The Reno 10 line of smartphones from OPPO has been released in India. There are three of them: the OPPO Reno 10 5G, the OPPO Reno 10 Pro 5G, and the OPPO Reno 10 Pro+ 5G. Today, we’re going to look at the Oppo Reno 10 5G, which is the base model. This phone has a big 6.7-inch Full HD+ AMOLED screen with a 120Hz frame rate that makes the experience smooth. In India, the base Variant starts at a price of Rs. 32999.
The OPPO Reno line is known for having some of the best cameras out there. In this review, we’ll find out if the OPPO Reno 10 5G is better than other phones in this price band. We’ll look at how well its camera works, how it looks, how long its battery lasts, and how the whole thing feels. Let’s look at the features of this phone and see how it does.
The OPPO Reno 10 5G draws attention right away with its beautiful style. It is a truly delightful high-end smartphone. It has sleek silver side rails that blend beautifully with the back panel, which has a matte finish and changes color when viewed from different angles. The device comes in two beautiful colors: Ice Blue and Silvery Grey. For this review, we were able to check out the Ice Blue version.
At the top of the screen, an artistically placed punch-hole selfie camera improves the look of the phone. The camera section is slightly raised, so when it is placed on a flat surface, it moves a little bit. But this problem is easy to fix by using the protection cover that came with it. The module itself has a big sensor on the top half and two smaller ones on the bottom half, which should make it great for taking photos.
The OPPO Reno 10 5G has a big, 6.7-inch AMOLED screen with curved edges and an amazing 120Hz refresh rate. The screen’s large size and smooth frame rate make it a pleasure to watch. With a maximum brightness of 950 nits, you can also use it easily outside, though you might have trouble seeing it in very bright sunlight.
During our tests, we put the phone through its paces by playing games like BGMI and Asphalt 9, binge-watching videos, and doing other things. The display’s bright colors and great performance really improved the way we watched and listened to multimedia. The curved edges and thin borders on all sides made it even easier to get lost in the show.
We did run into a small problem while watching movies, though. The punch-hole form of the selfie camera on top slightly blocked our view. Still, this was a small problem that didn’t change our general experience much.
The Oppo Reno 10 5G has three cameras: a main camera with a 64MP sensor, a selfie camera with a 32MP telephoto lens, and an ultrawide camera with an 8MP sensor. The main camera takes good pictures with the right amount of clarity when there is enough light, but it sometimes overprocesses pictures, which makes the colors look too bright.
Also, the night mode doesn’t always take good photos, often with less clarity and a hazy look.
The 8MP ultrawide lens has a good field of view, but it doesn’t capture as many details as the main camera does. The 32MP telephoto portrait lens is the best of the bunch. It takes great pictures both inside and outside, with good edge recognition and a good bokeh effect.
The MediaTek Dimensity 7050 processor and 8GB RAM in the Oppo Reno 10 5G give it a lot of power and make it quick and easy to use. Everyday things like calling, browsing social media, and binge-watching work easily, and even intensive things like gaming run without any hiccups. The built-in storage of 256GB gives you plenty of room for photos, videos, and papers.
Gamers will like being able to play heavy games like BGMI at Ultra Framerate with HDR graphics, but heat performance may become an issue after long gaming sessions. The ColorOS 13.1 built on Android 13 is easy to use, but the many pre-installed apps can be annoying. If you don’t want them, you can uninstall them.
