Review of the product design of the Oppo A83

Rating of the ease of carrying it around and getting it in and out of bags or pockets

When deciding whether to buy an Oppo A83, the first important factor is its size. Smartphones are used daily, and so it is important how easily they can be carried around and pulled out of bags or pockets. This review assesses how easy it is to carry the Oppo A83 around and put it away.

Ease of grasping it in your hand to carry around

The Oppo A83 is a size that can easily be held in one hand. Even when holding it along with other things such as a wallet, its size makes it difficult to drop accidentally.

Ease of carrying it around when placing it in your pocket

It doesn't feel strange even when you put the Oppo A83 in a pocket. In addition, when sitting on a chair with the phone in a pocket, it can be kept comfortably as it doesn't get caught on one's clothes or body.

Ease of getting it in and out of your pocket

The Oppo A83 has a size that makes it relatively easy to keep and take out. While it sometimes get caught when sticking out of the pocket, I think it is just a matter of getting used to it.

Ease of getting it in and out of your bag

The Oppo A83 is a size that allows you to take it in and out of your bag and use it with ease. Also, since it is compact, even if your bag is small it won't get too bulky which is convenient.

Assessment of user-friendliness and ease of handling

It is important to consider the ease of using the phone in one hand. It can be said that it would be very useful if it is easier for you to send emails and instant messages or answer calls using one hand while cooking or using your computer. Here, we have reviewed the Oppo A83 by focusing on the ease of using it in one hand and the ease of typing in letters.

Ease of grasping the phone in one hand

The Oppo A83 is a size that allows you to have a firm grip even while using it. Since your hand is kept stable, it is difficult to accidentally drop the phone, and it is very easy to use. Since the original body size is small, the phone is still easy to hold even when using a case.

The weight you feel when using the phone with one hand

The Oppo A83 is light, and I think it can be operated with one hand for a long time without feeling tired. However, it may be a bit heavy for those who are not used to using smart phones. Also, as it is not a heavy smart phone, its weight does not really change when a case is added.

Ease of pushing the upper button on the screen using one hand

Holding the Oppo A83 with one hand tends to feel unstable when buttons are displayed on the edge of the screen. The size of the buttons doesn't make it impossible but it does make it more likely that you will drop it so take care.

The size of the buttons on the App

The buttons displayed on the Oppo A83 are large, and therefore it is difficult to press the wrong ones. While some buttons may look small depending on the app, you probably won't feel that stressed when you actually use it.

Ease of typing in letters using the flick function

Keys on the Oppo A83 can be pressed even when held with one hand, but your grip may weaken when trying to flick the buttons at the edges. As a result, it may become unstable in the hand when flicking quickly, but it won't be easy to drop as long as you are careful.

Ease of typing in letters using the keybord funtion

If you aren't being careful it is really easy to mistype when using the Oppo A83 with two hands since the buttons are so small. In addition, typing at high speeds is pretty difficult and I can't say its very suited for it.

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

For people who use their smartphone on a daily basis, high performance is a rather important factor. When the performance is not good enough, then, for example, applications don't work as they should or the screen is difficult to see, and this causes stress. This review looks at whether the performance of the Oppo A83 is suitable for making phone calls, messaging, or using SNS.

The size of the letters and the ease of operation

Because the display of the Oppo A83 is much larger than ordinary phones, characters are displayed quite large. Therefore, it is suitable for reading long bodies of text and exchanging long messages while doing research.

Ease of reading sentences

Since the Oppo A83 displays characters smoothly, it can display them beautifully. Even when viewing small characters, the jaggedness of the character outline is not at a level seen during normal viewing and is displayed very naturally. Because of this, it is difficult for your eyes to become tired and make the phone suitable for reading long bodies of text.

The beauty of the overal screen

The Oppo A83 can display photos and videos beautifully. While people with good eyes can see jagged outlines when they look at the display up close, it is not really something of concern.

Ease of writing sentences

For the Oppo A83, the on-screen keyboard covers part of the screen when typing, but there is sufficient space for operation. Its size is suitable for entering long sentences, but I feel it may be a bit clumsy when editing office documents.

Does it have sufficient performance to make calls and send emails?

Whether it be a phone call, mail, or during a chat, the Oppo A83 provides smooth performance. Even when using the phone in demanding situations, you can use the phone comfortably since there will usually be no lag.

Does it have sufficient performance to search for things and using Social Networks?

If it is just SNS such as Facebook and Instagram, and some internet searches, the performance is enough. As a result, you will hardly ever find yourself frustrated or annoyed when using this phone.

Does it have sufficient performance to do other tasks while searching for things and using Social Networks?

Even if you start multiple apps at the same time or switch between apps frequently, you will have smooth performance. It can be said that the performance is more than enough if you just do research and SNS.

Summary of Oppo A83 performance and functions

The size and weight of the Oppo A83

The body of the Oppo A83 is 2.9 inches (73.1 mm) wide, 5.9 inches (150.5 mm) long, and 0.3 inches (7.7 mm) thick. Also, the screen size is 5.7 inch, and it weighs 143 oz (143 g). Its size is large compared to normal smart phones. While it may be slightly difficult to use with one hand, the screen is large and easy to see. I think this is a nice balance. It is recommended for those who want large screens instead of operating with one hand. It weighs roughly the same as an average smartphone. Though noticeable, the weight is acceptable and easy to handle.

The battery life of the Oppo A83

The Oppo A83 has a battery capacity of 3180 mAh. The battery's capacity is slightly larger than standard smart phones.

The processing capability of the Oppo A83

The Oppo A83 uses the Mediatek MT6763T Helio P23 CPU with 2.5GHz×8(OctaCore). The memory capacity is 4GB. With a CPU of quite high performance, it has processing capability way above normal smart phones. It is hard to find cases where its performance is lacking from the perspective of CPU performance, and you can even say it is excessive. In addition, it has way more memory compared to normal smart phones. From the perspective of memory, I don't think you will ever feel there is not enough memory. Conversely, it is way too capable for uses such as searching the Internet and messaging.

The camera of the Oppo A83

The Oppo A83 has a back camera with 13 MP. The front camera has 8 MP. Its rear camera has slightly better performance compared to normal smart phones. While there are times when I feel it is lacking, it is able to take pictures with satisfactory quality almost all the time. The front camera performance is also roughly the same as a standard smartphone. The image quality for longer distance photography is less than satisfactory, but on the whole, there are no issues with short distance photos.
