OPPO Reno 7 Review : Is this mid-range worth it? | Tech Reviews

The Chinese company OPPO recently presented in South America its Reno 7 a cell phone that seeks to compete in the mid-range with unique characteristics in this hard-fought segment. This was our experience.

OPPO Reno7 Design: It looks premium

Matte plastic body

OPPO brings to the table a quite attractive design in the Reno 7 with a matte iridescent plastic cover that frees us from fingerprint marks.

The camera module stands out with a ring that lights up when we load it or use a function that we will talk about later. It could really pass for a high-end cell phone if we only talk about the appearance.

We are talking about a really light team with measurements that are in the middle.

OPPO Reno7 screen: just right for the mid-range

6.43″ amoled screen at 2,400 x 1,080 resolution

90Hz refresh rate

430 nits normal brightness and 600 nits intense brightness

The 6.43” AMOLED screen of the OPPO Reno7 We had a good experience with a refresh rate of 90Hz. A nice improvement if you’re coming from a 60Hz phone, something that was common in the mid-range a couple of years ago.

The maximum brightness of 600 nits is not ideal when we are in the sun, but it is useful for viewing content, although the sound could have more punch to complement the experience.

OPPO Reno7 performance: the low point

Snapdragon 860

Graphics Adreno 610

6GB of RAM (+5GB with RAM upgrade) and 128GB of UFS 2.2 storage

Supports storage expansion with microSD

Dual-SIM

Perhaps a low point in this mid-range cell phone. The Snapdragon 680 of this OPPO Reno7 It is not the fastest in the mid-range, in addition to not including 5G connectivity.

The Snapdragon 680 does not give us a performance up to what OPPO offers in terms of other details.

The 5G we can leave it aside because its implementation in Peru is still in its infancy, but the Snapdragon 680 It slows down the experience at times, regardless of whether the cell phone has the option to add an extra 5GB of RAM “borrowed” from the storage.

OPPO Reno7 cameras: ideal for capturing small details (really)

Rear module: 64 MP (main), Microscopic (2MP) and monochrome (2MP)

32MP front camera

Video up to 1080P (30fps) on both cameras and slow motion at 720P (120fps) on the rear camera

Something strange happened to me OPPO Reno7. Some photos look much better when I export them on the computer.

The camera array led by the Sony IMX709 main sensor is good, but it doesn’t stand out in any way… unless we use the ace up the sleeve of the OPPO Reno7.

This is the microscopic camera, a unique feature in the mid-range (at least among the models that officially arrive in Peru). With this you can take photos and videos with up to 30X magnification, although the best image quality is at 15X.

This element of OPPO Reno7 It can be very useful for some people with hobbies that involve miniatures or looking at specific details such as numismatics or philately.

OPPO Reno7 battery: average

The OPPO Reno7 It gives us 4,500 mAh of battery, enough to achieve a day and a half away from the plug.

The load is the 33W SUPERVOOC, also on average. Of course, we have seen how other brands such as Xiaomi carry up to 120W to the mid-range.

Still, 33W of load is not little. OPPO It includes the charger and cable in the box, so the user will not have to face that extra expense to get the most out of fast charging.

OPPO Reno7 extras: good details

Color OS 12.1 with Android 12

3.5mm headphone jack

FM radio (with headphones as antenna)

Bluetooth 5.1

USB-C input

Color OS is a layer of Android customization that I really liked, including the ability to enable gestures on the screen with the device locked.

Also, we have a headphone port on the OPPO Reno7which also gives us FM Radio, a valuable feature.

Point in favor: we have FM Radio and port for headphones.
Point in favor: we have FM Radio and port for headphones. What if. It’s 2022 and this is getting weirder and weirder. 

At the launch of OPPO Reno7 We were also able to learn that the brand will provide a two-year warranty, something that is also liked.

Is the OPPO Reno7 worth it?

we find in the OPPO Reno7 a mid-range cell phone that stands out for bringing unique features to the table and can find a great niche among hobbyists, as I elaborated before.

The launch price in operators, averaging S/ 1,650, discourages me a bit from recommending it, mainly because of the Snapdragon 680. This processor can be found in cheaper options within the mid-range and even in the almost entry-level range. Xiaomi Redmi 10C.

But if you want a radio, a microscopic camera, a pretty neat design, or you’re a fan of Maluma, this device is for you. Yes, I would expect a good offer.
