The best OPPO smartphones


The marketing of OPPO a53 in Italy began in October 2020, with 4 colors and a single memory variant. Given the poor optimization of the frames and the 6.5-inch screen, the dimensions (163.9 x 75.1 x 8.4 mm and 186 grams of weight) make it difficult but not impossible to use with one hand. Nothing to say regarding the 5.00 mAh battery, with fast charging at 18 watts, it will always take you in the evening, even on the most demanding days, and with some precautions you will even reach two days. Nothing special about the photographic sector, with 13 megapixel main sensor (f / 2.2) with two 2 megapixel sensors for macro and depth. In the average of the market range the photos taken, with the classic problems when the light goes down.

It has been in Italy since the end of 2020, in a single memory variant and two color variants, including the very particular Neon. Decidedly bulky with its 162, x 75 x 7.9 mm (177 grams thick), ergonomics are at the limit, but with a 6.5-inch screen it’s hard to get better results. Fortunately, the low weight facilitates its use even with one hand. A 4,000 mAh battery with 18 watt charging takes you into the evening, as long as you don’t overdo it, difficult, unless the use is very limited, to get to two days. Discrete the camera that the main sensor from 16 megapixel (f / 2.2) alongside an 8 megapixel sensor (f / 2.2) with wide angle lens (FoV 119 degrees) and a 2 megapixel sensor (f / 2.4) for portraits. On average the photos, good in optimal conditions, revisable when the light goes down.


It came as a surprise to Italy in March 2021, offering Android 11 and 5G connectivity at a great price. Far from compact (162.9 x 74.7 x 8.4 mm and 190 grams of weight), also due to the 6.5-inch screen, it remains within the limits of usability with one hand, albeit with some stunt. The 5,000 mAh battery is good, even if to contain the price there is only the 10 W recharge which involves long charging times. No problem, however, to cover even the most demanding days, given the low exhaustion of the components chosen. In the average of the price range the camera, with 48 megapixel main sensor flanked by the inevitable 8 megapixel ultra wide angle and two 2 megapixel sensors. Good photos, but don’t expect extraordinary results.

OPPO Find X2 Lite

It is available on the Italian market from spring 2020 in two different colors and a single memory size (8-128 GB). Not exactly contained dimensions, but with a 6.4-inch display it was not easy to do better: 160.3 x 74.3 x 7.96 mm and 180 grams of weight. Ergonomics are acceptable, thanks also to the low weight compared to other smartphones of the same size. With its 4,015 mAh the OPPO Find X2 Lite battery is able to always arrive in the evening, even under stress. The VOOC 4.0 fast charge is a Plus and allows you to have the battery recharged in a short time. The rear camera, equipped with four sensors, follows the trend of 2020: the 48 megapixel (f / 1.7) one has become a classic, as well as the 8 megapixel wide angle, which is surrounded by a 2 megapixel monochrome sensor and one for the depth of field, again from 2 megapixels. The photos are very good, even in low light, even if the top of the range are very far away.

OPPO Find X3 Neo

OPPO Find X3 Neo is on the market in our country from March 2021 with two colors and a single memory variant, an intelligent choice to simplify the choice for users. Despite being less bulky than the Pro version (159.9 x 72.5 x 8 mm) and weighing 184 grams, the ergonomics are not at the top due to a very slippery back cover. The slightly curved display helps slightly to improve grip, but the use of a protective cover is recommended to avoid damage. Two modules at 2,250 mAh for a total of 4,500 mAh, with wired charging at 65 watts offer good autonomy, even if on the busiest days it is better to lower the refresh rate. Too bad for the absence of wireless charging which would have increased its value. Excellent quality, very similar to that of the Pro version, with only the ultra wide angle to suffer when the light goes down. The 50 megapixel (f / 1.8) main sensor with OIS is flanked by a 16 megapixel (f / 2.2) ultra wide angle, a 13 megapixel 5x hybrid zoom (f / 2.4) and a 2 megapixel macro sensor ( f / 2.4).

OPPO Find X3 Pro

In Italy it is on sale from March 19, 2021, a week after the launch, with two different colors and a single memory variant. Good ergonomics, thanks to a very nice back cover design, despite important dimensions (163.6 x 74 x 8.3 mm), thanks also to an acceptable weight (193 grams). The front is perfectly symmetrical, which will make design lovers happy. The 4,500 mAh battery, assisted by wired charging at 65 watts and wireless at 30 watts, always takes you to the evening even with the refresh rate at maximum. On busy days it may be useful to reduce it or lower the resolution, to avoid problems. In any case, with a 10 minute charge you will have another two hours of autonomy. Very good camera quality, among the best of the first part of 2021, with main sensor from 50 megapixel (f / 1.8) with OIS, ultra wide angle (FoV 110 degrees) from 50 megapixel (f / 2.2), 5x hybrid zoom from 13 megapixel (f / 2.4) and 3 megapixel (f / 3.0) microscopic sensor. The night mode performs very well when the light goes down but the strong point is the complete 10-bit color management. And the microscope camera is a nice exercise in style, a lot of fun especially for introducing the world to the little ones.
