The OPPO A77, one of OPPO's newly released budget phones, certainly promises a lot for the price. For under $500, you're getting a premium design and lot of hardware, but is it worth the extra dollarydoos over OPPO's other budget model, the OPPO A57? In this post, we'll have a look at all of OPPO A77's features, with a focus on a comparison to the OPPO A57.
Body and Screen
Just like all other OPPO phones, the OPPO A77 comes with a Full-Metal unibody that gives the phone a stylish look usually only found on other premium phones. The OPPO A77 rocks a huge 5.5 inch Full-HD screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, making it a larger phone with a more detailed screen than the OPPO A57, which only has a 5.2 inch screen with 720 x 1280 resolution. If you need a large and clear screen to view media very comfortably, the OPPO A77 screen has great brightness and clarity making it a great choice. The Fingerprint scanner from OPPO is fast as always, able to unlock the OPPO A77 in a blink of an eye.
OPPO phones are known for their excellent selfie cameras, and that tradition continues with the A77. With a 16 megapixel front camera found in most OPPO models including the A57 and R9s, it is able to take some beautiful looking selfies. It also has many other selfie features like filters and beauty mode which will definitely satisfy the narcissist in you. Its back camera is a lower resolution of 13 megapixels, but it is still capable of taking really detailed shots. Both cameras have commendable low light performance
Processor and Memory
OPPO phones always pack powerful hardware. The OPPO A77 comes with an incredible 4GB of RAM and 64GB of on-board storage, which is rare to find in a phone of this price range. It is considerably more than the OPPO A57, which comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of on-board storage. High amounts of memory will allow you to store and run many applications simultaneously. If you need more storage than 64GB, there is the usual MicroSD slot OPPO have opted to use a Mediatek MT6750T chipset with Octa-Core CPU this time, allowing it to handle most basic tasks without issues.
OPPO are familiar with making large phones with 5.5 inch screens, and know perfectly well that a large battery is required to power them. The OPPO A77 comes with a massive 3200mAh battery to make sure that the A77 will easily last the day if you are a medium to heavy user, and last more than a day if you are a light user. By comparison, OPPO's last 5.5 inch phone, the R9s, had a 3010mAh battery, and was also known for great battery life.
OPPO has continued to release great budget handsets into Australia and redefine what is expected from a mid-range hardware. With a sleek metal body, large Full-HD screen, great cameras, large amounts of memory, long battery life, the OPPO A77 has all bases covered. We would recommend it to anyone who wants a great looking phone to view media and take photos for a fraction of the price other manufacturers charge. It is worth the upgrade over the OPPO A57 if you are after a larger and more detailed screen, and also want more memory.
