Recently, Oppo launched its latest entry-level smartphone Oppo A37 in India. The company priced this smartphone at INR 11,990. Really? Don’t you think this price is a bit too high for an entry-level smartphone? Lots of other companies offer high-end smartphones not only in this price range but even in less than this range. So, let’s see that should you buy this smartphone or not?
As you can see, the design of the phone looks same as the Oppo’s previous device OPPO F1 Plus which comes with 16MP selfie shooter camera. But, overall its unibody metal design is nice. In India, the device will be available in Gold and Grey color only while in China it comes with Gold and Rose gold color options.
On the front, you can see a 5-inch TFT IPS display having 720p HD resolution with 2.5D Arc Edge Glass. The display comes with the Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection. I think the screen should be of at least 1080p in this price segment. The phone weighs only 136g, makes it easier to hold which is its plus point.
Moving on to its performance, the device comes with MSM 8916 Quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz with Adreno A306 GPU. The device is packed with 2GB LPDDR3 RAM. It has 16GB of internal storage which can be expandable up to 128GB, packs a non-removable 2630mAh battery.
The device runs on Android 5.1.0 Lollipop with their own ColorOS 3.0 skin overlaid. Now moving on to its camera performance, the device comes with an 8MP rear shooter with LED flash and 5MP selfie camera, both having f/2.2 aperture and 1.4μm pixels. The low-light shot comes nice with its rear camera due to its large aperture. There are other features present in its camera like Beautify, HDR, Panorama shot etc. You can shoot even 1080p video, slow-motion video recording with its rear camera and also there is an option available for Time-Lapse video recording.
These are some main specs of the device. Now talking about some primary specs, the device has dual nano-sim support with the dedicated sim and micro-sd card slots in a single tray. The OPPO A37 supports all network bands 2G, 3G, and 4G. Almost all sensors are present in the device. Talking about connectivity, it supports GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, Wifi 802.11 b/g/n and also supports OTG.
OPPO recently entered in the list of top 5 smartphone manufacturers around the globe due to it’s strong offline and online marketing strategy. It became one of the fastest-growing smartphone brands in the world. But, Looking at all the specifications, I don’t think you should go for this device. At this price segment, lots of other better choices are available in the market.
