Key Features of the Oppo Reno 7 5G
The Oppo Reno 7 5G isn't much of an improvement over the previous generation in terms of features or specifications. A headphone jack, expandable storage, and a slightly bigger battery are just a few of the minor changes.
The phone's back panel is made of plastic and features a laser-etched gradient finish. Unlike the Reno 6 5G, which featured a metal frame, this one has a glossy plastic frame. In general, the phone is easy to carry around. No ingress protection is included, even though there are competitors who do so for a lower price point.
The phone's display is similar to last year's Reno 6 5G, which had a 6.43-inch AMOLED with a 1080p resolution, Gorilla Glass 5 protection, and a refresh rate of 90 hertz. Swiping and scrolling are smoother because of the fast refresh rate. The refresh rate drops to 60 hertz to conserve battery life when you're not using it.
The screen hasn't changed much since last year, besides the addition of HDR10+. The visual quality is excellent, with rich, dark AMOLED blacks and fine detail. Colours can be pretty accurate if you play around with the settings, and you'll get 450 nits of max brightness with the manual brightness slider. The auto mode can boost this to 630 nits when out in the sun.
There's also a fingerprint reader beneath the display for unlocking, and the authentication is quick and accurate. This time, Oppo has re-introduced the headphone jack, which is a nice touch. While the sound quality isn't much better than last year, the higher frequencies and vocals sound a bit more distinct.
The Reno 7 5G's extendable storage is another feature. The phone comes with 256 GB of storage and uses Oppo's ColorOS 12, which is based on Android 11. You'll be familiar with the interface if you've used an Oppo or Realme phone before.
ColorOS's icon pull-down is a helpful feature if you like to operate your phone with one hand. All of your icons will be within reach with just a single swipe.
The MediaTek Demensity 900 5G chipset powers all of these functions, just like last year's model. Benchmarks show that the Reno 7 5G is better than popular mid-range competitors like the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G. This is more than enough to give users a smooth experience, even when playing games.
On top of that, the phone has a great thermal management system and an advanced passive cooling system. The phone did not overheat, and its performance remained consistent.
The Reno 7 5G's battery capacity is 4,500 mAh, which is an increase over last year's model and appears to have been better optimised. You'll be able to charge your phone at 65 watts just like before.
The cameras are next. All three cameras are the same as those found in the previous year's model and many recent mid-ranges. The main camera's 16-megapixel images are excellent for the class. The photos have lots of details, low noise, colours that are true to life, and an exceptional dynamic range.
When it comes to mid-range phones, the 8-megapixel images from the ultrawide camera are among the best; they have enough detail, nice colours, and a wide dynamic range.
The images from the camera's 2-megapixel sensor have a good amount of detail and vibrant colours. The main camera's photos, even in low light, are impressively good. Colours are rich and saturated, and the picture has a wide dynamic range with plenty of fine details and little noise.
The 32-megapixel front-facing camera takes selfies with a wide dynamic range and precise colours. The main camera can record video in up to 4K resolution at 30 frames per second, and the results are stunning. The main camera does a great job in terms of clarity, sharpness, colour accuracy, and noise level.
This camera has electronic stabilisation, but only if you shoot in 1080p. The colours are a little washed out, but the sharpness, minimal noise, and superb dynamic range make up for it. The ultrawide has a maximum resolution of 1080p.
So, there you have it: the Oppo Reno 7 5G, also known as the Oppo Find X5 Lite. It has almost the same features as the model from a year ago, but it has some improvements, like longer battery life and HDR10+. It also has a headphone jack and storage that can be expanded.
