middle class, on the other hand, made it hard to differentiate between them or to know which one outperforms the other. It also takes several creative measures to differentiate its phones from the rest of the phones on the market in design or in the marketing phase for the brand.
In our review of the Oppo Reno 4 Pro 5G phone that comes at the top of the latest Reno 4 list, let's take a more in-depth look to find out that we can also call a mid-range phone wearing a leading category suit that makes it glamorous.


The Renault 4 Pro 5G version comes with the specifications as follows:

6.5-inch AMOLED display with 2400 * 1080 pixel resolution, HDR10 + technology and 90Hz refresh rate.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chip, with an Adreno 620 graphics processor, supports NSA independent and non-independent 5G networks.
12 GB of random memory with an internal memory of 256 GB.
Autofocus Triple Laser Monitor: 48MP Main Camera (with IMX586 sensor). And super night video camera mode with an ultra-wide 12MP lens (with IMX708 sensor). And the 13-megapixel telephoto camera supports up to 5x mixed optical zoom and up to 20x digital zoom.
Resolution of 4K at 30 frames per second, resolution of 1080 and 720 at 30 or 60 frames per second.
Exactly 32 megapixels from the front camera.
4000 mAh battery with 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 technology for quick charging.
OS Color 72 (based on Android 10).

Design and screen

When choosing a new smartphone, what I personally care most about is the design, obviously the design and shape of the phone stays from personal tastes that vary from one person to another, but when choosing a new phone, OPPO tries to target those people who position design as a priority in the Renault 4 series and in the Renault series in general.
You can feel that it is of the foremost category from the first look at the handset, with a 3D curved screen design, without any edges and the front camera hole. I'm searching for a phone that's compact in thickness and light in weight, which is what the Renault 4 Pro 5G offers, and it's 7.6 mm thick and 172 grammes thick. In order to minimise OPPO's phone thickness, the inside of the main panel has been decreased by 15% compared to that of the Renault 3 Pro, thanks to the reduction of the spacing between the internal components, which has allowed the battery to increase and decrease its thickness by 5 mm.
The choice of design and light weight makes it easy to use the phone with one hand, and at that point, I did not experience any difficulty, especially for the location of the power key, which is located approximately in the middle of the height of the phone, you will find that the key is directly under your finger when you first pick up the phone with your hand.
As for the upper portion, it is a smooth metal frame containing a 5G antenna and a microphone slot, while the lower part includes a speaker grille, a USB-C port and a port for two SIM cards, but the Renault 4 Pro version does not have 5G unlike the Renault 4 Pro version. All other ports for external SD storage cards do not have a 3.5mm headphone jack and its wired headphone jack is not connected to the U U.
The version we tested is "sky blue" and this particular colour.
It comes with OPPO's "Reno Glow" technology, which the company mentions as an innovative method of creating and distributing millions of microscopic crystal pieces on the back glass surface of the phone, giving it unique colour gradients and new levels of light reflections. This technology is applied to the anti-reflective glass and is exclusive to the Renault 4 Pro 5G phone. In my opinion, the most important thing that distinguishes this function from a functional point of view and with regular usage is that it resists scratches and does not leave any fingerprints on the phone's back surface.
The camera consists of three lenses in a vertical line in the upper left corner, and when positioned on a flat surface, lifts the phone slightly to the top, but you will not note this height with the use of the transparent cover that comes with the phone.
About the screen
For the front side, the Renault 4 Pro 5G comes with a "AMOLED" 6.5-inch screen with curved side edges and relatively small, which is the touch that gives the phone its revolutionary appearance, and is fitted with a "Gorilla Glass 5" safety layer and an accurate 20: 9 aspect ratio of 1080 x 2400, equivalent to 402 pixels per inch. While the front camera is located separately in the upper left part of the screen as a hole.
Distinctive colour experience on the screen; it shows deep blacks and bright colours that are easy to see from many broad viewing angles and supports HDR10 +. The phone also has a very high brightness, the maximum screen brightness is 500 nits for normal operations, the maximum brightness rate is 800 nits, while the maximum brightness is 1100 nits, and this last number is for HDR software, while the other two numbers are dedicated to illumination the entire screen
The screen here is longer and thinner than what you'll find on most phones, which makes it a distinctive game screen and gives more vertical scrolling space for content, and it can be helpful, particularly when using split screen support applications. For example, this results in black bars on the sides of the screen while viewing videos on YouTube or content intended to be in an aspect ratio of 16: 9.
The edges are thin across the curved screen, which gives you a full screen viewing experience, and it comes with a refresh rate of 90 Hz, which is a distinctive addition that makes it easier to scroll and pass through the content on the phone when used in the user interface, but the refresh rate will revert to 60 Hz when you play visual content such as videos. The screen also has a fingerprint scanner that easily and reliably unlocks the phone and I have not experienced any problems with it, or the "face unlock" feature can be selected based on the front camera, which, even in reasonably low-light conditions, is also distinctive and easy to recognise the face.

