2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 23+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Absolutely captivating, premium, glass-and-metal design - arguably the best design of 2019 so far - the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom is a sight to behold, both front and back
  • The absence of any notch and the thin bezels on all sides gives the phone a distinct visual identity
  • Excellent build quality
  • The matte texture on the back glass gives it a bit of a grip and saves it from smudges (and for more careful users, OPPO also has a protective case in the box)
  • Fast in-display fingerprint sensor
  • On the heavy side, at 215g

Display

  • Excellent, captivating AMOLED screen - large and notch-free - watching content on the screen is a treat

Software

  • Color OS 6 is now leaner, snappier, and more streamlined
  • There are of course many add-on features as well - including Game space (to optimize game performance), Kids space (parental controls), Smart driving (for safety on the road), and special gestures for activating Google Assistant or switching to split-screen mode
  • Though it packs lesser bloatware than before, it's still not as neat and simple as stock Android or light skins such as OxygenOS

Performance

  • As you would expect from the flagship hardware underneath, the Reno 10x performs like a beast, matching other 2019 flagships beat for beat

Camera

  • The main highlights of the Reno 10x however are the impressive set of cameras, both front and back
  • The rear setup boasts of three cameras - 48MP primary camera + 8MP ultra-wide + 13MP telephoto, that's capable of an impressive 5x optical zoom, and up to 10x Hybrid zoom (similar to the current camera champ, Huawei P30 Pro)
  • The overall quality of images is excellent, and comparable to the best flagships - though not quite as good as the amazing P30 Pro - but that's in any case a very high benchmark
  • The other star of OPPO’s show is the front facing camera, with an intriguing shark fin pop-up design, that's sure to turn heads - the quality of the selfies is pretty good too
  • Video recording quality is very good too, and again comparable to other flagships

Battery

  • Excellent, class-leading battery life with a 4065mAH battery combined with some good software optimization - you will comfortably stretch it 2 days with light to moderate use
  • Excellent VOOC fast-charging, one of the best fast-charging technologies in the industry at present - you will get a full charge in about an hour

Verdict

  • Overall, with the cracking set of cameras, a beautiful design, an excellent battery life, and a more streamlined software experience from ColorOS, Reno 10X feels like an extremely well executed flagship, and is more than worthy of consideration alongside other top Android flagships like the OnePlus 7 Pro (More fluid 90Hz screen, and has stereo speakers, but the cameras are not as versatile), Samsung Galaxy S10 (stereo speakers, headphone jack, IP-rated water protection, but the cameras are not as versatile, and the screen has a punch-hole), and the Huawei P30 Pro (better camera package, but not quite as good looking)
