I attempt a whole lot of smartphones, and I prefer it when one offers me a superb feeling the second I get it out of the field and begin utilizing it. The Oppo Reno 10 managed to do precisely that, with its uncommon digicam module design, curved display, and sparkly, but fashionable coloration scheme.

However after enjoying with the software program and taking it out to snap some images, have I continued to heat to the Reno 10?

Oppo’s Reno sequence has lengthy had a status for delivering feature-packed cameras at an inexpensive worth (see telephones just like the Reno 10x Zoom for proof), so it’s attention-grabbing to see a 32-megapixel telephoto digicam subsequent to the 64MP foremost digicam on the Oppo Reno 10. Nevertheless, it’s not going to rival the Samsung Galaxy S23 Extremely for optical zoom capabilities, because the telephoto is primarily designed for portrait pictures and solely delivers a 2x hybrid optical zoom for normal images.

The telephoto-for-portraits characteristic has additionally been seen on the OnePlus 11, and it’s the identical Sony IMX709 digicam used on that telephone that you just’ll discover on the Reno 10. There are two portrait zoom settings, 1x and 2x, and in my transient checks, the 2x mode lacks element and suffers from poor efficiency in less-than-ideal lighting. The usual 1x mode is best, but it surely’s nonetheless clearly a digital portrait impact once you do take a photograph.

Curiously, you may manually alter the aperture between f/1.4 and f/16, which may also help cut back any synthetic impact. I usually use this characteristic on the iPhone 14 Professional, the place it’s accessible within the modifying suite. In the event you take a whole lot of images of different individuals, then it’s possible you’ll get some worth from the telephoto portrait mode, and maybe extra in depth testing will reveal higher joys, however for now, I might slightly have a extra succesful zoom mode with out the portrait impact.

Within the Reno 10’s digicam app, there’s a shortcut to a 2x hybrid optical zoom and a 5x digital zoom, and the 5x doesn’t do a horrible job contemplating it isn’t an optical mode. The opposite choice is a wide-angle, but it surely’s a disappointing 8MP digicam that unsurprisingly lacks element. The principle 64MP digicam takes nice images, actually within the optimum circumstances I’ve seen throughout my checks. It doesn’t have the scrumptious character of the OnePlus 11’s foremost digicam and might get the distinction and publicity unsuitable in tough lighting generally, however there’s sufficient capability to be inventive with it.

Curvy screens are the perfect

The digicam has been enjoyable to make use of, and I prefer it a fantastic deal. The lenses are set inside an uncommon pill-shaped module on the again of the telephone, which actually units the Reno 10 other than different telephones, and it’s a theme continued throughout your complete Reno 10 household, which additionally consists of a Reno 10 Professional and a Reno 10 Professional+.

My check telephone is within the aptly named Silvery Grey coloration, however an Icy Blue coloration can be accessible, which has a cool gradient impact to it. The Silvery Grey has a whole lot of silver flake within the end, and it sparkles within the daylight, including some enjoyable to what’s in any other case the plain “secure” coloration alternative. Oppo has left behind the flat slab form it used for the Reno 8 Professional and gone for a stunning, curvy display and physique right here; it seems to be futuristic and funky.

The Oppo Reno 10 can be very skinny and lightweight, simply 7.99mm and 185 grams, however this doesn’t imply it’s skimping on the display. It’s a whopping 6.7-unch AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh price and a 93% screen-to-body ratio. Out of the field, the telephone defaults to an adaptive refresh price, however I discovered it didn’t kick in after I wished it to, seemingly in response to Oppo’s always-intrusive energy administration. I compelled a 120Hz refresh price, and the display is splendidly clean on a regular basis. The five hundred nits brightness is common, however the increase characteristic to 800 nits meant it remained seen outdoors within the solar.

What about gaming and the battery?

I like holding the skinny, light-weight, and curvy Oppo Reno 10, however what about utilizing it? I’ve not put my SIM inside but, so my expertise is considerably restricted, however I can see that Oppo’s ColorOS 13 hasn’t modified dramatically since I final used it. There’s a brand new Multi Display Join characteristic that hyperlinks the telephone with different Oppo gadgets, an IR Distant Management characteristic, and a few new widgets — together with one for Spotify for the always-on display.

Frustratingly, ColorOS insisted on mechanically putting in 14 video games after setup with out giving me the possibility to refuse them. Pair this with the battery-saving low refresh price, and the Reno 10 doesn’t present probably the most welcoming expertise. Efficiency comes from a MediaTek Dimensity 7050 processor (which carried out properly within the Realme 11 Professional+) and 8GB of RAM, with the selection of both 128GB or 256GB of inside space for storing.

I performed Asphalt 9: Legends with Oppo’s “Professional Gamer” mode energetic, and whereas there have been a couple of stutters when it was touring very quick, it was completely playable and the telephone didn’t present any signal of getting scorching. The stereo audio system sound good too. A 5,000mAh battery ought to give the Reno 10 loads of standby time, and included within the field is a 67-watt SuperVOOC quick charger, which ought to recharge the cell totally in about 50 minutes. Sadly, there’s no wi-fi charging.

All at a fantastic worth, with a catch

Oppo doesn’t launch its smartphones within the U.S., but it surely introduced the Reno 10 sequence in India a couple of days earlier than asserting the Reno 10 5G within the U.Okay., the place it is going to be accessible beginning August 24 by means of the EE community and Oppo’s personal retailer.

It’s competitively priced at 399 British kilos, which is roughly $505 U.S. This costs it in-between the OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite and OnePlus Nord 3, barely lower than the Samsung Galaxy A54, and about the identical because the Google Pixel 7a.

The Oppo Reno 10 is an efficient deal

Once I opened the field and dealt with the Oppo Reno 10 for the primary time, I had a superb feeling about it. I’m completely satisfied to say this continued after utilizing it for a short while. It’s onerous to argue with the worth, and it’s nice to see a fairly priced telephone ship fascinating options like a 120Hz refresh price, quick charging, 5G, and first rate gaming credentials. You’ll should make concessions about water resistance and wi-fi charging, although.

In the event you’re unwilling to spend an enormous amount of cash in your new telephone, the Oppo Reno 10 is a kind of nice worth gadgets you’re all the time hoping to seek out. It’s value trying out alongside the Pixel 7a and the Galaxy A54.
