Oppo Reno Review



  • In-display fingerprint sensor
  • Edge-to-edge notch-less display
  • Dual-camera setup
  • 48 MP rear camera with 2160p video shooting capability


Oppo Reno is the latest smartphone launched by Oppo in March 2019. With similar specs to Oneplus 7 Pro, the Oppo’s flagship device is a direct competitor in the market of smartphones with notch-less display. Though nowadays a smartphone with a pop-up selfie camera is not new. You can buy one for around Rs 20,000 but the implementation on the Reno makes it exquisite.


Coming to its price, the Oppo Reno is priced at 32,990 with 6GB +128 GB storage. Whereas the higher-end 8GB + 256GB variant can be bought for Rs 49,990.


This particular design used in Reno is currently Oppo’s signature look. The rounded corners and curved sides are modern and sleek and the build quality on the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom is par for the course. Like most smartphones nowadays, the 10x Zoom uses a glass back and metal frame. It comes in 2 shades – Jet black and ocean green. Moreover with no notch or punch hole, the all-display Reno looks pretty good in hands. Apart from that I also liked its unique pop-up selfie camera approach which Oppo calls a “Pivot Rising” structure which is also dubbed as the shark fin popup.


The Oppo Reno sports a 6.6 inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2340 x 1080. The display itself despite being bright and sharp, the decent color reproduction. The colours are accurate, while also being vivid enough to give you that ‘pop’ you’d expect to see when watching your favourite show. Apart from that, you can also choose to have it cooler or warmer or switch off the dynamic/vivid mode in favour of a flatter sRGB option.


The Reno has a triple camera system. It has a 48 MP wide lens, 8 MP ultra-wide lens and 13 MP periscopic lens. The triple-lens setup is capable of recording 4K 2160@ 60fps. In the front, it has a 16 MP motorized pop-up camera, capable of shooting 1080@30 fps.


Equipped with Qualcomm snapdragon 855, 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage, the Reno performs well in terms of processing. Moreover, the in-display optical fingerprint sensor is surprisingly fast. The phone also ships with a 20W fast charger. The Reno has a stereo speaker which is quite good and remains crisp and clear at max volume. Overall for everything that you’re getting, the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom is priced fairly. From performance, design, battery life, and display are all top-notch thus making it a direct competitor with smartphones like Galaxy S10 and Oneplus 7 Pro.
