OPPO Malaysia has teased the release of the new Reno series lineup, OPPO Reno8 T 5G and OPPO Reno8 T 4G variant. Does the OPPO Reno8 T 5G worth the price as a premium midrange device? Let’s find out.

 

Design


When it comes to the design of the device, the OPPO Reno8 T 5G retains its OPPO Glow design which offers a premium sleek look device with a stylish appearance to cater to the needs of youth these days.


Unlike other competitors, the OPPO Glow design keeps both aesthetics and the best user experience where the back of the device does not attract fingerprints and appears to be more scratch resistant.


The Reno8 T 5G weighs about 171g and has 7.7mm slim bezels, making it extremely light and easy to hold. Also, the Reno8 T 5G is available in two colors: Midnight Black and Sunrise Gold, my review unit being the latter.

 

Display


The OPPO Reno8 T 5G equips a 6.7 inches curved AMOLED display with an FHD resolution of 2412 x 1080 and with a punch hole notch. Therefore, you can expect vivid colors shown on your Reno8 T 5G.


In terms of cover glass, the Reno8 T 5G uses a Dragontrail Star 2 protective glass instead of Gorilla Glass. Yet, the AGC DT-Star 2 is able to withstand scratches and damages in everyday use so you do not have anything to worry about.


Additionally, the display can support up to 120Hz refresh rate and 360Hz touch sampling rate for a smoother user experience thanks to how responsive it is.

 

Camera


As for the camera, the Reno8 T 5G rocks a dual-ring camera module with a 3-camera setup, featuring a 108MP main camera, 2MP depth camera, and 2MP microlens. Thanks to the 108MP camera, the device is able to preserve the details of the image, allowing you to crop the pictures if needed.


Here are a few pictures taken with the Reno8 T 5G under bright conditions.


I found quite an unusual camera feature on the Reno8 T 5G which is the microscope feature. Surprisingly, the 40x microlens is able to capture the tiniest detail and texture of the subject, For example, you can see every tiny thread on the surface of the desk mat, the pixels on the monitor, and the textures on the mandarin orange.

However, while taking low-light pictures, the result was dull. Most image capture requires a longer stability time to allow it to capture more light and prevent blurry images. Although the night mode performs decently, still it doesn’t make the Reno8 T 5G a bad device for its cameras.


One thing I wanted to point out about the slightly raised camera module eliminates the chances of dust getting stuck around the camera which annoys users a lot while cleaning.

 

Performance


The OPPO Reno8 T 5G is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 5G processor and comes with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage which is expandable for up to 1TB using the microSD card.


Do note that the Reno8 T 5G also comes with a RAM expansion feature which allocates another 4GB ~ 8GB external memory for your device if you have tons of applications running in the background.


The Reno8 T 5G runs ColorOS 13 which allows multitasking much more efficiently, and more customization on your home screen, lock screen, icons, and AOD customization for Android stans.


Furthermore, the Reno8 T 5G houses a 4800 mAh battery capacity supported with a 67W SUPERVOOC fast charge. I have the opportunity to test out the 67W fast charge on the Reno8 T 5G, it only takes around 20 minutes to juice up the device starting from 43% to 100%. Thus, there is no need to worry about not having enough time to charge your device in hurry.

 

Buy or no buy?


The OPPO Reno8 T 5G is a considerably good option if you’re looking for a flagship-level curved AMOLED display smartphone with its fashionable design. The hardware and software make everyday usage a pleasure on the Reno8 T 5G.


After all, performance-oriented users might be not satisfied with this as the Snapdragon 695 fails to meet up the requirements of popular mobile games with fancy graphics.
