A Thick Device With A Shark Fin Cam Oppo Reno 10x Zoom
PC.com|July - August 2019

The Reno 10X Zoom is Oppo's attempt at a new form factor, and is their new flagship.

The phone in and of itself looks, feels, and performs well. But that doesn't mean that it comes without it's faults. It was an innovative way of Oppo, to at least try and create something new. New however, doesn't always equal better. The phone is a solid performer for the price, and I'll get to why soon.

(For context, the Reno unit that we received came directly from China, so the Google Play Store wasn't available at our disposal.)

Display; A Bright Vibrant Display With No Distractions

The first thing you'll probably notice about the phone is the display. The phone has a 6.6" AMOLED, 'Fullview' display. We're not really sure how Oppo themselves refer to the screen form factor, but that's the standard these days. And that's in part due to the 'shark-fin' selfie camera, which admittedly is a pretty cool feature. It's unique, and no one else seems to be trying to emulate what the Reno is done. In that way, they've created their own, one of a kind device.

The display is otherwise bright, it performs well even with the sun beaming down on it. Not particularly a surprise with a 1080 x 2340 resolution with 387 ppi. Thanks to that, colours on the device look vibrant, and almost pops out of the screen. And that's just a few of the reasons why the display on the Reno, is one of my favourites. The Reno 10x also boasts a 93.1% screen to body ratio, which is pretty wild. Overall, there's nothing I can say to diminish the value that the screen has for this device. It wouldn't be the same without it, and Oppo really put their money where their mouth is with this one.
