The R15 boasts solid build quality with a heavy emphasis on style.
- Stylish design
- Powerful and capable camera
- Big and bold display
- Less powerful than your average premium smartphone
- No water resistance
- ColorOS continues to deliver a love-it-or-hate-it experience
The Oppo R15 offers a large display and a touch of class at a price around half that of most flagship smartphones.
Oppo’s line of Android phones has slowly been winning over the world with its mid-tier phones, often with features that mirror those found in premium handsets.
The Oppo R15 looks set to continue that tradition with a high-style design that lacks the high price tag of the big-name flagships.
We recently went hands-on with the Oppo R15 in Oppo’s hometown of Shenzen in China. Based on our brief time with the phone, here's how it shook out.
- Colourful and stylish designs stand out from the pack.
- The improved ColorOS is nice, but probably won't win over naysayers.
- High-powered lenses deliver some of the sharpest shots on the smartphone market.
- Plenty of beautification and AI processing techniques to further improve your photos.
- As fast and responsive as you'd expect a premium smartphone to be.
- 6GB of RAM provides plenty of capacity for multi-tasking.
- Should have no issue getting you through a full day on a single charge.
- VOOC flash charging makes topping up quick and easy.
- A top-quality flagship smartphone that won't break the bank.
