When’s a great time to buy smartphones? When they get price drops, of course! And that happened to Oppo’s 2 budget and lower mid-range phones recently – the Oppo A1K and the Oppo A7. For starters, we thought the A7 was overpriced anyway, for the specs it packs. So, this price drop might be good for them. And with it, The Oppo A1k is now available at Rs. 14,790 and the Oppo A7 at Rs. 24,990.
Both the devices are well suited for power users as Oppo A7 and Oppo A1K are supported by a large battery of 4,320mAh and 4000mAh respectively. The battery on both phones is well suited for almost two days on normal usage.
Talking about Oppo A7, it boasts a 6.2-inch HD+ display and comes with Android 8.1 and ColorOs 5.2 on top out of the box. Similarly, the Oppo A1K has a 6.1-inch HD+ display and it runs on Android 9 with ColorOs 6 on top. They both provide similar storage of 32GB. However, Oppo A7 comes with either a 2GB/3GB RAM variant whereas the A1K only comes in a 2GB variant.
The camera quality on both the phones is fairly good keeping in mind their price range. However, for superior camera quality, you could opt for A7. The Oppo A7 comes with a dual 12MP + 2MP camera on the back and a 16MP selfie shooter. This contrasts the ones available on A1K as it only has a single camera setup both on sides. They are of 8MP and 5MP respectively. Further details about the phones can be found below.
