❤ Oppo Reno 7 5G also known as Oppo Find X5 Lite



Oppo is launching the Reno7 5G under two names in Europe and India. The Reno 7 5G is launching in India (and probably some parts of Eastern Europe), whereas the rest of Europe is getting it as the Find X5 Lite. The two models are identical in specs as you can see.

We won’t pretend we can make any sense out of the Oppo’s Reno7 midrange series, but we can surely review them just like they were made official – in no particular order. So, today we have probably one of the most interesting specimens of the Reno7 bunch – the Oppo Reno7 5G.





The Reno7 5G is not just a 5G-enabled version of the global Reno7 smartphone as it has a different camera setup, different chipset, different charging speed, and even different storage.

The Oppo Reno7 5G/Find X5 Lite is quite an interesting offer. It’s a lightweight plastic phone built around a 6.43-inch AMOLED with 1080p resolution, 90Hz refresh rate and HDR10 support. The Dimensity 900 5G chipset is underneath, which should do great for casual gaming and smooth overall performance.

The camera setup is quite familiar as it has become somewhat of a golden standard for the midrange – there is a high-res 64MP primary camera, an 8MP ultrawide shooter and a 2MP imager for closeups. On the other side, within a small perforation on the display, is a 32MP selfie camera.





The Reno7 5G/Find X5 Lite is powered by a 4,500mAh battery that supports 65W VOOC charging. The power adapter is bundled with the phone, and it should do a full charge in half an hour. You bet we’d put that to the test.

Oppo advertises the Reno7 5G/Find X5 Lite for its camera skills and portrait capabilities, fast charging, and gaming-friendly chipset with adequate cooling. And it is indeed a rather palm- and pocket-friendly device that’s 160mm tall and 173g of weight.

If you are familiar with the Oppo Reno6 5G, you may notice that this Reno7 5G is pretty much the same phone with updated storage, increased battery capacity, HDR10 screen certification and an audio jack. Lack of sensible upgrades is somewhat a theme in 2022, quite common actually. So, the Reno6 5G users are skipping this one for sure.

Let’s scroll through its specs sheet now.

The Reno7 5G has one thing that’s been downgraded since the Reno6 5G – the frame. It’s now made of plastic, a step down from the metal one on the Reno6.

Still, the Reno7 5G seems like an adequate all-round midranger – it even covers niche fan-favorite options like an audio jack, a tri-card slot with microSD expansion, NFC. In fact, the only obvious omission is the lack of any ingress protection whatsoever. But if priced right, that should not be an issue.

So, without further ado, here is the Oppo Reno7 5G unboxed.

Unboxing the Oppo Reno7 5G

The Reno7 5G/Find X5 Lite comes packed within one of these cool greenish Oppo boxes. It contains a 65W VOOC charger and a USB-A-to-C cable that’s needed for the VOOC charging to work.





There is also a transparent soft case inside the box, you can find it within the black paper compartment that sits on top of the phone. And finally, once you pop the phone out of the box, you will see that it comes with a thin protective film on its screen – it was applied in the factory.

The film is a smudge magnet and not our thing, but we always appreciate having the extra scratch protection, and we are sure there are many people that will also find value in having it.

The competition

The global model of the Reno7 5G is available in India and Europe, though it is sold under the name Find X5 Lite in Western Europe.

The phone is priced at about INR 28,500 in India and €450 in Europe, and it is positioned between the Reno7 Pro and the Reno7 Lite.



Reno7 Pro 5G, Reno7 5G and Reno7 Lite



Going through our review conclusions, the Oppo Reno7 5G doesn’t seem to have improved on the Reno6 5G that much, if at all. Sure, we appreciate the audio jack, the faster storage, and extra battery juice, but these are not enough of an update to make Reno6 5G owners switch. And that’s fine.

The Reno7 5G is for those wanting to purchase a good midrange phone today, and they will probably be switching from a 2- or 3-year-old smartphone.





The first phone that comes to mind as a direct competitor is the Galaxy A52s, as it offers a faster 120Hz display, complete ingress protection, faster performance, and OIS on the main camera. The A52s costs the same as the Reno7 5G in India, while it’s about €120-€150 cheaper in Europe.

The vivo V23 5G is its biggest threat in India, as it is pretty much the same phone with a similar screen, chipset and battery. The vivo V23 5G has slightly faster graphics (thanks to the updated Dimensity 920 chipset) and impresses with a dual selfie camera with a 50MP primary eye with autofocus and an 8MP ultrawide secondary. This one is great for those taking many selfies throughout their day, and for that – it is probably the better offer. It is available in India only.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G, also known as Xiaomi 11i 5G Hypercharge in India, costs as much as the Reno7 5G (or slightly cheaper in the EU) and is a good alternative. It offers a better 120Hz OLED, slightly faster Dimensity 920 5G chipset, stereo speakers, and unbelievably fast 120W charging. It also offers basic ingress protection and similar camera performance.

The Reno7 Pro 5G is more expensive than the 5G, and for the extra cash, you will get flagship-grade speed thanks to the Dimensity 1200 Max chipset, a slightly larger display and an improved dual-glass design.

The Realme 9 Pro+ is a great alternative for its great pricing and largely similar specs. It seems the phone has almost disappeared on the official channels, and it’s not easy to find.

Another similar smartphone is the OnePlus Nord 2T – it has a similar 90Hz OLED screen and 4,500mAh battery, but it features the fast Dimensity 1300 chipset, OIS on its 50MP primary camera, stereo speakers, and supports up to 80W fast wired charging. The Nord 2T is priced at €400 in Europe, and it makes more sense than the Reno7 5G/Find X5 Lite.

Our verdict

The Reno7 5G a.k.a. Find X5 Lite is an excellent smartphone with a well-rounded feature set and reasonable pricing. Sure, there are better phones out there at the same price, but there are weaker, too.

The Reno7 5G/Find X5 Lite offers an excellent 90Hz AMOLED screen, bright and responsive. The Dimensity 900 5G chipset is more than adequate for smooth gaming on the go, and coupled with the large battery, it delivers great battery life. We can also praise the cooling and the overall stability of the device.

The camera is another aspect that gave us only positive experiences. The photo and video quality across all cameras are very good, and the hardware is consistently reliable.

We liked the design, too, even if it’s mostly plastic. The LDI process on the blue version is cool and makes for a unique effect and feel on touch. And while flashy, it is still pleasant to look at and can easily match any style – official or casual.





Not all is perfect with the Reno7 5G – there are no stereo speakers, no obvious updates over the Reno6 5G, and no ingress protection whatsoever. We also think the Dimensity 920 5G would have been better for faster graphics.

Still, the Reno7 5G is a solid competitive offer, and we do recommend putting it on your shortlists. It has enough to make for a perfect daily driver, as well as a gaming phone and a cameraphone when needed.
