The OPPO F5 is a camera centric smartphone that recently launched in Kenya.

The F5 packs a number of impressive technical specifications with the highlight being its stunning 2K resolution display and the A.I beauty recognition technology.

That said, here is what the OPPO F5 has to offer.



Display Size: 6.0 inches

Display Type: IPS LCD

Screen Resolution: 1080 x 2160 pixels

Screen Resolution Density: 402 ppi

Screen Protection: None

The display is definitely the best feature of the OPPO F5. You get a 6.0-inch 1080 x 2160 pixels (2k) resolution display.


The 2K resolution makes the F5 stand out from the crowd since most of its rivals that have recently launched come with the standard 1080 x 1920 Pixels HD resolution.


Rear Camera: 16 MP

Secondary Camera: 20 MP

LED Flash: Yes

The camera has always been the prime feature of the OPPO F series. OPPO didn’t disappoint with the F5. You get a 16 MP rear camera for general photography and a 20 MP camera for your selfies.

The front camera uses artificial intelligence and facial optimization technology to enhance your selfies and provide the best version of you.


Dimensions: 156.5 x 76 x 7.5 mm

Weight: 152 g

The OPPO F5 has an awesome design.

You get a button-less sleek unibody design that looks really good.


Operating System: Android 7.1 (Nougat)

CPU: 2.5 Octa-core GHz Cortex-A53


Internal Memory: 32 GB

Micro SD: Yes, up to 256 GB


The OPPO F5 features a somehow powerful performance profile. You get a powerful 2.5 Octa-core GHz chipset coupled with 4GB RAM. This is good, but I feel that OPPO could have done better with maybe 6GB RAM, we have seen in the Infinix Zero 5 and Phantom 8.

The OPPO F5 runs Android 7.1 (Nougat) out of the box, which is good. Other than that, you get 32 GB of internal storage and a micro SD slot that can handle up to 256 GB of memory.

Battery and Extras

Battery Capacity: Li-Ion 3200 mAh

A 3200 mAh battery powers the OPPO F8. This is enough to last you a day or even two while on moderate usage.


Dual SIM

Fingerprint sensor


Rivals of the OPPO F5 include the TECNO Phantom 8 and Infinix Zero 5.

Price in Kenya

The OPPO F5 has a suggested retail price of Ksh. 31,990 in Kenya.

Be awesome and rate the OPPO F5.