Performance and battery

User interface and output
The Renault 4 Pro 5G comes with an eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chip inside, which is the latest middle-class SoC chip for fifth generation networks. It comes with an Adreno 620 graphics processor, 12 GB of 'RAM' random access memory, and 256 GB of internal space.

These capabilities are very adequate, with very smooth efficiency, without any suffering with multiple tasks or tension on the phone, and without feeling any kind of overheating with regular usage, in the normal daily use of the phone, from browsing the Internet, watching videos, and maybe some games like PUBG. Besides, the refresh rate of 90Hz provides a fast response to the
I understand that these numbers do not mean much, particularly when you do not compare them with phones from other companies, but the important thing is that these numbers are expected from the Snapdragon 765G chip we see in the Renault 4 Pro 5G phone, which is currently one of the middle class's most powerful chips, and also offers medium performance numbers.
The Android 10-based Color OS 7.2 user interface also offers a versatile user experience and a range of features, such as the artificial intelligence preloading app feature, which predicts and preloads the apps that the user launches at a given time. For fast selection and execution of applications, in addition to the functionality to easily monitor the applications with one hand on the main screen. Some useful shortcuts also come with the device, including assigning shortcuts when swiping up or down. You may also draw the letter 'O' on the screen to open the camera when it is closed, or draw the letter 'V' to open the flash. In relation to others
useful applications such as the OPPO Lab application and the OPPO Relax application.
Speaking of charging, it is one of the phone's most valuable features, because simply, even if you fail to charge it at night, for example, you will wake up in the morning and place it on the charge, and you will find that the battery has hit a 100 percent charge rate as soon as you prepare for the descent, and in a little over half an hour. At first, I thought these were just teaser terms that only appear in advertisements, but I discovered that this is really true when I tried SuperVOOC 2.0 fast charging technology with 65 watts.
I drained the phone's battery until it was completely shut off to test the truth of the matter, then placed it on the charger and the watch in my hands to determine the actual charging time, and the surprise was that the battery was fully charged in around 37 or 38 minutes. That's why the hassle of waiting to charge the battery or sitting next to the charger all day can be ignored. But it was intended to support wireless charging technology for phones in the upper middle class.

Final judgment and evaluation

The price of the new Oppo Reno 4 Pro 5G is approximately AED 2,500, and a mix between the 'flagship' flagship category and the middle class, or within the middle upper category, can be considered, targeting those who enjoy style, distinctive design and average element strength output and very good interior specifications.
You will find cheaper options when compared to phones with the same processor and the same performance, and when you compare them to the leading phones, you will find that, in addition to its lack of wireless charging, for example, the average segment does not have the same performance. But at the same time, 65-watt quick charging technology is enabled, which you do not find in many middle-class phones, along with distinctive camera features, photography, a "AMOLED" screen and 5G network support, so this phone deserves the title of a middle-class phone wearing a class suit. The lead, which makes him hypnotic.
