OPPO Reno8 Pro:
OPPO is well known for its selfie-centric devices. It reigned supreme in the affordable segment. The company isolated itself into the newer, costlier price range. It now offers everything under the sun including foldable, premium Android flagships, and even flagship killers.
Recently OPPO launched Reno8 Pro which flaunts a familiar yet desirable spec sheet. The MediaTek Dimensity 8100 SoC will drive the device. There’s available power-packed Android smartphone in the market right now which begs the question about Reno8 Pro. The chipset grinds together with fast LPDDR5 memory and storage of UFS 3.1 the chipset’s capabilities in detail find it to be on par with Qualcomm’s high-end offerings. The Reno8 Pro drafts everyday tasks i.e. browsing the web, scrolling one’s social media feed, or multitasking between a dozen or so apps. The handset’s gaming performance impresses as much as the device running. It contains 12GB of RAM and 256GB of fast UFS 3.1 storage. The Reno8 Pro also has an inspiring 32MP Quad-Bayer selfie camera furnished with autofocus. The other cameras are also appear good on paper, it has 50MP of primary snapper, 8MP ultrawide, and a 2MP macro.
OPPO’s design team impressed the audience with its stylish aesthetics. Reno8 Pro’s design draws inspiration from a handful of different phones. The back of the device, for instance, seems like a cross between the One Plus 10R and the OPPO Find X5.
That is enough to say, the OPPO Reno 8 Pro shows flair and the device has considerable flaunt value. It feels premium as well. which can be accredited to its glass sandwich design and chamfered aluminum frame. The chassis feels sturdy and robust and the device comes layered with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 on the front too, which is great. And, similar to the OnePlus 10R, the Reno8 Pro crafts with a plane casing which allows consumers to hold it. Furthermore, the device tips the scales at 183 grams and as a result, is among the most one-hand friendly phone in its segment.
The Reno8 Pro features a USB Type-C port at the bottom, along with a speaker grid. The power button is on right side of the hand set’s. The volume rocker is on the left fascia. The secondary speaker settled inside the earpiece cavity. The handset features speedy biometrics. It didn’t come across any issues with the unit’s in-display fingerprint sensor or facial recognition tech during a turn with the phone. And, those who prefer texting rather calling will find the Reno8 Pro’s X-axis linear motor to their liking as well. To wit, the feedback is tight and the vibration motor doesn’t rattle when you type either.
Display, Camera, Batteries
The smartphone gets a large 6.7 inches AMOLED display. The resolution of 1080 x 2412 pixels works out to around 394ppi. Oppo promotes a peak brightness of 900 nits. It can refresh at 120Hz. It also allows buyers to lock the display’s refresh rate at 120Hz as well. , you can lounge in creamy charming simulations and UI alterations at all times. The screen border is extremely narrow bezels. The display on the Reno8 Pro is also 10-bit, which indicates it can deliver an enormous 1 billion colors.
The Oppo Reno8 Pro has a compact camera setup. Particularly focusing on selfie experience and video capture. The main 50MP, f/1.8 snapper on the back uses the Sony IMX766 sensor and there’s an 8MP, f/2.2 ultra wide camera on the back. Oppo advanced large in the selfie section for the Reno8 Pro. There is a 32MP, f/2.4 selfie snapper on the phone. It builds on the Sony IMX709 sensor (1/2.74″ size with 0.8 µm individual pixels).The OPPO Reno 8 Pro has equipped a 4500 mAh battery that wires 80W fast charging.
The Oppo Reno8 Pro can bud up to 4K@30fps on its main camera. The ultrawide is capped at 1080p, Depending on your preference, you can either capture videos in the default h.264 codec or save some space at the expense of higher compression and use h.265 (HEVC). 1080p videos from the ultrawide camera grip up an appealing fit. There is no noticeable noise in good light and the colors are pretty well matched with the main camera. The pallet is a bit grayer still. The selfie video from the 32MP cam is partial to 1080p. It looks covered but ordinary. The detail and colors are good, but life is a bit of an issue.
The Reno8 Pro can charge at up to 80W highest with the SUPERVOOC charger. We coped to get the Reno8 Pro from the dead up to a big 90% charge in only 30 minutes. But It took fairly 42 minutes to charge in full, which is certainly very rapid.
It has a hybrid stereo speaker setup with one dedicated speaker on the bottom of the device. The earpiece acts like the other channel.
The Reno8 Pro liners on the latest Color OS v12.1 on top of Android 12. Color OS has a lot of customizations when it comes to the AOD. The Special features are the familiar Smart Sidebar and Flexible windows functions. Both are tailored to better multitasking. The sidebar deals with quick access to some of your favorite apps when turned on.
I should also opine that the phone’s performance is not afflicted by any curbing issues either. The Reno8 Pro runs with MediaTek Dimensity 8100-MAX chipset. Which is uncommon silicon. We have only seen in OnePlus 10R so far. It includes a 4x Cortex-A78@2.85 GHz and 4x Cortex-A55@2.0GHz CPU setup, a Mali-G610 MC6 GPU, MediaTek Image 780 ISP, and a MediaTek APU 580 AI processing unit, and above an LPDDR5 memory switch all filled on a 5nm TSMC node. The device constant 84 percent of its crowning performance in the CPU Control trial. And it yielded 98.4 percent stability in 3D Mark’s Extreme Stress test. In battery backup, the smartphone’s 4,500mAh cell saw me through the end of a work day. I be an average of around 4.5 hours of screen on time whilst daily driving the set.
The Reno8 Pro makes for a reliable pocket-shooter. It is plenty capable of clicking IG-ready snaps. The photos tend to exhibit saturated colors. At the daylight HDR blasts, the sensor inclines to crush the shadows in a bid to output a more dramatic shot. I should also add that pixel-binned images appear a tad over-sharpened at a closer crop as well. The pictures deal passable details and decent experience metering. The device seldom overexposed the sky and was quick to latch on to the focus as well. The device’s secure rapidity was fairly enough. And you can get away with a sharp shot of a moving subject with the phone. I will add, that the smartphone’s lowlight images leave something desirable. Even with the night approach value enabled, the sensor resolution the shadows correctly. Furthermore, the images were replete with noise too.
The device is plenty capable of snapping IG-ready shatters. The photos tend to exhibit excessively soaked colors. If you look at the daytime HDR shots. More on, the sensor inclines to crush the shadows in a bid to output a more intense shot. I should also add that pixel-binned images appear a tad over sharpened at a closer crop as well. The images suggest satisfactory particulars and good contact metering. The device rarely overexposed the sky and was fast to handle on to the focus as well. The sensor’s shutter speed was up to the level. You can get away with a sensibly strident shot of a moving subject with the phone. However, the smartphone’s lowlight images consent something to be preferred. In fact, the night mode utility enabled, the sensor didn’t resolve the shadows properly. Furthermore, the images were full with noise too.
The OPPO Reno8 Pro is an expert mid-ranger and gets some of the things right. Its design, though a bit encouraged, looks mesmeric. The device deals a deluxe in-hand feel as well. Besides, OPPO has left no grit unturned in the display and performance section any. The device’s camera arrangement could’ve been improved and above I would’ve loved to get an OIS-assisted main sensor with the phone. Additionally, though the phone charges impressively fast, the unit’s battery backup is safe at top. Totally believed and done, if anybody don’t think of settle down for a less quality design, one should choice the OnePlus 10R, which is funded similar specifications and bids a well bang for the buck. However, end-users seeing to make a splash with their ensuing phone will find the Reno8 Pro to their fancy as well.
