The top OPPO mobile phone plans

Advertisement

Away from the iPhone and Samsung Galaxy fanfare is a smaller consumer fanbase, dedicated to OPPO phones. Hailing from China, OPPO has been manufacturing mobile phones for some time, but it’s only in recent years that the brand has started to create a real buzz outside of Asia.

International success kicked off with the ‘R’ series in 2015; around this time, OPPO phones looked remarkably like Apple iPhones, which probably contributed to the brand’s appeal with Western customers. But unlike iPhones, OPPO devices use the Android operating system, and are generally much cheaper to buy outright.

OPPO’s R15 and Find X series offer stylish designs, powerful hardware, and AI-enhanced camera for optimal selfies and portraits. These handsets are ideal for the serious ‘phone-tographer’, offering incredible lighting and personalisation sensors that target everything from faces, to animals and sunsets. Right now, the R15, R15 Pro and OPPO A73 are available on plans from Vodafone, Optus and Woolworths Mobile: read on to find out which telco offers the right deal for you.

Vodafone plans for OPPO phones

Vodafone customers can choose from the excellent OPPO R15 Pro, or the more affordable OPPO A73. As Vodafone now separates its phone payment plans from its actual mobile service, you’ll get a lot more flexibility when it comes to deciding your repayment options: each phone can be paid off over 12, 24, or 36 months.

This means that you’re free to switch your Vodafone mobile plan around as needed, without impacting your OPPO repayments. You can pair your new device with any postpaid Red or Red Plus plans, all of which include unlimited standard national talk and text and great monthly data inclusions. Vodafone’s Red Plus plans also feature unlimited data at 1.5Mbps, making data overages a thing of the past.

Optus plans for OPPO phones

Optus currently offers the popular R15 Pro on its standard two-year postpaid plans. But if you decided to buy the R15 Pro on Optus’ $65, $85, $105, $125, or $145 plans, your phone payment will be $0 per month over your 24-month agreement – you’ll only need to pay your monthly plan pricing.

Otherwise, you can buy the R15 Pro on Optus’ cheapest $45 plan, and make a $10 monthly device payment – bringing your total monthly charge to $55 each month. But seeing as the $65 plan offers over twice as much data for only $10 more, it may be worth upgrading to the bigger plan if you can afford it.

All standard postpaid Optus plans are available with the OPPO R15, and include unlimited standard national calls and text, and entertainment extras such as data-free music streaming, Optus Sport, and National Geographic. Selected plans also feature unlimited international talk and text, and up to 6GB of overseas roaming data each month. Below are some of the postpaid plans Optus offers OPPO customers.

Woolworths Mobile plans for OPPO phones

Running on parts of Telstra’s 4G and 3G nationwide networks, Woolworths Mobile now offers customers a choice of the OPPO R15 Pro, the OPPO R15, or the OPPO A73 on 24 or 36-month payment plans. However, like Vodafone, Woolworths Mobile keeps your phone payment and mobile plan separate, so you can jump between SIM-only Woolworths plans without cancelling your device repayments.

You’ll pay basically the same in total for your choice of phone on both the 24 and 36-month options; the shorter the term, the higher your monthly payment, but either option means you’ll pay the same price for your phone overall. You can team your handset with any of Woolworths’ four Flexi Mobile plans, all which include unlimited standard national talk and text, international SMS allowances, and up to 30GB of banked rollover data.

OPPO phone plans with unlimited data

If you’re concerned about excess data charges, Vodafone now offers ‘unlimited’ data plans for postpaid customers. These two plans include an allowance of high-speed 4G data each month, plus unlimited slower data (capped to 1.5Mbps).

Vodafone customers can pick from the $60 Unlimited Red plan (with 40GB of fast data), or the $80 Unlimited Red plan (with 80GB at full speed). Both of these options frequently feature bonus data promotions, including double or triple data; these deals will depend on what’s on offer when you sign up.

Prepaid plans for OPPO phones

If prepaid is your preference, you can also pick up the OPPO A73 on both Vodafone and Optus’ prepaid service. You’ll need to buy the device outright, then select your prepaid plan; as of August 2018, the A73 is available for $299 upfront through Vodafone, and $259 at Optus (or four payments of $64.75).

OPPO phones: should you buy upfront?

With several buying options available for OPPO phones, it’s not always easy to figure out the best deal. However, as general rule of thumb:

Buying outright: This is a good option if you have the full device cost handy, and don’t want to be locked to a phone plan or telco. You’ll own your phone immediately and be free to move to any SIM-only plan you like, without needing to sign contracts.

Paying in instalments: This is still the most common way your average Australian buys a new phone, and means you’re spreading the total cost of your OPPO over 12, 24, or 36 months of payments. If you’re okay with sticking to a single plan or provider, and prefer a payment plan to shelling out hundreds (or thousands) or dollars at once, this is worth considering.

Bonuses and perks on OPPO plans

Depending on your choice of telco and plan, you can score some great extras and inclusions to go with your new OPPO phone.

  • Vodafone: Many Vodafone plans come with up to 20,000 Qantas Frequent Flyer points, plus monthly international calling extras – up to 3,300 minutes to call selected countries. Discounts are also available for students and current customers signing up for an additional plan, and bonus and double data offers are frequently available.
  • Optus: If you love mobile streaming, Optus includes data-free music, sports, and National Geographic on selected plans, plus the option to add data-free Netflix and Stan for $5 per month. Higher-end plans also include up to 6GB of international roaming data per month, and unlimited standard international talk and text.
  • Woolworths Mobile: All of Woolworths Mobile’s Flexi Plans include an international SMS allowance: 200 per month on the Xtra Small and Small plans, and unlimited on the Medium and Large options. If you’re looking for international calls, you can add one-off or monthly packs to your plan, including 300 minutes to 36 countries for $10, and unlimited to 10 selected countries (plus 300 minutes to 36 additional countries) for $15. Woolworths Rewards Card holders can also enjoy double points per $1 spent on their mobile plan.
