Oppo A7 Review
1. DESIGN, AND DISPLAY OF Oppo A7
The smartphone has a waterproof and modern smaller notch, the plastic body has a matte finish on the sides and a laminated back that not only looks good but also give you good feels. Especially the Glaring Gold variant of Oppo A7’s textured pattern looks very pretty when the light hits it at certain angles. This is a lightweight phone, it weighs only 168g and if we see its size, it is a quite big smartphone. A dual camera module, fingerprint sensor and LED flash are included at the back of Oppo A7. On Oppo A7 the face recognition works very well.
The Oppo A7 get the pre-applied scratch guard on the display, that did not feels good, especially when you swipe inwards from the sides. The Glaring Gold variant (our review unit) can pick fingerprints very easily, and its volume and button placed at the right place. The bezels around the display are fairly slim but the chin is quite thick and at the bottom, it had the 3.5mm headphone socket, microphone, and the Micro-USB port.
The Oppo A7 sports a 6.2-inch LCD good brightness screen with HD+ (1520×720) resolution. At this price, the 1520×720 resolution of Oppo A7 is quite disappointing, text appears and icons are a little soft.
A silicon case, Micro-USB, a 10W adapter, SIM eject tool are shipped in the box of Oppo A7. It’s SIM tray placed on the left side and that can accommodate two Nano-SIMs and an up to 256GB dedicated microSD card.
2. SPECIFICATIONS AND SOFTWARE OF Oppo A7
The phone has basic connectivity options and sensors. Connectivity options include USB-OTG, FM Radio, Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi (single -band 802.11 b/g/n), 4G with VoLTE support and sensors include light sensors, gyroscope, compass, accelerometer, and supports for the three navigation systems. It runs on ColorOS 5.2 Android 8.1 operating system. You can get the new features like ORoaming, which lets you subscribe to data packs when you travel abroad, and Smart Scan, that lets you shoot and convert text into an editable form or even have it translated to different languages (Hindi language support is present). You also get plenty of shortcuts and gestures too, including the Smart Sidebar, which is a tray with app shortcuts and can be accessed from within any app with a simple gesture.
The “news flashes” from the default browser and ads from Oppo’s app store, which keep appearing in the notification shade is a big annoyance, and after doing an experiment like managed to disable the POP-ups from the app store, you can note that these ware not able to stop the browser from sending notifications, despite opting out from the app’s settings section and also if you tried to “Force stop“ the app you can not get its solution.
The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 450 processor, this is not only an old SoC but it also a weaker SoC that we saw in the phones which were priced under Rs. 10,000. The Oppo A7 has 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage, it is important to includes that the RAM doesn’t really do much when it comes to raw performance. A score of 72,081 points and GFXbench’s T-Rex test gave just 33fps, in AnTuTu. We can easily expect that, as Oppo A7 is an Rs. 17,000 (nearly) ranged smartphone, the company can easily use the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 or MediaTek Helio P60 processor in Oppo A7.

3. CAMERAS, PERFORMANCE, AND BATTERY LIFE OF Oppo F7
Oppo A7’s cameras standard are super, it sports a 13-megapixel primary sensor with an f/2.2 aperture and a secondary 2-megapixel sensor with an f/2.4 aperture which support depth sensing. The phone supports some features which include, HDR and the HDR kicks in automatically that is a very good thing, colors are standard, Macros looked good, but autofocus is slow, it has no PDAF.
In good light, the phone can capture good shots. In low light camera do not work smoothly, the speed of focusing drops in low light and the narrow aperture is not able to produce a bright image. The colors appeared soft, details are weak in low light and the bad thing is you have to wait some seconds before camera locked focus or instead you would end up with a slightly mushy picture. You must get shooting modes like Panorama, Timelapse, and Stickers.
It records video at decanting quality 1080p but it has no electronic stabilization. In daylight, the 16-megapixel front shooter can shoot nice vivid shots, but in low light, the quality of picture turns average. The AI beatification mode can be quite aggressive to smoother your skin.
General apps and simple games are performed fair in Oppo A7, but these are not consistent and so smooth. it runs well at the time of playing games and streaming videos, heavier games like Shadowgun Legends and PUBG Mobile are playable good at the lowest settings.
The sound of the single speaker is tinny and unsatisfactory for videos and music but it offers you loud sounds, it took longer times to click screenshots and when you switching between apps you have to give some seconds to this smartphone, these are some difficulty which you may have to face in Oppo A7.
This smartphone offers you superb battery life, after regular using these features like watching videos, gaming and browsing the web. Oppo A7 comes with same 4,230mAh battery. The battery life test revealed that its charge lasted for 19 hours 43 minutes, the 10W adapter fully charges the battery in about two and a half hours, there is no fast charging.
