OPPO makes a comeback as the self-proclaimed “Portrait Expert” with the release of a brand new Reno series focused mainly on Portrait Photography. The brand has stayed consistent in providing premium devices with powerful specs, but at affordable prices. This continues with the OPPO Reno10 5G.
This smartphone is the first in this new series, launched alongside the OPPO Reno10 Pro 5G and OPPO Reno10 Pro+ 5G. While all three are packed with a variety of features, the common highlight of the series is a dedicated Telephoto Portrait Camera capable of capturing clean and crisp pictures.
The OPPO Reno10 5G sports a sophisticated, yet simple aesthetic with a premium sheen. Whether it’s the Silvery Grey or Ice Blue colorway, the Reno10 5G will definitely be to your liking. The sturdy hard plastic exterior’s matte finish isn’t a fingerprint magnet, so you’ll be relieved to know that you can go caseless if you wish to show off your device.
The Reno10 5G’s main camera setup boasts a special CD-like pattern metal finish opposite the telephoto and ultra-wide lenses which are housed inside a black glass module. Overall, this provides a nice touch to the backside’s design.
The OPPO Reno10 5G utilizes a 6.7” (2412 × 1080) 3D Curved AMOLED Display with a 93% screen-to-body ratio, offering a generous amount of viewing real estate to further appreciate its display quality.
The display of the Reno10 5G offers excellent color reproduction as well as a maximum brightness of up to 950 nits. The HDR10+ certification also means a better entertainment experience, such as when viewing your favorite Netflix shows.
The display of the OPPO Reno10 5G also sports a 120Hz refresh rate, which makes both gaming and browsing the device a much smoother experience.
Lastly, the Reno10 5G is also equipped with dual stereo speakers for an optimal entertainment and gaming experience. For maximum immersion when gaming or watching, the phone’s Ultra Volume mode will allow you to safely crank the volume up to 200% without worrying about any crackling or hissing.
The Reno10 5G sports pro-level photography capabilities with its triple-rear cameras, which is composed of a 64-megapixel ultra-clear main shooter, a 32-megapixel Sony IMX709 RGBW sensor telephoto portrait camera with 2x optical zoom, and a 8-megapixel Sony IMX355 ultra-wide camera. The trio of cameras give you multiple options and complete control for creating great photos, from stunning landscapes to beautiful portraits.
The Reno10 5G produces excellent quality images for its daytime shots, featuring a more subdued but natural color reproduction. The AI Mode provides a nice pop in color, and this can be further enhanced with the variety of filters included in the phone’s camera app. The Bokeh Flare Portrait filter is a standout, providing even more blur to the backgrounds of your subject to further enhance portraits.
The OPPO Reno10 5G’s 32-megapixel front-facing wide camera is perfect for vlogging and taking better selfies. The front-facing camera doesn’t come with the main shooter’s Sony IMX709 sensor, but you do get the slew of portrait filters. For more artistic and dramatic selfies, this is definitely the one to use.
For those looking to vlog, the main camera can shoot up to 4K at 30fps, while the selfie camera can capture videos up to 1080p at 30fps.
The OPPO Reno10 5G is more than reliable when it comes to everyday tasks. It comes equipped with a 6nm MediaTek Dimensity 7050 5G chipset along with 8GB of expandable RAM and 128GB/256GB of internal memory. Daily tasks will be a breeze thanks to the smartphone’s chipset optimized to work smoothly with OPPO’s ColorOS 13.
This configuration allows the device to run the most popular apps and mobile games without issue. Users will be able to play most games on the Reno10 5G, and both the 120Hz refresh rate and AMOLED display help in making for a great experience. The phone’s graphics settings can be adjusted to get more demanding titles to run smoothly.
The OPPO Reno10 5G boasts a large 5000mAh battery, which can be powered up from 0 to 100% in as little as 47 minutes, thanks to a 67W SuperVOOC Flash Charger. This is a massive step up, as 67W charging was once a feature you could only find in flagship devices.
This battery of the Reno10 5G can last an entire day with medium to heavy use. OPPO’s proprietary Battery Health Engine helps extend battery life by up to 1600 charge and discharge cycles or roughly four years of good battery condition under typical use.
The OPPO Reno10 5G offers a whole lot in terms of pricing, performance, and quality. If you’re in the market for a great mid-range smartphone as an awesome daily driver with pro-level photography capabilities, then this smartphone is definitely worth considering.
Get the OPPO Reno10 5G with a Smart Signature Device Plan 999 with a one-time cash out of P4,600 and P200 monthly amortization for 24 months. Enjoy 5 GB open access data, unli all-net calls and text, and 50 minutes calls to PLDT.
