Oppo Reno 2F
Oppo’s Reno Series features a separate line of Oppo Reno 2 phones, also Oppo Reno 2 Series. It has three phone now as at the time of this review of one of its members. These three are Oppo Reno 2, Oppo Reno 2Z and Oppo Reno 2F. If there is anything Oppo is best known for besides its exceptional cameras, it is marketing their smartphones.
By now, courtesy of Oppo you must have heard about Oppo Reno 2F or seen it in one of your timelines. But it that is not the case then be on the know, you are in now in reliable hands. We are always the first to tell you about new releases in our most trusted reviews. And this time, we present Oppo Reno 2F to you. Be sure to read and find out why it has features in tech headlines.
I would wish to rush things and begin telling you about the camera performance of Oppo Reno 2F. But in truth there is more to this phone than just the cameras. Such are the design, its performance, its battery you name it. But if you wish to know about the cameras before all other things then feel free to scroll to that subheading. After its release in October 2019, Oppo Reno immediately fell into our hands. Even now if you wish to have it you can order for it from our website and it will be in your hands too before you know it. Below is what it is all about.
After the rumors about Google team poaching Oppo’s design team most Oppo fans and followers were worried. It was a rumor we are not confirming or denying anything – for us facts are what matter. Here is a one fact. Whether the rumor was true or not we know that Oppo Reno 2F is a work of art, a beauty to behold and a phone with an eye catching design. Who designs these phones man? See if you are the kind of persons who falls in love with a phone because of first, its looks, then once more prepare to be blown away by Oppo Reno 2F’s craftsmanship.
Oppo Reno2F’s Twilight Mist finish takes influence from the mesmerizing beauty of nature says Oppo. Its sophisticated combine with neon detail for an iridescent color that shifts in different light angles. The colors I am talking of here are Nebula Green (which is purple-ish), Sky White and Lake Green. The signature centralized arrangement and vertical orientation of all things on the back panel has been maintained on Oppo Reno 2F. On that very Corning Gorilla Glass 5 back panel is Oppo branding and a inscription to remind you that this phone was Designed for RENO.
What makes Oppo Reno Series stand out is the simple (yet not for other brands) fact that there are no notches or cut out displays. How do you achieve a 91.1% screen-to-body ratio we ask? You reply, by buying an Oppo Reno 2F. That is right. Because this phone has a pop up camera lens (remember this as part of the design) there will be no distractions whatsoever on the display in the name of a notch. More about this pop up later. Underneath Oppo Reno 2F’s display panel is a hidden optical fingerprint scanner.
Oppo Reno 2F’s AMOLED capacitive touchscreen has a 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution and 394 ppi density. You do not have to read that again, it is an AMOLED panel as already said. This phone just gets better and better yet the best is yet to come. I think it is important I also let you know that its display is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Friend, where else can you get such a durable display on a phone? Our time to answer – on our website if you look well. Our reviews reveal the hidden features of smartphones. Be sure to diligently read them.
Very fast let me just list all the cameras Oppo Reno 2F has. The ones on the back panel are these: 48 MP, f/1.7, 26mm (wide), 8 MP, f/2.2, 13mm (ultra wide), 2 MP B/W and a 2 MP, f/2.4, 1/5″, 1.75µm, depth sensor while the selfie pop up is a motorized pop-up 16 MP, f/2.0, 26mm (wide), 1/3.1″, 1.0µm. I mentioned I will tell you more about this pop up.
The information I carried forward it that it has free fall protection which helps it sense when your phone is dropped to promptly retract it. It also has colorful indicator lights which provide an atmospheric countdown timer for selfies and flash slowly while the camera swivels out and in. About its performance, I’ll let its resolution speak for itself. But I think we all know who the selfie expert is – Oppo.
Camera performance of Oppo Reno 2F merits all the praise it is receiving this far. Its users love it, Oppo loves it, we love it and I think everybody generally love it. It is equipped with a powerful night mode. Oppo says it is the most powerful night mode but we refuse to match behind such tall claims.
It is powerful alright but let’s preserve the awards for when the right time comes. It also has fair Portrait and Bokeh Modes, HDR Portraits and an all new (for this line) AI Beauty Mode. However, there is no support for 4K video receiving here. If you care about 4K or know what it it is then, we would have you know that video recording with Oppo Reno 2F is 1080p@30fps.
Turning our focus on the performance, what makes Oppo Reno 2F admirable is its 128GB + 8GB RAM storage and memory respectively. I mean what can’t 8GB of RAM do for a phone? And this is just what you will get here. Internal storage can be expanded using a micro SD up to 256 GB. It runs Android 9.0 (Pie) with ColorOS 6.1 skin, has a Mediatek MT6771V Helio P70 (12nm) chipset and an Octa-core (4×2.1 GHz Cortex-A73 & 4×2.0 GHz Cortex-A53) CPU.
What else you will love about this phone is its non-removable Li-Po 4000 mAh battery. You will love how long it lasts and its fast battery charging 20W (VOOC Flash Charge 3.0) which gives up to 51% charge in as little as 30 minutes.
