Oppo A72 review: Design and key features

 so here we have it the oppo a72 and as you can see this is a lovely colorful little number this is the Aurora purple version although you can grab it in Twilight black if you prefer something a bit more sedate and it does feel like these colours are used an awful lot on budget spot for the sort of turquoise blue and of course purple and all of that but you know it's nice to have something a bit more vivid a bit more vibrant something that stands out and there's very little official information from what Paul on what the Year 72 is actually constructed from but it so he feels like a plastic heads there there's a bit of flex in the backend when you apply pressure right there but not to a troublesome degree it's only feels reasonably solidly constructed and there on the front the display of the oppo a72 is actually already covered in a pre installed screen protector so that should help to just save it from a little scratches and scuffs and everything when you use in it so definitely no real shocks or surprises as far as the design of the Opera a sub d2 goes it's a 6.5 inch base so you get pretty much average for 20 when Z got a decent half to around 200 grams there is an edge mounted fingerprint sensor on side of the air oppo a 72 as well which is definitely making a bit of a comeback in 2020 great to see I'm a big fan of them so happy for that let's just give it a bit of a poke now and see if we've got any juice in the tank yes we do all right so I'm gonna get this bad boy all set up and then we'll take a proper full-on tour of the hardware and software oh and great news when you're sticking a SIM card in as well because you do have full dual sim support as you can see there as well as space for micro SD memory card to expand the 128 gigs of on-board storage hazhar alrighty.

Oppo A72 review: Software and features

 so the oppo a 72 is all said ready for action I've downloaded all of my apps we got here is of course version 10 of Android we've got a bit color OS 7.1 slapped on top there as well type all kinds of bonus features and other extra bits so it's basically the same setup as every other app or smartphone on there you've got all the great Android bits such as of course good bit of dock mode action dive into convenience tools got a navigation buttons we can add a bit of a swipe navigation as well as get rid of that pesky navigation bar because you got Lords are born as colorist features on there as well and fortunate muslimah sort of heads in a wee bit and this rather cluttered and messy Settings menu but for instance you've got full fierson locked to supplement the roller excellent Edgemont of fingerprint sensors you can see there it's nice and nippy and responsive certainly seems to be very dependable so far but for instance if you've got mucky hands we won't gloves or something you just get their face and lock on the door and as you can see that nice and Swift as well and the good news is that all of the features you would expect to find even on a 200-pound --is-- priced smartphone are present and correct like NFC few contacts payments and a go back dual band Wi-Fi support - 

Oppo A72 review: Display and audio

now let's check out that 6.5 inch full HD display it's an IPS panel of course and it looks pretty damn stunning to be fair for a budget display colors looking quite natural there's a reasonable contrast for an IPS panel as well viewing angles and everything certainly fine in a laptop brightness it should be absolutely fine for outdoors use as well so they not want the most vibrant panels around but it's pretty common for a budget IPS does face then generally those vivid hues don't exactly shine through but you know for a bit of Netflix you just want to kick back with the movie something like that it will do the job and it's just a dinky we punch old camera effort here in the the top corner as well as very unintrusive barely gets in on the action at all and I've crushing block it out as well in the display Sens if you do find it particularly offensive and likely I'll put a 9 20 20 before it it's great to see the oppo a72 has a dual stereo speaker set up here as well quite rare at the total budget price point and even quite a lot of premium smartphones don't rock that so let's just check it on out boost the volume 5.3 makes do with a pretty perfunctory design at this budget price point that's clearly not much cash to go on frills or flair of any kind so show the output is a bit tinny on those top volumes again there's a bunch of blonde what you expect but so this seems like it would be loud enough to cut through a lot of background climb if you're working in a noisy kitchen something like that should be able to you know have it propped up watching a video or something like that you've also got some control over the audio output as well you've got what is termed here real sound technology so basically similar to the the smart dolby output as you can see they can automatically adjust depending on whether you're kicking back with a thick bus new way through a game whatever and you can also manually set it to whatever you want as well you got to put four high res audio you can stream of a Bluetooth 5.0 and of course you've got that bottom mounted headphone jack as well great stuff.

Oppo A72 review: Performance and battery life

 now power in the oppo a 72 is qualcomm snapdragon 616 chipset backs by 4 gigs of ram you'll find this on lots of other budget laws out there including the likes the Nokia 5.3 some more expensive stuff as well like the Sony Xperia 10 Mach 2 and a father this is absolutely fine for you everyday it shenanigans you know you can split screen mode with apps all kinds of stuff if you're into your benchmark and there's the results I got for me a pretty standard for the snapdragon 665 chipset should be able to play the latest games like Call of Duty and pub G Mobile no problem as well though on the sort of lords medium detail settings and you gamers of course have the game space app on board as well which busy just adds a whole bunch of tools oh I forgot to turn that volume down didn't I yeah this adds a whole heap of game related features surfaces you give the performance a little boost if you need to that you can block notifications mid game so you're not getting disturbed all kinds of stuff yeah stay tuned for my full in-depth oppo a 72 review to see if it really does handle that gaming well so you definitely expect a respectable performance from the SMD 2 but one the other definite highlights is the five thousand milliamp battery packed inside a match for the likes the Moto G 8 power and a couple of other budget handsets plus should easily provide a full day of intensive use probably give you the best pot of two days of use as well as long as you don't absolutely hammer the crap out of it and when it is time to power up the oppo a72 as well it's got 18 watt fast charging on there so I'm not exactly gonna blow your box off or anything like that but respectable enough.

Oppo A72 review: Cameras

 so let's finish up as always by taking a look at the camera tech and slept on the back end of the Opera SMT to is a coordinate lens arrangement getting pretty fashionable these days even for budget-friendly smartphones and what you have here is a 48 megapixel primary lens and it megapixel ultra wide-angle lens and then dual 2 megapixel portrait lenses so it's actually a fairly similar camera set up to the OP offline x2 light which is of course a bit more pricey so nice and quick and easy to take your photos you've got the usual toggles to play with including HDR and a good bit of the dazzle color if you want to just make those punchy colors just that little bit more punchy I tend to leave that off because it tends to overdo things then you've got the various filters you can play around with as well if you want to swap to good old portrait mode of course you've got those dual portrait lenses on the back there that just helps to add a bit of depth while also giving you a bit of filter effect action too so for instance you can shoot a sexy bit of black-and-white portrait if you want to get all 1930s you've got various other modes that you can play around with as well including of course the obligatory sticker mods it's a good one if you want to make yourself look old Purdy and you've also got a proper full-on pro mode as well if you want to mess around with the lights of the ISO levels the white balance get a very precise kind of shot from a sports like 8 megapixel ultra wide-angle lens just a quick tap here and voila doesn't look like the colors are quite as rich with that one but again that's quite a common symptom of ultra wide-angle lenses in budget blows you can also digitally zoom nice and easy like so apparently bibby Cymbeline here is food according to the AI not so sure about that pretty sure this guy's at the top of the food chain and if you want to shoot video you can do that up to 4k resolution as well as just dive down here we've got video resolutions in 1080p by default but as you can see they even switch it up to 4k and then last up flip around you got a 16 megapixel front-facing selfie cam with a neat little a light band effect as you can see when you swap to it and hopefully should prove up so you find if your everyday selfies you've got a post pulled portrait snaps and all of that shenanigans as well if you like it and it's what me or do I just get sexier in every video or we.
