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
  • Charming, fresh rear design - the Realme 7 Pro features a mirror-split design, which creates some interesting patterns when light hits it
  • The front now has a single camera which sits to the top-left of the phone and looks sleek
  • Even though it uses plastic for the frame, the Realme 7 Pro feels well-built and sturdy
  • The in-display fingerprint sensor works well, and face recognition is equally quick
  • The Realme 7 Pro is slimmer (8.7mm) and lighter (182g), compared to the Realme 6 Pro - makes it a lot more comfortable to hold and use
  • Punchy, vivid AMOLED 6.4 inches panel - it is bright, colours are rich, and thanks to this type of panel, the 7 Pro has an always-on display mode
  • Software on the Realme phones is much improved since the company switched to Realme UI, it is easy to use - it is also packed with features such as Digital Wellbeing, Focus Mode, Dark Mode, and Riding Mode among others - there are some exciting and useful features like Realme Dual-Mode Audio, which allows you to connect a Bluetooth and a wired headset at the same time to listen to music on the smartphone
  • Excellent performance for the price - the Realme 7 Pro gets to keep the same SOC as the 6 Pro, the Snapdragon 720G is a powerful chip, so as expected, general usage and multitasking is handled superbly - gaming performance is nothing to scoff at, the phone handles heavy games like PUBG mobile with ease
  • Good quad cameras at the back - the main unit boasts a 64MP sensor, with an 8MP ultra-wide lens, a 2MP micro and a 2MP depth sensor - Realme has upgraded the main sensor with a Sony sensor instead of a Samsung sensor on the Realme 6, everything else remains the same
  • The daylight photos from the main sensor preserve the natural colour and have good exposure - it exhibits improved dynamic range, with better details compared to the Realme 6 - the new sensor is slightly better than the old one in the Realme 6
  • The ultra-wide camera captures a wider perspective but details and colours are weaker compared to the main sensor as expected
  • Portrait shots generally look good, and you get the option to adjust the background blur before shooting
  • Low light photos look cleaner too, with less grain - shots captured using Night mode look more pleasing, compared to what the Realme 6 can produce
  • The 16MP camera can take decent selfies - The selfie portrait mode is useful as it manages to correctly crop out the background, and there's also Night mode for bright selfies even in the dark
  • Video rec. is decent, you have the option to rec. up to 4K without stabilisation - there's also Ultra Steady mode which offers great stabilisation but videos look a bit soft - ultra-wide camera videos are stabilised but less detailed, the resolution is limited to 1080p
  • Overall, the cameras on the Realme 7 are a bit improved than the previous gen, which always a good thing
  • The Realme 7 Pro boasts a stereo speaker setup - the stereo effect is good, as the earpiece gets almost as loud as the bottom-firing speaker, and Dolby Atmos helps boost the volume and audio fidelity
  • Very good battery life from the 4500 mAh battery - even with medium to heavy usage, it will get you a day and half of runtime on one charge
  • 65W SuperDart Charge fast charging is best in class and takes just about 40 mins to fill up the phone
  • Realme has done a fairly good job in crafting the 7 Pro - it brings some meaningful upgrades to the Realme 6 Pro in the form of an AMOLED screen, stereo speakers, and much faster charging
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
  • Realme downgraded the display in terms of refresh rate and it's a 60 Hz display
  • There are still several pre-loaded apps however (though most of these can thankfully be uninstalled)
  • The 2MP macro camera is not great, and even photos taken in broad daylight look quite poor
