Prons of Oppo A16e
- It’s Affordable to buy in any store In Nigeria.
- The Oppo A16e is a selfie-centric phone. It offers great camera features and incredible selfies.
- The selfie camera has a 16MP rear camera and 5MP front camera which allows you to capture stunning photos and videos with it’s ultra-wide angle feature that covers more of your surroundings and minimizes distortion, even if you’re taking a photo of yourself in front of an expansive backdrop.
- Selfie lovers can choose from modes such as Selfie Panorama, Face Slick, Lighting Effects, Lipstick Mode, Baby Slice, Fun Gif and more to help them get their best shot.
- Additionally, face recognition software automatically detects faces for quick and easy focus on friends or family when taking selfies or group shots with the device.
Cons of Oppo A16e
- The sales of Oppo A16e is great according to our review but it was discovered that the battery can only last for a few hours and that the internal memory is very low.
- The phone has no fingerprint scanner which means that the security feature of android has been left out.
- Oppo A16e design also leaves much to be desired because of its use of lower quality materials instead of metal or glass used in other phones and tablets.
I’ll recommend this smartphone as an affordable budget phone with a fast processor and enough RAM.
In Nigeria, the Oppo A16 is available on Jumia and other top smartphone stores for only 54,000 naira. It’s worth buying if you’re looking for a low-cost smartphone that performs well, has a large display, a long battery life, and can handle multitasking. It deserves to be considered as an option for anyone on a tight budget because it is a phone that will not break the bank while still providing a premium experience.
