Oppo Reno Ace smartphone - advantages and disadvantages

Mid-autumn 2019 continues to pamper fans of mobile gadgets with new models of smartphones. The well-known brand Orro also distinguished itself in this regard, which on 10.10.2019 represents the flagship-level device Reno Ace, certified under the PCLM10 index. What technical characteristics and capabilities are remarkable for the autumn novelty of this year will be considered in this article.

Features of external design and ergonomics

In general, the device has all the external features of a modern smartphone: Reno Ace is a full-size device with rounded edges and rounded corners, equipped with a teardrop notch in front in accordance with the current trends. Its back and front panels are protected by hardened Gorilla Glass: the front surface is six, the back is the fifth version. These protective glass surfaces are interconnected by an aluminum frame.

The front panel, the main part of which is the screen, is equipped with a fingerprint sensor.
The rear surface was distinguished by the presence of a quad camera.

Traditionally, the end surfaces of the phone are equipped with keys responsible for sound control and turning on the device.

The potential consumer will be able to choose the color scheme they like for the body from blue, green and purple options.

The product weighs 200 grams. Its dimensions correspond to the parameters, in mm: 161.0 × 75.7 × 8.7 (height × width × thickness).

Oppo Reno Ace Smartphone


The AMOLED touchscreen has a 6.5-inch diagonal. The technology used in the device is distinguished by high-quality display of graphic and text information, considerable viewing angles, which is important when watching videos and films, and comfortable implementation of game processes.
The resolution parameter of the screen is 1080 * 2400 pixels with a pixel density of 405 ppi - through such characteristics, it is possible to realize an excellent level of brightness and quality of the displayed picture. The 20/9 aspect ratio display accounts for 83.7% of the total front panel space. With such parameters, the visual perception of any content will be fully convenient.


The function of the software platform in the smartphone is performed by the Android 9 version operating system in demand in 2019. As the practice of its operation has shown, this version simplifies the multitasking dilemma, giving priority to the most frequently used applications. Also, the nine is designed to increase the battery life.

In addition, thanks to the use of a high-performance Snapdragon 855 plus chipset in the unit, the owner of the smartphone will be able to get at his disposal a high-speed device that works without brakes. The 8-core processor operates at 2.96 GHz and is manufactured using 7 nanometer technology. The role of the gaming component is assigned to the Adreno 640 video accelerator, from which you can expect a fairly good level of video playback and high-quality organization of game processes.

Memory options

It should be noted that the presented volumes of internal storage will be quite enough to meet the urgent needs of the average user: random access memory (RAM) corresponds to 12 GB, the value of the built-in storage is 256 GB.

Particularly demanding consumers will be able to expand internal resources at the expense of an external source. The smartphone's memory can be maximized by another 256 GB using a memory card. There is no special slot for microSD: in order to expand the memory capacity, one of the trays of the hybrid dual-SIM slot is used, and therefore the owner of the telephone device will have to decide what is more important for him: the ability to operate different mobile operators or the increased size of the information storage.

Battery device

The device is characterized by a standard battery life of 4000 mAh. The charge guard function is assigned to a non-removable lithium-polymer battery. The specified autonomy during standard operation is enough for the life of the device from one charge for two days. However, the merciless use of the device will not be a problem, as well as a critical situation with a sudden discharge: the Reno Ace trick is that the model from OPRO supports Super Vooc technology.

The 65-watt power supply provides ultra-fast charge recovery in 25 minutes. The brand focuses on the fact that their own charging system is extremely fast. So, it has a higher rate compared to the sensational Galaxy Note 10, charging at a speed of 45 watts.


The rear camera is equipped with a four-module sensor. It includes a 48 megapixel main wide-angle sensor with f / 1.7 aperture, which is complemented by a 13 megapixel f / 2.4 telephoto lens, an 8 megapixel ultra-wide angle module and f / 2.2, and a 2 megapixel sensor with f / 2.4.

The main camera uses a dual LED flash, operates in HDR mode, captures a panorama, and provides video content recording in the following formats:
2160p @ 30fps, 1080p @ 30 / 60fps.

The front camera, which has become the usual drop-shaped cutout for this kind of devices, is equipped with a single sensor with a resolution of 16 megapixels, the aperture of which corresponds to f / 2.0. It implements high dynamic range operation and records video files in 1080p @ 30fps format.

Network and interfaces

The device is equipped with a tray for two nano-SIM cards, their work is organized in dual standby mode.
The device implements the usual options for transferring and receiving files: wireless Internet Wi-Fi of the 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac standard, as well as Bluetooth version 5, serve this purpose.

Obtaining data on the location of the object on the planet Earth is provided by means of satellite navigation A-GPS, GALILEO, GLONASS, BDS.

You can connect to an adapter or other devices using USB Type-C 1.0, as well as USB On-The-Go.

There is a radio receiving FM waves.


The smartphone implements the speakerphone and active noise suppression modes.
There is a standard audio jack for connecting headphones - 3.5 mm jack.

Additional features

Safe storage of data and prevention of unauthorized access to them is possible thanks to the sensor that reads the fingerprint.For this purpose, a sensor is used that responds by instantly unlocking the device or restricting access to files and applications when the owner's fingerprint touches it. The type of matrix used (Amoled) allows it to be embedded in the display.

The arsenal of observation equipment provides for the presence of sensors standard for electronic devices of the present time: proximity, gyroscope and accelerometer. The first reacts by locking the screen when the telephone structure approaches the hearing organs, which eliminates accidental presses on the display with your ear or cheek, and also helps to save battery power. The second determines the position of the structure in three-dimensional space. The third monitors the turns of the unit, which is of particular importance for gamers who prefer active games.

Under certain conditions, additional comfort will be provided by the compass at the disposal of the device. Through this application, it becomes possible to search for an object on the ground, the location of which is known approximately. In the absence of a map, the compass of the electronic device will help to find it.

Advantages and disadvantages

The review of the presented model was made possible due to the fact that the Chinese Telecommunications Equipment Certification Center provided access to the main technical characteristics of the expected newcomer.

At the stage of preliminary consideration, it is not possible to identify significant disadvantages of the device, while a number of advantages were identified.

  • a decent performance indicator;
  • high-quality picture of a comfortable screen;
  • the presence of a quad camera with good optics of the main sensor and the technical capabilities of auxiliary sensors;
  • the presence of super-fast charging at 65 watts;
  • storage of internal memory sufficient to meet the daily needs of a potential consumer, with the possibility of increasing it due to an external source.
  • no critical flaws were found.

We can conclude that the device, which is positioned as a flagship smartphone, has good functionality and performance. It can be assumed that he will become a good assistant both for solving household and work issues, and for organizing the leisure of its owner.
