In making visual content both photos and videos, now the determinants of a smartphone camera can be said to be good or less, no longer just the quality of the photo. But what features present complement the availability of a variety of camera sensors he carried. Present the latest offer, Oppo Reno 6 appeared stylish, while carrying an impressive camera feature.

DNA Reno Series has been built and is very attached to each of them, where Reno devices are certain to have a present design, equipped with complete camera features, and also do not rule out other features such as gaming, for example. Consumers do not have to choose to sacrifice certain parts, because almost all parts have good value.

So did Oppo Reno 6 bring enough differentiation, to attract consumer interest in the middle-class smartphone segment? Yes, but not for a group of certain groups. Here's the full review of Oppo Reno 6.

Design

Similar but not the same, a fitting sentence to describe the overall OPPO RENO 6 design. What looks different from the eye view is the color combination and the design of the camera module. The rest is more or less the same, has a curved back body on both sides.

With a thickness of 7.8mm for the two color options, Oppo Reno 6 weights 2 grams heavier than the previous generation, which is 173 grams. This is thanks to the more enhanced OPPO Reno Glow coloring technique - now able to email around 1 million colors for the Aurora variant.

The color change is now more gentle following a light source around, the plus is now smoother without the glitter effect or the dominant white spot like on RENO 5. And for the first time, Reno Glow's technique was also taken to the dark color option, called Stellar Black.

Both of them use the surface that doffs aka matte, so it's always clean even though it's used without a case. But for those of you who often sweat, the body surface of Oppo Reno 6 is relatively slippery. The rest is very fun to be held or tucked into pants.

Screen

Carrying a thin bezel on the third side of the screen (except the lower part a slightly thicker), Oppo Reno 6 has a screen dimension that is very fitting at 6.4 inches. Right for watching Netflix content, and still comfortable to hold one hand. The panel is of high quality, using AMOLED with IN-Display Fingerprint Responsified sensors, 90Hz Refresh Rate, and 180Hz Touch Sampling Rate.

Want to watch videos from HD-quality streaming platforms? Can. And for eye health, it is certified with SGS Eye Care Display. The dimensions of the punch-hole front camera are very small, do not distribute content. And for color accuracy, can choose the standard P3 or SRGB according to taste.

This screen was designed to be flat, and when the official Oppo was asked about screen protection, it was not mentioned by its name or type, even though they could ensure that there was protection on the front screen and the back body. So if you want more protection, just use the screen guard layer that is stuck since the beginning.

Camera

Not only the design of the camera module is different, the sensor used is different. In the back body, there are three equal sequential sensors from top to bottom; 8MP ultra-wide angle f / 2.2, 64MP Wide-angle f / 1.7 with OmniVision sensor and 6p lens, and 2MP F / 2.4 macro camera. One more sensor is pinned next to the LED light, a 2MP mono camera type.

To be honest, I was skeptical when he found out about the use of OmniVision sensors. But after trying out Oppo Reno 6 to capture the moment in the past few days, I could say at least, or even a little better than the Reno 5 series. Able to be relied upon in various lighting conditions.

It's just that, when taking photos with night mode, the duration is needed for a long time for up to 5 seconds, however, the lighting conditions are. While the ultra-wide-angle sensor can provide enough color reproduction of a draw, with some noise that is still very acceptable.

Portrait mode Unfortunately is still limited to the 4: 3 ratio, as well as the video recording that cannot move from the main sensor to Ultra-Wide. Regarding the video, Oppo Reno 6 can record until 4K resolution 30fps. Three interesting features are just taken to this latest series.

AI Highlight Video is claimed to have a better effect to provide HDR capabilities when recording moments in extreme lighting situations, plus ultra night algorithms when the camera detects fewer light sources. Plus, portrait beautification videos can increase the appearance of the subject in real-time videos.

The most significant and interesting is a portrait flare bokeh, a portrait filter available both in photo and video modes. If previously Oppo Reno 5 only has a Night Flare Portrait, this latest effect can be used in daytime conditions. Suitable for views with lots of backlight behind the subject.

When recording video with this one filter effect, users will be able to see the results directly and in real-time. A separation between subjects is very good, even the camera can still recognize the back of the body. Generate videos that are far more attractive, as they are captured from professional cameras with large sensors and diaphragms.

Which needs to be a note, the video resolution will drop to 720p 30fps when the portrait flare is activated. While the 44MP front camera which was brought had good quality with the previous series. The point of view is very wide and bright enough to do video recording even though the night conditions.

Feature

Just like the Flagship Line Oppo Find X3 Pro 5G, OPPO RENO 6 is certainly present brings the latest version of Android 11.1 based on Android 11. There are some interesting features that it carries - one of the most frequently I access lately is the O Relax application (formerly known as Oppo Relax).

This application is present quite simple. Play a role in giving background music or white noise. Starting from the sound of coastal waves, the sound of the forest, to special music designed by Oppo with Bang & Olufsen. Suitable for accompanying work because it can make you more relaxed and focused, it feels like being outdoors.

Even though the front camera is only one, Oppo Reno 6 can provide gesture water support, where you can lift the phone only with hand gestures, suitable when hands are dirty for example. Plus anti-peeping automatically hides notifications when the camera detects someone else is peeking.

NFC is certainly present for the ease of the E-Money card top-up. In the audio sector, the quality of speakers which is unfortunately still mono can still be understandable, because Oppo still carries a 3.5mm audio jack when some competitors require a special adapter from USB-C.

Performance

From Reno 4 until now Reno 6, OPPO still entrusted the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G chipset to give power to all new camera features that now also process video content. When asked the reason, Oppo said if they prefer to optimize the chipset.

CIP from Snapdragon is considered to have good AI skills, so features like bokeh flare portrait videos can be implemented. For everyday use, there are no problems. Feels responsive both open the application to multitasking. It's just that, yes, it doesn't support 5G, of course.

Does it feel more speeding than before? You could say yes. Because even though the chipset is the same, Oppo Reno 6 is equipped with a new technology called RAM Expansion. Utilizing parts of unused 128GB UFS 2.1 storage, users can allocate 2 - 5GB to become virtual RAM. So the total can be up to 13GB.

Using playing games can still and smoothly, as long as you don't expect to use the highest visual option when running heavy multiplayer games. Access to GIM can be shorter thanks to the Quick Startup feature. Can identify favorite games, automatically making games run in the background. So when opened, it can start games faster.

Battery

Still the same as the previous generation, Oppo Reno 6 is equipped with a 4,310 mAh capacity battery, the size that can be understood considering the thin smartphone dimensions. With the same screen specifications and efficient processors, even though it is also still 11-12. In the sense, it is still very safe for a day of use.

At least it can still be used from morning to night, with a screen-on time of 4-5 hours, already by activating the Always-on display and other sensors such as Bluetooth and NFC. If you want to be made more efficient, it can really. Because Colors 11 provides many extra options, start standard and extreme power saving modes, until other options such as Super NightTime standby so the device remains on the morning the next day.

Interestingly, Oppo can provide faster power speed even though hardware specifications are still the same. Passing 50W Flash Charge, filling up to full it takes 45 minutes, aka 3 minutes shorter than Reno5. Compatationalities with other fast charging are also present, supporting up to 15W via Quickcharge 2.0 & Power Delivery.
