Oppo A31 features

A Camera for every occasion
We are presented with three camera lenses on the back panel of this phone. Oppo A31 comes with a 12 MP Triple Rear primary camera setup. These three consist of a main 12 MP wide shooter, a 2 MP macro and a 2 MP depth depth sensor. By now we are used to such an arrangement with phones nowadays so at large I am only compelled to mention what each lens does. Take note that a primary 12 MP shooter on a mid-tier smartphone could prove wanting. But it does take some nice photos when scenes are well light. While the macro lens lets you zoom in on tiniest details, the depth sensor helps create more stunning portraits.
Oppo A31’s selfie camera is an 8 MP, f/2.0 HDR photo taker. If you recall, when Oppo made its entry in Kenya it sold under the slogan, The Selfie Expert. A few years down the line and the company has evolved quite a lot and now offers more than just selfies. This selfie camera of Oppo A31 takes some nice looking and beautiful selfies. It even shoots videos at 1080p@30fps just as the primary camera. However, let us note that the camera performance of this phone doesn’t seem like the main focus of it – pun intended. It feels like the trade-off was made with the cameras because 12 MP + 8 MP really ain’t that much.
3D Aesthetic Design
Its dimensions are 163.9 x 75.5 x 8.3 mm and it weighs close to 180 grams. Of course its body is made out of plastic otherwise it would cost more than it does now. Oppo would have us know that this phone’s three striking new colors are inspired by nature. They are Fantasy White, Lake Green and Mystery Black. The white one however does borrow its inspiration quite a lot from Vivo Y19. Anyway you will see Oppo branding on the back, a fingerprint scanner and the triple camera setup. The front features its 6.5 inches display with a noticeable chin. Whatever others may say, Oppo A31 is a beautiful looking smartphone. You will feel the difference when you hold its thinner curved body.
Immersive Viewing Experience
Oppo claims that the newly designed Nano-Water-drop Notch of Oppo A31 is 31.4% smaller than before. But we think what really matters here is that the display is a massive 6.5 inches IPS LCD touchscreen. If you are curious to know about its screen to body ratio then know that it stands at 89%. This is quite an estate especially for playing games and watching videos. The experience is quite entertaining. What also excites it that this display offers 480 nits typ. brightness. This means you will be able to see it even while outdoors. But we must hate to learn that it comes with a 720 x 1600 pixels resolution pixels and a rather low ~270 ppi density. Nevertheless, this is an okay display panel.
Internals and OS
The two versions of Oppo A31 are with respect to storage capacity. These are 64 GB with 4 GB RAM or 128 GB with 4 GB RAM. I think 4 GB RAM is quite a generous random memory capacity for this phone. And with internal storage you can further expand it using a micro SD card up to an additional 256 GB. Now that is fun.
Oppo A31 runs Android 9.0 (Pie) with ColorOS 6.1 straight out of its package. I wouldn’t really want to say this is disappointing but, being the Q1 of 2020, Android 10 would have been appreciated even more. And I will not encourage you with false hope of an upgrade. Maybe Oppo A31 will get it, but most probably it won’t. But moving on, Oppo A31 is powered by a Helio P35 (12nm) chipset, an a 2.3GHz Octa-Core CPU and a PowerVR GE 8320 GPU. With these Oppo A31 not only runs smoothly, but also requires lower power consumption.
All-Day Big Battery
With the 4230 mAh Battery of Oppo A31 you get Up to 14 hours of video streaming, 7h of gaming and 111 hours of music playback. Oppo does not officially mention any fast battery charging technology here. But be rest assured there is a microUSB 2.0 port here.
