Important weakness and goodness from OPPO A7. This is Android smartphone which have 6.2 inches LCD screen with small notch in the middle of the top, it is available for front camera which have 16 megapixel for selfie photography and it does not have LED flash for front camera. To make this phone still comfort to hold with one hand or keep in the pocket, the screen aspect ratio already have 19:9 dimension with HD+ 720 x 1520 pixels resolutions. 

 

Other Pros and Cons summary of OPPO A7

  • This is mid end smartphone, have dual lens at main camera, which work as main lens and deep of field / bokeh lens effect. Main camera at back side body use 13 megapixel with f/2.2 and second lens use 2 megapixel with aperture number f/2.4. Actually this aperture still can take good pictures at enough light situations, but when taking at low light room, then we have to use flash for helping get better light. 
  • OPPO A7 camera have some important features like AI Beauty Technology for give better shot at portrait pictures and image Stabilization Technology to make better hand shake reduction when taking pictures or record the video.
  • OPPO A7 use 6.2 inches LCD waterdrop screen. This phone have full screen with very small bezel around the screen. To make the screen work more stronger, it is already protected by Corning Gorilla Glass, but the drawbacks of the protections still use previous technology Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
  • OPPO A7 use Qualcomm SDM450 Snapdragon 450 processor to make it sufficient work for some standard applications. For playing games, OPPO A7 already have Adreno 506 GPU (graphic processor unit). We have to know that some heavy games will work not as smooth as playing at high end GPU processor.
  • Demerit of OPPO A7 still use Android Oreo as factory default applications. We still do not have any information about the availability of Android Pie firmware upgrade for OPPO A7. We have to wait for further information.
  • OPPO A7 does not have NFC for data transfer. But we still can transfer some files using wifi direct file transfer or bluetooth or using data cable. 
  • The USB port still use MicroUSB. Some users maybe does not get any problems with this port, because most of us still have old Android data cable for charging or data transfer.
  • OPPO A7 use Li-Ion 4230 mAh battery battery capacity. For our own opinion, this is big batter capacity and some users maybe can use this phone for 2 days without need to recharge. Yes, the battery is non removable like other Oppo Android smartphone.
