Design and display

Stylish design

Available in a range of colour gradients inspired by nature, the OPPO A5 has an ergonomic design that makes it easier to grip – ideal for avoiding unwanted drops and bumps.


Waterdrop Notch display

The large 6.5” Waterdrop Notch display helps to keep you immersed. You’ll be able to see the screen clearly even in direct sunlight, and harmful blue light is filtered out to look after your eyes.


You can even unlock the screen using nothing but your face – handy when you’ve got your hands full!



Capture every moment

Never miss a moment. The OPPO A5 combines 5 cameras into a single phone, so you can capture every detail of your adventures. From the Ultra Wide 119° rear lens to the AI Beautification in the front-facing camera, every image you share with your friends, family and followers will be stunning.


Record with a steady hand

Tired of the camera shaking while you’re moving around? With Video Stability, you can record every moment with perfect clarity if you’re on the go (even if you’re running or riding in a vehicle!)


Under the hood

Powerful performance

Powered by a Snapdragon processor, the OPPO A5 makes sure all your favourite apps runs quickly and smoothly. Plus, with Game Boost 2.0 you’ll enjoy faster, more responsive mobile gaming.


If there’s a song that’s stuck in your head, share it with the world. The full-bodied 360° audio from the dual speakers with Dolby Atmos makes sure everything sounds clear, even at full volume.



Reverse charging

Watch videos, play games and stream music non-stop for more than 11 hours with the powerful battery. You can even reverse charge other devices to keep everything going for longer.

OPPO A5 2020 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this phone I bought the Oppo A5 early this year as my other phone broke. This phone has everything I need. I can find everything easily thanks to the icons for the apps. I can use the fingerprint sensor to further secure my phone, I can use this phone without needing my glasses because everything is nice & clear & the letters & icons are nice & big. With my other phone I had to hold it really close to my face with & without my glasses I get more storage & longer battery as well. I can't sing this phone's praises enough. I've told my partner I love this phone so much, that he's thinking about getting one for himself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A NEW PAIR OF SPECS ARE REQUIRED! The specifications for this mobile telephone are wrong on this website, because this smartphone DOES NOT HAVE AN AMOLED DISPLAY, OR FAST CHARGING CAPABILITIES. I was expected to be greeted by an awesome looking AMOLED DISPLAY, AND FAST CHARGING CAPABILITIES, but i couldn't be more wrong! Hats off to all of the Chinese engineers at Oppo, for unleashing this beast into the wild, at a very affordable price point!! From it's classy looking chassis, to it's silky smooth performance, this smartphone is pure class!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It doesn't have an amoled display This phone DOES NOT have an amoled display, nor fast charging capabilities as advertised, but other than that, it performs like a champ! Why pay a thousand pounds or more on a flagship, when you can buy one of these for a fraction of the price?
