Digital Camera World Verdict

The Oppo Reno 4 Pro is one of the thinnest phones around, and combines that litheness with premium design, a competent camera system, and a stunning screen. While it definitely isn’t without its highlights, costing £699 (roughly $900), it’s the most expensive Snapdragon 765G phone you can buy that doesn’t fold. Still, if you don’t care about brute force for gaming, and want a solid user experience combined with fast charging, it could be all the phone you need

Oppo has served up two flagship camera phones since the brand launched its smartphone line in Europe in 2019: the Reno 10X Zoom and the Find X2 Pro. Both excellent camera phones, they impressed with mighty zooms, and the Find X2 Pro even debuted Sony’s brand new sensor, the IMX 689 when it launched in early 2020. Despite costing £699 (approximately $900), the new Reno 4 Pro 5G isn’t a flagship. Instead, it’s a premium mix of high-end and midrange, aiming for anyone who values style over supercharged internals. 

Launched alongside the Reno 4 and Reno 4Z, the Reno 4 Pro sits at the top of Oppo’s latest line. It packs a gorgeous, big screen, amongst the thinnest designs on any current-gen phone, and seriously nippy charging — 65W, which translates to a full tank in under 40 minutes.
