Oppo smartphones have always been known to deliver outstanding performance and capture good selfies. While 2016 saw the premium-category Oppo F1 and F1+ receiving rave reviews, 2017 has been all about the Oppo A57 and its stellar performance in spite of a lower price tag starting from Rs.12,999. The Oppo A57 packs quite a punch when it comes to an affordable smartphone with a great camera. Here’s why you should consider buying the latest Oppo mobile phone on EMI.


Oppo A57 Camera

The A57 features a 16MP front camera with an f/2.0 aperture and full HD video recording capabilities. It offers outstanding image quality that is rich in detail and boasts of beautiful colours, even in daylight, with zero noise. It also has a flash that can help you click great photographs even in the dark. These are some of the features that make Oppo A57’s camera one of the best in this price range.

There is a provision for different settings, including various capture modes like normal, touch, voice, and gesture. The settings also include a timer and image cropping into a standard, rectangle, or full screen. There are filters and patterns that can be used on your image, and you can preview them all before taking the final photo. Additionally, you can make animated GIFs and capture photos with double exposure as well. The list of interesting settings goes on with a beauty mode and a front panorama mode that allows wide-angle selfies.

The rear camera on the Oppo A57 is equally loaded with great functions. It is 13MP with an f/2.2 aperture coupled with a phase detection autofocus. Daylight images from the camera are outstanding, even when captured indoors. The list of settings in full manual mode includes an ultra-HD resolution, GIF-making option, double exposure, and the standard set of filter and pattern effects.


Oppo A57 Hardware

The A57 boasts of very competent hardware that includes an octa-core Snapdragon 435 processor, a 2900mAh battery, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal memory. The performance is refined and smooth, with no issues at all with respect to gaming and multitasking. Unless you are a constant user with lots of video-capturing needs, the 2900mAh battery is enough to easily last all day. The Colour OS software on top of Android version 6.0 is a treat for those looking for non-intrusive processes. It also supports power-saving features and gesture-based shortcuts for a great overall experience.


Oppo A57 Design

The A57 shares a similar design to the Oppo F1, with striking similarities in most elements. Although it looks less premium-quality than the F1, its design is nonetheless very attractive for an affordable-range smartphone. Its build quality is quite solid due to the metal frame but has a light weight. There are no backlit capacitive buttons, but the home button is capacitive and integrates a very responsive fingerprint sensor. The phone’s matte textured body provides a better grip, so you don’t have to worry about the phone slipping from your hands.

The Oppo A57 carries a 5.2” IPS display that supports HD resolution, and the images are remarkably sharp from even from a nearby distance. Brightness is very well-maintained in both sunlight and the dark. The saturation of colours is spot-on, and viewing angles are impressive. The availability of Gorilla Glass 4 and two screen guards make for a very attractive and secure smartphone experience.

Overall, Oppo A57 is one of the best smartphones in the range of Rs.20,000, especially if you are looking for an excellent camera phone that can get most tasks done efficiently. Consider the Oppo 32 GB phone in gold for an even more exclusive feel.
