Oppo Reno8 series reviewed
This phone was new to our testers, but out of the box they found it easy to use, and intuitive to pick up and play around with. They liked the quality of the camera, and the ability to take pictures both ways at the same time they found fun and a bit quirky. In some ways this reflected their overall user experience with the phone.
In terms of pricing it is coming in at the upper end of the midrange market if you know what we mean. In terms of comparison, it is not a bargain basement phone by any mark, and with that you get a better level of performance and quality. At the same time it is still significantly cheaper than a Pixel, Samsung or an iPhone. This does then offer an appealing proposition, as long as the phone is still performing well 12 months and beyond later.
For the all the more immediate road testing our team were very happy with it, and, as they enjoyed that aspect of using this phone, we are all quite curious how it will continue to perform by Q2 and beyond in 2023. For the moment it is an interesting product to use, and therefore a company that we will be keeping an eye out for.

The OPPO Reno series features great camera capabilities and a unique design; and coming to the newest generation, Reno8 Pro 5G and Reno8 5G employ the latest camera innovation for users to capture their best moments even in the most challenging lighting scenarios.
Both devices feature Dual Sony Flagship Sensors, including the 32MP IMX709 RGBW sensor for the selfie camera, which enables users to capture clearer selfies in low light, and the 50MP IMX766 sensor in the rear for flagship-level camera performance.
Reno8 Pro 5G houses the MariSilicon X imaging NPU, enabling unrivalled videography capabilities in its class. MariSilicon X enables 4K Ultra Night Video for ultra-clear, brighter, and more detailed videos at night, as well as 4K Ultra HDR Video to keep details in both highlights and shadows.
Flagship charging speeds with incredible battery lifespan
80W SUPERVOOCTM on Reno8 Pro 5G and Reno8 5G empowers users to charge the 4500 mAh battery to 50% in around 10 minutes, and to 100% in around 30 minutes. With Battery Health Engine, Reno8 series devices keep up to 80% of their original capacity after 1,600 full charge cycles, which is twice the industry standard (800 cycles), making it the longest smartphone battery lifespan on the market.
