The design of the Oppo A54 Series

The Oppo A54 series consist out of two different kinds of smartphones and they are the following:

  • Oppo A54
  • Oppo A54 5G

Obviously you can see already the one difference and that is the network capabilities both of these smartphones have. However, there are more differences and we will reveal them to you bit by bit. But first, is the design of these two smartphones. They are quite different between each other.


A) Oppo A54:


As illustrated above, the Oppo A54 rear camera layout has changed and looks similar to a Samsung A12 look. Also, the Oppo A54 will be available in different colors as compare to its predecessor, Oppo A53s.

The Oppo A54 will be available in the following different colors:

  • Crystal Black
  • Starry Blue


B) Oppo A54 5G:


Now with the Oppo A54 5G design as illustrated above, it is really similar to its predecessor the Oppo A53s. It is strange that the Oppo A54 design is so different with the Oppo A54 5G design. Oppo must have experimented something with the one design and the other to ensure sales just in case the experimented design is not taking any takers.

The Oppo A54 5G will be available in the following colors:

  • Fluid Black
  • Fantastic Purple
  • Space Silver

Out of both designs, I would say the Oppo A54 5G stand out for me due its rear camera layout looks more professional as well of high quality. Would you agree with me or do you prefer more the Oppo A54 design? Let me know in the comment section below. Now on to our next question.


The main features that stand out for the entire Oppo A54 series

The main features that stand out for the entire Oppo A54 series are the following:

  • Large on board storage memory.
  • Excellent rear camera to take high quality pictures from far and close distances.
  • Store large amounts of power inside its battery for a long period. Plus is known to recharge very fast in short amount of time.


Oppo A53s VS Oppo A54 VS Oppo A54 5G

The main differences between the Oppo A53s, Oppo A54 and Oppo A54 5G are the following:

  • Weight – The Oppo A53s is the lightest smartphone to carry and use out the group. However, the other two smartphones are not heavy at all and close to the same weight.
  • Chipset – The Oppo A54 5G offers the best chipset out of the group, whereas the Oppo A54 offers the worst chipset in the group which is very upsetting for the series.
  • Rear Camera – The Oppo A54 5G’s rear camera wins hands down. It has majorly improved compare to the Oppo A53s and is way better than its counterpart the Oppo A54. The Oppo A54 5G has four rear camera lenses while the others only have three camera lenses, plus the megapixels of the Oppo A54 5G is the best and far better than the rest.
  • RAM – Both the Oppo A53s and the Oppo A54 offer the best RAM memory option, whereas the Oppo A54 5G has a lower RAM memory size. Meaning the Oppo A54 5G will process data and applications slower compare to the Oppo A53s and OPPO A54 which is quite a big upset for the Oppo A54 5G.
  • Network Capabilities – The Oppo A53s and the Oppo A54 only has 4G network capabilities and lower. However, the Oppo A54 5G has 5G network capabilities that are way faster than 4G networks to receive and send data. Thus, the Oppo A54 5G is the best smartphone to go through in network connectivity that is very fast.
  • Charging Speed – Both the Oppo A53s and the Oppo A54s can charge its battery with power at 18w per second, while the Oppo A54 5G can only charge its battery with power at 10w per second. That is another downside for the Oppo A54 5G as many users want a smartphone that can charge a lot in a small amount of time.

Overall: The Oppo A54 5G stand out the most in terms of fast network capabilities, fast processing speed with the latest chipset and has the best rear camera specs out of the group. However, it does not offer the best RAM option to handle a lot of applications and data the same time. Plus it does not offer the best fast charging capabilities. Thus, it all depends on which specs do you prefer above the rest.


The retail price for the Oppo A54 series

The Oppo A54 series will be going at the following retail cash prices most likely:

  • Oppo A54 158 EUR / R2735 / $183
  • Oppo A54 5G 240 EUR / R4149 / $277

Please remember that these are not accurate prices and may change.


Where will you be able to purchase the Oppo A54 series smartphones?

The Oppo A54 series will be available soon in MTN stores shortly in the month of October, so keep an eye out for them. The Oppo A54 series is also available to purchase online through Amazon and other platforms.


The Oppo A54 series is a good mid range smartphone to have. But the best smartphone out of the series, is the Oppo A54 5G. Reason why it is the best, is firstly its beautiful elegant design. It will attract many users plus it is not too bulky or heavy to carry or use.

