It comes as a bit of a surprise to learn that Oppo, the Chinese smartphone company, was only founded in 2004 and started out producing MP3 players.

Today, it is the largest Chinese smartphone manufacturer, and one of the world’s leading companies investing in research and development.

According to IDC, Oppo is the third largest smartphone brand in Australia by market share. Considering it offers a huge range of models, deciding which model is right for your needs can be a bit of a challenge.

We’re here to help

So to help, we’ve pulled together this guide of the best Oppo phone models in Australia.

We did extensive research to find the Oppo smartphones most recommended by expert review sites.

Of course, your needs may vary. You may also be interested in our recommendations for the best phones in Australia, the best Android phones, and the best camera phones.

We’ve also rounded up the best brand phones as well:

If you’re on a budget, we also have a roundup of the best cheap phones in Australia.

These are the best Oppo phone models in Australia right now:

Oppo Find X5 Pro

Recommended by 6/8 review sites

The Oppo Find X5 Pro is a 5G powerhouse that sits at the top of the Oppo lineup.

It offers a stunning 6.7-inch AMOLED display with a 1440 x 3216 resolution and 120Hz refresh rate.

The Find X5 Pro is the first smartphone from Oppo that leverages the company’s partnership with Hasselblad, which means its camera is one its real strengths. Its photos are good enough to help the phone appear in our list of the best camera phones.

If you want an Oppo phone and you want the best, then this is the first place you should look.

Oppo Find X5

Recommended by 4/8 review sites

The Find X5 may be missing the “pro” moniker from the top phone on this list, but it still packs in plenty of goodness to make it worth your consideration.

The X5 has a slightly smaller and lower-specced screen than the Pro model, running at 6.55 inches and Full HD+ resolution.

The Snapdragon 888 processor isn’t as fast as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 found in the X5 Pro either, but it’s no slouch.

Best of all, you get Hasselblad’s camera tech in the Find X5 with similarly specced lenses, so photographers can enjoy premium results for a lower price.

Oppo Reno 8 Pro

Recommended by 3/8 review sites

The Reno 8 Pro is targeted at those looking for premium features at a reasonable price.

Oppo has included its 80W fast charging in this device, which impressively takes an empty battery to full in just over 30 minutes.

Powered by an 8-core Mediatek processor and 8GB of RAM, you’ll get plenty of grunt from the Reno 8.

The camera doesn’t quite compare to the Find X5 Pro, so photographers may want to look elsewhere.

Oppo Find N2 Flip

Recommended by 3/8 review sites

Folding screens are still new enough to be something of a novelty, but on the Oppo Find N2 Flip feels like a natural inclusion.

Oppo has somehow made the crease from the folding screen almost invisible, which creates a stunning 6.8-inch screen when open.

The outside of the phone also houses a smaller screen, which is useful for quick notifications without having to open the phone.

There are some sacrifices though – there’s no IP rating, so don’t get this phone wet. The camera could also be a little better.

But overall this is a premium option for anyone after a folding phone.

Oppo Reno 8

Recommended by 3/8 review sites

The Reno 8 offers mid-range phone buyers a solid option.

With impressive battery life that will last up to two days, plus fast charging support, this is a phone that will keep going when you need it.

The camera is decent without being exceptional, and performance is fast enough for most tasks thanks to the Mediatek processor.

Oppo Find X5 Lite

Recommended by 3/8 review sites

The low cost version of the excellent Find X5 family of phones may not have the same Hasselblad cameras as the rest, but it still offers plenty to the discerning buyer.

You get a slimline, comfortable phone with a nice 6.43-inch OLED display complete with fast charging capabilities.

The main camera is pretty good too – not as good as the lenses on the Find X5 and X5 Pro, but still decent.

There are sacrifices to the speakers and build quality to hit this price, but overall it’s still a good option for those on a budget.


How we chose the best Oppo phone in Australia

Review sites – including this one – are subjective by nature. Everybody has a different opinion of what is best.

So to try and counter the fact that every best guide on the internet has a different opinion of what is best, we approached our list by combining the results of some of the top sites recommending Oppo phones on the market today.

To determine this list, we followed the same journey most consumers would follow: we went to Google.

We searched for “Best Oppo phone” and identified 8 of the top results. It’s important to note that Google results can change often. The full list of sites we referenced is outlined below:

We listed out all of the Oppo phones listed on each site, tidying up any slight differences in spelling for consistency.

We calculated how often each product was mentioned across those eight guides. The more frequently a product is mentioned, the more agreement there is between experts reviewing these products.

We set a minimum of three mentions across all eight guides to be eligible for inclusion here.

Before we created this page we took some time to remove products that are either unavailable, or difficult to find in Australia.

We also leveraged our own experience with products to ensure that we wouldn’t be recommending any product that doesn’t deliver.

What to look for when choosing the best Oppo phone in Australia

The Oppo Find X5 Pro on a desk

Whether you’re after one of the models listed above or something completely different, the decision factors you need to consider when buying a new Oppo phone is the same.

Do you want a flip phone

Oppo is one of the few brands that offers a folding phone form factor with its Find N2 Flip model.

So if you’ve decided you want to buy an Oppo phone, the next question you should ask is whether you want a phone that folds. If it is, then the N2 Flip is the right phone for you. If not, you should consider the next steps.

Price

Whether you opt for a foldable phone or not, the next decision factor has to be price.

Once you know your budget, you can begin narrowing down the selections on the best Oppo phone for you.

Oppo has a range of models at all price points, so the next step will be important.

Features and functions

Oppo may have begun life as a low-cost alternative to the Apple ecosystem, but today they are a behemoth in the smartphone world.

Oppo has pushed the market forward with features like fast charging and in-screen fingerprint sensors.

Look for the features you need in a smartphone, and go from there.

Camera requirements

One of the biggest differentiators between smartphones today is the camera.

Oppo’s camera quality can vary dramatically from model to model. If camera quality is important, you will need to look at some of the more premium smartphones in Oppo’s lineup.

The good news is those top-tier models are fantastic. The Find X5 Pro is currently listed in our list of the best camera phones in Australia, thanks in part to a partnership with camera brand Hasselblad.
