Author’s Opinion

The Oppo A7 is a mid-range device that comes with decent features. It has a premium looking body which features a bezel-less display. The cameras of the device are decent and the battery capacity is huge, which can provide immense power backup. On the other hand, it lacks in many things like no Full HD+ display support which is must in this price range.

Talking about the competition in this price range, the real competitors of this smartphone are Redmi Note 6 ProRealme 2 Pro, Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1, Honor 8X and Nokia 6.1 Plus.

For Oppo, the competition and users opinion doesn’t matter, they are on another level. Like Oppo A7, the company is continuously launching many smartphones at very high prices and offering less than expected. Only HD display and Snapdragon 450 are just not acceptable at this price.

Overall, We don’t recommend Oppo A7 to anyone. However, at the time of writing this article, our recommendation at this price will be Realme 2 Pro.

Note: These are my initial impressions of the smartphone. For Full Flash Review, Stay tuned with our Instagram Page.
