OPPO is entering into the year 2021 with Reno5 Pro in India. The Reno series from OPPO has been successful and has emerged as one of the favorites amongst Indian users. The new Reno5 Pro comes with a 5G chipset which makes it ready to use the 5G spectrum whenever it will be available in India. OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G is a flagship phone from the company but the major concern for the company will be the challenges which it will be facing in that price segment from the likes of OnePlus, realme, Vivo, etc. Let’s look at all the new features which the new Reno5 Pro 5G has to offer in this review of ours.
OPPO Reno 5Pro 5G is designed beautifully with a 3D borderless screen. The design of the phone is very eye catchy with its glass body and aluminum frame. The phone fits the hand easily and the curved edges of the phone are allowing better grip. The body weight is reasonable as well which makes it easy to use for a longer period. The rear side of the phone is very appealing and eye-catchy especially the design which it possesses and we got to review the starry night color version of the phone and there are other body color options available. At the backside lies a rectangular frame with quad-camera sensors which are little protruded outside and lifts the body slightly when you put the phone on a flat surface. The front fascia of the phone is dominated by a tall screen with a punch-hole camera sensor at the top. The placement of the buttons is usual just like other OPPO phones where the power button lies on the right side whereas the volume rockers lie on the left side of the phone. The top side of the phone is blank and at the bottom lies a dual SIM tray, Type-C USB port, and speaker outlet. The fingerprint sensor is inbuilt on display which is very quick to respond. The face unlock feature of the phone is very accurate as well and it works perfectly even in dim lighting conditions.
OPPO Reno 5Pro 5G comes with 6.55 inches Super OLED screen with a 90Hz refresh rate. The tasks performed on screen were very smooth as the fluid screen with its refresh rate adds extra fun to it. The gaming experience due to the refresh rate was very good especially while playing intense games with a quick response like Freefire. The screen has an aspect ratio of 20:9 which offers wide viewing angles. The phone has a screen resolution of 1080×2400 pixels and has 402ppi density. The visibility of the screen is very good and it is quite easily visible even under bright daylight. The punch hole is placed very strategically as it did not come in the way while playing games.
The new OPPO Reno5Pro 5G comes with the latest Color OS 11.1 on top of Android 11. The latest OS has acclimatized apps that are allowed within Indian sovereignty. The latest OS has new smart features as well which you can take advantage of while using the phone.
Very interestingly OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G comes with Mediatek MT6889Z Dimensity 1000+ (7nm) chipset with eight octa cores where four cores are clocked at 2.6 GHz Cortex-A77 and four cores are clocked at 2.0 GHz Cortex-A55. The new processor MediaTek MT6889Z Dimensity 1000+ is a surely powerful processor and when compared to Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 865 it surely achieves the feat which Qualcomm Processor has achieved but still, the Qualcomm 865 processor has the edge over MediaTek MT6889Z Dimensity processor. The overall performance of the processor is very smooth and we did not encounter any lag while multitasking or playing heavy games. The gaming experience is also very good and the Mali-G77 MC9 offers high graphic content enabling you to play heavy games in their top-notch quality. The phone comes with 8GB RAM and 128GB ROM configuration and there is no slot to expand the memory of the phone. The 8GB RAM of the phone assists the processor quite well. The overall analysis of the processor and the performance seems very satisfying as the new processor holds quite an amazing power to deliver amazing performance.
OPPO since its entry into the Indian smartphone market has improved its camera capability with every new launch and has lived up to its tag of camera-centric phone. The company with its launch of OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G has further refined its camera capability as the new OPPO Reno5 Pro is capable of delivering stunning lively images.

The secondary sensor is an 8MP ultrawide lens with an aperture of f/2.2. The third sensor is a 2MP macro lens with an aperture of f/2.4. The fourth sensor is a 2 MP depth sensor. The images captured by the rear sensor were brilliant with very fine details. The images replicated the portrayal of the real world very accurately with proper color saturation. The macro shots captured every fine detail with greater accuracy. The rear sensor can capture in Live HDR mode as well. The images captured at night were stunning as well and the quality of the images was very good as well. The new Reno5 Pro has surely improved the capability of capturing clear images at night. The AI technology of the phone adjusts the level of light according to the environment and delivers super detailed images.

The portraits are good if the phone is held properly. Like always, it comes with filters if you need them.
OPPO Reno 5 Pro 5G comes with 4,350mAh battery power. The battery power of the Reno5 Pro is surely enough to make it last a day and while reviewing the phone we found out that the phone discharges very slowly and even after intense hours of playing games and watching movies the phone was able to keep some battery power left to make throughout the day. The phone comes with 65W Super VOOC 2.0 fast charger which charges the battery completely in almost 30-40 minutes from 0% to 100%.
