SoyaCincau’s best smartphones under RM1,000 (2019)

Oppo A7

Next up, we have the Oppo A7, which has a pretty big 4,230mAh battery sustaining the device. It has a 6.2″ HD+ IPS display, and is powered by the Snapdragon 450. 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM is certainly sufficient, while the dedicated microSD slot (up to 256GB) is a pretty nice addition.

For photography, the camera is a relatively basic setup: a 3MP, f/2.2 main sensor, along with a 2MP depth sensor for bokeh effects. You also get a HDR-enabled 16MP selfie camera housed in the water-drop screen as well—there’s also an actual 3.5mm headphone jack included on the device.

Overall, not really the best device to get. The Snapdragon 450 is pretty underpowered if you compare it to some of the competitors on this list—especially if you consider the price tag of the Oppo A7.
