The first ever phone that was worst than the previous one!
Firstly, it really wants to be an iPhone, with it's ColorOS system, which I found to be extremely annoying. Then there's the ringer which keeps going to silent because you pick the phone and gently press the volume up and camera buttons simultaneously. The accessibility settings which keep changing for no reason? I would not accept a gift of an oppo phone!
Purchased in September 2019 at Officeworks for $490.00.
I had to replace the phone twice as the wifi kept on dropping off. Oppo refused to take ownership.
Wifi was intermittent so replaced phone twice at Campbelltown store
Oppo advised to send phone in for repair which is not practical as I would be without a phone for applied 2 week's.
The purchase was no more than a month old.
Purchased in December 2020 for $500.00.
7\10 being nice!!
beautiful vibrant shell that is instantly hidden by the dark coloured rubber protective cover provided with your phone. Hiding a big part of why I purchased the phone to begin with. It has a Few screen glitch's that often occur randomly, in the notification bar, e.G: over lapping of notifications making it impossible to read time at top or it shows icons as open when really shut, things like nfc, and headphones, ect...Great storage, easy to use generally speaking! Had a fantastic camera, for a short while, now takes a miserable one. My phone is about 4 months old never dropped or damaged but has more then it's share of faults.
Purchased in March 2020 at The Good Guys for $399.00.

Only had phone for a few months and keeps freezing up on home screen..like 3 x before an app will open. Tried reboot but does not fix it. Very annoying.

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.

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.

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.

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?
