Reviews for the Oppo A94 5G

82.1% Oppo A94 5G smartphone in review: 5G Android phone for under 400 Euros | Notebookcheck
With the A94 5G, Oppo launches an appealing smartphone with good features and long battery life in the mid-range. Our review reveals what sets this phone apart from numerous other 5G smartphones.
70% OPPO A94 5G – Get it from Telstra (review)
Source: Gadgetguy English
Two of the more noteworthy things about the $599 OPPO A94 5G smartphone is its nice, bright, daylight readable 6.43″ FHD HDR AMOLED screen and its 30W VOOC Flash Charge battery. Yes, it is a given that it has OPPO’s renowned camera prowess, its 360° 4/5G antenna system and all the usual OPPO goodies. It is only available from Telstra. You can buy it outright for $599 or on 12/24months for $49.91/24.95 per month. The Catch 22 is that Telstra’s lowest cost 5G plan is $65/80GB, and Telstra’s 5G coverage is patchy at best, so please check if you can get 5G before you commit. Overall it is a good phone available on a plan. If you don’t need 5G or want to buy outright, we will look at alternatives later. Note there is no dual sim retail version of this phone – if you see any, they are grey market.

Oppo A94 5G Battery review: Good discharge efficiency
Source: DxOMark English
With the exception of certain specific use cases such as 3G calling and music streaming, the Oppo A94 5G has considerably better discharge efficiency than its rivals. Its charging time is good, and while it doesn’t reach the highest spot for autonomy, the Oppo device’s duration of 2 days and 10 hours with moderate use seats it comfortably in the top half of our database thus far, despite a smaller battery capacity.

70% Oppo A94 5G review
Source: Techradar English
The Oppo A94 5G is a solid Android phone, and it’s good as a reliable device that won’t let you down. It’s fast for a budget phone, has a good-looking screen and charges relatively quickly. However it’s hard to recommend over its more affordable siblings, as they are better value for money, and even beat out the A94 5G in a few key areas.

Comment

ARM Mali-G57 MP3: Integrated mid range graphics card with 3 clusters. Based on the Valhall architecture.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Dimensity 800U: The Dimensity 800U is a fast mid-range SoC with an integrated 5G modem. It includes two fast ARM Cortex-A76 cores at up to 2.4 GHz and six power efficient Cortex-A55 cores at up to 2 GHz. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


6.43":

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


77.26%: 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.
