OPPO claims that it’s 13 megapixel camera is capable of shooting 50 megapixel photos, which is nothing but a little gimmick and a software trick. It helps capturing better quality photos but the 50 megapixel claim is a little exaggeration.

Now lets jump into the pros and cons.

Pros:

  • A big display and thin bezels
  • A decent camera
  • An audio jack
  • A decent battery

Unfortunately, in our opinion, we haven’t found any other good things to say about this.

Now, for Cons:

  •  low resolution screen for the price
  • We never recommend buying a Mediatek chip with this price
  • Kind of low internal storage 
  • No fingerprint sensor
  • Outdated software
  • No fast charging

Now, I get it, you’ll get a lot of positive reviews of this product (for reasons unknown) and if you want to click a lot of selfies, go for it (maybe), but for that much money, you should definitely look for other options as well.
