OPPO Reno5 Pro comprehensive review

The previous article made a basic evaluation of OPPO Reno5 Pro, and today I will do a comprehensive evaluation of OPPO Reno5 Pro.The beauty of OPPO phones has always been reassuring, and the Reno series is one of the best, always bringing some differences in design. For example, when everyone is doing ordinary lifting structures, Reno brings a side-rotating lifting structure, and when 5G mobile phones are generally thick and heavy, the Reno series has captured the needs of users for thin and light 5G mobile phones.

OPPO Reno5 Pro continues the ultra-light and thin design. From the Reno3 series, users can see the thin and light limit of 5G mobile phones. The Reno4 series incorporates OPPO’s imaging thinking and is in a separate vein. The OPPO Reno5 series that is coming now essentially maintains the style of the previous Reno4 series. It not only uses the standard version and the Pro version to match the high and low levels, but also maintains the level of 5G experience under the principle of continued lightness and thinness. The overall response to the previous work, the style is changed end.

The OPPO Reno5 Pro has a body thickness of 7.6mm and a weight of only 173g. It has a first-rate grip. Students who are more distressed about their little fingers should like it very much. And while maintaining a thin and light body, its built-in battery capacity has also been increased to 4350mAh, with 65W super flash charge, the overall battery life performance is more reassuring.

In terms of overall design style, OPPO Reno5 Pro and OPPO Reno4 Pro are in the same line, there is not much difference. The official size data is 7.6mm thickness and 173 grams weight, which is almost the same as Reno3 Pro. It is very light to hold. Its main change is the internal structure of the inch of gold: compared with the previous generation of screen FPC is shorter by 1.9mm, the motherboard area is reduced by 3% compared with the previous generation, the fingerprint holder wall thickness is reduced to the limit of 0.25mm, fingerprint The size of the module has been reduced from 7.254.8mm² to 5.844.63mm², leaving room for a 350mAh larger battery than the previous generation. The side-mounted perforated OLED curved screen, FHD resolution and 90Hz refresh rate have not changed, which is consistent with the previous work. The color of the middle frame is consistent with the body, and the visual integration is stronger.

The OPPO Reno5 Pro has a unique star diamond technology on the back of the fuselage. The back of the camera has large tactile damping, clear and perceptible coating grain, and hardly leave any fingerprints. It stays clean for a long time, so that we are shooting the appearance of the real machine. You don’t even need to wipe its back. This is very different from the AG of similar products. Compared to Reno4 Pro, the star diamond craftsmanship of this work has been upgraded slightly, mainly because the brilliance has increased by 35% compared to the previous generation.

The front of the OPPO Reno5 Pro phone is equipped with a 6.55-inch OLED hyperboloid screen. The hole is located in the upper left corner. The aperture is small. The interior is a 3200W dot water lens. It supports AI radiant video beauty. The screen itself supports 90Hz high refresh rate and The 180Hz touch sampling rate is sensitive and smooth for daily and game use.

The back of the OPPO Reno5 Pro fuselage is also comfortable to hold 3D curved glass, which is thinner in terms of feel and vision, and the iconic RenoGlow crystal diamond process has also been newly improved. OPPO’s substrate, etching solution, growth environment, and input The liquid angle and many other angles are optimized, and the star diamond process with a “pyramid” crystal structure is finally obtained. It not only perfectly retains the better abrasion, scratch resistance and fingerprint resistance than ordinary AG glass, but also has a larger reflective area of microstructure It also brings a 35% increase in brilliance compared to the previous generation, which truly achieves both the gloss and anti-fingerprint of the matte surface.

The upper left corner of the OPPO Reno5 Pro back cover is a 6400W water-light portrait four shots arranged in a rounded rectangle, and the upper and lower right sides are the letter logos of oppo and RENO GLOW. You can feel the three-dimensional concave and convex feeling when you swipe your finger, the shiny surface and the star diamond. The collision also enhances the stylish temperament of the whole machine in the contrast.

