Excellent performance and super-fast smartphone with 8gb ram
The phone color is so beautiful it looks similar to one plus phone. I work as a uber driver I continuously use Bluetooth, Internet, GPS never went wrong with this phone. In this price range, you can't get any phone with 8gb ram. The camera has awesome colors. Good battery life of 4000Mah with fast charger i'm getting 7-8 hours using GPD, Bluetooth, and internet.

Add a contact to the homepage? Can't be done!
Bought this phone after reading the great reviews. Tried to put my wife's phone as a contact on the homepage... shock horror, it can't be done. I contacted OPPO, and an embarrassed guy told me to install whatsapp to use a third party app to get around the inability to add contact to the homepage. I could do this on my 2015 Galaxy S5, but not on a 2020 'smartphone'? come on OPPO, try to join us in the 21st Century.

I like everything on this phone, The colour is beautiful and has so many positives. The camera is great too. It does everything as good as the Samsung's it just is set out different.

Poor user interface and customisation on some basic features
Bought my phone in Oct 2019. I've had a month playing around with it, trying to customise certain basic settings and finding it very unintuitive or not being able to customise it at all.
Thankfully their customer support is helpful, but still it's a poor experience and wouldn't recommend buying this phone, especially since I've had to reset the phone a couple of times to get the basic settings right. The running list of issues I encountered are:
1. I want to enlarge the font size of the battery percentage on the top right corner of phone. Not...able to do so and so it's hard to tell. 2. I've disabled most of my notification settings on my oppo Reno z, yet I keep getting the sound and vibration very regularly, a few minutes apart from each other, but nothing is showing in the notification window, nor are my applications having any notices coming in. Super annoying especially when I'm trying to sleep at night. Customer support advised me to reset my system settings, so wasted more time in trying to customise the apps again but it worked this time. 3. I found the default alarm clock to be very soft in volume. Instead of having the alarm volume being easily accessible in the alarm clock app (which is also where you select your alarm tone), I had to do a runaround by going to settings > sound and vibration > change alarm volume. Really??? It made me nervous in relying on the default alarm and have since downloaded other alarm apps as backups too, as they are more user friendly in setting up.

Best phone on the market for under $500
Camera quality is outstanding even at night
Durable and sturdy phone have had for 6 months with slowing down processing or running apps. Also the gradient colour on the back is mesmerising

Oppo is an absolute garbage and the worst service, if can be called service, out of all the phone companies
It's brand new, with factory settings. Continuously the screen freezes up. My old 5 year old LG battery was lasting longer. The worst thing for me was I have found out it wasn't saving new contacts in account sync, because when I checked my Google account for Oppo, the new contacts wasn't there. I went online chat to Oppo in order to fix the problem. First, someone came on, I explained the issue in detail and the person disappeared. After I explained again. The person disappeared then came back saying sorry because had problem with computer. AT...that point I started copying what I was writing because they kept asking what was the problem with my phone and I wasn't pasting the problem. I told them I had Android phone, used the same Google account but never had problem with contacts sync to Google account. After wasting 1 hour online with Oppo help center chat, their solution was that "to sync contacts I need to have a Google account" I sent an email telling everything in detail about the contacts sync problem I was having, the email response was the same as the Oppo chat " I need to have a Google account to sync the new contacts" I think these people in China and don't understand English fully. Or there is AI type thing, the machine response. I spent altogether about 70 hours to fix the problem on brand new phone. The screen is still freezing though, and always battery is down. I am saving for a new Iphone. It's expensive but at least working and anything would be better than this total garbage with he worst service.

Oppo Reno Z - the little things build up
The Colour OS needs a lot of work. Such as;
- when choosing to 'Select' your contacts the ONLY option given is to 'Batch' Delete.
- can't 'link' contacts
- no ability to choose where contacts are saved. ie: phone, google or sim card.
- unclear what the OS is programmed to do when merging contacts.
SMS & MMS:
- can't 'lock' msgs to ensure you dont accidentally delete them
- doesn't let you move msgs from 'blocked' list....

Great phone for it's price
Just but a Reno 2z one week ago. Perfect . Great. I had iPhone X's max bought it 2100 dollars. Got the screen broken and had to change phone. So I was an iPhone fan. If any one said bad about iPhone I went crazy . I bought a 599 dollars Reno 2 z and can't imagin how fast it is. Very smooth. Beautiful shape. awesome battery charging speed. Pop up front camera. For it's price it is a perfect phone. From now on, I am an Oppo fan and will 400-600 dollars oppo phones. It has many features . You can change keyboard type and color. You can split apps.... On top of the screen you can run YouTube and bottom screen you can run browser or anything. You can change navigation . You can swap right or left of the screen to go back. Easy to you . You can set assistance touch like iPhone even better than iPhone. Cheers

Gotta Recommend this Phone at this Price Point!
Have had this phone for four months and can highly recommend it. My Son bought one too and he is very happy with it. he recently lost it in a Mosh Pit Death Circle and when he found it completely buried in the mud (he rang it) it was pretty well undamaged! First of all it looks good and has a nice bright screen that is very responsive. It charges fast with the quick charger supplied (I gather this fast charger is an optional extra with even far more expensive phones). Battery life is reasonable but with a quick top up you will have plenty of ba...ttery power again before you know it. The Oppo operating system is based on Android Nine and it operates very smoothly. The phone has very good storage capacity and the camera works very well. We both paid around $420 delivered so if you can get it for that price it makes you really wonder why people bother paying 1 to $2k for a top of the line phone!

I purchased 2 phones for my wife and I and so far we are very happy with them. Easy to use, simple app operation, great storage capacity. The camera is pretty good, not as good as a top of the line phone of course but for the price we found the phone to have almost everything we needed. It also has NFC.

Questions & Answers
Good morning how does this phone compare to the S9? Does it take a Nano Sim? thank you
I didn’t have to get a special sim. It takes the regular standard sim. It also will take a second sim, which is ideal when travelling. I don’t know anything about the S9.
I have an S9 currently and am planning to get a Reno Z. S9 is a good phone, has waterproof, wireless charging and stunning screen. However, Reno Z has larger storage space (8GB/128GB), bigger screen and battery. And yes, it takes dual nano sim cards
Hey I have recently installed a new software update at the beginning of August 2020. Unfortunately the phone doesn't seem to pick up the correct time zone for my location. Is this a common issue and how can I get back to the previous version of the software? Thanks
Hi, I had this Oppo Reno Z for 10 months. It worked well except a few freezing here and there . After update to colorOS 7, it keeps on lagging like hell and can't change ringtone to ringtone from Files... Have contacted Oppo but they asked to go Factory reset. Not keen to do it. Any other solution please?
