A gorgeous budget flagship điện thoại thông minh at the right price.


(Editor"s note: The review has been republished on account of the Reno 5 Pro 5G"s first sale today, 22 January)

20trăng tròn saw a lot of điện thoại thông minh manufacturers jump inkhổng lồ the low-cost flagship territory, or the low over of the premium segment. While Xiaongươi had a big surprise when it announced its Mi 10 5G (Review) (it"s first solid premium contender), the lower-priced Mi 10T Pro (Review) was a delight, given its camera capabilities and cut-throat pricing. Samsung, of all manufacturers, also decided to lớn dip its feet into lớn the segment. It launched the Galaxy S20 FE (Review), which did not vày well in our Review, partially because it can"t part ways with the hot-headed Exynos chipphối in India. And now, we have Oppo.

Launched at Rs 35,990, the Reno 5 Pro 5G takes the risky Samsung route of going with a different chipphối. And it"s not just a brand-new chipmix for the Indian market, but a high-end one with integrated 5G that"s meant khổng lồ level-up and compete with the mighty Snapdragon 865.

But Oppo has another angle here, and that"s kiến thiết. As it stands today, the Reno is the slimmest và the lighdemo of the lot. And while slyên ổn and light is a good thing, it usually translates to heating issues và shorter battery life. Still, I put the Reno 5 Pro through its paces for a few weeks & here is my detailed reviews.

Sllặng and sexy thiết kế with a curvy display

The Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G is the lighkiểm tra smartphone in its segment. Given that its competition – the Mi 10T Pro, Galaxy Sđôi mươi FE & the OnePlus 8T – are quite heavy, the Reno 5 feels lượt thích heaven after using those. This, along with its slyên ổn 7.6 mm waistline (that happens lớn be thinner than the Reno 4 Pro) gives it an excellent hand-feel, which is unheard of in this price range.

I received the “Astral Blue” unit for reviews và it looks quite quality with its shimmery xanh “Panda” glass baông chồng. The two colour variants (“Astral Blue” & “Starry Black”) differ when it comes khổng lồ the materials used at the bachồng. This has been done to get the desired visual effect & I must say, the “Panda” glass with the “Astral Blue” finish felt quite sturdy & did not scratch, nor gather any fingerprints whatsoever. The “Starry Black” finish uses Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3.

The slyên và light design is also possible because of the plastic frame/chassis. It helps bring down the weight of the device, và also lets Oppo’s designers experiment with the top kết thúc of the frame by including a cool-looking glass insert. It’s all in the details, & you can tell that Oppo took its time khổng lồ deliver something special for this segment.

Just lượt thích the Reno 4 Pro, Oppo has managed lớn squeeze in not just an FHD+ OLED display, but one with a 90 Hz refresh rate. The curved edge panel, despite looking similar to the one on the Reno 4 Pro, isn’t the same. It’s quite the upgrade, both in terms of colour reproduction (that’s now warmer & more accurate), & brightness levels (that can touch 800 nits).

This made for a better outdoor viewing experience than the Reno 4 Pro, & definitely delivered when it came khổng lồ those deep blacks while streaming movies in FHD. While Oppo claims that it is HDR10+ capable, Netflix did not let me stream shows in HDR, & the playbaông chồng specifications also mentioned that it could not. Still, the đoạn Clip looks crisp, with deep blacks và the screen gets bright enough when viewed outdoors, whether that’s for movie streaming or gaming. This is a big khuyễn mãi giảm giá, as no other smartphone br& includes such a display in this price bracket, & the 90 Hz refresh rate sweetens the deal for gamers.

Gaming performance falls a bit short

The downsides of going sllặng and light are inevitable. There’s no 3.5 milimet headphone jaông xã and the phone also skips on a stereo dual-speaker thiết lập. Sadly, Oppo does not throw in a 3.5 mm tai nghe adapter, but they bởi provide Type-C earphones in the box, & the audio quality is top-notch. The single speaker is quite loud, but completely lacks bass thanks to lớn the sllặng thiết kế of the điện thoại thông minh.

