In 2020's penultimate Fast Charge episode we're taking a look at the Oppo Reno 5 series - only launched today - along with Apple's oh-so-pricey AirPods Max, and rounding it out with our favourite tech of the year so far.

First up is the Reno 5. Only announced today, the Reno 5 and 5 Pro pack in 65W charging and 90Hz panels along with some rather snazzy finishes. The 5 Pro also eschews Snapdragon in favour of a MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ chipset - is this a turning point for high-end MediaTek phones?

Speaking of the high-end, Apple's first over-ear AirPods are here, and they cost more than some cars. The AirPods Max certainly look the part, but at £550/$550 are they destined to be anything more than a status symbol?

Finally, 2020 is drawing to a close. With that in mind, this week Dom, Toddy, Chris and Anyron are going to round up their favourite tech of the year so far - before next week we look forward to what's on the way in 2021.

You can watch it all in the video embedded up above, or head straight to YouTube to watch it there (and subscribe if you fancy!).
