OPPO Reno 3 Review

Because of the Covid-19 brawl in the country, many product launches were pushed back and this includes the successor of OPPO Reno 2, the OPPO Reno 3.

But unlike the successor, the OReno 3 took a different route to implement the front camera. No more “motorized” front camera. It was replaced by a “waterdrop” style 44MP f/2.4 front camera with a wide-angle lens.

Final thoughts

I can categorize this smartphone as a “generally good” phone in this category. It is also priced well knowing that you’ll get premium features such as the 30W VOOC Flash Charge 4.0. The 8GB + 128GB combo is quite a good offering already plus you can expand the storage via the dedicated microSD card slot.

If the SRP of the OPPO Reno 3 is a little bit out of your budget, you can explore getting on Smart Signature postpaid plan.
