According to a UFC Que Choisir * study, the French spent an average of 326 euros on the purchase of their smartphone in 2019. With the introduction of 5G, this number was slightly corrected upwards, so that the average budget is more between 300 and 400 euros in 2021.
Can we afford a complete smartphone in this price range? The answer is yes. The manufacturers have achieved a real upward trend in this price segment. The OPPO A94 5G, launched in April 2021, perfectly embodies this idea of an excellent techno-price ratio.
Because if the French are usually not ready to pay more than 400 euros for a smartphone, they are still demanding. Autonomy in pole position appears among their selection criteria. The screen size and quality, the performance, the photo quality and the software interface embody the other important points when buying a smartphone.
With the A94 5G, OPPO perfectly meets all of these requirementsand it fits into the average budget of a French consumer. Point by point explanations.
Autonomy is therefore the number one choice among French consumers. Good news, OPPO has always taken care of this aspect and it has done so for all price levels.
The OPPO A94 5G therefore inherits this know-how. With its 4310 mAh battery it can last more than a day for intensive use and up to two days for more moderate use.
For example, that’s 16.7 hours of online video, 7.8 hours of gaming, or 35.5 hours of streaming music. With this performance, the OPPO A94 5G ranks among the most durable smartphones in its category.
Most of all, it is accompanied by VOOC 4.0 charging system With an output of 30 W. With this low-voltage charging technology, the smartphone can be fully charged in just 65 minutes without overheating. Who better say it?
The size and quality of the screen is therefore the second criterion of choice for consumers. OPPO has therefore taken care to integrate a very comfortable panel for multimedia use while ensuring a comfortable grip.
Thanks to an optimization of the size-to-screen ratio (only 90.8%), the OPPO A94 5G maintains a size that is compact enough for one-handed use. The margins are very thin (2mm on the top, 1.6mm on the sides and 5.53mm on the bottom) and the discreetly positioned stamp in the top left corner still saves space.
OPPO was able to equip the A94 5G with it 6.43-inch 20: 9 format screen. And from any panel, as it is based on technology AMOLED with Full HD + definition. Choosing such a screen will make it possible to take advantage of an excellent contract, beautiful brightness and 16.7 million colors. Enough to make daily use very pleasant, but also to enjoy a multimedia experience with small onions.
With power at the center of buyers’ concerns, OPPO is betting on it Mediatek Dimension 800U chip engraved in 7 nm and clocked with 2.4 GHz. It comes with a 5G modem and a Mali G57 MC3 graphics chip, 8 GB LPDDR4X RAM and 128 GB storage (expandable to 256 GB via microSD).
If the technical data is not meaningful to you, keep this in mind OPPO A94 5G meets all user needs today. If it doesn’t deliver the same level of performance as the models sold for $ 1,000, it’ll remain efficient enough to get everything done. Surfing the Internet, social networks, messaging, photo editing, video, nothing scares him.
Players can even spin the hottest licenses (Call of Duty Mobile, PUBG Mobile, Genshin Impact) no problem.
Contrary to popular belief, the photo quality of a smartphone is only the fourth criterion when buying. This does not prevent the OPPO A94 5G from deploying a very complete photographic arsenal. Its quadruple module consists of:
- a wide angle lens 26 mm (f / 1.7): 48 Mpxl (1/2 “; 0.8 µm Photosite) sensor; electronic stabilization
- an ultra wide angle lens 16 mm (f / 2.2): 8 Mpxl (1/4 ”; 1.12 µm Photosite) sensor; 119 ° field of view
- a macro lens 21 mm (f / 2.4): 2 Mpxl (1/5 ”; Photosite 1.75 µm) sensor
- a monochrome lens 24 mm (f / 2.4): 2 Mpxl (1/5 ”; Photosite 1.75 µm) sensor
Above all, OPPO accompanies all this material with functions of the Find X3 Pro, its highest quality smartphone. The OPPO A94 5G therefore adopts the night portrait mode, which, as the name suggests, allows for better quality portraits to be taken in low-light conditions.
The Dynamic bokeh is also one of the most impressive novelties. Lets you apply a blur effect to a subject while recording a video.
The OPPO A94 5G can also film up to 4K at 30 fps. It has many recording modes like HDR video, the Ultra Night Video, the AI video, the Focus tracking (follows a moving subject) thatAI embellishment (embellishes the subject) or the mode Dual view This allows you to film with the rear camera and the front camera at the same time.
The multiplication of sensors in connection with software optimizations allows the OPPO A94 5G to prove itself Very versatile in both photo and video. Enough to spark any user’s creativity.
The quality of a smartphone also depends on the ergonomics of its software interface. OPPO understood this well and worked a lot on its ColorOS overlay. Since arriving in France, engineers have modified, customized, and tweaked the user interface to create it one of the best versions of Android to date.
The OPPO A94 5G therefore inherits from Android 11 with the ColorOS 11.1 overlay. Its great strength lies in its user-friendliness, which is associated with a large number of adjustment parameters. You can change the interface according to your needs, from the shape of the icons to navigation gestures, including wallpapers, animations, etc.
ColorOS also lets you customize the display, activate an eye protection mode, or manage the audio when you’re listening to music. After all, OPPO takes care of it exemplary monitoring of updates for a better lifespan of his smartphones.
You would have understood The OPPO A94 5G is a perfect example of what we expect from a smartphone today. Affordable, it ticks all the boxes for a French consumer choice and more.
Because all of the points listed above are only part of the strengths of the smartphone. We didn’t mention any criteria that are less important to consumers, such as design or sound quality. Two points where the OPPO A94 5G is also very successful.
