design and performance

Sporting an unusual aesthetic, quite different from most of the smartphones OnePlus has offered us, the 10R comes with a bold picture. One can also describe the construction as similar to that of a marble slab, with curved edges and rough dimensions, in contrast to the 9 Series, which had a flatter aspect.

The phone still stands out with its clean and minimalistic approach with a dot-matrix rear finish to prevent fingerprints on the phone. The OnePlus 10R offers two variants to give a contrasting aesthetic to the crowd: Sierra Black and Forest Green. The flat sides are dedicated to improving stability and grip while holding the phone vertically, a bonus for mobile gamers and streaming sessions.

With overloaded features in the phone, the device needs to be prepared to be bigger and heavier in comparison. The OnePlus 10R has a larger display size of 6.7 inches, which makes for a slightly larger ratio than the OnePlus 9, which has a display size of 6.5. A Full HD+ AMOLED display delivers sharp and vibrant imagery. The display comes with a 120Hz refresh rate that varies between 60Hz, 90Hz and 120Hz depending on the phone’s power consumption and battery life. There has been no change in the technology used in the display in both the series of OnePlus.


The most attractive feature added for the phone falling in the budget-friendly category is the SuperWook endurance technology which ensures flash fast-charging system. This enables your phone to charge from 1-30% within just 3 minutes. Such a feature really eliminates the hassle of running late or forgetting to charge your phone.

The Endurance Edition packs either a 4500mAh battery or a 5000mAh battery, depending on whether your OnePlus 10R supports 150W SUPERVOOC or 80W SUPERVOOC. Both deliver similar performance and promise to charge your phone to 100% within 30 minutes. The given mAh battery is potentially the longest lasting one in the market, making this phone very suitable for users with 9-5 work-life.

Again, comparing this new variant to its predecessor OnePlus 9 series, apart from the upgrade of the SUPERVOOC fast-charging technology from 65W to 80W/150W, no significant changes have been made to the battery. This is a major improvement so far in their new smartphone range.

The smartphone comes with additional features to extend the life of the battery, namely the smart battery health algorithm and battery healing technology that prevents electrode damage due to continuous charging of your phone.


OnePlus 10R comes with an optimized MediaTex Dimensity 8100 Max chip that gives an astonishing 11% boost to CPU and 20% improvement in GPU performance, making it suitable for gaming and heavy workloads. The chip houses an 8-core system and a dedicated AI processor, which boosts power efficiency by up to 25% to give your smartphone an immersive experience.

Compared to its counterpart, the OnePlus 9 series, which featured a Snapdragon 850 processor, the 10R is undoubtedly better in terms of performance and durability. The Dimension 8100 easily beats the Snapdragon by being 50% more efficient and smoother in performance and power delivery.

With the latest and most powerful 3D cooling system, OnePlus 10R offers more than 35,000 mm2 of cooling area, which helps prevent your chipset from overheating, thus, keeping your phone safe and extending its shelf life .

One notable feature and a big step forward for this model is the HyperBoost gaming engine and GPA frame stabilizer, which prevents frame rate drops during harsh gaming sessions.

In terms of storage and RAM, the phone offers two variants of 8GB and 12GB RAM and storage space between 128GB and 256GB, allowing consumers to choose the one best suited for their needs.


Unlike the OnePlus 9 series, which had a 48MP quad-camera system, the OnePlus 10R has a 50MP triple camera setup aligned at the back. In comparison, the 10R has an advanced camera in terms of pixels and IMX766 sensor that achieves crystal clear and HD capture.

Optical image stabilization remains unchanged in the latest models, allowing you to capture non-blurry photos and eliminate shaky results. Even though the phone has a great primary camera, it lacks wide-angle and macro cameras when placed next to the 9 series. The megapixels for the macro camera dropped from 16MP to 8MP and from 5MP to 2MP. Regardless, this is compensated for by the improved Nightscape algorithm, which promises to deliver sharp and clear images in low-light areas.

Along with these features comes the Image Clarity Engine, which reduces the time between clicking and processing an image. The 16MP front camera with Image Stabilizer gives you a great selfie session with minimal noise and blurring.

final call

If you’re looking for a crazy upgrade to your OnePlus phone or any Android in general, the OnePlus 10R exceeds our expectations with its outstanding features. By paying a few more bucks to your budget, you won’t be disappointed with this latest phone from OnePlus.

The 10R is a humble game-changer in the fast-charging competition and has a long-lasting battery life. The phone is packed with every feature like a powerful processor, a great cooling system, quick charge, great camera quality, durable construction and all day long.
