Why gamers will love the new OPPO Reno4 Pro 5G

Gamers are a demanding lot – but then the OPPO Reno4 Pro 5G is one formidable smartphone


Unlike the gaming PC or console, the smartphone is, well, more intimate. That means what is outside is almost as important as what is inside.

And what is outside the OPPO Reno4 Pro 5G is a slim industrial design built on a new processing technique called ‘Reno Glow’. On the back of the device are more than a million crystal panes that shine like tiny diamonds, giving the phone an air of refinement that belies its mid-range mooring.

Games can run for hours, so a comfortable grip is more than a trivial item on a checklist – the Reno4 Pro 5G weighs just 172g and is 7.6mm thin, making those long spells hunting down zombies a less draining pursuit.

Don’t be fooled by the slim silhouette of the Reno4 Pro 5G though. Under the hood is some serious muscle that would have even the most fanatical PC/console gamer take a double-take. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset that powers the Reno4 Pro 5G combines 5G and AI to bring real gaming bona fides to the device.

Performance is revved up by the Qualcomm Kryo 475 CPU, while the Qualcomm Adreno 620 GPU provides 10 per cent faster graphics rendering compared to the standard Snapdragon 765G. Plus, select Snapdragon Elite Gaming features fuel smooth interactions and lag-free response.

The Reno4 Pro 5G display is a 6.5-inch AMOLED screen with a 90Hz Refresh Rate.

And AMOLED is not some empty marketing buzzword. The images produced by an AMOLED display do seem to pop out due to its deep blacks and high contrast, especially when compared to other display technologies such as IPS.

The display is also more responsive due to a higher refresh rate making images more fluid and less straining to the eyes. This feature would be merely charming for the average user but for a gamer in a fast-paced, action-packed environment, the superior graphics do provide a real edge.

The refresh rate (measured in Hertz {Hz}), counts the number of times the display updates every second it is on. Faster update times also mean lower latency, because the pixels are being refreshed more often.

The Reno4 Pro 5G refreshes 90 times per second, ideal for gaming performance where a millisecond lag is the difference between getting slain and living to fight another day.

Battery Life
Nothing is more of a buzzkill than a phone dying in the middle of a zombie-killing quest. The large 4000mAh battery capacity of the Reno4 Pro 5G should take the anxiety off.

And if the phone does indeed run out of juice, the world’s safest fast charging technology available commercially on the market, OPPO’s 65W SuperVOOC 2.0, will take the Reno4 Pro 5G from zero to full charge in only 36 minutes. Just enough time to stretch your legs.

But if you must go back to the game quickly, the SuperVOOC 2.0 gets you to 48 per cent of the charge in a mere 10 minutes.

Most smartphone speakers seem like an afterthought, with the belief that the average user will have their earphones plugged in.

OPPO makes no such assumptions; the Reno4 Pro 5G is equipped with two super linear stereo speakers. The lower speaker’s sound cavity is filled with bass materials and as a result, the Reno4 Pro 5G speaker can create bass effects you would hardly expect from a smartphone. When gaming, every scene comes to life with immersive, surround-sound audio that synchronizes with all gaming action on-screen. A secondary effect of speaker construction is the prized tactile sensation.

5G Connectivity
The next chapter of mobile gaming is being written – in the cloud. GeForce by NVIDIA or xCloud by Microsoft bring graphically- demanding games that would normally require a high-powered, expensive gaming PCs or consoles to the mobile sphere.

5G will complete the cloud gaming story by allowing gamers to play intensive multi-player games on their devices with no lag.
