The 5G era is a good opportunity for video creators. Whether it is the content production process or the viewing format change, it will push the traditional content form to video. To this end, major mobile phone manufacturers have also made articles on video viewing/shooting. This time, OPPO released the latest Reno 4 series product, which focuses on improving the night scene video function, and the 65W super flash charging technology on the FindX2 series is decentralized, so that 5G mobile phones can also become video while improving the user experience. production tool. Before the release of the new product, Titanium Media also took the lead in getting Oppo Reno 4 Pro. Next, the author will show you if it can meet everyone’s expectations for the 5G era.
After entering the 5G era, the volume of some mobile phones suddenly “expanded”, and the weight has increased a lot. This is unacceptable to OPPO, so this has Reno 4 Pro.
In fact, as early as the Reno 3 series, OPPO has begun to significantly reduce the weight of the mobile phone, while also compressing the thickness of the mobile phone. With the latest Reno4 Pro, this advantage in weight and thickness has become more obvious.
Yes, the thickness of the Reno4 Pro phone is only 7.6mm. Compared with many 5G mobile phones today, this thickness obviously belongs to the first echelon! This makes the phone feel very comfortable, plus the bodyweight of 172g, even if you often hold the Reno4 Pro will not feel obvious discomfort.
For us, the biggest highlight of Reno4 Pro this time is the design of the back cover. Unlike the previous AG glass process, this time the new Reno Glow crystal drilling process is used to create a more shining visual style.
According to the official introduction of OPPO, this process is to form more than one million micron-level prism crystal pits on the surface of AG glass. So when the light shines up, the back of Reno4 Pro shines like innumerable stars.
This process is not only good-looking but with the support of AF anti-fingerprint film, the feel is still very comfortable, just the right feeling, let us put it down.
On the rear camera, Reno4 Pro still continues the style of the previous generation. The matrix design in the upper left corner is used. The three cameras are arranged vertically. The camera module base is made of acrylic material, which is perfect for the color of the phone. Transition, full of design!
Turned to the front, Reno4 Pro is equipped with a 6.55-inch FHD+ hyperbolic flexible OLED perforated screen, thanks to excellent black border control, and finally achieved an extremely high screen ratio of 93.4%, due to the opening of the front camera The hole is only 3.952mm, so the overall look and feel of the screen are excellent.
In order to enhance the visual experience, this screen also supports a high refresh rate of 90Hz, and also supports a high touch sampling rate of 180Hz, whether it is playing games or daily use, you can feel faster operation response.
In other data, Reno4 Pro’s screen performance is also very good. Passed the certification of HDR 10+, the effect of watching HDR video is more shocking; in terms of brightness, this screen maintains the high level that OPPO has always been, and the highest brightness reaches 500nit. The peak brightness can even reach 1100nit, so you don’t have to worry about seeing the phone screen in the sun in the future.
Reno 4 Pro Cameras
In recent years, the general trend of mobile phone image development has the following points:
1. The top head manufacturers do both addition and subtraction on the number of cameras to achieve full-focus shooting capability;
2. With the addition of custom sensors, excellent imaging power starts from the “core”.
3. Various manufacturers pay more and more attention to the weight of the algorithm in terms of image power. The top manufacturers are more important than hardware than software.
Under such a general trend, new features such as super night view photos, portrait background blurring, and real-time video background blurring give users an unprecedented new image experience, but the pinnacle of the 4G era-video, especially dark light, night scenes In terms of video, there are still no manufacturers to get involved. OPPO Reno 4 Pro, which focuses on 5G video phones, allows users to find that dynamic dark-light video and night scene video has a different charm.
Let me talk about the parameters first, OPPO Reno4 Pro made a subtraction of the image power, using an efficient and mature three-camera solution: 48-megapixel main camera + 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera + 13-megapixel telephoto camera, to satisfy everyone from far away All-round image demand from Guangda to Wei.
Of course, this super wide-angle camera can be described as promising, supporting a 120-degree super-large viewing angle, using Sony’s new IMX 708 sensor, 1/2.43-inch sensor size, can output 16:9 format video, let you create every time you create Has the taste of movies.
In terms of still photos, this time OPPO Reno 4 Pro can be said to be stable: the colors are suitable for shades, the contrast is moderate, the resolution is just right, and the real scenery is recorded on the photos more beautiful.
For the adjustment of this Sony IMX 586, OPPO is already familiar with it. It can be said that it has reached its peak on OPPO Reno4 Pro. The most significant improvement of this main camera is the improvement of photo resolution, whether it is a cat captured on the street. , Or trees and buildings, the default output of 12 Megapixels can also obtain very good picture resolution, zoom in to find details, the more interesting the more.
The quality adjustment of the main camera has been very good, and the performance of the ultra-wide-angle lens can surprise us even more.
