The battery of this particular smartphone is the main highlights with OPPO claiming that its 5,000 mAh battery can be fully charged in 70 minutes with 33W SUPERVOOCTM, and can only loose 2% of its power if left overnight.

OPPO also claims that the battery can be used for 1.68 hours of YouTube streaming if charged for just 5 minutes.

In addition to that, the smartphone is also specially designed to disable over-voltage and over-current protection which therefore guarantee safe charging regardless of the adaptor used.

Also highlighted in this 7.99mm thin smartphone is the OPPO Glow Design finish which comes in Midnight Black and Ocean Blue.  Both colours offer some sort of gradient which makes the smartphone interesting to see.

OPPO also claims that the smartphone has undergone more than 130 reliability tests and over 320 quality tests with the phone offering an IPx4 rating.

Aside from the design, battery and durability, the A77 5G has dual speakers for surround-like stereo effects, while the Ultra-linear Stereo Speaker drivers output double the maximum volume of the OPPO A77 5G’s predecessor.

In the camera department, the A77 5G offers two cameras and is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 810 SoC.  The processor is an octa-core powerhouse with six efficiency-led 2.0 GHz Cortex-A55 cores and two 2.4 GHz Cortex-A76 performance cores, plus a Mali-G57 MC2 graphics chipset.

This team results in 44% higher CPU performance than the previous generation and it offers improved responsiveness for day-to-day tasks and higher frame rates when playing games.

PERSONAL THOUGHTS ABOUT THE OPPO A77 5G

For a workhorse, I think the new A77 5G is the perfect phone, especially those who do not have the time to charge their smartphones often.

The large battery which can be quickly charged, provides uninterrupted use of the smartphone, and I think this is a major selling point for the phone among those always on the move.

It falters slightly in the camera section and processor section, but if you just want a smartphone that works, it’s a good deal.
