OPPO have set themselves apart from the competition with the new Reno6 Z.


With so many smartphones on the market, selecting a new device can be challenging and even a tad stressful. These mobile devices don’t come cheap, so making a well-informed choice is important to avoid any regrets later on.

This month, FACT magazine got the opportunity to test the new OPPO Reno6 Z 5G, a device we feel is well-worth your consideration. OPPO have opted to keep the lightweight and thin structure that has worked so well for previous models. Both the Aurora and Steller Black versions incorporate the unique Reno Glow Design, ensuring the Reno6 Z exudes a superior style that many other smartphone manufacturers will be eying jealously. Inspired by the northern lights, the phone’s back cover creates a subtle shimmering effect, adding to the class and elegance of these phones.

What really makes the OPPO Reno6 Z special and raises it above the competition is its camera setup. This device is basically a portable studio, offering a multitude of options to take photographs and videos to the next level. With a 64MP triple-camera setup and OPPO’s ultimate AI algorithm, we were able to capture stunning, crystal clear images and videos. In brief, it uses AI algorithms to pinpoint real light sources in the background and to create bokeh light spots at varying depths, thereby imitating professional cameras.

It also uses natural beautification effects, removing skin imperfections on the face whilst preserving natural features. It can also match the skin tone of your face with your neck and brighten your eyes. With superior focus tracking, dual-view video and Flash Snapshot that enables the phone to instantly focus, you won’t find any dull or blurry pics in your gallery.

Once you’ve captured the desired moments, you can apply some post-production magic through the AI Palette. This allows you to copy the style of an image you have found online with just one click. Deep learning algorithms are used to study the colour distribution of the target image style, which is then applied adaptively to the original image, whilst maintaining the quality and texture of the original image. Truly impressive stuff!

The designers of the OPPO Reno6 Z 5G didn’t forget about the gamers out there. We found gaming on this device to be super smooth and without any lagging. The reason being, despite its size, this device is equipped with 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage as well as innovative RAM Expansion technology. Combine this with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 and an SGS Eye Care Display and you have one incredible gaming experience. All-in-all, the OPPO Reno6 Z 5G is a beautifully designed, technologically superior device that should be considered by anyone searching for a new smartphone. ✤
