New releases are always welcome but we can’t underlook what’s already available. Opting for Oppo A57, one has to make a lot of sacrifices. The biggest sacrifice is settling for a lower display resolution which is an only HD one. If you are spending 26k on a phone, I think it’ll be wiser to spend some extra and buy phones like Huawei GR5 2017, Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime, Coolpad Cool1 dual or even OnePlus 2 that will rather be a better daily driver. That said, yes Oppo A57 comes with a good selfie unit but is taking selfies the only use for a smartphone? Well, the answer is “No”. So, if you are a selfie manic then only buying a phone like this can be considered a wiser decision or else just look around, there are many better devices available at same or near to price range.
