Oppo A57

Like other Oppo handsets, the A57 retools its Android operating system with Oppo's proprietary ColorOS, an interface that more closely resembles iOS than traditional Android. It's not quite a 1:1 iPhone experience, but thanks to the A57's budget price, it allows an entirely new audience of phone users to enjoy the core tenets of Apple's design without going broke in the process.


Design

  • Essentially an Android-powered doppelganger of the iPhone 7
  • Support for 3.5mm headphones and microSD cards gives it a leg up on Apple's handsets

Camera

  • 16MP front-facing camera is a big plus for selfie-snappers
  • Versatile enough for the camera needs of most phone users

Performance

  • Standard performance for a budget handset
  • Should be adequate for most general tasks

Battery

  • Capable of up to 11 hours of video playback according to Oppo
  • Should get the average person through a full day with little trouble

Pricing and availability

  • Price: RRP $328
  • Where to buy: eBay
