Oppo just announced the first three of the Reno5 family, and it's likely going to be a large family. How do we know? Well, there are a total of eight Reno4s in our database, and it's one of them that we'll be presenting to you today - the Reno4 Z 5G.
The most affordable of the 5G-enabled 4th-gen Renos, the Z 5G retails for €300 - that's less than half the Reno4 Pro 5G's official asking price and roughly two-thirds of the Reno4 5G's price tag.
The Reno4 Z 5G is powered by a Mediatek Dimensity 800 chipset instead of the Snapdragon 765Gs in the other two. Still, it's not really grounds for concern - a close relative to that SoC, the 800U we got to see recently, performed admirably. Another moderately polarizing bit could be the 6.57-inch LCD. The OLED lovers might scoff at the choice of panel technology, but this one does come with a 120Hz refresh rate. Which brings us to the next point - a 4,000mAh battery with a 120Hz LCD? Sounds a little troubling, but we'll see about that.
Three proper cameras and three sort-of cameras made their way to the Reno4 Z 5G. There's a 48MP primary unit on the back, joined by an 8MP ultra-wide, and then you get a 2MP macro module and a 2MP unit for depth sensing. Another one of those is keeping company to the 16MP selfie camera in a pill-shaped cutout in the display's top left corner.
For the 4 Z 5G, Oppo chose the usual Reno presentation - a teal sleeve holds the white cardboard box. The contents are fairly standard, too, though the 18W adapter is a bit on the lower end of the power spectrum - it's certainly no 65W SuperVOOC 2.0. If you can put a positive spin on that, it would be that the USB-A-to-C cable isn't proprietary, unlike on the higher-wattage systems.
Also included is a set of earbuds with a 3.5mm plug - the Reno4 Z 5G is nicely old-school in this respect, unlike the other 2 5G-capable Reno4s. You'll find one more useful accessory in the bundle is a protective case, a transparent silicone one.
I regret buying this phone. So many problems, so few things work properly/well. I can't return the phone because I can't say categorically what is wrong with it. Just about everything fails every two-three days but not every day. Utterly ...
Definitely is. Happens to me as well, I think this is because they made the phone too good for too cheap, has many drawbacks. Probably gonna get a new phone and sell or give to my sister that still uses an iPhone 5s :)
I'm getting upwards of 8h on 60hz. Something wrong with your battery? Must try 120hz though. Just try 90, a nice little compromise.
