About Oppo Reno 5G - Review, Specs + more The Oppo Reno 5G isn’t the only phone that Oppo launched - check out the Find X as well. But for the purposes of this review we're focussing on the Reno handset family, and they all come in three variants, all of which have a 48-megapixel primary camera. The differences lie in the camera specs and connectivity. The lowest-spec model, dubbed simply the Reno, starts at £499 and has a dual rear camera and no 5G connectivity. You can purchase this great phone from about £30 a month on pay monthly. The Reno 10x Zoom starts at £699 and has a triple-camera setup, including one that delivers the fabled “10x” zoom, while the Reno 5G that we have here, costs £899 and takes all the features of the 10x Zoom and adds – you guessed it – 5G capability. So why didn't they just call this the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom 5G? Presumably, because it's a bit of a mouthful.... Oppo Reno 5G Display With the bigger screen, there’s a slightly beefier 4,065mAh battery in the 10x Zoom and Reno 5G models. The regular Reno opts for a 3,765mAh Li-Po, instead. But they’re all certified to work with Oppo’s own fast-charging technology, VOOC 3.0, which lets you charge the phones from 0% to 75% in 30 minutes, with a full charge taking just under an hour. In previous years, some have criticised Oppo's software for being far too much like Apple's iOS - which just feels odd for an Android-based phone. With the company now moving into Western markets, however, that approach is quickly shifting for the better with each new version of its Android-based ColorOS system. Oppo Reno 5G: Camera Like Huawei’s P30 Pro, this camera array on the back of the Reno uses a periscope to achieve greater degree than would otherwise be possible. In action, the results aren’t quite as picturesque as Huawei’s hardware but they’re far from bad. Colours have a crisp granularity to them and low-light shots taken on the Reno look much better than most other smartphone cameras. As someone who has spent hundreds of hours pushing the P30 cameras to their limits, the fidelity here isn’t quite where I wanted it to be - but, then again, raw picture quality on offer isn’t the draw when it comes to cameras with this kind of telescopic zoom. Pros No notch Improved software Versatile camera kit Cons 5G experience is inconsistent Hefty design No headphone jack Bottom Line The Oppo Reno breaks far more new ground than most flagships do and while it’s not cheap, by the standards of 5G phones, it strikes out as close to a bargain as these things come. If you need a 5G phone then this is probably the one to get - if you're looking for a more well-known brand then don't forget the S10 5G.
