The midrange 5.2-inch HD, 3GB RAM OPPO A57 has a 16MP selfie camera, just like its pricier siblings – the OPPO F3 and F3 Plus. While it can’t match the F3 line up in wide angle groufies (it has no secondary wide angle front camera), the A57 can do bokeh selfies, comes with on-screen flash for low light selfie needs, has 3 dedicated slots (for 2 SIM cards and 1 micro SD card) and its tandem of HD display plus 2900 mAh battery make for good battery stamina. And then there’s that P11990 price tag.

As a midrange selfie phone, the A57 seems to be “sandwiched” in between the Vivo V5 and the Vivo V5 Lite, and seems poised to go against the Huawei GR5 2017 (which has a better Full HD screen, has dual rear cameras for bokeh, but only has an 8MP selfie camera).
