The Oppo Reno7 Lite 5G is rocking a solid, even if rather unimpressive, basic 6.43-inch FullHD+ (20:9) AMOLED display. That means you can expect vivid colors and perfect blacks from it, without anything too fancy like high refresh rate or 10-bit color or HDR support.
In terms of performance, Oppo isn't hiding or over-promising anything. Marketing claims that the Reno7 Lite 5G has a typical max brightness of around 430 nits and a maximum of about 600 nits. In our standardized testing we measure a max of 447 nits in the default mode on the slider and 657 nits in max auto in direct sunlight. Far from chart-topping results, but not too shabby at all. The phone is perfectly usable outdoors in anything short of direct sunlight.

The Reno7 Lite 5G isn't particularly color-accurate. It has two color modes - Vivid and Natural. Vivid is on by default and seems to target the DCI-P3 color space but doesn't do particularly well. The white and grays are blue and cold. There is a temperature slider, which helps to some extent but can't quite get you color-accurate results.
The same goes for Natural mode. It targets sRGB and gets closer but still misses the color-accurate mark by a bit due to excessively blue whites. You can't fully fix that one either. So, you are probably best off just leaving the default vivid profile on.
The Reno7 Lite 5G has no HDR support on its display. The chipset itself is capable of decoding HDR 10 and HLG, but any video in those will be mapped to SDR colors when playing. On a more positive note, the phone has the highest possible Widevine L1 DRM certification, which allows it to stream HD and higher quality content. Netflix was more than happy to offer up FullHD streams.
The Reno7 Lite 5G packs a decent-sized 4,500 mAh battery. That's not too shabby at all, particularly for a 7.5mm thick phone that only weighs 173 grams. The 6nm Snapdragon 695 5G chipset might not excel at many things, but it has already proven to be efficient in the handful of devices we have already reviewed.
The Reno7 Lite 5G is no exception to the rule. It managed a very respectable 125 hours of total endurance in our standardized testing.
The individual test scores are high as well. We had no issues with standby either. A great showing all around.
Our battery tests were automated thanks to SmartViser, using its viSerDevice app. The endurance rating denotes how long the battery charge will last you if you use the device for an hour of telephony, web browsing, and video playback daily. More details can be found here.
Video test carried out in 60Hz refresh rate mode. Web browsing test done at the display's highest refresh rate whenever possible. Refer to the respective reviews for specifics. To adjust the endurance rating formula to match your own usage patterns check out our all-time battery test results chart where you can also find all phones we've tested.
The Oppo Reno7 Lite 5G is capable of SUPERVOOC charging at up to 33W. You get the appropriate charger and cable included in the case.
While far from the fastest charging around, it is still speedy with 52% battery from dead after 30 minutes on the cable and a full charge taking over 70 minutes.
Higher is better
Lower is better
Clearly, not a chart-topper, but not too shabby either, managing to easily outpace its Samsung competitors while also remaining in "reasonable" wattage territory that shouldn't cause any unnecessary worry about the long-term health of the battery pack. A nice balance, if you ask us.
The Oppo Reno7 Lite 5G has a single bottom-firing speaker. That's it. It even lacks any sort of hybrid stereo setup. It doesn't get very loud either, managing just an "Average" loudness score in our testing.
On a much more positive note, the single speaker sounds impressively clean. That is reflected nicely in its relatively tight frequency response curve, under the particular circumstances, that is. The speaker is nice and full with no distortion or screeches in the highs and nice clean vocals. The lows are expectedly a bit absent, though. Overall, not too shabby at all, though it should be noted that at this price point, stereo speakers are easily attainable from other devices.
Use the Playback controls to listen to the phone sample recordings (best use headphones). We measure the average loudness of the speakers in LUFS. A lower absolute value means a louder sound. A look at the frequency response chart will tell you how far off the ideal "0db" flat line is the reproduction of the bass, treble, and mid frequencies. You can add more phones to compare how they differ. The scores and ratings are not comparable with our older loudspeaker test. Learn more about how we test here.
