Oppo Reno 3 Pro First Impressions
Oppo Reno Pro Pro is a good looking device and has not ditched 3.3 mm audio jack. It feels comfortable to hold and one can easily operate it using a single hand.
The 6.5-inch display looks great but the only issue one might face is readability in bright sunlight. The curved is quite well calibrate and one will not encounter any accidental touches on the edges. The punch hole design doesn’t look bad or hamper viewing experience.
Oppo Reno 4 Pro runs on ColorOS 7 based on Android 10 out of the box. In my brief usage, the UI felt smooth and snappy. As this a custom skin based on Android, the company has added a couple of cool features like Game Space. Having said that the Reno 4Pro has lot pre-loaded apps and some of the apps like TikTok and Helo are banned by the Indian government. Thankfully one can delete them all, except, Netflix App which cannot be deleted.
I am of the opinion that brands should avoid loading apps on at least those smartphone which cost more than Rs 15,000 because a customer who is spending that much amount on a smartphone will we quite aware about how to download the apps he or she requires. Also, a disclaimer about the apps which are preloaded on a smartphone because of a marketing tie-up between the smartphone brand and the app company may be a step in the right direction.
In our short usage, we didn’t face any issue with the regular operation of the smartphone. Scrolling, opening apps and navigation was a smooth affair.
In the camera department the shots came out well but I think the phone requires an update pretty soon because I felt continuity was missing in pictures in terms of detailing and colour reproduction, some shots came out really well while others were worth detailing especially the shots in low light. The camera UI is neat and clean and users might love the simplicity.
At a price tag of Rs 34,990, the Oppo Reno 4 Pro is a good looking device and comfortable to use. The preloaded app could have been avoided and the camera needs an update. Stay tuned for our full review where we will talk about the performance of the device.