In the middle frame, the volume button and the power button are arranged in relative positions on the left and right. The buttons are designed with curved surfaces, and the corners are rounded and will not scratch your hands.

The bottom is the front and back double-sided nano-SIM card slot, Type-C interface and speaker openings. A decorative strip with the words Design for Reno is uniquely embedded on the top.

What’s more unique is that the OPPO Reno5 Pro we got the Galaxy Incoming Dream color version, which added luminous materials to the top and the decoration of the camera module. After being irradiated during the day, there will be a faint yellow in the dark. The green fluorescence appeared, indeed like a glimmer of light in a dream. Incorporating the luminous into the mobile phone, it has to be said that OPPO’s design inspiration is overflowing.

Of course, the other three color schemes, such as Aurora Blue, Moonlight Black, and Star Wish Red, are also unique. For example, Star Wish Red is used as the New Year’s version of the color, and a simple bull head logo that is not available in other versions is added, representing the upcoming 2021. Year of the Ox. That’s it for the appearance evaluation of OPPO Reno5 Pro. Next, let’s talk about the evaluation of the imaging system.

Imaging system. The rear of OPPO Reno5 Pro is equipped with a 64MP main camera + 8MP ultra wide-angle camera + 2MP retro portrait camera + 2MP macro camera. From the paper parameters, this specification is not as good as Reno4 Pro, and it is more like an upgrade based on Reno4. The official 64MP main camera has not yet announced the specific model, but judging from the extremely distinctive features of f/1.7 aperture and four-in-one equivalent of 1.4μm, it is likely to be the popular OV64B for a long time.

OV64B is an image sensor that uses 0.7 micron dots, four-in-one color filter array and on-chip hardware dots to achieve a 64 million resolution image sensor, 16 million dots, single dots in four-in-one mode Equivalent to 1.4 microns. Its bottom is only 1/2″, and the effect is more dependent on the manufacturer’s adjustment level. As for the front camera, Reno5 Pro is equipped with a classic 32 million camera, f/2.4 aperture, 0.8um single point size, 1/2.8 Sensor.

Last month, OPPO launched a brand new OPPO FDF full-dimensional portrait video technology system at OPPO INNO DAY 2020, which is called a release of OPPO’s years of accumulation of beauty technology. The first new product equipped with OPPO’s portrait video technology system is the OPPO Reno5 series in our hands, which acted as a pioneer and became early adopters.

Specifically, the OPPO FDF full-dimensional portrait video technology system carried by the Reno5 series is composed of two engines: portrait perception and image quality enhancement, which are respectively optimized for the main character and the overall picture during portrait shooting to achieve human beauty. , Jingmei’s shooting effect, adapt to single person, multiplayer, day, night, backlight and other scenes of creative freedom. Among them, the AI face detection uses a deep separable convolution model, which has a smaller volume and a shorter calculation time. According to OPPO official data, its face detection accuracy rate is as high as 99.78%, and the single frame detection takes only 25ms. This also provides a solid foundation for a series of fine optimizations such as AI ultra-clear portraits, OFL skin quality optimization, and facial distortion correction.

Let me first talk about the perceptual portrait engine of OPPO Reno5 Pro. It has functions such as AI face detection, AI ultra-clear portrait, OFL skin quality optimization calculation, and face distortion correction. According to official data, AI face detection optimizes the network model to achieve 99.78% detection accuracy and 25ms single frame detection time.

In the actual experience, whether shooting videos or taking photos, OPPO Reno5 Pro can quickly detect the face area and delineate a precise range for subsequent face optimization. At the same time, AI Calculator marked 296 key points in the face area to distinguish facial features and contour details.

Furthermore, the race, gender, age and other information identified according to the above steps. The phone will follow the actual makeup steps: face judgment, base makeup, concealer, shaping, makeup, and match the most suitable makeup plan. Therefore, when taking a group photo with OPPO Reno5 Pro, you can find that there are different dimensions of beauty optimization for male and female subjects.

