Oppo Reno 10 Pro 5G Review: design and display
The Oppo Reno 10 Pro has been released in two color choices — Silvery Grey and Glossy Purple. The latter is the one we have, which is quite unique compared to other phones launched in green tones and black. The phone features a curved back panel and frame. The back glass is a highlight of this phone. Oppo Reno 10 Pro offers an exceptional feel when held. What makes this even better is the slim and lightweight design. This Reno 10 Pro is about 7.89mm thick and weighs around 185g. There have indeed been times that the phone slips out of my hand because of the smooth finish of the phone’s back.
The Oppo Reno 10 Pro is very attractive. The colors and the design make it appear like a higher-end smartphone. The metallic shine also is effective in covering up smudges and fingerprints. While the back panel is composed of glass, the frame is plastic. The phone features volume and power buttons at the top of the screen and is easy to access with large hands.
On the front of the phone, Oppo Reno 10 Pro has a 6.7-inch AMOLED screen with an HD+ resolution (2412 pixels by 1080 pixels), and it has a 20.1:9 aspect ratio. Similar to other phones like the Vivo V27 Pro and 11R from OnePlus, as well as a couple of budget-friendly options like that of the Motorola Edge40 , The screen in Reno 10 Pro 5G is curving to the sides. I didn’t experience ghosts or accidental touches when playing games or scrolling on the smartphone.
The only thing I had issues with was the speaker setup. For a smartphone priced under Rs. 40000, it’s essential to have a dual-speaker configuration which is why it’s extremely disappointing that Oppo has only offered just one speaker on the Reno Pro 5G. Additionally, a 3.5mm headphone jack is absent, either. The speaker can be quite powerful on the bright side, but the sound experience is not as engaging.
On the positive side, the 120Hz display provides as much as 950nits peak brightness when watching HDR content. It supports HDR playback via YouTube. However, it is not available on Netflix as of the moment when I wrote this. The vivid 10-bit display provides support for billion colors. Oppo uses An AGC Dragontrail 2 glass that provides 20% more drop resistance than the Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
I didn’t notice any major stutters moving through the user interface, even though it was configured for Auto Switch. However, there were a few software-related issues, which we’ll discuss in the next section.

It comes with connectivity options like WiFi 6. Bluetooth 5.2 Dual-SIM support, IR emitter, etc. This model is equipped with 14 5G bands available in India.
Software-wise, in terms of software, this Oppo Reno 10 Pro 5G is running the latest ColorOS 13.1 that is based on Android 13. Oppo’s ColorOS has changed and is one of the top choices for personalization and customization. Its Reno 10 Pro continues to offer users the possibility to alter wallpapers, change the shape and size of the front, alter icon shape and size, etc.
The app also supports Android 13. It also supports the Material You theme, which is compatible with both the background and UI colors with the wallpaper’s colors. Oppo also lets users select when they want to use various color options available to choose from the UI, along with system icons within the Settings app. Further details on ColorOS 13.1 are available within the review of the Oppo Reno 10 Pro and 5G review.
Although ColorOS 13.1 is packed with features, it’s awash with ads and app recommendations through its user interface, whether it’s the setup screen, bloatware loaded home screen or app drawer, or app recommendations in the default browser application. There’s also a variety of less-popular games and third-party apps that are preinstalled. App Market, Oppo’s official App Store, bombards users with numerous notifications and suggests you install certain apps.
Oppo has taken feedback into consideration and has announced that any apps that do not require permission for installation when first installing phones will not be allowed to improve user experience in the next version of the software. The difference is that Hot Games and Hot Apps, which are Oppo’s app recommendation folders, will be accessible. Users can block the folders by going to App Market, General Settings, tapping the settings in the top of the right-hand corner, and turning off the toggle on Hot Apps and Hot Games. You can also deactivate the spam notifications for recommendations by pressing long upon one or more notifications and clicking on ‘More Settings,’ and turning off the toggle ‘Allow Notifications.
But, there is a need to optimize because I saw that the screen’s orientation changed instantly even when the Auto-rotate option was turned off. There were instances when I experienced slight jitters when going back to the home screen. I hope Oppo will fix these issues soon. This Oppo Reno 10 Pro is said to receive 2 major Android updates and security and support for three years.
