About the Phone
Oppo Reno 2Z looks impressive. It has a few pros and cons:
- Oppo Reno 2Z has a premium design and can comfortably fit in your palms.
- The phone has a Super AMOLED screen with a vibrant display.
- The phone comes with a good processor that can handle many apps without a problem.
- The phone has a 4000 mAh battery which can keep the phone chugging for a long time.
- Oppo Reno 2Z arrives with a wonderful camera set, but it does not shoot impressive photos.
Oppo Reno 2Z has most of the things going in favour of it – a good-looking camera module, an impressive design, and a great processing speed. However, the photos clicked by this phone is not very impressive. Hence, it cannot be put under the ‘all-rounder’ tag.
Oppo Reno 2Z will attract you with its looks when you enter the store. Priced at Rs. 29,990, the phone arrives with a great design, capable processor and an immersive display.
However, the Oppo Reno 2Z fails to deliver with its poor photography skills and hence, makes it a difficult set to be dubbed as an all-rounder. However, the phone can satisfy your other needs and can be a good handset to carry if you are looking for a power-packer.
The Oppo Reno 2Z looks similar to the Reno 2. Reno 2 itself has a premium design, and so, Reno 2Z will keep you satisfied. However, the one thing cut off from the design is the shark-fin pop-up camera. Reno 2Z also arrives with a pop-up camera, but it is a regular boxy camera which lights up when activated. It is comfortable to hold, and the curved glass panel on the back does dig into your palm. The phone comes with a glossy panel as well which looks quite attractive. On the back, it has a camera module which sits flush with the back panel. There is only a small O-dot bump which helps lift the rear panel so that it does not touch the surface and scratch the camera. It has a headphone jack and a USB Type-C port too.
The Reno 2Z gives you a massive 6.53-inch Super AMOLED display which is almost bezel-free. Hence, it can give you that immersive experience that most premium phones offer. It is a Full HD+ display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The chin, however, is a bit thicker than the Reno 2. The colours are quite attractive and make the display looks rich. The AMOLED screen keeps the colours deep and well-saturated. The phone also has a snappy in-display optical fingerprint scanner.
Oppo Reno 2Z gets its power from the MediaTek Helio P90 chipset. It is coupled with 8GB RAM. The Helio P90 chipset is a recent processor and competes with the mid-range Snapdragon 710. It is a capable processor and can handle multiple apps simultaneously without slowing down. The phone can also handle games at medium to high settings without frame drops.
Reno 2Z’s USP is the 48MP quad-camera module at the back. It has the same primary camera as the Reno 2 – a whopping 48 MP primary lens with EIS support. However, it does not have a telephoto lens. The phone has a supporting 2MP depth-sensing camera, an 8MP wide-angle camera, and a 2MP mono lens. There are several competitors which offer various modes of shooting photos similar to Reno 2Z. The phone turns out okay in daylight, but there is a bit of grain attached to the images. Plus, the images seem to have boosted exposure leading to washing out of the details. The camera is impressive, and the photos are okay, though it may not match up with the superior quality put out by its competitors.
Reno 2Z arrives with a 4,000 mAh battery pack. It is a regular battery pack and can keep the phone chugging for a whole day. The phone also supports VOOC 3.0 fast charging, which can charge up the phone within 80 minutes from 0 to 100%.
Oppo Reno 2Z has the stunning looks of Reno 2 and comes with all the good things of Reno 2 – a great display, a good processor and a regular battery with fast charging. The camera is a delight too, though it may not impress hard-core photographers. The photos carry a bit of grain and look lackluster, making them not a fascinating one, but rather a passable one. If you are going for photography, Reno 2Z may not be the right way to go. However, for reliable performance, Oppo Reno 2Z can be a marvellous handset to go for.
