A detailed review for Oppo A9 2020

What is more, the HDR mode is efficient but it does not always come with the natural look. At some points, the color temperature of photos would be rather inconsistent, especially when there is no sky to act as a baseline reference. Otherwise you can control the color temperature on your own in the Manual mode.

Camera

The Oppo A9 2020 comes with a lot of cameras, four on the backside and one on the front. Two of the cameras are made with very low-end hardware, just a 2MP sensor, but considering its affordable price, the phone is worth noting.

The main camera is integrated with a 48MP sensor along with an f/1.8 lens. The second camera is an ultrawide with a sensor of 8 megapixels. The two 2MP sensors are activated for depth shots or black and white photography.

In spite of the fact that the phone utilizes a depth sensor of low quality, its background blurring capability for portrait photos is really outstanding. Cut-out fidelity is over the average.

Nevertheless, you may encounter some problems with the 2MP cameras. The phone can capture both black and white photos and images with blurring background when the extra sensors are not activated. In other words, you may not notice any difference whether you block the two sensors or not.

What is more, the HDR mode is efficient but it does not always come with the natural look. At some points, the color temperature of photos would be rather inconsistent, especially when there is no sky to act as a baseline reference. Otherwise you can control the color temperature on your own in the Manual mode.

Software

The Oppo A9 2020 operates on Android 9 version and Oppo’s ColorOS 6 interface. Moving to ColorOS would be a little bit jarring for the first time as it keeps making use of square app icons, which is different from the standard Google UI or Samsung’s.

The Oppo A9 2020 utilizes five rows of app icons in the app drawer instead of the four ones. You can pack every screen with shortcuts, which turns this phone to be an enthusiast one rather than just a basic option. The dock on the home screen takes up a lot of space. You may not like this at first but after you put more icons into, you can realize that you do not need as much space as you might have expected before.
