China has been making leaps and bounds in the tech industry recently, disrupting traditional markets and even outpacing long-standing giants. Take smartphones, for example. Chinese brands are now dominating the global smartphone sales chart. And if it were not for the U.S. Trade Ban, Huawei would likely still be the world’s second-largest smartphone seller, right behind Samsung and ahead of Apple. What is even more astonishing is that some of these smartphone companies are now building cars!

The key to the success of Chinese Tech Companies lies in their aggressive approach to technology. They offer more features, better performance, and advanced tech, all for a fraction of the price you would expect.

This brings me to the Oppo Reno10 Pro+ 5G, a phone that genuinely surprised me. As someone who usually upgrades to the latest flagship phone every year or two, I have realized that I have been missing out on a lot. Priced at RM3499, the Oppo Reno10 Pro+ 5G delivers an experience that rivals and, at some points, surpasses that of much pricier flagship models. So, let us delve into what the Reno10 Pro+ 5G has to offer.


The Reno10 Pro+ 5G exudes the quality and finesse you would expect from a flagship phone, thanks to its top-notch build and materials used. Weighing in at a mere 194g and boasting a slim 8.28mm profile, what is truly remarkable is that Oppo has managed to incorporate an industry-leading periscope camera into this sleek form factor

The 3D Curved Screen adds another layer of sophistication. It enhances grip and contributes to a more immersive viewing experience, ticking all the boxes for what a flagship phone should offer. The phone feels incredibly comfortable and natural to hold. This is a big deal because we always use our phones, and a comfortable grip helps for long-term use.

The back of the phone has a glass panel with a subtle metallic texture that does not show fingerprints. I have been using it for weeks, and it still looks brand new. There are two colors to choose from: Glossy Purple and Silvery Grey. We got the Silvery Grey one, and it is a nice, low-key color that still looks fancy.

For added toughness, the front of the phone is covered with AGC Dragontrail™ Star 2 glass, which claims to offer up to a 20% improvement in drop resistance compared to Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5.


The Reno10 Pro+ 5G display is nothing short of spectacular, even compared to other flagship phones. Boasting a 6.74-inch, 10-bit AMOLED screen with a 2772×1240 resolution, it supports a 100% P3 wide color gamut and HDR 10+. Everything, from videos to photos, appears incredibly crisp and vibrant. The ProXDR Smart Display Control elevates the dynamic range in HDR photos, this feature enhances the realism in the interplay of light and shadow, making your portraits vibrant and true to life. And if you’re out in the sun? No worries—the screen stays pretty bright thanks to its peak HBM brightness of 1100 nits.

To round out the multimedia experience, the Reno10 Pro+ 5G has stereo speakers and supports Dolby Atmos for compatible accessories, like the Oppo Enco Air3 Pro wireless earbuds. So whether you are streaming HDR content on Netflix or YouTube, browsing the web, or gaming, the Reno10 Pro+ 5G ensures your experience is both immersive and enjoyable.

Oppo has always been known for its superior camera capabilities, and the Reno10 Pro+ 5G takes it a step further by setting a new standard in smartphone photography. Closing the gap between smartphone photography and DSLR, it is easier to capture a stunning photo with the Reno10 Pro+ 5G than a DSLR, thanks to its next-gen image processing algorithm and camera system.

At the heart of the device is a 64MP telephoto camera. This is more than just a telephoto lens; it is the highest-spec periscope telephoto ever featured in a smartphone. This translates to better image quality, professional-looking photos with refined bokeh (background blur), and improved optical zoom. The upgraded 3x zoom feature in portrait mode offers a focal length close to 71mm, perfect for capturing half-length portraits with little to no distortion.

The 50MP Ultra-Clear Main Camera, equipped with a larger Sony IMX890 sensor, f1.8 aperture, and Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS), captures incredible details in low-light conditions. I snapped a photo around 11 p.m. and was blown away by the results; the image appeared as if it were captured during evening twilight when it was nearly pitch-black outside.

If you are looking for the best selfie, the Reno10 Pro+ 5G has got you covered with a 32MP Ultra Clear front-facing camera. With features like AI beautification and HDR, you are always ready for your next Instagram Stories or social media updates. The wide 15cm minimum focus distance provides added flexibility, allowing you to fit more into the frame, making it perfect for vlogging and capturing the best group “Wefies.”


Under the hood, the Reno10 Pro+ 5G packs a punch with its Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, 12GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. While it may not be the latest chipset on the market, it still offers flagship-level performance that exceeds the needs of most users.
The phone feels snappy and smooth, even when running demanding applications and multitasking. Whether I am editing videos, playing graphics-intensive games, or switching between multiple apps, the Reno10 Pro+ 5G handles it all with ease.

Oppo even claims that the phone can manage up to 44 apps opened simultaneously without any lag or loss of data for each application. Thanks to the Dynamic Computing Engine, this feature adapts to your usage patterns and smartly allocates hardware resources to improve phone performance, ensuring a lag-free experience. Additionally, Oppo assures that the phone will maintain its smooth performance over time, making it a sound investment, especially for those who do not frequently upgrade their devices.

With all the performance and processing capabilities, thermal management becomes equally crucial to keep the device cool and prevent throttling issues. That’s where the Reno10 Pro+ 5G’s advanced cooling system comes into play. A step up from its predecessor, the Reno8 Pro. Using a special graphite material, it dissipates heat more effectively and offers a cooling surface area that is a whopping 92% larger. This setup ensures that the device runs efficiently and remains cool, even when you are pushing it hard with gaming or extended video shoots. From my experience, it has lived up to these claims, maintaining a comfortable temperature even during high-demand tasks.


I am a heavy user, and this phone has been able to keep pace with me. Even after a full day of intense usage, I find that there is still some battery life left. When it is time to recharge, the phone returns to 50% before I can even finish my coffee. This is all thanks to the groundbreaking 100W SUPERVOOC™ Flash Charge technology, which takes the phone from 0 to 50% in just 9 minutes and 30 seconds and fully charges it in a mere 27 minutes, making this one of the fastest-charging phones currently on the market. This rapid charging is incredibly convenient, especially for those who are always on the move.


The device runs on Android 13, with Oppo’s ColorOS 13.1 overlay. This custom user interface adds a layer of customization and features to the Android experience, allowing you to personalize your device to suit your preferences. The ColorOS 13.1 offers a clean and intuitive user interface, with thoughtful additions such as customizable themes, gesture controls, and system-wide dark mode.


Beyond the basics, the Reno10 Pro+ 5G packs in some nifty extras. The in-display fingerprint sensor is incredibly responsive, and the IR Remote Control feature is a game-changer for smart home management. I can do everything from adjusting the air-con temperature to controlling my smart TV without getting off the couch.

The Reno10 Pro+ 5G also offers a range of connectivity options to keep you connected and enjoy fast and reliable network speeds. The device supports WiFi 6, NFC, 5G, and Bluetooth 5.3, ensuring seamless connectivity for all your online activities. You can expect fast and stable internet speeds when browsing the web, downloading files, or streaming content.


In conclusion, the Oppo Reno10 Pro+ 5G is a smartphone that truly excels in the camera department. Its versatile camera setup delivers outstanding results, whether you are capturing portraits, landscapes, or low-light scenes. The design of the phone is sleek and eye-catching, and the display offers immersive visuals. With its powerful performance, long-lasting battery life, and lightning-fast charging capabilities, the Reno10 Pro+ 5G is a top contender in the flagship smartphone market.
