Oppo A94 5G Review

The Oppo A94 5G is a reliable Android smartphone that is fast for a budget model and has a beautiful screen. It also recharges relatively quickly. Among its main advantages are 5G network support and performance.

The device was launched in the spring of 2021 in the company of two other Oppo products, the A54 5G and A74 5G. Compared to them, it features 8 GB of RAM and a more impressive screen.

Design

Oppo A94 5G visually does not differ much from the familiar Android phones on the market. It lies nicely in the palm, but can not be described as compact. However, its weight is light - under 175 grams. It is ideal for people who do not like giant smartphones.

Its plastic back collects fingerprints easily. That's why we recommend using the Oppo A94 5G in a case. While the manufacturer doesn't state what its splash protection is, there is.

One of the features of the model is that it has an in-display fingerprint scanner. If you prefer facial recognition technology, no problem - it's available too.

Display

This Oppo model has a 6.43-inch Super AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 60 Hz. On the latter metric, it's inferior to its brethren we mentioned a moment ago. However, the movement of the picture is smooth and pleasant. Super AMOLED technology provides brighter colours and better contrast.

The screen resolution is 2400 x 1080 pixels - standard for devices at this price. The maximum brightness reaches 800 nits, which is a decent benchmark.

It is impressive that the screen occupies almost 85% of the front side of the Oppo A94 5G. This brings it closer to the look of more expensive models on the market.

Performance

The Oppo A94 5G relies on a MediaTek Dimensity 800U chipset coupled with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. The RAM is ample for a model in this price range, and the storage you should know cannot be increased.

The smartphone may not be the most powerful among its brethren. However, it provides smooth performance and speed. You can use the typical everyday applications without a problem.

The presence of 5G is an advantage. To it we must add the Android 11 operating systemand the ColorOS system from Oppo. Unlike other Chinese manufacturers, this one does not load its products with unnecessary applications.

Cameras

Oppo A94 5G is equipped with a quad rear camera, the main module of which is 48-megapixel with an aperture of f/1.7. It is complemented by an ultra-wide 8-megapixel camera and a 2-megapixel macro sensor. Another 2-megapixel sensor measures the depth of the frame to take photos with a bokeh effect.

On the front of the smartphone is a single 16-megapixel camera with an f/2.4 aperture. It is wide-angle and impresses with its good performance for this price range.

With the Oppo A94 5G, you will take good macro shots and bright and detailed photos during daylight hours. Sometimes the background blur is inaccurate, but with practice you'll clear up that challenge.

Video enthusiasts will be happy to learn that it can record videos at resolutions up to 4K but at 30 frames per second. As well as a basic shooting mode, you have a number of others - panorama, pro, slow motion, portrait mode and so on.

Autonomous operation

Oppo A94 5G is equipped with a 4310 mAh battery. On average usage, you can count on a full day of charging, but with more intensive usage, you'll need the charger. If you tend to play games continuously, the smartphone will need more frequent recharging.

You get a charger in the box. 30W fast charging technology is supported, but not wireless charging. At this power you can schedule new 100% battery in less than an hour.

Conclusion

Oppo A94 5G is among the smartphones of 2021 that have received emphasis on certain features, while in others a compromise has been made. You can find it in the market in several colors - black, silver and blue. It's worth having for the beautiful Super AMOLED display, which renders colours well and is high contrast.

While it doesn't take professional-level photos, it has a set of cameras that will delight you with interesting shots worthy of sharing with friends and on social networks. It also supports 5G networks and comes bundled with quite a bit of RAM. Among its cons is the absence of a memory card slot.
