Build and Design

The OPPO Reno 10 Pro 5G is build elegantly and similar across all the Reno 10 series, which all focuses on good curvature, making it easy to be held and use it, even with one hand operation. The back of the phone is smooth on the touch with a combination of glass back and plastic frame all together. Measuring at 7.9mm on the thickness, and nope, its not thick at all, in fact this is slim enough that you dont feel much over the weight of 185 grams, which kinda standard given the fact that with the mid tier hardware packed inside, this is still nice to operate. While all sounds great on the form factor, the island camera design is well made with an exception that is thicken out to accommodate the camera modules, making it wobble when placed on the flat surface, making it slightly uncomfortable for certain users who like to place it on the table the whole time and interacting with it, or otherwise use the casing provided which will reduce the wobble.

Display and Audio

A 6.7 inch display is placed in, with 120Hz refresh rate but it’s not adaptive, so you will need to toggle the refresh rates if you need to go lower in order to maybe save some of your battery run time, however that being said, the display quality did not disappoint with no ghost touching and colors represented quite well with it’s AMOLED panel and able to peak up average around 800 nits with HDR10+.

The Audio seems loud too with it’s included single down firing speakers with Real Sound pre set support which you can find it under the sound settings, however that’s about it and I do wish it has dual speaker support, since most mid rangers has one these days.

With all that said, it does support Widevine L1 which means you can enjoy all your streaming upwards HD on apps such as Disney+ or Netflix.


Looking at the back of the phone, you get a pretty reputable SONY IMX890 50MP OIS Camera, followed by a 32MP Telephoto Lens and a 8MP wide angle lens. The front selfie camera is powered by a single 32MP wide angle camera.

Overall the combination of the cameras resulted in one of the formidable contenders in the mid tier segment with good dynamic range and good AI bokeh processing that still be able to compete against most of the surrounding phones with the similar technical specifications. Do take note however the portrait is tad abit slow, so you need to focus it properly, take the picture and wait for abit in stationary till it is completed. Telephoto can support zooms up to 2X with good performance sighted. The front camera is one that you can get in most contending competitors and this one can produce most selfies out clear, so no complains there.

Towards video recording, the phone indeed supports up to 4K at 60FPS but steady mode with the use of stabilization only supported under 1080P 60FPS. That being said the quality is good with the exception of recording in 4K, a slight delay may exhibit if you are moving too fast.

Performance, Experience, Benchmarks

This is the part where some of the specifications and experience may take a hit. The OPPO Reno 10 Pro 5G came equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G 5G SOC, Qualcomm FastConnect 6700 with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of Internal storage. As usual the storage is non expandable, so I guess thats pretty common, just use any of the cloud storage or USB C type drives if you really need to backup your files.

Now the experience, with Android 13 and the latest ColorOS 13 baked in as the OS and UI, the animation and transition is fluid with arguably performance that is still on much with OPPO’s small updates to it while maintains the best of both worlds together, you will still pretty much seeing standard needed Android features and ever famous ColorOS 13 themes in it, along with OPPO customised apps. My only complain is the amount of bloatwares inside, which I guess they do it for the sake of reducing the cost of the phone.

Performance wise, expect low to medium settings for certain games to maintain smoothness in gameplay and most major titles can take on easily without much hiccups. Battery wise expect around 1.5 days of usage with the included 5000MAh capacity, along with typical calls, social media, and games. Recharging takes about an hour from empty to full.

Benchmark indicates the Snapdragon 778G combination still held well in terms of synthetic benchmarks against even some of the 2023 released phones, albeit a dated chipset, daily usage should be fine, just if you are comparing further with latest processors within the same class, it is either comparable or the SD 778G will be slightly slower.

Verdict & Conclusion


The OPPO Reno 10 Pro is a phone that sits between a good camera offerings mixed with a dated processor included, and with our quick experience, we find that it still holds quite well with the optimizations OPPO has baked to the phone, bringing camera as the star of the show and certainly did not lose too much on the daily performance. OPPO will definitely support further on firmware updates and fixes to keep the phone support longer but as long the average app and game releases for the next two years is not overly demanding, you are paying for a RM2199 phone that is somehow a decently companion for all your picture captures, fast video recording and entertainment in mind.
