Build Quality/Design

At first glance, the OPPO A95 is eye-catching. The fit and finish are surprisingly well polished. It looks like a more expensive phone. 

The front is a glass panel with a pre-installed screen protector. Around the phone are slim top and side bezels and a thick chin bezel. The inner frame is made of polycarbonate with a shiny finish while the back panel is made of glasstic but with a textured finish. This textured finish makes the phone less slippery and also dramatically reduces the fingerprint smudges on the back. The back panel and the inner frame curve which also makes the phone easier to hold.

As of the moment


The OPPO A95 looks good and has an interesting spec sheet but it is priced at PHP 15,999. Competition in this price range is fierce. 

Out of the box, the phone looks and feels great but hopefully, it performs better in real life to justify the price tag.
