Oppo R15 Pro

While it would never entirely admit to it, Oppo's business case for the longest time has been in producing smartphones that look almost exactly like iPhones but without the premium price point to go with it.

The Oppo R15 and Oppo R15 Pro shift subtly away from this, delivering a design that's more in line with premium Android handsets but, again, at a slightly lower price point. It's a welcome shift for the Chinese manufacturer, which has also got on board with other technologies that have been missing from the R series since inception, but that might not be enough to make the Oppo R15 Pro your next ideal handset.


Design

  • Vibrant design stands in stark contrast to your typical premium smartphone.
  • Massive 6.28-inch display provides plenty of room to play with.

Camera

  • Produces sharp and clear shots that stand out against those of other mid-range handsets.
  • Plenty of extra modes and tools to further tweak your photos.

Performance

  • Solid performance that sits between the mid-range and top-tier.
  • The iOS-like ColorOS won't appeal to everyone.

Battery life

  • Has no trouble hitting all-day battery life, even with its massive screen.
  • Supports fast-charging via Oppo's proprietary VOOC tech.

Verdict

  • The Oppo R15 Pro is proof that you don't have to pay a premium for a power-packed smartphone.

      Hi Jan,

      Thanks for getting in touch with Finder. I hope all is well with you. 😃

      Regarding your question, the better phone for you would depend on your needs, preference, and budget. To make a better decision, you might want to read our Oppo R17 Pro review here. It should help you compare your options.

      If you want to specifically compare the camera features of each phone, it is worth noting that the Oppo R15 Pro has a dual 16MP f/1.7 + 20MP f/1.7 sensors at the rear and a 20MP front sensor for selfie purposes. On the other hand, the Oppo R17 Pro features has a triple rear-lens array. However, for practical purposes, it’s really just a dual-lens camera. The reason behind this is that alongside a 12 MP, f/1.5-2.4 variable aperture lens and 20 MP f/2.6 telephoto lens, there’s also a tertiary “Time of Flight” (ToF) lens.

      NFC or Near Field Communication is a feature of smartphones that allows you to share data and make payments without an internet connection.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      By the way, you can also reach us by clicking the “Want to chat?” button found on the lower right corner of our page to speak to one of our agents.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Joshua
