When it comes to the best Oppo phones, they all stand out from the crowd. That’s thanks to their typically vibrant colors and distinctive features in some cases such as pop-up cameras. With intriguing designs, it’s useful then that they also offer top battery life, performance and camera capabilities, so there’s no chance of them being style over substance.
With loads of Oppo phones out there, from the top-end Find devices to the mid-range Reno and budget A-line handsets, there’s sure to be a phone from Oppo that’s perfect for you. We’ve taken a look at the best of the bunch and ranked them accordingly. For now, the Oppo Find X2 Pro is our pick of the bunch thanks to its gorgeous display and great camera, but we think that’s likely to change in a few months with news of the Oppo Find X3 arriving in March.
Best phones by brand
Previously huge in its native China, Oppo has made big strides into the European phone market over the last couple of years, cementing itself as a genuine alternative from more well-known brand names. We suspect that’s going to continue for a while to come.
That success is in part because of the wide variety of options. As you’ll see, all of the Oppo devices below offer all the key features you could need, while encompassing every budget too. There’s something for everyone courtesy of the Oppo brand.
While the likes of the Oppo Find X2 Pro and Oppo Find X3 cover the top-end of the smartphone market, 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.
Be aware though – Oppo has a slightly unconventional naming system. While you might see a lot of mentions of Reno or Find branded phones, each is quite different from the last. Don’t forget to take a look at our full reviews – as well as the rankings – for a more in-depth explanation of what that means to you and the features they offer.

Best Oppo phones
The Oppo Find X2 Pro is 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 best Oppo phone you can buy right now.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The A72 is a solid if slightly unexciting phone. Despite its sleek design it feels a little cheap in its construction, and performance is not as good as we’d expect even at this price point.
These issues aside, the phone is perfectly serviceable with amazing battery life eked from its large 5,000mAh cell. With light use you can definitely get two days from it. There’s also a headphone jack and headphones in the box, plus four cameras on the back that take pretty great photos (at least with the capable 49MP main sensor).
It’s not the best Oppo phone, but it’s certainly better than other brand’s phones at this price.
