Oppo A73 at a glance
When was the Oppo A73 released? January 2018
What’s new about the Oppo A73? Full HD 18:9 display, 16MP selfie camera, Android 7.1
How much does the Oppo A73 cost? RRP $359

With its all-encompassing 6-inch screen, 16MP selfie camera and iOS-inspired interface, the Oppo A73 is a capable and affordable Android alternative to Apple's iPhone X.

For as much as Apple wants every man, woman and child on the planet to own an iPhone, it doesn't exactly make this easy. iPhones are among the most expensive smartphones on the market, and even older models continue to sell at a steep premium compared to their Android contemporaries. Given how much Apple plays up the accessibility and user-friendliness of its hardware and software, this is an unfortunate and often frustrating contradiction that leaves many people unable to enjoy the streamlined nature of iOS.

Chinese electronics company Oppo saw this dilemma as an opportunity for a new type of smartphone, one that channels the design tenets of Apple while maintaining the affordability of a budget Android handset. This is the philosophy driving the Oppo A73. Taking more than a few cues from the look and feel of the iPhone X, the A73 gives budget-conscious phone buyers a way of enjoying an iPhone-like experience at a fraction of the price Apple charges for the real thing.

Design

  • Follows a very similar visual design to the iPhone X, minus the notch
  • ColorOS is about as close as you're going to get to iOS on Android

Camera

  • A power-packed front camera enables higher-resolution selfies
  • Beauty mode promises to leverage the power of AI to accentuate your best features

Performance

  • Capable hardware for a mid-range smartphone
  • It's not the iPhone X, but should still be powerful enough for most people

Battery

  • Pairing a mid-range processor with a 3,200mAh battery should ensure all-day battery under typical use
