The OPPO Reno10 Series 5G is now official. It just officially hit the shelves nationwide, and you can buy one for as low as PhP23,999.
There are so many good features to talk about the new series. In fact, I had a lengthy and very comprehensive review of the Reno10 Pro+ 5G. If you want to read it, check it out on this link. While my review is specifically focused on its “most pro” variant, it does not necessarily mean that the Reno10 5G and Reno10 Pro 5G are not worth checking out. Quite the contrary, the series packs professional grade features, and each phone definitely has something amazing to offer.
Pro Grade Cameras
The two Pro models share a 50MP 1/1.56-inch IMX890 main rear camera and an 8MP ultrawide IMX355 sensor. However, they differ in their telephoto lenses. The OPPO Reno10 Pro+ has a 64MP 3x telephoto lens, while the OPPO Reno10 Pro 5G has a 32MP 2x telephoto lens. Both models also have a 32MP IMX709 front-facing camera.
The OPPO Reno10 5G has a 64MP OV64B main sensor, a 32MP telephoto lens, and an 8MP ultrawide lens. On the front, it has a 32MP OV32C lens.
All three phones in the OPPO Reno10 Series 5G have Pro Portrait features, which give bokeh flare for portraits. The Pro+ 5G, on the other hand, has a fully upgraded Pro-Portrait Mode with a 3x portrait focal length.
As mentioned earlier, regardless of the version you get, you are assured of the pro-level feature of its cameras.
The Reno10 Series 5G is packed with specifications that are ready for gaming and productivity. In fact, even the lowest variant – the Reno10 5G – has an octa-core processor and 8GB RAM that allow the phone to be used to play mobile games.
Obviously, the higher variant you pick up, the better performance you will experience. The OPPO Reno10 Pro 5G has Snapdragon 778G 5G and the Reno10 Pro+ 5G has a flagship-level Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. If you read my full review of the Reno10 Pro+ 5G, I compared its performance against other phones with varying flagship chipsets where it stacks very competitively.
I would normally include “gaming” within performance. However, I thought of separating this as a new segment because it definitely deserves a lot of your attention.
Let me focus my attention to the Reno10 Pro+ 5G, which I had the longest experience at the time of writing this article. The performance of the games I played – Farlight 84, Diablo Immortal. Honkai Star Rail, and Mobile Legends – says a lot about how capable the phone is. For instance, throughout my gameplay of Farlight 84 – a competitive battle royale game with 3A graphics – the lowest FPS my game dipped from the game lobby to end of the round is 42FPS. Average FPS is 58, which is downright impressive. Conversely, this performance can also be expected not just on gaming but also in terms of using productivity apps.
The series does not just display power in terms of gaming and productivity performance. It also excels in battery and charging performance. For instance, based on my experience, the OPPO Reno10 Pro+ 5G managed to stay up for 12 hours and 45 minutes with moderate usage. Charging it to 100% is hyper fast too at 27 minutes using its 100W SuperVOOC charger.
I must say that all the phones in the series look good! The 3D curved design and OPPO Glow (on Silvery Grey) of the series give it a premium look and comfortable feel. I believe this is the first in the series where you’re only given two choices, regardless of the version you pick: Glossy Purple and Silvery Grey. It is also interesting to note that all phones have the same camera module design.
The phones do not just look good, but they also feel great! They are also very light and thin: none of the phones weigh more than 194g and thicker than 8.28mm, which is almost just as thick as a #2 pencil.
The phones in the new Reno10 Series 5G pack a 6.7-inch and FHD+ display. The OPPO Reno10 Pro+ 5G’s display is slight bigger at 6.74-inches. Everything is also rated with 100% DCI-P3 Color Gamut and 100% sRGB. What do these things mean? This means that you get the most accurate reading and interpretation of color on a smartphone display. These are normally found on computer monitors and TVs, and since we consume a lot of streaming and on-demand video and photo contents on our phones, it is best to own a device that can show accurate colors.
Another feature that you need to know is that none of the phones in the series have a Typical maximum brightness lower than 500. In fact, the phones in the series max out the brightness of display on direct sunlight from 800 to 1,100. Why is this important, you may ask? Imagine yourself shooting a photo of your friend on the beach under the sun. If your phone’s brightness only hovers between 450 to 650 under direct sunlight, it will be much more difficult to view the photo you just took to decide if your shot was perfect enough to be posted on social media.
The OPPO Reno10 Series 5G smartphones combine professional-grade features in cameras, performance, gaming, design, and display quality, catering to various user needs and preferences. I hope this article helps you decide if you are still on the fence on getting either one of the phones. OPPO offers a Pro-level Reno10 for you, and all it takes is to pick the one that your heart desires.
