Initial Remarks 

The OPPO Reno 8 Pro 5G with its streamlined unibody design gives it an aesthetic appeal. The design and the unique body colour attract attention. The processor carries out any tasks thrown at it, but we will know more in the long run and in the final review of the phone. The MariSilicon X Imaging NPU promises to deliver detailed and sharp images, especially during the night, but we will have to wait for it. The battery is sufficient and so is the charger. Heating and battery drainage issues will be known as we experience the phone with regular use.
