After the initial success to Reno 10x Zoom, Chinese smartphone manufacturer OPPO has launched Reno 2 series — Reno 2 (20x digital zoom), Reno 2Z and Reno 2F — before Diwali in India that pack quad rear cameras, pop-up selfie camera and attractive designs.

The flagship Reno 2 (8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage) is priced at Rs 36,990. The device would go on sale, starting September 20.

After spending more than a week with Reno 2, here is what we think of the device.

The USP of the device is 48MP quad camera setup. The camera system includes a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor that supports optical image stabilisation (OIS) and electronic image stabilisation (EIS), 13MP telephoto lens, an 8MP wide-angle camera and 2MP macro lens.

The Reno 2 comes with 5x hybrid zoom support and 20x digital zoom.

In terms of low-light photography, there is an ultra-dark mode. The rear camera performed really well in various lighting conditions. Simply, the camera being the major highlight did impress with the neat images.

If you love photography but do not have the budget to invest on a premium smartphone, Reno 2 is the best option right now with 20X zoom.

The device also houses a shark-fin selfie camera with 16MP resolution that pops out at an angle. The front camera too worked fine during the testing. It captured good-quality images with ample detailing and near accurate colours.

In terms of design, the smartphone manages to stand out in the crowd. The phone retains the same design elements as the original Reno.

The top of the device houses selfie camera while the bottom sports 3.5mm headphone jack, Type-C port and a speaker grille.

The quad camera setup at the back is vertically placed under the glass with the OPPO logo and “Designed for Reno” — protected by “O-Dot” ceramic bead that aims to prevent the camera from getting scratches.

The volume rockers are on the left and power button on the right, both quite easy to operate.

The Reno 2 comes with a 6.55-inch Dynamic AMOLED display. The phone offers FHD+ (2400×1080) resolution and a screen-to-body ratio of 93.1. The front of the device is completely all display with no notch and very slim bezels. It also houses an in-display Fingerprint Unlock 3.0 scanner.

The display was bright indoors as well as outdoors. If you love watching videos, you would definitely like the display. Netflix streaming was an amazing experience.

The Reno 2 is powered by 2.2GHz Snapdragon 730G processor that is based on a 8nm process and comes equipped with an Adreno 618 GPU. The phone runs Android 9 Pie with ColorOS 6.1 on top.

For those who love online gaming, the phone is near perfect.

Apart from the above combination of hardware and software, the huge screen also helped make games more immersive.

Oppo Reno 2 packs 4,000mAh battery with USB Type-C port. The battery lasted almost an entire day on a single charge. The in-house VOOC fast-charging technology quickly charged the device in less than an hour.

Conclusion: The Reno 2 is among the best options in the Rs 30,000 and above price segment, dominated by OnePlus 7. In terms of novelty, Reno 2 takes over OnePlus 7. A perfect buy to gift your near and dear ones this Diwali. (IANS)
