Oppo Reno5 Pro 5G Review

Premium Phone for Everyday Use

Oppo recently launched the Reno5 Series, which has brought along some impressive upgrades. The Reno5 Pro 5G upgrades are more than skin deep, and we genuinely felt that this device brings about some well-thought-out improvements. Let’s dig deeper and find out more about the smartphone.



The phone is equipped with a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED screen that curves gently along the edges. It comes with a refresh rate of 90Hz to deliver clear, distortion-free images. The Reno5 Pro 5G features an exterior design exclusive to the Reno series that’s creating quite a splash in the market these days. The upgraded Reno Glow 2.0 in the phone brings microscopic design techniques that create a shimmering, diamond-like look. The pyramid crystal structure is hydrophobic, which means water droplets simply bounce off it, thus keeping annoying fingerprints and grease at bay. The Reno5 Pro 5G is sleek; it is just 7.99mm thick and weighs only 184 gm in weight. It is available in two new unique colours – Starlight Black and Galactic Silver.


A Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset powers the Reno5 Pro 5G smartphone. Supporting that is its 12GB RAM + 256GB ROM configuration along with a multi-cooling system. These features come together to give users a compelling platform with impressive functionality. It comes with Oppo’s ColorOS 11.1 operating system that allows users a tremendous amount of customization options to help them configure a set of settings more suited to their individual usage needs. Users can even adjust the contrast ratio and choose between the three options available - Enhanced, Medium, and Gentle. Moreover, FlexDrop lets users multitask on the Reno5 Pro 5G by enabling resized windows.


Oppo has worked with Sony on this one to co-create the IMX766 sensor for the primary camera. The IMX766 sensor is one of the largest sensors in a smartphone, and the Reno5 Pro 5G is the first phone to be equipped with it. Its large surface area allows for more light, resulting in better clarity and brightness, especially in low-lit, night-time scenarios. The camera setup on the Reno5 Pro 5G includes a 50MP main camera, a 16MP ultra wide-angle camera, a 13MP telephoto camera with 5X hybrid zoom and a new 2MP macro camera. The camera setup makes intelligent use of AI to recognize objects such as faces, people, pets, flowers and more and automatically lock the focus on them. The software is designed to remember the subjects in order to track them as they move. On the other hand, the AI Highlight Video feature on this phone uses algorithms to adjust settings for various scenarios automatically.


The Reno5 Pro 5G comes is powered by a large 4500mAh battery. It can b recharged with the 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 Flash Charge adapter it comes with. The battery on this can be fully charged in just 35 minutes. The power-saving mode helps the Reno5 Pro 5G to last longer during everyday use as well as extreme usage. We found that charging the Reno5 Pro 5G for just five minutes allowed us to play a four-hour video.

Oppo’s Reno5 Pro 5G is available across retailers in the UAE retailers and is priced at AED 2,799. For this price, it packs a powerful battery that is backed by 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 fast-charging technology, an incredibly powerful 5G chipset, a highly improved camera architecture and enhanced gaming capabilities. Not to forget Oppo’s latest design innovation that we simply love.
