2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Great looking, premium glass design, especially with the Luminous Black option (very similar to the Reno 2) - easily one of the best-looking phones out there, at present (along with its predecessor the Reno 10x Zoom) - it offers a masterclass in how to craft a premium smartphone at a not-so-premium price point - in fact, half of the experience of the Reno 2Z is in its looks and that's the part that satisfies you the most
  • The curved Gorilla Glass rear panel is smooth and feels solid to the touch - the best thing about the back of the Reno 2Z is that it is one seamless piece of glass without any camera bump - the vertical quad camera system sits underneath the glass, offering a clean and visually attractive look
  • The curved edges on the back also offer a nice grip
  • Much lighter and more manageable than the original Reno 10x Zoom
  • Oppo has located the selfie camera in a pop-up module which is different compared to the shark-fin module of the Reno 2 - this pop-up module is illuminated by lights on either side (similar to the Redmi K20 Pro) - and the Reno 2Z also offers the option to change the light colour, which is a neat touch
  • The on-screen fingerprint sensor is extremely snappy and slightly faster than the face unlock method, but both are equally reliable
  • Beautiful, bright 6.53-inch Dynamic AMOLED display - what you get is close-to-all-screen and no bezels except for a slim chin (giving you a very good 91.1% screen to body ratio)
  • The display itself looks very good with vivid colours, deep blacks and excellent viewing angles - brightness levels on the Reno 2Z are good too
  • The display is also great for watching videos and playing games - the edge-to-edge display offers a distraction-free experience
  • ColorOS continues to get more streamlined, and lighter, but still continues to offer some neat features such as a lockscreen magazine, Night Shield, Game Space, App cloner, and smart battery saving options
  • Good performance backed by a solid Helio P90 processor (similar to the Snapdragon 710) - the Reno 2Z can handle pretty much any task you throw at it, and is also a good smartphone to game on - even heavy games like PUBG run smooth
  • Good thermal control - it doesn't warm up easily even with long gaming times
  • Good set of quad cameras - in addition to a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor that supports EIS, the Reno 2Z also offers an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera, a 2-megapixel monochrome lens, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor
  • The 48MP main camera can take good shots in daylight via its default 12MP pixel binning mode - Photos look sharp and colourful, and when HDR kicks in the dynamic range can get pretty wide, offering good contrast in tricky lighting conditions - AI scene detection does well too
  • The Night Mode ('Ultra Dark mode') works reasonably well - this long-exposure mode requires you to keep your hands still for a few seconds, allowing you to capture brighter shots with low noise - though you shouldn't expect Pixel 3 level performance here
  • The wide-angle lens also comes in handy if you want a different perspective
  • Portraits taken with the Reno 2Z are very good, and have good edge detection
  • The phone also holds up very well in the video department (especially in daylight) with the ultra steady mode kicking in to offer decent stabilisation
  • The 16-megapixel front camera will get you some nice-looking selfies in daylight (but not the sharpest or most-detailed)
  • Overall, the Reno 2Z cameras are pretty good for this price bracket
  • Very good speaker - even though the Oppo Reno 2Z comes with a single bottom-firing speaker, but it can easily match a phone’s sound with stereo speakers - the speaker produces really loud sound and bass levels are pretty good
  • The voice from the earpiece is also very loud for making calls, which is really nice, and something that a lot of modern smartphones do not pay enough attention to
  • Good battery life with a 4000mAh battery and a 1080p screen - you can expect up to 1.5 days of use
  • Also comes with some very fast VOOC 3.0 fast charging support and a 20W charging brick in the box - charge the device for an hour, and you'll be good to go for the day (you get up to 48 percent in 30 minutes and 88 percent in an hour)
  • If you are not too picky about having the best raw performance for your buck, the Oppo 2Z is a very good smartphone that especially impresses with its stunning looks and good cameras - if you do care about having the best performance however, you can look at the Redmi K20 Pro at a cheaper price, or the OnePlus 7 and Asus Zenfone 6Z at a slightly higher price
  • Looks sleek with a reflective back design
  • Front looks sharp and modern with the dual punch-hole cameras
  • Oppo Reno 3 Pro is a relatively lightweight device that’s easy to handle
  • The in-display fingerprint sensor works swiftly
  • Large, Vibrant 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display - the screen gives a satisfactory viewing experience with sharp colours and excellent viewing angles
  • The brightness levels are more than enough for any situation indoors while being enough for direct under-the-sun use
  • Reno 3 Pro also comes with Widevine L1 support allowing high definition playback on Netflix, and Prime Video
  • The company has revamped the user interface to offer a more simplified experience with the ColorOS 7 - it now offers new themes, wallpapers, icon styles - all these improvements make a considerable difference and make ColorOS 7 stand apart from any version in the past
  • Good overall performance powered by the new MediaTek P95 - everyday usage is an absolute breeze and can run heavy games like COD or PUBG on "medium" graphics with ease
  • Very good quad camera setup for the price - a 64MP standard camera, a 13MP telephoto, an 8MP ultra wide-angle, and a 2MP depth
  • In ideal lighting conditions, the primary sensor manages to capture good images, the white balance, colour reproduction, and sharpness are on point
  • The ultra-wide lens helps fit in a lot more into the frame and the quality is also decent (though, the level of detail is considerably lower compared to the primary camera)
  • The telephoto lens also does a good job and the quality remains similar to that of the ultra-wide
  • In low-light, the phone takes decent photos and there's dedicated Night Mode which brighten up the images
  • Portrait mode is decent and the edge detection is decent, you do get good dynamic range, nice contrast, natural-looking skin and a good amount of detail
  • The 44MP selfie camera takes very good shots with natural skin tone and punchy colours - there's also a selfie Night mode that appears to be more than adequate
  • Good battery life with the 4025 mAh battery unit - will easily last through a day of moderate to heavy usage
  • Excellent fast charging with the 30W included fast charger - it can fill the smartphone from 0 to 100 percent in around 50 minutes
  • The Oppo Reno 3 Pro has all its bases covered as a great phone should - it's got a vibrant and bright OLED, a generous 4025 mAh battery, and the overall camera experience is impressive, it's a considerable option (though, the choice for chipset is the phone's weak spot)
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The glass however, is glossy this time around rather than matt finish, so expect to see some fingerprints and smudges as you go about your day, especially on the Luminous Black option
  • As expected, there is a fair amount of bloatware preinstalled on the device, including the UC Browser, NewsPoint, Dailyhunt, Helo, Paytm, Amazon, and Facebook apps - most can thankfully be uninstalled though
  • Having said that, it's not the fastest phone in the price bracket though, with Snapdragon 855 phones available at even lower price brackets in the likes of Redmi K20 Pro
  • Oppo has used a polycarbonate back and body which takes away from the "premium" feel of the phone
  • The device does come with the usual bloatware
  • While the Reno 3 Pro performs well, it's not the best at this price, there are phones with much better hardware like the Realme X2 Pro or the OnePlus 7T
  • The OPPO Reno3 Pro isn't a phone for everyone and for this price, it's certainly not a 'bang-for-buck' and as far the competition is concerned, the Realme X2 Pro is definitely a better all-rounder
