OPPO A53 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great budget phone Bought this about 6 months ago and tbh wasn't gonna review it, mostly because I forgot...but it's been fantastic has every feature you need of a phone, the camera isn't the best but it's not that bad either I love the fingerprint sensor and where it's positioned but the reason I'm leaving this review...I just dropped the phone I'm currently typing this review with in the bath...completely submerged turned it off quickly and dried it with some bog roll gave it a minute and working like it did before 0 issues it's not advertised as waterproof I wouldn't recommend testing it but for a budget phone the fact I still have a phone after that I can't complain at all about this phone...except they need to make more phone cases as it's not the easiest phone to get a decent case for oh and the battery life is amazing..I play games and am on my phone almost all day everyday and the battery comfortably lasts all day even on full brightness all day

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No disappointing I bought this phone a week ago, and so far is going excellent, is really fast and don't glitch at all. The only cons I could say is that at the beginning it did get really hot while charging (but not anymore) and that the camera is a lil less that I expected (if u really care about the camera,go for a better one tho) But overall is really nice to use,comfortable and the colour and speakers are wonderful

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Above average budget fone. I bought this handset November 20 and it's worked faultlessly, done everything I've asked it, and I work a fone hard, downloading, gaming, general computing and the spec has handled all admirably, my one gripe is 2 months in, battery already on the way out, charged bi-nightly at start, charge day and night ( every) now... But hey, I don't think oppo are alone there..
