OPPO is not particularly highlighted in the smartphone market, but it has interesting models. What devices can be recommended for purchase?
For a long time, products under the OPPO brand applied only through China's territory. Here these smartphones became incredibly popular, establishing sales records. However, only those who are interested in Chinese devices, reading resources dedicated to such gadgets heard OPPO.
In general, the company first reached the Russian market back in 2013, but then other companies dominated and in 2014 OPPO ceased trade activities in our country. Acquired peak popularity and increased large sales for sales manufacturer only since 2017. It's time to find out what devices do not disappoint buyers.
OPPO FIND X3 PRO
- Processor : Qualcomm Snapdragon 888
- Screen : 6.7 inch, resolution 3216 × 144 0, 120 Hz
- chambers (main / frontal) : 50 + 50 + 13 + 3 mp / 32 Mp
- Memory (Operational / Built-in) : 12/256 GB
- Battery : 4500 Mah
Disconnect the selection of the top flagship device OPPO FIND X3 PRO. At the moment, this is the company's most advanced in the technical part, which has not only the notorious flagship processor, a huge supply, a large and high-quality screen, but also a few features that can surprise anyone.
The rear camera of the smartphone has 4 modules: the main (50 MP), wide-angle (50 mp) with an angle of view of 110 degrees, television-photo on 13 MP and, most interesting, macro module with permission 3 mp and 60x approximation. Such a powerful zoom allows you to make a full-fledged microscope from the camera of the device. It is not entirely clear how to use it in everyday life, except for pampering. The front camera is represented by a good 32 MP sensor.
The smartphone is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 single-chip system, which is the most powerful Android device in the world. The power of this processor is enough to comfortably run any applications or games at ultra graphics settings for at least another 2-3 years. And thanks to the 6.7-inch screen, 10-bit AMOLED matrix and QHD + resolution, the smartphone is capable of displaying more than a billion colors. The display adapts to tasks and works in a variable refresh rate mode: from 5 to 120 Hz. Gamers will appreciate the O-Sync mode, which reduces touch latency from 35ms to 5-10ms.
OPPO Find X2 Pro
- Processor : Qualcomm Snapdragon 865
- Screen : 6.7 inch, 3168×1440 resolution, 120Hz
- Cameras (rear / front) : 48+48+13 MP / 32 MP
- Memory (RAM / built-in) : 12/512 GB
- Battery : 4260 mAh
In second place is last year's flagship OPPO Find X2 Pro. There is no camera microscope with 60x zoom, the most powerful processor in the world, but for the most part in technical equipment, the device is still very similar to the more advanced and fresh Find X3 Pro model that we talked about earlier. Is a smartphone worth its money today?
The back of the ceramic body (leather-covered version also available) is equipped with the familiar three-chamber system. The main and ultra wide-angle sensors have a resolution of 48 MP. The third camera is a 13 MP telephoto with a periscope lens and support optical zoom 5X. In terms of cameras, everything is on top. The front camera here is 32 MP and also shoots at the flagship level.
In addition to the high quality picture, the smartphone has a huge functionality, he just stuffed with them: shooting video 4K 60FPS, new two-pixel focusing + optical stabilization, which reduces navigation in pictures, 60-fold digital zoom, many add-ons and shooting modes.
In terms of performanceand the stable operation of problems, the smartphone will not arise the next few years due to the flagship 8-nuclear chipset Snapdragon 865 from Qualcomm. There will be no problems with low and unstable FPS in any games and on any graphics settings. Hoping a filling of the battery at 4260 MAH with a quick charging function by 65 W. Just think about it, in 15 minutes the smartphone is charging up to 60%.
OPPO RENO 3 PRO
- Processor : Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G
- Screen : 6.5 inches, resolution 2400 × 1080, 90 Hz
- Camera (Basic / Frontal) : 48 + 13 + 8 + 2 MP / 32 MP
- Memory (Operational / Built-in) : 12/256 GB
- Battery : 4025 Mah
The third line of the rating is the Reno 3 Pro model. Almost the entire Reno line positions itself as the middle class, with the exception of some devices with the "Pro label". Despite the presence of such and Reno 3 Pro, according to the characteristics it is a strong middle class, although it is impossible to make such a conclusion, pushing only from the cost. Let's try to figure it out more detail and consider the smartphone from all sides.
On the back of the case there is a massive system of 4 lenses: the main, wide-angle, television-photo of the sensor and the depth sensor. The last one is a depth sensor that does not have practically no effect on the quality of the picture, and even with such a low resolution. In the rest, we obtain the main sensor on 48 MP with optical stabilization, wide-angle by 8 megapixel with an angle of view of 115 degrees, as well as body-photo with PDAF autofocus, 5-fold hybrid and 20-fold digital zoom.
