We've got a lot of Androids with the highest current configuration with the Snapdragon 855, 8GB of RAM, and we've also witnessed the race of cameras with many lenses, focal points from home to the Moon, … though However, what OPPO Reno 10x chose to create a very personal self is the exterior design and the hidden camera solution in shark fins, turning it into the latest example in the groping Android world. Find ways to be creative, get rid of the boring night that is spreading. However, we still can't deny the unbiased and subjective, prevented Oppo Reno 10x from being a truly high-end and perfect machine.
Most things are beautiful glass
In fact, the 2-glass solution always brings good initial impression both in tact and in sight. That is also the reason why we have seen many high-end smartphones apply this method, including Samsung, Sony or Apple. Oppo said it used Gorrilla Glass for both the front and back of the device. Besides creating a pleasant feeling when holding it, combine with the dark finish layer below the glass, making it harder to see stains and fingerprints. In return, the worry of being easily scratched during use is inevitable.
If the camera cluster is convex, it will be easy to feel insecure, then sink into the machine, lying beneath the glass on the back will also feel similar insecurity. However Oppo gave a pretty good solution when adding a small porcelain that they called O Dot. I like the way they choose colors, the size of the porcelain, just enough to not stand out, but if you look at it, you can still see it as a highlight with the "Oppo green" border on the back. The envoy will lift the machine up 11 degrees from the horizontal and thus help to prevent scratching the camera lens assembly when placing the device in the ceiling position.
However, the use of glass materials on both sides, combined with the submarine technology camera cluster, will push Reno's weight 10x to 215 grams. The feeling of holding in my hand is much heavier than Reno. Someone will say that holding the dress is better, but there will also be people who do not like this weight, especially holding a phone or Facebook or watching videos with one hand. I was lying on the bed reading comic books and almost got face-down by the machine. Europe is also a trade-off to have another aesthetic.
The corners and edges of the device are still rounded properly. The dorsal surface is slightly curved at the two sides while the corner is also rounded strongly, seamlessly with the metal edges, combining the material and the design so the feeling of holding and compacting the hands, without being bothered or annoyed . However, the buttons increase and decrease the volume and the power button is not fixed firmly in a place where the light is slightly clicked, creating the feeling of not being synchronized with the rest of the machine.
Deep fish: not just a method to hide the camera, it's also …
The most impressive point on the Reno series is the shark fin camera with a selfie camera and 2 flashes on both sides. This is not just a solution to conceal the camera inside the machine to create a more overflow screen, it is also an interesting point to use, making Reno temporarily detached from the rest of the world. Android circles are struggling to find ways to not follow the rabbit-ear solution on screen that Apple has started.
Oppo has experienced surging from the Find X and with the shark fin camera, they continue to let go but it is a fan-like edge. The shark fin section takes about 0.8 seconds when it rises, which is quite fast. When installing the unlock with the camera before, when clicking on the power button, the camera runs up and unlocks the machine faster than the fingerprint touch operation on the screen if both modes are selected.
However, once something comes out, from the body of the camera, it will be difficult to have a water-resistant function like many other unibody monolithic machines. On the other hand, you should keep in mind that the fish fin should be thoroughly cleaned so that it will always be beautiful, avoid being stuck to the dust inside after touching in many different environments, many times a day.
Camera from home and … near the Moon
From the name of 10x, Oppo has shaped this to be a camera capable of taking good photos, especially the zoom capability from submarine technology cameras. The camera's UI allows us to zoom each click from 1x, 2x, 6x, 10x and super wide angles. 48MP camera with optical image stabilization gives us good image quality in most situations with sufficient lighting conditions. The default focal length 2x is quite fit for situations that require close-up shooting of food, taking items on hand, …
Focus 6x will essentially get information from the camera zoom submarine 5x focal length and interpolate more information. This is the "middle" focal length for the need for long zoom and if necessary, we will press 10x. At this time, the anti-vibration ability of OIS right on the submarine camera still works, just need to make a little hand, we will have zoom pictures quite impressive and right, but in the light conditions are too weak loss of detail is visible. It is not so bad but it will not be as sharp as in bright enough conditions.
