OPPO tries to offer a phone that fits every budget, which is why it has announced the latest addition to its A Series line up – the A54s priced at a sharp $299.

The large 6.52-inch Eye Care screen allows users to stream, share and capture life’s memorable moments, albeit with only a medium level resolution 720 x 1600 (269ppi). On the plus side there’s plenty of storage at 128GB to store your photos, videos and data.

OPPO Australia’s Managing Director, Michael Tran said:

“The OPPO A54s is the ultimate high-performance accessory that punches above its weight. With high-end triple cameras to capture memories on the go, large display and 5000mAh battery, the new addition to our A Series is sure to complement the daily lives of many users.”

At this price point the camera will be OK for social media photos but not that great for low light or fast moving objects. The A54s has a 50MP main camera with 2PM depth (Bokeh) and 2MP macro camera as well as an 8MP front camera for selfies.

The 5000mAh battery ensures the A54s will continuously deliver high-performance all day long. Fully charged it’s supposed to be capable of 34 hours of call time, or 21 hours of video streaming playback.

Once the day draws to a close, the A54s continues working. Sophisticated optimisation technology effectively reduces battery consumption when the phone is idle on a bedside table at night. Activating Super Night time Standby in the evening offers 8 hours of capacity, while only consuming 1.32% power, so the handset is ready to go as soon as day breaks.

Cheap phones don’t have to be super heavy or thick. The A54s has a thickness of only 8.40mm and weighs just 190g. A54s also makes access easy while keeping data secure, with the side fingerprint scanner and face unlock.

The A54s is available in two colour options: Crystal Black and Pearl Blue from 15th November at JB Hi-Fi, The Good Guys, Officeworks and Australia Post.

Mediatek P35 chip makes this an absolute no-way purchase. I know there is a chip shortage at the moment but this slow laggy chip ruins an otherwise attractive package.
