Hey Techy_cians, In recent times, I received many requests to do a review of OPPO Reno 2.
So without further ado let’s begin with the review of OPPO Reno 2, a mid-segment smartphone from the house OPPO.
The Reno 2 is an upper mid-range smartphone with a catchy design and standout camera’s. What’s exciting to play with is the smartphone’s signature shark fin pop-up selfie camera.
The smartphone is built from an aluminum frame and comes protected by Gorilla Glass.
If you seem to buy this phone I will personally recommend you to go for the Luminous black color. One of the coolest highlights on the back of the phone is its vertical OPPO logo which is outlined by a neon glow.
The glow can make you think twice as it looks like a LED light flashing through the smartphone’s surface. The phone feels quite sturdy and comes with a synthetic protective case.
Reno 2 features a 6.5 inches AMOLED capacitive touchscreen and boasts a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. The display is protected by Gorilla Glass 6, so you are safe there.
One thing that makes the display seem larger is it’s tiny bezel since the selfie cam comes as hidden inside the display.
The screen looks nice and the content looks sharp at 401 PPI. The colors are punchy, though not accurate.
The camera is a major selling point for Reno 2, On the rear, you get a quad-camera setup a 48-megapixel primary camera, a 13-megapixel telephoto camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera which has auto-focus and a 2-megapixel monochrome sensor for portrait modes.
Photo’s taken with the main camera are excellent, and comes out in 12-megapixel as default. There is plenty of detail and the picture comes with good contrasts and wide dynamic range.
The pop-up 16-megapixel selfie module is pretty satisfying to use and is fast enough to use for facial recognition. Hopefully, it’s moving parts don’t lead to breakage later down the line.
The selfie cam has a fixed focus and does a great job. There is plenty of details and good sharpness throughout the frame
One of the upgrades in the Reno 2 from its predecessors is its chipset. Reno 2 comes with a Snapdragon 730G chipset bundled with an 8 GB RAM.
The chipset is similar to Snapdragon 730 but packs a little more punch thanks to higher clock speed and the new A.I engine.
I didn’t notice any lag while playing big games. If you have bought the Reno 2, Do tell me in the comment section below, what do you think about the same?
Along with an 8 GB RAM you get a 256GB Storage that can be expandable via hybrid slim slot.
The A.I optimizations of the chipset has improved the battery life too. With its 4000 mAh battery, you can expect a standby time of 255 hours.
Charging won’t be much of a stress as the device also supports 20W VOOC Flash charging. The charging is not insanely fast but is pretty decent as you can go from 0 to 40% o charging in 40 minutes.
