Oppo A77 5G Review: Features, Specs, and Price in Nigeria

The new Oppo A77 5G is the revamped version of the A77 with interesting features including a 90Hz refresh rate, MediaTek Dimensity 810 chipset, and up to 5GB RAM extension.

Lower mid-range phones are no longer the cheap lower-quality smartphones we used to know. Instead, they’re becoming more and more capable of competing with much-more expensive phones. Oppo has taken a bold step to challenge other manufacturers by releasing a 5G capable mid-range phone. They’ve named it the Oppo A77 5G which is a step up from the previous Oppo A57.

The Oppo A77 5G was released alongside the Oppo A96, with the same selling price, but the specs aren’t the same. Our major concern is the Oppo A77 5G which has impressed us with its outstanding abilities. So if you’re planning on getting this phone, there might be some information you need to know, and we’ve gathered them through this review.

Our review of the Oppo A77 5G covers every piece of information about the phone, from the design to everything it carries within. The IPS LCD looks to be a major setback for this phone. Even the 720p resolution is the least a smartphone of such price could offer, but you could let that pass as long as there’s enough refresh rate, and the Oppo A77 5G offers 90Hz.

As long as the mid-range category is concerned, competition is inevitable. Rivals like the Poco M4 5G and Motorola Moto G62 offers one of the best display we’ve seen in the category, but none could match the Mediatek Dimensity 810 chipset in the Oppo A77 5G. So that’s enough reason to buy the phone if your primary concern is performance.

Design

If there’s one thing we should be thankful for in the Design of the Oppo A77 5G, it’s just how the phone was able to maintain a slim and light-weighted body despite having a huge battery capacity. Gone are the days when large and bulky phones are regarded as quality.

The phone measures 163.8mm in length, 75.1mm in width, and 190g in weight with straight-cut sides that narrow the plastic frame. The Oppo A77 5G flaunts the company’s stylish Glow Design, and you could have it in two colourways named Midnight Black and Ocean Blue, depending on the model you go for.

The rear feels durable and safe from attracting fingerprints and smudges. A triangular camera module is on the left corner, housing two sets of large lenses and two LED flashlights. The power button doubles as a fingerprint scanner on the right edge of the Oppo A77 5G, while the volume rocker sits on the left.

Up above the volume rocker, features a slot for inserting a SIM, while the speaker, USB Type-C port, microphone, and the 3.5mm headphone jack are placed at the bottom of the phone.

The Oppo A77 5G has passed a series of tests which includes countless drops from a height of 10cm as well as tests in 55-degree and -15 degree temperatures. Fortunately, the A77 5G has proved to be a reliable smartphone that guarantees resilience to every real-world use.

Display

The Oppo A77 5G has an IPS LCD screen that measures 6.56-inch which features Oppo’s 90Hz Colour-Rich display for a smooth scrolling experience. Having a 180Hz touch sampling rate, the display offers a very quick touch response while operating on the screen, and the color production is also impressive, delivering up to 100% of the tones in the DCI P3 color space.

The 600 nits of max brightness make the A77 5G very clear and vibrant to use indoors or outside of your home. Using dynamic contrast adjustment, each pixel of the screen is optimized to maintain clear visibility while using the phone in direct sunlight. The screen bezels are slightly tick, and there’s a drop notch cutout for the selfie camera on the top centre.

Camera

The Oppo A77 5G comes with two cameras on the rear consisting of a 48MP main camera and a 2MP depth sensor. The lack of an ultra-wide lens or a telephoto lens hurts a little, but we can rely on the main camera which captures absolutely great shots. Just like Oppo explained, there’ll be a special feature called an Al Portrait Retouching which helps distinguish gender and age.

This feature will make photos look natural by adjusting the details, including the skin of the face and neck. Another interesting feature we found on the camera of the A77 5G is the ultra-clear 108MP Image feature. This feature enables you to capture 108MP photos even when the primary shooter didn’t makeup up that pixel count.

The Oppo A77 5G has proven to be very useful for taking photos, so if you’re the type that is fond of capturing images, getting the A77 5G device will save you a lot of cash without needing to get a flagship phone. Also, the quality of photo output is excellent, both the colors and contrast levels are accurate, even for the day and night photographs.

Unfortunately, you can only record videos at 1080p resolutions on both the 8MP selfie and 48MP rear camera. This will make content creators will miss the chance of recording 4k videos, but that’s the case with mid-range phones. At least, the 1080p still works excellently for video calls, so we have no problems with it.

Performance, Storage, and Software

Having a MediaTek Dimensity 810 chipset, we can confidently say that the Oppo A77 5G works well for your daily use.

Interestingly, the Widevine L1 certification will enable you to watch movies or TV Shows by streaming online.

The MediaTek Dimensity 810 chip ensures that the Oppo A77 5G plays every game without getting hot after hours of gaming. The only issue is that some higher graphics-demanding games like APEX Legend and Genshin Impact will force you to reduce the graphics settings to the lowest level before being able to play them.

The Oppo A77 5G comes in two storage variants such as 4GB /64GB and 6GB /128GB. despite the variant you choose, there’s a dedicated slot for the expansion of memory through a microSD card slot. Also, the UFS 2.2 storage also ensures that the A77 5G loads apps very quickly.
