Oppo Reno 2Z Review
Oppo Reno 2Z is among the first to sport a MediaTek Helio P90 SoC It runs ColorOS 6.1 on top of Android 9 Pie The Oppo Reno 2Z has a quad camera setup at the back
Oppo recently launched three smartphones as a part of the Oppo Reno 2 series, the Oppo Reno 2Z, Reno 2, and the Reno 2F. What’s surprising is that these new models have coque a10 samsung paysage been launched only a few months after the original Reno series. Interestingly, Oppo has only revealed the prices of the Oppo Reno 2 and the Reno 2Z so far, while the India price of the Reno 2F will be revealed later.
The Chinese smartphone maker has priced the Reno 2Z at Rs. 29,990 in India, and it is the more affordable model of the two already available in the country. Is it better than what the competition offers at this price We put it to the test to find out.
Oppo Reno 2Z designAll three Reno 2 coque transparente a40 samsung smartphones seem to have similar designs at first glance, and it is hard to distinguish between them. The Oppo Reno 2Z has an all display front with thin borders on the top and sides, though the bottom bezel is thicker. The AMOLED display on the Reno 2Z measures 6.5 inches diagonally and coque samsung a5 2017 aicek has good viewing angles. It also houses an optical warmachine coque iphone 6 coque7iphone21778 in display fingerprint scanner for unlocking the device with a fingerprint.
Oppo has located the selfie camera in a pop up module which is different compared to the shark fin module that some of the other Oppo Reno devices flaunt. This pop up module is illuminated by lights on either side, and reminds us of what we’ve seen on the Redmi K20 Pro (Review) which has a similar selfie camera module. The Reno 2Z also offers the option to change the light colour, which is a neat touch.
Oppo has placed the power kc coque iphone 6 coqueiphone140763 button on the right while the volume buttons are on the left. These are coque iphone 6 stranger dandelion heart coque samsung s10 antens102021796 things mike all positioned towards the centre of the frame which makes reaching them convenient. We also liked their clicky feedback.
Cool kids like pop up modules, this one lets you change light colour
At the bottom, the Oppo Reno 2Z coque a50 samsung lion sports a USB Type C port, primary microphone, loudspeaker, and 3.5mm audio jack whereas the pop up selfie coque iphone 4 dauphin camera and the secondary microphone are on the top.
The Oppo Reno 2Z boasts of a quad camera setup, which sits flush with the back of the device, unlike many other recent smartphones which have protruding camera modules. The fourth sensor is positioned lower than the rest and is easy to miss. All the camera sensors are placed beneath shockproof coque iphone 5 the glass panel on the back. To prevent the glass around the cameras from getting scratched, Oppo has positioned a nub above this cluster which helps raise the phone when placed on a flat surface.
Oppo ships a high quality case along with a pair of earphones and a 20W VOOC Flash Charge 3.0 charger in the box. This new processor isn’t very common yet, and the Reno 2Z is among only a few phones to sport it so far. The Helio P90 has six ARM Cortex A55 cores clocked at 2GHz msk coque galaxy a20e and two smallest toughest coque iphone 6 coqueiphone144784 Cortex A75 cores clocked at 2.2GHz. It’ll be interesting to see how it stacks up against some of the other processors available in phones coque iphone 6 roi lion at this price point. The Oppo Reno 2Z has been launched in only one configuration, with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. You can expand storage using the dedicated microSD card slot.
Oppo offers dual 4G VoLTE functionality with the Reno 2Z and there is also support for Bluetooth 5, dual band Wi Fi, four satellite navigation systems, and USB OTG. The Reno 2Z also gets the standard sensors.
No notch on this big 6.5 inch AMOLED display
The front of the Oppo Reno 2Z is dominated by a 6.5 inch full HD+ (1080×2340 pixels) AMOLED display which gives this phone a screen to body ratio of 91.1 percent. The display is vivid and you can tweak its colour temperature. We found that viewing angles are good, and it does get bright enough to be visible outdoors.
Oppo ships the Reno 2Z with Colour OS 6.1 running on top of Android 9 Pie, and our unit was running the August security patch. The UI is similar to what we have seen on recent Oppo and Realme smartphones and we had no trouble navigating around it. Oppo also offers gesture navigation if you don’t like the traditional three button layout. Android 9’s Digital Wellbeing feature is available, and the phone also has parental controls that let you monitor and restrict usage.