For the quality of the pictures, this is absolutely not the flagship level. Photos often lack saturation, better color reproduction and contrast. Some snapshots are obtained as if faded with not enough bright colors, which sometimes do not even reach natural. Accordingly, in conditions of insufficient lighting, the picture is worsening. And only during the day, in the bright sun, it turns out to make good frames. The pricing policy of OPPO is not quite clear and what they hoped with cost of 50 thousand rubles and such a filling. The front camera here is 32 MP average quality. There is a large number of broketitation settings and other "pools", as in many other devices.
On the issue of performance here everything is much easier. If the chambers often the situation is not so unambiguous, due to the greater influence of software processing and other parts depending on the software, then the established processor is enough to know in this nuance. Here we have a fresh 8-core "stone" Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G, which was announced in December 2019. This is a 2 + 6 layout, that is, 2 clusters: 1 alpha core Cortex-A76 (up to 2.4 GHz), 1 high-performance Cortex-A76 kernel (the same, but with a frequency of up to 2.2 GHz) and a cluster of 6 energy-efficient Cortex-A55 1.8 GHz.
Thanks to modern architecture and powerful GPU Adreno 620, you can safely launch any high-set games. Structure 2 + 6 allows you to properly save the battery charge, since the truly large nuclei is only 2. It helps prevent heating and high energy costs, while providing a system with sufficient power. The battery is more than 4000 mAh here, which is a good indicator.
- Processor : Qualcomm Snapdragon 710
- Screen : 6.4 inches, resolution 2340 × 1080
- chambers (basic / frontal) : 48 + 5 mp / 16 megapixel
- Memory (Operational / Built) : 6 / 256 GB
- Battery : 3765 Mah
OPPO RENO is one of the main representatives of the middle class among the company's smartphones. Given not the most impressive stuffing, the device received far from the most modest price tag. The only thing that the model boasts is a practically cramless screen, the presence of a module NFC for contactless payment, as well as a good reserve of operational and internal memory. Conditional Xiaomi with its own rules Poco or Redmi could offer a slightly more advanced technical equipment.
It is worth noting that in this model the company went to a new experiment. OPPO RENO uses a unique mechanism of the retractable front camera, which made it possible to make such a cramless screen, which takes more than 93% of the front panel area. The front camera itself has a resolution of 16 megapixels and gives good photos. Is that the retractable module due to its design is often covered with dust, so it must be wiped regularly.
In fact, the rear chamber is alone - loved by many manufacturers of the IMX586 sensor from Sony with a resolution of 48 megapixel, which can often be seen in middle-class smartphones. Helps him a 5 megap depth sensor. In daytime lighting, good snapshots are obtained, and to improve their quality in conditions of lack of light, there is a night mode, which completely copes with its task. Only here when it is used, it is desirable to have "hands-tripods", otherwise the photo will turn out to be dongy due to the lack of good stabilization.
Performance Here corresponds to a single-chip system of the average level of Qualcomm Snapdragon 710. This is 8 cores broken at 2 clusters: 2 high-performance Cortex-A75 cores with a frequency of up to 2.2 GHz and 6 energy-efficient Cortex-A55 operating on frequency up to 1.8 GHz. The chipset is the first in the 700th series, which was designed to reduce the gap between the medium-class processors (600s) and the flagship level (800s).
In fact, the performance of the 710th "dragon" is still closer to the average segment due to the most successful layout of the 2 + 6 nuclei, where in essence the main powerful nuclei of only 2. In turn, this positively affects energy consumption and greater stability. You can play in any games with comfort, but not everywhere it will be possible to do this on the maximum settings of the FPS sidelines.
OPPO RENO 5
- Processor : Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G
- Screen : 6.4 inches, resolution 2400 × 1080, 90 Hz
- chambers (main / frontal) : 64 + 8 + 2 + 2 mp / 44 megapixel
- Memory (operational / built-in) : 8/128 GB
- Battery : 4310 Mah
And one more mid-class representative from OPPO - model Reno 5. It is not entirely clear how the company forms prices for their devices, because the smartphone on paper is almost all better than its relative OPPO Reno. There is a slightly more productive chipset, more memory, better screen and more interesting camera. Except that there is no difference in the device, as it was with the last model and its mechanism of the retractable front camera.
The back of the device is completely made of aluminum. A large variety of colors, to put it mildly, the novelty is no different - you can only buy it in black. Rear is the quadramemeter: the main (wide-angle), ultra-wide-organional on 8 megapixel and lens for macro shooting together with the depth sensor that received a resolution of 2 megapixels.
