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)
  • Premium, stylish glass-sandwich design - two glass sheets joined by an anodized aluminum frame
  • The back has a nice gradient effect - there's a subtle "X" pattern if you shine a light at it
  • Cold glass, colder metal, all curved and melded into one another, the Realme X2 Pro feels great in hand
  • Excellent, fast in-display fingerprint scanner and face unlock
  • Beautiful, large, bright, vibrant OLED display, with a cool 90Hz refresh rate - the best display panel you will get at this price point
  • The 90Hz refresh rate means everything feels super snappy on the phone - from UI animations, webpage scrolling, to games
  • The screen also delivers HDR10+ support and a bunch of colour modes too, as well as a dark mode to take advantage of the OLED’s inky blacks
  • ColorOS is now more streamlined (and less bloat-y) than before, and still packs a bunch of useful add-on features, like Game space
  • Top-end flagship performance with the Snapdragon 855+ beast at the core (the cheapest phone with the flagship 855+ at present) - the X2 Pro steamrolls through anything you throw at it, including high-end games
  • Gaming on the phone is especially a treat, also because of the 90Hz screen
  • Nice, versatile quad camera setup: 64MP primary + 13MP telephoto + 8MP ultra-wide + 2MP depth sensor
  • In daylight, the 64MP camera can grab some great shots - detail is great and dynamic range is fair
  • Very good portrait mode
  • The ultra-wide, and macro modes provide for some interesting framing options (though quality wise, they are not quite up there with the primary camera)
  • The telephoto lens is capable of 2X optical zoom, 5X hybrid zoom, and a total of 20X digital zoom - and, up to 5x zoom, the quality is pretty good, especially in good lighting conditions
  • Very good video capture with impressive electronic image stabilisation from the main camera - comparable to much more expensive phones
  • Good selfie camera too - its 16MP resolution captures detailed shots, and it shoots at up to FullHD video
  • Overall, the camera setup on the X2 Pro is very good for the price bracket, but it's not the best (Redmi K20 Pro, and Oneplus 7T do slightly better)
  • Excellent Dolby tuned stereo speakers - they are both loud and hard to cover up - listening to music on the phone is a joy
  • Very good battery life with a large 4000mAh battery - will give you up to 1.5 days of use with moderate usage
  • Includes crazy-fast 50W fast charging - the fastest in the industry till date - even beating top-end flagships like the Mate 30 Pro and Samsung Galaxy Note 10 (by a massive margin) - it goes flat to 100% in just 30 minutes!
  • The X2 Pro is a smashing entry by Realme in the flagship space - it's crazy good value for money, completely changes the affordable flagship landscape, and is a power user's dream - as long as you are ok with a not-the-best-at-this-price-range camera, it will be hard to do better than the X2 Pro
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
  • A bit beefy at 199g and 8.7mm thick
  • Like all glass backs, this one too is slippery and attracts fingerprints and smudges
  • It's still not as clean/simple as stock Android of course - very few custom skins are
  • Low light performance and the night mode aren't that great, with the lack of OIS
  • If you do want the best-camera-for-the-buck, or a notch-less screen however, consider the Xiaomi's Redmi K20 Pro - and if you are really keen on a clean, stock like Android experience, consider the OnePlus 7T (at a slightly higher price point)
