Oppo Reno5 Pro+ Review
The OPPO Reno 10x zoom version, which was born together with the “Reno” series, is still fresh in our minds. OPPO Reno 10x Zoom is the first to pioneer the mechanical lift structure body and 10x hybrid zoom technology, so the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom Edition is a complete package of many new solutions that were first transformed into mass production.
Among the three models of the OPPO Reno5 series released this month, OPPO Reno5 and OPPO Reno5 Pro and flagship OPPO Reno5 Pro+. The Reno5 Pro+ is the most powerful model in the OPPO Reno series to date, maintaining the Reno5 family’s thin and slim design language, with a body thickness of only 7.99mm and a weight of only 184g. It also packs a large 4500 mAh battery with 65W fast charging into such a limited body space.
As the hardcore of the Reno5 series, OPPO Reno5 Pro+ is naturally equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 flagship processor, which differentiates it from the other two models. The camera system is also equipped with OPPO FDF full-dimensional portrait video technology system, as well as the new upgraded AI video enhancement and video super anti-shake 3.0, etc. It is worth noting that OPPO Reno5 Pro+ brings the Sony IMX766 main camera CMOS jointly developed with Sony, which gives a glimpse of its high positioning.
Finally, the positioning of the Reno series has changed from the original fashion trend to both fashion and performance. So that OPPO’s Reno5 series is a new beginning for Reno, it combines the building technology, photography technology, cell phone performance of these three in one phone, and this one phone is equipped with Snapdragon 865 SoC OPPO Reno5 Pro+. Here is the Oppo Reno5 Pro+ Review from AnTuTu Benchmark written by Wanglei.
AnTuTu received the OPPO Reno5 Pro+ is still in the engineering version, so there is no phone box and other things, only a bare metal, and the system version is not the official ColorOS, is the internal system version number, will be pushed once a day to update, so all the content of this article is based on this version of the phone.
2. OPPO Reno5 Pro+ Specifications

From the front screen of the phone alone, OPPO Reno5 Pro+ and the Reno5 Pro front appearance is almost identical, still using the front perforated screen, the location of the perforation is also still in the upper left corner, high sense curved screen, 90Hz refresh rate, OLED screen.
The difference is the outer bezel of the screen. The outer bezel of the OPPO Reno5 Pro+ is made with a right-angle design, which is more angular to the touch, while the OPPO Reno5 Pro is rounded overall.
OPPO Reno5 Pro+ back design is also the use of OPPO’s new Reno Glow 2.0 star diamond process, through extremely fine etching to change the microscopic form of the glass surface, pyramid-shaped crystal structure throughout the back panel, delicate, shiny, but also anti-fingerprint, thousands of refractive index of different nano-film cohesion, the color changes with light and shadow.
This kind of back case when you look at the publicity diagram alone will feel very interesting, very design, but also limited to this, because do not get the real machine you are not able to experience that colorful dazzling sense when you get the phone and in any place where there is light to rotate the phone, will be instantly convinced and amazed by the changing colors, the original gradient color can do “gradient”, rather than only fixed into a so-called gradient color.
Lens, Reno5 Pro+ as a super large cup of existence, must also be and the first two to open the gap, it uses a combination of four camera lens, four lenses are 50-megapixel IMX766 main camera + 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle + 16-megapixel telephoto + 2-megapixel macro combination, which, IMX766 main camera lens is OPPO and Sony jointly developed.
The IMX766 main camera lens is a new lens sensor jointly developed by OPPO and Sony, and it is the first to be equipped on the Reno5 Pro+ phone, which shows the importance OPPO attaches to the Reno5 Pro+ phone, Sony’s lens, and OPPO’s photo tuning, I believe it will bring users more excellent image capabilities.
Besides, the camera lens module of OPPO Reno5 Pro+ does not use the same luminous design as OPPO Reno5 Pro, probably because the lens is different, so the lens module of OPPO Reno5 Pro+ has a silver matte finish, which looks just like the high-end lens color scheme of some SLR cameras, giving a stronger feeling in the color scheme’s professionalism.
The top of the OPPO Reno5 Pro+ also retains the design of the luminous strip and the “DESIGNED FOR RENO” logo is still there; the bottom of the phone is different from the design of the OPPO Reno5 Pro. The OPPO Reno5 Pro+ has the same speaker, Type-C port, and SIM card slot as the OPPO Reno5 Pro, but the bottom of the phone has a pure flat design as the top, making the OPPO Reno5 Pro+ one of the few phones in the market that can be placed upright on the desktop.
