OPPO just launched a brand new entry-level smartphone and this phone is going to be a simple one, so let’s get right into it.


So, starting with the design. This phone’s backplate design is one of the most unique that I’ve seen so far. It’s worthy of being on a flagship, yet it’s now on the A60. They call this the Ripple Blue color and I think that’s appropriate as it reminds me of water ripples.

And since this is a budget phone… it is made out of plastic. Not really a problem since plastic is more flexible than glass and has a higher chance of surviving drops.

OPPO is so confident that this budget phone got the MIL-STD 810H shock resistance certification too. Yes, we did drop tests too and the phone survived the drops. It’s exclusive to the video version of this review. 😉

I do like this physical fingerprint scanner on the power button a lot more than having an underdisplay fingerprint scanner.


As for the screen, I’d have to say it’s decent. It’s a 6.67-inch IPS LCD screen with 90Hz refresh rate, and at a resolution of only 1604×720. Yes, a 720p screen.

Why I say it’s decent is because it covers 99% of sRGB and has a maximum brightness of around 970 nits. That’s actually very good for a phone of this price range. Still, I wish it has a 1080p screen though.


One thing that immediately made me say this is a budget phone is because of the chipset. The OPPO A60 is powered by the Snapdragon 680 chipset which is rather… old at this point. And its performance is gonna hit some snags here and there but overall still fine for everyday use.

If you’re planning to play games on this though, then it truly depends on what you want to play. If you’re aiming for Genshin Impact and the likes, then you will really need a lot of patience and tolerance.

By the way, this phone only supports up to 4G because the modem in the Snapdragon 680 does not support 5G – just FYI.


Oh – one more reason why this is considered a budget smartphone is because of the camera. Yes, camera – because only one of it is usable to take pictures. The other one is a 2MP depth sensor that shouldn’t exist in the year 2024.

To have a look at all the pictures taken with the OPPO A60, watch the video at the top of this review.


The software is a bit different from other OPPO phones. We have the usual slew of bloatware like Hot Games and Hot Apps, but now with the addition of Must Play and More Apps. Fineasy is also here, so double tapping the power button does indeed work bring it upping as well – and there is no way to customize this away. It’s the same situation as the OPPO Find N3 Fold.

The OPPO A60 does not have the Shelf feature, which is rather disappointing but understandable.

Other than that, ColorOS works just like how it did before.

Battery life

As for the battery life, this phone comes with a 5,000mAh battery or 19.55Wh – video at the top right corner there to know what is the watt-hour value, and it can last for about 16 hours and 51 minutes in our standardized battery life test. We have to deduct 30 minutes from the result because I turned the screen timeout to 30 minutes.

I think the battery life is to be expected as the Snapdragon 680 is a low-powered chipset and the 720p screen will conserve even more battery.

Charging speed

The charging speed is rather good as well. The OPPO A60 comes with a 45W SuperVOOC charger in the box and it charges the phone from 15% to completion in slightly less than 75 minutes.

Just know that this is a proprietary charging standard so if we plug in a USB-PD charger, it’ll take in only around 17W maximum.

A few more things to mention

And of course, this is a budget phone and it has a USB 2.0 porta at the bottom with no display output capability, but it does have double SIM card slots and a microSD card – all independent from each other. Not only that, it even has an audio jack at the bottom of the phone!

Not sure why these features are only found in budget phones, but I think it should be in more phones.

Does the OPPO A60 offer a good value?

And finally – the phone price. There are two configurations that we can get it for:

  • 8GB RAM + 128GB storage @ RM699
  • 8GB RAM + 256GB storage @ RM799

I think you should always go for the 256GB version. And yet at RM799, I think it’s a good value.

OPPO A60 review

Yes, the Snapdragon 680 is old and the performance coming out is not that good. The cameras are usable but not that great either. The battery life is amazing, and 45W fast charging in a budget phone like this is good. Just too bad that they don’t support up to USB-PD PPS standard.
