Design and Display

When it comes to battery power, this exceptional Oppo device packs a 3450mAh powerful capacity battery. The battery offers VOOC Quick Charge Ultra Power Saving mode so you can keep your mobile phone charged for an extended period of time in between charges. This mode alters your display screen to black and white and closes all vital features to dramatically decrease the battery consumption.


Oppo R15 comes with dual camera set-up on the back, 16MP + 5MP. According to the manufacturer, the primary dual camera with nice flash is efficient enough to provide incredible photo results even in low light conditions.

The R15’s cameras have the general Oppo "beautification" tools for the perfect selfie. Along with this great tool, you will also avail a smart AI scene recognition from the primary shooters.

Furthermore, the dual camera lets you enjoy those trendy bokeh effects in portrait mode. Both models offer new virtual lighting modes for further tweaking the results.

When you come to the front side of the phone, you will also get a massive 20MP highest quality camera with f/2.0 aperture for shooting beautiful and amazing Selfies.

  • Water resistance
  • High quality camera

Oppo R15 Cons

  • A micro USB charging
