OPPO A92 is the newest mid-range smartphone from the company and it’s the successor the OPPO A9 2020. The OPPO A92 does have similarities to the previous generation but we’re getting some upgrades in here and a better look. Check out my review of the OPPO A92 below:
OPPO A92 Review: Design and hardware
The OPPO A92 that we got comes in twilight black and the design of the smartphone does look gorgeous for me with its reflective design at the back that points to the camera of the smartphone and the light shifts depend on the angle that you’re looking at the smartphone.
It’s still a glasstic build for the OPPO A92 that feels fine for me but the smartphone does have a very ergonomic design thanks to the quad-curve edges of the smartphone which is why the smartphone does feel ergonomic despite its size.
At the back, the smartphone does have a protruding camera at the back with a quad-camera setup. Thankfully, the smartphone’s fingerprint scanner can be found on the power button of the smartphone and not at the back which makes the smartphone cleaner to look at.
Below the smartphone is where you can find the USB-C port of the smartphone and it does support 18W Fast charging along with the 3.5mm headphone jack and the speaker grill of the smartphone.
OPPO A92 Review: Display
We got here a 6.5-inch Full HD+ display and thankfully, we got here a better resolution and a better quality. The punch-hole cutout on the smartphone’s display does add to the beauty of the smartphone. The cutout of the selfie camera isn’t that large too so it doesn’t block too much of my view.
The colors that we got are fine and the brightness of the display looks really fine for me and it’s very usable under direct sunlight.
OPPO A92 Review: Battery Life
In our battery test of the OPPO A92, we got a score of 13 hours of 33 minutes which isn’t that bad considering that the smartphone packs a 5000mAh battery which is pretty big and the Snapdragon inside the smartphone is pretty power efficient. This can power your smartphone up to a whole day or more in your normal usage.
OPPO A92 Review: Software and Performance
The smartphone comes with ColorOS 7.1 based on Android 10 and it comes with a heavily skinned UI with themes and colors that are really easy to the eye. Of course, it does come with some apps including theme store, ORoaming, OPPO Relax, and many more. Of course, swiping to the right from the home screen gives you the smart assistant.
This might be a new generation of OPPO smartphone but it still uses the same Snapdragon 665 processor inside paired with 8GB RAM. The performance is pretty much the same as the previous generation. Yes, the smartphone is power efficient thanks to the Snapdragon 665 processor and it can run most of the apps that you need but it isn’t the most powerful chipset today and the Snapdragon 665 is getting a little dated.
In our benchmarks, the smartphone performed as expected. Check out the benchmarks of the smartphone below:
As expected, the numbers aren’t that high in its price range but again, these are the numbers that you can expect from this smartphone since we’re still running the same processor. But again, this will be fine if you’re just running basic apps and games. Speaking of games, check out our gaming test of the smartphone below:
So there we go, the OPPO A92 might be able to run some of the new games available in the market but you’ll have to tone down the settings to enjoy it.
OPPO A92 Review: Camera
For the camera of the OPPO A92, there’s the quad-camera setup at the back with a 48MP sensor, 8MP ultrawide, 2MP macro, and a 2MP depth sensor and then there’s the 16MP selfie camera on the front and in our usage, the smartphone does take good shots on the smartphone. It might not be the best but it takes some decent shots. In our selfies, the smartphone did a pretty good job too. Check it out below:
OPPO A92 Review: Verdict
The OPPO A92 is out in the market for a while now and it does have a lot of competition in its price range and the OPPO A92 will do just fine. It’s not the best in terms of performance but it does its job well in the camera department. It’s a fine daily driver and if you want a decent Android device that you can use everyday then you can consider this smartphone.
