Best Oppo phones of 2021: pick up the best Oppo handset for you

The best Oppo phones can seem a little confusing thanks to the company’s unconventional naming system. That’s why we’ve ranked all the best Oppo phones so you’ll know exactly what’s best, no matter how quirky the name might seem.

Whichever Oppo phone you consider, they all stand out from the crowd. With vibrant use of colors and some distinctive features you’ll struggle to find elsewhere, like a pop-up camera, their original designs stand out. It’s useful then that Oppo phones also typically offer great battery life, overall performance, and solid camera capabilities too. It’s a rich combination of style and substance.

Previously huge in its native China, Oppo has made significant steps into the European phone market over the last couple of years, cementing itself as a genuine and reliable alternative from more well-known brand names. That seems likely to continue for a while to come too.

In part, that’s thanks to the wide variety of options. There are plenty of different Oppo phones out there, ranging from the top-end Find devices to the mid-range Reno handsets, followed by the budget A-line range. There’s something here for everyone, regardless of your budget.

After extensively testing it, we’ve placed the Oppo Find X3 Pro at the top of our rankings. However, there’s also the likes of the Oppo Find X2 Pro and Oppo Find X3 covering the top-end of the smartphone market, and we’ve also looked at middle range options like the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom and the Oppo Find X2 Lite which offers a budget range step into the world of 5G.

Check out our rankings for a quick overview of each of them as well as pros and cons, but don’t forget to take a look at our full reviews for a more in-depth explanation into how each phone could appeal to you, as well as a look at the features offered.

Reasons to buy
+Fantastic cameras+Good looking display

Reasons to avoid
ExpensiveDesign downgrade from predecessor

Easily the best Oppo phone out there, the Oppo Find X3 Pro offers everything you could need from fantastic cameras with bespoke sensors and modes, a great looking screen, powerful processor, and super speedy charging.

If money is no object, you’ll be delighted with the Oppo Find X3 Pro. While it’s arguably not as attractive looking as the Oppo Find X2 Pro and it lacks the periscope camera that’s worked well for its predecessor, it’s impressively powerful with a set of cameras that provide bold and colorful imagery.

For a top-tier experience at a top-tier price, you can’t go wrong here.

2. Oppo Find X2 Pro

Still more than accomplished enough

Specifications
Release date: June 2020
Weight: 200/217g
Dimensions: 165.2 x 74.4 x 8.8/9.5mm
OS: Android 10
Screen size: 6.7-inch
Resolution: 1440 x 3168
CPU: Snapdragon 865
RAM: 12GB
Storage: 256/512GB
Battery: 4,260mAh
Rear camera: 48MP, 13MP, 48MP
Front camera: 32MP

Reasons to buy
+Beautiful display+Feels great to hold

Reasons to avoid
Very priceyMiddling battery life

The Oppo Find X2 Pro is one of the best phone you can buy from Oppo right now, with a top-end display, processor, camera array and software. It seems the company really went all-out to create the best smartphone it could.

The reason you wouldn’t consider picking up this phone is the price – the Oppo Find X2 Pro costs more than the base version of the iPhone 11 Pro Max, which is to say it’s a supremely expensive device with a cost that matches its specs.

If you can look past the high price, however, the Oppo Find X2 Pro is definitely worth your attention, and we’d recommend it as the second best Oppo phone you can buy right now.

3. Oppo Find X2

Not the Pro but not far off

Specifications
Release date: June 2020
Weight: 192/209g
Dimensions: 164.9 x 74.5 x 8mm
OS: Android 10
Screen size: 6.7-inch
Resolution: 1440 x 3168
CPU: Snapdragon 865
RAM: 8/12GB
Storage: 128/256GB
Battery: 4,200mAh
Rear camera: 48MP, 13MP, 12MP
Front camera: 32MP

Reasons to buy
+Superb screen+Very fast charging

Reasons to avoid
No wireless chargingCameras not market best

The Find X2 is most of the phone the Find X2 Pro is but with a few differences that make it cheaper. The main difference is its triple cameras, which while very good are capable of only 2x optical zoom, and have fewer megapixels on the ultrawide lens.

