OnePlus recently launched its 10R 5G in India. The new phone is the successor to the the OnePlus 9R (Review) and is priced just below this year's OnePlus 9RT (Review). However, it looks very different from anything the Chinese smartphone maker has designed so far. On one hand, it does look unique, and newcomers to the OnePlus brand might find it attractive, but on the other hand existing OnePlus customers might be a little disappointed. The 10R 5G has some interesting hardware that OnePlus has put together, and this is especially true for the 150W Endurance Edition of the phone that I received. So are OnePlus' new design approach and hardware choices good enough to warrant that Rs. 43,999 sticker price in India?
The OnePlus 10R 5G (150W) is the successor to the OnePlus 9RT. The phone’s frame and rear panel are made from polycarbonate and features a matte finish which does not feel premium even though it is good at rejecting fingerprints.
Its AMOLED display packs HDR10+ capability, showcases deep blacks, and gets quite bright. It also features a 120Hz refresh rate and a 720Hz maximum touch sampling rate which is useful for gamers.
The phone has MediaTek’s Dimensity 8100-Max processor which is a customised version of the regular Dimensity 8100. The customisations according to OnePlus are said to improve gaming and AI performance along with low-light video.
The primary camera's performance is good in daylight, but the ultra-wide-angle and macro cameras are quite average. Battery life is solid and the 150W charging system, a highlight of this phone, works as expected.
