As we all know, OPPO has a product line called Reno. Its original mission is to take over the mantle of the outstanding R series and become a new weapon for OPPO to fight in this squeezed domestic mobile phone market.
However, before this weapon becomes available, it has to go through a period of running-in, and Reno can't avoid it. After experiencing catastrophes such as fuzzy product positioning and chaotic new product cycle, Reno finally found the direction of his efforts: image and appearance. In recent generations, products have also evolved in the established direction.
In the blink of an eye, the Reno series ushered in the newest member of the Reno6 family, so what surprises will the 6th generation Reno give consumers? Let me help you experience it first.
The appearance is dazzling, like a lake sparkling
The two machines I got this time are OPPO Reno6 Pro and Reno6 Pro+. The experience described in the full text will focus on the latter, but in terms of appearance, the former is more attractive to me because its back cover adopts Crystal Diamond 3.0 technology. .

Since Reno4, OPPO has created the Crystal Diamond 1.0 process. Based on AG glass, the spherical crystals on the microscopic surface are transformed into polyhedral pyramidal crystals. Therefore, when the light shines on the back cover of Reno4, it will emit a blinking light of Bling Bling, which looks like a dream.
Then to the Reno5 series launched last year, OPPO upgraded the crystal diamond technology to 2.0 form. This time the crystal structure of the back cover has undergone a little change. The crystals of the pyramid structure are arranged more closely and the particles are larger. In exchange, it is in the sun. , The back cover of the Reno5 series of mobile phones emits more shining light, and under different angles, you can see the gradual effect from blue to purple. The crystal diamond effect visible to the naked eye interprets the Reno Glow printed on the back cover.

I don’t have a Reno5 series mobile phone, but the back cover of this Moonsea Reno6 Pro+ is made by the Crystal Diamond 2.0 process. The crystals are extremely fine, which looks like the effect created by metal sandblasting, flashing With a faint gleam, like flickering stars in the night sky, the touch feels similar to the texture of frosted AG glass.
In this OPPO Reno6 series, through a new process, the flash area of the crystal particles is increased, and the growth direction of the crystal is controlled at the same time. Under the microscope lens of Find X3 Pro, you can see that the crystals point in the same direction in pieces, and the crystals are no longer arranged irregularly.
I shook my hand on this Reno6 Pro. The crystal of the back cover shone with a non-dazzling light, like a shallow wave of light in the summer sun. I touched it with my fingertips. The back cover still maintains a smooth texture. When the nail is scratched on it, its bumps can be clearly felt again.
This experience of seeing is not what you feel is amazing. Of course, it's not just for good looks. This touch of unevenness has the effect of not leaving fingerprints and hand sweat.
The rear camera system adopts an in-line arrangement. The modules are not large, occupying only the upper left corner, and the protrusions are not obvious. When the screen is placed on the desktop, it is relatively safe and will not easily appear seesaw effect.
In the Reno6 series, only Reno6 with the lowest configuration uses a rounded straight edge design, and the other two models are hyperboloid designs, which are the two models I have in hand.
The back cover of the curved crystal diamond extends downwards to the curved middle frame, and then to the curved screen, creating the ultimate lightness. Whether it is the feel or the book data, you can hardly deny my statement. The Reno6 Pro is 7.6mm thick and weighs 177g. Reno6 Pro+ is 7.99mm thick and weighs 188g. They all use a 6.55-inch screen, but they can still be held and used with one hand.
The front is designed with a hole-digging screen + fingerprint under the screen. The resolution of this AMOLED flexible screen is 2400 x 1080, the maximum refresh rate is 90Hz, and the touch sampling rate is 120Hz by default, which can be reached in extreme scenes such as games. 180Hz; 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, watching this screen most of the time, the look and feel is acceptable, but the fineness is still a bit less interesting.
The global maximum brightness of the other two phones is both 500 nits, and the global excitation maximum brightness is both 800 nits, but the higher unit price of Reno6 Pro+ has a higher level of local peak brightness, reaching 1100 nits.
Although the design of the curved screen can create the feeling that the screen extends outwards, in actual use, I still prefer a straight screen.
In daily use, this curved screen is not a big problem. ColorOS 11's edge anti-incorrect touch mechanism is done well, but in the game, due to the horizontal screen holding state, occasionally you may encounter accidental touches and clicks. The situation does not trigger when there is a very small button in the corner.
Such a situation is rare, but it is always unpleasant to encounter it. If you encounter such a situation during the battle, it will ignite the powder keg in your heart. In order to avoid this situation, my main game machine is still the same. A direct-screen machine with a screen refresh rate of 90Hz.
But if you don't play mobile games basically, the curved screen of the Reno6 Pro series is still quite fragrant.
Performance, still very Reno
Speaking of hardware specifications, OPPO left Qualcomm’s flagship chip Snapdragon 888 to its Find X3 series, while on the Reno6 series, it uses sub-flagship chips, namely: MediaTek Dimensity 1200 and Reno6 Pro. Snapdragon 870 on Reno6 Pro+.
The Antutu scores are very close, with the former being 690,000 points and the latter being 10,000 points higher. Therefore, for the performance part, I mainly experience the top-of-the-line Reno6 Pro+.
First, list the main performance parameters of Reno6 Pro+:
CPU: Qualcomm Snapdragon 870, the highest clocked frequency is 3.2GHz, eight cores;
Screen: 6.65-inch OLED screen, 92.1% screen-to-body ratio, up to 90Hz refresh rate, support HDR10+;
Resolution: 2400 x 1080;
Memory: 8GB/12GB LPDDR4x;
Storage capacity: 128GB/256GB UFS 3.1;
Network: dual card dual standby, support Wi-Fi 6 protocol, Bluetooth 5.2;
Battery: 4500mAh dual battery cell / 65W fast charge;
Other features: full-function NFC, X-axis linear motor.
Price: 3999 yuan / 4499 yuan
Reno6 Pro differs in CPU, but its main specifications are the same as the above configuration, so I won't go into details.
This configuration is naturally no problem for daily use: opening applications, switching between multiple applications, and playing games are all right. ColorOS 11 is also improving day by day, with beautiful UI and complete personalized functions. Generally speaking, it is a mobile phone suitable for living. However, I can't let go of the game performance you care about.
Reno6 Pro+ was officially announced as the official PEL device of the "Peace Elite" professional league on the day of its release. How does it perform when facing this game?
When entering the game, first open the screen settings and found that there is no high frame rate mode, the highest is the limit, which is the 60fps mode.
So in order to squeeze its performance, I had to set the image quality to HDR HD + extreme frame rate, and set up a single-shot entertainment mode. Until the last 15 minutes of eating chicken, I did not encounter any visible drop frames during the period. At a glance at the frame rate chart, most of the time it is stable at 60fps, only at the final score settlement interface does it return to 30fps.
At this time, the CPU temperature is around 69°, and there is only a sense of warmth in the physical sense, and the heat is concentrated in the left hand when holding the horizontal screen.
It seems that the preparation performance of Reno6 Pro+ is strong enough, and it is ready to open the 90fps mode. After that, just wait for the game to adapt to the model. During the game, I actually didn't have a strong perception of its performance. What impressed me more was the vibration feedback of Reno6 Pro+.
This time OPPO's adjustment of its built-in X-axis linear motor is in place. Every time you shoot, change bombs, get shots, and drive vehicles across different roads, the feedback is different. The vibration is dense and not loose, making the original screen The boring feel of Shangsheng rubbing has more real feedback.
Image, taking into account image quality and function
The four-camera modules on the back cover of Reno6 Pro+ are 13 million pixels telephoto, with 5x hybrid optical zoom capability, aperture F2.4; 50 million pixels main camera with Sony IMX766 sensor, aperture F1.8, support optics Anti-shake; 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle, aperture F2.2, wide-angle 123°, and 2-megapixel macro lens.

