The Renos are Oppo’s flagships. It shouldn’t surprise you that the Reno 3 is not cheap. You’ll be able to pick it up for around Rs.70,000 island-wide. Considering its price and features, I think it’s well worth it.
The handset was released in 2020. It looks and feels like most phones released these days. For starters, it’s large. Its screen stretches 6.4 inches across. If you have smaller hands, holding it might be tough.
It is also pretty thin. The following are its dimensions: 160.2 mm x 73.3 mm x 7.9 mm.
You’re looking at a heavy phone. I personally am a fan of devices with heft – they feel more luxurious. The Reno weighs 170 grams.
The mobile rocks a premium build as well. It was made from Gorilla Glass and aluminum. Take a look at its sides – they were curved well. Your palms won’t feel sore when you hold it for a while.
The Reno 3 will turn heads – there is a super smooth gradient on its rear. You can pick it up in three colour options: Midnight Black, Aurora Blue, and Sky White.
From the three, I think the Aurora Blue option is the most attractive.
If you’re expecting expandable storage, you won’t be disappointed. The mobile comes with a 3.5 mm headphone jack as well. Even though it lets you expand its storage, the ROM it comes with is still a lot. You’d feel spoilt.
Oppo placed an AMOLED panel on its front. The colours would be very vibrant. As its screen is so big, immersing in whatever you’re watching would be a piece of cake.
There’s barely any bezel action going on. The phone has an 84.2% screen-to-body ratio. Its display is sharp too. How do you feel about a 1080 x 2400-pixel screen?
Let’s talk about its processor. You’ll be met with the Helio P90 which is pretty beastly. The fact that the device comes with a lot of RAM makes using it even faster. You can pick it up with 8 gigs of memory. ROM-wise, 128 GB would be available. If you remember, expanding its storage is something that you can do.
Out of the box, it runs Android 10. It would be available through ColorOS – Oppo’s proprietary UI. It’s super customizable and comes with a lot of themes. Yes, you can upgrade its systems to Android 11. This is great, as Android 11 has a plethora of new security features.
As the handset is so thin, you wouldn’t expect a large battery. There is a decent sized 4,025 mAh unit inside. Expect the flagship to last over a day. No surprise, it’s non removable.
You will be charging it with a 30 W fast charger. The Reno goes from 0-100% in little over an hour.
Since it’s so expensive, you might be expecting reverse or wireless charging. Unfortunately, they won’t be available.
Oppo is a company that makes hits or misses when it comes to cameras. However, they’re generally fine with more expensive units. The Reno 3 has a decent set-up. Its rear consists of a 48 MP wide primary lens, a 13 MP telephoto secondary lens, an 8 MP tertiary ultrawide lens, and a 2 MP B/W sensor.
The 3’s primary camera would take great shots in low-light settings. Speaking of low-light, you’ll be able to use a bright LED flash.
Its front camera consists of a single 44 MP wide sensor. It’ll take photographs that would keep you Instagram-ready. Unfortunately, a bright LED flash isn’t on its selfie camera.
