OPPO has recently released two Reno series smartphones – the Reno10 and Reno10 Pro 5G.

Packed with hardware that would make other, more expensive, flagship devices feel embarrassed (looking at you Apple) and the biggest wow factor of the Reno10 Pro 5G being the photography specs.

STG received a Reno10 Pro 5G to give a run through and asides from the usual tech rundown and testing of the hardware, it was the camera that was the ultimate standout.

OPPO Reno10 Pro 5G

The Reno10 Pro 5G boasts 256GB storage aligned with 12GB RAM and all of your digital goodness is processed by a Qualcomm SM7325 Snapdragon 778G 5G.

Asides from the processor being of slightly lower spec than the current Snapdragon Gen 2, the Reno10 Pro 5G is near to a top tier device.

As mentioned the camera’s are the biggest (but not only) selling point of OPPO’s latest Reno.

OPPO Reno10 Pro 5G

For the front selfie you’ve got a super generous 32MP that can record vids @ 1080p / 30fps.

The rear camera’s housing is very unique to this model and here you’re future proofed for your smart phone snaps.

The split lens bay has a 50MP wide with multi-direction, 32MP telephoto and to round out the triple cameras, a 8MP ultra-wide.

OPPO Reno10 Pro 5G - Night mode

Able to record vids at 4K @ 30fps this is the vloggers dream phone with the multi-view camera mode (film with both front and rear camera’s simultaneously).

OPPO has added a Portrait mode along with a host of usual suspects, including night shooting wizardry.

Portrait turns out professional quality bokeh pics that no other smart phone comes close to being able to achieve. Ideal for taking snaps of your demanding fur babies.

This studio quality snapping mode can churn out some of the most vividly detailed shots I have seen from a smart phone.

The camera on the Reno10 Pro 5G is second to none.

The phone itself is large at a 6.7 inch AMOLED screen with an almost zero bezel.

Running the latest version of Android with OPPO’s own ColorOS overlayed, which comes with very little bloatware and has a light footprint on your internal storage.

For the gamers out there (including me) you’ll get a 120Hz refresh, although I have to admit that the default of 60Hz looked just as crisp.

Given the lower processor I wondered if a few of the console quality titles would stutter. Nope, the likes of Call of Duty, Pascal’s Wager, Diablo Immortal all played smooth.

OPPO Reno10 Pro 5G - Gaming

This makes the Reno10 Pro 5G a cost effective gaming phone.

Battery wise OPPO didn’t hold out.

A very decent 4600mAh powercell that is also able to be quick charged with the supplied 80 watt AC adaptor via SUPERVOOC (yep OPPO have included a mains power brick).

Honestly, the OPPO Reno10 Pro 5G teeters on a flagship device and it most certainly is the top of the Reno series at the time of writing this review.

OPPO Reno10 Pro 5G

With its photography prowess it outshines OPPO’s current top device the Find X5 Pro.

OPPO have packed so much goodness in to the Reno10 Pro 5G that it seems underpriced.

Shoot professional video, snap studio quality photos and equipped with the juice to last a couple of days between charges.

At its current RRP – and when compared to what other manufacturers price theirs at (almost double) the OPPO Reno10 Pro 5G is not only in the affordable bracket (even in this current cost of living crisis) it’s also the current top mobile-photography smart phone. Ever.
