Review – Oppo A54

An interesting new mini Trend has emerged in the high-end smartphone market right at the corner of the mid-range segment. Smartphones like the Oppo A54, the Redmi Note 10 and the Motorola Defy Mini all are offering impressive 5G connectivity at just about the same price as it was a few months ago. That s cheaper than what it’s ever been before to get online connectivity with broadband speeds. The question then becomes if this low price is enough to actually make the difference when it comes to real world usage? Well let’s find out.

The first thing that I would like to discuss is the lack of camera connectivity on the Oppo A54. It lacks an optical zoom feature which makes it a little less flexible in terms of image capturing power. It does allow you to click more pictures but the improvement is very minimal and it doesn’t do a lot of justice to the prices which it ends up costing. When it comes to a smartphone camera, I personally find that a lot of smartphone manufacturers have yet to make the grade with their camera department and so far the best we have seen from them all is the Nokia E71.

Speaking of the camera department, the Oppo A 1954 has an excellent resolution, optical zoom, a primary camera with decent picture quality, a secondary camera which is not too bad and of course a decent sized display for the phone. Compared to some phones like the  oppo a54  LG Optimus or the HTC Desire I think this rear camera setup works pretty well. I am not entirely convinced though that it is enough to take high quality photographs.

In general, the Oppo A54 is a decent device but if you are looking for something with a lot of wow factor then you will have to look elsewhere. The main problem I have with the Oppo A54 is that its screen does tend to be a little on the small side. For someone who uses a smartphone for a lot of uses, this could be an important feature. If you plan on taking a lot of pictures in the low light mode then I would suggest putting off the ability to enlarge the screen which can cause the images to look a little wispy. If you are looking for something with a larger viewing area, you can always use an external flash.

The camera on the Oppo A54 is also quite small in comparison to other smartphones in its class. At first, I found that it struggled to register even a clear shot of the Oppo A54 and it seemed that the depth of field was poorly defined which lead to some image blurring. Fortunately, there is an easy way to remedy this problem.

One of the best things about the Oppo A Dylan is the phone’s battery which clocks in at a very impressive level at 4.4 hours. To put things into perspective, this is a full day’s worth of use rather than the usual usage we see with some smartphones. This extra bit of power delivers impressively when using the camera which is one of the major highlights of this phone. I am also impressed with the speed of the Oppo A Dylan and the fast charge ability; it managed to make me spend under five hours on the device and still have enough juice to last me through a week.
