OPPO Reno8 Pro Review

OPPO Reno8 Pro

The Reno series has been OPPO’s most expensive product in India for a long time. The most recent gadget from the series is the Reno8 Pro, which sent off in July. It has gotten a few striking overhauls when contrasted with the Reno7 Pro, like a superior processor and their devoted Marisilicon X NPU. Are these progressions worth the cost knock? Peruse on in my audit to find out.


The Reno series of smartphones from Oppo, some of which were touted as the most visually appealing smartphones in their respective price ranges, have a solid design history. The Oppo company has once again gone above and beyond to ensure a stunning design with the Oppo Reno8 Pro. It has a high-end appearance and finish thanks to its all-glass construction and aluminum frame. The sides are level and the presentation sits practically flush with the sides – so it has generally an iPhone-esque feel to it.

In spite of pressing in a ton of equipment, the Oppo Reno8 Pro weighs only 183 g, so it has an exceptionally lightweight form with respectable weight dispersion regardless of the enormous camera module. The telephone is 7.34 mm thick, so you won’t track down it as massive as some very good quality and leader gadgets available. The gadget is likewise agreeable to hold, notwithstanding, it includes a huge 6.7-inch making, making one-gave utilization an unlikelihood.

The company refers to the Reno8 Pro’s “unibody design” as the camera module seamlessly blending in with a single glass sheet on the rear panel. Although we felt that the design could be elevated a notch higher if the camera module were made slightly smaller, the result is, in all honesty, quite stylish and striking. The telephone wobbles somewhat on a level surface, yet it isn’t quite as forceful as we’ve seen on different telephones with more extreme camera modules.

The phone is comfortable to hold even in landscape mode due to the camera module’s subtle curve, which provides a resting spot for your index or middle finger. Generally speaking, this is a perfect looking telephone, conceivably the best-planned one in the fragment.

The back includes a shiny glass board and the Frosted Green variety variation we got was phenomenal at dismissing fingerprints and smears. The phone is also IP54-certified for resistance to dust and water, but other similarly priced phones, like the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, offer a higher IP rating. The organization has utilized Gorilla Glass 5 for insurance, so in all cases, this is a very much safeguarded cell phone – from the two components and unplanned drops. Our main genuine problem with the form is that the in-show finger impression sensor is put too coming up short on the screen, and somebody with more limited fingers will find it harder to arrive at the sensor one-gave.


The Oppo Reno8 Pro features a stunning 6.7-inch AMOLED panel with a 120 Hz refresh rate and Full HD+ resolution. The bezels around the presentation are incredibly flimsy and keeping in mind that all sides aren’t uniform, the slight bezels really do add to the top notch feel of the telephone. You have one of the highest screen-to-body ratios available in this price range, at 93.4%.

Looks of the presentation to the side, the board performs outstandingly. You get HDR10+ and Widevine L1 support meaning you can appreciate HDR superior quality substance on web-based features, for example, Amazon Prime and Netflix. The display’s vibrant, if occasionally oversaturated, colors make content consumption on this device a pleasure. Assuming that puts you off, you can change the showcase tone preset to Normal to get an all the more consistent with life variety portrayal. By the by, the image you get is fresh and dynamic. Seeing points are incredible also. The AMOLED board likewise guarantees genuine blacks which makes the differentiation considerably more extravagant.

Regarding the brightness of the display, we had no trouble using it even in direct sunlight because the screen was always legible. In normal use, we measured a peak brightness of 552 nits, but the screen easily reached 800-900 nits in High Brightness Mode.

The screen upholds 120 Hz invigorate rate however there’s no powerful revive rate exchanging highlight which implies it will run at 120 Hz no matter what’s on the screen. This can filter the battery a considerable amount yet you can turn down the revive rate to 60 Hz in the settings menu, would it be a good idea for you want the additional juice. Swiping and scrolling within apps felt fluid and smooth with the 120 Hz refresh rate enabled.

Notwithstanding the amazing showcase, you additionally get sound system speakers on the telephone which are very clearly and sound very great, making content utilization a significantly more vivid experience.


The MediaTek Dimensity 8100-MAX SoC that powers the Oppo Reno8 Pro is the same one that powers the significantly less expensive OnePlus 10R. The chipset is paired with 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage and 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM. There’s likewise support for added virtual Slam, yet 12 GB is enough for even weighty performing multiple tasks, so that element isn’t exactly essential on this telephone. Only one memory option is available, and it costs 45,999. Oppo’s own MariSilicon X Imaging NPU, which is used to improve video recording, is paired with this processor.

