Oppo A77 Malaysia Review – A Budget-Friendly Selfie Phone with Commendable Features
Oppo phones always pack powerful hardware so they are able to compete with smartphones that are priced higher than they are. The tradition is continued on the Oppo A77 as it has a flurry of features that make it a commendable smartphone to consider if you are on a tight budget.
Design and Build
There should be no complaints when it comes to the design of the Oppo A77 as it makes the phone feel more flagship than affordable. Although it is marketed under the budget-friendly range, the A77 has a metal unibody unlike many of its counterparts in the same price range that has a creaky plastic body. This results in the phone having a premium look and feel. The phone also has rounded corners and chamfered edges that makes it comfortable to hold. Oppo is also including a silicone case in the box together with the A77 to provide extra protection to the phone.
The A77 is fitted with a 5.5-inch Full HD screen with 401ppi that gives off crisp and clear image quality. The IPS LCD panel is vivid and is large enough for any media. The brightness is also good enough for the phone to be used externally under direct sunlight without much problems.
What keeps the Oppo A77 running is a Cortex A53 octa-core processor that functions around 1.5GHz with 4GB worth of RAM. The smartphone comes with 64GB internal storage out of the box, but you can upgrade it to 256GB via MicroSD. This combination of specs enables the phone to handle multitasking easily without lagging. Games such as Angry Birds and Pokemon Go can be played without any reduction of frame rates.
The camera is supposedly the highlight of the A77 and it lives up to expectations. The smartphone sports a 13MP megapixel at the back and a front-facing 16MP selfie camera. The cameras are quick to start and easy to handle. The cameras on the Oppo A77 take sharp and detailed images, even in low-light conditions.
Another key highlight of the A77 is its battery life. The A77 also houses a 3,200mAh battery which easily lasts through the full day on a single charge, even with heavy usage. The phone also has a VOOC fast charger that charges the smartphone up to 75% in merely 30 minutes, perfect for getting enough juice into the phone before rushing out of the door
