Let’s get on with the Oppo Reno 6 review now. This is one of the latest handsets from HTC that has managed to keep its price down by providing a variety of features in an effort to differentiate it from other similar handsets. So what makes this one of the better deals out there? I’ll give you that one right away. Read on to find out.
With all of the effort that HTC has put into increasing the robustness of its hardware, it is surprising that the company hasn’t invested in furthering its connectivity options with the HTC Butterfly 2. This is probably because they would have been forced to do so, given the level of connectivity that is currently provided by the Butterfly 2. It would have been a mistake therefore to include a dedicated camera Connectivity module in the package.
The phone has got all of the standard HTC features, which you would expect from an entry level handset such as the HTC Desire. There is a nice SIM tray and volume buttons on the sides. Then, on top of it, you will notice the dual cameras, namely, the Selfie cam that takes up a nice chunk of the front of the handset. This is a high quality camera, that is capable of great image quality, though it can be a little fickle when it comes to focusing. The second camera, the monochrome camera, also produces decent images, though it isn’t as bright as the first camera. The battery is also not as powerful as the one fitted to the Desire, but it should still allow you to make a number of calls easily.
As for the software side of things, Oppo has included an application called AirVideo which allows you to view videos on your device from any Windows-based PC or laptop. There is also a nice application called Sharpvision that allows you to view photos in your Android device’s camera lens. On the device itself, there is the Oppo Reno QS Pro skin which increases the wallpaper size of the handset. It adds a nice touch of glamour to an otherwise ordinary looking handset. If you want a different look from the regular one, then you should opt for this skin. Oppo Reno 6
It is a nice touch to include a USB cable with the Oppo Reno 6, but unfortunately the power brick is missing. You can buy an individual brick at a very reasonable price and install it in the back of the phone. This makes it possible for you to use your phone without any connectivity problems with the brick. You will have to decide if the lack of connectivity to the computer is worth buying the handset, especially if you are going to use it for business purposes. The camera, on the other hand, is more than sufficient.
With the Oppo Reno 6, you get excellent sound quality, a beautiful screen and a built in accelerometer, but it has only one megapixel camera as compared to the two available on the 6 pro. This does not affect the functionality of the device, as the camera is quite good for amateur pictures. However, if you intend to take professional pictures then the two cameras provided in the Oppo Reno 6 are sufficient. The battery life of this handset is less than adequate, though it lasts for about twenty minutes before draining completely. You can expect about three hours of music playback on this device, which is far more than the one hour promised by the manufacturer.