In this process, the AI super-clear portrait has designed three sub-modules in the deep neural network model to perform super-resolution calculation, noise reduction optimization and sharpness optimization on the face. Even in a low light environment, the face and neighboring areas can be accurately detected and enhanced through calculations to enhance the clarity of the face while making the details more refined.

OFL skin quality optimization algorithm can perform AI processing on skin color and skin quality separately, helping users remove facial blemishes and optimize skin performance during shooting. According to official data, this set of calculations can achieve the segmentation of 96.5% of the skin area, and the accuracy of facial skin reaches 97.4%. “Skin color detection” includes not only facial skin, but also neck and hand skin, covering almost all skin areas that will be exposed when shooting portrait videos.

It is worth mentioning that OFL skin quality optimization algorithm can also achieve AI blemish removal effect, intelligently recognize the characteristics of natural and acquired blemishes, and achieve a more natural blemish removal effect. Acne defects such as spots, acne and eye bags will be removed, and natural facial features such as moles will be preserved.

Whether it’s taking photos or video recording, OPPO Reno5Pro supports rich and natural beauty effects. Not only can the 296 facial feature points be detected to make the most suitable beauty optimization for the user, the user can also manually perform “dermabrasion, face thinning” 100-level fine adjustments in eight dimensions, including “big eyes, thin nose, chin, small face, makeup, and three-dimensional”, to customize the exclusive personal beauty effect.

In video shooting, OPPO Reno5 Pro also supports AI recognition customization and fine customization of 8-fold 100-level beauty effects. With the AI face detection function in the OPPO FDF full-dimensional portrait video system, Reno5Pro will exceed 200 frames per second. High-speed detection of 296 key points on the face of the person in the video is performed at a rate of speed to ensure accurate real-time recognition and optimization. It is not a “poor quality beauty” that simply sets a filter that will seriously affect other parts of the photo other than the face.

After actual testing, the recognition and optimization processing is quite stable. Even if there is a fast movement, it will not appear and disappear like ordinary beauty camera software. You don’t have to worry about the AI rejuvenation beauty in the shooting. At the same time, the exposure control and brightness uniformity of the entire screen are also better. During the process, we deliberately adjusted the brightness of the studio lights. The contrast model on the left showed a large area of overexposure of the face of the person, and the AI video was turned on for radiant beauty. OPPO Reno5 Pro’s processing look and feel is much better, although the brightness also changes, but the entire face of the character is clearly visible.

In a complex light environment, OPPO Reno5 Pro’s recognition and restoration of human skin color is also significantly better. The beauty effect is stable during the dynamic process, and the face of the character is brightened without causing the neon sign highlight area on the back to be overexposed. In the case of the background brightness unchanged, OPPO Reno5 Pro accurately recognizes the skin of a person, and performs targeted optimization. With the help of OPPO Reno5Pro’s AI radiant beauty, the skin of the person is fair and delicate, and the acne is easily wiped off. Flat, the slight oily shine on the back of overtime has also been processed into a soft highlight, and the skin texture has become the watery skin that everyone likes, and the complexion has instantly improved several levels.

As for the beauty camera effect, it is even more surprising. From the proofs, while the human skin is moisturized and shiny, the delicate skin texture is retained, and the hair is still distinct, showing precise optimization for facial skin, so the first impression is to make people I feel that the skin of the character itself is very good, rather than a simple violent dermabrasion. The faint makeup effect on the eyebrows of the proofs also makes people feel very clean and natural, and will not look greasy and smudge like ordinary beauty optimization.

The daily shooting OPPO Reno5 Pro’s exposure level and dynamic range are good, the partial backlighting of the sky is not overexposed, and the details of the Christmas decorations in the shadow of the building in the foreground are also better restored, such as green space, Christmas tree, colored balls, snowman red hat, etc. Some colors are bright and the overall white balance is accurate.

