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)
  • The design of the Realme X3 SuperZoom is identical to the Realme 6 Pro - it looks elegant and beautiful (though, the plastic frame and overused design might not be of everyone's taste)
  • The dual hole-punch cutout at the front gives the phone a modern appearance
  • Fingerprint Sensor is embedded in the unlock button and it is quick (though, it is a bit unreliable)
  • Good 6.6-inch IPS LCD FHD+ display - it gives off quite punchy, and vivid colours (though, an AMOLED display would be appreciated at this price)
  • The 120Hz refresh rate on the Realme X3 SuperZoom makes for a smooth and seamless visual experience
  • Brightness levels are more than sufficient for outdoor use
  • Software is one place where Realme has taken a big leap, the Realme UI is easy to use - it is also packed with features such as app cloning, Google Assistant, a gaming mode, digital wellbeing, and contactless payments among others - there are some more interesting and useful features like Realme Dual-Mode Audio, which allows you to connect a Bluetooth and a wired headset at the same time to listen to music on the smartphone
  • Excellent performance for the price - the Snapdragon 855 Plus is a powerful chip, so as expected, general usage and multitasking is handled superbly - gaming performance is nothing to scoff at, the phone handles heavy games like PUBG at the highest settings with ease
  • Good quad cameras for the price - there's a 64MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, an 8MP periscope telephoto camera, and a 2MP macro camera
  • Daylight photos from the SuperZoom's main cam are very good - it captures a lot of fine detail and processes it in a natural manner, so it doesn't have an artificial look
  • The 8MP ultra-wide angle cam turns in a solid performance too, with good detail and wide dynamic range
  • The telephoto camera of the Realme is the real standout feature - it can zoom up to 5x optically and captures sharp and detailed images with high contrast - colours and dynamic range are praiseworthy as well
  • Portraits are good too, the blur quality is nice and the intensity is just right
  • Very good dual selfie cameras, 32MP primary and 8MP Ultra-wide - 32MP camera of the Realme X3 SuperZoom takes really good selfies with a ton of detail and the wide-angle camera is great for taking a group selfie
  • Very good battery life with the 4200 mAh cell - the SuperZoom delivers a solid day and a half of battery life, even with heavy usage
  • The bundled 30W fast charger is very quick and manages to charge the battery from zero to about 90 per cent in an hour
  • The X3 Superzoom is a pretty good buy for its price - the display is great for an LCD, performance is solid, and battery life is excellent and the cameras are good enough
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 Realme X3 SuperZoom is quite chunky at 8.9mm and a bit heavy at 202g
  • Low-light photos from the Realme X3 SuperZoom aren't quite as good, images from the main cam are on the soft side and quite noisy too - Night mode improves things a bit but the quality of the shots is still not exciting
  • The macro lens doesn't really excel at what it is supposed to do, the detailing of the images is low because of the very low 2MP resolution (though, it help take closer shots of smaller subjects)
  • Overall, the Realme X3 SuperZoom offer versatile cameras, but they are inconsistent and a bit unreliable to be the go-to shooter in your pocket
  • No headphone jack
