OPPO have released the latest Reno smartphone to rave reviews.

This month, the FACT team set its sights on the brand-new Reno7 Pro 5G, the latest generation smartphone in OPPO’s Reno Series.

Exterior Design
The Reno7 Pro 5G has inherited a lightweight and ultra-slim design from its Reno predecessors. At only 7.45mm thick and weighing in at about 180grams, we forgot we were holding it at times. Nonetheless, the device is a high-quality piece that feels solid in its makeup.
This eye-catching smartphone owes its striking appearance to the OPPO Glow process applied to the device’s exterior, along with the industry-first application of Laser Direct Imaging (LDI) technology. The result is two sparkling colour options, namely Startrails Blue and Starlight Black.
And 2.5D glass has been applied to both sides of the phone, providing a superior touch experience. This proved less prone to mistouch than curved screens. OPPO’s first use of coated ceramic trimmings and another industry-first, the Orbit Breathing Light, have helped to ensure a unique and premium exterior design.

Hardware & Performance
The model showcases a 6.5-inch, 2400 x 1080px AMOLED display. It has a maximum refresh rate of 90Hz and a touch-sampling rate of 180Hz.
Overall, we were highly impressed by MediaTech’s Diversity 1200-MAX octa-core processor. It boasts best-in-class AI, camera and multimedia technology.
Designed to be the most power efficient and feature-filled 5G-integrated modem to date, it offers one of the fastest smartphone CPUs ever created. It provides power saving enhancements, faster average speeds and the first true dual 5G experience.
This potent processor is combined with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The result is a silky-smooth experience, even with several apps running simultaneously.
Additionally, high-quality audio, an X-Axis Linear Motor, Ultra Touch Response and the AI Frame Rate Stabiliser, provide an immersive gaming experience. In truth, we had to tear ourselves away to complete our full review.

The Reno7 Pro 5G is amongst the first OPPO smartphones to be installed with ColorOS 12 as standard. This software significantly improves both productivity and privacy. It also allows you to customise wallpapers, icons, the fingerprint scanner animation, the Always on Display and more.

Marketed as a camera phone, the OPPO Reno7 Pro 5G features an impressive triple camera set-up at the back, including a 50-megapixel primary camera, an eight-megapixel ultra-wideangle lens and a two-megapixel macro sensor. There is also a 32-megapixel selfie camera located at the front.
Portrait mode is available on both the front and back cameras, offering superior edge detection and a solid bokeh effect. No matter the time of day or night, we captured pictures and videos that were both vivid and crystal clear.
The helpful camera app offers a range of modes and features, including various beauty filters and retouching options.

Battery Life
A special mention must go to the 4500mAH battery of the Reno7 Pro 5G. It takes a mere 31 minutes to fully charge, with as little as five minutes of charge, providing enough power for us to enjoy four hours of continuous movie playback.
Finally, this smartphone refused to heat up, no matter how intensely we used it.

The Reno7 Pro 5G has surpassed previous generations in all areas of appearance and performance and now offers a truly unique, responsive and rewarding experience. ✤
