OPPO A77 with 16MP Beautify Selfie Camera: Check out the review

OPPO A77 review

The OPPO A77 is another affordable selfie based smartphone from OPPO. The sleek and beautiful device has everything for the midrange lovers, packing an improved selfie camera, fast fingerprint sensor and a Qualcomm MSM8953 Snapdragon 625.


The aluminium body of the A77 was beautifully designed and paired with the matchlessly smooth texture of the lustrous metal back panel. The smooth back easily repels dust and is a pleasure to hold and behold. If there’s one thing I like about OPPO, is their attention to details when it comes to design.


I can spot two thread-thin metallic bands traverse the back of the slim and sleek device. Thinner and lighter, the A77 is as weightless as a feather, weighing just 148g and measuring 7.4mm slim. OPPO A77 is available in three exquisite colours Gold, Rose Gold and Black.


It sports a 5.5-inch IPS LCD FHD In-cell capacitive touchscreen with screen resolution as high as 1080 x 1920 pixels. There are extremely tiny narrow bezels for a taller view when turned around. The 401ppi density makes everything on the screen as sharp as possible. Enjoy amazing visuals with nice contrast on this device. OPPO achieved 71.7% screen-to-body ratio on the A77, which is not bad for a midrange.


Under the hood is a powerful Qualcomm MSM8953 Snapdragon 625 chipset clocking at Octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 processor. The smooth and effortless device has an Adreno 506 graphics processing unit.

In terms of storage, OPPO A77 boasts of 64GB internal Storage space for saving all files. If space isn’t enough, you can upgrade up to 256GB using microSD. For heavy multitasking and app launching, its 4GB RAM should be more than enough. OPPO A77 runs on Android Nougat 7.1 Operating System with ColorOS 3.0 on top.


A77 is equipped with a 13MP camera at the back, which takes wonderful night shots thanks to the LED flash. The f/2.2 aperture lens makes photos taken in Ultra HD.

At the front, all hail the 16MP selfie camera with Beautify 4.0 technology and Bokeh effect. The selfie camera boasts of a f/2.0 aperture, which helps take superb shots even in low light.


OPPO A77 is powered by a 3200mAh Non-removable battery.


OPPO A77 is available for $299, that’s about N105,000 – N115,000.
