The OPPO Reno10 Pro 5G is an excellent choice for OPPO fans who desire similar features to the high-spec model, OPPO Reno10 Pro+ 5G, but have a limited budget. While the Reno10 Pro 5G may have a few limitations compared to its higher-end counterpart, it still delivers impressive functionality in terms of camera capabilities and overall performance. So, without further ado, let's explore what the OPPO Reno10 Pro 5G has to offer!
The OPPO Reno10 Pro 5G boasts a similarly close design compared to the Reno10 Pro+ 5G variant with only a slight difference in the camera module, instead of having the "Powered by Mari Silicon" wording, the Reno10 Pro 5G gets the "AI Portrait Cam" on the pill size platform.
The OPPO Reno10 Pro 5G comes in the same color options as the Pro+ version, namely Glossy Purple and Silvery Grey. However, for today's review, we have the Glossy Purple variant of the Reno10 Pro 5G. Despite sharing a similar design with the Reno10 Pro+ 5G, the Reno10 Pro 5G also offers a delightful grip and feels comfortable to hold.
Apart from that, the Reno10 Pro 5G is equipped with a 6.7-inches OLED 3D Curved Display with a resolution of 2772 x 1240 on a huge 93% screen-to-body ratio for its narrow bezels display to provide a true viewing experience to OPPO fans.
In addition, the display also features a 120Hz fast refresh rate that can be adjusted to 60Hz to extend battery life but loses out on the smooth transitions between apps so it's a bit of a trade-off. Furthermore, the display's peak brightness can reach 950 nits, guaranteeing colorful and vivid graphics even under strong lighting environments.
The OPPO Reno10 Pro 5G triple-camera module houses a 50MP Ultra-Clear OIS Main Camera, 32MP Telephoto Portrait Camera, and an 8MP, 112° Ultra-Wide-Angle Camera. I bet you're familiar with OPPO's newest Reno lineup, Reno10 Series, which aims to bring the best smartphone photography experience with its cutting-edge Ultra-Clear Portrait Camera System.
In this case, the OPPO Reno10 Pro 5G features a 32MP Telephoto Portrait Camera with Sony's IMX709 flagship sensor that enhances the overall visual clarity and color accuracy resulting in authentic picture quality. Additionally, both front cameras (32MP Selfie Camera) and rear cameras (32MP Telephoto Portrait Camera) are equipped with the IMX709 sensor, allowing you to capture crisp portrait picture quality that is on par with the flagship cameras!
The Reno10 Pro 5G's remarkable camera capabilities are not only limited to portraits and selfies, it is able to deliver high res pictures with the 50MP Ultra-Clear Main Camera, IMX890 flagship sensor. For instance, the pictures captured during the day appear to be soft and realistic, while those taken at night remain a level of natural contrast.
The OPPO Reno10 Pro 5G is powered by a mid-range processor - Snapdragon 778G 5G. You'll see a variety of smartphones using the same processor in this market range. Though, it can handle games with fancy graphics like Honkai: Star Rail. Therefore, we put the Reno10 Pro 5G on the AnTuTu Benchmark (V10.0.1-OB1). As a result, the Reno10 Pro 5G scores a total of 595, 858, which is an average score for smartphones with the same chipset.
As for the Honkai: Star Rail gaming experience, the Reno10 Pro 5G manages to achieve an average of 48 fps on Medium settings, 60 fps. Overall, the transition when using skills or the character menu is quite smooth, there's a minor stutter in between, but it has no effect on the game.
On top of that, the Reno10 Pro 5G is available in a configuration with 12GB RAM and 256GB ROM. Similar to the Reno10 Pro+ 5G model, it supports RAM Expansion ranging from a minimum of 4GB RAM to a maximum of 12GB RAM, resulting in a total of 24GB RAM.
With the increasing number of trendy apps entering the smartphone market, it can be said that the OPPO RAM Expansion is a great feature that helps to keep your phone running smoothly from time to time.
The OPPO Reno10 Pro 5G packs a sizeable 4600 mAh battery capacity that supports 80W SUPERVOOC Flash Charge technology to keep the device going all day. What's more, OPPO even implemented the industry-leading SUPERVOOC S Power Management Chip to maintain battery health over a longer period of use.
