Our verdict

Oppo returns to the mid-range with the Reno Z, a phone with great battery life and a very pretty design.

Oppo made its name in Australia with a range of innovative and low-cost phones that provided superior value to competing phones of the time.

In many ways that's exactly what the Oppo Reno Z is. It's a gorgeous looking phone that's a lot of fun to use in most cases, but in 2019, there's even more pressure in the mid-range to compete. The Reno Z doesn't stand alone in the mid-range the way previous Oppo phones may have, but it's certainly worth your consideration.

Pricing & Availability

Launch price (RRP) $499
Launch date 2019-07
Oppo Reno Z

In years past, Oppo's budget and mid-range lines had their own naming schemes, but in 2019, it appears that everything Oppo will be a Reno.

Not a renovated phone, but instead one carrying the Reno suffix. We've already seen the Reno 5G, and its slightly cheaper Reno 10x Zoom phone, and it's now joined by the much more affordable Oppo Reno Z.

It's a good-looking phone, but one that launches into a mid-range market that's genuinely more competitive than it has been in years.


  • Gorgeous gradient finish at a budget price
  • In-display fingerprint reader works well

  • Selfies can be spectacular – or frightening

  • Low-end processor, but plenty of RAM
  • No expandable storage
  • ColorOS still feels messy
  • Good audio output if you need an ad-hoc speaker

If you're a fan of Oppo phones and want a bit more camera oomph, consider the Oppo R17 Pro.

In the mid-range space, Google's Pixel 3a looms large for its combination of amazing camera performance and slick, pared-down Android OS. It's a little more pricey than the Oppo Reno Z, however.

You could also consider the Samsung Galaxy A70 or Samsung Galaxy A50 if you want a phone with a large OLED display and dual camera options.
