In this review, we are certain to get acquainted with having an inexpensive smartphone from OPPO. There are always many affordable phones available on the market, and recently they have become very similar to each other. Let’s learn perhaps the oppo a53 has sufficient performance, perhaps the cameras are good, and in general, if the model may be worth your own time and money.

The brand has been present available on the market for many years and has had its ups and downs. Now the OPPO assortment is wide, and the A53 might not be the cheapest, but it’s still quite affordable. In many ways, this is a compromised device that’s more or less incomparable with more expensive rivals. However, there are several interesting features.

Design, the layout, a fingerprint scanner

Even in inexpensive models, it’s now no problem finding modern features like bezel-less screens with notches. OPPO A53 is exactly that – it seems like a higher-priced model. The screen bezels are minimal, the notch for the front-facing camera in the corner is hidden.

The case is entirely made from plastic, even though the frame appears to be made from metal. No, still plastic, but durable. But the back panel certainly cannot be confused with anything since it’s glossy plastic both to look at and to the touch. Somewhat slippery and hungry for fingerprints.

You can live with fingerprints whenever you get such a beautiful gradient! I obtained the OPPO A53 for the test in a blue colour that goes from light to dark. The gradient on both the sides and the trunk look great. Those who don’t know much about modern devices might think this model is very costly by the looks of it.

You can find two more colour options – mint and black. In these cases, there is no gradient. Nevertheless, the panels of the phones also shimmer in the light.

I’ll add that the trunk of the device collects scratches, but they are visible only in bright light and at an angle. Regardless, it is way better to utilize a cover, which will be within the box and practically doesn’t increase how big the smartphone.

These are sizes. OPPO A53 is equipped with a 6.5-inch screen, so it’s not particularly massive. For me, the dimensions are optimal. And the display is large for comfortable work, and the model fits perfectly in the palm of your hand.

Let’s go back to the trunk panel – onto it, and we visit a camera unit on a slightly protruding module along with a fingerprint sensor. The answer is standard for a reasonable device. In-screen scanners in this price category continue to be a rare sight. Still, in my opinion, the scanner is placed too high. When I have a smartphone in my hand, my finger doesn’t think it is easy. Perhaps this is a matter of habit, and using a case makes things easier.

What’s in the box

In the box with the smartphone, you will see an 18W charger, a USB Type-C cable, a SIM eject tool and a silicon case with an easy cutout for the fingerprint scanner (the finger fits perfectly). There is also a protective film, and it’s glued to the screen.
