Reviews for the Oppo A96 5G

Oppo A96 Review - Is It Really A Gaming Phone?
Source: Manila Shaker English
This is the latest addition from Oppo to their A-series, which is the Oppo A96. It is the successor to last year's Oppo A95; there are some upgrades and downgrades from its predecessor, but according to Oppo this is considered a gaming smartphone. So today we will be putting it to test and see if it is really capable of handling games.

OPPO A96 review - Relevant mid-range phone for 2022
Source: Tech Nave English
The OPPO A96 offers good specs and a decent user experience for most people. If all you need is a phone for text messaging and browsing the internet, you won't experience any problems with this phone. Unfortunately, its RM1299 price tag means it faces stiff competition in the smartphone market. This is because you can get alternatives that offer similar or superior performance for similar prices. One alternative is the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G (RM1199), which comes with a 108MP main camera. Another option is the realme 9 Pro (RM1099) which performs on par with the OPPO A96 but has more cameras (including an ultra-wide camera). There's also the OPPO A95 (RM1099), which has an AMOLED screen for better visuals. However, that model uses an older chipset and probably won't get an Android 12 update. In fact, the phone was already lagging behind when it launched in 2021.

While it may seem like a downgrade to last year’s A95 due to a shift from AMOLED to IPS display, the A96 offers a fair share of upgrades with the processor, main camera, and internal storage. However, its asking price is steep for the specs it has to offer.

60% OPPO A96 Review: large internal storage for cheap
Source: KL Gadget Guy English
Retailing at RM1,299, the OPPO A96 is the most expensive Snapdragon 680 powered smartphone at this time of writing but has the most internal storage of 256GB, where its competition will typically come with 128GB of storage. Despite its unattractive price tag, the OPPO A96 is a good looking phone that performs typical smartphone tasks well enough, but the features it brings to the table leaves a lot to be desired, and I doubt many will actually appreciate that big internal storage since you could easily expand it with a Micro SD card anyway.

Review – OPPO A96: Actually worth the price
Source: NLT English
At the end of the day though, I think for the price of RM1,299, the OPPO A96 is indeed high in price when compared with other phones with similar specs. However, the experience it offers is actually much better than its rivals. Even the camera – even though there is only one camera – takes better pictures. I’d say the OPPO A96 is a good choice.

Comment

Qualcomm Adreno 619: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 750G) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. The performance is a lot better than the old Adreno 612.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

6.43":

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
