Oppo Reno 7 Z 5G is a decent mid-range phone all-around, but it does have some unique advantages.

It has a 4500 mAh Li-Po removable battery which lasts for a day on average use. That’s not all though, as the phone supports reverse charging and USB Power Delivery, as well.
In the communication department, the device has USB Type-C 2.0, USB On-The-Go, NFC, GPS, Bluetooth 5.2, dual-band Wi-Fi, and a Hotspot. Coming to cameras, the phone’s overall performance is decent but the main 64 MP wide-angle camera delivers stunning results.
