Oppo Reno 10X zoom 48 megapixel smartphone Review

Conclusion

Conclusion

The Oppo Reno 10X Zoom is an all rounder, be it in the performance and in photography. Being the only smartphone that is based on the Snapdraon 855 and offers a 60X Digital Zoom, it is definitely a good alternative to the Huawei P30 Pro (based on Kirin 980).

The Reno 10X zoom comes with a 4065mAh Battery + VOOC 3.0 Flash Charge. In our test, it can finish charging it within 1 hr 35 mins while it took almost 2 hrs to completely charge up the Pixel 3 XL.

As a photographic centric smartphone, the Oppo Reno 10X Zoom takes excellent photos even at 10X using a mixture of optical and digital. 20X is still acceptable but anything above it really requires steady hands or a tripod to take a shot which may lack details. Taking night shots is easy with is  wide aperture and bigger sensor size smartphones available in the market. We took quite a few shots and the image quality is very good. As compared to the Pixel 3 XL, the colours are less saturated which may need some adjustments through software to attain the punch that most people prefer.

Although I like the idea of mechnically hidding the front lens to give you a full screen bezelless experience, the chances of a malfunction due to mechnical wear and tear cannot be dismissed.

 

The Oppo Reno 10X zoom is now available on Lazada and Qoo10 from S$988It is also retailing on Amazon US retailer from USD 687