Another downside of going slim và light is heat. The natural enemy of any flagship điện thoại thông minh, it’s the sole reason why most manufacturers are willing khổng lồ sacrifice design over performance in this price bracket. Still, things are not as bad as I expected them to be.

The Oppo Reno 5 Pro is the first điện thoại thông minh in India khổng lồ paông chồng in MediaTek’s recently announced Dimensity 1000+ chipset. It integrates 5G & is supposed to lớn be a Qualcomilimet Snapdragon 865 alternative, at least on paper.

In day-to-day use, performance is top-notch & I did not face a single hiccup or stutter. You might guess that there was a Snaprồng 865 inside, if Oppo didn’t tell you otherwise.

While benchmarks will tell you that there is a noticeable performance gap between the two flagship chipsets, it’s the gaming performance that reveals the real picture.

Loading up Hotline of Duty: Mobile, the Reno 5 Pro let me run the game smoothly at the mặc định ‘High’ graphics và ‘High’ framerate. The device warmed up a bit but did not interfere with the gaming experience. Crank up the settings to lớn ‘Very High’ (graphics và frame rate), và you will notice how quickly the phone gets hot. It barely took me one ‘Frontline’ tournament lớn get the phone up to 40 degrees. In my second go, I took a risk and continued playing a couple of matches, & noticed dropped frames and slowdowns, something that I expected.

This behaviour was repeated with another popular title, Asphalternative text 9: Legends. Crank up the graphics settings to ‘High Quality’ (with 60 fps ON) và you will notice how the phone warms up (và chipmix throttles down) as the frames start to lớn drop.

In short, this is not a smartphone that’s meant for heavy gaming. But for those who crave a sllặng và light device, it still can run demanding games at mặc định settings without any hiccups. I could have sầu compared the performance of the Reno5 Pro khổng lồ the Mi 10T Pro, but the latter is priced higher by about Rs 5000. If gaming is your thing, then the latter would be a better choice because of the chipmix, the cooling tech & the high 144 Hz refresh rate display with 240 Hz touch sensing.

Silky-smooth software

Oppo recently announced ColorOS 11 based on Android 11. Fortunately, the Reno 5 Pro 5G is one of the first smartphones to get this software out of the box.

I’ve reviewed Oppo ColorOS 11 separately (you can read the Review here), but this is a final consumer build, & things have changed by a bit. Media Player controls that let you switch the output between connected audio devices from the notifications bar, finally makes it here. cảm ứng sensitivity can now be customised while playing games using the trò chơi Space floating window, và it does improve overall response when playing fast-paced FPS titles.

But that’s pretty much it, as everything else remains the same as in the beta builds, including the hard-to-exexinh tươi Flex Drop floating window feature. Still, ColorOS 11 is the king of customisation (with customisable fonts, icons, AOD, dark mode và more) & is also well-optimised for the MediaTek chipmix when it comes khổng lồ day-to-day multi-tasking and app performance. That, combined with the fluid 90 Hz display, makes for a buttery-smooth software experience.

A capable camera

The 64 MPhường. primary camera is the only tăng cấp from the camera on the Reno 4 Pro I reviewed last year. While the camera performance on the Reno 4 was satisfactory, Oppo has taken things up several notches with the Reno 5 Pro in terms of performance.

Overall quality of photos shot in daylight is impressive. Still images come out clean, with the right amount of sharpness và detail. The camera, just lượt thích the Reno 4 Pro’s camera, also has a tendency to overexpose. This is less to bởi with the hardware & more to vày with the AI or software, as it only triggers the HDR (phối lớn Auto) when it"s dead-obvious that there’s work to be done in the scene. In most cases, it does not, & that leads lớn images with plenty of clipped highlights. Whether you are shooting a white bowl with fruit (bowl gets clipped) or a person against a background (white clothing & bright backgrounds get clipped). The photos still look quite good, as Oppo’s algorithms always ensure that the subject is correctly exposed. It’s just the HDR that acts a bit lazy from time to time.

