OPPO Reno 6 5G: (12GB RAM, 256GB storage) about specifications, price & reviews

Oppo Reno 6 5G

Today’s unboxing video is very interesting & you’ll know, after watching the video. This is OPPO Reno6 5G. We have already unboxed the OPPO Reno6 Pro 5G. But this one, compared to the Pro version, seems more value for money. I’ll tell you more about it. Contents - You get documentation & a case with a sim card tool. There’s something interesting about the case so let's see if you can guess it the comments. You get a 65W fast charger, USB Type C wired earphones & a USB Type C cable. Let’s keep this all aside & we’ll look at the phone now.There’s Reno Glow design just like the Pro, but interestingly the sides are metallic & flat. The Pro was completely curved but this is completely flat & hence it’s called Retro Design. It reminds me of another phone when I hold it. (Guess the name in the comments) It looks premium & in-hand feel is also good. It’s not big & it’s perfect for average hands.It’s very light & must be around 180g as it’s metal. I was completely wrong about the Pro. And this weighs 185g.Let’s put on its case. And I asked about the case as I wanted you to see its flat sides.The case fits well & is of good quality so it shouldn’t be a problem. [Drop Test] Oh! It fell sideways.Many people ask me what happens if it breaks? If it does, then there’s no point in unboxing.Ports & Buttons - Below, there’s a speaker grill, a Type C port, a microphone & a sim card tray.On the left, there are volume buttons(up & down) with antenna lines as it’s a metal frame.Above, there’s a noise cancelling microphone. On the right, there’s a power (on/off) button, with a green tinge just like the Pro.I’m impressed with it’s looks, now let’s look at its software & other specifications. Have you “like”d the video yet?Display - It’s lovely & a flat 6.43” AMOLED display with 90Hz fast refresh rate & Gorilla Glass 5 protection.There’s Gorilla Glass on front & AG Glass on the back, so it’s a metal-glass sandwiched design.It also has HDR 10+ support with a 91.7% screen-to-body ratio.It has small & thin bezels on the top & sides, and the chin is smaller than average.With 90Hz fast refresh rate, it has a 180Hz touch sampling rate too & a peak brightness of 800 nits.Specifications - It’s the first phone in India with a MediaTek Dimensity 900 5G processor.It’s based on the 6Nm architecture which is quite battery efficient.It has only 1 variant with 8GB RAM (LPDDR4X) & 128GB storage(UFS 2.1). It has a 4300mAh battery which is slightly less compared to Pro. It has a 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 charger.OPPO claims that it can charge up from 0-100% in just 28 minutes.So 4300mAh is slightly low & 4500mAh would’ve been better, but the fast charging makes it up.

Performance - On paper, the AnTuTu scores are above 4.2L, which is quite good.If you look at 1-2 year old Qualcomm 8-series chipsets, they had similar scores of around 4.5L. And being a new phone, it can be optimized further with software updates.You can play games with medium-high settings & probably with HDR soon.With the 90Hz refresh rate & 180Hz touch sampling rate, we found the gameplay very smooth.Even for daily usage it’s good with fast refresh rate & super optimized ColorOS 11.3, which I like.So the combination of hardware & software is very good, you’ll enjoy it for daily use.With ColorOS 11.3, you get features like customizable AOD, free form screenshot with granular control etc.Camera - The Bokeh Flair Video is available, like the Pro, there’s AI Highlight Video mode, and other features are also present. It has a triple camera setup (64MP+8MP+2MP) unlike the Pro(quad camera setup).On the front, you get a 32MP punch-hole selfie camera sensor. [Sample Snapshots] We haven’t tested them much, but do let us know about its photo quality in the comments.Sensors - You get all sensors. It has an in-display fingerprint scanner with face unlock that works well.Connectivity - It’s a 5G chipset. In the Pro, you have 11 band support & we are trying to find out about this one. In the Chinese variant there are 7 bands supported, so it must be similar(7/11 bands).It has WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, Dual 4G VoLTE, WiFi Calling & NFC connectivity. Other Features - It has Camera2API support & Widevine L1 support for HD streaming.There’s no notification light/FM Radio & the SAR values are within limits. And no 3.5mm jack as well.Multimedia - It has a big, beautiful & immersive AMOLED screen with good viewing angles.It has good quality mono speakers & the overall multimedia experience will be good.There’s an extra feature, it has virtual RAM which can be expanded up to 5GB. But it isn’t actual RAM.I said it’s interesting at the start, because the Pro is priced at Rs 39,999 & this is priced at Rs 29,999. And there are certain things that aren't available on the Pro, but on this one. Like, the flat metal frame.And in terms of OS/UI & all other features it’s equivalent to the Pro.Overall, at this price OPPO Reno6 5G is better value for money than OPPO Reno6 Pro 5G. Do let us know what you think along with questions about this phone in the comments.
