The overall performance falls exactly in the range in which it was positioned, they are not as exciting as in the case of the Oppo Reno 2, but we can define it as capable of doing its job without too many hitches.

Overall, the system still manages to shoot great snapshots, but it does not innovate or renew what we are usually used to seeing in the mid-range of the mobile market. The images are good in all light conditions, with fairly well-defined details and slightly lower than for example a Motorola One Action or similar to a Nokia 6.2.

THE videoon the other hand, they are made to the maximum in 4K to 30fpsthe electronic stabilization is good, the yield remains exactly on the same previous level, without taking flight, nor in any case being considered unsatisfactory.
