OPPO Reno 3 Pro 5G phone hands-on review: ultra slim design and excellent camera performance

By  Goraud Mazanec 2019-12-27 3675 0

2019 is known as the "first year of China's 5G" by many people in the industry. When all manufacturers are laying out 5G one after another, OPPO is very calm. When everyone thought that OPPO might not release 5G products within this year, OPPO surprised us in Hangzhou on December 26th by handing over the first dual-mode 5G mobile phone - OPPO Reno 3 Pro. As the year-end finale of OPPO, can Reno 3 Pro draw a successful conclusion to 2019? Let's show you our using experience about it.

Ultra slim and lightweight design

Other compliments aside, let me first talk about the feeling of being used for the first time, that is, the word "frivolous". Do not know why, this year, many manufacturers in the body weight control is not good, looking at, more than 200g mobile phones can be found everywhere. In the past, I was still complaining about Sony's "asking for half a jin", but now half a kilo is standard for 5G mobile phones.

When you first use OPPO Reno 3 Pro, you will be really shocked by the thin fuselage, which is measured to be only 7.7mm thick and weighs 171g, which is a phone with dual-mode 5G+4025mAh battery and 6.5inch screen.

In terms of appearance, OPPO Reno 3 Pro also brings four trendy colors: foggy white moon, dark moon, blue starry night and the sunrise impression we got this time. Sunrise impression is the first color matching used by OPPO, showing a gradual change from light blue to dawn purple from top to bottom, with the gradual transition of the middle frame, there is a sense of immediate sunrise by the sea. In fact, I personally still like this color matching, but also can see that OPPO for color control is still very in place.

The front of the Reno 3 Pro is a 6.5-inch OLED hyperboloid punching screen. It is worth noting that in order not to affect the visual experience and ensure the integrity of the screen, Reno 3 Pro's screen opening diameter is only 3.92mm, and the screen refresh rate has been increased to 90Hz, which can be adjusted by itself in the setting. Of course, I still like to keep 90Hz open all the time. After all, it's hard to get back to 60Hz if I'm used to a high refresh rate.

In addition, the full-screen maximum brightness of the screen is increased to 800N, the ultimate peak brightness is 1100nit, and the contrast ratio is up to 5 million: 1. As far as I am concerned, this screen is quite good and belongs to the first-class standard of the current flagship machine.

Quad-camera with professional grade 5x hybrid optical zoom

For a long time, OPPO has a great advantage in imaging. As early as in MWC 2019, OPPO made its debut with 10x hybrid optical zoom technology, which is enough to show that OPPO has never stopped ploughing in the image.

This time the OPPO Reno 3 Pro uses a 48 million-pixel main camera + 8 million-pixel ultra-wide angle + 13 million-pixel telephoto + 2 million-pixel black-and-white film style four-pixel full-focus image system, while the front uses a 32 million-pixel camera.

At the same time, Reno 3 Pro also has a video super anti-shake Pro mode, by clipping and stabilizing the images captured by the ultra-wide-angle camera, Reno 3 Pro's ultra-wide-angle lens can shoot a wider range of images, so the clipping range for anti-shake and stabilization will become larger.


Next, we might as well take a look at a set of sample photos to take a look at the lens performance of OPPO Reno 3 Pro.

We can find that OPPO Reno 3 Pro in the case of sufficient light during the day, through the blessing of the AI algorithm, the color of the picture will be more pleasing to the eyeball, and the restoration of white balance is also very accurate. Especially when filming the Drum Tower, it was dusk at that time, and Reno 3Pro also photographed the Drum Tower in the setting sun with a retro feeling.

When it comes to the night scene, the sample shot by Reno 3 Pro has not been exposed, especially in the more complex lighting environment, the details of the light and shade are also relatively accurate, and there is no obvious noise.

Dual mode 5G with guaranteed performance

The OPPO Reno 3 Pro carries the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chip. Snapdragon 765 mobile platform is the highest positioning platform of Snapdragon 7 series, and it is also the largest upgrade of Snapdragon 7 series so far.

At the same time, Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G is Qualcomm's first 5G integrated SoC, that integrates Qualcomm's second generation 5G baseband Snapdragon X52 and supporting RF systems. The peak download and upload rates at 5G can reach 3.7Gbps and 1.6 Gbps respectively (Snapdragon 865 + Snapdragon X55 downloads the fastest 7.5Gbps). Snapdragon 765G also implements NSA/SA dual-mode 5G network.


In terms of performance, Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G integrates eight-core Kryo 475 CPU, Adobe 620 GPU, Spectra 355 ISP, Hexagon 696 DSP, sensor center and other modules. Kryo475 has the same architecture as Snapdragon 855, using a new eight-core Kryo475 processor and a three-cluster architecture. Configure one 2.4GHz super core, one 2.2GHz performance core, and six 1.8GHz efficiency cores.

In addition, Adreno 620, thanks to the same architecture as the new flagship Snapdragon 865, the Snapdragon 765G improves graphics performance by nearly 40% compared to Snapdragon 730. In the running score software, the scores of an rabbit, multi-core and single core of GeekBench4 were 280631, 7805 and 2881 respectively.


In terms of performance-eating games, "Honor of Kings" supports the highest resolution and the highest picture quality, and ensures that 60 frames run with little problem after testing, and there is basically no excessive frame drop. Therefore, it can be concluded that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G is expected to be the mainstream mid-range SoC that will be adopted by most models in the first half of next year.

The OPPO Reno 3 Pro is stuffed with a 4025mAh battery only the thickness of 7.7mm, and is equipped with VOOC 4.0 flash charge technology, which ensures battery life while ensuring full blood resurrection within an hour.

The latest ColorOS 7 is the icing on the cake

Not long ago, OPPO officially released the ColorOS 7 operating system, which focuses on "brisk borderless". In the Android camp, there are not a few systems that focus on "brisk", but there are only a few that can be fully deconstructed, interactive logic and aesthetics based on the underlying technology of the system.


ColorOS 7 operating system​ 


This time ColorOS 7 officially takes the above three standards as the concept, and creates a kind of interactive comfort through a lightweight design. ColorOS 7 reduces the saturation of the interface of the whole system, and at the same time, on the basis of continuing the "white space" design in ColorOS 6, ColorOS 7 further expands the white space area, and the enhanced sense of space helps users focus on the core content and ease anxiety. The shape of the system icon is also further simplified and abstracted, using simple design to bring users a lighter visual perception.


In addition, the newly added three-finger area screenshot, all-weather dark mode, and flashback function all add to ColorOS 7's icing on the cake. If you want to learn more about ColorOS 7, please move to our recently released ColorOS 7 Review: brisk borderless experience is purely efficient and convenient.

Conclusion

For OPPO, OPPO Reno 3 Pro is definitely a landmark product, and as OPPO's first dual-mode 5G mobile phone, Reno 3 Pro will also be the prelude to the 5G ecology of OPPO layout in 2020.


Of course, back to the product itself, OPPO Reno 3 Pro's Snapdragon 765G processor, 4025mAh battery and excellent photo experience have given it a place in the domestic mobile phone market that has become a red sea. At the same time, as a product with a price of only 3999 yuan (about $572), OPPO Reno 3 Pro is definitely a good choice to buy a machine at the end of the year.
