OnePlus 10R 5G - Don't Buy

Written by Rahul Makwana


OnePlus 10R 5G price in India starts from Rs 38,999 for 8GB RAM + 128GB  storage in India.

This is almost 40k smartphone and yet, the cameras doesn't feel like 40k, it feels like 30k smartphone cameras.


OnePlus needs to work on the ultra-wide lens as well as night photography to justify the Rs 38,999 price tag.

By the way, the cameras are not that bad but compared to other phone around 40k, OnePlus 10R 5G doesn't have the best cameras.

This is where, I feel, OnePlus has done great job, you will love 6.70-inches 10-bit 120Hz AMOLED display.


The OnePlus 10R 5G is powered by MediaTek Dimensity 8100 Max processor which is close to Snapdragon 888 chipset.


Also, the phone has 9 5G bands and there is nothing to worry about the performance.

The Phone runs on Oxygen OS 12.1-based on Android 12. Keep in mind, this is not OxygenOS we use to know.


this is ColorOS but OnePlus is calling it OxygenOS, just like how RealMe is calling their OS RealMe UI.

OnePlus is offering two different versions of the OnePlus 10R 5G,

Battery Life

If you want that super fast 150W fast charging then you have to buy a 12GB RAM + 256GB storage variant and it will cost you Rs 43,999 this version has a 4,500 mAh battery.

There is also an 80W version variant which will cost you Rs 38,999 for 8GB RAM + 128GB storage and this variant has a 5,000 mAh battery.

The OnePlus 10R 5G has a stereo speaker which works fine, no issues there. Its dual speakers, so can’t complain much.

Audio Quality

OnePlus 10R 5G is a re-brand of RealMe GT Neo 3 5G and you're getting the RealMe GT Neo 3 5G at Rs 36,999 while the OnePlus 10R 5G at Rs 38999


So it doesn't make any sense to buy the OnePlus 10R 5G over RealMe GT Neo 3 5G.

Some recommendations

– Xiaomi 11T Pro 5G – RealMe GT Neo 3 5G – RealMe GT 2 5G – IQOO 9 SE 5G
