Oppo Reno 10x Zoom has a 4065 mAh battery, which can keep the phone alive without any problems for a whole day, sometimes a day and a half. With a tiny bit of help from our side, we can achieve two days, and if we will try to be more power-saving – even three. My record was over 4 days of usage, but only when Reno functioned as a secondary smartphone, I limited its usage to a few short calls and taking several photos.
We can be pleased with the battery, when we will compare the lifespan to the phone’s capabilities. It is worth noting that in the set we have a quick (but not the quickest one in the Oppo portfolio) VooC charger – that can charge the battery to half in less than half an hour. After that it charges a bit slower, it will hit 100% in an hour and a half. And even though there are phones that can charge even faster – we cannot complain about Reno 10x Zoom.
While testing the previous Reno, I complained that filtering the sound through the receiver is not the best and our interlocutor was heard all around us – though the phone was next to our ear. In the 10x Zoom model I did not notice this effect, but the sound remained great.
We can hear everything loud and clear, there are no problems with maintaining the coverage and searching for it in “troublesome” locations - Reno 10x Zoom does not give way to other flagships. There are two “external” speakers, that are supposed to provide a stereophonic effect, but it does not work well, because the “lower” one plays much louder than the receiver, and in addition – it generates more lower tones. Still – together they play loud and clear and the phone is fully “useable” in the loud speaking mode.
When it comes to communication interfaces, this phone has them all (including NFC) and they all work without any problems. It is worth remembering that the phone can use dual SIM, it has a comfortable dialler with the option of blocking numbers and it has a hotspot mode in two channels, 2.4 and 5 GHz. In addition – the USB socket supports the OTG mode. Earphones added to the set have a high quality – for an added ones – and they will please most users. Those more demanding ones need to remember about the lack of a minijack socket.
