Weekly poll results: Oppo Reno8 Pro+ stands out from the other two
The Oppo Reno8 trio is made of mostly the same material, but the three models received surprisingly different results in last week’s poll – one did pretty well, the other was not liked. and the other was somewhere in between.
Of the three, the Oppo Reno8 Pro+ was most people’s favorite. This Dimensity 8100-Max is a big draw and the 120Hz 10-bit AMOLED display promises excellent image quality. But as one reviewer said, chipset and display aren’t everything.
Despite having the custom MariSilicon X ISP on board, people weren’t impressed with the camera setup. The 50 MP main camera lacks OIS, the 8 MP ultra-wide module has too low a resolution, and there’s no telephoto lens.

The Oppo Reno8 Pro has exactly the same camera hardware (MariSilicon included), but wasn’t as popular – why? People aren’t sold on the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1. It’s the first phone with Qualcomm’s new mid-range chip, so if the chip can prove the naysayers wrong, the Pro phone could gain traction. .
Then there’s the vanilla Oppo Reno8, which has hardly any dots on the board. The advantages over the Dimensity 1300 over the older 1200 are unclear and Oppo has really skimped on hardware features here – even the basic 8MP ultrawide camera is missing. Looking at the pricing, the vanilla model faces stiff competition from competing brands (including cousins Realme and OnePlus).
As for the previous generation Reno7, it fell out of favor, which is good news for Oppo. These twice-a-year upgrade cycles sometimes lead to the predicament of the older model being more desirable. This is not the case with the Reno7 and 8 series.
Even so, the new trio have a lot to prove – as the poll shows, most voters weren’t convinced this series had the right phone for them.
Oppo Reno8 Pro+ and Reno8 open sales started in China earlier this week, Reno8 Pro will be available from next Saturday. Oppo has yet to announce an international release, but we are keeping an ear out.
