Editor Rating

The Oppo Reno6 5G is the most affordable 5G smartphone in the Reno lineup, which features a whole new design and aesthetic, which ditches the curves to instead go for a flat-edge design that can be seen not only in the frame but also the back panel and front display. You still get a colourful back panel which has been painted in the signature frosted matte finish using the special Oppo Glow technology that makes the colours shimmer in direct sunlight. The front gets an equally bright and brilliant AMOLED display, which is powered by a reliable Dimensity processor.


Bottom Line

Oppo Reno6 5G is a great upgrade to the outgoing base model Reno5 smartphone, which features a fresh design and upgraded internals, including the display, processor and cameras. The battery is still too small for taste, although you do get super fast wired charging, so it should not be hard to make up the loss.
