Oppo A77 5G smartphone review - High price, low resolution

Passionless. The Oppo A77 5G pleases with its elegant casing. In terms of features it looks solid, but also a bit uninspired. Is that enough to convince for a higher price?

Case and features - Angular and splash-proof

With its angular casing, the Oppo A77 5G looks modern and chic. The color options are a light blue and black, both with a matte shimmering back and a metal-look frame. The casing is made of plastic overall, but it is solidly manufactured and does not creak when twisted.

Oppo even had its smartphone certified to IPX4. However, you should not take your phone diving with you, because it is only protected against splash water.

There are two storage variants of the Oppo A77 5G:

  • 64 GB mass storage / 4 GB RAM: 279 Euros (~$275) manufacturer's price
  • 128 GB mass storage / 6 GB RAM: 329 Euros (~$324) manufacturer's price

You can insert two SIM cards into the phone at the same time, but you have to decide whether you want to use a second SIM or a microSD for memory expansion, since they share a slot. The card reader does not transfer data very quickly, but it is still within the range of the comparison devices.

Communication, software and operation - Stable WLAN on the Oppo phone

The Oppo A77 5G is, as the name suggests, a 5G phone that only supports sub-6 GHz frequencies. The frequency selection is decent, but if taking a trip, you still have to see whether you can use the 4G or 5G network in the destination country.

WiFi 5 is the fastest WLAN standard that Oppo's smartphone supports. Thus, it achieves stable speeds around 350 MBit/s, which is common for this class.

Oppo installs its own UI ColorOS, which is based on Android 12. The security patches are from September 2022 and thus still fairly up-to-date at the time of testing. A few advertising apps are preinstalled.

The slightly recessed and elongated standby button already reveals that the fingerprint sensor is also hidden here. It works quite reliably, but it could be felt more clearly. Unlocking via face recognition also works well. However, the quick setup suggests that not much image data is collected here and that the function can be tricked quite easily.

Cameras - Actually only one optics

Recording front camera
Recording front camera

Although the Oppo A77 5G shows two large camera circles on the back, it actually only hides one camera that you can really use: Besides the main camera with 48 megapixels, there is namely only a support lens that does not take its own photos.

The main camera usually combines 4 pixels each to get more light-sensitive pixels, so it usually takes 12-megapixel photos. The pictures look quite well exposed and also sufficiently detailed for a mid-range camera.

In low light and high contrasts, the brightening in dark areas succeeds on average with quite strong image noise. The lab shows that the subject can still be guessed at an illumination of 1 lux, but details are no longer visible.

Videos can be recorded in 1080p with 30 fps at most, which is also common in the price range. Brightness adjustment and autofocus work quite well, but the latter does not manage without pumping. The picture quality is decent.

An 8-megapixel camera is found on the front. It takes decent selfies, but you should not look at the pictures in too much detail, otherwise you will notice the rather coarse structures and little detail in dark areas.

Display - More pixels would have been nice

Subpixel image
Subpixel image

Oppo installs a bright screen with a decent contrast ratio in its phone, but unfortunately there is a catch: The resolution is only 720p, which is much lower than the Full HD screens of most similarly priced smartphones. This leads to a blurrier display and is also visible in a direct comparison.

In our measurements, the screen shows a slight bluish cast, but it manages without PWM, so everyone can use the Oppo A77 5G without headaches.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
18 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 11 ms rise
↘ 7 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 29 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (22.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
34 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 18 ms rise
↘ 16 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 35 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (35.8 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19454 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance, emissions and battery life - Typical performance, good runtime

The MediaTek Dimensity 810 is a mid-range SoC and thus fits well with the Oppo A77 5G. The processor does not quite reach the performance of similarly priced smartphones, but the phone can keep up in the graphics area. The results are even quite good in the on-screen benchmarks, which is due to the 720p resolution placing fewer demands on the graphics unit.

It quickly becomes apparent that there are hardly any performance reserves in everyday use: The computing power is sufficient for simple tasks, but the Oppo A77 5G is pushed to its limits when you even want to adjust the volume during demanding apps. The installed UFS 2.2 memory transfers data quite quickly.

The maximum temperature of 43 °C (109.4  °F) under longer load is quite noticeable, but not yet unpleasant. Moreover, the SoC does not throttle even under permanent load.

The mono speaker on the bottom edge sounds a bit thin and quite treble-heavy, which is amplified when you increase the volume beyond the maximum and activate the "Ultra Volume Mode". The volume is then quite OK, but music sounds unpleasantly glaring in the ears. External audio devices can be connected via a 3.5 mm jack and Bluetooth. Numerous aptX codecs are also available for the wireless connection.

With its 5,000 mAh battery, the Oppo A77 5G is on par with comparable smartphones. It also gets good runtimes out of the battery with 17:12 hours. The maximum charging power via the included charger is 33 watts. It takes just under 2 hours until the battery is back to 100% when the battery is completely empty.

In review: Oppo A77 5G. Test device provided by:
cyberport.com

The Oppo A77 5G does its job: It can keep up with similarly priced smartphones in most areas and hardly has any real weaknesses apart from the low-resolution screen and the meager speaker. At the same time, you should not expect too much passion: The Oppo A77 5G is a solid worker without big ambitions to be something special.

Only the software and the angular design show a bit of originality. Oppo has even afforded an IP certification, but that is probably more for marketing purposes since it is only about protection against splash water.

If you are looking for a stylish phone with stable Wi-Fi, modern Bluetooth and good runtimes, you can give the Oppo A77 5G a chance. However, you should also keep the slightly higher prices in mind compared to the storage configuration and look for good offers

The Oppo A77 5G is a solid mid-range phone in many areas, but you have to cope with the higher price and the low-resolution screen.

If you are looking for alternatives, you will get the cheaper Xiaomi Poco M4 Pro 5G, a phone with an even longer battery life and even stereo speakers. If you like ColorOS, you can also look at the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G which offers a bit more performance and a higher-resolution display.

Price and availability

The Oppo A77 5G is available on the Internet from many retailers in both memory versions.

You should compare the prices: The version with 64 GB mass storage costs at our lender cyberport.de at the time of testing, but is already available at amazon.de for a favorable 239 Euros (~$236).

The 128 GB variant is available at cyberport.de for 322 Euro (~$318), at amazon.de it costs 276 Euro (~$272).