Sensors are used frankly not the highest quality, it is especially true of the last two, installed rather only for numbers to proudly declare the presence of the Camera quad. Therefore, macro can be done, but pictures will be mediocre, if we compare with competitors for 30-35 thousand rubles. The wide-angle lens here also does not stand out. Snapshots are often obtained with a large number of noise and low detail. But what really surprised is the main chamber of 64 megapixel.
The main sensor issues high-quality photos with a good dynamic range and, as a result, sufficient contrast without slaughtering in the direction of the lack of light or, on the contrary, the oversaturation of them in various fields. There are no obvious noises, the white balance is selected clearly. In general, the main module was pleased. Video records in 4K 30fps with good sound, without any artifacts. The front camera with a resolution in the entire 44 MP has shown itself not worse.
And "under the hood" we have a middle-level chipset SNAPDRAGON 720G from Qualcomm. The letter "G" in the title means high performance and smoothness in games and, in general, everything is. You can play on medium-high graphics settings with comfortable FPS without strong heating and trolling. But avid gamers are better to clearly look towards more powerful chips of the 800th series.
Otherwise, any applications or games on the smartphone will be launched without problems, and obvious problems with "brakes" and lags are not expected here. The battery at 4310 Mah will provide up to 1.5-2 days of the device from 1 charge, even with active use.
OPPO RENO 5 Lite
- Processor : MediaTek Helio P95
- Screen : 6.43 inches, resolution 2400 × 1080
- chambers (basic / frontal) : 48 + 8 + 2 + 2 mp / 32 MP
- Memory (Operational / Built) : 8/128 GB
- Battery : 4310 Mah
OPPO RENO 5 Lite is the younger model Reno 5, which we considered in detail above. The device obtained a significantly weaker processor (mainly it is manifested when working with graphics in comparison with Snapdragon 720G), less high-quality cameras and a screen with support for the update frequency in 60 Hz instead of 90 from the senior version. Perhaps the solution with the limitation of the frequency of the update has also played to hand, since such a chipset is unlikely to "pulled" a full-fledged 90 Hz in many scenarios, especially in games.
On the case also saved, making it plastic, instead of aluminum used in the usual Reno 5. But the number of colors has now doubled and the buyers have a choice between black and lilac. Otherwise, in part of the cameras here, a similar situation with which we have already come across the older model: the main lens gives good pictures with good lighting or at night when activating the appropriate mode, but the rest are upset.
Despite the reduced resolution of the main "peephole" from 64 to 48 megapixel Standard photos without using macro or "Shirika" (8 MP) are pleasing. The device is not very good with blurring the background. It is possible that in a bad depth sensor or software processing, but the boundaries of objects that should not be blurred, Reno 5 Lite sometimes determines inaccurately. The front camera here with a resolution of 32 MP and removes quite medium.
Another place where they decided to explicitly save, a single-grip system became. Works smartphone based on Helio P95 from MediaTek. A lot about the chipset cannot be said, since he did not get much spread. In general, given the presence 8 GB of RAM on board the power will be sufficient for smooth operation in social networks, browser and other applications. As for the games, everything is not so smooth here. You can play, but with a comfortable 60 fps make it possible only on medium-low graphics settings. The weak " video card" from PowerVR affects.
OPPO RENO 4 Lite
- Processor : MediaTek Helio P95
- : 6.43 inches, resolution 2400 × 1080
- chambers (basic / frontal) : 48 + 8 + 2 + 2 mp / 16 + 2 Mp
- Memory (Operative / Built-in) : 8/128 GB
- Battery : 4000 Mah
Speaking about Reno 4 Lite, who got the seventh line in our selection, first of all, I want to emphasize on the presence of 6 cameras and high-quality AMOLED display with FHD + resolution. The model can be great for those users who liked more advanced versions - Reno 5 Lite and Reno 4. For less than 22 thousand rubles, we get a completely capacious battery, a large supply of memory even for the device of the middle class, the possibility of contactless payment and not only.
On paper, the rear camera is not surprising. The main 48 megapixel module, wide-angle with a resolution of 8 megapixel and two additional 2 megapixel. It is not difficult to guess that one of the additional is a sensor for the macro, and the second is the depth sensor. Once again, the company is trying to take our attention in terms of cameras not by high-quality growth, but quantitative. There is similar to Reno 5 Lite, only the main module turns out a closer picture. The rest of the budget level.
The frontal chamber has acquired not only a typical 16 megapixel sensor, but also a depth sensor by 2 megapixel, which allows it to clean the background well. The lack of incorrect definition of the boundaries of the object during the blur, which we met in Reno 5 Lite, was fixed here. Most likely, the presence of a depth sensor on the front of the screen played its role.