Back to the classic "ultra wide-angle + main camera + telephoto" combination, the focal length coverage is complete, and it is more useful to deal with complex scenes.
The main camera benefits from the 1/1.56 inch photosensitive area of the IMX766, plus the aperture size of F1.8. The image quality is very good regardless of day and night, and the zoom is not timid. The details are well preserved, but in the sun In the case of more aggressiveness, a little bit of over-sharpening can still be seen.

Both two-fold zoom and 5x hybrid zoom images are still usable, especially when shooting scenery on the go.

This time, the Reno6 series also invited Bobbi Brown, a global nude makeup artist, to create 5 exclusive "digital nude makeup" effects, which can be manually switched between different makeup looks when taking a selfie.
In addition, there is also the "rejuvenating light spot portrait" function, which can be used in video/photo mode. The large-aperture portrait blur effect realized by AI is fun, but the blur effect is average.
▲ Comparison of camera parameters of the two mobile phones
The last is battery life. Both mobile phones used to be my main machine. The battery life and fast charge performance are very close. After all, the battery capacity of the two mobile phones is 4500mAh, and the SuperVOOC 2.0 fast charge power is also 65W . There is a difference in hardware specifications. In small cases, similar results are considered normal.
For the two mobile phones, I used the same intensity to test: turn on the 90Hz refresh rate mode, the brightness is 50%, play 2 hours of station B video, 1 hour of peace elite, bright screen use for 2 hours , 5 hours uninterrupted use.
In the end , the Reno6 Pro+ equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 has 56% power remaining, while Reno6 Pro has 48% power remaining ; and the two phones start from zero to fully charged, which took 37 minutes (Reno6 Pro+) and 38 minutes (Reno6 Pro) respectively , The results can be said to be quite close, and similar to the level of mainstream flagships. Even in the face of high-intensity WeChat chat scenes, 10 hours is not a problem.
During the period of getting started with Reno6 Pro+, I just had a chance to experience the whole product ecology of OPPO. When I went out and put on OPPO Enco Free2 earphones, a pop-up window appeared on the phone, click to confirm to pair; when I returned home, I turned on the OPPO K9 TV, no remote control is required throughout Open the OPPO smart home and enter the TV interface to allow Reno6 Pro+ to act as a remote control. It can also mirror the screen so that the TV can directly display the screen of the phone; you can wear headphones and continue to watch the TV show late at night if you are afraid of causing noise to other people in the house. , A pop-up window will also appear in the upper right corner of the TV during pairing.
However, the experience advantage of OPPO ecology ends here, and there is no strong closed loop: for example, when I use a mobile phone to mirror the screen, the delay is acceptable, but the lag is visible to the naked eye. I wanted to cast a screen and try to play Peace Elite, but I had to give up. . It is hoped that OPPO's ecological construction can go further, so that OPPO users can get a more complete ecological experience.
In my opinion, the Reno6 series is like a small change based on the previous generation, regardless of appearance or function, it is more mature. Its beautiful appearance attracts people who love beautiful things, and its excellent photographic quality attracts people who love beauty. The Reno series continues to differentiate and innovate on the two tracks of image and appearance, and will eventually leave a strong mark in the numerous domestic mobile phone market.
