Chinese smart phone manufacturers have taken over all but the very high end of the smartphone industry in 2017.They have done this by taking advantage of nearly every single niche and by making mobile phones that are just all around good devices that are also great price.The A57 from one of China's biggest smartphone brands, Oppo, is the best example of both of these tendencies.The Oppo A57 is a superbly made smartphone with a design that is quite evidently inspired by the iPhone 6 and 7. It is an all-metal bodied smartphone with a screen to body proportion that is even better than the Apple units that have inspired it.
Superb front camera
So what is the specific niche market that Oppo is trying to serve to with the A57,everyone ask? The answer is placed in the camera. Not in the 13 megapixel device that lies at the back of the phone.However,since we are talking about the rear camera of the A57, let's simply give Oppo some congrats for that simple fact that the rear of the phone is absolutely smooth, with no camera obstruct. What this implies is that you will not have to resort to Oppo A57 cases and masks to get a smartphone that you can rest flat on a desk. However,it is the front camera of the A57 that is the spotlight of the unit. The selfie camera,like Oppo calls it, is an incredible 16 megapixels! That's correct,the front facing camera on the A57 in fact,has a higher pixel count than the rear facing unit on the smartphone.
