With a Snapdragon 778G at the helm, big numbers on the camera lenses, and a price of Rs 39,999, can the phone adjust itself in this competitive price range? Let’s find out in our review.

OPPO Reno 10 Pro Review: Pricing and availability in India

The Reno 10 Pro sits between the vanilla Reno 10 and the camera-focused Reno 10 Pro Plus. The phone has been launched in India in a single 12GB RAM and 256GB storage configuration. It’s priced at Rs 39,999.

OPPO Reno 10 Pro Review: Design and display

  • It weighs 185 grams
  • The phone misses out on a stereo speaker setup

The Reno 10 Pro is available in Silvery Grey and Glossy Purple. We have the latter for this review, and it surely knows how to stand out. Unlike its elder sibling, the Reno 10 Pro has a glossy back panel made of glass. It’s painfully slippery, so beware when keeping it on the couch or a table. The striking design is further aided by curved edges, which give the phone a premium feel while also making it easier to hold in hand.

The camera module at the back follows the same pill-shaped design approach. It protrudes a bit, making the phone wobble on flat surfaces. The easiest way to spot the Reno 10 Pro from the Pro+ is the lack of the Marisilicon branding on the camera module.

While the rear is made of glass, the frames are made of plastic. You’ll find the power and volume buttons on the right side. They are easy to reach and have decent travel. The phone itself is also pleasant to hold, tipping the scales at 185 grams, with its weight evenly distributed.

The bottom portion of the device is home to a USB Type-C port, SIM tray, primary microphone, and a speaker grille. At the top, you’ll find a secondary microphone and an IR blaster — which has been quite helpful for us.

A 6.7-inch OLED screen graces the front with a resolution of 1080×2412 pixels. Like most other phones in this segment, the Reno 10 Pro also features a curved display, adding to the premium structure. The 120Hz display is fast and smooth, and in our usage, we did not come across any ghost touches. You get to choose the screen colour mode, as per your preference. The display is vivid, crisp, and colourful.

With it being an OLED screen, the blacks are also quite profound. It supports the Widevine L1 certification so that you can enjoy 1080p content on OTT platforms. However, Netflix does not support HDR content out of the box. Using the phone outdoors is not an issue, thanks to the 950 nits of peak brightness. The display is layered with a Dragontrail Star 2 for accidental drops.

While all the roses were in the display department, we caught the audio department napping. Despite being priced at Rs 40,000, the Reno 10 Pro misses out on a stereo speaker setup—a feature you can find in most budget phones these days. Luckily, the mono speaker output is loud enough, but it’s still a missed opportunity.

OPPO Reno 10 Pro Review: Performance and software

  • A Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G SoC powers the phone
  • It runs on Android 13

With the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G at the helm, the Reno 10 Pro sits in an awkward position in this price range. The Snapdragon 778G is a chip usually found well within the Rs 30,000 price range — in phones such as the Poco X5 Pro (Review). It’s very clearly not targeting the performance-oriented user base. Regardless, the phone faces no issues in daily usage. Switching between multiple apps or just doom-scrolling through social media apps is fun and smooth.

The Reno 10 Pro supports Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, and more. While OPPO claims the phone uses UFS 3.0 storage tech, our tests revealed it is running on the UFS2.2 tech paired with LPDDR4X RAM, which is inferior compared to the competition.

Coming to the benchmark numbers, the Reno 10 Pro managed a score of 592523 in the AnTuTu v10 test. This score is obviously lower than other counterparts in this segment but triumphs over the Poco X5 Pro with the same chipset.

In 3D Mark’s Sling Shot Extreme, it returned an overall score of 5063. The Wild Life Extreme Stress Test returned a stability score of 99.4%, which was quite good. In Geekbench 6 tests, the Reno 10 Pro returned 1013 and 2817, single-core and multi-core scores, respectively.

