Recently, OPPO has unveiled two smartphones under the Reno series — the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom. This smartphone series aims to the people who are into the creative but of course, these smartphones also pack a power inside and also a really unique design. Check out what we think about OPPO’s flagship smartphone below.
OPPO Reno 10x Zoom Review: Design and hardware
The OPPO Reno 10x Zoom’s design is one of the best design that the company has ever made on a smartphone. The materials used in the smartphone is premium to hold and the design of the smartphone is something that I love to look at.
At the back of the smartphone is where you can find the triple-lens camera and surprisingly, the smartphone doesn’t have a protruding camera but in case you’re worried about scratching the glass of the camera well, you’ll be happy to know that there’s a small protruding dot at the back of the smartphone so the glass of the camera won’t touch the surface.
The smartphone is pretty big too as we got a 6.6-inch display. Yes, the smartphone is pretty massive and it’s slippery because of the glass build of the smartphone but thanks to its curves at the side of the smartphone, holding the smartphone is tolerable. Also, there’s an included case in the box that has a premium feel but it adds to the thickness of the smartphone.
There’s no 3.5mm headphone jack which isn’t surprising as the OPPO Find X doesn’t have one too so you have to rely on the included earphones with USB-C port or you can use a dongle for it. Regarding the audio, the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom the does a great job on that one.
OPPO Reno 10x Zoom Review: Display
Surprisingly, OPPO didn’t use a curved display for the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom but personally, I love that as this one is better for me when it comes to gaming. The display of the smartphone is quite immersive as we got a 6.6-inch Full HD+ display in here. There’s a 93.1% screen-to-body ratio and again, it’s pretty to look at and it’s very immersive.
The AMOLED display of the smartphone also helped in producing beautiful and vivid colors on the smartphones and the blacks on the smartphone are good. Overall, despite having a Full HD+ display, and a non-curved one, the display of the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom is pretty awesome.
OPPO Reno 10x Zoom Review: Battery Life
The OPPO Reno 10x Zoom got a 4065mAh battery and I’m pretty happy with the results that I got on the smartphone. In our PC Mark Battery test, we got a score of 10 hours and 57 minutes which is great for a flagship smartphone. In my usage, I’ve been using the smartphone from 10 AM up to 9 PM before asking for a charger.
Speaking of the charger, the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom is using VOOC 3.0 Fast Charging and unfortunately, it isn’t as fast as the one on the OPPO R17 Pro’s SuperVOOC Fast charging but its 20W VOOC 3.0 Fast Charger will do just fine for me but again, it’s just half as fast as the SuperVOOC fast charging.
OPPO Reno 10x Zoom Review: Software and Performance
The OPPO Reno 10x Zoom still uses Color OS 6 and it’s running on Android 9 Pie. Well, the UI of the smartphone is fast, and it’s very user-friendly. If you’re familiar with other OPPO smartphones, the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom will do just fine for you. But of course, there are still some apps included on the smartphone but don’t worry, there’s plenty of storage here with 256GB storage.
The smartphone might be marketed as a great camera smartphone but of its amazing features is its performance. No, I’m not just talking about the processor of the smartphone but also because of its overall experience.
First, the smartphone packs a Snapdragon 855 processor and 8GB of RAM and in my tests, I didn’t experience any problems with the smartphone when it comes to gaming. Second, the smartphone comes with triple cooling technology and when playing games on the smartphone, I notice that the smartphone is way cooler compared to other smartphones with the same chipset.
We all know that the Snapdragon 855 is untouchable today but do check out our gaming review of the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom below:

OPPO Reno 10x Zoom Review: Camera
So here is everyone’s favorite feature of the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom — the camera. Why? Because this is the only smartphone that can zoom up to 60x which beats Huawei’s P30 Pro at 50x but the question remains, how does the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom perform in our tests?
First, let’s discuss the camera of the smartphone. The OPPO Reno 10x Zoom features a 48MP main camera + 8MP ultra wide-angle camera and a 13MP periscope lens for zooming. At the front, there’s the 16MP shark fin-style pop-up camera.
The pop-up camera of the smartphone performs well in our selfies and most of the shots are decent.
With the main camera, the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom has the best camera in all of OPPO smartphones. The details are good, sharp, and the colors are well. I can say the same with the wide-angle lens but of course, it doesn’t have the same quality as the main camera of the smartphone.
Zooming is one of its best features. In my shots, the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom can do up to 60x zooming on the smartphone however, you can easily notice in the photos that it’s using digital zoom and the details can’t be captured that well.
Overall, the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom is the best camera smartphone that OPPO has created. The zoom feature of the smartphone is really good
OPPO Reno 10x Zoom Review: Verdict
The OPPO Reno 10x Zoom is the best smartphone that OPPO has ever made. It’s innovative and the smartphone is beautiful thanks to its design. Inside the smartphone is a powerful camera that has the chops for zooming and also a Snapdragon 855 processor that can do all the things that you need.
However, using the smartphone is a little bit slippery so I suggest that you use your case with it and there’s no IP68 water certification on this smartphone. Nonetheless, the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom is one of the best smartphones out there and I can say that the Php45,990 price tag of this smartphone is surely worth the price thanks to its powerful hardware and also the camera.
