With strong marketing skills and active communication with their customers, OPPO has successfully won hearts of millions. OPPO is amongst the few smartphone manufacturers that target on providing mid-range Android smartphones. Along with giving a tough competition to other brands with their high-end technology integrated smartphones at cheaper costs, OPPO phones are known for their high-definition camera quality.

Growing with technology, OPPO smartphones offer great front cameras specialized for high definition selfies. The OPPO A83 is a budget phone launched on January 2018 with a price tag of Rs 13,990 in India. The fine minimalistic design makes the handset easy to handle and carry. The feature that sets this phone above the rest is the integration of AI Beauty Technology in the selfies camera and an HD+ full-screen display.

A Detailed Review

Aside from the OPPO A83 features mentioned above, the phone has a rounded metal back with a matte finish. However, the matte finished back acts as a fingerprint magnet that can give a messy appearance after continuous use.

Similarly, the screen is also smudge-philic. Even when you try to clean the fingerprints, it becomes pretty hard to get the clean finish again ultimately giving up on the procedure. You can unlock the phone only through face detection as there is no fingerprint sensor provided in the smartphone. The 3180 mAh battery gives a decent charging speed, and the small size makes it easy for one-handed use.

The sharp edges of the screen might hurt while swiping diagonally from the sides of the screen. Although the brightness level is given a standard view indoors, it becomes difficult to operate the phone in the sunlight. The slight color shifting feature is adept for a smartphone of this range. But, unlike other smartphones, you have not got a choice to adjust the display color. One of the best features is that we can use the complete 18: 9-inch screen. The ColorOS takes up 10 GB storage space from the phone due to which only 22 GB is available for the user which is too less even for nominal phone usage.

The 3 GB RAM restricts a smooth gaming experience for the user. The major drawback of the phone is that the only face unlock system does not work well at a dim light as the front camera cannot detect the face efficiently at low lighting conditions. Overall, the OPPO A83 is a mid-range phone that can be perfect for an average user.
