2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Nice, minimalistic design - the front is absolutely clean and bereft of physical controls, the bezels are tiny and the design brings the attention on content instead of the hardware
  • Slim and light
  • Over at the back too, the OPPO A83 exudes a premium look - despite being made of plastic, the phone looks and feels great - the sides of the phone gently curve over to the front and end in a ridged edge - this makes the phone sit comfortably in the palm while making it easy to get a grip with your fingers
  • Good looking 18:9 edge-to-edge display - which has also allowed OPPO to install a larger 5.7-inch display into the footprint of a much smaller screen - the entire phone for that matter has a small footprint that fits comfortably in your hand and feels fantastic at it
  • The OPPO A83 runs the ColorOS UI over Android - it's pretty decent and very similar to iOS in a lot of regards
  • Good speed/performance, comparable to Snapdragon 625 phones - day to day usability is smooth, and generally, the phone performs well whatever you throw at it
  • Decent rear camera - take solid shots with accurate white balance, and fast autofocus in good lighting conditions
  • Good front camera - takes pretty good selfies under most conditions - and has a AI driven 'beauty' engine
  • Good battery life - will last a full day of use - and comparable overall to its top competitors - the Mi A1 and the Moto G5S Plus
  • On the whole, the OPPO A83 is an interesting and stylish competitor to the Mi A1 and the Moto G5S Plus, and definitely worth a second glance
  • Premium looking build, and aesthetically done design - the Redmi Y2 looks like the love child of the Redmi Note 5 and the Redmi Note 5 Pro (although the build here is all-plastic)
  • Also has 'Face Unlock' which works reasonably well, and there is very little delay between the phone recognising your face and unlocking (understandably, the only time it struggled was in dark-ish environments, but at these times, you can always go back to using the fingerprint sensor or the good old passcode)
  • Nice, modern 5.99-inch screen with a tall 18:9 aspect ratio
  • MIUI has been vastly improved over time, and is not as heavy as the previous versions - it is also one of the most refined, aesthetic Android UIs
  • Powering the Redmi Y2 is the solid, capable Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset (same as the Redmi Note 5) - and it ensures good performance in all but the most demanding use cases
  • The USP of the Redmi Y2 is of course the very good, AI-infused selfie camera, that also does Portrait mode - the results come out very good, especially in good lighting conditions
  • The rear dual-camera setup (12-megapixel+5-megapixel), which too is AI-driven, is pretty decent too in good lighting conditions - in portrait mode, the camera is able to click photos with just the right amount of blurring
  • Very good audio quality and speaker loudness
  • Good battery life - during regular use, the battery is good enough to sail through the day on a single charge
  • Decent charging speed (though there is no fast charging) - the battery can be charged from zero to 100 percent at a shade under two hours
  • On the whole, if you like clicking a lot of selfies, and sharing them on social media, the Redmi Y2 is the perfect smartphone in the budget range - you can think of it as a device with the camera of the Redmi Note 5 Pro, the performance and efficiency of the Redmi Note 5, and the build and affordability of the lower end of the Redmi range - it is a worthy alternative especially to the Redmi Note 5 (the Redmi Note 5 has better battery life, and better screen resolution, but the Redmi Y2 has the better camera)
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The side volume keys and power button tend to wobble a little
  • There is also no fingerprint scanner here, and although there is decent face unlock functionality, its not the best in low light, or if you are not looking straight into the camera - when it doesn’t work, you’re back to using the plain old passcode
  • The display quality is decent, but the resolution could certainly have been better
  • Rear camera performance in low light is average
  • Supports the old mircoUSB standard, instead of the modern USB-C standard
  • The display is good, but its resolution could have been higher
