Oppo Reno 5 Pro camera review: essential improvement – Phandroid
Over the past few years, Oppo has focused most of its efforts on its Find X lineup to ensure its flagship smartphones provide the best possible photography experience. Oppo might be a bit behind the competition on this front, but they’re still among the best.
By comparison, the Oppo Reno devices have been overlooked, getting the usual “let’s just add more cheap cameras to the back of the phone” that we’ve seen other manufacturers do for their mid-range devices with little effort to provide better photo for those who pay for phones. On paper, that’s where the Oppo Reno 5 Pro sits, sporting a 64MP main camera, 2MP macro camera, 2MP depth sensors and an 8MP ultrawide camera at the back. They even add a 32MP sensor for the selfie camera.
While the average consumer may be drawn to all these numbers, the results are the only thing that really matters. To put the Oppo Reno 5 Pro through its paces, we captured over 100 photos and videos with the device in a variety of different lighting conditions. We haven’t been too impressed with Oppo’s Reno smartphones in the past, but this time around it looks like the camera engineers have put more effort into improving the images delivered by this phone. .
The Reno 5 Pro does well in shots when lighting conditions are good, but it also performs admirably in less than ideal lighting. Dynamic range has improved dramatically, reducing the number of times highlights are completely blown out, which was quite noticeable last time around.
Take a look at the Oppo Reno 5 Pro camera test video and gallery below to see how the phone’s cameras work.
