Elevating Product Quality for Sustainability

At the heart of OPPO’s sustainability strategy lies an unwavering commitment to product quality. At OPPO’s QE reliability lab, products undergo extensive testing that surpasses industry standards, aiming to provide not just solid device longevity but impeccable durability.

These tests include simulations of years of use, replicating typical damage scenarios such as drops in harsh environments with extreme heat, humidity, or low temperatures, along with rigorous evaluations of water resistance, wear resistance, and more. Ensuring a warranty period of 24 months.

The quality check is not just limited to the build quality of OPPO’s products, but also in incorporated longevity into the product design itself. Debuted in 2022, OPPO’s Battery Health Engine, has been integrated into dozens of its smartphones. This technology ensures that the battery maintains at least 80% of its capacity even after four years of use, ensuring that these devices deliver the best for each user in the long run and also remarkable reduce e-waste.

This commitment to transparency and accountability reinforces OPPO’s dedication and commitment to sustainable practices.
