Priced at Rs 39,999, the Oppo Reno 7 Pro comes in a single variant of 12GB RAM, which can be expanded up to 7GB and 256GB of storage. Compared to its predecessor Reno 6 Pro, which was launched around 6 months back, Reno 7 Pro may not see many changes except design and a few other features. Along with this, the entire power to buy the phone is in your hands. And to help you out, I have used Oppo Reno 7 pro for about 2 weeks and seen it here. Read this to decide!

Design

In the year 2022, smartphone brands are launching phones with a shiny, shiny back panel that can change colour depending on the light, especially blue. And Oppo hasn’t disappointed us with its new Reno 7 series. The phone is available in two colour options – Starlight Black and Starlight Blue. I found the phone packaged in a box with a transparent plastic back cover, charger and sim card ejector.

Slightly inspired by Apple’s iPhone design, the Reno 7 Pro comes with a boxy look. The phone has a shimmery back panel with a matte finish. It also has a large rectangular camera hump divided into two parts. The hump is surrounded by a breathing light (light bar), which glows when you make a call, receive a message, or even charge the phone. Although the back panel is smudge resistant, the lower part of the camera hump attracts it.

Despite having an aluminium frame, the phone is slim (7.45 mm) and lightweight (180 grams), which makes it comfortable to hold and carry. Coming to the front, the phone sports a fingerprint sensor and a front camera at the corner with very narrow bezels and a 6.5-inch display.

However, the Oppo Reno 7 pro does not support the headphone jack, which could be a drawback for those who like and prefer wired earphones.

Display

The phone comes with a 6.5-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. The display offers commendable colours, assessment and brightness. The brightness of the phone can be adjusted manually to give rest to the eyes. However, I kept the auto switch on for the same and it worked well enough. However, the screen is quick to respond with a 90Hz refresh rate. But on this price range, Oppo ought to have given a better refresh rate.

Performance

The Oppo Reno 7 pro runs on MediaTek Dimensity 1200-Max and boots ColorOS 11 on top of Android 12. The first component that dissatisfied me become the bloatware. There were some pre-installed apps on the phone, which are not of much use. However, the exceptional component is that those apps may be uninstalled. Also, during the review period, I was not bothered by any ads or unnecessary notifications other than the apps I was using.

The Oppo Reno 7 series offers the Emoji feature, which is similar to the Emoji avatar introduced by Apple. Emoji (a digital avatar of yourself, or one of the ones that already exist) can also be personalised to be used as a display for the lock screen. And trust me these look cute! The Reno 7 Pro additionally helps numerous exciting functions concentrated on distinctive age corporations of users. Like Kid Space for children and Simple Mode for the elderly.

The phone’s performance is satisfactory in terms of performing routine activities like watching videos on YouTube, Disney+ Hotstar, scrolling through social media apps like Instagram, Facebook. Even long gaming sessions on the phone gave me a good experience. During the usage of the phone, I did not notice any slowdown or heat.

Talking about the audio quality, it is quite decent and loud. Talking about connectivity, of course, 5G connectivity cannot be checked till the service is available in India! With 4G connectivity, the calling experience including video calls has been satisfactory.

Camera

Oppo is known for providing good camera features. And this time the company has claimed the phone to be a portrait expert. But did the declaration emerge as true? I would say yes.

The phone packs a triple rear camera setup with a 50MP main camera (Sony IMX 766 sensor) along with an 8MP ultra-wide-angle and a 2MP macro camera. The camera hump also helps with a flashlight and color temperature sensor. The front camera supports a 32 MP selfie camera (Sony IMX 709 sensor).

Images clicked in daylight with the 50MP lens have great clarity and capture even minute details with great dynamic range. The colours look vibrant and most importantly real, it’s almost like what we see!

I didn’t as pictures with the wide-angle lens, though it did leave the image quite dull. Talking about the microlens, it did a great job in capturing the subtle details with clarity. I liked the picture quality of the pictures clicked in Night Mode. It became noise-free, sharp and the colours were regarded as excellent too.

I was amazed by the bokeh effect offered by the phone. When shooting video or capturing images, the impact was on point. Although I struggled to maintain the distance needed to achieve the desired effect, once achieved, it felt worth the effort. The front camera also gave good clicks. However, the automatic beautification filter is turned on by default and you have to turn it off to avoid the beauty effects.

I was surprised to see the stabilisation and clarity provided when recording fast-moving videos, despite Oppo not implementing optical stabilisation. Apart from these, the phone additionally offers options to click images in HD Mode, Panorama, Expert, Slow Motion, Time-lapse, Dual-view video, etc.

Battery

With a 4500mAh battery, the phone can last for about 1.5 days on a single charge. In terms of my daily usage, which includes playing games, surfing the internet, watching videos or movies, attending calls, making video calls, using social networking applications, the Reno 7 Pro offered a decent battery backup.

Whereas with frequent use on weekends, the battery lasts for almost a day on a single charge. Charging is fast as the phone comes with a 65W fast charger. During the review, it took about 30-35 minutes to fill the phone’s battery from 0 to 100 percent.
