Review user interface from ColorOS 7.1 Oppo A92
EbizzTec dedicated a special section to the ColorOS 7.1 Review Oppo A92 that was embedded on the Oppo A92 on the basis of Android 10. Why? This is because ColorOS 7.1 has been transformed into one of the best UI (user interface) at the moment. It is quite reasonably seen from the updates it brings, far compared to version 7 and below.
Oppo calls ColorOS 7 one of the biggest updates they have ever released to provide the best experience to loyal users of the ColorOS UI. Especially for this update, Oppo emphasizes its focus on the “Smooth and Delightful” experience.
The ColorOS 7.1 update brings many changes, one of the highlights is the Quick Tools feature that is on the side of the screen but does not interfere. This feature is to facilitate users to access various applications and functions of the cell phone quickly.
There is also a minimalist design improvement to the logo. On the Oppo A92, users can customize the shape of the icon, also overhauled to be more elegant and easily recognizable. Users can also customize the size of the application icon according to taste.
Then, Oppo designs automatically customized icons for a number of third-party applications, so that the display remains in line with the overall theme. For example, Google’s application icons are changed in the ColorOS 7.1 style. This is one of the characteristics of the latest Oppo UI.
One thing that is championed from the ColorOS 7.1 display is the presence of dark mode or dark display options. There is support for security features such as locking a smartphone with a password, PIN, fingerprint, and better face recognition.
Gaming features, Game Space in ColorOS 7.1 can maximize RAM usage by up to 40 percent better, and increase smartphone performance by up to 30 percent. This performance improvement is indeed felt when opening an application or starting a mobile game that feels faster. In addition, the transition movement is also smooth, not lagging.
Review Maximum performance in the middle-class Oppo A92
When it comes to performance, we first look at the innards of the Oppo A92 powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 (11 nm) Octa-core 4×2.0 GHz Kryo 260 Gold & 4×1.8 GHz Kryo 260 Silver and GPU Adreno 610. Yes, there is no difference from the brain used between the A9 2020 and A92 cellphones.
Even so, the processor is capable of doing various things, starting to run many applications simultaneously or multitasking, playing contemporary games that can still run smoothly, to process good photos. Oppo A92 is also supported by a capacity of 8 GB RAM and 128 GB ROM.
EbizzTec benchmarked the processor used by the Oppo A92. The result is that the processor is still quite fierce in the middle class. The score achieved is also not inferior to competitors in the same class. However, the matter of graphics or GPU still looks low when compared to newer processors.
Review Gaming test Oppo A92
This test uses two games Call of Duty: Mobile and Asphalt 9. In the CoD Mobile game, the Oppo A92 can still be played smoothly with “High” graphic quality settings and “High” frame rates. The game is fast-paced and there is no lagging and FPS does not drop dramatically.
While the Asphalt 9 game with the “High” setting is still running well, there are some scenes that make the FPS drop dramatically and cause the game to lag a bit.
The experience of playing both games is still fairly good. The device does not overheat quickly, maybe because the metal frame surrounding the body can release the temperature properly.
Testing the Oppo A92 battery uses the PCMark 2.0 benchmark application which has a Battery Test feature. The test results of the Oppo A92 can last up to 14 hours 47 minutes. So you could say this 5,000 mAh battery capacity is quite reliable for everyday needs.
Fair use for social media, playing games a few times, watching videos, and running a number of benchmark applications, cell phones can last all day. Battery charging is quite fast, with a built-in charger that already has 18 W of power can charge from 20 percent to 100 percent in just 1 hour 39 minutes.
Review A capable 48 MP camera Oppo A92
Switching to one of the main features of the Oppo A92 is the camera. This phone has a configuration of four rear cameras, each 48 MP Ultra-clear main camera (f / 1.7, wide, 1 / 2.0 ″, 0.8µm, PDAF), 13 MP (f / 2.2, ultra-wide 1 / 4.0 ″, 1.12 µm, 2 MP (f / 2.4, depth), and 2 MP (B / W, f / 2.4).
The ability of the Oppo A92 camera is satisfactory during daily use. The focus of using a 48 MP main camera with F / 1.79 aperture so far has been able to provide maximum results, a large resolution that still gives sharpness and detailed photos.
48 MP camera results if the zoom still provides clear picture details, this is due to pixel binning technology that combines four images in one frame. Especially if the HDR and Dazzle Color modes are activated, the results are able to provide better colors, brighter, and there are bold accents.
The 48 MP camera sensor also offers an excellent Dynamic Range, as a result being able to capture detailed photos during backlight and overexposure conditions such as outdoors. This was reinforced by the lens opening F / 1.79 enough to receive light.
AI Scene Recognition feature also works well to recognize photo objects, such as food, plants, water, scenery, and others. AI technology plays an important role such as lighting for more vivid photographs.
Of course, available Night Mode or night mode is still good enough to reduce noise from the photos. It would be better if taking night photos with this mode using a tripod or both hands because it takes up to eight seconds to capture images.
How are the results of the bokeh, B / W, or black and white and Ultra wide? Okay, we discuss first from Portrait or bokeh photos, which basically still use the main sensor 48 MP, it’s just that for this mode, shooting is assisted using a 2 MP camera.
This sensor can measure depth better and provide additional detail so that the tracing of the blur area looks smooth and soft. Focus on the photo object in front also looks maximal.
The 8 MP camera sensor can be used for two functions, namely for Ultra Wide mode and also Macro Mode. AI recognition on the Oppo A92 software will automatically read to take ultra-wide pictures or macros. The results of ultra-wide photos are pretty neat, not too much noise, while photo macros can see object images better.
Meanwhile, the 2 MP B / W camera also works best for black and white photographs. The Oppo A92 camera also offers other features, such as Expert Mode for manual settings for professionals who use enough parameters such as ISO, Shutter Speed, White Balance, Exposure, and Auto Focus. Other features, Stickers, Google Lens, Panorama, Time-lapse, and Slo-mo.
Go to the 16 MP resolution selfie camera (f / 2.0, wide, 1 / 3.1, 1.0µm, HDR). For selfie needs the Oppo A92 camera is quite satisfying with the support of HDR features and additional filters that can be used as desired. Even so, the selfie camera still has limitations when the nighttime photos are not very good.
For video recording, the Oppo A92 is capable of recording with maximum quality of 4K / 30 FPS or Full HD / 60FPS. Unfortunately, there is no Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) feature and only uses the Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS). Meanwhile, for slow-motion, video resolution only supports 720p.
The following is the video recording of the Oppo A92 combined with the default application Sloop, without editing.
Oppo dares to position the A92 as the most sophisticated mid-range smartphone at the moment. This is natural, in our opinion, because there are indeed some advanced technology and features present in this device.
These features are more than enough to support daily activities and lifestyle. Users who are active on social media, photography, playing games, or just simply chatting.
We like the modern and elegant design, allowing users to show off their cellphones and show them as identity. The rear body also does not get dirty quickly, and the shape of the cell phone is compact, lightweight, and comfortable to hold.
The performance is also quite good, but it is hoped that there will be an increase in the next series with newer processors. About the camera, do not doubt. The 48 MP camera works best and is ready to accompany each of your best moments.
The price of the Oppo A92 is priced at $ 280 and can be your first choice if looking for a cell phone to help with activities and lifestyle. Compared to competitors, the taste of the price is quite affordable.