The Dimensity 8100-MAX SoC has enough power to function flawlessly in everyday use. Undertakings like calling, messaging, virtual entertainment, web perusing, and more can be done without any hitches. Despite using a lot of video editing software and having more than 12 tabs open in the background, we didn’t experience any stutter or lag. Gaming is smooth on this gadget also, with the telephone’s GPU having the option to deal with pretty much any game tossed at it on High illustrations.

We ran our standard slew of benchmarks on the Oppo Reno8 Pro and the telephone proceeded true to form. Notwithstanding, when confronted with contenders at around a similar price tag with better SoCs, the telephone showed its problematic incentive for its asking cost.

We set the Oppo Reno8 Pro in opposition to the Moto Edge 30 Pro and the Pixel 6a since the two telephones sport a marginally lower sticker price than the Reno8 Pro. The Moto Edge 30 Pro outperformed the Reno8 Pro in every benchmark we ran, while the Pixel 6a achieved comparable results.

In addition, we ran Call of Duty: Portable through Gamebench Ace. The telephone ran the game at a middle FPS of 59 at 100 percent strength on High Illustrations, which is magnificent. Our experience agreed with the Gamebench numbers – while playing COD: Portable we scarcely saw any casing drops and the ongoing interaction was smooth the whole way through. The telephone likewise took care of intensity pretty well and wasted time as hot as the Pixel 6a did following 15 minutes of COD: Mobile.

The Oppo Reno8 Pro is capable of handling almost anything you throw at it, even though there are phones priced similarly that perform better in benchmarking apps. The phone only throttled to 94% of its peak performance after 15 minutes in our CPU Throttling Test. This demonstrates that the telephone can support its presentation much under impressive jobs and can deal with heat great with its graphite-based cooling framework. Even though avid mobile gamers are not Oppo’s intended audience for this phone, we would still recommend it to them.


The Reno8 Pro ships with ColorOS 12.1, an Android 12-based operating system. As to security fix, it is running the June 2022 security fix at the hour of composing this survey. OPPO has promised software updates for two years, which is shorter than some other brands in this price range.

Since the last time I used ColorOS 12 to evaluate the Reno7 Pro, OPPO has not made any significant enhancements to the software. You get the typical arrangement of customization choices, for example, changing the framework subject, Consistently in plain view, symbols and that’s only the tip of the iceberg. Flexible Windows, a Smart Sidebar, a System Cloner, and other features are also included.

The product is quick and liquid, with smooth movements and fast application opening times. I confronted no significant issues with the product experience, and anybody who knows about ColorOS will feel totally at ease.

The number of pre-installed apps was one of my few issues. Even though they can be removed, I still find it a little distracting to see so many apps. Thankfully, ColorOS 12 does not display advertisements.

For biometric validation, the Reno8 Pro highlights an in-show unique finger impression sensor that functions true to form. It was simple and quick to enroll fingerprints and unlock the device. It utilizes optical innovation rather than ultrasonic innovation, and it worked precisely during my survey. ColorOS is compatible with a variety of features, including Privacy Safe and App Lock, and you can add up to five fingerprints.

Face Unlock is another feature that the phone supports, but it only works with the front camera. Since it’s not secure, I didn’t utilize it.

The Music Player app is installed by default on the phone. It is a fundamental player with the main additional component being a Rest clock choice. The telephone additionally accompanies YT Music preloaded on the off chance that you need to utilize that. The two stereo speakers that come with it sound pretty good. At maximum volume, they are barely audible and have very little to no distortion. Although the bass isn’t the best, I was happy with it overall when watching content.

There is no help for Dolby Atmos or Dolby Vision, which is a bummer. The showcase is HDR10+ skilled, however, and it works while watching HDR content on YouTube and on Netflix. It likewise has Widevine L1 certificate, empowering HD video playback in web based applications.

The Reno8 Pro has double SIM support with a Double SIM space. It supports 13 5G bands, including n77, n78, n38, n40, n41, n1, n3, n5, n7, n8, n20, n28A, and n28B, as well as 4G LTE, VoLTE, VoWiFi, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth v5.3, and NFC. Additionally, it is ready for 5G. It likewise upholds transporter conglomeration. During my audit, calls were clear, and I confronted no drops.

It supports GPS, A-GPS, BeiDou, GLONASS, Galileo, and QZSS for positioning. The SAR esteem was accounted for as 1.185W/Kg for Head SAR and 0.921W/Kg for Body SAR. These are significantly below the government’s limit.


Oppo is marketing the Reno8 Pro as a camera-focused device, but the cameras appear to be the device’s weakest link, which is unfortunate. The selfie camera is the camera stack’s most consistent shooter, but the shots taken by all three rear lenses are inconsistent. Let’s discuss. The Oppo Reno8 Pro includes a triple back camera stack comprising of a 50 MP Sony IMX766 essential focal point, a 8 MP ultrawide shooter, and a 2 MP full scale camera. For taking selfies, you also get a 32 MP Sony IMX709 camera.

