OPPO has recently added another device to its Reno brand, the Reno8 T. The device is currently available for pre-order but will be available for purchase as from 1st March 2022. We received a review unit from OPPO and we are going to dive into it briefly to see what OPPO offers with this phone. The review unit is a 5G phone but a 4G version is also available.
Once you purchase the phone, you get a transparent TPU case, a 67W fast charger, a Type-C cable charger and a sim-ejector tool. Here we will look at its camera, performance, and battery life.
If there’s one thing that OPPO phones have been famous for is their cameras. It is no different for the Reno8 T device, which has the best portrait camera yet, among other android midrangers. This phone has a triple camera setup on the rear with a 108MP main, 2MP depth, and another 2MP macro. The system tops out video recording at 1080p@30fps.
The phone also boasts a 32MP selfie camera that also caps video recording at 1080p 30fps.
On this phone, you get a great performance in photography and videography with good lighting. In a case of a low-light scenario, I experienced fairly good image processing. Shots and videos come out with pretty good contrast, sharpness, and colour with impressive dynamic range.
What stood out for me with this phone is the portrait camera. The quality is unmatched.
This device has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 5G (6nm) processor paired with Adreno 619 GPU. It is also run by an Android 13 and ColorOS 13 and comes with 8GB of RAM and a 256GB UFS 2.2 Storage. There’s an option to expand your RAM with up to 8GB Virtual RAM.
All these features make the performance of the Reno 8T smooth. You can efficiently multi-task with the phone and it is also seamless when switching between apps. In my experience with the phone I haven’t had a seamless experience when navigating through the phone.
I have also experienced no lag with the phone when gaming.
Battery and Charging
The OPPO Reno8 T packs a 4800mAh battery, which made me wonder how they managed to make the device so light. It charges up using a 67W fast charge that I have tested and found that it charges from 0% to 100% in just 45 minutes, without any interruptions.
The battery performance depends on you usage. With my average usage I got upto 10 hours of use before I recharge again in the evening. When using this phone, I never had to charge it during the day as once it is full in the morning, I had all the charge I needed for the day.
OPPO included 5-layer charging protection and Battery Health Engine to ensure long battery life and safe fast charging.