Today, the proportion of ultra-wide-angle photos in user albums is getting higher and higher, and the requirements for ultra-wide-angle photos are also increasing: the angle of view must be large enough, the white balance between the main camera and the ultra-wide angle, and the difference in picture quality should be reduced as much as possible. For these requirements, OPPO can be said to meet one by one.
Through the upgrade of the lens module and the excellent sensor, OPPO Reno4 Pro’s ultra-wide-angle photos have excellent center and edge resolution; more obvious is the control of purple fringe, whether it is a high-gloss edge or a backlight scene, purple fringe is almost Can be ignored. The excellent ultra-wide-angle picture quality gives people a pleasing feeling.
As for the night scene photos, as the sensor continues to penetrate and the ultra-wide-angle sensor is updated, the night scene level naturally rises.
OPPO Reno 4 Pro is obviously not satisfied with the excellent static shooting ability, this night elf will further improve the dynamic shooting ability. The first is the highly acclaimed Super Video Stabilization Pro in the predecessor. The OPPO Reno4 Pro has been upgraded to the latest version-Video Super Stabilization 3.0.
“Video Super Image Stabilizer 3.0” actually includes “Video Super Image Stabilizer”, “Video Super Image Stabilizer Pro”, “Front Video Super Image Stabilizer” and other functions.
“Video Super Image Stabilization” is realized by the OIS+EIS dual image stabilization carried by the main camera, while “Video Super Image Stabilization Pro” relies on the IMX708’s ultra-wide-angle and 16:9 straight-out format to provide more space for image stabilization processing. You can make the picture more stable while shooting more content.
OPPO, which already has a lot of experience in the rear camera anti-shake, began to focus on the front camera anti-shake on the Reno4 Pro. After entering the era of universal video, the video recording effect of the front camera has been raised to an unprecedented height. In actual shooting, users rely more on mobile phone stabilizers. Although the effect is good, it is very cumbersome, and the appearance of “pre-video super anti-shake” makes the reason for buying a stabilizer one less.
It can be seen from the test samples that the front camera video anti-shake effect is very different before. And after opening, especially for the stability of the picture during walking, OPPO Reno4 Pro performs very well; when the front camera is fixed, It can also continue to superimpose the post-effects, and can at most use the blur, filter, and beauty.
In addition to expanding the image stabilization of the front camera and multiple effect overlays, OPPO Reno4 Pro locates 5G video phones and covers video functions from day tonight. The new moonlight night scene video algorithm extends the user’s horizon tonight scene video.
Here I have to cue the IMX708 on the Reno 4 Pro again. The Sony IMX708 is 1/2.43 inches in size. With a single-pixel area of 1.4μm, and also supports pixel four-in-one to 2.8μm, which has a stronger sensitivity. And can output 16:9 format video. In addition to the hardware, OPPO also created the “Moonlight Night View Video Algorithm”. Which can effectively increase the light intake by 74.4% in extremely dark environments (about 5lux). And at the same time increases the purity of the picture by 33.7% to achieve a brighter and more pure night view video.
After actual testing, OPPO Reno 4 Pro has significantly improved the brightness of the screen. And the details of The dark parts after turning on “Super Night Scene Video”, just like a professional lighting lamp. Which enhances the overall perception of the video screen. And under the action of the IMX708 lens, the video is framed The scope has also been improved.
More importantly, this brightness increase does not bring very serious color noise to the picture. Which is more in line with the user’s perception preferences.
In addition to expanding the front camera’s video anti-shake and multiple effect overlays. OPPO Reno 4 Pro launched the first self-developed HDR algorithm. Which uses different exposure strategies for different light ratio scenarios to achieve a wide dynamic range when shooting video. In backlighting, etc. In the high light ratio scene, Reno4 Pro can also clearly record details. Highlights, and shadows transition naturally.
As you can see from the real shots, the color grading style of the LiveHDR video is relatively bright. Which is more pleasing to users. More importantly, the details of its dark parts have been greatly improved compared to ordinary videos. As a result, OPPO Reno4 Pro has become an all-weather video shooting artifact.
Reno 4 Pro Battery
Similar to the rhythm of VOOC flash charge 4.0 last year, OPPO began to decentralize the 65W SuperVOOC. After Reno Ace, Find X2 series, and Ace2, OPPO Reno 4 series became the fourth member of the 65W SuperVOOC super flash charge family.
65W Super Flash Charger believes that many people will not be able to go back after use. For example, after getting up in the morning and plugging in the charger. From the time of washing, changing clothes to going out to work. OPPO Reno4 Pro equipped with 65W Super Flash Charger can charge 60% The electricity above. Like this kind of rush to go out but found that the phone’s battery is low. The existence of a 65W super flash charge can be said to be a “life-saving benefactor”.
