Over the past few years, Oppo has focused most of its efforts on its Find X line to ensure that its flagship smartphones deliver the best possible photographic experience. Oppo might be a little behind the competition on this front, but they’re still some of the best.
In comparison, the Oppo Reno devices have been overlooked, getting the usual “let’s just add more inexpensive cameras to the back of the phone” that we’ve seen other manufacturers do for their mid-range devices with little. efforts to provide better photos for those who pay for phones. On paper, this is where the Oppo Reno 5 Pro sits, with a 64 MP main camera, 2 MP macro camera, 2 MP depth sensors and a 8 MP ultra-wide camera on the back. They even add a 32MP sensor for the selfie camera.
While the average consumer may be drawn to all of these numbers, the results are the only thing that really matters. To test the Oppo Reno 5 Pro, we capture over 100 photos and videos with the device in different lighting conditions. In the past, we weren’t too impressed with Oppo’s Reno smartphones, but this time around it looks like the camera engineers have put more effort into improving the images provided by this phone.
The Reno 5 Pro does good shots in good lighting conditions, but it also performs admirably in less than ideal lighting. Dynamic range has improved dramatically, reducing the number of times highlights are completely removed, which was pretty noticeable last time around.
