[TekIT ‘n Go] OPPO Reno3 Unboxing and First Impressions: We Love This One


OPPO is already selling the Reno3 in Kenya, and we have been playing the device for a couple of days now. The device is as good as past OPPO Reno series of phones, and brings some new features to the table. The rear camera system, for instance, is as versatile as they come with four sensors: a main snapper, ultrawide, monochrome, and telephoto lenses. The front camera is equally impressive with a 44 MP sensor. It is, however, hidden in a tear-drop notch that is slowly becoming stale in a world where punch-holes and motorized selfie snappers are preferred.

Before we get carried away by what the device packs, here are its box contents:

  1. The Reno3
  2. Literature, including warranty information
  3. Clear case
  4. SIM ejection tool
  5. Standard 3.5 mm earphones
  6. USB C cable with a 30W VOOC v3.0 charging brick
