The Oppo Reno series is known for being camera-centric, and the Oppo Reno7 5G is no different. The phone delivers great camera performance. On the rear, it has a 64 MP wide-angle, 8 MP ultrawide, and 2 MP macro sensor camera. Camera features include LED flash, HDR, panorama, and gyro-EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization). For selfies and video calls, the device features a 32 MP wide-angle camera on the front, which can record videos in 1080p@30fps. In comparison, the rear camera setup can capture videos in 1080p@30/60/120fps and 4K@30fps.
The phone is priced at ₹28,999 which is approximately $388. It comes in a single configuration of 8 GB RAM and 256 GB of internal storage. The RAM and memory type used here is LPDDR4X RAM and UFS 2.2. The phone has a dedicated card slot, which is often absent in higher mid-range phones. Besides an SD card, the phone can accommodate dual Nano-SIM cards. It supports 5G connections, which is evident from its name itself. Additionally, the Oppo Reno7 5G can handle 2G, 3G, and 4G connections.
For color, there are two options, Stary Black and Startrails Blue and both look great. The phone’s back has a matte finish that doesn’t attract fingerprints easily. This is a major advantage of owning Oppo Reno7 5G. What’s also a benefit is the phone weight, at just 173 grams. Coming to the dimensions, it measures 6.32 by 2.88 by 0.31 inches. Needless to say, the phone has a solid build quality. The phone has a 6.43-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
It has a screen-to-body ratio of 84.9% and an impressive PPI (pixels per inch) density of 409. Looking at the specs, and the fact that it’s got support for HDR10+, the multimedia experience should be good. What limits the experience is the absence of stereo speakers. On the positive side, the Oppo Reno7 5G has a 3.5 mm headphone jack. As for the software, the device runs Android 11 with ColorOS 12 on top. The phone does have bloatware, but you can uninstall most of the unnecessary apps. The overall performance delivered by the MediaTek MT6877 Dimensity 900 5G processor is decent.
However, you can get phones that perform better at similar prices. The Mali-G68 MC4 GPU handles the gaming performance on the other end. For communication, the phone has Wi-Fi dual-band, Wi-Fi Direct, hotspot, Bluetooth 5.2, USB Type-C 2.0, USB On-The-Go, and GPS. The device lacks FM Radio but has support for NFC.

If you are an average user, Oppo Reno7 5G should last you for almost one and a half days. What’s truly exciting is that the phone can go from 0 to 100% of charge in just 31 minutes, as per the ads. As for the sensors, the phone has an accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, and an under-display fingerprint sensor.
