1. Design

Right out of the box, the phone attracts you at first sight. The front of the smartphone is dominated by a 6.22-inch HD + display, a dewdrop-style Notch that houses the front camera and is surrounded by thick bezels. The front-facing smartphone interface is similar to that of other smartphones in its segment. What sets the smartphone apart from other phones is the diamond-cut edge design at the back. The rear part of the smartphone is made of plastic, but it doesn’t lose the premium of the product. There’s a horizontally aligned dual camera with LED flash and fingerprint sensor on the back. This sensor is quite responsive and accurate.


The SIM tray and volume rocker are on the left side. The left edge is the traditional position of the SIM tray, the volume rocker is also located right in the SIM slot for easy searching and the power button is on the right side. With a time when all phones had a headphone jack with a charging button, Oppo kept the traditional style to create a highlight for itself. Overall, the look of a smartphone is important and the Oppo A12 is a perfect fit to hold in your hand.

2. Screen

The smartphone is equipped with a 6.22 unch HD + IPS screen panel and is protected by Gorilla Glass 3. When indoors, the true sharp display does not disappoint when watching movies and playing games. The device comes with Night Shield so your eyes won’t get tired when used in low light conditions. On the other hand, since there is no Widevine L1 DRM, you cannot enjoy HD streaming on Netflix or Amazon Prime Video. However, at this mid-range price, the display of the phone ranks as good as possible.


3. Camera

The Oppo A12 is equipped with a dual camera setup on the rear of the body. It has a 13MP primary sensor and a 2MP secondary sensor. The rear camera captures pictures with good color accuracy and detail, full and sharp shots. When it comes to night photography, this phone is able to capture more light than its line-up as it can open the shutter for a length of 30 seconds. Photos taken at night are also clearly displayed and consistent with the cost.

For selfies, it has a 5MP front-facing camera sensor. Speaking of its magnification capabilities, the smartphone offers a 5x digital zoom mode but is still able to deliver satisfactory outputs even in photos selected in 3x- 4x mode.

4. Performance

The Oppo A12 is powered by MediaTek P35 SoC, an octa-core processor considered comparable to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 665, performs perfectly well and is even better than competing competitors. The smartphone comes with up to 4GB of RAM and up to 64GB of internal storage. The phone works quite well when playing games with high graphics settings, but if playing for many hours, it can overheat, which is the case in most phones.
