2-minute Review [Positives]
  • 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)
  • Clean and simple design - manages to look and feel like a high-end device (though, it uses a 'Glastic' polycarbonate back)
  • The front looks striking and modern, thanks to the single punch-hole 'Infinity-O' panel with very narrow bezels and a thin chin at the bottom
  • Relatively light-weight at 186g for a phone this big
  • Both the in-display fingerprint sensor & face recognition are quick at unlocking the phone
  • Excellent, crisp and bright 'Super AMOLED+' display with Full HD+ resolution - it excels at producing punchy colors and has good viewing angles
  • The panel also supports HDR 10+ and Widewine L1, which makes the S10 Lite an absolute delight to stream HD movies and shows on popular OTT platforms such as Hotstar and Netflix
  • Samsung's second generation of its One UI based on Android 10 is one of the better, more clean and streamlined Android UIs around, and is well optimised for large modern displays (like this one)
  • Apart from facilitating fluid animations and gesture controls, the UI also brings support for Samsung’s ecosystem of apps and services, including Bixby (Vision, Lens Mode, Routines), the full version of Samsung Pay and Samsung Health - there’s also support for the defense-grade security platform Samsung Knox
  • Blazingly fast, power packed performance with the super fast flagship Snapdragon 855 - the device is arguably even more powerful than the company’s current flagship Note 10 and S10 series - opening apps or loading a game, the phone feels snappy, and even heavy-duty games such as PUBG Mobile and Call of Duty run at the highest graphic settings on the device
  • Very good triple camera setup - at the heart of its above par optics performance is a 48MP primary lens + a 12MP ultra-wide lens + a 5MP macro lens
  • For all intents and purposes, the primary lens is the star of the show here - it is capable of clicking some stunning shots during day time - the shots produce impressive levels of detail and dynamic range, under well-lit situations, putting this camera at least on par with the flagship devices from Samsung
  • Low light performance is equally capable of surprising the user - shots come out looking crisp and with a good amount of detail and colour accuracy, this might be because of the Super Steady OIS which helps save low light shots which would have otherwise been ruined by a slight movement of the hand
  • There is also a wide-angle and a macro-lens - both perform quite well during situations where the lenses are fed with enough light, the images look vivid and capture accurate colours and details - the two cameras provide the user with extra framing options which are high in quality
  • Portrait mode or Live Focus works well, with good edge detection, detail and colours - you can change the background bokeh effect for some interesting results
  • The 32MP front camera captures 8MP oversampled photos, which look good, with punchy colours and good amounts of detail - Live Focus is available here too, so you can play around with different bokeh effects - the front camera is pretty capable under artificial light too
  • Video quality is also good and the Super Steady mode help in recording very smooth videos
  • Overall, the Galaxy S10 Lite offers very capable cameras and the image quality on par with other phones in this price segment
  • Brilliant battery life, thanks to the optimised OneUI and the flagship Snapdragon 855 - on moderate use, the S10 Lite will easily give a day and a half’s worth of use
  • Very Fast Charging with the impressive 25W Charger (and support for an insane 45W Fast Charging), it tops up the phone’s battery to the brim in about 70 minutes
  • The Galaxy S10 Lite represents great value for money, something that you won’t generally get to hear about Samsung’s devices too often - from the cameras to the battery and overall performance, the phone impresses every step of the way, making it one of the best buys in the smartphone market right now
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • 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
  • The back panel is quite glossy and hence a fingerprint and smudge magnet
  • The display remains at 60 Hz refresh rate while the competition has moved to more futuristic 90 or 120 Hz displays like the ones in the OnePlus 7T and the ROG Phone 2
  • It is slightly more expensive than its closest competitor, the OnePlus 7T, which offers high refresh-rate display, a more premium glass and metal body, stereo speakers, a telephoto camera, and a more current processor - also, the base variant of the Asus ROG Phone 2 is also available at similar price, and offers much better gaming features
