The A52 was released in 2020. It’s a handset that looks premium and has a large display and matte exterior. Its front stretches 6.5 inches across.
How thin is it? You’re looking at a 162 mm x 75.5 mm x 8.9 mm unit.
It’s got some weight to it at 192 grams. This makes it feel premium.
The panel on its front is IPS LCD. If you’ve read our reviews before, you’d know that it’s not the most vibrant. Oppo made its display 480 max nits. 500 is the gold standard. You’ll easily be able to use the phone outdoors, however.
There’s barely any bezel action going on. It has an 83.4% screen-to-body ratio. Its front is sharp too. How do you feel about 1080 x 2400 pixels?
You don’t have to worry about denting its display – the manufacturer placed super strengthened glass on it.
Sadly, you can’t pick it up in many colours. It’s only available in black and white. The white is more ivory with a mint gradient.
As it was released this year, it isn’t surprising that it runs Android 10 out of the box. It’s available through Oppo’s ColorOS 7.1 software. It’s a UI that is very customizable.
You can pick it up with a lot of RAM. The options available are 4, 6, and 8 gigs. Storage-wise, it comes with 64 and 128 GB. Whichever variant you choose, you’ll be getting a MicroSD slot. This means that you can expand its storage.
The chipset housed is the Snapdragon 665. It’s a mid-range chipset but it can handle most of what you throw at it.
Its fingerprint sensor is super snappy. It’s on the rear and is easy to reach.
Let’s talk about its battery, which is big. There is a 5000 mAh unit inside of it. The A52 lasts around 2 days. Of course, you can prolong it longer with its battery saving modes. Unfortunately, its battery is not removable. You’ll be charging it through 18 W fast charging. You can expect it to go from 0-100% in around 2 hours.
If you’re expecting reverse or wireless charging, get ready to be disappointed.
As you can imagine, the handset is thick thanks to its massive battery. We think it’s a fair trade-off.
In the camera department, it does well. There is an impressive quad set-up on its rear. It consists of a 12 MP wide lens, an 8 MP ultrawide lens, a 2 MP macro lens, and a 2 MP depth sensor. There’s a powerful LED flash as well. Its primary camera does alright, but shots aren’t the best in low-light.
On its front, there is a single shooter. Depending on which variant of the mobile you bought, the MP of its selfie camera would differ. You can pick it up with either 16 or 8 MP wide sensors.
How much does it cost? The Oppo A52 can be purchased for Rs.40,000 – 48,000 islandwide.
