But before we make any preliminary conclusions, let’s take the Reno5 Pro 5G for a spin and see why we expect the Reno5 Pro 5G has its spot within the market and what makes it stand out from the gang .

Unboxing the Oppo Reno5 Pro 5G

The handset comes during a standard box with the acceptable charger and cable. There’s also a transparent silicone case as a bonus and a pair of USB-C headphones, but no USB-C to three .5mm dongle.Oppo Reno5 Pro 5G-GadzetDekho

Design and workplace efficiency.

While the planning and handling are almost just like the Reno4 Pro, there’s one big difference that Oppo doesn’t want you to miss, and that is the Reno Glow glass on the rear . consistent with the corporate , that’s no ordinary frosted glass. It uses the proper amount of magnesium and potassium to grow microscopic pyramid crystals. This way, the rear can catch more light and refract more of it, too, making that specific glow we are talking about. It really does look amazing face to face , and as Oppo suggests, fingerprints are hard to stay . However, the surface makes the phone a touch more slippery than usual.

Aside from the colour , the camera bump makes the phone stand out even as much. The camera bump is layered because the camera lenses stick out even further, a bit like the iPhone 11 and 12-series.
It does feel pretty light, though, tipping the size at just 173g and having a rather thin 7.6mm profile, so using it for long periods isn’t a problem in the least . The curved glass panel to the edges helps with the general feel in hand.

Buttons are well-positioned, provide nice and clicky feedback, and therefore the fingerprint reader is fast, accurate and responsive. On the opposite hand, bezels seem a touch thick, but the curved front glass gives the impression of a way thinner design.

While the handset is formed of premium materials like glass and aluminum for the frame, there is no word on Gorilla Glass, so we assume there is no additional protection for the front panel.

Hardware and performance

As we already stated at the start of the hands-on review, the Oppo Reno5 Pro 5G checks quite few boxes and therefore the specs sheet starts with a powerful 6.55-inch AMOLED display with a 90Hz Refresh Rate at 1080 x 2400px Resolution and also has HDR10+ support.

Oppo says that it can peak at 800 nits, too, and albeit we still haven’t measured it yet, we tend to believe it because it offers great outdoor visibility. Interestingly, the professional and therefore the Pro+ from the Reno5 lineup both share an equivalent OLED panel, so no compromises here with the vanilla version.

The biggest difference comes with the SoC. The standard Pro model, which we’ve here, sports a MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ chipset supporting 5G connectivity and is paired with either 8GB/128GB or 12GB/256GB memory. The storage is UFS 2.1 as against the much faster UFS 3.1 on the Pro+.

Another big difference between the professional and therefore the Pro+ is that the camera setup. The Pro+ employs a more versatile and advanced camera setup mostly because it’s a 13MP telephoto camera. Anyway, the one here sports a 64MP main camera with f/1.7 aperture while the ultrawide is 8MP with f/2.2 aperture. Sadly, the specs sheet reads a 115-degree field of view, which, to be frank, is not wide, to start with. The other two cameras are for depth sensing and macro shots, both with 2MP resolution. Lastly, we have a 32MP f/2.4 camera on the front for selfies.

Now, when it involves battery endurance, our initial tests suggest that it won’t be record-breaking by any means. We had about 4 hours of Screen-On time at 90Hz by mostly browsing. The 4,350 mAh battery, though, can charge really fast using the provided 65W adapter within the box. It can go from 0 to 100% in under half-hour , while a 15-minute charge gets you 61% of the juice back.

Software and features

Although Oppo’s ColorOS 11.1 is predicated on Android 11, the custom skin doesn’t depart too faraway from its previous iteration. Sure, there are more customization options round the UI now, but the general feel is analogous . However, we did notice that Oppo has made room for Google’s Phone and Messages apps.
More importantly, we wanted to ascertain how the HRR display behaves and see if the software uses some quite adaptive refresh rate.

No matter the app or the sub-menu, the refresh rate drops to around 30 and even lower once you stop touching the screen, and that is true for the 60Hz mode also . We also are happy to report that the display tones right down to 60Hz when watching YouTube videos albeit the 90Hz mode is active. According to us, that is the correct thanks to handle video players.

The Reno5 Pro 5G is prepared for a few mobile gaming also . The software allows you to tinker with quite little bit of settings through the sport Space feature. It even allows you to save on some power while gaming if you’re low on battery.


Oppo emphasizes the video capabilities but has no support for [email protected] video . So the company hopes that the so-called AI Highlight Video feature will structure for that. The software analyzes the scene (much just like the AI for stills) and enables Ultra Night Mode for low-light scenery or Live HDR for broader dynamic during the day. There’s also an inventive Monochrome Video mode that has three filters – Crimson (read red), Forest Green (read green) and just Blue.