The Reno 10 Pro can handle games, too. BGMI can be run at ‘HDR’ graphics and ‘Ultra’ frame rates. It was able to churn out 40fps for the most part, with a bit of warmth on the back panel. Playing at ‘Smooth’ graphics and ‘Extreme’ frame rates for 60fps output is suggested.

The phone runs on Color OS 13.1 based on Android 13. The software department sees no major upgrades as such and is very similar to the Reno 10 Pro Plus, and you can read more about it here. The Hot Games and Hot Apps folder can be found here, too.

OPPO Reno 10 Pro Review: Camera quality

  • The Reno 10 Pro can shoot videos at 4K 30fps
  • The 50-megapixel primary camera uses an IMX890 sensor

The Reno series’ consistency in bringing camera upgrades every year is commendable. The Reno 10 Pro sports a triple rear camera setup led by a 50-megapixel primary camera using the Sony IMX 890 sensor. It also supports optical image stabilisation (OIS). The same sensor can be found on the OnePlus 11, Reno 10 Pro Plus, and the OnePlus Nord 3. This is followed by a 32-megapixel telephoto portrait camera (with 2x optical zoom) and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle shooter. For selfies, you get another 32-megapixel camera. Talk about camera heaven.

The post-processing is quite similar to the elder sibling. Photos captured in daylight were bright and crisp. The colours produced were closer to natural and had no unnecessary saturation. The dynamic range was consistent across the board, with balanced shadows and highlights. The 2x optical zoom was also quite useful.

What’s more useful is when you use it in portrait mode. The edge detection is absolutely sublime, and not once has it missed. The images look straight out of a camera.

The details are good, but we found it hunting focus in tricky situations. While it takes detailed and colour-neutral images of objects, human subjects get illuminated with a red hue on their face. The low-light performance of the phone was also commendable. With the help of night mode, the images come out brighter, more detailed and with minimal noise.

The ultra-wide angle also clicks acceptable photos. The colour shifting isn’t very prominent, but the loss of details around the edges is.

The selfie camera also takes detailed shots but with a fair bit of warmth to your face. Captures taken against the light will reveal a halo effect around your head, similar to its elder sibling. It does not have a macro mode, which would have been a good addition. The Reno 10 Pro can shoot videos at up to 4K 30fps.

OPPO Reno 10 Pro Review: Battery and charging

  • It comes with a 4600mAh battery
  • The bundled 80W charger is relatively fast

The Reno 10 Pro packs a 4600mAh battery inside, 100mAh lower than the Reno 10 Pro+. OPPO had to cut some corners by including a smaller battery so that they could maintain the sleek form factor. The battery life was pretty average in our usage. It can last an entire day, given you use it moderately.

If you are a heavy user, chances are you will be fending for a charger by evening. We managed a screen-on-time of about five hours at max. Using the phone in High-Performance mode will cut this down considerably.

The charging situation is a saving grace for the Reno 10 Pro. You get an 80W brick inside the box. The phone takes roughly 30 minutes to charge from the dead, which is insane. Of course, the smaller battery helps in achieving this time.

OPPO Reno 10 Pro Review: Verdict

The Reno 10 Pro is one of the best-looking smartphones in this price segment. The glass finish at the back gives it a premium finish, and the curved edges help with the grip. The phone excels in the display and, especially, the camera department. In fact, the telephoto camera performance makes it one of the most capable camera phones in the sub-Rs 40,000 price segment, easily beating the OnePlus and iQOO counterparts.

However, at its asking price, the Reno 10 Pro misses out on some basic features, such as a stereo speaker setup. The software also carries a bunch of unwanted bloatware, which does not justify its premium price. The charging speeds are commendable, but the battery life is average. Sadly, it also misses out on any sort of IP rating.

If you want a balanced phone with good looks and a great camera setup, the Reno 10 Pro might suffice. But, with better options such as the iQOO Neo 7 Pro (Review), OnePlus 11R (Review), and the OnePlus Nord 3 (Review) in the market, recommending the Reno 10 Pro becomes challenging.
