Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Oppo A8

Oppo A8's size

The Oppo A8 is 3.0 inches (75.5 mm) wide, 6.5 inches (163.9 mm) tall, and 0.3 inches (8.3 mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the Oppo A8, it weighs about 180 oz (180 g). It feels a little heavy when held with one hand. It may tire your hand out if you operate it for too long a time.

In giving an overall rating to the Oppo A8, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

The CPU performance of Oppo A8

The Oppo A8 has an extremely high processing power of 2.3GHz+1.8GHz×8(OctaCore), so it can smoothly run any app out there with ease. Its performance ranks among the top-class of all smartphones released to date. It's well suited to running even the most demanding of 3D games with ease.

The Oppo A8 has 4GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The Oppo A8 has the overall operating speed of a high-end smartphone, so it will hardly ever cause you trouble. But you might need to be careful when using heavy apps like 3D games a lot.

Oppo A8's storage capacity

The Oppo A8 has 128GB of data storage, which is perfect for people who frequently take photos and videos. It is suited to taking both photos and videos, and is unlikely to feel inconvenient even with lots of apps or games installed.

Since the Oppo A8 is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Oppo A8's screen

The Oppo A8 has a 6.5 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The resolution of the Oppo A8's screen is pretty much standard. It shouldn't be a problem for normal use, but it might prove to be a bit dissatisfying for those who wish to better enjoy their photos, videos, or games.

The camera function of Oppo A8

The main camera of the Oppo A8 has a capacity of 12 MP pixels, and is adequate for normal use. But some users may feel dissatisfied with the picture quality.

The Oppo A8 comes with a 8 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of Oppo A8

The Oppo A8 has a battery with a quite large capacity of 4230 mAh. Compared to other smartphones, the battery life of the Oppo A8 is very good and will no doubt satisfy all your needs. You won't have to worry about the battery even when you use the phone to watch videos or play games for hours on end.

Overall assessment of Oppo A8

The Oppo A8 is a high-performance smartphone. You're not likely to experience any inconvenience in general use.
