The Oppo Reno 8 5G

The Oppo Reno 8 5G is a king even amongst other flagships, with flagship features on the bleeding edge, with a 6.4 inch AMOLED 90Hz screen, a triple camera arrangement, 80W fast charging &, and a huge battery at 4500mAh and the latest Dimensity 1300 chipset. It ticks pretty much every box, and then some. Add 5G to the mix and this phone is nothing but a beast! If anything, it’s very much a flagship, but not the most expensive on the market, which is a wonderful compromise!


The Oppo Reno 8 5G comes with a 6.4-inch AMOLED 90Hz screen with a left-handed punch-hole design for the selfie camera. It has beautiful even bezels and a small chin at the bottom, with a screen-to-body ratio of 83.9%. It has a refresh rate of 90Hz refresh rate, an aspect ratio of 20:9, and supports HD10+ which makes it an absolute delight to consume media with. It has a plastic frame, & back, and a Corning Gorilla 5 front panel. It is very bright and vivid, peaking at 800 nits. It’s rated for IP53 dust and splash protection, which makes it waterproof at 1.5m for 30mins. Unfortunately, it loses the headphone jack, like other phones in this price range. It has an on-screen optical fingerprint sensor, in addition to secure face unlock. It has a single downward-firing loudspeaker, which offers great sound when playing media.


The Oppo Reno 8 5G is a beast with the latest flagship generation Mediatek Dimensity 5G chipset, placing it on the top with the big boys. It has a Cortez Octa-core CPU paired with a Mali G77 GPU, with storage options of 8 GB for RAM & 128/256 GB for ROM. It does not offer the expandable memory option. Paired with the 90Hz screen, running the latest Android 12 with ColorOS 12.1 skin on top, the performance feels very fast and premium. The ColorOS is rich in customizations, supporting numerous always-on-screen animations and true blacks. That is in addition to native Oppo apps and what’s good in the ColorOS eco-system. Everything feels fast, fluid, and rich in color.


The Oppo Reno 8 5G has a triple camera arrangement on the back. It comes with a decent 50 MP primary sensor, for those excellent daylight photos. The ultra-wide is an 8MP lens, with a 112˚field of view, giving it great immersion for those landscape or group photos. There is an extra 2MP macro telephoto lens for those nice, close-up photos with X3 optical zoom. The video can support up to 4K at 30 fps, with HDR support & gyro-EIS stability assistance. It can also record 1080p video at 120 fps with gyro-EIS & auto HDR. The selfie camera is a generous 32MP wide sensor, capable of 1080p video at 30 fps with gyro-EIS. The selfies are vivid and well-lit.

Other features

The Oppo Reno 8 5G comes with an impressive 80W fast charging, getting the phone to 100% in about 28 min, which is an industry-leading speed. It also comes with reverse wireless charging of 5W. That is impressive by all standards. That is in addition to the fact that it also comes with a Li-Po 4500mAh non-removable battery. Even with the high refresh rate screen, this should be more than enough. It supports NFC for contactless payments. The device is very much a serious contender even in the flagship sector. It comes in Black & Gold.

Similarly, priced phones would include Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite, Xiaomi Redmi K40, OnePlus 8, and iPhone SE 2020. the main distinction at this price point is often a choice of a better camera or more memory. The sizes are usually standard and the batteries are often huge. Also, the likelihood of better fast-charging options & high-end screens is a differentiating factor.

The design is great and looks on par with many flagships in the market now. The OS will feel right at home, considering ColorOS is widely acclaimed as having lesser bloatware in comparison with the rest in the Android skin spectrum.
