Reviews for the Oppo A16s

77% Oppo A16s smartphone review - Inexpensive endurance runner with NFC | Notebookcheck
The Oppo A16s is an inexpensive entry-level smartphone that wants to convince with its 5,000 mAh strong battery, an eye-friendly display and last but not least a triple camera. How the Oppo smartphone performs for less than 180 Euros (~$208) can be read in the review.
Oppo A16s 5G Camera review: Basic shooter with no ultrawide
Source: DxOMark English
The Oppo A16s is one of the most affordable devices in the Chinese manufacturer’s lineup, and it offers some good specs for the money. It is built around a massive 5000mAh battery, but the MediaTek Helio G35 chipset, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of (expandable) storage, and a 6.52-inch display with HD+ resolution are all adequate for the price point, too. The camera setup on the other hand is a comparatively simple affair. The Oppo comes with a triple-cam but no tele or ultra-wide lenses. Instead the 13 MP primary camera is flanked by a 2 MP monochrome unit and a dedicated macro camera. Video can be recorded at 1080p or 720p resolutions at 30 frames per second. With a DXOMARK Camera score of 80, the Oppo A16s lags quite a lot behind the best devices in the Essential segment, such as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10S or Samsung Galaxy A12, and while it looks like a good option for users who value a big battery, mobile photographers on a budget can find better options elsewhere.
