Oppo A73 5G Review: Performance, Specs, and Price in Nigeria

Oppo A73 5G: A beauty to behold

The Oppo A73 5G is a smartphone released in 2020 by the Oppo company as one of her most affordable smartphones with high performance. The Oppo A73 5G features a lot of cool specs in both software and hardware. One of the key selling points of this smartphone is its solid performance, powered by the MediaTek chipset which also supports a 5G network for fast network connectivity.

The Oppo A73 5G sounds familiar when you remove the “5G” tag. The truth is that Oppo released this phone in two variants, which means there is also another Oppo A73 but no 5G in its name. So the “5G” makes a lot of difference not just with its name but in design and internal configurations like camera, display, chipset, battery, and as well price which shows they’re two different smartphones. To cut the story short, the Oppo A73 5G comes with a higher specification than the normal Oppo A73.

Now, speaking of the Oppo A73 5G, it may not be the best mid-range phone considering its camera as a 16MP main camera might seem too small for die-hard Instagram users who love taking pictures. But for those who would prefer a solid performance from a smartphone, the device brings you a non-stop speedy performance from the MediaTek Dimensity 720 chipset. The battery capacity is also nice though this phone should have done more, at least to give the non-5G variant a very huge gap.

To help make the right phone choice, here’s everything we know about the latest Oppo A73 5G alongside its current price in Nigeria.

The design of the Oppo A73 5G is well-polished. We didn’t spot any new design innovation as everything is just like a well-designed normal handset. Meanwhile, Oppo’s A series weren’t known for having those flashy design aesthetics. The Oppo A73 5G might not be sizable for a small hand as handling it with one hand might be a difficult task for those who prefer using it that way. The phone’s huge screen pushes its dimensions to 162.2mm in length, 75mm in width, and weighs around 177g which makes this phone feel light on your palms to make up for its large size.

The power button which doubles as a fingerprint scanner and the volume buttons were separated to the right and left corner respectively. There is also a wide selection of ports for this phone. A 3.55m headphone jack is available for those who need it. There is also a USB Type-C port, SIM and a micro SD card slot. The Oppo A73 5G is available in two colours including Navy Black and Neon.

The back panel contains a squared camera bump which houses a triple camera setup and a LED Flash. The design of the Oppo A73 5G looks very unique in its simple form. With these two brilliant colour options Oppo chose for this phone, you will definitely get the best out of the designs.

There is a 6.5-inch display screen for watching content. The display screen comes with an IPS LCD panel which has a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels and 405 ppi density. With up to 408nits of max brightness, the display screen offers a sufficient brightness level and sharp contrast which makes the phone comfortable to use whether during the day or at night. The display screen occupies up to 83.9% of this phone’s front surface which sounds like a huge one, while the aspect ratio is 20.9.

All these make for a wonderful experience while watching movies, photos, or any other content with the Oppo A73 5G. There is also a 90Hz refresh rate that delivers a smooth experience while scrolling through your screen. The display screen also features a cutout at the top left corner of the screen which houses the front camera for taking selfies.

We were expecting an improved camera with the Oppo A73 5G, but we still get the same 16MP as the normal Oppo A73. Out of the three-camera setup which the Oppo A73 5G brings to the table, you are getting a 16MP sensor with f/2.2 aperture as the main shooter. However, the main camera along with the LED Flash is good enough to take some nice photos.

As for the other cameras, there is an 8MP ultra-wide sensor (119°) with f/2.2 aperture and a depth sensor of 2MP with f/2.4 aperture. The camera still does a nice job when it comes to taking photos and exposing the original colours of the environment. You’re still getting a lot of shooting modes like the Panorama, HDR, and Night Mode for taking night shots.

On the front camera, there is an 8MP sensor for selfies, video calls, and recording videos, while the normal Oppo A73 comes with a 16MP front sensor putting this phone in a big disgrace.

Performance, Storage, and Software

In terms of performance, the Oppo A73 5G seems to have something more valuable and that’s the MediaTek chipset. This phone is powered by the MediaTek MT6853V Dimensity 720 5G chipset which is an octa-core processor manufactured using a 7nm process technology. This means the phone is quick with its performance. You don’t have to experience any lag while you perform some of your daily tasks like browsing the internet, scrolling through your media feeds, and multitasking.

And if you love playing games, whether it’s competitive or graphics-intensive, the Oppo A73 5G is up to the task as you won’t experience any system malfunction or high-degree heating. The chipset is accompanied by a MALI G57 MC3 GPU for quality graphics.

For memory, the Oppo A73 5G comes with 8GB of RAM that’s paired with 128GB of internal storage. This phone has provided enough storage space to store your videos, music or any other files and documents. If the provided storage isn’t enough for you, there is a dedicated slot for the expansion of memory via SD card up to 1TB.
