best oppo models 2022

OPPO has been an underrated brand in India for quite some time now. It is cheap, reliable, and runs on the most popular smartphone operating system, Android. OPPO releases many new phones every year so it can be hard to choose the ones that are best for you. Today, we will be looking at the best OPPO models in India for 2022.

OPPO f19

OPPO f19 price is around ₹16000 if you buy it from Croma’s website. OPPO f19 specs are as follows:

  • Display size: 16.34 cm (6.43″), FHD Plus
  • 6GB RAM | 128GB ROM | Android 11
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon Octa Core 662 Processor
  • Rear Cameras 48MP + 2MP + 2MP | Front Camera 16MP
  • 5000 mAh Lithium-Ion Battery
  • Fingerprint Sensor | Gyroscope

The Octa Core 662 processor isn’t the fastest processor on the planet but offers great value for midrange devices. Combine this with 6 GB RAM, 128 GB ROM, 5000 mAh battery, and 6.4 inches Full HD display, you have a multimedia powerhouse in your hands. The OPPO f19 mobile phone provides enough specs to make viewing movies, and shows, watching YouTube videos a joy on its massive 6.4-inch screen. Speaking of the screen, the resolution is crisp, and the size is ginormous yet the phone still feels easy to hold in one hand. The cameras, on the other hand, are a bit lackluster. They perform adequately during the day but nighttime photographs leave much to desire.

OPPO f17

OPPO f17 price is around ₹16,300 if you buy it from Croma’s website. OPPO f17 specs are as follows:

  • 16.36 cm (6.44″), FHD Plus
  • 6GB RAM | 128GB ROM | Android 10
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon Octa Core 662 Processor
  • Rear Cameras 16MP + 8MP + 2MP + 2MP | Front Camera 16MP
  • 4015 mAh Lithium-Ion Battery
  • In-Display Fingerprint Sensor | Proximity Sensor

As you can see by the specs, OPPO f17 is quite similar to f19 in terms of performance. Just like the f19, this device has 6 GB RAM, 128 GB internal storage, and an Octa-Core 662 Qualcomm processor chipset. Where the device stands out, in my opinion, is its screen-to-body ratio. It has a 90.7% screen-to-body ratio making the bezels look sleek and narrow. Combine this with the smaller battery, ultra-sleek, leather-feel body, and a thickness of just 0.74 cm, the phone feels comfortable to hold in the hands. Due to the slim blueprint of the phone, people with smaller hands might prefer this device over the f19. And the Dynamic Orange color is the one to go for. It is bright and colorful and makes you stand out from the crowd.

OPPO Find X2

OPPO Find X2 is around ₹58,000. OPPO Find X2 specs are as follows:

  • RAM 12 GB
  • Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 865
  • Rear Camera 48 MP + 12 MP + 13 MP
  • Front Camera 32 MP
  • Battery 4200 mAh
  • Display 6.7 inches

The OPPO Find X2 series are monstrous devices in terms of performance. Even the non-pro version can handle any number of apps you throw at it, thanks to the 12 gigabytes of RAM combined with the lightning-fast Snapdragon 865 processor. It is the same processor featured in the Samsung Galaxy s20 range of flagship devices. So OPPO knew what it was doing by making the Snapdragon 865 the powerhouse behind the device.

And to top that, the gigantic screen size of 6.7-inch comes with QHD+ resolution and a 120-Hz refresh rate, which, in my opinion, is one of the brightest, most vividly colorful screens on the market. The high refresh rate and speedy processor make it a killer combo, perfect for gaming at max settings. Holding the phones gives you the familiar flagship feel of premium glass and metal design.

The OPPO find x2 camera has a 48MP rear camera, optical image stabilization, phase detection, and laser autofocus, as well as a wide-open f/1.7 lens but it performs inferior to the rest of the competition in its class.

With a 13MP 52mm telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom and a 12MP ultra-wide camera, the Oppo Find X2 falls short in terms of resolution and zooming capability. Aside from those drawbacks, all three cameras can produce good-looking images in well-lit situations and even in low-light scenarios.

One of the phone’s substantial shortcomings has to be its battery life. 4200 mAh battery seems like a giant oversight by OPPO since the 120 Hz QHD+ screen and Snapdragon 865 processor consume significant power resources. The issue worsens if there are any background apps or an undetectable Android spy app for the latest OPPO devices installed on the phone.

XNSPY is one example of such a spy app that employers and parents use to prevent excessive Internet use and sharing of trade secrets. It runs in stealth mode, so there is no way to confirm since they do not show up in the installed apps list. The program stealthily extracts the phone’s data and sends it remotely to a user’s online account. Since this process uses the Internet, it can slow down the phone and cause heating issues. So you might feel your phone’s battery is draining ever quicker.

OPPO Reno 5 Pro

OPPO Reno 5 Pro’s price is around ₹25,000 if you buy it from the Croma website. OPPO Reno 5 Pro specs are as follows:

  • 6.5-inch FHD Plus Display
  • 8GB RAM | 128GB ROM | Android 11
  • MediaTek Dimensity 1000 Plus Octa-Core Processor
  • R: 64MP + 8MP + 2MP + 2MP | F: 32MP
  • 4350 mAh Lithium Polymer Battery
  • Facial Unlock | Fingerprint Sensor

With its premium specs, such as 8GB RAM, powerful front and back cameras, Android v11 OS, and a good display, the OPPO Reno 5 Pro might be a buyer’s joy. Corning Gorilla Glass protection is available on both the front and back of the device, making it a solid investment. Even though it is not extensible, the 128GB storage capacity is sufficient for storing massive amounts of data and games. OPPO has equipped the handset with the MediaTek Dimensity 1000 Plus chipset for gamers. OPPO Reno 5 pro battery can provide a full day’s use, so you don’t have to worry about the device dying during your gaming session.

The OPPO Reno 5 Pro review remains incomplete without mentioning the phone’s 6.55-inch OLED display. The smartphone’s bezel-less punch-hole display has a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels with a refresh rate of 90 Hz. Playing games on it feels a breeze as the higher refresh rate makes every motion feels smooth and fluid.

OPPO a53s

OPPO a53s is a budget device available for ₹15,000 from Flipkart. OPPO a53s features are as follows:

  • 6 GB RAM | 128 GB ROM | Expandable up to 1 TB with an SD card
  • 6.52″ HD+ Display
  • Rear Cameras: 13MP + 2MP + 2MP | 8MP Front Camera
  • 5000 mAh Battery
  • MediaTek Dimensity 700 Processor
  • Dual-Mode 5G | Ultra Clear Eye Care Display | Side Fingerprint Unlock

The OPPO A53s 5G got designed to provide you with smooth and fast performance, a camera that captures visually stunning photographs, and a user-friendly interface. This smartphone has an MTK Dimensity 700 5G chip, a 5000 mAh battery for long-term use, and an AI Triple Camera system for taking decent photos. Just do not expect flagship levels of photo details.

It’s a budget device, thus providing decent overall performance at a lower price range. So there isn’t any premium feel when you hold the phone, which is to be expected. The battery life is plenty and can effortlessly run for a day and a half, thanks to the 5000 mAh battery power. Overall, the device offers significant value for money and should be considered if on a tight budget.
