OPPO Reno4 comes with a number of interesting features including a 6.40-inch touchscreen display, an octa-core processor, 8GB of RAM, 128 GB of internal storage, 4015mAh battery and a 30W VOOC Flash Charge 4.0 charge support.
For the cameras, which is what we will be looking at in this review article, OPPO Reno4 packs five cameras – a 48-megapixel primary camera; a second 8-megapixel camera; a third 2-megapixel camera and a fourth 2-megapixel camera. The selfie camera is 32-megapixel.
The four cameras at the back of the OPPO Reno4 led by the 48-megapixel Sony IMX 586 main sensor do a great job. Just as we have seen with all the devices in the Reno series, the camera does not disappoint. There’s also an 8-megapixel ultra wide-angle lens and 2-megapixel mono chrome lens.
The images produced are excellent, pretty much what you would expect for a phone at that price range. They are decent with some good amount of detail and sharpness. The colours are also good, especially with good lighting.
Low Light shots are also good, thanks to the ultra-dark mode which is also available for selfies.
Other camera modes include portrait, slow-mo, HDR, Panorama, text scanner among others.