"Heart" of a smartphone, although rather crazy, is a fresh 8-core chipset MediaTek Helio P95. The trouble of this "stone" is only that it has a rather weak graphic subsystem from PowerVR. We have already talked about this by considering Reno 5 Lite, so the situation with games and productivity is identical. You can play, but on medium-low, otherwise there will be severe FPS drawdors. Nources the entire battery with a capacity of 4000 mAh.
OPPO RX17 NEO
- Processor : Qualcomm Snapdragon 660
- Screen : 6.4 inch, resolution 2340 × 1080
- chambers (basic / frontal) : 16 + 2 mp / 25 Mp
- Memory (operational / built-in) : 4/128 GB
- Battery : 3600 Mah
In responses about OPPO RX17 NEO, each second claims that this is the most beautiful phone, of all that he met. For the design of Neo Chinese developers, you can precisely praise - at least the appearance of the smartphone and is not original, the device looks really unusually attractive.
The back cover of the apparatus is made of glass and has a gradient color - that is, depending on which the light is falling at what angle, it changes the shade, with blue on light purple. The front line by 91% is occupied by the screen made using AMOLED technology - the image on it is extremely contrasting and bright. The manufacturer did not leave the smartphone "Cheechochka" and managed a drop-shaped neck - increasing this way the useful area in front. Dactyloscopic sensor Not rear, but hidden under the screen - users say that he albeit quite slowly, almost never mistakes.
- Processor : Qualcomm Snapdragon 665
- screen : 6.5 inches, resolution 2400 × 1080
- chambers (main / frontal) : 48 + 8 + 2 + 2 Mp / 16 MP
- Memory (Operational / Built-in) : 4/128 GB
- Battery : 5000 Mah
reached the "arrogant" OPPO smartphones segment, the first representative of which in our selection is the model A72. Despite the quite a democratic price tag, which does not exceed 18 thousand rubles. The device received quite good characteristics. Let's try to consider it more convenient that the manufacturer offers, and also to deal with what segment is the model closer: budgetary or medium?
After you take a device in your hands, a huge pupil of the front camera is immediately striking, neatly located in the upper left corner of the screen. Already the first difference that inclines the scales for A72 towards the budget level. A strong middle class is still preferring better to hide the camera and provide the best ratio of the working surface of the display to the overall area of the front panel. The resolution of the chamber is 16 megapixels, which is quite modest, both on paper and in the quality of the photo in practice. There are big problems with exposure.
The main chamber here with four modules, which is like to proudly declare manufacturers. In fact, this is the main sensor on 48 megapixel, wide-angle on 8 megapixel, module for macro and a 2 megap depth sensor. In fact, the depth of such a sensor is almost no sense, the macro is given to a smartphone with difficulty. You can take a snapshot in this mode, but the quality leaves much to be desired. Photos on the main and wide-angle modules for their price are not bad, but the camera is often a granite and slows down some objects, especially with night shooting.
As for the time of autonomous work and performance, then there is much more positive. Here we have an 8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 with the Adreno 610 graphics core. Most of the cores are energy efficient, and with a battery with a battery for 5000 Mah, it is possible to achieve excellent results. The device can work for about 2 days without recharging with active use. There are practically no problems with games, on medium graphic settings, the chipset copes with its task and provides a comfortable stable FPS.
OPPO A9 2020
- Processor : Qualcomm Snapdragon 665
- Screen : 6.5 inches, resolution 1600 × 720
- chambers (basic / frontal) : 48 + 8 + 2 + 2 mp / 16 megapixel
- Memory (Operational / Built) : 4/128 GB
- Battery : 5000 Mah
Another model from the explicit budget segment is A9 2020. In many respects, the smartphone is similar to OPPO A72 and A52, in a slight exception. It also has a capacious battery for 5000 mAh and to pain familiar to us chipset Snapdragon 665. Explicit changes are visible when we talk about cameras. Each smartphone from this line has strong sides. Here, "sacrificed" by the screen by installing improved cameras.
Given the value of the model, a set of 4 cameras here is not bad. The main lens was obtained by a resolution of 48 megapixel, it has autofocus and fairly accurate face recognition. There are no special complaints for quality, it takes excellent on its cost. When moving to a wide-angle module with 8 MP, a noticeable drop in sharpness is felt. Some objects in the pictures are fluttered or barely distinguishable when working in conditions of insufficient illumination. The system complements the sensor for the macro and the depth sensor. Both with a resolution of 2 megapions.
