Design and Body

Although, Oppo F21 Pro 5G is launched in the upper midrange category, its design is purely premium. It has a bit of a boxy shape with flat sides. All of its sides have pretty thin bazzles. Backside has a frosted glass. The new Rainbow Spectrum color looks pretty unique. Camera setup is different here as there are 2 round camera lenses coming out of the body instead of a complete rectangular module.

Sides are almost flat that provide a premium look to this device. Weight distribution is impressive which contributes to comfortable handling.

The design of this smartphone makes it both premium and comfortable at the same time. This phone also comes with IPX4 water and dust protection.

Oppo F21 Pro 5G comes with a 6.43-inch FHD panel with a punch hole on the top left. It isn’t as big as other smartphones available in this budget. The medium size makes it more manageable and practical and retains all the functional aspects of a big smartphone.

The AMOLED display supports a 60 Hz refresh rate. Higher refresh rate could be a plus but that is not available. Still, the display is rich in colors and smooth as well. RGB ring light around the camera is among the major changes in design. It is a notification light and also shows charging progress. A cool feature right?

As this device gets an AMOLED display, its screen is visible in extreme lighting conditions. The display is protected by Schott Xensation glass.

Oppo never disappoints its customers when we talk about cameras. Oppo F21 Pro 5G has a triple-camera setup at the back just like the simple F21 Pro. This device can take stunning pictures due to the large sensor size and impressive image processing software. A 2MP microscope and 2MP depth sensor are also there that might be handy in some conditions.

It comes with a 16 MP selfie-camera. It might be a downgrade from the 32 MP camera of the simple F21 Pro. But it can still capture amazing selfies better than many other devices in this price category. Its selfie-camera has an RGB ring light.
