Oppo Reno 10 5G Goes Big on Design and Features

Premium smartphones with curved displays usually remain exclusive to the high-end market segment. However, Oppo is breaking the mold with the Reno 10 5G, offering a visually appealing device at a more affordable price.

High-end smartphones are often the ones that captivate us with their aesthetics, benefiting from dedicated design teams striving to make them visually striking.

They feature sleek, nearly bezel-less sides and might boast distinctive colors or textures on their backs. Spotting a premium phone is usually easy, but so is recognizing the premium price tag that comes with it.

What if a premium-looking smartphone didn’t come with an exorbitant cost? What if it also included a premium camera design, a feature typically reserved for devices well above the thousand-dollar mark? Enter Oppo’s latest offering, the Reno 10 5G, which aims to deliver high-end aesthetics and an enhanced camera setup at a more budget-friendly price point. But does it succeed in this endeavor?

Design and Build Quality

The Oppo Reno 10 boasts an eye-catching design that combines form and function seamlessly.

Its slim, aluminum frame and glass back exude premium craftsmanship. The device feels substantial in hand without being overly bulky.

The unique feature is the electrochromic back panel that adapts to different lighting conditions. It not only looks stunning but also adds a layer of practicality.

OPPO Reno 10 Display

The Reno 10’s display is a true showstopper. The 6.7-inch AMOLED panel offers vibrant colors, deep blacks, and excellent contrast. With a 120Hz refresh rate and QHD+ resolution, it delivers a buttery-smooth and immersive visual experience.

The under-display front camera ensures a full-screen display without any obtrusive notches or punch holes.

Performance

Under the hood, the Reno 10 is powered by the latest Mediatek Dimesity 7050 chipset, coupled with ample RAM and storage options.

Whether you’re multitasking, gaming, or running demanding applications, this phone handles everything with ease. The OxygenOS skin on top of Android provides a clean and responsive user interface.

Camera System

The camera system on the Reno 10 is impressive but not groundbreaking.

The quad-camera setup, including a 108MP main sensor, produces sharp and detailed images in various lighting conditions.

The 64MP ultrawide lens and 32MP camera lens offer versatility, but the results are slightly inconsistent in low light.

The under-display front camera is a technological marvel, although selfies might not match the quality of rear-camera shots.

Battery Life

The device packs a sizable 5000mAh battery, which easily provides a full day’s usage on a single charge, even with heavy usage.

The 67W SuperVOOC 2.0 fast charging is a standout feature, juicing up the device to 80% in just 20 minutes.

I didn’t test the device on Wireless charging and reverse wireless charging but can be a welcome additions, to make the device more versatile.

Oppo’s ColorOS has come a long way in terms of user-friendliness and customization.

While it still lacks the clean simplicity of stock Android, it offers a plethora of features and customization options.

Frequent updates are crucial for improving the software experience, which Oppo has been working on.

Verdict

The Oppo Reno 10 meets all the criteria for a decent mid-range smartphone experience.

Its display, performance, battery life, design, and camera capabilities all land in the range of ‘good’ to ‘satisfactory’.

Yet, apart from its quick charging and the inclusion of a dedicated telephoto camera, it doesn’t truly distinguish itself in an increasingly competitive market.
