If you live in Europe, Australasia, or Asia, you've probably come across a few Oppo smartphones.

While Oppo might not be as much of a household name as Samsung in markets like the UK and US, it's actually frequently one of the top five global smartphone brands (on market share) on a regular basis.

We've already seen a shift towards Western tastes and more competitive devices across the board, with constant reworkings and improvements to its Android software skin - ColorOS - alongside more powerful, capable phones like its latest 5G flagship series, the Oppo Find X5, or its China-only foldable the Find N.

The Find X5 is joined by the Find X5 Pro and Find X5 Lite in the company's current flagship line. Note that the company skipped the Find X4, so the Find X3 series are actually last year's models - and thanks to price drops many of the 2020 Find X2 phones are also still solid buys.

The company's Reno line doesn't launch reliably in the UK and Europe, but some Reno options are still around. Then there are the company's budget offerings within the Oppo A series.

We haven't included phones here from the company's two biggest sister brands, but you'll find them in our separate rankings of the best OnePlus phones and best Realme phones.

Best Oppo phones 2022

1

Oppo Find X5 Pro - Best Oppo Phone

Oppo Find X5 Pro
  • Pros
    • Beautiful, unique design
    • Powerful camera
    • Brilliant display
  • Cons
    • Big and heavy
    • No periscope lens
    • Expensive

The Find X5 Pro is Oppo's all-singing, all-dancing flagship device, and it earns its spot at the top of this chart.

Yes, it's expensive, and there's no denying that. But you get the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, 12GB RAM and 256GB storage, and 80W wired charging together with 50W wireless.

The main and ultrawide cameras both pack the same 50Mp sensor, and offer almost exactly the same quality shots, with punchy colours, oodles of detail, and great dynamic range. There's 'only' a 2x zoom camera - no periscopic lens here, sadly - but results are impressive here too.

It's a big, heavy phone - thanks in part to the ceramic rear - and the design takes some getting used to, but this is an excellent all-rounder that delivers in every area.

This is not just Oppo's best phone, but one of the best flagships on the market from any company.

Oppo Find N - Best Foldable

Oppo Find N
  • Pros
    • Incredible folding hardware
    • Strong triple camera
    • Surprisingly affordable
  • Cons
    • No IP rating
    • Only available in China

The Oppo Find N is one of the absolute best foldables around - which makes it such a shame that, for now at least, it's only available in China. 

Still, if you're brave enough to import the phone then you'll find a phenomenal bit of kit. This has one of the sturdiest foldable designs around (though unlike Samsung's latest, there's no waterproofing) along with flagship specs - including a very capable triple rear camera.

Foldables feel like the future of phones, and nowhere more so than in the Find N.

Oppo Find X5 - Best Affordable Flagship

Oppo Find X5
  • Pros
    • Great cameras
    • Unusual design
    • Strong performance
  • Cons
    • No IP rating
    • Not the latest processor

The Oppo Find X5 only loses out on a few of the most elite touches found on the Find X5 Pro. It still retains a premium design, a superb display, and an almost-identical camera setup.

Really all you miss out on are the ceramic body, the IP rating, and the latest chip - with last year's (still excellent) Snapdragon 888 powering the phone instead.

Most importantly, it undercuts plenty of flagship rivals, delivering great value for money right now.

Oppo Find X3 Pro - Best Former Flagship

Oppo Find X3 Pro
  • Pros
    • Striking design
    • Beautiful screen
    • Novel microlens camera
  • Cons
    • Big and bulky
    • Now 1+ years old

The Find X3 Pro was Oppo's top flagship in 2021, and it's still an excellent option.

You get a Snapdragon 888 chipset, 12GB RAM and 256GB storage, and 65W wired charging together with 30W wireless.

Like the Find X5 Pro, the main and ultrawide cameras both use the same 50Mp sensor, and offer almost exactly the same quality shots, with punchy colours, oodles of detail, and great dynamic range. You also get the 2x zoom camera, along with one novelty the newer phone lacks: a microlens camera, capable of taking super-closeup shots.

Those cameras are capable of outputting images in 10-bit colour, and in fact the phone supports true 10-bit storage and encryption too, right through to the 10-bit, 120Hz, WQHD+ display.

