2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Exquisite design - curved display along with a matching curved back panel gives the phone a premium look
  • Oppo Reno4 Pro is an extremely slim and lightweight device, making it very easy to use - it is the lightest in the Reno Series
  • The face recognition feature works extremely well, even under dim lighting
  • Large, 6.5-inch full-HD+ Super AMOLED display - it get a Gorilla Glass 5 for scratch protection - the screen has a sharp colour saturation and the brightness levels are more than enough
  • Reno 4 Pro has a 90 Hz panel and is extremely responsive and quick with respect to any changes in the content been viewed - the refresh rate and the touch sampling rate are indeed good, and aligned with the standards of the OnePlus Nord
  • The company has revamped the user interface to offer a more simplified experience with the ColorOS 7 - it now provides new themes, wallpapers, icon styles - all these improvements make a considerable difference and make ColorOS 7 stand apart from any version in the past
  • Good performance from the Snapdragon 720G - navigating the interface feels snappy, apps load quickly, and multitasking is generally a breeze - heavy games like call of Duty: Mobile and Asphalt 9: Legends run just fine too, with reasonably good graphics
  • Decent quad camera setup - a 48MP primary, 8MP ultra-wide, 2MP macro, and a 2MP depth sensor
  • Daylight photos out of main cam are really nice - you get sharpness and detail, dynamic range is plenty wide, and colour reproduction is well balanced too and you get lively output without excessive saturation
  • The ultra-wide lens is helpful to get a wider perspective and fit more in the shot (though captures weaker details)
  • The portrait shots are also pretty decent wherein you can adjust the level of blueness and even add a few fun effects
  • In low-light, the Reno4 Pro puts out decent images for its class - you do have Night mode to brighten up the shadows for you, and that it does well, highlights do get better developed too
  • The 32MP selfie camera puts out a solid selfie performance - selfie portraits come with good subject separation and pleasing, natural-looking blur
  • Good battery life with the 4000 mAh battery - easily lasts for about a day and half on average, with medium to light usage
  • Ridiculously quick 65W fast charging - it can go from 0 to 100 percent in just 30 minutes, which is insane
  • If you value a slim and light smartphone, the Reno 4 Pro can appeal to you - you also get incredibly quick charging, good battery life, and a premium-looking display
  • The design feels fresh and vibrant - phone's sleek profile is eye-catching, with a matte back glass, it is one of the nicest looking phones for the price
  • The phone looks quite flawless from the back, it features a rather flashy back cover
  • The Vivo V20 is one of the lightest around in the price segment, and at 7.38mm in thickness, it is surprisingly slim
  • The power button has a texture to give it a more distinguished feeling
  • The in-display fingerprint scanner, as well as face recognition, are quick to unlock the V20
  • The display is a gorgeous 6.44-inch AMOLED FHD+ panel which promises vibrant and life-like colours - the contrast is impressive and it also supports HDR10 for high-quality video playback
  • It gets bright enough for using the device even under harsh sunlight
  • The Vivo V20 comes with Android 11 out of the box, with Vivo's new Funtouch OS 11 - this new skin by Vivo brings several bells and whistles, and a much cleaner, simpler interface - there's an improved dark mode and tons of customisation options
  • Good performance from the Snapdragon 720G SoC - it is good enough to help you through tasks of daily use and even running multiple apps simultaneously - casual gaming is no issue and heavy games run at medium settings, which is decent
  • Good triple cameras for the price - a 64MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 2MP mono camera
  • Photos shot in bright sunny conditions turned out well - images clicked using the device generally come out with life-like colours and packing good detail
  • The Ultra-wide camera adds fun new perspectives, it can take dramatic super-wide-angle photos with lesser details than the main camera - besides, it can also take Macro shots, which come out with good detail, and you end up with a higher resolution image compared to what most dedicated macro cameras produce
  • Portraits have good edge detection and you do get the option to set the intensity of the blur effect - beautification is enabled by default which smoothens skin textures
  • Low-light camera performance is good, photos have little noise and details in brighter areas are decent - enabling Night mode improves the level of detail
  • The 44MP selfie camera is very good at what it does - daylight selfies are sharp with accurate colours and good details, there's also an Eye Autofocus option that keeps the subject in sharp focus - portrait selfies are possible and you can set the level of blur before taking a shot
  • Video recording in daylight is good, video recording tops out at 4K for the primary as well as the selfie shooter - footage shot in 4K, as well as 1080p, is stabilised (though, video shot in low light has a shimmer effect at both resolutions, which isn't good)
  • Overall, cameras are one of the highlights of the phone and they can take on any other capable camera phone at this price
  • Good battery life from the 4000 mAh battery - it can easily manage to keep the phone going on for around a day on moderate-heavy use
  • Charging is quick with the supplied 33W FlashCharge charger - it takes the V20 to 98 percent in an hour
  • If you value looks over other aspects, the Vivo V20 will appeal to you, it is well designed and feels premium to the touch - the device also offers above par photography performance, it emerges as a very good option for taking pictures and shooting videos
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The in-display fingerprint sensor is average and not very accurate
  • Oppo has compromised by using a plastic frame instead of metal, and a polymer resin instead of glass
  • The Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G might be a speedy and efficient chip for a low-cost phone, but using it here means, the Reno 4 Pro is definitely outclassed by its peers
  • The macro shots are plain and unimpressive
  • However, the Reno4 Pro feels a bit overpriced due to its choice of SOC and cameras that aren't the best in class - there are better phones available like the OnePlus 7T at this price
  • Because of its slim profile, the Vivo V20 is a bit slippery
  • Though, it isn't a high-refresh-rate panel
  • However, this isn't the best performing phone at the price, there are better options available like the OnePlus Nord
  • However, if heavy-duty gaming is what you're looking for, alternatives such as the OnePlus Nord offer significantly better performance, you can also consider the Galaxy M51 for its insane battery life powered by a 7000 mAh battery
