OPPO has been killing it with its high-end and midrange releases, and today we’ll do a quick rundown on the brand’s latest offering in the lower end of the market which is the OPPO A7. Let’s take a look at what this phone has to offer aside from its magnificent design.
Design & Construction
OPPO has worked tirelessly to give users an aesthetically pleasing device at every angle. Thanks to the 3D thermal bent sheet on its rear, the OPPO A7 is light, thin, and comfortable to hold. The frosted detail of OPPO A7’s middle frame makes an elegant contrast with its grain textured back cover. The users will have a tough decision in choosing between the color options, Glaring Gold and Glaze Blue. Both colors are very low-key stylish and subtly shift in response to light. There is no wonder once again why OPPO is on top in smartphone aesthetics.
The OPPO A7 has a 6.2” HD+ 1520 x 720 pixel LCD IPS Display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. The A7 adopted the waterdrop-shaped notch which houses its front camera. And with its Corning Gorilla Glass make, the screen provides great resistance to damages while still providing sensitive and extremely accurate responses.
OPPO’s devices always produce the best portraits and selfies because their cameras are engineered based on the quality of DSLR cameras. The 16MP front camera produces outstanding selfies with its f/2.0 aperture and breathtaking photos with its AI Beautification technology with its 13+2MP dual rear cameras. The OPPO A7 now also has AR stickers customized to adapt with the user’s movements for more fun photos!
Performance & Battery
The device has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 as its processor with an Adreno 506 GPU. The A7 has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, expandable by up to 256GB via microSD.
The A7 houses its user-favorite 4,230mAh battery for longer life and better overall experience. The AI battery management aids in freezing inactive apps and reducing excess caching to save more power. Also available in this model is the ColorOS 5.2, a smart and efficient assistant based on Android 8.1 Oreo.
Through the “Smart Bar” feature, the A7 can support vertical full-screen multitasking. The device also has features like quick file sharing, screen recording, screenshots, and many other shortcuts.
Combining entry-level price tag and mid-range specs, the A7 is perfect for those who don’t expect a lot with their smartphones. The device could keep up with basic features like multitasking, communication, selfies, and multimedia, but it might have a hard time keeping up with users whose taxing lifestyles require a lot more.
The OPPO A7 is now available in authorized stores nationwide, for Php 13,990.
