Reviews for the Oppo F21 Pro 5G
Source: OI Spice Tech News
The conclusion of the Oppo F21 Pro 4G and F21 Pro 5G are great phones in the mid-range. But at the same time, they are not offering something new that will attract the interested buyer. Undeniably, both devices offer impressive features and specs. Both the phones feel overpriced, while there are a lot of better options available in the market. The best alternative for both devices would be the Vivo iQOO Neo 6 smartphone as it brings better specs, decent refresh rate, and long-lasting battery life. But if you are looking for a better 4G option, we highly prefer you to take a look at the Vivo V23e 4G for the all-rounder attributes.

The Oppo Reno7 Lite 5G/Oppo Reno7 Z 5G/Oppo F21 Pro 5G, depending on how it's called on your market, is a thin, light and attractive device. It packs a modern set of features and offers a well-rounded overall experience. The AMOLED display, while not chart-topping and just 60Hz, is solid in everyday use. The battery offers great endurance for its capacity and snappy charging. The Snapdragon 695 chipset, while deficient in terms of video capture, is still a great middle-of-the-line part in terms of performance. Even though it lacks an ultrawide or dedicated telephoto, the camera setup performs well with its hardware. That's basically a reoccurring theme with the Reno7 Lite 5G - it is a solid and satisfactory, well-rounded mid-ranger that is equally good at not disappointing as it is at failing to excite in any meaningful way. Well, other than its appealing exterior, that is. The problem is that it is not cheap. In fact, we might even go as far as to call it relatively overpriced for its features. If you do end up getting a Reno7 Lite 5G on a good deal, you likely won't be disappointed with it...

The OPPO F21 Pro 5G is a phone that might not match hardware requirements from a phone that costs above Rs 25,000, but it sure does score on looks. Daylight camera performance is good enough as is the battery life, but the lack of a high refresh display or stereo speakers cuts into the usability of the device. If gaming and heavy CPU usage is something that’s part of your regular usage, then the F21 Pro 5G might not be the ideal choice. For the rest, the device can be a viable option thanks to its good design, Android 12, and decent image-taking prowess in plenty of light.

The Oppo F21 Pro 5G is all about camera performance. From picture-perfect portraits to overall colours and detailing, it ensures great images in daylight. However, for night photography, Oppo still needs to figure out something really impressive. But as we said, it’s not just about cameras. F21 Pro 5G provides decent battery life, stylish design, bright display, smooth user experience with lots of features, and decent overall performance for day-to-day tasks. Though, its 60Hz refresh rate display at the price of Rs. 27,999 surely leaves room for improvement. But, we can’t neglect the competition in the same price range and the biggest competitor is none other than its own Reno 7 5G with a better selfie camera, higher refresh rate and MediaTek Dimensity 900 5G processor in just an extra 1000 bucks. Besides this, Vivo V21 5G can be another option with a 44MP selfie camera and a higher refresh rate priced at Rs. 26,699. Well, if camera is not your priority, then there is Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge with good display and its 120W fast charging.

Qualcomm Adreno 619: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 750G) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. The performance is a lot better than the old Adreno 612.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
SD 695 5G: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 660 cores (two fast 2.2 GHz ARM Cortex-A78 based cores in a cluster and six power saving ARM Cortex-A55 based cores at 1.7 GHz) and a lower mid range Adreno 619 GPU. Supports only Wi-Fi 5 and is manufactured in the 6 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
74%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
