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 Vivo X50 is a breath of fresh air, bringing a sexy, luxurious design - the soft satin finish of the glass back with a classy matte metallic hue gives it a unique and amiable look
  • It is one of the few Android phones that is somewhat compact and relatively light-weight at this price
  • The under-display fingerprint scanner is fast and accurate for the most part and there's also Face Unlock that works well
  • Very good 6.5-inch AMOLED FHD+ screen, which looks pretty good - the colours are punchy, saturated and viewing content on it is a delight
  • The display have all the bells and whistles here including a 90Hz refresh rate, 180Hz response rate, HDR10+ support and up to 1300 nits peak brightness
  • Good performance with the new Snapdragon 730 - the Vivo X50 dashes through everything you throw at it, for day to day use, you should have no issues whatsoever and Heavy 3D games like PUBG Mobile runs smoothly
  • Very good quad camera setup - a primary gimbal 48MP sensor, a 13MP portrait zoom lens, an 8MP ultra-wide and an 5MP macro camera
  • In daylight everything looks generally pleasing including sharp, detailed shots with good colours - close-ups look excellent too, with sharp details and generous background bokeh
  • The ultra-wide camera gets you that extra-wide perspective on the world - it adds a little extra fun to the functionality with the macro mode and can take sharp and detailed close-ups - this pretty much renders the dedicated macro camera obsolete
  • Portrait shots of people and objects generally look good - you can adjust the level of background blur, and add beauty effects and filters
  • The front-facing 32MP camera does a good job - the portrait mode works well, filters, Beauty and other usual features are also present
  • Overall, this is one of the more exciting camera setups at this price and Vivo isn't playing a numbers game, each camera has different functionality that adds to the overall versatility of the cameras
  • Good loudspeaker performance - the output is loud and clear with very little distortion in the bass at full volume
  • Good battery life with the 4200 mAh cell - it will easily last a full day on a single charge with 90 Hz display on moderate use
  • Very good fast charging with the 33W Flash Charger - it can fill up the battery in about 80 minutes
  • The Vivo X50 is a pretty solid all-rounder - it looks stylish, is built well, and has good cameras, battery life and the AMOLED display are also some of its strong suits (though, the software might be an eyesore to a lot of users, it also feels a little underpowered for the price)
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
  • As with all previous Vivo phones, the software experience continues to be the pain point, it has barely improved over the last few years - this wouldn’t have been as big a deal if it were another one of Vivo’s budget smartphones, but consumers expect an ad-free, no-frills affair in the premium segment, that the X50 Pro is lacking
  • The Snapdragon 730 is a good processor, but for a phone at this price the Vivo X50 feels a little underpowered
  • There’s no headphone jack and you will have to invest in some good Bluetooth headsets if you want to charge your phone and listen to music simultaneously
  • For the price, the Vivo X50 is a little underpowered compared to phones such as the Realme X2 Pro and OnePlus 7T, which both have flagship-level SoCs - while this shouldn't hamper day-to-day performance, it could prevent certain high-end games from running at their full potential
