OPPO has been one of the last brands of the colossus BBK to arrive in Spain and has done so by stomping with an extensive catalog of mobile phones for all budgets. Its strategy, like other Chinese manufacturers, is to offer good features at a reasonable price, but which OPPO phone to choose? which one suits me best? We help you clear up the unknown OPPO to find the perfect OPPO phone for your needs and budget.
How to choose a good OPPO mobile
OPPO phones in general are distinguished by:
Batteries between 4,000 and 5,000 mAh with a really fast fast charge for your range. The Find X5 and X5 Pro reach 80W of SuperVOOC charging, but in the mid-range there are mid-range models with a most competent power supply of up to 65W
Except for the most basic ranges (OPPO A1X – OPPO A3X – OPPO A5X), the OPPO technical sheet stands out for the benefits of its screenwith AMOLED panels, refresh rates of at least 90Hz and good resolutions.
in hardware they shine at the storage and RAM level, which is especially noticeable in the mid-entry range. Thus, with tight budgets, you will notice that while other brands stick to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM, the Chinese firm offers 6GB and 128GB respectively.
The OPPO phones operating system is ColorOSwhich is already in Color OS 12. This layer of Android, which is gaining in stability and performance with each update, stands out for its wide range of customization options.
Best OPPO phones (2022)
Although taking a look at its technical sheet is the starting point to hit the shot of your choice, in this buying guide we have consulted with the Xataka editors specialized in smartphones, as well as our comparisons and analysis.
Some elections have been unanimous, but in others you will see that there are several alternatives that fit what is required.
If you do not want to spend more than 200 euros
In this price range, the most attractive phone is the Oppo A54 5G (189 euros), although it is worth paying attention to the offers to opt for other terminals, for example the OPPO A76 (219 euros).
This phone stands out in its price range for having the latest connectivity, a 90Hz refresh rate, four cameras and a good 5,000 mAh battery with 18W charging.

If you do not want to spend more than 300 euros
In this price range, it is interesting to look back briefly to opt for the little brother of the previous flagship, the OPPO Find X3 Lite 5G (299 euros), since it is the most attractive phone. In fact, in our analysis we were blunt: an attack on the mid-range with high-end experience. However, the OPPO Reno7, its new and balanced mid-range terminal, is about to be launched.
Balance is the hallmark of this phone, which has some of the most innovative and useful technologies of the moment: 5G connectivity, 65W fast charging, 90Hz refresh panel, high-resolution sound or IP52 protection.
When we tried it, we highlighted the really good results of its camera, the sum of autonomy and fast charging, and the performance of its hardware, closer to the high-end than anything else.

Thus, we urge you to take a look at our analyzes to see how a phone behaves before buying it and what results its cameras offer. We also collect the phones with the best camera that we have analyzed in recent months, where you will find several OPPO models: among the first, with a 9.25 note, Oppo Find X5 Pro (1,299 euros).