Super wide-angle lens with 8MP resolution gives us an option to capture more subjects in the same photo, large group of friends or even a large architecture. In addition, there will be impressive effects of super wide angle such as bulging, distorted corners, …. However, due to the limitation of resolution, the details of each small subject in the image will be exchanged with this focal length.
But, in low light conditions, the night mode super wide camera gives us much better photos. But if applying night mode to zoom focal lengths that are essentially small apertures will cause images to be damaged in light, the machine will compensate for iso and noise is certain.
The 10x 10x zoom image is truly impressive in low light conditions, including digital zoom focal lengths of up to 20, 50 or even 60x. We will have subjects that can be seen from far away, even if the eyes are hard to see. And of course, the digital zoom will be inversely proportional to the detail of the image, as below is an example of shooting the Moon at 60x from the 17th floor.
The 16MP selfie camera plus the support of the old AI OPPO developed now creates quite virtual selfie photos. The identification of subjects, beauty is not only in skin and acne, but also in many different aspects such as squeezing cheeks, lifting the nose, big eyes, sharp chin, … This, the girls will be better than you in option. Most of the girls I have selfie with are satisfied with the selfie of this machine.
There is still work to do to be better
A direct benefit of hiding the camera in the camera is to reduce the screen edge of the device. Accordingly, we will have a full 6.6-inch screen size on all four sides, enough for a more comfortable movie viewing experience. With this size, brothers who like big machines to look will love it, but if you have small hands, using one hand will feel like you don't like it. Clearly, there are 2 different schools.
However, the Reno 10x still uses the FullHD + screen. The elements of color, brightness are still very good and do not affect the experience of normal but clear use, the higher resolution equipment will help the smaller parts become smoother, thereby promising a much more complete experience.
Configuring the Snapdragon 855 with 8GB of RAM is something we don't need to say much in this segment. It is enough to weigh even games that require the highest configuration today on mobile as well as heavy tasks. The remaining problem will probably be due to the support of software in resource allocation, battery management. The 1065mAh battery of the Reno 10x is enough for me for a full day of working with web, Facebook, messaging, call receiving, light gaming and Youtube playback. For you who use higher levels, play more games, I don't worry about charging VOOC 3.0.
Another notable point about internal hardware is the appearance of Haptic Feedback. There are still quite a few firms equipped for their Android phones, although if it has it, the most obvious and excellent experience is the more typing, much more sensible, no drier and no more. soul like on ordinary screens.
The last point is about the ColorOS 6.0 interface developed based on Android 9. While recently, Google recently resolved the gestures on Android Q before, Android phone companies are always looking to bring gestures on their machines and not every company does it well. The operations on Reno 10X are now pretty much accessible to Android Q and iOS, we still have the convenience of simple manipulation to swipe up from the bottom to exit, swipe the hips to back, … The transfer operation between applications even though it is still not as straightforward and easy as Android Q's, it is still acceptable and not too much to support the common experience of users.
… something more fun to be happy every day instead of other machines that capital "whichever is the same …
With everything the OPPO has done with 10x Reno, design can be said to be one of the most beautiful Androids of the year, both in terms of perfection, creativity in an interesting shark fin solution, in terms of shooting ability. photos of 3 camera sets from home to moon, this is really a machine that makes me feel satisfied when placing on the scale table with many other machines.
Although there are still some unfortunate points in terms of potentially dirty buttons and fins, … but this is clearly a remarkable machine for those brothers who are looking for a new wind, one something more fun to enjoy every day instead of other machines that "are all like machines." Of course, that is when those elements are big enough for you yourself, those who will spend 21 million to buy a machine or make up for x million after you sold the machine you're using at the price of millions.
