Improve Your Gaming Performance

OPPO Reno6 5G has a gaming mode called Game Space that you can activate to improve game performance, frame rate, and responsiveness. This function can record your gaming data, the number of hours you have played, and the most played game on your device. 

Pro-Tip: You may select the Competitive Mode to ensure you have a smoother gaming experience. To enable Competitive Mode, go to [Game Space], tap the active gaming mode, and select [Competitive Mode]. The only downside: Using this mode can cause the phone to consume more power and heat up. On the flip side, it gives an uninterrupted and immersive mobile gaming experience.
