Oppo A31

Oppo drops yet another Amazing gadget this year. The Oppo A31 is not the first nice piece of gadget to be produced by Oppo. However I can guarantee that this piece of gadget is pretty impressive.

The one million dollar question on you mind is, is the Oppo A31 worth your money? Keep on reading to find out.

Oppo A31 Design

The Oppo A31 packs a 6.5-inches IPS LCD touchscreen. It has a water drop notch which Carry’s the 8MP front camera. A triple rear camera of 12MP+2MP+2MP vertically arranged with LED flash. The fingerprint sensor is also located on the rear panel and has a very quick response to touch.

The microSD card tray and volume buttons are located on the left side, while the power button is by the right. Its micro USB port, 3.5mm headphone jack and speaker grille are located at the bottom.

The phone has a premium look which makes it very attractive. It comes in fantasy white and mystery Black colours.

Oppo A31 Display

Oppo did a really nice job on the Oppo A31 display. Though on a budget, this display is quite great.

The Oppo A31 packs a 6.5-inches IPS LCD display with a resolution of 720 × 1600 pixels. The display has 270 PPI density and can get as bright as 480nits. This makes it perfectly okay for use under day light. The colour display is also quite decent and you are guaranteed to love this display.



The Oppo A31 smarthphone features a triple rear camera of 12MP+2MP+2MP. While the front camera is a single 8MP lens.

The camera produces decent shots. The picture quality is top notch. It may be compared with some flagship phones such as samsung or even Xiaomi mobile phones. The camera auto focusing is state-of-the-art and unlike other budget phones, you get quite steady video recordings from this device.

Oppo A31 Software

This phone packs a 4GB RAM and an internal storage of 128GB. Which makes it good for multitasking but not like the 6GB RAM of the Infinix Hot 7 pro.

Its operating system is the Android 9.p based on colours 6.1. This device comes with some pre-installed apps and stores, some of which can be deleted if you find them not useful.

Oppo A31 performance

This device runs on MediaTek MT6765V/CB Helio P35 octa-core processor, power VR GE8320 GPU that provides very fast performance. The Oppo A31 performance supersedes the infinix Hot 7, Hot 7 pro and Hot 8 in every way.

When tested with multitasking and playing heavy games, this phone passed colourfully. However, playing games that consumes more than 2GB of storage space may lead to Occasional lagging.

Overall, the performance  of this device is great compared to its competition on same price range.

Oppo A31 Battery Life

This device sports a non-removable 4230mAh battery. The life span is not too great but is guaranteed to do the job. It can last roughly a day without you jumping around from one socket to another.

The battery life is fairly okay while playing games which is more than I can say for most budget phones out there.