We found a fair amount of bloatware preinstalled on the device, including the UC Browser, NewsPoint, Dailyhunt, Helo, Paytm, Amazon, and Facebook apps. We found that the usage experience was good as long as we didn’t open these apps because once we did, some of them started pushing spammy notifications to us throughout the day. Oppo has its own Play Store alternative called App Market which lets you download apps, and similarly there’s Game Center for games.
Color OS 6.1 also has a feature called Game Space which blocks notifications, disables auto brightness, and clears the RAM when you launch a game. Other features such as Smart Driving and App Cloner are also present on the Reno 2Z.
Oppo Reno 2Z performance, battery life and camerasSince the Oppo Reno 2Z is among a few phones with a MediaTek Helio P90 SoC, we were curious to see how it performs compared to Qualcomm’s popular Snapdragon processors. We did not experience any lag or stutter while using the smartphone. Multitasking was a breeze, and the 8GB of RAM meant that the Reno 2Z could keep apps running in the background.
The in display fingerprint scanner on the Reno 2Z is super quick and we had no issues using it. We also set up face recognition on the Reno 2Z. The phone is quick to raise its pop up module and scan for a registered face. It unlocks quickly in different lighting conditions, and can bump up the screen brightness if needed in low light conditions for a proper scan.
Reno 2Z runs Color OS 6.1 on top of Android Pie
We ran our standard set of benchmarks. The Oppo Reno coque samsung galaxy a5 2017 poisson 2Z managed to clock 162,117 in coque telephone samsung a20e licorne AnTuTu, which isn’t much. In PCMark Work 2.0, the smartphone managed 8,723 points which is a lot higher than the 6,487 scored by the Snapdragon 710SoC in the same test.
The smartphone managed to score 1,189 and 24,862 in 3D Mark Slingshot Extreme OpenGL and Ice Storm Unlimited respectively. In GFXBench, the Reno 2Z scored 48fps and 17fps in GFXBench T Rex and Manhattan 3.1 tests respectively. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 710SoC managed to score 50fps and 20fps in the same tests respectively.
We played PUBG Mobile on the Reno 2Z and the device defaulted to the High preset with graphics set to HD and the frame rate set to High. We could not bump the quality up further, but the device ran the game at these settings without any issues. We played the game for 29 minutes, after which the device registered an 8 percent coque samsung a40 militaire battery drop. It was also barely warm to the touch after gaming.
The in display fingerprint scanner is quick to scan your digits
The Oppo Reno 2Z packs in a 4,000mAh battery and manages to go beyond a day and a half with regular usage. We used the smartphone for playing PUBG Mobile, taking camera samples, and periodic Web browsing. In our HD video loop test, the Reno 2Z managed to go on for 16 hours and 20 minutes. The bundled 20W charger charged the phone up to 48 percent in 30 minutes and 88 percent in an hour. A full charge coque de licorne iphone 5 on the device took around 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Oppo has gone coque samsung a20e bague with a quad camera setup on the Reno 2Z, consisting of a 48 megapixel primary sensor with an f/1.7 aperture; an 8 megapixel wide angle camera with an f/2.2 aperture and a 119 degree field of view; a 2 megapixel monochrome sensor; and a 2 megapixel depth sensor. The primary sensor is the high end Sony IMX586, which has recently been used for affordable devices such as the Realme 5 Pro. There is no optical telephoto camera like we saw on the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom Edition, and this new device relies on digital zoom. At the front, the pop up module packs in a 16 megapixel camera.
The camera software is similar to what we have seen on the Oppo Reno series and offers multiple modes to choose from. There are Night, Pano, Time Lapse, and Expert modes apart from the regular photo and video modes. There are quick toggles for HDR, filters, and Dazzle Color. Weirdly, Oppo has implemented a toggle button to switch to the wide angle camera, which isn’t as intuitive as the controls we’ve fyy coque iphone 6 seen on most other phones. One other oddity was that to take full resolution 48 megapixel shots, we had to go into the camera settings and change the photo aspect ratio to 4:3 (48MP). This is easy to miss, and we feel that the camera app could do with some tweaks to make coque shaman coque iphone 6 actual size coque7iphone17713 iphone 6 it more user friendly…
