OPPO Reno8 Z 5G

The Reno8 Z 5G model is basically an updated version of the Reno7 Z 5G, sharing almost all of the latter's features and specs. It's a camera-centric smartphone, so we've included some sample shots alongside our initial thoughts and unboxing.

Inside the box comes the Reno8 Z 5G smartphone, USB-C cable, 33W fast charger, transparent case, SIM injector tool, paper documentation including the warranty, and quick guide, unfortunately, wired headphones are not included.

Build Quality and Design
The Starlight Black Reno8 Z we have is very similar in terms of design to its predecessor. With its glittery effects, the plastic back cover portrays a night sky filled with stars.

The matte exterior makes it harder to leave fingerprints. If you like a lighter-themed version but want the same shimmering effects, check out the Dawnlight Gold variant.

The camera island is also larger and goes beyond the boundaries of the frame, which is another noticeable difference. A darker black and higher gloss level set it apart from the Reno7 Z 5G. It still has a Blue LED light around the camera rings, indicating its charging which is a really cool feature.

It's equipped with a 64-megapixel f/1.7 main camera, a 2MP f/2.4 macro camera, a 2MP f/2.4 depth camera, with LED flash, and a 16-megapixel f/2.4 front-facing camera.

The Reno8 z 5G is only 7.66 mm thin, weighs 181g, and is encased in a metal frame. The device is well-balanced and light, giving the impression that it is of high quality and durability.

The power button is found on the right of the phone, while the volume rocker and SIM card slot are placed on the left side.

There is a hole for the microphone at the top, while the speaker grill, a USB-C connector, a second microphone, and a 3.5mm audio port can be found at the bottom of the device.

Its 6.43-inch Rigid AMOLED display is identical to the one found in the Reno7 Z 5G with Full HD+ (2400 by 1080 resolution) at 60 fps, with a touch sampling rate of 180 fps, a maximum brightness of 600 nits, and an in-display fingerprint reader.

It's also worth pointing out that there is a notch on the upper left side of the screen, where the selfie camera is placed and some people find this more visually appealing. According to OPPO's specs, the screen is now protected by SCHOTT Xensation Up glass.

Sample Photos
The Reno8 Z 5G camera performs admirably in well-lit situations. Both indoors and outdoors, the colors and details of the phone captured pictures are impressive.

Likewise, the Night mode functioned well, bringing out the brightness of the image such that we could make out more details than in the standard setting. We will explore the Reno8 Z 5G's camera capabilities more in our full review.

The OPPO Reno 8 Z 5G's square form factor is comfy in the hand, its thin profile makes it easy to handle, and its camera is really up to the task of capturing stunning stills and smooth 4K video. It's also a powerful device thanks to its powerful Chipset, large storage, and RAM that all support expanded virtual RAM for lag-free and smooth performance.

First Impressions
The OPPO Reno 8 Z 5G is a well-constructed smartphone with an eye-candy design. However, except for a few enhancements, including a design, a new color option, and an update to the most recent version of Android OS, not much has changed. It seems to have the same design as the similarly priced Reno7 Z 5G, but the twin Orbit lighting and 64-megapixel AI portrait camera are interesting features. If you enjoy taking pictures with your smartphone, the Reno8 Z 5G is an excellent option.
