Reviews for the Oppo Reno8 5G
The Oppo Reno8 5G lags behind some of the competition in its class. However, its performance is somewhat unbalanced, with a much better performance in Recording than for playback, so depending on your needs it might still be an option to consider. In Playback the device performs on a similar level in the movie and music use cases but does slightly better for gaming. It offers decent distance rendition and maximum volume but a single mono speaker means it’s sub-par for Spatial attributes. Dynamic and Timbre also leave room for improvement. A narrow tonal spectrum is very much focused on the midrange. Strong volume fluctuations at low volume settings can result in a very frustrating loss of information and you have to be careful not to block the only speaker with your hands while holding the phone. The Oppo does much better as a Recording device. It performs best when recording selfie videos and memos but also does a decent job with the main camera and used to record meetings. Recordings benefit from a good tonal balance across all apps as well as excellent wideness when recording main camera video and memos.

The Oppo Reno8 5G display was overall very readable in various conditions, except under sunlight, and was quite good when it came to touch performance. Despite the screen’s lack of brightness in outdoor conditions, when the device was under challenging sunlight conditions, dark tones were automatically enhanced, allowing for better readability. This difference in screen readability was also quite significant when compared with the readability of the Pro version of the phone, which struggled in the sunlight. The Oppo Reno8 5G performed very well in the video game use case, thanks to the display’s smoothness, touch accuracy, detail level, and aliasing management. Where the Oppo Reno8 5G display really fell short was in videos. The display’s low video brightness and the overly dark tones was quite distracting that it interfered with watching movies and videos comfortably.

The OPPO Reno8 hits it out of the park in this initial review. It has everything we need in a modern smartphone and is a complete package. Meanwhile, the OPPO Reno8 Z has too much in common with its predecessor for us to formulate any new opinions. While it remains to be a decent phone and a headphone jack is always a welcome inclusion, the 60Hz display might just be its achilles’ heel.

For its asking price of Rs 29,999, the OPPO Reno8 5G could have done better in the performance department. In fact, when pit against some of its competitors including the iQOO Neo 6 5G (review), the Redmi K50i (review), and the POCO F4 5G (review), OPPO’s latest struggles to make its mark in both, synthetic and real-world tests. That being said, none of the competitors looks as good as the OPPO Reno8 5G. The handset’s design is something to write home about, while its 80W SuperVooc charging solution offers an amazingly fast wired charging speed. The 90Hz AMOLED screen and the camera setup add to the overall appeal, making the OPPO Reno8 5G a worthwhile option to consider in the segment.

The Oppo Reno 8 5G is a well designed smartphone with capable hardware priced under Rs. 30,000. It offers good performance that's on par with others in the segment and has decent cameras for the price. ColorOS has good features but the amount of preinstalled bloatware could get annoying to someone who prefers a clean Android experience. The lack of OIS also does adversely affect camera performance, especially when shooting photos in low light. Given the amount of smartphones that have launched in this price range in the past year, the Reno 8 5G has its work cut out. The OnePlus Nord 2T 5G (Review) is the closest alternative and it is nearly identical to the Reno 8 5G in terms of hardware. The Motorola Edge 30 (Review) is priced similarly and focuses on a slim design while offering a 144Hz refresh rate display and clean near-stock Android. The Mi 11X 5G (Review) is also worth considering for anyone purely looking for good performance at this price.

The Oppo Reno 5G seems to have everything one would expect from a mid-range smartphone. There's the capable processor, a fast charging system and capable cameras, but Oppo hasn't really addressed the shortcomings of the previous model. There's still no official IP rating, no stereo speakers and the phone's body is still made out of polycarbonate, unlike the Reno 6 5G (Review). How does it stack up against the similarly priced and spec'ed OnePlus Nord 2T 5G (Review), and is it unique enough to take on similarly priced devices such as the Realme 9 Pro+ 5G (Review) or the iQoo Neo 6 (Review)? Find out in our detailed review, coming soon on Gadgets 360.