The new sensor also brings faster autofocus & better dynamic range across the board, và this also applies to lớn portrait shots and low light photos.

Post sunset or in dimly lit rooms, photos come out surprisingly well; it’s just that they fall a bit short of dynamic range, with crushed shadows. Noise is also well under control. In fact, in most cases (unless it was really dark) I never needed to use the troubled ‘Night’ mode. I say “troubled” because it almost always delivers blurry images. I’m unclear as lớn why this happens, but it’s possibly down to lớn the image stacking, where the camera may be choosing some blurry frames that ruin the final image. So, if you vày purchase this smartphone, use the ‘Night’ mode only when you can keep the device really steady.

The 32 MPhường selfie camera shoots impressive selfies no matter what the lighting conditions. Edge detection was also spot-on. While the ultra-wide angle camera was useful in daylight, the results were not really usable in low light. The 2 MP macro is solely in place lớn fill up the spec sheet.

The Reno 5 Pro can record 720p & 1080p đoạn Clip at 30 and 60 fps, & 4K video clip at 30 fps. I sorely missed a 4K 60 fps mode, here that would have sầu delivered better clarity and detail in the videos. Video recording is pretty average for a flagship smartphone, because most of the footage I shot turned out quite shaky. I definitely expected something better here, given that phones that cost a few thousands more, offer Clip recording chất lượng that is leagues better. When there’s enough light, 4K footage looks quite good, but with oversaturated colours. The 1080p
30 fps mode delivered better colour with less detail, but better stabilisation.

I also tried out the “Ultra Night” Clip that’s supposed lớn improve sầu detail, clarity và dynamic range when shooting video clip in low light. It works fine on street-lit scenes, but it ruins the video clip in an environment that’s already lit up. In spaces with mood lighting, it cranks up the saturation making the colours look unreal. In short, I was happier with the regular results. Also, it only works at 1080p.

Blazing-fast charging

Sllặng smartphones usually fall short on battery life. I expected the worst when it came lớn the Reno 5 Pro, especially when you consider that flagship MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ chipset inside. But just lượt thích the Reno 4 Pro, the Reno 5 Pro manages lớn impress and delivers a whole day of battery life on a single charge. If you game less, then you will easily manage about a day and half of battery life on a single charge, which is impressive sầu for a device this slim.

More impressive sầu is the in-box 65 W SuperVOOC charger. It fills up that 4350 mAh battery in about 30 minutes, which is the fastest charging tốc độ you can get in this segment! Second in line would be Realme’s X50 Pro (that’s priced a lot higher), followed by everything else.

Should you buy one?

While the Reno 4 Pro found itself in the doldrums soon after launch given its odd pricing (and the existence of the OnePlus Nord) the Reno 5 Pro 5G has certainly done better. It"s managed to carve out its own niđậy in the budget flagship segment (Rs 35,000-45,000) and with that, it"s easy lớn recommkết thúc given that it also looks stunning.


You get a 90 Hz curved edge OLED display, capable 64 MP. camera, sllặng eye-catching kiến thiết, class-leading charging speeds and it’s not heavy on your wallet. Image: Tech2/Sheldon Pinto


Those inkhổng lồ hardcore gaming will have lớn give sầu this beauty a pass, solely because it gets a bit hot và slows down when you max out the graphics. But the rest of it is as good as it gets at Rs 35,990. You get a 90 Hz curved edge OLED display, capable 64 MP.. camera, sllặng eye-catching thiết kế, class-leading charging speeds and it’s not heavy on your wallet.

Still, If you crave sầu more power (especially for gaming) or 8K đoạn phim, and are ok with something chunky, then your obvious choice should be Xiaomi"s Mi 10T Pro that will cost you an additional Rs 5000 (at Rs 39,990).
