As we enter the 5G era, short videos, 4K episodes and a bunch of assorted social software, with a body size like a blow-up balloon, are demanding more and more hardcore phone storage space.
Cell phone manufacturers give cell phones start with standard storage space from 16GB, 32GB, 64GB all the way up to 128GB, 256GB, but want more storage space either have to buy a flagship, or have to pay more money. However, the OPPO A2 has just been released, claiming that "it may be the most cost-effective 512GB cell phone", 12GB + 512GB version is priced at 1,799 yuan, how does this machine work, in the end, is it worth buying, let's take a look at the following detailed evaluation.
Face value of this piece, is still OPPO's masterpiece
OPPO's control of the value of cell phone design has always been very insightful, and the OPPO A2 is no exception. The color scheme provides three kinds of Ice Crystal Purple, Clear Wave Jade, Silent Sea Black, Ice Crystal Purple is the most special, in the back to make a similar winter lake ice texture, tilt the angle of the back will have a "sparkling" sense of vision, personal recommendation is also the most recommended this color. In addition, Silent Sea Black is also a versatile color, the visual effect is calm and generous.
The whole machine's grip feel, OPPO A2 give people the first feeling is quite thin and light, built-in 5000 mAh battery under the premise of the weight to 193 grams. Right-angled bezels have also kept up with the trend, and the camera arrangement has the shadow of the Reno series back in the day. A detail is that OPPO A2 adopts the "diamond anti-drop structure", can better resist the daily drop, in short, the phone is "resistant to manufacturing".
Front OPPO A2 adopts a 6.72-inch high-brush high-brightness screen, the size is large enough; the resolution is FHD +, the display effect is clear and detailed; refresh rate of 90Hz, if there is 120Hz would be better. Screen form for the center of the hole, three sides of the width control is good, the chin is slightly wide, considering the price point can be understood. The connection between the screen's cache and the center frame is well done, and it's almost impossible to feel it without looking at it intentionally.
Although it is a thousand dollar machine, but OPPO A2 screen in some details is still quite attentive, the brightness reached 680nit, outdoor sunlight to see the screen content without much pressure. The screen supports all-weather AI intelligent eye protection function, with 4096 level dimming, comfortable and natural at night, not blinding.
Smoothness, this time it's really smooth
Originally I did not have high expectations for the smoothness of a thousand dollar machine, but after experiencing the OPPO A2, it was still "refreshing" - under the ColorOS 13.1, the daily APP opening response is very fast, and the background call, multi-app switching, desktop sliding action is very fast. App switching, desktop sliding action is also very smooth with the hand, the animation effect did not make much of a discount, it seems that the optimization of ColorOS 13.1 does have two brushes.
This time OPPO A2 support RAM + memory expansion technology, you can open a key to 12GB memory expansion, equivalent to 12GB of RAM can be expanded to the equivalent of 24GB, nowadays all kinds of software are memory "crazy eaters", a larger memory can obviously provide more applications to stay in the background. The test also proved this point, open RAM + memory expansion, background at the same time open the king, chicken two games, and then cut out back to WeChat, the game of the background will not fall.
ColorOS 13.1 also brings a lot of thoughtful features to OPPO A2, such as the "family space" function, if you use the phone for elders, you can check the elders' health information in time; "Smart Shield" function, you can control the black and gray production applications. Intelligent Shield" function, you can carry out fine control of black and gray production applications, in the case of not uninstalling the application, the malicious behavior of the gray production application to intercept and control, which is the "online surfing" security protection is still somewhat useful.
In addition, OPPO A2 is a major highlight of the highest optional 512GB of storage space, many people may not have a concept of how big 512GB, a song in accordance with the 5MB to calculate, 512GB can store more than 100,000 songs; a 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray movie according to the calculation of 10GB, 512GB can be put down more than 50 whole.
Of course, our daily use of the phone can not all go to save songs, under the movie, according to the normal use of the model, the phone to download WeChat, Taobao and so on APP, plus the king, chicken and other games, the application of the space occupied by the basic 100GB, 512GB can be left more than 400GB, can be said to be more than enough for photos, videos can rest assured that you can shoot, and do not have to worry about the lack of space.
Photography, can meet the daily shooting needs
Speaking of photography, as a daily record of life purposes, it is still necessary to test the shooting level of OPPO A2. Parameters, OPPO A2 rear 50-megapixel main camera, high enough pixels, in line with the mainstream configuration of the same price.
In the actual shooting samples, OPPO A2 in the daytime under the scene of sufficient light, the finished film is a higher saturation to please the eyes of the style, shot out of the sky is blue enough, the colors of grass, trees and flowers are also bright enough, eliminating the need for additional retouching trouble.
The resolution of the 50-megapixel main camera is also good, able to better restore the details of the outline of the building. When encountering scenes with insufficient light at night, the camera will appropriately pull up the shutter time, keep the phone stable, and still be able to take night photos with a good view.
For scenes with complex light sources, the OPPO A2's suppression of flare is well handled, and there is no obvious overflow of the highlights of the light sign. It also produces a good image texture when taking such photos with strong contrasts between light and dark.
The OPPO A2's camera also supports AI scene enhancement, which can be optimized for 23 scenes that are common in users' lives. When taking real-life photos, scenes such as architecture, sky, food, plants, etc. can be successfully identified and automatically optimized accordingly in terms of color style.
When shooting, OPPO A2's camera startup and focusing speed is still quite fast, that is, point and shoot, and the difference between the finished photo and the preview frame is not too big. This price point of the phone to do a good job of photographic experience is really a good idea, do not seek to achieve the same image quality as the flagship, but to do to facilitate the user's experience of shooting on the go, this point is worthy of praise.
Endurance, 5000 mAh battery should be the standard
Battery life is believed to be a point of great concern for many users to buy a cell phone, OPPO A2 with hardware 5000 mAh battery, low power consumption, software ColorOS 13.1 power-saving optimization, to achieve a good battery life performance.
Fully charged, the actual test simulated daily 5 hours of heavy use, 5G mobile network state, including 1 hour listening to songs, 1 hour brush social chat APP, 1 hour brush short video APP, 1 hour news information APP, 1 hour king, OPPO A2's final residual power of 51%, the overall battery life performance can be, daily use of a day a charging is completely no pressure.
It is worth pointing out that the 5000 mAh battery on the OPPO A2 meets the standard of 4 years of durability, and the official said that after four years of cycling there is still more than 80% of the battery capacity retention rate, so for those who are worried about the aging of the battery, they can rest assured. In addition, OPPO A2 is equipped with 33W super flash charging, can be filled in 75 minutes, charging speed is not as fast as those models with 65W, but it is also enough.
Summary: probably the most cost-effective 512GB phone, not just empty talk!
From the actual test, this OPPO A2 looks beautiful and good-looking, the system interface is smooth, and there is a large storage capacity and first-class battery life. If you have a tight hand, you just want to buy a thousand dollars of cell phones, and you want it to run smoothly, good battery life, fast scanning speed, but also can take more photos to save more storage video, after-sales and quality is also guaranteed, or to give to the above needs of the father and mother, then I dare to say that the 512GB OPPO A2 is definitely a good choice.
