Hundreds of smartphones are introduced to the market every month, and many of them chase experimental features or feature a spec sheet that is imbalanced. Very few smartphones actually focus on getting the basics right, and the OPPO A9 is one of those rare phones. The OPPO A9 was launched in India last week with a price tag of Rs 15,490, and for that price, it gets all the basics right: a large waterdrop screen, a stylish design, fast processor and ample storage space, two cameras on the rear, a high-resolution selfie camera, the latest publicly available version of Android with additional features, and a high-capacity battery that helps the phone last a whole day even with heavy usage. What more can you ask for in a smartphone, especially at that price?
Even before you turn your smartphone on, the first thing you (or people around you) look at is its design, and OPPO has nailed it with the A9. It not only features a big screen at the front with minimal bezels to maximize the screen-to-body ratio, but also comes with a gradient color pattern that is in vogue these days. OPPOÃ¢â¬â¢s choice of colors is brilliant, too. The OPPO A9 comes in two color variantsÃ¢â¬âFlourite Purple and Marble GreenÃ¢â¬âboth of which are brilliantly attractive. No matter which way you look at the A9, it looks like a fine jewel, thanks to its glass-like shiny back, curved corners, smooth back that tapers towards all edges of the phone, and a shiny gold trim that is decorated around the fingerprint reader and the dual-camera assembly. Even the buttons are exactly where they should be for better ergonomics.
Whether youÃ¢â¬â¢re watching the latest episode of neon-induced Stranger Things on Netflix or looking at your lovely memories, a big screen always helps in getting the best experience possible. The OPPO A9 has been made with keeping that aspect in mind. It has a 6.53-inch Waterdrop Screen uses an IPS LCD panel with Full HD+ resolution (2340Ãâ1080 pixels), 178-degree viewing angles. The screen has an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 and has been jointly developed by using 46 patents.
