Success Metrics


OPPO Reno Series started in 2019 and the first Reno Smartphone became famous thanks to their unique shark like fin design which integrated the selfie camera. With the OPPO Reno4 Series just having been released, OPPO is back to a more conventional front side design now with a selfie camera placed into a small punch on the screens.

Testing Results

The OPPO Reno4 Series includes three different models, two having integrating displays with higher refresh rate. Even the OPPO Reno4 Z 5G, the entry model of OPPO Reno4 Series gets a surprisingly good 120Hz refresh rate LCD display. Overall, all 3 models are lightweight, even though integrating a 4000 mAh battery to power their 5G processors. Intriguingly, the OPPO Reno4 5G and OPPO Reno4 Pro 5G are equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 5G which has been already seen on many Smartphones this year, while OPPO Reno4 Z 5G gets the Mediatek Dimensity 800.

After a few days of usage, we soon established that with light weight and excellent displays, all three Smartphones are wonderfully comfortable to use. Here at ViserMark, our aim is to verify if end users will be satisfied with the battery life and performance of Smartphones. We tested and proved the real difference in terms of battery performance across the three Smartphones from the Reno 4 Series.

On taking delivery of Smartphones in our testing lab that integrate screens with variable refresh rates, our ViserMark scores are calculated by averaging results across the different settings.

All three Smartphones within OPPO Reno4 Series achieved very similar battery life performance with respectable scores starting from 181 to 208. The OPPO Reno4 Pro 5G and the OPPO Reno4 Z 5G have been ranked with 1.5 Days of Battery Life, with individual performance scores of 181 and 185.

OPPO Reno4 5G has been ranked with 2 Days of Battery Life, with a performance score of 208. With its 60Hz refresh rate display and the capability to support 2 days of usage, it has an excellent performance for a combination of 6.4’’ screen/183g body. These results define the OPPO Reno4 5G Smartphone the best from the three in the OPPO Reno4 Series.

Both the OPPO Reno4 Z 5G and OPPO Reno4 Pro 5G achieves a very solid performance for their specification, with unique features such as:

- OPPO Reno4 Pro 5G is integrating a mid to high-end processor, 6.5’’ 90Hz screen in a 172g body

- OPPO Reno4 Z 5G is integrating a 6.57’’ 120Hz screen in a 184g body

We are delighted to say that both OPPO Reno Pro 5G and the OPPO Reno4 Z 5G Smartphones deliver high end performance for at least 1.5 Days of Battery Life.


All three Smartphones from the OPPO Reno4 Series clearly demonstrate their power efficiency through the ViserMark testing protocol. By combining light bodies, 4000 mAh batteries and mid to high end processors, particularly in wide screens, often causes a compromise in the Battery Life performance. OPPO succeeded to overcome this challenge by achieving an incredibly good integration of all components to maintain a high level of quality experience relating to Battery Life.