In the automatic mode, OPPO Reno5 Pro can already take high-quality night scene photos, and after the night scene mode is turned on, the overall performance of the proofs will be further improved. For example, there are many highlights in the picture. Although the automatic mode has tried to control the highlight overflow range and did not affect the overall look and feel of the picture, the night scene mode has better control of the highlights, and more content is restored. The overall picture The brightness is more uniform and the details are richer.

“Image quality enhancement” aspect. The image quality enhancement engine includes a new generation of super anti-shake calculation, mobile time-lapse photography, and super night scene video, which can guarantee a satisfactory picture in scenes such as large picture shake, insufficient light/over bright and other scenes. The most obvious change we found from OPPO Reno5 Pro is that the video super night scene and LiveHDR function have since been combined into one, and click the “AI” button to turn it on.

Through actual experience, we found that OPPO Reno5 Pro’s night scene video shooting capabilities have been enhanced, and shooting in low-light environments can also get brighter, purer, more accurate, and clearer pictures. LiveHDR can provide brighter, more natural, and clearer video effects even under strong light conditions.

Super night scene video is integrated with HDR calculation based on the previous generation algorithm, and the brightness adjustment curve is distinguished and debugged. Calculation first will intelligently judge whether to enable the night scene or the HDR brightness adjustment curve according to the current brightness environment to achieve a more transparent and look Better video effects.

Whether it is OPPO Reno5 Pro or its first OPPO FDF full-dimensional portrait video technology system, it emphasizes the improvement of video capabilities, but from the experience of these days, its static image capabilities are also quite good, let’s look at it next A few proofs.

After talking about images, let’s talk about performance. Compared with the previous generation, the performance of OPPO Reno5 Pro has also been significantly improved. It is equipped with Dimensity 1000+ 5G SoC, supports SA&NSA dual-mode 5G, 5G dual-carrier aggregation, and 5GUltraSave power-saving technology. It is also the world’s first to support 5G+5G dual With the dual card dual standby and dual VoNR platforms, users can have a good experience with any 5G dual cards, without the need for the main card to use the 5G network when the main card uses the 5G network, and the secondary card can only have 4G standby.

OPPO was the first mobile phone manufacturer to embrace the MediaTek Dimensity series. Its Reno3 used Dimensity 1000L for the first time, and this machine is the only Dimensity 1000L model so far. At that time, MediaTek had just stepped out of the quagmire of long-term product failures, marketing failures, and pre-judgment errors, and restarted the high-end in the 5G era. Therefore, OPPO does have a lot of courage to be the first manufacturer to eat crabs, and it also gives the former a lot of trust.

The actual performance of the MediaTek Dimensity series is also not disappointing. Whether it is flagship, high-end, popular mid-range, all have 7nm process technology, unique 5G dual card dual standby, they can attack everywhere, high-dimensional, and low-dimensional can take advantage The basis of this. The OPPO Reno5 Pro is equipped with the flagship MediaTek Dimensity 1000+, which has achieved a comprehensive leap in performance compared to the Snapdragon 765G used in the previous generation.

MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ is based on 7nm process technology, CPU is 4+4 8-core design, large core is based on Cortex-A77, clocked at 2.6GHz, performance core is based on Cortex-A55, clocked at 2.0GHz, GPU is 9-core Mali-G77, APU 3.0 computing power is as high as 4.5TOPS, and the performance of A77 is 20% higher than that of A76. The comprehensive performance of 5G, efficiency, and AI has been widely recognized by the market.

According to the measurement standard of Geekbench 5, the performance of Dimensity 1000+ single-core is between Snapdragon 765G and Snapdragon 865, 23% more than Snapdragon 765G and only 14% lower than Snapdragon 865. In terms of multi-core, there is a clear distinction between mid-range cores and flagship cores. Snapdragon 765G falls behind Dimensity 1000+ by 33%, while Dimensity 1000+ and Snapdragon 865 are only 12% behind.

