2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 5 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Looks nice with a snazzy plastic shell with matte finish (though a subtle gradient finish or some kind of patterned design, as is the trend these days, would have been even better)
  • Good build quality
  • Good ergonomics
  • Face unlock works decently well
  • No rear fingerprint reader

Display

  • Large 6.1-inch display, with a modern dewdrop-style notch design
  • Legibility under sunlight could have been better

Software

  • ColorOS UI packs a bunch of add-on features like the smart sidebar, which makes multitasking more convenient
  • There is also plenty of pre-installed bloatware - though thankfully these apps can be uninstalled

Performance

  • While the Helio P22 (similar to Snapdragon 625) provides for decent day-to-day performance, the RAM being limited to 2GB means that multi-tasking is not that convenient

Camera

  • Both the rear and front cameras support Portrait mode using software algorithms, which works just fine
  • Average single rear camera, on the whole - while daylight shots are decent and offer enough details, low light performance is poor
  • Average front camera too, on the whole - again while it can click decent shots in daylight, low light shots are ordinary

Battery

  • Large 4000mAh battery means the device can easily last over a day and a half on a single charge

Verdict

  • Overall, the Oppo A1k, while it has some positives, feels a bit overpriced - especially considering that you can get a very similar specs Realme C2 smartphone at a significantly lower price

  1. Is taking on several heavyweights at this price, including the Redmi 7, Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1, and Realme 3... Unfortunately it doesn't outshine these options except in terms of battery life

  2. Just a normal smartphone with a notch and a minimal design