In a special drop-shaped neck, which was in fashion for a couple of years ago, a front camera was located on 16 megapixel. It is worth noting that there are no optical stabilization in the chambers, but it is hardly possible to attribute to disadvantages. Primary not all devices with a similar price tag there is such a function. There is an electronic, but its effectiveness is not at the highest level, to put it mildly. Also present automatic mode HDR and shooting 4K 30fps.
The second OPPO device from our list receives the same chipset - Qualcomm Snapdragon 665. Considering the favorable screen resolution (only HD +), it can be assumed that any device games will be comfortable to start at least the middle Graphics settings without strong drawings. Daily work will also not cause difficulties. Protigrelations are possible, but will be for A9 2020 rather than a rare exception to the rule than ordness.
- Processor : Qualcomm Snapdragon 665
- Screen : 6.5 inches, resolution 2400 × 1080
- Chambers (Main / Frontal) : 12 + 8 + 2 + 2 Mp / 16 Mp
- Memory (Operational / Built-in) : 4/64 GB
- Battery : 5000 Mah
and again an interesting model from OPPO - A52. And it is interesting to the fact that an order of magnitude cheaper than its older version of the A72 and at the same time practically in anything is not inferior. By technical equipment, one of the main elements of the smartphone remained the same: the Snapdragon 665 processor, the battery 5000 Mah, IPS screen with a resolution of FHD +. Explicit changes have undergone only cameras and a flash drive, which is now reduced by half.
Traditionally, for the overwhelming majority of devices of this price category, we obtain quadraconames with the usual set of lenses: the main (12 MP), wide-angle (8 MP), macro (2 mp) and the depth sensor (2 megapixel). In basic scenarios, the main sensor shows well, especially considering the cost of this model. Well, then smooth graduation down, starting with a wide-angle lens, which will most likely not like you due to the lack of sharpness, correct color reproduction and soap effect. About macro is not particularly and talking - a standard module for a state employee.
OPPO A52 is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 single-gryl system, the structure of which we have already disassembled, getting acquainted with previous devices. In short, the chipset has sufficient power so that you do not have serious problems in using the smartphone. It will provide smooth operation in most applications and comfortable gaming on medium-low graphics settings even in the most difficult games.
Thanks to the agent of the battery at 5000 mAh and the energy-efficient layout of the processor nuclei is achieved by high battery life. The smartphone can work for about 2 days without recharging with active use. There is a branded fast charging technology by 18 W, which allows the model to replenish the energy faster than the usual one.
- Processor : MediaTek Helio P35
- Screen : 6.52 inches, resolution 1600 × 720
- Cameras (Basic / Frontal) : 13 + 2 + 2 mp / 8 Mp
- Memory (Operational / Built) : 4/64 GB
- Battery : 4230 Mah
The penultimate in the selection will be the budget smartphone OPPO A15S. In the face of this model, we get absolutely simple characteristics. The only thing that can be noted from the positive is the capacious battery, a good reserve of operational memory for a state employee for 10 thousand rubles, Helio P35. Is there anything interesting in the device?
The rear camera here is triple: the main module is 13 megapored, the sensor for the macro on 2 Mp and the depth sensor with the same resolution. For photos on social networks, it gives a completely balanced picture, but no more. Other from such a segment and it is impossible to demand. In the embedded application there is a large number of modes and settings. If you play, you can well improve the quality.
The front camera received a resolution of 8 megapixel. Implemented portrait shooting, HDR, as well as AI Selfie Tune mode, which is designed to improve the quality of the photo. It is not recommended to use the latter, since the picture simply loses its naturalness. Although, many this mode may even like.
According to the manufacturer on the official website, the "fast and smooth eight-core processor" of high power is installed here. In fact, removing all the loud marketing phrases behind the braces, we get the budget chipset Helio P35 from MediaTek. This is 8 energy-efficient cortex-a53 nuclei with a maximum frequency of 2.3 GHz. There is no such powerful kernel here, and the graphic system does not allow you to comfortably run games on the settings above the minimum. With autonomy, there will be no problems, given the economy processor and the battery capacity.
This list of the best OPPO smartphones available To buy in the Russian retail or most popular online stores. The devices under this brand are divided into several lines, the most famous of which are the following:
- Find - flagship devices offering top Stuffing and the most advanced technologies in the OPPO Arsenal.
- Reno - Prefalm level devices with an appropriate price.
- A - smartphones of a budget level with large screens, but insufficient performance.
In general, smartphones under the Chinese brand OPPO are not bad in terms of technical equipment. However, it felt that the buyer will have to overpay - competitors are asking for similar products less money.
