2022 is finally here and the impulse to gift yourself something because of that “New Year, New You” mantra is still bound to sneak in. If you’re a casual gamer or an avid streamer—whether games or movies—then a new smartphone is probably on top of your list.
But let’s be real. If we’re talking high-performance smartphones, there is the assumption that anything downright long-lasting and super durable has to be—you guessed it—pricey as hell.
However, the OPPO A95 is here to break that myth.
As you mull over this year’s gift ideas, we tried getting our hands on the OPPO A95 to see what all the fuss is about, and boy did it prove us wrong.
Let’s talk battery life
TBH, at first glance, you wouldn’t think it would pack a punch in terms of battery life due to its slim and lightweight exterior, weighing at only 175g. But the truth is, you’re actually served a 5000mAh battery, and well, that in itself already screams endless gaming.
Tie in that ultra long-lasting battery with a 33W flash charge and you’ve got the smartphone that’s bound to help you get that high score.
Now trust us when we say it’s as if this phone is ideal for the casual gamer profile. Powered by a Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM 662 and System Booster together with 8GB RAM+128GB ROM and RAM Expansion, you’ll find yourself switching from Game Space, to Game Assistant, and a little Bullet Notification here and there. Doesn’t sound so bad, right?
With that, we’re pretty confident to say that the A95 is a durable multitasking device that allows avid casual gamers to enjoy their gameplay. Not to mention, its ColorOS 11.1 also improves productivity, privacy, safety, and entertainment with a suite of different features, specially made for entertainment streaming or casual gaming.
Mid-priced phone with a look of a high-tier unit
The OPPO A95 completely debunks the myth that mid-priced phones have a subpar look to them. A stunning 6.43‑inch AMOLED FHD+ punch-hole display, paired with its stylish and comfortable design in Glowing Rainbow Silver and Glowing Starry Black colorways? This baby’s bound to turn heads.
Shots look sharp and composed
Of course, we had to try the camera which we must say is pretty competitive, too. With a 48MP Triple Camera set-up coupled with some AI imaging features, expect your photos and videos to take on a new level with the A95.
Convinced yet? Test it out for yourself, whether you’re wrapping it for someone else or treating yourself. This smartphone’s bound to deliver, whether you’re a gamer or not.
