About DXOMARK Display tests: For scoring and analysis in our smartphone and other display reviews, DXOMARK engineers perform a variety of objective and perceptual tests under controlled lab and real-life conditions. This article highlights the most important results of our testing. Note that we evaluate display attributes using only the device’s built-in display hardware and its still image (gallery) and video apps at their default settings. (For in-depth information about how we evaluate smartphone and other displays, check out our articles, “How DXOMARK tests display quality” and “A closer look at DXOMARK Display testing.”)
- Uniform in brightness and color.
- Faithful color indoors.
- Unstable triggering of outdoor image enhancement.
- Oversaturated colors on HDR10 video content color.
The Oppo Reno 6 5G’s performance in our Display protocol tests placed it in the middle of the pack among all devices tested thus far, albeit slightly on the lower side.
The Oppo Reno6 5G has very good brightness and color uniformity across its screen.
With respect to color, a pink cast is often visible, especially in low-light conditions. Outdoors, an orange cast is noticeable. Overall, the Oppo Reno6 5G has fairly accurate color fidelity for content in the sRGB color space (left), though somewhat less so in the P3 color space (right). In the charts below, the center of each circle is the target color; the further the tip of the arrow is outside of the circle, the more users will notice the difference between the color on the display and the original color of the source material.
When viewed on angle, the Reno6 5G’s white point shifts to blue and then into pink. These shifts are illustrated below in the P3 color space, as denoted by the many dots falling outside of both the inner and outer circles.
The Reno6 5G shows a few frame drops on 30 fps videos (left) and many frame drops on 60 fps videos (right). However, frame drops are not visible when playing video games. When moving forwards or backwards in a video, the device pauses before resuming playback.
Although its zoom is capped, the Reno6 5G’s touch accuracy in the gallery app is satisfying. While gaming, every part of the screen is responsive to touch. The device is quite smooth when browsing, but a few steps are visible when swiping through photos in the gallery app.
The device reacts to some ghost touches, especially in landscape mode, and aliasing is visible when playing video games.