The OPPO Reno5 Pro+ is the largest of the three Reno5 phones in terms of feel and weight, no way, after all, its price and performance is also the strongest, but even the largest, less than 190g weight it is still in the flagship machine is considered one of the thin and light phones.
4. User Interface
As mentioned earlier, because OPPO Reno5 Pro+ is an engineering machine that was obtained in advance this time, the system version is an internal test system that is updated every day, and not a production version of ColorOS, so here we can only briefly talk about the features of ColorOS 11.1 following the official content at the launch, after all, although OPPO Reno5 Pro+ is a very large cup product, in the system version, everyone is treated equally.
OPPO Reno5 Pro+ this time one of the key points is the system 30 months of smooth escort, this phone passed the Chinese Thiel laboratory 30 months system anti-aging performance test, 30 months is how long classmates? Two and a half years ah, how long is the life of the Android phone? In the case of doing not card is also almost this period, right?
The first time I used it, I didn’t notice that it was in the middle of a game because I suddenly had other things to do and just rested the screen without quitting the game or locking the background, and after a few minutes I unlocked the phone and found the four words “Lightning Start” flashing in the center of the screen, and then the game was instantly online automatically.
The lightning start with the most intelligent way to your most frequently played games to achieve a second open experience, do not drop the line, do not pit teammates, which is the most basic professionalism as a gamer.
You connect the above two features to think about, as an Android phone, using two and a half years the phone is still smooth and not lagging, and the game and can flash into the hot start not pitted teammates, and it is equipped with Snapdragon 865 SoC, this is still the Reno we know?
OPPO’s ColorOS is a cell phone operating system that I am now very optimistic about, it brings a feeling of not only beauty and ease of use, but more also is OPPO the system team in the humanities and trends of thinking and combination, and more rare is OPPO Reno5 series in terms of design did not give the slightest sense of design system drag, the combination of the two is enough to bring a new height and appreciation of OPPO Reno5.
Three, photo and video: Reno5 Pro+ this time, the combination of lens parameters for 50-megapixel IMX766 main camera (1/1.56-inch large base, single 1.0μm large pixel) + 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle + 13-megapixel telephoto + 2-megapixel macro quad camera, as OPPO joint research and development of Sony’s new sensor, it debuted on Reno5 Pro+, visible OPPO for the importance of this phone, and these two companies have an excellent history in the impact of this cooperation to bring the sensor, but also let me look forward to extra, we still look at the sample photos first.
The first is the rear lens sample part, the photo mode is automatic, the photo is only compressed size processing, not after any post-modification P map.
You can see that the bokeh of the background of the plant, the subject and the background of the picture between the cut sense to do very pleasingly to the eye, it can be said to shoot the effect of the SLR level picture, although the phone now has the function of background bokeh, but to do authenticity and look no edge of the smear sense or very difficult; another large building, the overall sample of the tone are cold, which is also the winter weather. The main building is very obvious in the lines, after zooming in on the edge part also did not produce distortion, still horizontal and vertical, plus the sky is light blue, the overall picture of the depression is in line with the real environment at the time.
The OPPO Reno5 Pro+ photo can be said to have achieved the first echelon of camera photography, Sony’s hardware + OPPO’s software tuning, bringing the effect of the photo effect is naturally undoubted, and the Reno5 Pro+ debut again proves the importance of this phone.
The maximum zoom magnification of Reno5 Pro+ is also 20x like Reno5 Pro, and the specific sample photos are as follows.
In terms of zoom, OPPO Reno5 Pro+ does not use a periscopic telephoto lens, so in the face of some ultra-long focal lengths when using the effect of the hybrid zoom, but the good thing is that this technology is also very mature, so from the sample effect is still satisfactory.
The night scene photo is still the largest photo effect comparison that can be seen with the naked eye, in addition to the still eye-catching night vision like the night effect, you can also see in the buildings and grass places OPPO Reno5 Pro+ although they have increased the brightness, the details are still clearer presentation, compared to the blurred mass without night vision, night mode can bring more scene information to the user, this is very practical.
As a mega-cup model, OPPO Reno5 Pro+ is of course equipped with OPPO’s exclusive FDF full-dimensional portrait video technology system. When using OPPO Reno5 Pro+ for video shooting, the camera can make targeted optimization of the human subject and the overall picture to jointly achieve the shooting effect of human beauty and scenery beauty, and it also carries the video super anti-shake 3.0 feature.
