The good

  • Battery lasts for ages.
  • Decent dual lens camera.
  • Teardrop notch design.

The bad

  • Very slow to charge.
  • No NFC.
  • Not particularly quick.
  • ColorOS can be annoying.


Oppo spent the latter part of 2018 dabbling in the higher end of the smartphone market, first with the interesting (but not quite compelling) Oppo Find X and then the much more interesting Oppo R17 Pro.

Still, it's a company built on the promise of delivering more phone for less money, which means it's traditionally offered more handsets in the budget and mid-price range. That's precisely what you get with its first phone in the Australian market in 2019, the Oppo AX7.

Design

  • Glaring Gold or Glaze Blue finishes look nice.
  • Teardrop notch, but you can't obscure it.
  • Fingerprint sensor placed high on the body.

Camera

  • Dual rear lenses.
  • Front facing wide angle lens.
  • Overall pleasing performance for its price.

Performance

  • Snapdragon 450 isn't exactly fast.
  • ColorOS remains clunky in places.
  • ColorOS still gives an iPhone feel.

Battery

  • 4230mAh battery gives superb endurance.
  • Very slow to charge back up.
  • Verdict

    • A great value, high battery capacity phone.
