Oppo Reno 5G

The Oppo Reno 5G provides great application performance and amazing battery life.

The good

  • Amazing battery life.
  • Snapdragon 855 provides great app performance.
  • 5G ready for future networks.
  • Flexible camera.

The bad

  • Selfie camera slow to pop up.
  • At launch 5G isn't that fast.
  • No water resistance.
  • No wireless charging.
  • No headphone jack.

Oppo stepped into the flagship world in 2018 with the Oppo Find X, having spent many years selling mid-range and budget phones of exceptional value. The Find X was an interesting phone, but one that failed to stand out against its competition.

The good news here for Oppo fans is that it's produced a much better phone in the Oppo Reno 5G.

Design

  • Full screen design.
  • Pop up camera fin.
  • No headphone jack.
  • A phone for larger hands.

Camera

  • Triple lens with hybrid zoom.
  • Selfie camera is slow to fire up.
  • Oppo's camera app needs to embrace flexibility.

Performance

  • Snapdragon 855 is a performance beast.
  • ColorOS is slowly shifting to a more Android feel.
  • 5G isn't a great reason to buy the Reno 5G by itself.

Battery life

  • 4,065mAh battery delivers class-leading battery life.
  • Fast VOOC charging.
  • No wireless charging.

Oppo Reno 5G: Verdict

  • Great performance and battery life.
  • Design robs it of some premium features.
  • The most affordable 5G phone for now.

Pricing and availability

  • The Oppo Reno 5G will go on sale in Australia for $1,499 outright
  • Also on contract terms through Telstra
  • Should eventually come to Optus

Oppo Reno 5G

Oppo's first 5G phone

The Oppo Reno 5G connects to superfast 5G networks, but also has a triple camera and high-speed processor. Buy yours today.

Promoted

The Oppo Reno 5G is available outright for $1,499 or on contract terms with Telstra over 24 months.

Oppo hyped up its "first" 5G phone at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and at that event it announced that both Telstra and Optus would sell an Oppo 5G phone.

Telstra's the first provider to launch mobile 5G plans, so the Oppo Reno 5G is available through Telstra first.

Optus should end up with the Oppo Reno 5G eventually, or possibly its successor, but as yet its only 5G offering is a fixed home broadband service. If you're an Optus customer, you'll have to wait on availability.
