A Walk Through OPPO Reno 3, Is It Worth The Cash?

Where can you start looking for your perfect phone?

The world seems to have changed. The new norm has set in and people are being forced to adjust. In the current world, one either shape in or shape out.

Governments around the world, including Kenya, are calling on citizens to try as much as possible to stay and work from home. The traditional office is slowly being faced out, coupled with lockdowns and curfews.

If there is something that this pandemic has changed is how people do business; buying and selling. People are increasingly turning to online platforms to buy and sell their products and services, including phones.

The best place to start looking for your phone, therefore, is through online platforms. Online, you will get reviews of different phones, feedback, and experiences of those who have used whatever model you might be looking for.

What should you focus on when looking for your dream phone?

Storage: A good phone is about space. In the current world, people no longer talk about MBs while looking for a phone in terms of space but about GBs. How much can your phone store? You don’t want to buy something that will tell you running low on memory as soon as your phone receives a message.

Camera: Camera is everything on a phone in the current world. Look for a phone that will take some of your best pictures and selfies, giving you the real feel of the surrounding without you having to struggle to identify an object.

Color: A good phone is about its beauty, its appearance. Get a phone that matches the colors you like and love. The majority of people looking for phones often prefer the color black.

The weight and size: Your phone should be big enough to fit in your hand and small enough to feet in your pocket. It should also be light to enable you to move around with it without feeling it.

The Reno 3 World

The OPPO Reno3 is one of the headline smartphones on OPPO’s flagship category, the Reno Series. It has the power and specs of the top-range phone, but at an affordable price in the market compared to competitors with almost similar specs.

The new Reno-series phone comes with a water-drop-style display and houses a quad rear camera setup that gives whoever purchases it a sense of ownership. OPPO is actually known worldwide because of the amazing camera display that their phones come with, just like Oppo Reno 3.

The smartphone also has a gradient back design that comes in two distinct color options. The Reno 3 also supports 5x hybrid zoom and 20x digital zoom. It also comes preloaded with features such as Ultra Steady Video 2.0, AI Beauty Video, Video Bokeh, and Sloop.

The phone comes with the dimensions of 158.8 by 73.4 by 8.1 millimeters. Wide enough to fit in your hand and small enough to be comfortable in your pocket. Worried about the weight? Relax. It weighs just 175 grams. There’s a huge 4025mAh battery with 30W fast charging – which is good.

The body of this phone is something to behold. You never want to take your eyes off it. It comes with a glass front (Gorilla Glass 5), plastic back, plastic frame with a dual sim provision. It also comes with a Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 16m colors that is 6.4 inches, 101.8 centimeters (squared). The phone comes with a resolution of 1080 by 2400 pixels.

The dual-SIM (Nano) Oppo Reno 3 runs Android 10 with ColorOS 7 on top and features a 6.4-inch full-HD+ (1080×2400 pixels) display with a 20:9 aspect ratio and 90.8 percent screen-to-body ratio.

Under the hood, the phone has the MediaTek Helio P90 (MT6779V) SoC, coupled with 8GB of RAM. There is a quad rear camera setup that includes a 48-megapixel primary sensor with an f/1.8 lens, 13-megapixel secondary sensor with a telephoto f/2.4 lens, 8-megapixel tertiary sensor with a wide-angle f/2.2 lens, and a 2-megapixel monochrome sensor with an f/2.4 lens.

The beauty of a phone is its storage capacity. For those who are worried about their phones handling huge and heavy files, then OPPO Reno3 is your type of phone. It comes with a micro SD dedicated slot. It has an internal space of 128 GB, a RAM 8 GB.

I know I have talked about the camera but let me amplify it a little. The camera is the next big thing with the Reno 3, carrying the promise of delivering ‘Clarity in Every Shot’. The Rear Camera comes with a 48 MP and f/1.8 aperture main camera, a 13 MP, f/2.4 aperture telephoto lens, an 8 MP, f/2.2 aperture ultrawide lens and a 2 MP black and white, f/2.4 aperture mono lens.

The phone comes with a first of its kind 44MP Front Camera with Ultra Night Selfie Mode. For the first time, OPPO has added Ultra Night Mode algorithm in the front camera, guaranteeing clarity and brightness in dim light.

Is the Oppo Reno 3 worth it? Yes.
