The Oppo A5 2020 when judged against its price comes out very well indeed: for not much money at all, you get a device that is competent in most areas and really good in a couple.

The budget end of the handset market is a tough place, where compromises must be made to create a serviceable phone. In this case, the RAM, camera setup, screen and internal storage are all trimmed back. But on the plus side, there's excellent battery life, a smart industrial design, some nice added...

The Oppo A5 2020 is bread-and-butter proof that you don’t need to spend a fortune for some impressive bits of kit on a smartphone. With a 5000mAh battery, a large display and an aesthetically-pleasing design to boot. The camera isn’t as strong as what we’ve seen on other budget phones, but this is s...

There’s nothing inherently wrong with the Oppo A5, but it’s hard to see why you’d buy one over the Moto G8 Plus or the Xiaomi Note 8T. Both have better screens, better cameras and indistinguishable performance overall for around the same price. If you see the Oppo A5 on the cheap, it may still be wo...

There’s nothing inherently wrong with the Oppo A5, but it’s hard to see why you’d buy one over the Moto G8 Plus or the Xiaomi Note 8T. Both have better screens, better cameras and indistinguishable performance overall for around the same price. If you see the Oppo A5 on the cheap, it may still be worth a gamble. Otherwise, it’s just another also-ran in a section of the market that’s fast becoming a two-horse town.

The Oppo A5 2020 is great for the hardcore phone user who isn’t a hardcore tech snob. A big screen and battery let you stream a lot of music and video, and play games without having to worry about running out of charge. We’ve found living with the Oppo A5 2020 to be blissed-out. It has a good-enough screen, strong speakers, feels fast and can even take good photos while the sun is up.

For £179 you get a lot of phone

from TrustedReviews

The Oppo A5 2020 is just the kind of phone I end up recommending most often to friends. Its cost is low enough to make a SIM-free buy perfectly reasonable, it looks good and should have the CPU power, RAM and battery capacity to make use headache-free.

One of the best in the segment

from PC-Tablet

With good performance, battery life and camera on offer, the Oppo A5 2020 is undoubtedly a phone worth recommending since it ticks all boxes for an average user. If your highest priority is the battery life, while making no compromises on performance, then the new Oppo A5 is certainly the way to go for.
