Case in point being 5G connectivity.
Now, OPPO is a brand that has strived to offer buyers the best possible value when it comes to their smartphones. This philosophy echoes throughout the company’s offerings like the flagship OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G or the stylish OPPO F19 Pro+ 5G. It also recently launched the OPPO A74 5G, its first 5G offering in the A-Series. It can also be seen in the brand’s latest smartphone, the OPPO A53s 5G.

To ensure that buyers of the OPPO A53s 5G get the best possible experience from their smartphone, the device comes with Smart Antenna Switch technology that equally distributes 5G antennas all through the phone. This lends a stable 5G connectivity regardless of the way you hold the phone. So if you’re having a video chat in portrait mode and suddenly switch to landscape mode, you should have no problems with connectivity.
For added network stability, the phone comes with 5G + Wi-Fi Dual Channel technology. This technology allows the user of 5G and Wi-Fi networks simultaneously. This should allow for a more stable internet connectivity as a single network is no longer responsible for all the data transfer. This means that you should be able to download a file and stream a movie at the same time without hampering each other.

The OPPO A53s 5G comes with a sleek design with rounded corners. These rounded corners help ensure comfortable grip, regardless of how you hold the phone. Further, the smooth lines on the phone are not broken up thanks to smart designed choices, For example, instead of adding a read fingerprint scanner haphazardly placed in the middle of the rear panel, the OPPO A53s 5G features a fingerprint scanner integrated into the power button on the frame.
Of course, the build is also quite smart. The phone weighs 189.6gm that makes it easier to carry in the pocket without feeling like a burden. Further, the phone is 8.4mm thin, making it the sleekest 5G phone in the segment. All in all, this design gives the phone an elegance that should not look out of place, even in the immediate future. This design is available in two striking options, namely Ink Black and Crystal Blue.
The OPPO A53s 5G comes with a 6.52-inch display with an HD+ resolution and a waterdrop screen. It also comes with a special sunlight screen that greatly intensifies the screen brightness when under direct sunlight. This makes the screen more legible under these testing conditions. Of course, with such a view, it's important to take care of your eyes. The OPPO A53s 5G comes with All-Day AI Eye Comfort. The technology automatically adjusts the brightness and preserves the colors as the day progresses. So you won’t have to continually adjust the settings as the ambient light changes around you. This makes the screen easier to look at and minimises discomfort.

In terms of memory, the OPPO A53s 5G offers up to 6GB RAM, which should be plenty for most tasks. However, in case you need even more RAM, the phone comes with a RAM Expansion technology that temporarily boosts RAM. How this works is pretty straight forward. When the phone detects that it needs more RAM, the phone temporarily moves low-frequency apps to the ROM space. This helps free up some more RAM that can be used to give the phone an extra boost when needed. As a result, users should see faster app load times and a general smoothness in usage.
In terms of storage, buyers get up to 128G of space, allowing users to download multiple apps, games and videos with ease.

The Portrait camera helps take bokeh shots in which the subject remains in focus, but the background is blurred. This focuses the attention of the viewer to the subject itself, leading to a more prominent photo. On top of this, users get six filters, giving them an option to personalize their pictures. The macro camera lets users get really up close with their subject and take photos that are detailed and sharp. All these options give users more control and flexibility over the type of photos they want to take.
The OPPO A53s 5G also offers a number of additional features to even greater flexibility. This includes the Ultra Clear 108MP Image that allows the smartphone to take a high resolution 108MP image for greater detail and clarity. This allows users to zoom into the picture and appreciate all the fine details in the subject. There’s also AI scene recognition that allows the phone to automatically recognize up to 22 different scenes. It will then automatically tweak the setting to apply the right amount of saturations and contrast in order to take the best possible photo. This means that each photo you take will be social media worthy! As if that wasn’t enough, the OPPO A53s 5G also comes with an Ultra Night Mode that can brighten up photos taken in low light conditions. So you can continue clicking even when the sun does down.
