9. Oppo Reno 2 Z
Reasons to buy
Reasons to avoid
You have to hand it to Oppo – even when it comes to its budget and mid-range offerings, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer always manages to deliver premium features and a gorgeous design.
Both things are immediately apparent in regards to the Oppo Reno 2 Z, a phone that offers a stunning all-screen design (no notches or cutouts here), an impressive quad camera on its rear and a sturdy aluminium build.
Thanks to the practically non-existent bezels on its aforementioned screen, the Reno 2 Z provides a totally uninterrupted 6.53-inch FHD+ AMOLED display to view media on – perfect for watching movies and scrolling through pictures you've taken.
Speaking of photography, the Reno 2 Z offers a terrific quad camera array on its rear with most of the heavy lifting done by a mighty 48MP main camera, with an 8MP ultra-wide lens and 2MP monochrome and depth sensors to round out the package.
That all-screen design we mentioned earlier? That's only possible due to the inclusion of a very nifty front-facing pop-up camera, which'll only show itself when you choose to take a selfie.
Unlike the Oppo Find X's implementation, which saw the camera pop up to scan your face every time you unlocked your phone, the Reno 2 Z uses an under-display fingerprint scanner for security – this should relieve a lot of the burden placed on the device's pop-up motor in the long run.
Admittedly, we'd have liked a more powerful chipset and GPU in the Oppo Reno 2 Z, but given its premium features and design, the phone is still terrific value for money.
