Oppo’s expansion into our market (and opposition to established leaders such as Xiaomi and Huawei) gave us very favorable prices for interesting smartphones. Including pre-flagships like Oppo Reno3, with a good set of features.
Packaging: Oppo Reno3
The smartphone comes with a charger, USB Type-C cable, a wired headset with a 3.5 mm connector, and a case. Fortunately, transparent, so as not to detract from the beauty of the case. And he is really very handsome here.
Oppo Reno3: Appearance
Oppo Reno3 in our color, Auroral Blue (there is also Midnight Black and Sky White), has an expressive blue-turquoise, even a slightly lilac gradient on the back cover, with a neon-blue stripe in the middle that is visible only from a certain angle.
The case is in glass on the front and back, connected by a plastic side edge, which is quite skillfully disguised as metal, making the smartphone even more premium both in hand and by eye.
The arrangement of elements in the Oppo Reno3
In front, there is a screen with a teardrop notch for the front camera and an under-screen fingerprint scanner – which, although inferior to traditional counterparts, is generally quite nimble. Interestingly, the predecessor – Oppo Reno2 – had a sliding front camera. But this feature was abandoned, presumably in favor of reliability. Well, this probably influenced the price downward. It’s a pity the fin camera was lovely. On the left side, there are power and volume buttons and a slot for SIM cards.
Below is the speaker grill, USB Type-C, and mini-jack.
Behind, in addition to the gradient, we see a protruding camera unit, a flash, and the manufacturer’s logo. Everything is classic.
The Oppo Reno3 body’s dimensions are 158.8 x 73.4 x 8.1 mm, the weight is 175 g. There is no special coating on the back, but the smartphone feels confident in the hands and does not even plan to slide, so it does not need to be found.
Oppo Reno3: Display
The smartphone is equipped with a 6.4-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2400 by 1080 pixels, with a density of 410 pixels per inch, and an aspect ratio of 20: 9. Everything from viewing angles to brightness with contrast is of the highest order.
Plus, if you’re not happy with the base colder color temperature, you can easily adjust it in the display options. And flicker noticeable at minimum brightness is removed by the option “minimum brightness without flicker,” which is great for eye health.
Performance Oppo Reno3
The 12-nanometer system-on-chip MediaTek MT6779 Helio P90, with eight cores, two Cortex-A75 with a frequency of up to 2.2 GHz, and six Cortex-A55, with a frequency of up to 2 GHz, is responsible for the power of the smartphone. The video core is PowerVR GM 9446 with a frequency of 970 MHz.
There is no variety of available memory options – 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of UFS 2.1 format ROM. But there is a slot for microSD up to 256 GB, and at the same time, it is not combined with SIM-cards. That is, you can install two SIM cards and another microSD card.
In terms of performance, we have a solid competitor to Qualcomm Snapdragon, model 710. 202,000 points in AnTuTu will not surprise anyone in 2020, and you don’t really need to – in games, the smartphone shows itself with dignity, and in work, it is responsive and fast. Fortunately, the SoC includes acceleration by artificial intelligence.
