review of the Oppo Reno3: design, ergonomics

the Appearance of Reno3 was quite a classic – on first glance it is an ordinary glass-to-metal “sandwich”. In fact, the tempered glass only covers the screen, but for the rear panels cost glossy plastic. Besides white color, this model also offer blue and black (we got to test) color, which appears a rich fingerprint of the material.

Overall dimensions in the plan – 160,2х73,3 mm smartphone owes a 6.4-inch screen with “cinematic” aspect ratio 20:9. At a thickness of 7.9 mm and weight 170 g Reno3 could be called graceful, if you consider that the built-in battery capacity is 4,000 mAh. But neither of which protect the body from dust or moisture is not mentioned.

so, the whole front panel is covered by Corning Gorilla glass 5, which is Nanhay another, and a protective film with a cutout for the front camera. Decorative lattice “conversational” dynamics placed at the junction of the bezel and the upper end.

Just below it, on a teardrop-shaped “bangs” was a lens selfie camera. At the bottom of the screen reserved for the control panel with virtual buttons that you can hide, or even reject them, and the whole navigation to perform gestures. A little above is the area of the optical fingerprint scanner built into the screen (In-Display).

On the right side is accented by colors of the power button/lock.

On the left-hand edge, in addition to the two buttons to adjust the volume, and was even the slot with the tray where the allocated space for the simultaneous placement of not only both modules subscriber identity (with a nanoSIM card), but also expansion cards microSD.

On the lower end of the connector USB Type-C (USB 2.0) surround the hole for the “conversational” microphone and 3.5 mm audio connector, as well as decorative grille “multimedia” speaker.

At the top left only a hole for the second microphone.

the Lower part of the back panel adorned with the Oppo logo.

the Rear photo-the module is rendered in the upper left part, where the vertical island ledge brought together all four of the lens, and side-placed flash and full text – Zoom Hybrid.

complete with Reno3 is the silicone clip case, which conceals the graceful form of a smartphone, but promises at least some protection.

review of the Oppo Reno3: screen

For the screen Reno3 stopped on AMOLED-matrix with a small keyhole and a standard refresh rate of 60 Hz. 6.4-inch display with a maximum resolution of FHD+ (2400х1080 points) and proportion of 20:9 pixel density per inch is 411 ppi.

to Adjust the brightness either manually or automatically, activating the switch “auto adjust brightness”. In the tab “vision Care” the intensity of the blue filter (“Color temperature of the screen”), proposed to be inserted in a specific time is selected in the range of “cold-warm”. One of the effects of display allows you to protect your eyesight, without reducing the chroma. In a power saving mode dimmable, and available for third-party applications, also include manual and scheduled.

to reduce screen flickering on low brightness, it is recommended to activate the option “No flicker at low brightness to protect the eyes”. Because the technology of DC dimming is the reduction of the supply voltage supplied to the LEDs, the manufacturer warns about the coarsening of the image. After enable the option of “Watch on screen off” should clarify the schedule of work Always On Display. Activation visual effect OSIE (OPPO Screen Image Engine) makes the image more saturated and contrast, improving visualization in third-party applications. Tempered glass Corning Gorilla Class 5 on the screen caused another and a protective film.

review of the Oppo Reno3: camera

One of the main emphases in Reno3 made of photo opportunities.

For the rear photos of the module that defined the mobile chamber Quartet, with an led flash. Key here was the camera on the basis of Sony IMX586, which wide angle lens got an aperture of f/1.8 and phase detection autofocus. As you know, this used Quad sensor color filter Bayer when the photodiodes for a same color can be combined in groups of four, forming a 12-megapixel image (4000х3000 points). In good light the full 48-megapixel resolution (8000х6000 points) provides a high level of detail.

In the blur background helps the main chamber auxiliary (DoF), which is made on the basis of 2-megapixel sensor and lens with an aperture of f/2.4. Note that this camera without filters and gives a black and white image. Supersonicpayday camera on the basis of an 8-megapixel sensor and a lens with an aperture of f/2.2 has a viewing angle of almost 120 (more precisely of 119.9) degrees. Correction of distortion at the edges of the frame narrows the overview to 109 degrees. The same camera is responsible for the macro and the recommended focus distance starts from 2.5 cm Telephoto camera with 13 megapixel sensor and a lens with an aperture of f/2.4 provides 2-times optical zoom.

