You have a lot of recent options if you don’t want to spend a lot of money but yet want a premium phone with flagship-class performance. OPPO debuted the Reno7 Pro 5G on the peninsula a few days ago, with highly advanced technology and a gorgeous design at a reasonable price. Is the OPPO Reno7 Pro 5G the best device in the high-end sector if top-tier flagships are excluded, or are there other solid rivals? The OnePlus 9RT is now a highly important and viable competitor from a related firm that may cannibalize its sales.
This article will compare both smartphones to help you pick the best model according to your needs.
Design & Display
When it comes to design, the OPPO Reno7 Pro 5G is not only more attractive than the OnePlus 9RT, but also one of the most beautiful gadgets available. It’s really light and thin, and it has flat edges, exactly like the current iPhones. It also boasts a camera module designed with superior materials on the backside, as well as notification LEDs all around. The OnePlus 9RT is made of high-quality materials, such as glass on the back and metal on the frame, although it is thicker and larger than the OPPO Reno7 Pro 5G and has flat borders. Without a question, the OPPO Reno7 Pro 5G wins the design competition.
The screens on the OPPO Reno7 Pro 5G and the OnePlus 9RT aren’t drastically different, but they are distinct panels. To begin, they both include AMOLED displays with a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels and HDR10+ certification, as well as an in-display fingerprint reader and Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The OnePlus 9RT boasts a larger display with a diagonal of 6.62 inches and a higher refresh rate of 120 Hz, making it a superior screen for gaming and those who want the smoothest viewing experience. Both phones include stereo speakers, with the earpiece serving as a secondary speaker.
Specifications & Software
The MediaTek Dimensity 1200 Max chipset powers the OPPO Reno7 Pro 5G, which is an enhanced version of the Dimensity 1200. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 powers the OnePlus 9RT. The newer Dimensity 1200 Max is still inferior to the Snapdragon 888 mobile platform in terms of CPU and GPU performance, despite being an upgrade of the Dimensity 1200. Given that both phones have the same memory configuration (up to 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage), the OnePlus 9RT emerges victorious in the hardware comparison. Nevertheless, both devices are capable of handling mundane tasks such as removing duplicate contacts.
On the Chinese market, the software for these two handsets is the same, but it differs in the worldwide market: ColorOS 12 and OxygenOS 12, respectively.
In case you’re searching for a phone with excellent rear cameras, the OnePlus 9RT should be your first choice. It contains a 50 megapixel Sony IMX766 primary sensor with optical image stabilization (OIS), a 16-megapixel ultrawide camera, and a 2-megapixel macro sensor. The OPPO Reno7 Pro 5G includes a 50-megapixel camera without OIS, an 8-megapixel ultrawide camera, and a 2-megapixel macro camera, but it boasts a better front camera: a Sony IMX709 sensor with a 32-megapixel resolution.
The battery in both the OPPO Reno7 Pro 5G and the OnePlus 9RT is the same: a 4500 mAh one that supports 65W fast charging. Because the battery life of these two gadgets is so comparable, it’s virtually a tie.
The OPPO Reno7 Pro 5G is priced at around €467 / $533 on Amazon. The OnePlus 9RT’s basic model costs €503 (about $574). Finally, owing to its faster refresh rate, stronger CPU, and improved back cameras, the OnePlus 9RT is a superior phone. The OPPO Reno7 Pro 5G, on the other hand, offers a nicer design and a lower price.
