Reviews for the Oppo A73

Review – OPPO A73: Beautiful and sleek mid-range smartphone
Source: NLT English version
I think that’s a good price for what it offers. It charges a premium over the POCO M3, but it comes with justifiable upgrades like an AMOLED screen and faster charging, and also a very thin body with a beautiful orange-colored back.

74% Oppo A73 Review — Lightweight Performer?
Source: Pokde English version
For the price of RM899, it seems like a decent offering in terms of hardware. That being said, I would’ve liked it if they used a Snapdragon 665 instead of the Snapdragon 662 here. In my opinion, that should be the standard chipset for mid-range devices in today’s market. Performance-wise, it doesn’t stand out, and it definitely needs some polishing on that end.

70% Oppo A73 review: The budget smartphone that sets the bar for 2018

Behind the 18:9 display and facial ID login, the A73 is driven by the same core pitch found in its predecessors - albeit one that lands at a significantly lower price-point.

It is a very small display format for smartphones. You should by no means be mis-sighted and you will generally see very little on the screen and only have a small resolution available. In return, the device should be very small and handy.

76.33%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
