OPPO A71 Philippines Price is Php 8,990, Specs, Actual Photos, Release Date

Want to experience the wonders of an OPPO smartphone but you're a bit tight on budget currently?

Well, why not check out the freshly released OPPO A71 Android smartphone?

Donning a price tag of only Php 8,990, this model already comes with a handful of features that give you a glimpse of what more expensive Selfie Expert OPPO phones have.

In terms of design and build, the OPPO A71 has a sleek metal shell that exudes a feel of durability and elegance when you have the phone in your hand.

I also want to note that the rounded look of this release is reminiscent of the form factor of the flagship level OPPO R11 and of the popular OPPO F3.

The phone's 5.2-inch HD IPS display look fairly good when viewed from various angles and delivers brilliant colors, which is great for browsing photos and watching videos.

As for imaging capabilities, OPPO A71 sports a 13 MegaPixel PDAF camera at the back with f/2.2 aperture that's reliable especially in well-lit conditions or in settings with a lot of natural light.

For those who love to take selfies, the device features a 5 MegaPixel front cam, which greatly benefits from OPPO's leading beautification software that evens out the user's skintone in shots, delivering selfies that are instantly ready for sharing on Facebook or Instagram.

Under the hood, this smartphone runs its Color-OS-skinned Android 7.1 Nougat operating system with a 64-Bit Octa Core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 and Mali-T860MP2 GPU based Mediatek MT6750 chipset, has 3 GB of RAM for multitasking, and comes with 16GB of internal storage that can be expanded using the dedicated microSD card slot.

I'd say this set of innards is pretty average for an international brand in this price category; It's not the best out there but it's already acceptable. With it, you can play light 3D games on the handset and expect relatively smooth multitasking experience or running multiple applications at the same time.

The handset is powered by a non-removable 3,000 mAh Li-Ion battery pack, which is quite big given the size of the display and the internal hardware. For me, this is one of the strongest selling points of this release.

OPPO A71 is now available at all OPPO Concept Stores and authorized retail partners nationwide. It's out in two colors: Gold and Black.

The official retail pack already includes a soft gel case with matte sides, which should help prevent accidental slippage when you're holding the handset.
