Oppo Reno 10X Zoom, is this the best from Oppo?



Mow the first thing we have to look at is the beautiful display. We have got pretty much no bezels. It is a 6.6 inch OLED display, with a full HD+ resolution, and it looks absolutely stunning. We have got great viewing angles and around a 93.1 percent screen to body ratio, which is one of the highest screen to body ratios out there. Now in order to achieve this very high screen to body ratio, without having it compromising like a notch or something, we do have a pivot rising module.

Front camera

When you go on to the front facing camera, this thing pops up. It is kind of like a shark fin with a very interesting implementation. Now this module rises automatically within 0.8 seconds and it has got a very smooth motion. It has a 16 megapixel front facing camera, with an F 2.0 aperture as well as portrait mode 2.0. Now as well as maximising that body to screen ratio, another advantage of having a module like this is privacy. So you always know when the front facing camera is active. Moreover this phone is easily available online with great deals and you can buy this using Shopclues Coupon at discounted prices.

Of course we install lots of different apps these days. Some of those applications require permissions to your cameras, and when you are flicking through that you might not even see that. With the Oppo Reno, that is always going to be hidden. The front facing camera is always going to be hidden unless you physically want to use it. So that is definitely an advantage.


In terms of durability, this rising camera module has been tested over 300,000 times. And it can also detect the state of the phone. So if the phone is dropped then it is going to automatically retract. We do not actually have many units with us so we are going to stick with the words from the manufacturer and not drop our phone.

Rear camera

Now if we move over on to the back, you will see that the module also has a flash, and then we have got a triple rear facing camera setup. Now this consists of a primary 48 megapixel camera with an F 1.7 aperture, optical image stabilisation and has a very large sensor size. But in addition to that, you also have an ultra-wide camera which is eight megapixels and this is something you will like a lot. It lets you get in so much more into your shots.

And finally you have a 13 megapixel telephoto camera with optical image stabilisation and this is going to give you up to 10 times hybrid zoom. Now what is really impressive is that even though we have got such a high level of zoom there is no camera bump. The cameras are flushed in the back and this is something I really do like. It is achieved using periscope technology, so there is actually mirrors within the device which take the camera signal, and go vertical rather than horizontal.


In addition to that you will also get this really nice gradient finish here at the back which looks very slick. And then we have got a two tone glass finish here at the back. So we have got glossy glass in the middle and then we have got this mist glass around the device which gives it a very unique look. And it is 3d gorilla glass six, so the edges and the back are actually curved in which makes this a lot more comfortable to hold. Now taking a further look around the device, we do have an in display fingerprint scanner which works really well being super-fast.

Other Physical Specs

And even though we have got such a high screen to body ratio, we still do have stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support. On is here in the earpiece and one is bottom firing. As well as the bottom have a USB type C port. And then we have got a sim card tray. Now what is interesting about the sim card tray is that you can either have two SIM cards or one SIM card and one SD card. So you can expand the storage on here which is great but you can get up to 256 gigabytes of storage internally which means you probably won’t even need to use that SD card slot, but it is definitely nice to have.

On the right hand side there is a power button and on the left we have got the volume button and we do have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 with up to 8 gigs of RAM and for software we do have Android Pie with color OS 6. And for the battery we have got a large 4065 MaH battery and you get super-fast charger with the pack as well.
