Oppo Reno 5 series won’t be coming to Europe, company confirms

Oppo has unveiled the Reno 5 range of phones, but if you were hoping to be able to buy them and you live in Europe, it seems you’re out of luck.

In a statement to TechRadar the company said: “This is to confirm the Reno 5 won’t be coming to Europe.”

Presumably, that applies to the entire Reno 5 range (meaning the Oppo Reno 5, Oppo Reno 5 Pro, and Oppo Reno 5 Pro Plus), though the wording leaves that slightly ambiguous.

Only in China?
The only place that we know the Oppo Reno 5 range is set to land so far is China,

and with the company not typically bringing its phones to the US we can pretty much count a US launch out, though there’s still some hope for Australia.

While it’s a shame not to have the Oppo Reno 5 range available in Europe, it’s perhaps not a huge loss,

as these phones sound quite similar to the Oppo Reno 4 and Oppo Reno 4 Pro, both of which launched earlier in 2020 and are available in the UK.

And for those who want a higher-end Oppo phone, there’s always the Oppo Find X2 range, and the upcoming Oppo Find X3. So there’s no shortage of Oppo handsets that you can buy.

Tello Mobile Review: 5 Things To Know Before You Sign Up

If you’re looking for a great deal on a new phone plan, Tello Mobile is one to consider.

In this Tello review, I’ll take a close look at Tello’s plans and pricing, how to get started, and what to expect from Tello’s service.

I tested Tello Mobile for 30 days to try out the service myself. I’ve also compared more than 70 different available phone plans to see how Tello holds up.

This article was updated in May 2024 and I review it every 12 months. Detailed notes on all updates can be found here.

What To Know Before Signing Up for Tello Mobile
Tello Mobile is an affordable prepaid cell phone service provider that runs on T-Mobile’s network, also known as a T-Mobile MVNO.

Plans from Tello Mobile begin as low as $5 per month, but this plan doesn’t include any high-speed data. However, you can get 1GB of high-speed data plus unlimited talk and text for $9 per month, which has won Tello the title of the cheapest monthly cell phone plan on Clark.com.

I tested out Tello’s 1GB plan for 30 days to explore its coverage, call and text performance, customer service and more.

1. Plans and Pricing
Tello Mobile recently expanded its plan selection to include seven different high-speed data options. Each high-speed data option can be paired with no minutes, 100 minutes, 300 minutes, 500 minutes,

or unlimited minutes. All of Tello Mobile’s plans include unlimited texting and mobile hotspot capabilities.

Here are Tello’s plan options with unlimited minutes:

2. Activation Process
Purchasing a Tello Mobile phone plan and activating the service is very easy to do. I recently signed up myself to try out the service for a full month.

To get started, I visited Tello’s website and chose the Economy plan (at the time, the plan cost $10/month for 1GB of high-speed data; now it costs $9).

You’ll have to log in to continue. Creating an account is simple and includes entering your email address, a password and a decision on whether or not you want to “stay in touch to get Tello’s best deals” throughout your service.

Once I’d logged in, I was able to review my order.

3. Call and Text Performance
Over 30 days, I tried out Tello Mobile’s service by making and receiving phone calls as well as sending and receiving text messages.

While I didn’t travel a lot during the month that I was testing Tello, I had consistently good service with no dropped calls or undelivered text messages. Of course, this won’t be true for every area.

Tello Mobile runs on T-Mobile’s network and the map below indicates coverage in many areas of the United States.

4. Data Speeds
Tello Mobile offers access to T-Mobile’s 4G LTE/5G network. Based on my experience and T-Mobile’s coverage map, you’ll likely have consistent access to data with Tello Mobile.

To make sure you’ll have coverage before switching to Tello Mobile, be sure to enter your address on its coverage checker online. You can also look at T-Mobile’s coverage map to get a better idea of the service in your area since they run on the same towers.
