  • Average battery
Verdict

Just like the other smartphones from the Chinese manufacturer, the Oppo A79 is a much worthy device for the price tag it offers. The performance of the device is outstanding, being stimulated by an octa-core processor and a huge RAM. The cameras are also good enough and the storage is more than enough. But what lets you down is the average battery backup of the device. If you are looking for a feature-packed device at an affordable price range, set your eyes on the Oppo A79.

A classy device
Display and configuration

The Oppo A79 flaunts a crisp display of 6.01-inch with a pixel density of 402 PPI, resulting in a sharp resolution of 1,080 x 2,160 pixels. The capacitive touch screen is quite responsive to multi-touch and comes protected by a v5.0 corning gorilla glass. The smartphone works well with the help of an octa-core  (2.3 GHz, quad-core, Cortex A53 + 1.65 GHz, quad-core, Cortex A53) processor, which comes paired with a 4GB RAM to assist stable performance during multitasking. The graphical interface is taken care by a Mali-G71 MP2 graphics unit, which allows decent gaming experience as well.

Camera and Storage

The handset houses a 16MP rear camera with LED flash, autofocus and ISO control which together results in a crystal clear image resolution. If you are concerned about taking selfies, there is a 16MP front camera that does not disappoint you on that front and also is efficient enough to provide good quality video calling experience. It comes with an inbuilt memory space of 64GB, which is quite huge to fulfil your storage needs. However, you also have the option of expanding the memory up to 128GB by using a microSD card.

Battery and Connectivity

The Oppo A79 is fuelled by a 3,000mAh Li-Polymer battery, which allows you to spend time with your device without much interruption. The smartphone houses a wide range of connectivity features, including 4G, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, v4.0 Bluetooth, microUSB 2.0, hotspot and a 3.5mm audio jack.
