OPPO Reno2 F Review: Amazing Quad Cameras, Panoramic Display, Affordable Price!

With 4 cameras, full-view Panoramic display, fast charging and an affordable price, the OPPO Reno2 F will become a better choice compared to the Reno2.

OPPO already announced its OPPO Reno2 and Reno2 F in India. While the Reno2 is a high-end offering, the Reno2 F will be an upper mid-range variant with a more affordable price. This is considered a compact variant of Reno2 with similar features, and good price for young, and dynamic users.

First, the box of the Reno2 F remains unchanged with a long, and unique design. Inside the box will be an earphone, a Type-C charger cable, a 20W fast charger, a plastic case, an ejector tool and a manual.

In terms of design, the Reno2 F has a similar design to the premium Reno 2. Its camera cluster, LED flash, OPPO logo, the text "Designed for Reno" are all set into a balanced and harmonious sequence in the center.

Regarding the camera position, the Reno2 F will be a little different from Reno2. If you pay close attention, 4 cameras are separated, of which 3 cameras are neatly put at the top and 1 camera is placed separately. I think this is how OPPO can distinguish between Reno2 and Reno2 F when the Reno2 cameras are all put together in a module.

The camera cut-out is brought down and the sensors are moved to the top.

The Reno2 F body is covered with a plastic frame, glossy glass and attractive lines. Thanks to this design, the back has a unique gradient effect. The device will have 2 color options including Sky White and Lake Green.

4
The right side has a SIM tray, and a power button with LED light that can activate Google Assistant.

Overall, compared to the solid metal frame of Reno2, Reno2 F has a slight downgrade with a plastic frame. However, thanks to the delicate curved dual-sided design, the Reno2 F still makes it easy and comfortable to hold.

The front is also the highlight of the Reno lineup as it is a full-screen Panoramic display with no notch and cut-out. Specifically, the device sports a 6.5-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with a 19.5: 9 aspect ratio and a Gorilla Glass 5 layer. The phone has a contrast of 60,000: 1 and the screen brightness of 430 nits, which helps it have good display capability.

Full-view Panoramic display with no notch or cut-out.

The screen has a screen-to-body ratio of 91.1% with quite thin edges, bringing a better experience when watching videos and playing heavy games with no notch. Additionally, the phone also comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor, helping to unlock the phone quickly and conveniently.

Impressive in-display optical fingerprint sensor.

OPPO has always been one of the brands that offer the best user experience, so despite the budget price, the Reno2 F still features 4 cameras like the Reno2. Though its camera setup cannot be good as that of the Reno 2, this is still an impressive camera module.

8

Quad cameras include a 48MP primary sensor with f/1.7 aperture, an 8MP super wide-angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture, a 2MP monochrome sensor with f/2.4 aperture and a 2MP depth sensor with f/2.4 aperture. Each camera will have certain tasks, helping users unleash creativity with many different modes of shooting.

Regarding the selfie camera, the Reno2 F does not keep the "shark fin" design as the Reno2, instead, it features the pop-up sensor like the F11 Pro. The camera has a resolution of 16MP and an aperture of f/2.0 and a light when rising.

The sensor is also used for face recognition with the fast speed, regardless of the lighting conditions.

9

Regarding the configuration, the device ships with an Helio P70 chipset, coupled with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. With this chipset, the device can still smoothly perform multi-tasks, even heavy games like PUBG Mobile.

Last, the phone is packed with a big 4,000mAh battery with support for the 20W VOOC 3.0 fast charging tech via USB Type-C cable. According to OPPO, this charger can help the device quickly charge the battery in 70 minutes. OPPO Reno2 F will run on Android 9 Pie-based ColorOS 6.1.

10
The bottom edge has a USB Type-C port, external speaker, microphone and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Final thoughts

11

With such a budget price, we have to accept some trade-ins on build materials, performance and many other features. However, the Reno2 F still has a beautiful design, 4 cameras, Panoramic Full-View display and a pop-up selfie camera like the F11 Pro.
