OPPO A12 Review
Source: Mobygyaan English version
The OPPO A12 resides under Rs 10,000 price category and in this range, a number of phones are available with better cameras, better display, and slightly better performance all running the latest Android 10 build. Take the last year’s Redmi Note 8 and realme 5 with quad cameras at this price. The recently launched realme Narzo 10a equips a faster CPU and triple cameras and it’s worth mentioning in this price segment.