Oppo Find X3 Lite - Best Mid-Ranger

Oppo Find X3 Lite
  • Pros
    • Refined design
    • Fast charging
    • 5G
  • Cons
    • Middling camera
    • Now 1+ years old

The Oppo Find X3 Lite is a step up from the previous generation, there’s no denying it. The design improvements may be small, but overall they deliver a much more refined aesthetic and feel.

Factor in the Snapdragon 765G chipset (with 5G support), a 90Hz display, and 65W fast charging and you have a phone that delivers a decent amount for the price.

That said, the mid-range space is extremely competitive and the specs here - especially the camera - don't always hold up against rivals from other manufacturers; you can get more for less elsewhere.

Nonetheless, that doesn’t take away from the fact that this is still a solid phone, and one to consider if you want a device that strikes an even balance between good features and reasonable pricing.

Oppo A54 5G

Oppo A54 5G
  • Pros
    • Affordable
    • 5G support
    • Decent camera
  • Cons
    • Slow charging
    • Poor performance

The Oppo A54 5G is a competitively priced budget 5G phone that's a great choice if you want the latest connectivity tech but don't have a lot to spend - though it does come with compromises within that.

First, the good stuff. The 90Hz LCD display, excellent battery life, and unexpectedly strong camera make this a reliable option despite the price.

As for the bad? You'll have to put up with slow charging - just 10W - and a sub-par chipset, which leaves the A54 stuttering and freezing every now and then.

While this isn't the only 5G phone that costs this little, it's one of the stronger options out there.

Oppo Find X3 Neo

Oppo Find X3 Neo
  • Pros
    • Dazzling design
    • Good camera
    • Fast charging
  • Cons
    • Over-price
    • No IP rating
    • Now 1+ years old

The Oppo Find X3 Neo is a solid phone, but it can't help but feel a bit backward - the result of the fact that it's actually the 2020 Oppo Reno 5 Pro+, re-branded for the western market.

We love the slim design, fast 65W charging, and reliable camera performance, but the use of 2020's Snapdragon 865 chipset and a 90Hz display prevent the Find X3 Neo from feeling truly competitive at full price.

Oppo A53

Oppo A53
  • Pros
    • Budget-friendly
    • Attractive design
    • Great battery life
  • Cons
    • Average camera
    • Slow performance
    • Now 1+ years old

Performance holds the A53 back from being a great budget offering but it still impresses, thanks to a smooth 90Hz display and outstanding longevity from its 5000mAh battery.

Its design is also pretty appealing and if you prefer Oppo's ColorOS user experience to OnePlus's this makes for a great alternative to its doppelgänger, the OnePlus Nord N100.

Oppo Find X2 Pro

Oppo Find X2 Pro
  • Pros
    • Display still exceptional
    • 10x zoom camera
    • Fast charging
  • Cons
    • No wireless charging
    • Poor colour options
    • Now 2+ years old

The Oppo Find X2 Pro may be two years old now, but it's still a phenomenal phone by any measure. The 6.7in, 10-bit, 120Hz, QHD+ panel remains one of the best displays in any phone right now and Oppo backs it up with 65W wired charging, and a top-tier camera that boasts two 48Mp lenses and up to 10x hybrid zoom.

You’ll have to live without wireless charging, and the choice between bland grey ceramic or garish green or orange vegan leather finishes might leave some struggling to find a design that suits their style.

For pure performance though, the Find X2 Pro is still a beast, with all of the above plus a Snapdragon 865, 512GB storage and 12GB RAM. The biggest downside used to be the £1,099 asking price, but it's now available for much less, and all the better for it.

Oppo Find X2 Neo

Oppo Find X2 Neo 5G
  • Pros
    • Slim design
    • Solid performance
  • Cons
    • Over-price
    • Now 2+ years old

You'd be forgiven for mistaking the Find X2 Neo for a fully-fledged flagship, with a stunning display, versatile cameras, great fast-charging and more.

At launch the Neo was a little on the pricey side, but it's gotten cheaper since. If it's a thin, stylish design you're after, this should serve you well for a long time.