Pictures look pretty good in daylight, with lots of detail and vibrant colors. The colors, on the other hand, are sometimes too saturated, which works for social media but can look unnatural. In close-up shots, the camera has great regular foundation obscure yet at times, the subject’s edges look excessively delicate.

With respect to dynamic reach, the Oppo truly does well in ideal lighting conditions however in more precarious lighting features get exaggerated and shadows are squashed. The Oppo typically clicks sharp pictures and with auto-HDR, subtleties are brought out pleasantly in many examples. There’s likewise a devoted 50 MP mode that draws out some additional detail however thinks twice about powerful reach.

Oppo has referred to the Reno8 Pro as “The Picture Expert” and keeping in mind that the essential focal point is equipped for clicking some strong representation shots in ideal lighting conditions, complexions and surfaces look a smidgen too unnatural on the telephone. There’s a ton of smoothening and brightening occurring here, even with Magnificence Mode switched off. Although the camera occasionally misses a stray hair strand, edge detection is pretty good.

The 8 MP ultrawide camera is really not comparable to the opposition, to be specific telephones, for example, the Nothing Telephone (1) and the Pixel 6a. The photographs are deficient exhaustively and the unique reach is poor. The ultrawide shooter has very little barreling, but other than that, they don’t really have much to gain. In fact, the ultrawide shots exhibit a tremendous amount of noise and softness in low light. The phone also has a 2 MP macro camera that isn’t worth mentioning because it takes soft and blurry pictures mostly because it doesn’t have OIS.

In low light, the essential focal point makes a nice showing with separating subtlety in photographs and allowing enough to light in to enlighten the photograph well. Night Mode brings out more detail in photos, but colors don’t look their best when there isn’t much light. In low-light conditions, Oppo also does a good job of reducing lens flare from lights. Low-light shots, on the other hand, are hit-and-miss without OIS, with some lacking detail and others looking fantastic. You might have to make several efforts to have the ideal low-light chance you want.

Concerning selfies, the 32 MP front camera is the most grounded connection of the Reno8 Pro’s camera stack. The phone consistently takes vivid, detailed pictures that are ready for social media and look great. Switch off the magnificence mode and you’ll get pretty variety exact complexions also. With impressive edge detection, portrait selfies are also fantastic. With the phone’s built-in screen flash, low-light selfies look great. There’s a lot of detail and character in evening selfies.

Moving on to video, the phone makes use of the MariSilicon X NPU to enhance videos with low light. The telephone tops video recording at 4K@30 fps on the back camera while the selfie camera finishes out at 1080p@30 fps. In sunshine, Oppo’s recording has an excessive lot of differentiation and the features are now and again exaggerated. We disabled AI mode in the video, and while the contrast decreased to a level that was more manageable, it still does not appear natural.

The MariSilicon X NPU does demonstrate its capabilities by dynamically adjusting exposure at night. This prompts sufficiently bright low-light recordings with a lot of detail. Notwithstanding, the steady openness and dynamic reach changes truly do look bumping now and again. You can outwardly see the varieties and openness shift and it doesn’t look consistent because of that. To get the most out of its capabilities, Oppo needs to spend more time optimizing its NPU.

Generally speaking, the Oppo Reno8 Pro’s camera has positive shortcomings, and telephones, for example, the Google Pixel 6a and the lower-estimated Nothing Telephone (1) appear to be more reliable in specific regions. If the camera is your main concern, we can’t recommend the Reno8 Pro enough unless Oppo releases firmware updates to fix some of these problems.


The 4,500 mAh battery that powers the Oppo Reno8 Pro is included in the box, along with an 80 W SuperVOOC fast charger. This phone has a great battery life, lasting more than a day with moderate use. With weighty utilization, you can anticipate about a day of battery duration. In our video battery test where we play a 4K video on circle on full splendor, the telephone endured just shy of 15 hours, which is extremely great.

The device was fully charged in just 38 minutes thanks to the 80 W charger that came with it. At the end of the charge, the phone felt a little warm, but it wasn’t too bad.


The Reno8 Pro offers a ton of upgrades over the Reno7 Pro that could legitimize the expansion in cost. It has a superior showcase, quicker charging, all the more impressive processor and a significantly better camera. Although I preferred the Reno7 Pro’s design more, the build quality is also excellent. I’d be willing to pay more for these changes.

Be that as it may, when you calculate the opposition, especially, the OnePlus 10R and the realme GT Neo 3, the OPPO Reno8 Pro looks overrated. They have very much like specs, offer a comparative programming experience and better charging speeds (while contrasting the 150W variations). The greatest contrast would be the distinction in camera quality, in which the OPPO Reno8 Pro is the reasonable victor.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
