Today, Thursday, Oppo officially launched the Reno6 5G. Nau.ch has already tested the cell phone and is more than convinced in view of the price.
the essentials in brief
- The Oppo Reno6 5G costs 499 francs – but there is still a cashback campaign.
- The smartphone shines with the battery and impresses with an enormous price-performance.
Oppo is on the rise in Switzerland. The move of the Chinese manufacturer began with the Reno 5G.
A little over two years have passed since the first 5G mobile phone in Switzerland. Now today, Thursday, Oppo presented the sixth iteration of the Reno series. Nau.ch was lucky enough to be able to try out the new standard version called Oppo Reno6 5G for some time.
The Oppo Reno6 5G is an extremely beautiful mobile phone. It is somewhat reminiscent of the design of other manufacturers, but has its own touch. The back consists of the so-called “Reno Glow”. According to the manufacturer, the surface prevents fingerprints and craters.
I agree: the back is actually extremely dirt-resistant. All in all, it must be said: color, design and use, everything is great!
Performance with a respectable price-performance ratio
There is a small copyist for the interior. An MTK Dimensity 900 is used as the chip. This roughly corresponds to the performance of a two-year flagship core.
But if you don’t want the ultimate gaming phone, you are well served with it. There are also 8 gigabytes of RAM and 128 gigabytes of memory. Overall, the hardware is not top of the range, but offers a very, very solid price-performance ratio.
Even with the camera, given the price, there is nothing to complain about. There are three sensors: a 64-megapixel main camera, a wide-angle with 8 MP and finally a 2-MP macro lens.
There is up to 20x digital zoom. The selfie cam comes with 32 megapixels.
The best battery in a budget phone
The screen has a 90 Hz refresh rate. This value corresponds to the price range.
However, my favorite point of the Reno6 cannot be seen from the outside: the battery. This is a proud 4300 mAh. In combination with the energy-efficient chip, the mobile phone runs for almost two days if used intensively.
And if this is empty, it can be charged with a powerful 65 watts. It only takes around 15 minutes to charge almost 60 percent.
The battery and the charging speed alone are a clear selling point for me. These properties make it perfect as a second mobile phone.
In contrast to the flagships from Apple, Samsung and Co., the Oppo Reno6 comes with a suitable power supply unit. Mind you, this supports the above performance.
For a short time from CHF 399
The special thing about the device is the price. This is 499 francs. All in all, this is an extremely fair price for what is on offer. There is also the cashback option launched by Oppo.
Anyone who buys the cell phone will receive 100 francs back after registering by October 24th. In itself, the Oppo Reno6 5G would be one of, if not the best budget smartphone of the year due to its price-performance ratio.
And if you can finally complain about something small: The device is «only» certified according to IP54. So it is dust and splash proof. However, the device must not be sent diving for cleaning.
There is also a big brother
If you want a little more performance, you may find help with the more powerful model: The Reno6 5G Pro will also be launched today, Thursday. For this, however, you have to dig a little deeper into your pocket with 799 francs.
