Oppo AX7 Review Plans | Pricing | Specs


It's not the fastest budget handset, but the Oppo AX7 impresses with camera quality and especially great battery life.

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.

When was the Oppo AX7 released?Available in Australia from 14 January 2019
What's new about the Oppo AX7? eardrop design, 6.2-inch display and 4,230mAh battery
How much does the Oppo R17 Pro cost? $319 outright

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.

      Oppo AX7: 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.
