Oppo AX7

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.
Oppo AX7

Battery

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

  • Verdict

    • A great value, high battery capacity phone.

    Alternatives

    You're spoilt for choice when it comes to phones in this price bracket, although none of them do come close to the Oppo AX7's remarkable battery stamina. If ColorOS isn't your style, you could consider the Motorola Moto G6 or Motorola Moto G6 Plus.

    If you crave "pure" Android experiences, check out the Nokia 5.1 or Nokia 5.1 Plus.

    If you're after a modified Android look in a stylish body, consider the Huawei Nova 3i.
