The OPPO A5s is the number 1 smartphone in Southeast Asia from April to June 2019. This is according to a report from marketing research firm Canalys.

The ranking is based on the number of shipments. The OPPO A5s accounts for 2.6 million smartphone units shipped according to the firm’s estimates.

The Samsung Galaxy A10 and Redmi Note 7 from Xiaomi are closely competing for the second position while the OPPO A5s comfortably holds the number 1 spot. On the other hand, the Vivo Y91c is having trouble shaking the one-year-old OPPO A3s.

These results reflect the same pattern that I see with my monthly rankings of smartphones based on pageviews except for the Redmi Note 7.


What makes the OPPO A5s great?


A highlight of the OPPO A5s features. Note that it comes with 3GB RAM in the Philippines.

The OPPO A5s features a 6.2-inch HD+ display with waterdrop notch, 2.3GHz octa-core CPU, 3GB RAM, 13+2 Megapixel dual rear cameras, 8 Megapixel selfie camera, rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, 4G LTE connectivity, and a 4,230 mAh battery.

This set of features is offered in a sleek smartphone priced at PHP 6,990. That’s around USD 130, VND 3,000,000, THB 4,100, or SGD 185.

It’s a combination of good specs and features in a budget-friendly price.
