The OPPO Reno 10x Zoom Review: Bezeless Zoomby Andrei Frumusanu on September 18, 2019 10:00 AM EST

Following our Snapdragon 855 device overview, we should be relatively familiar with how the Xiaomi Mi9 performs. The chipset is by now a very well known component and various devices with the silicon will only ever differ by the software stack implementation by the vendor.
In Xiaomi’s case in the Mi9, I didn’t see anything particularly standing out for the phone, performing quite well but also not particularly distinguishing itself as being among the best nor worst performers amongst its Snapdragon 855 siblings.
Unfortunately, in the default mode in PCMark, the Reno 10x didn’t quite keep up with some other Snapdragon 855 devices, ending with actually some of the worst scores amongst its competition, something particularly visible in the web browsing and writing sub-tests. Here it looks like Oppo chose to tune the software quite conservatively compared to other vendors.
In the JS browser performance tests, we also find that the Reno 10x lands amongst the lower performance devices, although the absolute differences here are more minor.
In my subjective experience with the phone, it’s again much like on other Snapdragon 855 phones: Whilst the Oppo does feel ever so slightly slower than other flagship devices, the difference isn’t all that big and it’s still a plenty fast phone. I suppose it’s a balance Oppo chose to make in order to improve the battery efficiency of the phone, which we’ll get back to in a later section.

ElFenix - Wednesday, September 18, 2019 - linkan honest to goodness telephoto camera in a phone, not just a marketing BS one!
melgross - Wednesday, September 18, 2019 - linkNo, mostly a marketing BS one.
Arbie - Wednesday, September 18, 2019 - linkNo headphone jack, no sale.
FYI, on the low light page you're missing some words in "it looks like the phone 20-30% of the highlights" .
SanX - Thursday, September 19, 2019 - linkHow about comparing the phone with broader range cheaper phones like UMIDIGI etc with other processors. They cost 5-10x less than Apple, Google or Samsung but definitely are not 5-10x worse, not even mentioning this OPPO phone.
The_Assimilator - Thursday, September 19, 2019 - linkBut does it have gangnam style?
Psyside - Thursday, September 19, 2019 - linkSamsung has improved the night mode DRAMATICALLY, and also not only the Exynos get on pair with the Snapdragon, but now the exynos even manage to be better in low light, holy shit.
And also bye bye Pixel, Samsung is so better in low light now its only bested by P30 pro and (maybe?) the new iPhones.
