Verdict

Well, this smartphone has been either made out of a hurry or they have just forgotten the market competition. It is because OPPO’s former brother RealMe has a better smartphone at the smartphone just without that “notch”.

The smartphone’s major drawback is its processor. If it would have a Snapdragon 600 series processor, then it would be a killer… Though its design, the “notch”, OPPO’s signature camera and its branding makes it costlier. If it would Rs.2k cheaper then also it would be like just to its price perspective.

But if you are a fan of the notch and looking for a mid-range smartphone then OPPO A5 won’t be a bad choice either…