This aside, the X2 performs superbly with an outstanding 6.7in OLED display inside a slim glass (or ceramic) and metal body. WIth 65W wired charging you can also fully charge the phone from dead in 38 minutes.

It’s available with 8/12GB RAM and 128/256GB storage so it’s a fast phone that you won’t fill up in a hurry. All models run on the excellent Snapdragon 865 chip too. If you can put up with the minor differences from the X2 Pro, the X2 is cheaper for much the same experience.

4. Oppo Find X2 Neo

Charmingly powerful for the price

Specifications
Release date: April 2020
Weight: 171g
Dimensions: 159.4 x 72.4 x 7.7 mm
OS: Android 10
Screen size: 6.5-inch
Resolution: 1080 x 2400
CPU: Snapdragon 765G
RAM: 12GB
Storage: 256GB
Battery: 4,025mAh
Rear camera: 48MP + 13MP + 8MP + 2MP
Front camera: 32MP

Reasons to buy
+Excellent screen quality+Versatile cameras

Reasons to avoid
Rear is a fingerprint magnetNo 3.5mm audio jack

The Oppo Find X2 Neo offers mostly what you could need for the price. It has an excellent and smooth OLED screen thanks to a 90Hz refresh rate, along with some powerful speakers. Combined, we think it’s a solidly dependable gaming phone.

In addition, there’s strong photography prowess here too with a versatile and reliable camera that can even content with night shots pretty well. The only flaw here is some somewhat overcooked colors.

The phone itself looks rather unremarkable and the back of it is a fingerprint magnet but everything else about the Oppo Find X2 Neo feels solidly reliable and appealing.

5. Oppo Reno 10x Zoom

Oppo’s best mid-ranger

Specifications
Release date: June 2019
Weight: 210g
Dimensions: 162 x 77.2 x 9.3mm
OS: Android 9
Screen size: 6.6-inch
Resolution: 1080 x 2340
CPU: Snapdragon 855
RAM: 6/8/12GB
Storage: 128/256GB
Battery: 4,065mAh
Rear camera: 48MP, 13MP, 8MP
Front camera: 16MP

Reasons to buy
+Sleek design+Fast processor

Reasons to avoid
A little heavyUI a touch slow

The Oppo Reno 10x Zoom, named after its 10x hybrid zoom, is one of the best smartphones you can buy right now. It has got a sleek design, with rear cameras that are flush with the back of the phone, and a distinct ‘shark-fin’ pop-up camera section that houses the selfie camera, as well as the rear flash.

The Reno 10x Zoom also has a fantastic camera array, including its 48MP main snapper and the 13MP telephoto lens, which is responsible for the 10x zoom (although there’s only actually 5x optical zoom, so the name is a touch misleading).

Sure, the device is a little bulky, and not exactly great for one-handed use – but that tends to be the case with tanks of phones like this, and there are alternative devices if it’s too much.

6. Oppo Find X2 Lite

An affordable 5G phone

Specifications
Release date: May 2020
Weight: 180g
Dimensions: 160.3 x 74.3 x 8mm
OS: Android 10
Screen size: 6.4-inch
Resolution: 1080 x 2400
CPU: Snapdragon 765G
RAM: 8GB
Storage: 128GB
Battery: 4,065mAh
Rear camera: 48MP, 8MP, 2MP, 2MP
Front camera: 32MP

Reasons to buy
+Affordable 5G+Good-looking screen

Reasons to avoid
Slow at timesCan get hot

The most affordable and junior member of the Find X2 family, the Oppo Find X2 Lite is a great 5G phone for people who don’t want to break the bank on one.

The phone isn’t a one-trick pony though – it has a good screen, a decent chipset for its price, and a main camera that’ll take bright and bold pictures. It’s a powerful all-rounder that’d be great for its price even if 5G wasn’t involved.

The only thing stopping this phone being higher on our list of the best Oppo phones is that the more premium members of the Find X2 line arguably offer better value for money, as they’re pricier but offer a lot more.

