Oppo Reno 10 Pro 5G Review: Many Hits, but a Few Misses

The common factor between the

The ultra-wide camera’s colour temperature varies compared to the main camera with slightly warmer tones. There is definitely a lack of details, especially around the edges but the camera does a good job with colours and dynamic range.

You also get a 2X telephoto camera which is not as common in the segment. I really liked the telephoto camera’s performance, although there is room for improvement. You get good details and the dynamic range performance is also quite good. Again, the colour temperature is different as telephoto images are slightly cooler compared to the primary camera’s samples.

Portrait mode’s edge detection is excellent. However, the primary camera’s portrait mode makes human skin look a bit red. The telephoto camera’s portrait mode performance, on the other hand is pretty impressive when it comes to colours, edge detection and details. A thing to note though is that there is a shutter lag while taking portrait mode shots, so you need to keep the phone steady and make sure that the subject does not move until you hear the shutter sound.

The front camera does a decent job when it comes to getting the skin tone right. Edge detection in portrait mode shots is a hit or miss as I noticed the algorithm blurring out my ear and hair. Low-light portrait mode shots expose the subject quite well and offer good blur, but the details are slightly soft.

In terms of video, the Oppo Reno 10 Pro can record up to 4K 30fps videos using the rear camera and 1080p 30fps on the front. The rear camera’s footage offers good stability, details and exposure. Video quality from the front camera takes a hit when it comes to dynamic range performance.


Oppo Reno 10 Pro is perhaps one of the best designed smartphones under Rs 40,000. It not only looks good but it is also well-built and has a good in-hand feel. The phone scores big points for its good display and battery life. The performance unit is passable for the price as the competition offers far better value. Where the Reno 10 Pro 5G has a slight edge over the competition is its versatile camera system, which also features a good quality telephoto lens.

However, the one area where it struggles is the software experience, which currently does not match the premium price. The phone is also not IP-rated and only has a single speaker.

All in all, if you are looking for a phone which has a flagship-grade design and display, and a versatile camera setup, you can consider getting the Oppo Reno 10 Pro 5G. On the other hand, if you want premium performance, a good software experience, and are okay with missing out on a telephoto camera, you have plenty of options such as the OnePlus 11R (Review), OnePlus Nord 3 (Review) and iQoo Neo 7 Pro (Review).
