Smartphone buyers who are willing to shell out more than Rs. 20,000 are correspondingly looking for a product that will justify its price. The universe of a smartphone buyer’s requirements consist of sizable RAM (above 4GB), good storage that exceeds 64GB, a long-lasting battery, an excellent primary camera and an equally high resolution selfie camera, an advanced processor and maybe a graphics processing unit, if the user is intent on using their smartphone for gaming.
In the Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 15,000 price segment, a buyer might be happy to have about 50% of these requirements met. Notching up to the Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 20,000 price point, buyers will expect almost all of these specifications to be met if they are going to buy a given smartphone. For buyers spending anything in excess of Rs. 20,000, the smartphone must meet, if not exceed, these specifications.
Does the Oppo Reno 3 Pro justify its price? Does it have all the specifications that a buyer spending Rs. 20,000+ would demand in a smartphone? Let’s have a look by putting this Oppo mobile, launched in March 2020, under the microscope.
RAM and storage
The base model of the Oppo Reno 3 Pro comes with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. A smartphone’s RAM is responsible for the device functioning smoothly. Insufficient RAM is what causes those annoying “not enough memory” dialogue boxes that appear when users are trying to carry out simple tasks on their smartphones. Users whose smartphone activities are restricted to communication and streaming usually settle for 4GB RAM, but users who use their smartphones for gaming usually look for 6GB RAM or 8GB RAM.
Depending on how much content one intends to store on the phone — pictures, videos, games etc., one can also opt for the 256GB storage variation of this Oppo mobile model.
This Oppo mobile comes with a 4020 mAh battery that is accompanied by a 30W flash charger. According to Oppo, the Oppo Reno 3 Pro’s battery can support a standby time of 362 hours and a talktime of 36 hours. Its charger is touted to charge the phone to 50% in just 20 minutes and 5 minutes of charge reportedly gives the phone enough battery power to allow two hours worth of video playback.
The Oppo Reno 3 Pro comes with a quad rear camera set-up, featuring a 64MP primary sensor, a 13MP telephoto camera, an 8MP wide angle lens with a 119-degree field of view, and a 2MP mono camera. The smartphone has a dual selfie camera that features one 44MP lens and one 2MP depth sensor. Reviewers in general seem to love the day shots and find the low lighting shots to be fairly alright.
Processor and Operating system
This Oppo mobile runs on the MediaTek Helio P95 octa core processor that boasts a clock speed of 2.2GHz. It runs on the Android v.10 OS.
Dimensions and display
A 6.4-inch full screen AMOLED display with 2400 X 1800 pixel resolution adds delight to any streaming or gaming activities. When it comes to small versus large phones, this model is definitely at the larger end of the spectrum — great for users who prefer large phones. However, this might be a deterrent if you prefer petite smartphones.
