Oppo A33: Design

The Oppo A33 has arrived as the new budget offering by the company. The device weighs around 186 grams and measures 8.4mm in thickness. The device features a shimmering rear panel which reflects prismatic colours with light rays falling on it. The rear panel accommodates the triple-lens camera module on the top-left and a fingerprint scanner for security. It has the volume keys and the SIM card tray on the left panel, while the right edge stores power key. The Oppo A52 has a tall 6.5-inch display which is an LCD panel with 720 x 1600 pixels HD+ resolution. The punch-hole display offers a pixel density of 269PPI. What makes this panel special is the higher 90Hz refresh rate despite the standard 720p HD+ resolution. You will have some good experience with watching movies or HD videos in the A33.

 

Oppo A33: Hardware Performance

The Oppo A33 gets its backup from the Snapdragon 460 processor which is an entry-level processor. This octa-core Qualcomm chipset is built on 11nm architecture and has a clock speed of 1.8GHz. The processor is clubbed along with Adreno 610 GPU to handle the graphics and 3GB RAM for multitasking. The handset will be able to perform general tasks with ease.

The company seems to have kept the pricing on the higher side as under Rs. 10,000, some devices offer better hardware. For instance, the Realme Narzo 20A which also has mid-range hardware comes at a lower price than the Oppo A33.

 

Oppo A33: Camera Performance

The Oppo A33 uses three rear cameras for optics. The device is packed with a 13MP primary sensor and a pair of 2MP sensors for macro and depth mapping. The camera comes with Portrait mode, Dazzle colour and HDR modes. The camera hardware is pretty basic and the device will be able to click images with decent clarity in good lighting situations. Besides, it will be able to click bokeh shots with the help of dedicated 2MP sensor. For selfies, the device has an 8MP packed inside the in-display camera cutout.

How do we rate a Device?

Rating a smartphone is a tedious process and a lot of parameters have to be considered before judging the overall performance of the device such as display, camera, processor, RAM, storage, battery, and the pricing.

So, here are how these specs will affect the real-life usage of a device and why how we meticulously consider each of these points to rate a smartphone.

Camera

Cameras have evolved a lot over the last few years and multi-camera setup is a new norm. We consider various parameters like MP count, aperture size, pixel size, image stabilization to rate a camera system of a smartphone out of 5. Any device that scores more than 3.5 can take good photos and videos and if a phone scores over 4, then it will be one of the best camera smartphones in the market.

Battery

Though battery seems like an underrated feature and we look at the battery capacity, fast charging supporting technology, and even the wireless charging capability is also taken into consideration to rate smartphone's battery capability.

Display

The display is the face of a smartphone. And there are a lot of parameters like the panel technology (IPS LCD, OLED, TFT) and other parameters also taken into consideration like the resolution, pixel density, and refresh rate.

Value for Money

A smartphone could have great specs, but if it is not priced well then you might not get the best value-for-money. So, we compare a smartphone with the contemporaries to rate the value-for-money of a device out of 5.

Performance

This aspect is decided on various sub specifics, such as availability of microSD card slot, the amount of RAM the device offers, processor capability, and the network support. This parameter has more weightage when compared to other departments.
