OPPO A15 Review
Oppo A15 has an all-plastic body feels solidly built, if entirely unspectacular, and the presence of a micro-USB port is something of a blast from the past (to put it politely).
- Shiny all-plastic build
- MicroUSB and 3.5mm jack
There’s no getting away from the fact that the Oppo A15 is a super-cheap phone. Its entirely plastic design is almost completely without embellishment.
OPPO A15 Display
- 6.52-inch IPS LCD
- Only HD+
At just 720 x 1600, this is HD+/720p as opposed to the FHD+/1080p resolution that most phones shoot for. You won’t be watching Full HD video content natively here, and with a pixel density of just 269ppi, web content and photos won’t exactly pop either.
OPPO A15 Camera
- Triple camera: 13-megapixel wide, 2-megapixel macro, 2-megapixel depth
- Barely adequate in daylight; terrible at night
This smartphone comes with an ostensible triple camera setup, featuring a primary 13-megapixel lens supported by a 2-megapixel macro and a 2-megapixel depth sensor.

Specs and performance
- MediaTek MT6765 very slow
- Meagre 32GB of storage
Powered by MediaTek MT6765 CPU, with a paltry 3GB of RAM supporting it. A Geekbench 5 multicore score of 930 is very low, even when compared to other budget phones.
- 4,230mAh battery
- 10W charging speeds.
This Oppo A15 is powered by a 4,230mAh battery, which is ample for a phone at this end of the market. You’re unlikely to be indulging in hours of gaming given that humble processor.