Compared with the previous generation Reno3 Pro equipped with VOOC flash charge 4.0, Reno4 Pro with 65W super flash charge can be charged to more than 60% in 15 minutes and can be fully charged in 36 minutes. In this regard, we also conducted a comparative measurement.
As can be seen from this charging curve, OPPO’s 65W super flash charge is still the industry leader. The same 12% power starts to charge. Reno4 Pro takes only 30 minutes to charge to 100%. While other brands of 55W fast charge mobile phones It took 53 minutes to fill.
Reno 4 Pro Performance
OPPO Reno 4 Pro is still equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor that everyone is very familiar with. Here is a brief review of this processor.
The Snapdragon 765G is based on Samsung’s 7nm EUV process. It integrates the Snapdragon X52 5G baseband and supports NSA/SA. The peak download and upload rates of 5G can reach 3.7Gbps and 1.6 Gbps respectively.
The Snapdragon 765G adopts the “1+1+6” three-cluster design of 1*2.4GHz large core. 1*2.2GHz medium core + 6*1.8GHz small core. The CPU architecture is the same as the Snapdragon 855 Kyro 475. In other respects. Snapdragon 765G integrates Adreno 620 GPU, Spectra 355 ISP, and Hexagon 696 DSP.
The Geekbench 5.1 with OPPO Reno4 Pro equipped with the Snapdragon 765G scored 612 points for single-core and single-core. 1803 points for multi-core, and 344243 points for Antutu. The overall performance was good.
We chose “QQ Speed” for the test. The image quality option was adjusted to the highest. Finally, the average number of frames measured was 59.8 frames. And the performance was very stable and smooth.
The overall UI design of ColorOS 7.2 has not changed much from before. And it is still a familiar and elegant design style. Whether it is a native theme or an open third-party theme. It reflects OPPO’s “light and borderless” concept.
As can be seen from the version number. ColorOS 7.2 will not bring great changes in design or function. However, there are small surprises.
ColorOS 7.1 system part
In ColorOS 7.1 on OPPO Ace2, a new “OPPO Relax” is added, which can play comfortable sounds. Make us work more efficiently, and can also speed up sleep. Especially with the addition of Dolby Atmos, you can also simulate a near-real sound experience. It is recommended that interested users can try this application to enjoy the power of sound.
On ColorOS 7.2 on OPPO Reno4 Pro, the new “OPPO Lab” appeared. “OPPO Lab” is equivalent to a laboratory, it adds several fun new features, such as “Gravity Wallpaper”, “It is decided that you”, “Icon sink” and so on.
“Gravity wallpaper” is actually a desktop wallpaper that can follow the gravity direction of the user’s mobile phone to produce dynamic effects. When it’s okay, holding the mobile phone and turning around to appreciate the wallpaper seems to be quite decompressing.
“OPPO Lab” also has a built-in shortcut for “icon sinking”. “Icon sink” is actually a new one-handed gesture: on the desktop. Swipe up from the left or right side of the screen (triggering success rate is higher at the surface). Trigger the application icon to sink, and then continue to slide to the desired Let go of the opened application icon to open the application. This one-handed gesture is indeed ingenious, and it also takes advantage of the hyperboloid screen.
“It’s up to you to decide” is simply a turntable, and built a lot of themes. Such as “what to eat out”, “how to forgive boyfriend”, etc. And then get the answer through the turntable. This little application is undoubtedly helping those who have difficulty in choosing.
In terms of network speed, we use mainstream Speedtest software for testing. What needs to be mentioned is that we got the engineering machine when evaluating OPPO Reno4 Pro. In addition, the system version is also different from the officially listed models. So The final measured 5G network speed may be inconsistent with the actual measurement results you buy.
It can be seen that in our test environment. OPPO Reno4 Pro’s 5G network download rate is 10.9 times that of the 4G network. And the upload speed is 1.9 times the latter.
In such a 5G network environment, the download application can achieve the effect of reading the progress bar immediately after clicking. And there is basically no loading time when the web page is opened. Click to open the page. Pull the progress bar of 1080P online video at will, you can hardly see any buffering in the 5G network environment, and the buffering is basically completed in an instant.
Where To Buy
OPPO is not necessarily a trend-leading manufacturer. But it must be a manufacturer that stands at the forefront of the trend. While each family was still “fighting” for photos, OPPO released Reno2, the main video stabilization video phone; while each family was still rushing to launch a heavy and thick 5G mobile phone, OPPO launched a 171g thin and light 5G video Mobile phone Reno3 Pro.
Now, OPPO has brought Reno 4 Pro with a thin and light body, a new crystal drilling process. Video super image stabilization 3.0, super night scene video, 65W super flash charge, etc. Which once again lets users praise it. With such a video artifact that covers the needs of all-weather video shooting. Xiaobai can also become a video expert in the 5G era.
