OPPO have been shaking up the smartphones market for the last few years by releasing affordable but excellent phones. Can it keep it up with its latest budget phone release, the OPPO A73? In this post, we'll take a look at all the features of the new OPPO A73.


Screen and Body

The OPPO A73 has a massive 6.0 inch screen at a Full-HD+ 1080 x 2160 pixels. This allows for very vibrant and detailed viewing, making the OPPO A73 an excellent phone for multimedia viewing. OPPO has also gone down then 18:9 ratio and minimal bezels path, so the OPPO A73 is still relatively comfortable to hold despite its large size.

Design-wise, the OPPO A73 does not disappoint, with small bezels, curved edges and being 7.5mm thin all contributing to a phone that is pleasant to look at and easy to hold. The usual fingerprint scanner is located below the camera. Dual SIM slots are in the tray, making it a great feature for those who use two sims. The A73 Dual SIM is 4G/3G as well, allowing both to operate simultaneously.


OPPO has always been known for its selfie cameras on their budget phones, and the A73 continues that trend. With a 16 megapixel back camera and a 13 megapixel front camera, the OPPO A73 is capable of taking some vibrant shots. The usual features of Geo-tagging, HDR, panorama, time-lapse are all there, and there is also beauty mode to give your selfies a fresher and younger look. Image quality for both cameras have impressed, with excellent detail and colour reproduction even in low light conditions.

Processor and Memory

The OPPO A73 comes with 32GB of on-board storage and 3GB of RAM, which has become an excellent combination, allowing the OPPO A73 to store and run many apps and media simultaneously. If you require more storage through, a MicroSD slot is included to allow you to expand storage further up to 256 GB. The OPPO A73 is powered by a Mediatak MT6736T chipset, or as more commonly known as the Helio P23. The Helio P series has impressed with its recent releases, allowing for fast speeds in real world usage. As a result, the OPPO A73 will be able to handle most tasks and apps with no lag.

Battery Life

A great phone is of no use if it is out of power, and OPPO has recognised that, always placing a great focus on battery life. The OPPO A73 is packed with a 3200mAh battery to allow the phone to easily last the day under medium to heavy usage. If you do find yourself low on juice, the A73 charges fast, allowing you to quickly top up.


OPPO has done it once again, releasing a budget handset which covers all features well. A large 6 inch screen, attractive minimal bezel design, great cameras on both the front and back, ample amount of storage, a processor that is fast, and decent battery life makes the OPPO A73 an excellent option to consider. We would recommend the OPPO A73 to anyone that wants a capable phone in all departments for a wallet friendly price. Where to buy?
