OnePlus 10R is a recent addition to the highly competitive premium smartphone segment, and it’s a strong entry. The three strongest aspects of this phone are its performance, charging time, and an almost completely bloat-free experience. However, the phone’s camera performance doesn’t meet expectations. Speaking of cameras, the phone has a 50 MP wide-angle camera with PDAF and OIS, 8 MP ultrawide, and a 2 MP macro sensor camera on the rear. The 16 MP selfie camera certainly surprises, though. Apart from the usual camera features, the phone has a Dual-LED dual-tone flash and gyro-EIS.
The rear camera setup can record videos up to 4K, while the selfie camera is limited to 1080p video recording. The phone’s overall performance is expectedly superb thanks to the MediaTek Dimensity 8100-Max processor. Gaming performance delivered by the Mali-G610 MC6 GPU is also similar. OnePlus 10R runs the latest Android 12 with OxygenOS 12.1 on top. As previously mentioned, the device barely has any bloatware, which is one of its biggest advantages. It has a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protected glass front with a plastic back and frame. While the plastic back does a good job resisting fingerprints, OnePlus should have provided a glass back at this price.
Also, the plastic used here doesn’t feel like it’s of high quality. For colors, the options are Sierra Black and Forest Green. On the bright side of things, OnePlus 10R is lightweight at 186 grams. As for the dimensions, it measures 6.43 by 2.97 by 0.32 inches. Its display quality is very good. The phone has a 6.7 inches FHD+ Fluid AMOLED screen with support for HDR10+ and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Furthermore, the phone’s screen-to-body ratio and PPI density are 87.6% and 394 respectively. In the sound department, the device not only has stereo speakers but also high-resolution audio. A 3.5 mm headphone jack is absent on this phone, but in this segment, it wasn’t expected either way.
As far as charging and battery time are concerned, the phone has two variants. The regular version has a 5000 Li-Po non-removable battery that supports 80W fast charging. As per the ads, the regular version can go from 1 to 100% of charge in 32 minutes. Similarly, the 150W version, which has a 4500 mAh Li-Po non-removable battery, can do the same thing in just 17 minutes. On average age, OnePlus 10R delivers an all-day battery life, at the very least, which is decent. In terms of charging time, the device is truly exceptional.
The phone also comes in three RAM/ROM combinations which are 8 GB/ 128 GB, 8 GB/ 256 GB, and 12 GB/ 256 GB. It doesn’t support an SD card, which isn’t a surprise, once again. What it can support are two Nano-SIM cards and connections up to 5G. Connectivity options include dual-band Wi-Fi, Hotspot, Bluetooth 5.2, GPS, NFC, and USB Type-C 2.0. The device also has all the usual sensors. OnePlus 10R comes in at a starting price of ₹38,999 which approximately converts to $506.