According to the evaluation system of Geekbench 5, whether it is a single core that reflects absolute performance or a multi-core test that tests scheduling coordination, Dimensity 1000+ belongs to the flagship camp, just like the Snapdragon 865.

The image performance is tested using GFXBench, and the real-machine rendering and 1080p off-screen results of several familiar projects such as Manhattan are selected as the chart above. The frame rate of the heavy-duty racing scene can also reach 35FPS or more, which can be estimated for OPPO Rneo5 Pro’s gaming performance will be better.

In terms of GPU, Dimensity 1000+ integrates 9 Mali-G77 cores, the performance is increased by 40% compared with G76, and it supports 90-frame chicken games and 120-frame racing games. Mali-G77 GPU adopts the new architecture Valhall, which is in the first echelon of current mobile GPU. In terms of GFXBench’s overall GPU graphics computing performance test results, Dimensity 1000+ is extremely close to the Snapdragon 865 (a slight gap of 5% to 12%).

Game measurement. We also used “Peace Elite” to conduct a game test. The screen setting selects the highest picture quality that the current beta firmware can open by default, “HDR HD + ultra-high frame rate (40FPS) + anti-aliasing on + shadow on”.

During the game, the performance of OPPO Reno5 Pro did not disappoint. The frame rate almost coincides with the 40FPS frame rate indication line. The frame rate of over 38FPS in the whole area accounts for over 99.5%. In the small fluctuations, the frame rate exceeds the limit of 40FPS for more time. , Obviously, there is still more. I hope that the game can open up higher quality settings as soon as possible after the official release, so that the game party can play more fun.

After 30 minutes of gaming, the highest temperature of the phone is 36.8°C on the front, the highest temperature at the back is 37.8°C, the highest temperature at the top is 37.8°C, and the highest temperature at the bottom is 28.6°C. On the whole, the left hand in the normal holding posture will have a certain thermal sensation when touching the middle frame. The rest is just warm, it seems that the performance of Reno5 Pro’s three-dimensional liquid cooling system is good.

As mentioned earlier, OPPO Rneo5 Pro is packed into a large 4350mAh battery while keeping it thin and light. This is undoubtedly an improvement in battery life. On the other hand, although the charging power is maintained at 65W Super VOOC 2.0 (Super Flash Charge), But its actual charging speed is also greatly optimized.

In terms of charging battery life. Clear the background, turn off Bluetooth, turn off GPS, and turn on Wi-Fi. I use the Bilibili client to play online pop-up videos with 20% volume and 70% brightness. Based on the monitored current data, it can be estimated that the aircraft may maintain a video battery life of about 12 hours under test conditions.

According to our actual measurement, starting from 1% of the remaining power, the Reno5 Pro’s power can be restored to 48% in only 10 minutes. The low power recovery efficiency in the first half of the process is very high. A small charge of 5 minutes can meet the needs of long-term play. The high-efficiency charging time of Reno5 Pro is also very long in the middle and second half. The charging curve does not slow down significantly until the battery is charged to 97%. It takes 27 minutes to charge to 100%, which successfully reduces the charging time to half an hour. within.

Let’s look at another measured graph. It took 25 minutes to reach 97% from 16% power. As much as 45% of the battery was charged in the first 10 minutes, and Super VOOC 2.0 is well-deserved. Under such circumstances, as a user, I no longer care about the battery life of OPPO Reno5 Pro itself. After all, at a critical moment, I only need to find a socket. After charging for 10 minutes, I can get back nearly half of the battery. This ends the worry about charging in the past. Bao or the habit of leaving a fixed charging time for the phone.

OPPO ColorOS 11 system. OPPO is no longer aware of system upgrades as it did in the past. For example, the current ColorOS 11 can already be pushed in seconds with the major version of Android 11.