Processing the images from all cameras allows you to get a 5x hybrid and 20x digital memoryM.

Highly advanced photo module got fans self – fulfilled on the basis of the 44-megapixel Samsung sensor ISOCELL Slim GH1 and wide angle c lens aperture f/2.4. Standard photo resolution is 7296х5472 point. As for the main camera, the interface has a mode with native resolution, here is 7680х5760 points.

the interface of the Camera, the lower part of the viewfinder took for selecting one of the main modes, exchangeable horizontal swipe – “the Night”, “Video”, “Photo” and “Portrait”. In the “Photo” icon at the top of the screen allow you to define the flash, mode HDR, colour saturation, filter or transition settings. The brightness of the image changes the vertical swipe (up or down) next to the circles focus. In the settings easily, for example, to select the desired aspect ratio – 4:3, 1:1, 16:9 or Full (“full screen”). The zoom ratio can be controlled smoothly up to 20th, inclusive, or discretely (0,6, 1x, 2x, 5x).

the Mode “Night”, which is due to the multi-frame noise reduction and long exposure allows you to take quality photos in low light, turning on automatically when illumination falls below 1 Lux (showing the best results at an illumination of 0.3-1 Suite). In addition, this mode provides the use of a tripod. Ultra dark mode is available for shooting selfies.

Tap the icon “More” opens access to additional modes, including “Expert”, “Panorama”, Google Lens, etc, in the “ExpERT”(Pro) offers manual adjustment of ISO, exposure, white balance, focus and exposure compensation steps. Recall that the macro assigned to extra wide camera.

In the regime of Ultra HD (XHD), a special algorithm for stitching multiple images together, and the photo resolution is 108 MP (12 032х9024 points) that correspond to poster size 4,3×3,2 m when the print density 72 dpi. This mode is recommended for clear shooting under bright lighting.

Both photos module write video FHD 1080p@30 fps. But at the back the frame rate to FHD can be increased to 60 fps and the quality to improve up to 4K UHD 2160p@30 fps. Compatible compression provides a standard H. 264/AVC codec, and better benefits (reduced file size) – H. 265/HEVC, in this case the right is selected in the settings. The content is stored in file containers MP4 (AVC/HEVC video, AAC audio).

After you turn on the stabilization regime “extremely stable”, you can switch to “professional extremely stable” with a double correction, thanks to an ultra-wide angle lens.

For shooting video, for example, use bokeh, blurry background

as well as a cinematic technique, as a change in focal length.

a pre-application Soloop will help you to edit the captured videos. In addition, this program is able to impose to the beat of the background music, add transition effectsand subtitles, etc. sample images from the rear photo-module can be viewed here.

review of the Oppo Reno3: sound

Wired headset, included with Reno3, in addition to its direct purpose, yet useful as a short-wave antenna for the FM tuner, no recording of online broadcasts. The voice Recorder captures conversations in the files of the MP3 format, allowing you to leave the sound on these tracks mark time. It can also record phone calls. “Multimedia” speaker, nothing special stands out and is clear, but predictable medium. Regular Music app with support for dark theme is able to play high quality FLAC extension.

In supported technology Dolby Atmos is proposed to use the options “Dynamic”, “Movie”, “Game” or “Music”. When you connect a wired headset to the last one available intelligent or graphic equalizer. For the broadcast audio signal in good quality among the supported Bluetooth codecs it should be noted AAC, aptX/aptX HD and LDAC.

review of the Oppo Reno3: filling, performance

“Flaming engine” Reno3 began MediaTek Helio P90, made for 12-nm process FinFET. The main feature of this crystal was multi-core processing unit AI-APU 2.0 data, which showed a result of 1 165 GMACS (Giga Multiply-Accumulates per Second – billions of operations of multiplication with accumulation in a second). As noted in MediaTek, it’s 50 percent better than competing devices premium. This provides more and longer battery life.

