Introduction and Camera
The Oppo A1 is a mid-range smartphone that features a metal unibody design that is topped with rounded edges which ensure better handling. At the back, the device sports a rear-mounted fingerprint reader which can be used for unlocking the smartphone. Also, the device features facial recognition which allows users to unlock the device by just looking at the screen.
The smartphone hosts a regular 13-megapixel rear sensor and an 8-megapixel front-facing shooter. While the primary sensor is ideal for shooting images and videos in the dark courtesy an LED flash, the frontal imaging piece can be used for video calling and capturing selfies.
Display and Battery
The Oppo A1 flaunts a 5.7-inch HD+ IPS display which is good for gaming or watching videos. The screen is also paired with decent viewing angles. Sadly, there isn’t any Corning Gorilla Glass protection.
The smartphone is fuelled by a non-removable Li-Ion 3,180mAh battery which is expected to last throughout the day for a moderate user.
Performance and Connectivity
Under the hood, lies an octa-core Snapdragon chipset which is coupled with 4GB of RAM that ensures a flawless smartphone experience besides aiding lag-free multitasking. Also, the Oppo A1 has a gaming acceleration mode that allows the smartphone to optimise memory usage even when ten games are simultaneously running in the background.
For connectivity, there are options like 4G, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, and a microUSB 2.0 port. Aso, one gets dual SIM support along with the Oppo A1.
Platform and Storage
In terms of software, the smartphone runs the company’s own Color OS wrapped under Android 7.1 Nougat.
For storing apps, images, videos, music, and other data, the handset is equipped with an onboard storage space of 64GB which can be expanded using a microSD card up to 128GB.
