Design and display: rimless look and punch-hole notch
Visually, the two smartphones go different ways. The edge display of the OPPO Reno4 Pro 5G has almost no border with its curved edges. The screen is only interrupted by a small punch-hole notch in the upper left corner.
The edges of the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G are also very narrow, but not rounded. Here, too, a punch hole is used, which is located in the middle on the upper edge and hardly disturbs the excellent picture experience thanks to the sharp Full HD Plus resolution and the super fluid animations thanks to the 120 Hz frame rate. The 6.5-inch AMOLED display of the OPPO also has a resolution of 2,400 x 1,080 pixels in Full HD Plus, but only has a refresh rate of 90 Hertz.

The front of the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G Gorilla Glass 3 provides scratch and break protection, while the back is made of plastic. The glass of the OPPO Reno4 Pro 5G, on the other hand, is protected by Gorilla Glass 5 on both the front and the back and is protected against dust and splash water thanks to IP54 certification.
The IP68 protection class, on the other hand, makes the Samsung smartphone completely waterproof and dustproof. The color of the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G is particularly striking. It is available in the colors Cloud Navy, Cloud Red, Cloud Lavender, Cloud Mint, Cloud White and Cloud Orange. The OPPO Reno4 Pro 5G, on the other hand, comes in classic blue and black, with the blue variant providing special color effects depending on the incidence of light.
Performance: Snapdragon processors for full power
Inside the fan cell phone from Samsung, the Snapdragon 865, the currently best and most powerful processor from Qualcomm, ensures strong performance, smooth switching between different apps and clear and smooth playback. The eight cores of the high-end SoC have a maximum clock rate of 2.84 GHz and are supported by 6 GB of RAM. For the first time, Samsung is not using the in-house Exynos processor on the European market.
The OPPO Reno4 Pro 5G, on the other hand, is powered by the Snapdragon 765G. The chip of the upper middle class is, so to speak, the slimmed-down version of the high-end SoC Snapdragon 865. With an adapted graphics card, a higher CPU speed and special gaming features, the processor is specially designed for gaming performance. Together with the gigantic 12 GB RAM of the OPPO Reno4 Pro 5G, however, it ensures smooth performance at all times and always works quickly and reliably. Both chips are also 5G-capable and can thus use the fast upload and download speeds of the new cellular standard.
Camera: Triple cameras with different setups
Both smartphones use a triple camera, which is located in an elongated module on the back of the device. The setup of the OPPO Reno4 Pro 5G consists of a 48-megapixel main sensor with f / 1.7 aperture, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor with f / 2.2 aperture and a 13-megapixel telesensor with f / 2.4 aperture.
The main sensor has laser autofocus and optical image stabilization, while the telesensor allows you to zoom in on distant objects with up to three times optical magnification and five times hybrid zoom. With the OPPO Reno4 Pro 5G, you can take razor-sharp and detailed photos. Videos are recorded in a maximum of Full HD at up to 60 fps. The 32-megapixel front camera, meanwhile, ensures impressively sharp selfies.
Reno4 Pro vs S20 FE camera
The camera of the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G, on the other hand, consists of a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor with f / 2.2 aperture, a 12-megapixel wide-angle sensor with f / 1.8 aperture and an 8-megapixel telesensor with f / 2.4 aperture together. Even with this camera equipment, you can take pin-sharp images of distant objects thanks to the triple optical zoom and a 30-fold digital zoom. The wide-angle sensor, on the other hand, records wide scenes without any problems. Optical image stabilization and various modes such as night mode for clear images even in poor light conditions or single take mode are also on board. Video recordings are even possible in 8K quality.
Battery and storage: Samsung is convincing in every respect
In terms of runtime, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G has the lead with its 4,500 mAh battery. With normal use, up to two days should not be a problem. Fast charging is possible with the 25 watt power adapter or wirelessly via wireless charging. Accessories can also be charged using the reverse charging function on the back of the device. The battery of the OPPO Reno4 Pro 5G has a slightly lower battery capacity of 4,000 mAh, but is fully recharged in a record-breaking 36 minutes thanks to the 65-watt fast-charging power supply unit with in-house Super Vooc technology.
In terms of storage capacity, you shouldn’t have any problems with the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G. The available 128 GB can be expanded by up to 1 TB using a microSD card. The OPPO Reno4 Pro 5G has a larger internal memory of 256 GB, but it cannot be expanded externally.
Conclusion: OPPO Reno4 Pro 5G vs. Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G
With both smartphones, you are opting for a very successful device from the upper middle class, even if the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G is a bit ahead for us. The OPPO Reno4 Pro 5G has a slightly more modern look thanks to its edge display with rounded edges and the glass back, but the Samsung fan phone is always one step ahead in terms of hardware. Here you will find the better screen technology, the more powerful processor, the more sophisticated camera AI, the larger battery and a huge memory.