Author have already tested the video daytime and night scene in my previous review of Reno5 Pro, and this time I bring you a demonstration of OPPO Reno5 Pro+’s super anti-shake test effect and AI video enhancement effect.
In general, although OPPO Reno5 Pro+ has improved compared to OPPO Reno5 Pro in terms of lens, but the actual sample effect and video test results, if not with the kind of faultfinding attitude to a little bit of fine key, most ordinary consumers can not see the gap, after all, the system version is the same, in the same function, just as the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro lens effect comparison.
Performance, OPPO Reno5 Pro+ this time brought the last generation of Qualcomm flagship SoC Snapdragon 865, Snapdragon 888 has been released, although no new machine equipped with it has been released, there is no doubt that the score will certainly be higher than 865, and it is also likely that OPPO Reno5 Pro+ will be the last new phone equipped with Snapdragon 865.
Although the release of a new machine equipped with Snapdragon 865 at this point looks a bit awkward, it is significant for the OPPO Reno series of phones, which represents the positioning of the Reno series has changed in OPPO’s product line, it is no longer a mid-range model, but also can be a flagship model, because even if it is the last generation of flagship SoC, its performance is undeniable.
The Snapdragon 865 is already familiar to everyone, so I’m not going to elaborate too much on its parameters here, let’s look directly at the results of the AnTuTu score test, I have the 8GB+128GB version of the OPPO Reno5 Pro+ score of 662137 points, a storage test score of 56034, like Qualcomm’s 2020 masterpiece, the Snapdragon 865 is still strong.
Reno5 Pro+ uses a 4500mAh battery this time, compared to Reno5 Pro has a 150mAh capacity increase, so the thickness of the body has also increased a bit, but still achieved within 8mm, very uncomfortable.
In terms of battery consumption, I carried out 30 minutes of “Peace Elite” after the battery fell from 48% to 34% of the beginning of the play, the power consumption of 14%, the game screen quality, and frame rate settings support open to smooth + 90 fps, while open anti-aliasing, OPPO game space is also synchronized to start, in this kind of image quality Snapdragon 865 has long proved its strength countless times, so naturally do not have to worry about the game will lag, open up to play is.
In the test of another popular game “Original God”, the frame rate can be adjusted to 60 fps, while the screen rendering and special effects quality can be adjusted to the “high” level.
In the case of the original Gods test, the battery consumption dropped from 44% to 25% in 30 minutes of playtime, dropping 19% of the power, and the heating of the phone during the test was more obvious than in the case of Elite Peace, but this situation has a lot to do with the system version, because the author’s phone is an internal beta version, so this is the case, but the actual market after the OPPO Reno5 Pro+ is what it is, but the official version of ColorOS shall prevail.
In terms of charging, I started charging when the battery was depleted to 2% remaining (here we recommend that you use the “stress test” function of the AnTuTu update if you need to quickly deplete the phone’s battery for charging tests, which supports custom testing time and quickly depletes the battery without damaging the phone), although I only have a barebones machine, because the Reno5 series is equipped with 65W fast charging as standard, I used the Reno5 Pro’s original charger kit for charging, which is also in line with the original test requirements.
The entire charging process from 2% to 100% took only 27 minutes, of which 15 minutes to charge up to 66% of the power, more than half, for the OPPO family’s famous 65W super-fast charging I have experienced many times, but still every time I feel very surprised and very enjoyable, after getting used to this charging speed, you will feel very slow in using other phones below this charging number, but this is actually like Takumi driving, not the surrounding objects become slower, but we have become accustomed to faster and faster.
OPPO Reno5 Pro+ as Reno5 series of oversized cup models, but also as the first Reno series of products equipped with flagship SoC models, it marks a new goal of OPPO for Reno series of products positioning, Reno series in the past may only exist as offline models or fan-only models, and OPPO this time it is clear that it wants to let some users on the line can also accept it and feel its strength.
And what is the strength of the Reno series of phones? The Reno5 series has made these two points the ultimate: Reno Glow Star Diamond Process 2.0, less than 8mm body thickness, less than 190g body weight, 65W super flash charging, these are all unique to the Reno5 series of phones, don’t think these are simple, compared to the polishing of the phone process. The OPPO Reno series phones have been doing this, and in this OPPO Reno5 Pro+, the ultimate.