In asymmetrical drape front.hexadecimal clusters Helio P90 includes two processor cores Cortex-A75 2.2 GHz and six cores Cortex-A55 with a frequency of 2 GHz, respectively. Graphics operations closes the accelerator Imagination Technologies PowerVR GM 9446 (970 MHz), and for the optimal distribution of computational tasks on different cores is a proprietary technology CorePilot MediaTek. The chip supports cameras with sensors up to 64 megapixels and their combination up to 24 MP + 16 MP. The number of wireless communications was LTE Cat. 12 (DL)/Cat/ 13 (UL), Wi-Fi, 5 (a/b/g/n/ac) and Bluetooth 5.0.

Abundant memory includes 8 GB of RAM type LPDDR4X and 128 GB of built-in type UFS 2.1. The storage size can be increased by installing it on another place in the closed slot of microSD/HC/XC (up to 256 GB). Support USB-OTG, the smartphone is easy to connect a normal flash drive. Note that previously in the settings, you activate the OTG mode, which shuts off automatically after 10 minutes of inactivity.

For cellular communications, 4G the available bands of LTE-FDD (b3, b7 and b20), as well as LTE-TDD (b38). Of wireless communications it is also worth noting wifi 5 a/b/g/n/ac (2.4 GHz + 5 UUw), 5.0 Bluetooth and NFC.

because the interface NFC, it is possible not only to exchange data between devices using Android Beam, but also to enjoy the benefits of, for example, contactless payment services G Pay. In addition, through the application “Transport card of Moscow” it is easy to know the current balance of the card.

To determine the location used satellite constellations GPS, GLONASS and BDS. To coordinate cellular and Wi-Fi networks in the presence of mode A-GPS.

review of the Oppo Reno3: autonomy

In Reno3 installed battery high-capacity for 4 025 mA*h Quick fill battery ensures proprietary charging VOOC 3.0, and a 20-watt adapter (5 V/4 A) together with the special cable (with green plastic insulator) included. For half an hour the battery is filled to about half, and “under the neck” – little over an hour (according to official data for 73 minutes).

Playback test videos in MP4 format (hardware decoding) at full brightness every hour reduces the battery charge is approximately 7.3% (test for 6 hours). The result is nice but not a record.

In the section “Battery (Battery)” are available tips on how to optimize energy savings and to determine the best operation mode is “High performance”, “Smart mode enhanced performance” (default) or “high performance”. On the ACCeastwooda tab, you can specify power-saving settings that can be activated directly from the quick switch.

review of the Oppo Reno3: the features of the software

Reno3 Smartphone running the Android operating system 10, which interface replaces a proprietary shell ColorOS 7. Notification center combined it with a quick switch, where is the slider to adjust the brightness, accessed using swipe from the top edge of the screen. They say that the dimming modes and care for the vision of this launcher together can save up to 38% battery power.

Card in the list of running applications are placed in one row with the possibility of horizontal scrolling. One program is removed from memory with a swipe of her card up. But for simultaneous closing of all applications use the icon “Remove” at the bottom of the screen. To display total and available amounts of memory, you must activate the corresponding option in the “advanced settings” in the “recent task Manager”. In the section “home screen Wallpaper” is proposed to define a style for app icons. Here, on the tab “home screen Mode”, in addition to simplified, provides a standard mode (all program shortcuts are assembled on the work tables) mode and “box” with a separate menu (screen) applications.

In the section “Convenience” contains tools to help manage smartphone. Thus, the “Convenient button” that offers motion control or via a special menu. On the tab “navigation Buttons”, select the way of navigation – with gestures or virtual buttons. In turn, BokovaI’m smart panel for which you can set the transparency and position, designed for quick access to tools and selected applications.

using fingerprint scanner with an optical sensor, a built-in screen, you can save the papillary pattern with five fingers. Available in settings to choose the animation style pads, which can be flashed on the screen turned off. A scanning pad is quite low, so use a finger of the hand holding the smartphone is not very convenient. The manufacturer will insist that the unlock is spent not more than 0,34 seconds.

face Recognition using the front camera even in low-light conditions proved to be the best. To unlock the screen it is necessary to note the option “Automatic unlock”. Like fingerprints, the acquired biometric information can be used to protect applications and access personal safety Deposit box. This method seemed more convenient and reliable than using podernovo fingerprint scanner.

