Following on the venerable midrange OPPO A78 5G, and the head turning foldable – the Find N2 Flip 5G – OPPO presents local buyers with a high-end Galaxy S23 rival in the form of the Reno10 5G.

While it packs sturdy and light plastic instead of the usual splattering of metal and glass, this phablet (162.3 x 74.2 x 7.89 mm; 185g) is still quite stylish, especially in the glossy purple colour of our review unit. Further emphasising the flagship nature of this Android running smartphone is its snappy Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 mobile platform that is paired with 12 (+4 GB) GB worth of RAM and 256 GB storage. This keeps things smooth and snappy while multitasking, playing even the most demanding mobile gaming titles and navigating its ColorOS 13.1 software that runs atop of Android 13.

Continuing on the flagship theme, OPPO provides a 6.7″ FHD+ (2412×1080) AMOLED screen that offers amazing detail (394 PPI), colours, and viewing angles while being very serviceable outdoors in direct sunlight (800 nits). Moreover, it packs a 120 Hz refresh rate that mobile gamers will appreciate. Another heavy hitting feature is the snapper since you get a 50 MP main rear camera that is flanked by an 8 MP ultra-wide camera and 64 MP telephoto lens which all allow for incredible versatility and excellent quality in most lighting conditions – certainly S23 battle worthy camera specs. There’s also a 32 MP front-facing selfie shooter.

And our standout feature is the 100 W fast charger that sets the industry standard in charging times by leaving iPhones and Galaxy devices in its wake. While the 4700 MaH battery can take you through a full working day, you just feel confident even when you skip a charge knowing that you can charge it from virtually empty to full again in less than 30 minutes. It charges via USB Type-C and for audiophiles to note – there is no 3.5 mm audio jack. However, some handy features that still remain is an IR blaster for controlling devices like your TV and dual-SIM capability.

All in all, it is a worthy option in this highly competitive market segment with a recommended retail price of R24 000 which costs the same as rivals like the iPhone 14 (non-Pro), and Samsung Galaxy S23.
