Oppo K10 5G is the latest mid-range smartphone in the market and Oppo’s 5G variant of the K10 device. Offering it with 5G means you have a MediaTek Dimensity chipset but some features have taken a hit because of the network support. Oppo is offering the phone with Android 12 out of the box, and you also get it with fast charging support.
But since the market is already flooded with a myriad set of phones in this range, it makes sense to compare it with phones like the Samsung Galaxy M33 5G and the iQOO Z6 5G are also available at a similar price point.

Oppo K10 5G vs Samsung Galaxy M33 5G vs iQOO Z6 5G: Verdict
If you consider the specifications of all three phones, Samsung Galaxy M33 5G has the better features, but its price makes it less value for the money. iQOO Z6 5G has a 120Hz display, reliable 5G hardware, and efficient battery life. But it loses out with 18W fast charging, the slowest of the three phones mentioned here.
Oppo K10 5G gets an HD+ display, and only two cameras at the back, but you do get a 5000mAh battery built into a slim and stylish package. Performance-wise also it will keep you ticking. If budget is an issue, Oppo even has a 4GB RAM variant of the K10 5G which makes a lot of sense, but if you are planning to spend upwards of Rs 16,000 then we advise you to pick between Samsung and iQOO.
