Oppo is catching up on the flagship competition, especially after the inclusion of the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. Now, the company has introduced the best features in its latest launch, Oppo Reno 10 Pro + 5G. The phone has a Sony IMX 890 primary sensor and many new features. Starting at ₹54,999, the Reno10 Pro+ 5G can be considered a strong competitor to the OnePlus 11 and Vivo X90 Pro.
The Oppo Reno10 Pro+ 5G sports a lightweight and premium design, featuring a slim and curved frame that seamlessly connects with a 3D glass back panel. The phone is available in two color variants – Silver Gray and Glossy Purple. We received the previous variant to review.
Even with a glass back panel, the phone does not attract smudges. The rear design is very attractive and the camera frame has a two-tone design made of glass and aluminium, ensuring durability for the camera modules. Additionally, the device features a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 back panel for better drop resistance.
The phone features a narrow bezel design and 3D curved screen coated with AGC Dragontrail Star 2 cover glass to improve drop resistance. The power button and volume rockers are placed on the right, while the left is completely empty. The top of the phone houses the first speaker grill, an infrared remote control emitter, and a mic. Below is the second speaker grill, USB Type-C port and SIM tray.

The device features a 6.74-inch OLED screen that supports 10-bit color display, delivering natural and accurate colors. With 1240 x 2772 resolution, 100% P3 wide color gamut, support for HDR 10+ and HDR video play, you can enjoy stunning visuals and vibrant content. The phone also offers ProXDR Smart Display Control that improves the dynamic range of HDR photos, delivering stunning light and shadow effects with a brightness of up to 1100 nits.
The new model comes equipped with the latest Android 13 OS with user-friendly ColorOS 13.1 interface. The UI offers a clean and fast experience with a touch of personalization and convenience with its smart apps.
Packed with flagship Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 4nm processor, the phone contains high performance cores like Cortex-X2 clocked at 3.0 GHz, three Cortex-A710 cores clocked at 2.75 GHz and four Cortex-A510 cores clocked at 2.75 GHz. .
Since this is the Pro+ variant, we would have preferred the Gen 2 processor. However, the one used is very powerful and efficient and performs all tasks with ease. We have not experienced any delay in performing any function.
The processor is well supported by the 12GB RAM used in the phone. Considering the competition and the Plus variant, the phone would have placed in the top league with 16GB of RAM, close to the power provided by the OnePlus 11. For storage, the phone has 256GB of internal memory.
The device features an upgraded ultra-conductive cooling system that includes exclusive ultra-conductive graphite for optimal thermal conductivity and an expanded VC liquid cooling surface area that is 92% larger than its predecessor. The company has used Adreno 730 for graphics purposes and the gaming experience on the phone is very smooth without any drop in frame rates.
The Renault series has always excelled in delivering pleasing images. The new entrant takes smartphone photography to the next level with its powerful camera setup. The main camera features a 50MP Sony IMX890 lens with OIS. This combination allows for incredible snapshots and excellent low-light performance. The phone also has a 64MP telephoto portrait camera, the first in the Reno series. With 3x optical zoom and an upgraded portrait mode, you can easily capture professional-level half-body portrait shots. In addition, the phone has a 112° 8MP ultrawide camera, perfect for capturing sharp landscapes or taking in more scenes in front of you.
When it comes to daytime details, the camera sensors do a great job. Sharpness in images is excellent, with on-point detail. The telephoto lens is very good and accurate, maintaining the right contrast level without noise effects. Pictures taken at night are also interesting. The camera processes images very quickly with sharp details. We felt that images captured with and without Night Mode were almost equal in terms of maintaining shadows and dark levels. However, we still recommend Night Mode for more precise details and color accuracy.
The phone uses its rear spectral sensor and Oppo’s white balance algorithm to increase white balance accuracy, especially in situations with solid color backdrops.
For taking selfies, the phone is equipped with a 32MP Sony IMX709 sensor, featuring a more light-sensitive RGBW pixel array. This means you can expect better light capture, accurate color reproduction and overall better image quality, especially in low light.
The device is powered by a 4,700mAh battery. The battery comfortably lasted a day even after gaming and movies. The phone is equipped with 100W SUPERVOOC Flash Charge which fully charges the device in half an hour.
Additionally, it incorporates Oppo’s self-developed power management chipset, SUPERVOOC S, which integrates multiple functions into a single chip, reducing the area required for charging components on the motherboard.
After using the new Oppo Reno10 Pro+ 5G, we say the phone really carries the baton forward for the Reno series. It covers all domains well and provides excellent performance. The stunning design and body color, its amazing camera capabilities and Snapdragon processor put it in the top bracket of phones in the flagship race. If you’re looking for an all-in-one phone, we believe it’s a good choice.
