Display

The OPPO Reno 8 Pro 5G comes with a 6.70-inches 120Hz AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels and picks the brightness of 950 nits and its 10-bit panel with HDR10+ support.

Even though the device has HDR10+ support, I didn’t see an HDR tag on Netflix or even on Prime video but it does have Widevine L1 support which means, it supports FHD+ content on OTT platforms.

By the way, it only has a 120hz touch sampling rate which is kind of odd because this is a 46k smartphone, so even 360Hz would have been a soft spot.

Performance

The MediaTek Dimensity 8100 Max is a new processor from MediaTek and it will give a close performance to Snapdragon 888 SoC, so don’t worry about the performance.

The phone runs on ColorOS 12.1-based on Android 12, OPPO didn’t promise anything about the future update but going by the OPPO record, the phone should get the Android 13 update.

Cameras

OPPO Reno 8 Pro 5G comes with a 50MP primary sensor + an 8MP ultra-wide lens + a 2MP macro sensor while there is a 16MP selfie shooter on the front.

Now when you shoot videos at 4k@30fps, the videos don’t come out stable, it’s useable but it doesn’t feel natural. So if you want useable videos that look good then always use the 1080p@60fps.

Under good lighting, the 50MP sensor captures a good image but when there is low light or taking images at night, the sensor doesn’t provide good images, it loses out on details and there is a lot of noise in images too.

Audio

The OPPO Reno 8 Pro 5G comes with dual speakers and they’re also good too. Again, you will be more than happy with its quality.

The device has 2 × 2MIMO Carrier aggregation and two microphones, so there won’t be any issue with calling… For those who are wondering, no the OPPO Reno 8 Peo 5G doesn’t have the 3.5mm audio jack or even a micro-SD card slot.
