Editor Rating

The Oppo Reno8 Z is the successor to the Reno7 Z, which sits at a cheaper price point than the regular Reno8 but does include some choice upgrades, including the new understated and refined design that is highlighted by the subtle rainbow gradient that shimmers with the light. The camera module also sits flush with the back panel to give off the feel of uniformity, even though the texture of the area is more glossy than the rest of the back, which has a more diffused matte finish. You even get a pair of orbit lights that surround the camera sensors and act as notification LEDs.


Bottom Line

Oppo Reno8 Z has the potential to be a great mid-range flagship killer, with its vibrant AMOLED display, reliable processor, and AI-enhanced cameras, but the small battery size and lack of wireless charging make it miss the mark, despite an exceptional design.
