Digital Camera World Verdict

Starting at £399 in the UK, it’s a doozy to recommend the Reno 2, with its stunning looking all-screen design, stacks of storage options and a great camera for the price. It isn’t perfect - the midrange processor won’t suit power users, but as a package and a camera phone, Oppo’s hit a sensational price-to-performance ratio here.

Phones like the Oppo Reno 2, combining flagship designs and midrange internals to keep costs down are popping up everywhere. The Xiaomi Mi Note 10, for example, features the world’s first 108MP smartphone camera sensor, despite the middling chipset powering it along.

The new Oppo Reno 2 also combines a flagship design and no less than four cameras around the back with the same midrange Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G as found in the Mi Note 10. While this means its gaming capabilities won’t stack up to those of the OnePlus 7T or Realme X2 Pro, both packing top-tier Snapdragon 855 Plus, it offers more elsewhere, for less.
