High refresh rate panels are basically the bread and butter for smartphones these days and for any device that wants to provide a great gaming experience, a 120Hz screen is a must. With today’s highlight going to the OPPO Reno8 Pro 5G, we are here to talk about some of the games that you can enjoy with the smartphone’s decent performance.
Just a quick fact of the day, the OPPO Reno8 Pro 5G is actually called the Reno8 Pro Plus with the particular specs being the highest out of all variants.
In order to get a good gaming experience, visual-based feedback is the most important aspect and it can branch towards several detailed categories as well but generally, the refresh rate and touch sampling rate are the ones that affect gameplay the most. With the Reno8 Pro’s 120Hz Refresh Rate + 360Hz Touch Sampling Rate combo, you can get smooth and silky animations without choppy frames plus a highly responsive input to your favorite titles displayed on the large 6.7-inch AMOLED screen.
As a matter of fact, the “Chicken Dinner” multiplayer shooter PUBG Mobile’s Super 90Hz mode can finally be enabled within a Reno class device with, of course, the Reno8 Pro leading the head charge here to benefit future releases within the same family too!
Aside from that, there’s a special trick up the sleeves dedicated to PUBG Mobile and League of Legends: Wild Rift and that is cranking the Touch Sampling Rate to 1000Hz to ensure gamers can input commands faster than the opponent for a competitive advantage. Additionally, the X-Axis Linear Motor enhances the vibration and feedback of the device when games are played in horizontal mode.
While the more popular PUBG Mobile and League of Legends: Wild Rift are within the middle ground at 90Hz, that’s not the case for Brawl Stars though as it can take full advantage of the 120Hz screen to be played at the given frame rate which hops between the stable range of 116 to 119.
For a game like Brawl Stars that needs to dodge and attack consistently, the high FPS resulting in quick response against hazards really did provide a competitive headroom here.
To produce a high number of frames, you’ll need a powerful chipset within your smartphone to achieve. While previous offerings from Qualcomm include the notorious Snapdragon 888 that produces heat hot enough to scorch one’s fingers to an uncomfortable degree during gaming, the one within the Reno8 Pro – the Dimensity 8100-MAX – essentially capped that problem to an acceptable range.
The premium SoC from MediaTek is the same as the standard Dimensity 8100 but binned to allow higher frequency towards the CPU and GPU cores. Although on paper, the Snapdragon 888 beats it the Dimensity 8100-MAX still comes out ahead thanks to better reception within the mobile gaming community.
In PUBG Mobile, the temperature stays at a comfortable 32°C across most of the round with both the back and screen maintaining just a mild warm which is tolerable for bare fingers.
Even when playing superior taxing games like Genshin Impact it just spikes into about 40°C and even if the Pro Gamer Mode is toggled on to unlock the thermal limit. And it is also barely warm to the touch. Honestly speaking, I think there is still some thermal headroom if OPPO wants to push the performance further. This is much better than the literal toaster chip of the Snapdragon 888 that roasts the player’s hands.
Taking a small break every once in a while during gaming is healthy but most people would choose or be forced to do it because their battery is about to run out. Thankfully, the Reno8 Pro is equipped with 4500mAh battery capacity while staying relatively slim on top of the signature 80W SUPERVOOC fast charge technology that quickly juices up the device to 50% in 11 minutes and to full within 28 minutes.
The Safe Fast Charge System certified by Tüv Rheinland adds another layer of protection and safety guarantee for fellow users as well so that you don’t have to worry about dangerous accidents like overheating or swollen batteries that ultimately lead to explosions.
In short, the OPPO Reno8 Pro 5G provides a superior gaming experience that is capable of running most titles with smooth and silky animation together with ultra-responsive inputs to make sure that you’re always coming out ahead in multiplayer games all the while enjoying all the eye candies you deserve via the exquisite and large AMOLED display showing off vivid and accurate colors that makes your games pop out even more.