OPPO Reno5 Pro is equipped with the new ColorOS 11. Compared with the previous version, its UI interface gives people a feeling of renewal. The most obvious is that the system desk and the notification bar that appear in the drop-down all adopt a new layout, especially the background of the notification bar has added ground glass special effects. The transition animation of ColorOS 11 has also become very delicate and smooth, such as opening or closing applications daily, freely retractable and follow-up, combined with the 90Hz high refresh rate screen of OPPO Reno5 Pro, it is quite silky.

The animation upgrade of ColorOS 11 is mainly in three aspects:

  1. Interruptible control animation: When the desktop application is opened and closed, the list is collapsed, and the control switch/panel is collapsed and expanded, if the operation is interrupted, there will be a corresponding animation reminder;
  2. Fast multitasking positioning: In the multitasking interface, you can quickly open the application by clicking the application icon at the bottom. 3. Global animation optimization: When there are multiple pop-up windows without operation, they will be integrated into one window, the content will fade in and out, and the height change will transition naturally.
  3. Detailed animation: The volume bar will become thicker when the volume is adjusted, and bottom/top animation prompts will appear when the volume is at the minimum and maximum; more 3D animations have been added.

The smart sidebar is a feature that OPPO ColorOS has always been well received. It supports customization of multiple applications. After turning on the smart sidebar function, you can call out the interface by sliding on the right side of the vertical screen or the left side of the horizontal screen.

The smart sidebar of ColorOS 11 provides more ways to play. In addition to basic application switching, the Breeno screen recognition shortcut entry is also included. This function is more practical with the smart sidebar. It does not cut out the interface, does not need to long press text or The picture can complete the screen recognition.

OPPO ColorOS Smart Sidebar

If you want to create an immersive and silky smooth experience on your mobile phone, in addition to the visual part we mentioned earlier, that is, the UI related to transition animation, the indispensable thing is the sense of touch, which appears as vibration on the smartphone, which is good The vibration design allows users to get a better sense of reverberation in use.

For example, OPPO ColorOS 11’s upgraded vibration feel customization is amazing: it adds a new input method multi-level vibration feel, and now it can provide different pseudo-object vibration responses according to changes in the input keyboard position. ColorOS 11 also optimizes the vibration adjustment, and provides freely adjustable vibration options for three types of ringtones/notifications/touch echo.

As the pioneer verifier of the new OPPO FDF full-dimensional portrait video technology system, Reno5 Pro is also an initial release of OPPO’s years of accumulation of beauty technology. Among them, the two engines of perceiving portrait and image quality enhancement are respectively optimized for the subject of the person and the overall picture during portrait shooting, to achieve the beauty of people and scenery, and adapt to single, multi-person, day, night, backlight, etc. The creative freedom of the scene.

As the first manufacturer to join the MediaTek Dimensity family, OPPO is quite proficient in polishing the Dimensity 1000 series. From the actual experience, the change from the Qualcomm Snapdragon track to the MediaTek Dimensity track did not affect the performance of OPPO Reno5 Pro and the particularly important static image performance. This machine may be the OV64B with the best image experience I have encountered. Main camera model.

The addition of 65W super flash charging is expected. OPPO Reno5 Pro is one of the phones with the highest charging power and fastest charging speed among the mass-produced works of Green Factory.

OPPO Reno5 Pro is the same as Reno3 and 4Pro. Its killer feature is its unique appearance, weight and feel. After the battery is 350 mAh, it still has a thickness of 7.6mm and an ultra-lightweight body of 173 grams. This is an industrial design. Extremely harsh. Compared with previous Reno series works, Reno5 Pro is more like a typical OPPO phone of pure blood.

OPPO Reno5 Pro is only one aspect of its characteristics whether it is high-value or high-performance. The comprehensive experience of the product is its strongest competitiveness. It has a thin and stylish appearance supported by crystal diamond technology, and it also has super flash charging and The long battery life of the large battery combination can not only enjoy smooth games, but also have outstanding beauty and shooting performance. Most of the user’s needs have been taken care of to varying degrees, which naturally allows everyone to have a satisfactory experience.
