Oppo Reno 8 Pro – Video Review

The Oppo Reno series is the Chinese brand’s mid-range smartphone family, with the Reno 8 Pro being the latest device to reach global markets.

The family is generally known for marrying solid specifications with a premium design, and the Reno 8 Pro is no different. In fact, to be fair, the Reno 8 Pro is probably the most beautiful ‘mainstream’ smartphone of the year.

The phone features a glass back and curved edges with construction that catches the light from all angles. The sales bundle contains the phone, a cover Enco X2 earphones, and an Oppo Watch Free.

The construction of the camera department is beautiful, with a raised section for the sensors. Beware of the materials: very slippery indeed, so using a cover is more than recommended. At the heart of the Reno 8 Pro is Mari Silicon. The company’s processor that optimizes performance and photo work leading to top-quality shots and videos.

The price of this phone is not the most competitive in the mid-range segment however given the bundle it is an absolute value package in terms of quality and quantity.