7. Oppo Reno 4 Pro 5G

Sleek looks for a price

Specifications
Release date: June 2020
Weight: 172g
Dimensions: 159.6 x 72.5 x 7.6 mm
OS: Android 10
Screen size: 6.55-inch
Resolution: 1080 x 2400
CPU: Snapdragon 765G
RAM: 8/12GB
Storage: 128/256GB
Battery: 4,000mAh
Rear camera: 48MP + 13MP + 12MP
Front camera: 32MP

Reasons to buy
+Fast charging+Smart design

Reasons to avoid
No wireless chargingNo water or dust resistance

The Oppo Reno 4 Pro 5G looks rather stylish and suggests some high-end performance. In reality, it offers decent performance but at a hefty price compared to the competition, but we still like what it does. It has a comfier form factor than many other Oppo phones and looks that bit classier.

Remarkably, it charges up fast too. While the 4,000mAh battery doesn’t sound impressive, it makes up for it by going from 0% to 100% in just 30 minutes which is great if you’re in a rush.

The Oppo Reno 4 Pro 5G also has a competent camera under the hood too, although don’t expect the most powerful performance for this price point.

8. Oppo Reno 2

The Oppo Reno’s successor

Specifications
Release date: September 2019
Weight: 189g
Dimensions: 160 x 74.3 x 9.5mm
OS: Android 9
Screen size: 6.5-inch
Resolution: 1080 x 2400
CPU: Snapdragon 730G
RAM: 8GB
Storage: 128/256GB
Battery: 4,000mAh
Rear camera: 48MP, 13MP, 8MP, 2MP
Front camera: 16MP

Reasons to buy
+Decent camera capabilities+Snappy charging

Reasons to avoid
Battery life lackingMediocre processing power

The Oppo Reno 2 is an improved version of the Oppo Reno, with better camera capabilities and a bigger battery, among other changes. It also came out for exactly the same price tag, making its predecessor rather redundant, at least unless you see it in a sale.

Sure, the Reno 2 doesn’t top the 10x Zoom, which Oppo left alone as the top-end Reno device, but if you don’t want to splash out for that decidedly mid-range phone, this is a great alternative. You get the stylish design and access to Oppo’s ColorOS branch of Android, just like the other Oppo phones.

9. Oppo Reno 2Z

A slightly modified Reno 2

Specifications
Release date: September 2019
Weight: 195g
Dimensions: 162.4 x 75.8 x 8.7mm
OS: Android 9
Screen size: 6.5-inch
Resolution: 1080 x 2340
CPU: Mediatek Helio P90
RAM: 8GB
Storage: 128/256GB
Battery: 4,000mAh
Rear camera: 48MP, 8MP, 2MP, 2MP
Front camera: 16MP

Reasons to buy
+Low price+Decent battery life

Reasons to avoid
Camera’s just okayNo ‘shark-fin’

The Oppo Reno 2Z is a very similar device to the Reno 2, so much so that we actually reviewed them together. The main differences here are a weaker chipset, and slightly lower camera specs.

For the most part your experience with the Reno 2Z will be the same as with the Reno 2, but if you’re a huge photographer or gamer, you may want to stay away from the Z. Its price is a little lower though, making it a tempting alternative.

10. Oppo A9 2020

Oppo’s latest true budget device

Specifications
Release date: September 2019
Weight: 195g
Dimensions: 163.6 x 75.6 x 9.1mm
OS: Android 9
Screen size: 6.5-inch
Resolution: 720 x 1600
CPU: Snapdragon 665
RAM: 4/8GB
Storage: 128GB
Battery: 5,000mAh
Rear camera: 48MP, 8MP, 2MP, 2MP
Front camera: 16MP

Reasons to buy
+Superb battery life+Good stereo speakers

Reasons to avoid
Plastic backTwo rear cameras redundant

If you’re on a budget, the Oppo A9 2020 could be the best phone for you. It’s Oppo’s most recent device on this list, landing at the end of 2019, and it’s quite the antithesis to the rest of Oppo’s 2019 phone selection, which is mostly the (comparatively) high-end Reno handsets.

The Oppo A9 2020 has a plastic back, 720p screen and standard notch, so it’s not exactly the most premium device, but that’s to be expected at this price. But with four rear cameras, a huge battery and a decent processor, there’s a lot to like here too.