Besides its attractive design, the Oppo A54 5G has wonderful rear camera specs that will satisfy many users. Plus is far better than its predecessor the Oppo A53s. The normal Oppo A54 sadly does not offer the same rear camera specs as the 5G version.

The only concern I have for the series, is its speed to recharge it battery to full power capacity. Many users demand smartphones that charge to full battery power capacity in a small amount of time. The series does offer fast charge, however is not charging the fast like the Xiaomi 11T series or Huawei Nova 8i or the Huawei Nova 8. Thus, the other smartphone brands might win over the users in this category.

Anyways, the Oppo A54 series does offer good quality smartphones at a nice low cost. So only one question remains and I leave the question for you:


Would you consider buying one of the smartphones in the Oppo A54 series?

  1. Hi Burnheart. Thank you for very interesting article. I was just looking for new smartphone, but its not easy to choose with so many options on market. But looking on your review, Oppo A54 5G seems as a great choice. It has great design, camera specs is impressive and price really reasonable. Looking forward to test this model in practice.

    • Hi Cogito

      I get you. There so many different kinds of smartphones available in the market and all of them look so good. Thus  making it hard to choose the right one. That is why I personally write reviews about different kinds of smartphones to help users like you make informed decisions.

      Please share your experience of the Oppo A54 5G when you purchase it. We love to share users experiences of the smartphones we review. Thank you for taking the time to comment.

  2. Hello, and thank you for this descriptive post about the new release of the Oppo A54 series phones in South Africa. I have always been very interested in technology but have been partial to my trusty phone brand. 

    It is fascinating to learn more about the features of these Oppo phones and how they compare to other more mainstream brands. I do find the Oppo A54 5G more attractive than the other one. Especially for its design and colors it comes in.

    I would like to see these smartphones in person. Do you perhaps know where I can go and view them?

    • Hi Erica

      Many users tend to stay with a specific smartphone brand due to the good performance they received out of them. The Oppo smartphone brand is doing well and is in the top 5 best smartphone brand rankings worldwide. Thus, Oppo will not disappoint you.

      The Oppo A54 5G is a beautiful smartphone and I must agree with that it stands out more compare to the normal Oppo A54. Currently the smartphones are not avaialble yet in the South African stores, but will be soon in this month of October. My best guess is to visit your nearest MTN store at the end of the month or I will provide feedback as soon they make an appearance.

      Thank you for taking the time to comment.

  3. Hello Burnheart,

    At the outset, thanks for the post with a good comparative study on the three models of Oppo. 

    I see the chipset in Oppo A54 5G is the best chipset out of the group. The four lenses camera of Oppo A54 5G is better than A54 and A53S. Sure I would like my phone to have a very good camera, as it is the most convenient way to take photos now a days. I have not used an actual camera ever since we started getting clear pictures from mobile phone. So, now I consider a good camera on my mobile phone a very important asset. Definitely,  I will choose A54 5G over the other two counterparts. 
    I read that Oppo A53s and the Opp A54 offer better RAM memory option than the Oppo A54 5G. How is that it has a lower memory? Normally A54 and A54 5G should be with the same memory with the added feature of 5G? It would be nice, if you can clarify the same, whenever possible.

    Even the charging time for Oppo A54 5G is less than the other two model, which is a negative point.
    So, do you feel that for the users who are not looking for the camera quality, and 5G network, Oppo A54 should be the choice and for the users who are looking for the camera quality and 5G network should opt for Oppo A54 5G.

    I think I will still choose Oppo A54 5G, by compromising a little on the RAM and the charging speed. 



    • Hi Ernest

      The Oppo A54 5G stands out the most in group due to the 5G network capabilities and the great camera. Many users always rely on having a good camera smartphone instead of owning a great camera seperate.

      I see you noticed the spec decrease in the Oppo A54 5G. What I can tell, it is actually a norm this year a lot. For example, the Samsung A32 5G specs also decreased compare to the normal Samsung A32. This is usually caused due to parts placed in the smartphones to give the 5G network capabilities cut certain parts out. Which is a big no for me. The Oppo A54 5G I believe is not the same case. They could at least have placed the 6GB RAM size option and made it work.

      Hopefully in the future 5G version smartphones, there will not be a decrease in specs as this will cause users not to go for these smartphones. Your summary is correct in terms which Oppo will fit for each user.

      After obtaining your Oppo A54 5G, please share you experience with the smartphone. We love to share users experience of any new smartphones. Thank you for taking the time to comment.