TWS-headphones Oppo Enco Free: in a recognizable style

this year the company Oppo has introduced the Russian consumers with their first experience in the field of wireless headsets – TWS-headphones Enco Free. The device is turned outstanding both in design and performance.

Oppo Enco Free: technical characteristically: ETI02 (headphones), ETI03 (the case with wireless charging)headphone Type: ear buds (earbuds)Connect: fully-wireless (TWS)emitter Type: dynamic, 13,4 mcatamney range: 16 Hz – 20 gcinterval: 5.0 Bluetooth (SBC, AAC), radius 10 memcache Li-ion batteryth: 31 mA*h (earphone), 410 mAh (charger case)Interface for wired charging: USB Type-C (5 V/1 A)charging Time: 110 minutes – case-battery, 70 minutes for naushnikov work music/talk (50% volume): 5 h/3 h (without cover), 25 hours/12 hours (with charging case)Protection from water (headphone): ІРХ4Вес: 48,2 g (only the device) 4.6 g (headphones)Color: black, white

For Enco Free offers only two classic color – black and white. Overall dimensions and weight of this accessory hardly stands out among her “classmates”. The set includes three silicone sleeves (S, M and L), and the certification guarantees IPX4 protection against splashing from any direction.

On the charging case with rechargeable battery is USB Type-C connector for wired charging, the led, and mechanical button for pairing the Bluetooth interface 5. Capacity built-in charger case battery is 410 mAh, and the battery in each earpiece – 31 mA*h For a wired gadget charging via USB connector Type-C recommended 5-watt adapter (5 V, 1 A). In this case, the process of filling a completely empty battery in the case will take 110 minutes, or 70 minutes for the battery of the headphone.

50% volume music playback on a single charge will last up to 5 hours. Thus filled in “under the neck” the battery in the case can charge the headset four times, so the total range will increase to 25 hours. But for phone conversations when the manufacturer promises active noise reduction (because each earpiece has two microphones), the operating time will be 3 and 12 hours, respectively.

After the first binding Enco Free, you just have to open the battery case, to re-connect with a smartphone. Of Bluetooth codecs here are just the AAC and SBC. Audio is in sync for each earphone separately. To control the headset uses gestures that on the headphones provided for the touchpad. By default, to change the track need to hold your finger on the right earpiece up or down, and to reduce/increase the volume on the left. By the way, the volume is decent. Dual touch panel of any one of the earphone stops the song or answer the call. Our online store, at the time of testing, the Enco Free offered for the price of 10 990 rubles.

review of the Oppo Reno3: buy, insights

Oppo Reno3 claims the title of good average performance, which got a CPU with a powerful unit for processing AI data, supplemented by generous reserves of RAM and internal memory. In addition, it is particularly noteworthy capacious battery, fast charging and advanced photo-opportunities that are closer to the flagship, and for shooting a selfie highlighted a 44-megapixel camera. Other advantages of the device include a bright AMOLED screen, NFC interface and a fresh system software.

the Presence of easily soiled plastic shell and slow the fingerprint scanner under the screen exacerbates the not-too-attractive price at the start of sales. At the time of testing in the corporate online store for Oppo Reno3 asked 29 990 rubles.

For the same money in major retail chains at the time of the review publication can be bought, for example, 20 Huawei Honor Pro (our review here) in the configuration 8 GB/256 GB with a 6.26-inch IPS-screen A71 or Samsung Galaxy (our review here) in a configuration of 6 GB/128 GB with a huge of 6.7-inch Super AMOLED Plus. Note that according to the usual CPU benchmarks rivals have a solid head start in power, and quartets of the rear cameras are very competitive, and Galaxy A71 camera even got a 64 megapixel sensor. Besides, on the power opponents look very good, here again distinguished “galaxy” with a battery of 4,500 mAh and 25-watt charging, but Honor Pro 20, in turn, promised half an hour with the help of 22.5-watt adapter to fill the a capacity of 4 000 mA*h about half. But here’s where the power is activated a new AI module in the processor, for example, when face recognition, Reno3, I think it looks still more attractive.
