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 3.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great phone I took a chance and bought this phone from Argos. There was no reviews at the time and never heard of the make oppo. I made sure I backed up my contacts and WhatsApp chats before I put my old SIM card in. Not tech minded I found it quite easy to set up. Like all new phones you have to find your way around them and soon I was up n running. This is a great phone and runs a long time on a full charge, I'm still running now still on first charge. Well worth the money but could do with instructions for the novice. Highly recommend this phone, well done Oppo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loads of Bang for Buck Couldn't be happier with this phone. For the price all the phones I looked at had only 32Gb storage so 64GB was a pleasant surprise! The Camera is great, especially the night mode....blown away with how bright the image was without the need for an LED flash. The display is large which i wanted for watching Netflix and was amazed to realise it had dual speakers. Overall a fantastic device for the price!

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.
