Another mid-range phone rolls into town offering an appealing balance between price and performance. Oppo gets a lot right with the Reno 2, but in a section of the market that's increasingly crowded, it perhaps doesn't do enough to be really compelling for buyers.

- David Nield, T3
SlashGear

If the OPPO Reno 2 (or OPPO Reno2 if you prefer) weren’t hampered by an off-putting amount of bloatware, it’d be really great. It’s a beautiful piece of hardware that’s not really failed to perform the vast majority of the time we’ve had to test.

Expert Reviews

The Reno 2 is perfectly competent phone and a longer-lasting, faster alternative to the Google Pixel 3A XL, with a more flexible camera setup, but you can't ignore the brilliant Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro.

- Jonathan Bray, Expert Reviews
Pocket-lint

A premium looking device with a very capable camera system, long battery life and a great display, the Reno 2 is a success. But by flooding the market, and with the latest Realme X2 Pro phone having been announced, Oppo isn't always helping itself.

- Cam Bunton, Pocket-lint

The device comes with really nice quirks like the shark pop-up camera and the Sound Focus feature, which make it a really interesting proposition at the price. However this will face stiff competition from devices like the OnePlus 7T, Asus ROG Phone 2 and others, which are good smartphones and pack better specifications in some cases. Oppo Reno 2 is a decent smartphone, but the competition is quite stiff in this price range.

An absolute steal

At £449 SIM-free, the Oppo Reno2 an absolute steal considering the tech you're getting for the money. All we can say is: watch out Huawei.

Style, power, and crammed with features

The Reno 2 is an eye-catching, luxurious-feeling handset that ticks all the boxes you’re likely to need in a smartphone. It packs camera capabilities for almost any situation, including a standout pop up selfie cam, and it doesn’t compromise on power and performance either, despite it’s not-quite- flagship innards.

If you already have any other Oppo smartphone, it's probaby not worth splashing out on the Reno 2. For everyone else, it looks like a good option if you want an Android phone with good cameras, excellent performance and long battery. You may be among those who still do not trust the resilience of motorised cameras. Although we understand your doubts, the wing-shaped design of the Reno 2 seems good and also allows you to have a beautiful screen without notches.
