2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Decent, simple design
  • Good day-to-day performance backed by the solid Snapdragon 450 - gaming, video-streaming on Netflix or constantly moving back and forth between apps - you will usually not face any lags or glitches
  • Decent rear camera, with a good auto HDR feature - colors are natural, and noise levels are minimum
  • Decent (though not exceptional) front camera too
  • Good battery life - will comfortably last the day with moderate use
N/A
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The 16:9 aspect ratio design is now starting to look a little old-school
  • No fingerprint sensor
  • The HD display on the A71 is also not the best under direct sunlight
  • Front camera is decent, but given that Oppo advertises it as the main USP of the phone, it could have been better
  • 16GB onboard storage is on the low side for 2018 and can become an issue if you install large number of apps on the phone
  • On the whole, the Oppo A71 is a reasonably decent phone on its own but will find it difficult to stand up against some real tough competition from the likes of the Redmi Note 5, which is superior to it in most respects
