Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G Review
|Pros: Great build quality, camera quality is great during daylight conditions, okay performance||Cons: No headphone jack anymore, design repetitive, Dimensity 1000+ chipset not for hard gaming|
The new Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G is here and is compatible with 5G this time. This year, the Reno 5 Pro was launched with a faster performance chipset, a larger battery, and new camera features. The long-awaited MediaTek Dimension 1000+ chip features the Reno 5 Pro.
Given this is the first telephone to use this chip, it is interesting to see how high its output is in daily use or gaming. We have here our analysis to learn about its success and more.

Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G Review: Shape, build, design, and display
The Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G takes several design signals from Reno 4 Pro on the first step. The Reno 5 Pro is light and compact with a textured feeling on the back. The Reno 5 Pro and its predecessor were inspired by the Find X2 that was started last year.
We got the Astral Blue edition that looked pretty good. The frame is polycarbonate and bright, while the back is matte. In fact, the most important aspect is that it is not a magnet with a fingerprint. It is a textured panel.
At the bottom of the frame, sports are a dual SIM, a USB TypeC, and a single speaker, and the bottom side is the letter ‘Designed for Oppo.’ The power button and volume rocker keys are on the right and left sides of the frame. There is no 3.5 mm headphone port, as we mentioned above. The Reno 4 Pro has done that.
The Reno 5 Pro – a 6.5-inch “borderless sense panel” is the highlight of this show. At a high brightness of 1,100 nits, the screen is transparent for daytime and even for direct sunlight. The table is AMOLED and is curved at the edges of Full-HD+. The monitor also receives a 180Hz touch and a 90Hz refresh rate – good characteristics when we view movies or videos on the tablet. The screen is certified HDR10+ as well.
The display is a scratch-resistant glass of Panda, but the face of this display offers a clear screen shield. A corning gorilla 5 panel protects the display.
The Reno 5 Pro’s overall architecture is striking. Despite the design now having three classifications – we hope that Oppo plans a new design for the Reno 6.

Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G Review: Software and performance
The new MediaTek Dimension 1000+ chip is one of the highlights of the Reno 5 Pro hardware. Last year in May 2020, the chipset was revealed and was launched first on the Reno 5 Pro in India. The 1000+ dimension of the chipset is the opposite of the 865 Snapdragon chipset.
Four Cortex-A77 ARM cores and four Cortex-A55 ARM cores are included in the Dimensions 1000+ chipset. It also features the newest WiFi 6 networking and Bluetooth 5.1 with an integrated 5G modem.
The Reno 5 Pro is equipped with teeth in terms of hardware. In terms of its armed features, the Reno 5 Pro features a huge 65W Find X2 Series charging brick.
The Reno 5 Pro is built on the new Android 11.1 ColorOS. In our earlier ColorOS analysis, the GUI is more or less like in the Find X2.
The current version of ColorOS offers a wealth of new features. It includes a large customization, such as a change of faces of the AOD watch, three dark mode intensities, and a new Game Space menu that can be summoned to play from the left.
Oppo’s and third-party developers’ bloatware is supplied by Reno 5 Pro – which is easy to install. Opposite applications include Music, the Browser, the Store and so on. No advertisements were present in the user interface, however.
The Reno 5 Pro OS also included something known as FlexDrop to minimize application in an immersive floating window or smaller view-only panels.
The overall output is all right, as long as you swip applications, use social networks in full, and use cameras. We found no problems with the efficiency of Reno 5 Pro on a regular basis and we switched the application smoothly.
The Reno 5 Pro is a hardy performance. We’ve been trying some games such as Mobile, Real Racing 3 and PUBG Mobile. Nearly every game played pretty well when offline. The fight against the PUBG Mobile’s Royal Stages needed much more than the Dimension 1000+ chip will take and we had to make use of it in balanced graphics.
Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G Review: Camera
The Reno 4 Pro stressed the importance of cameras – while the Reno 5 Pro stressed nothing. The module is a small piece of bright plastic with three large lenses and a small lens – together with an LED light.
Instead of the 48-megapixel sensor that has reached Reno 4 Pro, the camera module is controlled by a 64-megapixel sensor. Besides, the other camera features are the same – an ultrawide angle 8-megapixel camera, a 2-megapixel macro and a monochrome 2-megapixel sensor. The 32 MP camera for selfies upfront is provided by the Reno 5 Pro.
The Reno 5 Pro is supplied with a new camera feature known as the “AI Highlight Video” which pumps in light in the images. The effect is also HDR – according to the available quantity of light. It gets an image-in-image mode as well. A similar set of previous features are available: Ultra Steady Video, AI Color Portrait, Pro Mode, and many more.
The Reno 5 Pro can capture photographs with a large number of light and clear information in terms of picture quality. The white balance is sufficiently accurate and the colors are vibrant – not saturated. Near shots are fine – but ultra-wide shots are all right and not many specifics are available. Photos have a warmer color tone with the AI Scene Enhancement. Overall, the Reno 5 Pro cameras are sufficiently decent.

Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G Review: Battery
The Reno 5 Pro is equipped with a 4350mAh battery for a full day with a low to moderate use without serious tasks like gaming. We were able to push about 17 hours with a maximum charge, with gaming included and moderate to heavy call usage, social media, and browser use.
The Reno 5 Pro is powered with a 65W power stone in the box – that means you can charge your battery in about 30 minutes from less than 10 to 100 percent.
Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G Review: Price in Pakistan
Although it’s repetitive, the curved lines at the edges and curved display are still nice in design, the Reno 5 Pro gives it a real standing preference over all phones we’ve tested in the same hardware area. The reality is, however, that the price is the choppy Rs 104,999,00, which is the OnePlus region. It is very difficult to recommend if you’re a gaming user.
The Reno 5 Pro would be the one we recommend if you were somebody who loves good design and excellent day results – along with the AMOLED 90Hz monitor and the crazy 65W charger brick.
