Positioning and price

The cost of OPPO A58 in the markets starts at 15 thousand rubles, which puts the device in the mid-budget segment, which traditionally has the most intense competition. The manufacturer’s line also includes the A78 and A38 models, so even in its own series it is located exactly in the center, i.e. The device was conceived at the intersection of the most balanced solutions.

The device is delivered together with a charging unit, a cable, a clip for removing the SIM card and the mandatory warranty documents and instructions. A protective film was glued on the screen from the factory, but a cover was not put on the box, which is very frustrating, especially considering that even some ultra-cheap devices for 6,500 rubles manage to reach users with good quality. bumper.

The model is available in two colors: black and light green. The second option uses a “flowing silk” design solution: the back cover is covered with longitudinal lines that shimmer in the light. We tested a model in a dark version; It doesn’t have that much beauty. Smart black looks much more modest, although for supporters of rigor in appearance this color is even more suitable than green. The surface of the back cover has a non-uniform grain, which not only looks aesthetically pleasing, but also makes the device less slippery. The body and the frame around the perimeter are made of dense and hard plastic. The assembly is of high quality: nothing creaks or plays.

The physical buttons are located on the right side.

On the left there is a tray for two SIMs and a memory card.

At the bottom there is a Type-C charging port, a 3.5 jack, a microphone and a speaker grill.

The device has an IPS matrix with a large diagonal of 6.72 inches, FHD+ resolution and a maximum brightness of 680 nits. The performance is good, at the top center there is a stylish cutout for the front camera. The only thing that’s a little confusing is the 60Hz refresh rate. Fans of high Hz displays may experience a lack of “smoothness.”


The smartphone is powered by MediaTek’s Helio G85 processor – it is a super reliable and proven chip that has stood the test of time. There are two memory configurations: 6/128 and 8/256 GB. With such features, the device is capable of solving any problem, from communication to the operation of any game; the same tanks can be driven here with medium graphics settings.

Battery charging

The OPPO A58 has a 5000 mAh battery, a standard volume by modern standards. With fast charging included with patented 33W SUPERVOOC technology, the battery capacity is recharged to half in just 30 minutes; This is convenient in a scenario where you need to go somewhere urgently and the phone is low on charge.


The presence of a pair of stereo speakers is one of the distinctive features of the model, something that is not so common in its price range. The sound extracted from them is not only clear, but also quite loud: with the Ultra Volume function, the speakers can be turned up to 200% volume, and in headphones this figure can be increased even further, up to 300 %. Here it is worth remembering the possibility of connecting headphones via cable; This turns out to be a good affordable option for music lovers.

The optical assembly consists of two sensors: a 50-megapixel main sensor and a 2-megapixel portrait sensor.

The camera takes pictures in full compliance with its class: most of the work is done by AI algorithms, and in this particular model they cope with the task very well.

But only if there is enough light in the frame, the photographs in this case turn out to be clear, detailed, saturated and with natural color reproduction. In twilight and darkness, things are expected to get worse: the image begins to “wash out”, spots appear, and “artifacts” appear.

The maximum video recording resolution is 1080p at 30 fps.


I will not tire of repeating that BBK subsidiary brands produce the best accessories for Android. This OPPO has ColorOS 13 installed: it is almost not full of third-party utilities and those that are pre-installed can qualitatively improve the user experience. For example, in the native dialer it is possible to adjust voice call recordings: save all conversations, only with individual subscribers, groups, etc.

You can also use common tools to delete data from the photos you are going to share, remove geotags, shooting time, etc. The shell runs smoothly and does not slow down – pure beauty.

Good bonuses

More positive things: an NFC chip for contactless payments, splash protection according to the international standard IPX4, which, of course, is largely marketing, but on the other hand, at least it won’t be scary to get caught in the rain. with a smartphone. It can also be unlocked with a fingerprint on the power button and using your face; Both methods work clearly and perfectly.

What is there to complain about?

Of all the above, the easiest to follow is a 60 Hz display. If there were at least 90 here, questions on this topic would not arise. On the other hand, I pay attention to such things, since many devices pass through my hands: it is easy for me and I have something to compare with. A large audience does not care about this feature at all if YouTube videos play in Full HD without slowdowns and “Tanks” drive and record without freezing.

We can also note that video recording is only done in 1080p; Among competitors you can find solutions with 2K recording.

Well, no cover is included; You will have to buy it separately, because the case and the edges of the screen do not have shockproof or “anti-scratch” properties.

Of course, all of the above indirectly relates to the smartphone itself and the experience of using it; It’s just finicky and users will perceive it very differently depending on their expectations and usage scenarios.


Now there is a huge variety of options on the Russian smartphone market – you can choose an option for almost any request, depending on your own wishes and financial capabilities. There are bright and flashy models, a kind of weekend ceremonial devices, there are positions with incredible kits, and the OPPO A58 in this row, at first glance, is difficult to stand out in any way. But upon closer examination, it becomes clear that this is a hard-working device, a real workhorse that will ideally cope with the role of the main everyday smartphone. None of its features are standout value, but together they balance each other well, resulting in one of the best value for money offerings.
