    Review : Oppo Reno & Oppo Reno 10X Zoom – Which is for you?

    Oppo’s Reno Series.
    11 Days after launching the Reno Series, Oppo Malaysia launched the Reno 10X Zoom Edition, Oppo’s flagship for the quarter. We at Bunny Gaming have gotten our hands on both devices to compare the differences and the suitability of the device based on usage.

    Unboxing Video

    Device Performance

    Benchmark Environment

    (Disclaimer: As the Reno 10X review unit is a China unit, we had to manually install Google Play and other Google services before we are able to install the other apps)

    Both devices were updated to the latest patch available, with the most commonly used apps installed and running. This is so that the benchmark environment is based on a daily usage scenario.

    List of apps installed:-

    Google Chrome and essential Google apps such as Google Play, Gmail, Gdrive and etc that runs in the background (Reno 10X only)
    Facebook Messenger
    Adobe Acrobat

    Each benchmark is also performed after restarting the device as benchmark processes often lead to a lack of system memory.

    Benchmark Results

    As shown in the chart above, the Reno 10x outperforms the Reno in all 3 benchmarks. The Reno’s performance in GeekBench 4 is slightly better since the benchmark considers the overall phone performance in general and intense graphics processing is not part of its scoring. AnTuTu’s result for the Reno10X was rather impressive as it came in 5th amongst its competitors in the market, and was only 8954 points away from snagging the top spot. (I’m serious, 8954 points is not much of a gap in the terms of AnTuTu scoring.)

    We’ve also tried running GFXBench on both devices but the Reno failed to complete the benchmark process as it ran out of system memory halfway through while the Reno 10X managed to score an average of 49-58fps in the tests.

    Hands-On Performance

    As most of you know, we at Bunny Gaming look at benchmark results as just an “on paper” reference in grading a device for its gaming capabilities. Benchmark numbers do not always do justice towards a device’s capability. With the recent advancements in performance acceleration technologies, they tend to perform much better in popular games in comparison to what’s reported on benchmarks.

    Games used for review:-

        • PUBG (Game engine acceleration supported)
        • AOV (Game engine acceleration supported)
        • Mobile Legends (General system enhancement only)
        • Rules of Survival (General system enhancement only)

    *Game engine supported – Improves gaming performance through custom optimization of both the game and the device
    *General system enhancement only – Optimization of the device only

    Hyper Boost 2.0 – Now with Game Boost 2.0, Touch Boost and Frame Boost

    Oppo is known for its Hyper Boost mobile acceleration technology, and the Hyper Boost 2.0 acceleration engine made its debut with the launch of the Oppo Reno series. Hyper Boost 2.0 is part of Oppo’s ColorOS 6.0 implementation and it incorporates performance optimisation settings such as the Game Boost 2.0, Touch Boost and Frame Boost. Game Boost 2.0 is a gaming acceleration engine with Touch Boost to increase touch responsiveness and Frame Boost to further enhance the frame rate performance.

    Oppo Reno 10X Zoom Edition

    The Snapdragon 855 is without a doubt one of the most powerful chipset in the market at the moment. With the SD855 running the show, the Oppo Reno 10X performed like a champ when it came to the hands-on review. Every game that we tried was at maximum settings and everything went smoothly without any noticeable fps spikes.

    The device performed really well for all four games when we ran them without any system optimisations. The only noticeable difference after switching on the High-Performance setting in Oppo Game Space is a shorter app loading time. Everything else performed as it should and the device temperature was recorded to hover at the average of 36°C to 37°C for CPU and 34°C for the battery.

    We believe that the Reno 10X by itself is a highly tuned device, and the Game Space is somewhat unnecessary for now. The Game Space settings will probably make a difference when games require more processing power in the future.

    Oppo Reno

    The Reno runs on the Snapdragon 710, which is a mid range chip with somewhat decent performance at best. Although it didn’t do well in the benchmarks earlier, it performed way above expectations when it came to the Hands-On Performance review. The Reno managed to run AOV and Mobile Legends on the maximum in-game and device performance settings without any hiccups but the temperature of the device was slightly warmer (CPU 40°C and battery 37°C) in comparison to lower performance setting environments. The casing’s temperature was warm to the touch, just a notch above our average body temperature – which is fine.

    Camera Performance

    Who are we kidding here? We’re not Bunny Camera ISO APERTURE whatsover. We’re Bunny Gaming and the only time we comment about cameras are in game camera modes. Here are some photos that we’ve taken on both devices(auto mode). You be the judge!

    The Oppo Reno 10x Zoom Edition and Reno is priced at RM 3399 and RM 1999 respectively. Before we come to a conclusion lets look at the list of differences first:-

    1. The Reno 10X is more expensive by RM 1400.
    2. The Reno 10X comes with a flagship tier SD 855 chipset while the Reno is powered by the SD 710, a mid range chipset.
    3. Both are Amoled screens with built-in fingerprint sensor but the Reno 10X have a slightly bigger screen (0.2 inches).
    4. The Reno 10X has a lower pixel density (10 dpi).
    5. Both are VOOC 3.0 ready but the Reno 10X has a slightly larger battery capacity (300 mAh).
    6. The Reno 10X have way better camera hardware and an additional wide angle lens.
    7. The Reno 10X is slightly bigger in size.
    8. The pair of earphones that comes with the Reno 10X looks nicer. We like things that look nice. (picture below).

    So which version should you get?

    We find that both devices are highly tuned to perform above its hardware capabilities and the physical build of the device feels pretty robust. Both devices are also delicately designed with reflectional symmetry in mind.

    As with the Oppo F11 Pro that was launched early this year, both devices come with a proper full screen without the existence of the pesky notch and punch out selfie cameras. Although the design of the motorized periscope camera comes off as a little… weird, we aren’t really bothered by it as it kept the display clean.

    Besides the chipset and camera hardware differences, the Reno 10X is just a notch better than the Reno.

    The Oppo Reno is a high performing device with an up to standard dual lens camera with acceptable battery capacity. Although equipped with a mid-range chipset, the performance is a lot better than most of its mid-range competitors. For the casual day-to-day mobile users, you’ll find that the Reno is bang for your buck.

    For those who prefer flagship tier devices, the Reno 10X Zoom Edition is the premium device that you’re looking for. The Reno 10X can be described as the Lamborghini of supercars when you compare it against the other flagships in the market. It’s packed with raw power, tuned for performance, and has all the latest features you can ask for. I might even get a unit for myself – if my wife permits.

    If you’re thinking of getting the Reno 10X after reading this article, do it as soon as possible because Oppo Malaysia is currently running a preorder promotion – which comes with a gimbal stabiliser, 365 days extended device and screen protection warranty.
