Not to be mixed up with the Oppo Reno3 Pro, which was discharged back in March 2020, the Oppo Reno3 Pro 5G which we have for audit here is now advancing toward Europe and other pieces of the world after a fruitful introduction in China.
Curiously, Oppo has chosen to sell the phone as Reno3 Pro 5G in Australia, and Eastern Europe, though in Western Europe the phone will be known as Find X2 Neo.
With that out of the way, from here on, we will call the phone Reno3 Pro 5G in light of the fact that this is the name of the gadget we got however remember that our survey discoveries will undoubtedly apply to the Find X2 Neo, too.
Despite the name, the phone will draw your attention with solid equipment and premium design. The key standout features are the 5G connectivity (duh!), the 90Hz AMOLED screen, the full arrangement of camera focal lengths (normal, ultra-wide, and telephoto), the exceptional design, and belief, and the 30W quick charging. It also comes with a base storage of 128GB.

However, the 5G connectivity probably won’t be a favourable position compared to other correspondingly valued solutions as it drives the cost up, and there’s no real convenience in the better piece of Europe. You’d battle to locate a working 5G network in Europe, particularly in Eastern Europe, where the phone will sell. What’s more, in average Oppo style, the company has opted for a somewhat premium dispatch sticker price in an excessively competitive market segment.
With a beginning cost of around €630-660 (that is, in any event, the normal cost of the Reno3 Pro 5G according to the Find X2 Neo cost in the UK), the phone has a lot of proving to do alongside the more settled brands in the European market that can afford to charge a value premium. What’s more, let’s be honest, 5G-capacities won’t be such a gigantic buy drive in 2020 on the old continent where the interest for mid-run 5G gadgets is lower than in Asia.
Yet, that doesn’t mean there aren’t other reasons to consider Oppo’s contender for your next upper mid-extend smartphone. How about we perceive how the battery tolls, and furthermore if the screen is any good and how it holds as an everyday driver.
Unboxing the Oppo Reno3 Pro 5G
The phone comes in a standard bundle with the typical client manuals, the compatible VOOC 4.0 charger topped at 30W, USB-A to USB-C link, and a straightforward protective silicone case. Curiously, there’s a couple of USB-C earphones, which is decent since the phone doesn’t have a 3.5mm audio jack.
Despite the fact that it’s not really a leader, the Reno3 Pro 5G does give us a vibe of a lead phone. There’s absolutely no common ground in such manner between the Oppo Reno3 Pro that we investigated back in March and the Pro 5G directly here. The last comes with Gorilla Glass 5 protection on the front and back held together by an anodized aluminium outline. The bottom is level and helps us to remember the Huawei P40-series while the sides are bent. They connect consistently with the front and back glass sheets, and it’s even difficult to feel an edge. The ebbs and flows on the front and back are symmetrical and cause the gadget to show up slender. Truly, 7.7mm is surely very dainty.
The Reno3 Pro 5G is also deceivingly light. Certainly, 171g isn’t record-breaking, yet given the screen size and the 4,025mAh battery, we need to give it credit for that. Feeling a little bottom-substantial, the gadget is solid and sits comfortably close by. That doesn’t mean it’s not dangerous, though. It’s as yet a glass sandwich phone so don’t anticipate that it should be grippe.
Discussing glass, the paint job doesn’t make the fingerprints less obvious. As we as a whole know, the glass will be glass, and glass makes fingerprints and smudges stick. Oh, and indeed, it also breaks. We were delighted to see the camera knock not being so meddling. It’s standing out inside reasonable edges.
The front is surrounded by a flimsy edge, with the top and bottom one looking almost symmetrical. There’s also insignificant colour move to the sides around the shapes probably on the grounds that not much from the genuine OLED board has been bent.
What’s more, having a bent display with a punch-hole, you are bound to lose some screen real estate in light of the fact that the camera can’t be put on the bend leaving somewhat too much-unused space between the bezel and the cut-out.
Other than that, we can say that the phone has a heavenly design and ergonomics. It feels solid, yet flimsy and light without yielding equipment features along the way. The battery limit is perfect for 2020 just as the camera count, and the screen is enormous – huge contributing factors to the phone’s weight.
The Reno3 Pro 5G doesn’t boast an exceptionally high battery limit. Indeed, it’s just about the normal you’d anticipate from a phone nowadays no issue if it’s a mid-ranger or a leader. However, the outcomes from our battery tests are a long way from normal. The phone scored precisely 100h overall endurance rating with more than not too bad backup runtimes and brilliant screen-on results on our web browsing and video playback tests.
We ran all the tests in its default 90Hz mode so exchanging over to 60Hz may give you some additional better battery life however we doubt it would be huge on the grounds that Oppo will flawlessly switch down to 60Hz when the high-revive rate isn’t required.
