In Oppo Reno 10x Zoom - as I have mentioned before – there is no notch. And this is great, because thanks to this the display is attractive. It has a narrow bezel (even at the bottom) and it is made in the AMOLED technology, which ensures great brightness, contrast, colour representation and a perfect black. I have no concerns towards the 6.6-inch matrix with a pixel density of over 380 ppi. The display is bright and we can use it in sunny days,, the touch panel works perfectly, the glass is resistant to scratches and dirt, there is Always-On-display and colours simply please our eyes.
The minimum brightness level could have been a bit lower (especially that the interface does not have a dark mode), but it is not the worse, because we can limit the screen flickering and turn on the night mode, with warmer colours. We can control the intensity of this filter and set the schedule of automatic activation. In addition we can modify the colours temperature and change their palette – P3 or sRGB. I definitely prefer the vivid P3…
The fingerprint scanner is hidden under the display. It is active and has nice animations – but I still prefer the classic touch fields. The one in Reno, for a display one, is decent – but it looks like that I have incompatible fingers, because the number of errors is – in my opinion – still unsatisfactory – especially when we will take traditional scanners into consideration.
Despite adding each finger twice, on many ways – I still did not manage to overcome 6-7 successful tries out of 10. It is better than in Samsung Galaxy A50 or Xiaomi Mi8 Pro, but I still do not consider this solution as a perfect one. Facial recognition works much better. Even though we need to pull out the “fin” with the front camera, which is not the fastest one – I enjoyed it much more than the screen sensor.
The facial recognition system (though it is based only on the 2D image) cannot be deceived by the “sleeping person” method, we need to have at least one eye open or remove sunglasses. Regular ones are no problems for the system, just like a slight facial hair. I tried to deceive it with a photo – and I did not manage to do so, however you need to remember that in the case of such systems there is a small risk. In the dark – it works nice, because we can light our face with the display.
