OPPO Reno 2: 5 Compelling Reasons to Buy

With the debut of the OPPO Reno series, the Chinese giant once again prioritizes cameras, offering users remarkable features. The first-gen OPPO Reno introduced impressive super-zoom capabilities, and now, the newly launched OPPO Reno 2 continues this trend with an even more accessible price point. Reno 2, a mid-range smartphone, inherits the original Reno’s DNA.

The smartphone boasts a bezel-less display, a robust Snapdragon chipset, quad-cameras, a pop-up selfie camera, and a large battery with fast-charging support. If you’re considering the OPPO Reno 2, here are 5 reasons why it’s a compelling purchase:

5 Reasons to Choose OPPO Reno 2

Stunning Design

Starting with my favorite aspect of the OPPO Reno 2—its eye-catching design. My fond memories of the first-gen OPPO Reno came flooding back while using the Reno 2. Boasting a durable glass construction shielded by Gorilla Glass 5, the Reno 2’s curved design enhances its likable, comfortable feel.

Noteworthy is the luminous black color, selectively shiny and shimmery when light hits it from different angles. Unlike the gradient pattern seen in the first-gen Reno, the Reno 2 features a striking blue ribbon along its central axis and edges. Truly impressive!

Bezel-less Display

Redirect your focus to the captivating bezel-less fullscreen display. OPPO Reno 2 flaunts a 6.55-inch Dynamic AMOLED screen with minimal bezels, achieving a remarkable 93.1% screen-to-body ratio for an immersive viewing experience. It features a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels and is safeguarded by Gorilla Glass 6.

Gaming Powerhouse

Why do I dub OPPO Reno 2 a gaming beast? It’s simple, thanks to the powerful gaming-centric Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G chipset under its hood. Gaming on this device is smooth as silk. We tested popular games like PUBG Mobile (set to high graphics by default), Mortal Kombat, and Fortnite, and they all ran flawlessly. No lag, no frame drops, no stutters – just seamless gameplay.

But gaming prowess isn’t the only ace up Reno 2’s sleeve. It also stands out as one of the top mid-range phones for everyday use. It effortlessly handles all tasks and lasts a full day on a single charge, courtesy of its 4,000mAh battery.

20x Zoom Camera

OPPO Reno 10x Zoom introduced a camera setup enabling 60x digital zoom, which was impressive. Reno 2, while not a direct successor, brings flagship learnings to the mid-range, offering 20x digital zoom via its quad-camera setup. The specifications are listed in the image below.

Shark-fin Rising Camera

Let’s not forget the shark-fin rising camera on the OPPO Reno 2. This pop-up camera design was a standout feature of the first-gen OPPO Reno and remains so with Reno 2.

Firstly, the shark-fin rising camera enables the phone to boast a bezel-less design, which we’ve come to appreciate. It’s snappy and sturdy, offering faster Face Unlock than some non-pop-up camera phones, which is great. OPPO incorporates a 16MP (f/2.0) selfie sensor and an LED flash in the shark-fin rising camera module, producing impressive portraits.

OPPO Reno 2: A Versatile Performer!

OPPO excels with its Reno lineup. The OPPO Reno impressed with its flagship-style design, remarkable performance, a plethora of camera features, and, importantly, an immersive user experience. The OPPO Reno 2 could almost achieve flagship status if not for its mid-range chipset. What’s your take on the new Reno 2? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
