OPPO Reno10 Pro+5G Battery Test | Pro-level Power

It just keeps on going.

You can’t deny that OPPO has been on quite a roll this quarter as it struck gold with the launch of its flagship-level beast, the OPPO Reno10 Pro+ 5G. Aside from its advanced specs, it’s easy to underrate this smartphone’s longevity and endurance. Its battery life is powerful enough to carry you through a busy workday with enough juice to spare for some much-needed R&R once you get home.

To show you just what we mean, allow us to appreciate the unsung hero of just about any gadget–its trusty battery. In the case of the OPPO Reno10 Pro+ 5G, we’re looking at an intriguing 4700 mAh beast that has a few tricks up its sleeve. Is it truly the powerhouse worthy of flagship-level popularity? Or are we charging headfirst into low-battery territory? Let’s find out.

Optimized for power

I think it’s best we address the elephant in the room. 4700 mAh doesn’t seem as big as one would expect–and trust me, I’ve been under the same level of scrutiny. In a sea of 5000 mAh or more, it’s easy to underestimate lesser digits. Thankfully, we have AccuBattery to break things down. The numbers in question were quite surprising.

It’s easy to forget that the Reno10 Pro+ 5G is powered by a flagship-level Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 Mobile platform and further streamlined by ColorOS 13’s powerful Dynamic Computing Engine. The result is optimization through the roof and a battery that doesn’t need to work on overdrive. Whether it’s gaming, binge-watching, or hardcore internet browsing, you’ll get a good amount of time from your device. In total, we’re looking at an estimated 21 hours of medium, everyday usage, 6 and a half hours of heavy, punishing usage, and almost four days of stand-by time. These are great numbers on paper, but are they as accurate as AccuBattery claims?

A test battery of battery tests

We decided to do a few simple tests of our own. Firstly, we made sure that everything was on their default settings–this means no tinkering with app permissions, no battery saving mode, just straight-up daily driving. This task involved a day’s worth of work from leaving the house at 2:00 PM until whatever hour I manage to get home. Mobile data would be switched on all throughout, as I need to keep track of social media and e-mails. The two-hour trip from home involved a bit of Spotify and Netflix and by the time I’d arrived at the work venue, I was sitting at 87%.

Taking videos and photos was a priority, and took up most of our time outside. The trip home saw me at about 50% at around 10:00 PM. Upon getting home by midnight, a little bit of Honkai Star Rail was in order, because working hard to play hard is how we should all live our lives. After an hour, the Reno10 Pro+ was finally getting warm and displaying its low-battery alerts. This is when I decided to hook it up to some good ol’ 100W SUPERVOOC fast charging. All-in-all, about 8 hours of medium to heavy usage while taking 5G mobile data being activated into consideration. Not bad!


Now, for part two. This time, we’d repeat the process in a similar manner while taking a few precautions. This includes 5G mobile data being on for the entire duration. This time, all apps would be deactivated from auto-launch with Power-saving Mode activated. The result was a couple more hours of usage, increasing our total to 1o hours of medium to heavy usage. Mobile data really eats up your battery quickly, no matter how you try and conserve energy.

On the daily, and while at home, I’d get closer to AccuBattery’s 21 hours of use if I only rely on Wi-Fi. Ever since we started using the OPPO Reno10 Pro+ 5G, reaching 0% battery had to be done on purpose.

Keeping things 100%

The OPPO Reno10 Pro+ 5G’s 100W SUPERVOOC fast charging is arguably the most reliable feature that the smartphone has. If you just so happen to drain your battery carelessly, it’s fine. You can get right back in the action in no time. In our daily charges, we’d go from 0 to 100% in 30 to 37 minutes, consistently. While it never dipped to the 20s (as it’s hoped, it never went beyond the 37 you can see above. This is way quicker than you think, so long as you’re not staring at the screen while you charge.

It’s worth noting that the phone’s SUPERVOOC S power management chipset integrates charging, discharging, decoding, reset, battery protection, and power outage functions into one single chip. In turn, you’re getting significantly increased discharge efficiency, allowing the phone to get more out of a single battery charge to keep you going for longer. The battery’s app interface is easy to navigate as well. You can customize just how stringent you want your power-saving mode to run. You can use the app’s “intelligent services” to optimize your charging habits.

Whether you rely on the info brought by AccuBattery, simply peruse through the in-phone battery app, or utilize both, you’ll be on top of any battery matters that you’ll encounter. Just like any smartphone, exercising care in using and charging your battery will guarantee a good degree of longevity. Speaking of longevity, OPPO’s Battery Health Engine (BHE) can keep your battery running at over 80% of its original capacity after as many as 1,600 charge cycles–which guarantees that your battery can potentially last twice as long as most industry-standard batteries in the wild, which is wild!

So, if you want to get your hands on the OPPO Reno10 Pro+ 5G,  the flagship-level smartphone is priced at Php39,999. You can score this phone and the rest of the OPPO Reno10 Series 5G at any OPPO authorized store nationwide, as well as official online channels, including Shopee, Lazada, and TikTok Shop.
