Oppo phones are best known for their camera capabilities that enable you to capture your favourite memories wherever you go. The Oppo A37 continues this legacy with its strong cameras that can take great photos in all situations. Besides its cameras, the Oppo A37 also has other specs that make it a great budget smartphone to have.
When it comes to looks, the Oppo A37 sports a design language that rivals more expensive models. It has a metal back that gives it a premium look which you will not expect from a smartphone with its price tag. It has tapered edges and a subtly curved back that makes it easy to grip in the hand which is important if you are always on the phone. The dimensions of the Oppo A37 are 143.1 x 71 x 7.7mm while weighing only 136 grams, making it a lightweight device that you can bring along with you anytime without much burden.
In terms of display, the A37 comes with a 5.0-inch HD IPS display that has a 1280 x 720p resolution and a pixel density of 320ppi. The screen provides decent colour reproduction and visual quality for a wallet-friendly smartphone. Although the device only supports up to 720p viewing, most videos on YouTube are best viewed on this ratio, which means you will not be missing out much anyway.
Furthermore, the device also supports Eye Protection mode that filters out the “blue light” emitted by the screen, reducing the strain on your eyes when you look at the display at night. Although the screen might not be a match compared to flagship devices, it performs up to expectations and will suffice for day-to-day video-watching on the device.
The Oppo A37 runs on a Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor that is mated to 2GB of RAM. This combination provides acceptable performance for basic everyday usage including web-browsing, texting, and checking emails. Out of the box, the phone comes with a 16GB internal storage which can be expanded up to 128GB with a microSD memory card which is useful for users who enjoy filling their smartphones with games and apps.
In terms of the cameras of the device, the Oppo A37 has an 8MP rear shooter and a 5MP selfie lens. The front camera comes with a variety of selfie-centric features that are usually seen on high-end selfie experts including beautification, Screen Flash, and Palm Shutter for you to get the perfect selfies to upload on your social media accounts. The rear camera performs well in all lighting conditions; the photos taken are colourful and detailed without being oversaturated.
Another impressive feature of the Oppo A37 is its battery life. The device is powered by 2,630mAh battery that can easily last through the day which eliminates the need to carry a power bank everywhere you go. When it comes time to recharge the phone, the Oppo A37 can go from 0-70% in only 30 minutes as it supports fast-charging technology, enabling you to stay productive all day long.
