Oppo Reno 10x zoom review

by birtanpublished on November 8, 2020

Hey everyone in the race wears a bezel free future we've seen notches we've seen hole punches and we've seen pop-up cameras and now we've seen a pop up camera in the shape of a shark fin this is OPOs newest flagship the Opel Reno 10 times zoom silly name aside this foam is packed full of features especially that 10 times zoom and it's launching at a very interesting time the Khloe P 30 Pro which is its main competitor has an unclear future ahead of it thanks to the notorious us band so now seems like the perfect moment for the Oppo to swoop in and take its place as the ten-time zoom kink but how good

Is that camera and how are the rest of the features I'm Andrea Fujii of Marina and this is a review of the Opel Reno 10 times zoom used to work in their names on the front and has major bezels in a slightly thicker chin there's no notch and zero space for a front camera which is why you'll have the fin pop up whenever you need to take a selfie personally out of all the pop-up camera designs that we've seen this is probably my favorite but then again I love sharks so I'm incredibly biased when it comes to this strange

Selfie aesthetic aside make no mistake this is a really pre phone the Oppo Reno has a beautiful frosty back that feels great ours is ocean green and it actually lives up to its name there's a line that goes over the cameras and the Opel logo that's a slightly different texture there's also this tiny little bump that Oppo is calling the ODOT supposedly it's there to keep the cameras from being scratched when the phone is on a flat surface and to keep the phone from being too slippery unfortunately that also means

That it wobbles a little bit when it's on a desk but it's not too much so it doesn't get very annoying in the hand the Reno is quite comfortable though it's surprisingly heavy the buttons are in the right place and they're not mushy there's a little crease in the frame to make the grip better and you won't find it slipping out of your hand as you talk however it is a bit wide so it's not always the easiest to use one-handed gestures helped a lot and there's actually a few options for them you can swipe up from the bottom or choose the one where you can swipe in from either

Side to go back of course you can stick to navigation buttons but that takes an extra screen real estate as far as biometrics are concerned there's no slowdown getting into your phone the in display fingerprint reader is one of the fastest optical sensors we've seen and while the face unlocks of the fin isn't quite instant it feels pretty close the phone is made of Gorilla Glass 6 on the front and Gorilla Glass 5 on the back and it has a metal frame if feels sturdy and it'll probably survive a drop as long as it's not from too high up sadly there's no eye protection to speak of

And though there's likely no problem in the rain I'd keep it far away from pools the six point six inch AMOLED is totally flat and bypasses a trend or flagships of curved screens in general it's a good display but it's not the best at its price point it has a full HD resolution and a decent pixel density of 387 PPI you'll get the most accurate colors if you drag the saturation slider to warm because otherwise whites have a bit of a bluish at 440 mix it's bright enough and it's usable on a sunny day but it's not spectacular and you'll get no boost when

You're an auto brightness still despite not standing up from the crowd it's great for watching videos and playing games the vo po is pretty good on a sound front it has stereo speakers although the sound that comes from the earpiece is worse than the bottom firing one it has a very good level of loudness and sound is surprisingly rich there's no headphone jack and the phone did not come with the dongle so we couldn't test the audio quality because it really depends on what sort of adapter you buy on the bottom of the phone there's also an expandable card slot so you won't

Feel limited when downloading music or videos with 4065 milliamp hours this is not the biggest battery we've seen but endurance turned out to be spectacular it got an endurance rating of one hundred and seven hours and her battery life tests the 20 watt luk fast charging is also excellent because it gets you from zero to 52% in half an hour the Reno flies through games and day-to-day tasks this is not surprising with a Snapdragon 855 chipset after all only Samsung's latest Exynos is a match for it in the Android world the Oppo Reno runs Android Pi with opus latest

Color OS 6 on top this is not the cleanest most pared on UI you'll see but the extras are nice and they don't bog down the phone some like the one tap lock screen seem a little silly but others are quite fun like music party which sings several phones to play the same song there's a smart assistant on the left of the main screen that is less an assistant and more a shelf with a bunch of shortcuts and there's a side bar that's reminiscent of Samsung's edge you can block notifications and put up your shortcut apps but sadly you can't put any context in there the

Notification shade has taken a cue from Apple and it looks a little more like iOS however it doesn't impede usability and it looks nice speaking of looks I found the icons to be a little cluttered for my taste so the first thing I did when I got my hands on the phone was to install a more minimal theme the oakarina 10 times zoom has a triple camera setup there's the telephoto camera and an ultra wide one but the star is the 48 megapixel main sensor it combines each four adjacent pixels into one which results in a higher-quality 12 megapixel shot daylight's naps are

Excellent they have plenty of detail a wide dynamic range accurate colors in good contrast the processing is quite good see when you won't find too many sharpening halos your wide camera has good colors and excellent contrast there's plenty of detail in the center of the images and auto HDR helps with a weaker dynamic range sadly the telephoto experience is less epic than you'd expect from a phone with such a name the default 6 times zoom was a hybrid between optical and digital zoom since the lens is really 5 times so to get purely optical magnification you

Need to pinch zoom to 5 times which is not very user-friendly 5 times zoom produces detailed shots with accurate colors and good detail levels even the dynamic range isn't too bad photos with 6 times zoom don't offer any extra detail and have lower perfect Schley sharpness compared to the 5 times zoom really it's the same as cropping a 5-time shot and post photos with the 10 times zoom aren't good for pixel peeping and are only good for focusing and exposing a subject in the distance the low-light photos have a too dark exposure but are otherwise

Impressive they have plenty of detail little noise and pretty much 0 camera shake thanks to the OIS there's also night mode which takes a second or two you'll need to keep your hands steady but it does a better job of balancing the exposure and it restores blown highlights if you stick to a more conservative 5 times or 6 times zoom the telephoto takes some pretty usable low-light shots the ultra wide images are often murky and underexposed as a favorite highlight clipping prevention the night mode turned out to be incredibly beneficial and improving the

Quality of these shots if you're curious we've left a link to the full comparison between the quality 30 Pro and the Oppo Reno it was a close call but the p30 pro had the upper hand in most shooting scenarios portraits were stellar and had excellent subject separation with no abrupt transitions even when in complex surroundings the 16 megapixel selfie camera has an F 2.0 aperture and a fixed focus when there's enough light selfies are super detailed and sharp in denver conditions started as drops because of the aggressive noise reduction selfie

Portraits are mediocre especially compared to the main camera and subject separation was a hit-or-miss affair in general the video the Oppo produced blew our expectations out of the water the 4k footage is noise free it's packed with detail and it has great dynamic range colors are on point and contrast is top-notch 4k is only optically stabilized but Full HD clips have the benefit of E is and footage is just as good although in a lower resolution too bad we get no video recording by the telephoto or the ultra wide cameras in summary the Oppo vino 10 times zoom has

Clever design a great AMOLED screen class-leading battery performance and a top of the line chipset camera performance is a bit of a mixed bag with it's weird limitations but it's great capabilities images and videos our flagship level but at the same time you have to mess around in settings to really enjoy what the phone is capable of which is a huge hit to the user experience in China in India the phone is pretty much priced at a bargain but in Europe the pricing is merely okay and a month ago I'd have said that this phone is in danger of being overlooked

However now with while we suppose and the gap in the market that they've created the opal has a serious chance of succeeding especially with the versatility of its camera system now opal phones aren't available everywhere but if this one is available where you live I think it's worth a serious consideration thanks for watching if you enjoyed this video hit the like button down below subscribe but the Bell icon and I'll see you next time
